Finding Our Way in a World of Confusion

In the beginning, Christianity was called the Way because it showed those living in darkness how to find their way to the light. Unfortunately, we once again have lost our way as the whole world stumbles around in darkness with little power and no direction. Once again, we have become like little children seeking to learn the first principles of our faith. Instead of following the Way, new converts are congratulated for accepting Christ and then given a few do’s and don’ts, particularly about Church membership, but never shown the Way. They may even impress upon the new believers their need to speak calmly, not to lose their temper, and not curse. On the outside, they learn well how to act like Christians as they become experts at hiding their true intentions, their anger, their frustration, and even their lack of faith. They think that they are following the Way, but they are still in darkness. As a result, the Church keeps dividing with every new doctrine re-discovered or highlighted by self-righteous man. They say, “Come over here for I have found the way,” and the church is divided once again. It’s rather tragic as everyone learns how to express his own small opinion, allowing the world’s humanistic ways to flood the Church.

On the other hand, we must rediscover the Way or all will be lost. Fallen humanity rejoices as the dividing lines between all the different religions and faiths begin to fade. They glory in the fact that secular humanism is the thread that holds them all together as the true Way becomes lost in the annals of Christian history. Secular humanism has allowed mankind to develop his own way that fits neatly into any world religion and the social fabric of the entire world. This new way teaches mankind how he can overcome all of his emotional and psychological problems while winking at the god of his choice. When disaster strikes the church leaders are not summoned to help the distressed, rather they turn to the professional secular counselors in each country, contrary to their religious preference, to render counsel. The new world religion has already arrived showing people the false way and they wonder why their lives don’t improve. They wonder why they still need to struggle with depression. They wonder why they still struggle with anxiety and loneliness. They wonder quietly among their selves where’s the power to change. However, God’s beloved children, His faithful remnant, will not only rediscover the Way but they will walk in it, to the glory of God.

To discover the Way, we must leave the darkness and come fully into the light believing that God will give us everything we need for life and godliness (See II Peter 1:3-4). Some say that this is a leap of faith because the world and everything in the world teaches the opposite. From the cradle to the grave they teach you that you must solve your own problems. This is made possible through their higher schools of learning, their great thinkers, scientist, doctors, and professionals of psychiatry. Yet, it is God the Creator of all that exists who promises to give His children everything they need for life and godliness. God created you and knows exactly what you need, so that information must come from Him alone. Christ wants to show us a new and living Way. In fact, He is the Way. He is the great power that holds everything together. This same creative power will make us into a new creation so that Christ can come and dwell in us through the Holy Spirit. As we learn how to pray and meditate to the Father through Christ then He brings the Bible to life showing us that He alone has the answers to depression and every other emotional and psychological problem. He begins His work inside us showing us how to control our thoughts that lead to action. Step by step we are transformed into the perfect image of His Son, Jesus Christ.

So, if Christ is in us giving us the light of His glory then why would we run back to the world allowing them to teach us how to live life? Here is the problem, most who call upon the Name of Christ attempt to live in both worlds at the same time. They seek to live in the light while living in the darkness. In so doing they are led into greater confusion. I am not asking you to accept Christ, I am asking you to follow Him, for He is the Way. If you truly believe that Christ has made you into a new creation, where old things have passed away; and you also believe that He will give you everything you need for life and godliness, then there is only one thing left. We must die to self so that we can follow Jesus Christ in the Way. We learn very quickly that we can’t, but He can. We must allow Christ to do His work through us. That’s why true believers always give God all the glory. The Spiritual gifts are His gifts working through us casting out evil, raising the sick, and doing great wonders and miracles. The power of our witness is Jesus Christ working through us to breakdown walls and overcome empires. The more we die to self, the more Christ works through us so powerfully. If we don’t attempt to do it in our own power, then He will do it through us, to the glory of His Father in heaven.

