KNOWING WHEN TO DRAW THE LINE

“Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.” (Mathew 10: 32-33)

It is not my intention to offend anyone with this article or cause you to be upset. I do not want to be known as being negative or bringing discouragement to our already difficult struggle to exist in this world. However, I also do not believe in sugar-coating everything just so that we can live in a fantasy because many times these dreams are not true reality. I am convinced that a crucial part of being a good soldier for Christ is being filled with HIS knowledge and wisdom so that we can be AWARE and informed not only about what God wants us to do but also the strategies of our enemy. I realize there have been and presently are many good Christian people and not everything is gloom and doom and I am sure that throughout our history there have been select individuals that loved and served God sincerely. Nonetheless, we must admit that Satan has been given the authority to be the prince of the power of the air in this realm under the jurisdiction of The Almighty God and has carefully built his “system of the beast” through influencing the minds of those who do not know God. We are the true pilgrims of this world but are not trying to establish a “land” of freedom – we are servants of Christ with a mission to speak God’s Word to the lost so that souls can be rescued from an eternal life of darkness and suffering. Our “Beulah land” or Promised Land is not this earth but will be with God in heaven someday, so it is time to recognize and acknowledge the way things really are. It is difficult to accept that many events have not been what we thought they were but the beauty of being filled with the Holy Spirit is understanding God’s view – and not placing our faith in man.

It is very clear that we live in a world that is rapidly changing. It is no secret – things are not the way they used to be. There was a time (even 50 years ago) that Jesus Christ (the God of the Bible) was accepted by most people in this country as the one true God. Today, our government now proudly proclaims that we are NOT a Christian Nation but rather a diverse hodge-podge of religious ideas and convictions that are “equally” true and respected. Instead of weeping in shame for how the world has betrayed the one “TRUE” God and fallen into gross darkness, this declaration of false unity and religious tolerance has become admired as the new “constitution” of the New World Order. This persuasion or indoctrination has now taken a firm control by establishing the correct way to think and what is socially acceptable. So, who came up with all of these corrupted philosophies and ideologies? Well, as Christians, it is basic knowledge to understand there is a spiritual enemy that opposes God and everything His Kingdom stands for. Satan is the ruler of this dark force that spends every minute trying to influence the thoughts of mankind. In this light, we can know that man did not create humanism but rather the “system” created him, as his rebellion came naturally from his fallen nature and caused him to become an easy prey to the dark side. Satan should be very proud of himself, (he always is) that he has tempted Adam and Eve to sin and lose their standing with God in the beginning, and has now finally convinced most of the world to turn against God. Since all humans are born with a fallen nature it has become easier to deceive them. Why? Because the gospel is the only power that can “wake up” those who are dead and the Christians have the responsibility to proclaim it! As more and more Christians have abandoned their mission to be ON FIRE evangelist and become mesmerized with their own pleasures – the world has grown much darker and aggressively evil.

Years ago when we as Christians began to take a closer look at the way the world was changing, we were shocked to discover that maybe we were not really as strong of a Christ-led people as we thought we were. We took for granted that this country was “one nation under God” and that all who govern and represent this land would fight for Biblical principles. However, when we research history and are willing to look “under the surface” there is overwhelming evidence (even in the very beginning) of strange doctrines and the heresy of Biblical error. For example, the idea to build the statue of liberty was not really to invite people from around the world to live here so they could be saved through the gospel of JESUS CHRIST. Actually there were several reasons but for the most part it was an invitation for anyone who desired to live in freedom to come and enjoy a new way of living. Many Christians have thought this statue was a Godly symbol of truth and justice but who in their right mind can connect a “goddess” called “MOTHER of exiles” with the Lord Jesus? Many now believe this iconic symbol is just another example of American Babylonianism and represents the great whore that rides the beast and that New York is the city of Babylon that is mentioned in Revelation chapters 17 and 18 that will be destroyed. I encourage you to do a personal research of the history of this event and a Biblical study of these chapters.

It is believed that Frederic Auguste Bartholdi the sculptor, (also a freemason) had been working on some creative ideas of pagan idols and selected for the Statue of Liberty a goddess called “Libertas” which was a Roman personification of personal freedom. Interestingly, another name for the statue of Liberty is, “Liberty enlightening the world” BUT it is not referring to the holy liberty FROM sin – but rather a liberty TO sin without anyone restricting you. This evil deity promoted “personal” liberty to do anything that felt good – which is exactly the message of the devil to the human race! She was also called the “matron goddess of prostitution” because she endorsed sexual freedom, (imagine that). The ancient writings of Cicero describe the Libertas cult worship and refer to her as the “mother of harlots.” (Where have we heard that?) Thus, we can now clearly see that the outward representation of a demonic spirit was placed at the entrance of this nation and boldly opened the floodgates of perversion and darkness. Once again, the message of Satan and his beast system was given the “liberty” to poison this country because the Christians were too blind to recognize his angel costume!

