The Coming Storm to Control all of Humanity

The storm is coming. Satan and the powers of darkness want total control of every person on the planet. They want to control your action, your speech, and your every thought. Large worldwide religious movements have tried to do this, and it did not work. Imperialism did not work, nation-building did not work, the United Nations did not work, even progressive liberalism isn’t working. Only one thing is! Unfortunately, it’s not God’s beautiful truth, because He will not force His will upon humanity. On the other hand, Satan, the master planner, and deceiver, is already at work to control the entire world. He did it once before, just before the great flood and he is doing it again now. The Bible says, “And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart wasonly evil continually” (Genesis 6:5). “Every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” Read that again slowly allowing it to sink in deeply. This is Satan’s plan; this is his goal. Satan does not care what your religion is, he doesn’t care what country you belong to, and he doesn’t even care what color you are. The more, the merrier! “Come one, come all” is his motto. Even the leader of the Catholic Church is sending an invitation to all religions to come together and reject those, like myself, who embrace fundamentalism.

I clearly hold to Christian fundamentalism. I hold to the belief in biblical infallibility, biblical inerrancy, and the sufficiency of Scripture. I will not be controlled. When we hold to our fundamentalist beliefs, we are not so easily carried away by modernism (or modern thoughts) that have seduced the church and invaded every social media platform. As we examine this seduction it will be necessary to understand that there is a difference between evil thoughts and vain imaginations. It’s necessary because both must be confronted independently. You might be successful in confronting one and not the other leaving you still in the hands of the enemy, stunting your spiritual growth, and eventually becoming a slave to the powers of darkness. The mistake a lot of people make is, if it’s not blatantly evil, then they say, there is nothing wrong with it and it’s perfectly ok to entertain whatever is thrown at them by the powers of darkness. The most common mistake most make is performing a self-righteous comparison of themselves with others (See Romans 12:3). To think of themselves better than others will allow them to be swept away by the tidal wave of deception that’s flooding the entire earth. Today we will start by making a critical analysis of vain imaginations, rarely looked upon by the world, and then proceed to look at evil thoughts that have captured so many souls in our day.

To seek anything more than what we have been given is vanity, especially if we fantasize about getting it (See Ecclesiastes 2:1,11). Vain imagination is also figuring things out for yourself, doing your research, or running the numbers. It all adds up to vanity. Thinking that you have the power within yourself to figure out what causes everything to happen is vain imagination. In their attempt to discover the deep dark secrets of the universe, to understand mankind’s personality or the deep caverns of his fallen nature apart from God is vain imaginations (See Romans 1:21, Colossians 2:8). We see this vanity more and more in our day causing humanity to pull further away from the one true God, who is the only one with all the answers (See I Corinthians 8:2-3). These kinds of thoughts or vain imaginations are prolific on social media and news sites. These vain imaginations can also be seen in nearly all their advertisements. For they pridefully proclaim that they have all the answers to the problems plaguing humanity. They brilliantly showcase all their remedies from different medications, the correct foods to eat or avoid, to the correct exercise programs, and to the best entertainment or clothing to wear. The list can go on and on to cure all the physical, emotional, psychological problems known to mankind. It’s not just making the worthless purchase but it’s filling your every thought with how you can improve your life, becoming all that you imagine yourself to be, as you move further and further away from what God wants you to become in Christ Jesus. These are vain imaginations, which many dwell on for hours.

It’s not just the vain imaginations that are driving people further and further away from God and putting them under Satan’s control by the powers of darkness, but it’s also the evil thoughts that they are constantly planting in their minds. It’s the absolute hatefulness that people display towards one another that’s magnified on both social media platforms and in the news media. It’s their anger, their hostility, and their rudeness that’s filling people’s every thought to follow them in their war against one another. It does not matter how noble their cause is, if it’s driving us to emulate their bad behavior and vigorously share their cause with others then we have been captured by the powers of darkness. Yet, we see this on a great many postings on social media every day. We witness their hate and war-mongering that easily drowns out any attempt to demonstrate our Christian agape love. The greater the cause, their misguided belief, or even their conspiracy theory, can magnify their evil thoughts bringing them squarely into the enemy’s camp and further away from God, the God of love. If we allow ourselves to be carried away by this hateful rhetoric, then we will become the sacrificial lamb offered up to the powers of darkness to bring us one step closer to total control.

