“The World /Society We Want!”, Not Beheading.

Somebody has to beat (scapegoat} the donkey in order to ignore the will of
God, and in order to love most the wages of unrighteousness.
In one week out of the tensions of the Middle East, Ferguson {a police
officer was killed} and other US crimes, we have heard the startling
statements from the President of France and President Obama on the world
and the society “we want” and our children deserve.  Well, the problem
according to the Bible is much larger than this, for all of these major world-
wide problems have in common the rising tide of “sins and lawlessness” (II
Thessalonians 2:7), inevitable as part of the great world-wide apostasy
called the Falling Away.  If you don’t see the threat of terrorism world-wide
{expanding even to Moore Oklahoma with the beheading of a woman there}
with a common element of sin and lawlessness as a flood, you should; and
surely it is also obvious to you that world events are wrapping up for the
great end with a bang--you have read of increased crime all over the US, of
increased calamities all over the world.  
NOTE:  By the way, we heard neither from any of our national leaders nor
from the world leaders at the UN the names of God the Father nor of the
name of His Son Jesus Christ.
Do you not think that such national and increasing sins in this nation are as
much a stench in the nostril of God as killing and beheading?  The growing
sins of America, not mentioned by our leadership, those same increasing
national sins are lopping the spiritual head of America:  (1) lack of respect for
the sabbath day, the opposite of what it should be in the sight of God, it has
become more a day of physical activity and spiritual inactivity; (2) increasing
the nation scoffs at God’s plan for marriage as one man and one woman and
for life; (3) in churches, the divorce rate increases at an unbelievable rate;
and (4) the sign of a complete national wide loss of respect for God, the
taking of the great and honorable name of God in vain is written in most TV
and movie scripts, advertised openly with OMG, and has become more a
part of American citizens language than mother, apple pie, and the flag.  
Without proper respect for God we have nothing and we are nothing!
16-1:  What we want and what we are going to get according to the Bible.
NOTE:  A movie with Nicholas Cage came out this month about “Left Behind”,
which describes more than Presidents Obama and of France, for the majority
of American Christians, what they want?  They want and expect from false
prophets and itching ears teachers, they before all gets worse they are going
to be raptured out of the way.  What a deception!  But it is easily seen what
they want and why they want it:  (1)  Christians, it is falsely claimed will be
removed before the final tribulation that is more physical on the earth than on
persecutions as was the great tribulation of the first century; (2)  they
honestly expect to be taken up before the great battle of Megiddo, which is
imminent before us right now; (3) against all Bible and world conditions of
today evidence, they deny the Falling Away with all its sins and lawlessness,
because if the Falling Away is going on, then they have missed a false
rapture they claim.  So, while we criticism Obama and the President of
France for heir desperate wants for the world and society, don’t forget your
equally desperate expectations to be raptured up before all this
unpleasantness of the End come to an END.
It was almost startling to hear at the United Nations coming from the
President of France, remarks about “The World We Want!”.  It is a beautiful
idea of the worldly peacemakers, and certainly with the recent speeches by
the President of France, the King of Jordan, President Obama and others, if
the world we want can be achieved on earth and soon, these leaders with
the support of their nations are the ones to fulfill that world-wide want and/or
need.  {And of course, it is these committed leaders, willing to walk the walk
and talk the talk, that can, with the enemies they oppose, exert some
determinative wants for planet earth.} The believer of “In God we trust” and
those of faith in an omnipotent God running out His purpose for this old world,
before the ushering in of the new heavens and earth, somewhat instantly
react with “What Does God Want for This World”?  {Unfortunately God and
His Word did not have a clear and dynamic spokesman at the United
Nations.}  These questions and statements are BIG, world big, and these
leaders are the largest; and about the only Person and Power any bigger is
the will and want of God for this world.  It it not as difficult as you might think,
as the purpose of God for the world was recorded as part in the first century
of God’ Word in Ephesians, not far from all the problems now seen in the
Middle East.
“...having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His {to
recognize whose will is at work now and back in the first century, you must
start with verse 1:3. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus
Christ...”} good pleasure which He purposed in Himself  {this God of the
Universe that is the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ did not and does not
need the UN or US or UAE, or any group or nation to vote, or help him in the
planning out of purpose for the future of this world, it is done according to His
“good pleasure which He purposed in Himself--sounds simple but that is all
that is needed}, that in the dispensation of the fulness of the times He might
gather together in one all things in Christ, both of which are in heaven and
which are on earth--in Him.”  (Ephesians 1:9,10)
16-2:  If God is that much in control, then why all this sin, beheading, and
destruction.  That answer is also simple according to the Bible. (II
Thessalonians 2:17)
1.  There is another mystery beside the mystery of God’s will {quoted above}
at work in the world and that has been at work since the first century, that is
the mystery of the rising tide with each world event of “sin and lawlessness”.
