When the World Falls Apart

Nobody wants to think about when the world falls apart. Most will simply ignore this message as they have ignored most prophetic messages, while some will spin their own interpretation, while others will take it to heart seeking God’s guidance for the days ahead. I pray that you do the latter. The problem with today’s world, to use an old idiom, is that most are, “going from pillar to post.” They are always searching for the truth, most often in the wrong place, causing them to change what they believe multiple times and never arrive at the truth. They don’t know the truth about themselves or the world in which they live. So, when the world starts to fall apart, most won’t recognize it until it’s too late. Even if some recognize the decline and try to stop it, it will slip into total madness, because they don’t know the truth about how to stop it. The political establishment cannot stop the decline. The lukewarm church cannot stop the decline. Everything they do will end up in chaos. I hope to spare you of that, by convincing you that the world as we now know it has been falling apart for some time now and is gradually getting worse until it becomes unrecognizable. That should not only frighten you, but it should horrify you. So, please let me encourage you to learn how to stop the decline before it’s too late.

To get our bearings we need to journey back to a quieter time before the internet, cellphones, 24-hour news, and social media. Family and church were at the center of what most of us did. If we were not reading a good book, then we were sitting on the front porch visiting face-to-face with our neighbors. We were taught at an early age that God had all the answers to our questions about the universe and was more than capable of solving all of our physical and emotional problems. We learned early on how to apply God’s Word in the Bible to every situation and understood well the necessity of prayer and meditation. Of course, we had our wars and rumors of wars. We had our diseases and vaccines. We had our occasional crazy person. Yes, we even had our criminals that were rarely seen or even talked about. We also had those people who were unfamiliar with God’s solutions in the Bible, so we spent ample time with them to help them overcome their emotional chaos. However, in time things began to slowly change in the world making it nearly unrecognizable by most. The world was no longer the same. It was as if we had all entered some kind of future shock.

After sixty years of witnessing this change, we have come to realize that the world we once knew was falling apart. It was no longer the same. Although the physical world has also changed putting humanity at risk, it is the change to humanity that’s put it in far greater danger. The danger is so eminent that if we don’t reverse course soon it will be most difficult to put into words what will happen. In today’s world, we have seen crazy or insane people doing horrible things. We have seen criminals do the unthinkable, shocking our insensibilities. We have seen an increase in hate and violence where the whole world is bashing one another. We have seen an increase in suicide. Now, imagine with me for a moment if nearly every person on the planet was carried away with this kind of horrific behavior, it would be beyond pandemonium or chaos. This is exactly where humanity is headed, destroying one another along with the physical planet. It’s not too late to stop it, but we must act today. If we don’t, then all will be lost. If we don’t stop the decline, then the Antichrist will come and restore order by putting humanity under his control. The lawless one will promise law and order and a bright future.

So, how can we stop it? First, we must realize that we are emotional creatures created in God’s image. Yes, we have had many physical problems but at the heart of all our problems are our emotions. As emotional creatures, we need love, compassion, and understanding from others. We need a sense of belonging. We need to understand our changing and often erratic emotions. We need to understand what drives our behavior. We need to understand our passion for learning and becoming. When we observe the world today, we see that humanity has lost control of its emotions. Most are no longer in control leading them to seek advice from a world being run by the powers of darkness. Satan and his powers of darkness will not give you the truth but allow everyone to sink deeper and deeper into the pit of immortality. Satan is laughing at humanity who has rejected the truth from their Creator and has accepted the lie believing that they have the power within themselves to overcome their problems. This is the same lie given to humanity from the very beginning and throughout every age believing that they can harness their own power. In ages past, humanity has believed that they could harness the power from their idols, then later through their higher learning, then eventually through their drugs, and in the coming days through their technology or artificial intelligence. Satan has convinced humanity that they have the power within themselves to overcome all of their problems and should only pay lip service to their God.

