The Coming Apocalypse and Lukewarm Christianity

I have been preaching and teaching on the coming Apocalypse for many years, yet there is one thing, more than anything else, that will start the final countdown. This one thing is the alarming growth of lukewarm Christianity throughout the entire world. One might point to the dark ages in church history and claim that must have been the worst era of lukewarm Christianity. I would object. Although this particular era in history did produce rank immorality, most people in Christendom held to a quasi-religion established by the Catholic Church. This drove most believers to obtain a certain level of righteousness, if not for the sake of conscience, then out of stark fear of the unknown or the fires of eternal damnation. Even after the Reformation when many believers escaped the tyranny of the Catholic Church, most were held steadfast by the printing of the Bible that in time became available for the common man. However, it was after the great missionary effort, that took God’s Word around the globe, where believers in Christ began to drift. This drift toward lukewarm Christianity was caused primarily by the new world philosophies, the acceptance of psychiatry, and the growth of secularism. This drift continued unabated for two hundred years to the modern era which has produced lukewarm Christianity, in the classic sense, on a much grander scale encompassing most believers. We will examine this significant growth of lukewarm Christianity in our time and specifically its relationship with the coming apocalypse.

The first characteristic of lukewarm Christianity is that they simply don’t understand their true condition as it specifically relates to their sanctification. They are completely void of true transformation in Christ. Perhaps the best way to describe this contemporary believer is to visualize an astute young man, clean-cut, and touting his many college degrees. Pride is his hallmark, which can very well fit the description of most believers in today’s world, even if they can only brag of a high school education. Contrary to the legitimate education they still proudly boast that they have done their research on the internet, social media, news media, the many philosophers and teachers in the world along with their own life experiences or the school of hard knocks, to fill up the binder under their left arm. Here is the problem. It’s what he has under his other arm that makes him a lukewarm Christian. This other arm, or the right arm, which will be explained more in detail later is the religious binder. This binder is full of those wonderful little teachings that he proudly accepts, as long as they fit neatly into the teachings of his other binder. Because of the binder he proudly holds under his other arm he has rejected a lot of the teachings and core values of the religious binder putting him in a very peculiar situation. He is not sold out to Christ nor is he sold out to the philosophers and secular teachers of this age. He is simply sold out to his self. He trusts in God for certain things, he trusts in the world for certain things, and he trusts in his self for the rest. He has masterfully integrated the world’s teachings into the teachings of Christ along with his own. He is what Christ considers a lukewarm Christian.

This lukewarm Christian is neither hot, nor is he cold. With a folder under each arm, one secular and the other religious, he has become a person in need of nothing, for he says to himself that he has the best of both worlds. If he has an emotional or psychological problem, he can either trust in God, or if that doesn’t work for him, then he can trust in psychology and the professionals of this age. He has the best of both worlds, so he thinks. If he has a problem with his drinking or with drugs or any other number of behavioral problems, he doesn’t need to trust in God to help him change because the world has come up with many self-help books and professionals to supposedly help him to change, so he thinks. The list goes on and on running back and forth between the world and organized religion paying respective lip service to each and hoping that eventually he will be helped to live a wonderful life. Christ is extremely honest with this person when He says, “I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked” (Revelation 3:16b-17). Christ put His finger directly on their problem. They truly misunderstood their true condition. They were not being transformed in Christ to experience the bountiful life that He had promised. They were being deceived by the world and the enemy.

So, what is the counsel of Christ? We are counseled to come only to Christ to get everything we need for this new life in Christ (See Revelation 3:18). He was saying, in essence, to throw the other binder away it will not help you to live a sanctified life. It will not help you to be transformed in Christ. It will not help you with any of your problems. He is saying that the world has bewitched you causing you to straddle the fence by putting your trust in the world and putting your trust in God. You simply cannot mix the cold water from the world with the hot water from Christ and not expect to receive anything but lukewarm water. Christ is extending His invitation one last time to fallen humanity and the lukewarm Christian, by saying, “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come into him, and he will sup with him, and he will be with me” (Revelation 3:20). If you refuse His invitation, then you will soon be left alone to face the coming Apocalypse by yourself. I cannot begin to emphasize how tragic that will be. You think it is bad now, just wait. Right now, we are only seeing the countdown to the Apocalypse that’s so extremely close. How do I know that? It is because we see that most Christians today are lukewarm. This is the great falling away spoken of by the Apostle Paul (see II Thessalonians 2:1-3).