“For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work {already at work in the
first century Roman Empire world of the Apostle Paul}; only He who now
restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.”  (II Thessalonians 2:7)
NOTE:  The “He” in “He who now restrains” is capitalized because He is God
the Holy Spirit, sent on earth to take the place of Jesus after the Ascension,
and who will be withdrawn near the peak of the Falling Away.
2.  It continues in II Thessalonians 2, according to Paul, that behind this
mystery of lawlessness is (1) the lawless one--the man of sin; and (2) Satan
himself, the dragon.
“The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all
powers, signs, and lying wonders.”  (II Thessalonians 2:9)
NOTE:  Obviously, there is more at work than the determinative will of God,
only in His permissive will to wrap up world events and bring the whole world
to Jerusalem and Megiddo, in the exact words it is “the working of Satan”
that both inspires the mysteries of lawlessness, uses it, and is the real power
behind the man of sin that leads the final battle at Megiddo.  Also as we will
see from Revelation 20:8, it is Satan that (1) deceives all the nations of the
four corners of the world; and (2) that he, Satan, gathers, under the
permissive will of God to wrap up world events, them against Jerusalem.
16-3:  Historical records of Beheading and “Who is responsible?” is as old as
the book of Deuteronomy, chapter 21 and verses 1-9.
1.  It is the heifer that is beheaded, we don’t know how the “one was slain”.
“If one be found slain in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee to
possess it, lying in the field, and it be not known who hath slain him:.”
2.  For responsibility for the slain, check the nearest city.
“Then thy elders and thy judges shall come forth, and they shall measure unto
the cities which are  round about him that is slain:  
2.  Responsibility for the slain is directed toward the elders of the nearest
city.
And it shall be, that the city which is next unto the slain man, even the elders
of that city shall take an heifer, which hath not been wrought with, and which
hath not drawn in the yoke; And the elders of that city shall bring down the
heifer unto a rough valley, which is neither eared nor sown, and shall strike
off the heifer's neck there in the valley:  
3.  Priests, the sons of Levi judge.
And the priests the sons of Levi shall come near; for them the LORD thy God
hath chosen to minister unto him, and to bless in the name of the LORD; and
by their word shall every controversy and every stroke be tried:  And all the
elders of that city, that are next unto the slain man, shall wash their hands
over the heifer that is beheaded in the valley:  
4.  The heifer is beheaded so that the innocents of the slain can wash their
hands of guilt and responsibility.
And they shall answer and say, Our hands have not shed this blood, neither
have our eyes seen it.
5.  Forgiveness from God.
Be merciful, O LORD, unto thy people Israel, whom thou hast redeemed, and
lay not innocent blood unto thy people of Israel's charge. And the blood shall
be forgiven them. So shalt thou put away the guilt of innocent blood from
among you, when thou shalt do that which is right in the sight of the LORD.
16-4:  Some call it a seismic moment the coalition evident at the United
Nations where 5 Arab nations joined with the US, Great Britain, and France
to degrade and annihilate ISIS.  The Apostle Peter described long ago and
recorded in the Bible what would be truly seismic and both with a large noise
and the largest earthquake ever, end this old world. (II Peter 3:10-13)
1.  Inevitable at the One day of the LORD and Lord, the time known only to
God Himself, both the heavens and earth will be destroyed.  (3:10)
2.  In light of the coming day of the Lord, what kind of persons should we be
in all conduct and godliness. (3:11)
3.  The heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements of the earth
will melt with fervent heat.  (3:12)
4.  The real hopeful future, and the only basis for world optimism of all kind,
is that after the destruction of the old, we look for a new heaven and a new
earth where God and righteousness dwell. Of course centered around the
new Jerusalem lowered down from heaven. (3:13)
16-5:  Future world events as laid out by God and recorded in the Bible in
Revelation 20, starting with the beheading of those who did so for Jesus.
(Revelation 20:1-15)
1.  Revelation 20:4-6 first to put beheading up front, so much now on the
world scene.
“And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto
them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of
Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast,
neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in
their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.  But the
rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is
the first resurrection.  Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first
resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be
priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.”
