Back To Square One

You've probably noticed. Our world's IQ, insanity quotient, has gone crackers, crazy, gonzo, bonkers, wacko of late. Pick your adjective. And this trend seems to escalate with each new sunrise. When looking through the prism of Biblical prophecies, our world has been changed in fundamental ways since 9/11. What we are witnessing is the steady emergence, the rising up of the sixth empire, Babylon the Great of Revelation. This story began with a prophecy in the book of Genesis, when Isaac’s wife Rebekah was pregnant. “And the LORD said to her, Two nations are in your womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from within you; the one shall be stronger than the other, the older shall serve the younger.” [Gen. 25:23]. Today, both these different manner of people, you included, are at the heart and core of the prophecies of Revelation unfolding before our eyes on a daily basis.

Riding Rogue Ponies Into The Apocalypse, The Curious Elephant

At its most fundamental level, the story contained in the Biblical record is quite simple to understand as the Flow Chart at the back of the book shows. [Also see the chart at the bottom of the Feature article, A Tale Of Two Covenants]. It is totally and completely related to the two covenants, the one made with Abraham and his Seed, Christ and the law covenant made with the children of Israel and the relationship between them both through Christ.

Bum’s Rush

It all began with Adam and Eve. For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to the garden of low-hanging fruit. Of course in Matthew 7, it reads a little bit differently, “For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction.” The low-hanging fruit part of the sentence above refers to the fact that in our society it’s made virtually effortless for us to take the path of least resistance, chasing the passions of the flesh, which, being contrary to the Spirit of God, leads to destruction and death. It is this path of false promise, as Aldous Huxley pointed out in Brave New World, of phantom comfort and happiness, rather than truth and beauty, the high-hanging fruit, that we ardently pursue.
