2 Thessalonians: Holding Up Under Hard Times

I recall one particular situation where as I was walking home from school, I was approached and blocked by a larger student, who was getting in my face and being unkind to say the least. I’ve always had the ability to say what I thought even when it wasn’t necessarily the wisest thing to do. Instead of backing down, I stood up as tall as I could and with a bit of false bravado, I refused to be bullied. I balled up my fists and stuck out my chin to him as I refused to cower outwardly. Surprisingly, instead of beating me, he eventually simply walked away with a snarl.

2 Thessalonians: Introduction

Though these things are often unpleasant, God allows these for our growth and His glory – the spread of the Gospel. It may be extremely difficult for us – depending upon our personalities – to willingly place ourselves under persecution God allows to come to us. Yet Paul echoes Jesus in saying we are blessed! God WILL reward our willing acceptance of what He allows to come our way. He will reward us NOW with greater faith and the ability to persevere. He will reward us LATER with a full rest from all afflictions/persecutions.

Lawlessness: the Vehicle Ushering in Final Empire

As lawlessness increases, we know that things are building to a new order, the final empire. The goal of lawlessness is not simply to be lawless. The goal is to overturn and overrule. It puts so much internal pressure on the current system that something has to give. That something is usually the system itself, which is replaced with something else.

Social Distancing Measures are Here to Stay

What we are seeing is pure Hegelian Dialectic. The government wanted a specific direction so they created a problem (shutting down society based on a health risk), people clamor for a solution so government said, “Okay” and start reopening society with many restrictive measures in place and the only way they’ll possibly be rolled back is by receiving the coming vaccine. Because there is some relief, the average person breathes a sigh of relief believing that things are going back to normal. Instead, a new normal is created and people eventually get used to it.

Babylon and Its System, Part 4

Those Christians living during the coming Tribulation will be very tempted to become part of the Babylon system – religiously, economically, politically and socially – and may even want to move to that location to be closer to the action. The fact that once destroyed, Babylon becomes a haunt of demons, unclean spirits, birds and beasts probably affirms the fact that this Babylon in Revelation 17/18 is a real, physical place if physical birds and beasts can dwell there.

Babylon and Its System, Part 1

But Babylon is not simply the apostate religious system in all its forms. It also includes and is undergirded by the economic system that holds it up. This is what Revelation 18 is all about as it shows us a Babylon that is an economic system.

The Stones Would Cry Out

The idea that the more Christians work (or pray, etc.), the sooner more will come to know Him and the world will change for the better flies in the face of biblical revelation. The Bible says these are bad times and they will get far worse until He raptures His Bride from this earth. Once that happens, judgment will fall onto the earth. Only upon His physical return will this world begin to experience the peace of the Millennial Kingdom over which Jesus Himself will rule with a rod of iron.

Everyone Doing What is Good in Their Own Eyes

It is going to get really difficult for Christians as things progress toward the end. It’s just the way it is as revealed in Scripture. Christians are going to once again be the scapegoat for everything the world doesn’t like and they will not hesitate to take it out on us. What’s our recourse? Get and stay close to God! Read His Word daily. Commune with Him often. Seek to live as He would like us to live.The road ahead looks very bleak, at least for a while, until the Lord Himself returns. I believe we can have peace in the midst of the trials headed our way, but that peace will not happen accidentally. It will happen as we do what we need to do to draw and remain close to God our Father.

College Courses Help Prepare for Upcoming Contact with Aliens

It is becoming clear that in society there are two groups; one group seeks truth the other rejects truth and seeks lies to further their agenda. The Bible says it will get worse with people who continually reject all truth actually embracing lies to a greater degree. This is now unfolding in society, preparing society for the coming powerful false signs and wonders that many will attribute to “God” but in fact, will be the deceptive creations of Satan and his horde of demons. This is especially true with the area of alienology or UFOs.
