What the World Is Coming To

Michael Beck

“Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.” (Joel 3:13,14)

There will be no “undecideds” in the future. The times will dictate where each person stands. There will be no “fence sitters.” A global referendum has been in the works for millennia. The mystery of lawlessness has been at work since Adam’s fall, but will be manifested in unmistakable clarity before the return of Christ. The choice will be clear. There will be no more gray area. All will be black and white. And the issue at hand? Whose are you? Are you God’s; or, are you your own?

What is the world coming to? It is coming to the place where it is ready to finally and fully declare its allegiance. The whole world will soon be given the clear opportunity to decide who they want to worship. Those who choose to worship themselves, will also worship Lucifer, who is the archetype of self-worship. “And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast” (Rev. 13:4) The beast, or the antichrist, will be the human personification of Satan. He will represent complete rebellion against the God of heaven. His defiant statement will be: “Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.” (Psalm 2:3) But He who sits in the heavens can only laugh. The Lamb will become the Lion, and will arise from His seat at the right hand of the Father. He will return to this earth, being “revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Thes. 1:8)

Multitudes, multitudes are now in the valley of decision. As Elijah said to a conflicted populace in his day: “How long halt ye between two opinions?” (1 Kings 18:21) Are you on the fence? God is going to help you make up your mind. Strong delusion will be sent. All those who have not bowed their knee to God will bow their knee to His nemesis. The signs of the times are here. The day of the Lord is near. This is where we have come to – you are either God’s person, or you are your own person. And if you belong to yourself, you also belong to Satan, for time and eternity.
