His Woe is Coming Quickly! (Video)

Woe, woe, woe is a constant refrain that we hear in the last book of the Bible.

His Woe is Coming Quickly!

Woe, woe, woe is a constant refrain that we hear in the last book of the Bible. When we read it, we think of God saying, “this is it!” Or saying, “this is the last straw for you have just passed over the proverbial red line.” This happened once before in biblical history when God raised His prophets of old to speak to the nation of Israel. God had warned His children for years that they had not kept His commandments, that they had followed after the disgusting immorality of their age. They had so integrated the world around them into their religious traditions and civic life, that they could no longer see their unrighteousness as filthy rags. Clearly, their sin had blinded them to their true condition before a Holy God. The Bible says, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter” (Isaiah 5:20)! They had become so blind that they convinced themselves that they were correct in their beliefs. They were so convinced that their bad behavior was good, even in the eyes of God, that they would come out from among those who thought otherwise and fight against them with harsh words. They were not far from stoning the prophets.

Ancient Israel is not much unlike the Western World and especially the United States. When we condone legalized abortion, homosexuality, the transgender, and every other perverted lifestyle then we are not unlike Ancient Israel that called bad, good. When we condone the psychobabble being taught in our churches and schools along with the free flow of psychiatric drugs that’s causing untold problems or the legalization of marijuana then we are not unlike Ancient Israel that called darkness, light. When we condone the teaching of other world religions, humanistic philosophies, myths, and demonic incantations in the public square then we are not unlike Ancient Israel that called bitter, sweet. Moreover, this unholy exchange has required Christians to undergo psychological testing for employment, psychological counseling if they trespass one of their civil laws, and even required to take certain psychological drugs if deemed necessary by the doctors and enforced by the judges. This unholy exchange has emptied our churches and created a whole new atheistic subculture of people trusting in the works of their own hands and denying the existence of God. This unholy exchange has opened Pandora’s box filled with every familiar spirit of the New Age seduction. We are not too unlike Ancient Israel.

So, what did God do with the nation of Israel? He sent them into captivity. He allowed the kings from the East, namely Babylon, along the Euphrates River in present-day Iraq, to tear down their walls, overcome their strong military, and carry off their survivors into a long and harsh captivity. This was the outcome of the woe spoken by the prophets and specifically the prophet Isaiah. Throughout biblical history, God has used other pagan nations to chastise His people for their unholy exchange. If we look at the second woe in the book of Revelation, this has not changed. God can and does use other nations to chastise His people when they stray from Him or cross the proverbial red line. Read carefully the book of Revelation concerning the second woe (See Revelation 9:12-21, and my book “Final Warning,” that goes into greater detail). Yes, I believe there is that proverbial red line and we as a nation, the United States of America, have passed it. What’s left is the woe, the righteous judgment of God to turn His people back to the light and out of the darkness. I don’t believe that I am alone to see the “handwriting on the wall.” Thanks to our interference in the Middle East for many years, we may now have most countries in the area hating us worse than they hate one another.

We may have cleaned out ISIS, the radical element of Islam but we have left intact a coalition of nations now strategizing how to expel all foreign troops from their lands. How far this collaboration will go in uniting against what they see as the “great Satan” (the United States of America) is not yet known. We do know, however, that Iran has projected a tremendous influence on many of the countries and groups of people in the region spreading their undying hatred for the West and specifically the United States. We should not underestimate the hatred they have for America that’s gone on for more than forty years, whom they see as both imperialistic and greedy. Make no mistake, thousands upon thousands have already been killed by the Muslim hordes from the East since its conception. If this hatred reaches further into our homeland as did the attacks of 911, then I pray that we as a nation will repent of our gross immorality and turn back to God before we experience the full extent of the third woe, which will be the unveiling of the Antichrist with all of his power to subject everyone to him. This subjection will begin with increased surveillance to seek out the terrorist amongst us. It seems like the handwriting is already on the proverbial wall. It’s just a matter of time if this country does not sincerely repent from their many years of unrighteousness.

