In the previous chapter, it was written about the free-trade routes being destroyed, referring to the shipping industry of Tyre and the ships of Tarshish. The shipping industry is taken over by the system of the anti-Christ to become a delivery system for the redistribution of resources based on the 666. That mark-of-the-beast only allows buying and selling based on loyalty to the system of the anti-Christ. Therefore, the delivery system is geared to deliver to areas most loyal to the anti-Christ. In today’s scripture verse, it speaks of how the entire land, all the ten global kingdoms, are emptied and turned upside down, leaving none unaffected. This definitely is part of the extreme tribulation that is happening in the world under the reign of the anti-Christ. Eventually, the human injustices, disparities, and atrocities lead to the Battle of Armageddon, and then the return of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ returns to destroy the destruction! Through it all, there is deliverance; “And it will come to pass, that whosoever will call on the name of the LORD will be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem will be deliverance, as the LORD has said, and in the remnant whom the LORD will call.” Joel 2:32 The Salvation we have by the mercy of God is found at the Cross of Jesus Christ.
“Behold, the Lord makes the earth empty, and makes it waste, and turns it upside down, and scatters abroad the inhabitants thereof.” The one and only unifying force in this world is the Holy Spirit. Wickedness opposes the presence of the Holy Spirit, meaning that there is opposition to all the qualities in the spirit that unifies people. Those qualities include the Holiness of God’s love, goodwill, peace, goodness, joy, and perseverance. Those qualities enable us to experience the redemption of humanity, not the separation and tearing down of what Christ Jesus did for us on the Cross. When we toss aside faith in God, toss aside the Message of the Cross of Christ, and toss aside the presence of the Holy Spirit, then God is going to make the earth totally empty, a wasteland, turns it upside down, and scatters all the earth. That is exactly what happens during the reign of the anti-Christ. as read about in the Book of Revelation.
Even today, the New World Order is proceeding in the development of the ten global kingdoms. Those ten global kingdoms come with iron clad walls at their borders. Those walls and borders scatters the inhabitants of the land. For example, refugees trying to migrate from the Union of African Republics into the British Commonwealth of Nations, or into the United States of Scandinavia are prohibited from doing so. That’s because Africa is a kingdom of its own, not belonging to the others! BUT, the kingdom of the United States of America includes Central America, therefore it becomes inhumane not to let them migrate across open borders at Mexico. All of this activity is from the general population of people. The anti-Christ seizes power by manipulating governments through the general population of people. This includes border disputes! This is the work of the modern god of knowledge that cleaves to the flesh to manipulate thought and actions. “Then shall stand up in his (opposition to the anti-Christ) estate a raiser of taxes in the glory of the kingdom: but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle. And in his estate shall stand up a vile person (the anti-Christ), to whom they shall not give the honor of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries. And with the arms of a flood shall they (the governments) be overflown from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant. Daniel 11:20-22
Under the reign of the anti-Christ, the redistribution of resources is going to be so imbalanced and unequitable that many, many people are going to be affected negatively. That reveals how many people rejects the 666, the mark-of-the-beast, the god of knowledge that cleaves to the flesh. Isaiah tells us that in this day, “And it will be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.” And John in the Book of Revelation writes; “And when He had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.” Revelation 6:5-6 We hear how badly in shambles the country of Venezuela is right now, and the anti-Christ will come to power by claiming to provide a global solution to the shambles happening to the “raiser of taxes.” That solution will involve a cashless society through technological advances, and will be demanded by the masses of people who are under the influence of the god of knowledge.
“And He summoned the crowd with His disciples, and said to them, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. “For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. “For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul? “For what will a man give in exchange for his soul? “For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.” Mark 8:34-38
“The earth mourns and fades away, the world languishes and fades away, the haughty people of the earth do languish.” “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” Matthew 24:35 “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.” Revelation 21:1
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
“Behold, the Lord maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof: And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the Lord hath spoken this word. The earth mourns and fades away, the world languishes and fades away, the haughty people of the earth do languish.” Isaiah 24:1-4 King James Version (KJV)
