ESCHATOLOGY on Our Horizon
When talking about or contemplating aspects of a one world government (political, monetary, and economic system) people often discount its possibility stating, they “would never take, or allow themselves to be ‘marked’ for identity.” However, as has been shown and experienced time and again throughout history, big change often comes in small doses.
Examples of this were explicitly evident in the 1930’s when J. Goebbels, propaganda minister of the "Third Reich" manufactured the ‘Big Lie’. His facile declaration was, ‘if one repeats a lie often enough, the populace will come to believe it as being true.’ This tactic was used effortlessly and daily for practically every policy issue, or edict during the Trump Presidency.
Changing people’s hearts and minds may appear difficult at first, but throughout history the wearing down of beliefs and measures eventually delivers opportunities for people to react and respond in ways they never thought they might agree with initially. The same holds true in our current day and time.
The advent and battle against the Covid-19 pandemic has introduced people to allowing their temperatures taken (forehead or wrist) for entry into venues and commercial businesses. There now exist discussions as to ‘new normal’ methods to determine whether people have been vaccinated or not, for Coronavirus’ and its variants. ‘Solutions’ by those determinations may include documentation such as vaccination passports or identity cards. Small steps, big changes.
Remember, we are talking about changes being implemented in incremental steps to entice or coerce large numbers of people to adhere to an action, requirement, or demand they would not normally willingly accept. And yet, being ‘identified’ as part of an accepting group (i.e., those vaccinated vs. those unvaccinated) by temperature or documentation is now commonplace one year after the initial pandemic outbreak of the coronavirus Covid-19 strain.
Force is usually the last resort used on those who adamantly refuse to go along with any new authoritative edict. The great mass of people will do as they are told. Those who resist will likely receive threats of punishment and/or death. Usually these are enough to move most people to acquiesce.
In the arena of political power that will culminate with the “Antichrist” as head of the one world government, again, small steps will pave the way for ‘new normals.’ The politics of our world have enormous repercussions on everyday life locally, regionally, and nationally. There is an event on the horizon that will be seen as unmistakable, unmissable, and undeniable by the entire world of believers and followers of Jesus Christ familiar with scripture and prophecy.
It can be recognized as the runup to what is known as the ‘Ezekiel War’ (from the book of Ezekiel, chapter 38, verses 36-39). It’s precursor described in the book of Psalms chapter 83 verses 2-8. These scriptural lines detail conflicts between a variety of Israel’s enemies and a rejuvenated Jewish nation. It’s my belief this prophecy started in 1948 with the rebirth of Israel as a nation and continues today. As of this writing (May 2021) Israel and the Islamic faction ‘Hamas’ in the Gaza territory are locked in heavy armed conflict with rocket attacks and military plane retaliations.
One aspect of biblical prophecy we may not know or understand explicitly are time frames involved with converging prophetic actions. Few prophecies detail exact time frames, the seven year tribulation period is an exception. Durations prior to or in between prophetic fulfillment can occur over years, decades, or even hundreds of years. During the Last Days multiple prophetic actions may be occurring simultaneously or overlapping. It is possible Psalm 83 fulfillment continues sporadically to the runup of the Ezekiel War.
Although many may be unaware of the Psalm 83 prophecy, the Ezekiel War will be unmistakable to those paying attention or interested in biblical timetables. Here are important points related to the coming Ezekiel War. An alliance between ten nations led by Russia, Turkey, and Iran will attempt a military incursion into Israel from Syria. This invasion will descend into the Golan Heights Mountain region of occupied Palestinian claimed lands.
The reason given for the invasion may be to aid and liberate the occupied Palestinian people in accordance with United Nations Resolution 2334. Watch for this UN resolution to be a headline flashpoint in the news. It will be a tipoff that timing is reaching a critical stage.
One underlying truth for many in the coalition has been a long-standing stated goal to decimate the Jewish people and nation in a ‘final solution’ of extermination. This attitude combined with a coveted desire for acquisition of the potential wealth of Israel’s raw materials, industrial prowess, agrarian, and natural resources will motivate at least one invading participant.
When every other nation has refused to come to Israel’s aid, God Himself will enter the fray on behalf of His (Jewish) people, causing turmoil resulting in defeat of Israel’s enemies on the field of battle. This one action will reignite both new belief and acknowledgement of God; Father, Son and Spirit and produce a worldwide revival to and for Jesus Christ.
The subsequent treaty ending this “war” will sideline these coalition nations and be particularly harmful to the three lead nations of the group. Israel’s growth and prosperity will be bolstered, setting the political stage for a ‘mediator and arbitrator’ of brokered treaty conditions. The political leader in this treaty’s negotiated outcomes will be the man who at Mid Tribulation will become the Antichrist.
While there exists a myriad of political ramifications operating daily around the world during these times both internally and internationally, the focus of the End Times, and particularly, the ‘Last Days’ revolve around conditions in the middle-east, specifically in and around Israel. Reconciliation of Israel and its Jewish populace back to the Lord God through recognition and acceptance of Jesus as the Messiah (Christ) is the primary purpose of this time in history.
Accordingly, most other nations and their populations are observers to the actions of Israel. All will be watching as possible survivors or casualties of End Times prophetic event consequences. Many asked what role if any, the United States will play in the End Times? As one of the world’s remaining military and economic ‘superpowers’ it’s influence still carries weight globally. However, reality reveals American international leadership has slowly eroded over recent decades.
America’s gnawing internal issues, which continue to divide its population may very well restrict or eliminate its participation in mid-east problems searching for acceptable solutions. It’s my belief America’s ‘fall from grace’ as a Christ emulating nation will result in many of its self-professed ‘christians’ being faith tested in the time fame between a post Ezekiel War era and a mid-tribulation Rapture. (Mt 7:21-23) The internal erosion of American life and values compounded by natural and manmade calamities may reduce U.S. influence to irrelevancy. (Rev 17,18,19)
