December 21 — Never Let A Crisis Go To Waste

You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before. Rahm Emanuel

We had Y2K when everyone believed computers would not work in 2000.  Harold Camping told us the end would happen on May 21 and then October 21, 2011.  America, as we know it, will not be the same if we go over the fiscal cliff at the end of this month.  We are now approaching December 21, 2012 when the Mayan and the Hopi Elders predicted the end would come.  The East and West Coast will be flooded because of global warming.

You may have read where a number are taking this prediction very serious.  Thousands of people in the Netherlands are preparing for that day by accumulating emergency supplies.  It has been circulating on the Internet, in books and in the past a motion picture.  Rumor has it that the government is actually preparing secret underground bunkers.

What we think about the end and eternity will determine how we live our lives today.  Are we preparing for Jesus’ return or are we living as if there will never be an end?  Prophets in the Old Testament told us about Christ’s first coming and it turned out exactly as predicted.  Are the predictions in the New Testament something we can believe in?

II Peter 3:10 – 12 – “But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.  Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming.  That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat.”

Revelation 6:12 – 14 – “There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as late figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.”

When I see what is going on in Washington, D.C. it reminds me of what God said to Jeremiah:

Jeremiah 9:4 – 6 – “Beware of your neighbor! Don’t even trust your brother! For brother takes advantage of brother, and friend slanders friend. They all fool and defraud each other; no one tells the truth.  With practiced tongues they tell lies; they wear themselves out with all their sinning.  They pile lie upon lie and utterly refuse to acknowledge me,” says the Lord.”  Verse 9 – “’Should I not punish them for this?’ says the Lord. ‘Should I not avenge myself against such a nation?’”  NLT

II Timothy 3:1 – 5 – “You should know this, Timothy that in the last days there will be very difficult times. For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred.  They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good.  They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God.  They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!”

It sure looks like we are living in the end times.  For those of us who have lived as long as I have certainly seen the U.S., in particular and the world in general, fit the description described in Scripture.

Be aware that people are using the world ending and the fiscal crisis as a means of deceiving and manipulating people.  I am amazed at those being interviewed on the street how little they know about our government and the world in general.  They are so easily led astray.  Read and study your Bible and place your trust in what it says rather than what some leader might try to get you to believe.

Is there any place in the Bible that warns us against climate change caused by man?  It takes a crisis to get our attention and when we have a storm like Sandy in New York and New Jersey they want us to accept passing laws against carbon omission so they can tax us more.
