What a beautiful word of comfort

You know what? There’s this pastor who spends an awful lot of time, I mean most of his preaching time, teaching his congregation about conspiracy; what’s being taught by false prophets; the television and music industry; the dreadful laws that have plunged many nations into unbearable sin; and on and on.

There’s lots and lots of news about the things that are physically happening to our world. There are things that are being taught about the legal drug industry, never mind the illegal! That’s a whole other story.

The Bible gives a strong warning about this. The WHOLE WORLD wondered after the beast!

Are you SERIOUS, Lord?

You know, people tell us we have to ‘watch’. What did Jesus teach? He said: “Watch and PRAY”.

Luke: 21:34-38

The Importance of Watching

34 “But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. 35 For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36 Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy[c] to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”

37 And in the daytime He was teaching in the temple, but at night He went out and stayed on the mountain called Olivet. 38 Then early in the morning all the people came to Him in the temple to hear Him.

Worrying about the cares of this life. Does that ring a bell with anyone? There’s some horror going on now. I never thought I’d live to see the day I’d be watching such dreadful news about fires; weather; the ground opening up; the volcanoes that are active now. False prophecy; rabid twisting of Scripture, which, if you try and defend the truth, people will hate you for it. The people who will hate and betray you are Christians. Folks, I’m living proof of that, and not just once. Just be sure that what you hear, or, God help you, what you TEACH has been properly interpreted.

I mean it. Make sure you are hearing and preaching the TRUTH. Don’t invoke God’s anger. You know what He warns in the book of Revelation about what will happen to those who misuse that book?

Revelation 22:18-19

A Warning

18 For[i] I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add[j] to him the plagues that are written in this book; 19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away[k]his part from the Book[l] of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Did you get that? This will happen. It WILL happen.

Now to the word of comfort:

In Revelation 17, we are told of those who give their power to the beast for one hour. Do you live in a safe country with laws you have to live by which reflect God’s requirements? Or are you fighting to get those Godly laws back? If the former, then you have people in charge who care about what God has written. If such a place still exists, I would urge you to keep quiet about where you live. I’m not joking. If you tell anyone about it, you’ll soon be overrun by the ungodly.

But, if you are like me, and are watching your country being sold up the Swanee; here’s what God promises you and me:

Revelation 17:1-18

The Scarlet Woman and the Scarlet Beast

Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me,[a] “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”

So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication.[b] And on her forehead a name was written:

MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT,
THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS
AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS
OF THE EARTH.

I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement.

The Meaning of the Woman and the Beast

But the angel said to me, “Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns. The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.[c]

“Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits. 10 There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. 11 The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition.

12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. 13 These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. 14 These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”

15 Then he said to me, “The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues. 16 And the ten horns which you saw on[d] the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. 17 For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. 18 And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.”

Let’s do that again:

12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. 13 These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. 14 These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”

You are concerned that you’ve been given over to evil? Fear not, little flock. Your Saviour, Jesus Christ is the Lamb written about here. Your leaders may be making war with Him right now. But the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords, and He is King of kings. We who belong to Him and with Him are the chosen. We are the faithful and true.

Okay! So be comforted. You don’t have to worry about who leads your country. You just have to pray the Lord won’t delay any longer. We know He is patient, not wanting anyone to perish, but that all should repent. That’s true also. It is written. But He won’t allow His Spirit to wait forever. His Father, and our Father has a Day appointed when all should fall at the Name of His Son. At the Name of Jesus – EVERY knee shall bow.

Pray for it.
