Trump May be the Catalyst to Usher in the Antichrist

So, why do we write, “Trump may be the catalyst to usher in the Antichrist?” Admittedly he is the first administration that has forced so many things to go in the opposite direction. Step by step with the power of his pen he has reversed many things from the previous administration while he appears to embrace the Christian community. Only the power and persuasion of the Antichrist could the pendulum be forced to go in the opposite direction during the next administration. The lure for globalization has been too great, fantasized by Hollywood for many years. The global desire to address the effects of global warming has been too high, taught and accepted by most. The longing for tolerance of all other belief systems with open borders to all has had a profound effect upon the liberal mindset. The acceptance of all lifestyles including homosexuality and transgender has captured the hearts of most. So, along comes Donald Trump who stands against it all causing the pendulum to swing all the way in the opposite direction.

The pendulum will swing back even further than before allowing the heathen to take back control of this country and the world. There will be great rejoicing in the streets. Instead of crying there will be laughter. Instead of protest there will be rallies for support. The population will be willing to do anything to keep their new leaders in control. Anything! Including the taking of a Mark (visible or invisible) to show their faithful allegiance to the new leadership. As the proverbial clock is turned back everything in the previous administration will be immediately reversed. The new administration will work at lightning speed to re-enter into all its global agreements. Once again becoming a part of the world community to address global warming, to open our borders by tearing down walls and relaxing the immigration requirements, and embracing the lukewarm church who accepts other world religions into their pulpits or prayer meetings. To openly accept alternative lifestyles of homosexuality, transgender, and other perversions.

Satan has already re-opened Pandora’s Box that had been closed for nearly two thousand years.  All the gross immorality is now coming out of the closet to not only to be seen, but in time to be accepted by the masses. Homosexuality, the transgender, sexual harassment, and the raping of teenage girls is only the tip of the iceberg. The sacredness of the marriage estate will no longer exists while the courts are clogged with divorce cases. No longer will classic Christianity be able to hold this country and the world in check. No longer will they be seen as the conscience of a nation. No longer will they be accepted as the voice of God. There will be great disdain shown toward those who supported the Trump administration and especially toward the true believers in Christ. Those who stood against Globalization, the acceptance of other world religions, abortion, psychiatric drugs, the world’s counselors, and all the perversions of an open society. They will be hated. They will be hated for their beliefs. They will be hated for exposing their secret sins. They will be hated for their nonacceptance of their perverted lifestyles. They will be hated for their nonacceptance of every man’s religion and its traditions. They will be hated for their refusal to take the mark (visible or invisible) to show their faithful allegiance to the new liberal leaders.

In fact, this hate will burn red hot by the end of Mr. Trump’s term. One cannot tell at this point just how many changes Mr. Trump will execute by the end of his term in office. Nor can we tell with certainty what kind of global conflict that will arise under his leadership. If this country experiences any kind of tragedy from nuclear war to biological or chemical attack, I can assure you that Mr. Trump will be blamed. As God continues to pour out His wrath upon an unrepentant world from volcano eruptions to major earthquakes to the bowls of His wrath in the book of Revelation, Mr. Trump will be blamed. As their hatred grows this blame will be shared with God’s holy people as anarchy disrupts civilization as we know it. On the other hand, let’s be clear that Satan and his Antichrist, once they take office, will have no problem with the lukewarm church. A church that is tolerant to all other belief systems. A church that is tolerant to homosexuality and the transgender. A church that has embraced the DSM-5 for their church counselors. A church that has watered down the commands of God, claiming that many of them are for some future dispensation. A church that no longer stands for truth and righteousness, but is blown about by every wind of doctrine.

I have written before that this liberal mindset was created by Hollywood, taught by liberal college professors, and popularized by the media. This virus has eaten so deeply into the fabric of all the world’s societies that mankind is powerless to change it on his own. It would take the wrath of God poured out on unrighteous man along with the faithful testimony of His beloved children to open the eyes of an unbelieving world. As the faithful remnant living in the last days we must be prepared to share our testimony to a lost and dying world. They must hear the truth and nothing but the truth. It is only the truth that will set them free from the clutches of the enemy. They will need to hear that God’s wrath is real and is not just the result of natural disasters. They must hear that global conflict is not the blame of one man, but God allowing it to happen to open the eyes of the unbeliever. They must hear that the only thing that will change this world is the repentant heart of mankind. They must hear that all their good works of caring for the planet and attempting to minister to the needs of others are simply dirty rags in His sight if they do not believe in Jesus Christ as the Divine Son of God and His Whole Gospel.

