A Blessing to Flee Bondage Now

In the Last Days following the Shepherd of our souls has become increasingly difficult for most people who call upon the Name of Jesus Christ. The Good Shepherd has been leading His children, for some time now, to come out from the world and be separate (Revelation 18:4-5). Unbeknown to most, the closer we get to the End the more difficult it has become. Regrettably, this difficulty has not only left His people in bondage to the world, but it has also caused them to miss the greatest blessings beyond imagination. First, we will examine the difficulty of coming out from the world and the extent of the bondage that will ultimately lead to destruction. Then, secondly, we will discuss the great blessings of taking the first steps in resisting the world and coming out of bondage. The further you come out of the world, the more you will experience blessings beyond imagination as you follow only the Good Shepherd of your soul, Jesus Christ. Dear children, I pray that you will join me on this journey that will open your eyes to a bondage you never knew existed until you are set free. Be free at last to enjoy blessings beyond measure!

To examine the difficulties, we must take a trip to the past when the world was completely different. I would like to take you back to the time before Television, the personal computer, the internet, and the cellphone ever existed. This was a different world where family and the evening meal around the same dinner table had a whole different meaning. Personal opinions about life and our shared struggles were typically only shared and received among the family unit or select friends that we had developed over time by having a real face-to-face relationship. Life was simpler. Even among our peers of teachers, preachers, professors, and employers, there was a common acceptance of family and religious values that always took precedence over varied opinions. But now we live in a different age, an Information Age, where information is extremely varied and coming at us at the speed of light utilizing the latest technologies of the cellphone, internet, social media, 24-hour news, and artificial intelligence that have been instrumental in spreading this information. Tragically, family values no longer take precedence. Religious values no longer take precedence. It’s as though the whole world is being pulled in multiple directions at the same time causing great confusion, increasing psychological problems, and even suicide.

So, how does this massive amount of information cause such horridness bondage? We need to take another trip further back in time, this time to the First Century when the simple Gospel was presented to the fallen world. The world of the First Century was not much different than today. Satan had been busy for many years sowing confusion among the world’s population by giving them multiple gods, multiple religions, and even the beginning of science to chart a new path on creationism and expert opinions for all of life. The simple Gospel presented by the early Apostles faced an uphill battle with all the various opinions sowing unbelievable confusion among the masses. God’s Word to the masses of humanity was the same then as it is today. The message was to come out from among them, for it is the only way to help fallen humanity to accept only the clear teachings of the Gospel. The message of the Gospel was not the insertion of another god to be put on the same level as the rest. The Gospel proclaimed that there was only one God and only one truth essentially invalidating all the other gods and truths of the Roman Empire and the known world. Consequently, this made those proclaiming this new truth an enemy of the State, which led to the most horrific persecution against God’s children who had been called to come out from among them and be separate.

The Gospel cannot be integrated with the many lies of the devil taught by fallen humanity, then and now. The moment you integrate God’s truth with the massive information coming from the powers of darkness, then you have lost the effectiveness of the Gospel to truly transform lives. This integration currently accepted by humanity has created the lukewarm church (Revelation 3:14-22). Yes, Satan is doing the same thing today as he did two thousand years ago to sow confusion and controversy in the world. But now he’s got much more help with all the technology especially artificial intelligence (AI) that will end up being the Image of the Beast (Revelation 13:15). Humanity will become so addicted to this continuous flow of information that they will believe that they simply cannot live without it helping them to organize their lives and become all they envision themselves to be. Here’s the problem, a day is coming quickly that AI will know who you are and if you are depending on its information flow to keep you in bondage; simply put, if you are not plugged in you could be targeted for elimination. Yes, modern-day believers will also face persecution, but I am afraid it will be much more limited because most believers will remain happily in bondage to the Image of the Beast (AI) that will lead the entire world to worship the Antichrist. Step by step this bondage will grow more intense by leading all of humanity to believe that they can change the world by using their own power to elect the right person and passing the right laws, which is only an allusion to keep you in bondage to Satan and the powers of darkness.

