Echoes From the Campfire

I think the Good Lord must have sprinkled a few mean ones in amongst the good…maybe to keep us on our toes. I don’t know for sure. I do know I’m sick and tired of bullies. They’re the kind to shoot you in the back.”
–Rod Collins (Bitter’s Run)

“You brood of snakes! How could evil men like you speak what is good and right? For whatever is in your heart determines what you say.”
–Matthew 12:34 (NLT)
“I, Daniel, was overcome and lay sick for days… I was left alone, looking at this great vision. No strength was left in me; my face grew deathly pale, and I was powerless.”
–Daniel 8:27; 10:8 (HCSB)

“Go on your way, Daniel, for the words are secret and sealed until the time of the end.”
–Daniel 12:9 (HCSB)

Let me tell you, there is a day coming, and it has to be coming soon. There are so many signs pointing to the coming of the Lord and also to the man of lawlessness–the Antichrist. Man is being deluded thinking that there can be world peace. Man is confused thinking that tolerance is the antidote to man’s problems. We are seeing the thoughts of Rousseau, Nietzsche, and others in action. Live as you please; follow your inherent nature. Chaos will then ensue, followed by the rise of the superman.
The nation, indeed the world, is in the throes of confusion. Remember, God is not the author of confusion; it comes from the “father of lies.” If a man thinks he is a woman, well, he is very definitely confused, being deceived, and believing a lie. It goes right back to the first lie and deception at the beginning in the Garden of Eden. Man, instead of rising to the image of God is degrading himself lower and lower. Thinking himself to be wise he is becoming more and more a fool.
The world is being told that the only hope for man to survive is the come together in unity–globalism. That we need to overcome our differences and unite through shared values. Read the words of the Secretary-General of the United Notions (excuse me, Nations), Antonio Guterres given in a speech New Years’ Day 2018.

“On New Years’ Day 2018 I am not issuing an appeal, I am issuing an alert–a red alert for our world… I call for unity… We can settle conflicts, overcome hatred, and defend shared values. But we can only do it together. Unity is the path. Our future depends on it.”

Wow! Is he the Antichrist? No, I don’t think so, but he is definitely has antichrist beliefs. Who are the ones standing in the way of so-called “world peace”? Who are those that are called “bigots” and “intolerant”? The United States and Christians. Another sign of the times? A fore-runner of the Antichrist? Those words should make the believer start to look up, and it should make unbelievers tremble. But, the Scripture says that they will scoff and be caught unawares on that Day.
Daniel has in its conclusion the following: “Many will be purified, cleansed, and refined; but the wicked will act wickedly; none of the wicked will understand, but the wise will understand.” (12:10, HCSB)
Have you been hearing that President Trump is not smart and not stable? Remember, those who are saying that are the same ones who say a man can be a woman and a woman can be a man. And take it further, that right is wrong and wrong is right. Ponder that and beware!
