Poor Jeremiah was a righteous man who did his very best to warn the people of God, to repent and escape the wrath that God was going to pour out upon Judah. Some listened and saved themselves, but most did not. And, Jeremiah had to watch the rebels among God’s people destroy themselves and everyone around them.
For those who are giving warning to the Body of Christ, to repent and escape the wrath of God, you are walking in the footsteps of Jeremiah. Some of our brothers and sisters will repent and escape. Most will not.
I am amazed and disheartened by the growing number of those who claim Jesus as their Lord and Savior – but have chosen to ally themselves with Satan. And, one symbol of that vile alliance can be found in ‘christian’ support for Muslims, as they seek to annihilate Israel.
To put it another way, the Palestinian movement is an attempt by Islam to do one thing:
If you side with the Palestinians, against Israel, you are in alliance with a cult of death. And, this means that you are allied with Satan.
Pure and simple.
And, please don’t tell me how awful the Israelis are. They are NOT as terrible as the Palestinian spin-doctors would have you believe, and I am going to prove that to you – if you are willing to hear the truth.
As I look back on this week, I see a theme that runs through it – our sinfulness. We have made compromises on the truth. We have compromised our morality. And, we have chosen pastors who do the same.
And, when that happens, God sends strong delusions among us:
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. – 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12
The word for ‘damned’ is the Greek word, krithosin – or, should be judged. And, THAT is what is happening right now. We are being judged by God.
As I said yesterday, I didn’t always see the CIA as evil. In fact, I usually thought of it as a pretty cool organization. But, that was before the evidence started piling up that there was something dreadfully wrong with them.
Unfortunately, part of the problem lies in the basic fact of how such organizations are created and organized. Such organizations are ALWAYS going to become evil, if they aren’t managed properly. In fact, I’m not even sure that it was ever possible to set up and manage the CIA properly.
But, worrying over what-might-have-beens ultimately doesn’t solve the problem that lies at our door.
No civilization lasts forever. So, it shouldn’t be a surprise that our own civilization is going to fall. The problem is that our fall will be the biggest and most violent in human history. Billions will die, and it will set the stage for the coming of the Antichrist.
Unfortunately, collapses like this ALWAYS happen suddenly – almost without warning. I say ‘almost’ because there ARE warning signs, but you need to pay attention to see them. The signs are always hidden in the back pages of newspapers – and in the Bible.
Of course, we stopped reading our Bible a long time ago, which is yet another sign of the coming fall of our civilization.
