With the recent earthquake in Chile so soon after the one in Haiti, do you find yourself wondering where and when the next one will occur? The USA has offered to help, but how many more world disasters can we afford? I don't believe we can afford any as America is broke...financially bankrupt...operating in the red...belly-up, flat-ass, penniless! If you take time to think about it, we are facing a Spring filled with home-grown disasters of its own such as flooding, hurricanes, tornadoes, and drought. Add to that our seemingly impossible-to-solve health care problems and you begin to see just the frosting on the cake. Our national debt is higher than ever in history, we have the longest running war in history (and most expensive), and we have a pretty healthy number of poor and uneducated citizens that deserve more than they are getting. When is enough, enough? When do we say, "Hey, we're broke. Fix it on your own." I know it sounds heartless, but our economy will falter and collapse soon if we continue to spend without any ability to recover or recoup our losses.
Now, add to all that the Biblical aspect of the End Times Prophecy and you begin to have a pretty dismal picture of the future...if you are not a Christian that is. True believers in the resurrection of Christ by His death on the Cross at Calvary have the luxury of knowing that they are already saved. But, that salvation is not without restrictions and responsibilities, as some New Age/New Spirituality believers would have you thinking. What are you, as a Christian, going to do when you are told to take the Mark or die? VeriChips are being implanted into humans worldwide already and, just as the Bible predicted, they are being placed in the right hand or forehead (best areas for scanning). What are you going to do when they say you have to get a chip implanted in order to drive your car and get a license or in order to buy anything at all? It's already in the works. 2010 marks the date that mandatory state licensing find a new method of licensing that will be safer and less easy to duplicate or forge. VeriChip is leading the field in security systems for humans and is being used in offices, government buildings, and other places worldwide where persons are implanted with the chip to gain access to secure sites. Granted, this is not "The Mark of the Beast" that the bible warns us about...but, it is a step closer. Is it a step you are willing to take? Is it a step a Christian should accept? Are there grounds for refusal on terms of one's beliefs? When it happens...and it will...I believe the answer to all those questions will be an adamant "NO!
I'll be posting more on this subject in the very near future so stay tuned to this page or my Facebook Advanced Link.
Yours in Christ, friendship, and LOVE...
