“And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given to him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny, and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto him over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars from heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
And the heavens departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and the rocks of the mountains;
And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” (Revelation 6: 1-17)
We live in an interesting quadrium as many believe that we are living in the End Times, but those same individuals will not address the association between the rise of President Trump and his prophetic impact. It’s easy for Christians to see that the world has become unlawful and unjust but it’s very difficult to see those same traits within our President.
We can debate all day about who is telling the truth about President Trump’s conduct prior to becoming President of the United States or we can also dismiss these actions by stating that he has become a born-again believer and his actions don’t demonstrate the man he is today. The truth is that these debates don’t matter. Who cares if President Trump says that he is a Christian or if he states that he worships God if his actions don’t demonstrate these same attributes. Have we as a society gone so far away from morality that we provide excuses for anyone who tells our itching ears what we want to hear? Have we forgotten that we have been warned to watch for a dynamic leader who will deceive the whole world?
The one fact that no one can debate is that since the inauguration of Donald Trump, the entire world has been shaken. Our heads have been spinning and no one knows what is real. We are even having debates about the meaning of “Truth” and we have been told that truth is subjective. Our fabric of understanding has been rocked so badly that the allies of the United States are reconsidering their alliance, while the average American must debate if our President is racist or not. Open your eyes!! How can we be so naïve about what is happening to our world and our society? How can we stand by and express our Christian alliance to a man who has proven his Christian principles are skewed?
Just take a true hard look at the first four seals of the Apocalypse spoken about in Revelation, and ask yourself if these events are unfolding? When did it seem like these events accelerated? It’s easy to see the downward spiral of our society started with the election of Donald Trump and since then the world has witnessed the loss of peace, economic instability, and we are currently on the verge of World War 3 in the Middle East. This is not a stretch of the truth, this is only an honest depiction of our world.
We can choose to defend the President of the United States and state that he did not cause these events to unfold and that this is all part of God’s plan. We can make any excuse stating that the United States is being/or will be blessed for our association to Israel. We can say anything we want but we must be true to what Scripture tell us? It is true that a promise was given to Abraham that anyone who blesses Israel will be blessed and anyone who curses Israel will be cursed, (Genesis 12:3) but we must also understand that during the time of the end, all shall be judged, and all shall be required to repent. (2 Corinthians 5:10) Those same Christians that are stating that American will be blessed are stating that all Christians will be Raptured prior to any Tribulation. Considering even Jesus stated that His return would be at the end of the Tribulation, (Matthew 24: 29-30) this is only wishful thinking. We were warned about deceitful teachers that would tell the masses what they want to hear (2 Timothy 4: 3-4) and this is exactly what is happening!
Be on guard as we can see the deception around us is very strong. Too many have chosen their side and no longer listen to sound doctrine. They only listen to teachers who tell them what they want to hear and refuse to acknowledge that they have not studied the Word like they should have. Very few are willing to dig deep within Scripture to find the answers and will listen to anyone who tells them the next prophetic word or event. We as Christians have lost our way and we are about to witness the repercussions for our lack of understanding. (Hosea 4: 6)
“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, that ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
Remember ye not, that when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.” (2 Thessalonians 2: 1-17)
