The last days of the world will be stark–Those who follow Christ will be noticeably different than those who do not. The world will demand and force a choice. If you want to fit in you will need to disregard God and all manners of selflessness. You will have to resemble the world and its behavior. If you do not, you will be separated, persecuted and ultimately treated as the martyrs of the past. The question is when will that occur.
Well, if you live in Sudan, Iraq, China or a host of other countries in our world–its happening now. In the West, we see anti proselytizing laws appearing in France, UK and even in the good ole USA. It is subtle, but, unless we as a people humble ourselves, and pray and seek his face–God will allow the last days to begin. We cannot stand by any longer, we as a church must repent and take our stand to bring Christ to the World. The enemy certainly continues to work overtime, we must do the same.
God Bless You
Dear children, the last hour is here. You have heard that the Antichrist is coming, and already many such antichrists have appeared. From this we know that the last hour has come. 19 These people left our churches, but they never really belonged with us; they would have stayed with us. When they left, it proved that they did not belong with us.
20 But you are not like that, for the Holy One has given you his Spirit,[e] and all of you know the truth. 21 So I am writing to you not because you don’t know the truth but because you know the difference between truth and lies. 22 And who is a liar? Anyone who says that Jesus is not the Christ.[f] Anyone who denies the Father and the Son is an antichrist.[g] 23 Anyone who denies the Son doesn’t have the Father, either. But anyone who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
24 So you must remain faithful to what you have been taught from the beginning. If you do, you will remain in fellowship with the Son and with the Father. 25 And in this fellowship we enjoy the eternal life he promised us.
