Armageddon 101

 

 

InkSpot-main_FullDear editor:

 

While the presidential election is over, the same old and tiresome rhetoric will continue to be heard for weeks and months to come, especially from the radio and television news programs. They will analyze the election and then analyze the analysis of the results — ad nauseam. Even before the election ended there were signs announcing that many did not like the next president — whoever he or she might be. For the first time in our nation’s history, we had the two most unpopular candidates. One revealed that he had “foot-in-mouth disease” and the other a habitual liar who cannot be rusted with classified information and who hates the military with a passion — at least that is what some news organizations had reported.

Many of your readers have studied the prophecies of the Bible and have understood that, in light of what has been foretold about the “latter days,” this election year is just another steppingstone on the path the “ruler of this world” (John 14:30) will travel to exact his terrible affliction upon mankind. The Apostle Paul said that “perilous times will come” (2 Timothy 8:1) and he goes on to tell what will transpire for those who will have turned their backs on God and His Son, who died for the sins of the world. Our nation is guilty of that sin, but there is still hope and it is found in 2 Chronicles 7:14.

The search is already underway to find a solution to the discontent and turmoil rampant the world over, but not from our Creator. The solution will come out of the Middle East, and he will arrive just when men are ready to push the button of annihilation. He will come “as an angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:14), benevolent and unassuming. The nations will welcome him as the world’s problem solver, as he presents a sort of “Pax Romana,” or world peace. The masses will hail him as the savior of the earth (Revelation 13:4, 14-18), unaware that he will be under Satan’s control.

America has elected a new president, but I wonder how many voters elected Jesus Christ to be their Savior (Romans 9:11). Before the terrible times which are to come, God still offers His salvation to those who will trust in His promise. The Apostle Paul said in Romans 10:13, “Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” And 2 Peter 3:10 says we need to be ready for Christ’s return for His church, because He will come when we least expect Him.
