This time, spoken of in the Bible, when the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse is unleashed upon the earth, is fast approaching!
|Listen to this description, and tell me it doesn’t sound like today:
The rapidly approaching end of the age is witnessing a tremendous increase in the activity of the powers of darkness.
Unrest among the nations, more intense than at any previous time in earth’s history, is due largely to the stirring up of the ambitions and passions of men, while the spread of an almost wholly secularized education is quietly doing away with the scriptural standards which formerly exerted a restraining influence among the so-called Christian peoples.
Our wealth and social culture have not made us thankful to the Giver of all good, but have centered us upon material things of the world, and have produced a self-sufficiency that quite ignores our dependence upon the Creator of all.
Godlessness, which we have condemned so strongly in the Soviet Union, is almost equally as pronounced, though less blatant, in our land.
These conditions are reacting strongly upon the great ministry of the Church of Christ, the giving of the gospel to the heathen world.
War has closed many doors in foreign lands, and at the same time has cut off financial contributions in not a few countries which formerly took an active interest in missions.
More series still is the attitude of large sections of the Church toward the state of the heathen. No longer are these concerned about the lost souls which wander in darkness; their thought is centered on raising their social status and meeting their intellectual and physical needs.
They seek, in their own jargon, to “build a better world,” but the world they envision is one without a Savior.
Christ, in their view, has degenerated into a Superman, an example which in their own feeble strength they seek to follow.
To meet the situation, the Church of Christ needs a new conception of prayer. The urgent call is for men and women, wholly yielded to the Lord, whose eyes have been enlightened to see the ministry in the heavenlies to which they have been called.
Such believers, whether as intercessors, or as workers at home, or missionaries on the foreign fields, may in union with the great Head of the Body, exercise an authority to which the powers of air must give place wherever challenged.
I find it very interesting that the above preface, by John A. MacMillan, was written back in 1932; and how this description of the church and of the world, as it existed in the thirties, is certainly even more accurate today, in our time!
Things have gotten much worse, in the world, and in particular here in the United States, where the godlessness of our society at large, and the secularization of our society, and even the church, as a whole, has reached critical mass.
This book is actually two books in one. The first covers our position in Christ and the authority of the Believer; and the second part deals with the nature of the enemy and of the demonic, and the authority we have over that demonic world, as Believers, in Christ.
I believe that we are fast approaching a time, very soon when the fabric of our time continuum, our dimension, and that of the middle realm; also called the “Second Heaven,” which is the realm of Satan and of his demons, will be breached; and I believe this could very possibly happen as the result of a scientific accident, and an experiment that has gone very badly wrong.
However, once that door is opened, into this demonic world of Satan, the Bible says that it will unleash upon the earth a very nightmarish experience, which we can read about in the Book of Revelation.
So my question is, could all of this begin as the result of a scientific accident, where an attempt is made to open that portal door, into the next dimension, into the middle realm of the spirit, and that it all goes badly wrong; and once the door is opened, we then begin the last three and half years of the tribulation period, at which point, at its conclusion, only God will be able to put a stop to it, and save the world from mass inhalation, and the lost all life?
As we open the Book of Revelation, and as we begin reading in the ninth chapter, we find it speaks of the worse holocaust this world has ever experienced; where millions of believers will be killed by a very godless society, and of a secularized government of which I believe we can see the beginnings of today, in this Obama administration, that is if it is left to continue along it’s chosen path; and certainly if not, it is a prelude to it.
This government, which is spoken of here, will lead the world into a One World Government, that will ultimately be governed by the Antichrist, where he will insist that the first loyalty of all the people in the earth, be to the state; and this Antichrist figure will demand total allegiance to himself, where by everyone will be required to accept his mark in either their forehead or right hand; or the Bible says that they will not be able to buy and sell, or carry on any sort of commerce.
In fact he will do what our government today, under this Obama administration is attempting to do, and that is he will demand that all people look to the government as their source, and as their great provider and protector, and not to God; and then all of this will begin the last three year and half years, of what the Bible calls the seven years of tribulation.
Once the bottomless pit is open, which is the pit of the abyss, as it is referred to in the Greek, once this portal is breached, we will have opened a door leading to the place of punishment for sinners, which is also called the abyss; which is a place considered by the Orthodox Jews to be a great hollow place, that is found deep within the earth.
It is a place, or I would call it even possibly a dimension, where evil spirits and demons are kept, and some in chains; that the Bible says will be unleashed upon the earth in the Last Days.
We are told that this Abyss is locked, so that whoever or whatever is on the inside cannot escape; until as the Bible says, the angel opens it; and then it says that there is smoke that arises up out of it; smoke like that of a great furnace, that is so heavy and thick that the light of the sun is darkened.
So my question is again, could all of this begin as an experiment that has gone a rye?
I think so… I don’t know, and I can’t say for sure, but this is my guess.
We shall see.
