Should We Be Bracing Ourselves For “The Beginning Of Sorrows”?

Do you LOVE America?


    This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The End of the American Dream. 

    If things are so wonderful, then why do so many people feel a deep sense of unease about what is ahead?  I think that the reason why our society is so obsessed with apocalyptic movies and television shows is because most of us realize on some level that we are living in an apocalyptic generation.

    As I have been documenting in my articles over the last several months, the clock is ticking for humanity.  If we continue to do things the way we have been doing them, our society will inevitably collapse.  Even now, virtually all of our systems are exhibiting signs of failure, and yet most of us continue to live our lives as if the party will never end.

    But it will end, and deep inside most of us know this.

    So how close are we to that point?  Nearly 2000 years ago, Jesus detailed some of the things that we should expect to see as conditions turn apocalyptic

    And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

    For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

    All these are the beginning of sorrows.

    Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

    Could it be possible that “the beginning of sorrows” is nearly upon us?

    Without a doubt, we are living in a time when there are lots of rumors of wars.  Russia and Ukraine nearly went to war this month, and if that would have happened the U.S. would have definitely gotten involved, and that could have led us directly into World War 3.

    Meanwhile, the U.S. and China are now closer to military conflict than they have been at any point since the end of the Korean War.  Taiwan is the main source of tension at the moment, but there are other flashpoints that could cause war between our two nations to erupt as well.

    In the last 48 hours, however, developments in Israel have taken center stage globally.  Dozens of rockets were fired into Israel on Saturday night, and terror groups are warning that “worse was still to come”

    Two terror groups in Gaza took responsibility on Saturday for the salvos of rockets fired at Israel overnight, saying the attack was in response to violent clashes in Jerusalem in recent days and that worse was still to come.

    Fatah’s Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine’s Abu Ali Mustapha Brigades said that they were behind the 36 rockets fired at Israel, linking the attack to the unrest in and around the Old City.

    Everyone knows that a major war is going to erupt in the Middle East at some point.

    It is just a matter of time.

    Switching gears, we continue to see large earthquakes shake our planet at a very alarming rate, and more volcanoes that were once very quiet continue to roar to life.

    On Sunday morning, it was Japan’s turn to experience a major eruption

    The Sakurajima volcano in southwestern Japan erupted on early Sunday, sending a column of smoke over 2.3 kilometers above the crater, the weather agency said.

    Following the eruption at 1:09 a.m., the Japan Meteorological Agency issued an eruption alert, urging people in the cities of Kagoshima and Tarumizu in Kagoshima Prefecture to protect themselves from potential impact of the volcanic activity.

    Of course those that follow my work on a regular basis know that the volcano in Japan that I really have my eye on is Mt. Fuji.  When it finally blows, the death toll will be off the charts.

    Needless to say, “pestilence” has been a major theme over the past year as well.  We are being told that the number of new coronavirus cases just hit a brand new record high globally, and it appears that this pandemic will be with us for the foreseeable future.

    But if we really are moving into “the beginning of sorrows”, we should expect even more “pestilences” to strike the globe, and they will be even worse than what we have experienced so far.

    As for “famines”, the good news is that nobody in the United States is starving at the moment.

    But I did just publish an article in which I talked about how global food prices are now soaring, and this is causing hunger to rise very rapidly in impoverished areas of the planet.

    Coming into this year, the head of the UN’s World Food Program did warn that we would soon see “famines of biblical proportions”, and unfortunately we are well on the way to that actually happening.

    On top of everything else, the global persecution of Christians continues to rise.

    The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom just released a report that documented many of the specifics of this rising trend, and one expert that worked on the report stated that “Christians are being persecuted around the world at a pace not seen since the first century”.

    Is it just a coincidence that all of these things are happening at the same time?

    At this point, even some of the top faith leaders in the entire nation are acknowledging that we have entered a very ominous time.  For example, just consider a statement that James Dobson just made

    “Though I am not a prophet, it appears to me that divine judgment has befallen our nation. The evil one, Satan (who always has only been able to operate within parameters permitted by the Lord, e.g., Job 1:7, 12), appears to be unleashing his assault on our culture with even greater ferocity. He is creating chaos in our cities and schools, and is stalking the halls of government. It is as though, because we have replaced the truth with a lie, God has given us over to a reprobate mind. (Romans 1:25, 28),” Dobson explained.

    “Why do I draw such a conclusion? It is because our nation is divided into warring camps, with violence and pestilence plaguing the land. Sixty-two million babies have been murdered in cold blood, and hundreds of millions of additional federal dollars have been allocated to expand the unborn holocaust. And the institutions of marriage and the family are under siege. Our birthrate is falling, and our children are being taught hate and sexual perversion in our government schools. How can a holy God look upon such debauchery and stay His righteous hand? He cannot.”

    And during a recent interview with Todd Starnes, Franklin Graham came to a very similar conclusion

    “Christians need to get on their knees and pray that God would intervene and somehow save this nation or give us more time because I believe judgment is coming,” said Graham. “I really do, Todd, I think God’s judgment is coming.”

