The Last War to be Waged on Earth

As the battle lines are drawn between North Korea and the United States there is a greater battle to be waged. As the battle lines are drawn between the liberals and conservatives there is a greater battle to be waged. As the battle lines are drawn between those who want to make Jerusalem the capital of Israel and those who don’t there is a greater battle to be waged. A battle of all battles that will end life on earth as we now know it. This last war to be waged on earth is between the children of Light and the sons of darkness. This will not be your typical battle. Nuclear and biological weapons will not suffice. Protests and marches will have no effect. Even putting together a digital army in the millions, will not change the outcome. The last war to be waged on earth will be directed by God, our true Commander in Chief. A war that will truly defeat the enemy and scuttle the sons of darkness. God is doing and will continue to do His part. He is calling His children, the children of Light, to do their part.

We will discuss our part first, then God’s part. Believe me, the saying is true you will either be for us or against us, there will be no sitting on the fence. Fence sitting is reserved for the lukewarm church and believe me you do not want to be a part of that group! The Bible says concerning the lukewarm church, “So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth” (Revelation 3:16). To be cast out as unbelievers into utter darkness. To experience the horrible consequences of pure evil, a filth that cannot be easily washed off. The good news however is that even this last representative church on earth has a chance to repent. The Bible says, “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock; If any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me” (Revelation 3:19-20). To do so will allow you to become a true child of Light and join Him in the last battle here on earth.

Yes, we still have a chance to become true children of Light and join Jesus Christ in the battle. Amen. To be a true child of Light there must not be any darkness at all. The Bible says, “For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light” (Ephesians 5:8). So, to walk as children of Light we must get rid of, turn from, all evil. To not look on it or embrace it. Of course, the Bible tells the new believers how to do it. To put off the old sin filled life and in the place of it put on the new life modeled after Christ. Embrace and model the new Christian attributes, the fruit of the Spirit, which is, love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance (See Galatians 5:22-23). To do so in time will see a full harvest of this Spiritual fruit. It will not be long before you realize all that’s in the world, everything taught and practiced, is opposed to your Christian faith. For now we are children of Light and can no longer walk in darkness.

So, how do we join the battle? The Bible says, “The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light” (Romans 13:12). Putting on the armor of Light clearly indicates that we have cast off the works of darkness, which means we are no longer participating in the works of darkness. We no longer listen to their teachings or entertainment that mock God. No longer do we allow our children or grandchildren to listen to their teachings or entertainment that mock God. To teach evolution in their schools or in their entertainment mocks God. It’s also a mockery to teach and accept their other lifestyles of homosexuality and the transgender, the killing of unborn children, and their other so-called gods. Trust me, the Muslims are not the Klingons and their religion does not deserve our respect. We simply can no longer listen to the lies of this age. To do so is a mockery and clearly dims our Light and puts us on the fence with the lukewarm church. If we are not with Him, then we are truly against Him in the battle being waged against the powers of darkness.

To put on the armor of Light projects the Light of God. The Light of God is His holiness for all to see. To project this Light is to project everything good and decent. Everything that He has done and doing for His beloved children. To just say that God has saved us misses all the beauty of that salvation. He has saved us from the powers of the enemy. We are no longer held captive by his lies. We have been set free to live a brand-new life in Christ. The Bible says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (II Corinthians 5:17). To believe the lies of the enemy, that you still need to grapple with your old life, calls God a liar. God said if you are in Christ (a believer) then you are a new creation; the old has gone. To believe the lies of the enemy, that you need the world’s counsel, is to call God a liar, because He said that He has given us everything we need for life and godliness. To be a child of Light and join Him in the battle we must believe His teachings and not the world’s. Furthermore, we have the Gift of the Holy Spirit who comes bearing Spiritual Gifts to protect, encourage and lead us, His children, to victory over the enemy and his lies. Beyond the physical realm there is the Spiritual where we must also take the battle, which I have written extensively about in my book Stand Firm, but beyond the scope of this article. We soon discover that the enemy is powerless to overcome the Gospel message proclaimed boldly by all His children, children of the Light.

