Absolutely! Christ could come back at any moment to gather up his church… well, obviously, depending on which branch of eschatology you hold to, that is. Either way, many are citing the events of 2020 as a clear sign that we are entering into the final years written about in the book of Revelation. God’s Word tells us to “be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” (Matthew 24:44) It could literally be at any moment.
I believe we are COULD be facing those days of Tribulation. Think about it… the Democrat platform reads like the agenda of the anti-Christ. A one world government, one world religion and a one world currency… these are all being discussed within the Democrat platform. They are pushing for a borderless society, unifying all religions together and are discussing an economic system that would give complete control to the Federal, if not the International, governing bodies!
Now, one point that I would like to make is to reiterate what I wrote earlier… the return of Christ COULD be happening. It could be tonight… it could be in 2000 years. Only God knows. “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.” (Matthew 24:36)
When we look at world history, we see that Satan has been at work attempting to establish his earthly reign. We saw it in the Babylonian Empire, the Roman Empire, the British Empire and even with Nazi Germany. In each of these instances, we saw Satan get close to conquering the entire world and establishing a one world government, religion and currency. However, each time we saw God tell the world that it’s not time and caused these empires to implode.
What we are witnessing today is a new reiteration of Satan’s strategy, although this is the first time where he didn’t try to conquer the world militarily, but through subversive infiltration. As we write about in the new book Church & State: How the Left Used the Church to Conquer America, we’ve seen our country’s areas of influence infiltrated and hijacked: entertainment, education, media and politics. Now, they’ve set their sights on the church, and have largely succeeded in infiltrating even our beloved church.
However, 2020 has amped things up to a whole new level. We are seeing anarchy in the streets, violence at a whole new level, a worldwide pandemic and our nation as polarized as we’ve virtually ever been. What is happening here?
Well, it might be that Satan is succeeding in creating mass chaos, setting us up for the rule of the anti-christ.
We might be witnessing a Great Reset, as this could be that moment of God thwarting Satan’s plans, telling him that it’s not time for the end of days. What we might be seeing is the globalists, working to implement Satan’s plans, are realizing that they are caught and exposed, all while facing in destruction of their plans. Donald Trump might be that instrument that God uses to signal to Satan that his Seven Year Reign is not right around the corner. In response, the Left and Satan are doing everything that they can possibly do to prove God wrong. But we, as Christians, know that God is in control.
If it is, in fact, NOT God’s timing for the return of Christ, then what we are witnessing is just another example of God putting Satan in his place, letting him know that no matter how strategic his plans are, they cannot be fully implemented without God’s approval.
Only time will tell. We, as Christians, can trust knowing that God is in control. While the rest of the world is in mass chaos, we can be at peace. A calm during the midst of the storm.
Let’s be sure that we are proclaiming the Gospel and doing everything that we can to thwart Satan’s plans, all while knowing God is fully in control and the future history of the world will only roll out exactly as He has planned.
