Eventually, God allowed Satan to begin again to direct the affairs of men – however slight – toward a unified global system of governance, as he had blatantly tried in Genesis 11, in order that the Scriptures might be fulfilled. Remember, Satan is being allowed and even used by God Himself to bring a unified world to fruition. That is key. However, it must never be forgotten that Satan is fully limited by God Himself and under His control.
The one main organization in China that oversees religious groups and activities is called “State Administration for Religious Affairs (SARA).” This group has recently drawn up 26 new restrictions that they want applied to anyone who comes under the label Christian in China. Interestingly enough, the new set of drafted laws begins by clearly stating that all citizens of China are allowed to believe whatever they want to believe. However, restrictions apply as to how those beliefs can be exhibited publicly and even privately.
When we focus on changing society, we pick and choose our “enemies” in that society. We see people who oppose us as enemies and begin treating them as such. We are incapable of seeing them as people loved by God and whom He does not want to perish. In fact, because we see them as enemies, we cannot see them as people who need salvation. It’s impossible to do both! Because we live in America, anyone who attempts to deprive us of our rights under the Constitution is considered our enemy. Politics first! Society must change all for God’s glory! That’s not what the Bible says. He will change society when He returns with His righteous judgment. We cannot do that, yet we persist in trying.
Society is drastically changing. We cannot stop it, but we can continue to evangelize the lost. I see a day when persecution will be part of the daily experience for most Christians. It is something we don’t really see in America and when it comes, it will come with a fervor that is unexpected largely because so many think that our efforts will stem the tide. Christians today fail to understand that God allows and uses persecution to perfect His people because it is persecution that causes people to throw themselves on Him and remain close to Him more than anything else. Good times don’t do that. Relaxing atmospheres don’t bring that about. In fact, it’s clear that during those times, Christians become enamored with the world and even lazy about their faith.
But let’s be clear here though because in making these types of statements, it also means that what applies to Islam does not necessarily apply to any other religion. This is the full meaning of Obama’s statement. It does not matter that he referred to Christianity or Judaism or any other religion in his same speech to the UN. The fact that he specifically held up Islam as requiring special handling tells us a great deal.
Note the ecstatic movement and utterances. Numerous individuals have no trouble walking backwards without stepping on anyone, while others can’t do that. The look in the eyes is very important. There appears to be a heightened “blank” stare emanating from many, including the leader at times.
