The “left” is steadily trying to get “vote by mail” and “no voter ID” laws passed. With all the voting irregularities that have been obvious in the past few elections, no one is really surprised by their motives. When the Speaker of the House made the statement that we must protect the “illegals’ constitutional rights,” it should have been a total wake-up call. However, there’s so much socialistic, anti-establishment money floating around, it barely raised an eyebrow. (emphasis mine)
Couple this with an almost totally liberal news media that only reports negativity toward anything truly constitutional and, heaven forbid, anything remotely pertaining to Jesus, and what you have is the setup being put in place for the New World Order. Allah, Buddha and any other false god is fine to talk about, and even to be taught in public schools. Anything biblical, though, is somehow a violation that is dealt with severely. Sadly, even the liberal lower courts are playing a role in getting us prepared for the arrival of the ultimate evil one, and the Supreme Court is starting to lean more to the left every day.
For people who put their true faith in our Lord and Savior, these are cautious, yet exciting times. At the present time, for someone to drive a vehicle, cash a check, and in many places even to go to work, they must present some form of identification in order to be “legal.” States even provide personal identification cards that resemble driver licenses, so people can conduct their personal business. To say that “illegals” should be allowed such cards misses an important point, and that is that “illegal” means against the law. This sounds very simple, but many of our elected representatives want to allow illegals to vote, so the scales can be tipped in their favor.
One day in the near future, it won’t matter what a citizen’s residential or political status is, but rather, whether or not they have chosen to totally worship the Antichrist, and, therefore, worship Satan. All who refuse to accept the “mark” whatever it will be, will be subject to martyrdom. Everything pertaining to the current “pandemic” is preparing the people to be ready to accept such a requirement without question. Otherwise, they will not be allowed to buy, sell or even live without complying with the beast’s demands. By the way, everything taking place due to the Covid crisis is not new and has been in the planning stages for years.
Our Lord and Savior made it very plain that His “flock” would not need an ID card or mark. All who have truly received and accepted His gift of Salvation have the Holy Spirit living within each of us. No one but those who have Jesus have a way to the Father, and ultimately an eternal heavenly home (John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 8:1 and Romans 10: 9-13).
No one will be able to “con” their way into eternal life with Jesus.
John 10:11, “Truly, truly, I say to you; he who does not enter the sheep-fold by the door, but climbs in by another way, that man/woman is a thief and a robber.”
John 10: 7-9, “So Jesus again said to them, truly, truly I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who came before Me are thieves and robbers; but the sheep [true believers] did not listen to them. I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he/she will be saved, and go in and out and find pasture.”
John 10:14-16, “I am the Good Shepherd. I know My own, and My own know Me; just as the Father knows Me, and I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. And I have other sheep [this includes everyone worldwide] that are not of this fold [Jews]. I must bring them also, and they will listen to My voice. So, there will be one flock; one Shepherd.”
This offer is for everyone, but few will accept and receive it (Matthew 7:13-14).
Finally, John 10:27-30, “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. I give them eternal life [completed at Calvary], and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. I and the Father are One!”
When Jesus talks about the “flock,” it’s like referring to the parable of the sower. For example, Matthew 13:3-8; “And He told them many things in parables, saying; A sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seeds fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured them. Other seeds fell on rocky ground where they did not have much soil, and immediately they sprang up since they had no depth of soil; but when the sun rose, they were scorched; and since they had no root, they withered away. Other seeds fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them. Other seeds fell on good soil, and produced grain; some a hundred fold; some sixty; some thirty.” (See also Mark 4:2-8 and Luke 8:4-8)
The first three seeded areas are all “worldly-based.” They range from totally rejecting the Savior, to actually hearing the word, becoming momentarily enthused, and then going back to the old ways without sincerely calling on Jesus. There never was a solid base for their relationship to “take root” and grow.
The final seeds are sowed on fertile soil or in the pure word of the Lord. Over time, the seeds grow and multiply, just as our devotion to the Lord grows stronger. We begin to think more on heavenly eternal things, rather than the lure of this sinful world. We will slip and sin, but just as growing seeds need to be cared for, we begin to get rid of the “weeds” (habitual sin) around us. Our nourishment is in the love of our Father for us through His Son, Jesus (John 3:16-18; Romans 5:8 and many others).
Jesus knows who are His own, just as the Father knows who are, and also will be; and those who are under the wicked deception, He sends them a strong delusion so they will believe what is false (2 Thessalonians 2:10-11). Some may say this isn’t fair, but the word has been available, and men/women have known since the creation that there is a God. Even though they knew it, they chose to worship images of mortal man, birds, animals and creeping things (Romans 1:18-32).
Romans 2:6-8 is a strong warning, “He will render to each one according to his/her works; to those who by patience in well doing, seek for glory and honor and immortality, will give eternal life; but for those who are self-seeking (“ME” syndrome) and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury.”
It should be noted again, we are not saved by “works”, but through the Grace and Mercy of our Heavenly Father (Ephesians 2:8-9). The two greatest commandments are to Love God and each other. By doing so, we follow what Jesus told us to do, and are doing His “work” on this earth.
There is a day of reckoning coming very soon. Paul describes the start of the process in 1 Corinthians 15:51-53, and 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17. It will be the Rapture to take all true believers out of the coming wrath to be with Jesus. The following seven years will be horrible, and the majority of people on earth during that time will perish.
As stated, no special ID is needed. All who call on Jesus to be their Savior will be saved (Acts 2:21; Romans 10:9-13). Jesus paid our admission fee in full on that cruel cross, and asks that we accept His gift by asking His forgiveness and to be our Savior. The exciting part is, He will be returning very soon, and we are the generation that will see it. The clock started ticking on this generation on May 14, 1948, when Israel became a sovereign nation once again after nearly 2,000 years.
The world (Satan) cannot offer anything except a spot in the Lake of Fire. Jesus is offering a forever home, which He personally will prepare for each of us (John 14:1-3). Call on Him today, as tomorrow could be too late. Shalom!