Well, we know all too well that humanity is not capable of solving its own emotional and psychological problems. Even when artificial intelligence is introduced, it will fail. There is only one answer that can turn the tide. Humanity must trust God who is the only one capable of solving all of their problems. This will not be an easy thing for the world but it will not be impossible. We must demonstrate to the world that God can make a difference in our lives if we believe the Gospel and trust in Him alone to give us everything that we need for life and godliness. The Bible says, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue” (II Peter 1:3). So, it is God who has the power to give us everything we need to solve all of our problems in life. This knowledge comes from God’s only begotten Son, a knowledge that allows us to overcome every problem in life. This amazing knowledge will help us to put off the old life of sin and put on the new life in Christ, a life that is completely different from fallen humanity. This awesome knowledge will also lead us to the glory of our new life in Christ, which has been transformed, allowing us to partake of the divine nature (II Peter 1:4).

Those who have tasted this wonderful knowledge given to us in the Bible can attest to experiencing one little miracle after another as God works everything together for good for those who love God and have been called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28). Unfortunately, the modern church has all but rejected this Scripture truth and have turned to the world to receive their knowledge that comes from the powers of darkness. Moreover, this false knowledge along with their psychotropic drugs and counseling, are unable to resolve humanity’s issues. The only way that we can reverse the damage caused to humanity is to come out from among them and be separate (II Corinthians 6:17-18). I have been preaching this for years to no avail. It is like the entire world is hooked on the knowledge that comes from the powers of darkness. They simply don’t want to give it up. Most believers in Christ have integrated the world’s knowledge with the teachings of the Holy Scripture, which is an abomination. To do so will keep them in bondage to Satan and the coming Antichrist. We will never stop the decline and deliver our people from bondage until we have truly come out from the fallen world bringing our children and grandchildren with us. If God’s true children will come out from the world by no longer trusting in the political establishment, the lukewarm church, public education, the news media, and social media, then we will be able to stop the decline into chaos. Dear children, let us be counted among the faithful remnant by stopping the decline into chaos.

When the World Stops Listening

They say the mind can take only so much and then it stops listening. Some are calling it overload, while others are calling it selective hearing.  Whatever it is, it appears that the whole world has stopped listening. They have turned away from the ancient religions and are embracing a new future that promises many unbelievable advances in technology. These changes promise to enhance humanity’s ability to experience a deeper understanding of the entire universe and their unique place in it. These changes promise to give them a fulfilled life where the whole world will come together as one in peace and tranquility. These changes promise to open the door to a new reality where anything is possible from communicating with the animal kingdom to utilizing artificial intelligence to enhance their abilities. Nothing seems impossible to a world that has jettisoned classic Christianity for a brave new world. Although many will continue to play church, they no longer trust in God for their future, and they no longer trust in religion to chart their path ahead. They have joined the lukewarm church and no longer listen to God exclusively.

We live in a world that no longer wants to hear the deep things about the risen Christ and His miraculous work through the indwelling Spirit. They no longer want to hear about our need for Spiritual growth by putting off the old life and putting on the new life in Christ. They no longer want to hear that we have been given everything we need for life and godliness, which would cause them to reject most of humanity’s self helps. They no longer want to hear about God’s loving providence, even if we must faithfully endure trials and tribulations. The world has stopped listening because they have either rejected Christianity altogether or they have grown comfortable with the lukewarm church. It’s a sad state of affairs when we equate the rejection of Christianity with the lukewarm church but unfortunately, that’s exactly where Satan has led the modern church. The modern church has aggressively accepted all the new teachings from the world causing them to turn a deaf ear to the eternal truths passed on to us by our forefathers. So, let’s take a closer look at these unchanging truths that must be embraced by every true believer in Christ and truths that must be tirelessly proclaimed from the pulpit of their churches.

The true Church of God embraces the power and miraculous work of the Holy Spirit (John 6:4-15; I Corinthians 12:1-31). Without the power of the Holy Spirit, we will never be all that God wants us to be in Christ. Without the miraculous work of the Holy Spirit, the church will become stagnant in its growth and not be that bright shining light on a hill. The good news is this power of the Holy Spirit is immediately available to every believer who is called into the Kingdom. There is no waiting for those who believe and know in their hearts that they have been called. The Spirit is our Helper in all things from Spiritual growth to understanding and using our Spiritual gifts for the furtherance of God’s Kingdom here on earth. We have all been given Spiritual gifts not based on our natural abilities but on our call into the eternal Kingdom. Furthermore, the Spirit stays with us every moment of every day as our new Holy Resident. He always guides us and directs us along life’s narrow path experiencing one miracle after another that’s only fully realized as we mature in Christ. Every true Church embraces the power and miraculous work of the Holy Spirit.

