END OF TIME SIGNS
I perceive some basic principles that can be gleaned from an exploration of how God delivered His people out of the hands of Pharaoh to understand how He will also deliver the elect out of the hands of the Antichrist when He opens the 7 vial and the 7 seal judgments outlined by the Apostle John in the book of Revelation. These judgments or plagues are listed in the 8th chapter: earthquakes, the sea becomes blood, 1/3 of the creatures of the sea die, 1/3 of the rivers and waters are contaminated, darkness with 1/3 of the light turned off of the moon, the sun and the stars, locusts that torment the unsaved only for 5 months, 1/3 of men killed by war.
In the New Idolatry, endtime plagues are compared to certain noticeable similarities to the 10 wonders that came upon Egypt, ie, the contamination of water, weather disturbances, death of sea creatures, darkness, and death, with God’s people being protected. The 20th verse of Revelation 9 hits the nail on the proverbial head for those who practice idolatry in end times:
“And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, silver, brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts. (Rev. 9:20, 21)
When we consider the four horsemen riding on various colored horses, chemical warfare is foreshadowed. (Rev 6:1-8) The word for “pale” in the Greek is “chloros”, an offshoot of our English word “chemical.” The rider of the pale horse—death— will destroy ¼ of the world’s population. The red horse of war, the black horse of famine and the pale horse of death are obvious. However, who is on the white horse? Some believe him to be Christ. However, I believe that he is the Antichrist, mimicking the true Christ who shall also come on a white horse. (Rev 19:11-16) We should not be surprised because the Antichrist is seeking to win the world by counterfeiting Jesus and drawing people to worship him and the devil. In fact, it stands to reason that the Antichrist a professing Christian himself. This is what “the New Idolatry” is all about—-how the spirit of the Antichrist has and will continue to delude professing Christians.
Even so, the bible gives the elect of endtimes an overcoming hope. However, the fate of the religious demons and devils, the fallen angels who masquerade as aliens and UFO’s will have a worst fate than God’s mockery of the Egyptian deities. As Satan was joined in his fall by 1/3 of God’s angels of various ranks, as Nephilim demons have been allowed to roam and even infest human flesh, devils and demons must face the wrath of God very soon for as with their leader, their time is also short.
Accordingly, the wheat and the tare are undistinguishable as the works of God and the devil stand side by side in the world and in the organized church. Yet the Almighty knows His own. With this comforting thought in mind, is there anything that we should do in the natural to prepare for upcoming environmental disasters that cannot be denied in the prophetic words of God? Should we collect and store bottles of water, medicine, can goods and other foods that will not perish easily? I suggest that this is not a bad idea. Consider the children of Israel in the days of the famine in the time of the patriarch Joseph. The Lord prepared Joseph against the impending famine by advising him to “stock up” enough grain to feed the people for seven years. It won’t hurt to “stock up” also.
However, even more than the details or specifics provided Joseph through divine advice, what stands out for me is that Joseph was shown the future in a dream. I personally know what that is like. Recently I have overcome a Satanic challenge through God showing me the future as I slept. Stretching over a period of at least 7 years or more, step by step, God guided me to victory with 3 dreams. When the natural circumstances presented overpowering defeat, on 1/5/2011, I experienced a complete, unchallenged victory.
With this and other experiences like it under my belt, I have strong faith that if I am alive when the environmental judgments are in full force, the Holy Ghost will guide me through them and set up a division so that no judgment intended for unbelievers shall befall me. A thousand shall fall at my side and ten thousand at my right hand, yet I shall be delivered. Where food, water, light and utilities are concerned, I serve a God of miracles. I shall be preserved. If not, then to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord, and with Him, I will simply turn around in my immortal body, and return to earth to rule with Him for the next 1000 years until we all go into eternity with the Lord!!!
So if you are one of His, keep yourself free from the deception and “Fret not.”
