Most of humanity is meandering toward hell and are completely oblivious about what they are doing. Most Christians have locked up the Book of Revelation, seeing it as only a future prophecy with no relevance for the modern world. On the other hand, there is a segment of Christians who believe that all the prophecies in the Book of Revelation have already been fulfilled with the reign of the Caesars, the persecution of Christians, and the world empire of ancient Rome, seen as Babylon the Great. For many years, I have believed that the Revelation is relevant for every period from the First Century until Christ returns in glory just before the end of the world to rapture up His children and usher them into eternal glory. I have written many articles on every plague, woe, and the bowls of God’s wrath in the Revelation to demonstrate their relevancy for each period throughout Christian history. I have written about the first woe (Revelation 9:1-11), “The Silent Pandemic of Mental Illness” and the second woe (Revelation 9:12-21), “The Muslim Invasion” that has adversely affected humanity. If we open our spiritual eyes, we can clearly see that the trumpets and the bowls of God’s wrath have taken place in the past, in our current day, and soon to take place. The Book of Revelation is dynamic for all of Christian history and was never written to be static for just one period in time. Although each Christian epoch was written as if it were the last, I firmly believe that hell is at the gates, and I am compelled to give one last warning to Christians living now.

To miss what is going on in the world, we would need to be living in a bubble. Of course, as believers, we knew that this day would come when the whole world seems to be falling apart from horrific firestorms to unbelievably extreme temperatures and from unchecked lawlessness to the grossest of sexual perversions. Perhaps the worst for the true believer is to see so many fall away and embrace all the lies of the devil as if they were the gospel truth. It is enough to make you weep in great agony.
We Can Make Things Better
Perhaps the most dangerous lie is that we can make the world better through the political process. This has been a lie used many times throughout history raising up the Caesars, Napoleons, and Hitler’s promising to make things better, but in the end creating a cult-like mentality, which brought death and destruction to the world. This thinking of making things better through the political process is antithetical to the Way presented by Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Jesus Christ came to earth to show us a better way of truly making things better. The Christian way is through transformational change one person at a time. The heart and mind must be changed by putting off the old life and putting on the new life in Christ. The devil cares only about manipulating your heart and mind to believe his lies thus creating a cult-like mentality. He wants you to believe that forcing everyone through his new laws will cause them to align with his way, or your way of thinking, which will overcome the divisions, and establish a brave new world. This is a very dangerous and deceptive lie of the devil that will ingeniously target religious people who will be willing to follow him to hell and back. They will even proclaim him as some kind of saint or savior that will deliver the world from very evil and corrupt people. They may even proclaim that God has raised him to fix the world through the political process. Stop listening to the devil who can even disguise himself as an angel of light (II Corinthians 11:14). This will be the path that the dreaded Antichrist will take causing you to believe that he has your best interest at heart. This deception will be so strong that people will freely worship him as the savior of humanity believing that he alone will stop the wars, the outrageous lawlessness, and even the wrath of God as we had discussed earlier. Let’s stop listening to the devil’s lies and return to God’s way of real lasting change. Continue reading Seven Lies of the Devil – Part II
There are many voices in the world speaking one thing, then another. To hear God’s still small voice all other voices must be shut out, including the voices in our own heads. The whole world, both East and West, is designed by Satan to keep you from hearing God’s still small voice. It is designed to keep you from hearing God’s prophetic voice. There is no accident that every country has social media platforms, news outlets, and thousands of popular websites to keep you from hearing God’s voice. There is no accident that every country has movies, internet games, and streaming videos to keep you so occupied that you cannot hear God’s still small voice. The world is being overcome and overwhelmed by the spirit of Antichrist and his false prophet. They are purposefully leading humanity to chase after every new conspiracy theory, half-truth, and outrageous lie, which keeps them from hearing God’s prophetic voice. Furthermore, they are leading humanity to draw forth their own conclusions based on what they have observed in the world. In a sense, nearly everyone has become their own prophet by completely ignoring God’s prophetic voice. We must listen to the still small voice of God (I Kings 19:11-12).
