This is not the first time this has been used in history but at no other time in history could this system have been so exact, even to the point of tracing, watching and keeping all sorts of information on individuals. Night will come when no many can work; preaching the gospel. At that point; right after the time when the two witnesses will be killed in Jerusalem and the forces of the world believes they have defeated Jerusalem; Christ will come back and stand on the Mount of Olives and defeat those forces. It will come about that he will force the nations to learn peace as it is written.
Knowing these things, we may ask ourselves as Christians; what is our duty to country? What can and should we do? First we wake up to the full truth and not the made up unbiblical FABLES that the Apostle Paul said the professing churches would become involved in. Next we should understand that it is ok to defend the Biblical things this country stand for. That includes the Constitution. No other country is like it. It is legal and not unrighteous to physically fight for those things. However, we should know that God does not change. When he decided that Jerusalem and Judah was to be taken by Babylon, it did the leader no good to fight because God had told them by Jeremiah that it was his punishment to give themselves up to Nebuchadnezzar. That had to be just as hard for them to believe as it would be for many today to accept. My hope for my country is that we can turn it about or enough of the people so that it will become a problem at best for the beast power, so that it is hated even more than it is today. Why? Because the world would see it as the bastion for those STUPID Christians, as they would no doubt see it. The worst of it will only last 3 and ½ years. Remember the shadow type of this when Israel was in Egypt. Scripture says that the protections and acts of God will be so glorious finally that it would make the deliverance under Moses, pale in comparison. His promise is that on the different habitations of his people will be protected by as it were fire: Isaiah 4 verse 5 “And the LORD will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defense. Let’s be bold for the truth because it is written that, “they loved not their lives even to the death.” At Christ’s coming and prior to him setting his feet on the Mount of Olives, he will resurrect all that put God’s truth before his own life.
Christians should therefore not be discouraged. We know the last chapter of the book. Knowing it does not make the fight for truth less fearsome or intense. Not everyone will believe to the point of enduring. Those who endure to the end will rule the whole planet with Yeshua (Jesus) and be able in the future to always be joyful of playing a part in settling the matter about freewill, righteousness and peace.
