7 And there was war in heaven,Michael and his angels waging war with the dragon The dragon and his angels waged war,
8 and they were not strong enough, and there was no longer a place found for them in heaven.
9 And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.
10Then I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, he who accuses them before our God day and night.
11“And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death.
12“For this reason, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time.”
Yes. It passed. Final Vote: 219-210
3 As He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”
4 And Jesus answered and said to them, “See to it that no one misleads you.
5 “For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many.
6 “You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end.
7 “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.
8 “But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.
9 “Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name.
10 “At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another.
11 “Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many.
12 “Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold.
13 “But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.
14 “This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.
I begin with these two pieces of Scripture because I must correct some poor use of the term, “Armageddon,” used by House Minority John Boehner (R-Ohio). Mr. Boehner incorrectly used the term by saying that the passage of Health Care Reform would be “start of Armageddon.” It really urkes me when officials use Biblical terms they truly don’t understand and probably don’t even believe in. Armegeddon for those who don’t know comes as the climatic end War right at the time when Jesus Christ Returns and destroys all that is evil, the ‘Wrath of the Lamb.’ We are not ‘there’ yet, Mr. Boehner. As much as I am truly grieved by the loss of our once Free Nation; which is how I feel at this moment, GRIEF. I believe I understand correctly that the way of life in America has changed by the passage of this Socialist and much worse Political agenda.
It is this writers belief that what we have witnessed is historical in the sense that mass hysteria, deception, strong delusion rather, has gripped our country. There are many who are ‘awake’ who recognize the sign of the times and I’m grateful. I’ve met some beautiful Patriots and more so some pieces of the Remnant, God’s people who have not bowed to Baal and are continuing to shine brightly for the Kingdom of God. You may not agree with my Faith, you may think I’m crazy for believing in a Jewish Messiah who came from the line of Judah to save souls, to redeem the lost, to forgive all sin once and for all by HIS sacrifice, and that’s ok. You don’t have to believe what I’m saying but what I’m saying about Jesus Christ is true. His Word is true. His prophesies are going to (some have already) come true in our lifetime. I believe the stage has been set, the players are in play, and the curtain has been lifted for some time. In fact we may be moving on to Act 2 by now! It is merely our lack of understanding and great zeal for distractions that we sometimes loose sight of the ongoing spiritual Warfare taking place on a constant level.
Tonight’s loss for the GOP, the Conservative Patriot ‘Tea Party’ people is not the whole war, it’s just part of a battle in the War. Things have to progress (in this case digress) to get to the point that the Bible clearly lays out. I believe that the EVIL that is in our governmental system is truly a Demonic force and not a-typical crazy tyrannical leader. We all remember the slurs of comparing George W. Bush to Hitler, some have said the same of Barack Hussein Obama. Truly there have been and will be EVIL dictators rise in the US and elsewhere that give us pause for concern. As Christians who await their Messiah’s return we are often told ‘not to waste time’ looking for Anti-Christ. I think this is half true. We should not ‘waste’ the time, we should use the time wisely. I don’t think it is a waste of time to put on the Whole Armor of God. It is certainly not a waste of time to know the Scriptures and use Discernment and be able to test the ‘spirits’ to know if they are of the Lord or not.
In our political climate we are obviously hurt, dismayed, angry, and grieved. What we can not afford to be is hopeless. Our Hope, as Christians who are Saved by the Blood of the Lamb, comes from the LORD. Our time here is to be used wisely. The enemy, Satan, knows he has a short window of time. Ironically enough, many are calling for a one term presidency for Obama. I don’t doubt he’ll be the last US President. I don’t know how or what he’s going to do to ensure his second or indefinite term, but things will move rapidly. I’m not a prophet! I am merely stating an inevitable fact because it’s in the WORD of GOD and what is in the WORD of GOD will come to pass. We must take up our Cross and bear it! Not cow tow to what is going on-by no means am I saying sit at home and do nothing, I don’t believe in Bunker Mentality. I do however, suggest you get ready for what is coming next. Whatever things look like in the periphery, don’t take your eyes off of Jesus! Yeshua ha’Mashiach! He’s promised us so much…Look up!