Prepare to stand firm now, because once the leadership changes, it may be too late. Don’t wait until they start dragging you out of your houses and bringing you before the court of law as a disrupter. Don’t wait until they want to force their mark (visible or invisible) on you. Don’t expect their hate to subside just because our living conditions may improve. Don’t expect them to lose their hate because they have lost their welfare and must work eight hours a day. Don’t expect them to lose their hate when God’s wrath burns red hot against this nation and the world. Stand firm now before that time comes. Don’t think you can hide unless you plan to join the lukewarm church who will freely take the mark (visible or invisible) and rejoice in the streets with the unbelievers and perverts. If you are thinking you have three more years, don’t forget that the hatred for you has already begun. May God bless the reading or listening to this article written under His divine guidance.

Commonality of the Lukewarm Church and Catastrophes

To use the lukewarm church and catastrophes in the same sentence unveils what most would like to escape, the Great Tribulation. There appears to be a commonality between the lukewarm church and the increase in catastrophes worldwide driving most to seek additional signs. For two thousand years prophets and seers have foretold the end of all things as we know it. Even the Bible is replete with detailed scenarios of the end time events spawning numerous interpretations most in rock solid cement. What if. What if the time has finally come. No matter what your interpretation, you feel compelled to do something. Going to a mountain top, sitting down and waiting for Christ to come is not an option. As world events get worse and the Church slips deeper into lukewarmness we can argue how close the Great Tribulation is or we can prepare to stand firm in the day in which we live.

If we say, don’t talk to me about the Tribulation, because I know that Christ is coming any minute now to rapture me, before it gets too bad. Moreover, we know our Bible says we are not destined for wrath. I would be the first one to agree, but can we talk back to God? Are we going to tell God that He is not permitted to pour out his wrath on an unrepentant world? On a world that’s worse, in many respects, than Sodom and Gomorrah. Well, the good news is we don’t need to talk back to God. We can allow His wrath to be poured out, because we are standing on His promise that His wrath will not touch us. The Bible says, “For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ” (I Thessalonians 5:9). Therefore, if we see the pagan swept away in the flood of God’s divine wrath and we are left behind to strengthen what remains then we will thank our God. We thank Him that we have obtained salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ. On the other hand, if we too are killed by some great catastrophe then we have the assurance that it was not caused by God’s wrath. No, it’s cause was the Providence of God. It is simply our time to die, our time to be raptured away into the glories of Heaven. Praise God.

Indeed, these are most amazing times when one home is consumed with a raging fire and the one next to it is left without a touch, not even the smell of smoke, or one person is swept away by flood waters and the other person by some great miracle was never harmed. We have seen this in every so called natural disaster to descend upon the planet. One will be taken in sudden death and the other one will be left completely unharmed. Both are reminiscent of the biblical account. The Bible says, “Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left” (Matthew 24:40-41). We cannot explain how one can be taken and the other left no more than we can explain why one person dies at a very young age and the other lives beyond a hundred. The whole point that Christ makes, is we should be ready at any time to go and be with the Lord or be left in this world to endure more hardships or persecutions caused by an unbelieving world. He makes this very clear in the next verse that says, “Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come” (Matthew 24:42). We do not know what hour He comes for us, nor do we know what hour He will come in the clouds for everyone. At His coming some will have the great privilege to stay and build His Kingdom here on earth while others will be swept away into everlasting punishment.

Night is approaching for every man, when he cannot work. Let us work while it is still day. The Bible says, “I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world” (John 9:4-5). The meaning is the night of death, and of the grave, and suggesting His own death. The night of death is a time when nothing can be done. The Bible also says, “There is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom in the grave” (Ecclesiastes 9:10). While Jesus was alive, before His death on the Cross, He would do His great work. He was the light of the world. So, until Christ comes at the end of the age or at the end of our life, we need to be working, while its still day. While it is still light. While we are still alive. So, if the rapture, His coming in the clouds where every eye will see, never comes until after the Great Tribulation then so be it. Let us roll up our sleeves and get to work

We simply cannot go up to the mountain top, sit down and wait for His coming in the clouds. It so sad that so many in our day are doing that. They will spend all their time looking at the signs (sitting on the mountain top) and not doing the Kingdom work. They will spend all their time discussing their take on eschatology (sitting on the mountain top) and not doing the Kingdom work. Or they will spend all their time playing games, going to pot lucks, movies, surfing the net or posting on Social Media (sitting on the mountain top) and not doing the Kingdom work. The Kingdom work is hard, but we are all called to it. Not just a select few, but all of us who are saved and followers of Jesus Christ. Until Jesus Christ comes in the clouds at the end of the age or until he comes for you at the end of your life then we need to stay busy doing the Kingdom work. And there is much work to be done. Encouraging the faint hearted, strengthening the weak minded, and above all lighting a fire under the lukewarm church.

