This headline jumped out at me, from drudge none the less.  You can feel it in the air, there is an intensity and foreboding for anyone who is paying attention.

Maranatha, Lord come quickly!

Iran: Syrian crisis prelude to coming of Mahdi

‘One can smell … the end of times and the last Islamic messiah’

A high Iranian politician believes the Syrian revolution could be the catalyst for sparking a worldwide conflagration that will usher in an era of Muslim domination of the world.

“One can smell from the crisis in Syria the coming … of the end of times and the coming of the last Islamic messiah,” said Ruhollah Hosseinian, a member of the Islamic regime’s parliament. Previously he was deputy of the Intelligence Ministry and a member of board of trustees of Islamic Revolution Document Center.

Shiites, whose clerics rule Iran with an iron fist, believe that at the end of times, the 12th Imam, Mahdi, a 9th century prophet, will reappear with Jesus Christ at his side, kill all the infidels and raise the flag of Islam in all four corners of the world. Many analysts believe Iran is seeking nuclear capability to bring on that Armageddon.

Based on hadiths by Muhammad and his descendants, the Syrian revolution is a start to the coming of Mahdi, Hosseinian said in a speech quoted Thursday by Fars News Agency, a media outlet run by the Revolutionary Guards.

“Imam Sadegh (the Shiites’ 4th Imam) has stated, when the masters of the yellow flag (Lebanese Hezbollah) engage in a conflict with anti-Shiite elements in Damascus and Iranian forces join them, this is a sign and a prelude to the coming of his highness (Mahdi),” (more…)

— Matthew 24:37

It is with a heavy heart that I write this post.  Not for myself or my brother’s and sisters in Christ but for all those so deceived and deluded in this fallen world.  Any one that is awake and not in a coma over the last 48 hours should have a very hard time denying the fact we are living in the last days, the days of Noah.

Washington has been hit with scandal after scandal the size of Watergate (what are we on now 5 or 6) and yet no one seems to care and they grow bolder and stronger.

“Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many.  Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold. — Matthew 24:11-12

They call us flat-earthers because we believe the facts put before us and are not deluded by their lies.  There is no man-made global warming or cooling.  How arrogant and prideful are we (man) that we think we have more impact on God’s creation that God Himself?  Has everyone forgotten the big ball of gas that we are rotating around that constantly heats our little planet so we are not a ball of ice like Pluto?

Then there is the court ruling against marriage.  Marriage the oldest institution on earth.  I even heard the quote “We overturned God!” from one of the protestors.  Should there be any doubt what this is all about?  It is not about freedoms or rights.  It is about man shaking his fists at God and saying you are not my Master.  How sad do they really know what they are saying and what shortly awaits them based on the choice they have made?

There is a group of articles below I pulled off of Drudge.  We have accelerated down the slipper slope, the appointed time is near.  Israel is a nation again, the world is aligning against her, and we are at the end of the generation that saw her reform.  We better have our “house” in order.  Who is your Lord and Master?

Bill Whittle had a great rebuttal for how the marriage debacle should have been handled according to our founding, check it out below as well.

In Romans 10 Paul lays out how salvation is open to all, Jew and Gentile.  He writes:

“For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.” – Romans 10:4-5

What he is saying is now it is not about works or how closely to a “T” you follow the law.  But that it is through God’s gift of grace through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.  It is really that simple, and yet a hard step for some of us.

“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10:9

Christ is the narrow gate (Matthew 7:13-14), through faith in Him you will be saved.  It is the only “works” that God requires for eternal salvation.

Jan lays out quite a case below for where we find ourselves.

We are transforming into an oligarchy.  If you haven’t read 1984 recently, you may want to revisit it…

Indeed, the heart is deceitful and desperately wicked(Jeremiah 17:9). Doesn’t that take on new meaning to Americans? And the fact is that the predicted evil is waxing worse and worse (II Timothy 3). Another day, another offense and outrage.
Our hope is in the Lord!

