What Time is it?
As every true born again believer knows there is only one enemy that threatens our entire civilization and that great adversary is, of course, the old boy Satan himself. He tries many things to bring the Christian world to its end. That is his goal and his purpose. The only way for a person to see what is unfolding before our eyes in todays world is to know what the word of God says and look at it with spiritual eyes. If you are not spiritual you will not see it. With spiritual eyes you can put the pieces together so easy. The End of time Is upon us.
It is a fact that time is winding up. The end of time is closing on us fast and I'm looking for Jesus to come in the clouds of glory any day. I feel His mighty presence as I write. I'm sixty three years old at this writing and I believe with all my heart that Jesus will come in my life time. I'm looking for it and As I write this I cry out from the depths of my soul: "EVEN SO COME LORD JESUS" I'm so glad that Jesus found me! I was bought with a price and if you are saved, born again then you were too. That price was paid on Calvary long ago.
As I sit and read (I can do a lot of that now since I have all but retired) I can see a lot of things that has caused the man of sin to come quicker. It is very plain to see the world is on the broad road to destruction. Let us look at some of the things that has put this nation there. There are many but I will just list and expound on a few.
When you are a Christian nation living by God's laws and then you turn from those laws you are opening the door and giving place to the devil. We are not to give place to him, but rather rebuke him in Jesus Name. As we know this just is not happening. Our God is not allowed in our schools, court rooms, or any place of importance. America openly kill unborn babies, allow homosexuals to parade down our streets, be married in our churches, and preach behind God's sacred desk. The House has passed the controversial Hate Crime Bill which will stop pastors from speaking about homosexuality as a Biblical sin, and prohibit free religious speech against the homosexual lifestyle.The Bill is called “The Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act “and was introduced in the Senate last week just as the House passed its version in a 249-175 vote. The legislation is intended by its sponsors to protect homosexuals We only have to read from the Bible what happen to the nation of Israel when they turned from God's laws. We know what happen to that wicked city of Sodom. Will the same thing happen to the United States?
Abortion has run rampant in our country for decades to the point that this country is now allowing full term babies to be murdered. This would not of even have been thought about seventy five years ago. It was considered wrong. What happen? My answer to that is this: "When you turn your back on God anything can happen." We, at one time, lived in a Godly society but now it is an anything goes society. When ever this happened in the Bible judgement always came and America is no different. Judgement will come. People can have the attitude: "Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we may die." The only thing that is left out of that statement and their thinking was: "Then comes the Judgement."
Because of abortions in this country the population and birth rate has fell to a all time level while at the same time the Muslim population is increasing at a fast rate. According to the link that I have provided , for you to view, A Muslim world, 20 years at the present rate of abortions and the declining rate of births there will be more Muslims in this country than All other religions combined. What does this tell you? If the Lord does not soon return our children and their children will be living in a Muslim world. And to go further it is the same with all the other countries of the free world. Some are nearly all Muslim now. So just like in Nehemiah's day America is fighting a battle from without and within. Most people can not see this because you have to see spiritual things with spiritual eyes. Our birth rate all over the world is dropping while the Muslim birth rate is greatly increasing. God has a plan for man and thank God I'm in that plan. But remember Satan has a plan for man also as I have tried to lay out to you. In the end God will win and Satan will be defeated so keep your heart in tune.
This is just a small list of what Satan has put against us to bring us down and so far he is doing a pretty good job, but in the end we will win! He will never defeat God's plan for man and he will only be able to go so far, but we as Christians are still to fight the good fight. Even though we are to stand up to those who call wrong right and right wrong our battle is really spiritual. As I close this article I will leave you with these verses from God's word
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
( Ephesians 6: 10-18)
