As we go about our day to day life, the world all around us is becoming more brutal. There is infanticide as babies brought to full term are being killed. There is powerful anti-Israel/anti-Jewish sentiments around the world, and even in the United States Congress! The opioid epidemic is raging even as more laws are passed to approve of recreational drug use referring to marijuana. “No-go” zones are sprouting up everywhere as Muslims, under Sharia Law, rule their “turf” with violence. Violence is raging around the world as the New World Order drives forward like a railroad train toward their agenda for a One World Government. The Holy Bible offers guidance; “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:” Matthew 7:13 Entering by the Cross of Jesus Christ is that narrow gate.
The Holy Spirit is being rejected as preference is given to the spirit of the anti-Christ! The Message of the Cross of Christ, for the remission of sin, is being replaced by “tolerance” for the imperfections of an evolutionary and genetic process. Faith in God is being ridiculed as the components of the system of the anti-Christ coerce people to adhere to the modern god of knowledge in this technological age. The evilness is all around us as Jesus Christ said that it would be just before the rise of the anti-Christ; “For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,” Matthew 24:38 There will be heaviness and sorrow: …. and I will camp against you round about, and will lay siege against you with a mount, and I will raise forts against you.
Envision the distance between this earth and where the Kingdom of God is currently located. The Apostle Paul says he entered into the 3rd Heaven, which is the Kingdom of God. Up to the blue sky is the first heaven, the stars above the blue sky is the second heaven, and the 3rd heaven is where the Kingdom of God is, which is above the stars. What Jesus Christ did for us on the Cross bridges the gap between Heaven and Earth! To be cursed to live life crawling on the dust of the earth, not reaching to the Cross of Jesus Christ, is about as far from Heaven as a person can be. That is what happened to the serpent who deceived Eve, “And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:” Genesis 3:14.
I envision the serpent becoming a worm, an earthworm, a nightcrawler which really does eat the earth.
Isaiah, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit says; “And thou shalt be brought down, and shalt speak out of the ground, and thy speech shall be low out of the dust, and thy voice shall be, as of one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground, and thy speech shall whisper out of the dust. Moreover the multitude of thy strangers shall be like small dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passes away: yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly.” Speaking out of the ground is demonic words filled with blaspheme and hatred towards God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. Even the multitude of immigrants, or strangers, will be like small demons, like small dust which are many! The many numbers of Godly, noble, and righteous people will pass away instantly, which sounds like the rapture! “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” 1 Corinthians 15:52
“Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.” Read the Book of Revelation to see an exact picture of this thunder, earthquake, great noise, storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire. The Great Tribulation is brought on by the anti-Christ, and will usher in the Battle of Armageddon! For those of us who accept what Jesus Christ did for us on the Cross, we have an eternal Home in the New Heaven and New Earth, but those living in the spirit of the anti-Christ has an eternal place in the Lake of Fire, to share a dwelling place with Satan and all his co-horts. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
“Woe to Ariel, to Ariel, the city where David dwelt! add ye year to year; let them kill sacrifices.Yet I will distress Ariel, and there shall be heaviness and sorrow: and it shall be unto me as Ariel. And I will camp against thee round about, and will lay siege against thee with a mount, and I will raise forts against thee. And thou shalt be brought down, and shalt speak out of the ground, and thy speech shall be low out of the dust, and thy voice shall be, as of one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground, and thy speech shall whisper out of the dust. Moreover the multitude of thy strangers shall be like small dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passes away: yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly. Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.” Isaiah 29:1-6
