The Last Days Of The World XVII

 Those who have proven themselves to be no more than ghouls wearing human skin have made it clear that letting a good crisis go to waste is inconceivable. However that crisis comes about, whatever the implications for the average citizen, think tanks get paid millions of dollars to find ways and means to capitalize on it, skirt responsibility, and aggregate and consolidate their power.

The guilt or innocence of the group of individuals they choose to target and blame for what ails society is irrelevant and beside the point. You isolate the aforementioned group and then wage a systematic and well-planned attack against them, insisting that they are the source and genesis of the problem.

The soil has already been tilled, and the seeds have already been planted. We are told repeatedly and earnestly by talking heads who, trying to feign sincerity, look more like they’re suffering from extreme constipation that two-parent Christian families pose a greater danger to the republic than zealots who believe that taking the life of an infidel will ensure eternal frolicking with no less than seventy virgins. It’s that Jesus guy and His followers that are the real problem. They are the danger, the enemy, the virus that must be eradicated.

Standing in the way of the degeneracy being presented as wholesome and virtuous cannot be allowed to stand. The godless have a plan and a vision and they are executing on them whether the average Joe approves of it or not. Granted, most people don’t have time to peel back the layers and see what’s really happening because juggling bills and keeping up with their mortgage payments has become the ever-present albatross around their neck. Each day gets more difficult, so they don’t have the time, energy, or wherewithal to open their eyes and see the narrative being constructed for what it is. It’s not a conspiracy theory; it’s the reality most people are living through, and it is a well-orchestrated distraction so that those in power can attain their goals without untoward opposition from what they deem to be the peanut gallery.

In their troubled minds, not only do they know what’s better for you, but they believe wholeheartedly that they are better than you, and all you need is the right motivation to see it for yourself. Whether the narrative is that it’s for the greater good or your own good, and you’re too obtuse to see it and so must be forced to do as they dictate, the goal is still the same.

Matthew 24:9-10, “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.”

Jesus didn’t say there was a chance you may be hated or even that it was a high likelihood; He said you would be hated for His name’s sake. Jesus wasn’t playing the probabilities game; He declared with absolute certainty that you would be hated for His name’s sake. If the world doesn’t hate you but hates the Jesus you claim to serve, the question must be posed as to whether or not you are serving Jesus. It is incongruent for the world to hate the Master but love the servant.

There are multiple big ideas we have to unpack from these two verses. The first is the word ‘then’. Innocuous, I know, but heavy with implications. When’s then? When will the children of God be delivered up to tribulation, killed, and hated?

The answer is found in the previous two verses. As the world is falling apart, as nations rise against nations, and we begin to see famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places, as the beginning of sorrows stuns the world like a hammer to the skull, then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you for His name’s sake.

Grab your Bible, read the full text, and tell me if there’s another way to interpret this passage.

The next big idea is that Jesus said the hatred, vitriol, and bloodlust would be of global proportions. You will be hated by all nations for His name’s sake. Not just a few, or a handful, or a majority, but all. This circles back to the idea that when these events begin to unfold, there will be no safe haven and nowhere to run to this time, as opposed to the believers who lived during the time of Jerusalem's sacking and the temple's destruction.

The day will come when, if you are a follower of Christ, you will be persona non grata in every nation on the face of the earth. But not America, surely never America! Are you sure about that?

It’s easy to be dismissive regarding the words Jesus spoke if we live cloistered lives, unaware of what’s going on beyond our personal bubble of a handful of like-minded individuals. We read His words with a certain level of skepticism because what He said would be doesn’t match up with the reality we are currently experiencing. Sure, nations afar off with names we can’t quite pronounce might be persecuting Christians, but it could never happen here because we’re a godly nation that trusts God. It even says so on our currency.

While much of the church is at ease in Zion, thinking itself safe and secure from what they deem unthinkable, new laws are being passed and codified whose only purpose and intent is the silencing and subsequent persecution of those who claim faith in Christ. Perhaps they’ll be jolted awake when whispers of outlawing the Bible begin to turn into a chorus, but even then, most of them will take a verse about obeying the laws of the land out of context and get in line to turn in their Bibles in exchange for a coupon for a free McFlurry.

It sounds like you don’t think much of modern-day Christians and the rebranded Christianity, brother. In my defense, I haven’t been given a reason to. The evidence speaks for itself, and the words of Jesus and Paul regarding the love of many growing cold, and the falling away being imminent become more real with each passing day.

With love in Christ,
