Increased Sin revealed

Sin

Commentary By: Gordon King

I have recently had a sense of increased sin around me and in the world.  I feel as though the Lord has revealed things to me which were hidden in the past.  I am sensing and seeing more sin around me then I have previously.

Is this true for other Christians out there?  Is anyone else seeing and sensing more sin?  I mean really, not just through the papers or on the news, but when you take a trip into town or are around people in the world.  I don’t know what others are experiencing, I can only speak for myself.

I feel the presence of evil, and the deception from the evil one.  I can see the evil one twisting and distorting the truth, and presenting evil as good.

These evil spirits are here and they are out to destroy the works of the Lord.  They seek to bring down those that love Him.  However, nothing shall harm us without first being allowed by God Almighty!  They shall tempt us and try to provoke us into falling away from the Lord.  This is why we must stay strong and follow the Lord daily.

I believe that the Lord will be unveiling more and more of the sin in the world the closer to His return. 

I also feel the Lord revealing more of Himself to His children at this time. 

I am sensing God’s presence more and more each day.  Maybe it’s because of the recent loss of my Dad, I don’t know why.  But I feel Him more, and sense Him more.  I feel His power more.  I trust Him more, and my faith has increased.  I know that if I ask something in His name that it will be done, according to His will and His purpose.

I’m not a bible scholar, I never went to seminary school.  I’m just a man, a saved man.  I try to love God with all of my heart, but I know that I don’t, I don’t think that anyone truly can.  But I try.  I thank Him for all that He is, all He has done, and He will do.  I worship and praise Him alone.  I ask for His help and guidance in all things.

The Lord uses those who humble themselves before Him.  Those who love Him and seek Him first in all things.  Those who put aside their arrogance and pride.  He uses the meek and the mild for His purpose, for His will.  I don’t know what the Lord will have me do, nor where He will lead me next.  But, I do know that He is working on me as I write.  That He does have a purpose for me in His will.  This may sound strange to you, but I can feel Him working on me and in me.  I can feel Him changing me for the better, to be more Christ-like.

The Lord has a plan and a purpose for all those that put their trust in Jesus Christ.  For those who love Him and seek Him first in all things.  He will mold you, guide you, and give you a purpose according to His will.  This is why we are here, to perform God’s will. 

Remember, in the Lord’s prayer: “Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven”.

As Christians we are children of the living God Almighty.  We are the ones God has chosen to perform His will, on earth as it is in heaven.  As it is in heaven: worshiping, honoring and praising God, bearing the fruit of the Spirit in love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  Spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ.  This is the will of God on earth and in heaven!

God bless my friends, and may the good Lord fill you with the fruit of His Spirit!  Amen

