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 back 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. Continue reading Trump May be the Catalyst to Usher in the Antichrist
Today’s 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 shield of faith is the next piece of armor to be put on by the Christian soldier. As the Christian soldier goes deep into enemy territory to rescue the perishing the devil will hurl a volley of flaming arrows to discourage you in your pursuit. Upon receiving one of his arrows, you may experience strong emotions of fear, emptiness, aloneness, and doubt that comes in an instant when you least expect it, and then your spirit cries out in anguish begging for someone to listen to your plight. These arrows are all the more destructive in power. They have the ability to pierce and seriously wound the soldier. When the piercing arrows of depression, anger, and fear are filling the air, we must learn to take refuge behind the shield of faith (see Proverbs 30:5). As we come together as believers, we can link our faith-shields to ward off the devil’s darts. Continue reading The Shield of Faith
Letter Number Two: Start Influencing the World. When we elect a president of the United States of America that has said publicly that no one religion has a corner on the truth and has shown this by his inclusion of the teachings from other world religions in his speeches then we have stopped influencing the world. Or when we allow the Dalai Lama to give the opening prayer at the U.S. Senate then we have stopped influencing the world. Or when most churches have now integrated the teachings of psychology into their biblical counseling then we have stopped influencing the world. Or when we have allowed our children to attend public schools that no longer teach creationism, stripped their walls of the Ten Commandments, and has kept our children from praying or sharing Christ publicly then we have stopped influencing the world. Tragically the world is now influencing the church. Jesus Christ summed it up by saying, ‘You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men” (Matthew 5:13) Our influence, our testimony is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men! Why, because we have lost our saltiness.
I believe that most of us have no idea what it feels like to be treated like a criminal. Most of us would not want to even imagine it, but we must seriously think about it. Don’t think for a minute that Christian persecution is anything different than … Continue reading Treated Like a Criminal
