Why do I still believe in Jesus Christ in a world of growing unbelief? The short answer is, I would be horrified to face another day without Christ in my life. Although we are in the world and feel all the negative influences from the world, they are only momentary distractions having no lasting effect. We feel exactly what the world feels but it has no hold on us. We too are confronted with the same drama and the unbelievable pressure from the agents of Satan to follow them in their hypocrisy. If we allow ourselves to be carried away for only a millisecond we can, and will, experience what the unbelieving world does every day. Unbeknownst to them, they are being swayed constantly by the powers of darkness to accept the many outrageous lies as the truth. They are led to believe the most astonishing things about themselves. They readily accept the bondage of their past life creating great pain and psychological trauma. They are so easily enticed to follow their every desire creating consequences beyond their worst nightmare. There is no control as they unknowingly follow the world down the same dark path of horrors untold. All this causes us, as true believers, to hold on to Christ even more tightly. We realize that Jesus Christ is our true Anchor keeping us from following the world in their unbelief. We have no desire to experience their road of horrors.
The saying is true, “we are in the world but not of the world” (taken from the words of our Lord in John’s Gospel 17:14-16). This is a great joy for us to be in the world but not of the world, but it is a deep sadness for those who have not learned its truth. So, exactly what does it mean, to not be of this world? Jesus Christ was born as a man, in the flesh, but said emphatically, “I am not of this world.” Furthermore, as believers, we are also no longer of this world.” The Bible says, “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you” (John 15:19). Wow! “Because ye are not of the world.” Let that sink in. We are no longer of the world because we have been, “chosen out of the world.” This is great news! If we are not of the world then the world no longer has any power over us. Everything they say about themselves has nothing to do with us. Their great men and scholars have written volumes about how mankind should act and behave. They have spent countless hours indoctrinating mankind, from the cradle to the grave, concerning the sciences, behavior sciences, and the psychology of man which is fine if you are of this world. On the other hand, we as the children of God are no longer of this world. Therefore, it would be foolish to follow their teachings that are no longer relevant and that change like the wind.
Unfortunately, the world is tightening its noose around the neck of those in the world by moving their indoctrination from just the schoolroom to also include the entertainment industry, the news media, and particularly all the social media platforms. Make no mistake, every teaching, every movie, every news story, and nearly every post or image on YouTube or social media is a lie fabricated by the powers of darkness to keep you in the world. Satan is thrilled that this has caused a tsunami of unbelief that has flooded the entire world. This has even overtaken many who claim to be Christians dragging them back into the world of unbelief and back onto the road of horrors. Dear children, we are not of this world. So, it’s absolutely essential to come out and be separate. The Bible says, “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you” (II Corinthians 6:17). Some time ago this statement, “not to touch the unclean thing” was a wake-up call for me. Even today I must continue to remind myself of the extreme danger of just gazing momentarily upon an image that can awaken the sexual desires or leading one down a path of perversion. The writings of a post or meme may seem harmless, but can plant thoughts that pervert the truth, weakening your faith sending you downward into a cesspool of idolatry. Therefore, it’s essential to come out from among them so that we don’t unknowingly follow the crowd to eternal damnation.
I am deeply saddened that many well-meaning Christians are used by the powers of darkness to capture the hearts and minds of others. I have seen this in both men and women posting images to present themselves sensually to attract others while intentionally or unintentionally arousing their lustful desires. Don’t touch the unclean thing! The powers of darkness also use well-meaning Christians to spread their lies and weaken the faith of others, so they too will join the growing crowd of unbelievers. Remember that Satan is very deceptive. The entire meaning of a message or post can be changed by a single word, making it difficult for most to identify the deception, causing them to believe the lie and weaken their faith. Quoting Scripture out of context appears to be Satan’s favorite trick, seen clearly in his quoting Scripture to Christ during His temptation (See Luke 4:1-13). These out-of-context Scriptures are shared widely on social media and YouTube by well-meaning Christians, which leads others to reject the truth and embrace the lie. Perhaps the most alarming to me is to see well-meaning Christians share sayings (or quotes) from other world religions and the accepted psychobabble from the world. It deeply saddens me that Christians are being used by the powers of darkness to spread deception in the last days causing their brothers and sisters to stumble. Don’t touch the unclean thing!
Dear children, our Citizenship is in heaven. We are not of this world. It is past time to come out from among them. When we truly come out from among them, their schools of indoctrination, their movies, their news media, and all their social media platforms, then you will discover how much easier it is to be a Christian. You will realize how much easier it is to grow up in Christ, becoming all that Christ wants you to become in Christ. You will soon discover the blessings of fellowship with other true believers who have also come out from among them. In a very short time, you will witness the joy of serving others that you can reach out and touch. In time you will witness the great power of everyone using their unique Spiritual gifts for the common good of the brotherhood. Finally, you will rejoice knowing that together you have become stronger to face all that’s coming upon the world. Of course, Satan and the powers of darkness don’t want you to know this. This is not a new truth, it’s an old truth. Jesus Christ said, “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:18). As we grow up in Christ using our Spiritual gifts to strengthen the Church and its unpolluted witness to the world, we will understand why we were told to come out from among them; not to share their thoughts and ideas but to only share the true witness of Christ in the face of the devil.
I will set an example for all my brothers and sisters in Christ by making this the last article and forthcoming video to be shared on social media. For the powers of darkness have already seduced the church to have their services and prayers on their platforms to be torn apart, manipulated, and ridiculed by others. I will continue to write and produce videos, but they will only be available on my website to be shared freely among all. I will continue to pray that my writings, videos, and daily prayers will drive you to the foot of the Cross to renew your commitment to Him alone in a hostile world bent on your demise. Share my website with your church, your family, and your friends. Your children can show you how to access my website directly without going through Facebook; they will type in your internet search browser: https://www.danielsblog.org
My final thoughts, from the Lord, for my dear friends is that we cannot, we must not relax who we are in Christ with our pagan workmates and especially our family. The Bible says, “He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me” (Matthew 10:37-38). As we follow Christ together in the Spirit, I would love to hear from you often by utilizing the “Keep in Touch” form at the end of every article, video, and prayer. As the days grow more difficult it will be essential to be with other like-minded believers, who will physically stand with you to weather the coming storm. Dear friends, if you ever come close to Round Rock, Texas, let us fellowship and worship our Savior, Jesus Christ, together. Stand firm.
