It will only get worse as the Day approaches. Right now we are surrounded by a cloud of Judases who hate us because we do not walk in goose-step with the direction they are taking the church. They tell both sheep and goat alike that God wants to unify all institutions that name the name of Christ regardless of their doctrine. And those who do not go along are the enemy -- that would be you and me.
The Bible tells us who this unified religious hag is destined to become and you resisters will be put out of your congregations for voicing any objections. They will shun you and ridicule you. You will be called judgmental and divisive and a threat to the peace and tranquility of the new religious order.
The prophesied persecution that would increase in the last days is beginning and it is happening within the walls of the church. You will be hated by all for your stand on the Truth while all those who go along with the communal direction of the tide will be given over to believe THE lie, because they did not have a love for the Truth.
We are little voices crying out in the wilderness, yet we are labeled as the dreaded religious leaders such as those who opposed Jesus. But we are not the ones with the miters on our heads. We are not the ones with clerical salaries and retirement plans. We are not the professors in the seminaries. We do not have titles of respect like Reverend and Doctor and Bishop. The ones who hate us and will persecute us hold those positions. With that we agree that it is indeed the religious leaders who Jesus rebuked.
We must stay awake and keep on the lookout and alert others when danger approaches. Jesus warned us not to be deceived. He told us before He returns that deception would increase to the point where even the elect could be misled. We may be scattered around the globe, but we can still join together in cyberspace and obey the Master's warning to gather ourselves together as we see the Day approach. If we can't do it in the flesh, we can online. If our only neighborhood option for a church is to join with the hag, we will obey the Master's voice and 'come out from among them' so as not to be in the fallout zone.
Give Him glory today -- Lift up His name wherever you go. Warn all -- He is coming soon and very soon!
"For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness." -- 2Thes 2:7-12
“And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write, ‘These things says He who is holy, He who is true, “He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name. Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you. Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown." Rev. 3:7-11
