We Are in the Lion’s Den

“Dilbert” creator Scott Adams recently made an ominous prediction about the 2020 presidential election on Twitter, telling his followers that if Joe Biden is elected to the White House, “there’s a good chance you will be dead within the year.”

“Republicans will be hunted,” he wrote in a follow-up tweet, later adding, “Police will stand down.”

Over the past four years, the left has become totally fixated on the subject of Donald J. Trump. They monitor everything our president says, and they are constantly seeking ways to destroy him.

It is very bizarre to reflect back on all the people who have written books that claim to have a new revelation of sins by Trump. The newly released books are always duds. The promise of the real dirt is in the next one.

If Joe Biden wins on the 3rd of  November, I don’t foresee a wave of goodwill sweeping over our nation. First, it will take several hours to convince the senile Biden that he is actually the newly elected president of the United States. Secondly, this giant apparatus of hate will need some new target.

They may go after Trump, but that will quickly become a pointless cause. Once Trump leaves office, he has no power. They can find some criminal offense in his past, and force him under the threat of many years in jail to renounce his entire four-year presidency. In their mind, he was wrong the whole time. Forcing Trump to admit that they were right would be a hollow victory.

The only way forward for these people is to go after the people who put Trump into office. Several liberal voices have already promised a payback once they regain control of the White House.

It certainly feels like we are already in Daniel’s lion’s den. Many states and cities are controlled by fascist Democrats that openly roar about their hatred for Christians, but strangely, they don’t bite. Like with Daniel, God has sent his angels to shut their mouths.

“My God sent his angel, and he shut the mouths of the lions. They have not hurt me, because I was found innocent in his sight…” (Daniel 6:22).

The Board of Health for the city of Chicago has declared churches to be “public nuisances” because of COVID-19. In one meeting, “summary abatement,” which is legalese for the destruction of the facility without any judicial process or further notice, was proposed as a logical step. If those crazy Christians want to meet and spread disease, rule of law in the state allows them to simply bulldoze the building.

I am very alarmed by the rapid rise in anti-Semitic talk from the left. The same people who complain about America being racist against them have a growing blind spot when it comes to hatred against Jews.

DeSean William Jackson is a wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles football team, and I don’t understand why he still has a job. Jackson recently shared a quote attributed to Adolf Hitler saying that the Jews will “extort America” in their “plan for world domination.”

“Hitler said, ‘Because the white Jews know that the Negroes are the real Children of Israel; and to keep America’s secret, the Jews will blackmail America,'” the quote reads. It comes from a fringe book titled The Hidden Treasure That Lies in Plain Sight, written by Jeremy Shorter, a self-described member of the Black Hebrew Israelites.

Jackson initially defended his post, saying, “Anyone who feels I have hate towards the Jewish community took my post the wrong way.” He then reposted the quote, highlighting the portion in which Jews are accused of seeking “world domination.” Jackson has also praised radical anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, who has compared Jews to “termites” and called Hitler a “great man.”

There is no middle ground in dealing with people on the left. Since they have a monopoly on truth, there is no reason for debate. We are expected to bow down to their pagan god. Here is a refresher of liberals’ crazy beliefs that show their absolute conflict with reality:

Speech equals violence, but silence equals violence as well.

Some lives matter more than other lives, despite our common shared humanity.

The highest form of “patriotism” is not simply “dissent” anymore, it’s overt treason.

Defunding the police is the best path towards a civil society.

The United States was built on a foundation of slavery, and is therefore illegitimate.

Men can be women, and women can be men, at will.

A “national conversation” means everyone agreeing 100% with the Leftist agenda.

Some people think that all is well as long as the Dow Jones stays at high levels. The United States is still the richest, the most powerful, the most advanced country in the world, but it is sitting on a foundation of sand. The true measure of a nation is its dedication to freedom and Biblical values.

My blood just boils when I see this mob of idiots destroying our nation. To prevent myself from suffering from a stroke or a heart attack, I’ve decided to turn everything over to God. All these smug reporters, corrupt politicians, and brainless protestors are going to get their comeuppance from the Lord Almighty Himself. God is a very stern Judge, but He acts with pure righteousness.

“At the command of the king, the men who had falsely accused Daniel were brought and thrown into the den of lions—they and their children and wives. And before they had reached the bottom of the den, the lions overpowered them and crushed all their bones” (Daniel 6:24).

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom…” (Proverbs 9:10).

