Pitfalls of Success

Wealth (success) today is often seen to mean that God has His hand on that person’s life. I know of pastors of smallish churches who consistently preach the Word in and out of season. Their ability to exegete and expositionally preach the Word is a true gift from God and something they have dutifully fanned into a flame. Yet, these pastors, who work hard to care for (not lord over), their flocks do not minister to thousands and thousands of people. Compared to seeker-sensitive churches who boast thousands of people every Sunday, these pastors and their churches are not “successful” by the world’s standards. How about by God’s standards? Are they doing what they are supposed to be doing? It seems so even though they have far fewer numbers to show for it.

New Age’s Intentions, Pt 2

Global unification is happening, politically and religiously. The New Age movement in all its forms is the main catalyst. It’s all being done for the “good” of humankind, we are being told. Cashless society is almost here. Vaccine passports are coming and with them, very likely some sort of implant option. International travel to Europe will be excluded for those who do not have a vaccine passport. The tremendous debt that began under the last several presidents continues under Biden and there will come a reckoning. The USA’s southern border is so porous that it’s a wonder anything and anyone is kept out. Our country is being deliberately overwhelmed financially and politically and an overwhelmed system cannot continue to operate, eventually failing. That is the goal and God is allowing it. Now is the time to come out of Babylon.

Dawn of the Satanic Age

If Satan were to be successful, he would actually destroy Christianity and God. Of course, he can’t do this, but those involved in today’s mystery religions believe he will. Why? Because Satan has told them so and they believe it and have joined with him to make this happen. His followers are united in their belief that Satan (Lucifer), is the true “light-bearer;” the good guy. Jesus is the bad guy.

God Will Strengthen You

Many portions of Scripture speak of how obedience to God looks. In verses leading up to Isaiah 58:11 we learn of several ways to obey God. Proverbs 1:7 says, “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” Would you consider yourself a fool or wise? It is easy to determine. Do you fear the LORD God? Do you hold Him in absolute, profound and reverential awe? Do you strive to obey His commandments so that your relationship with Him grows and deepens and so that He can recreate within you the character of His Son, Jesus?

Discerning the Times: Departing the Faith

Of course, what is just as concerning, if not more so, are the many leaders within Christendom who have not yet physically left the faith, but have remained, teaching heresies to followers, which results in creating heretics. This latter group may be far worse than the first, though both are clearly problematic. While the first group has at least been honest enough to admit their own failure to believe truth and have, realizing they cannot remain, the latter group has walked away from the truth and replaced it with lies, yet they remain in positions of authority within Christendom.

As Babylon Takes Shape…

At the Tower of Babel, God did not directly interact with Satan at all or his protégé Nimrod. God instead simply “went down” among the people and confused their languages by introducing many languages at that point. People divided along language differences and finally did what God had long before instructed Noah; to replenish the earth. Up to that point, everyone lived in the area of Shinar where the temple to the people’s gods was being constructed as symbol of defiance and disobedience to God. It is the same spirit that is currently shaping the modern day system of Babylon.

Discerning the Times: Truth for Christians

Ironside clearly enunciates the truth of Scripture and proves that while our lives should continually improve because of our standing and position before Christ and the progress that we are to make as we daily surrender to Him, the fact remains that those caught up in some form of holiness movement become either entirely hypocritical or have some type of breakdown and/or falling away from the faith. This belief that we can reach a state of absolute pure and consistent holiness without ever again sinning is not taught in Scripture and Ironside explains that very clearly.

It Is Past Time

If we consider world history from the mid-1800’s to now and we focus solely on the rise of Communism, it is very easy to see how Communism made the inroads it has made. They did it by slowly taking over the institutions and with continued deception, fraud and murder. That is abundantly clear.

Focusing on the Future

For those interested, I’ve been placing up videos of the Sunday morning class I’m teaching at our local church that addresses the End Times, or Last Days. The title of the series is “Focusing on the Future” and for those interested, they can head over to our Sermon Audio page and begin with Part 2. Unfortunately, we did not have things in place to record the first part, but we provide a bit of a review at the beginning of the second class to bring people up to speed.

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.
