Spiritual Warfare Ramps Up with Many Christians Becoming More Deceived, Distracted and Weak

If You Don’t Know God and His Word, You Will Be Deceived and You Will be Lost!

“For many are called, but few are chosen” -Matt 22:14 (KJV)

“Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” -Matt 7:14 (KJV)

We in America live in a culture rich with technology and material wealth. We have  many freedoms although some are being stripped away even as I write this. Christians are being targeted from a broad range of sources but who is aware and even more startling who cares? It’s the political ‘left’ against the conservative ‘right’ and it’s getting uglier by the week. But why is this happening here in the land of the free where at one time men feared and respected Almighty God? The answer is simple for those that are in touch with their Bibles … the answer can be found in covert deceit and deception on an ever-widening and increasing scale. We can see the results of this in most cases but what is occurring behind the scenes … in the spiritual realm?

“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven … And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” -Matt 7:21, 23 (KJV)

There is a clandestine spiritual dumbing down of Christians here in America and for that matter in many nations of the world! Why? Because Christians fail to regularly read their Bibles and pray, because they do not know the God of the Bible, because they are not taught or aware of the schemes of the Devil. And as a result they are being covertly caught in the web of his cunning and wicked snares.

This is no joke!!

I see it everywhere – in and out of church. Oh yes, many go to church, sing a few songs and hear a soft, mushy, watered-down, non-engaging, no-repentance, tickling-ear Gospel but rarely get any spiritual meat! They never hear about their sin and how you must repent in order to enter the Kingdom of God – Matt 3:2; Mark 1:15; Luke 13:1-5. In fact, many Christians or those who call themselves the same, don’t want to discuss or even talk about the Lord.

How sad is this?

Are they ashamed or embarrassed of Him … look out – Luke 9:26. Many care more of what people say of them than what the Lord thinks of them and how they live. Why? They have little knowledge of who God is, they display little faith, respect and fear of the Lord. This produces weak and ineffective Christians with no knowledge of the spiritual armor and spiritual weapons at their disposal. They are prime wide-open targets for the Enemy of their Soul – Satan! And mark these words he is after you like a roaring lion seeking to devour your soul – 1 Pet 5:8

“Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices (schemes).” -2 Cor 2:11 (KJV, emphasis added)

As this spiritual warfare continues, Christians are being blinded and distracted [by the things of this world] from the truths found in the word of God and many don’t even realize it. With current events fulfilling Bible Prophecy in ever increasing detail, people, it seems, could care less. They have been trapped and snared into lethargy and apathy, mocking and scoffing at those that proclaim He is soon to return. Many only care about their possessions, wealth or positions of importance. The Devil has deceived many into believing these are not the last days, the Lord will not return, Israel is not important any more and we are safe and secure in our land. HA! Many have and are falling for these lies. We live in a volatile and dangerous world with nations now wanting our demise.

But who in America – who in Christendom knows of these things and who cares? Are these things ever mentioned from our church pulpits? I dare say NO they are not! Why? Cowardly pastors fear offending the people. How many of these lily-livered pastors care enough about their flock to tell them the [yes, offensive] truths of our Lord?

So, you see, Satan’s warfare against Christians continues almost unabated and with his cunning and ruthless tactics keenly developed over thousands of years he advances against us with fear, distractions and deceptions of all kinds. He pursues us with the weight and cares of our lives deepening and as a result we become numb and blind to the truth right in front of us – 2 Cor 4:4. Christians have become weak, sickly and deceived more so than at any time in the past, hugely apathetic and as such they are ripe for the fiery darts from principalities in high places (Eph 6:12). We need to wake up and don our spiritual armor and take a stand for Christ. Know Him, know His will, read His word daily without fail.

It’s also time we stood on His word for His promises are clear and in faith we must stand strong. We are not to cower to the Devil’s ploys against us – sicknesses, worry, doubt, despair, guilt, fear, etc – these things make us weak and timid and shows the faith of God does not rule in our hearts and minds and this is not pleasing to Him – Heb 11:6. Stand up Christian – pray in faith, take the authority and power the Lord has given you and use it! (Luke 10:19). Pray for family and friends in faith, in belief – do it daily, never give up and never be discouraged. Do not be distracted, pray without ceasing, peel back weakness and walk by faith and not by sight – 2 Cor 5:7.

And then …? Know your enemy! If you don’t know his tactics and schemes you will be destroyed – he will take you down! I’m not talking just physically, I am also speaking eternally. For if you do not trust in the Lord and have faith in Him, you may fall away to the world and as a result you may not see the Kingdom of God – Prov 2:13; Eze 18:24; 2 Pet 2:20-21; 1 Tim 4:1; Rev 2:4-5. This prospect should shake your soul to its core! (I do not believe in nor support the “once saved, always saved” doctrine as I find no evidence for it in the Word of God.)

