It’s amazing how relevant Scripture is

Nobody who follows the news around the world can deny that actions against God and the followers of Jesus are the new normal.

It is no secret that many are committed to harass and oppose whatever comes from God and the Bible.  Nobody who follows the news around the world can deny it.   Actions against the followers of Jesus are the new normal.

#  There is a war against God, His laws and His followers.

The Bible predicts what we see happening before our eyes, ‘Then the dragon [devil] was enraged at the woman and went off to make war against the rest of her offspring – those who obey God’s commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus.’ 1

#  Scripture, written hundreds of years before Christ, predict what we experience.

Chapter 7 of the book of Daniel says, ‘He will speak against the Most High and oppress His saints and try to change the set times and the laws.’ Can it be that we see the changes the Bible predicted long ago before our eyes?

#  The war against God’s laws

The sentence ‘change the…laws’ is very interesting.  As it comes from the Bible, it logically refers to God’s laws.  For example, 

  • Marriage is not marriage between one man and one woman as God ordained it anymore.   Any ‘variations’ are now ‘marriage.’  It is almost as if ‘normal’ marriage is inferior. 
  • God intended marriage to be an exclusive, committed relationship between a man and a woman for life.  Today faithfulness to your partner is not that important.  
  • Male and female as God created them can be changed.  A male can jump the ‘barrier’ and become a female.  And vice versa.

#  Scripture tells us the outcome of this war against God and His people.

‘As I watched, this horn was waging war against the saints and defeating them, until the Ancient of Days [God] came and pronounced judgment in favour of the saints of the Most High and the time came when they possessed the Kingdom.’ 3

Conclusion

It’s amazing how accurate and relevant Scripture is.  What a privilege that God does not leave His children in the dark.  There is hope, because they know the outcome,  ‘His [Jesus’] dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and His Kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.’ 4

As you can see in the photo, there are two of us. We live and work together 24/7, studying and enjoying our grandchildren. Our passion is to know and understand what will happen after death. Is there a way to provide for and invest in that?
