A teenager (14 years old) shot and killed a 1st grader at Townsend Elementary School in South Carolina. The name of the school is significant. Townsend is very significant as a “word” in history.
There is always significance to what God allows to happen in history. Christians can gather “hints” from God in places, names, and events that God allows in history.
Why does God allows somethings to happen in certain places? Name is significant.
Names of people and places have significance. The child who died from Townsend Elementary School is Jacob Hall. Why is this name significant? What message is God sending through the name? God is in total control of history, and without God’s permission, nothing can happen in history.
Names have significance in the Bible. Names have significance in history.
It is no accident that God used Dr. Martin Luther King to lead the Civil Rights movement and become a symbol for Civil Rights.
Dr. Martin Luther King was named after Martin Luther, who was the founder of the Protestant Christian church in 1517.
After all, the United States of America was created through the American Revolution, which was a type of coup against the civil authorities (government authorities) at that time, which was England.
Coup can happen in any country.
But with Turkey, there is something different. ISIS has given its 5 year plan of expansion that includes parts of Europe. What happened in Turkey could mean that ISIS has made contact with Turkey’s military leaders, who are sympathetic to ISIS cause.
After all, if Muslim civilians can be radicalized to support ISIS, then Muslim soldiers and military officers can be, too.
For Christians, events in the world point to the prophecies in the Bible. Which parts of current events are fulfilling which parts of the prophecies in the Bible?
Mormons do not believe that Jesus Christ is God and God is in Three Persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit).
This shows why so many Mormons oppose Donald Trump. Look at Mitt Romney, who is a Mormon. Mormon Romney rather have Hillary Clinton as US President than Donald Trump. Yesterday, he attacked Trump, trying to hand-deliver Clinton victory. See this video:
Mitt Romney is a Mormon and Mormons are not Christians. Thus, it is not surprising that Mormon Romney does not want Donald Trump, who is a Christian, becomes US President.
Why is Romney so eager to attack the official Republican nominee for US President? He wants Hillary Clinton to win, because as a Mormon, he thinks that Clinton will be better for Mormons than the Bible-believing Trump.
Cultic groups like Mormons do not like the Holy Bible, which says that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation. Mormons do not follow the Holy Bible. That is why they have the Book of Mormon, which true Christians reject.
If the Vatican does not follow the Bible and oppose homosexuality and call for arrest of homosexuals using tax dollars, then God can punish the Vatican and the city of Rome in any way He sees fit.
Remember, God destroyed the Chosen Nation of Israel by using Babylonians, who were Pagans and opposed to worship of Yahweh. That is why the very first thing that the Babylonians did was to destroy the Jerusalem Temple after desecrating it.
Yet, the Bible says that it was God of the Bible Himself who increased the power of the Babylonians in order to punish Israel for not obeying God’s Word.
Thus, by same logic of the Bible, yes, God can increase the power of ISIS in order to punish the Vatican and the city of Rome (where the Vatican is) if the Vatican does not openly and aggressively condemn homosexuality and call for the arrest of homosexuals in every country by using the nation’s tax dollars.
Read the Bible to see how God operates in history.
21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’
The primary purpose of a prophet is declare God’s impending punishment of a people if the people do not repent and turn back to God.
Isaiah in the Old Testament was a prophet. Read through the Book of Isaiah and see what Isaiah the Prophet said.
As the video above shows, many Christians believe that prophecies of Isaiah keeps repeating itself in human history in cyclic ways (cycles) until the coming of Jesus Christ.
In other words, just as the prophecy of Isaiah against Damascus was fulfilled in the days of Isaiah, the same prophecy is fulfilled in the New Testament era and in the modern era. It keeps being fulfilled.
In the same way, Isaiah’s prophecies against Israel and the Jewish people keeps being fulfilled, again and again, in history, in cyclic way.
That is why Jerusalem was completely destroyed in the Old Testament. That is why Jerusalem was completely destroyed in the New Testament (70 AD). That is why the prophecy of Isaiah will be fulfilled and Jerusalem will be completely destroyed again in the modern times. Prophecies of the Old Testament keeps being fulfilled in cyclic forms.
