Commentary By: Gordon King
The end times will bring with it chaos and confusion. The Old Testament speaks of what God will do for the nation of Israel after coming into their promised land.
“But the LORD your God will deliver them before you, and will throw them into great confusion until they are destroyed.”
Sounds familiar doesn’t it, as if this is happening now? Just look at the Middle East, with all of the chaos and confusion going on daily.
Who is actually fighting who, and who is supporting who? I thought that the Kurds were fighting the Islamic State, and Turkey was supporting them? Now it seems that the Kurds have attacked Turkey and Turkey is responding by attacking the Kurds! What?! Then I read that the Syrian rebels are supporting Turkey, but the Islamic State is also on the side of the Syrian rebels. So does that mean Turkey is also supporting the Islamic State?!
President Obama has just set up airbases in Turkey in order to bomb the Islamic State, but, is he also supporting them? Who is actually fighting who, and who supports who? It seems as though they are all destroying each other. The world has gone mad, the confusion and chaos is at an all time high, and no one really knows what to do.
The P5+1 powers have just signed an agreement with Iran for a “nuclear deal”. What a farce that is, talk about confusion! These world powers actually believe that they can trust Iran, even though Iran continues to say that they will annihilate Israel and the Jews, even though they say, in no uncertain terms, that they will not comply with international inspections! Unbelievable, yet true.
The world in its ultimate wisdom is heading to its own demise, of its own making. Turning away from God in rebellion, instead replacing what is righteous and true with lies, deception, and false idols.
The world is under the power of the evil one, Satan.
1 John 5:19
“We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.“
Satan, the father of all lies. His is to seek, kill, and destroy! The world is blind, they cannot see the truth, and shall fall victim into eternal destruction. Their only hope is through salvation by the blood of Jesus Christ, yet this can only be done if they first see what the truth really is.
Confusion and chaos rule the world. What once seemed to make sense is now fraught with unexplainable mysteries and twisted truths. The world is on a collision course with disaster.
The time is now to see the truth, to listen to what God is saying. Open your ears and soften your heart. Take heed to what the Lord is saying. Time is short and the confusion will get worse. The wise will hear, but the fool will say in his heart: “Where is your God now? He doesn’t exist!”
Father in heaven, hear my prayers. I pray that you fill the world with your wisdom and knowledge. Open the eyes of the blind, and soften their hearts. Give us all Your truth and understanding. Lead the lost to salvation, and bring as many as will come, into Your loving arms. In Jesus name I pray, Amen
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
