“And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.” – Romans 13:11
The Greek word for “high time” is hōra, which means; a definite time or season, the twelfth hour or end of the day immediately before darkness. Of course, it is an unnatural response to awaken when darkness comes, but rather to sleep. However, in the spiritual sense, when darkness according to eschatology arrives, we must be awake.
“But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:4-8
Therefore, let us consider what is occurring today with our eyes open and minds alert. A recent Barna poll discovered that 90% of political liberals have never read the Bible. Is it any surprise that that sector cannot discern between good and evil? I say to every true Christian, stop appealing to the sense of justice in liberal politicians and other godless influential people in our nation. They have no concept of justice. Instead, they believe justice is persecuting individuals that are just. Stop appealing to their common sense. They discarded that as a hindrance to political “correctness” long ago.
Cease attempting to embarrass liberals concerning their imbecilic and moronic statements. They are “unembarassable,” having no sense of propriety by which shame can be provoked. Why attempt to make them consider reason and logic when they embrace unreasonable and illogical as twin strengths of their “integrity?”
There is no purpose in appealing to their sense of fairness since they insist that their evil works are righteous. Thus, they howl as if egregiously wronged when exposed by the law or standard of common decency. They believe that outrage is proper against expressions of goodness, godliness, and common decency. But when people are outraged at child molestation, infanticide, gender perversion, or other scurrilous behavior, they screech that such outrage is hatred that should be punishable by every means possible.
Don’t appeal to their integrity; they dissolved it to retrofit the mind of Satan. Nothing from the kingdom of God appeals to or makes sense to them. Appealing to them about the great damage they are causing only makes them indignant and angry. The legacy of their wicked political leadership is as a massive pile of rubble, but they see it as a great mountain of hope.
So it is time to face the truth about what has a lion’s mouth grip on the throat of America. We (Christians) are under an aggressive attack by the secular realm with our demise as the intended result. Their plan is the total annihilation of truth and godly conscience by the Saul Alinsky method to achieve the Hegelian Dialectic. It is an implosion of the United States society so that a godless and brutal gulag can be established on the grave of our Republic. The United States will be joined to the godless Global government.
Furthermore and essential to understanding the whole picture, one must recognize the great apostasy of Christianity as a parallel great work of wickedness. It will completely destroy and/or subdue godliness and replace it with delusional wickedness, all under the false titles of peace and unity. It is actually peace with Satan and unity with unrighteousness. That fact is easily identified by the fruit.
The big picture is that the great wickedness professing Christians see occurring in the world system is occurring on an equal scale in Christianity. However, many Christians are very politically aware of the bizarre wickedness in the World System but completely refuse to recognize the same degree of wickedness in Christianity.
The two sectors are on parallel paths that are now speeding toward conversion. We know that is occurring when we witness complete abandonment of love for truth by an abundance of evil leaders in each sector.
So professing Christians are politically involved and believe they have a political Savior in the President. They completely ignore the spiritual destruction at work with equal force in Christianity. If they would only pray and take off the blinders, they would understand the danger. But they will not and they refuse to hear the watchman or join the Remnant. Here is what is likely to occur.
The whitewashed wall weak professing Christians are trusting in that provides their false hope will come down in an instant. They will turn back to trust in Christianity only to discover that it too has collapsed. Bewildered and fearful, they will accept the first way out, which will be the offer of peace and security by Antichrist and the False Prophet. They will be too weak to resist, too spiritually blind to recognize evil, and too dependent on comfort, security, and escapism, to endure to the end.
I pray daily that they will turn their focus back on God and away from the satanic sideshow. I hope and pray that they will open their minds to what God wishes them to see and prepare accordingly. One day their cries of, “Too late! It’s too late!” will echo off the shut door. (Matthew 25)
I am concerned that apostate Christendom has completely tuned out what the Bible actually says will happen to those who believe the “lie” of the evil one whose coming is after (according to) the working of Satan. It says they will be sent strong delusion so that all will be damned who receive NOT the love of the Truth a so that they might (may) be saved. These verses from 2 Thess. 2 are not about the salvation of being “born again”. They speak of the Truth of God’s unchanging Word being relegated to the back burner and the lies of the devil being exalted.
And friends that is where the majority of professing Christendom resides today. In the sway and grasp of the evil one, deceived by political correctness in the apostate assemblies of modern apostate religion. They don’t read and study and believe what the Bible says about those who sleep and are locked out . I wish they would wake up and repent, but the Word does not forecast revival and mass repentance, only apostacy and ruin .
It is a hard battle to retrieve Christians who stray into apostacy, but we must try to warn until we are rescued by Him at the parousia. I think there will be some time for true conversion of sinners (lost people) while we wait on Jesus’s return after times have turned really bad, materially speaking, for most people. These people are watching us now and I pray that they will HEAR God’s call and respond when they see the turmoil that is to come. That is my hope and prayer.
When the churches and seminaries embreced the pre-trib wrapture they opened the door to the falling away.
Dear Scott, would you explain your comment?
His comment was pretty clear. What do you not understand about it?
Dear LaurieL – perhaps I can help. The pre-trib rapture doctrine is widley taught and believed but it did not come into existence until the late 1800’s nor is it believed much outside the western churches. I actually go into great length to expose this very bad doctrine by simply comparing the scriptures. You could find it on my website at revivalusa.net
When the church accepts the notion that we will be whisked away before trouble really starts it removes the fear of God. It removes the urgency to prepare and preach to reach others. It is a lie of the enemy to trip up anyone who will believe it, and unfortunately like myself for years we believe it because we’re taught it. But i kept reading the Bible and too many contradictions begin to appear. At first i thought it would be okay if some of us believe in pretrib and others in post trib, what difference does it make? The Lord corrected me as He told me He wants truth in His bride. Read my blog on this subject as i raise many questions. I think it will help you. That is if you really are a truth seeker.
Oh Cedric, sooo true; I’m amazed at some of our friends who stay in a
“Church” that has long ago abandoned the full counsel of God’s Word in favor of ease and comfort…..✝️
This is very insightful and a wake up call for sure. I see apostasy is already here. The churches have become dangerous places for Christians and that is disheartening to say the least.
In fact Christianity was infiltrated & subverted first!
The prosperity gospel & the bless me culture in the church gave birth to a generation of self serving rather than Christ serving church goers.
It gave birth to a lifestyle rather than death to self .
It gave birth to a cold blooded loveless churchianty that “ had a form of Godliness but denying the power”.
I watched all this happen within the church in the late 80s & 90s & it just got worse from there.
Satan had to subvert the church first as the church is the salt that preserves.
It was the standard against the wickedness happening in politics & industry & society. Once that was gone & left as a husk eaten out by termites it was very easy for Satan to hasten this great evil in the world.
But God has a plan. He is using this to see who will stay true to him rather than their denomination or preacher.
The persecution that is coming to the true church will be the most vicious from these church goers. It will be vile & violent….in the name of God.
But it will sort out the true from the false.
The church has got a lot to pay for. Particularly these proud, arrogant & rich false Shepard’s & profits who are wolves in sheep’s clothing fleecing the sheep & devouring them.
That’s why judgement comes first to the house of God.
Your condition of the Church is well summarized.
But there will be no change until we return to God’s Pattern for His Church and Families.
I wrote a letter to my family which became a website. Nothing for sale there and your money has no value there.
No, won’t be stopped. Like the Matrix, Americans want their comforts and don’t want to face reality, They want to stay plugged into the Matrix. Meanwhile, as the proverbial net closes in around them, by the time they realize their fate, it will be too late to do anything about it.
The state of the church is even worse.
SO VERY TRUE
