Those discerning the signs of the times know the spirit of Antichrist is multiplying in humanity at an increasingly unrestrained rate, for, “you know what [God] is restraining, that he [Antichrist] may be revealed in his own time” (2 Thess. 2:6). Jesus said “as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the in the days of the Son of Man” (Luke 17:26). In the days of Noah “the earth was filled with violence” (Gen. 6:11). Increasingly, we are seeing the same today.
But in Christ “He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4). And, “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High [the condition precedent to] shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty” (Psa. 91:1). While it’s true that no one knows “the day or hour” of Christ’s return, that doesn’t negate the necessity for saints to know what we must endure getting to “the first resurrection” (Rev. 20:4–6), “at the last day” (John 6:40, 44, 54), because Christ “must remain in heaven until the time comes for God to restore everything” (Acts 3:21 NIV).
People of the U.S. are witnessing its societal destruction by elite globalists. History is being rewritten. Violence is the new norm. Lies abound. Gender neutrality is now the celebrated hatred for God. Freedoms, and especially of speech, are being destroyed on the guise of crushing “hate speech” while sin, lawlessness and perversions are protected. God foretold this and much more.
From Gatestone Institute 10/21/2017: “Germany: Full Censorship Now Official”. The article says, “Germany has made no secret of its desire to see its new law copied by the rest of the EU. When employees of social media companies are appointed as the state’s private thought police and given the power to shape the form of current political and cultural discourse by deciding who shall be allowed to speak and what to say, and who shall be shut down, free speech becomes nothing more than a fairy tale. Or is that perhaps the point?”
Gatestone, continues, “A new German law introducing state censorship on social media platforms came into effect on October 1, 2017. The new law requires social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, to censor their users on behalf of the German state. Social media companies are obliged to delete or block any online “criminal offenses” such as libel, slander, defamation or incitement, within 24 hours of receipt of a user complaint — regardless of whether the content is accurate or not. Social media companies receive seven days for more complicated cases. If they fail to do so, the German government can fine them up to 50 million euros for failing to comply with the law.” This is the New World Order at work.
Censorship laws are also descending on America, and Christians must be certain of who they serve. Homosexuals are allowed to sue Christian bakeries for refusing to bake cakes celebrating same-sex marriage. Christian bakeries are being sued by Satanists for refusing to bake cakes celebrating Lucifer; and public schools are being turned into centers of anti-Christ propaganda celebrating the occult, homosexuality and transgenderism.
The result? God’s end-time judgments are descending upon America and other nations. The many “natural” disasters of fires, floods, earthquakes and volcanoes, devastating thousands of homes, families and communities worldwide is anything but natural. It’s God, shaking this evil world, calling people’s attention to their unbelief, and to their evil, self-destructive ways.
Very dark and harsh days are ahead, but most pastors now also censor voluminous truths of the end-times. We live in a Christian culture where fear of losing numbers supersede the preaching of “All Scripture” (2 Tim. 3:16), especially the third about the end-time that Christ taught, warning that it’s, “he who endures to the end shall be saved” (Matt. 24:13). It’s spiritually telling of our evil day that Jesus’ end-time teachings are censored by many pastors and teachers, preferring a distracting and lighter toned venue than the difficult time of the end.
Consider: would a calculus student succeed if difficult levels of math were not taught? Would a pre-med student succeed if difficult biological truths were ignored? Would an engineering student succeed if difficult design truths were abandoned? Likewise, on what basis, then, shall Christians endure the end-times if the material relative to it is not thoroughly taught?
Consequently, you might ask, “So what can I do?” In the midst of today’s biblical censorship, miss-information and ignorance, here’s what God says: “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever, for in YAH, the Lord, is everlasting strength” (Isa. 26:3–4). But that requires you to personally study God’s end-time truths because most church leaders, pastors and teachers will not teach those critical truths.
God does not want you to experience shock, awe and offense at calamitous tribulations of the end-times, but to be fully equipped, knowledgeable and prepared for all those things that are coming; things that will challenge even the strongest of saints to stand firm in the faith, and not yield to the evil dictates of the culture in which we live. But to do that we must first believe God.
God promises to “keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You”. But in the midst of His promise to keep you in “perfect peace”, do you see the condition precedent to you keeping your mind “stayed on the Lord God”? God’s promises are conditional upon believers actually believing and participating willfully with God, for He will not force you against your will.
I call your attention to consider that God said, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Tim. 3:16–17). Not just some, but “All Scripture…” is inspired by God. Yet, God’s end-time message is being censored by most. Why? There’s only one agent behind the censorship of “All Scripture” – Satan, because he doesn’t want God’s conditional salvation and end-time truths revealed.
