Prophecy in the News
A huge Buddhist prayer wheel has been set up in Scotland. Buddhists believe that prayers affixed to a turning wheel will automatically be sent up to their gods as the wheel spins. The brief report in the Edinburgh Scotsman reads as follows:
An ornate prayer wheel containing 20 billion prayers on microfilm, three for every human being on the planet, was dedicated to world peace at the Kagyu Samye-Ling Tibetan Buddhist center at Eskdalemuir yesterday. The wheel, which rotates clockwise, has deep religious significance in Tibetan Buddhist temples.
This event, though small on a world wide scale, is significant in telling the time in which we now live. In the light of such activities, the words of the Apostle Paul ring louder and truer than ever (I Timothy 4:1):
1 Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils ...
2 Peter 2:22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.
Scotland once produced some of the world's most devout Christian theologians, as well as many active mission societies and charities. The astounding acceptance of such a pagan superstition in a formerly Christian nation is disheartening. Only the knowledge of Christ's soon return can bring such discouraging news into a proper balance. Thank God for the blessed hope.
