The Dawning of a New Day

There is an incredible hope, to cut out the evil, and change the minds of mankind. God since the fall of humanity has been changing minds and hearts, which will cut out the evil one step at a time. Now, that the world is governed totally by self-righteous men they are attempting to cut out only the unaccepted evil and to change the minds of humanity. This has been a huge failure on the part of humanity, which has led to one war after another. Many of the wars, contrary to how they are reported, have turned into humanitarian disasters. Therefore, the coming Antichrist, sooner than you think, will be much more aggressive in cutting out the unacceptable evil while forcibly changing minds and hearts to adhere to his new global mandate. Oh yes, as Jesus Christ said, there will still be wars and rumors of wars, but incredibly more brutal, even to the point of genocide causing the entire world to erupt in hysteria (Matthew 24:6-13). What mainly concerns us in this article is how will Antichrist actually change hearts and minds bringing forth what will be perceived as the dawning of a new day. Although Satan and the powers of darkness have been working on accomplishing this for thousands of years, it pales in comparison to what Antichrist has planned for the very near future.

For the plans of Antichrist to work, it is essential to cut out all the evil that’s not accepted by the liberal establishment. What makes this even more appalling is it goes well beyond unacceptable bad behavior to include one’s beliefs. In essence, the establishment is saying your beliefs are destroying humanity and they must be eliminated. This will start by outlawing all public displays of your religious beliefs or any beliefs that don’t align with the establishment. Make no mistake this is already happening in public buildings, schools, and even public areas which has changed a whole generation of young people. Whatever gains recently made to demonstrate our faith in public buildings, unfortunately, will only be short-lived. The liberal knives are already being sharpened. People can have their religion, but it must be hidden from public view. This is all part of the plan to grow up an entire generation without the mindset of religious thought. All the world religions tend to go down much easier than the Muslim religion. If you want proof, then tell me that your children and grandchildren living in the West are faithfully following the doctrines of your professed religion. On the other hand, many of the Muslim countries have passed on their beliefs to their immediate and extended families with much greater success than the West. The Muslim religion will not go down so easily but will fight back with the viciousness of terrorism on a global scale.

Although with the coming Antichrist this will eventually change, but it will suffer first from the second woe in the book of Revelation, which I have written about previously (Revelation 9:12-21). ). See my article; “The Second Woe – The Muslim Invasion.” The second woe has been going on since the sixth century. It will finally come to a head when all the Middle Eastern nations join forces to fight against the West. The Eastern nations will not succumb easily, but they will eventually be defeated by the coming Antichrist. All public display of religious beliefs will be forbidden and to act otherwise will end in a death sentence. We have been seeing a hint of this in China controlling the church and requiring that they integrate their dogma into their teachings. Although this resistance of the Eastern nations may lead to World War III, it will not stop the Antichrist from fulfilling his mission of changing the hearts and minds of all humanity including the Eastern nations. At this point, the world as we currently know it is sick to death of wars and the many terrorist organizations. They are sick to death of all the religions forcing their will upon the people. Everyone will believe in their hearts and minds that they can change the world if they can eliminate the divisive and opinionated beliefs of religious people. They believe if all the religious expressions are banned and outlawed, then the world can have a lasting peace among the nations. They look forward to the dawning of a new day.

I don’t know how long this process will take, but I am assured that it will take place according to God’s prophecy. When this happens, the fallen world will think it is the dawning of a new day. The world as we know it will no longer be the same. The world will witness the elimination of all the terrorists causing death and destruction on a global scale. It will fix the broken United Nations by bringing all the nations into lockstep with one another. It will finally stop all the wars that are ravaging the world. They envision that humanity will overcome all the divisions but at the same time will allow every form of perversion and the outrageous lies of the devil to exist. It will be the dawning of a new day for the global elites and the coming Antichrist. They believe that they can eradicate, hunger and disease. They believe that they also have the power to stop global warming and make planet Earth a living paradise. Humanity will be ripe for a new world leader even if he appears to be a bit liberal and heavy-handed. Although they don’t know it, they are ready for the Antichrist to establish his order of things. They are ready for advanced technology to lend a hand to set things straight by introducing Artificial General Intelligence into the affairs of humanity. The world is ready for the dawning of a new day.

This will be something far worse for those who are committed to their God and their religious doctrines. The faithful remnant will hold to the doctrines of their faith and continue the transformation process as discussed in my previous article, “What is God’s Purpose for Your Life”. Although the faithful remnant will be small in numbers and spread across the entire world, they will stand firm in their faith and refuse to show allegiance to the Antichrist even if they must face persecution. As believers in Jesus Christ, I hope and pray that we will be ready for this new day that will sweep the whole world like a horrific storm. We have all witnessed the many plagues and woes in the book of Revelation, if we had eyes to see. If we are willing to admit it, we have never seen the world so crazy and mixed up spouting new perversions at an alarming rate. It will be essential that we learn how to stay pure in an impure world. Staying pure in an impure world has been a question that has occupied my mind for as long as I can remember. Yet, every day the struggle grows ever more difficult. How can we be in the world and not of the world should occupy the thoughts of every believer in Christ. This is even more difficult for those who believe that they should be on the proverbial wall, following world events, and separating truth from the enormous amount of lying propaganda, so that God’s children can be properly warned.

