As the world currently continues to see the darkness of our times I write this. I don’t have a ton of fancy words or a perfectly crafted poetic piece to offer. Nor any attempt to present some form of wisdom through this. Just the unfiltered Biblical truth that is hard to read.
The current state of things happening in the world are actually not new. All of these things have been in existence within this world since the beginning of time. The difference is God has allowed several of these issues to live exposed. Exposed not to just those of the world, but even those of the faith. We are seeing preachers, celebrities, even seeing our family and friends be forced to live without the mask we were so accustom to them with. This is because Revelation isn’t a over-glorified word to sound biblical. When Revelations was written it was called such due to its revealing of the times to come. Well…This is the next phase of those times prophesied.
This is foolishness to the world. But to the those of Christ we see the folly in their thinking. If we truly have the Holy Spirit we sorrow for their souls as they know not the true depths the consequences will be for the choices being made. For those that claim the faith and live as though ignorant of it. Our sorrow is greater for them as the consequences are beyond our comprehension. Be not deceived. To much is given, much is required. The peace of Christ is not with those that cannot depart from the world. We were told to depart from this world. Now we see why!! How can you have the peace of Christ if any part of you be in this world? That part of you will see the judgements of this world plainly, and you will feel the things it feels when it comes upon it.
Think of it like a relationship. If you be in a relationship with an angry, and jealous person you feel the ways of that person in your life. Now if you depart from that person you no longer will be subjected to it. Yet if you continue with that person, their very ways will become yours. So depart from the world. Let the one that understands, understand.
So what shall anyone say to this then? Love each other just as Christ commanded. Truly love one another. We have heard that life is but fleeing us all. Not one of us knows the hour of our own day. Be not consumed by the horrors of the times. You can only rejoice in these times by way of Gods Holy Spirit within you. This is foolishness to the world. Yet they see the uncertainty of life currently. They see the fragility of their lifestyles currently. They feel the sadness and fear of such times. Yet they resist the truth through it.
This is because my dear brothers and sisters Satan has created his own form of love for them. His own form of peace. His own form of family, sexuality, truth, and life. Satan has his own version of all the things of God. So be careful!! 35Be careful, then, that the light within you is not darkness.
20Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter!
21Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
and shrewd in their own sight!
I judge not but reveal what is already written about this world. The world confirms these judgements by judging itself in rejection of its words.
I leave this writing to say simply, yes. Yes we are in the last days as prophesied. These are different times than generations before. This is due to the open agreement society has with the ways of Satan. His own form of love for them. His own form of peace. His own form of family, sexuality, truth, and life. So don’t attempt to comfort yourself with thoughts of things going back to normal. Remember what normal you are referring to!
This comfort can only be received by those that are His. For only they know Him truly. Therefore offense does not come upon them when truth is read, heard or spoken.
May the peace of Christ be with you my brothers and sisters in Christ
