Laodicean Church Age is NOW

A couple of important CV-19 related and other links for your consideration:

I’ve had more and more Christians tell me recently that they feel “weird.” They go between feeling anger/sorrow/grief over what is happening in the world to feeling excitement about the prospect of the upcoming Rapture, or Flight 777. My wife and I experience the same thing. It is weird.

Society is inundated with pronounced, growing abject evil that is being normalized and we don’t understand why people cannot see it. We need to remind ourselves of Paul’s words about God sending the world a strong delusion so that they will believe the lie (2 Thessalonians 2:11). The “lie” here likely refers to all lies that usher in the final global kingdom to be ruled over by Antichrist. This strong delusion is going to be a major impetus in bringing forth the NWO and Antichrist. We cannot force people to see truth, but of course we need to tell them anyway.

I was talking with my brother-in-law, who thinks of himself as a “conservative.” He watches CNN and FOX thinking that he is getting the truth between them. The more I’ve listened to him pontificate over the years, the more I realize he’s just left of center. He is a Christian and he and his wife both got the two-shot Pfizer jab because he says, he’s “old” (just turned 69) and because they believe Big Pharma truly wants to help, not harm. When I told him about the Fauci emails, his response was, “Oh, I don’t believe that garbage.” Cognitive dissonance is very much alive in way too many people, even Christians. They believe the government is here to help. I plan on asking him what he thinks about the end times and final global kingdom of Daniel 2.

The only Christians I know of who are truly “woke” are those who see the signs of the times and understand the result. Other Christians who are not truly familiar with the end times events, seem to think that if they work hard enough against the globalists’ coming NWO, they will be victorious and the NWO will be defeated.

I’m not saying that Christians should go along with everything leading to the coming NWO. I’m simply saying that trying to defeat what God said is coming is foolish thinking. Christians who understand the times are the ones experiencing the weird feelings or the pulling of our emotions from one side to the other. Of course, we shouldn’t be guided by our emotions, though they can be barometers. It must have been what Jesus also lived with as He walked this earth.

This “weirdness” of our emotions should also translate to a growing willingness to preach the Gospel to everyone. That’s our job, isn’t it? Here is a great lesson on how to present the Gospel (from the folks at Now the End Begins), while not relying on the “sinner’s prayer,” which is simply “easy believism.” Too many are instead fighting against the growing NWO. Why? Because we are living in the Laodicean Age.

On February 13, 2016, I wrote an article about Paul’s letter to the Colossians [1] and specifically his comments related to a then up and coming church in Laodicea. Though he wrote to the Colossian believers, he also wanted his letter sent onto the believers at Laodicea so it could be read there.

What is interesting is that between the time Paul wrote his letter to the Colossians and the time John wrote Revelation, a period of about 30 years had passed. Yet, when we get to John’s written description of Laodicea as he recorded the very words of Jesus, we see a completely different church at Laodicea from the one that began thirty years prior.

I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither [k]cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. (Revelation 3:15-16 NKJV)

Jesus says the Laodicean church had become “lukewarm.” Since it was neither hot nor cold, Jesus said He was getting ready to spit it out of His mouth. What a condemnation! This “lukewarm” state meant and means that Laodicea had seriously begun to compromise the truth, leaving their commitment to Jesus and embracing things outside of Christianity, while trying to maintain their worship of God; syncretism.

This chart outlines the birth pangs, which we will deal with individually

The church today is mirroring the attitude of ancient Israel via compromise from a cold heart. This problem is occurring at a fast pace today and much of Christendom appears to be going the way of Laodicea. Tragic but foretold.

Here’s a chart I created for a book I previously published and also used in another series I wrote back in 2014. The chart highlights several things. It highlights the birth pangs that Jesus spoke of in His Olivet Discourse of Matthew 24. Notice the first three have occurred. The rest are still ahead.

Personally, I believe the Allied Invasion of Israel will occur prior to the Tribulation as I’ve noted, while others believe it is the same event as Armageddon, occurring at the end of the Tribulation. Hard to know for certain.

Also note that above those birth pangs on the chart is written “Mega-Church.” This indicates the Laodicean Age of church history today, where apostasy will grow like a wildfire overtaking much of Christendom. As noted, I’m seeing and hearing about more authentic Christians removing themselves from their own local churches that are sliding quickly toward apostasy.

I was reading some posts over at J D Farag website and it is interesting to learn how many Christians seem unable to find a church they can count on for quality expositional Bible teaching and a non-compromising attitude with the world. Too many churches today are caught up in the social justice warrior mentality that plagues society, only to continue to radically divide it and that’s the plan.

