Will the World Ever be the Same Again?
In an extract from Tony Pearce's article Light for the Last Days .He says this global crisis caused by the pandemic has radically changed our society as we know it. If the lockdown lasts a longtime, we may never back to normal. Economists are saying we are facing a crash 'bigger than the depression'. In the US it has been said the pandemic could cost $7 trillion and cause greater unemployment than in the Great Depression. A now frightened President Trump has issued secret orders to facilitate a military takeover of the US in the event that civilian leadership is incapacitated. There are warnings that the EU may fall apart, as its weakest economies are hit (Italy and Spain), with the potential to bring down the Euro currency. Borders are going up between EU countries, ending 'freedom of movement' in the Schegen zone. So, the two central policies of European integration are in danger, which may bring about a radical change in the way Europe is governed. Some are saying that China deliberately created the crisis, using a virus manufactured in its bio lab in Wuhan, which is situated near the market where the virus is said to have originated. It was then used by the Communist Party to test their ability to lock down and control their own population. As it then spreads around the world, China is able to use the economic crisis which follows to cripple the economies in the west and take control of them.
The crisis is already being used to push the world in to the direction of global government. On 26th March Gordon Brown former Labour Prime Minister, urged world leaders to create a temporary form of global movement to tackle the twin medical and economic crisis caused by the pandemic. This call coincides with a video conference meeting of the G20 group of developed and developing countries, chaired by Saudi Arabia said it would have been preferable to have also included the UN security council.
The concept of a New World Order ties in with Bible prophesies that in the days before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ there will be an increase of disasters leading to a time of World wide time of tribulation (Matthew 24) out of which the Antichrist government of Revelation 13 will emerge. As events unfold in the coming months we will know how near we are to that time. Jesus warned of pestilience as a sign of His coming.' And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilence : and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven. Luke 21:11 It is time for the nation to turn back to God before it is too late.
2Chronicles 7:14 If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
When Israel went away from God he brought judgement on the land it is the same today.
We need to response to what's happening before its too late and turn back to him. There is judgement and harvest and out of judgement there will come a harvest of souls into the kingdom. Let us pray for ourselves and for our nation to repent and turn back to God.
A Global Day of Prayer and Repentance for revival and restoration will be held on September 26th 2020 . For more information go to www.thereturnwebsite.org
