Christians are encouraged to look for to “the blessed hope – the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ” (Titus 2:13). We are encouraged to look forward to tomorrow, living with the awareness Jesus could come today.
One of the ways we look forward to tomorrow is to consider the hundreds of unfulfilled prophecies in the Bible. We can expect the world to be moving in the direction predicted for the End Times.
We reserve a few minutes Sunday morning to suggest news, or trends, that seem to be predicted by our futurist reading of the Bible.
To avoid sensationalism, we are careful to use recognized, reliable sources for news.
We’re not saying the things we report are the fulfillment of prophecy. We’re saying that they are the things you’d expect to be happening in the build- up to the future seven year Great Tribulation.
Governments are going green in a big way. World leaders have prioritized climate change over just about any other function of government. It is proving disastrous.
Case in point, a recent news story was titled, South Africa slashed emissions and beat their climate goals and the country is about to cease to exist as a result.
South Africa, against all odds, managed to reach their Paris Agreement climate goals.
The nation has already slashed enough emissions to have reduced output between 350 and 420 megatons of carbon dioxide by 2030, meeting their goal of between 398 and 614 megatons.
How did South Africa do what so few have been able to manage? By initiating a nationwide energy crisis with rolling blackouts due to a multitude of catastrophic technical failures at electrical stations.
These power failures have brought the once-modern nation to its proverbial knees.
Power rationing is being conducted to keep the national grid from collapsing, leaving people without power for 10 hours or more per day.
Most of the people of South Africa have lost access to refrigeration, education, communication services, medical services, and work. Over two-thirds of businesses have laid off employees or closed because of the power outages.
They are facing mass starvation, their businesses are failing, and they have little access to healthcare. But their falling emissions are saving the planet.
The green people keep bringing up the Earth’s population. They claim our planet cannot sustain 8b people. While no one wants to say it outright, the solution to the suggested over-population is euthanasia and assisted death:
- Euthanasia is the act of intentionally ending a life to relieve suffering. It is further described as voluntary, involuntary, active, or passive.
- Intentionally helping another person to kill themselves is known as assisted death, or physician assisted death.
Canada is emerging as the world’s leader in murdering people. They call it, MAiD – Medical Assistance in Dying. Proponents originally said that assisted suicide would only be used in end-of-life circumstances to relieve the pain of the elderly. Then it expanded past the elderly to any adult who is dying painfully. Then it became ANYONE experiencing pain, including mental anguish, and that includes children.
Over 30,000 people have been assisted in dying since MAiD was first legalized in 2016.
The most recent news is in an article titled, One-third of Canadians are fine with “prescribing” state-sponsored “suicide” for homeless people.
The poll also revealed that 73% of Canadians are big fans of the country’s current MAiD system, which allows people to commit suicide legally and medically for almost any excuse whatsoever.
For example, the current system recommends veterans commit suicide because they can’t get the government to take care of them by installing wheelchair ramps.
The poll disturbingly found that just over a quarter of Canadians think that poverty is a sufficient reason to apply for MAiD. Even more Canadians believe that homeless people should be automatically qualified for medically assisted suicide.
A full 20% also said you don’t need ANY reason to commit suicide by doctor.
Commenting on the statistics, the author wrote, “All it takes is a little crack in the door. If a third of Canadians think the homeless should qualify now, how long before it’s mandatory?”
This isn’t really about the climate. It is about control. The governments of the world are hurtling toward surrendering their individual sovereignty for the so-called “greater good” of the human race.
The Bible describes the future government of the Earth to be global. Global government, global economy, with power residing in line group, then one man – the antichrist.
We are witnessing the stage-setting for the seven year Time of Jacob’s Trouble, the Great Tribulation, that is described in the last book of the Bible
We will not be on Earth during that terrible Time of Jacob’s Trouble. The resurrection and rapture of the church are imminent. It could happen any moment; nothing needs to happen before it.
Jesus will come, in the clouds, and raise the dead believers of the Church Age. He will transform the bodies of living believers to glorified, resurrection bodies.
We will join Him in Heaven while the earth endures one final seven-year campaign of severe evangelism.
Are you ready for the rapture? If not, Get ready; Stay ready; Keep looking up.
Ready or not, Jesus is coming!
