After two programs about the Evil Day some of you have asked how to prepare – and even whether to prepare. The list of conditions Messiah foretold for this generation in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21 sounds quite daunting: wars, famines, plagues, earthquakes, natural disasters, social unrest, terror, big signs in the sky, hatred, persecution, betrayal, false prophets, increasing iniquity, love of many growing cold. How can we possibly prepare for all of that? And isn’t God going to just protect us no matter what we do? Don’t count on that one friends. Bad things DO happen to good people sometimes, which is why we need to follow the Word to be wise. In this program we focus on the recommended Scriptural response to all of these end time troubles that are sure to get increasingly more intense as we continue to move rapidly onward toward the climax of this age. You CAN be ready for the evil day! This program will tell you how!
This report was published by the USA Defense Department and is entitled “ANNUAL REPORT TO CONGRESS The Military Power of the People’s Republic of China 2005.” While the report attempts to present the information in a calm and reassuring way the facts presented in the report are alarming. They present a picture of a China that is sky-rocketing in both economic growth and military power. The report reveals China’s military to be over 13,000,000 in total, by far the largest army in the world. China is also reported to have a global nuclear reach with a military buildup and modernization presently underway of gigantic proportions. This buildup must be fueled from the world’s oil supply with China now just behind the USA as the world leader in oil consumption. The report tells us that China now imports more than 40% of its oil and that number is quickly increasing toward 80%, putting China on a collision course with its principle rival, the United States, in the competition for the world’s ever-shrinking supply of oil. All of these facts shed light on how Biblical prophecy is being fulfilled and will come to pass through the remainder of this final generation at the end of the age.
