The Descent into Chaos :: By Jason Laufenberg

The Descent into Chaos :: By Jason Laufenberg

If you go to the right TV stations and websites (and at the right time), it can be easy to dismiss all of this news about covid and begin to think that we are on our way back to normal. After all, college bowl games have been playing, Jeopardy! is still on TV, and the stock market continues to trend up.

But it doesn’t take too much of an effort to discern the sin and chaos that are regularly washing upon our shores and inundating our society. For football fans, a variety of bowls have already been canceled due to high numbers of athletes testing positive for covid. Teams in the NFL have faced a similar challenge with over 500 players in December alone placed on the covid-19 reserve. Never mind that the league has a 94% vaccination rate or that the CDC just admitted that PCR testing is no longer needed at the end of a quarantine because you can still test positive 12 weeks(!!!) later.

Even Jeopardy! is getting in on the chaos, proudly proclaiming that their new woman’s champion (who is actually a male) is the show’s top female earner ever. And with inflation rising by the month, it’s just a matter of time before the funny money propping up the stock market isn’t worth the paper it’s written on.

All of which is to say that as Christians, we must keep our focus, and our focus is Christ and His word. We are clearly living in the time before the tribulation and Christ’s eventual physical return to this planet. While the Bible is clear about the rapture of the church before the tribulation (1 Thes. 4:15-17, 5:9; 2 Thes. 2:7; Rev. 3:10), we also don’t know how close or how bad it is going to be before Christ calls His bride home. And the tribulation will be hell on earth–literally.

Therefore, seeing what is going on, what should we as Christians be doing as we see the rapture approaching? Whether we are answering that question to others or ourself, we must be careful to avoid cliches and easy believism. Telling people to simply soldier on, bear one’s cross, and live the life God calls you to live is correct, but I think that people today need more. And ignoring the situation of the world today is not the solution either. We need answers.

And the reasons are obvious: the pillars of society are being unearthed and toppled right in front of our eyes, and the new edifices being erected are hateful, callous, discriminatory, and demonic. All around us, the clouds of something terrible are growing, so much so that even nonbelievers sense it. Those that are Christian should discern it. Unfortunately, many do not.

“Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a rebellious house” (Ez. 12:2).

But the Bible gives us the details we need to come to the answers we need to have; we simply must have eyes to see and a heart that is willing to take God at His word. “Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober” (1 Thes. 5:6).

So, what must we “watch and be sober” for in 2022?

First, we must understand that we will not return to the pre-covid normal. As difficult as it is to say and to hear, that era is gone (just as the church era is about to be). In talking about the end times in Matthew 24 and the signs that will precede His coming (deception, wars and rumors of wars, famines, earthquakes, etc.), Jesus said in verse 8, “All these are the beginning of sorrows.” The word for sorrows in the Greek is odin, which means birth pangs. Birth pangs do not happen at the beginning or middle of a pregnancy but at the end. Now that this march to the reign of the antichrist has truly begun, we can expect the process to only quicken and intensify.

Since all the world will come under the control of the antichrist (Rev. 13:1-7), that includes America or whatever nation you call home. This also means that the economy of the world must be knit together. What better way to create a new one-world economy than to crash the old system and build back better through a global reset, as espoused by the World Economic Forum?

Such an economy will be 100% cashless, not just for ease of use amongst nations and peoples, but for ease of control of those who submit and those who may think of not submitting. Attached to this cashless society will probably be some variation of a social credit score, which is already being used in China. This will be how foods such as barley and wheat will be distributed at the start of the tribulation (Rev. 6:3-6) and progress to access to food in general by the mid-point of the tribulation with the mark of the beast (Rev. 13:16-18).

How good of a global citizen are you? That will be the question of those left behind.

For Christians looking to protect themselves and their family from the coming economic storm (count the cost of your responsibilities, Lk. 14:28), consider looking into gold and silver. Gold and silver are God’s money, have been used for thousands of years as money, and protect you from inflation, stagflation, and hyperinflation. Furthermore, since the dollar was taken off of the gold standard in 1971, and our government seems content to simply print endless supplies of money, inflation is almost guaranteed to worsen.

Getting back to a one-world economy, such a program will need to be upheld and monitored. As superhuman as the antichrist will be, and as many as will follow him to their eternal damnation, there simply will not be enough people on this planet that will survive the war and disruption that will overtake the world during the tribulation (Mt. 24:22) to monitor dissent. This is where artificial intelligence (AI) comes in. Do not be deceived or enticed by it today. AI comes straight from the pit of hell. Elon Musk, not one to ever be confused with a modern-day prophet, let alone Christian, made this dark comment when talking about AI.

To take this reality even further, if you can create global soldiers that are indestructible robots and do not have empathy, compassion, or ethics, you can create the perfect purveyor of control. How do you negotiate with a robot whose built-in parameters allow no room for compromise? Consider listening to Jan Markel’s fascinating interview with Pastor Billy Crone for more information on AI from a Christian perspective.

Finally, look for the covid lethal injections to continue in perpetuity. With God’s fingerprint stamped upon the genetic code of our DNA, changing that genetic code changes who we fundamentally are. Think of the Nephilim, 2.0. Only instead of Satan using demonic sexual misconduct with women to change the genetic structure of man (Gen. 6:4; Jude 6), he is using mRNA, something that changes your genetic structure forever.

Understand, too, however, that in the unlikely case that the lethal injection should be abandoned in favor of some new satanic agenda, the “vaccine’s” damage upon society has only just begun. People that have had the shots have irreparably damaged their immune system, as stated by Dr. Mike Yeadon, former vice president of Pfizer. This means that everything from cancer to the common cold (i.e., “variants”) will be deadly because people have no immune system with which to fight these intruders.

If you’ve taken the shot, repent and pray for God’s mercy. If you have resisted two years of pressure from government, society, employers, friends, and/or family, stay strong; our time is short.

As born-again, blood-bought Christians, we must know the truth of today and see through Satan’s devices and deceptions. The people in our daily life are relying on us to hear the truth (even if they don’t know it yet). Pray for open doors, and let the Holy Spirit lead you as we get another year closer to the rapture.

Maranatha!
