Islamic invaders in Germany, Sweden, Denmark etc raping women in the open during national celebrations is lawlessness.
Politicians refusing to enforce national laws (like immigration law) is lawlessness
Politicians issuing executive orders to bypass the law is lawlessness
'urban youths' flash mob robbing stores with no repercussions, no condemnation from the government or the media is lawlessness.
Attempting to turn men into women and women into men is lawlessness (natural law)
One country waging war on every other country for whatever reason it wants to in violation of international law is lawlessness.
This world does not have a problem with racism, nor does it have a problem with politicians, it has a problem with sin, which is what? Lawlessness:
1 John 3:4 Everyone who sins breaks the law; in fact, sin is lawlessness.
The startling fact is we have not even begun to see lawlessness in this world but it is coming. How so? Two things are on the way that will take lawlessness to the next level:
1. 2 Thess 2:7For 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
2. . 8And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.
Believe it or not, as bad as things are today lawlessness is actually being restrained. What is coming is a removal of that restraint and the introduction of the man of lawlessness, also known as the man of sin (the anti-Christ).
So what? So this world seems rather perplexed at how to fix all its problems. One the one hand it outright rejected the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the Word and at the same time they have embraced lawlessness. The problem for most people is they want their own personal brand of lawlessness. You know, the just for me, I'm the exception brand of lawlessness but they dont want all the attendant consequences. Unfortunately this world, nor the eternity outside this world was built that way. Decisions have consequences. Choose lawlessness, live with the consequences.
Some people are protesting governments and immigration and all the things they dont like about the lawless world they have chosen. Does anyone believe thats going to work? I can guarantee with 100% certainty that protesting and fighting the government is not going to change a thing for the better. How can I be so sure? Right here:
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
England (which has been overrun by Islamic hordes) and Germany (which has been overrun by Islamic hordes), and Sweden (which has been overrun by Islamic hordes) etc you get the point they all lost their battles against their women being raped in the open and their men being silenced by their own governments years before a single Islamic invader stepped foot on their shores. How so?
The battle was lost each and every time the common people choose against the Lord Jesus Christ and His kingdom and for this world and the god of this world Satan who is the lawless one. It was not one decision, it was decision after decision after decision stacked and piled on top of one another forming into a tsunami wave of lawlessness which they are all now experiencing. Not to pick on a single country because America is right behind them as are all the nations of this world.
The people of this world if they had spiritual sense and really wanted to fight would be dressed in sackcloth and ashes, gathered together in public places weeping and crying out to the Lord God in broken humility. What we see is far from that. The 'pastors' and priests are content to ignore the avalanche of evil/lawlessness burying the people of this world. Their answer is to "vote for change" and "get involved" with the political process which tells me they have the spiritual sense of a piece of drywall.
Anyone (pastors and priests especially) that tells you its your duty to vote this year is sold out to this world:
1 John 4:5 They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them.
How many Christians do you guess are going to actually vote for the anti-Christ when he shows up? Does anyone really believe he will show up with horns on his head and declare he is the anti-Christ? Not likely. He will be presented as the savior of this world, exactly what the people of this world are looking for about now and how pray tell is a Christian going to explain to the Lord (whether they knew it or not) that they voted for the anti-Christ? "But, but, Lord I didn't know!!"
Matt 7:21“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
Bottom line? Sure
"getting involved" with politics=worthless
Physically fighting the government and all its oppression and lawlessness=worthless
This world has a spiritual problem that is manifesting in physical reality. Once Christian countries that are now being overrun but Babylon and Assyria (Iraq and Syria) sowed the seeds of their own demise years ago. Read your Old Testament, how did the Lord punish His people over and over again in the past? He sent the Assyrian, the Babylonian and the Philistine. There is nothing new under the sun:
Ecclesiastes 1:9What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing
new under the sun.
End time Babylon is now spreading its wings over this world. You see it and hear it in tv shows and movies, we see it in the Islamic invasion of western countries and we read about it in the pages of Isaiah, Jeremiah and Revelation.
Spiritual problems are resolved with spiritual solutions. Any so called spiritual person (the clergy especially) that suggests a worldly solution to the spiritual problems we face should be dismissed outright. How does one cope in a world that is being overrun by Babylon? The Lord has given us the example of Jeremiah:
Jer 40:1The word came to Jeremiah from the Lord after Nebuzaradan commander of the imperial guard had released him at Ramah. He had found Jeremiah bound in chains among all the captives from Jerusalem and Judah who were being carried into exile to Babylon. 2When the commander of the guard found Jeremiah, he said to him, “The Lord your God decreed this disaster for this place. 3And now the Lord has brought it about; he has done just as he said he would. All this happened because you people sinned against the Lord and did not obey him. 4But today I am freeing you from the chains on your wrists. Come with me to Babylon, if you like, and I will look after you; but if you do not want to, then don’t come. Look, the whole country lies before you; go wherever you please.” 5However, before Jeremiah turned to go,a Nebuzaradan added, “Go back to Gedaliah son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, whom the king of Babylon has appointed over the towns of Judah, and live with him among the people, or go anywhere else you please.”
Then the commander gave him provisions and a present and let him go. 6So Jeremiah went to Gedaliah son of Ahikam at Mizpah and stayed with him among the people who were left behind in the land.
Jeremiah was a man who walked with God. In these days, in our time we must also be men and women who walk with their God. We must do exactly precisely what He tells us to do, when He tells us to do it. We must walk in faith, we must pray continually. The time for half measures and playing with the world is over. We are in the midst of a spiritual war and the most dangerous place in any war is right in the middle between both sides of the fight.
grace and peace
