As the human race continues to rush towards “Armageddon”, few can argue that we are now living in a time where utter “madness” and great “evil” are amongst us.
It is indeed the most unstable time in human history, and there are many amongst us whom have become infected with the chronic illness of “self-importance”, “greed”, “the love for money” and “the lust for power”.
Things in the world are now starting to unravel fast, and the “Doomsday Clock” indicative of the outbreak of a Thermal Nuclear World War 3 is now standing precariously close to midnight. In this regard the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, had himself in recent media statements warned that the West / NATO has deliberately pushed Russia into a corner and that such a nuclear war now seems imminent and unavoidable. Strange that one won’t find the main-stream media reporting on such an important statement / threat?
We live in a very broken world where entire countries are in ruins due to war – such what is the case with the Ukraine, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, South Sudan, Somalia and Palestine. All of this has caused a “Migration Crisis” into Europe – something that will change the face and local culture of Europe forever; but of which will also lead to major confrontation, civil unrest and death, as the local population groups start to rebel against the migrants and their own governments.
It is now the “New Normal” for terrorist attacks to be launched against “civilians and other soft targets” on an almost daily basis – the simple truth being that there is now simply no place left in the world anymore that can be regarded as safe from terrorism.
There have been many hundreds of terrorist attacks since the beginning of the year, 2016; most of which did not even reach the prime-hour news bulletins. Just in July of 2016 alone, there were 179 reported terrorist incidents throughout the world which included: The Normandy Church Attack in France where a priest was be-headed; the bombing in Ansbach, Germany; the Train Attack in Wurzburg, Germany; the truck attack in Nice, France; and several suicide, and/or car bombs in places like Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kenia, the DRC, Baghdad, Bangladesh, Venezuela, Afghanistan, Somalia, Thailand, Nigeria, Cambodia and even in places as far-off as Mozambique.
And still fresh in our memories are the execution-style-murders of the twelve employees of the Charlie Hebdo satirical news-magazine in France during 2015; the horrific massacre of 130 civilians in a co-ordinated terrorist attack in Paris later that year; the bombing of Brussels’ and Turkeys’ airports; the terrorist attack that killed 14 people at San Bernardino, California; and the 49 people that were gunned down at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida as recently as June 2016.
Further to that and on 26 July 2016, a lone mad-man in Japan breaks into a care-centre for mentally disabled people, and proceed to stab 44 to death.
Also very disturbing right now is the targeting and killing of police officers all over the US. In this regard, 3 police officers were killed and 3 were wounded by a sniper in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and many other attacks on / shootings at police officers have been reported all over the United States since.
And if things aren’t bad enough, certain religious leaders have in recent days openly been calling on their followers to kidnap Westerners.
So too can everyone now see the dramatic increase in hatred and intolerance between peoples of different races, cultures, ethnic and religious backgrounds. Thus many people are now being persecuted, murdered and / or slaughtered exactly because of such trivial differences and flawed ideologies.
But those things mentioned above are unfortunately not the only scary things that are happening all over the world right now – because Nature too has apparently started to revolt against the abuse that us human beings had carelessly inflicted upon her over the decades:
- Hundreds of thousands of dead fish are washing up on our shores, while magnificent mammals such as the whales and dolphins are increasingly beaching and dying by the hundreds;
- Entire flocks of birds are falling from the sky – dead;
- Live stock and other “land-dwelling-animals” are also increasingly dying in large numbers for reasons yet to be determined;
- Strange weather patterns and record temperatures are being observed all over the world;
- Severe cycles of drought persist in many countries, while others are flooded / washed away during extreme storms;
- Run-away-fires in many countries continue to wreak havoc and are destroying millions of hectares of vegetation and forest;
- So too have there been over two thousand recorded earthquakes in 2016, of which a number had reached magnitudes of between 7.0 and 7.9 on the Richter scale;
- Over 40 volcanoes have erupted world-wide in recent weeks alone; and many experts propose that the “Yellow Stone Super Volcano” in the United States is ready to erupt at any moment;
- And then there are still strange disease, such as the Zika-virus and Ebola, from which we have to fear a catastrophic global outbreak.
Land suitable for agriculture is becoming less and less; and humans all over the world are now increasingly faced with shortages of food, drinking water, jobs and safe places in which to live.
Many experts also warn of an imminent “meltdown of the entire global financial systems” of which there will be no recovery. This will happen when the current “bubble” that had been created by a debt-based-global-economy finally bursts – and of which will immediately render all money useless and cause the entire world to slip into the greatest DEPRESSION in human history.
The world is indeed on the “tipping point” of Absolute Disaster; and the implementation / roll out of a “Global Martial Law” in some form or the other is a rumour that does not seem so far-fetched anymore.
It is a time of “Great Deception” and many a global leader will have you believe that “all is well in the world” and that they “have everything figured out and under control” – whereas that could not be any further from the Truth. Just pause for a moment, take a deep breath………..look around you………….and then judge for yourself.
It is no wonder that someone named “George Carlin” once stated: “I have a few general rules; the first of which is that I don’t believe ANYTHING……….NOT ANYTHING that the government tells me.”
