…He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way
(2 Thessalonians 2:7)
Commentary By: Gordon King
The world has become a place filled with chaos, confusion, mayhem, and disaster, tensions are high and the slightest misstep could lead to massive upheaval and even world war!
Evil and darkness are restrained by God, yet at any moment we could find ourselves at the brink of collapse, this is how bad it’s getting in the world, when even believers find themselves wishing that things would end, that our blessed hope would soon arrive!
It’s difficult being a believer in the world today, it’s getting harder and harder as the days go by. I don’t know about you but I feel as though I am living on the edge! I feel like I don’t know how much more of this world that I can take.
I see the evil in the world, and I see the spiritual darkness taking hold. On the other hand I see God restraining the evil and keeping it at bay. Without the good Lord restraining evil the world would be completely dark and wicked! He is allowing evil but only to a point right now.
Even though the world is becoming more evil each day we as believers can rest assured that God has not abandoned us nor will He leave us here when all Hell will literally breaks loose!
It’s coming my friends, it’s coming, and when He who now restrains is taken out of the way then all Hell will literally break loose! The increase of evil and darkness is a precursor to what is coming, it is a sign of the times, just a prelude, a warmup performance of what Satan has in store for this world.
On the other hand, we haven’t seen anything like it will be once God pours out His judgment and wrath upon the world! But, as a part of the church we don’t have to worry about that, at least not for ourselves but for those left behind, because we won’t be here!
We are living on the edge of time, at a precipice, a very dangerous place in the world. Things are coming together, they are converging to a point, and they are happening for a reason. The intensity is increasing dramatically, and the darkness is pushing hard to break through the restraints of the Holy Spirit. But it will not happen until the Holy Spirit is removed.
There is only one thing that can restrain the evil and the darkness in this world and that is God Almighty! God is the only one that can restrain it all, and He does it through the Holy Spirit filled church. He uses the church filled with His Spirit to restrain evil in this world, but once the church is removed then the evil will be without restraint and free to go absolutely wild!
Once the restrainer is removed from this world then things will get very ugly very quickly, the world will be filled with darkness, unrestrained darkness! We’ve seen very intense darkness in this world, but we have never before seen it like it will be after the beginning of the Tribulation period, perhaps like the days of Noah, but nothing like we’ve ever seen in modern times!
The intensity of evil and wickedness in the world is increasing dramatically, the push towards globalism, the push for tolerance of all things (except Christianity), gender confusion, abortion, selling aborted body parts, antisemitism, Christian persecution, interfaith religion, antichrist spirit, hedonism, necromancy, spirit channelling, witchcraft, Satanism, humanism, transhumanism, the list goes on and on my friends!
People are becoming more self-absorbed, without self-control, lawless, brutal, hateful, proud, blasphemers, unkind, unloving, despisers of good, unthankful, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, and having a form of godliness but denying its power. These things are told to happen in the last days, that perilous times will come, and say it isn’t so already!
People are succumbing to all sorts of lies, they are told that its okay to worship anything and all things, that all ways are good, that all ways lead to heaven. The younger generation is being taught all sorts of lies in school, they are being indoctrinated into a global mindset, a mindset that abhors anything of Jesus Christ, and not only condones but pushes all things which are ungodly and unholy! It instills within these young minds a Progressive agenda, an agenda which is of an antichrist spirit, a spirit which embraces other religions and beliefs such as Islam, humanism, worshiping mother earth, ect. It is against anything that has to do with the true and only God of this universe, Jesus Christ!
I’m telling you now my friends, that things are about to get real ugly real soon! Once a Progressive gets into the Oval Office then things will change for the worse very quickly, and not only here in America but in the entire world! We are just a step away from this happening, and if we are that close then we are also that close to the Tribulation period beginning, and that means that the rapture of the church is even at the door my friends, at the door!!!
It’s only a matter of time my friends, right now we are living on the edge, and there is only one thing keeping the world from falling off the edge, the rapture of the church!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