The Bible says, “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” (John 3:17). If God had sent His beloved Son to condemn the world then no one could be saved. On the other hand, Jesus Christ does judge the world leaving them room for repentance. Let’s be clear that Christ loves the entire world desiring to save everyone from every race, nationality, and religious upbringing. He will judge but not condemn and neither should we. His mission is to save the entire world by showing them the Way, the only Way to the Father. To show them the only Way to a new bountiful life in Christ. Although the world is in the deepest chasm of darkness, Christ still wants to work through us showing people the Way, the only Way to eternal life. Now here is the power that will enlighten the heart even in the deadest sinner. Christ died for us on the Cross to pay the penalty for our sins, then on the third day He arose from the grave and is now seated in heaven at the right hand of the Father. If we die with Him, by dying to self, then we will live with Christ in the newness of life. The simple Gospel will show us the Way, but it takes faith to receive it.

Prepare Now for the Coming Persecution

If you believe that God will allow you to escape the coming persecution, then why did Jesus Christ bother telling us how we should prepare? So, contrary to what many think, we still need to prepare, because it can come unexpectedly with little warning. It will be so quick that most will be caught off guard. If we are not prepared by utilizing the clear instructions from His Word then it will be a most grievous occasion, sending most into full panic mode, horrifying fear and lasting depression. So, let’s look at the anointed words of Christ in the Bible and hide them deep within our hearts. Instructions to be used when the time comes. The current direction of this country and the world makes persecution very probable against the true believers in Christ. Or the faithful remnant, who hold to the exclusiveness of Christianity, the belief in the transformation in Christ, and commitment to sharing the Gospel to all people in every nation. The religious type beast or the false prophet will require that everyone worship the one in power and adhere to the doctrines of the established church. Failure to do so will result in immediate persecution of all true believers in Christ. I just wrote last week about the Catholic Pope and the Islamic faith signing a document to form a new world order of peace among all world religions, claiming that God is the same in each religion.

The extent of this persecution will be beyond what most of us can imagine. Especially this will be true when we realize that our own brother, either Christian or biological, will betray us to the authorities to the point of actually having us put to death (See Matthew 10:21). You might ask how can this happen? How could they be so brainwashed that they believe that we are the problem, that our interpretation of Scripture is false, and that we are wrong to stand against a peace-loving world that accepts everyone? In their eyes, we are beyond horrible for not accepting that all religions worship the same god. That we need to be persecuted to death because we have rejected the homosexual, the transgender, and the women’s choice to have an abortion. Don’t we see this today in the liberal Christian community who are already attacking our beliefs? Perhaps what’s even more disheartening is that members of our own family will rebel against us for our beliefs. They simply will not understand why we can’t accept the contemporary way of looking at things. We will seem old fashion in our thinking, but what’s most alarming is that they too are willing to have their own parents and children put to death (See Matthew 10:21). Jesus Christ continues by saying that we will be hated by all men, because of our relationship with Him.

The Bible says, “And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved” (Matthew 10:22). Well, that is exactly why we are writing this article to help you to know how to endure to the end. Let’s be clear right now we can never stand firm in our own strength. Even with the principles that I share with you today, it will not help unless you allow Christ to do it, to work in and through you. We must remember that Christ is the one that is really being persecuted. The Apostle Paul understood this well. The Bible says, “For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ” (II Corinthians 1:5). As true believers in Christ whenever we suffer for the cause of Christ, by advancing His gospel, or doing the work of the ministry, or simply standing for the truth, then in reality, Christ is also suffering with us. He continues to suffer with His beloved Church. That’s good to remember, the next time we come against one of His beloved children. It’s important to understand this truth if we want to stand firm against the persecution. In so doing, then we will allow Christ to take charge, by leading us in both our behavior and conversation with our persecutors. We must believe that He is standing with us in the midst of our worst persecution. We must believe that Christ will not abandon us.

