All of the insane wickedness that is happening all over this little planet we call home can be a bit overwhelming at times. Yet, at the same time, thanks to Jesus, it is possible to be at peace and filled with hope (Philippians 4:7).
One thing is absolutely a certainty. We are not getting farther and farther away from all Bible prophecy being fulfilled. No, we are getting closer and closer to all Bible prophecy being fulfilled, and you can see it happening in real-time.
Having spent a great deal of time studying Bible scripture, Bible history, and history in general, as well as recent history and current events, this is what it looks like to me at this point in time. This is what it looks like as of December 2023.
The world stage is set, and what it is set for tells us a lot of other things as well, in regard to what is happening and what is about to happen in this beautiful world we live in.
The world stage is set for the “antichrist” to step out onto the stage and reveal his identity. He will do this by brokering a seven-year peace treaty between the tiny little nation of Israel and the enemies that surround her, as well as her enemies all over the rest of the entire world (Daniel 9:27).
He will be celebrated as a hero by the unbelieving Christ-rejecting world.
The antichrist will usher in the “Time of Jacob’s Trouble,” or “Great Tribulation,” spoken of by many Old-Testament prophets, the Apostle Paul, and Jesus Himself in the Gospels of Matthew, Luke, and Mark and with great detail in the Book of Revelation – the book of prophecy given directly to His disciple, John, by Jesus Himself.
In relation to the prophetic timeline, the only thing that has to happen before the antichrist is revealed is the Rapture of the remnant church.
And when that happens, the restraining power of the Holy Spirit will also be removed (2 Thessalonians 2:3).
The world is set to change radically, and here are some indications why:
Hatred for the Jews and for the nation of Israel is flying off of the charts. An intense, actually unfathomable amount of pressure is being put on Israel and its leaders and its people. This pressure is worldwide and led by the so-called U.N.
Zechariah 12:3 “On that day when all the nations of earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves.”
Israel is being pressured not only to take part in a two-state solution, which makes a mockery of the eternal covenants that Yahweh, the Holy God of Israel, made with Abraham, but pressure also to basically give up their right to even defend themselves from the most hideously evil and barbaric attacks. Genesis 17:7 “I will establish my covenant as an everlasting covenant.”
There are those such as Biden and a few other national leaders who claim to understand Israel’s need to eliminate completely the rancid evil that is embodied by Hamas, yet the actions of Biden betray his words.
Biden and his political agenda-driven ilk pretend to support Israel and, at the same time, put pressure on Israel to ceasefire and press on with a two-state solution. A two-state solution is a non-solution that Hamas never has wanted and never will.
Hamas, like Hezbollah, ISIS, Al Qaeda, Islamic Jihad, the PLO, Iran, and many other Islamic nations, will accept nothing less than total annihilation of the state of Israel as well as all Jews everywhere on Earth. Many world leaders seem utterly unable to get that through their thick heads.
For Israel, it really is a matter of survival.
Then there are those who don’t even pretend to understand and just blame everything on Israel every time.
They (like the Jew-hating leaders of the U.N.) even blame Israel for the cruel, beyond brutal, evil demonic murders and rapes, tortures and beheadings of little babies, kidnappings, and all of the destruction that the sub-barbarians known as Hamas carried out gleefully on October 7, 2023.
We live in a depraved, reprobate world where off-the-charts evil actions carried out by the likes of Hamas are swept under the rug, a world where an enormous number of human beings really do see evil as good and good as evil (Isaiah 5:20)
All over the world, people are screaming ceasefire and free Palestine.
The loudest screamers are the Islamic descendants of Ishmael, many of whom have been brainwashed from early childhood to hate Israel and to hate all Jews.
The Islamist screamers are being aided by the brainwashed leftist liberals of the Western world. Useful idiots that haven’t the slightest clue what they are even screaming about.
They join in the genocidal Islamic chant, “From the river to the sea, all of Palestine will be free,” without knowing what river (the Jordan) or what sea (the Mediterranean) or any of the actual history of Israel itself or of the mostly Arabic people displaced by the wars against Israel.
The many wars since 1948 were ignited by coalitions of armies from Arabic nations. Now, these “refugees” are referred to as Palestinians for political purposes. This, even though Palestine was the name of a geographical territory and not an actual nation.
Many of those most useful of the useful idiots are college students who have had their minds hijacked by Marxist/Globalist professors who have infiltrated “higher” education over the last few decades in America and other Western nations like the U.K., Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and Europe as well.
