Dawn of the Satanic Age

If Satan were to be successful, he would actually destroy Christianity and God. Of course, he can’t do this, but those involved in today’s mystery religions believe he will. Why? Because Satan has told them so and they believe it and have joined with him to make this happen. His followers are united in their belief that Satan (Lucifer), is the true “light-bearer;” the good guy. Jesus is the bad guy.

God Will Strengthen You

Many portions of Scripture speak of how obedience to God looks. In verses leading up to Isaiah 58:11 we learn of several ways to obey God. Proverbs 1:7 says, “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” Would you consider yourself a fool or wise? It is easy to determine. Do you fear the LORD God? Do you hold Him in absolute, profound and reverential awe? Do you strive to obey His commandments so that your relationship with Him grows and deepens and so that He can recreate within you the character of His Son, Jesus?

Guided and Unanxious

With respect to present or future events, God is saying, “Don’t fear! I am in your life as God!” The meaning here is that because He is our God (a condition signalling our relationship to and with Him), we should not settle for fear or anxiety in our lives. Instead, we should look to Him and away from Self. Doing so puts a different perspective on things. Job learned this very clearly toward the end of the book of Job.

Discerning the Times: Departing the Faith

Of course, what is just as concerning, if not more so, are the many leaders within Christendom who have not yet physically left the faith, but have remained, teaching heresies to followers, which results in creating heretics. This latter group may be far worse than the first, though both are clearly problematic. While the first group has at least been honest enough to admit their own failure to believe truth and have, realizing they cannot remain, the latter group has walked away from the truth and replaced it with lies, yet they remain in positions of authority within Christendom.

Fear Not

God wants us to “sit down” on the inside by empowering us to live as He would have us live. Interestingly enough, if we actually learn to biblically fear God, we will, I believe, at the same time, be learning to “fear not” or to “rest in Him” as He works in and through us for His good pleasure.

Inevitable Tragedy of Evil Rulers

The evil of so many kings of Israel/Judah tends to shock us because this was the nation that God created, revealed Himself to, and gave His Law to so that they would be a light to the world. We wonder how after experiencing so many blessings and miracles came to a point of rejecting God? It is the same reason people do so today; it is due to our sin and our unwillingness to live in fear of the Lord that would cause us to live godly lives, which is seen in obedience to Him. This puts us at odds with God. Even as Christians, if we are not careful to nurture our relationship with God, we will fail.

Ahab’s Evil Politics

But in spite of all the terribly godless things Ahab did during his 20-year reign, probably the thing that most disturbs me is Ahab’s tacit approval of the murder of Naboth (1 Kings 21), to take Naboth’s vineyard/land. Here was a godly man of Israel simply trying to live in obedience to God because he obviously feared God, which enabled him to stand up to the king. How else could he have stood up to Ahab? Obeying God was far more important to Naboth.

Fear God and Live

The subject is fearing the Lord, something that I believe too many Christians (including me), fail at miserably. It happens because we do not focus on our obligation to fear Him because we are often too focused on His mercy, love, and grace. While those things are clearly important, without balancing things out with a healthy profound reverential awe and respect for Him, we become one-sided and truly off balance.

Are We There?

Over the past week or so, I’ve pretty much stopped going to social networks. It’s always the same repeatedly. I’d rather ignore what’s there and just concentrate on what God is doing. If I am learning to fear Him, then I must be willing to let go of those things of this world that keep me bound to frustration, worry and concern.

I honestly believe that as we separate from the Babylon system, we will be honoring Him and what we do in secret will be rewarded openly and that includes a greater awareness of Him and His work in and through us.

Will you join me in praying for each other that we will learn to offer Him our sacrifice of fear that leads to obedience?

Discerning the Times: Heretics, Racism and New Numbers for Holocaust?

Our anti-Christian society wants us all to conform. They want churches to play by their rules. They don’t like it when some pastors try to buck the world’s system and government officials then decide to come down on them for their unwillingness to tow the line. But in fact, Christians have a much higher calling and it is now past time for us to realize and understand this. If we say we are Christians, shouldn’t we understand and live in a way that prompts us to follow Jesus regardless of the cost?

Grow in your godly fear Him this week!