  1. How right you are, Gordon. The closer you get to the Lord the more sensitive you get to things around you. And see/feel things differently then the world. I agree with you evil IS out in all forms. And the globe is getting more evil. Shows God’s words are true and faithful. We are living in the end times. The deceiver is doing everything he can to destroy God’s creation; for he knows his time is short.
    I feel the closer you are and get to emulating the Lord, the more the evil one and his minions attack you in the most sensitive or personal areas of your life. The most vulnerable areas in your life, like your child(ren). If he can’t have you personally then he’ll get you through other means if he can. A strong conviction in the Good Lord is needed. Faith and trust in the Lord is the only way to handle these attacks. “…He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” 1John 4:4 I’m finding I need to trust more, have greater faith to let Him handle the things I can’t in duress times. To hang in there no matter what happens. I might not instantly see His work (prayers not answered immediately) does not mean He’s not working it out. Patience is needed in a world that revolves on instant gratification. We’re all guilty of wanting a solution to the problem now. Yet, God works in His own timetable. I know this in my heart. I have a situation now with my only child who tells me she’s genderfluid, sometimes she feels like a girl that she was born as, other times she feels like a boy. I’m to address her as ‘he’ or ‘they’…?… Is getting disrespectful if you disrespect her choice. And too boot has friends who also have this identity crisis’… Her friends are good kids, good grades, no drugs, no staying out late, etc. Just this gender identity. And society accepts and even encourages it. These kids seem to gravitate to each other for support. Tried counselling, more harm then good came out of that. No offense to counselors in general, but it didn’t work for her. I love my kid, always encouraged her to be her own person, but this is a whole new level, a whole new issue. And I’m left dumbfounded… She was raised a good Christian and is, except for this issue. I thank God she doesn’t want to change her sex that much she’s told me. Yet, she keeps telling me God loves her as she is… And I tell her He does love you, the person not the sin you’re committing by denying the times the gender you were born with. She replies “I’m preaching too much, tone it down”… Again I love my child (a HS junior). And it’s disheartening… I’ve given it to the Lord and He has given me strength to continual each day. Some days are good and I feel I have her back and others are not so good. I have to remember it’s a work in progress. I have to have a stronger conviction of my faith. And not give up, to continue praying for her soul and her friends. I can’t deny her her friends, I don’t want her to be another statistic. But I feel time is so very short. I don’t want to loose her. Yet I find myself loosing her every time I bring up the topic. I have to repeat to myself patience, patience.
    What’s happening to our youth? Where parents are disowning their kids, where kids are committing suicide, the list of evil is ever growing. How is it that society has to change it’s Christian values for the majority apparently, who think otherwise..?.. It’s like a portal has been open and all kinds of evil ‘stuff’ is hitting the fan. The Lord is so, so close for this deceiver is roaring his ugly head fiercely.
    I pray Dear Lord help the children of the world in every situation they find themselves, I pray Lord gather them up and change their circumstances. I pray for parents (myself included) to have the wisdom to know what to say and do, I pray for understanding and love to flow generously, I pray God to help us all to ‘follow You more closely, see and hear You more clearly’ in these uncertain times. In Jesus’ name. Amen
    Thank you Gordon for letting me share. The Lord wanted me to share this delicate matter and get it off my shoulders’.
    God bless us all.

  2. Oh I definately feel that sin has increased. Raising two teenage daughters I am constantly floored at what our teenagers are bombarded with day after day. Times have really changed and not for the better.
    Personally I have encountered more frequent attacks from the devil. If I let my guard down by not reading the word or praying I find myself way more open to temptation. What I’m trying to say is before if I went awhile without reading the bible but just prayed things went fine. Now it’s like a constant battle and if I do not have on my armor and constantly read Gods word I am bloodied and cut down before I even get out of bed for the day. This is how I know for sure that something big is happening in the spiritual realm. I have never before felt such urgency to be prepared, to share Gods love and to forgive instantly. When my savior comes to get us I want as many people possible to be caught up with him to avoid the darkness that is coming to take over. Just the little glimpses now are too much for me. Teenage suicide is at an all time high. Drugs, sex and violence are now accepted as normal. Please add this younger generation to your prayers as I feel that are especially being targeted.
    God Bless you all

  3. Thanks so much SweetJava for sharing! I am so sorry to hear about the situation with your daughter. I believe that you are right, if the evil ones cannot attack us personally they go through our children or whatever area they can. What really amazes me is that not only your daughter feeling like this but also her friends! Is this what our school systems are teaching our children?

    I know that this must be heartbreaking for you. You must feel helpless, although you know the Lord is with you and for you. But, I also believe that God is faithful and true, and that He does listen to our prayers and feels our pain. We must continue in prayer for our children, for their safety, protection, and salvation.

    I pray for the protection and safety of your daughter. I pray for the Lord God to enlighten her with wisdom and understanding. I pray for the Holy Spirit to give her visions and dreams of the truth, and for angels to minister to her in truth and righteousness. I pray for her salvation and increased faith in God Almighty. In Jesus precious name I pray, Amen

    God bless SweetJava! Maranatha

  4. Thanks for your share Rebecca! Yes, we need to be in the word of God daily, but we must also begin and end our day with Him, and keep Him with us throughout the day. These are perilous times and we must be ready. Donn the full armor of God and stay ready to fight off the firey darts of the devil and his minions.

    I believe that you are so right. Satan and his demons are attacking our children and we must pray for them in safety, protection, truth, and salvation!