Lukewarm Christianity, which is the great falling away, and the Apocalypse are intrinsically tied together. How do you know that? It’s quite simple, as man becomes more depraved and the lukewarm Christian grows divided in his trust, then the wrath of God will be poured out proportionally on an unrepentant world. As lukewarm Christianity spreads around the world, the more aggressively we will see God’s wrath unleashed from heaven. Do you think God is blind and can’t see what is going on in the world? He sees everything. He sees into every house, behind every closed door, and in every dark ally. He sees the marching in the streets by the homosexuals. He sees so-called Christians supporting that depravity. He sees innocent children being led astray into every manner of sin. He sees it all, and the more He sees the more we will see the outpouring of His wrath in the way of heatwaves, smog-filled cities that are killing thousands, the pollution in our oceans and waterways killing all the sea life. We see His wrath in the continued flooding in our cities and the increase in the number of destructive earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanoes. We cannot and must not blame all this on global warming. We must properly place the blame where it belongs on an unrepentant people. We see clearly that God’s wrath is letting go of fallen humanity to experience the consequences of their sins (See Romans 1:18-32). One doesn’t have to look very far to see the consequences of people’s sins wreaking havoc on our society. As I am writing this, I am reading about another mass shooting, this one in El Paso, TX,  by a very immoral person. It’s not the guns, as some foolish legislators insist, rather it is a society that has turned away from God and is now reaping the consequences of her sins. If we don’t repent quickly then we will see planet earth on a collision course with its destiny. We have been warned!

Are You Following a Blind Guide? (Video)

For the first time in world history, there is a multitude of blind guides in every segment of secular society and religious life promising to guide you into an enlightened truth. With all these guides in our world today we are forced to ask the question, “Which one has eyesight to see the whole truth?” After watching the video my secure website, please share with others.

Are You Following a Blind Guide?

For the first time in world history, there is a multitude of blind guides in every segment of secular society and religious life promising to guide you into an enlightened truth. With all these guides in our world today we are forced to ask the question, “Which one has eyesight to see the whole truth?” To be partially blind to the truth, or mixing truth with a lie, still makes you a blind guide leading your followers into the pit of inevitable consequences of following a lie. A true word from Jesus Christ is not to let these blind guides overcome you or cause you anxiety (See Matthew 15:14). With God’s help, we can confront all these lies from every source in both society and religious life as they are brought before us through listening or reading. This is possible my dear friends, if we truly hide God’s Word in our hearts and learn how to listen to the indwelling Spirit. When we do this, we will be able to expose and confront every lie. We will also be able to free those who have been taken captive to follow the lies of the enemy.

Of course, if we don’t do anything to confront the lies, then things will only go from bad to worse in this country and around the world. For those who have eyes to see, we have already seen God’s wrath being poured out on fallen humanity for some time now. We have seen reoccurring epidemics and we will continue to see them get even more deadly and widespread. We have already seen great forest fires that have wiped out entire towns and with the heat index on the rise, due to the consequences of man’s sins, then even greater conflagrations are on the horizon engulfing larger cities in monstrous flames of the roaring fire. We have seen smaller earthquakes traumatize entire communities, it won’t be too long before we see larger and more devastating earthquakes paralyze great sections of our country bringing both death and massive destruction. We could go on, but the point is clear until God’s beloved children rise up to confront the blind guides with the whole truth then things will only get worse. Moreover, things will get worse contrary to who’s the president or whatever new laws and global agreements are passed.

