The world has gone mad. It seems as if every headline highlights the onslaught of demonic activity in our nation and the world (Russia is our latest example). Hordes of demons are attempting to kill everything that moves and breathes and has their being in Christ.

Don’t fool yourself, this is the spirit of antichrist that has multiplied its efforts exponentially in just the last few years. This may be the final battle of the ages. A principality and power sits in the White House, in the UN, in the middle east region, in Russia, and throughout the nations of the world wicked governments rule under these powers and principalities.

It is really a time to humble ourselves and turn from our wicked ways, and pray and seek God. It is also a time for a thorough evaluation and examination of our hearts and for the Church to judge herself. If things are not right in the Church she will judged, so let us judge ourselves so we won’t be judged (1 Cor. 11:31) (1 Pt. 4:17).

It is a time to fear the Lord and stand by what He says in His Word and refuse to compromise, and stand and speak the words of this new life (Acts 5:20; 4:20) to the generations and those who oppose Christ, for it is better to obey God than man (Acts 5:29).

Recognize also the spirit of offense in the world and in the Church. The political correctness is off the charts. Just a few days ago I was lambasted by professing Christians for calling the liberal agenda demonic. It is time to speak plainly calling evil by its name. It is time to tell Christians plainly how their lives are wrong (2 Tim. 4:1-5) and to do the work of an evangelist.

Speak the truth always in love, and be wise as serpents and harmless as doves in the spirit of our Lord and Master – meek as a lamb but bold as a lion. Pick your battles wisely and be aware of the pigs and dogs who are not worthy of pearls and that which is holy. Anyone who defends the evils of this president and administration are in that number. Watch and pray always.

Stand strong, my brothers and sisters in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Learn to endure hardness because it is increasing in the earth. Remember that our kingdom is an everlasting kingdom that has no end. We win!

I have a deep love and appreciation for all who love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity and who are clearly and unashamedly standing for righteousness in this hour. You are worthy of double honor if you preach the Word this way.

Much grace and peace to you all who love and labor for the crown of life and glory promised us. And you dear ones, who are serving in persecuted lands, and who at this time are in prison and chains, you are not forgotten. We stand with you and remember you in our prayers (Heb. 13:3). We are one in the Lord.

Let us move forward in the strength and courage of the Lord as if going out to meet Him. Lift up your eyes; He is coming. Soon we’ll all be home, and we can leave this garbage can behind that fallen man has made of this world. Until we depart, let us keep looking into Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith.


Your brother and end time fellow laborer and soldier in the battle of the ages,
Bert Farias



  1. Dear Brother Bert,
    I, too, have seen the chasm among believers in these critical end-times and that disparity of thinking is expected with the world view, but most disturbing when you see it among the brethren.
    A stunning example is what I saw just last night after the Rep Convention ended. I purposely listened to a liberal news station to hear the following-up commentary. It was so negative and the commentators are mostly Christians! We will always have differing opinions about this and that–debate is healthy and we are not robots, BUT how two believers can listen to the same thing and have such diverse and contradictory reactions made me realize even more how much we need to pray the Ephesians prayers for the Body of Christ in this hour ( Ephesians 1:17-18 “. . . the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, 18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened. . .” NKJV). “Open the eyes of our understanding” ” Be enlightened” from the darkness because there is a veil of deception that has caused the Church to be lulled into denial about the times we live in and believers are aligning with the world view. What a recipe for the prophesied great end-time apostasy! If you have ever wondered, as I have, how that could possibly happen, I believe this is how. Pray my friends, pray for a Great Awakening in our nation (hopefully, before the election). God’s will be done and God bless the United States of America!

    • Exactly my sentiments! The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and therein lies the reason so many have little to no discernment. I appreciate your observations. So telling. Thanks for your meaningful comments, Barbara!

  2. Thank God for our “blessed hope” Jesus Christ! Although things are spinning out of control we have God and each other and “we win” in the end if we don’t faint and give up. Will He find faith when He comes back? Yes, Lord! We believe!
