Feeling Helpless These Days? REJOICE!!
I was just praying for healing over a friend and was contemplating how even our cells must fall under the power of the name of Christ. Jesus was not a liar. All his promises are true. He told us that we could do all he could do- and more- because of the Holy Spirit he was sending us. Everything must obey the name of Jesus. Everything. And then it occurred to me that the entire world must also come into order upon the command of Christ. In fact, the entire world is already coming into order according to the commands of God. It is spinning and moving exactly according to God’s plan from the very beginning. I suddenly realized that this is truly something to rejoice about- even with all the chaos and evil, we should rejoice because everything is under God’s commands! A great light shimmered through the darkness of my mind for a wonderful moment.
For just the briefest second, I felt I could see heaven and all its purpose; I had no fear at all. I understood that everything is as it should be. Even all the evil in the world is as it should be. This crazy campaign season, the likelihood of Hillary being the next president, the likelihood of losing America as a sovereign nation, the insanity of Syria and the Middle East, Israel’s likelihood of getting involved somehow and retaking the Golan Heights and the Gaza Strip, Russia and China somehow looming darkly in their corner of the world… somehow it all laid down like a map on a table and made sense. It is all meant to be- it is all under the command of Jesus Christ.
I suddenly lost all fear and anxiety and came to understand that our job as Christians is not to fight this map. It is to help those who are innocent within it. It is to help those who are being injured in it. So many children are suffering. So many old people are cold and frightened. So many people are dying without knowing the hope of what they were born for- to become Children of the Living God! Our job is to give them all these things! We are too small to change the events of our time. We must always work our hardest to achieve the best world possible, of course, but if we lose, as appears to be happening now, it is ok. We have to know that it must be according to God’s plan. Nothing happens in this world without his permission. Of that, we can be very sure. Once we can see that, we should be restful, not defeated.
We all know that this world must get worse before the Lord returns and his return is where all our hope lies! And we can share the hope and promise of eternal, joyful life through Christ, one soul at a time. We can feed, clothe and comfort the world one person at a time. The Lord, in his intelligence and wisdom, has sprinkled us like leavening throughout the world so that we can do this very efficiently. This is what we can do.
All the hand wringing in the world helps no one. No man can help us. Trump can’t help us. Even if he was a worthy candidate, everyone can see that the corrupt news organizations are campaigning hard against him. As I told you from the beginning, the election is fixed. Hillary will win. The Progressives don’t even hide themselves anymore; they’ve become quite brazen in their cheating and outright plans to undermine U.S. sovereignty. Hasn’t Hillary already stated her dream to create an ‘open’ western ‘hemisphere’? Another word for that is the ‘American Union’ (ie, combine North America with South America and get one giant country.) They have been caught giving Hillary the debate questions ahead of time! They don’t bother reporting on Hillary’s and Obama’s crime of treason and murder at Benghazi, their criminal legislation, their insider trading, the illegal emails, etc, etc, etc. The press is a joke. But it is powerful and even though the American people know it is a joke, they are still influenced by the repetitive accusations. Remember I told you about the propaganda that is now legal (via NDAA 2012)? This is it. It works- even when you know it is happening. That’s just how the human brain works. I’m sure even you have felt its influence. I have.
So. Bottom line: put your faith in God. We are ‘helpless in the face of the Beast.’ Even if the anti-christ has not shown up in person yet, we are still in the end times. All the signs are there. But we should rejoice because all the ancient prophecies are coming true before our eyes. And the whole point of prophecy is to prove that God is God!! The very fulfillment of these prophecies in our lifetime is a miracle (especially the reformation of Israel in 1947)- we are a blessed generation- this is what the Bible says of us. So, all these events prove that God is real and in control. And it is exactly when we are most defeated politically that we should know that Christ is even nearer and thus, our rejoicing should be even greater! Such is the irony of God. It should reassure you, not frighten you. According to the same prophecies, the Children of God will be protected by the hand of God. So, be at peace, my friends, and just help out those who are less fortunate than you.
Accept that we, the ‘saints’ have lost the political battle on earth. This isn’t resignation, defeatism or paranoia. It is a simple statement of fact. The Bible predicts this and so, it must be. The enemy has control of everything that matters as far as earthly power is concerned. It is out of our hands. And it’s OK, because we will not loose in the end. We have Someone coming who will win it on his own power, not by our power. This, too, is predicted. I don’t mind that one bit. And neither should you. This is all by design, according to the Bible, because God wants the entire world to know that Jesus saves the world, not the power of men. It is all foretold. And it will happen. Just like every other prophecy that has happened thus far.
I pray that the one moment of light I had during my prayer can be conveyed to you through this essay. The extreme beauty and clarity of that moment has been dimmed somewhat for me, perhaps because the heavenly can only be experienced for the briefest of moments, lest we break apart by its glory, but the reasoning behind it remains. And the comfort. I hope you can see it too.
