This week in the Middle East, an unprecedented number of soldiers (340,000), tanks and airplanes from Saudi Arabia and other Gulf nations are gathering in the very far north as a show of force against Syria, Iran and Russia. Turkey and NATO have their parts to play in God’s prophetic time clock. The Bible tells of a time for war and a time for piece in Solomon’s book of Ecclesiastes.  Who will put on the brakes? What nations will run full tilt ahead with machines of destruction and armed nuclear warheads to back their demands?

Psalms 9 contains a warning for “…those nations that forgot about you.” Man’s plans for war without Godly counsel is arrogant…destructive…and thereby ungodly…which is wicked. This verse  contains a clear warning of choices to be made and loyalties with “The wicked will go down to the world of the dead to be with those nations that forgot about you.” (Ps. 9:17) This continues in Ps. 10:13 with “The wicked don’t respect you. In their hearts they say, ‘God won’t punish us!’ ” Finally in Ps. 9:5 comes the ending: “You warn the nations and destroy evil people; you wipe out their names forever and ever. Our enemies are destroyed completely for all time. Their cities are torn down, and they will never be remembered again.”

God has a timetable for world events. He is not surprised, ever. He knows what countries and leaders plan “in secret.” Psalms 11:4 assures us believers that “The Lord is sitting in his sacred temple on his throne in heaven. He knows everything we do because he sees us all.”

All the books, learning, religious thought and choices presented to people come down to ONLY 2 CHOICES IN THE END: 1) God’s narrow path through his words contained in the Holy Bible which include faith in His only son, Jesus, for salvation, or 2) the broad path that leads to destruction which includes everything else.

Your adversary, the devil, does not want you to realize that all the seeming choices just narrow down to good vs. evil, belief vs. rebellion. It is so much more glamorous to think that YOU have found the wisdom of the ages in New Age, wiccan, shamanism, atheism, agnosticism, Christian Science, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc., etc. in an almost non-ending list.

How narrow minded you say? God, himself, said the way to life is narrow and many people miss it. God loves you. God loves the world. He provided a way to reconcile our naturally wicked hearts to himself: “God loved the people of this world so much that he gave his only son, so that everyone who has faith in him will have eternal life and never really die.” John 3:16. What if this verse corresponded to March (3rd month) 2016. What if time is really shortening for you to choose? Join me on the narrow path. I really want to spend eternity with you by my side!
