Dear John L.,
Unfortunately, I believe what you have posted here is true as many of your words I have heard in prayer and most of us have heard in different forms from other believers as well. The judgment of the proud, arrogant and haughty must come so that those who will see, will see and repent of their folly. It is his goodness. The foolishness of God is greater than man's wisdom. Their idols will no longer be able to help them.
Those who trust the Lord and fear Him only need not fear as they will be supernaturally protected and provided for during this time. It is the greater works which will be done through His holy vessels as the Lord promised.
Some of those that scoff and mock God and his servants will have a chance to make a correction but not all. (Stephen Hanson posted a word recently that speaks to this in part as well). Many will see that the riches they have stored up for themselves will have been for naught and much will come into the hands of the righteous. The Lord knows who qualify as faithful to use this provision for the harvest and the glory of the Kingdom.
Man's systems are failing because they were created from the knowledge of the tree of good and evil. Many are troubled and focusing on how to rebuild the "good" system. I know that people hear this and think it is doom and gloom to make such a statement but I don't believe it will ever happen. His government will be established.
The time that remains is in the Lord's hands and the battle is His to Win!! I believe we have crossed a threshold this year and there is no turning back the clock. Much will be accomplished through the power of His might working through His chosen vessels who are wholly submitted to Him. Kingdom work. The kingdoms of this world ARE becoming the Kingdom of our Lord! It will be glorious for those who KNOW HIM and choose LIFE. It will be terrible for those who willfully choose death and hell.
This is why we need to pray for the veil to be lifted and for those who are even yet alseep to awake so that they do not fall into delusion and never recover. That the eyes of their understanding be enlightened in the knowledge of Him that they may know what is the hope of their calling and the richness of their inheritance in the saints.
(I did not have time to reference the scriptures so my apologies if any scripture is paraphrased without accuracy).
God Bless You!
From glory to glory,
