¿What in the World is going on?

¿What in the World is going on?

Just read the headlines from from a London newspaper website! http://www.telegraph.co.uk

• Fresh disturbances in Eltham, south-east London
• Shops close early in Manchester and Birmingham
• Police deployed across cities as all leave cancelled
• Fears of backlash over ‘racist killings’ of three men
• Water cannon could be used on mainland for first time, PM says
• First rioters convicted as courts work to clear backlog

These are the people that the current US administration held up as examples for us to emulate. They all have public funded health care. Why are they happy and content? I cannot help but think of the words of Jesus in Matthew 24. Read what it says:

[4] And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. [5] For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. [6] And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. [7] For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. [8] All these are the beginning of sorrows. [9] Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. [10] And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

It has long been known that the church in England has lost its influence in that country. In the mean time, Islam has grown and sharia law has been set up in parts of the country. When I first saw this, I immediately thought about verse 10, but then as I looked up the passage and re-read the surrounding verses, it really stood out. Yes, we have always had earthquakes, wars, rumors of wars. But have we ever had a time with so much of these types of things happening so frequently and globally? It is the “divers places” that I think makes it come together. Things are happening around the world all at once. All these things are happening all the time time. When Jesus says “sorrows” in the KJV, that is interpreted in modern American English as labor or birth pains. They start off slow, but as the time gets closer for the big event, the increase in intensity and happen closer together. Some had predicted the riots in Tunisia would spread to other countries in the middle east, but I do not recall anyone predicting that England would be come involved. Could America be next? How many false teachings are accepted in this country? Have we turned away from God enough that this could happen nationwide here? Many of the big cities, absolutely! Many more of the smaller cities? It is a real possibity. Do you live in a small town or a rural area? When you leave church on Sunday, how many homes do you pass that the people are still home? Are the stores full of people? Are the restaraunts up and running? If just the majority of these people were in church, every church parking lot would be over crowded, businesses would close on Sunday because they would have no customers or workers available to run then operations. I am not saying it is going to happen here, but remember a few years ago, we had riots in Los Angeles that took days to get under control. I believe it is a real possibility. Do you?

  1. If you take a peek at my new opinion piece it can maybe help you to understand the problem. The issue is that mine is part of a myriad of opinions on the subject but it does highlight all sides of the argument

    • I want to thank your for sharing your opinion piece! It is wonderful to gain perspective from within the country that is being discussed. My only perspective is from media and internet. What it all really boils down to is that people have no real direction in life. They have no direction because they do not submit to God. I actually heard the audio of the girls you quoted who were “showing the rich people…” The only reason they were at a “protest” was to recieve the free alcohol! They had no clue what was going on. Thanks again for sharing and thank you for reading my blog.