Dear Christian, we cannot put our trust in our leader to protect us from God’s woe! Nor can we put our trust in the previous administration that attempted to buy them off. We may happily enjoy all that our current leader is doing to protect us, from building walls to increasing the military, even a space force, to new weapons, and his powerful rhetoric spoken against our enemies. We can rally around him by supporting him with our gifts and time, but nothing will stop the hand of God to render His righteous judgment upon a lawless nation. In comparison to the United States and our allies, Iran and its axis of evil seem small and insignificant. However, we as a nation would not be prepared to witness the daily terrorist attacks on our homeland. They may claim that it will only be military installations, but that could change very quickly. Nothing will stay the hand of God but true unconditional repentance. We must cleanse our churches of psychology and only teach God’s truth. We must outlaw abortion and help mothers to raise their children. We must outlaw all forms of greed and stop robbing the poor. We must outlaw homosexuality and all other forms of sexual perversion and teach godly counsel in building God-honoring relationships. We must outlaw all movies, music, and books that teach and condone lawlessness. We must turn back to the only true God while there is still time. His woe is coming quickly, lest we repent!

As we have seen, God can and does use other nations, especially pagan nations, to judge His people. It has historical and biblical precedents. Although the Middle East is primarily Muslim, which we would consider pagan, there are thousands upon thousands of Christians, our brothers and sisters, spread throughout the region. Although we need to repent and stand firm against any traditions or laws that would weaken our faith or trust in God alone, we must also pray for our brothers and sisters in every country, including the Middle East, to stand firm against their, often pagan or tyrannical, leadership by also maintaining their faith in God alone.  If we as believers in Christ truly repent, we will not only be setting an example for our brothers and sisters in the Middle East and around the world, we may also stay the hand of God. If we don’t repent, then His woe is coming quickly upon this nation! God help us!

How to Overcome Suffering Victoriously

How can we overcome great suffering in this world victoriously? How can we stand firm in a world that’s shaking violently? As the entire world has its eyes transfixed on the possibility of nuclear war, the fear of global warming, and the destruction of democracies due to inherent corruption, they are missing the sudden rise in major earthquakes around the world. They are missing the destabilization of world governments, the rise of disenfranchised people that are rioting in the streets, and the crumbling foundations of all religions, especially Christianity. They are missing the tactics of Satan to destroy God’s children by stripping them of their eternal hope, heighten their fear of the unknown, and to embrace their own selfish interests. In this article, we will learn how to regain our eternal hope, dispel all fear, and embrace the power of living for others and not for self. To do so my friend will not only help you stand firm in the coming days, but it will allow you to fellowship in the suffering of Christ and experience the power of His resurrection.

Let’s begin with an overarching premise, that when our eyes are turned onto ourselves then all of our sufferings are amplified. On the other hand, when we look at the life of Jesus Christ, we see something radically different. His entire life was lived serving others. Some of His most basic needs were ignored for the sake of His ministry to others. His ministry to others in selfless service was always paramount. When He was interrupted by His own dear mother and brothers, He chose to continue serving others putting His followers on the same level as His own biological family (See Matthew 12:46-50). Everything our Lord did it was for others, to fulfill His mission. The Bible says He was tired from a long journey (See John 4:1-45), no doubt hungry and thirsty as well, but instead of following His disciple to town to get food, He stayed behind sitting on the well waiting to encounter the woman who was coming to draw water; a woman heaped in sin and past failures, a woman who needed what He was prepared to give her, a new life free from the agony of past failures and deep heartbreaks. This was His food and strength to do the Father’s will by proclaiming the truth and serving others. This was the suffering that the Apostle Paul wanted to fellowship in, to draw strength from helping others.

