PEOPLE GET READY ... JESUS IS COMIN'
Hello again folks! While the Olympics are paraded and trumpeted 24/7 on our television screens; the Russian Bear has indeed found its tooth and claw.
Regardless of who started it, the situation in South Ossetia was a open invitation for Russia to [a] reclaim lost land; [b] control the only other oil land pipeline into the West; [c] severely damage Georgia's chances of joining NATO by overthrowing her government for a Moscow-friendly one; [d] make a clear statement of intent to Israel [who have provided military assistance to Georgia] and [e] make a clear statement to the United States of America that they are on the wane in terms of world leadership/influence.
True Christians need not listen to the world-watchers; soothsayers and reporters [some within the 'Christian' ranks] pressing the red button and panic; neither should they be ignorant of what is really going on. But for sure, the world conditions predicted by Jesus on the Mount of Olives [see Matthew 24; Mark 13; Luke 21] are practically here ... we can reasonably expect within our lifetimes a World War III scenario; the Gog-Magog war; the rise of the 'Beast' empire; the arrival of the antichrist; the imposition of the 666 'Mark of the Beast' et al.
We can also expect the the rapture [not necessarily pre-Tribulation]; the Second Advent of the Lord Jesus Christ; the Sheep-Goat judgement; the 1,000 Millenial Kingdom; the final imprisonment of satan and his demoniacs and then Eternity.
To quote Crystal Lewis: "People get ready ... Jesus is comin"
To quote the Lord Jesus Christ: "Go therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the world. Amen." [Matthew 28:19-20]
I think I will leave it there.
