Commentary By: Gordon King
Jesus tells us that true believers will endure persecution. Well, we sure see that around the world. Christians being imprisoned, tortured, and murdered in the name of Jesus Christ. But what about here in America? We don’t see Christians being persecuted as they are around the world.
Christians are being persecuted in America, maybe not through murder and imprisonment, at least not yet. But believe me when I say that Satan is very busy in the United States of America! Not only with Christians, but with America at large.
There are evil spirits moving upon the American Christian church, and against all Christians in America. These spirits are causing division, hatred, and demoralizing acts among believers. Yes, there are many believers who are being deceived and led astray by these spirits.
For example, there are churches now not only accepting of gay marriage, but actually performing gay marriages in their church! Some of these churches even have gay pastors. This is not biblical, nor from God.
There are many Christians who are now denouncing Israel and the Jews as God’s chosen people. Instead of supporting and praying for Israel, they are condemning Israel. This is against what God calls us to do.
There are way too many Christians condemning other believers. Instead of acting out of love and humility, they are acting out in hatred and condemnation. Instead of building up faith, of encouraging and loving, they are tearing down faith, causing doubt and confusion. To treat another believer in such a way is not from the Holy Spirit, but from an evil spirit. Jesus did not tell us to hate one another, but to love, to act with kindness and gentleness.
Apostasy in the church has begun. There are churches in America that believe we worship the same God as the Muslims. This is blasphemy and apostasy! They are melding the two religions into one. Don’t believe me, just google it.
America is being saturated with demonic spirits. The downfall of America has begun.
The increase in evil spirits in America is on the rise. They are quickly out to search and destroy. Just take a look at our society. Morality is on a fast downward spiral.
Our children are being indoctrinated with false beliefs and have immoral role models. They are taught in school that evolution is the truth, and not to pray in school or in public, that the bible is just a fairy tale. Atheism is on the rise.
They have role models such as Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus, who are anything but moral role models. Each day we hear news about either of the two committing another immoral act in the public eye.
Sexual immorality is at an all time high in America. Turn on the t.v. and you will be hard pressed to see a commercial without a sexual overtone. Sexual pleasures are not only accepted, they are encouraged. Just flip through the channels and see what’s going on out there. Sex, sex, sex, anything goes! Lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of righteousness.
The decline of marriage as a sacred institution has fallen sharply. I don’t know how many women there are having babies out-of-wedlock in America, but as I look around me everyday, I see many. And they keep having children! Gay marriage is now part of the American culture. What was once sacred and holy has turned into a mockery of what God has intended it’s true purpose for.
We are now seeing an increase in heinous acts of violence. Children murdering their siblings, mother, and father. Parents murdering their spouses and children. Children being locked up in basements, tortured, unfed. People being murdered in cold blood on the streets for no reason whatsoever! The “knock-out” game, where an individual or group, walks up to a complete stranger and punches them until they are knocked out cold. This so-called game has claimed the lives of many of its victims.
I believe that there are many true, bible believing Christians living in America today. Thank God for that. This is the only reason things have not gotten much worse, much quicker. God is listening to our prayers. However, God will only hold back for a short while. He will show the world that He is God Almighty! Things will get much worse than they are right now, this is only the beginning.
The beginning of sorrows, birth pangs, the signs of the times! Let us not slumber, let us not succumb to the wiles of the devil. We must beware, be on guard at all times. For Satan is a crafty one, with many lying wonders. He is the father of all lies!
Until next time, God Bless my friends!
