Trouble Ahead - By Daymond Duck -
When asked about the signs of His coming, part of Jesus' reply was:
Famines, pestilences, earthquakes, persecution, etc. (Matt. 24:7-9): Coronavirus, locusts, damage churches, synagogues, etc.
Kingdom against kingdom (ethnos against ethnos; people group against people group (Matt. 24:7): could include black race against white race, Sunni Muslims against Shiite Muslims, etc.
Iniquity shall abound (Matt. 24:12): Abortion, gay marriage, riots, deceit, etc.
Like the days of Noah (Matt. 24:37: Great wickedness (Gen. 6:5).
Distress of nations with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring (Luke 21:25): riots and/or storms, hurricanes, etc. (Rev. 17:15).
There now seems to be ample proof that America is the victim of an organized effort to weaken the U.S., and it could signal more trouble between now and the next election.
I have concluded that Antifa, Black Lives Matter, extremist groups and socialists that give large sums of money to the Democrats and their Party (and to a lesser number of Republicans) are tools of the Deep State.
If these people knew Bible prophecy, they would realize that God will let the Deep State succeed, and this submission to Satan is the beginning of an unstoppable worldwide day of trouble on earth (Zeph. 1:15).
Here are ten signs that there is more trouble ahead.
One, on June 2, 2020, Dave Hodges reported that Social Security is at risk, and the impact on Medicare is up in the air because of the Coronavirus lockdown.
Millions of people are out of work and not paying into these funds, but the money is still going out; and some politicians are delaying the economic restart.
Those on Social Security and Medicare need to vote in November and remember the politicians that refused to lift their stay-at-home orders when they were asked to let their citizens go back to work.
Politicians that say hundreds of people marching in the streets, rioting and looting, won't spread the Coronavirus while refusing to allow churches and businesses to open because of the Coronavirus are clearly not acting in the best interests of our nation.
Two, concerning a global economic collapse in the Tribulation Period, on June 1, 2020, the Congressional Budget Office projected that the U.S. will lose about $16 trillion in GDP over the next 10 years as a result of the Coronavirus shutdown.
As that great sermon says, there is a payday someday.
Three, on May 29, 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court essentially ruled that the First Amendment freedom of religion clause in the U.S. Constitution can be set aside by biased public officials.
Chief Justice Roberts wrote an opinion that essentially said it is not unlawful for public officials to discriminate against churches by limiting attendance at church services, even though those same public officials did not limit attendance at bars, stores, theaters, and other places.
As I understand what Roberts said, under certain circumstances public officials must have broad authority to act without being questioned despite the plainly stated freedom of religion clause in the U.S. Constitution.
This kind of distorted thinking is no different from the thinking that says women have a Constitutional right to an abortion.
Setting aside the U.S. Constitution has caused decades of trouble in our nation.
Four, on June 3, 2020, it was reported that a former lawyer in the Obama administration posted a $250,000 bail for the woman accused of throwing a Molotov cocktail into a police car in New York City.
The alleged firebomber is also accused of passing out Molotov cocktails to other rioters and looters.
She was arrested in a van that was carrying bomb-making materials, and police have at least one photograph of her carrying a Molotov cocktail.
It was reported that the former Obama administration lawyer that bailed out the firebomber received scholarships to attend law school from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans (Paul is a nephew of George Soros).
George Soros denies that he is funding riots and looting, but his foundations have contributed millions of dollars to Democrats, Obama, (Hillary) Clinton, Biden, Antifa and Black Lives Matter.
Some will say this article is too political, but it is not hard to find the political affiliation of the officials that protected the rioters and looters while citizens were being injured and killed (mostly black people whose lives didn't matter to the thugs and politicians that surrounded themselves with security forces), and businesses and police cars were burning, etc.
It is a fact that NY Democrat Mayor DeBlasio's daughter was arrested, Democrat presidential Candidate Biden's staffers took up an offering to bail out protesters, and a lawyer in former Democrat Pres. Obama's administration bailed out a woman accused of throwing a Molotov cocktail into a police car.