Most Christians agree that this is true.
Prophecies of the Old Testament will be fulfilled in the modern era as well.
Prophet’s primary role is to declare the impending destruction that God will bring about as a judgment for not following the Word of God, generally as nations.
When Israel went away from the Word of God as a nation (not only as individuals!), God sent prophets to judge the nation as a whole, based on the direction of the leadership / national laws that went against God’s Law.
Laws of nations / policies of the politicians is the reason why God sends prophets against nations to declare God’s impending justice against that nation.
Just read the prophecies of Isaiah and Jeremiah.
Judgment is of nations for nation’s policies and laws that go against God’s Word.
Prophet’s primary role is the last warning in God’s justice system, before God actually carries out God’s declared punishment.
It is the very last chance to repent and be right with God as a nation, before God fulfills His promise (declared, impending justice of God).
Yes, history is “His Story”, meaning that God guides history.
This is clear when you read any history. One history in particular, the history of the English Reformation, shows that God guided history to bring the Reformation to England. Without the English Reformation, there would not have been Puritans. Without Puritans, there would not have been Plymouth or Massachusetts Bay Colony. In fact, the United States of America would not have been predominantly Protestant Christian.
How did English Reformation happen? It was not a pure road, like in Germany, where Martin Luther, following the Holy Bible, sacrificed himself to bring the German Reformation. But sometimes, God uses the things of this world to effectuate God’s Will.
The TV Show, “The Tutors”, illustrates this, as it accounts the events before, during, and after the English Reformation. (Warning: The program is Rated R).
God works in mysterious ways in history to bring about God’s Will. God’s ways are not man’s ways….
Obviously, Christians must do all they can to follow the Bible and act according to the Bible. But Christians must recognize that God sometimes uses “unconventional” means to bring about what God wants. History, as well as the Holy Bible, is proof of this.
No one will be surprised if terrorism intensifies in 2016 as the result of de-stabilization of the Middle East, which has taken a notch higher as the result of Saudi Arabia killing political dissidents. History has shown that killing political dissidents does not end well.
Look at the presidents who came from the “political dissidents”:
President Haclav Havel of the Czech Republic
President Kim Dae-Jung of South Korea
The world sees that Saudi Arabia is no different from ISIS in that they are both willing to kill people who disagree with them.
There is no freedom of ideas in Saudi Arabia.
First Amendment of the United States Constitution guarantees the freedom of speech and freedom of ideas.
Oppression is a bad thing. Saudi Arabia is oppressing their minorities for political reasons, and the United States Senate is supporting Saudi Arabia’s oppression of minorities for political gain, unfortunately.
But the United States government is going in the same direction of Saudi Arabia. Soon, the US government will use the police and FBI to arrest America’s Bible-centered Christians who oppose homosexuality and gay marriage. America’s political dissidents (America’s Bible-following Christians) will be imprisoned and may even be executed, like in Saudi Arabia.
The fact that the United States Senate supports Saudi Arabia executing political dissidents is an attack on the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. Washington DC establishment is becoming a tyrant, just like Saudi Arabia. And in the United States, anti-homosexuality Christians will be targeted by the FBI and police officers because of United States laws that stand against the Bible and Bible Christianity.
The United States government want to take guns away, so that they can persecute Christians in America without resistance.
Remember, St. Peter carried a “gun” (sword in his age). He carried a weapon without government permission to defend himself and Jesus Christ. You don’t carry a sword to cut vegetables. Thus, St. Peter set the example for all Christians to carry guns without government permission to defend the church (Christianity) and the family.
The United States government wants to take guns away from America’s Christians for one reason and one reason only. It is a prelude to official US government persecution of America’s Christians and imprisonment of America’s Christians who oppose gay marriage laws and homosexuality.
But there is another major problem.
ISIS or other Islamic terrorists can detonate nuclear bombs in Washington DC or New York City. The United States of America as a country and government can cease to exist. Then, America will be vulnerable to Islamic attack or socialist threat from China, Venezuela, or Russia.