If we were to be brutally honest with ourselves, we would readily admit that we have never witnessed a world as “chaotic” and “dangerous” as the one that we are currently living in. It is a world where absurdities such as “Political Correctness” and “Media Propaganda” are being used to promote stupidity, while at the same time stifling honesty, logical reasoning and workable solutions.
With the global population number now fast approaching 7 billion, the planet earth is simply no longer able to sustain the human race anymore. Something has got to give. The global food- and water security is under threat, and other natural resources that our planet earth so willingly provided us with in the past are now also drying up fast.
It is therefore a very logical result that entire countries, nationalities and citizenry, together with different religious, cultural and ethnic groups are now starting to “turn on each other” – as the race is now truly on for global dominance and to secure the remainder of the earth’s natural resources for the “chosen few”.
But despite the looming disaster, many people are still “sleepwalking” through life, oblivious of the reality which is busy unfolding around them
The simple and very inconvenient truth is that Humans will simply have to Change Their Ways and “stop breeding” at the rate which they currently are; and whereas there is an absolute and “moral obligation” on the Rich (the Have’s) to help the Poor (the Have’s not), so too is their “moral obligation” on the poor to help alleviate the “crisis” that the global system currently finds itself in – and so too is it an ABSOLUTE MUST for global governance to start acting responsibly, to deal in honesty with its citizens and to eradicate the cancer of CORRUPTION.
But therein lies the problem: there are hidden agendas which are currently being played out on the geopolitical chessboard of the world, and experts propose that there are “those people behind the curtain” who had several years ago already laid out the plans by which a “Global Reset” is to be initiated now, and “……………..from which ashes will rise a New World Order”.
But of what purpose will such a New World Order be and what realistic chance does it have to succeed if the planning and structuring thereof were done by exactly the same people who had been responsible for the past dramatic failures in human history?
Great despair, sorrow, suffering and bloodshed are immediately ahead of us, and the world now once again finds itself at a crossroad.
But that what is happening around us in the world is in fact nothing other than “spiritual warfare” – chaos and fear is the currency being used to suppress, indoctrinate and brain-wash the masses.
All of the above and that what is about to happen, is simply because mankind has become a “godless people” and of whom had turned its back on God. Many people have chosen evil over good, and have decided that it is far easier to worship “evil and sin” than what it is to walk the pathway of honesty, obedience, love and righteousness as laid out by God.
We find that both the citizenry and governments of the world are wrestling with and arguing about matters which defies any logic – and of which are essentially problems that are relatively easy to resolve. Someone had apparently decided that we human beings can basically do as we like and be whatever we want…………… without any consequences…………..and to call that Human Rights.
As illustration of this case in point: Canada has for instance, legalized certain sexual acts between humans and animals; whilst in Australia, a woman is boasting about being in love with and having sex with a tree; while in another part of the world, a man has gone to Court in order to obtain the right to legally marry his computer?
But amongst all this chaos and confusion, what could possibly have been easier and more simple than to just follow and obey the Ten Commandments as given to us by God – and of which is reflected in Exodus 20 of the Bible Scriptures:
- I am the Lord your God – you shall have no other gods before Me.
- You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate Me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love Me and keep My commandments.
- You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.
- Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God.
- Honour your father and your mother, so that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.
- You shall not murder.
- You shall not commit adultery.
- You shall not steal.
- You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour.
- You shall not covet your neighbour’s house; you shall not covet your neighbour’s wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbour’s.
And whom in history, but Jesus Christ, has willingly sacrificed Himself to die on the cross so that the sins of mankind may be forgiven? Once asked what the most important Commandment of all is, Jesus simply answered: “Love your neighbour as you do yourself, and love God above everything else.”
Whether therefore, someone is religious or not; or a Believer or not; or simply somebody who sees the Bible as a “history book” – the simple fact is that nobody can fault the overall message that is intended by and contained in the Gospel of Jesus Christ – which is one of:
- Love as opposed to Hatred;
- Peace as opposed to Violence / War;
- Forgiveness as opposed to Vengeance;
- Understanding as opposed to Judgment;
- Humility as opposed to Arrogance;
- Sharing as opposed to Greed;
- Giving as opposed to Selfishness;
- Honesty as opposed to Wickedness;
- God Fearing as opposed to the ways of Sin
If only we human beings had followed His example and adhered to the Laws of God – everything would have been so simple, and the world would surely not have been in the state of Chaos and Anarchy that we now find ourselves in.
The Bible has, through numerous Prophecies contained therein, given us ample warning of those things that are to come; and Jesus himself had said:
“For it is written, as I live, sayeth the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God.” (Romans 14:11)
All of that what is written here above paints a pretty grim, bleak and dark picture for the immediate future, but depressing as it is, it does not propose that the World will necessarily end tomorrow. In this regard it should be emphasized that God is sovereign and that only He knows and that only He will decide when that Time will be.
Perhaps the lyrics of an old “Simon & Garfunkel” song summarizes best that emotions, which many of us are feeling at the moment, and when witnessing the ANARCHY that is today happening all around us in the World:
“……………still thinking back on the road we’re travelling on, I can’t help but wonder: what’s gone wrong?”
