The fulfillment of Bible prophecy in these days is absolutely astounding! Russia, in a terroristic act of war, in shooting down the Malaysian airliner with an advanced surface to air missile, is asserting their authority over Ukraine. They are asserting a stand against any who would dare contest their desire to take over any country they choose. While our diplomats weave together verbal responses that the news media will spend days endlessly analyzing for microscopic signs of strength, President Obama’s remarks will likely be tepid at best.
The southern border of the United States is flooded with child illegals, at the President’s invitation, and confusion in our federal government, in our States and communities reign.
Israel is attacked relentlessly, yet, our President has little to say as Israel, on their own, seeks to root out evil Hamas and their tunnels in Gaza!
Islam is marching toward conquest in Iraq through ISIS, and ultimately for global conquest through the destruction of Israel and downfall of America.
But, most remarkable of all is the indifference we see with President Obama. Amos spoke to this attitude of indifference of a once mighty and godly nation when he said:
How horrible it will be for those who are at ease in Zion, for those who feel secure on the mountain of Samaria, and for the heads of the leading nations, to whom the nation of Israel comes. (Amos 6:1, HCSB)
America has been led into a distracting celebrity and entertainment mentality in recent years. This was the situation in ancient Rome in the times leading up to its downfall. The focus of our president and his wife have been to keep America, and themselves, entertained and dependent on big godless government.
Our President and his wife further desire Gay rights and “same-sex marriage” to advance. They want abortions to continue. They desire conservatives and Christians to be silenced. They are zealous for the military to be weakened. Mr. Obama’s focus is to put aside every earth shaking, world and national concern. He does this to keep his schedule focused on going to the democratic fundraisers. This is to keep the big bucks coming in to support the perennial reign of the “blame America First,” Democratic Party which has officially rejected God from their “platform.”
Israel is threatened with destruction. Again, Russia’s defiantly shooting down of a civilian airliner, I believe, is for Putin to see what he can get away with. He wants to see what America will do. This is because he understands that President Obama is indifferent to these things.
The latter days, just prior to the rapture of the Church, and immediately after, will be marked by the indifference of key world leaders toward the enemies of Israel. Russia and Iran will plot the destruction of Israel in the battle of Gog and Magog. I believe that these present events are deliberate efforts to calibrate President Obama’s response. If there is not real condemnation and actual effort on the part of the United States to stand with Israel and to establish a strong and practical response to Russia’s aggression, then Putin and Iran will proceed with their plans: Israel’s destruction!
The Scriptures predict the indifferent response by key nations toward Russia in the latter days as they move down upon Israel to take it over:
Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish and all her villagese will say to you, “Have you come to plunder? Have you gathered your hordes to loot, to carry off silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods and to seize much plunder?” ’ (Ezekiel 38:13)
These nations, “merchants of Tarshish and all her villages,” likely being an oblique reference to the powers of the West including America, which will not interfere with Russia’s or Iran’s plans.
Right now, Putin is gaging to see just what he can get away with. He is seeing that he has free reign because President Obama is willfully indifferent!
Unfortunately, and as I will show in future blog entries, Christian leaders in America are helping to promote spiritual indifference in issues concerning sound doctrine, and Bible prophecy. Hundreds of Christian leaders have signed a “covenant with death,” by signing onto a pro-Islamic document called “A Common Word.” (Google, “A Common Word,” and “Response to A Common Word, Yale Divinity School of Religion,” and note the Signatories!)
We need Christians in these latter days who have decided to stand with God and His Word and not to fall in with the spiritual compromisers of our day.
Do not expect an effective response from President Obama You will hear only vague words of empty rhetoric, geared to lull the masses into a false sense of security. It is just such times and seasons as these that the Bible predicts would prevail at the time of the Rapture:
But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. (1 Thessalonians 5:1-4, read also 4:13-18 which indicates the Rapture of the Church will occur at time of Luke-warmness and indifference!)
Keep praying, witnessing for Christ, and watching for His return, while standing for truth and walking in holiness before Lord!
But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil…And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ. (2 Thessalonians 3:3,5)
