I don't look for signs, but if the plain evidence is considered in context it quite seems the world's stage is being set for the final act. Given NASA's late joining the world's enthusiasm about discovering inteligent extraterrestrial life it seems the end time's great dilution may involve a phony ET after all. The perilous tottering of western economies looms large on the horizon promising a big collapse with real panic. War has always been about controling economic production. The next one will be too. Today we hear the dogs of war howling in the distance. World wars change the world. This world is due for such a change.
In 1Tim.4:1-3 the Apostle Paul warned of apotasy and outright evil in the professing Church. We now see evil plainly manifested in once fundamental churches. Ecclesiastical evil is everywhere. Thsee thousands of denominations are an affront to the unity of the Spirit called for by the Apostle in Eph.4:1-3. All one can do is separate from ecclesiastical evil and gather unto our Lord outside the camp (Heb.13:13) apart from the human ruin of the Church.
I truly believe Divine Judgment is already against these United States. Several points support this conclusion. The narcisistic puerile caprice evidenced by this sitting President is only the latest indicator. I think a lot of people who hoped for better will find the worst is yet to come. Expect nothing good. As I read the prophetic scriptures, I find no end time world Superpower other than the Beast's. Personal liberty and freedom are not the Beast's program. The US Constitution must fail and be abandoned. We see forces at work inside this country whose objective is exactly that. Some say there is a powerful Deep State with that very agenda. It may happen suddenly. The threat is serious.
I once thought Islam would be a major power in the Beast's empire. But current events indicate that Islam as a governing force is imploding. I can't help but think something far more sinister than an Islamic Caliphate is coming. Also the Roman Church seems nearly unable to govern itself. How could it govern the world? They too are imploding having less unity than any time before. Unlike my teachers, I don't look to the impotent Vatican institution to be the seat of the Beast's power. The Vatican's power base is gone. European governments no longer need it. I suspect something far more more evil than Islam or the Vatican is just around the corner.
Yes, I can see it - even taste it. Already this nation and world are no longer the ones in which I grew up. I'll be 70 in two years. A lot has happened in the last two. No telling what may come to earth in the next two. But surely our Lord must call His faithful to Himself. That day seems at hand.
Even so, come Lord Jesus.
