Contrary to popular belief and the nonsense notions of low information fanciers of everything nascent and pop-culture in our society, Satan is not the guy doing parlor tricks at the local gathering of witches and warlocks.
He is the god of this world and the arch deceiver of men on all levels, but especially of those in high places. He gives political power, wealth and fame to whoever he likes. Some receive it for a price, like the Hollywood sellouts that will do or say anything on screen for spectacular remuneration. He gives success to those who will espouse and promote anything contrary to God’s law and his gospel.
The largest group he supplies is those with nothing better to do than to go along with the crowd. A basic need to fit in with the acceptable trends of the day is all it takes to win this loose crowd of self-absorbed, mindless, sheeply followers.
He uses kings, presidents, lawmakers, judges and officials of all kinds and his armies consist of both leaders and followers, he is no respecter of persons.
His tools are media, pop-culture, mis-information and spiritual deception. He has no age barriers and will take the deceived at any age from childhood to the elderly.
It would seem that all a person needed to avoid being deceived is to believe that he (Satan) exists. But the world view of religion is that something is only true if you believe it enough, as in, your faith in it – is what makes it true. Satanic influence is not in that category. It is true whether it is believed or not. The telling of it to humanity is only to make men accountable. No one will be able to say they were not told.
Those who believe Satan is the arch deceiver are not the nefelibata as assumed, but rather, it is those who do not believe that are under the deadly spell.
The object of his deception is the direct or indirect worship of himself and his plans. It all has a destination which the Bible calls the “day of evil’ (Pr 16: 4) in which he will finally be worshipped in the man known as – the antichrist.
The deception that sweeps across the globe in the last days does not take decades to complete. After about a generation of preparation, the changes we thought we could believe in will culminate in the seven year-long rule of the antichrist. Near the end of his rule the trumpets of God will be heard around the world and then a time of severe worldwide judgment will begin and will not end until a triumphant Christ (Jesus Christ) will be seen descending to the city of Jerusalem, specifically to the Mount of Olives from where he ascended. (Zech 14: 4)
America’s three pronged plunge into reprobation – No politics can solve this dilemma
- Over 40 years past America decided that nine Supreme Court justices got it right when they ruled that women could legally abort (murder) another human being. The battle to stop this genocide has raged since then, but to no avail. Under the Obama administration it has reached all new heights and taxpayers and working class people have begun to pay for these abortions.
- America was the first nation to recognize Israel’s statehood when she became a free and independent nation in 1948. Since then most presidents have supported Israel unequivocally. Today for the first time under Barack Obama that recognition has waned and fluttered to the point that most Americans now believe that in a showdown between Muslim nations and Israel, Barack Obama would throw Israel under the bus in an instant.
- Thirty seven states now allow “same sex marriage” and the Supreme Court is once again on the cusp of allowing the general acceptance, streamlining and lawful practice of this perversion throughout the nation.
These three points do not represent all that has gone wrong with America, but they are the peaks of presumption and the top reasons why God’s hand of protection and the endurance of his mercy are about to be pushed to the limits. What limits?
We are approaching the end of the allotted “time to repent” sometimes it is called the “space to repent” (Rev 2: 21) and it is that period of time given to individuals and nations to wise up to the fact that they are on a clear pathway to destruction.
Some preparations to head off this absurd plunge into vain pop-culture influence on the high court have been enacted in at least one state. Alabama. Senate Bill 377 was passed 22-3 on May 19, 2015. The bill abolishes the requirement to obtain a license for marriage from the judge of probate. This basically would provide a contract, but not require a false ceremony of marriage to take place. It would alleviate the need for churches to involve themselves in what is clearly antithetical to all the Bible teaches about the sanctity of marriage between one man and one woman.
Presidential candidate Ted Cruz (R) has submitted legislation that would only allow states to define what marriage is and would essentially remove all decision making from judges on any level, local, state or federal.
Because the bill would require a Constitutional amendment, few believe it has any chance of passing, but it is the kind of bravado (thank you Ted) that Cruz is known for and it is proof that if we don’t give in to the next worse incursion into insanity that the Supreme Court has ever taken besides Roe v. Wade, someone may find a way to circumvent this leave of our national senses.
Will the church get off the fence and fight – It is now or never!
It is well known that the church is flying into apostasy as prophesied, but that also means that some Christians will do more and become far bolder than ever before.
At the very worst hour in human history, when antichrist is enjoying his tumultuous short reign over every nation, tongue and tribe of the earth, it is said that under the greatest pressure the people of God will do “exploits.” (Dan 11: 32) It is not hard to imagine that some of the bravest and most dedicated Christians here in America will put it all on the line to resist this aberration of marriage, the law and of nature itself.
Churches may have to give up their 501-C exempt status, or in some cases break off into smaller cell groups like the first century church or many of the churches in China today, but whatever it takes will be what God expects.
Paying salaries to clergy, selling tons of Christian books and paraphernalia may slow or come to a halt, but we won’t see the proverbial picture we have painted so well until today, namely, “ding dong preacher man sitting on a fence – trying to make a dollar out of fifteen cents.”
The only examples we have seen lately have been fence straddling copouts and it is time to see what surrendered Christians can do.
The list of apostates grows by the day. Wimping out to the perversion of the gay agenda has seen them falling in every walk and profession across the board. Recently, we have seen Rick Warren, Dolly Parton, Bono, Amy Grant, Megyn Kelley, Eddie Long and a plethora of others bend to the pop-culture trends of the day, to the arch deceiver himself – it is due season for the Christians to stand.
The first wave of judgment – take it or leave it
I will make no apologies for my calling and message, I will offer no argument nor will I receive any. I will only tell what I have seen and heard as my Lord has before me.
“He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony. He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.” (John 3: 31-33)
I cannot think of anything I would rather not say to the people of the nation I love, but I was clearly informed that I must say it until the day that I die. The only question is, would I say it if I had to die for saying it, and the answer to that is a simple – yes.
America will shortly undergo a complete economic crash that will rival anything the crash of “29” ever produced. Extreme poverty and scarcity will prevail for millions.
Is it a stock market crash or the result of an EMP, this I cannot say, but whatever causes it is – forthwith!
Hundreds of times, perhaps thousands of times in the last nearly fifty years I have seen bits and pieces of the future, not once has it ever been an error. God’s voice to me is on a “what you see is what you get” basis.
What I see is a nation that will not hear what God has said about its failing morality – but it will hear what God is saying about its soon to fail economy.
I have been asked many times why God would be so severe on this once great nation. This question may be the easiest of all to answer – to wit:
“And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?” (Lu 12: 47-49)
