How Evil Can Society Become?

Selfishness abounds. Violence in society stems from that. The more people seek to elevate self, the greater the violence in society will become. We can argue until we’re blue in the face about the fluctuation of crime and why this exists. We can talk about whether stronger gun laws would help or if the ability to carry a weapon becoming easier would help. In the end, it doesn’t matter because what we are seeing taking place in society is the growing phenomenon of relentless selfish pursuits. The more selfish people become, the less they will care about anyone other than themselves.

It’s Not All About Giants (Nephilim)

Society has veered off the path of morality, good taste and common sense, giving into the darker aspects of life, that are constantly being whispered in the ear.

2012, Devils, Demons and Nephilim..oh my!

Lately, I have been reading a number of books that delve into the area of the Nephilim, found in the Bible in Genesis 6.  What is interesting of course is that the Bible really does not say a whole lot about it.  They are mentioned and since their presence occurs prior to the global Flood of which only Noah and his family along with all the animals were saved, it becomes clear that it was like due to their presence on the earth, that many became so evil.  This level of evil required God to take drastic action.  Everything had to go since there was nothing left untouched by the presence of the Nephilim, except Noah.

What I particularly find fascinating is the fact that even though God destroyed the earth, killing all human life, these same type of beings were found again in the book of Numbers, when the nation of Israel first approached the Land of Canaan.  They were supposed to go in and conquer the land and God was also going to use Israel as His arm of judgment.  Instead, out of the 12 spies that were sent into the land to scope it out, only two came back – Joshua and Caleb – with a report which indicated that they should go into the land to conquer it, because they believed that the Lord would surely give them the victory.

The other 10 spies basically stated that to go in and try to conquer the land would be a suicide mission.  In the fact, the text states that the 10 spies said, “there we saw the Nephilim (the sons of Anak, who come from the Nephilim), and we seemed to ourselves like grasshoppers, and so we seemed to them,” (Numbers 13:33).  So here again is the use of the word “Nephilim,” the same word that was used in Genesis 6.  So the 10 spies saw the outward appearance of these giants, and in spite of what the Lord had continually done for Israel, and how He had overcome every obstacle for them, they could not see beyond the outward.  Because of the report of the 10 spies, the people sided with the 10 spies and moaned, groaned and complained about it to Moses.  In fact, in the next chapter – Numbers 14:10 – we see that the people were literally ready to kill Moses!  It was only the Lord’s direct intervention that kept Moses alive.

Moving ahead a few thousand years to the life of Christ, we read His words as He explained to His disciples what it would be like in the end times, prior to His return.  We find the text in the Olivet Discourse found in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21.  What is interesting here is how Jesus states that during the time prior to His return, the days will be very reminiscent of the days of Noah.  Christ elaborates in Matthew 24:38-39 by stating, “For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.”

So on one hand, Christ is saying that life will go on as normal for most.  They will not see anything that makes them thing something strange is happening.  But if we take our cue from Genesis 6, could it be possible that the time before Christ’s return will see a return of the Nephilim to the earth?  If you talk to New Agers and Occultists, the testimony of “transmissions” they’ve received over the years points to this very fact.  Interestingly enough, in a book I am just putting the finishing touches on titled Some of Satan’s Major Lies Seen as Truth, I discuss one aspect of church doctrine that has been denied for some time; the Rapture.  Many within Christendom do not believe for one reason or another that the Rapture is going to occur.  They do not see it taught in Scripture and because of that, they do not agree that it is an actual event.

Interestingly enough though, there are many within the New Age movement who have been taught this very doctrine, by aliens!  Sounds bizarre?  Of course it does, until you begin to see that these aliens may in fact be none other than demons and fallen angels masquerading as intelligent beings from other worlds.  These beings who have the ear of many within the New Age movement, blatantly teach that one day in the not-too-distant future, a major evacuation of upwards of 20 million people will be taken from the earth in “the twinkling of an eye.”  In fact, what they teach is very similar to what the Bible teaches and they use the verbiage from the Bible to drive their point home to these lost individuals who believe that “we are all god because god is in all and through all.”

The question then becomes, Why on earth would Satan waste time teaching LOST individuals a doctrine that is absolute fantasy?!” There can only be one reason; he knows it will occur.  On one hand, he is teaching those who are lost that the event will happen, and at the same time, is getting the word out among many within Christendom that the event will not occur!  He is playing both ends against the middle.  If the event was not going to occur, there would be absolutely no good reason for teaching those within the New Age movement that it was going to occur.  When it does occur, these folks will simply understand the reason for the event’s occurrence, which is that the 20 million people who have been taken, were evacuated because they are holding the planet and its citizens back from evolving to the next evolutionary and spiritual level!  For those who may doubt this, do some research on the New Age movement and their teachings.

Satan knows his time is short and he has only one card left to play in the form of the Antichrist.  He is setting the stage (with God’s permission) to mount a fullscale offensive against God the Son, as He returns at the end of the Tribulation/Great Tribulation.  We know it will not succeed, but he has to try anyway.

These are some interesting times; moreso than possibly any other period of history, due to the proximity with the events of Matthew 24.  Some things have already occurred and each day draws us closer to the end.  Just as it was in the days of Noah, when he preached for 120 years that the end was coming, so is it today.  Noah preached and people laughed.  We preach and people laugh, saying “Where is the promise of His coming?” (cf. 2 Peter 3:4)

Psalm 2 informs us that God has the last laugh, but even then, He offers salvation to those who recognize their need for it.  The time is short and even if the Tribulation/Great Tribulation is 1,000 years away from today, no one knows when their last day on this earth will be.  It seems to me that it is too much to risk by putting off a decision that will make a difference in eternity.

Many within this world are currently looking to 2012 as the final countdown and last hurrah of present earth.  They believe an end will come (though not the biblical end), and a new beginning with occur after that.  The truth is that the end will come; the end of this age.  Christ returns and sets up His kingdom from which He will rule for 1,000 years.  Those who are His share that time and forever after that with Him.  Those who are not, will not.  It is very simple and very plain.  Those who ignore the warnings are putting their very souls at risk.  I pray that you will recognize your need for Him as Savior.
