Are We Rushing Headlong into a Repressive Dynasty?

In recent months, there has been a revolving door at the White House of world leaders, but now on Mr. Trump’s first foreign trip he is scheduled to meet with the Vatican. There are more questions than answers. They say with every action there is a reaction. From revolution to counter-revolutions there is always the resistance fighting for what they perceive to be the truth. From protests to martial law and from revolutions to a change in governing powers most will suffer. From liberal governments to repressive so the pendulum swings. Politically we as a country are on a very slippery slope that would affect the entire world. In our eagerness to escape the immorality of a liberal government we may be rushing headlong into a repressive dynasty seeking to interject religious laws and mandates into its governance, forcing the population to adhere or face the consequences. How did we ever get into this mess? Whatever happened to the moderate who would keep immorality in check while giving all a freedom of religious expression or descent.

A brief look at history will help. From the First Century until now there has been those who have worked tirelessly for a Kingdom now theology, rejecting the notion that people could openly reject its laws and precepts to govern their behavior. The Roman Catholic Church went that way for many centuries demanding that all the citizens of the Holy Roman Empire adhere to its laws and theological beliefs or suffer the consequences of persecution and death. History, not changed for political purposes, teaches us a lesson of how nations of people in reaction to repressive or liberal governments will allow the pendulum to swing all the way in the opposite direction. That is, to go from one extreme to another. We have seen this throughout history, one example being the religious Reformation against the Catholic Church. The most alarming example in our day, is the resistance to a liberal government and gross immorality that could set the stage for a repressive government. The pendulum has swung all the way in the opposite direction.

I am convinced that the last government who will seek to expand its power and influence around the world will overcome the Christian. The Bible says, “And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them; and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations” (Revelation 13:7). So, the question is, how will the Christians saints be overcome? This is a critical question that must be entertained by every true believer in Christ. Let me say clearly that Satan will not do it as most expect. It will not be a frontal attack dragging every Christian off to the chopping block. This was done in Ancient Rome, which in the end did not overcome the saints, but did the opposite. Ancient writers wrote that the persecution was the seeds of the Church. Instead of destroying the Church it grew stronger. To show their faithfulness to Christ, they willingly faced persecution with joy in their hearts as they witnessed the gospel to their tormentors and praised God that they were counted worthy to suffer for His Name.

In the last days, Satan has another plan to overcome the Christian. In one word, that will need further explanation, is “deception.” At last the Christian community, under the new governing authority, will feel that they have the upper hand against immorality. They will no longer be forced to participate in things they don’t believe in. In time bakers will have a sigh of relief. After many years, they have regained their voice in the political arena allowing it to be preached from the pulpit. They have a school choice for their dear children. After many years the pendulum has swung fully into the opposite direction and for a while everything seems wonderful. Even Social Media allows the Christian to express whatever they want without the fear of censorship. Are we being deceived? What are we willing to pay for this new-found freedom? It may cost you more than what you have bargained for.

For a time, everyone is granted a mixed bag of theology, which is quietly accepted in exchange for the new freedoms. Everyone is getting accustomed to turning their head or giving a nod, because honestly most will admit it’s better than before. As more and more reports surface that might lead the Christian community to question the direction of the governing powers the more these reports will be seen as illegitimate or fake news. As the community of the faithful hangs on by a thread the more the new government will step up its control of immorality to regain its base and faithful support. The inevitable is coming quickly. To control all immorality then all must be controlled. Keep your religion whatever form that takes, keep your mixed bag of theology, who cares, but all people must obey the new laws. Christian or non-Christian all must obey or face the consequences.

So, what is the new law? And who are the first in line to obey? Every so-called Christian who has not had their name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be eager to show their allegiance by obeying every law that keeps immorality in check and under control. So, what’s this new law? Simply put, demonstrate your allegiance to the governing powers by taking your mark whatever form it takes, visible or invisible who can say, perhaps allowing you to be tracked or be more readily identified and of course giving you the ability to buy or sell. And for those who are unwilling to participate, they will have a very difficult time surviving in the new world and eventually will face the consequences. Let me be very clear this will all seem quite normal and accepted by all. It will seem to be no different than living in a cashless society and the use of Credit Cards in days gone by. Even giving your worshipful allegiance to those in power will appear harmless and not much different than saluting the flag. Sad to say that all this is but the tip of the iceberg. It is the participation in supporting the new governing authorities, instituting their new laws of religious morality, and forcing everyone to follow them – that’s the real tragedy.

