A Post-Apocalyptic Shot…From The Film…The Book Of Eli

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.

~ William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, Act 4, Scene 1, Lines 10-11; 20-21; and 35-36


Much like the evilness the three Macbeth witches intend for their dreadful concoction to achieve, which is the conjuring up of gruesome apparitions that foreshadow Macbeth’s murderous future, the evilness that is boiling in the Devil’s cauldron of global distress and unrest also is achieving Satan’s intended effect, which is the manifestation of deceptive and frightening illusions that ironically foretell the unbelieving and disbelieving masses’ future horrific pain and misery to be experienced during the Tribulation Period. Just like the witches’ brew in Macbeth underscores the central theme of the play, which is EVILNESS, the Devil’s mixed bag of tricks draw attention to the main emphasis of the prophetic last days and end times, which is the “something wicked” that sure enough is coming this way—the Perfect Storm that is about to bring unprecedented global mortal and eternal danger. 

By Perfect Storm, this blogger is referring to a RARE combination of a number of circumstances (negative unpredictable factors) that radically worsen a crucially critical situation (humans nonexistent, or ineffectual, relationship with God). For sure, there currently is boiling in the Devil’s cauldron of global distress and unrest the diabolic and demonic forces’ illusions (Satan and his imps’ smokescreen delusions) that will make it seem as if the Devil and his imps are in control of the global elements of economy, nature, war, politics, cultures, belief systems, and societal relationships that have been fused with the false impressions of an unloving Creator who intentionally designed Hell and the Lake of Fire for His human creations, and the false impressions of a God who also plans to pour out His unfair and dreadful wrath upon end-time humans. This combination of negative unpredictable factors and a drastically worsened critical situation is the climate for a Perfect Storm, which actually ONLY can exist when “the masses” are not responding correctly to God—when the majority of people are rending their garments instead of their hearts.

The Divine Truth is that when humanity understands that the Creator of the universe and every living creature therein prefers that His human creations rend their hearts instead of their garments (cf. Joel 2:13) then they will be on the right track for having a right and intimate relationship with God. Traditionally, in the Jewish culture, the rending (tearing) of their clothes was an outward expression of extraordinary uncontrollable emotions, the primary ones being grief, sorrow, terror, and/or horror. However, God’s spiritual economy is contrary to this traditional rending. God wants people, especially His sinning spiritual sons and daughters, to show contrition of heart and brokenness of spirit (to live the kind of life that displays an inward indisputable repentance, as opposed to living the kind of life that displays an outward hypocritical repentance).

This former acceptable penitent achievement is the result of God’s genuinely sorrowful children ripping out (confessing/exposing) their sins to God, seeking His forgiveness for their sins, and making a 180° turn away from their sins (absolutely repenting of or completely changing their mindset about sinning). For this reason, since the time of Jesus the Christ until this present day, the work of spiritual leaders, such as apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers, continues to be that of warning the world, especially members in institutional churches, as well as the unchurched and the unbelievers, of the fatally eternal consequences of sin. It also is spiritual leaders’ mission to reveal the Divine Truth about the wrath of God that initially was intended to be the appropriate judgment for ONLY the Devil and his demonic angels, but because of the world’s ungodliness and unrighteousness, rebellious men and women, boys and girls also will receive the same judgment. 

The above truth about spiritual leaders not only warning but also revealing to believers the coming wrath of God is apparent in apostle Paul’s epistles. For example, in 1 Corinthians 10, the apostle Paul uses the nation of Israel’s history as a kind of warning to New Testament believers. He is warning today’s Christians about all the last days and end times’ punishments that, in various ways, will come upon the world’s ungodly and unrighteous individuals, and not by chance, but by the Perfect Will of God, which means the unrepentant ungodly and unrighteous will get exactly what their sins deserve. The apostle writes:

Now these things befell them {Israel} by way of a figure [as an example and warning to us]; they were written to admonish and fit us for right action by good instruction, we in whose days the ages have reached their climax (their consummation and concluding period). ~ 1 Corinthians 10:11, AMP; the inserted word in the curly brackets is this blogger’s emphasis; also read 1 Corinthians 10:1-10

In other words, the apostle Paul is saying that when God’s sons and daughters not only are in right relationship with Him but also are having an intimate relationship with God, then EVERYTHING in the natural and spiritual realms will respond correctly. That is to say that even though the Devil’s Perfect Storm is bubbling, awaiting the final ingredients that will cause all Hell to break loose upon this Earth, in spite of the apparent imminent violence and terror that this “storm” will display, this soon coming Perfect Storm will be a “storm” that even the left-behind believers who finally have an intimate relationship with God can sleep through.

That’s right, just like Jesus the Christ slept through the illusory storm on the Sea of Galilee (cf. Mark 4:35-41), believers on this side of the Rapture who have an intimate relationship with God not only can sleep through any “storm,” but also they have the authority to command every “storm” to respond properly to them. Moreover, in the context of 1 Corinthians 10:1-11, the Perfect Storm that is brewing is a last days and end-time storm. Therefore, the surviving left-behind individuals also will have inward joy and peace, as well as the authority to command any “storm.” In particular, the 144,000 who have the seal of God and, consequently, refuse to take the Mark of the Beast, which is the “something wicked” that sure enough is coming, will be able to “be still” (have inward peace and joy) because they know God already has given them authority over Satan’s smokescreen of a Perfect Storm.

In contrast, when godliness and righteousness fail to rule in individuals’ body, soul, and spirit, then, because these individuals are neither in right relationship with God nor in an intimate relationship with Him, NOTHING these left-behind people say or do will bring them peace and joy during the Perfect Storm’s environment, for, once they take the Mark of the Beast, it will become impossible for them to have any authority over the diabolic and demonic forces that, together with the aforesaid negative and unpredictable factors, come in like a catastrophic flood.  In other words, all that they used to count on when they were in a crisis will no longer be reliable sources—neither finances; nor the ability to read the natural signs that point to a coming tsunami, hurricane, earthquake, etcetera; or the ability to circumvent a war; or the ability to conquer political corruption; or cultural superiority; or having dominant religious beliefs; or the ability to network with those who share like-minded interests and activities. These left-behind people will no longer be able to count on any of these once reliable “storm” silencers, because none of them will respond correctly to these individuals’ commands. Consequently, these individuals will not be able to sleep during the coming Perfect Storm for they, like the frightened disciples in the boat with their Savior, will NOT have any inward peace and joy!

A spiritual and natural Perfect Storm is coming—spiritual and natural because humans’ relationship with God is both spiritual and natural. The Good News is that the Lord’s Bride will not have to weather this coming “storm,” for by the time that this “storm” is saturating this Earth the Bride of Christ will have been Raptured (cf. 1 Corinthians 15:51-53; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17). Therefore, the prophesied Perfect Storm—an unprecedented global calamity—is the evilness, the personification of the Antichrist, which will control this world’s economic systems, governmental and political systems, religious systems, and so forth. For this reason, the left-behind people are being forewarned that, if they do not have the right and intimate relationship with God, during the Tribulation Period, then it is highly probable that they will be caught unaware by an unusually intense “storm” pattern that sure enough will put their eternal lives in GRAVE danger!
