Christians Living in a World of Increasing Evil and Wickedness!

Commentary By:  Gordon King

The intensity and growing rise of evil, wickedness and turmoil in the world is on the rise my friends!  And if you cannot see it happening then I would ask you what world are you living in?

We are being inundated with immoral acts, thoughts, and actions.  Members of our own government are seeking to impose laws which are immoral and ungodly.  The media is very subtly changing our thoughts and our minds by imposing immorality through commercials, movies, and television shows.  They are attempting to brain wash us, to slowly but surely desensitize us to what God calls evil, wickedness and abominations!

At times I feel frozen in time, I feel paralyzed to what is happening, as if there is just so much wickedness around me that I cannot even move!  It is overwhelming to the mind, to the senses, to the soul.  It not only affects the mind but also the body, it drains us of energy, it sucks the life right out of us!

If I wasn’t born again then none of this would probably bother me in the least, but I am, and it does bother me a great deal!  I see it happening and I feel as though I can’t do a thing about it, it’s not slowing down a bit but ramping up rather quickly.

I not only see it in the world but also in the church!  Many churches teach that there is more than one way to heaven, that Jesus Christ is not the only way, that we can choose to live anyway that we want even after we are born again!  This is not what Christ teaches us, nor is it what the apostles told us in scripture.

1 Timothy 4:1

The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.

Am I the only one that feels so overwhelmed by what is happening in the world today?!  Are any other believers in Jesus Christ feeling the pressures of the world around them?  I presume that I am not the only one, that many others feel it, that they also feel overwhelmed.

The evil, the wickedness, the abominations that are in the world are not static, they are very dynamic and growing each day, day by day they increase in intensity and frequency!  Scripture tells us that these things will be, that they will increase the closer we get to Christ’s return.  The increasing evil sure doesn’t make me feel any better, but what does make me feel much better is knowing that Christ’s return for us is even that much closer!  But it’s the not knowing just how much closer that at times leads me to feel the pressures of the world.

As believers in Jesus Christ we have Christ to stand upon, He is our rock!  And if we build our foundation upon the Rock then we will withstand the storms. 

Matthew 7:24-25

Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: 25 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.

It is the Word of God that sees us through the storms, through the evil and wickedness, it is God that walks with us, it is He who helps us in our times of need, in our desperation, through tribulations in life.

Often in scripture we are told to stand firm in our faith, to persevere to the end, and I now really understand much more of what Jesus and the apostles were telling us!

Matthew 24:13

But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

James 1:12

Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love.

Corinthians 16:13-14

Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. 14 Let all that you do be done with love.

2 Timothy 3:13-15

But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

The Holy Bible is our guide-book for living this life, it is our instruction manual for how to overcome what the world throws our way, for evading the fiery darts of the enemy!

Ephesians 6:10-13

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. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 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.

We are not fighting against flesh and blood my friends, but against evil spirits!  And when we are strong in the Lord and the power of His might then we can withstand the fiery darts of the enemy!

Romans 5:1-5

Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

And patience, experience; and experience, hope:

And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

Our tribulations bring forth patience, and patience experience, and experience hope!  It is through tribulations that we meet with God, that we learn and know more about God, about who He is, about His ways.  It is not us who come to God but God who comes to us!  It is God who gives us faith, it is God who gives us hope, it is God who saves us from our sins.

The world is coming at us at full steam, it is unrelenting, unleashing evil, hatred, and wickedness upon us.  But we must remember who we are really dealing with here, it is not against people but against the evil spirits leading and guiding those people!  Once we know who we are up against then it is much easier to deal with them, and this is why it is so vitally important to stand firm upon the Rock of our salvation, Jesus Christ!  This is why it is so important to persevere to the end, to stand firm in our faith during hard and difficult times.  Our weapons against the enemy are not knives and guns, but the word of God!  Our weapons are not of this world for we are not fighting against flesh and blood, our weapons are our prayers, they are heavenly!  Our weapons are the word of God, our prayers, our knowledge of God’s word, our putting on the whole armor of God!  Our weapons are knowing God’s word, of believing and obeying the word of God, of obeying God Himself, of loving Him, trusting Him, of worshiping Him, of thanking Him.  And most importantly of all our weapon is our salvation through Jesus Christ!  Our weapons are not of ourselves or of our own doing but all come from God Almighty!