The gift of God to change man from the inside out will be exchanged to forcing man to change on the outside through their new laws of morality. The gift of God will be exchanged for a lie of the devil. Many, if not most of those who claim to know Christ as their Savior will be caught up in this, forcing their morality upon the world, and in so doing, the saying will come true, “the saints will be overcome.” The whole world will be deceived. Lord, open our eyes to things to come. This whole participation in the world’s agenda has started many years ago by convincing mankind that God does not have all the answers in His Word the Bible. The world for some time now has been treating humanity for all its emotional and psychological problems, which has paved the way to complete the process by now controlling his behavior not only through behavior modification, but through his new religious laws of morality. To legislate morality to change man’s behavior will become the mandate of the new government.

We will have come full cycle from the time of the Holy Roman Empire to the kingdom of the Beast. Who can stand? Dear, Christian let me encourage you to not participate in this devilish scheme. This is not God’s Way. His Way is to become a new person in Christ, that will change man’s behavior from the inside out, which can only be accomplished through faith in Christ. Satan from the beginning has always tried to mimic God in many ways from the Holy Trinity to death and resurrection of the beast (See Revelations 13:3) to the salvation of humanity. We must stand firm and resist the deception coming upon the whole world.

Is Jesus Christ a Nationalist or a Globalist?

Is Jesus Christ a nationalist or a globalist? Let’s not be too quick to answer that question until we examine the facts. I believe that both political camps on either side of the divide would claim divine support for their position. In recent years’ globalism has gained support from most of the younger generation in the West and especially in America. This is due in large part because of the professors of higher learning and the movie industry. Young people are taught that everyone should put their differences aside for the greater good of a united world where every nation and every people group would be considered equal. Where most would agree that all races should be accepted as equals, they now also include all sexual orientations, all religions, all immigrants and their form of personal government even if it does not agree with the constitution and laws of the host country.

Perhaps the greatest marketer of this idea of globalism is the movie industry who is producing movies at the speed of light to convince the world of the many great benefits of being a global community that accepts everyone’s beliefs as equal. This is typically accomplished by creating a common enemy that only a united world could overcome. For example, we have seen this in movies like “Independence Day” a decade ago, but even more convincing of the need for globalization in the recent sequel. We have also seen this in movies about natural disasters that affect the entire world like “2012” and many others. Again, the only way to be successful and overcome these disasters is if every nation comes together as a global community. These movies have a profound effect upon the younger generation who has completely bought into this new ideology. This is very obvious when someone like President Donald Trump comes along preaching nationalism, which has brought shock and awe to the young people causing many to miss school and join with the protestors marching in the streets of America. Let’s not miss the impact that the movie industry has upon the young people in America to embrace their liberal agenda and the need for globalization.

I find the whole argument for globalization as hypocritical, because of their wholesale rejection of classic Christianity. They accept Islam who states in the Koran that Christians should be killed or at least be treated as inferior and nothing better than a servant or a sex slave. Although we as Christians believe that there is only one Way to Heaven through the divine Son of God, we still respect and love all people hoping and praying that they will have their eyes opened to the truth. It’s very hypocritical to allow Islam to reject all other religions as inferior, but insist that Christianity allow their children to learn about Islam and its traditions in public school as a “so called” religion of peace. Moreover, a judge just recently required a Christian woman to attend a mosque or go to jail. The government is severely limiting what can be said about Islam, homosexuality, transgender’s, the professionals of psychology (the new world religion in disguise) or anything that would speak against their quest for globalization or the acceptance of all people, religions, and sexual orientation. Globalization simply will not work for Christianity who sees two kingdoms that transcend every nation on the planet: The Kingdom of God and the kingdom of Satan, or the Kingdom of Light and the kingdom of darkness.

Another way that globalization does not work for Christianity is we as Christians believe that God has given His children everything they need for life and godliness to deal with every conceivable emotional or psychological problem facing humanity. (See II Peter 1:3-4) Yet, globalization has completely cut Christianity out of the loop on helping people, especially in traumatic situations, and requesting only assistance from the professionals of psychology. We are approved for handing out food and clothing, but severely limited on speaking the truth claims of our Gospel or offering biblical counsel to those who are suffering. Again, I see the hypocrisy in this, because Islam is allowed to counsel (with its psychology) enlist people into their false religion and provide for their physical needs, while Christianity is forbidden to do so. So, globalization is for all nations and religions that can come together as equals, but Christianity is seen as less than equal while our people are still being persecuted around the world with little intervention by the world community to stop it. Yet, through globalization we are allowing many Muslim immigrants to invade the West, while we somehow forget the many Christian refugees around the world. Globalization does not work for Christianity.

