Are We Entering Into A World Without Hope?

Revelation 12:9 – “The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.”

I want to point out in this verse: “Satan, who leads the whole world astray.”  Satan will deceive many and others will be led astray because of their rebellion against God.  Probably one of the greatest psychologists that ever existed is Satan.  He knows more about human emotions and how we are wired than anyone other than God.  It looks like he is stirring up the world at least the Middle-East for now.

Thirty years ago Egypt and Israel signed a peace treaty which has, to some extent, stabilized the Middle-East and has given Israel security in its southern neighbors.  Israel’s largest trading partner in the Middle-East has been Egypt.  Israel receives gas through the Egyptian pipeline a much needed resource.  A new government, particularly the Muslin Brotherhood, an Egyptian outlawed opposition group, could take over the Egyptian government.  Let’s hope that doesn’t happen.

Throughout the Middle-East you have a number of well educated young people that are unemployed. One out of seven college graduates in Egypt, Jordan and Tunisia are unemployed.  There are a number of those employed who are over qualified for their position.  We were created to be free, with a desire to belong or to be accepted and to feel competent.  Up to now social justice has never worked and it hasn’t in Egyptian and other Middle-Eastern countries.  A person who doesn’t feel free to choose, or have little chance to better themselves and are motivated by fear from a dictator can’t be pleased.  The average individual who is not happy with their present circumstance and has little hope wants change and if things are bad enough they demand it as we are now seeing it.

However, change does not always bring the consequences they envisioned. Sometimes it can be worse than before. Should the Muslin Brotherhood take over, their goal is to terminate Israel.  Instead of more freedom there would be less.  Their goal is to have a one-world government under Sharia law and terminate all infidels.

An article in the Washington Post links Bill Ayers, a member of the radical Weatherman underground organization to President Obama.  We have also learned that President Obama’s terrorist friend Ayers went to Egypt last January (2010) to teach Egyptians how to protest, wreak chaos, and force their way into office as the solution to the Mubarak government.  Will this teaching spread across the Middle-East to Saudi Arabia, Syria, Jordan, Tunisia, Algeria, and others?

Who doesn’t want change when things are not going well?  Doesn’t everyone want freedom, to hope, the need to achieve, to feel worthy and accepted?  Do you think Satan doesn’t know that?  Who do you think is behind all of this leading the world astray?  If you didn’t answer Satan you better get out your Bible.   For those who are teaching the world will end on May 21, 2011 or December 21, 2012 it looks like it will be longer than that.  This Egyptian uprising isn’t making Israel feel safer nor are they abundantly rich yet from the newly discovered gas and oil.  I believe that comes much later.
