Song of Solomon 2:2
In the Last Days 2nd Peter 3:3

The Twentieth Century should have taught humanity how it is the world could spin out of control and be led into two World Wars, when a tyrannical ruler seizes power. But sorry to say the worst is yet to come, and here in the first decades of the Twenty-First Century.

The current woes of society will lead to an Antichrist. The “Global Leader” the Bible speaks of as “that Man of Sin,” as it is written in 2nd Thessalonians 2:3, “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin revealed the son of perdition.” The consequences thereof is what happens when the Bible-believing Christian becomes enemy number one in this: New Oppressive World Order.

Here is the story of one such young woman in her mid-twenties, whose horrific crimes against humankind is her love for the Lord and her belief in the Bible as it is written. She is but one of many and through the tremendous loss of family and love. With the long arm of the law ramping up a complete surveillance society, she manages to keep the faith and, along the way, finds the faith of others are everywhere, and as it is written in Genesis 50:20, “But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.”


1: Closing my Bible, I began to reflect on Eli’s part in the story and how it was that without even knowing the reason for Hannah’s many tears of heartache, Eli spoke only words of comfort and hoped in the Lord. He the Lord granted Hannah’s request, and I knew without a doubt, I could and always should go to the Lord for everything, which absolutely included, and most importantly, my heart’s desires.

2: All to soon the truck began to roll down the street where I lived, and just when I was about to drown in my own tears of sorrows. I saw the police beginning to leave my home. As their vehicles began to depart one by one, I found some peace of mind in knowing my family was left alone, and at least for now they were out of danger. But as my refuge from this nasty and cruel world began to get narrower and narrower, the reality of a frightening future set in. With despair now lingering in the air ready to set in like cement, excessive tears of mourning began to roll. Left to my own devices, I used a time-honored but crude method from my childhood and began wiping away the grief from my cheeks by using my shirt sleeves. But I came to learn right quick, this was only the beginning of my indignities.

3: I nodded yes, and before I had a change of heart, I found the gumption to pull myself away from his arms of devotion. After I quickly made my way back to the exit door, I now stood poised and ready once more with my hand ready to press down onto the door handle. At this most critical juncture, Caleb decided to call out to me once again. Upon hearing the love in his voice, it enabled me as of yet to sever the ties that bind and thereafter to once again turn back around to face him. He began pleading with me to have a change of heart.