The Gog-Magog specter

While we sense the powers and principalities at their nefarious work just beneath the surface of what we can see, the prophetic specter of one of human history’s most catastrophic wars emerges. I refer to the Gog-Magog war of Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39, which, of course, we’ve looked at many times in these commentaries.

Stage-setting for the final act of the age is taking place at a blistering pace. The drive to completely erase God from the minds of earth’s inhabitants and replace Heaven’s governance with man-centered authority is full-speed ahead. A borderless world suited for the one-world order longed for by both the human and spiritual echelons in high places is no longer a surreptitious goal. The minions are out in full force, trying, in a major step, to bring America down so as to form a more perfect union, in the eyes of those globalist entities. It will ultimately become a hellish order that God promises to deal with in the most bitter, harshest terms as outlined in Psalm 2.

It’s obvious that the consummation of the end of this Church Age (Age of Grace) is near.

Not even in the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918 has American liberty been so affected. World War I and all other activities in that pandemic, which was tremendously worse in terms of numbers of deaths than COVID-19, didn’t bring about a complete national shutdown. The minions in high places have used this so-called pandemic to forge their construction for Antichrist’s soon-to-come launching platform.

Two nations prophesied to be key in the assault are increasingly in the news. Prophetic overtones cannot be missed when analyzed by those who serve as watchmen on the wall.

Meantime, the Middle East is seething with the rise of evil that is barely restrained from bursting forth in one of earth’s final, major conflicts. Spectral foreshadows presaging the Gog-Magog attack from Israel’s north are darkening the region’s geopolitical horizon by the day. We will look at a couple of nations in current news that, in part, comprise Ezekiel’s Gog-Magog force that will assault God’s chosen people of Israel.

We begin with Turkey, which was within the region in ancient times known as Togarmah. The nation is one of three major countries scheduled to assault Israel in a coalition led by Rosh—or Russia, as most scholars conclude.

It is most interesting that this nation is sounding off on its plans for Jerusalem, and for the Temple Mount in particular.

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan vowed to “liberate al-Aqsa mosque” from Israel after “resurrecting Hagia Sophia” as a mosque on Friday.

The decision to change the status of the ancient Hagia Sophia church, which had been transformed into a mosque in 1453 and then into a museum in 1934, was made controversially last week…

The resurrection of Hagia Sophia heralds the liberation of the al-Aqsa mosque, the Turkish Presidency website says. “The resurrection of Hagia Sophia is the footsteps of the will of Muslims across the world to come… the resurrection of Hagia Sophia is the reignition of the fire of hope of Muslims and all oppressed, wrong, downtrodden and exploited.” (Seth J. Frantzman, “Turkey Vows to ‘liberate Al-Aqsa’ after Turning Hagia Sophia to Mosque,” Jerusalem Post, July 11, 2020)

An even more key nation scheduled to attack Israel in the Gog-Magog assault is front and center in the news. We have covered a number of times the prophecy that the ancient area of Persia called Elam will suffer a catastrophe of some kind. We, along with others who study the prophecy, believe it will be a nuclear problem of some sort. People will, apparently, be forced to flee the area because of the disaster.

That mountainous area in Iran is thought to contain Iran’s nuclear development facilities. Strange things have been going on there recently.

Iran is facing a total intelligence breakdown.

With another explosion on Thursday night, reportedly at an Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps facility, the question is not only how anyone has pulled off up to seven attacks in around two weeks, but how has the Islamic Republic repeatedly failed to stop them…

What the world is witnessing right now is someone – the United States, Israel or Saudi Arabia, possibly with Iranian dissident proxy help – hitting Iranian nuclear and conventional weapons and IRGC facilities practically at will. And they are doing it in a way that has virtually never been witnessed in recent memory…

The questions remaining then, are how long these attacks can continue and whether Iran can cope with them or try to make some sort of secret contact to cut a deal to get them stopped.

If it does not, the message from whoever is making this happen is clear: Continued aggressive actions on nuclear and other fronts will lead to consequences that the ayatollahs had never imagined. (Yonah Jeremy Bob, “What the World Is Witnessing Right Now Is Someone Hitting Iranian Nuclear and Conventional Weapons and IRGC Facilities Practically at Will,” Jerusalem Post, July 11, 2020)

Hatred of Israel by these and other diabolist states of the Middle East are raising the specter of the Gog-Magog war a visible, looming certainty. We believe the Rapture will immediately precede that attack—the next-to-very-last war before Christ’s return at Armageddon.
