Last night, after a hot evening at the ball field, I decided to just run out and get us a quick dinner. As I drove down ST RTE 73, every single fast food joint was wrapped around the building. The only one that I could get in was Popeye’s. As I sat in the reasonably long line, I looked around and noticed every single place on the strip, had a ‘HELP WANTED’ graphic. Most even advertised a sign on bonus! A $250 sign on bonus to work at KFC?! Hospitals offer sign on bonuses…not fast food chains!
Over the last nearly 18 months, our government has been overreaching at every turn. Since COVID-19 arrived stateside in March of 2020, we’ve been subjected to illegal mask mandates, crippling lockdowns, and witnessed the closure of small businesses, schools and churches. They’re rolling out stimulus checks and extra unemployment payments like Oprah giving away cars. Now, we’re seeing the aftermath. Gas is $3.15 per gallon, supplies such as lumber have doubled in price, and businesses can’t get enough willing workers to keep their doors open.
It is so obvious that this is all going according to plan. The goal of brainwashing the masses to establish control is complete. Through fear mongering and shameless gaslighting, they convinced the masses to cover their faces in the name of public health, inject an experimental liquid into their veins to rejoin society, and withhold physical affection to save their families. They’ve achieved their goal of dividing the American people. They want us broken down and fully dependent on them. We now live in a split society where both sides are perpetually pitted against each other by the ever present mainstream media.
As mind-blowing as our world is, it’s not at all shocking. I’ve been warned of this my entire life. If you don’t think we’re living in the book of Revelation, you’re sorely mistaken. We’re currently in chapters 2-3, to be precise. God gave messages to the 7 churches, highlighting their transgressions to give them the opportunity to repent and return back to Him. This is the age in which we’re living. Soon the rapture of the church will take place and then the Great Tribulation will ensue.
I believe what is currently happening in society is simply conditioning for what is to come. Let me be clear, we are not yet in the Great Tribulation. That will not be triggered until the church is raptured. Some believe that we are going through it now but the Bible is clear on this. Revelation 3:10 says, “Because you have kept my word about patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell on the earth.” The church isn’t mentioned in Revelation after chapter 3. God wouldn’t save His church from eternal damnation only to pour His wrath on them. Not to mention, the Great Tribulation will be significantly worse than what we’re experiencing today.
During the 7 year tribulation, the anti-Christ will introduce the mark of the beast. Revelation 13:15-17 says, “The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.” Hmm…not being able to buy or sell without the mark. Doesn’t that sound a little like you can’t return to your college campus unless you’re vaccinated?! Don’t misunderstand – the C19 vaccine is NOT the mark of the beast, but don’t you see how they’ll get people to line up for the mark? Just take away every ounce of freedom and privilege until they think they have no choice. Desperation gives way to coercion.
Erica, this is depressing…why are you trying to bum me out?! I’m not trying to be a buzzkill – I’m trying to warn you. Jesus will call up His church at any time. We cannot know when so we must be ready and waiting for Him. Matthew 24:42 says, “Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming.” We must be continually ready. Your walk with the Lord has never been more crucial than today. How else will we withstand the tyranny that will only increase?
We must be prayed up and willing to fight for our God given freedoms until He calls us home. You DO have a choice to resist unlawful tyranny. Educate yourself on how to refuse to comply with illegal demands and pray that God would give you the strength to endure certain persecution. We are not beholden to the evil ways of man. Psalm 22:28 reminds us that ‘kingship belongs to the Lord, and He rules over the nations.’ We are sons and daughters of the one true King, and we should live as such.
Until next time,
