The Coming Storm

The Coming Storm
8/09/2012
 
“We lie down in our shame, and our confusion covereth us: for we have sinned against the LORD our God, we and our fathers, from our youth even unto this day, and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD our God.” Jeremiah 3:25. The nation of Israel was in trouble. They had ignored God and sinned against Him for generations. Can other nations learn from the mistakes Israel made? Nations today are of the same mindset as Israel all those millennia ago. Humanity as a whole has learned nothing. God is still being ignored, even forsaken. Today’s societies have dishonored God, His creation is nothing more than a disgrace, and we hide ourselves in our shame. God’s patience is surely waning and His judgment is upon us.
 
When a nation or a people contrive amongst themselves, against wisdom, to systematically remove the God of all creation from the sphere of common knowledge, consequences will follow. God may well take a step back so that those deceived individuals who have rejected Him are given a glimpse of what it would be like living without Him and His blessings. Of course God never really leaves as desertion is not included in our Father’s attributes. But to make a point, our God might begin a series of actions to help bring back into focus that which has been dulled by many decades of disobeying God and His precepts.
 
Turmoil is very evident of late. It seems that now, more than in any period of our history, we live daily with much disorder and confusion in our midst. But sitting just off the horizon is “The Coming Storm” which will make today’s turmoil’s seem more like child’s play. What am I talking about? Brewing in the under belly of humanity is a massive amount of pent up anger and frustration. There is an implosion coming.
 
Currently, deep seated emotions are running amuck – seemingly uncontrollable. There’s an attitude among many today that leans toward a basic survival instinct which blends well with an animalistic nature. There is a driving force behind this nonhuman concept and it is moving to the surface of every civilization like a volcano ready to spew out its molten lava. We are surrounded by unimaginable, supernatural violence. More and more the violent attacks on members of our society seem to be taking on an animalistic personality. What we are seeing is just the beginning of people “feeding” off one another, both emotionally and literally.
 
Preceding disorder is an invisible undercurrent of wickedness. Yes, lying in the path of all civilization is “The Coming Storm”, and that storm will be of such magnitude hearts will fail mankind. “Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.” Luke 21:26. What things? Things that mankind are not familiar with; incredibly unbelievable and devastating things that will shake mankind to the core. Apprehension, disillusionment, anger, corruption, and despair will become valid responses as the people of earth are thrust into ever increasing disorder; anything but business as usual.
 
That Coming Storm which is currently brewing will be preceded by very terrifying events, events which will disrupt the natural ebb and flow that nations depend on for a balanced society. Those events will include, but are not limited to, massive and frequent earthquakes, ever increasing famines, mind boggling pervasive diseases, uncontrollable wildfires, extreme droughts, and one that will catch many Americans off guard is the coming economic collapse which will shake American greed and her self-indulged materialism to its core. Most people won’t heed warnings of a cataclysmic nature until the cataclysm is upon them. We read in our Bibles that the last days will be wrought with catastrophic events. Since most of earth’s population considers the Bible a fairytale, they give no credence to its warnings of future events. The Bible has never missed regarding the prophecies found within its pages, and it never will.
 
Natural catastrophic events are not the only game in town. Satan and his cohorts are fully aware of the signs that point to the soon approaching last seven year period before Christ’s return. There is a huge amount of malevolent supernatural activity which is creating major havoc around the globe. Many Christians are oblivious to the writing on the wall; they have no grasp of the ominous times which we’re now experiencing. As our time on planet earth dwindles we will be confronted with many more of the enemy’s deceptions which are all planned to create mayhem.
 
We can see by all the horrid news reports being thrust at us with an ever increasing frequency that the demonic realm is in full military posture. Fathers murdering their children, mothers killing their babies and turning cannibalistic. People biting and ripping other people apart with their teeth and then eating the flesh of those they’ve just chewed on. Most of these bazaar occurrences are perpetrated by naked men with super human strength. This weirdness is just the beginning. We will see much worse actions from these demon possessed individuals. Yes, I said demon possessed individuals. Make no mistake, Satan is building an army of human followers bent on the destruction of their fellow man. What we are being told by the media should be dismissed as nonsensical and even blatant deception. Yes drugs play a part in that they open a portal for the demonic to enter our domain, where they can proceed to possess the people who place themselves in that drug induced state. What we witness in these ongoing horrific events can only be described as supernatural demonic forces capitalizing on mankind’s own foolishness.
 
If you don’t believe we are in as much trouble as I believe we are, a trip to your local ER might help convince you. I was in the hospital a few days ago for tests. The young lady doing the testing was also an ER attendant. She told my wife and me a hair-raising story. Apparently this new drug “bath salts” is not hard to come by, and when used it creates a monster inside a monster. Most who take this new drug are already under the influence of mind altering drugs, so they compound the problem. One young woman was brought into the ER after using “bath salts”. While undergoing detoxification she told our attendant that she had a three year old daughter who she left at home (alone) as punishment – the child had messed up the house. The young woman explained to the attendant that she never wanted the child. It was only her boyfriend that wanted a baby. Our attendant told us this kind of thing goes on all the time here in this little rural “Bible belt” community. It boggles the mind to even imagine the demonic goings on in every city and community around the globe. 
 