    Are they right?

    Have we really reached the point of no return?

    People have been sounding the alarm for decades, but up to now, we have always been given more time to turn things around.

    Unfortunately, at some point, we will completely run out of time, and many believe that day is fast approaching.

      1. The normalcy bias prevents most people from seeing the obvious. Human history has been filled with conflict, yet we have millions of Americans that think extreme tolerance of bad behavior has no consequences. Ideas like “universal income” for those that don’t want to work. Ideas like “super citizens” (evidenced by the idea of hate crimes) that are associated with certain ethnicities & sexual identities. Ideas like “big brother & one-world-governance” that promotes centralized control. The chaos promoted by Antifa & BLM are the result of at least one generation of Americans that canNOT place things in historical context.

        In addition, the Demonrat idea of throwing money at problems while disguising their payback to supporters in “stimulous bills” does NOT end well.

      2. Seems now that the much of the free world is seeing the vaccines for what they are, the globalist’s under CCP control will shift gears to get their mark on the hands of the population.

        Next up will likely be a fake cyber pandemic that will turn off all existing financial systems. No one will be able to buy and sell until a reset occurs. Repent now and obey the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ while you still can. There is nothing left here for you except misery, the mark and everlasting torment.

      3. In a work yes. The book of revelation is at hand. repent , go to confession , forget the quibbling political stuff, the is over. join the catholic or orthodox church and prepare. The SPXX is the best, . Have faith, the road will be hard but if you keep the faith , the reward in heaven will be great. seek first the kingdom of heaven.

      4. We have been on a slow train to hell for awhile now.

        The speed of that train now is hitting 3rd. gear.

        By 2025 we will see it in overdrive nearing the cliff of damnation!

        GOD help us all

      5. It is happening. I dream about it, I have urges to seek more spiritual guidance than ever before. I know this is true. We need to repent, teach our children and prepare. The book of Enoch, not in the canonized Bible but greatly respected, shows we are in the Apostate Generation, which will be followed by a Sword, Righteous Judgement and then and only then, All the Powers of Heaven will shine forever.

      6. My stance on moral vices has always been that they fall under God’s permissive will, when practiced with discretion and decorum, but not that you should name a literal battleship after Harvey Milk.

        I would like to think that you could be the kind of kid, who watched all the movies and got all the toys, and grow up to be highly satisfied and well-adjusted. I have just never personally seen a real-life example of someone who was a friend of the world and not an enemy of God.

        If you were dreaming about a situation, such as this, 25yrs ago, I hope that you have written it down to the small details, that were confusing you, because, now, they will make alot more sense.

      8. Look that word sorrows up in your Strong’s concordance. It means labor pains, like a woman in trevail. Birth of a new earth age.

      9. Anyone, and I mean anyone who listens to Franklin Graham is a moron…he is the very one who told Christians to trust in a shot in the arm, instead of trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ….

        Now let me drop some heavy truth on you…read on if you dare…

        This country is systemically evil…and lets ask why is evil abounding…the answer might surprise you…read on if you dare…

        Unless this country returns to fearing the Lord God…you ain’t gonna see what we deem as normal…

        Proverbs 16:4 The Lord hath made all things for Himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.

        “The church is the moral compass of society.”
        John Adams stated while he was our President, “The church is the moral compass of society.” But in order to remain a true and faithful compass, the church must remain separate and independent of the influences of that society, particularly its civil government. It must be a “free-church.” Should the church become subordinate, or in any way controlled or co-opted by the civil government (a “State-Church” system), it can no longer effectively serve as that society’s moral compass. Unless it is respected, no one will listen to what it has to say.

        Now this does not mean we as a Christian are to not be involved in politics, otherwise we should not be voting or should there be a Christian who holds a political office…this means we are not be influenced by the ways of the world, yet we are to influence the world by being salt and light…

        The church had the protection of the First Amendment and yet around 1954 LBJ offered the church free tax exemption, which they had by the first amendment…yet the majority of pastors jumped on board and in doing so they tied there hands and must adhere to what their new master, the state and IRS has deemed appropriate. They can no longer speak out openly against the evil of the day or endorse a God fearing political candidate, before 1954 the church was deeply involved in politics after 1954 and signing up for handcuffs they now risk losing the their assets….”In Caesars Grip” is a book to start with, Peter Kershaw goes in depth with the ins and outs of what it means to be a 501c3 non profit….there is much more, but i will leave you with this so it may stir you and seek the truth of the non profit churches and how the modern day pharisee has placed a muzzle on themselves. do your research and then ask the so called pastor to explain why they needed the protection of the state over the protection of God and watch him try to explain it away….or watch them get HIGHLY upset for you asking question….most pastors today are self appointed hirelings and are only in it for the love of money. Also today the puppets in the pulpit will twist Romans 13 for their agenda…another good area of digging is the FEMA clergy (pastors) And people wonder why God is angry with the world and bringing down His mighty hammer of wrath as the blacksmith pounds the hot iron on the anvil….the children of God have went the way of Balaam…and serve Baal and money.

