God’s Powerful Delusion

Mankind is always learning but never perceiving. He is always studying but never understanding.  With man’s quest for the truth and his efforts in higher learning it has only driven him further away from the truth. With all of man’s dreams, visions, and so called prophecies it has only driven him further away from the truth. Like a rudderless ship many are always cast about by every wind of doctrine, but never coming to the simple truth. For a reason that I will explain later, many have never been happy with the simple truth, but have attempted to complicate it, by adding teachings, upon teachings, too such a degree that the truth is lost and man is left in the wilderness wandering about with no hope but condemned to a life of misery and greater confusion. In large part this is the condition of the church around the world and especially here in America. They have lost their way and no longer love the truth which has lulled the church to sleep. No matter what happens the church will not awaken until she returns to the simple truth. Persecution and death will not awaken her, nor will death and destruction caused by the increase in natural disasters, nor will wars or rumors of war, but they will remain in their sleep continually tossed about by every wind of doctrine. Even revivals will not awaken the church until she returns to the simple truth and demonstrate her love for it. Until that happens she along with the rest of the world will rest under the powerful delusion sent by God for their rejection of His truth. Continue reading God’s Powerful Delusion

Crisis Coming Hope Ascending

Crisis coming has been the regular diet for most Christians. I have personally never witnessed a time when the Christian community has been so caught up in the prophetic looking for every little sign and the demon behind every rock. Make no mistake, I too have written considerably about the things to come, warning God’s children, giving commentary on world events, and standing against the abuses of our age. On the other hand, I have also tried to balance it with godly counsel on how to stand firm and not lose hope. I have discovered that the Bible does the same, proclaiming the whole blessed truth giving much encouragement to God’s children who have in times past and in the present have had to deal with the most difficult of circumstances. There is nothing new under the sun. Just taking a cursory look in the past two thousand years of church history one does not miss the many times of persecution against God’s beloved children who stood their ground unwilling to waver from His magnificent truth. These true saints from the past and the present stood their ground not on all the signs that they had gathered or their knowledge of things to come, but on the pure teachings of God’s Word concerning the hope held out to every believer. Dear friend, do you have this kind of hope that will hold you secure during the coming crisis? Continue reading Crisis Coming Hope Ascending
