ANOTHER VIEW: VIOLENCE

Hello again folks! You dare not take the Book of Genesis as literal unless it tells you not to do so. Before the worldwide flood of Noah, the Book of Beginnings tells us this about the society of those dark days:

"The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth." [Genesis 6:11-13]

The scripture stats that "... the earth was filled with violence." When these inspired words came to mind, it made me think of the appalling violence taking place not only in Gaza but also in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Sudan, Egypt, sub-Saharan Africa and in many other places - specifically where islam is seen to be on the march. Bible prophecy is midrashic in places and there is often a repetition of cyclical prophetic fulfilment leading up to the ultimate and final fulfilment. An example of this is all the types of antichrists that there have been and will be up to and including the final one.

The violence and intimidation we see in the islamic world seems to be as utterly awful as that which the LORD saw before the Flood and His Righteous judgement unfolded. I wonder if the violence of an islam dominated last days world will mirror that of the antediluvian world? We can already see how much wickedness is afoot in those areas. There really is nothing new under the sun.

Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

God bless you and God bless Israel ... KJS ... 25-July-2014
