We see all around us the signs of the coming Day of the Lord multiplying. Can it be long before we are caught up into His presence? 

We are witnessing the office of Antichrist being created in the EU. Within weeks a new super president will be appointed, this seems certain to be the office of Antichrist. The ratification of the Lisbon Treaty will centralize power into the hands of a few, see Revelation 17: 12-13.

"At the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen this December, weeks away, a treaty will be signed,  "Lord Christopher Monckton told a Minnesota Free Market Institute audience recently at Bethel University in St. Paul.  “I have read that treaty,  and what it says is this: That a world government is going to be created.  The word "government" actually appears as the first of three purposes of the new entity.  The second purpose is the transfer of wealth from the countries of the West to Third World countries, in satisfaction of what is called, coyly, "a climate debt," because we have been burning CO2 and they haven't and we've been screwing up the climate.  We haven't been screwing up the climate, but that's the line.  And the third purpose of this new entity, this government  is "enforcement."

Monkton continued,  "How many of you think that the word "election" or "democracy" or "vote" or "ballot" occurs anywhere in the 200 pages of that treaty?  Quite right! It doesn't appear once.  So at last the communists who piled out of the Berlin Wall and into the environmental movement and took over Greenpeace so that my friends who funded it left within a year because they'd captured it. Now the apotheosis is at hand.  They are about to impose a communist world government on the world.  You have a president who has very strong sympathies with that point of view.  He's going to sign.  He'll sign anything.  He's a Nobel peace laureate.  Of course he'll sign it!

We are rushing toward world government faster than we realize!

Paul McGuire in a blog stated, Dr. Francis Schaeffer, warned that as the anarchy increased in our world due to moral relativism, that totalitarianism would rise to control the chaos. Schaeffer issued that warning over 30 years ago and said we had a brief window in which to preserve our religious freedoms. Dr. Schaeffer believed that the greatest contributing factor to the rise of totalitarianism was the fact that the Evangelical Church was accommodating to a growing humanist culture and not standing for Biblical truth. Nowhere is that more apparent than in the “Emergent Church Movement” and in the “Seeker-Friendly Movement,” but it is epidemic in the Evangelical culture as a whole. Tragically, what Schaeffer predicted would happen in the church and the culture is now happening before our eyes. Schaeffer stated that it did not matter whether or not the totalitarianism came from the left or the right because the results would be the same.

Just in the last few weeks we have seen this scenario of a totalitarian world Empire begin to rapidly unfold.

This week the Vatican announced it was making it easier for Anglicans to enter the Catholic Church, even making concessions to them in some areas. The one world church is looming everywhere you look.

The greatest sign of all is what is happening in Israel, as the world is coming together to isolate Israel. Talk of an imposed settlement on Israel is growing. That sets the stage for Antichrist to come on the scene and do just that.

The Lord is at hand,!  Jesus is coming!  Some will be ashamed before Him at  his coming, do not be among that number!  If you are not saved, NOW IS THE TIME, come to Christ in repentance and faith now.
