Martial Law Can Be Established At Any Time—Christians Be Ready.

If you have read a number of my blogs I have written about the signs which will occur indicating the end for the world as we know it.  I am not concerned about December 21, 2012.  I am well aware of what the Bible prophesizes about the signs that will indicate when the end is near.

Writing blogs requires a lot of research and what I find can be very disturbing.  Accord to the Rockefeller Foundation this year, 13,000 will be killed in England at the Olympics by bombing.  They have 20,000 caskets on standby.  You read daily of the number of military that have been assigned to re-enforce security.  They also predict within the next ten years they believe there will be an earthquake in Indonesia that will kill approximately 40,000.  Then a tsunami comes that almost destroys Nicaragua.  Next a once in a millennium drought linked to climate change occurs.  It didn’t estimate how many will die from starvation.  It doesn’t say what causes the climate to change, which was a surprise. It looks like they missed the first prediction and no massacres happened at the Olympics. What about the others.

We are being told the present drought has caused a shortage in corn and soy.  Farmers are having a difficult time obtaining hay to feed their cattle.  It appears food costs could be raising.  If not this year, possibly next year.

Revelation 6:6 – “And I heard a voice from among the four living beings say, ‘A loaf of wheat bread or three loaves of barley will cost a day’s pay.  And don’t waste the olive oil and wine.’”

I then read about President Obama’s National Defense Resources Preparedness Executive Order.  The new Executive Order puts the government completely above the law.  The United States can become under martial law without a national emergency.  Only the president has the authority to take away the legitimate freedoms of U.S. citizens. What is extraordinary in the new Executive Order is that this supreme power is designated through the president to the secretaries that run the Government itself:

• The Secretary of Defense has power over all water resources;
• The Secretary of Commerce has power over all material services and facilities, including construction materials;
• The Secretary of Transportation has power over all forms of civilian transportation;
• The Secretary of Agriculture has power over food resources and facilities, livestock plant health resources, and the domestic distribution of farm equipment;
• The Secretary of Health and Human Services has power over all health resources;
• The Secretary of Energy has power over all forms of energy.

They can simply be done for “purposes of national defense,” allowing the government to do what it wants, when it wants, how it wants, to whomever it wants, all without any judicial restraint or due process.

What if some sort of disaster occurs prior to an election?  Could a president establish martial law and forgo elections.  Could he remain in office for a number of years while we continue to be under martial law?  These are some of the questions that citizens are asking as I researched the Internet.

Revelation 13:7 & 8 – “And the beast was allowed to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And he was given authority to rule over every tribe and people and language and nation. And all the people who belong to this world worshiped the beast. They are the ones whose names were not written in the Book of Life before the world was made—the Book that belongs to the Lamb who was slaughtered.”

World-wide Christianity continues to increase.  My concern is: will Christians have the spiritual maturity to withstand what is to come?  What will happen when God’s holy people are being conquered?  This is not something I expect to happen within the next few years but God keeps His promises.

We have been told by Scripture not to let the hindrances of life distract us from living a Christian life. Those hindrances can include work, money and amassing material items, ambition, church-made-rules, setting too high standards that can’t be met, having the wrong non-Christian friends, TV, the Internet & games, Facebook, etc.  Hindrances have caused many to not find time to pray or read their Bibles daily.  When the end times come I am afraid too many Christians will not have the faith and spiritual maturity to withstand what will happen.  They will be blinded and easily deceived by Satan.  This is no longer your grandparent’s world.  We are living in a different era requiring a different way of living.  If we are to be with God throughout eternity we, as Christians, had better be prepared to meet situations that we have never encountered before.  There is nothing this world can offer that is better than what God has prepared for His holy people who the Bible says will be conquered.  Be prepared!  Think about your future and not instant gratification.

Those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life have a promise made by Christ.  “Anyone who believes what I am saying right now and aligns himself with the Father, who has in fact put me in charge, will have ever-lasting life and will no longer be condemned an outsider.” 

Those who have lived by the principles Christ taught and have the Holy Spirit will be with God throughout all eternity.  This is a promise we can count on and God will remove all fear when we are faced with severe persecution.  Don’t ever doubt our Creator can make committed Christians fearless!  There is no need to worry.  If your name is in the Book, God will give you a faith you have never had before.  He will not lose one of us to Satan and you can count on His promise.  (Future blog: How to know if you are in the Lamb’s Book of Life.)
