Hey my friend! I hope you’re having a great Sunday!
With all the craziness in the world right now, I think many people have been anxiously wondering “what is going to happen next???”
For weeks I’ve felt like I was supposed to shed some biblical light on this question in one of my Sunday newsletters, and I believe God is saying that now is the time to do that.
It’s not directly a health related topic, but since knowing what will happen in the future brings greater peace of mind, and greater peace of mind improves physical and mental health, I guess this fits in the “indirect” category.
In this day and age, we cannot understand what is happening in the world if we don’t know the Word of God.
First off, if we don’t understand the basic reality that there is a spirit realm and that demonic spirits are attempting to influence humanity for evil, than we will never understand why there is sin, suffering, sickness, disasters or anything else we don’t like to see. (John 10, Ephesians 6, 1 Peter 5)
Second, we also have to realize that as any Loving Father would, God has given us everything we need to be able to understand how to navigate through these crazy times. That is what I want to take time out of my miracle story series to communicate to you about today.
Throughout history God has chosen various people to receive messages through dreams, visions, or other forms of Divine Inspiration. Some of these recorded messages came in the form of commandments and laws, some came in the form of songs and poetry, some came in the form of historical accounts of events, and some came in the form of prophesies.
Prophesies are a very special type of Divine Inspiration because they give insight into what will happen days, weeks, months, or in the case of todays examples- thousands of years in advance.
The most important prophesy about the future is that one day Jesus Christ will return to earth in what is often referred to as “The Second Coming.”
What is really cool to know is that there are close to 150 chapters in the Bible about the events related to His return. These chapters include details of what will happen before, during, and after. To name just a few:
Jesus will return to earth and rule the earth for a period of 1000 years (Revelation 19, 20).
When He comes He will judge all evil that is happening on the earth and He will establish a righteous, global government. (Revelation 19)
All the earth will see Him come on His white horse in the clouds, and every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that He is Lord (Philippians 2, Isaiah 45).
Those that have followed Him will have offices in His government and will live for this entire time in a healthy body (Revelation 20). This will be a glorious time for all those who have placed their lives in His hands by making Him Lord and Savior!
After this 1000 year reign, all of His followers will live with Him in heaven forever, where things will get even better. In heaven there will be no sadness, sickness, death, pain or sin there for all eternity (Revelation 21). I can hardly wait!!!
However, what will precede all of this is pretty heavy.
It’s also pretty frightening if you think about going through it without God by your side. It says that there will be the formation of a different type of global government- one that has evil intentions and demonic inspirations.
This government will have power over every human being on earth (Daniel 7, Revelation 13) and the suffering it inflicts on the earth will be worse than at any time in history (Matthew 24). It will be like global communism on steroids.
I know that sounds intense (and it is!!) but know this- God saw into the future and told the writers of the Bible to pen these prophecies, so that we would be prepared for it when it happens.
Now you might be wondering- “how can we know that we are getting close to His return?” Good question! The Bible gives us one MAJOR prophetic sign, that is meant to be the “beginning of the countdown timer”, if you will. That event has already occurred….
The restoration of the nation of Israel.
The nation of Israel is the nation that God picked to be the nation that would know Him first and later make Him known throughout the world. (Jesus was a Jew by the way). The Lord prophesied about Israel and what would happen to it in the times leading up to the return of Christ.
It says that there would be a period where Israel would appear “dead”. In fact, in a prophetic vision, the prophet Ezekiel (around 600 BC), saw Israel as a “valley of dry bones.” (Ezekiel 37)
What Ezekiel didn’t know, is that over 600 years later, in 70 AD, the Romans would banish, kill or enslave all the remaining Jews in Israel and render their nation “dead”, or non-existent.
Ezekiel went on to prophesy what happened next- that the Jews would end up in places all over the earth. As you may know, the Jews did end up going all throughout Europe and other parts of the world after this.
Another prophecy fulfilled.
Then Ezekiel goes on to prophesy that in the days before Christs’ return, Israel would be resurrected as a nation again and would no longer be divided into two sections, but would be one unified country.
In his vision, he saw this as the valley of dry bones turning into an army of living soldiers.
This prophecy was partially fulfilled in 1948 when the nation of Israel was reborn in a day (just as Isaiah 66 prophesied). Then it was further fulfilled in 1967 when the Jews reclaimed Jerusalem.
These events were meant to be the sign to the world that we are getting close to the rise of this tyrannical global government, and that we need to prepare.
The Bible also prophesied in the book of Zechariah 12 that in the days of Israel’s second life, many nations will come against it in hatred. We’ve certainly seen this in many ways already.
Let me end with this- what has happened on the earth over the last 16 months was all predicted in the bible too.
The lockdowns, the mandates, the passports, “The Great Reset”, and other forms of government control are all leading us towards this more powerful, more centralized, governmental structure. That’s not conspiracy theory, it’s simply prophecy being fulfilled.
These prophecies were written way before anyone could conceive of the World Health Organization, The United Nations, The World Economic Forum, The World Trade Organization or any other global governing agency.
It was also way before anyone could conceive of surveillance cameras, the internet, digital passports, drones, artificial intelligence, cyborgs (which China and the US are working on developing right now), and other technological advances that are going to make this type of governmental structure possible in the years to come.
I say all that to say, don’t consume “news” and think you’re getting the full story on anything. The devil is called in scripture “the prince of the power of the air” (Ephesians 2) and that includes the “airwaves.” He is transmitting his lies fiercely right now, so we must be able to discern correctly.
Thankfully, God already told us what is going to happen, so seek Him, trust Him and filter everything you see, hear or read through what He already told us would happen.
As Psalm 91 says- when you do that, You will be hidden under the shelter of His wing and He will protect you.
I know this is weighty, but because I love you, it had to be said. If you want to know more, feel free to ask.
God bless you!
