The name of this blog is taken from Luke 21:28 where Jesus says: “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” — Please note: Most of these blog entries can also be found at my Awaken Bible Prophecy Update Rumble channel at: https://rumble.com/c/c-783217 —…
A time is coming when draconian rules will be imposed by our US government – acting as the police state it aspires to be – in the name of saving humanity. Are we prepared for that time? Have we practiced for it? Will true Christians experience this dystopian nightmare?
There is a somewhat popular, so-called doctrine in the world of Christendom called Open Theism that we’re looking at today. Its heritage is that it’s descended from a previously popular belief system known as Moral Government Theology, or MGT. As MGT became more widely known and discussed, it became clear that it was heretical, or as one theologian critically stated, it “must be classified not as a form of Christianity but as heathenism masquerading as Christianity.” That’s a serious indictment and well-earned, as we’ll see shortly. However, since MGT effectively gave birth to Open Theism, and this doctrine is prominent today in NAR circles, we need to investigate both of these theological ideologies to better understand what is being taught in some areas of Christianity.
Many of you have no doubt heard about the upcoming FEMA nationwide emergency alert test coming up on October 4, 2023, with an alternative date of October 11. Its purported purpose is to simply assure that this system continues to be a viable means by which to notify the public in the event of a significant emergency event.
Making the rounds in Alternative Media is the warning that this test isn’t as benign as stated. There are essentially two theories about this.
Whether we look back at many historical events or we consider ones that happen today, there is something that is off about the explanation surrounding them. Isn’t it common sense that if a tragedy happens, we can come to a straightforward understanding that satisfies most people? Wouldn’t you think that Occam’s Razor should apply?
There are a number of NAR end-times beliefs that have puzzled and disturbed me as I’ve come across them through comments made by those who have watched or read some of my Prophecy Updates or Commentaries. One such belief really threw me for a loop when I first saw it. Now that I’ve studied it a little more, I understand where the idea comes from, i.e. why people have it, although I steadfastly disagree with the concept.
To the best of my recollection, I read Out of the Silent Planet by C.S. Lewis many years ago, well before I was saved. However, if in fact I did read it then, it was totally new to me this time around as I partook of it as an Audiobook. While listening, I worked at making sense of the world that Lewis painted, and finally at the end came to an understanding. I don’t know if the conclusions I came to originated where Lewis was coming from, but I did find an interesting correlation.
