Hello beloved friends and family.
The following post may be unsettling to some and comforting to others, but you need to be aware as world events fufill prophecies, and I am called upon to be a watchman. Things are unfolding so quickly, that I can barely keep up; from the U.S. trying to force Israel into a "two state" solution, to the world financial crisis.
These days were written of in Revelation, Daniel, Ezekiel, Isaiah and the "minor prophets".
Goverment control- Haven't you wondered why the government wants to control the banks, the entertainment industry, health care and many other aspects of our lives?
Opinion- These are just the tip of the "iceburg". I beleive this is the beginning of the "New world order", where the one world government will control everything. I beleive that the world economy will continue a downward trend forcing people to become unemployed, homeless and starving. The world organization (or Anti-Christ) will step forward and employ, house and feed you, all you'll have to do is take this little "mark".
Now before you say, "I'll never do that!" think a minute, have you ever gone an entire day without eating? A week? How about watching your children (or grand children) starve?!!!
Social (ethical) decline- "People just don't care anymore!" I hear often. Think of the divorce rate, sexual perversions being validated and even applauded. Pornography, child molestation, rape, murder, lies, self centeredness and the like. We don't even raise a brow when we see these events!
Opinion- Our current social decline has really sped up in the last hundred years with the advent of the entertainment industry. We have been systematically conditioned over the years to off color humor, cussing, to become thick skinned to horrific events as well as conditioning to sexual perversities. (Just look ay "Will & Grace" and Michael Jackson!) Scriptures tell us (2 Timothy 3 in particular) that:
1This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
8Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
Social decline began in the garden when Eve was seduced by Lucifer, or HaSatan. It is written in Revelation 2:17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it. The stone actually referes to a counting stone worn with age. This is in reference to Lucifer's devices, in that he rarely does anything quickly, but rather slips his agenda in a little at a time.
Religious systems- How many different religions exist today? No one knows for sure! It's convenient, you can worship anyone, or anything you like!
Opinion- Everything from worshipping the moon god (allah-Muslims) to beliefs that we were planted here by space men (Scientology), to Wiccan to Zen and worship trees!The western gentile church has made a mockery of the scriptures and ignores it's Jewish foundation, in favor of "replacement theology". (beleiving that G-d divorced Israel, in favor of the church)
The Catholic church is fundementally based in Babylonian pagan worship and is clearly defined in scriptures as "the harlot of Babylon".
I believe we are not far from a state run "one world religion", that will dictate exactly when, who and how we will worship. Those of us who stay the course will be persecuted, hunted, tried and beheaded.
Conclusion- If I am correct, (and I would not be writing this if I had any doubts!) we have some very tough times ahead of us, but Mark 13:13 says; And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end shall be saved.
What a glorious precept! At the end of this age, the second coming of our Messiah, Yashua (Jesus), when Lucifer and his angels will be chained for a thousand years. Peace will reign, and we will be teachers and priests (and farmers).
With this in mind...where do you stand? Where will you stand when things really get rough? Shalom aleichem dear ones! (Peace be with you) Rabbi Lonnie Miller