The true Church of God embraces the absolute need for Spiritual growth from one degree of glory to another (II Corinthians 3:18). Spiritual growth is not about learning empty doctrines and endless rituals or memorizing the entire Bible from cover to cover. On the other hand, it is working closely with the indwelling Spirit by receiving His convictions and following His prompting even if it’s extremely uncomfortable. Reading slowly and methodically Holy Scripture allows it to penetrate deep within our own hearts bringing forth remorse, confession, and repentance, thus putting off the old life of sin and putting on the new life in Christ. In the beginning, you will not read far before the tears of remorse flow down your cheeks leading you to cry out to the Lord in confession, agreeing to turn from your sin and never repeat it. In the place of the old life, we discover the new life, which must be put into place immediately, which takes great faith. Although putting on the new life in Christ may seem uncomfortable and quite awkward, in time through the power of the indwelling Spirit you will blossom with joy and a peace that defies understanding. The true believer doesn’t look to grow only once a week by listening to Spirit-filled preaching, but they grow Spiritually every day by reading Holy Scripture and listening to the indwelling Spirit. Every true Church embraces the absolute need for Spiritual growth.

The true Church of God embraces the sufficiency of Holy Scripture for all of life and godliness (II Peter 1:3). The Bible says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (II Corinthians 5:17). This is a beautiful truth that all the old hang-ups and besetting sins we had before Christ no longer have a hold on us. We have been set free to grow up Spiritually in Christ to become a beautiful new creation. We have not been left alone but have the indwelling Spirit, our Helper, and the Holy Scripture that gives us everything we need for life and godliness (II Peter 1:3). All those old emotional and psychological problems no longer have a hold on the new person in Christ. God promises to give us the solution for every problem facing humanity. As true believers in Christ, we no longer need the world’s counselors or psychotropic drugs to overcome our problems. As true believers in Christ, we no longer trust fallen humanity to solve our many emotional and psychological problems, but we trust God, who created us and knows everything about us. We have learned how to bring our problems directly to God in deep prayer and meditation believing that He will solve every problem in His time. As the true Church of God, we embrace the sufficiency of Holy Scripture.

The true Church of God embraces God’s loving providence (Romans 8:28). As we grow up Spiritually every day trusting in God for all of life and godliness, we are still left temporarily in the fallen world controlled by the powers of darkness. Although the powers of darkness will use our trials and tribulations to cause us to stumble, God will always turn things around and use them for our eternal benefit if we maintain our trust in His loving providence. The Bible says, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28). It is a marvelous thing to trust in God to work all things together for good. For when we have eyes to see we will witness one miracle after another as God defeats the enemy of our souls and uses the trials and tribulations to strengthen our faith in Christ. As we mature in Christ we will learn to rejoice in trials and tribulations knowing that they are used for the perfecting of our faith (James 1:2-4). The lukewarm church is being destroyed by the many trials and tribulations of the last days, whereas the true Church of God embraces God’s loving providence.

Finally, the true Church of God embraces the exclusiveness of Christianity (John 14:6). We know that Christ is the only way to salvation, so we behave accordingly. Many claim to know the truth that Christ is the only way, but then they do their godless research for every little problem that comes into their lives. They freely associate with other religions, oftentimes seeking their advice about life and godliness. They have no problem seeking advice from the world or fallen humanity to understand the deeper truths about spirituality or the supernatural. They have no problem joining with those who practice inclusiveness, going so far as to say all paths lead to heaven. In conclusion, it’s past time for all of God’s precious children to either reform the church they attend or start a new fellowship that only preaches the truth. There is a reckoning coming very soon that will truly separate the sheep from the goats. I pray that all those who claim Jesus Christ as their Savior will be ready to defend their faith or be swept away by the teachings of the lukewarm church and the powers of darkness. The choice is yours.

Please Join Me in Prayer 

Good morning Heavenly Father. You know Lord, that the battle rages on for your beloved children as we struggle against an unjust world seeking to mold us into its image. From the politicians who enact new laws to the judges who enforce them, and to their counselors who justify them, we are led into further captivity and away from your gracious promises of a new life in Christ. We cry out to you, our God, day and night for your mercy and grace to stand firm against our adversaries so that in time all your beautiful promises can be fulfilled in our lives. We long to experience the new life in Christ free from the haunting memories of our past failures. We long to experience total perfection free from the sinful habits of our old sin nature. We long to experience all your beautiful and powerful promises fulfilled in our lives. We continue to cry out day and night in prayer believing that you will, that you are, fulfilling all your wonderful promises. We will continue to fight the good fight of faith until we walk with you in paradise. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?” (Luke 18:7).