The End-Game Has Begun

By Jan Markell

www.olivetreeviews.org


A secular talk show host I enjoy opened his program yesterday saying, “The end-game has begun.” Even the unbelieving world knows things are coming apart. Even non-Christians know that serial lying, scheming, and back door deals are not right. Men and women acting with seared consciences — blatantly mocking truth-telling — is the norm with some today. And it troubles some of us that many Americans hate God, America and Christians in that order. In fact, they are obsessed with blotting out all three. Millions of people of all denominations or no denomination do not want a secular-humanist socialist utopia in America.

Another secular talk show host who is most often an optimist said this week that he fears America will not last until the next election. At least, will not last in the form it has been in for a couple of centuries.

Here’s a quick review that lets you know we’re in an Alice-in-Wonderland world. Sadly, you haven’t fallen down any hole; rather, everyday events are just bizarre thanks to the hastening of an end-time clock.

We have seen political bullying and in-your-face appointments that are going to further tear America down. The recent appointment of Samantha Power as U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. is stunning. She once advocated the hostile invasion of Israel by the U.S.! Talk about wicked foreign policy. It’s not popular policy with God either and that is the real tragedy!

Wow, isn’t it just amazing how when you hear truth spoken that something inside you just jumps and kicks?  I believe that is the Holy Spirit.  But some people can look at the same words and feel nothing.  Patrick dives into that in his article below: Deception and Perception.

They want to believe and live the deception because the ramifications of true reality are too terrifying to contemplate.  Thus, the pleasant lie is chosen over the unpleasant truth.

Truer words have not been spoken.  I see and feel this everyday, as I am sure you do as well, when we try to wake people up or even broach the subject of the last days.

Bold truth being proclaimed always does have a sting, especially to those that deep down know it is true.

What we are seeing today is evil.  It is enveloping this world as I have never imagined it could.  You can not escape it.

This is not God’s choice.  It is the result of the choices of our nation.

What’s coming is not God’s desire that it should happen, it’s the natural consequence of a nation and world that’s rejected God in favor of rebellion against Him.  Sin always destroys. You cannot choose it without also choosing the resultant misery and judgment that comes with it.  Interesting that one of Satan’s names is the Greek word: Apollyon, which means “Destroyer.”

We need not hide our heads and deny what is happening. But Take Heart, do not be afraid.

We are temporary residents of this country only. Our eternal citizenship is in the kingdom of the Everlasting God.  All else will pass away.

So how shall we live then, in these uncertain times of evil?

Be sure to read Patrick’s full article below, it is extremely good and enlightening.  It will give you much to ponder.

Maranatha, Lord come quickly!

Deception and Perception

By Patrick Wyett


When you woke up today, how did you see the world around you?

“Yeah,” you might say, “I know that things are getting bad.”

Do you? How bad are things getting?

Or better yet, how bad are things already?

The basic premise of the movie, “The Matrix” is that people are living in a completely fabricated lie, which most are unaware of.  Said deluded people are so programmed and comfortable with the lie that they can’t and won’t conceive of any other possibility. They want to believe and live the deception because the ramifications of true reality are too terrifying to contemplate.  Thus, the pleasant lie is chosen over the unpleasant truth.

At the time “The Matrix” came out, there were those who got it and enjoyed the movie and those who didn’t get it and thought the whole thing was confusing and pointless. Back then I had thought the movie served as a measure one’s intelligence; I was wrong. The movie served as a gauge of the viewer’s discernment, and concurrently, the level of their indoctrination.

One’s perception doesn’t alter reality, only the view of it.

“And Jesus answered and said unto them, take heed that no man deceive you.” (Matthew 24:4).

We live with a startling paradox. The word “politician” immediately brings to mind the vices of greed, corruption and lying to many. This doesn’t apply to all politicians, just most of them. Yet we want to believe that despite differences in rhetoric, party affiliation and proclaimed ideologies, that our elected officials─those same greedy, corrupt liars just identified─somehow want to do what’s best for our country.
