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,
