Struggling Against the Inevitable

the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure. Daniel 2:45

Been watching a series of videos about what some think could be the future. One video purports to show the earth 1,000,000 years in the future. The general theme of them all is a call for us to engage in some activity to prevent what seems to be an inevitable future.

My particular joy is to study the parts of the Bible showing what will take place, regardless of any human (or Satanic) activity.

For those who are determined to help save the world--that is, the people of the world--let me urge them to begin with their own families. Being a Calvinist, I am quite certain that any effort spent trying to make a sheep out of a goat is 100% wasted time.

The same is true of trying to prevent the dissolution of this crumbling world. To many, this may be considered the attitude of a "quitter", even of a negative point of view. As far as trying to go against the revealed word of God, this is certainly true. To strive against what will surely be, is not only folly, it is Satanic.

I can hear the voices that say, "But it would not be inevitable if we all tried real hard to prevent it." This is the cry of those who have not read Daniel chapter 2, or Romans chapter 9. It is so relaxing to understand that God has made plans that will be fulfilled, no matter what.

We have been educated in a system that teaches things take place through human effort. The Bible tells us of the will of God that brings things about despite human effort. For those who believe that human will is supreme, let me ask, is the world getting better because of it? Are people better now?

How ironic that, long ago, Nebuchadnezzar knew the future of the world and its destruction. He was given, and believed, what most today are in complete ignorance of. The world listens to the lies of Satan, rather than to the revealed truth of God.
