Whether we realize it or not, there is tremendous spiritual
warfare taking place in our world today. In numerous instances, we
are hearing stories of young people going to Christian colleges
only to have their spiritual lives shipwrecked. They may have been
safer in secular colleges.
At the same time, we know of
countless numbers of Christians who have no church to go to
because the ones that are available have abandoned the simplicity
of the Gospel for a universal emerging 'spirituality'.
Canadian singer/songwriter Trevor Baker sings in his song The
Lonely Road, committed Christians may have to endure much
loneliness or isolation in the future for lack of genuine
fellowship. Please remember that while Jesus said we cannot know
the day or the hour of His return, He also instructed us to
observe the seasons. Today, the stage is being set for the
fulfillment of the events described in Matthew 24, and in fact,
things are moving at a highly accelerated rate. While the church
has slept, tares have been sown into Gods wheat field (Matthew
13:25). The apostasy we see in the church today is the result of
Satan sowing these tares in the church.
We will see a blending
of religious, political, and economic forces as future events
unfold. Forced Unity will be a key to the future and will be an
increasing theme as the world awaits the Antichrist.
Discerning Christians must keep praying and do what you can to
help sound the trumpet. The enemy forces are advancing; in fact,
they are within our ranks.
'I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the
trumpet.' (Jeremiah 6:17)
