What is going on in the World today?
It is simple,
Satan is making his final move,
He is preparing the World to receive his son,
The Beast of Revelation, the Antichrist (Revelation 13),
As Scripture has foretold.
We are living in the Last of the Last Day of Time,
Soon Christ Jesus will return
And put an End to this World in its Present Form
(1 Corinthians 7:31; 1 John 2:17),
At the End of the Three and One-half years
Of God's Great Tribulation (Revelation).
What are the conditions of the World
At the Time Of The End, as foretold by Scripture?
Christ Jesus tells us about his in Matthew 24.
And one pronounced feature will be:
“Because of the increase of Wickedness,
The love of Most will grow cold.” (24:12)
He also tells us that it will be like the Days of Noah:
“The Lord saw how great
Man's Wickedness on the earth had become,
And every inclination of the thoughts of his heart
WAS ONLY EVIL ALL THE TIME.” (Genesis 6:5)
“God saw how Corrupt the Earth had become,
For All the people on Earth had Corrupted their ways.
So God said to Noah,
'I am going to put and End to All people,
FOR THE EARTH IS FILLED WITH VIOLENCE BECAUSE OF THEM.'”
These Scriptures Define the World we are living in today.
The Reality, that even many Christians do not want to admit,
Is that Satan Rules this Wicked World,
But Scripture tells us Plainly that he does.
(1 John 5:19; Luke 4:6)
What is happening in the Church of God today?
There is the a Great Apostasy Scripture has foretold.
Christ Jesus told us:
“At that time Many will Turn Away from the Faith
And will Betray and Hate each other,
Many False Prophets will appear and Deceive Many people.”
(Matthew 24:10, 11)
Let no one Deceive or Beguile you in any way,
For That Day will not come Except the Apostasy come first--
That is, unless the [predicted] Great Falling Away
Of those Christians
Who have Professed to be Christians has come--
AND THE MAN OF LAWLESSNESS (SIN) IS REVEALED,
WHO IS THE SON OF DOOM (OF PERDITION),
[1 Tim. 4:1; Dan. 7:25; 8:25.]
Who Opposes and exalts himself so Proudly and Insolently
AGAINST ALL THAT IS CALLED GOD
OR IS WORSHIPED
[Even to his actually] taking his Seat in the Temple of God,
PROCLAIMING THAT HE HIMSELF IS GOD.
[Dan. 11:36, 37; Ezek. 28:2.]
(2 Thessalonians 2:3, 4, AMP)
The Prophet Daniel describes this Falling Away:
And the Host [the chosen people]
And strength were given to [the Wicked Horn]
Together with the Continual Burnt Offering
(The worship of God),
BECAUSE OF THE TRANSGRESSION [OF GOD'S PEOPLE]--
THEIR ABOUNDING IRREVERENCE, UNGODLINESS
AND LAKE OF PIETY.
And Righteousness and Truth were Cast Down to the Ground,
And [the Wicked Horn] accomplished this
[By Divine Permission] and Prospered.
(Daniel 8:12, AMP)
What does the Lord say to His Church at this time:
Because you have Guarded and Kept My Word
OF PATIENT ENDURANCE--
HAVE HELD FAST THE LESSON OF MY PATIENCE
WITH THE EXPECTANT ENDURANCE THAT I GIVE YOU--
I ALSO WILL KEEP YOU (SAFE)
FROM THE HOUR OF TRIAL (TESTING)
WHICH IS COMING ON THE WHOLE WORLD,
TO TRY THOSE WHO DWELL UPON THE EARTH.
I am Coming Quickly;
HOLD FAST WHAT YOU HAVE,
SO THAT NO ONE MAY ROB YOU AND DEPRIVE YOU
OF YOUR CROWN.
HE WHO OVERCOMES (IS VICTORIOUS),
I WILL MAKE HIM A PILLAR IN THE SANCTUARY OF MY GOD;
HE SHALL NEVER BE PUT OUT OF IT
OR GO OUT OF IT,
AND I WILL WRITE ON HIM THE NAME OF MY GOD,
AND THE NAME OF THE CITY OF MY GOD,
THE NEW JERUSALEM
WHICH DESCENDS FROM MY GOD
OUT OF HEAVEN,
AND MY OWN NEW NAME.
[Isa. 62:2; Ezek. 48:35]
HE WHO CAN HEAR,
LET HIM LISTEN TO AND HEED WHAT THE SPIRIT SAYS
TO THE ASSEMBLIES (THE CHURCHES).
(Revelation 3:10-13, AMP)
