In light of world events, the familiar adage, "History repeats itself," has taken on new meaning for me since early 2020. I wondered, Why would God allow history to be repeated, unless earlier events were intended to prepare God's people for what lies ahead? It's one thing to learn from history but another to intentionally mine current events as preparation for the future.
This past year and several months, we have all been searching to understand the times and gain wisdom and insight to the Lord's plans and timeline. We desperately want to understand and find solid ground—a sure footing for our hope. This article shares the path of understanding I've been on and much of what I've shared with my podcast audience.
First, what can we learn from history relative to our present situation and all that has occurred since the onset of COVID-19?
Was there another time in recent history when evil dominated and people were controlled concerning their thoughts and deeds? Yes. Consider the time of Adolf Hitler's Third Reich and Nazi regime from 1933-1945. Evil clearly dominated during this time through a few people who gained control over the masses, even to the extent of seeking to exterminate the entire Jewish race—God's chosen people.
How did these few in power gain control? Influenced by the anti-Christ spirit, the enemy of God, Hitler understood whoever controls the media controls the minds of the people. Nazi propaganda was the tool used to control the people—to convince them and deceive them away from truth, bringing them to actually support Hitler's agenda—which in reality was the agenda of Satan. This gives new insight to Ephesians 2:2 where Satan is referred to as the prince of the power of the air.
Have we experienced similar control and propaganda in our present realities?
