Well, it is a new year and two of the least expected people, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are leading the political headlines. They are about as far apart as you can get. Our once great country is now split as it has not been for a hundred years.
I was reading Matthew 24 the other day and things started to sound familiar.
"And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
Mat 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many."
Wow. After over seven years of the "Anointed One" stopping the oceans from rising, and sending tingles down peoples legs (you do realize an adult diaper will help with that, don't you?) now Hillary has found a bunch of black Pastors to declare "Until He comes again, Secretary Clinton and President-to-be Clinton, we decree and declare from the crown of your head to the soles of your feet that the favor of the Lord will surround you like a shield, in Jesus' name." This was at a rally in support of the pro-abortion candidate Hillary Clinton.
Over Twenty five Million girl babies murdered by abortion and these "pastors" invoke the name of Jesus over Hillary. Like Jesus said "Take heed that no man deceive you."
Jesus continues in Matthew 24:6-13 "And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet."
We have wars, uprisings and fighting all over the world. Can you say ISIS? Libya? Ukraine? Spratly Islands in the South China Sea?
"For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows."
Ebola, Bird Flu, Swine Flu, Zika Virus. Lots of Pestilence not to mention Earth Quakes.
"Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake."
Christian beheadings by Moslems in the middle east, Christians being persecuted for their beliefs here in the USA. Don't believe me? Soon it will be a hate crime to preach against the sin of homosexuality in the USA. Hillary or Bernie will make it so.
"And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come."
Wow, offended people will betray and hate one another. False prophets arise and deceive. Iniquity shall abound. Can you say collage campuses, inner cities, or how about all of the presidential debates? Both Republican and Democrat?
"And then shall the end come."
Are you ready?
Two thousand years ago a jailer asked the question "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?"
"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved..."
I ask again.
