Diving into the Cultural Cesspool By Terry James Billy Graham once told of being invited…
One Minute to Midnight
By Daymond Duck
On Nov. 3, 2021, Franklin Graham was talking about the recent G-20 Summit on Climate Change and UK Prime Min. Boris Johnson’s claim that it is one minute to midnight for a world climate catastrophe.
He noted that the Bible gives many examples of climate catastrophes that God sent as judgments for sin (40 days and nights of rain during the Great Flood, 7 years of drought and famine during the 7 fat years and 7 lean years, and 3 ½ years of drought in Elijah’s day — Gen. 6-8; Gen. 41; I Kings 17-18).
Graham said, “Boris Johnson said we are ‘one minute to midnight’ as it relates to climate change. I believe we are one minute to midnight — not regarding climate change, but on God’s clock, when He will bring judgment on those who have rejected Him and His Son, Jesus Christ.”
Here are some recent stories that seem to indicate that the world is at one minute to midnight on God’s prophetic clock.
One, critics say the purpose of Biden’s $1.7 trillion Build Back Better Act (the Univ. of Penn. Warton School of Business estimates that the true amount could exceed $4.26 trillion) is to fund the fundamental change of America (weaken America for entry into the coming world government).
The only thing that has prevented the passage of the bill is the opposition of some Democrats.
Last week, this writer reported that the Chairman of the Republican Study Committee (RSC) that has reviewed what is known about the bill up to this point said it includes 31 policy changes that will “wreck America.”
On Nov. 3, 2021, it was reported that Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin asked, “How can I in good conscience vote for a bill that proposes massive expansions of social programs when vital programs like Social Security and Medicare face insolvency, and benefits could start being reduced as soon as 2026 in Medicare and 2033 in Social Security?” He asked, “How does that make sense? He said, “I don’t think it does.”
This Democrat was saying Biden’s massive spending bill is a threat to the financing of Medicare and Social Security. He doesn’t seem to understand that the globalists want to replace Medicare and Social Security with universal healthcare.
Update One: On Nov. 3, 2021, it was reported that Biden’s Build Back Better Act includes a government takeover of the U.S. school systems, including preschool.
Many believe the W. VA election signaled that parents want the federal government out of America’s school systems, but the Biden administration is seeking legislation to take them over against the parents’ wishes.
Update Two: On Nov. 5, 2021, the House passed Biden’s $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill and temporarily scheduled a vote on his $1.75 trillion-and-growing Build Back Better (transform America) Act for Nov. 15, 2021.
Two, concerning famine: on Nov. 4, 2021, it was reported that natural gas is used to produce fertilizer that farmers need to increase crop yields, but the soaring price of natural gas is making the production of fertilizer too expensive.
Some fertilizer producers have started shutting down their factories. The Green New Deal and Supply Chain Crisis are adding to the problem.
The reduced carbon dioxide emissions demanded by the Green New Deal fanatics are driving up the cost of fertilizer production, and the Supply Chain Crisis is making it more difficult for fertilized distributors to get the fertilizer to their vendors.
The result is that food production will decline, fertilizer and food prices will soar, and more expensive food will increase hunger and death.
More: China produces almost one-third of the world’s phosphate, and it has been reported that China has banned all exports of phosphates during the first half of 2022.
More: Biden could solve this by opening the oil wells he shut down and save money for every person (rich or poor, black, white, or whatever) that buys gasoline for a vehicle, pays a utility bill, buys groceries, etc., but he will not.
Three, concerning wickedness, lying, deceit, and corruption: on Nov. 4, 2021, it was reported that Special Counsel John Durham has indicted a Russian analyst with ties to the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign on charges of lying about Donald Trump.
One news organization suggested that the Steele Dossier should be called the Clinton Dossier (because it was a dirty trick orchestrated by Hillary’s campaign). The investigation cost U.S. taxpayers about $40 million.
Update: On Nov. 9, 2021, it was reported that Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager (he was also Clinton’s communications director and foreign policy advisor) was exchanging e-mails with the lawyer that has been indicted for lying to the FBI about Pres. Trump. And Clinton’s campaign manager is now Pres. Biden’s White House National Security Advisor.
As this writer understands this somewhat complicated story, Clinton’s campaign manager was communicating with a lawyer who was allegedly lying to the FBI and allegedly feeding false information to the media, and now Clinton’s campaign manager is Biden’s White House National Security Advisor.
At least one commentator is saying James Comey and the FBI were either complicit in this scam or they were incompetent.
If people that were in on the fake Russian Collusion story are in the Biden administration, how can the truth prevail?
Four, in 2018, Pres. Trump moved the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
In 2019, Pres. Trump closed the U.S. consulate for the Palestinians in Jerusalem.
Pres. Biden promised to reopen the Palestinian consulate and seems determined to do it even though it would be illegal without Israeli permission.
On Nov. 6, 2021, Israeli Prime Min. Bennett, and Foreign Min. Lapid openly opposed it.
Bennett said, “There is no place for an American consulate that serves the Palestinians in Jerusalem.”
Lapid said, “If the Americans want to open a consulate in Ramallah, we have no problem with that, but sovereignty in Jerusalem belongs to one country, Israel.”
Jerusalem is a cup of trembling and burdensome stone for the whole world, just as the Bible says it will be during the Tribulation Period.
FINALLY, are you Rapture Ready?
If you want to be rapture ready and go to heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3). God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin-born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried, and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.
