God’s Children Are Slipping into Darkness (Video)

God’s children are slipping into darkness. Every day the world seems like it’s growing crazier. The News Media, Social Media, and the tabloids are aflame with stories of people completely losing it in public, unfortunately, some of these are professed believers in Christ. For the sake of brevity, we will only look at a few of the most important things that cause God’s children to slip into darkness. These are things that keep me up at night as I weep greatly in the Spirit for God’s precious children.

God’s Children Are Slipping into Darkness

God’s children are slipping into darkness. Every day the world seems like it’s growing crazier. The News Media, Social Media, and the tabloids are aflame with stories of people completely losing it in public, unfortunately, some of these are professed believers in Christ. Some people have garnered the name “Karen” for calling the police when they feel unduly threatened, pointing guns at other people, in a fit of rage screaming and throwing things in public. Every day, people are doing more things that shock our sensibilities. At times it feels like we live in some kind of twilight zone. We have also observed that many people today seem fascinated with the past of others through the publication of books and memoirs but on the other hand, they want to erase history by tearing down all statues and changing the names of some of our forts and institutions. Have COVID-19, the lockdown, face mask requirements, and politicians caused us all to go a bit insane? Has it caused God’s children to slip into darkness, or is it something much more sinister? For the sake of brevity, we will only look at a few of the most important things that cause God’s children to slip into darkness. These are things that keep me up at night as I weep greatly in the Spirit for God’s precious children.

The Bible is clear about what to expect as we near the end. Lying deception will lead the entire world into darkness, which will also cause many of God’s children to also slip into darkness. What brings tears to my eyes is that they don’t even know that they are being led astray through lying deception. If we look at the word “lying” it goes by many different names, such as exaggerating, fibbing, a little white lie, excluding or withholding information, doing it for the sake of others (the end justifies the means), deceit, and deception. No matter what you call it, it’s still a lie and God knows it. It also puts you on a very slippery slope where one lie, always leads to another, severing your relationship with a Holy God and putting you in league with the devil. Jesus said that the devil is the father of lies (See John 8:44). Remember, when Christ said that, He was talking to the religious people of His day. If we take a hard look at these religious leaders of Christ’s day, we will agree, that much of what they taught and stood for appeared to be righteous in the eyes of the people. On the other hand, Jesus saw much deeper into their lives seeing their hypocrisy and their masterful twisting of God’s truth. He saw how their lies were leading God’s people astray allowing them to slip into darkness.

Unfortunately, we are seeing the same thing today, not only in religion but also in politics. In both cases, they have given the people just enough truth to lead them astray and down a very slippery slope into darkness. It’s called lying deception! Here is the big problem with lying deception in our day, it takes our eyes off of God’s promises. If we lose sight of the promises, then we will never become what God wants us to be and we will not be able to stand firm during the tribulation. This puts the onus on us. If we hear a lie, then we must either rebuke it or turn away from it immediately. To share the lie on Social Media or with others in person makes you a partner in the lie allowing you to suffer the same consequences. We have all seen these lies on the internet, YouTube, and Social Media grow exponentially leading more of God’s precious children into Satan’s dark web of deceit. Let me be very clear that the powers of darkness always add some truth to their lies to make them more appealing and convincing. That’s why they’re so deceptive. Any lies no matter how small must lead us to reject the entire premise or statement. Remember, the lie takes your eyes off the promises, which will cause you to slip into darkness.

