Interestingly just a the Revolution led France to war we now see the recent Paris massacre also lead France to war with Jihadists both locally and in the Mid East. Other similarities to come shall be bankruptcy and starvation.....This will also then come to America before long
The fatal error which wrought such woe for the inhabitants of France was the ignoring of this one great truth: that true freedom lies within the prescriptions of the law of God. " O that thou hast hearkened to My commandments! then thy peace been as a river, and the righteousness as the waves of the sea." " There is no peace saith the Lord, unto the wicked." " But those whoso hearkeneth unto Me SHALL DWELL SAFELY, and shall be quiet from fear of evil" Isa 48:18; Proverbs 1:33....Atheist, infidels, and apostates oppose and denounce God's law; but the results of their influence prove that the well being of man is bound up in His obedience of the divine statutes. THOSE WHO WILL NOT READ THE LESSON FROM THE BOOK OF GOD, ARE BIDDEN TO READ IT IN THE HISTORY OF THE NATIONS.....look to Jesus and prepare for the end of the earth's history.
The recent massacre that happened in France is what will happen in America and then spread across the globe. But it's fruit does not fully appear until the USA unites church and state(Rev 13:14-15) to make an image to the beast(about 40 months away).......Excerpts from The Great Controversy....Unhappy France reaped in blood the harvest she had sown. Terrible were the results of her submission to the controlling power of Rome. Where France, under the influence of Rome, had set up the first stake in the opening of the Reformation, there the Revolution set up its first guillotine. On the very spot where the first Protestants faith were burned in the sixteenth century, the first victims were guillotined in the eighteenth. In repelling the gospel, which would have brought her healing, France had opened the door to infidelity and ruin. When the restraints of God's law were set aside, it was found that the laws of man were inadequate to hold in check the powerful tides of human passion; and the nation swept on to revolt and anarchy. The war against the Bible inaugurated an era which stand's in the world's history as "THE REIGN OF TERROR" Peace and happiness were banished from homes and hearts of men. NO ONE WAS SECURE.......The cities of the kingdom were filled with scenes of horror..."In Paris one tumult succeeded another, and the citizens were divided into a medley of factions, that seemed intent on nothing but mutual extermination". And to add to the general misery, the nation became involved in a prolonged and devastating war with great powers of Europe. The country was nearly bankrupt, the army was clamoring of pay, the Parisians were starving, the provinces were laid waste
with brigands, and civilization was almost extinguished in anarchy and license...continued
