Judgements are coming to the Nations.

Dear Ianus: I believe in one God and that he is in control of all that is happening. If people would just study the bible they would see that 100 prophecies foretold by Jesus have come true. The rise of Hitler and the Roman Empire, Nero, were all a series of Anti-Christs.
Christians know that if we believe in Christ and are not of the world we will be persecuted. This is the same for the Jewish nation who Satan would like to swallow because they are God's chosen people. The muslim world is part of the fall of nations. Evil is gaining, but will not triumph in the end. I'm sorry you don't believe in the next world the righteous are going to. Everyone is a sinner and that is why Christ died for us, but through beliefe abd God's power, there will be a better world created.
This is my total faith, I have seen so many lives changed and people become happy, even though they may be poor or under strife. Ministries are doing great things around the world.
Brazil, Singapore, Uganda, Montevideo Uruguay, India, Thousands come to faith each year, and God's power is evident as the Kingdom of God advances against the kingdom of darkness. There are consequences for living in sin, greed, and idolotry which all nations are paying for.
Matthew 24: 3-13- Jesus telling his disciples- Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name claiming I am the Christ, and will deceive many. You will hear wars and rumors of wars but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines earthquakes in various places. All are the beginning of birth pains. Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated from all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and false prophets will appear and deceive many. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved, and this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world, as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
Romans 1, When nations rebel against God, and deny him, and cause evil, God resorts to remedial judgements which increase over time. What God does in time of national rebellion is to lower the hedge of protection around the nation and allow evil to multiply. Yes we could die for our belief, but the cost is worth it. Do you choose heaven or hell?
Russian Premier Kruschev said, We can't expect the American people to jump from capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their leaders by giving them small amounts of Socialism until they awaken one day to find out they have Communism. He also said Communism would take over America without firing a shot, and thats whats happening today!
I am sorry to say most of the world is not going to be ready for the disasters that befall us. Man will not save us or the best inventions in the world, or money, or wealth. The nations will realize who is in control and we are nearing this period.
2nd Thessalonians 9-11: The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs, and wonders and in every sort of evil that deceives (those who are perishing) meaning not saved, THEY PERISH BECAUSE THEY REFUSED TO LOVE THE TRUTH AND SO BE SAVED. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness. We have freedom of choice, what decisions we make affects our futures!
Islam is believing in a false God, and will do anything to fullfill what they think is their destiny. They will also perish for this evil.
John 5:24- I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life, and will not be condemned. He has crossed over from death to life.
Those in darkness will never understand what I am saying. They are refusing the truth.
We can exchange ideas like this forever, but I am strong in my faith and no one will ever convince me of a different path.
Do you know the signs of the end times.
Israel being gathered to her homeland.
Jerusalem in the world spotlight.
The EU bringing together the heart of the Roman Empire.
The Middle East peace process the number one issue.
Iraq, the country of ancient Babylon, has risen to world prominence.
Globalsim is replacing nationalism as the new world order.
The growing apostasy of the visible churches is surging all around us. This is false doctrine, and not biblical doctrine being preached by some pastors. They interpret their own meanings, not the bibles.
Sincerely, Anne- USA