In another place, it says, “Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight” (Proverbs 12:22). If telling a lie is an abomination to God, which it is, then calling Him a liar is also an abomination. Let that sink in! Everything written in His Word, that we call the Bible, is truth. If God promises to do something, then we must believe it. To doubt God’s Word is the same as calling Him a liar and puts us on a very slippery slope into darkness. Let’s look at three great promises, especially important for our day. The first promise is that Jesus Christ will return for His Church. This is our great hope. Christ promises to come back but only after the great apostasy or falling away and the revealing of the man of lawlessness (See II Thessalonians 2:3). This is important and rather interesting when most biblical scholars agree that the man of lawlessness will not come or be revealed until we are already in the midst of the Great Tribulation (See Revelation 13). Unfortunately, many will give up when things get really bad or when they don’t see Christ coming secretly to rapture the church before the Great Tribulation. Many will fall away and slip into darkness. Although most Christians are on solid ground when it comes to the obvious sins (for example: killing the unborn child and telling little boys that it’s ok to be a little girl or accepting that it’s ok to burn for the same-sex) they fall woefully short when it comes to believing all the promises. And to do so, causes you to slip into darkness.

Again, the major problem is the deceptive lies; lies that take your eyes off the promise! Allow me to digress a bit. When we answer God’s call by believing in the Gospel, we almost immediately feel great as the Spirit of the living God comes and dwells in our hearts. We sense an urgent need to stop doing the many things that we considered bad and then learn how to act by following the example we see in other Christians. However, it typically stops there for most, because they don’t believe the promises, then they start to slip, a little bit here and a little bit there. Those around you may give you great encouragement telling you to try a little harder by going to more church activities or visit the counselors who are trained to help, to keep you from slipping further into the darkness. Here’s the problem. They may have studied the promises and even memorized them, but they never really believed them and without true belief, they will slip back into the darkness with all the same old problems. These promises need more, they need faith and trust that God will deliver on His promises. As we look at the next two promises you judge for yourself if you really believe them.

The next promise 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). These are true words! No matter what we suffered in the past, no matter how many bad things we have done, no matter how much our past life haunts us, all that will pass away. God promises to make us into a brand-new person, a new creation. Now, let’s look at the next promise. This promise 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). We must trust God to give us everything needed for transformation, to become everything that He wants us to be. As we read and study His Word the indwelling Spirit is with us every step of the way showing us how to put off the old life and how to put on the new life in Christ. If we truly believe the promise, then every day we will look for this transformation to take place in our lives (See II Corinthians 3:18). The deceptive lie is that God cannot fulfill His promises in your lives, so you need help from the professionals of psychiatry. If you don’t believe the promises and aren’t growing in the Lord, chances are you are slipping back into darkness. If you read carefully II Peter 1:4, you will understand the great value of believing in and living out God’s precious promises. I am weeping for God’s children as we enter the Great Tribulation and the great apostasy, especially as I witness many of His children slipping into darkness.

Daniels Blog – Celebrating 22 Years of Online Ministry

After many years in the pastoral ministry that required personal one on one discipleship, door to door evangelism, preaching, teaching, and counseling, it was a tremendous change to minister to a faceless audience in an online ministry, which took time to develop long-distance relationships. Back in 1998, the worldwide web was still in its infancy, and building a website was not the easiest task. I still have fond memories of my wife and I visiting an internet provider owned and operated by my oldest son, Jonathan. He had his full-time programmer1998 Website help me build my first website from scratch with no pre-made templates or WordPress. But how does one have a presence on the worldwide web? Google was a big help in those early days when they were still relatively new. We grew together on how to make one’s website easily searchable for as many people as possible, trying one promotional idea after another. In the beginning, our online ministry mainly consisted of writing blog articles, which was an easy task for I had spent many years writing out all of my weekly sermons as a fulltime pastor. Many of these old sermons found their way into my new website with an eagerness to reach the world for Christ.

Next came our online bookstore featuring all of my books, Final Warning, Stand Firm, Revelation Truth, and Guiding Principles for Biblical Counseling. Although I was selling books in the bookstores, and online through Google and Amazon, it was a thrill to offer my books directly to God’s children allowing me to write personal messages to those making purchases. Then, some brave people came up with an idea of recording their message and making it into a Podcast, and with the help of some other websites and organizations, this idea soon became a reality. My first venture was posting a weekly Podcast called “Final Warning” with Apple’s iTunes. In time we were able to play these Podcasts directly from our website using an mp3 format. These were exciting times, letting our voices be carried around the world proclaiming the message of Jesus Christ. It was not long before the weekly Podcast was not so popular with the introduction of online videos through Google’s YouTube Videos. So, we started making videos for our new channel, Revelation Truth, from our current articles directed toward what we would later refer to as the faithful remnant. Of course, these videos could also, in time, be viewed directly from our website. This new ministry of making videos became very popular with our online followers.