We must come out from among them and be separate. The Bible says, “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you” (II Corinthians 6:17). When we do then we can allow God to fill our every thought. We will no longer need to figure things out. We will no longer be inundated with hateful thoughts from the world. We will be set free to only listen to God’s truth, the truth about our humanity, the truth about the universe, and the glorious truth that has set us free from the powers of darkness. When we come only to God’s truth, we almost immediately, understand our role in the universe. We are caretakers. We not only care for ourselves, but we care for all of humanity, we care for all the animal life, we care for the entire planet, and marvel at the universe. We are caretakers of all that God has made. When we come out from among them, then we can truly aim for holiness. Although the world’s hate for us will abound, they will no longer rob us of our joy. God’s faithful children will continue to rejoice and be thankful in all things. We will openly display our peace to others in a world of shock and turmoil. As the world is ravaged by sin and hatefulness toward one another, God’s children will continue to express their self-giving love to everyone.

Dear children, this is only possible because God fulfilled the ancient prophecies and sent His only begotten Son as a sacrifice for all of humanity. His glorious mission to earth was to show humanity a better way. The old, old story of Christ dying on the Cross for all our sins and giving us a new life in Christ through faith only opens the door. We need to go through it by dying to self, thus picking up our cross, and following Christ. “Come out from among them.” When we come out from among them, then we will no longer be led to fill our minds with evil thoughts against others. We will no longer be led astray by vain imaginations carrying us down a path of total control by the powers of darkness. Oh, what a joy it is to simply wait upon the Creator of all that exists to lead us in our every thought, to show us things that will profound the imagination, to stretch the mind beyond what we thought humanly possible, by giving us His truth alone with no mixture of error. As social media platforms grow exponentially to spread their hatefulness, their vain imaginations, and their many outrageous lies, so does Satan’s control over all of humanity. Dear children, the storm is coming!  “Come out from among them!

Are You Living the Fulfilled Life? (Video)

Unfortunately, most who call upon the Name of Jesus Christ are not living the fulfilled life. Most are controlled by their schedules, rushing from one event to another with little time to relax in between. Worry, anxiety, and stress have become so commonplace, that many don’t realize how much it is affecting their physical and mental health. They don’t realize that when people blow up in public that they have reached their breaking point. When this happens, they don’t understand that anxiety and stress have won the day and crushed another soul. These people are not living the fulfilled life in Christ. After watching this inspiring video on my secure website, please share it with others.

Are You Living the Fulfilled Life?

Unfortunately, most who call upon the Name of Jesus Christ are not living the fulfilled life. Most are controlled by their schedules, rushing from one event to another with little time to relax in between. Worry, anxiety, and stress have become so commonplace, that many don’t realize how much it is affecting their physical and mental health. They don’t realize that when people blow up in public that they have reached their breaking point. When this happens, they don’t understand that anxiety and stress have won the day and crushed another soul. These people are not living the fulfilled life in Christ. Most don’t realize that in the beginning technology was created to save us time and to be more productive. However, what we as a people have gained in productivity, we have lost tenfold, by leading us into a life of captivity to our devices. From morning till night many are glued to their cellphones and computer screens, not just for work, but for all of life. Schedules, alarms, notifications, popups, email, and text messages, continually pull us in one direction then another. Then whatever free time we thought we had, is now gobbled up by the ever-growing social medial platforms, all competing for your time, your money, and your soul. Dear friends, this is not the life that we were created for. If you are interested in living the fulfilled life, then continue reading.

Once you have tasted the good life or the new life in Christ, then you will have no desire to return to your previous life. Jesus Christ said, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy; I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). Dear children, I don’t need to convince you that the god of this world (Satan) is very busy destroying life by leading them into captivity. On the other hand, Jesus Christ came to bring us life beyond our wildest imagination. Once the shackles of slavery have been broken, then we will gloriously live life as God, our Creator, had intended. We will live a peaceful life allowing things to happen as God has ordained them from the dawn of creation. Anxious thoughts and unyielding stress will be put on notice that God’s beloved children will no longer abide by their demonic control. We will be free at last to serve our Creator in heavenly bliss, as time appears to stop. Hallelujah! Clearing your schedules and allowing God’s will to be done, will be the most earth-shattering thing you will ever do other than your original plea for Christ to come into your life and make you into a new creation (see II Corinthians 5:17).