Yes, it will be difficult to give up all those apps on your cellphone that connect you to the fallen world. However, after the multitude of voices from the world begin to fade away you will be in store for the greatest blessings of your life. You will discover quickly that God embraces our silence and solitude especially when we are eager to listen to Him alone. As I attempted to explain in a previous article it is amazing what God can do to an uncluttered and unconfused mind that’s no longer in bondage to Satan leading you from pillar to post. The longer we are truly out of the world, it’s absolutely amazing the clarity of God’s Word that takes precedence in our life. As priorities begin to shift we see the importance of building only face-to-face relationships that go well beyond the rehearsed greetings known well by the fallen world. The fallen world, in captivity to Satan, finds it extremely difficult to build in-depth relationships where their hidden faults might be exposed. Unfortunately, we live in a new world where people have become accustomed to hiding behind fake photos and hiding deep-seated problems on social media and this behavior has followed them into the real world. There is no wonder that the many different avatars have become so popular, choosing the one that best suits their fantasy.

When we truly come out of captivity and build strong relationships with other believers, we begin to see the wonder of being transformed in Christ that desires to build a new community of self-giving, agape love. As pride gives way to humility, we begin to see that we have no power to change the world. We realize that only God can change the world, not through the ballot box or passing new laws, but through helping people see the power of the Gospel to change hearts and minds. We realize that we can’t, but God can change the world one person at a time. This was the belief of the early Church that came out from among them, faced persecution, and challenged the world. Yes, it will be difficult to come out from among them, but the rewards are great. Putting off the old sin nature and putting on Christ, step by step, through transformation will allow you to overcome every so-called emotional and psychological problem. The old life will truly pass away, behold all things become new (II Corinthians 5:17). Let us pray that God’s will be done on earth as it is in heaven by rejecting the political path and embracing only God’s path of changing humanity one person at a time through the power of the Gospel. To witness that will be the greatest blessing that you can possibly imagine. Come out from among them now, my dear children, and witness the power of God.

Come Out From Among Them

This will be the most difficult thing to do for most, who claim to be Christians, but once accomplished, it will be the most rewarding, with the greatest blessings. The world has been on a downward spiral since the last Great War. I have preached about it and taught about it for the past forty-five years. It was not caused by just one person, one political party, or one political leader. It started when people felt they no longer needed God to solve their mounting problems. They turned to science, psychology, the internet, and finally to Artificial Intelligence (or the Image of the Beast) to solve all their problems apart from an omniscient (all-knowing) God. As the world turned away from God they began to slip deeper and deeper into all manner of depravity. Changing political leaders, passing new laws, and even displaying the Ten Commandments in every classroom will not stop this descent. At this point, there is only one way to stop the descent, we must come out from among them as stated in the Bible, “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities” (Revelation 18:4-5).

So how do we accomplish this goal of coming out from among them? This will be a monumental task for most because we have developed habits that will be very difficult to break or stop. Although it’s difficult, it will not be impossible. Old habits need to be exchanged for new habits. The entire New Testament message dealt with this issue extensively by teaching new believers to put off the old life and to put on the new life in Christ, in essence, to exchange bad habits for good, holy, and righteous habits, in Christ. Satan’s control over the masses in the last days is to give humanity bad habits that will fill up all their time, every moment of every day. He begins by leading humanity to trust in his works rather than trusting in God alone for all of life. This has been a slow, but deliberate process by Satan, over the past seventy years, to move all of humanity to trust in his works to solve all their problems and to give them the so-called good life. Step by step they were led to trust in psychology to fix all the newly discovered mental illnesses through secular counseling, therapy, and medications. This in itself would drive more and more of the population to reject classic Christianity by trusting in the fallen world to solve their problems, in essence having one foot in the world and one foot in the Kingdom producing lukewarm Christianity.

Satan’s next step was to cause humanity to reject God as the Creator of their unique gender of being either male or female. This opened the floodgates of every known perversion. This was not the result of electing the wrong politicians or passing the wrong laws; it was the result of no longer trusting God to know what’s best for humanity by accepting our created gender at birth. This has had a domino effect by leading humanity to accept everything science has taught about the universe and our evolution from a tadpole instead of believing that we were uniquely created in the image of God. Of course, all of this was only the beginning of our downfall. Nothing will stop the descent except coming completely out from among them. As long as we follow lukewarm Christians in their descent then we will all face Armageddon together. Now, Pandora’s box has been opened by graduating humanity from the old family-centered black-and-white television shows to an array of online movies preaching Satan’s gospel to the masses, everything from the acceptance of all the known perversions to trusting in the fallen world to solve all of their problems. Now, humanity is facing its greatest threat by dividing all of humanity into warring factions based on what they believe is the truth.

