The news has been a combination of strange, breathtaking, unsettling, momentous and hard to decipher. (Take a deep breath … and … slowly release.) A mixed bag that ranges from highlighting the futuristic capabilities of human kind to plumbing its sordid and appalling depths.
Violence recently erupted inside the U.S. Capitol and resignations are being tendered left and right. A new 7-foot non-scalable fence is being erected around the Capitol and the president deployed the national guard. A new state called New California was recently proposed, and a new political third party is emerging. Americans are more spiritually divided than ever before and the new lexilogical bête noire is ‘election fraud.’
2020 also heralded new medical innovations; and new vaccines against 2019-nCoV were rapidly developed and are in the initial stage of rollout.
A new branch of the armed forces, The United States Space Force, celebrated one year of existence; and new media outlets are sprouting into existence (e.g., NTD, Newsmax, and OAN) like offshoots of a mature and aging tree called Legacy. These new media offer alternative narratives that are often at odds with more familiar brands.
2020 was a tumultuous year and we don’t know exactly what to expect in the next two weeks at this writing, until presidential inauguration day, January 20th, 2021.
I believe that the next few weeks will be revealing.
One sure thing
The one thing that we can count on—as my many books about angels discuss—is that angels are real and hard at work, just like they were in the beginning. God is not separate from the events in our lives, the events in our world. God—and his representative the angels—are very much involved in the minutiae of our lived experience.
Although the news may be hard to grasp, God’s goodness isn’t. It remains the same forever.
God sends angels to help us get through difficult periods. In fact, God positions angels in preparation for difficult events before they take place. We aren’t alone during such events; we have angels by our side who actively take our side.
Prior to my father abandoning our family which you can read about in The Truth about Angels, Part I, God prepared me by ‘giving’ me my two seminal works, Zion, the Holy City of God and Armageddon—the fate of the lofty nation and beyond.
The events I describe in these two books are biblical and will happen—but not yet.
Contemporary prophetic voices, like that of the late Kim Clement, speak words such as revival, reprieve, favor, and blessing for the period we’re living in now.
Although we are entering into a season of blessing—for America and the world—there will be some ‘birth pains’ as we move into the new era.
What comes next?
You may rightfully wonder, ‘What comes next, and what should I do as events unroll?’
I explain my views about the 2019-nCoV pandemic here.
At this time, we should thank God for his goodness and love; thank our guardian angel; and ask that God’s will be accomplished ‘on earth as it is in heaven.’
God bless and may you see angels,