On June 6, 2020, six policemen were injured in Seattle by improvised explosives.
Jesus said, "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself cannot stand" (Matt. 12:25).
We may well be witnessing a New World Order attempt to divide the U.S., and God may be allowing it because Pres. Trump is pushing for a map that will divide Israel (Zech. 12:3).
People are ignoring God and the Scriptures, and that is the real problem.
Five, perhaps Christians should notice that a church (St. John's Episcopal Church in Washington D.C.) has been torched, a church (St. Patrick's Cathedral) in NY, two churches (St. Paul's Episcopal Church and West Broad Church of Christ in Richmond VA) have been vandalized, a Jewish group (Beth Ahabah in Richmond VA) had its windows broken out, and several Synagogues in Los Angeles have been damaged.
The members of these churches and synagogues had nothing to do with the wrongful death of George Floyd (and for whatever it is worth, many black people are not blaming Pres. Trump, because his approval rating is going up with them).
Lawless people with no respect for God desecrated these churches and synagogues, and it is a reminder that the ultimate lawless one (the Antichrist; against the Christ) is coming (II Thess. 2:5-12).
Six, on June 5, 2020, the Minneapolis City Council agreed to disband their police department and replace it with a non-violent public safety group that "doesn't fear our residents" and "murder black men," according to one of the council members.
They offered few details about how this will work or when it will start, the Mayor is opposing it, and other politicians (including the Mayor of New York) are talking about defunding the police.
Change is needed; but without the police, lawlessness and anarchy will increase, and former New York policeman, Dan Bongino, predicts that thousands will die.
I am not a prophet, but if politicians go through with this, I predict it will fail, and then they will call for UN troops to be brought in to disarm Americans.
Seven, on May 28, 2020, Prime Min. Netanyahu indicated that he will move forward on the annexation of about 30% of Judea and Samaria on July 1, 2020, and he will accept Palestinian demilitarized rule (but not a state) over part of the Promised Land.
In connection with this, PA leaders are consulting with Arabs, international groups, terrorist groups and others on ways to stop the annexation.
For whatever it is worth, it is my understanding that the PA will not be allowed to have an independent state unless two things happen: 1)They agree to a peace treaty in the next four years (from Israel's agreeing to it) and 2) They are no longer a threat to the existence of Israel.
Their agreement is not worth the trash that I set out by the side of the road.
Eight, on June 1, 2020, Israeli Defense Min. Gantz ordered the Israeli military to prepare to deal with increased terrorism and violence when Israel annexes part of Judea and Samaria.
He said, "Striving for peace while maintaining security (peace and safety) is foundational for every Israeli citizen."
Saying "Peace and safety" is a reminder of trouble ahead (I Thess. 5:3).
Nine, on June 1, 2020, it was reported that the U.S., Israel and Saudi Arabia are holding secret discussions with Jordan's knowledge to change the makeup of the Islamic Waqf that controls activities on the Temple Mount, with the goal of advancing Pres. Trump's peace proposal.
Jordan is supposed to appoint, fund and control the Islamic Waqf, and Jordan has often refused to change the process; but Waqf members die, need to be replaced, etc., and some of the newer members have started taking money from Turkey.
Jordan is quietly discussing changes with the U.S., Israel, and Saudi Arabia to get Turkey (non-Arabs) out of the picture.
People should not conclude that this will lead to a rebuilt Temple, but it is linked to Trump's peace proposal, and it signals a softening of the Islamic position on the Temple Mount.
Saudi Arabia is seeking a better relationship with Israel, and Jewish access to the Temple Mount would be a major breakthrough.
Saudi Arabia is even encouraging the PA to start negotiating Trump's peace proposal with Israel.
Ten, on June 6, 2020, it was reported that a national emergency has been declared in Pakistan where a locust plague of Biblical proportions is threatening 25 million people with famine.
Look up, lift up your heads; true Christians will escape the worst of the trouble ahead (Luke 21:28).
