At the last Trumpet, the coming of Christ, and the last Judgment many tears will be shed over the words plainly spoken by the Lord, I never knew you, away from me you evildoers! (See Matthew 7:23) In the twinkling of an eye the apostasy will be exposed, the veil will be removed, and millions will realize that they had fallen away. What a horrible day that will be. In the Spirit I can hear the cries of anguish and the heart stopping screams of those who proclaim their innocence. Even their good works could not save them. How could they not be “known” by the Lord? How could they be so blind to the truth? Yet, we now live in a day where millions are unwilling to see their true condition. They have somehow tricked their mind into believing they are known by the Lord, but have become a part of the great apostasy. To shed light on the apostasy we need to take you back to the beginning. We need to go back to a time before social programs, public education, mental health professionals, and a proliferation of drugs engineered to solve every emotional and psychological problem known to man. We need to return to a simple time when Jesus Christ was all things to all men. He came to a hurting people ravaged by a host of wickedness casting people into deep emotional and psychological problems causing bouts of erratic behavior, physical mayhem, and in extreme cases demonic possession. He came to a people hungry not only for bread but for the bread of life as they stumbled aimlessly behind their religious leaders. Their blind guides where leading them into a pit of greater confusion causing them to put their trust in hollow and deceptive philosophies, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world. (See Colossians 2:8) On the other hand, Jesus Christ came proclaiming that they should put their trust in Him alone to lead them into a new everlasting life free from the heavy weight of their captivity.
Just how involved is God in the affairs of men? The Deist who in large number settled the new world believed that God set everything in motion and then retired back to heaven allowing man to write his own destiny. Man was in charge
of his own future and free to operate without the involvement of God. In a very short time God was taken completely out of the equation by instituting the separation of Church and State allowing the State to chart her own path unencumbered by the Church’s authority and at liberty to make laws contrary to His divine principles. Although God in the beginning was acknowledged by giving an overt appearance that He was still in charge, there was a strong current of progressivism leading the masses away from trusting in God exclusively. In time this movement championed by the progressives would influence every new system developed by modern man from German Socialism in the late 1800’s to Russian Communism at the beginning of the next century. In every case up to the modern age it’s been billed as a victory for the people over its tyrannical leaders. The only thing that has held this country from these extremes is the wealthy capitalist fighting with their last breath to hold on to power and the support it’s received from the Christian community. After many years of leading the masses to trust in their government for schooling, heath care, welfare, and other social services I am afraid the days are numbered as we slip into socialism forcing capitalism to adhere to the new doctrine.
