U.S. Economy & War
When there is a transition from one world power to another, there seems to be a shaking that happens in that transition period. That transition seems to involve two areas. First it affects the economy of the nation being transitioned out and it involves warfare. Historically one can see this when the Babylonians conquered the Assyrians or when the Persians conquered the Babylonians. It was the same for the Greeks over the Persians and the Romans over the Greeks. Is the world we live in today involved in another transition? Are we being transitioned out of a worldly kingdom into God’s kingdom? Every generation that has lived since the Apostle Paul has believed that they would be the last generation; they believed the Lord Jesus Christ was going to return sometime in their lifetime. Of all these generations – one will be right!
No one can put a date or a time on when this amazing event will take place, however Jesus did tells us that there would be “birth pains”. Any woman who has become a mother can testify that birth pains get stronger and stronger the closer one gets to actually giving birth. Our world is being shaken. Not just one country but the entire globe is feeling the effects of natural disasters, financial chaos and rumors of war.
At some point Russia will rise in global prominence. For the prophecy of Ezekiel 38 to be fulfilled, Russia will have to be able to form alliances with certain nations. In order for that to happen, America will have to lose some of its world power. Despite what people may think, the United States of America still has the strongest military in the world and the American dollar is still the world’s currency. Can those two factors change? Yes. And some day they probably will. What would happen if America suffered severe financial collapse causing the dollar to no longer be the world’s currency? What would happen if the rapture took place and America lost a percentage of its population? Would that open the door for a nation like Russia to rise in power leading to the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38 and setting the stage for the anti-christ to rule?
No one knows the day or the hour but the birth pains are getting stronger. Is it false labor or are the current world events the real deal?
