So now we hear of Iran developing a halal internet in order to restrict information from their citizens, in effect censoring the internet. But this isn’t the first country to do such a thing, China has what is called “The Great Firewall of China”, both limit and censor what can and cannot be viewed over the internet.
Do we view this as merely a tool used by these governments to control their own citizens or does it go even deeper than that? Could it be that what we are seeing happening in these countries is a precursor of what is coming upon the entire world?!
I believe that it not only is but that in the near future there will be censorship over the entire internet!
The internet has been a useful tool for not only the secular world but also for the body of Christ. We have been able to share the gospel of Christ throughout the world, to communicate freely to one another, to share our faith. But will it continue this way, and how much longer will it last?
I don’t have the answer as to when this will occur, only that I believe it will. It could be that it will not happen until the Antichrist is revealed, yet it may be much sooner than that, or could it mean that we are much closer to the beginning of the Tribulation period than we think that we are?
Whatever the case may be, when it happens communication between believers will be greatly diminished, and what we share on social media will be censored. The closer we get to a One World Government the closer we get to the censorship of the internet, the controlling of the masses!
And although it sounds like the script for a movie it is not, it is real, and it is more likely than not going to happen. Just as we read about what will happen in the end times from scripture, it all seems to be written for a movie, however it will all happen exactly as written!
We already see the main stream media promoting fake news, of them distorting the truth, and not even telling the truth! They control the masses by whatever stories they tell, whether they are the truth or not, and most people eat them up like candy.
It’s all about control, control of our lives, our thoughts and our minds. The movies have been conditioning us to believe certain things for decades now, to believe in aliens from outer space, to accept homosexuality and other sexual perversions as normal, to believe that abortion is a good thing, to believe that we must do what we feel like doing in order to have a successful life, that there are no absolute morals or values, that whatever we believe or choose to do is good. Censoring the internet is just one more step in controlling our thoughts and our minds, attempts to guide us in the direction of the world, away from the truth!
Whatever happens in this world we must remember these things, there is but one God, Jesus Christ. Without Christ at the center of our life we are misled and misguided. Without being born again we shall not enter the kingdom of heaven. We must read, study, meditate upon, and write God’s words upon our hearts! We must allow the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us into all truth and righteousness, for the times are coming of great deceptions, lies, and untruths, of perilous times!
Things in this world will happen as if they were written for a movie script, but they are real and they will happen in our lives. What is unfolding upon the world are things which we may never thought would happen but are. The world is becoming a darker place, demonic spirits are hard at work, and everything is falling into place for the beginning of the Tribulation period.
What we must remember is that God is in control of all things, and He even uses Satan and his demons to perform His will, to carry out His plan. God is supreme, and even though Satan believes that he is doing his own will he is actually performing it in accordance with God’s plan. Does this mean that God causes bad things to happen? No. But He makes them work to His will. All things work together for the good of those that love God, all who are called according to His purpose. God makes all things work together for the good of those that love Him, even the bad things!
“In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will,“
He works “all things” according to the counsel of His will!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
Yes I agree Gordon and think that is why The Lord is preparing us to stand alone if we must. It will be hard to no longer be able to communicate over the internet and difficult to find true fellowship because of the great Apostasy. I just want you to know my dear brother in Christ, as long as I have breath I will be praying for you!
Thank you Christine!
I will be praying for you also sister as I am now also! The Lord is good, and even if the internet was no longer an option for us, He may just provide us with another way to communicate. Or perhaps by that time we will have been raptured out of here! Whatever the case may be we must remain strong in Christ, know that He is always with us, and know that we are praying for each other sister, that we are not alone in this!
God bless! Maranatha! Gordon 🙂
