World Net Daily: Evangelical leader James Dobson warns that America is on the precipice of ushering “evil” into power should Democrats win the two Senate runoffs in Georgia set for Jan. 5.
“Our ‘sweet land of liberty’ is just two Senate races away from ushering in a socialist-driven agenda that is anti-faith, anti-family and anti-freedom,”
“One party proclaims the sanctity of human life, defends religious liberty and freedom of conscience, prioritizes the family as the foundation of civil society, and recognizes that we flourish only as one nation under God.
The other party champions abortion on demand up to the moment of birth, supports ‘gender transition’ for young children, demands that religious liberty take a back seat to supposed notions of ‘tolerance,’ and embraces the unconstitutional notion of ‘separation of church and state.’ The stark differences go on and on…” Read More …
Opinion: “Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”
Genesis 6:5 was a precursor to the flood. God destroyed every living creature except 8 souls. God also promised that He would never destroy the earth with water again. Jesus, who is God, however, said there would be tribulation:
“For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.” Matthew 24:21
If we fast forward to Revelation 3:10, Jesus tells the faithful Church that they would be kept from (Greek ek, out of) the tribulation.
For the sake of clarity, let’s say there are 8 billion souls on earth at the time of the rapture (1 Thess. 4:16-17), and 1 billion souls will be taken up.
Tribulation math (after 1B raptured/7B left behind)
- Rev. 6:7-8 = 25% of the world perish (1 billion 750 million)
- Rev. 9:14-16 = 1/3 of the remaining population perish (1 billion 575 million)
- Based on 7 billion (give or take) 3 billion 325 million will perish
For comparison, 40 million perished in WWI and 75 million in WWII = 115 million. According to the New York Times up to 1 billion perished in all the wars of mankind.