It is clear from Scripture that persecution will come against the faithful remnant from a false religion. They can even claim to be the true faith in Christ. The Bible says, “But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the counsels, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles” (Matthew 10:18). Although this Holy Scripture was applicable to the early Christians it is still applicable for today and especially for the end time persecution. As Church history proves, nearly every persecution was done at the hands of the church and other world religions, namely Islam. It’s absolutely essential that we know well what we believe in from our own study of the Holy Scriptures as we were led by the indwelling Spirit. We must allow God to write His Words upon our hearts especially in areas that will come under attack by the false or lukewarm church. They will attack the exclusiveness of Christianity (See John 14:6). They will attack the Biblical doctrine of our transformation in Christ (See II Corinthians 5:17). They will attack many of the commands of God, especially the holy matrimony between one man and one woman; and, the sanctity of life in the womb of the mother. They will attack our belief in the Great Commission to preach the gospel to the entire world even if their people follow a false religion (See Matthew 28:19-20).

So, how do we prepare for the persecution? The Bible says, “But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak” (Matthew 10:19). Wow! So, we don’t think through what we are going to say or how we are going to say it? Correct. There is a reason for that, but first let me reiterate that God’s Holy Word must be in our hearts. We must know what we believe and believe what we know. For the indwelling Spirit will pull upon that information along with new words spoken directly by Him. After forty years in the ministry from reading countless books and studying in-depth the Holy Scriptures while struggling with the original languages and the opinion of many learned men, I have concluded that without Christ opening my mind every day through the Holy Spirit then I know nothing, nor can I speak His truth. So, no matter how much we think we know, we must wait upon Christ to speak through us, as I do currently in my morning prayers, that I have posted online for the past three years. This will be absolutely essential as we face our persecutors.

We have noticed how most people react to confrontation or impending danger. It appears that the adrenaline level is increased exponentially as the danger approaches. Often times without thinking, hostile words and actions are called upon more as an automatic response to defend one’s character or one’s self from any kind of attack. As Christians, this should not be so, who believe that Jesus Christ is present with us. Especially so, if we are defending the Gospel or our Christian character. The Bible says, “For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you” (Matthew 10:20). So, let me encourage you to calm down and wait upon the Lord before you say one word back to your persecutors. Clear your mind of your automatic response. Trust Christ to give you the correct verbal response believing that He will speak through you. Dear children, Jesus Christ will speak through you when you are brought before your persecutors. There are many examples throughout Church history where Christians have brought their persecutors to tears of repentance because they could not withstand their words, words actually spoken by Christ through them. There is great power in His words. Amen

Two Major Religions Prepare for the New World Order

Although the New World Order has not started officially and appears to be on hold temporarily, because of the Trump Administration, it has not kept the two major religions in the world from pursuing this goal. You might ask how will this be accomplished? The simple answer is that it’s already being accomplished through the signing of the “Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together,” by the Pope of the Catholic Church, and Sheikh Ahmed al-Ahmed, a popular leader, of the Sunni Islamic faith. These two faiths account to over 3.7 billion followers worldwide. We will refer to this Document often in this article. It’s also important to understand that Jewish and other religious leaders were also present during the signing. If these other world religions accept this Document’s global plans and participate in its establishment, then it would account for a major part of the world’s population, truly making it a New World Order. The Document does not mince any words to its true meaning: “It is a document that invites all persons who have faith in God and faith in human fraternity to unite and work together so that it may serve as a guide for future generations to advance a culture of mutual respect in the awareness of the great divine grace that makes all human beings brothers and sisters.”

You might ask again, how could this possibly happen when Christianity and Islam seem so diametrically opposed. See my blog article or video entitled, “The Last Crusade – Islam or Christianity.” Actually, it’s quite simple if Islam refuses to discuss certain religious dogma from the Koran that teaches hate, violence and forced conversion. It’s also simple if the Document establishes an agreement that Islam and Christianity believe in the same God. Let’s let the document speak for itself, “We, who believe in God [that includes Islam and Christianity] and in the final meeting with Him and His judgment, on the basis of our religious and moral responsibility, and through this Document, call upon ourselves, upon the leaders of the world as well as the architects of international policy and world economy, to work strenuously to spread the culture of tolerance and of living together in peace.” So their point is if they both believe in the same God and consider themselves brothers and sisters then they should agree to live in peace with one another by establishing a culture of tolerance. Let’s be very clear, we as believers in Christ are not against world peace and true harmony among all her citizens, but we are very much against diminishing the exclusiveness of Christianity as the only Way to God the Father. “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6). We may be friends and neighbors with all other world religions, but we are not, in the true sense of the word, brothers and sisters. Nor do we have the same promise of an inheritance.

