God warned believers: “Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns were ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name” (Rev. 13:1). “And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, that kingdom will break in pieces and crush all the others” (Dan. 2:40). “After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns. I was considering the horns, and there was another horn, a little one, coming up among them, before whom three of the first horns were plucked out by the roots. And there, in this horn, were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words” (Dan. 7:7–8). These three passages all speak of Antichrist, and his kingdom that is now rising to rule the whole world for the last seven years of this present age.
What’s your worldview of the next six to eight years? Will freedoms flourish? Will the NWO deliver a global utopia? Will the WHO be truthful about the origins of pandemics? Do you trust the untested and deadly vaccines that have now killed thousands and maimed tens of thousands? Do you trust Bill Gates’ influence on vaccines though he’s not a doctor? Do you trust Dr. Fauci after his numerous outright lies? Do you trust government mandates of lockdowns, masking and vaccines? Does it instill confidence knowing that Bill Gates is the largest farmland owner in the US while demanding that the rest of the world eat plant-based meat substitutes? Do you believe planned food destruction is a Right wing conspiracy? Do you believe the dozens of food plants that recently burned to the ground are coincidence? Do you believe the sudden lack of fertilizers for the planting of crops is mere coincidence? Do you believe the sudden mandate to euthanize millions of cattle, chickens and pigs is coincidence? Do you believe the engineered climate crisis is not deliberate? Do you believe Klaus Schwab and his WEF’s claim that under the Great Reset you’ll own nothing and be happy? Do you believe the UN’s 2030 Agenda will eradicate world hunger and poverty, creating global equality and unity? Do you trust the International Court of Justice to administer justice? Do you really trust the unchecked and unaccountable Biden/Harris regime to return a sense of moral right to the US while it promotes and applauds the wicked and self-destructive LGBTQ+ agenda? Will the corporate media cease its liberal lying bias? Will the compromised DOJ stop protecting the liberal Left while pursuing unjustified claims of wrong on the Right? Do you trust the FBI and CIA to pursue true justice? Do you trust the IMF and FRS?
Let me kindly warn you that each one of the evil forces named above are inspired by the devil and do not have in mind your welfare, nor the welfare of humanity, but have in mind the destruction of much of today’s global population. They geo-engineered climate change that is now devastating the world with wildfires, droughts, and pestilence. They have created divisions, hatred and violence. They are elite globalists intent on destroying every culture and way of life people have known. They think they’re God. They have deceptively seized the reins of control over all people, thinking they know what’s best for humanity, while we the people have nothing to say about it. Hence, the unprecedented and most egregious censorship in the history of the world now flows from all those globalist mouthpieces. I don’t know what your worldview is, but right now, whether you know it or not, we’re seeing Antichrist’s beast-kingdom rising up, and it will indeed crush and subjugate the whole world.
Now, let me assure you, again, in love, that from the Christian’s biblical worldview, the above is not negative, but altogether encouraging and optimistic! Here’s why: though all those entities are working on Satan’s behalf, God is allowing them to bring about their own destruction, because their works indicate the end of this age is near. But rejoice, for the Lord is near! All these events and signs mean we are very close to the return of Jesus Christ; indeed, He will soon descend on the clouds of heaven coming in power and great glory to gather “His elect” (Matt. 24:31); “his Bride” (Rev. 19:7 ESV); “His own special people” (1 Peter 2:9), “Immediately after the tribulation” (Matt. 24:29–31), just as Jesus taught those who actually believe Him.
What’s your biblical worldview? Are your beliefs aligned with the testimony of Jesus? Do you discern that the rebellions of ancient Israel are now being replayed in the organized churches throughout most of professing Christendom because they want to be like the world? God’s Word has been heavily compromised as many pastors rule by their own power. Were they here today you would hear the ancient prophet’s lament, Jer. 5:30–31; Jer. 30:23–24; and Joel 2:1–2. Do you hear God’s Holy Spirit saying “That which has been is what will be, that which is done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun” (Eccl. 1:9)? Can you hear the New Covenant apostle’s and prophet’s warnings, Rom. 1:18–32; Gal. 3:1–3; 1 Tim. 4:1–5 and Rev. 22:18–19, just to name a few? Is your spirit in tune with God’s guiding Holy Spirit? Do you agree with Jesus in that “it is written”, or do you allow traditions of men to lead you astray?
