Before I address anything else, please bear with me as I point out some examples of true hatred. I am using the definition of hatred that rose up from Liberalism like a swamp monster from a fog. That definition is; “Anything that disagrees with or in anyway disapproves of what I say or do.” It is enforced by a single rule; to punish the offender as harshly as possible, often with the help of the news media. It is now escalated to the retraction or restriction of one’s Constitutional rights of “life, liberty, the persist of happiness, freedom of speech, and freedom of religion.”
Since the rule only applies to and is enforced against Christians, it is hatred by its own definition. It’s enforcers identify historic and biblical Christian values as hatred, then aggressively force Christians to submit to the false accusation or suffer the loss of their livelihoods, pay outrageousness fines and compensation. It is a massive attempt by Christophobic individuals in the secular realm to force the Remnant of God’s people into becoming “closet” Christians.
By their own definition of hatred, the lawsuits and adjudication are themselves acts of hatred against Christian bakers, flower shop owners, et cetera. They are aggressive acts of hatred because they are unconstitutional infringements on the rights of Christians citizens to live free in our Republic unencumbered by abusive of legislative or judicial power.
Furthermore, the attempts to replace the Constitution of our nation with Sharia Law is an act of hatred. First, our Constitution disallows the violence intrinsic in Islam and the two diametrically opposed Legal Systems cannot coexist. Furthermore, Islam has a worldwide history of gaining by violence what it cannot possibly gain by attraction. It is the most violent and brutal religion against Christians. We cannot retain our Constitution and Christianity cannot exist under Sharia Law.
The fact is that the secular realm is now overrun by people that have Christophobic hatred as a key ingredient in the premise of their character, They are entering every office of society, and then using those offices to illegally, constantly, and abusively instigate hatred against Christians. Concurrently, individuals are not genuine Christians that have slithered into Christianity and have no intention of being Christians by the biblical definition and standard of Christianity. The evidence is the fact that they wish to wear the title, but not to accept or live by its precepts. They are changing Christianity very rapidly to keep pace with the moral decay agents in secularism. They are using the same term “hatred” and method, “attack everyone who disagrees with or disapproves of what I say or do.” You cannot have an honest discussion or debate with any of these individuals because the truth is beyond distasteful to them—it is deeply offensive.
It is no secret that false Christians are attempting to create a religious version of the society that secularists are attempting to establish, and to a great degree have done so. It is being carried out by one of the oldest tricks of Satan. He accuses God’s people of an attribute of his own nature, such as hatred, which accomplishes two things.
First, it obscures that Satan and his emissaries are personifications of hatred. He or they cannot morally and ethically defend their positions. Thus, he initiates the dishonest, and I should add childish, tit-for-tat contest of who is the hypocrite—as two children accusing each other when only one of them is guilty. In such a contest, the one who has the power and control, and is willing to use and abuse it, can force a dishonest conclusion. In the case of Christian “hatred,” secularist use the liberal news media and abuse their political offices to force it to be regarded as truth. In Christianity, false Christians use their superior control of Christian media to do the same.
Second, Satan realizes that he does not have to attack the entirety of Christianity, but merely one of its virtues. Evil individuals do not usually attempt to bring down a good person by attacking their entire life’s activity, but by making one lie plausible and super-horrific. If refusing to bake a wedding cake for a homosexual couple was so destructive, how did homosexuality exist and grow in the many years when almost the entire nation rejected it. A Christian that exercises his or her freedom of speech and religious right to oppose it has not caused near as much egregious harm as the lawsuits and abuse imposed by the legal system.
However, evil people give each other a pass on shockingly immoral deeds, and yet explode an ages-old alleged comment by a Conservative into a concerted attack on their entire character. Likewise, diabolical individuals have convinced society that the biblical truth about homosexuality is an aggressive act of hatred.
This Little Light of Mine
Having established the false definition of “hatred” and misuse it to attack Christians, the question is begged, “What is the objective of this attack?” The answer is simply to put out the Christian light. The world and apostate Christianity have now reached the point where they cannot tolerate even a sliver of light. God’s word is clear that wicked individuals hate the light because it exposes their works as evil.
