Only The Overcomer Will Be Victorious

1999 is a year of tremendous change. Already we are noticing change in our weather patterns. There are areas totally dry and other areas where the rain is hindering the harvest of crops. The financial systems of the world have become a house of cards with no stability in stock markets or currencies. Even the public fleecing insurance companies are hard pressed, with many going out of business. Banks are fearing a run. The Fed has printed billions of dollars in new currency, preparing for this run. Computers can no longer give the people their account balance. They will lose their deposits. The holiday the banks declared in 1929 will look like a Sunday school picnic compared to the chaos this will cause.

The world would have us believe our weather patterns are caused by "El Nina". The financial problems are blamed on an over-inflated economy. Other problems facing the people include the government involving the United States in military matters all over the world. These will escalate to involve the United States in more military matters which are none of their business. So what is the problem? El Nina, inflated economy, or bad military decisions? The answer is simple. It is God's judgment on a wicked and sinful nation and world. The prophet Jeremiah gives us insight concerning Babylon (the United States).

"A sword is upon their horses, and upon their chariots, and upon all the mingled people that are in the midst of her; and they shall become as women: a sword is upon her treasures; and they shall be robbed." Jeremiah 50:37

Horses and chariots represent the military. God's sword is upon the military. The United States disarms while their enemies continue to arm themselves at an alarming rate. Truly our men have become as women with their earrings, long hair, and willingness to relinquish their role to the weaker sex. Truly a sword is upon their treasures. They have laid their treasures upon the earth to be devoured by rust and corruption. God warns us to lay up our treasures in the Spiritual realm, (heaven). What will the last half of 1999 hold for the worldly people? God informed us through the pen of Moses:

"If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me." Deuteronomy 32:41

God's judgment hand has taken hold of His glittering sword, and He is about to give His enemies their reward. Hold on to your seat. There are rough roads ahead. But praise God His people will come through with colors flying. Changed! Yes! But the overcomers will sing the praises to their God as victors. The beloved John reveals:

"For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith." *** I John 5:4

The spoil belongs to the overcomer. Faith is a fruit of the Spirit. Get close to God and seek all His fruit. These are our tools to overcome.