Social media is paving the way for the Image of the Beast. This is Satan’s final deception to force all of humanity to worship the beast. Just like black and white Television, social media started as something for just family and friends to share their stories, family photos, and their unique adventures or family vacations. Well, it didn’t take too long for it to degenerate into something far more dangerous. It became a sounding board for every conceivable problem and so-called solution based on an array of different opinions. Many opinions were based on so-called scientific, psychological, political, and even Biblical facts often taken out of context. Everyone has a soap box, a following, and a different opinion leading humanity to the precipice of a civil war urged on by their favorite politician or religious leader. Humanity is exactly where Satan wants you to be ready to accept only the truth given to them by the image of the beast (Artificial Intelligence). Although in the beginning AI will be used to help separate the masses by force-feeding everyone with what they seemingly want through intelligent algorithms, it will eventually go well beyond what people want and think to give people only what Satan requires them to think and believe. The Bible says, “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed” (Revelation 13:15).

So, how do we come out from among them? The old habits that must be broken run deep into nearly every human on planet Earth. Humanity has become so accustomed to seeking advice from so-called professionals on social media and through internet searches, whereas most rarely trust in God alone to address their problems through the indwelling Spirit and His anointed Words in the Bible. Furthermore, for nearly seventy years now humanity has grown accustomed to trusting in their psychological counselor, their therapist, and drugs without even considering seeking God’s intervention through His anointed Biblical counselors and the study of the Bible to discover all the age-old methods that deal with every emotional and psychological problem. As a Biblical counselor for many years, I know and understand that this is a difficult step in coming out of the world and trusting in God alone, but it is essential to be finally set free from the drug addiction and the endless counseling that gives no real lasting help. As long as we still have one foot in the world trusting them to solve all our problems, then we will never be set free to experience this new life in Christ. We must come out from among them.

Secondly, to come out from the world, we must break free from the tether that’s constantly filling our minds with useless, meaningless, and contradictory information. Remember, the adage TMI (too much information). Satan’s goal is not only to fill our minds with useless information but to consume all of our precious time. Satan is already gauging your interest by giving you what they believe you want by tracking everything you do and everything you say on social media and the internet. Humanity has become addicted to this so-called useful information, becoming so entranced with it, that they feel compelled to share it with everyone. This often-useless information formulates their most unconventional opinions creating erratic behavior and frightful divisions. They become so intoxicated with receiving such information it’s commonplace to carry their cell phones (or laptops) everywhere they go as a ready resource for every problem by searching the internet, and scrolling social media to follow the latest opinions concerning things happening in the world or checking their News App to discover the latest opinions from the so-called experts. I could tell you to delete all of your Social Media accounts and your News Media Apps or I could tell you that you just need to be more discerning of all the information coming at you, but I would rather give you a summary statement about how to come out from among them. My summary statement says, “Stop listening to the world and start listening to God.”

When we stop listening to the world, then our perspective about everything will change. Our greatest desire will be to sit constantly at the feet of Jesus and only hear what He has to say about everything. When we sit awhile at the feet of Jesus, we will no longer have a desire to listen to all the opinions and comments from the so-called experts in the world. In time, we won’t even want to hear our own vain imaginations. We just want to hear the voice of God. It’s absolutely amazing when we empty our minds of all the foolishness and the programming in the world. In time our minds are able to focus on very old and beautiful memories that come back with such clarity. In Time, our minds are able to focus on the many beautiful truths in the Bible and how God has walked with us throughout the years, allowing us to rejoice in His many little miracles. Oh, what glory it is to be free from all the programming in the world that’s preparing our minds to be controlled by the Antichrist, his false prophet, and the Image of the Beast (Artificial Intelligence). Free at last! Finally, I pray that you heed the warning. If you refuse to come out from among them, then you will, step by step, be led into all manner of sins and suffer the consequences by receiving His plagues destined for the ungodly (Revelation 18:4-5). Please come out of the world before it’s too late. The longer you stay in the world, the more difficult it will become as Satan tightens his control on the masses.

