The End Of The World
A few weeks ago, a Christian leader prophesied the imminent "end of the world". His prophetic vision entailed a lot of destruction, and the levitation of a small group of true believers to a rapturous and glorious salvation. I had to laugh. Perhaps the world would split into two hemispherical halves, and the sudden loss of gravity would send billions floating into the stratosphere. Who knows?
What is your vision of this apocalyptic change? Is it like the movie, 2012? I feel like there is a bucketload of ignorance being exchanged in the entire discussion. Earlier religious pundits have warned of imminent destructions and the Second Coming. Most have gotten it wrong. Most are conflicted over how it will all go down. Is God so sick and tired of His wayward children that He now aches for the opportunity to fry us all? Was this terrestrial experiment a dismal failure? Is is time to pull the proverbial plug?
I heard a man speak on this topic just a few months back. He's the guy who wrote The Day After The Dollar Crashes. His point was fascinating. He explained that this is NOT about the world "ENDING", rather it is about us making a successful TRANSITION. There is a duel coming soon. The globalist tyrants are convinced that they will finally gain full control over the Promised Land (America) along with the rest of the world. Jesus's servants hold tenuously to His promise that America is His footstool, and that those who persist in serving Him will be welcome to remain here and remain alive. I want to be on Jesus's side because I don't think Bernanke and Sir Evelyn care about my family's welfare.
If you place (or own) any stock in the Dream Mine, you may already understand that the "end" of this world, or the conclusion of this telestial era is more of a metamorphosis than a termination. The real question is - what is God's motivation for this major renovation?
Not much in the Holy Scriptures is not about our duty to keep ourselves pure and prepare for the spectacular events of these last days. It's about discipline, testing and rewards. God's desire to give us broad latitude in recent centuries has allowed many to behave poorly. We are left to our free agency and to our own inclinations to observe His commandments or to flout them. When our cup of iniquity is completely full (like in Noah's day) it is time for the discipline. Abortion, usury, miscegenation and atheism will help trigger the retribution. Some of the tribulations are self-imposed (like poverty as a result of usury); some are karmic (like hurricane Katrina); others are downright acts of God.
The testing is almost automatic - when people suffer adversity, they either coalesce and support each other with extreme heroism and selflessness, or they look for the first electronics store to loot. When we face the loss of health or of a loved one, we either become embittered and curse God, or we become humble and trust His greater wisdom.
The rewards come from the collaboration. If we figure out what God wants for us and for His other children, then we can get in step with His program and achieve it. The rewards are both inherent and God-given. We get satisfaction from aiding others with genuine needs, and God blesses us by protecting, preserving and enriching us.
The coming Transition will appear as the "end of the world" to some. Sadly, with so much worldwide discipline and upheaval, millions (perhaps billions) of lives will be lost. Since none of us plans to die, each of us must work to prepare for the Transition and strive to pass through it successfully. According to prophets such as John Koyle, it will last between four and seven years (not very long). What awaits us all (dead or alive) on the other end of the Transition is a much better condition, and a lot less wickedness.
We all face the ambiguity of wanting our lives to remain stable and normal, while at the same time wishing that the iniquity of this telestial phase will soon be dealt with. Remember, there are two kinds of people.
I wish you a Happy Transition and long to stand alongside you during the protracted duel.
