Since the 1960’s never before has the moral rebellion been so great. It appeared that great demonic forces were unleashed over the human race. It is getting to the point now that sin is becoming a legalised lifestyle that must be respected and where those who speak out are punished by a society so blinded by respectability.
That is in itself a sign of Jesus’ coming. We can compare society today with Sodom and Gomorrah. Not that we compare the lewd acts but rather what led up to their destruction.
We do not have to only read Genesis to find out why. We surprisingly need to go to Ezekiel 16.
Ezekiel 16:49 NIRV
“Here is the sin your sister Sodom committed. She and her daughters were proud. They ate too much. They were not concerned about others. They did not help those who were poor and in need.
Ezekiel 16:50 NIRV
They were very proud. They did many things that were evil in my sight. I hated those things. So I got rid of Sodom and her daughters, just as you have seen.
It is revealing. But when you look at verse 49 in the King James you get a different picture.
Ezekiel 16:49, 52 KJV
Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. Thou also, which hast judged thy sisters, bear thine own shame for thy sins that thou hast committed more abominable than they: they are more righteous than thou: yea, be thou confounded also, and bear thy shame, in that thou hast justified thy sisters.
Look at the sins:
And if we look at society today we see the same characteristics today. These are seeds of a greater evil.
When you consider many march with pride banners you can see the same root causes that bring about the perversions today.
There is a difference between resting in God and laziness
There is a difference being free from sin and freedom to sin
There is a difference from sinning and lifestyle
There is a difference between life in Christ where we know our need of Him, and comparing ourselves with others by our apparent self righteousness.
The sign of His Coming is that mankind with live for his senses and his feelings and never for living in the Spirit and the fruit of that same Spirit.
When you consider that more and more the Church will be legally pressured to conform to world thinking opens the door for persecution within the same Church of those who wish to wash their garments in Christ’s blood. I see wholesale betrayal afoot. I see wholesale selling out to the way the world thinks so that one preserves their life rather than be counted for martyrdom. And it is coming.
Could it be that the atrocities committed by Isis is a foretaste of the type of persecution coming?
The reason why persecution will come is because sin will and is becoming a respectable lifestyle. Marriage will become corrupt and parenthood abusive. All the devil wants to do is destroy every structure God instituted so that he can take with him into the darkness millions of souls. We need to know that although the price will be high the Bride of Christ shall come out of it pure without fault.
This is a sign of His Coming.
