PROPHETIC VOICE: Flu Pandemic and the Last Days!

End times, wars, Last days
Among my peers it's considered gauche and extreme to suggest the End Times might be upon us or at least coming soon. Aw, what the heck!

I'm a firm believer that some generation will be alive at the end; it might as well be ours as anyone else. I also believe it's corporately irresponsible for the entire Body of Christ to be in a Rip Van Winkle slumber right up to the end ... sort of like FEMA and DHS just prior to Katrina.

Several contemporary issues have caused me a healthy concern ...
  1. A rise in interest in "religion"
  2. A rise of false teachers and teaching, even among so-called "Christians" (the Great Apostasy)
  3. The rise of evil in the world (can anyone tell me of a nation untouched by aberrant and sinister evil?)
  4. The potential for Muslims to take over the European Union and the possibility a Islamic fulfillment of the prophesied "ten nation confederacy"
  5. The unbelievable rise in man's knowledge and the concurrent rise in human ignorance
  6. The frustration of the elite with those they feel are not worthy of class distiction
  7. The rise in globalism: economically, politically, financially, culturally, socially, spiritually, diplomatically, and communicationally
  8. The ultimate isolation of the USA from the rest of the world as Islam progressively continues its irritating influence in the world
  9. The rise in wars and rumors of wars
  10. The rise of natural catastrophes
  11. And last, but not least, the potential for a global flu pandemic (how better to spread a disease to sinful man but by using one of Your obeient creatures to do it for You?)
I'm not a fear monger but I have posted on this before ... here, here, here, here, here, and here.

Prophetic fulfillments aside, this flu pandemic has the remarkable characteristic of God's hand; whereas stuff like AIDS and cancer don't. God is accustomed to taking the pride of man and using it against him. Has anyone noticed
a time in history when man's pride in self has been at its peak any more than it is now? I didn't think so.

The End Times have to be global if they are to fulfill prophesy. If the stage is not set for such fulfillment, it is at least being cleared for the final act by our longsuffering and sovereign God.