Can you identify and rejoice at the nearing of the end of this age, for we shall see our Savior face to face? I hope and pray that you continue strongly in the faith of our Lord Jesus. Let nothing deter your vision. Let nothing impede your forward progress in your love for and knowledge of the Lord Jesus. Fix your heart and spirit upon the Christ who paid the price of our salvation, the Christ to whom we must all give account for all the things done while in the body whether good or bad, 2 Cor. 5:10. Set our hearts to faithfully running the race, to win the prize of Jesus Christ. In so doing, we will be going against the dictates of this world. We will suffer. We will be hated. We may not be welcome in most organized churches. We may feel very alone, but God, by His Spirit will be our Comfort, Companion and Guide as the testimony of Jesus leads us in all truth.
While some watch for the rebuilding of the third Jewish temple in Jerusalem as the sign of the Tribulation start, I believe the more trustworthy sign is the ministry of the two witnesses of Rev. 11:3 which lasts 1,260 days before they are killed which ends the first 3 1/2 years of Tribulation. Until that time, however, we will be subjected to elite globalist’s crushing dictates, attempting to destroy everyone’s self-sufficiency, our food and water. They want everyone fully dependent on the governments for all sustenance. The elites will continue totalitarian censorship of Christians, conservatives and patriots; they will continue trying to confiscate guns; and will continue to steal our freedoms. They will incite more civil unrest, open borders, sex-trafficking, drug smuggling, racism, divisions, hatred and wars, both international and domestic. They will continue illegal vaccine mandates as they hybridize more viruses and pestilent variants into the world. Their iron grip on the world will ultimately mandate “the mark of the beast”, Rev. 13:16–17, which denies one’s ability to buy and sell unless he has the mark. They don’t care about people. They care only about their power and their control over all humanity. That’s the totalitarian goal of the NWO, the WHO, the WEF, the UN, and the ICJ. That list is by no means exhaustive, because there are too many wicked international and domestic alphabet agencies to even mention here.
WARNING! When “the man of sin…the son of perdition” (2 Thess. 2:3) ascends his authority on the world stage, most will be so exuberant by his apparent ability to heal all that’s wrong with this world, that, literally the global masses will flock to him as their savior. And at that time, we, as born-again Christians, will stand out in stark contrast to most global citizens. We will reject him and his leadership. We will become hated, persecuted and hunted. Someone will apparently try to kill Antichrist, possibly because they recognize him for who he truly is, and he receives a deadly head wound. But God warns us that “his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast” (Rev. 13:3). I believe this event occurs at the middle of the tribulation when the two witnesses are killed but raised to life 3 1/2 days later, at which time God’s special people, the elect “counted worthy” flee “into the wilderness” (Rev. 12:6) to safety for the 1,260 days of great Tribulation—that is, for all those who have been taught in the safety and provision of God for that incredibly difficult time rather than blindly trusting in the pre-trib rapture certain to leave millions in offense. Then God’s wrath will be poured out on the wicked.
I pray your worldview is governed by a true Bible-based, God-fearing faith, because that will enable you to relate the prophetic truths of God’s Word for the end-times with current events that affirm Jesus’ end-time truths. Thus, having set aside the bliss of traditions and unbelief you will be equipped to provide for yourself and loved ones accordingly. Understand that, biblically, your family, and especially those of your own household, are your first obligation due protection and provision, 1 Tim. 5:8. And the old adage is true: “He who fails to plan, plans to fail.” In this, God knows if we have done all we could to provide for and protect our families and He will hold us accountable according to our acts of faith. Go in the power and peace of the Lord Jesus Christ.
