This blog called Prophecy for Today is one that specializes in bible prophecy.  I do not believe in just spewing doomsday dogma at people on the Internet.  Over the past year it has been amazing to me to find support as well as opposition.  Most of the opposition I have been given has been people who do not believe in the authority of the bible.  I always find it very interesting when they comment or try to get a rise out of me.

I am not a doomsday prepper.  I also do not endorse people running for the hills and isolating themselves in fear of what may happen to this world.  Jesus said in Luke’s Gospel, “For whosever desires to save his life will lose it, but whosever loses his life for My sake will save it.  For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world and is himself destroyed or lost?” (9:24-25).  The very thing preppers attempt to do is hold on or protect their life.  As Jesus said it is the very thing they will lose.  It is not wrong to work hard and make money and have nice things.  But if that is all we live for then it is pointless, because we gain everything then when we die we lose it all.  Or the stock market crashes and then we lose it all.  Instead of wasting time prepping we should be using that time that God gives us to share the truth of what Jesus did for the world (1 John 2:2).

Jesus came to earth to give humanity hope through faith in Him.  John 3:16, “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”  Another way to say the word “begotten” is only.  The emphasis is on the fact that Jesus was God’s only Son.

I do not believe in prepping or storing canned goods.  I believe in a Holy, loving, gracious, and Just God.  Throughout the bible whenever God judged the world or nations, He always provided a way of escape.  He did this during the flood in Genesis 6 then with Moses in Egypt.  God has a plan and though I may not understand it completely I know that He will take of His people.  We have to walk by Faith and not by sight (2 Cor. 5:7).  Believe in Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47).

Over a year ago I was listening to a blog talk prophecy radio show by John Claeys and a caller asked a question about the upcoming election.  I will never forget John’s statement to the caller, which was “There has never been a President who was elected to a second term without supporting Israel.”  President Obama is now the first.  He has been cold in his support of Israel.  Therefore, the fact that he got reelected tells me something about bible prophecy.  This is not about political parties or ideology as it is about what God is doing.

In Daniel 7, he describes four beasts.  Each beast is a representative a kingdom that is and ones that will be.  The first is Babylon, then the Medes-Persians, followed by Greece, and lastly the fourth Kingdom which is not necessarily Rome but a new world empire.  I write that it is not Rome because Daniel who correctly identifies Greece before they were really any sort of a power could have done the same with Rome.  This fourth empire is like Rome, but different.  It is more vicious and dominant than Rome ever was.  Daniel 7:23 says, “The fourth beast shall be A fourth kingdom on earth.  Which shall be different from all other kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth…”  Daniel goes on and says in verse 24, “The ten horns (of the fourth beast) are ten kings who shall arise from this kingdom…”  The day of America being a world power is swiftly coming to an end.

I am not one of those doomsday people who believe because Obama got elected that we should all run for the hills and hide in caves.  In my previous blog I wrote about how God is ultimately in control and leading us.  This is all happening to our country because God has a plan and His plan usurps anything that we would want.  Therefore, we should look to God and not our president for our help.

It seems that Obama does not have a good relationship with Israel, also America has seemed to lose it’s influence in the Middle-East.  What does that mean? It means the way is being cleared for a new leader in the Middle-East to rise up.  Who will that be?  He will be the Antichrist or as John calls him in Revelation The Beast.  America will probably be one of the ten kingdoms that Daniel 7 writes about.  The world now is becoming a much smaller place and it will be interesting to watch what will happen here in the next four years with President Obama.  All I know is that God is control.  His plan was for Obama to get elected to set up other things He is doing for His return.  May the Lord come quickly.
