This week’s news + an explanation of two of the terms we hear a lot these days AS 2020 takes us into uncharted territory
IT’S NEWS TO ME
California Judge Rules Against Governor Newsom – She Stops His Unconstitutional Election Order With Injunction
I highly recommend the documentary The Social Dilemma on Netflix. It exposes the gross hypocrisy of the tech giants as they claim that their censorship of conservatives is all about eliminating fake news. You will be enraged and frightened when you learn the degree to which you have already been manipulated and sold to the highest bidder.
SETTING OUR MINDS ON THINGS ABOVE
The Day of the Lord
|Pay attention to God’s Voice|
Well, the worst-case election scenario has come true. Accusations of fraud (with significant evidence) will likely drag extend the process for some time. It appears that the leaders of the left are determined to get rid of Donald Trump by “whatever it takes.” The globalists have never had such an opportunity. With more and more people seeing 2020’s unprecedented worldwide events as an indication that we may be living in the last of the Last Days, it would be helpful to understand some of the biblical terms that often arise. Let’s look briefly at The Day of the Lord.
This term can apply to the end times or last days, but not exclusively. It describes times when God intervenes in human history in a profound way, bringing either wrath and judgment or restoration and blessing. Most often, Israel is the object of His intervention (Zeph. 1:14-18; Joel 1:15), but sometimes it is heathen nations, especially Israel’s enemies (Is. 13:6; Jer. 46:10; Ezek. 30:3). The eschatological Day of the Lord encompasses the time of The Great Tribulation (Is. 2:12-19; 4:1), the Second Coming of Christ (Joel 2:30-32) and the Millennium (Is. 4:2; 12; 19:23-25; Jer. 30:7-9). Finally, the Day of the Lord can describe an event or period of time that represents a partial fulfillment of the eschatological Day of the Lord (Joel 2:1-11; Is. 13:6-13).
The Day of the Lord is the major theme of the book of Joel. The prophet saw the severe drought and the invasion of locusts that had ravaged the land as punishment for the sins of the people. He also saw the locusts as a preview of the great army of locusts that would invade the earth in the eschatological Day of the Lord during the fifth trumpet judgment described in Rev. 9: 1-12).
The Last Days
The Jews thought in terms of two kingdoms or ages: the present age and the future age when the Messiah would reign over the whole world and bring worldwide restoration and righteousness. The Last Days usually refers to the last days of the present age. Occasionally, it will go beyond the present kingdom and into the Millennial Kingdom: And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it (Isaiah 2:2).
While all this may be confusing, we all can and should know for certain that we are to be prepared for the coming days, regardless of what terms we use. With everything that’s happening, something big has come upon us, so we had better pay close attention to the worlds’ events, but even more attention to the voice of God as He guides His children on the paths He has set for us in these last days. I believe the Day of the Lord is upon us.
ON THE LIGHTER SIDE
We have enough youth. How about a “fountain of smart?”