2.  The beginning of determined AND RECORDED world events as Recorded
in Revelation 1-3.
“And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the
bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.  And he laid hold on the dragon,
that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand
years,  And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal
upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years
should be fulfilled: and after that he must be  loosed a little season. “
3.  Satan, the dragon is loosed on the world scene as “the power of the holy
people is completely shattered”  (Daniel 12:7), because the Holy Spirit is
withdrawn from earth (II Thessalonians 2:7)
“And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his
prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters
of the earth, Gog and Magog {East of the whole world and West of the
whole world}, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as
the sand of the sea.  
4.  The END of world events at Megiddo. (Revelation 20:9,10)
“And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of
the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of
heaven, and devoured them.  And the devil that deceived them was cast into
the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are,
and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”
5.  God reigns with His feet up there in the clouds and He sits in command on
the great while throne, and this is the time immediately after Megiddo, the
final battle, when the old heaven and old earth pass away.  Then final
judgement.
“And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the
earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.  And
I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were
opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the
dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books,
according to their works.”
6.  Resurrection of all the dead, judgment according to works,
“And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered
up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according
to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the
second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was
cast into the lake of fire. “
16-6:  According to President Obama speaking at the UN, “The future
belongs to those who build and not to those that destroy.”
No, the very near future belongs to God and His purpose of uniting in one
under  Christ all in heaven and on earth.
NOTE:  Ever since Warren came out with purpose driven wants to take the
place of spirit and Christ driven wants, and immediately after the equally
devastating fictions of LeHaye with the left behind series, from the office to
Presidents to the local level, there has been increased respects for wants.  
Goodness, we now have a generation of youth, Christian or otherwise, that
are by and large motived by what they want in of what they should.
God’s purpose for future world events.
“...having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His {to
recognize whose will is at work now and back in the first century, you must
start with verse 1:3. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus
Christ...”} good pleasure which He purposed in Himself  {this God of the
Universe that is the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ did not and does not
need the UN or US or UAE, or any group or nation to vote, or help him in the
planning out of purpose for the future of this world, it is done according to His
“good pleasure which He purposed in Himself--sounds simple but that is all
that is needed}, that in the dispensation of the fulness of the times He might
gather together in one all things in Christ, both of which are in heaven and
which are on earth--in Him.”  (Ephesians 1:9,10)
16-7:  A sixth Christian fable must be added to the other 5 top Christian
fables (II Timothy 4:3,4) of Christianity today, the Christian fable or world
fable and label of “Motivation by Wants” has been neglected, yet must be
consider as at the basis of all of the other five.
1.  The fable of the Christian secret rapture has the want at base, that
Christians want to self-deny the existence of the Falling Away, hope to
escape the falling away end and the final tribulation because that is what they
want, and want to be unique in that with the false rapture of LeHaye and the
BBFers they would get ahead of the dead in Christ with their resurrection.  In
short, it is the elect wishful thinking of every generation!
2.  It is clear from the Pentecostal Problem (PP) as dealt with in the Word of
God of II Corinthians 14, that those who will not heed those instructions, both
chose to be ignorant out of their own wants, and also have an exaggerated
Christian ego that either the Word of God came to them only or came out of
them.
3.  The Religion of the Seared Conscience commanded from the vatican the
rules of non-Biblical and unnecessary non-marriage that also created
unwarranted and abusive wants.
4.  Messianic Judaism wanted and wants to restore salvation by works, rules
and regulations because they want to gain superiority to salvation by grace.  
Also they want to use their knowledge of Hebrew, and they want to be
unique with a unique relgion,.
5.  And the Christian fable of the “Gospel of Prosperity”, it rationalizes the old
sin of wants gone amuck into greed and magnified those of many
possessions as the real spiritual and moral leaders.
16-8:  One might easily conclude from the Bible that “Motivation by Wants” is
the Doctrine of Balaam, the malady of Prophets, nations, churches, and
humanity, stated simply as “lovers of the wages of unrighteousness”.  (II
Peter 2:8-17)
“The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to
reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:  But chiefly them
that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government.  
Presumptuous are they, self willed, they are not afraid to speak evil of
dignities.  Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not
railing accusation against them before the Lord.  But these, as natural brute
beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they
understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption; And shall
receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in
the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their
own deceivings while they feast with you; Having eyes full of adultery, and
that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have
exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: Which have forsaken the
right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of
Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; But was rebuked for his
iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the
prophet.  These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a
tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.”  (II Peter 2:8-
17)