“And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.” (John 3:19-21)
The smaller light of true Christians ought to reflect the greater light of Christ. Our secular and religious societies are becoming so dark that the light appears even more bright. The evil deeds of abortion, homosexuality, pedophilia, transgenderism, et cetera, are exposed and reproved by the light. Diabolical individuals want that light to be completely put out. They desire a world of total darkness. In the secular and Christianity realms, we are witnessing completely demonic individuals unashamedly and apparently without a hint of guilt, speaking and committing bizarre works of darkness. The more we are intimate with God, the more offensive we will be to them. But we are not called to compromise with or sooth the deeds of the wicked. We are called to shine—which exposes the works of darkness.
“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.” (Ephesians 5:11-13)
“…that ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;” (Philippians 2:15)
John the Baptist was called by Christ “a burning and a shining, light.” (John 5:35) True Christians are to shine the light as a “city set on a hill.” (Matthew 5:14).
By converting the biblical truth about homosexuality into “hatred,” numerous leading Christians were convinced to compromise and accept homosexuality and even homosexual marriage. However, it is clear that a Christian for whatever reason that refuses to shine the light of Christ is suppressing God’s Divine Nature, the Holy Spirit, that dwells in them. Continuing to refuse to shine and ignoring subsequent conviction will result in the Holy Spirit departing from them. The result is that individuals will have inner darkness.
“Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” (2 Corinthians 6:19-20)
“If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.” (1 Corinthians 3:17)
“This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” (1 John 1:5-7)
The objective of Satan and his secular and religious minions is to force Christians to swerve from the light and eventually to compromise with and walk in darkness. The Greek word for “walk”—obviously implied figuratively in the above passage—is peripatéō, which means, “to live, regulate one’s life, conduct oneself.”
The growing pressure to force professing Christians to abandon godliness and to re-order their lives to conform to the world system is working. That is what this entire fiasco of flagrant and senseless wicked and dishonest use of terminologies in secular and religious realms is all about. It is the release of a deluge of satanic hatred against the light of true Christians—God’s Remnant. Individuals that allow the massive offensive to press them into apathetic caves, and to turn down or turn off their lights, are in deep and serious trouble. They will be complicit in plunging the world in near total darkness.
This message convicts all of us. It compels us to search our hearts for any hint of compromise. If today we cannot refer to transgenderism as diabolical, what will we be forced to keep silent about tomorrow? When pedophilia is accepted as a genuine sexual orientation, and we witness parents submitting their children to a sleepover with pedophiles, will we mute our outrage? We are already witnessing parents attempting to change the gender of their children. When will that evil activity also be condoned by leading Christians under the guise of being loving and compassionate? Why are professing Christians not insisting that their pastors speak against this wickedness? Why should pastors have to be pressured to speak against the darkness? Why are denominational and other leaders remaining silent or making statements so cautious and benign as to offend no one? Are they all sleeping dogs?
“His watchmen are blind, They are all ignorant; They are all dumb dogs, They cannot bark; Sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.” (Isaiah 56:10)
Our Light Affliction
When considering being a vocal and active representative of Christ, there is the pressing question; “Is it worth the rejection, pain, material loss, and other serious consequences?” The answer is practically shouted from what a true light-shiner and fellow sufferer wrote.
“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” (Romans 8:18)
“For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” (2 Corinthians 4:17-18)
The answer is, if you have the eternal perspective, “Yes! It is worth whatever the cost!” Shine, dear brothers and sisters—shine!
Hello, I am still reading the article, but stopped to comment and point to Psalm 2… The nations are raging against Jesus Christ! Christians need to be on guard and not side with those who are raging.
Excellent! What serious days we are in as Believers. Persecution is swiftly coming. We MUST be ready to stand regardless of the cost.
Yes. And it is all part of the plan. Before I get into that, I want to mention that I felt urged to research the time in history that lead up to the Holocaust. The Holocaust did not pop up overnight. There was a time of preparation necessary to condition the German people into blindly accepting what was about to happen. Well to get to the point, I saw the parallels of what was happening in society then and what is going on now. A lot of it is the same exact stuff. And society again is being set up for the same exact thing. Only the target this time is Biblical Christians.
