It’s easy to tell if a person has given themselves over to the dark side.
The other day I stopped by my local Publix supermarket for some soup. As I was perusing the multitude of endless kinds on the shelves, I felt a slight push as if someone was trying to reach over my shoulder. After a couple of jabs, I turned to face a younger man – not six inches from my face. He appeared to be trying to reach something just above my head. I stepped aside, and as I did so, I looked directly into the man’s eyes. His once white eyeballs were now blackened by tattoo ink. The man’s head and neck were also covered in “tats.”
Not being the sort of man who would be shocked by anything (I’ve seen it all), I didn’t give him the kind of reaction he was seeking. (No doubt, the devil put him up to it, knowing I was a child of God.) When he opened his mouth to say, “I’m sorry,” I could make out his forked tongue inside his grinning mouth. I shuddered not out of fear but to think someone would be crazy enough to do such an ugly thing to his body.
Nothing surprises me these days as the world gets weirder and weirder. Blue hair has been with us since the days of hippies as the “let it all hang out” color of the day, but purple, red and rainbow are in vogue these days. Anything to get attention. Even women who are our usually docile and loving counterparts are being affected. They, too, have tattoos covering their bodies and dress so provocatively as to make a grown man cringe and even gag. Would a man in his right mind want a woman like that to bear his children? Then a young woman wonders why she can’t get a hard-working accountant or young doctor interested in them. On the other hand, the same can be said of a young, aimless, drug-addled activist male. What they need is a bath, a haircut, and a Bible.
Children are no exception, and many are growing without the knowledge and fear of God. And so, we can expect children today to grow up to be obstinate and against God in all things. And when you hate God, you hate others, your appearance, and ultimately your very being. After all, we are created in the image of God. Is it any wonder the Godless choose to alter their appearance to appear crazed and/or demon possessed?
In the first book of the Bible (Genesis 1:26), God says to Jesus, “Let us Make man in our very own likeness and image. Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps over the earth.” God never meant for people to debase themselves in such ways. He trusted humankind to love their uniqueness and praise Him for His creativity and having made man in His very own likeness and image.
“Then the Lord saw that wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was evil continually. And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.”
And so, knowing that it would happen again at the end of days, the Bible says, “As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be at the coming of the Son of Man.” Christ Jesus.
The man of Sin roams the earth, ready to take center stage as the Anti-Christ who will rule the one-world government. Already there are many anti-Christs who despise the One who died for them – in their stead.
Having been blinded by Satan, the unrepentant continue to snub the God who created them and set up idols to Baphomet during the Christmas season.
In the meantime, it looks like God, in His loving kindness, is trying to get our attention in any way He can, first by letting the evil invent ways to destroy one another with bioweapons. (Since mankind is eternal, everyone will ultimately be called to answer to Him – determining where they will spend eternity. So, although we can destroy the body, only God can destroy both body and soul. But although we shudder at the thought of death, God sees the death of a human only as sleep. (Jesus could raise the dead and often said that the person was asleep.)
Secondly, He, by signs and wonders in the earth and skies, will provoke people to wonder. And some, being struck by fear, will turn to God because of what is going on in the world. Yesterday, there were violent earthquakes close to home in California. UFOs are showing up again in various parts of the country. The only explanation is that they are entities from another galaxy or another dimension. Several years ago, I was a witness to such a sighting that I document in my manuscript “Miracles, Signs and Wonders” and may still have a video of somewhere. (Keep in mind that I’ve never so much as smoked a joint, much less used other hallucinatory drugs.)
As if that wasn’t enough, I had an encounter with God, who said (audibly) to me to “Get these man-made ideas and philosophies out of your life and plant your feet firmly on the foundation Jesus Christ as already set.” This happened because I was reading material contradictory to what the Bible says about the issue of faith, namely man-made ideas and philosophies such as Psycho-Cybernetics, Think and Grow Rich, The Power of Positive Thinking, and other such material that was prevalent during the seventies.
Since then, I’ve learned that “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.” “The just shall live by faith,” and “Without faith it is impossible to please God.”
So, as you see more and more weirdness coming to the fore – it is an indication that the Great Tribulation period is close at hand. It will be a time when people will need a chip implanted in their hand to buy and sell in the marketplace. ALERT: Chips are being made even as we speak, and some people are already taking them – on a lark.
Is there any turning back to the time when things were commonplace and ordinary? Not very likely, as weird happenings are getting more and more weird. Pray to God that you will be spared.
