Dearth of Discernment?

There appears to be a growing discernment dearth, for the lack of putting it another way. Christians, by and large, are failing to see the signs. I’m guessing it’s because they are failing to read His Word or have that Word expositionally preached. For too long, it seems that seeker-sensitive churches have “warmed hearts” while not educating believers or professing Christians. The result is a growing tide of church-goers who cannot distinguish between truth and lies.

Fearing the Lord Wrongly

Instead, as we read in Exodus 20, the people were actually afraid enough of God that they went to Moses and said, “You speak with us, and we will hear; but let not God speak with us, lest we die.” (v 19). It was good that their fear heightened their senses and made them think about God. The problem is that they feared God wrongly. While they were cognizant of their sin and depravity compared to God (a good thing), they failed to comprehend His love for them as seen in His willingness to meet with them and teach them.

Fear of Impending Death Pushes World Toward Revelation

All this is to say that global society is quickly moving toward the time when all will be in place to allow the final global kingdom of Daniel 2 to come to the fore. There is nothing we can do to stop this from happening and we should not spend our time or energy trying to stop it from happening. God says it will happen just like the previous kingdoms came and went – Babylonian, Medo-Persian, Grecian, and Roman. God has a number of purposes in allowing these kingdoms to come into existence and the entirety of the Bible lays it out.

Discerning the Times: Wicked Scoffers, CV and More

Whether God chooses to take vengeance on the wicked in this life or when they stand before Him is immaterial. But we can rest assured that it will be accomplished. There is a rising tide of evil acts in society committed by people who are clearly sold out to evil itself. These people have no consciences anymore because any conscience they did have was seared long ago. They have become brutes (2 Peter 2:12).

Empty Words from Empty Hearts

People have a great ability to fool other people. In fact, there’s an entire industry built around that ability and it’s called acting. Top paid actors pull in millions of dollars for every project they’re involved in. Apart from all those actors though are every day people who are still able to act and often do so every day. They pretend to be one thing when they are not. They pull the wool over the eyes of other people. The best of these people are sometimes referred to as con artists because they have perfected ways to manipulate people through expressed words and apparent feelings. There are many examples of people being conned out of fortunes by brilliant con artists.

Should Christians Be Preppers?

We live on several acres in the country. There are a ton of trees in our county that are very old. Limbs often simply fall to the ground, sometimes taking out electric wires. When that happens, electricity goes out. We knew of this possibility when we moved in so we had a plan that included buying a decent sized generator and installing a transfer plug so that when it happened, we could be back up and running in mere moments.

Discerning the Times: Just Say Nothing

In other words, Job was admitting that it was best if he said absolutely nothing except to clarify his own position before God Almighty. Does this not take your breath away? Do you not see yourself doing the same thing?

Three Men and God

Everything we fear actually becomes the very thing we worship, because we are giving precedence and importance to that thing or person, whether or not we are willing to admit that. We must work to actively fear the LORD and by doing so, will push out everything else that vies for our attention and adoration.

Discerning the Times: Nehemiah, The Chosen and CV-19

I tell you this so that your main focus will be the cultivation of the fear of the LORD. As a result, whether you find you have immense empathy for people and a desire to help them or you react toward sin the way Nehemiah did, we should always realize that without fear of the LORD, these things are often done from our flesh.

Teach me Your way, O LORD; I will walk in Your truth; Unite my heart to fear Your name. (Psalm 86:11 NKJV)

Whom or What Do You Fear?

Nehemiah moved ahead with the king’s permission in spite of the terrorist threats from his enemies he encountered. In fact, not only did Nehemiah not give into his enemies, but what is interesting is how he stationed some men as guards and soldiers who carried spears and arrows in case of an attack by their enemies. The men who were directly working on the wall had a trowel in one hand and a sword in the other, also prepared to immediately be able to defend themselves in case of attack.