There could be ungodly control of United States of America and the only way to defend the Christian faith or family may be via using guns, such as assault rifles.
See the scenario played out on TV in the show “Revolution”:
Although the scenario of the TV show is “Black Out”, the results could be similar. Chaos and ubiquitous violence.
Only Christians who prepared with Assault Rifles and thousands of rounds of bullets may be able to protect their families, in the event of a nuclear attack by Islamic Terrorists who are exponentially multiplying by the day.
The United States government may want to take your gun away for their own agenda. The United States government may not think that they will disappear via a nuclear terrorist attack by Muslim Terrorists (what they call, “Radical Islam”), but only God knows the future.
The Holy Bible is emphatic about preparation.
Christians who prepare for the future with prayer will survive it. God helps those who help themselves by following the Bible.
Read the Book of Judges, the Book of Joshua, the Book of Revelations for inspiration.
Gun control measures will hurt America’s Christians in ways that cannot be imagined at the current time.
The video below provides one interpretation of the Book of Revelations and the War of Armageddon.
This interpretation can be right, wrong, or partly right. But what is clear in that the Book of Revelations will be fulfilled again and again.
Only God knows the true interpretation.
In other words, it may be that the above video interpretation of Revelations is completely wrong and that it is about what will happen with Saudi Arabia, ISIS, USA, UK, and what is to come…
So, is the white horse representing good or evil?
Only God knows.
Who will conquer whom?
Only God knows.
What is important for you and your family is to acquire Assault Rifles and gain training in the use of them and become experts at it. Join Army Reserves or enlist in the US Army. Gain professional training, which will be necessary in the future.
God blesses those who prepare with a sober spirit and a humble heart before the Holy Trinity.
The Book of Revelations will come true. You just don’t know how.
Well, let’s look at the news and see what is happening.
Official calls for violence against police officers are called for by elected officials in the United States:
Obviously, the Holy Trinity will take away peace from every neighborhood in the United States, if homosexuality is not illegalized in the United States by national, federal law, and homosexuals are actively arrested. The Holy Bible is clear that homosexuality is a crime against God and crime against nature.
There are beginnings of armed rebellion against the federal US government:
Many American citizens who were formerly law-abiding are now rising up against US federal government and are willing to do so with armed rebellion.
Federal agents chose to estand down, like in the French Revolution. In many revolutions in history, federal forces defied orders to join the protesters. Some call this, “The Spirit of the Age”.
United States federal government is gearing to arrest anti-homosexuality Christian pastors and Christian evangelists….
Could there be underground armed militia forming in all 50 states to counter that US federal government move?
The Middle East is plunging into chaos and ISIS is growing in power inside US ally nations, like Saudi Arabia and UAE, so much so that Saudi Arabia is actually killing political dissidents:
Will Saudi Arabia’s royal family fall, like in the French Revolution, as ordinary, poor people rise up against billionaire royalty who do not share their wealth with poor Saudi Arabia citizens, who live in abject poverty?
Are America’s Republicans and Democrats serious about trusting any Muslims?
ISIS control may extend to Saudi Arabia and UAE, if the royalty are killed by the poor people in these countries, like in the French Revolution.
Religion always unite peoples over politics. After that, poverty experience unites people against the royalty. That’s history.
Many of America’s poor Christians have become very angry with the US federal government (and the Republican Party and the Democratic Party), because they blame the federal government for taking away their middle class status and making them poor.
Poor American Christians feel that now the US federal government is being a tyrant and taking their Bible away, too.
The Holy Bible clearly considers homosexuality as a crime against God and a crime against nature. But wealthy politicians and journalists are working together to oppress them and take their true religion away. Poor American Christians (who are the majority in all 50 states) feel deeply insulted by superiority tone taken by wealthy politicians and journalists, because they can read the Bible and know what it says. The Holy Bible considers homosexuality as a very serious crime that is far more evil than murder or theft.
