Thursday marked the 100 year anniversary of the Balfour Declaration. It laid the groundwork for the completely legal distribution of land rights to the Jews, as the foul and evil Ottoman Empire was being dismembered. And, make no mistake, the Ottoman Empire was truly corrupt and Satanic.
(Remember the Armenian Genocide?)
It was also a moment in time that marked the spread of the idea of the Nation State. The monarchies were dying. The ‘divine right of kings’ was losing recognition. And, it was the high water mark for Christianity in Europe and North America. After that, it was downhill.
Never forget that the founding of the State of Israel and her success has been entirely due to the Christians.
America suffers trouble and distress because our churches have turned their back upon God. They forgot the need to love the truth and obey God. They allowed heresy and sin to creep into their leadership. They became dens of iniquity, full of anger and without care for the suffering of their brethren.
The bitter heart of our churches is bearing fruit. This poisonous and toxic result of our sinful embrace of this life will choke what life is left in America.
The World held its breath as the heads of the Federal Reserve met. And, we all breathed a sigh of relief as they chose not to raise interest rates. But, if you knew the fear at the heart of this decision you wouldn’t feel relief. From now until the Lord returns, fear, desperation and greed will be the watchwords of our society.
This is why Muslim migrants are flooding into Europe. This is why China fortifies tiny atolls in the South China Sea. This is why Russia sends weapons to Syria. This is why ISIS fights to the death. This will be why America will one day declare Martial Law. This will be why Gog and Magog will come against Israel.
My hope is that you will prepare and not join the world in this Fear, Desperation and Greed.
When you’re taking flak, you’re right over the target.
Unfortunately, I’m afraid that the Pretribulation Rapture Lie is the single most important issue for those of us trying to awaken our brothers and sisters. The Body of Christ is in grave peril, and this lie is working to keep us asleep while Satan ushers in his Antichrist.
Worse, 99% of what I talk about will happen BEFORE the Tribulation begins. Yet, I find countless dispensationalists coming to me to say that we have nothing to fear, because the Rapture will happen before any great suffering.
I didn’t actually want to write about Biblical interpretation this week. There were so many other things that were happening, that it seemed a dereliction of duty to speak on this topic. But, I also realized that without a clear view of the Bible, everything that I write would be useless.
Without a clear direction by God, we have no hope of surviving what is coming. In fact, it will take a miracle, and we cannot expect miracles if we are not truly resting in His Word.
How can we say that we truly love God, if we twist His words?
All that technology has done is act as a lever to magnify the efforts of our sinful nature. Technology is the lever, and it is our hand wielding this lever.
Furthermore, I see that this lever has been used to pry us away from the Holy Spirit. We have quenched the Spirit, and that has left us vulnerable to foolish doctrines that have led some pastors to preach damnable heresy.
On Friday, I was horrified to hear two preachers repeat and reaffirm an abominable heresy that will lead their followers to a certain decision – one that will result in an eternity in Hell. And, these were two preachers that I liked and respected.
I am still shocked and outraged, but I’ve had time to reflect on how and why they came to believe and preach such an abomination. It is as natural as it is awful, and my hope is that you will avoid their errors by submitting yourself to the direction of the Holy Spirit as you read your Bible.
