I am talking about general grace which shined in the world, even for those who had never seen him nor known him… The Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus told that the light in the world doth shine; and that we must work while we have that light for the gospel’s sake – who is Christ crucified: to paraphrase.
Yet I believe the time how now come, of darkness, and gross darkness in the world’s people. This darkness will remain until the Lord Jesus Christ comes again to judge the living and the dead. People will want the mountains to fall onto them and be covered from this light – who is Christ returned, the scripture teaches, but there will be no escape on that great and awful day.
It seems to me that this is where we are in human history; any Godly behavior is looked upon as fanatical or even hateful, yet in actuality it is a love for the truth, which drives the disciple and not scorn. Evil becomes good and good becomes evil. Everything is 180% out of sync with Gods order, and liberty: as Satan’s people now rule over the earth, with no restraints from the Holy Spirit. This will not be put right again, till Christ returns with his Bride, to rule and reign with a rod of Iron.
Some will say – don’t be ridiculous, we don’t even believe in God (until Satan appears as God) or maybe, that we are evolving socially or physiologically. Yet what Peoples have believed, makes little difference to what actually exists; (all be it most people are blind and dumb spiritually speaking) – so what they refuse, or can’t see, WILL – still hurt them one day: and they’ll be no escape from eternal fire.
What is OFFENSIVE has always depended upon whose perspective, the so-called offense is viewed from. As an example, Murder has traditionally been seen as an offence in most societies of the past around the world, in making a blanket statement. Yet today, it is offensive to say that abortion is murder to many: or that beheadings is wrong, depending upon the relativism of the offence as viewed by those who insult the wicked warlord. Cannibalism is an extremely offensive and deprived practice, yet in the past, in some places considered normal. The world today seems to be getting more depraved; because of the rise of rebellion against God and sin. Yet to a humanist, this progression seems grand and “absolutely” right.
Homosexuality was once considered offensive, and an indecent and depraved practice, a gross sin of sexual promiscuity. Yet today, for anyone to openly say it is offensive is considered wrong, and damned near illegal! A woman’s place is in the home, is now offensive to say – and don’t try to introduce levity by saying something like “boobs and a badge” or a “dick’less Tracy”, when referring to women in law enforcement. This would definitely be defined as sexist / offensive and would probably cost you your career or even worse! Same thing within our Armed Forces nowadays; yet our enemy doesn’t care, he will exploit any weakness which he can, and doesn’t care about one’s feelings in these matters, hell he might even cut off your head! I can give many examples in what is considered offensive to some, is perfectly just and right, to another. Years ago, the mixing of people’s was considered wrong – in that God separated the Peoples of the world: Yet today, this is perfectly acceptable, and is even being promoted slowly by progressives, with the goal of procreation for a single race of people; or the so called theory goes, (man wanting to play God). Power has become “god” not conscience, and “the children of the devil” (unregenerate) will justify any behavior, for any reason, which suites their cause.
The reason for this is not that the ultimate authority (the Lord God) has moved: but rather that mankind is allowed to become more depraved than ever before; as “all the restraints have come off”! Jesus taught that in these days, many would be cast into prison for his namesake. These are just a few examples as to why the gross darkness has come – which must come – prior to Satan’s short reign on earth, the destruction of Babylon by God and his People, and the Great White Throne Judgment.
Keep your lamps full of oil, it will be a dark season, prior to the Bride Grooms’ return.
Nation against Nation (Ethos) and Kingdom against Kingdom. The End.