So, what are the dangers of this Document that has just been signed by the Catholic Church and supreme representative of the Islamic religion? The dangers are manifold so we will take one at a time and ask the question, “Is it really worth the promise of world peace.” The first danger is it legitimizes that God willed the formation of Islam as He did with the other world religions. The Document says, “The pluralism and the diversity of religions, color, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings.” Although God allowed “pluralism and the diversity of religion,” clearly, he did not sanction any other world religion to supplant the truth delivered to us by His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ from Heaven. Although throughout the Old Testament God allowed other religions to grow up and prosper alongside His people, His divine light always shined brightly upon His chosen people, never giving place for other world religions or divergence from the truth. This Document is a blatant lie to justify the formation of Islam for the purposes of world peace.

The second danger is it stops the sharing of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to other faiths, especially to Islam. This unholy Document says, “This divine wisdom is the source from which the right to freedom of belief and the freedom to be different derives. Therefore, the fact that people are forced to adhere to a certain religion or culture must be rejected, as too the imposition of a cultural way of life that others do not accept.” As thousands from Islam are finally seeing the light and coming to the truth, there is no record of any of them complaining that they were coerced or forced to accept the truth claims of Jesus Christ. In fact, many have given wonderful and blessed testimonies of their salvation experience. They have freely embraced the new cultural norms realized through their transformation in Christ. They have so felt the love of God that many of them have endured horrible persecutions from their Muslim families for their decision to follow Christ as their Savior. Although this Document might be pleasing to Islam, it violates the Great Commission delivered to us by the Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. We are required to offer the message of salvation to anyone who is willing to listen and that includes other world religions.

Lastly, the New World Order will imprison or execute those who disagree with this Document for world peace. The Document states that: “Terrorism is deplorable and threatens the security of people, be they in the East or the West, the North or the South, and disseminates panic, terror and pessimism, but this is not due to religion, even when terrorists instrumentalize it. It is due, rather, to an accumulation of incorrect interpretations of religious texts … All these must be regarded as international crimes that threaten security and world peace. Such terrorism must be condemned in all its forms and expressions.” At first glance, it appears that this is particularly good for the Christian community if the Islamic faith agrees to stop their terrorism and persecution against Christians worldwide. However, we must keep in mind that this is a two-edged sword that can cut in both directions. For example, as a Christian who takes God’s Word seriously and attempts to lead anyone to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ could be seen as a terrorist and treated accordingly. Also, any attempt to prove from Holy Scripture that God only instituted one Way to heaven through His beloved Son, which we interpret as the exclusiveness of Christianity, thus nullifying the legitimacy of all the other world religions, would mark us as haters of the peace and subject to persecution by those in power.

In conclusion, “people say peace, peace; when there is no peace” (See Jeremiah 6:14). Although in the last days the greater part of the population will give the appearance of peace as each man worships in his own religion unthreatened by others, there will be no peace if he has not established peace with God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Furthermore, this original Document signed goes much further than the religious doctrines of a mutual Godhead and the tolerance for every other world religion. It enters into every area of society and world government that includes the management of resources, taking care of the poor, family education, women’s rights, stopping abortion, protecting the elderly and addressing the issues of global warming to name a few. Sounds like they soon will have their religious type beast. They simply need a political leader to rise to the occasion that will stand militarily against the entire world enforcing the tenets of this Document that establishes world peace. Dear friends, I pray that this article that will open your eyes to the power of Antichrist at work in the world to diminish the exclusiveness of Christianity, to stop the proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to prepare the entire world to be ruled by the coming Beast of Revelation. Please invite your friends and family to read this important article or watch the coming video produced for the Christian community living in the Last Days. Stand Firm.