Now for God’s part. We must come out from among them. The Bible says, “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” (Revelation 18:4). The good news is, if we heed the angel’s voice and truly come out as stated above, proving ourselves to be children of Light, then we will not receive of her plagues (See also I Thessalonians 5:9). On the other hand, if we don’t heed the angel’s voice and continue living in darkness, we will experience the full measure of God’s wrath along with the rest of fallen humanity. Take a moment and read through the book of Revelation or listen to it on Tribulation Radio every night. Friends, God’s wrath is serious and should give everyone a wake-up call. Let me be clear that God’s wrath is not meant to punish, that will come later, but to open the eyes of the unbelievers. Our job as the children of Light is to let the world know what’s happening, to encourage them to accept the truth claims of the Gospel. We must work hand in hand with God, in this last war to be waged on earth. Amen

Formidable Voice to a Divided World

Should there be unity among all believers? This question has captivated the heart of man since the time of Christ. The Catholic church still embraces this notion of unity, but now allows great diversity among its ranks. The evangelical church has splintered off into a multitude of denominations each with their own exclusive doctrines and practices shunning the rest. This has also given rise to other fringe groups producing both fanatical and the heretical. Yet, Jesus Christ prayed for unity among all true believers, that they would be one as the Father and the Son are One, in unity of thought and action. Jesus went on to say that this unity among true believers would be a witness to the world that He was sent by the Father. Unity among all true believers would be a witness! Let me suggest that this would be a very powerful witness to a dying world that has all but rejected Jesus Christ as the only Savior. The voice of Christians and the diversity of His churches has had little effect upon the world. No one is listening. Yet they listen to the heathen in protest, while their numbers are very small, their voices are united. The unrighteous minority has had a profound effect upon the direction of this country, while the Christian Church has had almost none. Christian unity can have a formidable voice to a divided world, but before we continue it’s necessary to deal with the one objection that many have in our day when discussing unity.

The Crucible of Brotherly Love

We all know that the hallmark of true Christianity is love. Love for God and love for our fellow man and especially for our brother or sister in Christ. Jesus Christ was our greatest example of this kind of love. He fought against the vicious wolves of His day who were destroying the sheep with their human traditions and false doctrine. He stood toe to toe with them not to win an argument, but to protect those who were put into His care by the Heavenly Father. For the sake of the sheep He confronted the blind guides, He argued against the established order, and exposed their dangerous doctrines that kept people in bondage to their human traditions. His love was so great that He healed the sick, cured horrible diseases, made whole the lame, restored eyesight to the blind, and drove out demons that were holding people in bondage. His love was so great for all of His followers that He spent many hours every day teaching the truth about life and liberty. Not only did He want to restore the broken bodies and free their minds from their enslavement to the devil, but He also wanted them to experience the new life – a bountiful life free from anxiety and the stresses of everyday life. Finally, He paid the ultimate price by offering His life as an atoning sacrifice for all those who believe. His love did not stop there, but He made good on His promise to send the Comforter to lead His followers into all truth by reminding them of all that He taught them concerning the new life.  He counted the cost and fulfilled His mission.

Being Sealed Produces Hope

Our article today is called “Being Sealed Produces Hope.” Has anyone noticed that we live in a hopeless generation? As the Doomsday clock clicked two minutes closer to Midnight most wonder if they will survive the coming distress. As the world ponders an increase in global disasters, a nuclear holocaust, worldwide persecution of Christians, or a pandemic the civilization is left with little hope. Anxiety has reached an all-time high. Many are hoping that they will escape the clutches of fanatical terrorist or the terror of evil gangsters roaming our inner-cities. Gun sales have skyrocketed. Many are hoping for financial independence to pay more than the monthly minimum payment, freedom from dependence on the State and its welfare rolls, and the ability to feed and clothe their family. Yet, total dependence upon the State to provide assistance is on the increase. Many others hope for a good marriage that will last, while co-habitation has become the standard. Others hope that they can escape their bondage to the multitude of emotional and psychological problems, yet every day more enter into bondage to worldly counseling and psychiatric drug addiction. The tragedy is that most will not hope beyond what they can see or touch. We live in a hopeless generation! Continue reading Being Sealed Produces Hope

What is the Devil’s Motto?

Today we continue a series of articles that God has given us everything we need for life and godliness.  There’s coming a time when the entire world will be united behind the devil’s representative here on earth, the Beast. Before that can happen every religious and philosophical thought must be brought to naught in the eyes of the world. They must all appear divisive, counterproductive, and worthless in man’s quest for perfection in a new age of enlightenment. All world religions and spiritual quest of a higher power must be soundly defeated in order to bring the entire world to the altar of the Beast.  No longer would man trust in God exclusively. When one looks intently upon the world stage it becomes obvious that the old Devil is dividing the world’s religions by ruthlessly pitting one against another raising up one crusade and then another. Over the Centuries, Millions have died in the name of religion while the world grows ever more noxious and repugnant toward anything called god. Furthermore, it has turned many away from hearing the Gospel when they see the devilish division amongst those who claim to know Jesus Christ as their Savior. George Whitfield wrote in his journals, “What infinite mischief have needless divisions occasioned in the Christian world! Divide et impera (divide and conquer) is the Devil’s motto.” Continue reading What is the Devil’s Motto?
