“I just want to do something!”

This is such a common expression and this week millions of people are looking at world events and saying this.

Yet standing in solidarity with the people of Ukraine safe in a European capital does not seem enough for so many. Can the issues of countries really be resolved by individual action? Surprisingly YES!.

Want can I do?

First, find out what is really happening to this world! We can only do something with real meaning if we understand the real issues and solutions.

The media is driven by those with opinions, those who want to justify their approach to the problem and the resolution.

Is the answer to take up arms and fight in the name of freedom? That has always been a futile gesture because we have the continuous cycle of poor decision-making by governments driven by greed, or fear.

So is it an excuse to do nothing? Because while good people or the majority do nothing bad things happen!

Advocacy for something Different

The Bible points to God’s Kingdom as the solution for us all, no artificial lines on the ground or walls and fences, nothing to separate individuals ideologically, culturally or spiritually. Why? because the battle is not ours to fight. It is with God’s forces against human governments.

Does God have the right to impose his will on us? Well for 2000 years Christians have prayed Let your kingdom come let your will be done ON EARTH as it is in heaven.

The bible describes one war in heaven, it was short and decisive (Revelation 12) God’s enemy – someone who chose to oppose God’s leadership was ousted from heaven, soon the decisive battle on earth will be fought, the governments have already begun to line up against God’s Kingdom and soon they will take a stand in opposition to his King.

The End Game

The art of Chess is to understand what you really control and where the weaknesses of your opponent are exposed. Satan, the governments of the world are involved in playing the next move not realising the match is already lost.

So the Bible has predicted the next moves in this complex period, the power play by Satan and his forces failed to see that the defence he attacks is not weak but strong, it conceals the greatest offence in Universal history.

It is time to open your eyes as the spectator and realise that our only option is to wait for the End Game, it will come very quickly, like playing against my father when he would say 3 move checkmate and it was too late for me to adjust.

Look for the End Game, understand there are sides to choose and decide that you are going to back the winner.

There aren’t any links on this post because those who read it need to find their way.

I am a writer, a Christian and I serve with the knowledge that God’s Kingdom is the real salvation and right now support those suffering but remain neutral, human politics leads to failure.

Choose Life and study the bible.

Who are domestic terrorists?

Not so many years ago terrorism was seen as one ideology trying to push a message through the ultimate sacrifice of lives on both sides. Now we have the label “domestic terrorist” and the majority of countries already have legislation that can suppress messages that criticise or contradict the ruling state.

Anti-terror legislation appears as Patriotic, or civil order but who is affected or can be affected by the label?

Those with a Faith?

Notice the popular meaning of sedition

“conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state or monarch.” In Russia and recently in France religious people have been labelled as seditionaries. Why? because they advocate God’s Kingdom, demonstrate a reluctance to engage with the state.

Here are couple of things that are seditionary:

  • Praying and living in harmony to the expression “Let Your Kingdom Come”
  • Following the bible tenet “We obey God as Ruler rather than men”
  • Remaining neutral – so not voting, enlisting in the military and working towards supporting Theocrasy

What are the seditionaries guilty of:

  • They pay taxes,
  • Few commit crimes
  • Support for neighbours
  • Seek peace and promote the love of the Christ

These peace-loving Christian groups are described as “passive terrorists” these present no threat of violence. They are the core of law-abiding societies.

The Example

Pilate announced to the religious and political leaders gathered to call for the life of a man 2,000 years: “I find no crime in this man.” the response from those in control responded in Matthew 27: “22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.”

Another example who copied Jesus is recorded in Acts 7 and how did the rulers respond in verse “57 At this they cried out at the top of their voices and put their hands over their ears and rushed at him all together.

Should we be surpised?

Jesus words quoted in Luke 21: 12 “But before all these things happen, people will lay their hands on you and persecute you, handing you over to the synagogues and prisons. You will be brought before kings and governors for the sake of my name.13 It will result in your giving a witness.”

This is an expression used in the words that prophised the last days and what it is like to live through the most challenging and exciting time in our history. Luke 21: 16 “Moreover, you will be handed over even by parents and brothers and relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death,17 and you will be hated by all people because of my name.

Thousands over the years have sacrificed their lives for the reality of the Kingdom Christians pray for – God’s Kingdom the only hope of restoration. Do we need to take up arms against a government or authorities? – NEVER!!!

Human governments will take a stand against the greatest government as stated in Psalm and when they do it will be quick and effective as Daniel saw in his vision recorded at Daniel 2: 44.

The question really is where are we in this battle of words now? and what are we prepared to sacrifice when the rhetoric ends and religious organisations have no place, are we going to be in the silent majority or are we already showing that we advocate God’s Kingdom, Jesus Rulership and the restoration of Theocrasy?

In the words of Joshua the judge in Israel Joshua 24: 14 “Therefore, fear Jehovah and serve him with integrity and faithfulness, and remove the gods that your forefathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt, and serve Jehovah.15 Now if it seems bad to you to serve Jehovah, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve, whether the gods that your forefathers served on the other side of the River or the gods of the Amʹor·ites in whose land you are dwelling. But as for me and my household, we will serve Jehovah.”

Remember when Jesus stood before the people and Pilate offered to release him the people chose a known seditionary and murderer so do not be surprised by the reaction of those around you and those who hold power now when they perceive they are performing good work.

Only be courageous and very strong, stand still and see the salvation of God through Jesus Christ because the battle is not ours we do not need to fight governments have chosen to wage war with God.

So being labelled as a seditionary for Christian values is to follow in the steps of the Master Jesus Christ.

The end of all suffering

ET 2

The Bible promises that the end of all suffering will come through Gods Heavenly Kingdom – or Government. It will remove sorrow, sickness and death from humankind this is stated clearly at Revelation 21: 4; “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”

  • When will this happen?
  • How much longer must we wait?

When on earth Jesus explained when the Kingdom was coming, and how we would know. He presented a list of signs we need to identify as we approach a period the bible calls “the last days

The “sign” is detailed in Matthew 24: 7, begins with War on a large scale (in one place after another). There have always been wars reported in history, so this series of wars has to be different to everything that has gone before. In 1914 the whole world was described as joining the “Great War” (the war to end all wars)! Sadly once WW1 finished humanity careered towards WW2 and another Global Conflict, the 20th century was literally a period of one conflict after another. The 21st Century has continued along the same theme.

What next in “the sign”? Food shortages and famine, on a scale never before reported or understood. Almost 1 billion people are affected by famine and malnutrition across the globe.

The Beginning of the pangs of distress

Matthew 24: 8 uses that phrase in describing the sign – the beginning of pangs. Those first two signs are the prelude or introduction to the Kingdom. There are more signs that will mark the last days for an in depth review of the Sign of the Last Days