The Power of No in a World Ravaged by Sin

We look out upon a world that has gone mad committing every manner of sin. Don’t think for a moment that the ravages of sin are not affecting the believer in Christ. Sin has grown so powerful through the instigation of Satan that it permeates every area of society from the highest to the lowest amongst us. From the cradle to the grave it’s great power has cast most into a life of bondage. Many who claim to know Christ are stuck in the old sin nature. It has driven millions into counseling and drug addiction or to a life of unchecked lawlessness. The horrific pain and suffering caused by sin are both shocking and devastating. Our courts and prisons are bursting at the seams while the world cries out, “What is sin?” Tragically this increasing sin also affects the earth bringing forth one calamity after another. As diseases and epidemics sweep the planet many of them have a direct correlation with sin. It’s so sad that everything is being blamed for the problems of humanity and the destruction of our planet, but no one is blaming sin.

So, in a world ravaged by sin, how can God’s beloved children escape the power of sin and its consequences? A simplistic answer is to say no to sin and to withdraw from those who commit sin, but we will need to be much more detailed in our answer. We will begin our explanation with the negative by saying that the world as a whole or fallen humanity has a very difficult time saying no to sin. What’s so alarming is many believers claim they have no power in themselves to stop the habit of sinning. They try every conceivable method from godless meditation to drugs and counseling with no great success. Many in desperation finally give up and become servants to their sin or sinful habits. This is also proved by the number of their counselors that teach them non-ending techniques to supposedly help them to overcome their many emotional and psychological problems caused by the consequences of their sin or the sin committed to them by others. As a rule, the concept of sin is never discussed among the world’s counselors. On the other hand, only it’s devastating consequences are discussed at length. They always attempt to deal with the effect and not the cause.

This inability to say no to sin is also proved by no longer recognizing sin as a trespass against a Holy God. For the most part, it’s simply recognized as a personal choice. They typically see it as an acceptable routine or social norm that others must accept. They gleefully say, “Why must I say no to something that I don’t see as being wrong in the first place.” That is the tremendous power that Satan has wielded in the last days. He has set about to convince fallen humanity that it’s not sin, nor is it a trespass against a Holy God. The lukewarm church teaches that God winks at their sin and is always ready to forgive with no accountability. To fulfill his satanic agenda he also convinces fallen humanity to destroy the Ten Commandments by removing them from public buildings and the schoolhouse. Then he attacks prayer in school and outlaws bible study in the schoolhouse or in public buildings. Moreover, if he can convince those in leadership to legalize the trespass then in the minds of fallen humanity it must be okay even if it produces dire consequences.

Therefore, the first step in learning how to say no to sin is to learn that the sin, that’s no longer called sin, is a trespass against a Holy God. The Holy Bible has recorded many of these trespasses that fallen humanity has either completely ignored, explained away, or was convinced by the lukewarm Church that it’s not really necessary to keep the commandments of Christ. Yet, it’s these beautiful commands that help the believer to experience the fullness of their new life in Christ. It helps the new believer in Christ to stay away from those things that will pull them down or keep them in bondage to the old life. For example, the law stipulates that we should bring no harm to our bodies (see I Corinthians 3:16-17). So, if certain foods, drinks, drugs, or even cigarettes have been proven to be harmful to our bodies then why do we ignore the commands of God and destroy our bodies? Why do we subject ourselves to the tragic consequences of our sin? Obesity, alcoholism, and lung cancer to name a few is ravaging fallen humanity because they sin against God. So many in our day who claim to know Christ needlessly suffer because they fail to obey the beautiful commands of God, which is sin.