This is the key that would turn the world upside down. No longer would humanity just be selfishly concerned about their own welfare, but now everyone would be concerned about helping, giving, serving, and loving others. In every case He let nothing deter Him from His ministry to others thereby setting it forth as an example for those who would follow Him and do likewise (See Luke 9:57-62). In every case, our Lord gave us an example of living solely for others and not for self. You can notice an air of disappointment from Jesus when after three years His disciples still could not understand the importance of His mission in serving others. They could not fathom the amount of pain that He was suffering as He drew ever closer to the Cross knowing full well all that He would endure. He would not be suffering for just a few hundred people, but His suffering would be for all the people in the world for all of time. To make the ultimate sacrifice, to give His life as a ransom for all of humanity to fulfill the will of His Father in heaven. This is the first step in learning how to become victorious over suffering; to be so focused on serving others that we don’t allow our suffering to overcome us. This is the will of the Father.

The Apostle Paul clearly understood this when he said that he wanted to know the power of the resurrection and the fellowship of His suffering (see Philippians 3:10). Even when I look from afar, I cannot imagine suffering as much as Jesus Christ. Perhaps a good place to start for most Westerners, who have not had to deal with excessive physical persecution is the constant bombardment of very mean-spirited people and demeaning rhetorical abuse that Jesus Christ needed to endure from the religious elite. Not to mention the fact that He was also accused of being in league with the devil and freely practiced magical arts to garner His following. That alone would send most of us into full-blown attack mode or full unfettered retreat leaving one’s followers to be ravaged by the Satanic inspired religious elite. And if all this were not enough, the physical and psychological persecution was soon to come from beating him with a glass and rock-laden whip that would rip the skin from His back to giving Him a crown of thorns and a kingly robe to openly mock Him before others. Remember what the Apostle Paul said that he wanted to know the power of the resurrection and the fellowship of His suffering. Let me say, when we do, we will learn to overcome our suffering victoriously.

The second step in dispelling fear and overcoming our pain victoriously is to know the power of the resurrection. This must be an intimate knowledge of the resurrection through faith, believing that Jesus Christ did arise from the grave and is now seated in Heaven with His Father. It is the intimate knowledge of being caught up to the spiritual realm through the indwelling Spirit, to experience a foretaste of things to come. When we do, it will take our minds and emotions away from our present suffering to the promise of the resurrection and eternal life. This is exactly what we see in Jesus Christ. He had just endured the most excruciating pain of having large rusty nails driven through His hands and feet and then hung on a Cross to die an agonizing death. What did He say? He told John to watch after His mother as his own (See John 19:26-27). He forgave His tormentors for what they had done to Him (See Luke 23:34) and then He told the thief on the cross who believed in Him, that they would both be in paradise today (See Luke 23:43). When we focus our mind on the promise of the resurrection and loving service to others then we will overcome all pain victoriously. That is the power of the resurrection.

Humanity has once again fallen into the pit of selfishness. There is no wonder why there is so much pain in the world. So many drugs to dull the senses. So many counselors attempting to pick up the broken pieces. Let me be very clear. To know the power of the resurrection and to experience the fellowship of His suffering will not diminish the pain but it will give us strength and power to see it through to the end. I am afraid we live in a time when Christians are not taught how to go through the pain and suffering victoriously. Rather they are being taught to look for the big escape. They are taught that when things start to get really bad then we will all escape in the sky in the secret rapture. Oh, we will have the rapture, but it will not be secret, for every eye shall see. (See Revelation 1:7). It will be in the twinkling of an eye at the end of the age, for that is our true hope. Things are already bad and only getting worse, so it’s time to learn how to stand firm. It’s time to put others first in loving service. It is time to stay focused on their needs and stop focusing on our own selfish desires. It’s time to know the power of the resurrection by embracing its eternal hope. Let us say with the Apostle Paul, “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings being made conformable unto his death” (Philippians 3:10). Amen.

Will Christianity be Classified as a Mental Illness? (Video)

Before we attempt to answer the question, “Will Christianity be classified as a mental illness,” it’s important to understand that not everyone who calls upon the Name of Christ is cut from the same cloth or holds to the same doctrine. As classic Christianity drifts to the left of center it looks and acts more like the world of fallen humanity every day. After watching the video on my secure website, please share with others.