When you look at how society treated the European Jews, you see a list of things.
And it began by slow increments and follows the ‘5 stages of persecution’ outline. First Jews were villified, mocked, and ridiculed within society at large. At first it may have been that they were called ‘peculiar’ or ‘odd’ in some ways and it progressed from there. Later, they made mocking and horrific depictions of Jews openly in newspapers, making them look animal like. There was a campaign to make them seen as sub human. Later was what is well known as ‘Krystallnacht,’ or the night of broken glass. That was when it was open season on all Jewish businesses. (Sound familiar?) The business storefronts were vandalized and the glass was shattered. Slogans were written against the Jews right on their storefronts. Then they were forced to wear the yellow Jewish stars on their clothing. They were ostracized. Those with prominent positions lost their jobs, such as government officials, doctors, lawyers, professors, teachers, etc. They were subject to random beatings and attacks not only from the public, but from nazi soldiers that would stand guard on street corners. And all of this, just for being Jewish. And it got worse from there. Of course in all public institutions like Universities, and the media at the time, the Jews were villified to no end. Eventually they lost all their livelihood, possessions, friends, etc. And the last step was the concentration camps where they were tortured and murdered.
And yet the satanic puppet masters behind the scenes managed to keep the population silent and even complicit in the Holocaust. Afterwards people would question ‘How could this have happened?!’ Well it was by a very stealthy satanic plan that happened to work. They began by making jokes, a strong indoctrination program at schools and such, propaganda in newspapers and other outlets, rallying the public against the Jews with all sorts of ‘justifiable reasons,’ or so they thought. What was the devil’s plan? He was not targeting the Jews for religion, but for race. That comes down to some prophesies that are yet to be fulfilled and I won’t get into that here. But he was trying to thwart God’s plan, as usual. The Jews actually had to register in Germany even if they were one eighth Jewish or something stringent like that. Why? So they could be tracked for extermination. During the Holocaust itself, the population for the most part remained silent and even in agreement. They had been programmed, brainwashed, hypnotized, and seduced into the ‘new mindset.’ That was one reason. Some, however, knew better but chose to remain silent. Why? Their own survival. The old “it’s either going to be you, or me” kicked in. If they protested in any way and did not go along with the program, they were just as persecuted as the Jews. So most of them chose to remain silent in order to survive with their livelihoods intact. They did not want their boats to be rocked. There were a few who resisted, such as Niemoller. But they were only a handful or so and yes, most did die in the camps as Christian martyrs. Another interesting thing to note was that before the program got off the ground, the German churches were infiltrated, seduced, and brought on board! They had to turn off their light and seduce them before they had the green light to proceed with the satanic plan. And surprise, it worked. They sold them a totally different Gospel and had taken out the Old Testament, and hitler even had coined his own new anti-Christian religion and made many comments against true Christianity. We don’t hear much about that today. But folks, does any of that sound familiar? You’d have to be in a cave not to notice the parallels! We are going down the exact same road today and are well on the way and for the exact same reasons! And of course this is where they all want to insert the ‘pre trib’ rapture myth to the rescue… but no. And that is even part of the deception to get people to go along and not be prepared to stand firm. Another long story.
The fact is that we are headed for the same thing and this time WE are the target as true Biblical Christians.
I see the same things again also with the church. They are seduced and sleepwalking to destruction. They have been sold a new age version of ‘Christianity’ and have swallowed it hook, line, and sinker. I run into professing Christians all the time and see the same thing over and over. They are set up for the one world religion, government, economy, antichrist ‘revival’ and ‘world peace.’ All the ‘hater’ lingo is the platform like you said Cedric! All the ‘blank-o-phobia’ terms are used to cajole the masses into one herd of complicit subjects of the antichrist kingdom that is on the horizon, and we will be here for it too. That’s what the stage is being all set up for. The final chapter of human history under antichrist, for which the likes of hitler’s holocaust were just the dress rehearsal. Why is God allowing this? He has allowed it all throughout church history so it is nothing new, nor have the reasons changed.
