In 2021, it is easy to imagine that western civilization is on the brink of major change, be it for the best or for the worst. Some developing concerns are forming and will arise to change humanity’s destiny.
The Mark of the Beast
As you are well aware, society is becoming increasingly divided. This division and subsequent demonization could result in persecution or even genocide.
Some Christians have postulated that this mark of differentiation, to deny business, free speech and freedom of movement, is found in the growing emphasis on the vaxxed and the un-vaxxed. Whilst I believe that the protection of one’s health and the health of the population is vital, I also don’t think that the vax is necessarily the mark of the Beast. However, the radical humanistic system surrounding this issue will no doubt give rise to ‘The Mark’.
I have heard violent rhetoric from both sides of the debate, with some liberals even demanding that the other side to be exterminated for the greater good of humanity. This is a dangerous development. With France introducing a ‘vax’ passport and other countries considering similar systems, this no doubt will be a way of controlling movement, business transactions and the freedom of speech.
Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. (Revelation 13:16-17)
The intellectual narcissism of the radical, leftist woke ideology will target Christians and conservatives because of its underlying unwillingness to acknowledge the merits of opposing views. This unwillingness is derived from a love of sin, godlessness and self-worship. It can be seen by approving of segregation in schools and educating the youth that one race is evil while another is superior. This ignores completely the unity and equality humanity has as children of the Living God.
Instead, morality is denied and hatred is directed towards anyone that disapproves of neo-marxist views pertaining to race, gender, sexuality and history. Christians and conservatives are then positioned in the minds of the populace as inhuman and evil, even though they follow the Word of the Lord. Private and public organisations have moved to censor and socially punish those who deny or oppose the radical left. It is only a matter of time before the terrible ideals espoused in the movie, ‘The Purge’, are given creedence and the state sanctions the removal of Christians and conservatives.
Another angel, a second, followed, saying, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, she who made all nations drink the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality.” (Revelation 14:8)
Mass polarisation and distrust against Christians and conservatives will be propagandised by the media and the government. By labelling them as “terrorists” and “white supremicists”, it will make it easier for the unthinking, godless public to hate them.
A War with Russia and China
Both Russia and China are working together and engaging in military exercises. The stated purpose is to “bring down US arrogance.”
The Chinese Communist Party spokesman said:
“China and Russia must unite a large number of developing countries to find the right opportunities and agendas to bring down US arrogance.
In this way, Western countries will realize that the United States is not all-powerful and always victorious. “
Statements by a Chinese General:
“This is the first time that the Russian Army has come to China for a strategic exercise.
It is also the fourth year in a row that Russia and China have been holding strategic exercises together.
This shows the strategic cooperation between Russia and China and the determination and ability of the two armies to ensure regional peace and stability.
This will promote the development of mutual trust between the two Armies
The two countries will set up a Joint Headquarters and join forces during the exercise.
In fact, in order to help the Russian forces to adapt quickly to the Chinese conditions, a Chinese accounting support company has made extensive preparations “.
The name of the exercise is “The Zapad / Interaction-2021” and is a combination of the large annual Russian military exercise “Zapad” and the Chinese “Interaction-2021”.
The exercise will take place from August 9-13 and will involve 13,000 troops from Russia and China. (Hal Turner 9th August).
There is no longer any denial that the US and west are the enemy to both China and Russia, who are angry over trade, political and territorial claims.
Perhaps the US and the west is this great city in Revelation 18:10):
“Alas! Alas! You great city, you mighty city, Babylon! For in a single hour your judgment has come.”
What Shall We Do?
Revelation 14:7 states: “Then I saw another angel flying directly overhead, with an eternal gospel to proclaim to those who dwell on earth, to every nation and tribe and language and people. And he said with a loud voice, “Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come, and worship him who made heaven and earth, the sea and the springs of water.”
Shall we not fear our Lord, trust in Him and worship His Glory?
