The Coming World Dictator

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on May 17, 2011

There is a world dictator coming. He’s going to defeat all other leaders, kings, presidents, prime ministers, and annihilate their armed forces if they do not immediately and unconditionally surrender to him. He’s going to take over the United States of America, Canada, Britain, Australia, New Zealand, all of Europe, Russia, China, India, all of the countries of the Middle East, Africa, South America, and every other country on earth. Democracy will not exist (even in countries where it does exist now, it’s often become so perverted that it isn’t true democracy anymore anyway – democracy began with honest candidates with principles, that people could either vote for or against; now, candidates are more often political harlots who will promise and “stand for” anything that they think will buy them votes) because he will rule all nations according to his own will.

This coming world dictator is going to do away with the separation of church and state (in the relatively few countries where it now exists) and at the same time abolish Roman Catholicism, Protestantism, Judaism, Mohammadanism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and all other religions and religious “isms,” and enforce his own religion upon the whole world. He will not tolerate rebels and non-conformists; they will be dealt with quickly and with lethal force. Under his control, there will be Law, and there will be Order, in all the world – there will be no more crime, war, hunger, poverty, or social injustice, anywhere.

Does that “world dictator” sound ominous and scary? Relax. He’s the most righteous and loving ruler that this world will ever have. The name of that “dictator” is Jesus Christ.

“For all nations shall come and worship before Thee”

The return of Jesus Christ will happen with overwhelming power. Many great conquerors of the past have claimed to “take on the world,” but all failed. Jesus Christ is going to succeed:

“And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and He that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He doth judge and make war [see Two Very Different Triumphal Entries]. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns; and He had a name written, that no man knew, but He Himself. And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His Name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He hath on His vesture and on His thigh a Name written, King Of kings, and Lord of lords” (Revelation 19:11-16)

The world will have one Ruler, Jesus Christ, who will provide peace and security for all.

“And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of The Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for out of Zion [see Who, What or Where Is Zion? and Daughter of Zion] and shall go forth the Law, and the Word of The Lord from Jerusalem. And He shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.” (Isaiah 2:2-4)

There will be one religion, the worship of the only true God, and “all nations shall come and worship before Thee”:

“And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are Thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are Thy ways, Thou King of saints. Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify Thy Name? For thou only art Holy: for all nations shall come and worship before Thee; for Thy judgments are made manifest.” (Revelation 15:3-4)

May 21, 2011: The Harm That ‘Doomsday’ Will Do

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on May 17, 2011

By now, we’ve no doubt heard that the “Judgment Day” is coming on May 21. The date was calculated by Harold Camping, the leader of an independent Christian ministry called Family Radio Worldwide, which is based in Oakland, Calif. Camping’s date is based on his interpretation of the Bible.

That’s right; according to Mr. Camping, we’re just days away from the Second Coming of Jesus. May 21 is on a Saturday this year, so he encourages everyone to find Jesus before then. He tells us to go to church, talk to our friends, confide in a priest – do whatever we need to do in order to be saved in the Rapture rather than be left behind by Jesus.

After Judgment Day 2011, Jesus will stay on the Earth until October 21, 2011. The Second coming of Jesus will be glorious for some, and unfortunate for others. The initial loss of loved ones in the Rapture will devastate families, cause destruction, and mass chaos. The Times of The End will make the last 7 years of tribulation that recently culminated with the killing of terrorist Osama Bin Laden, look like paradise. End Times will bring trials and tribulations never before imagined by man.

And on May 22, while those of us who think that the May 21 Christians are crazy will probably be laughing or poking fun or explaining what we believe to be biblical reasons why they shouldn’t have put a date on God’s Judgment, the May 21st kids will be facing their “day of reckoning,” waking up to realize that their parents, pastors, and theologies were wrong. Many of those kids will lose something that day. The questions that many of them will ask will get answered with lies and excuses and bad biblical reasoning. Some of them will be angry with God for not bringing about Judgment Day. Some of them will lose their faith and yet be unable to escape it. And some of them will go on like nothing happened and probably end up setting and believing in another “date.”

And there’s nothing funny about that.
