The world is being shaken - just as God said. Reminder to the Saints; "see that you are not troubled". The Locust Army is on the march. Their assignment is to destroy. Joel 1:4, and symbols in Joel 2:2, through 2:11. It is important to note that our Lord is in control!
Not that the Locust Army needs any assistance; they get plenty of help from Cain's Kids, and the many deceived people-hiding behind Religion. Matt.24:10 "many offended". These are led by "blind leaders" that cause iniquity[lawlessness] to exist. The offended = stumble: as quoted by Is.8:1
"And betray one another, and shall hate one another". These are Religious folks. The Truth about the Middle East can Not be spoken, because [Matt.24:5] the fakes are lying in wait, to attack. The time is now, that people would rather hear a lie, than the love of the Truth. The Truth is now classed as hate-speech.
The ascension of "false prophets" have increased in numbers over the past 100 yrs.. Since John the Baptist[witness], all claiming to be a prophet have been "false". Today they look at current events, and become a modern day Chicken Little.
The rejection of our Lord, has caused the release of the Locust among us. The wicked leaders are a direct response to our hard-headedness. That is why they should Not be touched[murdered]. Paint a mental picture of a giant Locust: then make his head the leader of your Nation. Joel 2:25 Explains who - this army belongs too!
