GOD, [ IS ] IN CONTROL.
“Assyria ( Syria ) Is one of many end game players…….”
The whole world is a stage, when it comes to Bible Prophecy playing out.
The entire world will take a position in this end game stratagem, whether any of us agree on each countries, or every individual’s position or stance on what should or should not be taking place.
“GOD IS IN CONTROL.” It’s real easy to lose sight of this utter FACT.
Not one of us knows the real reason, or any ( real ) facts concerning world upheaval or political positioning, despite our attempts to be ‘’connected’’ by being informed. i.e. ‘’ the news...’’
What GOD does, what GOD allows, is done RIGHTEOUSLY. By way of HIS decisions, not ours.
Satan is an instrument through which GOD may communicate evil. The devil is not off running amuck doing as he pleases. On the contrary, he ‘’does’’ what he is allowed, which means ~
(satan’s) actions are “ FATHER FILTERED ” They have to go through GOD, first.
Yes, there will be a point when satan is un-hooked from his proverbial leash & set loose on the world, full strength. ( whoa ). But that has not happened yet.
What goes on in the world scene politically, militarily, whether we understand it or not, whether we agree with it or not ~ GOD is in CONTROL. So many world events take place on an ever changing landscape, and [we] try ( and ) think we are staying abreast of it all via 24-hour a day news outlets. “News” This is an acronym you know? North. East. West. South. Aka, news.
Do we receive actual, verifiable, truthful accountings of the news? Sorry, but NO, we don’t.
It, ( the news ) is best served as a sort of a COMPASS for us all to use.
Look at the compass, ( the news ), then open up, and study your BIBLE, as it relates to events
Current, and NOW, you will begin to form a more accurate accounting of what is happening in the world today. Do we trust GOD? I do. Whatever HE has ordained, WILL HAPPEN. Period.
We as believers should be paying attention to world events, as they really will shape our future moves while we are here. BUT, bear in mind who is REALLY in control. GOD is.
Remember what JESUS said to his disciples…?
And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
4And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
5For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
6And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
10And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
11And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
15When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
16Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
17Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
18Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
19And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
20But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
21For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
23Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25Behold, I have told you before.
26Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
27For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
28For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
29Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
30And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
32Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
33So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
35Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
36But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
45Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
47Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
48But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
49And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
50The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
( Matthew 24 ~ )
SO, in short -- Do not be overly alarmed at the sorts ow news we encounter
As it pertains to the world. Instead, TRUST GOD. Isn’t that what we are supposed to be doing? TRUSTING IN, and BELIEVING ON, GOD ALMIGHTY?
HE’S THE BOSS, APPLESAUCE !
HE is in charge. We as ((believers)) are to show HIM that we are CONFIDENT IN HIS JUDGEMENTS. If we don’t understand a particular judgement. Pray on it, if it is in fact bothering you. Despite the outcome, rest assured it was done in ALL RIGHTEOUSNESS, by GOD.
HE RULES. HE Judges with perfect clarity… Righteously. Perfectly. Use you Bible. ( which is yet another acronym of sorts! )
Use it ! These WORDS, given to us by [our] Heavenly FATHER are OUR guidelines to get us through this ‘’fallen world’’ and to help guide us home to a better tomorrow, which IS speaking of ETERNITY, FUTURE !
Loving words, Loving guidelines for us, from, HIM !
2 Kings 19:25
Hast thou not heard long ago how I have done it, and of ancient times that I have formed it? now have I brought it to pass, that thou shouldest be to lay waste fenced cities into ruinous heaps.
My wife & I, have not watched the news on network t.v.or cable, or sattelite,
(all the same mess) for close to 7 years now. (maybe a little longer even)
People say to us all the time, ‘’how do you stay abreast to what is current)??
The Bible. That’s my answer everytime, EVERYTIME.
The ‘’world’’ likes to change the names and places in which it operates.
Politically, militarily, etc. This is done, by and large, to confuse you & I.
“That” is satan. Satan cannot change what GOD has ordained. He tries…
So the best attempts by satan, become whispered suggestions, distractions, and the likes… Case in point, changing the names of operation points.
Case in point: Syria. Used to be known in the world as, “ASSYRIA” and still is in the Bible. Pay attention to all of these names that are mentioned in the Bible. They are there for a reason !! GOD does NOT merely put words in here or there for the use of ‘’filler’’ or just to make a dramatic point.
Every single word stated, is there by delberate design, by GOD. So, pay attention to them. Pay attenyion to details… Pay attention to flag colors for instance. They mean more than you may realize, and are key to pointing out who all has a hand in all of these end time events. STUDY ! STUDY ! STUDY !
1 John 2:15
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.
Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?
The man of perdition, or the false prophet.. Where will he come from?
Before you blurt out the pope, consider that Assyria ( Syria ) may very well be, more important as far as that ‘’man’’ ~ and where he comes from, or is associated with.
2 Kings 19:35
“And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the LORD went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.”
The entire point is this.. Stay focused on THE LORD, GOD.
Everything will play out, according to HIS plan.
GOD Bless all.
