It’s happening.

Ok folks, it is finally happening. We have been talking about the financial meltdown for over a year now. Many ridiculed my suggestions at the time but those far-sighted economic commentators who predicted a global shakedown, have been proved correct.

I believe that Gods revelation to us is progressive. That is to say, that as events unfold, we gain a deeper understanding of previously obscure biblical mysteries.

Now is the time for us to make our choices.

Jesus said “He who is not with me is against me and he who does not gather with me, scatters.” Matt 12:30

Just take a look at the consequences of this global economic crisis.

One thing that is for sure is that civil unrest will increase.

A recent leaked report from the home office stated that burgleries and thefts will rise as the recession/depression begins to bite.

It’s common sense, of course these things will happen, switly followed by an increase in security measures. This will probably include I.D cards to start with.

An important issue for God’s people will arise after the restructuring of the world economy. I believe that we will not be included in the system unless we recieve some kind of mark.

The bible says that we will not be able to buy or sell unless we receive the mark. Its straight out of revelation, Chapter 13:15-18.

Remember that the restructuring of our global economy is being made in accordance with pagan and occult philosophies. It is NOT Christian, even though many churches will be deceived into following.

“Come near to God and He will come near to you.” James 4:8

  1. The Ark of Hope is similar to the ark of the covenant except it contains the Earth Charter and several “Temenos” books, (a handmade book filled with pages of visual prayers/affirmations for global healing, peace, and gratitude.)
    The Ark itself is adorned with mystical images on each side.

    The Earth Charter is the blue-print for global peace and prosperity. It is a written representation of the utopian dream which as we know is gnostic and occult to the core.
    The new age of aquarius is gathering pace and the coming restructuring of world government and economy are to be made in accordance with the traditions of the mystery religions.

    Whether Jesus will return in my lifetime or not, does not diminish the need to sound the trumpet.
    Many are blinded by the god of this age and The Lord is calling His annointed to stand up for the truth.
    This means death for some, suffering for many others, but the call is there.
    Do we answer the call? Of course, yes!

    God bless,
    Pete

  2. An alternative title for this reply could be: “Only in America” – if only the same thing wasn’t happening in Australia also.

    Consider this:

    There were mass civilian casualties of 60,000–1,100,000 during the siege of Jerusalem in AD70 – but when Lebanon fired 4.8- inch Katyusha rockets into Israel two years ago, killing 121, end-times preachers thought they were seeing prophecy fulfilled before their very eyes.

    Approximately six million European Jews were killed during the Holocaust – but when President Ahmadinejad of Iran threatened Israel 18 months ago, end-times preachers called it the last days, even though nothing has happened yet.

    An estimated 75 million people (30-60% of Europe’s population) died of the plague in the 1340s – but when the bird flu infected fewer than 200 laboratory-tested people four years ago, it was portrayed as the beginning of the end of the world.

    2-4 million died in the China floods of 1931 – but when eleven people died in flooding in America’s mid-west this year, an end-times preacher said ours surely must be the final generation.

    An estimated 200,000-400,000 have died and 2,500,000 misplaced in the current Darfur conflict – but when US citizens were temporarily evacuated then returned to their city in Texas and 50 people died last month, it’s got to be the apocalypse.

    There have been at least six world empires since New Testament days which each controlled at least 25% of the world’s population – but when someone mentioned some North American Union conspiracy theory, all of a sudden it’s got to be the end of human civilization, even though the USA comprises only 6.4% of the world’s population.

    One American end-times preacher even warned that the Great Tribulation must be near, due to outrage in California over petrol prices peaking at 51c/litre – nevermind that the rest of the world pays double or triple that, or don’t even own a car to put fuel in in the first place.

    China’s Church has an estimated 100million members, South Korea has the biggest churches in history, revival and church-growth in Africa and Asia is reaching unprecedented levels – but if someone starts teaching wrong doctrine in some American denomination, all of a sudden it’s the worldwide “great falling away” that Paul warned about.

    Untold millions of people have died in natural disasters throughout the centuries – but if it happens in OUR GENERATION, or in AMERICA, then it must be WORSE THAN EVER and it MUST BE the end of the world.

    That’s what I mean by ethnocentric eschatology. It’s funny isn’t it! It’s like American and Canadian baseball – they call it the World Series. Or a California-based bodybuilding competition – they call it Mr Universe.

    Many nations owe a huge debt of gratitude to America, for other legitimate reasons. But why does American culture seem to spawn so many end-times-now theories? Two reasons:

    Other cultures never had the freedoms Americans enjoy, so to other people, when something bad happens, they have a “same-old, same-old, we’ve-seen-it-all-before” attitude; but the American psyche gets a real jolt if just one of their rights appears threatened even in the slightest.

    The other reason is that end-times books can make good money in America, therefore authors can’t wait to publish the next contemporary, sensational theory. Such books are highly marketable to Americans so long as the American market perceives their rights could be effected by the issue in some way.

    And we here in Australia pretty-much follow suit.

    Other examples of historical events which were mistakenly thought to have eschatological significance include: the Middle Ages theory about the Pope being the ‘Antichrist’; the First World War Ottoman ‘beast’ idea; the Second World War Nazi ‘man of sin’; the Cold War ‘northern army’; the oil crisis of the 70s; the 80s Jupiter Effect and planetary allignment, which fizzled; the paranoia over the introduction of the plastic-card and barcoding in the 70s and 80s; the modern ‘Babylon’ idea regarding the first Gulf War in the 90s; Y2K; the current War on Terror; and recent earthquakes, tsunami, hurricanes, and the current US sub-prime lenders crisis.

    Each of these events seemed important in their culture and within their generation, but they were irrelevant to people outside their culture, and proved to be irrelevant as far as being signs of the last generation before Jesus returns.

    So perhaps a more mistake-proof approach to understanding Biblical prophecy might be to let the text speak for itself. Endeavor to find out, first of all, what the text would have meant to its original readers. Avoid using “Newspaper Exegesis” to guess what Jesus may have had in mind when He sat on the Mount of Olives overlooking the City of Jerusalem nearly 2,000 years ago and discussed the Temple’s future. Instead of looking at the Bible through the grid of current affairs, try letting Scripture interpret Scripture.

    You’ll find, when you let the text speak for itself, putting-aside your 21st-century ethnocentric lenses, that you’ll come to the exact conclusions Jesus came to anyway, minus all the flaky stuff that always tends to fizzle: He is coming soon, but no-one knows when, so we must be ready at every hour.

    That’s the enduring message of the Gospel.
