 The post election world for Christians

What is around the corner for the Body of Christ? I believe that within the next ten years we will be living in a society that will not accept the fundamental teachings of the Bible. How will this play out? We are heading for a time very soon where born again Christians will not be allowed to teach in public schools first, then in any schools. We will be banned from colleges and universities. We will not be allowed on the police force or the armed forces. There will be no government job open to any genuine saint. Media will rid themselves of anyone holding to views that run counter to the popular culture. Homosexuality and your views towards it will be a litmus test in every sphere of life, and not just public life. You will be deemed as unfit parents if you teach the biblical truth that homosexuality is a sin. For homosexuality will move fully into the category of civil rights. No pastor will be able to refuse to marry two men or two women, and if he does, he will lose any official capacity. Christian businesses will be boycotted at the behest of the state and then banned outright.

Now the strange thing is, outside of irony, that none of this will have anything to do with homosexuality in and of itself. No, this has to do with the truth. It's always been about the truth. In every century and in the last two millennium its been about the truth. After the litmus test of homosexuality will come an assault on the great pillar of truth itself. Jesus says " I am the way, the truth and the life and no man comes to the Father but by me." (John 14:6) This, even more so that people's views on sexuality, will be the rod that will be used to strike the backs of every genuine saint. You see, the world will demand that all those who believe that there is only one way to heaven and that all other paths lead to hell, be "put away." And so it will all come down to truth and our love and commitment to it. The thing about truth is, no matter what the subject, whether it was as in previous centuries infant baptism or transubstantiation, its adherents will not yield. Not because they are particularly invested in one subject or the other but they are sold out to all of it and all that it encompasses even to the point of death. And why? Because the genuine saint has fallen in love with Truth. Jesus is the way and in that way we must walk. Jesus is truth and upon His revealed truth we must stand. Jesus is life, and only by walking in Him and standing upon Him can we have that life.

So get ready saints. It will be difficult but is there anything too difficult for God? We will have to persevere and overcome but remember all the promises of the Lord are made to those who overcome and endure till the end. For a long time in the West we saints have had little resistance from the authorities. It will not be so anymore. The Son of man is coming back in all of His glory and the enemy of our soul knows it well. The Lord has prepared a place for us and we must take hold of that place. For those who stand upon the truth have a high tower in the Lord. For those who do not yield to the world but trust the Lord in all their ways, they will have a peace which surpasses all understanding. There are no surprises to God, He knows what is coming against His children and He has equipped us for such a time as this. Hold all things loosely but never let Him go. Esteem not the praises of men and do trust in them, but look to Jesus the author and the finisher of our faith. He and He alone is able to fulfill and complete the work that He has begun in you and He will be faithful to do just that. That part is His work, our part is to trust and obey and we will see that there is no other way.....bro Frank

And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2Th 2:10-12)

 Re: The post election world for Christians

I expressed to Blaine yesterday this sentiment and I'll repeat it here: I'm not nearly as concerned about difficulty and I am deceit/delusion. We can endure difficulty even if it means dying because of it. But, we must have truth in the inward parts or we will not endure the delusions of the coming days. I am convinced (with all respect to our brothers and sisters here who would say otherwise) that we need the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the Pentecostal power from on high, to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit who witnesses to us all truth as it is in Jesus Christ. We will either discern truth or be deluded by the lie. According to the Scripture, it is God who will cause those who do not believe the gospel to believe the lie, it is God who will send strong delusion, just as you, Frank, quoted. My heart shakes already with the fear that I may be one who is lead away from Him, and that my own wife and/or daughter could be such a person. That is what shakes me --- so, God, please fill us with Your Word, the spirit of Christ, and Truth who died and who lives and is coming again.

 Re:

Amen Tim, we can do nothing without His Spirit, being baptized in His Holy Spirit is such a vital part of being in Christ and that without being endued with such power from on high we can do nothing. I always take that truth to be self evident in everything that I write. Those who believe that there is no need to be Baptized in the Holy Spirit or deny the sign gifts of the Spirit I have nothing really to say to other than may the Lord help you because outside of His Spirit we can do nothing especially in the days in which we live where strong delusion is coming upon Christendom...........bro Frank

PS this is not a thread about Baptism in the Holy Spirit, we know ho many times that has been debated here before.

Brother I agree with your OP. But respectfully I don't think we have 10 years left. Maybe 3 to 5. But none the less. We are headed toward darkness. And I pray for the few, the remnant, to awaken and be the kight of Christ in the midst of that darkness.

As usual simply ny thoughts.

 Re:

Bro could be 10 years. I won't quibble over the length of time. All I can say is we're going to looking at all hell breaking loose pretty soon. And it ain't going to be pretty.

Our only sure hope is to trust in Jesus.

My thoughts bro.

You may very well be right so then we had better get busy seeking God for awakening or else there will be a whole generation without any hope.

We can see the gathering clouds and circle the wagons, so to speak, or we can forget about ourselves and cry out for those who are lost and perishing without Christ. It's time to pray and ask God how He would use us to reach our lost, the young ones especially.

In Christ,

My thoughts were also could it even be much closer then 10 years! Tonight at the dinner table I spoke very seriously to my wife and children that God has a plan to end the entire age before the coming of the Lord and that plan is not based on our comfort or situation in life. It is going to come abruptly and ruin all of our plans, but I said we can rejoice that Jesus will be coming and He will bring us to meet with Him in the end.

The world is not going to go on for ever. Excellent words and warnings to us brother Frank. Very few are clearly by the Spirit of God warning the saints that are not associated with filthy lucre and a deception of fear and not true spiritual preparation.

I agree with those who believe that it could happen much sooner than 10 years. I see two possible scenarios both leading to the same conclusion. Scenario number one is that nothing dramatic happens but we keep going down the same road we have been going down as a society. Scenario number two, which I believe a distinct possibility and have written about previously, a catalyst event takes place and everything changes overnight. The building blocks are in place for either scenario...............bro Frank
