The Scriptures tell us that the ‘saints’ (Christians) will overcome Satan, in the end times, by the blood of Christ (Jesus the Messiah) and by ‘the word of their testimony’.    Have you ever wondered exactly what the ‘the word of their testimony’ (our testimony) was/will be?

We know that the arrest of Christians will be the way that we verbally witness to the rulers of all the Earth, of the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ.   In regards to that, Jesus told us to make up our minds not to worry beforehand (before the day we go on trial, as I understand it) about what we will say (in our defense, at our trials).  The Holy Spirit will speak through us when the time comes.  Remember this!!

I don’t think this is ‘the testimony’ that  the verse above was referring to though. I believe ‘the word of (our) testimony’ will be simply what we tell people in our daily lives, and how we should answer if law enforcement asks us if we are Christians.  Here is the testimony God has given about his Son:

  • “God has given us eternal life, and
  • this life is in his Son (Jesus).
  • He who has the Son has life;
  • he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.”

So much has been made, in evangelical churches, of how we should witness to nonbelievers, what should be said, what pattern to follow, etc.  It can seem so intimidating and so complicated that we just don’t do it.  But, the passage above  (1 John 5:11-12)  is ‘the testimony God has given about his Son’.  Very simple.  Very concise.  I think this is what God would have us to say too.

Believe There Are Many Ways To God?

Only One Way?  How Intolerant!

Jesus promised that the gates of Hell would not prevail against the Church (BORN AGAIN BELIEVERS, NOT THE CATHOLIC CHURCH*).  Do the ‘gates of Hell’ represent the front line of Satan’s war on the Church?  Does it mean that although Satan attacks the Church and backs it into a corner, he won’t win. NO!!!  It means that as the Church attacks the gates of Hell–we will prevail!

But, I have to ask, for the last 50 or so years, who has been battering the gates of whom?  Who has retreated and retreated until, soon, they will be hunkered down behind their gates, trembling at the onslaught?

Tolerance and political correctness are just new terms for ‘surrender’!  Was Jesus politically correct?  Was he tolerant of evil?

A few years ago it was all the rage to ask ‘what would Jesus do’.  When He overturned the tables of the moneychangers and vendors in the temple, that was a clue!  It was also a foreshadowing of the system we are facing today (Babylon the Great), a corrupt alliance of businesses, bankers & politicians, upon whom God’s wrath and judgment will be poured out during the Tribulation.  I am not advocating violence.  I AM advocating boldness!

Jesus left us with the task of sharing the gospel with everyone, and fighting evil. We were to continue doing the work that Jesus had begun and demonstrate the good that God intended for mankind when He placed us here on Earth.

We were to be the salt that protected the world from becoming a place of depravity!  But the ‘salt has lost its saltiness’!  We were to be the light, to keep the world safe because ‘whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed, and whatever is concealed is meant to be brought out into the open’, yet we have ‘covered our lamp with a bowl’!  The whole world has slid into corruption and gangrenous decay, and we have retreated to a dimly lit corner!!

We have done pretty well at sowing the gospel, but, over time, we have neglected the fight against evil within our own borders.  We have become complacent and choked by the cares of this world.

God established America so that we would have a place from which to manifest His power and goodness to the nations!!  AMERICA wasn’t to be God’s witness to the world–America was to be the place from which the CHURCH could operate most safely and freely, and be His witness to the world!

For each of us, it’s time to decide which side of the fence we are on!  Are we to continue letting evil prevail around us and in our own lives, and lay aside His name?  Or will we clean up our own act (by the power of God within us), live righteously, and wage war on the kingdom of darkness?

God will not bless a lukewarm Christianity–we do dishonor to His name!  For those who want to call themselves ‘Christians’,  it is time to root sin out of our own lives, and expose and fight against evil wherever we encounter it!  Be assured that He is with us–and that the gates of Hell shall not prevail against us!

*The idea that Peter was the first Pope, and that Jesus thus established the Catholic church, is based upon a fundamental misunderstanding of His meaning in Matthew 16:18.  If the verse is read in context, it is seen that the ‘rock’ upon which Christ will build His church is Peter’s declaration that He (Jesus) is ‘the Christ, the Son of the living God’.

 

It’s Time To ‘Shake The Dust Off’

You Only Die Once–Make It Count!

 

 

(Continued from Part 3, ‘Novus Ordo Seclorum’)

What a great responsibility we have! We are one of the few countries where the people have the power of governing themselves! We are one of the few, and probably the best equipped, to delay and frustrate the plans of the antichrist in setting up his government! The date he will take the throne of world government has not been set. The American people may be the only ones who can delay it–by standing up for our rights and refusing to give up our rights to govern ourselves! We can not stop what God has said will happen, but we don’t have to allow it to happen here, now!

God has entrusted us with much and much will be required of us. We–individual Americans–have a grave responsibility, not just for ourselves, but for freedom loving people all over the world,to resist! How disappointed God will be–after giving us such great natural resources, inspired founding documents and direction, prosperity, freedom, and understanding–if we squander it and allow the world to be taken captive by the antichrist!

I believe America’s whole foundation & existence was divinely ordained to put an obstacle in the way of Satan’s plan at this very point in time! I believe we are called to use our freedom & constitutionally guaranteed rights to resist and expose the truth about Satan’s plan to the world, at this very hour, while we still have those rights! This is the fulfillment of Christ’s words in Matthew 24:14:

‘And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.’

That is us, American believers! And each of us now has the freedom & the tools to preach the gospel to people throughout the entire world, from the comforts of home! We can be at the forefront of this great mission!

I believe the words ‘for a witness’ hold special significance. I believe this means that we, while the events spoken of in the end times prophecies are unfolding, will be explaining them to people throughout the world, and sharing the gospel message! No one will be able to say they didn’t understand what was happening, and who was its author, if we do what we have been divinely inspired to do–in this very hour! Our message will be the ‘witness’ to them whereby they will later be judged as to whether they understood what they were participating in!

Don’t be mistaken though, if you answer the call, you will likely give your life in the process. You will likely be one of the ‘multitude in white robes’ who were martyred during the ‘time of great tribulation’ for spreading the word of God and the testimony/witness of the meaning of the events that are unfolding.

The first of the seven seals (written about in the book of Revelation, Holy Bible) has been opened. The four horsemen of the apocalypse are being released (invisible spiritual beings, empowered by God to pour out His judgment upon an unrepentant world).

The rider on the white horse has been loosed upon the world, bent on conquest. This is not a conquest of war and bloodshed, but it is a subjugation, a seizure of freedom from those that resist, and a seduction to those willing to surrender.

The other three horsemen will soon follow. Be on the watch for the second (he causes men to kill each other-don’t assume it just means in the context of war), the third (food prices will skyrocket-it will cost an average day’s wages for a loaf of bread), and the fourth (death–by weapons, famine, plague & wild animal attacks).

This is a warning to you of some of the dangers America is now facing from within while, simultaneously, God’s judgment is starting to be poured out on the earth. Most people are unaware that America is under siege from within, and will soon be attacked from outside as well. We are surrounded by enemies! Our only hope is in God. Repent and pray for His intervention and deliverance!

(Separate blogs will explain the dangers mounting against us from our enemies outside our borders, what prophecies say will happen to America, and whether there is any hope for us.)
