Micromanaging Mayberry

There are numerous dictators highlighted in Scripture that evidence so much evil, corruption and a desire to control that they stand out as types for the coming Antichrist. One such individual is Antiochus Epiphanes IV. We actually read about this unnamed historical figure several places in the book of Daniel, but it is far more pronounced in Daniel 11:1-35. Here, Antiochus Ephiphanes didn’t seem to care about money, but gathered it for use as a tool. He’d bribe people with it and got folks to do his bidding. Beyond this, he could flatter the clothes off your back with his words and demeanor. He had a habit of coming alongside of someone, taking them into his confidence and making them feel extremely important and needed. Once he had gained their respect and admiration, he thought nothing of throwing them under the bus.

Deceivers Deceiving

Scripture tells us deception has always been alive and well. It first began in the Garden of Eden with Satan working through the compliant form of the serpent, who plied Eve with lies she believed (Genesis 3). It should not come as a surprise that since that time, Satan has been using deception in all forms to bring about his agenda. This is especially true in these last days or end times. All manner of deception is wreaking havoc on global society within Christendom, the political and business arena and even within the medical field. Is it the Christian’s job to change this (I’m not convinced we can), or to simply continue trying to evangelize the lost?

Don’t Forget the IF…

It seems clear enough as far as God is concerned, that the Israelites did things outwardly to appear holy and righteous while they actually called into contempt man and God. They fasted, but they completely ignored the heavy burdens that some Israelites were carrying. Some Israelites were forced to beg and no other Israelites would come to their aid, ignoring them.

Is America Under Judgment?

What should also be noted is that Jones’ message is comforting for the believer. For those who faithfully seek Him, He rewards with blessing after blessing even in difficult times. It’s something that we should be staunchly aware of because our active, ongoing relationship with God in Christ matters in many ways. We grow to spiritual maturity, God uses us to spread His Word and comfort to those who are frail in faith. This cannot happen if we are preoccupied with our own affairs, worry, doubt, and frustration about what we see in society.

Trust the Lord and Do Good

So what is the antidote for authentic Christians as we increasingly find ourselves dealing with people who have reprobate minds? There is really only one antidote and it is found in Scripture. In fact, it is found throughout Scripture.

Death of Human Conscience?

So according to Harari, people are duty bound to do whatever it takes to invest in and embrace any and all technology that will modify our bodies with implantable technology, all of it leading to a new “consciousness.” Exactly what is this new “consciousness” that the author speaks of here that will “modify, transform and enhance” our bodies? Do Technocrats want us to live longer? I doubt that’s their concern. If it was, abortion certainly would be opposed by them. Reading between the lines, it seems clear that the goal, whether direct or indirect, is to simply eliminate God from our thinking and life itself.

White Horse and Rider?

Revelation 6:1 introduces a rider on a white horse. What’s he all about? He clearly conquers politically because he has no weapons; a bow with no arrows. But what type of political conquering is he doing and what is his purpose? It seems as though he is first among various riders to gain more control over the world’s populace. Has that been happening?

Are Globalists Winning?

Globalists may appear to be winning, but their end will come when our Lord returns physically to this planet to judge the nations and establish His Millennial Kingdom. Our job is to watch, work and pray while we wait for that glorious event.

Hopeful or Hopeless?

So, while on one hand, it is fairly easy to become discouraged and feel somewhat hopeless about what is happening in the world, it is very clear that God is still moving, working in hearts and calling people to Him for eternal salvation. Evil cannot override God’s will. This is really what it’s all about. It’s not about politics and by focusing too much on that area, nothing will rob you of the hope that you have in Christ faster. His ways are not our ways. His timing is all His own. He is either sovereign all the time or He is not sovereign at all.

Narrow Your Prayer Focus

I’m suggesting we change focus so that the focus is more on things closer to home; family, friends, church people and those around you that you know are unsaved. It is far easier for me to believe that God hears those prayers and will respond favorably, as opposed to prayers to change the course of this world. His Word teaches us that this is not going to happen until everything has played out according to the perfection of His will.