So what is a Christian to do? The answer is simple. What did Jesus tell us to do? Nothing changes just because the heat is on, or society’s norms have changed, or pressure is put on the church, or anything else. Jesus did not say; “Carry your cross daily… unless the going gets really tough.”!!! Our duties have not changed and our obligations remain the same. A true disciple will follow Jesus all the way and not just prove to be a ‘fair weather follower’!
First let me say that no one can ‘force’ a Christian to disobey God. Your consent is required. If someone pressures a Christian to do something that is contrary to God, it still requires their consent to do it if they choose to do it. But you can’t force them. Pressure is not force. Persecution is not force. Countless martyrs have gone to the lions because this is true, you cannot force anyone. Some see no alternative because of what they will lose. This is the devil asking; “What’s your price?” And you have named your price. My job. My family. My house. My reputation. My comfort. My life. etc. etc. etc. But don’t all these things belong to God? Our life is not our own? Or is it??? These are the flesh crucifying questions we must all ask ourselves.
If we choose to belong to Jesus, here are a few things He called us to do.
1. He called us to be HIS WITNESSES to the ends of the earth. He did not say in fair weather only. We are ‘the light of the world’ which cannot be hidden. Our job while on this earth is not to live comfortable lives and build our own little kingdoms with our house, families, dog, minivan, and white picket fences. Our job is to be His light, to share the gospel, extend salvation to the lost, speak the truth, let our examples of godly living be a light, be His representative in every way. And that doesn’t change based on anything!
2. We are to pick up our cross and follow Him… DAILY! Picking up your cross is not something that is ‘comfortable.’ It is going against the grain of society. It is making a stand for Jesus even when it is uncomfortable. It is sharing the gospel even if you are laughed at. It is speaking the truth and sharing your beliefs, no matter how ‘odd’ people will think they, and you, are. It is not participating in things that are contrary to the Christian faith. This can take endless forms. One example would be an interfaith moment of silence at work. We cannot participate in that. Someone will ask, “But why?” Answer: “Because I’m a Christian and I cannot participate in ceremonies involving other religions.” Response: “But… but… that’s just ________!” You: “That is my conviction and I must live by it.” And yes, it may lead to your termination. But again, whose slave are you? Welcome to ‘carrying your cross daily.’ For the reader’s information, I was just in a similar situation at work and I did not participate. No one asked me why. But I was ready to ‘give an answer to anyone who asks.’ We must be ready!
3. Prepare for persecution, not for ‘your best life now.’ Folks, these are the days of storm clouds and storms hitting landfall. These are not the days to set yourself up for temptation. These are not the days to be thinking…. “Oh, well… I will go to blank University…. and get blank good prominent job making blank amount of money, so that I can buy this house and have that family and live out the rest of my days in comfort.” All these things will be leverage against you when the devil comes knocking on your door with temptations! You are where you are, but don’t plan for ‘sunny days ahead’. Plan knowing that the storm is going to hit landfall and ‘holocaust weather’ is already on the horizon. It is grimly true. You will save yourself much grief. Remember, when it comes to the things of this world…. we are not going to win.
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1; 8
“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men. “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. “Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished. Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5; 13-19
“What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.” Matthew 10; 27-39
“Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. “Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” Matthew 5; 10-11
“And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death. ” Revelation 12; 11
A good parallel to Philippians 2; 15 is Daniel 12; 3:
“Then the wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.”
And so many more… !
A message of profound truth for the Remnant and for those who sit on the fence, those who are almost apostate but are still reading the Truthkeepers.com. website or FB page. Brothers and sisters, it is time to stand for righteousness and let our lights shine. They want to shut our mouths now, very soon they may be shutting us away in determent camps. All it will take is a change in the Presidency, whether by losing an election (I mean – them stealing an election), by resignation of DT, or quite possibly a coup d’etat by the so-called “deep state” ( really satan and his top minions).
