What Next?

Each morning, I turn on the news to see what the latest developments are in the United States and around the world. So far, 2020 has been a year of bad news followed by worse news. This has me asking the question, "What next?!"  Seriously, what is going to happen next? This country, this world seems to be coming unraveled at the seam. People have become so mean, so destructive, and so full of hate that it makes me think that we are headed for a civil war or that America is about to commit suicide as a nation. We went from trying to fight off a virus to fighting over racial supremacy, a tit for tat battle over black life matters or white life matters when we all know that God says all life matters.

Wouldn’t it be great, and what would you give right now to have a world leader that could bring peace to all the fights, wars, and problems?! Someone who is a great speaker, a great problem solver, a person who can help solve the world hunger problems, the sickness around the world. Start looking for such a person because the stage is set for Him and He will be more popular than Jesus Christ and worshiped by the world in ways that Christ has never been worshiped. Some will even call him the Christ/Messiah but in reality he will be the Antichrist. This is what we read from Paul:

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-8).
