And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. (Revelation 11:15)
Election Day came and went on Tuesday, November 8, and the anticipated “Red Wave” that was expected fizzled to a slow trickle. On the positive side, Republicans seem to have pulled out a very narrow majority in the House, while the Senate count remains undetermined. It appears that the Senate may win a one-seat majority, but because of outstanding returns (which raises suspicions of voter fraud again), the results may end up in a 50-50 Senate with the Democrat VP as the tiebreaker.
I do not foresee any prospect for improvement in our government. I do not say that as a pessimist. In fact, I see the decline of our nation as a source of optimism. How? I study end-times prophecy, and I see the decline in our nation and that of the western world as the fulfillment of end-times prophecy. In His Olivet Discourse, Jesus foretold what we could expect as signs of His coming and the end of the age.
While we are not there yet, we can see (if we are paying attention) that those things are falling into place. One of the signs of the end of days describes a coming one-world government. The foundations for a one-world government are already in place in the form of the World Economic Forum and the United Nations. However, these entities cannot assume world power with a superpower like the United States getting in the way. Therefore, the USA needs to be neutralized, and we have many in our own government working to do just that.
To me, that is great news! Please do not think that I have no love for my country. I do. As I write this, we celebrate Veterans Day, and I am proud to have served in my country’s armed forces – in the US Navy. However, the nation I once served exists in name only today. I would love for our nation to turn around (repent), but I see no prospect of that. However, I have a greater hope because my eternal citizenship is in heaven. “For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens” (2 Corinthians 5:1).
Although the election results disappointed, I eagerly look for the coming of my Lord Jesus Christ. He is coming soon, and His kingdom will be one of righteousness and perfect peace. How soon? I do not know, but the darker this world gets, the closer we are to His return. In the meantime, we continue to serve, witness, and do what we know to be right so that when He does come, He will find us working at our assigned duties. “Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing” (Matthew 24:46).
We are living in the “last days,” and it is only a matter of time before the Lord says that it is enough, and He puts a final end to it all. Dear reader, are you prepared to meet the Savior when He comes to clean up this mess? If not, please read my page on “Securing Eternal Life.”