Please Join Me In Prayer

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for being our true teacher by giving us life-changing lessons to make us who we are today. We have learned what other great scholars have said about you and your wonderful teachings, over the course of many years. We have even looked at the original languages of the Bible and studied hard to understand its true meaning. We have also spent many years practicing our public speaking and the fine art of listening for becoming an effective counselor. However, all these, pale in comparison to sitting in the schoolroom of the indwelling Spirit allowing You to teach us every moment of every day. Therein, is our true boldness to speak clearly and effectively to others in your Name. We thank you, Lord, that this teaching through the indwelling Spirit is available to all your beloved children if they would only take time to listen, to really listen. We pray that your children would take the time from their busy schedules to spend the daily hours necessary in prayer and meditation to learn how to listen to you in the schoolhouse of prayer. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus” (Acts 4:13).

Brown Shirts and Lukewarm Christianity

Historically speaking both terms, brown shirts and lukewarm Christianity, have been used to describe a very dark period in the past with an astonishing relevance for today. The last Church to be described in the Book of Revelation had a very unique problem. They were neither hot nor cold, so Jesus Christ described them as being lukewarm. These end-time Christians held tightly to their professed religious doctrines but at the same time embraced many of the teachings from the world, which took precedence. These worldly beliefs could easily sway their behavior towards immorality willing to strike out violently at anyone who would disagree. In their hearts, they believed that they were Christians following the chosen path but in their actions they believed that they were on a higher path toward bringing renewal to a world or country that had lost its way. The match that lit the fire was believing that they were the only ones who possessed the truth, believing that everyone else must be false prophets or working for the enemy. This attitude of always being correct, even with known conspiracy theories, not only divides a nation, but it sends a very sharp blade right down the very heart of Christianity.

Now, who are these brown shirts? We need to take a trip back in time when a European nation was in deep trouble financially with many teetering on the edge of absolute poverty. Many fingers were being pointed at one another, but no one had a viable solution. One man did arise proclaiming a solution but was quickly removed and eventually sent to prison where he wrote Mein Kampf pointing his finger not only against the establishment but also the Jews. Yes, Germany was considered a Christian nation desperately looking for some great leader to make them a great nation again. They became a nation easily swayed to allow hate to enter their hearts for anyone who would stand in the way of Germany’s success. Lukewarm Christians along with others would dawn their brown shirts and violently strike back at all those who stood in the way of Germany’s restoration to glory. Yes, Adolf Hitler arose leading an entire nation to strike back at all those who stood in his way of making Germany great again and making all true Germans proud of their bloodline as a chosen race. Yes, with a so-called just cause even moral Christians can be swayed to fight back making them lukewarm in the sight of a loving and merciful God. Jesus said, “So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth” (Revelation 3:16).

Let us pray that we are not on the same path as Germany was under Hitler. As a Nation, many believe that we have lost our greatness and are seeking a leader who will make our nation great again. But at what cost? If we blindly follow a self-righteous and prideful man, then we will produce our own brown shirts to fight against the establishment and anyone else who stands in the way of becoming great again. In many ways, it has already started by allowing hate to reign in our hearts against the other side, the immigrant, the foreigner, and anyone else who disagrees with us. Dear children, we must not become the brown shirts for Trump or any other leader. Jesus Christ is our only true leader, and He has already given us a unique path to walk. Christ’s path is to come out from among them, all of them, on both sides (Revelation 18:4-5). The path of Christ is totally different than anything in the world. It is a heavenly path that brings truth and righteousness to all sides. When we truly come out from among then we will see clearly the path of righteousness, which is to do God’s will on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:9-10). Let that sink in. When we follow God’s will alone we will see heaven opened up to brand new possibilities. We will easily identify lukewarm Christianity from classic Christianity taught by Jesus Christ.

