Rendezvous With Destiny 6 June 2004 I was reading Ronald Reagan’s great speech “Rendezvous With Destiny.” He quoted Alexander Hamilton who said, "A nation which can prefer disgrace to danger is prepared for a master, and deserves one." My thoughts returned to the recent Spanish elections where those people chose to be swayed by a little terrorism into voting for a government that would withdraw them from the necessary confrontation with terrorism needed to keep their national sovereignty. They of course are not alone. We have seen the French and the Germans willing to prostitute themselves to the former dictator Saddam Hussein as well as Syrian terrorist leaders for the sake of gain. Their sale of themselves was more of a long-term relationship, for they spent years being the mistress of these and other evil governments for what they could get out of it. After the fall of the Soviet Union, I did some one-night seminars on how the event with its realignment of relationships made the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38 more possible of fulfillment exactly as stated than ever before. Nothing that has taken place since then has moved me away from seeing how world events have set the course for a Biblical rendezvous with destiny. Christians should remember that the time of the Tribulation, we often speak about and say that we believe in, is an exercise of God’s judgment upon mankind in which they receive exactly what is deserved for the choices they have made. We are seeing all of Europe moving in the direction to set up the world for a coming of the man of sin predicted in Scripture. The coming events will prove the words of Alexander Hamilton that the people who prefer disgrace to danger is prepared for a master and deserves one. It seems that most of the pulpits of Europe and silent, and in the main they are powerless anyway. We can point to decades, and in some cases centuries of compromise that has made this so. The result is that they are not speaking to the people and warning them of the rendezvous with destiny that is heading their way with ever increasing speed.
