I have been preaching and teaching on the coming Apocalypse for many years, yet there is one thing, more than anything else, that will start the final countdown. This one thing is the alarming growth of lukewarm Christianity throughout the entire world. One might point to the dark ages in church history and claim that must have been the worst era of lukewarm Christianity. I would object. Although this particular era in history did produce rank immorality, most people in Christendom held to a quasi-religion established by the Catholic Church. This drove most believers to obtain a certain level of righteousness, if not for the sake of conscience, then out of stark fear of the unknown or the fires of eternal damnation. Even after the Reformation when many believers escaped the tyranny of the Catholic Church, most were held steadfast by the printing of the Bible that in time became available for the common man. However, it was after the great missionary effort, that took God’s Word around the globe, where believers in Christ began to drift. This drift toward lukewarm Christianity was caused primarily by the new world philosophies, the acceptance of psychiatry, and the growth of secularism. This drift continued unabated for two hundred years to the modern era which has produced lukewarm Christianity, in the classic sense, on a much grander scale encompassing most believers. We will examine this significant growth of lukewarm Christianity in our time and specifically its relationship with the coming apocalypse.

How much do you want to see the face of God? If you are not interested read no further. The first step is to stop following evil. The Bible says, “Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God” (III John 1:11). This is the most difficult step because in our minds we have not crossed the line by doing evil. In our minds, we say, “We have not done evil, we have only observed it.” We live in a world of observers. That’s what we do. From morning till night we follow evil by observing it. Before you object, ask yourself how many times have you shared the evil in the world with others, in person or on Social Media. Satan has tricked our minds into believing that as long as we sit in the comfort of our own homes observing evil on television or YouTube or Social Media then we have not done anything wrong. We have tricked our minds, with a little help from Satan, into believing that we have not crossed the line by following evil. We object by saying, we are just observing it! Yet, to observe evil constantly is to follow it. How did we ever get here? Continue reading Do You Want to See the Face of God?
For the first time in world history, there is a multitude of blind guides in every segment of secular society and religious life promising to guide you into an enlightened truth. With all these guides in our world today we are forced to ask the question, “Which one has eyesight to see the whole truth?” To be partially blind to the truth, or mixing truth with a lie, still makes you a blind guide leading your followers into the pit of inevitable consequences of following a lie. A true word from Jesus Christ is not to let these blind guides overcome you or cause you anxiety (See Matthew 15:14). With God’s help, we can confront all these lies from every source in both society and religious life as they are brought before us through listening or reading. This is possible my dear friends, if we truly hide God’s Word in our hearts and learn how to listen to the indwelling Spirit. When we do this, we will be able to expose and confront every lie. We will also be able to free those who have been taken captive to follow the lies of the enemy. Continue reading Are You Following a Blind Guide?
If you could write one more article, or make one last speech, or record one last video for mankind what would you say? More importantly, what would God want to say through you for all of mankind? What would be His final Word to mankind? I believe He would simply and very powerfully say, “you can’t do it.” What? You cannot really change mankind. All of your laws, all of your grandiose teachings from your professors of higher learning, and, all of your well-thought-out peace deals will not change mankind. All of your psychiatrist, psychotherapist, psychologist and all of your pleading, counseling, and social programs will not change mankind. Finally, all of your religious teachings will not even change mankind. Only one thing will. Only transformation in Jesus Christ through faith will ever completely change mankind from the inside out. Only transformation in Christ will change an undisciplined beast full of lies and deceitfulness into a beautiful new creation full of love, truth, and righteousness. Here’s the question, “is the world still trying to change you or are you being transformed in Christ?” Before you answer that question let’s take a closer look. Continue reading The Final Word to Mankind
Dear Christian, it’s time to fight back using the very powerful weapons of righteousness. It’s time to fight back, but not with the weapons of this world. The weapons of this world, used by the carnal Christian, has nearly destroyed the beautiful message of the Cross. It has turned the pagan against us, unwilling to listen to our message. The hateful rhetoric on social media, the memes, and the sharing of demeaning messages about the other side has caused the unbeliever to hate us that much more. As the walls go up, the dividing lines are drawn, and communication ceases, then hostilities toward the Christian community increases exponentially. I think everyone will admit that the weapons of this world don’t work in winning the hearts and minds of the unbeliever. We have closed the door to heaven for people and nations that are steeped in their sins or worship an unknown god. We simply cannot damn them to hell. Although the Bible is clear that we should not cast our pearls before the swine, with the warning that they can turn on us, we must admit that not all people should be classified as the unreachable swine ready to rip us apart (See Matthew 7:6). So, what can be done for the rest? Continue reading A Righteous Army of Light Will Overcome the Powers of Darkness
