While signs that this generation is at the end of the Church Age rage, the devil’s thinking becomes ever louder through voices infected with the fallen one’s hatred. A Democrat candidate for president in 2020 provided the echo chamber for making audible Satan’s intentions.
CNN TV host Don Lemon, Thursday night October 10, provided the question on the CNN town hall. He asked Beto O’Rourke whether he thought all churches or other organizations that held views against those of the LGBTQ community should have their tax-exempt status taken away.
The candidate said “Yes.” He added: “There can be no reward, no benefit, no tax break for anyone or any institution – any organization in America that denies the full human rights and the full civil rights of every single one of us.” Vowing to make this a priority of his administration, O’Rourke said further, “We are going to stop those who are infringing upon the human rights of our fellow Americans.”
A few other of the 20 something Democrat candidates in the 2020 presidential race backed away from O’Rourke’s blunt declaration. But throughout weeks and months of rantings and ravings the collective mindset of the radical left –and that is almost everyone running on the Democrat side— has made it clear. They are a militant mob of LGBT activists who are satanically-driven to shut down all evangelical churches in America and to silence any Christian who dares to stand in the way of their agenda.
Echoes of Lucifer’s seething contempt for all that is holy in this strange time so near to the end of the age can’t be contained. His minions of the human sort are seeing to it that his lies are given voice on a regular basis.
As a matter-of-fact, the main stream news media broadcasts on an hourly basis the cavernous reverberations of the devil’s lies. Thus, while refusing most counter thought to be aired on their various venues. –Venues that, like the political, ideological and theological left, are of one mind. It is the mind of the father of lies.
We can get a perspective on just how rapidly things have been moved toward the abyss Satan has planned for this nation and the world through this news excerpt.
“The American pastor whose two-year imprisonment plunged Turkey into a diplomatic feud with the United States urged young Christians in his home country to prepare for the persecution he sees gathering for them on the horizon.
“Pastor Andrew Brunson, 51, told the Washington Examiner how troubled he has been by the ominous trends he has observed in American culture during the year since his dramatic, high-stakes release from a Turkish prison.
“Brunson elsewhere said he has been “astounded at the speed with which the U.S. is imploding” and how anti-Christian sentiment has surged during just the few years he was isolated. “The whole Trump election and everything that happened afterward, I knew very little about it. So, when I came back to the states and just started reading and following news, it was just such a contrast to the environment that we had been in even four to six years ago.”
“It seems that the culture has become more overtly hostile,” he said, pinpointing how large corporations are now joining the media and political classes to push positions that often oppose biblical teaching. A segment of elite society has long regarded Christians sneeringly, he said, but opposition is now bubbling up everywhere and “is now spread to where it’s more of a grassroots thing that is growing.” [Source: http://freerepublic.com/focus/f-ews/3786234/posts]
As we are assaulted by the echoing, cacophonous ravings of the godless, reprobate minions, let’s comfort ourselves with Scripture such as that of Titus 2: 13.
Amazing to hear Pastor Brunson saying those things especially after hearing the prayer he prayed over the President during the Faith meeting held just a week or so ago. It is almost frightening with the speed that things are ramping up. You also must take into account the situation in Syria, now Putin and Erdogan have had a 6 hour meeting and have both come up for air looking like they ate the proverbial “bird”! We know the alliance is forming right before our eyes. I said that exact thing to the Lord in prayer this morning, that these things are taking place right before our very eyes and oh, what a time to be alive, brothers and sisters!! May Jesus be glorified and may He call that beautiful call that we are all waiting for…”come up here!!” Amen, hallelujah, and maranatha!!
Hallelujah Sister in Christ……He’s at the door!…..Praise the Lord!
See you in the air….Maranatha!
Such remarks will, I’m afraid, become more commonplace unless we get better at Apologetics. My website suggestion email to Todd on 23rd September was sent with that in mind.
Don Lemon, made the very suggestion and he is as repulsive as Beto, it is an agenda. It also makes the media look less guilty. Beware of the scribes(media) and the pharisees Jesus told them when they asked for a sign of HIS return.
With these things happening so quickly as someone responded, “right before our eyes”, we must pray for one another that our faith will not shrink! “Those who would live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.” II Timothy 3:12 Are we preparing to suffer for the cause of Christ?
That’s right. We see things happening so fast. The birth pains have started and will only get worse. Yes, we must pray for each other, fervently.
Like Terry, I believe that God caused Donald Trump to be elected President, even though Mr. Trump certainly has his faults – just like all of us. That being said, i also believe he’ll continue in that office to fulfill whatever purpose God has in mind for him no matter what his enemies try to do to remove him from office.
At this point, we should remember that even if the House decides to initiate impeachment proceedings, it would require him being convicted by of “high crimes or misdemeanors” by trial in the Senate presided over by Chief Justice Roberts to remove Mr. Trump from office. Right now, that is unlikely as long as the Republicans control it, but after the 2020 election, what happens there is anyone’s guess.
What we can expect is that the present government paralysis will only get worse – and we can believe that our enemies across the world will take full advantage of it.
Perilous times indeed!
