I Will Be Like the Most High, Part 5

I am convinced that Satan has been using ideologies like Dominionism to cause Christians to shift their focus away from spiritual needs to material needs. In the meantime though, Satan continues to redirect society away from God and God allows it. God does so because His highest purposes benefit from it. While I believe the church needs to “wake up,” it needs to do so with respect to the Great Commission and not any sense of “Dominionism” or “Reconstructionism” that is allegedly supposed to direct our steps.

If God is allowing Satan every opportunity to make himself “like” the Most High, it stands to reason then that God will allow His own Word to be fulfilled and that includes a time when Satan – through his spiritual “son” – will rule the earth during the final seven-year period, which ends with the physical return of Jesus.

I Will Be Like the Most High, Part 4

However, if we look seriously at the whole timeline of events from Creation until now, or at least since the time of Christ until now, what has been the one constant that is to absorb Christians? What one thing are all Christians to be involved in regardless of how good or bad the times are in society? If you answered “the Great Commission,” you would be 100% correct. This should be every Christian’s main push. It is our true calling, our main calling, not our secondary calling.

I Will Be Like the Most High, Part 3

So why did God allow Satan to do all of this only to stop him from completing his mission? Was God afraid that He was inevitably too weak to deal with Satan? Let’s not be absurd. There are only two reasons why God “delayed” the inevitable here. First, the nation of Israel had not yet been created. From the nation of Israel would come to Messiah/Savior of humanity for those who would trust in Him through faith. It was only after God the Son came in human flesh as Savior to live a life of sinless perfection and die a sinner’s death only to rise again because death could not hold Him, would Satan be allowed to bring His Isaiah 14 promises to fruition in earnest. Second, God wanted to ensure that Satan had every opportunity to bring his whispered goals to fruition, but they would be done in God’s time.

Bible College Name Changes that Delete Bible

When I did talk with people at what used to be PCB, I was told that the surviving family and/or children of some of the teachers I learned under when attended PCB, were fully in favor of the name change. So? I’m not interested in what they think. I’m only interested in what God thinks. People – even in churches or parachurch organizations – too often tend to go along with the majority and blame it on God. “See? We’re unanimous, so it must be God.” They appear to be reading a different Bible than me because unanimity is not a hard and fast rule for determining God’s will. In fact, it seems that God’s will is often found in the minority of opinion.

I Will Be Like the Most High, Part 2

What can we expect in this world and what should we see unfolding, not only in our lifetime, but up until and including the end of the coming Tribulation period? If God is going to allow Satan the opportunities he needs to attempt to bring his promises to fruition, how will that appear to us? Will we see it happening? Will it affect the world and our lives? What changes might we see in global society as Satan is allowed to bring the needed change to this world so that he can ascend, if you will, to become absolute ruler?

eBible Group Predicts End of World and Spins When It Doesn’t Happen

It is amazing to me how easily we can ignore Jesus’ own words and commands. Yet, these same people lift their hands high during “worship” because it “feels” good and they get all warm and bubbly inside, with tears forming on the edges of their eyelids. This makes them feel spiritual, but as I’ve stated before on many occasions, we are not to base truth on how we feel about something. We are to base it on what the Bible says. Too many professing Christians seem unable to do that though. They prefer running after the latest sign.

Prophecies of Daniel 1, Part 4

Let’s also note here that it becomes clear that God gave Daniel this particular ability because God had plans to use Daniel to bring hidden knowledge to us in what would become the twelve chapters of the book of Daniel. Without the ability to receive and discern visions and dreams, we would not have the book of Daniel. We need to comprehend that God gives this type of gift when He sees fit and for His purposes, not for ours.

Discernment is so lacking today among Christians. Too many tend to flit from this latest theological fad (usually connected with Eschatology or prophecy), to that fad, or to that one over there. Instead of studying the Bible for themselves, too many Christians read books about the Bible, attend conferences where other Christians excitedly talk about books they’ve written about the Bible, but those same Christians do not simply study the Bible for themselves.
