Echoes From the Campfire

He already had blisters enough.  But he never considered backing out, once the commitment was made.”
              –Elmer Kelton  (The Good Old Boys)

    “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”
              –1 Corinthians 15:58 (NKJV)
Friends, I would ask you to take heed to what’s before you.  Look at what the media can do to a pestilence.  Fear runs rampant, there is massive hoarding, along with a continual build up of hatred toward conservatives.  If you are a scoffer, or a nonbeliever, or even a pseudo-Christian don’t be surprised if one day you don’t see your Christian friends.  Soon, and I believe very soon, the trumpet is going to sound.  
    More and more the liberal agenda is being pushed and stopped primarily by Bible-believing Christians, but when the Church is gone, what will hold them back?  Right now there is moderate pandemonium over a pandemic, soon there will be mass chaos.  It will take a strong-armed man to take control–enter the Antichrist.  Right after the Rapture, he will appear.  The “Seals” are about to be opened in heaven.

          “Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, ‘Come and see.’  And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.”
                    –Revelation 6:1-2 (NKJV)

Do not confuse the “white horse” here in Revelation 6 with the one upon the Lord will ride in Revelation 19.  It is the Lord, Himself who is opening this sea.  The rider of this horse will bring unheard of evil into the world.  This is the man known as the Antichrist.
    Man now is crying for globalism, a one-world government and this man will give it to them.  He will have tremendous power to rule and paradoxically confuse the people of the world.  He will be a conqueror, not just in war, but also diplomacy and financial.  Millions will recognize him as the coming Messiah; someone who will give them hope, but in the end he will only bring despair.  Paul refers to him as the “man of lawlessness.”  Others have called him the “superman that will rise out of the chaos.”  He will come as a symbol of peace, but instead will remove peace from the earth.
    I don’t think that stockpiling toilet paper will do a person any good.  In fact, I don’t think the hoarding of preppers will help them much either.  Right now governors and mayors  are telling people to turn in anyone they see not abiding by the rules set in place because of the virus.  If you think there is hate now, it will multiply after the Rapture has taken place.