We will need to completely rearrange our life and thoughts through discipline so that the God of peace can freely work in our lives so that we can live the fulfilled life. “Freely work” let that sink in! God cannot freely work if He doesn’t have complete control of our schedules and everything that we allow to pass through our minds. For most, they will need to pull back from their cellphones, and computers giving their time back to God. This is not just a designated amount of time that we set aside for God. We set aside the entire day. That is, every action and every thought are brought before the Lord before we act upon it or before we dwell upon the thought. This will take discipline, remembering to ask God for our daily marching orders. It will take discipline to always ask, “what would Jesus do,” before every action? We don’t hear much about discipline these days but it’s essential if we are serious about living the fulfilled life. Discipline is doing what is right through continuous practice, again and again. We will start with the least difficult discipline and then move to the more challenging. This Christian discipline opens the door to a blissful life in Christ beyond the comprehension of the natural man. It opens the door to a fulfilled life in Christ.

Let me introduce you, once again, to our God of all creation. Our God is not angry, nor is He vengeful. On the other hand, He is a God of peace, love, and joy. So, our first discipline for all of life is, “Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice” (Philippians 4:4). The operative word here is “always.” When we first receive Christ in our lives this is a very easy thing to do, “rejoice in the Lord.” However, in time as we run continuously into the hatefulness and depressing sadness of the world, it becomes more difficult. So, it must become a discipline of remembering all that God has done for us through His amazing providence, where He has, on a number of occasions, worked everything out for the best. It’s also remembering that God is our wonderful counselor and the worker of astonishing miracles snatching people from the fiery pits of hell, all of which bring great joy to our hearts. This great joy established in time is beyond anything we will ever experience. The early Christians were known as happy people who were always rejoicing in the Lord turning the world upside down. As you rejoice in the Lord, you too will witness its profound effect upon the world, causing them to ask, “Why are you so different.” The key to living the fulfilled life in Christ is having God always walking with us in our great joy openly and sincerely expressed to the world.

The second discipline that must be practiced every moment of every day, in every situation is, “Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand” (Philippians 4:5). As already stated, these get a bit more difficult as we proceed, but not impossible for God’s elect children. Our greatest motivator for remaining pure in an impure world is remembering that the “Lord is at hand.” This not only means that God can come back at any moment, which He can, but it also means that He is observing our every behavior, good or bad. The clear interpretation of this word “moderation” is that our behavior and character should be so solidified in Christ that nothing could sway us to participate in the world’s unruly or unethical behavior. It’s difficult to take one step into the world and not be tempted by those around you, either in person, in print, or on the cellphone. So, we must be constantly aware of this, so that we can immediately turn away, not gaze upon it, or participate in it. This is crucial if you are serious about having God walk with you every moment of every day, which is our true path to living a fulfilled life in Christ. The wonders that God wants to show you are well beyond what the world has to offer. There is nothing that can match the mystery of God’s beautiful creation and the re-created life of a sinner reflecting His wonderous glory. Living the fulfilled live is truly a foretaste of heaven on earth.

Are you ready for the third discipline? The English Standard Version of the Bible says, “do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God” (Philippians 4:6). This is a hard saying for those who are living their own lives according to their decisions, their schedules, and their planning. These people will always have anxiety and even stress because things simply aren’t working out as they had planned. The pressure to follow their desires, not accomplished, sends them straight to the counselor’s office or pleading with their doctors for more medication because they have discovered that stress can cause physical problems. By the time we get to the third discipline, we should already be practicing the first two, which opens our eyes to God’s beautiful providential plan for our lives. So, if we see things not working out, that’s creating anxiety, then we need to earnestly pray again asking for God’s perfect plan and His will in the specific circumstance that we are facing. When we pray in faith believing, the Bible says, “And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7). We will never live the fulfilled life in Christ if we allow stress or anxiety to re-enter our lives taking us hostage to do the will of the enemy. So, dear children, follow onlyGod’s beautiful plans for your lives allowing Him to walk with you every moment of every day, then you will experience His magnificent peace that defies understanding.

The final discipline that allows us to experience the fulfilled life in Christ is to put a sentinel at the gate of our minds to examine every thought that seeks to enter. Yes, this is the most difficult but not impossible for God’s elect children. This can be especially difficult when we are out among the pagan but don’t be fooled, evil thoughts can come at any time, catching you completely off-guard. So, we must walk with God, every moment of every day. The Bible says, “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things” (Philippians 4:8). So, we must always cast our minds onto those things that please the Lord. It is helpful to always ask the question of every thought that wants to enter our mind, “Is this thought pleasing to the Lord?” And if the answer is no, then cast it out immediately; don’t dwell on it for even a millisecond. Cast it out!  When we follow these blessed disciplines, they will help us to walk closer to the Lord, Jesus Christ, which will lead us to experience the fulfilled life beyond our wildest dreams. All glory to God.
