Today, the Bible and Christians are completely disrespected. I can hardly get the name of Jesus Christ off my tongue before I’m treated like an enemy of humanity. Those who live by the teachings of the Gospel are exposed to hurtful words and spiteful actions. When the Day of the Lord comes, there will be eternal punishment for the persecutors of God’s people, and there will be eternal Salvation for those who live for Jesus Christ.
- Gospel of Christ Brought to Disrespect.
- Followers of Christ Tormented by unGodly Words and Actions.
- Followers of the Mark of the Beast Chief Among Those Punished.
Gospel of Christ Brought to Disrespect.
There is no question that the Bible, Christians, and the name of Jesus Christ are held in very low esteem by the public. On a national level, the United States has discarded its Godly foundations a long time ago. There are aggressive protests and violence against the “right wing” and now the term “right wing extremist” is being used to categorize those who rally against “progressives” or the “left wing.” The population is overwhelmingly in favor of the thing that has power over physiology and is able to form emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. They are living by the mark of the beast, which seeks to destroy the name of Jesus Christ, trample on the Holy Spirit, and to set itself up as God.
The churches have become nothing more than centers of community activity with no interest in promoting the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Instead, they are coaching their congregation to live by the inner prodding within thoughts and feelings. The churches are exploiting people with their insincere words. “Many will follow their depraved conduct and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. In their covetousness these teachers will exploit you with insincere words.” They are coaching others to live by the mark of the beast. Their condemnation and destruction are hanging over them.
“But there were also false prophets among the people,
just as there will be false teachers among you.
They will secretly introduce destructive heresies,
even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them—
bringing swift destruction on themselves.
Many will follow their depraved conduct and will bring the way of truth into disrepute.
In their covetousness these teachers will exploit you with insincere words.
Their condemnation has long been hanging over them,
and their destruction does not sleep.”
2 Peter 2:1-3
Followers of Christ Tormented by unGodly Words and Actions.
Today are those days when the followers of Jesus Christ are filled with concern for the direction that this world is taking. Christians are living among the masses of people that protest and demand to have their unGodly rights. It is painful to see the Bible trashed and Christians treated like enemies of humanity. A fire has been kindled against those who live for the testimony of Jesus Christ. The world has literally become like the days of Noah and like Sodom and Gomorra.
In Genesis 6 it is written about the superhuman Nephilim during the days of Noah. They were the offspring of the “gods” who dominated reproduction by claiming the right to mate with whatever woman they desired. Violence filled the earth through the superhuman population. Today, there is something that has power over physiology to give people superhuman abilities and its “offspring” fills every city around the world. They are living by the mark of the beast which gives them extraordinary knowledge, skills, and physical abilities. At the same time, there is violence worldwide.
In Genesis 19 it is written about the mobs of people, an entire city of old and young alike, who were corrupting the righteous. There were two Angels on the streets of that city and Lot brought them into his house so they wouldn’t have to sleep on the streets of Sodom and Gomorrah. The whole city surrounded the house to demand that the Angels were handed over to them for the purpose of corrupting them sexually. That certainly describes how the world is today as Godly people are being corrupted by social demands. Children cannot even go to school without being exposed to lessons that are opposed to the teachings of the Bible. Parents are in a very tight squeeze between being “socially acceptable” parents or being considered abusive for teaching their children Biblical values. Cities around the world are mandating the mark of the beast which is contrary to Godly heritage, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.
In the same way that Noah and Lot were saved from the corrupt world of that day, Christians will also experience Salvation. The Day of the Lord is coming which will destroy this old heaven and earth and a new heaven and earth will be created for the New Jerusalem. Everyone who comes to God through Jesus Christ will be resurrected from the dead to live eternally with Him. Those who reject Jesus Christ and live for the desires of the flesh will be punished with eternal torment.
“For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell,
putting them in chains of darkness to be held for judgment;
And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the unGodly;
if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes,
and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly;
And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
(for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by their lawless deeds he saw and heard)—
The Lord knows how to deliver the Godly out of temptations,
and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:”
2 Peter 2:4-9
Followers of the Mark of Beast Chief Among Those Punished.
The benefits of the flesh include everything classified as sensuality. Yes, that includes sexual sensuality, but it includes much more than that. Emotions, feelings, intuition, etc. are also part of sensuality. The thing that has power over physiology is all about granting the desires of the flesh to everyone who is willing to live by the flesh. Those fleshly benefits include enhanced intuition, endowment with knowledge, extraordinary physical ability, pleasant feelings, youthfulness, extraordinary skill, healings, empowered with authority, etc. Those who live by the mark of the beast are gifted with those fleshly desires. Those fleshly benefits come by discarding the need for Jesus Christ, trampling on the Holy Spirit, and blaspheming God.
Those who live by the sensuality of the flesh are living by the mark of the beast and are chief among those who are destined for punishment in eternal torment. As is obvious in today’s world, they despise government as they esteem their service to the mark of the beast above all authorities and God. Today, they are in the process of demanding changes to national constitutions to create a one world constitution rooted in the thing that has power over physiology. They are presumptuous in not recognizing any limits for themselves, as is seen in their boasting. They are self-willed in getting their way, especially in demanding what they want over Godly foundations. They have proven time and time again that they are not afraid to speak evil of those in authority and even of Jesus Christ Himself.
“But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise government. Presumptuous are they, self-willed, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.”
2 Peter 2:10
“….to you who do not hold to her teaching and have not learned Satan’s so-called deep secrets,“
‘I will not impose any other burden on you, except to hold on to what you have until I come.’”
“I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown.”
Revelation 2:24-25, 3:11