When people look at evil through humanistic eyes, they can’t see that the mass of wickedness currently affecting all societies is supernatural rather than simply drug or alcohol induced. As recently alluded to in the Aurora Colorado massacre, insanity is said to have played a part in that horrific episode. No, the wickedness that is being observed on every continent is not insanity but demonic. The end, which most of us familiar with the Bible prophecies have been patiently waiting for, is currently in sight. Not a pretty sight but it’s here, and it is burgeoning.
 
For the most part, people today have no spiritual discernment. Therefore as the news stories of horrible wickedness and destruction become more prevalent society will only react in ways that will add to their confusion (perplexity). There will be much more corruption, which will be feeding the wickedness like pouring gas on an already burning fire. Because the ruler of the universe (the One true God) is no longer considered relevant in most societies today, the malevolent supernatural forces being unleashed on these lands have begun to enforce their satanic mandate of invasion. Most of earth’s current population belongs to Satan, and they’re playing right into his hand. Without God there can be no defense against the wiles of the devil. Sadly, the majority of folks today want nothing to do with our God and Savior, Jesus Christ. Why is that?

“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” 2 Corinthians 4:4. The deceptions that have been the prevailing teachings through many different venues for so long are the blinding force which has shrouded the minds of the lost so thoroughly that they won’t see the truth. It’s not that they can’t see it, but that they refuse to see it. They belong to Satan; they follow him and do his will. This is precisely why wickedness is burgeoning at a phenomenal rate. Satan is a real supernatural being bent on the destruction of mankind. His only agenda is to steal, kill, and destroy, and he will use all his human conscripts to accomplish that goal.
 
The refusal to recognize God as Creator and Saviour is paramount on earth right now. Thus, as God sees no other alternative because of the worldwide rejection of Him, major catastrophic events are on the way. In America we’re currently experiencing an economic meltdown, super high unemployment coupled with an ever diminishing living wage, together with a nationwide drought all add to the disruption of normalcy. Corn prices are rising as the crops are decimated, added to that is the fact that cattle ranchers no longer have the wherewithal to feed and water their herds. All this is coupled with ever increasing food prices at our local markets. These upheavals are bringing with them a sense of uselessness from what was once a stable middle class. What we plainly see brewing, my brethren, is The Coming Storm.
 
Tempers are on edge, anger is going unchecked in much of society. People are in a quandary as to what tomorrow will bring as they watch their once thriving societies crumbling before their eyes. There is nothing normal about the demonic. Although the malevolent supernatural legions may not be responsible for our current weather patterns, they certainly know how to capitalize on every crisis. Whenever Satan observes humans turning their backs on God he will use his new human conscripts in his attempts to disrupt the salvation plan of God. Those who have no hope will embrace the wickedness that we now see coming upon this planet. Today we see armies of young lost men and women prowling the streets seeking to dominate and terrorize the unsuspecting and this horrible phenomenon is also burgeoning.
 
Many people believe we are moving into a new era of human history. Not so. This world’s civilizations are firmly planted on a teetering precipice that has been our lot for decades. Every nation on earth is currently on a collision course with an inhuman and immovable malevolent force. Evil will not only persist in these last days, but we will become astonished at how rapidly the digression into full on wickedness occurs. People will begin to worship whatever idol they can conjure up in hopes of curtailing the violence. Sadly, returning to the One true God will not be part of most of the last days inhabitants endeavors.
 
Storms are brewing, storms of wickedness, immorality, major civil unrest, there is an incredible amount of thievery, as well as other corruptions including murder all taking place at a phenomenal pace. This is what comes of nations that turn away from their Creator. All of these consequences are avoidable, but they are inevitable when corruption and sinfulness becomes the norm.
 
“Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me.” Micah 7:7. As Christians we have nothing to fear from Satan or his minions of evil as we look forward to the soon arrival of Jesus Christ. We were once Satan’s property but now we’ve become defectors from his camp, thus Satan is lying in wait for each of us. With our armor firmly in place we are fully protected against any payback the enemy may have up his sleeve. But don’t become cocky in your confidence; we can be adversely affected anytime we let down our guard. Satan and his conscripts will give no quarter to those who mean to stand in his way. Right now, standing in his way are all the children of God. If you are not prepared for the battle of a lifetime perhaps you should grab your Bible and study it (Ephesians 6 in particular) instead of watching baseball or some other distraction that has no eternal value.
 
Leaning on the God of your salvation is the key. “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7. Although Satan is completely out of his league when compared with the Creator of the universe he is a very real and powerful supernatural being, one we humans should never take lightly. God has given us the power to withstand the devil, so withstand.
 
God bless you all,