“If you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles… if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.” – Sun Tzu (“The Art of War” – 6th century BC)

 

Friends, it’s time for a sense of URGENCY! Throw off your garment of apathy concerning Christ and His soon return. Pastor’s start warning your people as to the signs flashing like red lights at a railroad crossing. The hour is late and for those that aren’t paying attention He will come as a thief in the night – 1 Th 5:1-4.  It’s time we got into our Bible and read it! Study it daily and immerse ourselves in the Lord. Pray, fast, seek His face and learn from His Holy Spirit. Now is the time, for the world will not get better, it will only get worse as prophesied in the Book of Revelation (and others). It’s time for Christians to heed the call to watch and witness of His soon return; the signs are here and others coming fast, we must be awake prepared with our lamps full of oil ready for the return of the Bridegroom – Jesus Christ . We must be like the five wise virgins and not the five foolish ones (read the parable in Matt 25:1-13). We must be alert and warn others; we must know our Bibles; we must know who the enemy of our soul is so we can turn him back with our spiritual weapons. Do not be weak, do not be lethargic in your faith. Be strong in the power of the Lord – Eph 6:10. Are you saved? If not, why not?

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” -Eph 6:10-12

THE KING IS COMING! Are You Ready?

Do Not Give Place To Fear For God Is Our Refuge, Our Strength, Our Song

Fiery Darts of Fear – Put on the Full Armor of God

“For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline.” -2 Tim 1:7 (NASB)

The uncertainty of things today hangs like a never-ending fog over nations and people. We live in perilous (difficult, harsh) times and their accompanying effects have many people in the bondage of terrible fear. Fear is engulfing the world at an alarming rate and it will not subside as foretold in Bible Prophecy (BP). So we must know what to do about its cause and effects and how to overcome it.

Our leaders, and for that matter most people, have lost their fear of Almighty God and therefore have succumbed to evil, wickedness and lawlessness. BP foretells that in the last days many would fall away from the faith and therefore plunge headlong into the grip of the world. Friends, I write what I see, hear and read about and am pulling no punches in this writing. We have way too many pulpits silent to what’s happening across mankind – lack of love, lawlessness, wickedness, rumors of wars, famines, pestilences, etc – and fail to tell their flocks the rock solid truth of God’s word and how to prepare as these times we live in ramp up and get worse. Yes, it’s not good news and its alarming but we must remember God is in control over everything; mankind must suffer these things because of unconfessed and unrepentant sin. If you belong to God and He knows your name, then as times get worse count on the Lord to be your strength and your song (sing the praises of the Psalms when you are afraid). Praise His Holy name when you are caught in a fearful situation. Praise Him!

Take for example this CV virus … look at what is becoming of our world with ruthless and Godless leaders with the wicked media cramming fear, guilt, worry and falsehood down our throats to make us live in fear and succumb to the narrative. Did you ever hear anything like this for the seasonal flu that hits mankind every year and kills tens of thousands? Crickets! But this current virus and now the never-ending [absurd] lineup of variants … are all designed to keep us in constant fear so we can be controlled and bend to all the evil dictates they throw at us. Heck, just examine the worse than Hitler tactics being used against people in Australia and Austria and now in France, Canada and many other nations. These leaders that impose such fear and suppression on their people are led by the hellish demonic hoards poisoning their hearts, minds and souls and suppressing right thinking and righteous reason. And all this designed and orchestrated to keep us in endless fear.

So what do we as Christians do…?

 

We stop and listen to God, to His Spirit and read His Word! We pray and we sing songs of deliverance. We stand strong in our faith; we must not give in an inch to the fear imposed on us by the Godless leaders in positions of authority. If you believe in God and believe He is with you and in control then to continue in fear is not walking in His will. Yes, at times, we have all fallen into fear but it’s what you do with that fear that separates the “real” Christians from the CINO’s (Christians in Name Only).

Fear will paralyze your faith, it will immobilize your resolve and keep you in constant bondage!

 

Break free of this fear and let your faith shine before God and His Son, Jesus Christ. Why? Without faith it’s impossible to please Him – Heb 11, God has not given us a spirit of fear but of … 2 Tim 1:7, Perfect love casts out all fear – 1 John 4:18

Friends, these days and the days yet to come will be filled with fearful events and situations so we must put our full trust in the Lord Jesus Christ with no exceptions and no excuses. The enemy of our soul will bombard us daily with fiery darts/arrows of fear, guilt and worry. We must not give place to any of his well-tuned and well-defined tactics of fear.

Fear will melt your faith like an ice cream cone on a blistering hot summer day.

Instead stand strong in the Lord, in His power not yours. We do not have the ability, nor thinking, nor power in ourselves to tell the Devil to take a hike. We must speak the name of Jesus over every situation and use the power that He has given us to ward off and quench the fiery darts of fear the Devil throws at us. This virus is no exception. If you give in to his means of deceptive control, he will throw you to the ground – weak, afraid and as a powerless warrior of the Cross. Many people have fallen for his tricks of deceit and are living in the bondage of fear right now. They have no discerning between good and evil, most likely have a weak prayer life and fail to read God’s Word on a daily basis. As such these people are targets for Satan’s arrows; do not be one of these.

