Infamy; a day that is resurrected as the Tribulation begins!
“God created man in his image; in the divine image he created him; male and female he created them. God blessed them saying; Be fertile and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it. (Gn. 1: 27 - 28).
Just when we thought that the most oppressive action the parents of pre-abortion babies undertook to destroy life in the womb, another enemy of life has entered our modern society. On this morning’s news was the announcement of a decision to offer hysterectomies to young girls. Youth that are carrying seeds to be fertile and multiply filling the earth as God said.
Now there is another notch in the belt of evil that is prepared to say to God; “how about this, fight us on abortions and we will create a way to eliminate the possibility of child-bearing tiny girls.” A direct confrontation to our God to ensure there will be no more families left to subdue the earth. Just a planet revolving in this galaxy with little or no humans to praise God.
“Immediately after the tribulation……..” The time predicted and it is here! We are seeing before our eyes the beginning of the end of life that was so prominent yesterday, and now the swords of destruction are being planted all around us. There will be people on the earth but as Revelation points out it is the opening of a war between the powers and principalities to which we shall become observers and run to the mountains. “When you see the desolating abomination spoken of through Daniel the prophet standing in the holy place; then those in Judea must flee to the mountains.” (Mt. 24: 15).
Fear of destruction is imminent but the direct assault against God by evil personages is beginning to become the final path putting many directly to hell. This is not a gloom and doom article but another reminder that the powers to be are just an evil entity that wants to strangle those of us who will fight to retain whatever peace is left.
The obvious detriment is not for you or me but to Almighty God. For a lot of Christians this may not mean anything since God can take care of himself, as some may say sheepishly. But the attacks are directly aimed at bringing the original creation of humanity to a point of pride from demonic existence. When Jesus was being questioned by Pilot and Herod his response to them was “I could call on my Father and legions of angels would come to my help. His refusal to call upon a war they could not win was so you and I could be redeemed. Now, he is calling on us to not fight with bullets or tanks, but pray that we will be able to withstand the coming onslaught that Revelation so eloquently describes.
“Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding in his hand the key to the abyss and a heavy chain. He seized the dragon, the ancient serpent, which is the Devil or Satan, and tied it up for a thousand years and threw it into the abyss , which he locked over it and sealed, so that it could no longer lead the nations astray until the thousand years are completed. After this, it is to be released for a short time.” (Rev. 20: 1 - 3). The numbers used are symbolic only, and signify Christ's resurrection-victory over death and the forces of evil and the end of the world.
This will be the consumption of all that we may witness of God winning the world back to himself. These perpetrators who advocate abortion, euthanasia, and historectomies of young girls who cannot make rhat decision themselves will come to an end. First will come the tribulation then the end will come. We must not lose heart but remain faithful that God is going to clear the threshing floor and take us home.
