Apostasy and anarchy – have you noticed the similarities between the two? They are twins in that both are shadows of their former selves. One involves the secular, and the other the religion of our country, and are today unabashedly and morally corrupt. Even evangelicals are slipping and falling in between the cracks into the muddy mire of corruption. Can you say adultery, vice, homosexuality, and other perversions?
As many readers are aware, we are living in perilous times, with governments toppling, wars raging, and weather patterns changing drastically. Something appears to be in the wind. How much longer can humanity hold out?
My friend Stanley (an Orthodox Jew) and his wife Carol are scared out of their wits like everyone else who isn’t Bible savvy, and I’m encouraged to have them over for dinner to talk things out. Their concern is about the state of the nation with all that’s going on in Washington right now.
Under the tyrannical rule of lawless, mentally ill Democrats, the government is now run like an organized crime syndicate. John W. Whitehead of The Rutherford Institute sums it all up perfectly in a recent column:
“All of us are in danger.
In an age of prosecutions for thought crimes, pre-crime deterrence programs, and government agencies that operate like organized crime syndicates, there is a new kind of tyranny being imposed on those who dare to expose the crimes of the Deep State, whose reach has gone global.
The Deep State has embarked on a ruthless, take-no-prisoners, all-out assault on truth-tellers.
Activists, journalists and whistleblowers alike are being terrorized, traumatized, tortured and subjected to the fear-inducing, mind-altering, soul-destroying, smash-your-face-in tactics employed by the superpowers-that-be…
Following the current downward trajectory, it won’t be long before anyone who believes in holding the government accountable is labeled an “extremist,” is relegated to an underclass that doesn’t fit in, must be watched all the time, and is rounded up when the government deems it necessary.
Eventually, we will all be potential suspects, terrorists and lawbreakers in the eyes of the government.” – Source
At the same time, Benjamin Netanyahu, like President Trump, is being accused of corruption; and his governing body is under strain. (Could it be that the same Satanic forces that are hounding President Trump are out to topple the Israeli government as well?)
And it gets worse. Corruption has infiltrated the church as well. With new man-made ideas, programs and “Shows,” they hope to reach the masses of Bible-illiterate young people with entertainment when what they really need is the unadulterated Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Entertainment is only good for a fleeting moment of time, but the Gospel is forever. “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my word endures forever.” So says the Lord of hosts (countless many).
Apostasy is gripping the church, and many are crying out to be swept away in the rapture, dirty clothes and all.
But the Church has become a playground for Satan. God has let him loose to wreak havoc in many a congregation with extremely loud and uninspired music written by uninspired men and women for the sake of a good show. Women have taken over the pulpit, and homosexuals have been let in to run the “Show.” They ought to have at least acknowledged their sin and repented before gaining entrance. Instead, they are mounting the pulpit too.
“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” “But God has laid upon Him (Jesus) the iniquity of us all.”
We are being shaken to the core so that all that remains is a complete dependence on God Almighty. No more cocky attitudes, social clubs, dressing the part to cover our nakedness as in – “whitewashed sepulchers full of dead men’s bones,” God is cleaning house once and for all. He wants an unblemished and holy wife at the marriage supper of the Lamb, not a wimpy social climber out to impress others with their fake holiness.
Even though we have been blessed with things unnecessary to life (look inside your garage), we are still hungering for something more. We need spiritual food that can only be found in the word of God – and to adhere to it in deep humility. As this Spiritual war wages on in government and the church, if we are not careful, we could be deceived into believing the lies of the enemy (Satan) – as so many already have.
If ever there was a time to get our act together, it is now. The time for “playing church” is over. We must get real, and many of us must repent for our apathy. We have a lot of catching up to do as quickly as possible as prophecy unfolds at an alarming rate.
I know all this sounds preachy, but these are serious times that call for serious reflection and repentance. We Christians have been dozing off at the wheel and are in for a rude shaking in the days ahead; and if we don’t wake up, we will fall prey to apostasy and anarchy.
Don’t be left behind to face the unimaginable horror that awaits those who chose to deny the signs of the times. Those who know our God can rest in assurance that He will prevail and bring about His eternal kingdom of bliss and harmony. Hope to see you there.