While in the pastoral ministry, I always had the heart to help hurting people by way of Biblical counseling, which opened another new avenue of allowing people to write in through the website contact form to receive needed counseling. In time this new venture led us to start another website to help those who struggle daily with emotional and psychological problems, along with fierce attacks from the enemy. Many of these precious believers did not have a clear understanding of God’s promise to make them into a brand-new creation in Christ, where old things truly pass away. We prayed and counseled for all those who came our way. Let me encourage you to take a moment and visit our other website: “CAPA-Christians Against Psychiatric Abuse” at https://www.allcapa.org This ministry of personally praying and counseling our website visitors eventually led me to write out all of my daily prayers and post them on both websites, which I have done for the past three years. The Daily Devotion has been such a tremendous blessing to us as we lead God’s beloved children in prayer strengthening them to stand firm while they continue to grow up in Christ.

With the help of some very talented and gifted vocalists, we started another channel at YouTube called Tribulation Radio, where we added music, prayers, and commentaries to our messages developing wonderfully inspired videos to the glory of God, which also appear on our website. To give God’s children news from a godly perspective we currently podcast a News Brief and a relevant prayer as God directs. We also podcast reading of the entire book of Revelation in a beautiful theatrical presentation for our online visitors. Well, it was not long before we decided to stream our own internet Radio 24/7, which of course, we called, Tribulation Radio, direct from our website. TribulationTribulation Radio Radio is meant to encourage the faithful remnant living in the Last Days by allowing them to listen to encouraging Christian Music, and relevant messages to help them to stand firm in a turbulent world. Don’t miss our Old Time Gospel Hour and Music for Prayer and Meditation. Yes, these have been some very exciting times working with many different people from around the world making this truly a worldwide ministry. Come and discover all the things we offer to help God’s elect children become all that He wants them to be. This has been a wonderful journey with many beloved saints helping us make Daniels Blog what it is today. We have been “Proclaiming Revelation Truth Since 1998.” So, please help us to celebrate our 22 years of our online ministry, this month. God bless you all.

Only God Can Lift the Veil (Video)

Only God can lift the veil on what’s really happening in the world. The President can’t do it. The News Services can’t do it. Preachers and prophets can’t do it, only God can lift the veil on what’s really happening in the world. We are not coming before you with what we think we know; we are only coming before you with clean hands and a pure heart. We are waiting patiently for God to speak and tell us what’s really happening in the world.

Only God Can Lift the Veil

Only God can lift the veil on what’s really happening in the world. The President can’t do it. The News Services can’t do it. Preachers and prophets can’t do it, only God can lift the veil on what’s really happening in the world. We are not coming before you with what we think we know; we are only coming before you with clean hands and a pure heart. We are waiting patiently for God to speak and tell us what’s really happening in the world. Thus, says the LORD, “Why do you act as if something strange is coming upon you? Have I not told you beforehand that all this would come upon you during the Great Tribulation? Satan is now using it to his advantage to frighten you and bring you into further bondage.” Yes, the Lord did tell us, for the Bible says, “… and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places” (Matthew24:7b). We will discover together how Satan and the Antichrist will use these plagues to their advantage to frighten you and bring you into bondage. They will not allow this pandemic to go to waste. We must be careful and not chase after conspiracy theories, fake news, and false prophecies that will blind us to the truth. On the other hand, we must stay grounded in only what God has taught us through Holy Scripture. We must allow God to remove the veil. Continue reading Only God Can Lift the Veil
