“There’ll be blue birds over the white cliffs of Dover
Tomorrow when the world is free.
There’ll be love and laughter
And joy ever after tomorrow,
Just you wait and see.”
Walter Kent music, lyrics by Nat Burton
The world longs for peace, will give up land for peace, will negotiate with tyrants for peace. Freedom, a word that speaks to the heart of every man. A line in the song above says, “Tomorrow when the world is free.” Volumes could be written about the longing in the heart of man to be free. Free to do what he wants to do, no one telling him what to do. This leads to the rebellion that brings forth dictators who want to be free to have their will imposed upon others. It is their freedom, not the freedom for every man, that they are after preserving. The following examples come to mind:
Napoleon Bonaparte, dictator, tyrant, “A megalomaniac who wrought greater misery than any man before the coming of Hitler.” * Exiled and dead of stomach cancer.
Adolf Hitler, dictator, aspiring world conqueror. Dead in a bunker.
Saddam Hussein, dictator. Dead by hanging.
A day is coming when a man the Bible calls Anti-Christ, will attempt take over the world and when it appears that he may succeed he will be killed. This will be the opportunity, the time that Ha-Satan has waited for, this will finally be the man that he personally can inhabit. At that point Ha Satan will take over his body and this man will appear to rise from the dead having had a mortal wound, the world will be in awe. This is my theory.
“One of its heads seemed to have a mortal wound, but its mortal wound was healed, and the whole earth marveled as they followed the beast.” Revelation 13:3, 13:12 ESV
I called this piece “Theory” because the scripture above speaks of what most consider a system of governments united under a charismatic man, a man who will have the answer to world peace.
In my thinking this perfect man, the Bible calls him 666, will be the ultimate dictator; he will come to power and he will rule by peace. But, that is not the end. It is Ha-Satan who will ultimately rule and demand worship as he takes his seat on the temple mount in Jerusalem declaring that he is God.
Heaven, eons ago, Lucifer rebelled against God and thought to take over His throne. It got him kicked out, and he has been trying to find a human being he could use to take over ever since. Those I list above are only a sample of those who have yielded to him. There is a man in Venezuela at this time who is trying to take over that country, though the majority of the people don’t want it. As time goes on there will be others. Control by one human being over another or others is fostered in Hell.
Every man who has supposed that he could take over the world dies. They are mere human beings not God. Because it is written:
“It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” Hebrews 9:27
Every dictator, every man aspiring to conquer the world, has been initially ruled by a principality of Ha-Satan and should there arise another aspiring to rule the world, he too will die. There is a time line, God alone can make changes and adjustments, it shall be followed to the letter.
God has given evil a space of time to operate in the world against Him and His creation. He has given mankind a space of time to choose whom they will serve. Time is in the hand of God. It is God alone who “changes times and seasons.”
“And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.” Daniel 2:21 NKJV
I Corinthians 10:11 “Now these things happened to them as an example: but they are written down for our instruction on whom the end of the ages has come.” ESV
Therefore, since it is true that God is in control of the time line and the final outcome, what kind of people should we be?
God is God. There is no one like Him. He rules from His throne in Heaven. His Son became the redeemer of mankind, He bought back from Ha-Satan “whosoever will” come to Him in faith; believing that He is the sent one, who paid the price with His own blood not the blood of an animal, mankind can be transferred from the kingdom of darkness, (Ha-Satan) to the Kingdom of Light.
This is Good News!
God bless you with Light. May we never yield to any control but the control of the Spirit of God, that is my prayer for you and me. Amen!
