It’s December. If you believe the Mayan Calendar, then we have about 21 days of life as we know it left. I personally believe the Bible over the Mayan calendar, so I don’t believe in all that; however, I do believe that other people believe it. That could affect things in the next few weeks.That being
said, Jesus said that we will not know the day nor the hour when he comes
(Matthew 24:36), so I can feel pretty confident that the Rapture will not be
this December 21st. Perhaps the 20th or the 22nd, but not the 21st.
Over the last week, I’ve noticed a disturbing trend: people imposing
god-like attributes to President Barack Obama. Like I mentioned in today’s blog post, “Humans Working their Way to ‘Godhood’”, only God is God, and no human will ever be; however, throughout
history, some people have promoted their leaders to god-status. This happened with Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, and many of the pharaohs. Jaime Foxx called Obama “Lord and Savior” and the crowd cheered. A painting (which was actually created in 2008) depicting Obama with a crown of thorns on his head, in a pose resembling Jesus’s crucifixion, made headlines this week as well. I has to make me wonder where we’re actually headed here. I’ve never seen anything
like this before with any president in my lifetime (or read about it in American history books).
Russians Prepare for Doomsday
I haven’t seen too many people in the US freaking out because the end
of the Mayan calendar is near (perhaps that will come in another week; many
Americans seem to be short-sighted), but the Russians
are getting ready for the world to occur.
Some are stocking up on food; others are moving out of the city
entirely, thinking that the country will be a safer place in the event of the
end of the world. Some Russian travel
agents are offering tours to Heaven or to Hell.
They offer a money-back guarantee if they actually don’t get there.
Tickets to Hell cost more than tickets to Heaven. They figure that Hell would be “more fun”
than Heaven. That seems to be a mindset
that a lot of people have, but believe me, Hell is not going to be any fun at
all. Nobody will be having a good time
there, and you won’t be able to see your friends.
California Hit with Heavy Storms
This weekend, California
is expected to be hit by their third storm in a row. Already, downed trees have snarled traffic in
Los Angeles, and thousands of people were without power for a while. Now, with the ground already saturated with
water, the third storm is expected to be the most damaging. A few rivers are expected to overflow its
banks. Many areas are under flash flood
warnings as well.
UN Votes to Grant Palestinians
On Thursday, the world
voted to grant Palestine status as a non-member observer state in the United
Nations . The US, Canada, Israel,
and six other countries were the only countries to vote against the
measure. This may result in the world
turning against Israel even more than it has before, because now the country,
when it moves to defend itself against attacks by Hamas, can be seen as
aggressive actions against another state.
The Bible tells us of a time when the entire world will turn against
Israel, and even against God himself.
The entire world will turn against Israel during the battle of
Armageddon, which will occur at the very end of the tribulation, where Jesus
himself will come and fight the battle for everyone else. However, there is an event that will happen
even before that. Ezekiel 38 and 39
speaks of a battle where several countries from Europe, the Middle East, and
Africa will fight against Israel: this may be a part of the upcoming World
Mohammad Morsi Takes Over as
Dictator of Egypt
Egypt is working on a constitution; in the meantime, the president of
Egypt, Mohammad Morsi, has decided to take over as leader of the country, for
now. He says that he won’t
be just another dictator, and his power takeover is only “temporary”. Mmm hmmm.
Coming soon to the US? Give it a
few more years.