So, we see our answer is starting to come into focus. Jesus Christ is not a globalist, but is He really a nationalist? In the Lord’s prayer, He taught His followers to pray daily “Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10). Clearly among all the nations in the world there is one Kingdom that cannot be entered by those who don’t believe that the divine Son of God, Jesus Christ, came to earth, died on the Cross of Calvary, and on the third day arose from the dead and is now seated in Heaven at the right hand of God. It cannot be entered by anyone who does not believe that Jesus Christ is the only Way to the Father in Heaven. So, in that sense Jesus Christ is a nationalist, because His Kingdom is set apart from all other kingdoms in the world. Simply put, God only sees two kinds of people when viewing the world. He does not see the individual countries, nor does He see the individual races, but what He does see is the believers on one hand, and the unbelievers (or pagans) on the other. Only the globalist would like to combine the believer with the unbeliever to build their utopia, whereas the true nationalist wants only to build the Kingdom of God that will be dispersed among all nations until the Second Coming where God’s Eternal Kingdom will be the only one left standing. The true nationalist will work tirelessly to safeguard the rights and safety of all believers in every country, allowing them to express themselves without the fear of persecution or imprisonment.

The true nationalist will not interfere with the government of other countries. Jesus Christ had said, “Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s” (Matthew 22;21). He refused to take a position for or against an evil nation, but preached that His Gospel would go into all nations for the salvation of all who would believe. Jesus Christ never spoke about setting up globalism where all the nations could come together and water down the Gospel, but He did preach that our Gospel would go into all the world among every nation and set people free from their enslavement to the power of sin. He never even preached about setting up a Christian nation, but He did preach about the invisible Kingdom of God that would stand against the powers of darkness and invite people from every nation to become citizens. He spoke about an Eternal Kingdom that one day would become visible at His Second Coming when every nation on the earth would be brought to their knees.

As the New Jerusalem descends from Heaven to earth, about the same physical size of the continental United States of America, it will be the only Kingdom on earth with all of humanity entering her gates, enjoying her government, peace, safety, and fellowship among all her citizens. The Bible says, “And they shall bring the glory and honor of the nations into it. And there shall in no wise enter into it anything that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie; but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life” (Revelation 21:26-27). In this sense, Jesus Christ is a nationalist leading His followers to pray daily “Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10). Amen.

Bring Trump Down to Your Own Peril

We would have to be blind not to see the liberal establishment aggressively trying to bring down President Donald Trump. This is much more than just fault finding and nipping at his heals. It is much more than just spreading lies through the dishonest media or marching in the streets. They have changed the narrative. By doing so they are once again making themselves look like the good guys in the eyes of the people. They do this by calling themselves the “resistance” as if they are resisting an evil power, but they forget to point out that they are the ones who have kept the black community in bondage to a life of drugs, gangs, and the crumbling inner city. They forget to mention that they are the ones who first sought to sterilize the negro or at least kill their unborn children by the millions to keep them in check and under control. They have changed the narrative by calling the conservative party the party of hate, yet they are the ones who have encouraged their people to resist law enforcement while they vandalize and destroy public property. They are the ones who have caught conservatives and beat them publicly. Unlike the previous administration while most conservatives remained relatively quiet the liberal establishment has attempted to block nearly everything our current President is attempting to accomplish by pointing out real and unreal negative points to all the people.

Formidable Voice to a Divided World

Should there be unity among all believers? This question has captivated the heart of man since the time of Christ. The Catholic church still embraces this notion of unity, but now allows great diversity among its ranks. The evangelical church has splintered off into a multitude of denominations each with their own exclusive doctrines and practices shunning the rest. This has also given rise to other fringe groups producing both fanatical and the heretical. Yet, Jesus Christ prayed for unity among all true believers, that they would be one as the Father and the Son are One, in unity of thought and action. Jesus went on to say that this unity among true believers would be a witness to the world that He was sent by the Father. Unity among all true believers would be a witness! Let me suggest that this would be a very powerful witness to a dying world that has all but rejected Jesus Christ as the only Savior. The voice of Christians and the diversity of His churches has had little effect upon the world. No one is listening. Yet they listen to the heathen in protest, while their numbers are very small, their voices are united. The unrighteous minority has had a profound effect upon the direction of this country, while the Christian Church has had almost none. Christian unity can have a formidable voice to a divided world, but before we continue it’s necessary to deal with the one objection that many have in our day when discussing unity.

Discerning the Dark Forces of Evil

As deception is falling upon this world are you being deceived or do you have discernment? The extent of the deception in the last days is mind boggling. How strong is this deception? The Bible says, “And it was given unto him (the coming Beast) to make war with the saints, and to overcome them; and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him (the Beast), whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world” (Revelation 13:8). To me it is mind boggling that the entire world can be so deceived. Well, the reason is also given. The entire world was deceived “because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved” (See II Thessalonians 2:10). Indeed, the love of the truth will open our spiritual eyes and give us needed discernment for the days in which we live, which we will discuss in detail.
