Christ Is Our Only Hope

Friday, May 17, 2024

The whole world will soon be in the deadly jaws of the UN’s New World Order under direction of its one world ruler, Antichrist, with his one world religion. And all the injustices of the recent decade as the world preps under the direction of the elite will pale in comparison to the rage and hatred to be exacted against God’s true people, true Christians called true Jews of Rom. 2:28–29. And like I said last week, “the answer to this surging end-time crisis is not any one man, nor any one president of this nation”. Our only hope is true faith in Christ that endures to the very end. In this regard every professing Christian must be clothed in the full armor of God because we’ll see and experience things that will defy logic and reason, just as it was in the days of Noah and Lot.

Now, in the face of these biblically prophetic coming disasters and destruction, to clarify what it means to have an enduring faith in Christ, we must love Jesus Christ more than our own family because Jesus said, “He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me” (Matt. 10:37–38). When Lot fled the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah with his wife and daughters he demonstrated love for God more than his wife, who, when she turned and looked back contrary to the command of God and perished, Lot, obeying God’s command did not follow his wife’s disobedience and was kept through that time of destruction. Likewise, in these end-times God knows how to keep His own through disasters.

Gather your family and speak often of our salvation faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His love, mercy and grace. Not only will you strengthen your own faith and faith of your loved ones, but a record of that conversation is written in heaven. “Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD listened and heard them; so a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the LORD and who meditate on His name. ‘They shall be Mine,’ says the LORD of hosts, ‘On the day that I make them My jewels. And I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him.’ Then you shall again discern between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him” (Mal. 3:16–18).

It’s imperative in these perilous end-times that as true believers we “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the LORD and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, and strength to your bones” (Prov. 3:5–8). And as we put on the full armor of God, we should remember that, “If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things of the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God” (Col. 3:1–3).

That’s vital because there are even right now many distractions with many more to come that will desire to draw our attention away from our ambassadorship of Christ toward earthly things, to get caught up in the cesspools of politics, governments, wars, rumors of wars, false religions, artificial intelligence, biometric chip implants, robotics, spirit portals, cashless society, CBDCs, diversity, equity and inclusion, critical race theory, open boarders, crime, illegal immigrants and drugs, pestilences, bird flu, Disease X, vaccines, loss of freedoms, lockdowns, financial collapse, joblessness, homelessness, famines, transhumanism, LGBTQ+ agendas, silencing of free speech, protections for criminals but prosecution of their victims, right is wrong, secret societies, return of the ancient gods, the corruption of the CIA, the FBI, the DOJ, the EPA, the FDA, the IRS, the DHS, FEMA, the United Nations, the World Health Organization, the World Economic Forum, the International Monetary Fund, the International Court of Justice, and much more. And in the course of all these end-time events, unprecedented deceptions will reign and only those of true faith in Christ will be wise in His testimony and equipped to discern between truth and deceits.

And when we pray, desiring to receive from the LORD, that’s a very conditional matter which requires of us to “Delight yourself also in the LORD, and He shall give you the desires of your heart” (Psa. 37:4). Note the condition to attaining “the desires of your heart” is to first “Delight yourself also in the LORD”. That precedent is tantamount to the life of the true believer seeking to receive from God. Thus, we demonstrate to God that He is our first love and that He has our full allegiance above anything of this corrupt and dying world. It means we make it our priority to always praise the goodness of our God who redeemed us through Christ that we passed from death unto life, and for that we show our eternal gratitude, love and worship. One way for us to delight ourselves in the Lord is as the Spirit said, “by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God” (Rom. 12:1–2).

Equally tantamount to enduring the coming days of Antichrist’s wrath is knowing God’s word; knowing it in context, never out of context. This is why God said “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” (Hos. 4:6). And “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Rom. 10:17). Knowing the word of God with contextual discernment is absolutely crucial. Here’s why: in the first sermon of the New Testament, the Holy Spirit brought forward the word spoken by Moses saying, “For Moses truly said to the fathers, ‘The LORD your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your brethren. Him you shall hear in all things, whatever He says to you. And it shall be that every soul who will not hear that Prophet shall be utterly destroyed from among the people (Acts 3:22–23). That referenced “Prophet” was none other than Christ Jesus Himself! And we live in a perilous time when many tepid pastors and ministers having a greater fear of man than God, sugar-coat the gospel with ear-tickling teachings that are sure to garner the praise of man. They dismiss out of hand Christ’s end-time teachings. They ignore warnings of the seven-year tribulation, and thus many believers wander blindly in ignorance.

But let’s not be found wandering in ignorance, but recognize thatEvery word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. Do not add to His words, Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar” (Prov. 30:5–6). In that regard we must allow the testimony of Christ to compel us to prepare to endure to the end of the age and find no comfort in the false hope of a pre-trib rapture, because as Christ taught, He gathers His elect (and we true believers are His elect) “Immediately after the tribulation” (Matt. 24:29–31). Let’s prepare in Jesus’ words who said, “But he who endures to the end shall be saved” (Matt. 10:22; Matt. 24:13; Mark 13:13).   

My new book “ON EAGLES’ WINGS” with the subtitle “God’s Call, Your Response, Your Life Journey, Through The Tribulation, Until The Rapture” reveals many spiritual and end-time truths that invite you to believe God’s word and to cast off the fruitless traditions of men of Mark 7:13.