So, how do we light a fire under the lukewarm church? They say that most learning is caught and not taught. I sincerely believe there is truth in this statement. Especially, when I look at the life of Jesus Christ and His Holy Apostles. They all were perfect examples of living out the life that they were teaching. Yes, they modeled Christianity. The new life in Christ. So, do we really want to make a change in the lukewarm church then we first must make a change in our own lives. Are we really modeling the new life in Christ? Are we really on fire for Christ. Are we truly excited about this new life? Are we so excited that we can’t stop telling others about it? Are we truly growing from one degree of glory to another? Are we demonstrating all the fruits of the Spirit? Are we using our Spiritual Gifts to the glory of God? When we can answer yes to all these questions then we are lighting a fire under the lukewarm church. Dear children, let me implore you to come down from the mountain top, roll up your sleeves and start working in the Kingdom by demonstrating the new life in Christ.

So, what is the commonality between the increase in catastrophes and the lukewarm church? When the Christian churches are no longer viable in stopping the increase in lawlessness or every manner of perversion then it invites God to pour out His wrath upon an unrepentant world. There is a great deal of similarities between the trumpets of God’s judgments and the Bowels of His wrath with the increase in catastrophes. If this continues without true repentance from the lukewarm church then every follower of Christ in every country will be persecuted. Let me leave you with these words from God’s Word, “Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men” (Matthew 5:13). Friends, it’s time to raise our voices for truth and righteousness to be heard around the world and being unafraid to model our new life in Christ or suffer the consequences of being trodden underfoot by men.

Three Great Powers to Overcome the Wiles of the Devil

The lukewarm church and the religious cult are both powerless to stand against the wiles of the devil. Both are missing the power of love, the power of forgiveness and the power of the resurrection – three great powers to overcome the wiles of the devil. Satan and the unclean spirits (or fallen angels) are incapable of overcoming these three great powers made manifest in God’s true children, the faithful remnant. This is good news for the end time saints who have witnessed the influence of Satan to capture so many in our day. Addiction to prescription drugs, both pain killers and psychiatric, have decimated the population leaving most under the control of demonic influence and the power of sin. A lukewarm church has done little in equipping the believers to stand against the wiles of the devil. The religious cult has robbed the believers of their power to stand against the trickery and deception of Satan. Psychiatry and the medical professionals are throwing different labels on people at the speed of light to explain their bizarre and unbelievable behavior. The world, the lukewarm church, and the religious cults are powerless to stand against the wiles of the devil. On the other hand, true believers have that power.

Breastplate of Righteousness

This article continues an eight week series on the armor of God. A very important part of being prepared spiritually for the “End Times” is being dressed in and utilizing the whole armor of God for Satan will be extremely powerful and even more deceptive because he knows that his time is short. The breastplate of righteousness is the next piece of armor to be put on by the Christian soldier. Many Christians suffer defeat on a daily basis because they have some chink in their armor, which allows the enemy to drag them down to what feels like the pit of hell. Most Christians know that they have been saved by grace, and whatever righteousness they have has been given to them through their faith in Jesus Christ. There is no question that this righteousness has been imputed to them, which allows them to stand in the presence of God and His holy angels. However, it is God’s plan to continually grow us from one degree of glory to another to make us into the perfect image of His Son Jesus Christ. This goes well beyond behavior modification to a miraculous transformation making us into a new creation. It is clear from scripture that the “how to” manual for obtaining righteousness is having faith and being obedient to all of His commands. The Bible says, “This is love for God: To obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome” (1 John 5:3). Jesus said, “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls” (Matthew 11:29). It does not take long before the Holy Spirit writes these commands on our heart where we know what is right and what is wrong. This is all a sure defense against the devil who constantly accuses us before the Lord. Continue reading Breastplate of Righteousness

God is Love – A Polemic against Atheists

If God is love then why did He tell the children of Israel, “Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man” (Numbers 31:17). This verse along with many other verses out of the Old and New Testament atheist use to supplant the love of God for their own misguided interpretation. Furthermore, they have concluded that all religions are evil being the cause of numerous wars and atrocities inflicted upon their fellow man. Then atheists typically conclude their argument by stating if God is love then why does He allow all the evil in the world. As we near the end of time atheists have become arrogantly emboldened while most believers remain silent. I often wonder if this silence is caused by fear or the believer’s lack of biblical knowledge. Let’s remember dear children that He who is in us is stronger than he who is in the world. (See I John 4:4) It’s past time to take our stand against the foolishness of this world by wielding the sword of the Spirit with all truth from His anointed Word.