Stand strong in the power of His might!!!!

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11- Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. ” -Eph 6:10-11 (ESV)

Whatever you are facing do not face it in only your strength, face it with God at the helm of your life for He is at your right hand if you are on of His.

“I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.” -Psa 16:8 (KJV)

Amen.

PERILOUS TIMES: Hate, Lawlessness, Wickedness Now Reigns in America – Matt 24

Most Elected Leaders Are Godelss – Filled With Hate, Bitterness and Evil

“And at that time many will fall away, and they will betray one another and hate one another … And because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will become cold.” -Matt 24:10, 12 (NASB)

There once was a nation whose God was the Lord God Almighty and they lived in peace, in obedience to His word, followed His commandments, sent missionaries all over the world, fearlessly spread the Gospel and led others to Christ. This nation became, in record time, a major superpower across the globe and led the world in its economy and morality. This nation excelled in righteousness, goodness and in Biblical principles. This nation was called America but is rapidly, at now an accelerated pace, falling away from God and embracing evil and wickedness, lies, and hatred. Our spiritual trajectory is on an almost parallel course to that of other pagan and Godless nations (i.e. China, Russia, Iran, NKorea).

We are buckling under a world-class demonic tyranny that hasn’t been seen since WWII. Wicked leaders radically imposing tyrannical methods to achieve a total [mindless] inoculation of a wicked, ineffective, demonic, jab that is killing and maiming people without care for human life. With lockdowns that do nothing and mask-wearing that does more damage than not. And who is behind all this? Who has drafted and exercised such advanced war-gaming to stay just ahead of rational thought of a conservative, Christian mindset…?

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. ” -Eph 6:12 (NASB)

 

This has been orchestrated by higher powers, principalities in heavenly places that have possessed men and women across the globe. And the US is not exempt! We have ruthless, Godless, wicked men and women in charge that are following the orders of their spiritual wicked handlers. And all this is happening right in front of our eyes but even those that call themselves staunch Christians, and weekly church-goers can’t see through the lawless maize or fog or even a web of deceit setup against and permeating society at all levels.

The Christian church – the last bastion of prayer, strength and defense against this wickedness and lawlessness – is sick, feeble, weak, timid and hiding.

 

Many, many of our Christian churches are without any semblance of a backbone to stand up to the radical tyranny now leading our states and our national government. This is a tragedy against humanity. Instead of our Christian churches leading a strong spiritual defense against this onslaught of evil, they are hiding with most agreeing, promoting and sanctioning what’s going on. Unbelievable!! Even a well-known Christian speaker, author and leader is urging people to get this death-shot.

And now the “thief” (Satan forces directing evil-filled men and women) has entered our midst – “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 (KJV)

 

All this is bringing America down so fast, like a freight train off the track about to wreck. Americans have been deceived big time! Most just go along with the lying MSM and continue posting secular “garbage” on FB. Those that do stand up and post the truth on other social platforms face the “cancel culture” and censorship that now is off the charts.

“But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. 2- For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3- heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, 4- treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power.” -2 Tim 3:1-5 (ESV)

All this being said has brought America and Americans and especially Christians to a precipice of … the next shoe to drop. Most live in fear these days with the onslaught of virus lies and overblown untruths. Most here have also been deceived big time. 

Perilous and difficult times are now staring right in the face! So what now…?

America MUST return to Almighty God!! We must start now!!! Perilous times are here as you can see manifesting in the behavior of people. Hate and wickedness fill the halls of Congress and the streets and homes of our cities. If certain things go according to the evil agenda at hand, America is being overrun with millions of “strangers” invading our land due to a senseless opening of our borders. This in itself is insane and should be a red-flag flying in the faces of all Americans that something very nefarious is happening to our nation. This will put us real Americas in a very precarious position – loss of our jobs, or no jobs, more welfare paid when we can’t afford it now, crime, disease, and the list goes on! Get ready, be ready as this is now upon us! No scare – just prepare!

Friends, America, Americas and yes, even Christians need God back at the helm of our national life,  individual lives and in our churches. Today, here and now! The time is now where we MUST change our course and head back to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. For today is the day of salvation. Folks, one day the door to the Age of Grace, in which we live now, will be shut (remember the 5 foolish virgins of Matt 25) and then times will get extremely difficult for all left here on earth. I am speaking of the rapture of His Bride – the real and truth surrendered and dedicated men and women who call themselves real and true Christians when they will depart this earth in the twinkling of an eye. Once this happens, and it will happen, those left here will face insurmountable troubles. But even during this time many will be saved but in tumultuous times. Bottom – line – it won’t be pretty!!

Today is the day of salvation saith the Lord -1 Cor 6:2. Seek Him today everyone to receive the free gift of salvation or to renew your commitment to Him and then complete surrender to His will. Read your Bible!

Amen!
