Does the terrible destruction, wrought by Hurricane Sandy, by tornado's that leveled large portions of Joplin and Tuscaloosa, by the floods that wreaked havoc in Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, Kentucky and Tennessee give you instruction that God is angry with the United States of America??? How about all the prairie and forest fires and wild winds and terrible heat that have also ravished our country? Add in the terrible flooding that has hit Europe, Australia, Asia, the devastating earthquakes around the globe and you have a picture of an ANGRY GOD. This is the SOVEREIGN God, with Whom nothing is impossible! The God who controls the weather, the One who spoke "and even the raging sea obeyed His voice and became calm." I have just read the books of Isaiah and Jeremiah and am now reading Lamentations, in which Jeremiah lamented, with bushels of tears, the destruction of Jerusalem and the Babylonian armies killing of many Jews and carrying away the rest, for their wickedness and sin. The Holy Temple, Solomon's Temple, so beautiful an edifice was razed as was Jerusalem and the rest of Israel. Were told "Whatsoever things that were written aforetime (O.T.), were written for our learning." Romans 15:14. It's hard for me to hold back the tears, when I see the calamity that has already begun and will only grow worse UNLESS we as a nation REPENT of our many sins. God forgives when we honestly turn AWAY from our sin and do that which is right in His sight.....read your Bible for details.
Because of pride, many think they are invulnerable to destruction. However, they have not taken God into the equation. Many dryland farmers suffered horrendous crop losses this year because of EXTREME heat and hot dry winds. One farmer had 3,000 acres of corn that didn't pollinate. Of course he will plant again next year, but may have to get his seed from the bin. Land prices have gone sky high but after 2 or 3 years of crop losses, they will come down just as fast. Many ethanol plants are operating at 50 percent of their capacity and some have already closed their doors and others will soon follow. Ford Motor Co. has closed down their plant in Belgium, laying off 4,300 workers, the economy is so bad in Europe. China's economy is already suffering and so is Japan's... due in part to the earthquake and tsunami. The Bible says, "Pride goeth before a fall."
Many prayers went up for the election, and of course many of us were disappointed. However many of us were also praying for the return of the Lord Jesus in the clouds of glory and so we acknowledge the SOVEREIGNTY of God. He is all wise and knowing. NOT ONE MAN OR WOMAN exercises authority without God's approval, NOT ONE! Daniel 2:21b" It is He (God) who removes kings and establishes kings; He gives wisdom to the wise men and knowledge to men of understanding." God is getting all the men in place to bring this world into judgment. And these wicked men think they are going to destroy Israel and Christians off the face of the earth. However, God has a big surprise for them, the Rapture. He is going to fulfill the promise He made in John 14:1-6, "In My Fathers house are many mansions, if it were not so I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you, and if I go and prepare a place for you, I WILL COME AGAIN and receive you unto Myself, that where I am, you may be also."
THE GREEN HORSE
Revelation 6:7-8, When the Lamb (Jesus) broke the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, "Come." vs 8 I looked, and behold, an ashen (green) horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades (Hell) was following him. Authority (power) was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth." This occurs DURING the seven year Tribulation, while we are over in Heaven with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Why is the significance of a GREEN horse??? It is Islam's color! Islam will figure prominently in the first half of the Tribulation! Notice the word killing, because that is what Islam is dedicated to doing, in order for Allah to reign supreme over all the earth. Iran, and other Islamic nations want to wipe Israel off the map, with Russia as their leader and Ezekiel 38 and 39 tell us that and although this was prophesied 2500 years ago, we see their hatred for Israel has reached the BOILING POINT. President Barrack Obama is an ARDENT Muslim and does all he can to demonstrate Anti-Israel acts and Pro-Muslim acts and that will bring down God's wrath in an even greater way on the U.S.. See Zechariah 12.
As the leader, the Russian leader will "Devise an evil plan" Ezekiel 38:10. Israel now has Natural Gas wells that are producing far more than she needs and shortly will become even more wealthy as she drills oil wells. The U.S. Geological Survey has identified a huge oil field, with greater oil reserves than Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, Kuwait, the Arab Emirates, etal, combined. Russia will say to them, lets don't mess all this wealth up with atomic bombs, lets just go down with a great army and kill the Jews and take over, plus there's a TRILLION dollars worth of minerals in the DEAD SEA! We don't want to mess that up with Atomic and other bombs, do we? Why doesn't the U.S. and other western nations respond with force to stop them? Two reasons! 1. Millions of Christians will be missing, leaving the U.S. terribly weakened. 2. 38:13, Because the U.S. and the west is greatly weakened, they will ask, "Have you come to capture spoil, to seize plunder, to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to capture GREAT SPOIL?" 3. E.M.P.=ELECTRO, MAGNETIC PULSE. This has the U.S. and other nations really worried. All one of Iran's freighters has to do is launch a missile 200 miles above the U.S. and Europe and explode it and we would be TOTALLY without electricity for six months or more. Our computers, electrical appliances etc. would be wiped out. Back to the stone age. No hospitals or any life sustaining equipment, no cars or other means of transportation, nothing!
MAKE YOUR ESCAPE
All those who are in Christ Jesus will be caught up BEFORE the fireworks begin......I Thes. 5:9 and Rev. 3:10. Romans 10:13 says, "Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved." In simple childlike faith pray, "Lord Jesus, I don't want to be here and experience the terrible things of the Tribulation. Please come into my heart right now and save me from the WRATH TO COME and take me to Heaven to be with You when You come. Amen! Thank You!"