Here is a particularly long post by someone at Farag’s forum who goes into some depth about the difficulties they’re having at their own Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) church. If you head over there to read the person’s post (named StillWaters), take time to read the many replies to that first post. Christians are finding it more and more difficult to find good, Bible-teaching churches where Christ is upheld and the world has not made inroads into that church. Part of the problem is that with the IRS and their 501(c)3, churches, while tax-exempt really must toe the line in many ways.

I’ve been critical of the Southern Baptist Convention before and there is good reason to be. Their growing endorsement of racial reconciliation, BLM, CV-19 vax, women preaching to mixed crowds, and more, has resulted in the SBC compromising with the world and becoming very much like the original church at Laodicea. You can read more about the SBC and some of the problems associated with it here.

What I find particularly loathsome is the possibility that the government has secretly begun instructing Christian leaders to get on-board the CV-19 vax train. Because of this, leaders within the SBC are talking up the jab, just like Franklin Graham and other well known “celebrity” Christian leaders, even bragging about taking the jab and gently “denigrating” those who refuse.

It is interesting to note that this same agenda was used during the days of Margaret Sanger and her Planned Parenthood. She specifically used black ministers to deliver the message to the black community about how necessary abortions were for the black community so that black women did not need to feel they had no options. It has also been confirmed that Sanger was a eugenicist and virulently racist. Interestingly enough, much of her funding came from the Rockefeller family.

The church today has become filled with “hirelings” who are more interested in their own fame and fortune, rather than presenting the truth of Scripture. These are the false shepherds, the wolves in sheep’s clothing who live to lead people away from the truth.

What we will inevitably continue to see is an even greater push toward ecumenism and world unity as the final world order of Daniel 2 takes shape. I knew this was coming but did not foresee that an illness would be used to create it. See? That proves I’m not a “prophet”!

The Tribulation is coming. This will be the final opportunity for Satan to fulfill his five “I will” promises and to rise using his false trinity Satan (Father), Antichrist (Son), False Prophet (Holy Spirit), and the armies of this world in a pitiful attempt to keep Jesus from returning to this world. Consider the hubris that must be Satan’s to actually believe he has a chance to overthrow God! How many times does he have to be defeated to understand?

The coming Tribulation will be absolutely horrible for anyone living through it. The saddest part of all of it is not how much the world has contributed to bringing the Tribulation about, but in fact, the most disappointing and ignoble aspect of the coming Tribulation is what Christendom itself has contributed to bringing it to the fore. I firmly believe, as many do, that a winnowing is occurring now. God is separating authentic Christians from the rest, uncommitted from the committed. I fully believe that as His authentic children seek His face, grow the fear of the Lord that is within them and walk in a way that pleases Him, they will receive strength, discernment/wisdom and an attitude that absolutely delights in fearing Him enough to serve Him without question.

I think authentic Christians will continue to grow in their love and fear of our LORD as the days pass. While we see and are dismayed by what is happening in the world, those things will cause us to lift our heads and rejoice in all that God has done, is doing, and will do for His servants and saints. I believe we will get to a point where we do not fear the world or anyone in it. We will be lifted above the problems of this world to new heights of knowledge and understanding where God and His Word are concerned.

I wish I could know just how bad things will get prior to the Rapture, but I don’t. The Bible itself is not explicit either. God will provide strength, wisdom and discernment for us IF we willingly submit to Him and learn to fear, love, and trust Him. This may not come easily, but we will benefit greatly from, as Paul says, working out our salvation with fear and trembling!

    You continue to write very comforting words that help during these times…for this I thank you! You are so correct in your insight into all this and hopefully many more people will come to realize just how close to something so prophetic happening, they can’t but take notice!

    We keep our eyes looking up…and on Israel with all the shenanigans going on over there! Things could really heat up sooner than we think…

    “Just a month ago, while Hamas was launching thousands of rockets indiscriminately towards Israeli civilians, Ra’am’s leaders pulled out of coalition negotiations to protest Israeli efforts to stop these attacks and demanded that charges be dropped against Arab Israelis who burned down synagogues and attacked Jews. Yet today they have a recognized deputy minister’s seat with over a billion dollars to spend at their own discretion.”

      Thx Maranatha and what you add to the conversation is uplifting as well.

      Yes, interesting what’s going on in Israel and Middles East. Bibi out and a new coalition with joint leadership by Jews and Muslims. Weird but it moves things that much quicker toward Trib doesn’t it?

      Thx for the link 🙂