We need to learn how to say no to all sin which is a trespass against God. The second essential step is to make sure that we have completely surrendered our life to Jesus Christ. The Bible speaks of the old man that is crucified with Christ and if we truly allow the old sin nature to die then it no longer has power over us. We have been set free from the power of sin. Praise God! Through faith we believe that God raised Him from the grave. Through faith we also believe that we have been raised with Him to become a new creation, who now has power over sin. (See II Corinthians 5:17; and, Romans 6:6-7). Quite simply we can say no to sin. We can confidently say if the old man died with Christ then it no longer has power over the new man in Christ. While the world struggles with putting off their old sin habits with great agony and frustration, the putting off of the old man has been made easy through faith and dependence upon God through the indwelling Spirit that gives us both courage and peace.

A sure test of our faith: will you be willing to give up every sin and every habit when you discover that it is a trespass against God? This knowledge of God’s Will comes through the personal study of God’s Word, in the Bible. Our personal study of His Word will be brought to life by the indwelling Spirit giving us both a warming and conviction in our heart as we discover each command or the knowledge of His Will. As this happens the indwelling Spirit writes God’s Will and His beautiful commands on our hearts. Once God brings His conviction to our hearts then He also gives us the sufficient grace through faith to obey His Will and His commands. We have the power to say no to the sin! The Bible says, “No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him” (I John 3:6). How glorious it is to be freed from the power of sin. Dear children, as we draw closer to the end every day, it is essential that we say no to sin and say yes to our new life in Christ. Amen

Proof That The Great Tribulation Has Begun

No, I don’t think the world is going to end during the coming Super Wolf Blood Moon on Sunday, January 20, 2019. However, I do believe that we are entering a time of Jacob’s Trouble or the Great Tribulation. The Day of God’s wrath being poured out on all ungodliness has begun. No, we cannot stop it, but we can repent while we still have the opportunity and that window of opportunity is closing rapidly. More about that later. Dear children, do not let anyone distract you or fool you into believing that all of the world’s problems affecting humanity is simply caused by evil nations bent on our destruction, natural disasters, changing weather patterns or Global Warming. No, I will prove to you that it is caused by the hand of God pouring out His wrath on all ungodliness. His wrath is allowing mankind to sink deeper and deeper into the consequences of his own sins from destroying the planet and destroying the lives of others. This article will prove to be your final warning. I have been writing blog articles and books for the past twenty years to help God’s children stand firm during the coming Great Tribulation, but now it’s here. I pray that you will take this article to heart not only for yourself but for all of your close relations.

Let’s start by looking at a comparative analysis between the seven trumpets and seven bowls of God’s wrath. The first thing we will notice is the trumpets are partial and progressive in nature, whereas the bowls of God’s wrath is final and complete. So, for the sake of this article we will look at the seven trumpets given to the seven angels that sounds the official introduction to the Great Tribulation in the last days, whereas the letter to the seven churches and the seven seals mark the beginning of the Church age with the progressive and repeating events that stretch from the resurrection of Jesus Christ to the beginning of the Great Tribulation or the Day of the Lord. Any student of history will admit that we have had the Gospel of Jesus Christ spread throughout the entire known world conquering and to conquer as seen in the first Seal. We have all witnessed the great many wars as peace was taken from the world as seen in the second Seal. We have all witnessed the poverty in the world often caused by famines and the result of wars as seen in the third Seal. The fourth seal adds the horror of religious war and the many different persecutions. The fifth seal shows those blessed saints who were slain for the Word of God. As each seal is opened it shows the unfolding of history since the writing of this book of Revelation (See Revelation 6:1-11).

When he opened the sixth seal then the door of the Great Tribulation was opened, and the wrath of God is being poured out upon all ungodliness. What’s very important with the Revelation is that we do not attempt to set exact dates. We can only say for certain that the door has been opened with the opening of the six seals that have taken us through most of Church history and now we have fully entered into the last days of the Great Tribulation with the continued sealing of all God’s beloved children that also include a faithful remnant of the Jews and those coming out of the Great Tribulation (See Revelation 6:12-7:17). This is a momentous event, before the sounding of the first trumpet. Also, it’s intriguing that the saints who are alive during the Great Tribulation can see that their many prayers to heaven have special significance and great power as they are hurled back to earth accomplishing God’s will as seen in the seventh seal (See Revelation 8:1-5). Let’s be clear right now that you can believe whatever you want about the rapture of the Church, but you will not be raptured until the whole Bride has been made ready. God will not rapture a lukewarm Christianity. As we pass through the fires of Tribulation, we will be made ready in Christ Jesus. A weak faith will not stand firm and resist the many temptations that lie ahead.

