Why? Because they love the world more than God.
Because today, much of Christianity focuses on being successful in this world
As if this world were a benign place,
Rather than the wicked, EVIL place that it is in reality.
The Commercial Gospel is the most popular gospel in America today
And it is a false gospel.
Christians have gathered around themselves preachers
To tell them what their itching ears want to hear [2 timothy 4:3-4];
How to be successful in this wicked world;
How to think positively.
Positive thinking is not Faith in Christ.
Thinking positively about a world that is the enemy of Christ is not Faith.
Thinking positively about yourself is not Faith in Christ.
Loving God and His Christ Jesus with all your heart, soul, mind and strength
Is Faith in God.
Giving up your life in this life to gain His LIFE is Faith in God.
You see, contrary to the Commercial Gospel,
There is a world to OVERCOME.
You have been given this life to OVERCOME this world.
To see if you are worthy of the Kingdom He offers every person.
That is the TEST of Faith.
Faith is the Victory that which OVERCOMES this world. (1 John 5:4)
If you do not OVERCOME this world you remain lost and dead in your sin,
As the whole world is lost and dead in SIN without Faith in Christ Jesus
America is today at war with Christ Jesus.
The President of the United States is anti-Christ.
The Democrat Party, the Progressives, the Liberals
And many Republicans, etc., are anti-Christ.
Government in America is wicked and EVIL at every level
And growing worse everyday.
Most of the so called, “Church of God,” is silent about this reality.
They are too busy proclaiming their Commercial Gospel.
They are friends with the world and cannot speak against it.
They will go along to get along and will go to Hell because of this
Along with all who are seduced by their false gospel.
Unless you have died with Christ you cannot live with Christ.
Only those who have died with Christ are freed from sin. (Romans 6:7)
This life is a spiritual struggle. The apostle Paul sums it up:
Finally, be strong in the Lord and His Mighty Power.
Put on the Full Armor of God
So that you can take your stand against the Devil's Schemes.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,
But against the Rulers, against the Authorities,
Against the Powers of this Dark World
And against the Spiritual Forces of EVIL in the heavenly realms.
The Spiritual Forces of EVIL in the heavenly realms are SUPERNATURAL.
The only person who can stand against them is Christ Jesus;
Christ in you is your only hope of Glory. (Colossians 1:27)
Without Christ living in and through you, you are POWERLESS against
The Spiritual Forces of EVIL in the heavenly realms.
Today, ALL the leaders in the world are Faithless, and arrogant
And are therefore powerless against the SUPERNATURAL forces of EVIL
In the heavenly realms.
They have ALL rejected God, His Christ Jesus and His Word.
They are ALL taking the world to RUIN, just as they did in the days of Noah.
Those who claim the Name of Christ who do not understand this
Are already defeated.
See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples,
But if you will allow Him:
The Lord rises upon you and His Glory appears over you. (Isaiah 60:2)
At the return of Christ Jesus, He will destroy the SHROUD
That enfolds ALL the peoples, the sheet that covers ALL nations. (Isaiah 25:7)
Today, the Lord is MEASURING those who claim His Name.
Those found to be of the world--
Those who have not worshiped Him in Spirit and in Truth,
And have chosen to remained in the Outer Court,
Will be excluded from protection during The Great Tribulation
And will be trampled on for three and one-half years by the unbelievers.
He [the Beast] was given Power to make war against the saints
And to conquer them. (Revelation 13:7)
As I watched, this horn [the Beast of Revelation]
Was waging war against the saints and defeating them. (Daniel 7:21)
It will be for time, times and half a time [three and one-half years].
When the power of the holy people has been finally broken,
All these things will be completed. (Daniel 12:7)
He [the Beast of Revelation] will speak against the Most High
And oppress His saints and try to change set times and the laws.
The saints will be handed over to him for a time, times and half a time
[For three and one-half years]. (Daniel 7:25)
The angel told the apostle John:
These are they who have come out of The Great Tribulation;
They have washed their robes
And made them white in the blood of the Lamb. (Revelation 7:9-17)
Let no one beguile you in any way, for that day [The Day of the Lord]
Will not come except the apostasy comes first—that is, Unless the [predicted]
Great Falling Away of those who have professed to be Christians has come--
And the man of Lawlessness (sin) is revealed,
Who is the son of doom (of perdition), [Tim. 4:1; Dan. 7:25; 8:25.]
(2 Thessalonians 2:3 AMP)
Scripture is clear, there will be a Great Falling Away;
And many saints will go through The Great Tribulation.
Yet, it is also clear that there will be those who do not.
Listen to Christ Jesus:
Since you have kept My command to endure patiently,
I will keep you from the Hour Of Trial
That is going to come upon the whole world
To TEST those who live on the earth.
I AM coming SOON. Hold on to what you have,
So that no one will take your crown.
Him who OVERCOMES I will make a pillar in the Temple of My God.
Never again will he leave it.
I will write on him the Name of My God
And the Name of the City of My God, The New Jerusalem,
Which is coming down out of Heaven from My God;
And I will also write on him My New Name.
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the Churches.
Today, the world is raging against God, rushing toward oblivion. (Psalm 2)
America is being ground to powder because of her SIN against God.
Save yourself from this Corrupt Generation! (Acts 2:40)
As God has written, so shall it be! Hallelujah! Maranatha!
Father, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as in Heaven!