Lukewarm Christianity says they have the power in themselves to overthrow Satan, establish God’s dominion here on earth, and more importantly utilize the political establishment or brute force to accomplish their goals. Their lack of success in overthrowing Satan is proved by how quickly the world is sinking deeper and deeper into the pit of horrific unrighteousness. Furthermore, lukewarm Christians have been blinded by Satan to overlook or even accept the bad behavior of their own leaders in both the political and religious realms. On the other hand, classic Christianity utilizes God’s methods of leading people to Christ and helping them to become transformed in Christ one person at a time. Christ’s method is not through brute force and political action but through God calling them individually into His Kingdom of righteousness. Instead of wearing brown shirts to wreak havoc on our neighbors, we have the gift of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone. Only the Gospel has the power unto salvation (Romans 1:16). Instead of pride and arrogance we walk in humility considering others better than ourselves (Philippians 2:3; Ephesians 4:2). Instead of outrageous greed seeking to build an empire here on earth we lay up our treasures in heaven (Matthew 6:19-21). Instead of hating others who disagree we have learned how to love even our enemies (Matthew 5:43-48). To keep one foot in the world and one foot in the kingdom will guarantee your place in lukewarm Christianity and a brown shirt especially fitted for you to follow the prideful and self-righteous Antichrist. God forbid.

Right now, the world is primed for the Antichrist and his brown shirts to rule the world. As I am writing this article even more countries, especially in Europe, have chosen the path of radical right to rule their people, which will play into the hands of the coming Antichrist. Donald Trump has sown seeds of hate into the hearts of his faithful followers in nearly every speech causing many to rise up against the establishment and anyone else that disagrees with his mandate. Donald Trump follows some of the same demeaning rhetoric as his predecessor Adolf Hitler against the immigrants, the legal system, and anyone else who disagrees with him. Donald Trump has not been open about his ancestry roots from Germany by his grandfather who was a German immigrant. If he becomes a dictator on day one of his presidency, as promised, then the resurrection of the brown shirts from the ranks of lukewarm Christianity could cause the greatest persecution against God’s anointed children since the First Century. Dear children, we must come out from among them now, bringing as many professed believers as possible. There is nothing we can do to stop the Antichrist. The one thing we can do is to prepare for the days ahead by proclaiming the truth to our family, friends, and everyone else we encounter. When the Antichrist takes his seat in the most powerful nation in the world, then the fulfillment of prophecy and the inevitable will happen. The only question we need to ask ourselves is: “Will you be persecuted, or will you be the persecutor? I pray that you will follow classic Christianity taught by Jesus and not lukewarm Christianity taught by self-righteous man.

Please Join Me in Prayer

Good morning Heavenly Father. We have seen the great falling away even among our own families. Our hearts are deeply grieved that they will not recognize their own falling away because they have followed the path of lukewarm Christianity. They will not recognize or admit that they have one foot in the world following its teachings and one foot in the Kingdom attempting to follow your teachings exclusively. We pray that they will recognize that this great falling away opens the door to the Antichrist to lead your children even further away from the truth. We pray that their eyes will be open to the great deception of believing that they can overthrow Satan and build the kingdom, making their world great again, through the political process. We pray that you show them your righteous path of building the Kingdom one person at a time by casting off the hate for the other side, taught by the political elite, and only walking in true love for even their enemies. Oh Lord, teach them again the power of transformation to truly change lives beyond the ineffectiveness of manmade laws. We pray this is the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” (II Thessalonians 2:3).

Living With A Thousand Voices

If we count up the number of different voices that we hear from the world in the course of a day and the voices that we hear in our own minds from memories to vain imaginations and from trying to figure things out to what we are going to say next, a thousand voices may not seem that far-fetched. The problem with attempting to assimilate this many voices it can create a great deal of confusion leading to anxiety, stress, and even depression. Silence and solitude for Christians have become a thing of the past, long forgotten in the dusty annals of church doctrine. Before we look at silence and solitude, let’s examine some of these different voices that come at us at the speed of light, each of them begging for our undivided attention and the acceptance of it as the undeniable truth. I don’t need to tell you where all these voices come from in the world. You already listen to these many voices on social media platforms, YouTube, television, radio, podcasts, the internet, newspapers, books, magazines, apps on your cellphone, political rallies, and people you encounter along the way. Yes, we all listen to these voices proclaiming to have the only truth.

