Commentary By: Gordon King
The world as we have known it in the past will never again be the same! Times are changing, the world is changing, not for the better but for the worse.
The darkness is upon us, and evil spirits are creating havoc, confusion, chaos, and destruction around the world. Wicked acts and deeds are becoming rampant and commonplace. What used to seem horrifying and out of the ordinary is now becoming not so bad and a daily occurrence.
What we now see happening, such as the Orlando nightclub shooting, the San Bernardino massacre, and the murder of five police officers in Dallas Texas, is a mere foreshadowing of things to come. It will get worse, much worse my friends.
People in the world are becoming desensitized to the hatred, death, destruction, and chaos in the world around them. What once was viewed as right is now viewed as wrong, and what was wrong is now right! People used to hide their heads in the sand, turn the other way, but now they just don’t seem to even notice or care. What is happening right before them doesn’t seem to shake people up any more, it’s just a part of everyday life.
This is something in which believers in Jesus Christ must not let happen to them. We must remain in the word of God and know what it says and believe it. We must follow the teachings of Christ and be able to discern the lies from the truth, the wicked from the good, the right from the wrong. Just because we are saved, does not make us immune from the deceptions of the world, nor does it keep us from being led down the wrong path!
Satan and his demons are attempting to bring down even the elect! They are manipulating, lying, and leading the masses astray. Theirs is to destroy and steal lost souls. They will do whatever it takes to destroy God’s plan, and that includes using each other to lead down the wrong path, to divide, to cause chaos and confusion.
The world is now at a cross roads, a fork in the road, one leading to eternal life, the other to eternal destruction. However, there is also something very sinister going on at this crossroads, and that is the dividing of believers, the attempt to tear down the church of God Almighty!
Unfortunately, I believe that there are many people sitting in church today who believe that they are saved, that they are going to heaven. Yet, many are deceived, they have been led down the wrong path.
There are lies being spread about the true God, about the way to heaven, and about who is actually a believer and who is not. Many believe that because they believe in God, that they go to church, and that they do good things, that they will go to heaven. These things will not get you to heaven my friends, not one of them! For even the devil and his minions believe, yet they will not get to heaven. You must repent of your sins, have a change of heart, believe that Jesus Christ is God, and accept Him as your Lord and Savior. That is the only way to get to heaven, not merely believing. Turn your life over to Jesus Christ, make Him your Lord, then you shall be saved!
It is not us who changes ourselves, but God who changes us. If we truly repent and believe, then we will be changed, a new creation, a new spirit, and a new life! Filled with the Holy Spirit of God Almighty!
This is a time of dividing, of separation, of weeding out the wheat from the tares. It is a time before the rapture of the church, the beginning of the Tribulation period, and the second coming of Christ! Let us not be caught unaware, off guard, and left to our own devices. Follow the leading of the Holy Spirit, listen to the still small voice of God within.
None of us are perfect, God knows I’m not. But we are forgiven! Amen. When we stumble we must get back up, when we fall we must stand up and follow the narrow road which leads to heaven. Following Christ is a daily event, one which requires us to repent of our sins, not in order to remain saved, but in order for us to remain in close fellowship with our Lord.
It’s not about us in the world, it’s all about God! It’s about His love for us, the salvation of those who will turn from their wicked ways and repent. It’s about a personal relationship between the God of the universe and man. It’s about God taking as many with Him to heaven as will accept Him as their Lord and Savior, it’s about our eternal destiny!
Satan will attempt to cover up the true message of the cross, to deceive as many as he can into believing that there is another way. He will lie, cheat, still, and kill in order to keep as many souls as he can from getting to heaven, and taking as many as he can with him into hell! This is what we see happening in the world today, it is the work of Satan and his demons.
The world is becoming darker, yet there is hope, there is light! As the world gets darker, then the light shines brighter, just as the moon shines brighter the darker it becomes at night. We are the light of the world, and we must shine our light into the darkness, in order to lead as many souls as we can into heaven. We are also the salt of the earth, used to preserve what is righteous and holy on earth. Not so we may change the world, but so that we can spread the gospel. Think about it for a moment, as the world gets darker and uglier, the more the antichrist spirit will come against the church, the more difficult it will become to share the good news. We already see it happening now, the increase in the persecution of Christians around the world. We must preserve what is good in order for the truth to be told, for lost souls to be saved!
There is no stopping the darkness from becoming darker, but we can slow it down. There is no stopping the judgment of God Almighty upon the wicked, it will happen. What is written in scripture is the truth and it will happen just as it is written. The end times are upon us, and as time advances the wickedness will increase exponentially, as a woman in labor, her pains increase over time.
Prayer is a mighty and powerful tool given to us by our Father in heaven, it works and it can do great things. Prayer along with faith can move mountains!
Do not be alarmed by what you see taking place in the world today, be aware! Look at it from a heavenly perspective, from a biblical point of view and it will all make sense. Do not fear what is coming, but seek ye first the kingdom of God! Take heart in knowing that our God is with us and will never forsake us, that He loves us more than we could ever know, and that He makes all things work together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
