(OPINION) MS – If things are so wonderful, then why do so many people feel a deep sense of unease about what is ahead? I think that the reason why our society is so obsessed with apocalyptic movies and television shows is that most of us realize on some level that we are living in an apocalyptic generation.
As I have been documenting in my articles over the last several months, the clock is ticking for humanity. If we continue to do things the way we have been doing them, our society will inevitably collapse. Even now, virtually all of our systems are exhibiting signs of failure, and yet most of us continue to live our lives as if the party will never end.
But it will end, and deep inside most of us know this. So how close are we to that point? Nearly 2000 years ago, Jesus detailed some of the things that we should expect to see as conditions turn apocalyptic… And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. Could it be possible that “the beginning of sorrows” is nearly upon us?
Without a doubt, we are living in a time when there are lots of rumors of wars. Russia and Ukraine nearly went to war this month, and if that would have happened the U.S. would have definitely gotten involved, and that could have led us directly into World War 3.
Meanwhile, the U.S. and China are now closer to military conflict than they have been at any point since the end of the Korean War. Taiwan is the main source of tension at the moment, but there are other flashpoints that could cause war between our two nations to erupt as well.
In the last 48 hours, however, developments in Israel have taken center stage globally. Dozens of rockets were fired into Israel on Saturday night, and terror groups are warning that “worse was still to come”… Two terror groups in Gaza took responsibility on Saturday for the salvos of rockets fired at Israel overnight, saying the attack was in response to violent clashes in Jerusalem in recent days and that worse was still to come.
