Nativity 2.0

Greetings brothers and sisters in the LORD and Merry Christmas to you all!

Things are obviously getting quite interesting.  Russia is on the cusp of a major invasion of Ukraine.  Likewise, China is preparing for an assault on Taiwan, bolstered by its recent political conquest of Hong Kong and the seeming lack of resistance from the U.S. leadership and military.  More importantly, from a prophetic perspective we’ve been witnessing an unfolding Esther redux over the past several decades as Israel and Iran (Persia) have come closer and closer to a full-scale armed conflict.  The Iranian junta has been developing the capacity to launch a nuclear strike on the Jewish state.  And now the modern gallows—in the form of nuclear warheads—are finally on the cusp of completion.  By most estimates Iran will have enough nuclear material for 1–2 bombs in just a few short weeks.  It has taken decades to reach this crescendo, but we are finally there.  Israel is prepping for a strike and Iran is prepping for a counterattack.  It’s all about to go down.

And from the angle of the Church’s global safety and the burgeoning beast system, the unified global response to the COVID-19 pandemic (especially the Omicron variant) is growing more concordant and Orwellian by the day.  It’s not accurate to say a global system is coming.  A global system is already here.  Now.  We may have grown accustomed to international institutions like the United Nations, World Health Organization, World Bank, IMF, International Court of Justice, and International Criminal Court, but remember that these vehicles of global governance are completely novel in history.  They came about in this generation, contemporaneous with the establishment of the nation of Israel.  The COVID-19 crisis has been used by literal globalist villains like Schwab, Gates, and Soros to give these institutions “teeth” in the lives of individuals around the world.  And there is no putting the genie back in the bottle.  This isn’t primarily the fault of Satan, the presumed Illuminati (in actuality, spiritual forces in the heavenly realms: see Eph. 6:12Lk. 4:5–6), or even Schwab, Gates, and Soros.  They are just symptoms.  Symptoms that will, of course, be justly and severely dealt with, I assure you.  But just symptoms nonetheless.  Mankind itself is the culprit.  Mankind continues to put the wicked in charge.  Mankind continues to rebel against a loving God who offers total pardon and eternal life at no cost.  Mankind is still divided between the minority children of light (the current restraining force in world affairs) and the majority children of darkness who reject and hate the light.

As a result of the response to COVID-19 (not the virus itself), we’re now seeing skyrocketing inflation, collapsing supply chains, and a global economy on the brink.  The bomb is primed to blow.

But if we step back for a minute, it all makes perfect sense.  The timing is perfect.  Of course we would see global governance in the same generation we witnessed Israel’s reemergence.  Of course we would see unprecedented lawlessness.  Of course the technology and infrastructure for the Mark of the Beast, as well as its societal acceptance, would be present with us today.  Of course Israel and the Church would come under imminent threat—the former via Iran, and the latter via the 2020–2022 Big Brother clampdown.  The end of the age has come.  And by any measure we are right on the cusp of the 2,000-year anniversary of every single major event in the life of Christ, as well as the establishment of the Church.  That’s a fact.  Consider:

The initiation of Jesus’ ministry…

circa 27–29 AD + 2,000 years = 2027–2029 AD

Jesus’ death, resurrection, ascension, and the founding of the Church on Pentecost…

circa 31–33 AD + 2,000 years = 2031–2033 AD

In the Gospels we read of the nativity of Christ the Head.  Signs in the heavens forewarned and confirmed it.  The magi followed the star.  They saw the signs.  And a ruthless and wicked king set about to destroy the Child to stop the fulfillment of prophecy.  He ended up murdering a multitude of young boys in a fruitless effort to stop Christ.

Right here, right now, we are living through the nativity of Christ’s Body.  We are the body.  Signs in the heavens forewarned and confirmed it.  We who are watching know the signs and see the signs (especially from November 2016 through February 2021).  A ruthless dragon has set about to destroy us—the mystical man-child of Revelation 12 (cf. Gal. 3:29Eph. 2:15).  This dragon, who has positioned his global system to devour the Church, is about to be cast down.

The nativity story of Christ the Head is similar to our own nativity story in another key facet: we both escape.  Christ was raptured to Egypt to escape the rage of a deadly king.  We will be raptured to Heaven to escape the rage of the deadly serpent (see 1 Thess. 1:104:17–5:9Rev. 3:8–104:1–412:510–12).

Have you ever wanted to be a fly on the wall to witness the great stories of the Bible?  Would you want to go back in time to see the Star of Bethlehem, or witness angels announce Christ’s coming to the shepherds?  Would you want to behold the newborn babe in swaddling clothes?  Well you don’t have to wish: you’re living in a Bible story right now—one prophesied 2,000 years ago.  And if you belong to God through faith in His Son, you’re more than just a fly on the wall.  You’re actually the protagonist this go-round.
