From the time that ancient Serpent, the devil, deceived Eve, causing the fall of mankind, Satan’s mission for the next 4,000 years was to destroy the genealogical bloodline through which God’s promised “Seed” of the woman, Christ, would come. Satan’s seed, “giants [Nephilim]…mighty men who were of old” (Gen. 6:4), were the offspring of fallen angels and human women, being Satan’s plan to destroy the Seed of the woman, which failed. Even after Christ was born, Satan tried to destroy Him by Herod killing all the boys aged under two years. But Satan’s plan failed again, and Jesus grew up to fulfill His God-appointed ministry of redeeming mankind, making a way by grace through faith in Christ’s death, burial and resurrection.
Satan, however, is relentless in his quest to be “like the Most High” (Isa. 14:14). After failing to destroy Jesus, Satan then set out to destroy the testimony of Jesus! After all, Christ being raised from the dead and ascended to heaven, Satan’s only course of action was to attack the testimony of Christ and those with faith in His life, death and resurrection. In this, Satan proved successful. Employing the same tactic of 4,000 years earlier, he again tempted the hearts and minds of men and women with thoughts of “Has God indeed said?” (Gen. 3:1). Satan was and is masterful at creating doubt, suspicion, and unbelief of God’s Word.
True Christians were first called “the Way” (Acts 19:9; 19:23; 22:4; 24:14; 24:22). Many years afterward, however, “According to The Moody Handbook of Theology, the official beginning of the Roman Catholic church occurred in 590 CE, with Pope Gregory I.” But the rise of Roman Catholicism introduced many heretic evils, wicked tithes, idolatry and false worship, which the unbelieving and spiritually ignorant world would associate with Christianity. Subsequently, the Catholic Church began its Inquisitions, persecuting and killing those who refused its forced conversion to its corrupt form of Christianity. But in “1517 CE: Martin Luther publishes the 95 Theses, formalizing arguments against Roman Catholic Church doctrines and practices, and effectively marking the beginning of the Protestant separation from the Catholic Church.” And from that Protestant rebellion, today has grown over 45,000 Christian denominations because they can’t agree on God’s Word! It’s the continued evidential work of Satan to destroy the testimony of Jesus, each denomination having its own doctrines and traditions, created, not by God, but by men and women who lord their beliefs over others.
But Jesus said “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’” (Matt. 7:21–23). Understand that God and His Christ are not divided. And any who would teach otherwise will be visited by God’s wrath. Consider the following:
For one act of unbelief, the human race fell from grace, desperately needing God’s redemption.
For one act of unbelief, over 3,000 Israelites going to Canaan, perished at the foot of Mt. Sinai.
For one act of unbelief, a 40-year generation of Israelites perished outside their Promised Land.
For one act of unbelief, Moses, the leader of Israel, was denied entry into that Promised Land.
For one act of unbelief, Judas Iscariot, sold out Jesus for money and went to his eternal doom.
For one act of unbelief, God struck dead Ananias and Sapphira for lying to the Holy Spirit.
For one act of unbelief, Hymenaeus and Philetus overthrew the resurrection faith of some.
In warning, God’s Spirit said “For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book” (Rev. 22:18–19). And, God also said “I am the LORD, I do not change” (Mal. 3:6). In warning, God’s Spirit said “he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him” (John 3:36b). So, I ask in the love of Christ, “Who do you believe regarding Christ gathering His elect at the rapture: Jesus the Son of God, or the conjecture and assumptions and wishes of a man-made pre-trib rapture tradition that has not one verse of Scriptural support?”
What more inspiration do we need to ensure that we do not destroy the testimony of Jesus by excluding oneself from His Word and directing it to Christ-hating, unbelieving Jews? Yet, that’s exactly what the church has largely done with the testimony of Jesus Christ for the end-times. Tradition has convinced millions of believers that Jesus’ message of gathering His elect saints “Immediately after the tribulation of those days” (Matt. 24:29–31) pertains only to unbelieving Jews! It’s heresy! Pre-tribbers hide their own unbelief in the mask of dispensationalism which has its roots in a man’s perverse dream that destroys the testimony of Jesus! This is another example of Satan destroying the testimony of Jesus, and in so doing has caused most of the church to be unprepared for the tribulation. This is exactly what Satan wants! False teachers repeatedly promise: “If you’re on earth and see the Antichrist, then you’ve missed the rapture!” which is a diabolical lie. Those false teachers and the church will see Antichrist, albeit largely unprepared, and will likely suffer great offense and hatred just as Jesus taught at Matt. 24:10.
Turning now to current events, unbelief of the biblical truths that we are now in the end-times, amid globalist elite’s COVID-19 vaccine agenda will in time create great sorrow. Evil men and women in their lust for power, control and their utopian New World Order have created a means by which to subject humanity to their desires. They’ve created COVID fear which now rules the day, and with fear at the helm globalists keep people under their control to achieve their evil end. For those who think COVID-19 occurred naturally and was not planned, please note, the World Bank “announced the creation of the PEF in May 2016” and launched its “First-Ever Pandemic Bonds to Support $500 Million Pandemic Emergency Financing Facility”…on June 28, 2017! So, why create a “Pandemic Emergency Financing Facility”…unless one knows a pandemic is en route! And exactly 18 months before COVID-19 hit China! As for one of the six pandemics covered, is “Coronaviridae (SARS, MERS)”! Read this scientifically informative article about COVID-19 vaccines and make every effort to protect yourself because globalists will not.
I do not trust the New World Order, the WHO, the UN, the World Bank, China, Dr. Fauci, Bill Gates, nor any other globalists. COVID-19 vaccine warnings continue. Some doctors will not allow vaccinated people into their offices. Listen to Dr, Carrie Madej on “COVID SHOTS, DNA & TRANSHUMANISM”. Hear this nurse from Halifax, Nova Scotia then scroll down and listen to the 55-second clip of Dr. Hahn, for the FDA and its 17,000 employees. If you got COVID-19 vaccinated, according to this, you now “shed infectious particles” to others and make them sick.
“Seek the LORD while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the LORD, and He will have mercy on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. ‘For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,’ says the LORD. ‘For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it’” (Isa. 55:6–11).
Jesus Christ said “For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice” (John 18:37). [My emphasis] Do you hear His voice? In this context, Jesus said “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6). But many Christians have been taught by false teachers to shut out the Words of Jesus, exchanging them for the ear-tickling promises of church traditions. Is Jesus your preeminent source of truth? If not, you’re in trouble. Do you teach Jesus’ Words, or do you help destroy the testimony of Jesus in these end-times?
