gray clouds on the horizon

i spend a couple hours last evening reading and watching political and economic news.  in the US, the news is mostly bad, and some worse.  it seems a majority of our politicians are disingenuous – selling out our country for the price of campaign contributions and political pressure.

my assumption is that the bible is true and that the horrors of the last days will be beyond what i care to think about.  we can fight, and it’s our responsibility to, but we won’t get final victory until a guy shows up on a white horse.

then this morning i found myself in the last chapter of  Isaiah:

For behold, the LORD will come in fire And His chariots like the whirlwind, To render His anger with fury, And His rebuke with flames of fire. For the LORD will execute judgment by fire And by His sword on all flesh, And those slain by the LORD will be many. “Those who sanctify and purify themselves to go to the gardens, Following one in the center, Who eat swine’s flesh, detestable things and mice, Will come to an end altogether,” declares the LORD. “For I know their works and their thoughts; the time is coming to gather all nations and tongues. And they shall come and see My glory. “I will set a sign among them and will send survivors from them to the nations: Tarshish, Put, Lud, Meshech, Tubal and Javan, to the distant coastlands that have neither heard My fame nor seen My glory. And they will declare My glory among the nations. “Then they shall bring all your brethren from all the nations as a grain offering to the LORD, on horses, in chariots, in litters, on mules and on camels, to My holy mountain Jerusalem,” says the LORD, “just as the sons of Israel bring their grain offering in a clean vessel to the house of the LORD. “I will also take some of them for priests and for Levites,” says the LORD. – Isaiah 66:15-21 (NASB)

So the good news is, there will be survivors.