Extreme Danger on the Horizon

If we see danger and don’t sound the alarm, then we shall be held accountable by our Lord (Ezekiel 33:3-9). I have been greatly grieved that many Christians have arisen and cast a serious accusation against other believers in Christ by stating that they are not really Christians. We know from God’s Word to do such a thing is the same thing as calling them a fool, putting them in danger of hell fire (Matthew 5:22). History teaches us that most all the persecutions against Christians have come from others claiming to be Christians, excluding the persecution by Muslims. Although this is a common practice among many Christians in our day when someone slightly disagrees with their theology, it becomes a greater concern when an entire movement or people are being targeted as not being Christians. When thousands of mostly white evangelical Christians are being targeted for their beliefs about the political establishment, then we should all be concerned. Although this targeting may only be towards “Christian Nationalism,” it could very easily spill over to other Christians who have similar beliefs about the political establishment. Although I am personally not involved in this political movement, I still hold to some of their beliefs, which I have been preaching for many years.

For many years, I have been preaching, teaching, and writing about how the Christian community has so easily allowed itself to be led astray by integrating the world’s teachings with Holy Scriptures. They no longer believe that God has given us everything we need for life and godliness (II Peter 1:3). Therefore, the lines at the counseling offices are growing longer as the lines to trusting in God’s ability to solve their problems are growing much shorter. The greater problem is this reliance upon psychological counseling is being taught in schools as they have rejected both prayers in schools and Bible study. If that were not enough, little children are being taught to ignore their parents, because they have the freedom to choose their own gender and experiment with sexual immorality, or other perverted lifestyles. This opens the door to abortion on demand thus denying the sanctity of life (Jeremiah 1:5). The horror continues as every other world religion is taught as being equal to Christianity as well as even introducing them to atheism or the viability of New Age thinking. We could go on with changing history to immoral textbooks, but you get the point, that we are becoming more of a pagan nation rather than a Christian nation.

Although I greatly love my brothers and sisters in the movement, Christian Nationalism, I believe they have no chance of really changing the direction of this nation through political activism. After losing at least three generations of our children through the diabolical move away from the Biblical faith of our forefathers, changing every single political office in America will not change her course. The only thing that will eventually turn things around is to faithfully follow God’s plan in the Bible. This will be our only hope. If you refuse and put your trust in the Christian Nationalism movement to change the direction of the nation, then you will need to heed the warning. I have already mentioned that many Christian churches believe that this movement is not Christian, going so far as to call them heretics, leaving it open for persecution or something far worse. Christians who are actively standing against Christian Nationalism have gathered signatures from over 24,000 clergy, church leaders, and lay people across the United States. In their statement of faith, they have clearly stated that they have no problem integrating with all faiths or non-faiths (pagans) in every area of society (the public square). We have seen what that has accomplished by allowing other faiths and non-faiths to make our laws and teach our children. What’s coming will horrify you but should not surprise you if you know your history.

When we study Old Testament history our eyes are immediately opened to the extreme danger of allowing God’s people to integrate with other people who follow other faiths or have no faith. In every instance, we have seen God’s people carried away in excessive immorality as they turned away from their God. Furthermore, if we take a lesson from history, this movement, Christian Nationalism, could be used as a scapegoat for all the problems facing America, especially the chaos caused by the sheer number of people and movements teaching their various beliefs. The coming Antichrist will seek to bring order out of chaos by enshrining man’s laws over the laws of God. The coming Antichrist, who is also called the man of lawlessness, will allow the people to do whatever they want, no matter how immoral, as long as they don’t proclaim the exclusiveness of Christianity, don’t elevate God’s laws over man’s laws, and continue to integrate the world’s teachings with Holy Scripture (II Thessalonians 2:3, ESV). In Germany, Hitler used the Jews as a scapegoat first through persecution, then by extermination. The Antichrist will be the instrument that Satan will use to exterminate Christians who are dedicated to changing his direction and remaining obedient to Christ alone.