    God bless Rebecca! Maranatha

  5. Thank you Gordon for your prayers and your understanding. Very much needed at this time.
    I agree with you, when God was taken out of schools (plus) for a more progressive agenda the world goes down a deep and deceiving road. And here we are…
    In defense of the schools their adminstrations can’t do much, their hands are tied with it’s ‘politically correct’ policy this country has adopted. The ones who stand up are chastised and sent packing their bags, that most are scared to make the attempt. Sad what this ideology has produced. Our kids our confused and no good role models to emulate. Yes, prayers are needed for our children, they are the future and if we dont stop this madness it will get worst. The Holy Scriptures’ tell us this, yet it also tells us to stand in the face of it with full reliance on Him. Evil is getting more acceptable as time goes on, we must stand on the word of God with our full armour on.
    Our Good Lord is coming, we are repeating history but at a much worst level then Noah’s time. I’m hanging in there with the Lord on my side and prayers, for anything is possible with Him to guide us. Again thank you for your prayers. God bless. Maranatha!

  6. Dear sweet Java,please do deliverance prayers.Bind the spirit of homosexuality,disrespect,spirit causing blindness to God’s word etc in Jesus name.I just realised,I simply have to do this for my husband also.For we war against principalities,powers of darkness;not against flesh.Lately,I have minimised contact with husband,except for his will,but praying in the spirit (tongues) as far as I can and led to.The more I react in the flesh, the more demons use him to curse or lead me to angriness.The fear,anxiety etc we have in the flesh is also not of God.That is the one leading to arguments and disheartening us,to lose hope.Rest in the Lord and get relenished.Don’t lose heart.God bless you.

  7. Dear sweet java,please do deliverance prayers for your daughter.Bind the spirit of homosexuality,disobedience,blindness to Word of God etc.You have legal rights over her in spritual realm as well.Give her to the Lord everyday and ask Him to lead her.I just realised I have to do this with my husband also.Lately.I just keep praying in tongues and have minimised contact with him except barely necessary.The more I react in the flesh,the more demons use us to argue ,to cause division,angriness,guilt etc.Worry,fear,anxiety are not from the Lord.Rest in the Lord.”Not by might or power but by My Spirit it shall be done”.God bless you.

  8. Thank you Nithya for your words and for sharing your own struggles.
    I agree with you we must put all our troubles, anxieties, pain at the feet of the cross. For this reason Our Savior Jesus came into the world to show us a better way, to free us from the oppressor, to educate us and assure us He is in control. His Spirit guides us, gives us strength to deal with everything that comes our way. He’s teaching us patience, and gives us peace. “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 And we are forever grateful.
    Don’t be discourage or loose faith yourself in your own trial, doesn’t pay to be angry, but be constantly in prayer. Prayer is a powerful tool and the evil ones flee from. I pray the Good Lord gives you strength and wisdom that through you, your husband realizes what a gift he has and changes his ways. God bless you.
    Thank you Gordon, may the Good Lord continue to bless you as well with this website and your insight. Maranatha.

  9. I feel it too, Gordon. I am also feeling the blessings of the Lord and how he is protecting my family. My 20 year old son revealed to me just the other day that he is still a virgin – Praise the Lord!!!!!! As for my 2 daughter’s as much as they kick and scream, they enjoy going to church and fellowship with the other members and their families. My oldest son has a girlfriend going on 2 years now. My husband just landed a fantastic job both financially and for his well being. I have a terrific job, and both my boys are working full time. We have a roof over our heads, clothes on our backs and food on the table. I have absolutely nothing to complain about as it regards my earthly life. My husband even got a bonus from his new employer that he just started in December with. I feel these blessings are because of the coming troubles. Like you stated, God will protect his children from the evil of this world. I am content with all that I have and wait patiently for the day that we all go home. God bless you Gordon.

  10. I Just heard a really interesting sermon on our armor. The pastor said that Roman swords were not long like we think of a sword but smaller dagger like. He said our shield is our faith. If a firey dart gets past the shield and pierces us we use our sword of the spirit (Gods word) to cut out the darts of the enemy. His word heals us. Well anyways he said it much better of course:) but I had never heard that take on that portion of scripture before. Every gift that God gives us interlocks so well with each other.

  11. You and your family have been truly blessed Valerie! The Lord has also blessed me, however I do go through many trials and tribulations in my life. I also get attacks from demonic forces, yet they have no power over me. God bless Valerie
