Who really holds the leash?

The Word of God warns us of a coming global government. Many would have people believe this is plain conspiracy theory. If an age old prophecy is exactly as they say, why are we seeing things happen as it has been written in the book of Revelation?

We are seeing the devastating effects of the pandemic which the powers that be have planned for 2019. The pandemic has a lot to do with crashing the global economy. What better way to start the virus from a country which happens to already be a surveillance state in its advanced stages of Big government. This model is to be applied on a global scale but not before cash is done away with.

Is it any surprise that the recent turn of events are calling for the need for “Big government”? Of course not. We have been warned ages in advance.

The Beast out of the Sea

13 The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on its horns, and on each head a blasphemous name. The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion. The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority. One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast. People worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?”

The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months. It opened its mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. It was given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. 8 All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world.

Whoever has ears, let them hear.

10 “If anyone is to go into captivity,
    into captivity they will go.
If anyone is to be killed with the sword,
    with the sword they will be killed.”

This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of God’s people.

The Beast out of the Earth

11 Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon. 12 It exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. 13 And it performed great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to the earth in full view of the people. 14 Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth. It ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. 15 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. 16 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, 17 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.

18 This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.

Revelation 13:1-18

The pandemic also has a way of curtailing the physical gathering of the church. It becomes the opportune time for the antichrist’s coming especially when the problems of the world only seem to be getting worse.

  1. Most likely a recession is what will cripple America so that they will be dismantled from within. And allow another country to become supreme run by the Antichrist. It is very clear that America does not play a role in Bible prophecy. As long as Mr. Trump is there, the United States still has light through believers having the freedom to preach the Gospel. The moment a Democrat takes over, they will attack God’s church (all believers in Jesus Christ) to stop their preaching of the good news. Sadly, America will go down but our hope is not in the United States, but in Jesus Christ. Our citizenship is not in this world but in heaven. Look up people, our redemption is near.

    1. Most have theorized the way to cripple America would be through a nuclear explosion but a pandemic evidently has the capacity to cripple economies.

      1. I would agree with that. Whever it is, we must be prepared by seeking the Lord’s face every day.

  2. The church really doesn’t need to be gathered together in one place as in a church building. In the NT they were all gathered together under one roof, not necessarily in a public building.

    1. Wherever believers gather together is where the church is. The church buildings happen to be a designated place to gather since not everyone will be able to accommodate a big body of believers at the pastor’s house. It is sad that this pestilence has affected how we normally do things which only worsens the already dwindling church attendance. There is the lonely repentant person who decides to walk inside a church for the first time and those who do yearn to grow in the faith with likeminded believers. Though proclaiming the good news can be done virtually, it is always beneficial, not detrimental to be with our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ at church.
