As I am not an American, I don’t know much about American politics. I only found out during the past three weeks what it takes to get the US budget approved. I also realized that a power hungry president can manipulate this system to his advantage while making the opposition looks like the guilty party.
I believe the mark of the beast will be implemented after an economical disaster. The debt ceiling/budget talks can lead to a financial Armageddon. Pastor Brian Roberts wrote a good post on the subject and it can be read HERE.
Friends, we are getting many prophetic “dry runs” that makes us excited and then leads to nothing. We must be careful not to think like the scoffers.
2 Peter 3:3-6
Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
Let me be the first to admit that I sometimes get tired of watching, of getting exited, of the dry runs and the non events. But I pray that the Lord will keep me, will keep us awake and alert. One day there is going to be a prophetic sign, and it is not going to be a dry run. It is going to be the beginning of the end, and we will have to be ready.
Maybe this is the event… Whatever happens, stay alert, stay watching and pray always.
