Pull Them Out Of The Fire
"Do not keep silent, O God of my praise, for the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful have opened against me. They have spoken against me with a lying tongue. They have also surrounded me with words of hatred, and fought against me without a cause." Psalm 109:1-3 This is the generation characterized by those who call evil good and good evil. As America goes down, her evils are multiplied and believers who speak God's Word against the wicked are called "haters," along with the many other insults hurled against them. How has it become "hatred" when men simply speak the Word of God against sin? Well ...they hate the Word of God. It has become a CRIME to speak the Word of God against sin. Who ever would have believed it of the very nation established upon the Judeo-Christian ethic, the very Word of God. "Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil, who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;" Isaiah 5:20 What sin? Well let's look at the "theory" of evolution, for example. Actually, the theory of evolution is a Satanic lie; if one examines closely it will become apparent that the very opposite is the truth. The truth is that everything DEvolves. God created our world perfect, and said it was "good." But it's obvious that it is no longer so. What happened? Sin happened. Sin enterred the perfect world. Adam was given authority over the earth, but Satan knew that if he could cause Adam to sin then Satan could usurp that authority. And so he did. When Adam sinned, the curse from sin came upon the entire earth and what was perfect began to deteriorate, the "death principle" set in. The death principle.... The corruption of DNA. Every living thing became subject to the death principle, and with every succeeding generation, the genes have mutated to the point where today, all is corrupt. What started out as perfect, now presents with innumerable genetically-caused diseases. Thousands of them. Genetic mutation has taken life from the realm of perfect, all the way to the corruption and afflictions in all that is seen today. It's not just human DNA that has degenerated. ALL living things have degenerated as the world lies in the corruption of the death principle. Society has become so wicked that one shudders to think what it will be if the degeneration is allowed to continue. It takes place little by little, almost imperceptibly, and because it's so unnoticeable the world is systematically desensitized to the point that we do not perceive what is happening at all and wickedness has become the "new normal." One of the "signs" signaling the last generation is that knowledge would greatly increase (Daniel 12:4). That certainly describes the age we live in today. A hundred years ago people were still riding horses and using oil lamps. Now we've put men on the moon. But has the great increase in knowledge produced a society improved? I suggest the very opposite is the case. As we've patted ourselves on the back for being a generation more advanced and "liberated" than any other in the history of mankind, we have chosen to ignore the downward slide that should be screaming at us, begging for our attention. No, in fact the increase in knowledge could lead to the destruction of all humanity. Manipulation of DNA could bring monstrosities and diseases never before known to man. A nuclear weapon in the hands of an evil nation could destroy a whole country, in fact it could end all life on this earth.The advancement in knowledge could wreak such havoc that men's hearts will fail them for fear as they see what is coming upon the earth. This very thing was prophesied by Jesus Christ concerning "the last days." "...men’s hearts failing them from fear and the anticipation of those things which are coming on the earth..." Luke 21:26 This is obviously the last generation of the age, as every sign that Jesus Christ foretold is now staring us in the face. Whereas in times past evil was perpetrated in secret, now it is all out in the open and demanding its acceptance - and not only acceptance, but is demanding the approval of society. Moral law is being thrown down and stomped on with scorning filthy feet. This is the day when the great and ferocious battle between good and evil is taking center stage. This is the day when evil will reign as Satan has his day and brings his kingdom to rule over all men under a global authority led by a man called “the Antichrist,” and a global false religion the Bible calls a "whore." That's where this is going. Soon. In our immediate future. We know the end of the story, we know that Satan will finally be destroyed off the face of the earth and he, along with his Antichrist and false prophet will be thrown into the lake of fire to be tormented forever for what they have done to God's creation. "The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast (one of the names of the Antichrist) and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever." Revelation 20:10 And those who followed him will have the same fate. "He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be my son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” Revelation 21:7-8 And so the story will end. Evil will finally come to its climax, reek unimaginable havoc, ruin multitudes, and leave a wake of destruction, but it will finally end when its hated enemy, the Lord of Glory, will return to this earth and put an end to all evil. Right now, there is nothing we can do to reverse the downward spiral. Prophecy will and must be fulfilled. But the one thing we CAN do is reach the hearts of people with this message and bring as many as are willing into the Kingdom of God. We can put our hand down into the fire and rescue them. "And on some have compassion, making a distinction, BUT OTHERS SAVE WITH FEAR, PULLING THEM OUT OF THE FIRE, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh." Jude 1:23 A Prayer: Father, as this age approaches its end and evil has taken over the whole world, we know that there is yet hope for deceived people to be brought into the truth and light of your Word. Grant your believers the power to reach their hearts and save them even as out of the fire so that they may be delivered from the wrath that is to come. Open hearts to the truth, Lord, and bring revival even as the world marches steadfastly toward the destruction that is coming. Oh Father, help us, enable us to rescue many of those falling to destruction, that they might be enlightened by your Word and that they might surrender to you. We thank you Lord for each and every soul that will triumph over the forces of evil meant to destroy them, and with them we will praise and thank you for all eternity.
