These times can be seen as frightening times or incredible times. I choose to see them as incredible times as we witness the Holy Spirit inspired words of God's prophecies being fulfilled. These are incredible times affording us the opportunity to put our money where our faith is and truly stand on God's Word and believe Him to fulfill His promises to us to prosper us, not harm us, to give us hope and a future, for us to pray to Him and He will listen, to seek Him with all our hearts and to be set free. (Jeremiah 29:11-13) The spirit of fear is rife in our world, which we know is not a spirit God gave us, He gave us a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. (2 Tim. 1:7) Thus, this is our opportunity to rise up in Jesus Christ's strength and rebuke the spirit of fear. It's our opportunity to repent of fear and the need to control and micromanage our lives and the lives of our loved ones because we have not given God full authority over our and their lives. God made us for these times; to rise up as true prayer warriors for Jesus Christ and declare His Word and Truth over all the earth, beginning with us declaring His truth over our lives, the lives of our children and family as a whole, our church, country and the world.
This is an opportunity to rise up in Jesus Christ and obey His call to repentance and follow Him. Our world is being overtaken by false prophets and the spirit of Antichrist is rife in society, but we need not fall prey to the deception Satan is spreading over the earth. God has made it clear to us throughout Scripture that He will deliver us, protect us and save us from the mess our world is in. Yes, there is suffering and we have suffered and will experience tribulation and trials, as Jesus Himself did, but if we rest on Him and believe Him, He will go ahead of us and make a way for us just like He did for the Israelites when He parted the Red Sean and the Jordan River. It's time for us to BELIEVE the words of the messengers He sent to not only warn us of what is coming, has arrived, and what will come, but to be prepared and ready to move when He tells us to. God is making a way for us!
Satan wants us to die in our sin without having repented and accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour because he knows we will then be denied access into the Kingdom of Heaven and spend eternity in the Lake of Fire. He wants us to fall for his glamorous and deceitful temptations. He wants us to believe the poisonous honey-coated words of his demonic messengers and deny God's Truth. But let's not! Instead, unlike the disobedient and unbelieving Israelites, let's rise up and walk with God. Let's turn our ears to listen to God's Word and not the lies and interpretations of man. Let us NOT lean on our own understanding and our own "truth" but on God's truth. Let's reject the philosophies and foolish wisdom of man, "....where is the philosopher of this age? Has God not made foolish the wisdom of the world?" (1 Cor. 1:20). Let's reject the intelligence of man; "For it is written: 'I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate." (1 Cor. 1:19) Let's turn away from the words of man lest we be deceived by their fancy words, ideas and false solutions and focus instead ONLY on God's Word - "See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than of Christ." (Col. 2:8)
Instead, let's call on the Lord, and "...He will answer us and tell us great and unsearchable things we do not know." (Jeremiah 33:3) Let us BELIEVE Christ and follow Him because "....He is the head over every power and authority." (Col 2:10) Why must we BELIEVE and lean ONLY on God's Word? Because "The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through counterfeit miracles (vaccines for one), signs and wonders that serve the lie (false peace and empty solutions), and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing (those who are unsaved and reject Jesus Christ as the ONLY Authority and Saviour of the world). They perish because because they refused to love the truth and to be saved. For this reason God sent them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness." (2 Thes. 2:9-12) Words in brackets are my input.
Rebellion against God by choosing to believe the demons posing as new age and religious gurus, ascended masters, benevolent angels and spirit guides WILL RESULT in eternal condemnation because it's choosing to side with Satan. Satan is already deceiving millions of people with his fake religion known as the New Age religion which has seeped into the hearts and homes of gullible non-believers and believers alike. He is deceiving people into trusting and believing in humans for cures and solutions to the current global pandemic, and by causing chaos and crippling the world economy, setting humanity up to receive the the lawless one. Billions will buy into the deception because they have chosen to focus on man's wisdom, traditions, intelligence and philosophies and not on God's proven Word of Truth! "For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of His mouth and destroy by the splendour of His coming." (2 Thes. 2:7-8)
It's time to pick a side - Jesus Christ or Satan. There are ONLY TWO SIDES! If you reject Jesus Christ you have chosen Satan! Reject the lies of the enemy trying to convince you that God's love will result in everyone entering the Kingdom of Heaven. Reject the lies that the devil does not exist. He does. The Bible tells us so. Resist the desire to believe empty promises of peace and prosperity that do not align with scripture! "For you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, 'Peace and safety,' destruction will come on them suddenly, as labour pains on a pregnant woman and they will not escape." (1 Thes. 5:2-3) Refuse to believe and accept "star brothers and sisters" and the disclosure of advanced technology being the saviours we've been waiting for. ONLY Jesus Christ saves. Jesus Christ Himself said: "For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible even the elect. See I have told you in advance." (Matt. 24:24-25) We have been warned. Our Father God Almighty through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit have warned us
