Dark Days :: By Daniel Payne

Warning: what follows is not coated in sugar.

As far as in our flesh—not in our spirit—it feels like all we’re accomplishing these days is to literally just sit around and be miserable while waiting for even worse and more depressing things to happen in the near future that are seemingly beyond our control.

When are decent people going to wake up? Are they blind, or do they just not care? Denial? Apathy? Support? What is it?

Why does “polite” society turn a blind eye and allow such deceptive tyranny to creep its way over our entire lives? Why do we put up with dangerous lies and truth-twisting by the so-called free press?

Are people not aware that the “news” media is not looking out for our best interests?

Satan and his sons are cruel beings. They legally murder unborn children and mate with other men, so what should we expect? They legally rape and pillage while living their virtual lives—playing their vile video “games” and watching their favorite shows of violence and depravity. They’re just chomping at the bit to be let free to perform their violent and depraved acts in real life.

Why are so many forms of cruel and violent “entertainment” allowed to be devoured by anyone of any age? What?! You can’t just hand a toddler a bag of hornets and expect them not to look inside.

Why are people legally allowed to virtually stab, shoot, rape, and torture other people, or watch others do the same, all from the comfort of their own bedrooms and living rooms? What the hades do people think is going to happen when the power goes out?

Is there any denying just how bloodthirsty our society has become? How many people support and cheer on the bloody and violent cage matches of the UFC? How many views and “likes” do scenes of violence receive on social media?

The sons of Satan are without natural affection. They’re lower than animals. They’re unnatural beasts running straight toward hell. There’s no way in hades that all of the violent men of the past, and their kind that history has recorded for all to see—have suddenly just all gone away.

A wolf cannot truly become a sheep. However, a wolf can temporarily transform itself into a sheep by wearing sheep’s clothing.

“And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works” (Corinthians 11:14-15).

They can put on a coat and tie, but the good deeds of “righteousness” they preach are all false morality. Anyone who is repulsed by the depraved acts they support is labeled a bigot or a racist. They’re false accusers, just like their true father.

“…for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down” (Revelation 12:10b).

The dog was always a dog, before, and after it returned to its own vomit.

“But it has happened to them according to the true proverb: ‘A dog returns to his own vomit…’” (2 Peter 2:22a).

The pig was always a pig, before, and after it returned to its filthy pen.

“…and ‘a sow, having washed, (returns) to her wallowing in the mire” (2 Peter 2:22b).

They were just pretending to be righteous while remaining filthy and vile the entire time, according to their true nature. They are those who are injecting their venom into the helpless prey of the so-called free world.

Dear people of the Lord, has any of this taken our everlasting Father by surprise? Absolutely not, and you can take comfort in that fact.

Will these dark days ever be turned to light? Yes! Don’t let Satan and his sons get you depressed. God has a plan to deal with the complete depravity we are witnessing today.

“He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead” (Acts 17:31).

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
