There is no single group that can take credit for what is happening. There are many groups with many names but they all unwittingly follow the philosophies of their father, Lucifer!
Introduction to Chapter 22:
IF WE ARE TO TAKE THE WORD OF GOD LITERALLY (AND WE SHOULD) ALL OF HISTORY HAS MOVED US TO TWO WORLD-ALTERING EVENTS. First, a man the Bible calls the “antichrist” will arise during a time of great upheaval and war. He will claim to be the Messiah, but he is, in fact, a pawn of the devil seeking to annihilate all knowledge of God from the earth by killing all Jews and Christians. This man of iniquity, as the Bible calls him, is Satan’s final tool to accomplish the evil that was born in his heart when he attempted to overthrow God.
(The Spiritual Guide section of each chapter should be reviewed after reading the corresponding chapter.)
If this is true, what can we do? God warns us of all these things so we can prepare. Prepare what? Prepare our hearts. Prepare our families. If the antichrist rises to power tomorrow would you, your spouse, your children and grandchildren have a strong enough relationship with God to overcome? Do they know enough biblical truth to resist false history and science? Will they resist false religion when there are deceptive miracles and lying signs and wonders?
This is not a defeatist attitude but the true Church, those who are called and are following the Lord Jesus. It does not have and has never wanted world domination; it wants people to be made whole, to be prepared for eternity, and to live in peace and love. We cannot establish the Kingdom of God on earth. This humanistic concept of the Kingdom of God on earth is exactly what every other power-hungry, religious tyrant has sought to do. There will be only one righteous, religious-political world leader: Jesus!
There was a time when voting wisely would have made a difference, but that time may be gone. The two major political parties are financed by many of the same people, have been educated in the same schools, and many are members of the antichrist secret organizations that began to flourish in the 20th century. Maybe we need to consider what Stalin said, “The people who cast the votes don’t decide an election, the people who count them do.”
There have been preachers with the Kingdom Now theology claiming the Church will take over the world and get it ready for Jesus to return. If that were possible Jesus would have done it Himself. So if the Church takes over the world, what would keep us honest? Who would decide the leaders? What would we do if we disagree? What would happen if we had a corrupt leader? People who embrace such philosophies are the useful idiots of idealistic or power-hungry clergy. Every doctrine or philosophy that thinks that is God’s plan takes on the elitist-enlightened mentality and will destroy in the name of the good they want to accomplish.
Walk in love, pray with your children, and follow God in your heart. Value what God values and turn your heart away from what the world values. If you do not choose to own some part of the world it can never own you. Keep yourself free from the love of “things.” Enjoy them and use them but do not become engrossed by them. Determine your identity based on who you are in Jesus, not what you possess. Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world — the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life — is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever (1 John 2:15-17).
I recommend you go through every chapter of this book with your children and grandchildren, even if you have to modify it to make it understandable. Protect their hearts from the deceptive flood covering the world. Let them get a biblical understanding of world history instead of propaganda that is vomited on them in public education. If we do not tell them God’s truth they will never understand or endure what lies ahead. But with faith and the Word of God in their heart they can do great exploits. Thy can be mountain movers of the future who take the Gospel of Kingdom to the ends of the earth!
