When Good and Bad Clash

It seems that, with this new abortion ruling, we are seeing new extremes for good and for bad. The abortionists are venting their anger and the pro-lifers are venting their joy. I just hope we pro-lifers will not feel sorry for the sad abortionists. They have been guilty of sin too long. Their time has come. Let them meet God.

Similarly, let all Christians see sin and evil for what it is. If there are evil spirits and demons, let them be called out in Jesus’ name. If there is ongoing sin, let it be quickly rejected. It is time now to stand strong for Jesus.

There will soon be coming on the earth the ultimate stand-off between good and evil. It will happen after the Rapture—so we might see it from heaven. It will be the battle between the two witnesses who will preach the truth, and the Antichrist who is full of lies and deceit. This battle will go on for three and a half years until God’s restraints are lifted off of the Antichrist, and he will kill the witnesses. Then we will see how evil the world is. They will rejoice over their death. And will let them lie dead for three and a half days. Then when God raises them to life and takes them to heaven, we will see the good and godly ones rejoice. (Revelation 11)

So, make no mistake, there is now good and evil, and we all live and work together. We very often smile at each other and try to be at peace. But at other times, we see the differences and we clash. Sometimes it is hard to see who people are. But Jesus has said, one lives for God, the other for the devil. I think it is best that the truth be known. It is never good to live in deception. Let the truth set you free.

Now let me be clear, those who speak against the six Supreme Court justices that ruled against abortion and against all pro-life people, those are on the side of evil! Their father is the devil! Jesus said in Luke 17:1-2,

It is inevitable that stumbling blocks should come, but woe to him through whom they come! 2 It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should cause one of these little ones to stumble.

Hence, let the battle continue, good against evil, until finally God overcomes all evil and Jesus reigns over all.

The Sixth Trumpet (Revelation 9:13-21)

Studying Bible Prophecy

This sixth trumpet judgment, and the second woe, is every bit as terrible as the first woe; and it leaves us scratching our heads with questions. We will break up the verses into three parts.

Verses 13-15. Then the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 14 one saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” 15 And the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released, so that they would kill a third of mankind.

So when the sixth angel sounded his trumpet John head a voice coming from the four horns of the altar of incense—presumably, the voice of God responding to the prayers of His saints; prayer for vengeance. And He told…

The Fourth Trumpet (Revelation 8:12-13)

Studying Bible Prophecy

When the fourth angel sounded his trumpet a third of the sun and the moon and the stars were struck so that a third of their brightness and heat would be reduced.

Again, we don’t know exactly what the cause of this phenomenon is. John MacArthur suggests that it is a supernatural act of God, that He “will supernaturally reduce the intensity of the celestial bodies by one-third.”4 Hal Lindsey believes that the “light reduction will result from the tremendous pollution in the air left from nuclear explosions.”5

In either case, the result will be a radical drop in temperature, producing great changes in weather cycles as well as botanical and biological cycles. More importantly, these changes will make it much harder for all humans to live on planet earth.

But there is a second part to this trumpet judgment. As the earth is still suffering from a…

The Third Trumpet (Revelation 8:10-11)

Studying Bible Prophecy

When the third angel sounded his trumpet a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on all the fresh waters. And they called the star Wormwood because a third of the fresh water became bitter and poisonous like wormwood (a bitter and poisonous root); and many died from the waters.

Though Hal Lindsey, again, thinks that the star is another thermonuclear weapon, most commentators think it is a celestial body like a meteor or a comet. Nonetheless, the most important thing here, and in each of the first four trumpets, is the result of what will happen—a third of the fresh drinking water will be poisoned so that many will die.

The Second Trumpet — Revelation 8:8-9

Studying Bible Prophecy

When John saw the second angel sound his trumpet something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea (into the oceans and all the salt water bodies); and a third of the sea became blood, and a third of the sea creatures died; and a third of the ships that were on the sea were destroyed.

What was the mountain? The bible says “something like” a mountain was thrown into the sea; 4and it was burning with fire. So we don’t know exactly what John saw, but it looked kind of like a burning mountain. And that means that it was very big. Most commentators say that it will probably be a meteor or an asteroid. But Hal Lindsey, again, thinks it will likely be an H-bomb. He states that a hydrogen bomb that explodes in the ocean “would look like a huge, flaming mountain smashing…

The First Trumpet — Revelation 8:7

Studying Bible Prophecy

The seven trump judgments will be revealed in the breaking of the seventh seal, and are judgments of much greater intensity. Whereas the seals were each opened and revealed by the Lamb of God, the trumpets are announced by angels when they blow their trumpets.

The first four trumpet judgments are much like the plagues of Egypt as they are divine judgments on the earth. The next two involve devastation of earth’s inhabitants; and the seventh trumpet, like the seventh seal, announces all that will follow in the Tribulation: the bowl judgments, and all the events leading up to the millennial kingdom.

In the first trumpet judgment God brings hail and fire, mixed with blood; and the result will be that a third of the earth, the trees, and the grass (and probably also grains such as wheat, rice and oats) will burn up.

Now the Scriptures do not give…

The Seventh Seal (Revelation 8:1-6)

Studying Bible Prophecy

Since the events in chapter seven is parenthetical (or an interlude of time), this seventh seal should follow immediately after the sixth seal, with all of its cosmic disturbances.

