Life is a journey; the choices you make now will determine your eternal destination.

My journey, continued

Over the last few days, I have become increasingly disturbed and disgusted at things that are going on in the world. If you subscribe to LifeSite news, you will know what I'm talking about; mothers who are killing their babies, the drive to get pedophilia legalized are just two of the stomach-churning stories.
So many people so full of hate! So much evil! How can this world survive? It seems that it is spiraling into oblivion. There is war on our children, especially in schools, there is indoctrination of women to make them think that it's ok to kill their children, war on modesty and chastity.
I'm thankful that I'm getting old. At the rate things are going, I don't want to see what the world will be like in 20 years. It's going to be bad enough in just the next few years.
The spiritual battlefield is fully engaged. I find no solace in thinking that God permits evil so that good can come from it, because the evil is almost more than I can bear. I'm sure history is full of such times, but it seems that each cycle of violence and hatred and evil is worse than the last.

I cry out with Isaiah 6:11.....
And I said: How long, O Lord? And he said: Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land shall be left desolate.

all these are signs of the Great Tribulation. Remember who rules the world. satan. "woe to the earth, for the devil has been cast down to you having great anger, knowing he has but a short period of time". take heart that the end is near, and if we are blessed to see it, then know that satan never again will be allowed to corrupt man, and turn our civilization into a stewing pot of evil. things are going to get alot worse until the return of Christ the King. in that day upon His return, every knee on earth will bend. and those that remain evil, they will gnash their teeth. as it is written, so it will be. should we not see the return of Christ the King on earth, we will be in heaven, and see it from there. either way, we are living in the end times. the evil of man has depressed me alot. but, like you, i hang on steadfastly to Christ, and put on the armour of God.

i found the Scripture about the armour of God.

Eph 6:10-17

Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armour of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled round your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
