Greatest Need

I think of Bill now. I cannot help wondering of course if there was more I could have said or done to help him realize his need for Jesus. I am confident that God – who loves Bill far more than I ever could – has given Bill every opportunity he needed. Beyond this, God is the only righteous Judge and will judge accordingly, not just Bill, but all of us.

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.

Harsh Love

Authentic righteous zeal can only result from the heart that fears (offending) God. If it does not stem from that starting point, it is a put on; pretend. While that may look good to others, it does not impress God because He sees the heart.

Apostates and Impostors

Psychology teaches, as Cloud points out, that people need to learn to love themselves more than they already do. Psychologists believe and teach that people who fail to love themselves (or they’d say, have the  proper amount of self-esteem), are causing great harm to themselves and others because of their emotional bondage to a flawed ideology. That flawed ideology is the biblical concept of depravity, sin and rebellion against God. This is actually the root of Satan’s first temptation, teaching Eve that she needed to love herself more, to take care of her own felt needs by rebelling against God.

Simple Way to Understand Fear of the Lord

The goal of every Christian – I believe – should be to have such a desire to never OFFEND God that this desire produces within us the necessary ability to not offend Him. It simply makes more sense to me to understand the fear of the Lord in terms of desiring not to offend God rather than simply the more general “fear of the LORD.”

Laodicean Church Age is NOW

Society is inundated with pronounced, growing abject evil that is being normalized and we don’t understand why people cannot see it. We need to remind ourselves of Paul’s words about God sending the world a strong delusion so that they will believe the lie (2 Thessalonians 2:11). The “lie” here likely refers to all lies that usher in the final global kingdom to be ruled over by Antichrist. This strong delusion is going to be a major impetus in bringing forth the NWO and Antichrist. We cannot force people to see truth, but of course we need to tell them anyway.

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.