Have you hidden God’s truth in your heart, so that you can expose and confront the lies of the world? Let’s see if that’s so. Most lies from the entertainment industry are carefully knit together as subtle lies in every movie they produce. They almost never miss an opportunity to push the lie of evolution that removes God as the Creator. Evolution destroys the fact that everything was created perfect in the beginning (See Genesis 1:31). Friends, man is not getting better, he’s getting worse. The decline in actual intelligence and memory of historical events is beyond the pale. We can easily see the incompetence in every area of society. We are not evolving but devolving. For some time now the big screen has also been pushing homosexuality and sex before marriage. They have shamelessly ignored God’s Word that homosexuals will receive the due penalty for their error (See Romans 1:27). They have covertly removed God’s law that says marriage between one man and one woman should be consecrated before sex (See I Corinthians 7:2). We must expose the lies coming out of Hollywood by proclaiming the truth. In public education, it’s less subtle when they teach their lies. They teach that abortion is not really killing a child by removing God’s foreknowledge of the child in the Mother’s womb as he’s being formed (See Jeremiah 1:5). It’s less subtle when they teach that small children can choose their own gender when it was God who made woman out of the rib of the first man, Adam, so that he could have a helpmate; so that the two shall become one flesh, fulfilling His command to be fruitful and multiply (See Genesis 2:18,24; 1:28). Our gender was uniquely designed by God to fulfill this command. How is this possible if we change our gender? We must confront the lies of public education by proclaiming the truth.

Many of the lies preached from the pulpits of America are destroying the foundation of classic Christianity. One of the biggest lies is that God is the same in every world religion. How can the God of love be the same god that teaches his followers to kill people in cold blood, chop off their heads, and subject their women to excessive cruelty? On the other hand, our God of love teaches us to turn the other cheek, go the extra mile, and consider others better than ourselves (See Matthew 5:39, 41; Philippians 2:3). This lie has destroyed the exclusiveness of Christianity. Remember that Jesus Christ said emphatically, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no one cometh to the Father, but by me” (John 14:6). We must expose the lies in religious life by proclaiming the truth. Another lie is that God did not give us everything we need for life and godliness, so we need their worldly counseling techniques and their pathetic drugs in an attempt to cure their increasing number of diagnosis of psychological problems. In so doing, they have destroyed the sufficiency of Scripture that clearly 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). As new creations (see II Corinthians 5:17) it is essential that we have all the necessary knowledge to confront every problem faced by humanity in the way of emotional and psychological problems. It’s essential that we are transformed in Christ so that we will have the power to confront the lies in religious life by proclaiming the truth. To do so my friend, will deliver many from spiritual blindness and the pit of eternal damnation.

To expose and confront the lies of the world we must listen to and obey, yes, I said to obey, the voice of the indwelling Spirit. Let me say first, and very importantly, that the indwelling Spirit will not contradict the Bible. He will uphold its truth by confirming it over and over again. So, how do we listen to the indwelling Spirit? A good place to begin is to confess your sins before a Holy God and quiet yourself before Him. That is, you cannot listen to the indwelling Spirit while you do all the thinking. Think not! And learn to listen to the still small voice of God through the Spirit. This will be the most difficult part for most because we love to think and keep on thinking until we drown out every voice but our own. If we properly quiet ourselves before the Lord, then it’s even possible to receive a short vision with its immediate interpretation. I have been listening to the indwelling Spirit for many years and I can tell you it almost always has something to do with our work for the Lord. The indwelling Spirit was not sent to be your prophetic looking glass, nor was He sent to tell you unrelated truth about your fascinations and inquiries. On the other hand, in the course of our work, we may see the prophetic and we will see and understand deeper truths beyond anything we could have imagined. Primarily, however, His job is to lead you to expose and confront the lies of the world with His truth. Won’t you join Him today in this great task or will you remain quiet as the entire world is being led astray by their blind guides? The choice is yours.

The Final Word to Mankind (Video)

If you could write one more article, or make one last speech, or record one last video for mankind what would you say? More importantly, what would God want to say through you for all of mankind? What would be His final Word to mankind? I believe He would simply and very powerfully say, “you can’t do it.” What? You cannot really change mankind.
