We are in a time of extraordinary opportunity to distinguish ourselves and gain an eternal place in a glorious Heaven. But only if we align ourselves with the True God and join His royal family. Membership in God's family guarantees us wealth, joy, power, wisdom, and eternal life. Who can say no to that? A lot, apparently. It turns out that billions of people can't or won't try to understand the real meaning of life on earth. The one thing that will truly enrich us here and now, in our earthly lives, is knowledge of God. The closer we are to Him the richer we'll be in every way, especially after our death.
Why do we see a rising tide of fear in the world? The Creator is here now to claim his property.
Does a landlord have the right to evict bad tenants? Of course he does. God is our landlord, and He is giving us notice that our lease is up. Many of us have become resentful, discontented, violent, and ungrateful for the gift of life. Ingratitude is fatal to happiness and contentment, and it nurtures perpetual grievance.
Fewer of us, per capita, believe in a good God than ever before. This is a grievous error, and dangerous, because such faith in goodness has always been sure protection against insanity.
We should be clear now in our understanding of the world's mental condition; which is, a great madness is now operating out in the open. We're living in an age of unprecedented lawlessness; not just law breaking, but no restraints at all in many arenas, such as politics and media.
The Coronavirus outbreak is a powerful sign that God is making Himself known to everyone on the planet by showing us how powerless and vulnerable we really are. Before the Coronavirus, major political parties in every nation were busy trying to demolish their own borders and allow all refugees in, without a thought that they might be sick, even dying of diseases; not to mention the terrorists and criminals who took advantage of this suicidal policy.
The Coronavirus has killed open-borders Globalism, which allowed the mass infection to grip the world.
Worst of all, the rules of sanitation and the knowledge we've acquired about germs and viruses were ignored where this recent plague began. Appalling and filthy foods were the source of this Coronavirus, and sooner or later it was fated to happen. Wake up, people.
These consequences of our actions are the Wrath of God, prophesied since the Book of Daniel (6th Century B.C.). It's very good news for many of us. These are the Last Days spoken of by Christ and the Apostle Paul (Link). The righteous and the unrighteous are being forcefully separated, because those who hate or ignore God are an existential threat to His people.
Infanticide - literally murdering children in the womb or minutes after they've been born - is becoming standard medical practice in the western world if a woman decides she doesn't want her child. This procedure is classified as one that "improves women's health", despite evidence to the contrary (Link).
Only a lie of monstrous proportions could motivate people to fall away in this fashion. Some Middle Eastern countries specialize in brainwashing their people into thinking it's God's will that they commit suicide and destroy other's lives, even the innocent's; and they'll be rewarded in Paradise for it. These countries also offer financial incentives to the families of the individuals who destroy themselves.
Many of these nations, like Iran, Sudan, Algiers, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, and others are mere shells of their former selves, operated by organized crime cartels masquerading as religious leaders. They lie constantly and with ease.
Dealing in lies on a daily basis is much like handling nuclear radiation or toxic waste. It contaminates everything around us and destroys from within. At first everything might seem normal. But that's another element of serious lies; the deceit of time, which passes more quickly than we think.
"We have come to know Man as he really is. After all, man is that being who invented the gas chambers of Auschwitz; however, he is also that being who entered those gas chambers upright, with The Lord's Prayer or the Shema Yisrael on his lips." - Viktor Frankel, Man's Search For Meaning
The Spirit of Truth is from God. Lying drives out this Holy Spirit, and insanity follows. Some very pertinent Bible quotes:
"Then I took the cup from the LORD'S hand and made all the nations to whom the LORD sent me drink it... Babylon has been a golden cup in the hand of the LORD, intoxicating all the earth. The nations have drunk of her wine; therefore the nations are going mad."
Zechariah 12:4 "In that day," declares the LORD, "I will strike every horse with bewilderment and his rider with madness. But I will watch over the house of Judah [that's us], while I strike every horse of the peoples with blindness."
Those who want to silence and kill us people of faith are violators of every one of the Ten Commandments:
1 "I am the Lord your God..." [they believe they are gods]
2 "You shall not make of yourself any image..." [they worship money, sex, power, etc.]
3 "You shall not carry the Lord's name in vain..." [that's all they do]
4 "Remember the Sabbath Day..." [they can't]
5 "Honor your father and mother..." [they enjoy spreading tales of parental failures all over the public media]
6 "You shall not murder..." [they murder innocents in the womb, or enable it]
7 "You shall not commit adultery..." [they're encouraging their children to change sex and commit adultery]
8 "You shall not steal...." [they're robbing their children and fellow citizens by fomenting Marxism-Socialism and worse]
9 "You shall not bear false witness..."
10 "You shall not covet your neighbor's house, nor wife..." [Marxism-Socialism is entirely driven by envy and jealousy]
This is why we must understand that ours are the the worst generations that ever populated the globe. By now every city, town, village, or encampment around the world has seen and heard the Word of God through the Bible. They've either accepted it or rejected it; which is very good news for us people of Faith and Truth. In his last days Jesus told his disciples, "This Good News about the kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world so that all nations will hear it. Then shall the end come." Mark 24:14
"Only those who live by faith truly know what's happening in the world" - Bishop Fulton J. Sheen (Link). Bishop Sheen was the greatest prophet of the 20th Century, a Catholic who never hesitated to chasten or criticize the Vatican, the Pope, Josef Stalin, or anyone else whom he thought was undermining the Church. The evils of communism were a frequent topic on Sheen's weekly - and enormously popular - television program. In early March, 1953, Bishop Sheen told his audience that the Soviet Union's top leaders were all facing death, just as the characters in Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar do. A few days later, on March 5, Stalin had a stroke and died (Link).
One more thing. Know this: God can be persuaded to act, or not, according to sincere requests. He wants us to participate in His monumental plan for the renewal of this world, which he created and made perfect.
So pray as if your life depends on it. It does. We aren't all on a non-stop train to our fated destination. Some of us are being saved as we speak, particularly in the two countries dedicated to Judaeo-Christian principles. Here's one:
