Today in America, we’re seeing capitalism severely challenged by socialist ideas. Around the world, we’re seeing globalism gain traction as borders seem to fade away. Even in Israel, we’re witnessing the potential of a “change coalition” robbing the identity of the Jewish state.
How have we come to this? Did it happen suddenly? Where are the voices that should be rising up against such destructive ideology?
I am reminded of a modern-day parable about catching wild pigs, and it’s sobering insight into what we are seeing today. See if you agree:
“You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come everyday to eat the free corn. When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming. When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence. They get used to that and start to eat again. You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up – with a gate. The pigs, who are used to the free corn, come through the gate now to eat and then you slam the gate down on them and catch the whole herd.
Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught. Soon they go back to eating the free corn. They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity.”~Author Unknown
Governments keep pushing citizens toward Communism/ Socialism by spreading free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tax exemptions, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare entitlements, medicine, drugs, etc., while continuing to eliminate freedoms a little at a time. We are told that things such as climate change and civil rights are a global issue to be resolved by one gigantic global community.
If that sounds like a scheme to create One World Order, you’re correct! The Antichrist will be revealed as the ultimate architect of that order, and it seems to be only just around the corner!
