Christmas and Advents

Christmas 2018 is upon a world filled with anticipation, expectation, trepidation, and abomination. This year isn’t overly different from any other Christmastime in many ways.

Some anticipate a celebration of the first Advent when the Christ child came amidst tidings of great joy through angelic exultation. Some are filled with expectation that the time of Christmas celebration will bring at least some moments of peace to otherwise tumultuous, daily routines of life.

Annual family get-togethers, church Christmas presentations, and exchanges of gifts still reside at the heart of the Christmas season in America. But, there can be no denying that there is an overt design and dark, visceral movement to change America in ways meant to divide and conquer Christendom. For, if the evil that constitutes the nucleus of this movement has their way, Christ will be forever relegated to non-entity status as the way is prepared for the advent of their own version of Messiah.

Thus, for many believers, where there should be even greater anticipation and expectation of joy at Christmastime, there is increasing trepidation.

We sense that the spirit of abomination is a growing infection, a metastasizing evil intent upon invading and trans-morphing every vestige of cellular, founding principle built into the U.S. Constitution.

Politically, we watch daily the incessant assault on all that is rational. The growing numbers in the U.S. who fall under the spell of the insanity that rules the ideological left is frightening. They cannot see that we are losing the country that has provided the liberties we–and they–enjoy…freedom like no other nation in history has been permitted.

These see the turmoil and chaos in Europe, where the populace has to riot en masse to survive the impossibly heavy taxes their socialist leaders have imposed. Yet they, for some unfathomable reason, desire to embrace that system. The protesters have to die in some cases to make those leftist leaders understand that the people want no part of the climate-change rules, regulations, and taxation the globalists demand. Yet the so called “progressives”–the political left in America–cannot make the connection. The way things are going on in France is exactly the way this nation is headed, if they have their way.

Instead of learning and teaching a different ideology than socialistic insanity, America’s so-called higher education professors continue to preach from their academic pulpits the religion of ecological Mother Earth worship under the socialistic, ideological framework.

Religiously, the world–including much of America’s political establishment–embrace that socialistic, Utopian quest. At the same time they hold Catholic Pope Francis up as the kind of religionist the young should follow, if any religionist at all.

That Pontiff has said that all will eventually go to Heaven, that there is no Hell, and that there are many ways to God, not simply through the ways presented by the Christian faith–the Lord Jesus Christ. In other words, whether wittingly or unwittingly, this pope, the ideological left and the globalist elite all look forward to an advent entirely the opposite of the First Advent, when Christ came to earth to seek and save those who are lost.

These who form the dark movement to bring America into compliance with the new world order, who are determined to destroy America as founded, look for the one God’s Word calls “the abomination that makes desolate” (see Daniel 9). They are looking for the great political leadership that will correct the horrendous mess they, themselves, have made of things. They are looking for the advent of Antichrist.

But, we who name the Name of Christ Jesus can take assurance as we observe Christmas 2018. We look back to that First Advent and that baby in the manger as proof that God the Father is still in complete control. All the evil we see tracking across the geopolitical and religious landscape is right on target to fulfill that great promise that the Second Advent–the Second Coming of Christ–is on the immediate horizon.

The first phase of that Second Advent will be the Rapture of the Church of Jesus Christ. Convergence of events prove beyond any doubt to the discerning believer that great event is about to happen.

“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh” (Luke 21:28).

Now that promise straight from the heart of God is certainly reason to have a very Merry Christmas!

    Merry First Birth of Our Christ and a Joyous return of Our Christ in the clouds for our second birth In Him. :))

    Loved your post Terry, it reveals the ever increasing divide between true faith in Christ, and a world hell bent on a different savior, one that will not fulfill their fancies. Christ is our true hope, hallelujah to the Lamb who gave Himself up for us sinners!
