After reading a dozen articles this morning about BREXIT and its expected aftermath, I was reminded of the 2014 Ebola scare.
The headlines screamed of world-wide contagion, governments were panicking, and people became fearful of even getting on airplanes.
On October 14, 2014 a headline from CNS News warned that the virus would be spread by mass migration:
“Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly, commander of the U.S. Southern Command, predicted last week that the Ebola virus will not be contained in West Africa, and if infected people flee those countries and spread the disease to Central and South America, it could cause “mass migration into the United States” of those seeking treatment.”
It was on that day, while recalling the 2003 SARS panic, that we said this: “The panic soon passed, and if we are where I think we are on the Bible’s timeline, this will pass as well”.
While the Bible does call for global government in the last days before the return of Jesus Christ, the exact timing is not known to us. Daniel 7, 9, 11 and Revelation 6 and 13 all prophesy a world leader that comes wearing a victor’s crown carrying a bow with no arrows (Revelation 6:1-2).
He makes peace with Israel and her neighbors and will amaze the world. Precisely 42 months into his reign he will stand in a rebuilt temple in Israel and declare himself god (Daniel 9:27).
The next 42 months will be hell on earth as three sets of 7 judgments are unleashed on a Christ-rejecting world:
- Rev 6:1-17; 8:1-5 (Seal)
- Rev 8:6-13; 11:15-19 (Trumpet)
- Rev 16:1-21 (Bowl)
So, while some BREXIT headlines are still predicting that it will never happen (here), other headlines claim that BREXIT will free the world from global government (here), and, still others proclaimed the financial collapse on Friday is only the beginning (here) – keep in mind that God has got this one as well:
“The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect. The counsel of the Lord stands forever. The plans of His heart to all generations.” Psalm 33:10-11
