“A man with an experience is never at the mercy of a man with an argument” – Anonymous
Whatever your world view is will pretty much determine the very course of your life. If, for instance, you have a completely secular world view, science and the generally accepted view of the day will guide your life completely. People with a Christian view have shifted their view of the world to include God as creator, guide and redeemer.
The difference is enormous. More than night and day, the difference is the balance between life and death.
I have spent my lifetime studying and teaching on the prophetic aspect of scripture. Unknown to many, including some Christians is the fact that there are many kinds of prophecy. From the ‘Protevangelium,’ the first prophecy in the bible (Gen 3: 15) to the ‘Messianic’ (first coming of Christ) the bible then moves on to include premillennial prophecies (second coming of Christ) and pre, mid and post exilic prophecies (the history of Israel before, during and after their exile.)
Much more than simply warning nations and men in general of their future, the most fundamental purpose of prophecy is to help man determine his place in time. Prophecy is largely pre-written history and originates in the heart of One to whom the past, present and future are fully known to the last detail.
Modern man has concluded, with the help of science that we are traveling through a continuum of space and time. The biblical view agrees with only half of that conclusion. We think we are set to travel the vast distances of space in search of our future, the bible says nay, but we are assigned to this temporary world for only a limited time for each individual (a lifetime) and only a few millennia for civilization collectively.
“For he doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men. To crush under his feet all the prisoners of the earth” (La 3: 33, 34)
The bible fully agrees that man is traveling through time, God has neither called us to burst into space, nor does he require it. The promise of scripture is that at the second coming of Christ, all the celestial creatures of God will convene upon the earth along with God. Another single millennium will occur after which we will indeed leave this earth for another one, also of God’s making where eternity will begin – and never end.
Accordingly, when Christ proclaimed that heaven and earth would pass away, but those that did the will of God would abide forever it may have seemed that he was momentarily out of his mind. Where will we abide if it is all taken away? That question is answered fully in the book of Revelation, a book filled with prophecy. It says God himself makes a new world for the redeemed; in fact it is already built.
“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.” (Rev 21: 1 – 3)
God brings it to us; we needn’t force a few people into prolonged sleep stasis and hurl them into the endless darkness of space to find it.
Oddly, the promise of God is that we will always, perpetually be traveling through time. Although, in the future time will have no adverse effect (aging) on man. We will not be gallivanting throughout the heavenly bodies for all eternity looking for some new thing.
Just as bloodletting, phrenology, canals on Mars and dozens of other scientific theorems have come and gone the idea of interstellar space travel will one day take its place in the annuls of wishful thinking. We are travelling through time, but we are fixed in space.
Whether this is fully comprehended or if it seems offensive to those who think space travel is a foregone is of little consequence. There are many who don’t feel the need to apologize for not believing that traveling the distance to the moon; a total of miles some frequent fliers will make in their lifetime and bringing back a few rocks is actually a – “giant leap for mankind.”
In addition to the wild eyed fiction of Star Trek, Star Wars and a myriad of other science fiction hyperbole, the NASA nymphs are numbed by nonsense about non-accountability. Simply put, if man’s future is in endless space then why worry about a judgment at the end of time. The error is complete, look to space and forget time – a deadly decision by any means.
Pseudoscience, philosophic postulates and gross error – Three stings and you’re out
Along with prophecy I have endeavored to study the theory of evolution and the every aspect of man’s attempt to negotiate the vastness of space. Long ago I saw that both the evolutionary model and the idea of inter-stellar space travel serve to knock out accountability to God. In short, if we did not come from God and we are not going to God then there is no need to answer to God.
This generation is burdened with the politically correct indoctrination of those who are forcing their world view on everyone. Dismissing God as creator and scoffing at the idea of accountability to God at the end of life as we know it is the goal, the mantra and the pure willful indoctrination of the secularists of this generation.
Perhaps the only thing more twisted than the idea of science dismissing God by denying our origins and our destination is the ominous fact that it will also be science that pulls the unsuspecting to their own doom in-between those two errors.
The next big sting from politically fueled scientific error will be the corralling of all mankind into an economic system that requires that every person on earth be subjected to either an RFID implant or an electronic tattoo that assures they are in the computerized system that tracks all commerce, health issues and whereabouts for every man, women and child on the planet. The Bible calls it the ‘mark of the beast.’ (Rev 19: 20)
What will seem like a perfectly innocent need to streamline our personal lives and provide both ease and security for all, will become the means by which the final earthly ruler (anti-Christ) of mankind will monitor our allegiance to him.
Doubting the idea that nations will come to the place where everyone would submit to a universal system that knows everything about them down to their very state of health is no longer an option, it is a luxury of days gone by. The refusal to believe that something like this could happen in a country like freedom loving America has been dispelled by a single word –ObamaCare!
Refusing the mark will only be tolerated at the very inception of the system, but will soon give way to becoming mandatory. When he is seated with full authority, those who refuse the mark will at first be harassed and labeled, later they will be jailed and in a very short time they will just simply be – eliminated. Thanks to science and our dependency on it; we will be herded to our final fate like so many sheep to the slaughter.
Didn’t come from God, not going to God and herded by Satan’s earthly representative in the interim – three stings and you’re out!
Those who get out of the game cannot be struck out or stung to death. My advice is forthwith; stop arguing with prophecy and place your life into the hands of the living God. Switch games, switch kingdoms and preserve your own soul. To wit:
“And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his MARK upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.” (Rev 20: 4)