        Deadly Silent….99.9% of churches today are 501c3 churches and they do not serve God….God is removing the lamp stands from more and more dead hypocrite churches, He is calling us back to what we should have never left….the intimate love of Christ that is centered with a home church….and I don’t mean taking the building to the home…I mean good ole worship of the Lord that is lead by the Holy Spirit and not the the head of one man standing in the pulpit….I encourage each and every one of my brothers and sisters to read the book “Pagan Christianity” by Frank Viola….it will set you on a path of where 99% of our current day worship services come from…they are all rooted in the days of the early pagans and their rituals….also read “In Caesars Grip” by Peter Kershaw to see how the puppets of the day that are in the pulpit have muzzled themselves and can no longer call out the evil of the world…all in the name of filthy lucre. Brethren, we have brought the anger of the Lord upon us, we have no one to blame but ourselves….
        So Christians want to blame the blm, the homosexuals, the political parties and just about damn near everyone else, but oh don’t lay it at the door step of the church…

        But yet, I say the blame, lays squarely at the door of the church….the church over the last 60 plus years has become deadly silent in a sinful nation. They no longer speak out and call a sin a sin…yet that would mean they would have to acknowledge the sin in their own buildings…and who is to blame here, I say its the puppet pastor and his flock of goonies, the yes men elders he plants in his synagogue of Satan.

        When is the last time you heard a sermon on sin, hell or God’s wrath? 99.9% of the services today are a mini rock concert with little three point sermon tossed in….your puppet pastor, the modern day pharisee is feeding your flesh and tickling your ear.

        The church today no longer does her job as what she was called to be by the Lord, the salt and light, the salt is tasteless and the light is dim as a one wick candle….yet they blame the heathen world and shake their fist at God.

        Until the bride of Christ repents and returns to doing what she is called to do, the Lord will continue to bring down the hammer of His indignation upon His bride as a blacksmith brings down the hammer on the glowing iron on the hardened anvil.

        Buckle up boys and girls….Now let me share with you what God directed me to…

        Jeremiah 5:14
        Therefore, thus says the Lord, the God of hosts,
        “Because you have spoken this word,
        Behold, I am making My words in your mouth fire
        And this people wood, and it will consume them.

        Jeremiah 15:6-7
        6 “You who have forsaken Me,” declares the Lord,
        “You keep going backward.
        So I will stretch out My hand against you and destroy you;
        I am tired of relenting!
        7 “I will winnow them with a winnowing fork
        At the gates of the land;
        I will bereave them of children, I will destroy My people;
        They did not repent of their ways.

        For those who know God, will say this is the Old Testament. Yet I encourage you to turn to Hebrews 10:26-31…John 3:18…John 3:36…just a few in the New Testament…and oh there is so many more I could direct you too…as for the Old Testament, I will direct you to Psalm 9:17…where it speaks of all Nations who forget God…scripture is very plain and direct.

        Today you have been warned!!!

        Amos 3:6-7
        6 If a trumpet is blown in a city will not the people tremble?
        If a calamity occurs in a city has not the Lord done it?
        7 Surely the Lord God does nothing Unless He reveals
        His secret counsel To His servants the prophets.

        Jeremiah 15:1-2
        Judgment Must Come

        1 Then the Lord said to me, “Even though Moses and Samuel were to stand before Me, My heart would not be with this people; send them away from My presence and let them go! 2 And it shall be that when they say to you, ‘Where should we go?’ then you are to tell them, ‘Thus says the Lord:

        “Those destined for death, to death;
        And those destined for the sword, to the sword;
        And those destined for famine, to famine;
        And those destined for captivity, to captivity.”’

        Jeremiah 7:16
        16 “As for you, do not pray for this people, and do not lift up cry or prayer for them, and do not intercede with Me; for I do not hear you.

        Jeremiah 14:11
        11 So the Lord said to me, “Do not pray for the welfare of this people.

        Direct from the word of God…

        Acts 17:26 and He made from one man, every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined [their] appointed times, and the boundaries of their habitation.

        Job 12:23 “He makes the nations great, then destroys them; He enlarges the nations, then leads them away.

        Are we something to God?…God needs nothing from us…for these words in Isaiah speaks this truth.

        Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, He taketh up the isles as a very little thing. And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering. All nations before Him are as nothing ; and they are counted to Him less than nothing, and vanity. To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto Him? (Isa 40:15-18).

        How vastly different is the God of Scripture from the “god” of the average pulpit! The modern day Pharisee (pastor) has turned the Lord God into a genie in the bottle to stroke at their will…yet God is stroking the world with His wrath and indignation.

        May the Lord in His wrath, show us mercy.

        To all my Christian Brethren…read the verse below to see what is in store for the US.

        Deuteronomy 28:43 The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low.

        Due to our iniquities against the Lord God, He has turned us over to evil and wicked men. Repent of your sinful worldly ways and the Lord God may relent on His anger that He is now pouring out upon us.