It is time to stand and shout it (Jesus saves) from the rooftops, while we still can, to some degree. I personally am going to “double down” on my witness. On Facebook and in the highways and hedges where God has called me to be ‘light in the darkness’ .
My reply above should have said internment camps instead of determent. An internment camp will deter most, probably. They can effectively silence us by the mark of the beast refusal that we must do, thereby cutting off goods and services to real Christians. No internet or cellphone service goes a long way these days to shutting most people down. I believe it would be a “panic” scenario if people lost their social media communicating ability. Use social media now while we still have it for a platform for our Christian witness.
It is truly a time to think about and plan for survival in a hostile world. Get some extra provisions on hand so we can “hunker down ” in our homes for a while to wait on God’s rescue of those who are ‘accounted worthy’ to ESCAPE all those things that shall come to pass and to STAND before the Son of Man, the Lord Jesus Christ. Listen brothers and sisters: “”33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. 34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and [so] that day come upon you unawares. 35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” [Luk 21:33-36 KJV]. The escape is commonly known as the rapture. I am not pre-trib, for I would not be encouraging you to get prepared if I believed we are going to escape all persecution.
“16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.” [Mat 10:16 KJV]
I agree with all these comments.
Now is the time to prepare. The most important way is spiritually. If we are ready to stand for Jesus no matter the cost… we are ready!
In regards to prepping, we are all in different situations. I have often heard things like “get some land with running water, dirt for farming, a fishing pond” or “build a bunker and stock it with canned food and other supplies” etc. But not all can do that. I can’t just go out and buy some land, no matter what is on it or not. I can’t build a bunker because I rent. I don’t have much space here to store anything. I truly must rely on the Lord. What I was able to do, and I do advise this, is to get some camping supplies. I live on the outskirts of a large city and there are plenty of homeless and I have been involved in helping them so I found out some things. The situation where you folks are may be similar so I will share this. I bought a sleeping bag and a backpack. Get some sturdy shoes and clothes. They all have a tent. They set up in canyons or wherever. Some get basic financial support through the government but not enough to rent in our costly city. (Some of these things will disappear anyway with the mark of the beast, like disability checks, social security, etc.) They have ipads through a government program and if you get Medical you qualify for a free phone with free service. Honestly I stay away from social media because everyone is getting censored now anyway. I save my access for the most vital comments and such. But I can access the real news, like this place. Anyway, many beg for money on street corners and buy small essentials and food. Local charities, homeless shelters, and churches feed them meals daily. There is one such place that offers free access to showers, lockers, and internet access along with a few other things. There are some rivers they also access for water. If you have some supplies lined up now, basic items, like plastic drinking bottles, scissors, notepads and pens, it will help. In the worst case it is good to know about these things. In the best case, even if you are ‘set for retirement’ in the best location, it will all run out once the mark of the beast is rolled out. A good thing to do is run through all the ‘what if’s’. Like, I have a car, but I won’t be able to buy gas. Consider how much you will be able to get out of what you have. If you can’t pay property tax, the government may cease your house anyway, etc. If you have unsaved family who take the mark, you can’t live off of them because they will turn you in. Eventually churches would turn their backs on us as well as everyone else under the antichrist kingdom when it comes to handouts. Yes, pretty dire. But the good news is my God is still a God of miracles. He can feed the masses and preserve us and provide for us as long as we are to be here. Our main purpose on earth is to be His witnesses. I feel like in many ways, the heat is about to be turned up. Natural disasters, political upheaval, persecution, deception, etc. People will be wondering about apocalyptic events and we have an opportunity to share God’s truth with them during this time. Even if all the internet access is cut off, we can use an old fashioned sign on a street corner that reads:
“The end is here. Repent and turn to Jesus and get saved today!”
Or something to that effect.
What I am going to say in this comment is not news. I have been saying this for years. There are published articles and commentaries on my blog and YouTube about my takes on Biblical prophecy subjects. I am fairly new to Facebook land. That platform and YouTube are the only social media that I have ever used and being a FB user has only come about in the last year for me. Right now, I see potential in using it to try to steer people toward Jesus and His salvation. I get some news leads there, also. Millions of eyes are better than one IMO. Being a watchman in these trying days means doing things like FB that I really sort of abhor but see the usefulness thereof. I know that by commenting the way I do on these platforms that I am putting myself “in the cross hairs ” of satanic entities. I am in enemy territory and only God can protect me from ruin. I rely on Him to do just that as I try to expose the demons of hell and earth to seekers of Christ and also Christians who are on the brink of apostacy.