As I have already stated, we have hope if we follow God’s Holy Scriptures. We are called to do two things and neither one is political. The first thing we must do is to come out from among them, which includes our children, grandchildren, and our great-grandchildren (II Corinthians 6:17; Revelation 18:4). Take them out of public school immediately. Either teach them yourself or enlist Christian teachers that will use only your syllabus (Proverbs 22:6). They must learn early on that sexual immorality is wrong and that burning for the same sex is an abomination (I Corinthians 6:18; Leviticus 18:22; Romans 1:27). They must learn early on that there is only one true God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (I Timothy 2:5). They must learn the exclusiveness of Christianity (John 14:6). They must learn early on that the Scriptures are sufficient for all of life and godliness (II Peter 1:3). The second thing every Christian is called to do is to let your light shine in a very dark world always ready and willing to share the hope within you (Matthew 5:16; I Peter 3:15). If we see our brother committing a trespass, then we must confront them and restore them with all gentleness (Galatians 6:1). Many believers throughout Christian history have taken this high road and have overthrown empires and overcome corrupt theological institutions. Dear Christian, we must stop the integration and come out from among them.

Finally, living in a free country we have our right to vote, but we must never put our trust in the political establishment. If we do as some of our brothers and sisters have done in Christian Nationalism, then we will be gravely disappointed and will soon be facing persecution or worse. Dear friends, the Antichrist is already at the door. If we have eyes to see, then we have already witnessed his work. Most Christians no longer believe in the sufficiency of Scripture. They no longer believe in the exclusiveness of Christianity. We are already experiencing the great falling away, which will make us easy prey for the Antichrist to lead us around by the nose from one social media post to another. Every day he is training the world to reject their God given reality and flee to the coming Metaverse. God help us. We know and can feel the old sin nature wanting us to pick up the weapons of this world and fight back through voting, political maneuvering, rallies, advertisements, and even chanting in the streets. We will vote, but we know in our hearts that there is only one path to victory, a victory that every Christian longs for where all of your people will be obedient to God’s Word alone, above the immoral laws of the land. So, help us dear Lord to take up our cross and follow your path to victory using only spiritual weapons. We shall overcome. Please accept this prophetic word and warning from your brother in Christ who deeply loves all of God’s precious children. Amen.

Destruction All Around Us

Give us eyes, Oh Lord, to see the destruction all around us. Every person and creature on the planet is affected. The world cannot see. Most of your children cannot see. The unseen powers of darkness are actively controlling the minds of most, leading them to do and think the unthinkable. They have turned away from God and now rest under the powers of darkness. You can see it in their eyes as they lash out at one another. They are always accusing the other side of all their problems. What we have seen thus far with the storming of the capital is only the tip of the iceberg, what’s coming will be our worst nightmare. It’s much more than unchecked lawlessness. It’s much more than wars and rumors of war. It’s much more than the complete breakdown of society. It’s much more than an economic collapse. It’s much more than the worst calamities caused by all the so-called natural disasters. The increasing number of catastrophic earthquakes, violent hurricanes, and flooding will pale in comparison to what’s coming. Even the increasing heat index driving humanity underground to escape the unbearable heat will not compare with what’s coming. It will get so bad that people will run to the proverbial caves in the Book of Revelation to escape what’s coming upon the world (see Revelation 6:15-17). Continue reading Destruction All Around Us

Christian, Hold the Line Empirically

Fundamentally, through observation and experience, Christians can hold the line against the works of the devil. This is not a theory or pure logic; it is an empirically tested method. There was One who came beyond time and space to show us the way, a way that has all been lost in our modern age. We live in an age of theories and logic. We have come to rely upon our highly technological age to chart our path. We have bowed down to the so-called proven theories of the Scientific Age. All this is leading humanity further and further into darkness. To chart our own path, will always lead us into satanic bondage, and further away from God. Our observation started two thousand years ago by following Jesus Christ on the dusty trails of Judea and then continued by following the writings of those who originally followed Him. We followed their experiences in putting off the old life, which barred the way of the devil. Then we followed their written experiences of putting on the new life in Christ, which overcame the works of the devil and opened a new horizon. This has all been lost in the new age that’s leading the entire world into slavery to the powers of darkness. Continue reading Christian, Hold the Line Empirically
