Will You Bow? Complete Economic Domination

Then Nebuchadnezzar the king sent to gather together the princes, the governors, and the captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to the dedication of the image which Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.
Daniel 3:2

Nebuchadnezzar was the power of Babylon.  He was the great overseer of three major areas important to the life of every man, woman, and child in his realm.  He controlled the polity, economy, and religious life of all as is implied in the verse above.  In the political realm he commanded the regional rulers, governors, magistrates, judges, all law enforcement, and even the lawyers.  He was the ultimate control of the economy as is noticed with the mention of the office of treasurer.  The fact that he is using  these underlings to call all men to worship his image shows that he also controlled the diverse religious thought of his land and sought to unite it under one banner--himself.  What a type and shadow of the Antichrist.  Does not Revelation and other prophetic books teach us that the Beast will control these very areas?

For the last two days, and now for a third we have watched the US economy teeter on the brink of collapse.  In the past few weeks the world was focused on the debt talks of our government with great trepidation.  Why all of the attention? UPDATE: US Stocks Plunge As Recession Fears Drive Worst Loss Since Financial Crisis -  

In order for the economy of the world to join together as one, independent national economies will need to be surrendered.  We are witnessing the beginnings of that surrender.  All of the world now understands that one country's problems cause problems for all countries.  Russia's Putin seems to understand this as he recently stated the the US was dragging the world economy into the abyss.  He likened the US economy to a parasite sucking the life out of all the world.   Putin says U.S. is parasite on global economy | Reuters  Notice the stress on "global economy"?  Men everywhere have been trained to think globally.  Just yesterday I read an article in a British newspaper where a Guatemalan judge ordered an adopted child in the US to be returned as it appears she was the victim of an adoption ring (returning her is only right).  What was interesting was this statement, "If child not recalled, Interpol will be called upon."  Interpol--as in International Police!

Whether you realize it or not, you are seeing the birthing of a new global monster.  The pains are coming from the three distinct areas mentioned above, political, economic, and religious.  The call is growing louder to draw together as one government, one economy, one faith and together overcome the great issues facing humanity.  Among these are the need for peace and safety--the very cry that Jesus warned would bring sudden destruction.  From the ashes of a new world economic crisis a new leader, a new Nebuchadnezzar, an old prophetic beast of great evil will soon arise.  You are witnessing the birth of the last days coalition of nations from which the Beast and the False Prophet will soon emerge from the sea of humanity.  You are seeing the beginning of the end that is a new beginning.  From the chaos of the reign of Antichrist will soon come the Fourth Man walking through the fire with His faithful followers. 

As Nebuchadnezzar bowed before the One like unto the Son of God, the Antichrist and his henchman, the False Prophet, will also bow.  The world will see as they proclaim that there is but one Lord and Christ--even Jesus.  From there, it will be these two that are thrown into the fire.  They are the first two inhabitants of the Lake of Fire that burns forever and ever.

Should the economy crash and the world be plunged into great distress and economic chaos as a result, look up!  Your redemption draws nigh.  Mark my word, August and September will be pretty tough months, but your King is with you.  You are about to meet Him!  As Daniel was away on the King's business while the three Hebrew boys suffered, the church will be soon removed on the King's business while God brings unbelieving Israel to trust in Messiah Yeshua--Jesus Christ.  We may soon get to meet the real King of Kings and Lord of Lords face to face!  Oh!  Precious thought! Oh!  What business!

And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king's counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them.
Daniel 3:27

Will You Bow? Mindless Devotion

And he commanded the most mighty men that were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace....Therefore because the king's commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the flame of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.
Daniel 3:20 and 22

Imagine being put to death for your worship of the one true God.  It is nothing new as the blood of the martyrs has been shed for centuries.  The blood of the children of Israel has also been shed in quantities only God knows.  Also imagine being one of the soldiers following the commandment of Nebuchadnezzar.  What drives you to such devotion that you rush headlong into a hot oven knowing you will die?  What drives men to kill another person who is only guilty of worship at the command of a worldly leader?  Why do some give men mindless devotion without conscience to the point of death; furthermore, what drives them to commit horrid atrocities in the name of their cause or leader? 


Very soon the ban called DADT will be lifted from the military and the floodgates will be opened allowing open homosexuality in the ranks of the military.  At the same time, there have been numerous indications that Bible believers with an objection to the homosexual lifestyle will be forced from the ranks if they oppose homosexuality against the command directive.  So where is all of this going?  While believers are being forced out, those of differing faiths are being encouraged and courted.  Among those are followers of occultic practices. This action is not without a parallel, and its end result was one of the worst atrocities ever.

