With the turmoil in our country and the world, it sometimes seems we are rushing toward the end of time. People have different points of view on what this means, but certainly what we are seeing is the beginning of what the Bible calls "the beginning of sorrows" (Matt. 24:8).
My longtime friend, Bishop George Bloomer, senior pastor of the Bethel Family Worship Center in Durham, North Carolina, believes that current events represent the four horses of the apocalypse: the white horse (false religion), red horse (war and communism), black horse (the economy) and the pale horse (the pandemic). In my podcast today, he explains each one.
Bloomer believes that if Donald Trump is reelected, it will slow down these things from happening as quickly—especially one-world government and one-world economy. And Bloomer says if Trump loses, we may rush headlong into these four horses of the apocalypse and all they represent sooner.
I've always had difficulty understanding the book of Revelation, yet I know the events prophesied will come to pass even if some of its teachings seem obscure. I'm thankful for Christian leaders like Bishop Bloomer who are not afraid to speak up and shed light on current affairs through the lens of Scripture.
As a Black man, Bishop Bloomer is concerned with the propaganda of the organization Black Lives Matter. As he told me in my podcast, he of course believes as we all do that Black lives do matter. But he's studied the organization's beliefs and is concerned that otherwise intelligent people are being drawn into a cause with a very dangerous socialist agenda.
We also talked about China, where the Wuhan coronavirus, (also known as COVID-19) originated, causing the current pandemic. I pointed out that this is something I dealt with in my new book, God, Trump and COVID-19, which is available online and in stores, but especially at my website, SteveStrangBooks.com (where you can get an autographed copy.)
Bishop Bloomer is a powerful preacher and articulate thinker. Be sure to listen to his podcast with me and share it with friends.
