In case you missed the rapture, the rapture being the time when Jesus removed His bride (the church) from the earth before the Great Tribulation, there are things you may want cleared up in reference to the world before the rapture happened. I’ve written this because scripture says that in the time that your currently in there will be strong delusion that will not allow many of you to receive the truth (2 Thessalonians 2:11). This is my attempt to provide some assistance in accessing the truth and breaking that strong delusion.
In specific reference to our society that was in growing rebellion against God before the rapture, it may be clear that society was and still is against Jesus and the God of the Jews. If you read 2 Timothy 3 it describes specifically what the people in this world were like.
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
(2 Timothy 3:1-8)
It was very difficult discussing the Lord with most of them. They all felt they understood the Lord. Many have been to church before or heard the stories of Jesus, and viewed them as just that…stories. They felt they had a good understanding of what Jesus was about. So they mixed him with their secular goals of obtaining wealth, power, and the American dream of making it big and living like the upper class does.
Those times were very difficult to communicate with many. The reason was because though it was agreed that people believed in Jesus and the Bible as the Word of God, most never read it. The worst part is that if you brought scripture to their attention they’d rebuke you and ignore the scriptures. Even though they said they believed in God and the Bible as His Word’s. The Bible no longer had the last word.
The main theme of the times was positivity. Of course this all being part of New Age teaching, but no one understood that. Everyone believed in the power of their mind and thinking. They believed that this was what God was telling us to do. Be positive and everything will be ok. This idea actually being part of the main problem that faced the world. The world was changing in the most negative way, there was nothing good about the direction the world was heading, but this being positive message crippled society in actually understanding what was happening.
In every way society was attacking God and His Word. They were attacking everything that He commanded of us. The worst part is they’d use His Word against Him and claim that people using the Bible as their standard of convictions was actually “hate speech”. It’s probably worst in your time I’m sure. But all standards of the Lord were attacked like the purpose of woman for man, sex before marriage, lie, cheat, steal for success. Society embraced satanic culture. It chastised those that spoke out against it.
Our entertainment was all about satanism. It took satanic values and wrapped it up in pop culture and over time won over generations. People were flashing satanic symbolism through hand gestures, on clothing, in movies & television, and through logos & corporate branding. Satanism was in the abundance, but not many acknowledged it as such. The satanic temple was putting up Satanic statues all around the United States. They were making satanic coloring books and passing it out to children in schools. But no one paid it any attention.
The point I’m getting at is that society was and is against God. They spoke about a New World Order often, and that was actually the goal of it. To remove God out of society and replace satan as god. This is the world you live in now. It was all being set up in front of you for decades. The world you live in now has completed rejected God. This is why He has removed the church. Everyone on the earth is being tested and you must make the right decision.
Even though society has moved away from the Lord, that does not mean that you should. You must go back to basics. Go back to the standards set by the Lord. You will only understand this by living through His Word, and rejecting the world. You will be different from everyone. You will not agree with anyone that does not share your belief in the Word of God. They all will be in alliance with satan whether they understand this to be true or not. You must be strong in these times and be prepared to battle amongst them, but with the power of the Lord, not your own.
Most importantly please get a Bible and read it for yourself. This site was made to give you the truth about subjects that most people did not touch during our time so please use it as a reference point, but back everything up according to the Word. Read the Bible for yourself and ask the Lord to guide you through it. The New Testament is the most important part in the beginning because it provides you understanding on the importance of Jesus and the Lord’s gift of Grace. After having a good grasp on Him, go back to the Old Testament to understand the history of man, Israel, and their interactions with the One True God. It’s a history book with Word’s of prophecy from God in reference to the future. Many have now happened, some are yet to come. Revelations is specifically about the end. You will read this book a lot. If you have not done so, please read the repentance prayer. Pray it and mean it. Unfortunately you may be persecuted and you certainly face trials ahead, but the good news is you have this last chance to get it right. Many were not afforded that luxury. Accept Jesus Christ as your messiah and redemption of your sins! Walk in the power of the Lord. I look forward in meeting you soon. Amen! God Bless!
If this is before the rapture, please read the Bible for yourself. Rebuke the religious practices that have been passed down over time and reject the world and the things of it. Do not be conformed by the principles and traditions of this world, but be renewed by the Word of God. Repent daily and break away from all bondage and unclean spirit, demon, and/or principality.