The sounding of the trumpet has always signified the beginning of a great event and it will be no different in the sounding of the first trumpet in the Book of Revelation. With the sounding of each trumpet we see what is happening behind the scenes (or in heaven) even with bizarre symbolism we can see with Spiritual eyes it’s catastrophic effect upon the earth. In the first trumpet, we witness a global warming causing huge forest fires globally with all the green grass being burnt up. In the second trumpet, we witness the warming of the great seas along with increasing pollution it causes the death to a large portion of sea creatures and the damage to a great many ships. With the sounding of the third trumpet, the rivers, lakes, and even drinking water is affected by pollution causing many deaths among the world’s population. With the sounding of the fourth trumpet, we witness air pollution that greatly lessens the visibility of the sun, the moon, and the stars. This air pollution has already caused much sickness and a great many deaths worldwide. Nearly everyone has already seen these effects upon on our home, planet earth. Fallen humanity is clearly reaping what they have sown as God allows them to sink deeper into the consequences of their sins against the planet (See Revelation 8:6 – 9:21). In comparison, by the time we get to the bowls of God’s Wrath every living creature (or soul) in the sea will die. Every river and fountain of water for drinking on the planet will be polluted. As temperatures rise even the sun gets so hot that it scorches mankind. See Revelation Chapter 16 for a further description of the Bowls of God’s Wrath.

Keep in mind as we approach these next two Trumpets, they alert the world of two great evils that have already plagued mankind and will continue to do so until the end. Every time mankind believes that he has a handle on it they once again raise their ugly fearsome head to torment fallen humanity. Although detailed in striking apocalyptic symbolism they paint a grim picture of what fallen humanity will experience for their denial of the Lord Jesus Christ as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The fifth trumpet also considered as the first woe strikes at the very heart and mind of fallen humanity. In their refusal to accept their new life in Christ they have gathered together their own counselors to solve their many psychological and emotional problems. In so doing they have become addicted to psychotropic drugs to solve their many problems which never bring a cure but continued anguish driving many to attempt suicide to escape their torment. The sixth trumpet brings forth a horde from the Middle East bent on the destruction of anyone who does not accept their godless religion. We have seen this since its conception but never with such fervor for world domination. Their goal is to have one worldwide religion of Islam and will ultimately kill millions in the process. Again, we see God letting go, allowing mankind to sink deeper into the consequences of his sins for rejecting the one true God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who arose victoriously from the grave.

So, with the remaining trumpet to be sounded and the revealing of the man of lawlessness or the beast the Great Tribulation will bring forth its greatest horrors. Truly this testing will separate the true sheep from the goats. It will bring forth a great sword separating God’s beloved children from those who made a simple profession of faith and then drifted back into the world to participate in their many sins. If you have not yet fully committed your whole life to Christ, then let me encourage you to hear that inward voice and respond before it’s too late. It’s not going to get any easier because Satan knows that his time is limited and is already sending forth a host of demons to tempt mankind into every diabolical form of wickedness, perversion and grossest immorality. The killing of unborn children, allowing children to choose their gender, and practicing the magical arts barely scratches the surface of things to come. We must stand firm by girding up the loins of our mind allowing every thought to become captive to the Lord Jesus Christ. We must allow the indwelling Spirit to write the law of liberty on our hearts withdrawing from every impure thing that would drag us down to the pit. As I stated at the beginning of the article, we must draw close to the Lord Jesus Christ while we still can, keeping in step with the indwelling Spirit. Stand Firm dear children.