These young people have been fed a steady diet of rewritten history and trained in a Pavlovian manner to respond self-righteously with anger, indignation, and virtue signaling toward whoever the chosen target is at the time and whenever they are given cues by their puppet masters. Right now, Israel is the target of the venom being spewed.
And then there are those who are simply paid to scream and shout, spout hatred, and carry signs. Paid by men like George Soros, who bears an uncomfortable resemblance to the dark lord in the “Star Wars” movies. Darth Vader’s evil mentor.
The godless, corrupt, morally bankrupt U.N. always sides with anyone and everyone who hates Israel, falsely accuses Israel, wants to carve up Israel, and wants to kill every last Jew on the face of the earth.
Because most of the Israelites themselves have not accepted Jesus as their Messiah just yet, they do not have the benefit of the Holy Spirit to guide them to the truth in all things. Zechariah 12:10 and Romans 9:27-28 speak of the Jews receiving Yeshua (Jesus) as their Messiah at the end of the tribulation.
However, because they do not yet trust in Jesus, they will be susceptible to a false peace treaty presented by the antichrist.
According to Bible prophecy, the leaders of Israel will be fooled, and they will sign on to this false peace accord that the antichrist will then betray at the halfway point of the seven-year Tribulation (Daniel 9:27).
Even now, the whole world screams for peace. They scream for peace as things appear to be getting so much worse. The screaming just keeps getting louder, but the ones doing the screaming – because so many of them see evil as good and good as evil – are screaming at and blaming the victims. This, of course, plays right into the hands of Satan.
Wars and rumors of wars. Threats and warnings of World War III. Threats of nuclear warfare. Threats of warfare generated from orbit using laser weapons of mass destruction and electromagnetic pulse weapons known as EMPs.
Threats from Iran to blow Israel off of the face of the earth.
Statements by Israeli leaders that they would do whatever it takes to ensure their very survival, being surrounded on all sides by hatred and taking seriously the genocidal threats from the Ayatollahs and leaders of Iran.
And Israel has the nukes if they are actually backed into that corner.
And, lest anyone forget, the yet-to-be-fulfilled prophecy referred to as the “Burden of Damascus” (Isaiah 17:1). “Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.”
So many threats and so much fear, and add to that all of the horrendously evil things the Globalists are doing to cause fear on so many other levels as well.
The unbelieving Christ-rejecting world is desperately looking for a hero and will soon embrace the antichrist as that hero.
Speaking of the globalists, they have all of the technology in place to install a world monetary system and implement the mark of the beast to control all buying and selling, as well as control every aspect of the lives of everyone on the planet.
That is, everyone who survives their depopulation agenda. And yes, they are still pushing the COVID-19 clot shots as safe and effective, even in light of the ever-growing mountains of evidence proving the exact opposite is true.
The multi-billionaires’ club of globalist elitists harbor grand ambitions to control everything and everyone on Earth to the minutest detail.
The leaders of Islam and their dedicated followers have equally grand ambitions to control everything and everyone on Earth through violently imposed Shariah Law.
Both of these very different organizations, with their tyrannical mindsets, have this in common:
Total lack of respect for any and all everlasting covenants made between the Creator of the Universe and the nation of Israel.
The world stage is set.
The remnant church of believers will soon be departing this world and going to the place prepared for us by Jesus. We will be meeting up along the way with everyone who died believing in Jesus. From that point, we will forever be with Jesus, and we will be given eternal bodies like His. Bodies that will never get sick, never die, and will not be tempted by sin (1 Thessalonians 4:17).
After the wrath of God is poured out in the seven-year Tribulation to put an end to all of the evil in this world and those that perpetuate that evil, Jesus will come back to Earth and establish 1,000 years of true peace.
The remnant church and the dead in Christ who rise at the Rapture and are given eternal bodies will help Jesus in all manner of ways during this seventh day of God’s “Week of Creation” (Revelation 20:1-6).
We are in the times that are like the times of Noah, right before the flood (Matthew 24:37).
Also, like the times of Lot, right before the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. We are in the time of the “birth pains” described by Jesus in Matthew 24:8. The contractions from those birth pains are drawing very close together, and the crowning could take place any day now.
The world stage is set.
Our Heavenly Father is the Director.
It is He who will call the next scene into action (Matthew 24:36).
Your friend in Jesus,
Jesus is the Way and the Truth and the Life. No one comes to our Heavenly Father except through Him. If you have never called on Jesus to be your Lord and Savior, today would be a perfect day to call out to Him. (Romans 10:9-10) teaches us how.
“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
