If you've been watching the news and shit, you will see that there is a lot of turmoil and strife going on in the world right now. I think with the Middle East (ME) all in an uproar, and our own government seemingly supporting these radical assholes, I truly believe that the end is near.
Why you ask? Look around. I used to think that people would never turn their back on religion, but more and more people criticize Christians, saying that those people are stupid for their beliefs, though Muslims seem to be treated as if they are the greatest things since sliced bread. In today's world, you're stupid or ignorant for not believing in God and I believe that those types of people will getting it in the end. Maybe shit is just to real that they just want to not believe because it makes life a bit easier for them.
In Revelations, it says that Christians would be persecuted for their beliefs and that is on point in today's world. I'm not a religious person, per se, but I believe in God, Jesus, and the evil forces that fight us in our daily lives. I grew up Assembly of God and is the reason why I turned my back on my faith for a good while, while the entire time I was being shown that there is something truly awesome in existence, but didn't want to believe because of how I saw things growing up. Don't get me wrong I do have my questions, but I do believe and no I'm not baptized either. In the bible Jesus says that all I have to do is believe in him and ask for forgiveness. Jesus is the one who has the ability to keep things simple, on the other hand man has made things more complicated.
Getting back as to why I think the end is near is because with things going they way they are, our own government claiming publicly that we are not a God fearing nation, really should hit home to the believer and non-believer alike. I never thought that Christians would be put to death because of their beliefs, but look at what's going on around the world. That very same thing is happening around the world, but people believe that nothing like that would ever happen in the US. People also thought that the US would never be attacked again and we were Dec 1941 (Pearl Harbor) 1993 (WTC bombing first attempt) and on 9/11. I hope it doesn't happen here, but with the seemingly growing hatred towards Christians (our own Pres had a few words about Christians and it wasn't good claiming that they are ignorant and hold on to their religion and guns and that basically stupid people do that), more hostile acts against Christians in this country I believe are going to rise unless we do something about it now. The powers to be seem to be working overtime to maintain their power and the people are getting really upset with them currently...remember Cantor got removed from office.
It's not going to be easy to get back to the way we started, but it is a winnable fight. I know that things look dire right now, but we can and will succeed. We need to get more and more God fearing people in office and vote those power hungry politicians out of office soon. This is an election year for Congress and we need to act hard and swiftly .
My prayers go out to McDaniel who's fighting the republican wing of the Democratic party in his state of Mississippi. Those power hungry politicians have reduced their tactics to what our enemy uses against us, but they use it on their own people. I don't know who is more corrupt, Dems or Republicans because at least you know what you're getting with a Democrat. A Republican on the other hand is like a snake in the grass trying to maintain his dominance on the land he travels. Lets vote these people out and get those Tea Party candidates in office. They are the ones who truly reflect our values and beliefs.