I could tell you to keep listening and have greater discernment or I could give you a better way, stop listening. If we stop listening to the world, then our minds will come to the rescue. As already mentioned the mind can easily fill in the gap. It can easily bring back memories of things that you have heard, not only recently, but many years ago. Your mind is an expert at imagining the wildest tales better than any TV show. It can imagine you being rich, educated, and very powerful. These vain imaginations can occupy your mind for many hours which go way beyond a simple daydream. So, we need to do more than just stop listening to the world, we must learn how to listen to Jesus Christ alone through the Holy Spirit (Revelation 2:7,11,17, 29; 3:6,13,22). When we listen to Jesus Christ alone through the Holy Spirit, then it will open a whole new vista to see everything in the light of His glory. As the world grows ever more divided on what they perceive to be the truth, then it’s even more prudent to discover how God sees it. Instead of choosing sides expressed by fallen humanity, we look beyond the mundane and the trivial to garner a higher vantage point, to see things from an eternal perspective. What does God see concerning the perceived truth of fallen humanity expressed in their outrageous pride? It may shock you!

Before we attempt to see things from an eternal perspective, we need to contemplate what is causing so many problems in every individual on planet Earth. As there are many different voices in the world, we have discovered that there are also many different voices and urges in most people caused by their desires of the flesh or their old sin nature. Instead of rebuking these voices and casting them out immediately, they tend to dwell on them until they end up acting on these bad choices. They end up gratifying the desires of the flesh and not walking in the Spirit (Galatians 5:16-17). This can be seen clearly in today’s world where hatefulness, arrogance, and pride reign. The Spirit and the flesh are truly opposed to one another causing many to be led into all manner of evil, doing things that they would not normally do. We need to fight against these voices or urges of the old sin nature by walking in the Spirit. We pray that you will discover the absolute joy and peace that comes from walking every day in the Spirit. Now that you are successfully walking in the Spirit, then you can seek to see things from God’s perspective that will truly shock you.

Well, we have stopped listening to the world and we have cast out the evil thoughts in our mind allowing us to keep in step with the Spirit now we are ready for the last step, seeing things from God’s perspective. Over the years I have written thousands of blog articles and sermons along with countless videos to unlock the prophetic timeline so that God’s children would grow closer to God and further away from the fallen world. Understanding the prophetic timeline and walking in the Spirit are the two things absolutely necessary to see things from God’s perspective, which will shock most believers and all of fallen humanity.  I have painstakingly detailed the prophetic timeline in my new book, “Annals of Prophetic Writings,” but for the sake of this short article, I will summarize it here. The Revelation is not static but dynamic revealing everything happening in the last days from the first Century until the present day. We are in the last period of the lukewarm church (Revelation 3:14-22), when the Antichrist system has pridefully arisen in every political system claiming to bring peace and prosperity to the earth (Revelation 13:1-18). It is a lie of the devil. There will be no peace for fallen humanity. Only God’s elect children who have come fully out of the fallen world will receive a measure of peace and strength to withstand the coming days. Stand firm dear children it’s destined to get far worse, more than you can possibly imagine, and no politician will change God’s prophetic timeline.

Now, as promised, a brief word about silence and solitude. When you stop listening to the world, rebuking every evil thought, and keeping in step with the Spirit, then you will quickly discover how you are drawn to silence and solitude (Luke 5:16). In a fast-paced world with a thousand voices coming at you to be heard, we learn to relish the quiet times before the Lord so that He will bring to our memory His many words of encouragement and needed direction. As we wait patiently upon the Lord, time appears to stop, as our spirit is refreshed and even our physical bodies are somehow miraculously healed in His presence. All stress is jettisoned to allow God’s peace to flood our souls (Philippians 4:7). The world can be falling apart all around us as politicians continue to make their empty promises, but we have the assurance that God will bring everything to its prophetic end ultimately destroying all evil and delivering His beloved children to everlasting bliss. Dear children, contrary to what your politician says, this is not our home but simply a staging area for our eternal home in heaven. Let us get busy leading people to the foot of the cross and not to the next political rally.

