Personal and Public Dangers!
The chemical make-up and the affect to the physical and central nervous system are sad, repugnant and destructive!
CANCER & ADDICTION – “Meth labs started popping up like tulips in Spring. The trouble is, one sniff of the chemicals used to make meth could cause cancer, according to experts.the state recently received the dubious distinction of having the most meth labs per capita in the United States.Meth is said to be one of the most addictive drugs around.” (“What You Don’t Know Could Hurt You: The Drug Phenomenon Hits Utah,” Debbie Dujanovic.

Sorceries and Drugs
The increase of violence, wild sex and dishonesty will approach new heights during the Great Tribulation! “Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts” (Rev. 9:21). “SORCERIES” comes from the same Greek root as our word “PHARMACIES”, alluding to DRUGS. In the times of Bible history, drug addiction, astrology and the occult went together. The tribulation “users” will fail to repent!
The love of riches and the wrong use of drugs will have a fatal hold! The worldly music and entertainment will be brought to a close. Factories will grind to a halt and the unions will shut down (vs. 22). Happy rejoicing ceases. And what parallels all of this heartache? ” for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived” (Rev. 18:23b). Enchanted by pushers, DRUGS and satanic lies, the world will follow a great deception! The present day suicide and bloodshed from drugs climaxes in a broad and sweeping picture of absolute destruction!
The devil is busily feeding his plan. Could it be that our present day Americans will face the holocaust of the Great Tribulation? “Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time” (Rev. 12:12).
“Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people” (Pro. 14:34).