Take heart my friends, do not despair, for the Lord your God is at your side!  He is your comforter and your shield, a mighty fortress, your stronghold!

Psalm 18:1-3

I will love You, O Lord, my strength.  The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.  I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; So shall I be saved from my enemies.

While we are still here living in this world we will endure tribulations, we will be surrounding by those living in the world, we will be tempted, and we will be attacked by evil spirits.  But take heart my friends, we are not of this world, and our King is not of this world either!  Ours is of a heavenly realm, a place where God dwells.  And one day soon we shall be with the Lord forever, in heaven, ruling and reigning with Christ on earth for a thousand years, and then one day in a new heaven and on a new earth!  The ways of this world will not last forever, they are temporary, but the ways of God are eternal, they shall last forever!

God bless my friends!  Maranatha!

  1. My wife had a knee surgery the day after Christmas. I met this lady who is an American Sign Language Interpreter. She is a Christian and I brought it up about End times. She said that her pastor church don’t talking about it. She been a Christian all her life and she told me that she doesn’t know about New World Order and etc. I’m like, huh? what? She is in her late 40’s.

    It is really sad I’m seeing more and more Christians don’t hearing anything about what was the truth behind the scene of the globalist. I’m blaming at the pastors across the nation.

    My vibe is telling me that 2019 is going to be a ROLLERCOASTER RIDES.

    • Thanks for your comment Jim!

      It’s really amazing that so many Christians don’t know about bible prophecy and how they cannot relate what is happening in the world to bible prophecy!

      Many, many pastors are doing the church a great disservice by not teaching the flock these things.

      However, it is up to each one of us to do our own study of scripture, it’s our individual duty to read and study scripture, to apply it to our lives, and to understand what is happening in the world, to know where we are in the biblical timeline.

      God bless brother! Marantha!

  2. Welcome to why I stopped watching TV years ago. I seldom ever find anything Hollywood makes to be worthwhile. In fact, I don’t even listen to secular radio anymore. Much of what I do watch comes in the form of documentaries, sermons by Washer, Baucham, Begg, and a few others, along with the few TV shows I don’t find objectionable.

      We are being inundated and indoctrinated into the “New World Order” by the main stream media who works for the Progressive Movement who works for the Deep State. Many people do not believe that they are influenced at all by the media, but if that were the case then why do so many companies spend millions upon millions of dollars each year on television commercials? Because they work!

      Many of the commercials, television shows, and movies today are very subtle at introducing immorality as a way of life, sometimes you really don’t notice it, but other times its in your face! What they are doing is desensitizing the masses to this immorality, presenting it as good, as just another way of life, and so many people are eating it up, in fact many if not most don’t even realize it and it is changing their mind in regards to what is good and what is bad, this is the way of the enemy!

      God bless! Maranatha!

      • Agreed. It took me the better part of 40 years to realize it, but once I did, there was a mic drop and me walking away.

    • Thanks for your comment Lana!

      You are most welcome.

      That’s a good way to put it, exhausting! I wonder if any lost people see the changes that are happening in the world around them? And If they do then do they wonder what in the world is going on? Do they see the drastic changes taking place in society, in government? There must be many unbelievers who can see that the world is headed for nothing but no good, that it’s out of control.

      God bless! Maranatha!

  3. I definitely feel exactly what you’re talking about here. My husband and I have conversations all the time about how we can see the wickedness in the world increasing so rapidly. The Enemy is turning people far from God and even tricking Christians into following the ways of the world. It’s so sad and my heart breaks every day.

    Thanks for sharing this. It’s good to see that others are aware of all of this! God bless you.

      It’s so good to hear that there are other believers who can see what I can see, and who also relate it to what the bible tells us will happen in the last days. The world is quickly becoming more and more evil as the days go by, the darkness is growing exponentially! But this should not cause us to fear but to look up, for our redemption draws near!

      God bless! Maranatha!