Therefore, it must be our assumption that at some point during the end of the sixth seal, while men and women are hiding in caves for fear of the wrath of God, that suddenly, the skies will clear up and all the chaos will stop; that is, as Scripture says, “there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.”

Silence In Heaven

What is this silence all about? My first thought is that God will give those on earth a short break. He is not so wrathful that He will not provide any relief. He is a God of grace, and will give a time for people to rest, but also a time to prepare for what is to come…

The First Interlude: The Great Multitude (Revelation 7:1-17) – Part 3

Studying Bible Prophecy

After John sees the vision of the witnesses and the angels that will protect them, he next sees a great multitude of people standing before the throne in heaven and before the Lamb. They are clothed in white robes and they are praising God with palm branches in their hands. And many angels and the twenty-four elders and the four cherubim were also worshipping God saying,

Amen, blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever.

Then one of the elders asked John about the great multitude: “Who are they and where have they come from?” As if he didn’t know.

But he did know, and John knew it. So he said to him, “My lord, you know.”

Then the elder told John who they were.

1. They have come out of the Tribulation.They apparently were not saved…

My Great Discovery: I Can Laugh at the Evil World – Psalm 2:4

What does a Christian do in this evil world—with all the progressivism, with constant attacks on conservativism and Christianity, with government mandates, with wokeism, with all the fraud, especially with voting and in the media? If we think it is best to keep up with the news in order to be informed and to bring a positive influence, there will always be suffering—because the world is against us; it hates us.

So, this has been my dilemma and battle and cause of great sadness—to see the world falling down all around me, and to be inflicted as Lot was (2 Pt. 2:7-8). But recently, I have discovered a wonderful answer—some ways to bring help. There are a few of them.

My Discovery, Part 1 – I Can Laugh with God (from Psalm 2)

I will start with what God showed me in Psalm 2. Verses 1-3 kind of describes what is going on right now with globalism and the Great Reset, and all other such evil movements. We see it quite clearly here in these verses. They are taking counsel together against us Christians and all who are godly, and they are plotting to destroy us in order to exalt their own evil system—which eventually will become the government of the Antichrist.

But what does God do? What is His reaction to all this evil plotting against Him? He laughs! Because He knows how foolish they are and how all their plotting and planning will come to nothing. And He knows that soon His Son will take possession of all the nations of the earth and He will break them with a rod of iron in His New Kingdom which we call the Millennium (verses 6-9).

So this is my great discovery: since I am in Christ and I sit with God and His Son in the heavenly places (1 Cor. 2:6), I can laugh with Him at all that is going on in the world. God is not the least bit affected or disturbed by it, so I shouldn’t be either. And I can and should see how foolish the nations are in all their foolish plotting. And I, with God, can see how it all will end—when Christ rules the world in His wonderful kingdom of peace and love.

My Discovery, Part 2 – Being in the Word and in Prayer Helps

More recently, God reinforced what He showed me earlier in a much different way. He showed me that I can have some comfort and peace (from the evils of the world) in knowledge—knowledge of truth, of Him, and of His word. There is some knowledge to be gained in books that speak the truth (about many things); but a greater knowledge is in the bible and also in prayer.

My Discovery, Part 3 – In Bible Prophecy

When I study bible prophecy and thus learn many things of the future, this gives me an unbelievable edge on all the so called “elite” and experts in the world. I know some things they don’t know—because they regard the bible as foolishness. Hence, with this future knowledge I, with God, sit with Him and laugh!

This discovery was greatly reinforced one evening as I was sitting on my couch watching one of my favorite TV series, 24. It is a series of 24 highly dramatic hour-long shows staring Kiefer Sutherland, as Jack Bauer, where Jack and a cast of other CTU (Counter Terrorist Unit) workers are constantly, for 24 hours, trying to counter terrorist activities against America. I love the show, but it has been a constant stress to me, especially seeing it for the first time. But I discovered that seeing these shows for the second and third time is significantly less stressful—because I know what’s going to happen. So, it gives me an entirely different perspective. And this is how we can and should view what is going on in the world.

So, when I learn (from my reading) what Klaus Schwab is doing and planning in his Great Reset, and what John Kerry is doing in his climate change stuff, and what Stephanie Kelton I doing with her Modern Monetary Theory (that we can just print more money), and what President Biden is up to, I should not worry or be stressed out, and I can actually laugh at it all and be at peace—because I know what is going to happen! I have seen the movie, and guess what? God wins! And we win!

The First Interlude: More About The 144,000 Witnesses (Revelation 7:1-17) – Part 2

Studying Bible Prophecy

 Here are six points to consider:

1. They are all Jews from twelve tribes.These witnesses are not Jehovah’s Witnesses, or Mormon elders, or some symbol of the church. They are Jews. And even though most Jews today don’t know which tribe they belong to, God does. They are not lost to Him. He will select twelve thousand from each of the twelve tribes that are listed in Revelation 7:5-8.

2. Israel will become the evangelistic nation she was meant to be.When Israel rejected Jesus her Messiah, she experienced a spiritual hardening. But the bible says (in Romans 11:25) that that hardening will not be permanent. When the fullness of the Gentiles comes (when the complete number of elect Gentiles are saved) and the Rapture occurs, then God will turn His focus on Israel. The 144,000 Jewish witnesses will be the first fruits of a new redeemed Israel; and…
