Earthly Kingdoms Fall as the Kingdom of God Approaches
If the rapture doctrine is false and Christians are not going to fly away when things get really bad here, then what hope is there? Are we all going to die some horrible death and leave this beautiful earth to the bad guys? No! The bad guys will be dealt with by God in whatever manner he chooses while the rest of us enter into the kingdom of God here on earth. The kingdom of God comes first within us and then spreads out to others and changes the world. We are Christ’s body. The body is even now being joined with the head, Jesus. This is happening in those who have chosen to give up everything for Christ. As we give up our idols and die to self, Christ can manifest himself through us and we can do those greater works that he promised us in John 14:12, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.”
As the economy tanks, cities burn and tyrannical politicians try to control us with their draconian mandates, God is at work destroying what the Devil has built up over many millennia. God is not going to build his kingdom on the Devil’s foundation. He is bringing down the Devil’s works all over the world and very soon we are going to begin to see the kingdom coming in visible form. It is coming through God’s people—people who move at his direction and only do what he leads them to do.
Right now things are looking very grim but soon we will begin to see God’s justice being administered and miraculous signs and wonders being performed that will herald the coming of the kingdom of God in and through his people. Even now good things are happening that are not being reported—certainly not in the mainstream media, but even a lot of alternative news sites are struggling to see anything good ahead for the world. And yet, God’s promises are true and those of us who hold onto those truths and press forward into Christ, are seeing good things even now.
It is a fact that people most often find Jesus in the darkest hours of their lives. I know that was true for me. I had believed in Christ from the age of six and always said my prayers at night but I wasn’t sure God really heard me or was aware of me. Then when I was in my early twenties and pregnant with our first child, both of my parents were stricken with incurable cancers and suddenly I was confronted with tragedy that shook me to my core. Then in the midst of all this, Jesus made himself known in ways that were undeniable and I knew for the first time that he was intimately involved in our lives. At that time I vowed that I would get to know this amazing God and I made decisions that redirected the course of my life and invited in God’s awesome providential ways.
This may be happening in the lives of many people today who have lost their businesses or a loved one or perhaps lost their life savings, but you will never hear about it on the news. Tragedy can be an opportunity for people to seek God as never before, and he who seeks will find. As the Scriptures tell us in Acts, It is through much tribulation that we enter the kingdom of God.
Another good thing happening is that people are being exposed for who they really are. Governors who were elected by the people are displaying their true character during this crisis. Clearly when a governor says that you can go into a particular store but you can’t buy vegetable seeds in that same store, something is very wrong. When a young mother takes her little child to a deserted playground to push it in a swing and then gets arrested, something is amiss. When people are mandated to wear masks when in public and it is known that masks do nothing to stop a virus and that breathing your own CO2 actually activates the latent viruses we all have in our systems that can make us sick, something is clearly out of whack.
Things that were previously considered to be conspiracy theories are now being seen to be true. Agenda 21/30 for example. Only in the light of that agenda does everything we are now seeing make sense. This agenda was planned and initiated into action by a group of billionaire elites who think there are too many people on our planet and it is their duty to “cull the herd.” One plan is to get our earth’s population from somewhere around seven billion down to 500 million (check out the Georgia Guide Stones). That means a lot of people need to die. Their plans include world war, starvation (shut down meat packing plants and forbid buying seeds, etc.), sickness (breathe your own breath for several months), vaccine induced sterilization and death (496,000 children paralyzed in India because of Gates’ vaccines, see https://www.fort-russ.com/2020/04/robert-f-kennedy-jr-exposes-bill-gates-vaccine-dictatorship-plan-cites-gates-twisted-messiah-complex/) and possibly mandated vaccinations for C***id *9). Just recently I read that those who harvest our fruits and vegetables are being tested for the above mentioned virus, and in some places almost all tested positive and are forbidden to harvest the food. How strange—the same thing happened to those who work in the meat packing plants. Walmart and other box store employees are all okay but not those who harvest our food. If things don’t change, there won’t be food to buy. That’s where the kingdom of God comes in and the greater works than these shall you do. Jesus fed the 4000 and the 5000 men plus women and children when food was not readily accessible. Can he do the same again? Of course, he can. Psalm 33 says so:
No king is saved by the multitude of an army;
A mighty man is not delivered by great strength.
A horse is a vain hope for safety;
Neither shall it deliver any by its great strength.
Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him,
On those who hope in His mercy,
To deliver their soul from death,
And to keep them alive in famine.
As the above scripture rightly interpreted says, We can’t put our trust in President Trump or the U.S. military to save us from Co**d *9, food shortages, rioting mobs, Antifa or anything else. Our trust and hope is in the Lord Jesus Christ. He will deliver our soul from death and keep us alive in famine. His eye is upon those who fear him. That’s our part in all this. We are to fear him. What does that mean? To me it means find out what he wants and then do it. I realize that is over-simplified, but the fact is, it is true. To say we trust in God but never read his Word or take time to develop a relationship with him, makes it doubtful that we really fear him. Also to know what he wants and not do it, which is the state many American Christians are in, is not to fear him.
Those of us who know a little history realize that there have been many times in the 20th century when evil despotic rulers have starved to death a nation of people. Josef Stalin starved the whole nation of the Ukraine in 1932/33 and it is estimated that as many as 14.5 million people starved to death in this holodomor. Soldiers went into the rural areas and took the food away from the farmers and others who had stored provisions. Food sent from other nations was turned away. Anyone seen trying to leave the country was shot. Many people resorted to cannibalism. It is reported that the good people died first because they refused to do evil to perhaps save their own life.
Times are quite different now. There has been an ongoing move of God in the lives of many of his people to prepare them for ushering in his kingdom on earth. Christians in general believe it is time for the return of Christ. The events now occurring are global in scope and those with eyes to see and ears to hear what the Spirit is saying to his church can see that as draconian as things appear, God will use this to pave the way for the spread of the gospel all over the world. More of this will be discussed in my next article.
