Commentary By: Gordon King
The Ferguson protesters, riots, civil unrest, chaos, confusion and calamity! All across the nation of America we are now seeing the spread of protests and civil unrest, in Los Angeles, Oakland, San Diego, and New York, to name a few major cities.
Did these protests occur spontaneously or were they planned events? Of course they did not just happen spontaneously, they were obviously planned. But by who? By individuals and groups counterproductive to American society that’s who! By people who are led by demonic spirits, of satanic influence.
This is not right, not just, nor civil by any means. In a society with civil obedience, human rights, justice, law and order, we must let our courts decide matters of injustice. This is biblical, this is good, and this is from God. Any other means is by Satan himself! We are to obey the law and those that govern us.
“Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.”
I am in no way saying that protesting in and of itself is a bad thing, on the contrary. However, what I am saying is that many of these so-called protesters have taken things way too far. They are creating an atmosphere of chaos, confusion, anarchy, and violence. Peaceful protest is an American right. Civil disobedience is not from God. We are to obey the laws of the land, unless they are against biblical teachings.
The satanic influence in America and the world is rising quickly. Chaos and confusion are leading the masses into destruction. The blind leading the blind! Without thought, without reason, without God.
I sense the times changing rapidly. A rapid descent away from God. The further away from God, the closer to Satan. This shall lead many down the wrong path, the path of destruction.
Take heed and listen to the Lord God! For He is warning us of the coming calamity. He is warning the world of His wrath to come!
Many, many people are deaf, dumb, and blind to the truth. They cannot see what is right in front of their face, nor can they hear the truth, nor would they understand it if they did hear it. They cannot see the destruction coming upon them, nor do they seem to care.
Where is the justice, where is the peace? Where’s the reasoning behind such madness?! The truth is that it’s not there unless God is in the midst. Unless God is leading, there shall be destruction, there shall be no justice, there shall be no peace! Jesus Christ is the Prince of Peace.
The thoughts, attitudes, and lives of these men and women of the world today have changed drastically. They are unholy, unthankful, unloving, unforgiving, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, etc., just as the apostle Paul tells us that they will be in the end times. He tells us that in the last days perilous time will come.
2 Timothy 3
“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!“
I don’t know about you, but I see this day in and day out, and it’s only getting worse!
Perilous times, the original Greek writing uses the word chalepos (χαλεπός).
Strong’s Concordancechalepos: hard (to do or bear)
Original Word: χαλεπός, ή, όν
Part of Speech: Adjective
Phonetic Spelling: (khal-ep-os’)
Short Definition: hard, harsh, fierce
Definition: (a) hard, troublesome, (b) harsh, fierce.
Perilous times, hard, harsh, fierce, troublesome. Isn’t that what we are now seeing in the world today? Troublesome times, fierce times, hard times?
If I didn’t know what the bible said the last days would be like, then I would be very afraid. Afraid of what is happening to the world that I live in. Afraid of what will happen next!
Many people in the world today are taking a blind eye to what is happening around them, to what is happening to others. They seek their own pleasures, their own lusts, and their own pursuits. They have hardened their hearts to the pain and suffering of those around them. They have taken the truth and twisted it into lies. They spread hatred and discontent, chaos and confusion, the devils main ploy to distract and delude the masses.
Where are our leaders in these trying times? Where is the outcry for peace and justice, for civil obedience? All we hear is lip service, yet nothing from the heart. Nothing with any real meaning or conviction. The twisting of the truth, the turning of good into bad, and bad into good. These are the times, these are the ways of the world my friends.
It’s getting worse, bible prophecy is being fulfilled right before our very eyes! The pieces are falling into place, just as the bible predicted they would. Do not be deceived by the world, by the ways of Satan and his demonic forces.
He shall come wearing sheep’s clothing, dressed in fine linen, speaking half-truths, appealing to the masses. He shall come in the name of peace. He will bring with him an entourage of the same, spewing words which have no meaning, yet seem to be the answer. They shall tell lies and coat them with sugar, they shall serve wine which has been tainted with poison. They will be attractive and well poised, yet shall strike like a viper! Do not be fooled, do not be deceived.
“10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
The time is now to put on the full armor of God, lest you be subdued by the evil one.
“13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.”
Stay strong, be courageous, know right from wrong, discerning of the spirits, righteous in all of your ways. We are the saints of God Almighty! We are His children, under the protection and guidance of our Lord God, given special gifts, supernatural powers through the Holy Spirit, and the ability to withstand the wiles of the devil. We have been chosen to live in the last days my friends. I take it as both an honor and a privilege.
God Bless my friends, until next time!
IF YOU THINK IT,S BAD NOW CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT THESE PEOPLE WILL DO IN THE TRIBULATION PERIOD . ALTHOUGH THE MESSIAH TARRIES I DAILY AWAIT FOR HIS ARRIVAL
You’re right Rainnes, we haven’t seen “anything” yet! This is just a precursor to what is soon coming. Yet those in the midst of it all are asleep!
God bless Rainnes
Well said Gordon. Amen.
“And who is he who will harm you if you become followers of what is good? But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you are blessed. ‘And do not be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled’. But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed. For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil” 1Peter 3:13-17 “Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.” 1Peter 4:12-13
God bless, brethren.
May the Lord our God protect us all as we await the arrival of the Messiah.
Amen to that Emmanuel. Waiting patiently under the wings of God Almighty. In His presence, by His grace, through the blood of Jesus! Stay strong in the faith, walking closely to God, under His protection. God bless my friend!
