I hope we can stay out of global wars. They are much like gossip mongers who want to spread gossip among the group in order to disrupt a good team. Narcissists love to do that. It creates an arena for them to be entertained. They get to watch all the action and reactions they created in the first place. We need to keep our head above all that.
Jesus knew there was going to be wars and rumors of wars. Rumors probably because everyone is threatening each other and showing their biceps, it’s the armor and hammer on the baking soda model.
There are reasons that nations go to war, many of them are for profitability rather than for stabilization. We are traders with global partners. How each of us comes out will always affect the other. There are no winners in this game of chest.
Then we have to think how educated and brilliant leaders lead us into wars that have no bearing on a nation’s future. Rather we become weighted down with more debt if that is possible. Who really benefits from all of it, not the generation that goes out to war.
Revelation talks about 10 kings that will have power one hour with the beast.
Revelation 17:12-18 (KJV)
12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
There is much speculation about who that great city is.
Many nations have allowed for Trojan Horses to enter in. They consider societies built upon idol worship, socialism, communism, dictatorship, Nazism, opulence is going to make their engines run smooth. They are not because it is all based upon men’s personal ideology that is established without the counsel of the Lord.
These Trojan Horses have entered into the hearts of many including believers. We walk throughout our towns and don’t blink an eye when we see a Trojan horse. We think that a Trojan horse signifies strength when in fact they become enemies to any civilization. They defeat because they never were recognized as a threat.
Revelation says the whore sits on many waters; these are people, multitudes, nations and tongues. Wickedness has spread throughout like Jezebel’s spirit.
The days of Noah are very similar to our days of here and now. I picture a camera speeding up its film where people are going to and fro while knowledge is increasing.
Just like ancient Israel we have assimilated the culture of Babylon and interjected it among nations of the world.
Daniel 12:4 (KJV)
4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
I know as believers we have responsibilities but we need more than ever to learn at the feet of Jesus rather than learning from the feet of a TV set.
We are seeing nations vying for Syria and it is not a pretty sight. North Korea had to get in the act of flexing its super power muscles. Because we do not see what is really going on there could be other nations heavily involved in war without their face in the media.
I truly believe the Lord wants His children to stay awake, to be alert. It is not a time to dance, but a time to pray, to seek His face in order to stay strong. We need to pull our eyes off what the media is speculating and put our eyes on the Lord. God’s Holy Spirit will speak to us clearly regarding these times.
