Are we in the Politics of the End Time? Politics is the art or science concerned with guiding or influencing governmental policies. This could be extended to worldwide politics. If that is true, then we should expect that soon the prophecies of the Bible to start manifesting around us. Whenever these occur the governments and leaders of this world will be tasked with Mitigating against these occurrences.
The Bible makes it pointedly clear that there is an ending. Man must give account for his deeds! This will occur on a day GOD has appointed. We know it as Judgment Day. GOD mercifully reminds us of a previous time when rained judgment on mankind and what happened.
Mat 24:38-39 For as were in the days, the ones before the flood, gnawing and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, as far as of which day Noah entered into the ark, and they did not know, until the flood came and lifted all. So it will be also in the arrival of the son of man.
Furthermore, this time there are certain signs that will point to the nearness of the end. JESUS’s disciples queried HIM concerning the signs of the end time-and HIS response.
Mat 24:3 And in his sitting down upon the mount of olives, there came forward to him the disciples in private, saying, Tell us when these things will be, and what is the sign of your arrival, and the completion of the age?
HE cautioned them that They should expect wars and reports of wars. But those should not necessarily mean the end time is near.
Signs that point to the end
Here the LORD answers HIS Israelites Apostles concerning what they should be looking for.
Mat 24:6 But you shall be about to hear of wars and reports of wars. Look to it! lest you be alarmed, for all these things must take place, but not yet is the end.
But since these things have been happening throughout the ages, we understand that the frequencies and intensity of the events is what makes the difference.
Mat 24:21-22 For there will be then great affliction, such as has not taken place from the beginning of the world until the present, nor in any way to be. And unless those days were cut short, not even was any flesh delivered. But on account of the chosen ones those days shall be cut short.
This is referring to nothing other than the great affliction that Israel should endure during those times. Here we also are assured that HE would mitigate on Israel’s behalf. HE further struck a more somber tone later in the discourse. We read:
Mat 24:9 Then they shall deliver you unto affliction, and shall kill you; and you shall be ones being detested by all the nations on account of my name.
Since the LORD was talking to HIS disciples who are Israelites, we should understand this to mean that the “Great Affliction” would be imposed on their descendants, Israelites. This could not be talking about nations nor Christians suffering under great affliction. Especially when it is stated in these verses that they are the ones detesting Israel.
From the Bible, we know that God has set out a predetermined plan of salvation for HIS people Israel which will run concurrently with a day of judgment for their enemies. Within this structure, HE has set up markers and milestones, so we know when HIS is coming near.
In the Politics of the End time the LORD instructs us to be vigilant
We have seen some terrible things that are currently happening in these times. One must be sleeping to ignore these events. There is the Coronavirus pandemic, the increasing, and intensity of natural disasters: fires, floods, hurricanes, volcanic activities, etc. The world will foolishly put that down to Global warming. But the LORD foretold all these phenomena in the previously quoted verses. Is Global warming contributing to the fact that the world is closer to World War 3 than we have ever been before? Is it why China is deploying nuclear missiles in space? We know they are pointed at America. Isn’t Russia and China working together on new Hypersonic weapons?
Mat 24:7 For nation shall rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, and pestilent things, and earthquakes in places.
Therefore, if we are sons of GOD we should not ignore these signs. We but obey the instructions of the LORD to watch and be vigilant.
Mar_13:37 And what shall I say to you -- to all I say, Be vigilant! Mar_13:34 It is as a man going abroad leaving his house, and giving to his servants the authority, and to each one his work; and to the doorkeeper he gave charge that he should be vigilant. Mat_25:13 Be vigilant then! for you know not the day nor the hour in which the son of man comes. Luk_11:35 Watch then lest the light, the one in you is darkness!