The Harvest of the Earth

At the end of the age just prior to the fall of Babylon, the Son of Man with His holy angels did reap the righteous souls of the earth as the other angels did reap the souls of fallen humanity. Speaking of the other angels, the Bible says, “And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God” (Revelation 14:19). Jesus said that the wheat and tares would grow up together until the harvest at the end of the age (Matthew 13:30). It is necessary to wait until the wheat had become mature in their faith, and if we press our analogy, then the tares must also become mature in their evil desires, to become pridefully self-sufficient apart from their Creator. As the evil gets even more evil and the righteous get more righteous, then it will cause a natural division among the worldwide population. We are not talking about religious people versus non-religious people, but we are talking about righteousness and evil contrary to their professed religious beliefs. This separation will eat into the very fabric of society causing unbelievable chaos. It will eat into the very fabric of the family unit ripping it apart, creating great pain and untold suffering. You might be thinking, why is God allowing this to happen? Or you might be thinking, why doesn’t God come back and get the righteous and allow the evil to tear themselves apart?

Well, if we seek the heart of God, then we will know that answer even before we ask. God’s plan is to bring home a truly righteous harvest that will walk with Him throughout all eternity in absolute bliss. God longs for a beautiful harvest, of His own choosing, that will have no taint of unrighteousness, but will have a single-minded loyalty and unwavering trust in Jesus Christ when everything around them is woefully falling apart. After Israel had been held captive for many years in Babylon, God said through the prophet Isaiah, “Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction” (Isaiah 48:10). This was and is God’s method for choosing and preparing His people for deliverance. No, God’s people will not fly away in some secret rapture until the harvest is ready. There will be no greater joy than being delivered from our furnace of affliction when we may literally think we cannot take it anymore. This time of rejoicing will come if we stand firm and not be overcome by the growing evil all around us. God’s method is to use the evil all around us to make us stronger in our faith. As the world grows even more evil we have learned how to become even more righteous allowing the furnace of affliction to have its full effect. The Bible says, “Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him” (James 1:12, ESV).

As the world grows ever more evil there will be great pressure to say, “We can agree to disagree,” to choose a path of least resistance or the unholy path of lukewarmness. No, as God’s elect children, we must stand for the truth and live righteously, especially with our own family and friends. This in itself could cause us to think that we are living in our own furnace of affliction because there is no greater pain than having our relationships turn away from us in disgust or guarded behavior. There is no greater pain than seeing our precious children being seduced by the world and choosing to spend less time in our company. Although we can seek comfort and solace in God’s company, it doesn’t negate the fact that abandonment is truly a grievous trial. As we reach out in face-to-face encounters with the fallen world, let us do it with confident conviction of who we are in Christ. Let us pray for every opportunity to share the love of Christ through our good deeds. And if we are shunned, let us withdraw in dignity ready to shake the dust off our feet and move on without allowing it to pull us down. There is one more thing that we must endure to allow the furnace of affliction to prepare us for the final harvest.

Let us endure the woes and wrath of God being poured out on self-righteous and unrepentant humanity. Although the wrath of God will not touch us in the same way as fallen humanity (I Thessalians 5:9), we will still feel the furnace of affliction that will drive us closer to God causing us to increase in our righteousness. On the other hand, the sore affliction from the woes and wrath of God will ignite the hatred of fallen humanity towards their fellow human beings and even God. This hatred will grow so intense that striking out verbally with every manner of insult and vulgarity will seem almost commonplace compared to what they actually do to one another. We, as God’s children, must not be pulled into their battles, political or otherwise. We must stand aloof, refusing to take sides or tarnish the name of God through unchecked hatefulness. When they curse God for their many troubles, we will take our stand with God telling them plainly that fallen humanity is reaping the consequences of their sins and their unbelief in God. Yes, as God’s chosen children, we will go through the furnace of affection to be made into the perfect image of Jesus Christ the Son of God. This increasing furnace of affliction will either drive us to the camp of the devil or it will joyfully deliver us as refined souls in Christ. To have a major harvest on the earth prior to the seven bowels of God’s wrath (Revelation 15:1 – 16:21) indicates that there must be a cataclysmic event of Biblical proportions effecting the entire Earth. We can surmise that this is a worldwide pandemic, worse than before, or a thermonuclear war reigning death and destruction on all of humanity. Either way, God’s precious children will stand firm until the very end, allowing God to refine their souls.
