When was the last time you heard the words “prudence” and “discretion” used in a way that was not meant to cover up the mistakes of someone, when their use wasn’t intended to keep some information from anyone. Been a while I would guess, just another sign of Isaiah 5:20, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil.”
There are a lot of signs that the faithful and the hopeful are looking for these days, floods, fires, extreme weather events of every possible kind, but it seems the more I search the less I find of the signs that are not affected by the seasons, but by the heart of man. The use of certain words similar to the ones I have mentioned, the fulfillment in many nations of Romans 1:27, “And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” Not only in practice, but made normalized by laws of those nations, thereby also fulfilling Romans 1:32, “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.”
I am fearful to say this, because it means the death of nearly every living person and creature on this earth, but we are I believe in the final days of this dispensation, if you will, of time, the age of the gentiles is almost over. Every possible Holy item that Satan can destroy, twist, or modify has been accomplished, his time is approaching, and there will be no one on this planet for a period of about seven years that will have the Holy Spirit of God indwelling them, save for the two witnesses. (Rev. 11:3) We have, again I am sorry to say, a very short window of opportunity left to reach the lost.
Those who do not know Him as Lord, those who serve a false Christ in an incredible number of religious organizations, all that will hear, we must speak to, but our adversary is not only hard at work, as it were, blinding their eyes, but I personally believe that the Lord has begun to send His strong delusion. (2 Thess. 2:11) I can find absolutely no other answer for some of what I have witnessed on a world-wide scale. Not only are there those that are being deceived, and that by the most simplest of means it seems sometimes, but there are deceivers beyond count, just as 2 Timothy 3:13 says.
There are innumerable astrology sites popping up, people searching in the dark for anything that they can grab onto, any light at all. Dreamers have populated the internet, not testing the spirits first, but proclaiming falsehoods as soon as their eyes are open, half asleep as they state that God Himself has given them a “special message.” Nearly every Evangelical church is asleep, for what reason I cannot say, but the Scriptures are clear, the times have shown that the hearts of many are waxing cold.
I did not want to live in these days, I wanted to continue to save up all year long to take a short vacation with my beautiful wife, I wanted to watch her eyes light up when her feet touched the soft sand of the beach, I wanted to hold her hand and walk in places new to the both of us. Those days are over, obedience is now required, and the world is being told that we can do whatsoever we want to do, as long as we obey what they say.
The lack of that obedience is going to cost some born-again believers, our brothers and sisters in Christ their possessions, their freedoms, even their lives. We are to warn, that is our responsibility now, the days of hoping that the judgment of God will tarry, I believe, are over, we are to warn of the great and terrible day of the Lord that is approaching to all who will listen. Those that will listen, help them to hear the truth of the love that God has for them in Jesus Christ. Those that will not hear, pray for, and then move on. The time is short, we must not be weary in the work, (Gal. 6:9) especially now.