I truly believe that one day soon there will come an upheaval in the USA that will start the final countdown to the tribulation. Yes, the good old United States of Amerika. Here’s the way I see it, in a nutshell. The USA is Israel’s main protector. (at least physically- Michael the archangel is truly her sovereign ace in the hole, but his protection is in the spiritual realm-war in the heavenlies). So as long as President Trump is commander-in-chief of the armed forces, Israel will have the backing of said forces. So, the prophetical wind down to the tribulation (the abomination of desolation will not occur until the USA is neutralized from protecting Israel) is hindered by political realities. I wrote a commentary about 4-5 years ago about the start of the tribulation and the abomination of desolation-https://wordpress.com/post/heyjude15.wordpress.com/8356
I know C.H.’s article is NOT specifically about end-times Biblical prophecy, but I try to take every opportunity to try and show people how these end days MIGHT resolve. I do this because I believe the world is right on the cusp of ‘great tribulation’.I am sure I am not right on all points of my interpretations of prophecy. I really do not consult any other individual’s opinions when I write. I take Scripture as literally I can and use my logical mind to figure out ‘what COULD happen’ in the near future, Biblically speaking.
As far as prepping for the future, I do have a few things that might help us get by for a while. This conversation is prompting me to take stock of my provisions and update what little I have, a bit more. I say the USA must “go down”, so to speak, before the tribulation starts. I live in this United States of Amerika. God help us !!
ps….If anyone reads my Daniel 9:26-27 commentary and wants to give feedback, you can do that through Hey Jude 15.
Yes, I’m not saying one should not use social media for these things.
But what I noticed, as this happened to me as well as many others, is that the conservatives are being censored. It keeps getting worse. So the more you say, and the later you say it, the bigger the chances of being censored. I have pretty much said it all so to speak in so many sites on different media platforms so it’s not that I’m worried about anything or I would not have done that. But what happens is that suppose someone says something that is in the crosshairs of what is being targeted by the censorers and they shut down your FB or whatever. Now I think about it like this. What is the point of having a platform, if you can’t use it for what you intend. I have no other use for FB or any other venue if it wouldn’t be for getting the word out. It would be totally useless to me. So if I can’t use it to warn, it is useless to me and I might as well not even have it. If I use it to warn but it happens to be one of those hot items and I get censored or banned, then the platform is gone anyway. I can’t use it then either. So I operate one way in one arena and another way with FB. In some places I warn of everything, or this or that. With FB I don’t post everything that crosses my mind. Honestly, no one looks there anyway in my case and that’s a long story. But I have access to other FB pages and can post comments there all the time. Then, when something really big comes up I have the access to make that big pivotal comment. Some places only have a FB page for contact. There are some people we may only be able to get a hold of that way and warn. So I save it for stuff like that and if it gets blocked at that time, fine, nothing else I can do. So it’s sort of like saving certain arrows for when you really need them, and using others for other things otherwise. I also consider the audience. The world is lost and pretty much past getting that certain things are sins. I’m not going to waste my last arrow reminding them of that unless I feel lead to. The apostate church is in another camp and there are certain things they need to hear. The remnant is in another boat and requires another form of ministry, such as encouragement, warnings, fellowship, etc. So I tailor things at different places in different ways with different platforms accordingly. Now that’s just what I do, I’m not telling anyone else what to do, the reader may have a totally different strategy that is just as good in a different way because they are in a different situation. If we do what we feel the Lord leading us to do, all is good.
Thank you for not shying away from the truth Cedric, your articles, albeit our countries are far apart, are always spot on. I don’t think you can ever realize exactly what an encouragement it is to have ‘contact’ with like-minded people the world over.
Thank you, C.H. I needed this today.
