Commentary By: Gordon King
Brothers and sisters in Christ, I send my love and blessings to you all!
I am feeling a heaviness in my spirit, a feeling which is dark and obtrusive. I am sensing demonic spirits around me and in the world in general. The darkness is making itself known, and the anitchrist spirit is thriving!
The forces of darkness are in a frenzy, and their quest for domination is upon us all. Wickedness is abounding and the lost are feeding on its prey. The world is at odds with what is good and holy, and what is evil and unholy. There is good, and there is evil, there is no in-between!
We can either serve the god of this world, or we can serve the God of the universe, Jesus Christ. Those are the two options, there are no other, and there is no other name upon which one can be saved, only Jesus Christ!
The evil in this world is one of a spiritual nature, yet it does manifest itself into the physical dimension. We see this in the evil and wicked acts of people throughout the world, day in and day out.
I love the people in this world, no matter their religion, no matter their race, no matter their sexual orientation. Yet, I do not love the sin, I hate the sin, as God does!
The truth is the truth, there is no changing that. Whatever a person believes to be the truth does not make it the truth, the truth remains the truth no matter what a person believes. For example, if I believe that adultery is not a sin, this does not make it so, God says that it is a sin. If I believe that all religions lead to heaven, this does not make it so! There is only one way to heaven, and that way is through Jesus Christ!
The truth is that you either accept God or you rebel against Him, no other choice. You either believe that Jesus Christ is God and died to give us eternal life, or you don’t. All other religions requires works for salvation, only Christianity offers eternal life as a free gift from God! A gift which is bestowed upon us, even though we do not deserve it.
There are people in other religions committing horrible and heinous acts of violence in the world, this is true, it is evil and wicked. Yet, while I do not hate these people, I do hate the sin they are committing! I love them as people, and wish for them to come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ!
Exposing the evil in the world is one of our callings as believers, it is our duty to shine the light into the world, and to spread the truth. There are many unbelievers who claim that we are evil and intolerant for doing such things. They say that we are very narrow-minded in our beliefs. I would have to agree with the last statement, we are narrow-minded, because the path which leads to salvation is a narrow one. There is only one way to heaven, and there are few who find it!
‘Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” ‘
I don’t expect for everyone to believe in what I believe in, nor do I expect everyone to agree with me on all issues. However, there comes a time when you either believe the truth or you don’t. I proclaim to know the truth, because I have experienced the truth! The unsaved say that they know the truth, but how can they if they have never before experienced it? Jesus Christ is the truth, and the only way to know Him is to have a relationship with Him!
There is soon coming a time when God will no longer strive with man, but say enough is enough!
‘And the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” ‘
Some people say that they don’t believe in God, yet they argue against Him! How can you argue against someone you don’t even believe exists! That would be like me arguing about a purple elephant in the room, if there was no such thing. Why would I even do it?! It makes no sense whatsoever. And yet self-proclaimed atheists do that very thing. They come up with all kinds of reasons and opinions on why God really doesn’t exist, yet if He didn’t then why are they arguing about Him? Because deep inside they know that He does exist!
The world makes tons of excuses for the sin in their lives, explaining away the sin itself. They turn things around, and take scripture out of context in order to rationalize their lifestyle. Anyone of us could take a verse of scripture here and a verse over there, then twist it around out of context to make it sound like God condones sin. When in fact He is telling us just the opposite! And if they don’t even believe in God, then why do they even quote scripture?! Yet, many do.
This is the evil, the darkness which is looming in the world today. Satanic beings influencing the minds of all those who will listen. Demonic spirits masquerading as good, deceiving those vulnerable to attack. Some will come dressed in sheep’s clothing, and some will come wearing darkness on their sleeves. There are those who will hide their true identity, and then there are those who will come out blatantly, arrogantly, and without restraint!
If we know that God exists, and if we are living a godly life, walking with the Lord daily, then we already know the truth. We know that God performs miracles, that He is with us always, and that one day we shall be with the Lord forever! However, the darkness, the evil, will attempt to change our minds and our hearts. They will tell us lies, feed us false hope, and try to lead us astray!
My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, the day is soon coming for our eternal redemption, for the good work which the Lord began within us to be completed! The rapture of the church is coming soon, whether or not you believe in pre, mid, or post trib, it’s coming soon! Let us not fight among ourselves regarding such things, but agree to disagree. I know that I have given what I believe to be the truth about the timing of the rapture, yet I do not know for certain until it happens! We can all believe what we want regarding this matter, yet we are all saved, we are all children of God!
Follow the lead of the Holy Spirit, listen to His voice. Give heed to the call of God, and know that He is with you! These are dark times that we are living in, times which are difficult to live as believers. However, we know that God is with us, that He is victorious, that Satan has already been defeated. We know the outcome of the future, we know where our eternal destiny is, and we know who we serve! What more could we ask?
God Almighty, Jesus Christ, hear my prayer. I come to You in humble adoration, giving You thanks in all things. You are the King of kings and the Lord of lords. I ask that You give Your children protection from the evil ones, peace and comfort that only You can provide, and blessings from heaven above. Bring us together in one spirit and one mind. In Jesus holy name I pray. Amen
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
