Commentary By: Gordon King
Hello folks! I am sorry for the sparse postings this past month, I have been ill and not feeling well among many other things.
This new year 2020 has brought with it both good and bad, the good being that bible prophecy is most definitely being fulfilled right before our very eyes! The bad being that bible prophecy is being fulfilled right before our very eyes! What?!!! That’s right, the fulfillment of bible prophecy is both a good thing and a bad thing my friends depending upon your perspective.
I don’t know about you, but I have been overwhelmed this year with illness, with increased time at work and on the road leaving me less time for this blog, with increased darkness surrounding me from all sides. I can feel it, I can see it, and it is growing exponentially!
On the other hand, the good Lord is always good, He is in control of all things, and He has been with me all along the way!
What we are seeing take place in the world today is the fulfillment of bible prophecy, that means the increase of signs that we were told about by Jesus Christ and His apostles thousands of years ago.
That means the increase in frequency and intensity of earthquakes and I believe natural disasters in general, in pestilence (Corona Virus, AIDS, HIV, Ebola, etc.), in famines (locust invasions of biblical proportions), in false Christs and false prophets.
It also means the increase in the wickedness of men’s hearts as spoken to us by the apostle Paul in his letter to Timothy.
2 Timothy 3:1-9
“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8 Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith; 9 but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was.“
The heart’s of people are becoming cold and hardened, they are pushing God further and further away and becoming more hateful of the things of God including Christians! They are worshiping the creation rather than the Creator and for that reason God has given them over to a debased mind, to do things which are unfitting.
“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.“
Unfortunately it’s not only in the secular world that these things are taking place, scripture tells us of a great falling away, an apostasy of the church in the last days.
2 Thessalonians 2:1-4
“Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.“
The apostasy of the church must come before the rapture of the church, that’s what the apostle Paul is telling us here. And this is exactly what we see happening in the church today, people who call themselves “Christians” are falling away from the truth and believing lies, all sorts of lies, they being deceived by false teachers and false prophets, but also by itching ears! Not only are they believing lies but are not believing the whole truth, and many will not study or learn the whole truth of scripture such as bible prophecy, such as the book of Revelation.
This is all from a spirit of evil and wickedness, an antichrist spirit, a pervasive spirit in the end times, in the last days, in these very same days that we now walk the earth!
I don’t mean to go down a rabbit hole hear my friends, but I have to say that I believe the Progressive Movement/Globalists will use the Corona Virus as another stepping stone towards the formation of a One World Government. Haven’t we heard them say before not to let a crisis go to waste? And it was one of Saul Alinsky’s rules to never let a crisis go to waste, he was a radical Leftist, a community organizer like President Obama was, and Saul Alinsky was one of Obama’s mentors. We already see governments all over the world attempting to control the spread of the virus by controlling the movement of people, by controlling where we can and can’t go, by controlling what we can and can’t do, and this is only the tip of the iceberg my friends, just the tip! It’s all about control, and if you put enough fear into peoples hearts then you can control them much easier, they will be much more willing to follow your lead, we’ve seen it in the past and the past has a way of repeating itself!
The things that we see happening around us are real, they are the fulfillment of bible prophecy, some of them are frightening, and when we see all of these things happening all around us then it can be quite overwhelming to say the least! But as born-again believers in Jesus Christ we are not given a spirit of fear but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. The fulfillment of bible prophecy is given to us so that we will believe, it is given to us in order to increase our faith in God, so that we will know that the return of Christ for us is soon, even at the door!
Jesus Christ Himself told us that these things would happen and they are! He told us so that we would not fear when they begin to happen, but rather that we would rejoice in knowing that His soon return for us at the rapture of the church is near!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
