Let’s say you are invited to someone’s house, and you accept that invitation. When you arrive, they offer you a cup of coffee. Now, for the sake of this poorly written letter, let’s say that you accept the offering of what my beautiful wife calls that “smells bad, tastes bad” liquid, you sit and converse with your host while he drinks his coffee, and you let yours rest where it is.
Now, courtesy and curiosity would prompt your host to ask you if you changed you mind about that coffee, or perhaps it was not to your liking. I would ask you to contemplate this next sentence for a moment, our guest’s response. “It is my coffee, and I have done with it as I chose to do.” That is going to change for billions of people on this planet someday, perhaps sooner than we know.
The awareness of this truth to those of and in the world began about two years ago when an advertisement spread, not by accident, around the world, “You will own nothing, and be happy.” In a way that is more than difficult to understand properly at times, 2 Corinthians 4:4 stands as truth, “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” What he desires to do to the inhabitants of it is to remove all comfort, all convenience, to all, the one that desires to be worshipped is the one that is the most needy.
The other relevant statement started by the same people and now carried in the back pocket of nearly every government official on the planet is “Build Back Better.” “Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall.” (Psalm 35:8)
As born-again believers, those that have been blessed by the Lord with eyes to see and ears to hear, these days have been expected for quite some time, in fact almost two thousand years now. We already own nothing, save for Him who died for all, for in Christ we find our all. We have forsaken the world, if not in accumulated physical items, but in our minds and hearts. “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” (Gal. 2:20) As for the building back better, we understand full well for something to be rebuilt, it must be destroyed first.
The people on the earth at that time will call those days great trouble, those who will be saved during that time will know it as the Tribulation period. Many will lose everything, even their lives, they will witness horrors we can only read about in the Word of God. But some will understand full well what those who are empowering demonically the people in the World Economic Forum, and those two statements that are known around the world then, and many will live, and die by this verse, “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” (Phil. 1:21) For this is written about them in Revelation 12:11, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
“They,” as they are called, want to strip the people on earth of their right, given by God to all men, of your free will. Granted, man has already set a myriad of laws against himself, enforced at times in a righteous manner, and some even written with the safety of mankind in mind, we have always had a very limited free will, no matter what nation you live in. And that is the point of this letter, the fact that if you have indeed been crucified with Jesus Christ, then you gave up your free will a long time ago. “Thy will be done” is the answer to the world in these days, those who are fearful of what is approaching, and those who not only look forward to them, but are implementing them, “Your life is his with Christ in God.” (Col. 3:3) They can’t take anything away from us when we have given all to Christ, we belong to God through Jesus Christ, He may as our guest did with his coffee, choose to do with us as He desires.
