One of my favorite scriptures is Isaiah 9:6 & 7 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end.
That and Daniel chapter 2 carry a very clear message. The Kingdom of God has been growing for 2,000 years, and it will never stop growing. Around the world revival is taking place as people lay down their lives for the Gospel. If you are part of His kingdom you have NOTHING to fear! I personally have watched my retirement accounts dwindle. My bank accounts earn .85% interest. My money would be better off in my mattress then in the bank or stocks. But it would be even better off being used for the kingdom of God. I believe that the kingdom of God is going to rise up and take over. Not by force, but by being the only thing that does not collapse. Jesus' disciples expected that to happen and they were disappointed that they were only part of the initial 'stone' that was thrown to take down the kingdoms of this world. We are part of the mountain, but it will soon cover the whole earth.
Daniel2:31 "You looked, O king, and there before you stood a large statue—an enormous, dazzling statue, awesome in appearance. 32 The head of the statue was made of pure gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, 33 its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay. 34 While you were watching, a rock was cut out, but not by human hands. It struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and smashed them. 35 Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were broken to pieces at the same time and became like chaff on a threshing floor in the summer. The wind swept them away without leaving a trace. But the rock that struck the statue became a huge mountain and filled the whole earth."
Daniel 2:44 "In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever. 45 This is the meaning of the vision of the rock cut out of a mountain, but not by human hands—a rock that broke the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver and the gold to pieces."
So get ready! The revival in Florida showed that we are desperate for revival and we will accept it from almost anyone. There is real revival coming, the Kingdom of God is going to rise up like never before. I think we will soon see miracles like never before, like they were in the days that Jesus walked on this earth. God is raising up lots of people, not just one or two, but 12 or even 70 great evangelists, prophets, healers, etc. I am excited about what is happening and what God is doing!
My name is Mario and I'm a Italian50 years old.
I was looking around the web for a way to repair easily a broken-up display, and I stumbled in your blog.
Your led idea is BRILLIANT, and I would make my congratulations.
You solved me a little problem!
But scrolling down I could not resist and read your post about God and the current economical crysis.
I agree with you in most of the points, about the correlations you do with the Holy Script, but I would like to say something.
I'm Christian, and acolite in my local parish Church.
Your expectations with the God's miracles are already under our noses in a DAILY basis.
LIFE ITSELF is a miracle.
There is no written warranty that I will wake up again tomorrow morning; but (hopefully!) happens everiday for me!
But never forget that we, as Christians, will espect "NEW SKYES" and a "NEW EARTH", meaning that the "HOLY KINGDOM" will not come -now- or in the near future neither.
Let alone with the possible "upcominmg miracles".
The only usefulness of the so called "miracles" is to manifest (testify) to the all, that Jesus is Son of God.
i.e. Lazarus is dead again after Jesus miracle; he had not the "eternal life"!!!
(Sorry for my poor english, so forgive me for the grammar/form errors).
There is a risk, reading the Holy Bible in it's immediate significance, since we could fell in the medieval "millenarism" heresy; meaning the advent of the kingdom of the God will be in these days (or years).
We ALL have to follow Jesus's path to the eternity.
Life-suffering-death... then RESURRECTION!!!
All of us!!!
Not only the "good guys!"
There IS a MEANING behind the "suffering" and the "death" and we, as HUMAN and TERRESTRIAL cannot "see" while living here.
And this meaning will be revealed to the "poor" and the "simple".
We haven't asked to come here on earth and we cannot decide to quit life.
Our life is a GOD's gift and it's not up to us to decide when it has to begin nor end.
Nobody asked GOD to come to life.
That's why abortion or euthanasy *are* sins.
So we ALL are waiting.
We all are waiting the God's Kingdom, not only at the end of our personal life, but at the end of the time.
We ALL will resurrect, a resurrection for the *TRUE LIFE* for the GOOD, and to aeternal damnation to the others.
Is that simple!
So while we are here on earth, we have the time to convert oneself; but at the end of the time, there will not "time" anymore.
