Can You Hear Me Now? :: by Grant Phillips

Our politically correct socialistic mindset is satanically inspired and is accomplishing its goal of removing any vestige of Jesus Christ from the public arena.

A popular cellphone company coined the phrase, “Can you hear me now?” The day will come when God may say to all those who have trampled the name of Jesus Christ, “Can you hear me now?”

The “political correctness” that government and society has been cramming down the throats of the American citizens has long passed the point of ludicrous insanity. The feel-good crowd of our society, many even in church circles, has gone off the deep end. These brainless, modern-day beatniks actually think they can bring about the “love society” by their changing a few words and removing the only hope this world has; i.e. Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

Mankind has never been able to develop a perfect society, and it never will. History has proven it over and over, but these airheads just don’t get it. The more man attempts to bring about a John Lennon world (Imagine), the more corrupt it becomes. “Why?” because this world wants nothing to do with the one and only true God. Man is totally corrupt. If maggots were sin, there would be no flesh left on the bones of mankind.

Some even in the church think that they will eventually bring peace and happiness to this world by their watered down, prosperity, feel-good gospel. I don’t know what they’re sniffing, but it sure ain’t coffee. Only God can bring true peace and happiness to this runaway hell-bound world, and that is a fact. He will prove that during the Millennium and on into eternity after Satan is deposed once and for all.

Today, various groups from our own governmental authorities to the ACLU are ridding any vestige of anything related to Jesus Christ. Our founding fathers would turn over in their graves if they could know how far we have turned away from God. This country was meant to be a Christian nation, and it was for a while, but now our so-called leader is correct, we are not a Christian nation. We, as a country and various groups and individuals, are spitting in the face of God, and want nothing to do with Him, and could care less what He has to say. The really sad part is they are dragging millions of others with them to the White Throne judgment, and they will listen then, but regrettably too late.

At the White Throne judgment they will be reminded how they felt and reacted toward the Son of God, and never repented by putting their faith in Him as their Savior instead of themselves and their own grandiose ideas. Today they are deaf, (pardon me, hearing impaired), but then they will listen. Could it be that the Lord will say, “Can you hear me now?” Whether He does or doesn’t, His final words will be,

“And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” (Mathew 7:23)

What horrible words to hear from God! The finality of it! The Lord warns.

“And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” (Revelation 20:11-15)

As I type, there is a movement afoot to destroy this country, and it’s moving along nicely, because so many of us are asleep, lulled by the sirens of evil. Some are beginning to notice that something is not right, while others follow along to the tune of the Pied Piper and his flute.

I personally believe it is too late for us as a country, but it is not too late for us individually to turn to Jesus. It is not too late for Christians to throw away their pacifier and grow up.

Jesus is coming soon. No, I don’t know when, but it is up to us, while we wait, to sound the wake-up call to a fallen world. It is harder to witness today than it was when I was a teenager, simply because so much sin has crept in, and people generally are not interested. I remember when even the most hardened person still showed respect to the things of God, but not today. Today, anything related to God is hated, and that includes His Church, but we still must try.

If God can love humanity so much He is willing to become one of us, and take our place for the judgment of sin, surely we can love one another enough to open our mouths to those who need to hear about Jesus. So we may get snubbed, so what! The Apostles, the early Church, and those Christians reallysuffering for Christ today should be our examples. Jesus tells us,

“And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.” (Luke 12:4-5)

Now Jesus is not saying or even implying that Christians could lose their salvation. He wants us to fear enough for others to tell them about Him. He also wants us to understand that no man, not even Satan, has any power over one who belongs to Him. They may kill our body, but they don’t have power over our soul, our eternal destiny with Jesus Christ. That rests in the hands of God Almighty.

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.” (John 10:27-30)

My fellow Christians, so far, we don’t have to fear persecution to that extreme in this country, but the day may come. We see things today we would never have thought possible yesterday.