Let us also take a quick glance at the inscription on the base of the statue that was written by a woman named Emma Lazarus. It is called “The NEW Colossus” and refers (you guessed it) to an ancient statue called Colossus of Rhodes, the Greek titan-god of the sun Helios and one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. He is often depicted as wearing a crown that looks like sun-beams.

“Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame, with conquering limbs astride from land to land; here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand. A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame is the imprisoned lightning, and her name Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command the air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame. “Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she with silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, the tempest tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door.” Many are convinced this message was declaring that the United States embraces all religions and respects all worldviews and this land will be a safe haven for all people. So what could possibly be wrong with this? It seems very innocent and sincere to want to protect all people no matter what god they worship because we are about letting “freedom ring.” Well, there are TWO WAYS of seeing this intention. The first, are those who do NOT have the Holy Spirit flooding their soul with God’s way of thinking and consequently are always seeing things in a completely different (or wrong) interpretation. The old carnal nature tries to use human logic to justify and compromise what they think is the best way and are not controlled by the conviction and fear of GODS will. We see in the attempt to build the tower of Babel that man was trying to lead himself with his own intelligence. Let us agree that without allowing God to lead – all of us are vulnerable to believing a lie! Selah. If this statue does not represent Jesus Christ (and it does not) then exactly who is speaking this message? Maybe some thought they could protect the innocent by bringing them into this country of purity and God’s Word but the devil was acting the part of the witch in seducing Hansel and Gretel by luring his victims into his house so that he could eat them! Instead of being “ONE NATION UNDER GOD” we have become saturated with blasphemy and infected the whole world with filthiness! This is why devastating judgment is on the horizon and is recognized by those who fear Him as the “Day of the Lord.”

The second way of thinking comes from a remnant of believers in Christ that are praying for a renewed mind which uses spiritual discernment instead of leaning on their own understanding. They do not follow a man and do not worship any nation, political view or organization. This small group of disciples will never agree with the masses just because they want to fit in. They realize that the American dream is not God’s idea and that if we had been a Christian nation we would have built a huge cross that had God’s Word engraved on it instead of a pagan goddess! Amen! Through the years many took for granted this was a Christian nation and that all political leaders were God fearing people and that we could convert all the people that come through our borders and live in a promised land of milk and honey. Allow me to say that we are a little ahead of schedule and this HOLY, monarchy government will not occur until the one thousand year millennial reign of Christ. Nevertheless, the “old school” thinkers thought that they could control the way everyone looked, the language, morality, public education, politics, the legal system and of course the churches doctrines. However, when humanism gave birth to tolerance and the gates of false unity and no absolutes were opened, there was no way that Christianity could be first and foremost in our society and culture. In fact, respect for Christianity has gone from sitting on the front row of the bus to the back row and now is having a difficult time even staying on the bus at all. The New World Order has been given time to rise and gain power (while the church has been napping) and is now aggressively saying, we will put an end to this madness of Jesus being the only true God, and His Word as true – and they have! Our mission today is not to turn the entire world around – but to live the Christian life in front of everyone so the lost can SEE God’s character and love. Selah.

The “system of the beast” has become a world-wide standard of thinking that is produced by the devil but transported and facilitated through the vehicle of the carnal mind. The blind cannot see and fools cannot comprehend wisdom, thus we have the masses that are ruled by their flesh and easily persuaded by Satan. These “zombies” are the messengers that carry out the devils agenda and have now established what is socially acceptable and politically correct! Those who are the remnant saints will NOT follow the system of the beast and will NOT play the game or bow their knee to any lying demon or false idol. It does not matter if it is the greatest speech ever given and is wrapped up in red, white and blue – as they are led by their Great Shepard, they will know when it is time to draw the line.

The darkness is all around us and I am sure you have noticed that the system is trying to listen and watch everything you do. What does this have to do with “a possible you?”? Everything – if your intentions are to devote your entire heart to Christ in these last hours! The future the true disciple of Christ will not be able to minister the gospel without being seen or heard. There will be situations where God will perform miracles for His glory and protect His people in certain circumstances but overall the destiny of being persecuted will become a reality to those who are completely sold-out to their Lord. As the conscience of the world becomes seared, the blindness and hatred will grow stronger against those who stand for and speak the piercing truth. This “allegiance” to the system of the beast has now taken a firm control concerning the correct way to think and act and the remnant (you and I) will be required to STAND against it! “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” (Romans 1:16)
