The Olympics are becoming a nursery for a global war. It is not a cold war as yet. Not cold enough in Rio for that. It is a war in the swim waters. The aggressors have not changed since the cold war. Russian athletes have been banned by the score for using performance enhancing drugs. The rules are no different for them than for the others. What is different are the performances. There really are drugs that can help one swim or run faster. They are a problem in the U S. Pro athletes are getting caught quite often. When money is out there in huge quanities the temptation to enhance one's performance will often win over.
Harsh words and actions are springing up. One can be sure their surly leader is looking on. Putin does not back away easily from a fight, especially if it is the USA.
At the same time horrible suicide atrocities are taking hundreds of lives daily. ISIS and other like groups seem to have an excess of young men and women so brain washed by religious ideals that they gladly blow themselves to pieces to kill innocent men, women, and children even of their own countries. It is beyond my imagination, but it is so. We have our own marks of it in New York, Washington, and elsewhere here in our land.
Ultimately, a violent Creature called Satan is at work. His time is running out and he is making a final battle. How far along the conflict is I do not know. There could be much, much more. Paul wrote to an early servant, Timothy, and said this in his second letter to him..
" Mark this. There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying it's power...." That covers it all.
