I want to look at the current state of world affairs in light of the Word of God.
CORRUPTION. Jer 17:9 “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”
The problems of the world today are caused mainly by corruption and deception. Paul tells us in 2 Ti 3:1 “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” The rest of the chapter goes on to characterise the condition of mankind which will prevail among the majority of the world’s population during the period of time the Bible calls “the end times,” or “the last days” and “the end of this age” i.e. the period of time which signifies the end of this age, immediately prior to the return of Jesus Christ to the earth to rule and reign over the world, which ushers in the new millennial age .
The problem begins right at the very top. The more power a person has, the more corrupt they become. We have seen many corrupt governments overthrown over the past few years, only to be replaced by even more corrupt leaders, or by open warfare. In some other countries where the people have tried to overthrow their governments, their attempted coups have been brutally put down by their governments with much loss of life, and have failed.
This scourge of human corruption has filtered its way down from the very top, until corruption has become endemic in most countries and societies today. Unfortunately, as time goes on, more and more governments claiming to be democratic are verging on becoming dictatorships, and more and more people are becoming infected with the corruption virus, and we can see it happening in front of our eyes right around the world today.
Isa 59:14 “Our courts oppose the righteous, and justice is nowhere to be found. Truth stumbles in the streets, and honesty has been outlawed. Isa 59:15 Yes, truth is gone, and anyone who renounces evil is attacked. The LORD looked and was displeased to find there was no justice.”
I find these verses to be extremely accurate today, as corrupt governments all over the world, force their evil anti God laws on their populations, and imprison the righteous when they stand against Satan, and against evil. Perverted, corrupt and totally unjust laws are introduced under the guise of “anti hate speech laws” or laws of “equal rights” Many other such laws are being forced on entire populations around the world in the name of “Political Correctness”.
Corruption does not only affect governments, it also affects religions, business, and societies of all colours, sizes and shapes, eventually even filtering its way down into families.
The United Nations continues to introduce laws which are binding on all members of the UN world wide. One of these is that it is a criminal offence to smack your child, see :- Obama and UN Join Forces to Assault Parental Rights Worldwide Click on the Green URL to read the full article.
Under the guise of fighting “violence against children,” the Obama administration has joined forces with socialist foreign regimes and various United Nations agencies in a “global partnership” to wage war on parental rights. The controversial worldwide initiative, which aims to criminalize spanking and smacking as disciplinary tools, among other things, is part of the UN’s Agenda 2030, also known as the ‘Sustainable Development Goals.“
This is a very long article, but the first two pages are well worth reading. This law opens the door for the OWG to take the children away from their parents, and institutionalise them, so they can indoctrinate them with their own OWG doctrines and ideology. (See the article.) I believe there are some who truly believe these laws will be good for the world; these are the people who believe that we should all be politically correct all the time.
Political correctness says that Muslim terrorists are not Muslim terrorists, they are just terrorists who were brought up and indoctrinated with Mohammed’s teachings of Jihad as taught in the Koran, and in obeying Mohammed’s teachings, they have gone bad. I believe that there are very many good Muslim people in the world, but I have also seen good Muslim peoples’ children finish up as terrorists.
Let us not fool ourselves, these laws which are so “Politically Correct” and which seem to the ordinary person to be good, are in fact diametrically opposed to God’s laws and to God Himself. God says, “Spare the rod and spoil (ruin) the child.” Dr Spock introduced this concept into the USA sixty odd years ago, believing it was wrong to smack children. Thirty years later he apologised to the world, admitting that his ideas were a total and unmitigated disaster. He was honest enough to admit he was totally wrong, yet today, they want to go back 60 years and try it again.
I believe the UN could one day morph into the “One World Government”, and introduce a “Cashless society” requiring some sort of identification mark, tattoo, chip or whatever to be worn, or more likely, inserted into or under the skin, to prevent it from being stolen and used by someone else. This would be used to identify them, and would allow them to buy and sell etc. I also believe this could happen in the very near future, as time is running out rapidly, and every day brings the return of Jesus Christ closer.
The corruption in the UN at all levels is horrendous, as you will see on the second page of the article dealing with the behaviour of UN troops in Africa and in other parts of the world. Their hatred of the Jews, and now also of Christians around the world, and what they have done over the past fifty years, and are continuing to do to those who worship the only true and living God, would require many books to record.
I have just watched a short video clip (13 minutes) which I think will enlighten us slightly as to what is currently going on in the world today, and on just how fast things are moving today.
I strongly recommend that you watch this video, found on the following site. http://www.prophecyupdate.com/ Click the green URL to enter the site, then wait as it loads. You will see a picture of Ahmadinejad labelled “Prophecy Update End Time Headlines” taken from the headlines on July 20th 2016. Below the video it has the heading “Watch! Share! Enjoy!”
Mat 24:44 “You also must be ready all the time, for the Son of Man will come when least expected.”
Rev(3:3) “If therefore thou shalt not watch I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee”.
I shall continue the next part of this discourse on, CORRUPTION – CONFUSION – CHAOS – CATASTROPHE – CHRIST in a day or two, because I believe we should all be aware of exactly what is going on around the world today.