As the last post implied (see Will You Bow? Onward To Oneness), the sort of devotion that brings men to commit atrocious acts against humanity, blindly serve a political leader, and worship a man and his ideology comes from the rejection of the God of the Bible and His Christ while accepting a charismatic personality as a pseudo deity.  It is hero worship to the extreme.  Men like this wish to worship anything that doesn't have Jesus attached to it.  At its heart is a world view that is anything but Christ centered.  Those who have had the moniker of a Christian and committed godless acts in the past (or present) were acting in accord with institutions or dogmas of a human design that directly opposed the very words of Christ as revealed in scripture.  These grave errors remind us to stay grounded in and focused on the Word of God.  This devotion to scripture is becoming rare today since so many "scholars" see themselves as self appointed editors of scripture while following the science of textual criticism.  The overall point is that wickedness always rears its ugly head when God and the Bible are rejected in preference of men's philosophies and opinions.  

It is certain that we are seeing a very serious situation as it relates to the reforming of the military along lines other than the values that keep military leaders and personnel in check.  When lines of morality are blurred, restraint is removed, and conscienceless devotion is encouraged men need to prepare themselves for the inevitable horrors like those committed in Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia.  In both of these situations those whose devotion to God or ethical values prevented them from indiscriminately murdering  on command were weeded out.   Those with amoral characteristics were then sought.  It created a spiritual vacuum filled with wicked violence and unobstructed immorality.  Those who would have moral objections were being destroyed or were long since removed.

Ernst Rohm--Openly Gay Leader of the Brown Shirts

In Nazi Germany there were two groups that rose to power and assumed control of the government and military.  They were a group of open homosexuals and those with occultic ideals and practices.  The world view of both of these groups was diametrically opposed to the values of a Judeo/Christian world view.  Eventually those who followed occultic teaching gained greater strength and crushed the homosexuals that assisted them in gaining power.  Without an equal, they then sought to impose their rule by any means while destroying anyone who stood in their way.  We all know that the victimization of the Jews by these two groups without conscience and Christ guiding them eventually led to the Holocaust.  Are we seeing this scenario being set up again? If so, draw yourself close to Christ and hold on--persecution is on the way.

Will You Bow? Onward To Oneness

Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages, That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up: And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.
Daniel 3:4-6

Not long back I shared a message from Daniel 3 that dealt with the rise of persecution around us for those who seek to remain true to the infallible, inspired Word of God. The focus was mainly on persecution generated from the world.  That is a given with serving Christ as Jesus assured, "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world" (John 16:33). It is persecution and syncretism brought from "religious" circles that is more insidious.  Furthermore, the rate at which this is growing indicates that the prostitute unified religious system of the Tribulation is in its developmental stages.

Here is Nebuchadnezzar, a world leader, unifying all of the faiths of his vast kingdom into one system with him as the deity.  Sound familiar?  This is what will take place soon, but the Antichrist will be the center of worship. Just as the heralds of Babylon called all "people, nations, and languages" to worship the image Nebuchadnezzar erected, the false prophet will call all peoples, nations, and languages to worship the Beast.  It is not by accident that this hell spawned religion is called "MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH" (Revelation 17:5). How do you get all people to begin to think more in union with those of different views?  We just have to look at society to see that it is taking place everywhere.

First, you have to give people a hero.  Nebuchadnezzar was a hero.  Did he not conquer and rule the world?  That is impressive.  Modern man has a propensity to give credence to those who they view as having done something spectacular.  How many people look to famous singers, actors, or sports stars for spiritual guidance?  This even happens in Christian circles.  If someone is famous and they partially agree with our views and politics, then they are rushed to the pulpit to become a movement leader whether or not their view of God's work in Jesus Christ is orthodox or not.  You don't think it is true?  Go to a book store and look at the top selling books.  They will be from sports stars, TV personalities, successful or conservative politicians, or some other type of celebrity.  When you pull the glitz and glamour away you will find many of those same authors have improper agendas and/or heretical Christian theology.  

For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence. 
1 Corinthians 1:26-29.  

Assuredly, the Antichrist will rise to preeminence in religious thought in much the same way.  He will deceive so many, and that day of deception is close.  When Mormons who believe that Jesus (a son of God through a conjugal visit with Mary), and Satan are brothers, can stand at a pulpit and garner worldwide attention while those who point out the heretical beliefs are blasted as narrow minded, can you not see we are close?  When a governor can call for repentance and then bring heretics to the podium to pray for revival, can you not see that we are close?  When TV talk show hosts can spew all sorts of eastern philosophies having heretical "Christian" preachers agree while denigrating true Bible believers, can you not see that we are close?  When Christians care more for what any celebrity of any sort says even if it is direct opposition to the Bible, can you not see that we are close?  When the top selling Christian "fiction" books are heretical and churches are using them as Bible study guides while remaining undiscerning of the content, can you not see that we are close? When a man can preach absolute heresy in the form of Universalism and Gaea worship selling millions of books and most Christians can not discern the lies, can you not see that it is close and even at the door? (I could make this a longer paragraph with many other examples, but I think you get the point.)  Friend, the coming of Christ is close, and so is the deception and sorrow that comes with the Day of the Lord.  Get your eyes on God in Christ , stay in the Bible with Psalm 1 faith and quit looking anywhere else!

 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
Galatians 1:8-10
