continuing on with yesterday’s topic… I’ve made a strong case that an organized, wholesale persecution of Christians has begun. Well, technically it began years ago, but it’s increasing radically.
And of course, I’m aware that there are atheists who still read this blog, mostly to see what those goofy Christians are up to?
Well, we’re being persecuted, suffering, and dying for our faith. Guess what? You’re going to see it – in your lifetime – where Christians are tortured and killed for their faith in Germany. In the UK. In Canada. In the US. It’s already been happening, they’re just calling it “workplace violence”. Funny how “School shootings” always seem to target the Christian kids first. “workplace violence” always seems to deliberately target those Christians first that are unapologetic about their faith.
Moving on to the next symptom, there’s an increase of apostasy. I’ve been slowly introducing that thought since, well, 2012. But it’s evident if you’ve been reading this blog.
The Bible says in the last days, that many false teachers will arise. Wow, yeah, that’s abundant and evident. I’m dumbfounded at what is being preached today. There is an obvious hatred of the Bible coming from many Bible teachers. Congregations are numb today to hearing Pastors say that” this verse is a scribal error, it should read…”
Hey, that’s God’s word you’re slandering! Aren’t you the least bit afraid of that?
I stopped listening to Warren Wiersbe when he ridiculed a verse in Romans in the King James, claiming it was an obvious attempt by some pious scribe to copy part of a verse later on and stick it earlier in the chapter.
ah, the mythical “pious scribe”. He must have done that to the very first copy of Romans, because it reads that way in the majority of lectionaries, uncials, miniscules, etc. It’s only in flawed and questionable manuscripts it reads the way Wiersbe thinks it should be.
Friends, I can’t think of too many Bible teachers as influential as Warren Wiersbe. To question God’s word is the height of arrogance. You’re man, God is God. God wrote it that way – who are YOU to question that?
It used to be that when a pastor denied the virgin birth, it made newspaper headlines. Today, Christian universities are erecting statues to men who deny the virgin birth. That’s frightening.
It used to be when pastors questioned the Bible as myths, that men of God rose in the pulpits to denounce them on Sunday Mornings. Today, we invite those same men to preach in our pulpits, and pay them high honorariums.
Men who deny the trinity are featured in TV shows. their books sell millions. We even give them roles in Christian movies where they get a brief but critical role as the pastor who teaches about the pre-trib rapture, just before all the Christians disappear…
20 years ago, a Christian pastor with a radio ministry commented that things are happening today in Christianity he thought would not happen until AFTER the Rapture! That was 20 years ago!
Apostasy is rampant. Persecution of Christians is rising. False teachers prevail. Pastors who hold true to the Bible are being pushed out. Seminary graduates who are Fundamentalist are having to stay in their day jobs, because, well, churches are not hiring men of God, but entertainers.
tick… tick… tick…
the clock is ticking. Ticking fast. If there’s some ministry for Christ that you feel God is impressing upon you, better start. That family member you never witnessed to? Do it now.
Wanted to write a website or blog for Christianity? no more procrastination. Do it now.
Start witnessing to friends, enemies, neighbors. Do it.
These are all things you cannot do while you’re in heaven. And you’re going there, VERY soon.
Time is running out. I become more convinced every day. Evil is rampant in the world. The trumpet blast is probably starting as a ringing in your ears. It’s going to get louder and louder and louder until… you hear a voice call out, loud and mighty, “COME UP HITHER”.
I cannot emphasize this enough. We’re running out of time. The feeling wakes me up at night. “hurry! Finish your writings! finish your blog! Finish the Tribulation site!”
I’m driven by this feeling, that I’m running out of time to get everything done. And that you are too.
Lastly, if you have doubts about your salvation, get that settled and now. If you have doubts, but decide to put that off, make sure you’ve bookmarked my website on surviving the Tribulation, and you start printing out the pages once it’s complete, which I hope to finish in the next few months.
You’re going to need it.
To my atheist readers – guys, this is reality. You’re going to see it happen with your own eyes. don’t put it off until I disappear. You want to get right with God and get saved LONG before the Rapture. That means today.
Because very early in the Tribulation, VERY early, over a billion people will die. That’s a quarter of the population of the earth.
Get saved now, while there’s still time to avoid that.
11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. Romans 13:11 (KJV)