So, how can we remain pure in an impure world and continue our witness when it will be outlawed to demonstrate any expression of our religion? This is a question that must be answered now because the world is already aggressively attempting to change our minds clandestinely at the speed of light. Yes, the minds of fallen humanity are being changed while most don’t even realize it. Christianity has lost its meaning. It no longer means transformation. Christianity along with every other major religion is seen as a threat to everything that fallen humanity envisions in a new world. God gave us great truth in the Bible that would have saved us from this day, but we failed to listen to it and obey (Revelation 18:4-5). We thought we could live among the pagan and follow his ways without it affecting our way of thinking, but we were wrong. The minds of our children and grandchildren have been changed. They no longer trust in God to solve all their problems, including all their emotional and psychological problems, but they trust in the works of their own hands (II Peter 1:3-4). They no longer trust God to work all things together for good for those who love God (Romans 8:28). Our minds will keep being changed to the point where all forms of religion will no longer seem valid. I write this article with deep pain in my heart knowing that our way is quickly passing away. This is the great falling away (II Thessalonians 2:3). I will not rejoice in the so-called dawning of a new day. I will weep greatly that God’s children have lost their way.

The Last Crusade – Islam or Christianity

The three great religions believe in the God of Abraham and His selection of the Jewish people to make His name known among the world. The divergence of their faiths depends exclusively upon the messenger, messengers, or lack of a messenger or more correctly stated the true Messiah. When Jesus Christ proclaimed Himself as the true messenger sent by God to be both Messiah and the Son of God, the Jews almost immediately rejected His claims and refused His message. However, His disciples were able to see, really see the compassionate, loving heart of God. For the first time they saw God as a Father of mercy who deeply cares for His children by promising them a new life through His beloved Son. No longer would humanity be held in the bondage of sin and continuous temptation of the Devil. What a tremendous joy to follow Christ and experience a peace that defies understanding. What a tremendous change from the Old Covenant where people were enslaved to the letter of the law compounded by the thousands of additional restrictions placed upon them by their religious leaders.

Middle East Turmoil – A Biblical Perspective

What’s happening in the Middle East? As countries one by one lose their authoritative rulers and new voices trumpet their causes on the global stage the world shutters. Some people rejoice over the promise of freedom, while others seek answers from the ancient text. What’s happening in the Middle East? For over two thousand years the West has feared those in the East. Ancient Rome, the most powerful empire in the world, feared the Parthian warriors whose expert cavalry bowmen had conquered the entire territory from the Euphrates to the Indus. During the Holy Roman Empire the Church and its people also feared the encroachment of Islam into its territories which was countered with the Crusades. There have been many skirmishes between East and West over the years with the culmination of terrorists from the East relentlessly attacking the West.

But now we see something new, instead of attacking the West the people are attacking their own leaders seeking to throw off their old restraints and find a new path. What is really happening in the Middle East? As stated in my blog last week some believe that there will be a new spiritual leader, the Mahdi that will come in the last days to unite all the Muslim nations and dominate the world. There is a call from some to institute Sharia Law not only in the East, but also in the West. Quite clearly they see Islam as the only true religion that can save humanity from certain calamity as it sinks further into the pit of moral degeneration. There is a real fear that as each country’s dictator is overthrown it creates a void to be filled by radical Islam. And it’s this radical element that longs for their spiritual leader to bring all Muslims together in a Holy war against the West.

From a biblical perspective God deals with the entire world and that includes the Muslims. It is written in our sacred text, the Holy Bible, that in the last days when the revived Roman Empire and its political leader is exercising his authority over the entire world, that God’s angel will “pour out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water is dried up to prepare the way for the kings of the East.” (Rev. 16:12) Why would God allow this to happen? Are not most of His people living in the West? Before we are too critical of God let’s be clear that the Bible does not say that the kings from the East will defeat the West, nor does it say that West under the leadership of the Antichrist will defeat the kings from the East. What is clear, however, is that he brings them both to the valley of decision – which is also referred to as Armageddon. It is here where the great battle takes place between God and all of fallen humanity. It is very instructive that prior to God destroying all of fallen humanity in this final battle, God issues a final warning to His people. “Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed.” (Rev. 16:15)

So here is the point friends, we do not need to fear what is happening in the Middle East, but we do need to fear God who is sitting on His Throne. As the biblical Antichrist begins to exercise his power in the West this country will not become more righteous. On the contrary those in the West will be deceived into thinking that they can build the perfect world without God. They will be deceived into thinking that they can develop their own self righteousness to save the world and defeat their enemies (specifically the hordes from the East). In fact this deception will deepen where the Antichrist will promise to protect Israel, and then break his covenant with her at the last moment. Retrospectively, as the Antichrist tightened his grip on the entire world through miracles signs and wonders the deception will grow. But the truth is man must die to self and trust in God alone for His imputed righteousness. Those who awake to this truth and put on the righteousness of God will “not go naked and be shamefully exposed” at Christ’s magnificent return to earth. Friends, we need to be more concerned about our being ready for the coming of Christ rather than the turmoil in the Middle East.
