Commentary By: Gordon King
Tensions in the world are rising very quickly, civil unrest is growing rapidly, military powers continue to threaten each other with unabashed statements, and the hope of world peace is diminishing rapidly. What is being played out on the world scene is destined to happen according to bible prophecy.
The world believes that it can achieve world peace, that the world can live in harmony if we only make the right choices, if we only live together as one people, under one nation, under one rule of law. The Muslims believe that this will only be obtained through a world-wide Caliphate under Sharia Law, while the rest of the world believes that it can only be obtained through a One World Government controlled by a One World Leader as well, but what they don’t know is that this One World Leader is the Antichrist!
This is just how close we are to the beginning of the Tribulation Period. When the world desperately seeks answers to its mounting problems, problems which seem insurmountable! This is the cue for the Antichrist to step in and come to power, a man with great charisma and charm, a man who seems to have all of the answers to the world’s ills, a man who will have a plan for world peace!
The world will be in such desperation that it will welcome in the Antichrist with open arms! It will not only welcome him in but honor, praise and even worship him as God! Do you think that I am making this up? It is written in the pages of the bible!
The world is deceived into believing many lies, and one of the greatest lies of all is that this man, the Antichrist, will be their Savior! There is only one Savior of this world and His name is Jesus Christ!
The answer to the world problems is not a One World Government or a One World Ruler under the guise of the Antichrist, but to repent and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior! The world needs to repent, it needs to see the error of its ways, it needs not the Antichrist but Jesus Christ!
There is coming a One World Ruler who will rule this world with an iron rod, a ruler who will bring in true peace, and His name is Jesus Christ! The Antichrist is an imposter, a counterfeit, a thief! He copies what Jesus Christ does and twists them to his own demise. He claims to have the answers, he claims to be able to bring world peace, and he claims to be God (2 Thessalonians 2:4)!
There is only one way to world peace, Jesus Christ, and He’s coming soon! One day soon we will have world peace, peace like we have never known before, but it will not come from the world or from within the world, but from heaven up above. It will be a peace like none other, and it will last for eternity!
Isn’t it sort of funny how we keep hearing about peace and safety in the world?! How these two words seem to just keep coming up by world leaders? It isn’t by chance my friends, no, it’s by divine appointment! These are signs, signs of the closeness of Christ’s return. And what we see happening in the world today are also precursors as to what is coming upon the world during the Tribulation Period, only it will be much, much worse!
Those who worship Satan believe that he will be victorious, but we know the truth, we know what will happen in the end, Satan is cast into the lake of fire forever! The created is not better than the Creator, nor is Satan better than Jesus Christ, he is only a creation of God not a god himself.
Those of us who belong to Christ are already victorious, we have already won, ours is salvation and eternal life with God forever! Our peace is not of this world but from Christ, for He is the Prince of Peace!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
