Lovers of self, because they are deceived and being deceived, because there is no fear of God before their eyes, because the hearts of many are growing cold. Because the time of the Gentiles and the age of grace is coming to a close.
Satan does not push his agenda on anyone, he coerces, he brings confusion, he lies, and then mankind, those who do not love the Lord God, attempt to push those ideologies upon their fellow men. Then men in authority, men who seek the praise of men above the things of God, enact laws in an attempt to force those who will not submit to their concepts of right and wrong to obey or be punished.
Evil is being called good and good evil because there is no Spiritual discernment within those who are being deceived, they do not fear God.
“He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.” (Eccl. 3:11)
“Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” (Romans 1:32)
Everything in regard to these days is about standing against those evils, about staying on the path, about remaining in the truth and on the Rock that is our Lord Jesus Christ. And my friends, it is becoming quite easy to see more clearly those that are only professing Him with their lips, who love their lives more than the Lord.
Forced submission is the way of our adversary, willing obedience out of a love for the Lord is the way of the one who has been crucified with Christ. We are to speak the truth that has set us free, Satan through evil, unrepentant men, will do all that he can to see that the truth does not reach the ears of any that serve him. We wrestle against Spiritual darkness in high places, we speak to our neighbors whom we are to love about the forgiveness that awaits them, about pleasures forevermore and eternal life, and the majority of the time we are mocked, ridiculed and scorned, yet in our patience we possess our souls.
“If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.” (John 15:18)
Are you prepared to be hated? Are you prepared if the Living God asks it of you to lose everything you have accumulated in this life, to be content if all you have and all you love is removed from you? Or will you bend, will you choose this life over death for Christ?
What is approaching cannot be stopped, the judgment of God is upon the nations, soon His wrath will come, and we will be removed. “For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.” (2nd Thess. 2:7)
We who have been saved by grace through faith are the ambassadors of the Kingdom of the Living God, we are the vessels He has determined to use to offer the truth to this evil generation, we are the mouthpieces of God Almighty, and the love of many is growing cold. We hate those who hate His name, those who despise the will and Word of the Most High, and so in love we reach out to them with His truths, even if they hate us, even if they mock us, even if they kill us.
They are being deceived, we are not, they either cannot see for the god of this world has blinded their eyes and hearts, or they have willingly refused the love offered to them. That does not matter to us, because we know their end if they do not repent, we can see them burning, screaming and eternally lost.
Our hearts have not grown cold, theirs are still made of stone. The message we offer is the same our Lord gave, “From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Matt. 4:17)
