The Battle Lines That Christians Face

9 “Then they will hand you over to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name. 10 And at that time many will fall away, and they will betray one another and hate one another. 11 And many false prophets will rise up and mislead many people.

-Matthew 24:9-11, NASB 2020

Christians are under extreme attack in today’s world. We see two line formations that have been formed against the Christian community. One of the lines is formed in the front, and the second line is formed behind.

The Line Formation In The Front

The first line formation is seen in verse 9. Tribulation (difficult times), which for some will cost them their lives for Jesus. These murderers are motivated by hatred of Jesus Christ all over the world. To name a few groups that are participating in this line formation (the front lines): One of them is Islam, who are killing Christians in countries like the Middle East, Africa, and in Asia, it is the communist party. The other groups who are hating believers in Christ are the LGBT, the Atheists, the socialists, the globalists, and those who might identify themselves with any of these groups but support them (the groups I mentioned) from afar.

The Line Formation In The Back

The line that is formed behind us [Christians] are false prophets (verse 11). They preach a different Jesus, Gospel, and a different Holy Spirit.

For if one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted, this you tolerate very well!

-2 Corinthians 11:4, NASB 2020

False Christian converts are falling away (committing apostasy) in the back by the false prophets, who are deceiving them through a false gospel (Ecumenism), and on the front lines, the Christians are physically attacked.

What these attacks are accomplishing is shaking off like a fruit tree in the wind that drops the fruits that are not secure. These tribulations are shaking off of Jesus those who don’t love Him, showing who they are, not having genuine faith. Jesus only wants true believers, having the Holy Spirit living in their hearts. Those with the Holy Spirit living inside of them are the ones made into the image of Christ Jesus. The fake ones are not changed and reflect the world, not Christ, those are the ones He shakes off.

The good news is that we will endure because of the strength of the Lord. Jesus in John 17:15 prayed for us, “I am not asking You to take them out of the world, but to keep them away from the evil one.”

As Christians, we must hold the lines, both in the front and in the back, don’t allow them to break through. Hold the lines! Remember, we are fighting in the strength of the Lord, not in ours. David was a young man when he took down a giant named Goliath. He did so through the power of the LORD. We have this power, which comes from the Lord Jesus Christ, who lives in us.

(Part 3) The Coming Jewish Messiah Will Be The False One

The continuation [Part 3] of the false Messiah coming into the world as the true Messiah and deceiving many, especially, the nation of Israel. If you haven’t read yet Part 2, click on the link below.

“Part 2-The Coming Jewish Messiah Will Be The False One”

Revelation 12:6, 13-17

6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness where she had a place prepared by God, so that there she would be nourished for 1,260 days.

The “woman” mentioned here is Israel. For more details on the word “fled” read Matthew 24:15-18. God sends His people to “the wilderness” as He has prepared a place of safety for them away from the dragon’s reach. The word “nourished” refers to God providing for their basic needs. God will protect them “for 1,260 days” which will be the second half of the three and a half years.

13 And when the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child. 14 But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for a time, times, and half a time, away from the presence of the serpent. 15 And the serpent hurled water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, so that he might cause her to be swept away with the flood. 16 But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and drank up the river which the dragon had hurled out of his mouth. 17 So the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus.

“The dragon” who is Satan, will be defeated in the war of wars, which will occur in the second half of the Great Tribulation. “The woman” represents the nation of Israel, which Satan will try to destroy after he loses the war of wars that takes place in heaven. “The male Child” refers to Jesus Christ, who was born in Jerusalem. The phrase “the two wings of the great eagle” (read Exodus 19:4 & Psalm 91:4 for the meaning of it) will show that God Himself will take them to safety. The phrase “nourished for a time, times, and half a time” refers to three and a half years of safety. The phrase “the serpent” is another title for Satan, which points back to the beginning in the Book of Genesis Chapter 3, who caused the downfall of Adam and Eve.

The phrase “hurled water like a river” could refer to an army sent after the Jewish people to kill them all. The phrase “the earth helped the woman” means that the Lord will intervene to help the Jewish people. After God helps “the woman” who is Israel, Satan, the dragon, will become “enraged” since he was prohibited from destroying them. The phrase “the rest of her children” refers to the believers in Jesus Christ who resides in the other parts of the world. The phrase “keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus” means that not all who call themselves Christian are, but only those who keep the Word of God.

All Scripture were taken from the NASB 2020

To The Concerned Folks

This post is for those who had a genuine concern for me, thinking that I was becoming prideful in my comments while defending the truth of God’s Word. I appreciate that concern and will try to answer why I stand on certain issues.

When defending God’s Word, sometimes it might come out harsh, which isn’t my intent, and I will work on being as gracious as possible without compromising God’s truth. Even Jesus offended the religious leaders of His time.

12 Then the disciples came and *said to Him, “Do You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this statement?” 13 But He answered and said, “Every plant which My heavenly Father did not plant will be uprooted. 14 Leave them alone; they are blind guides of blind people. And if a person who is blind guides another who is blind, both will fall into a pit.”

-Matthew 15:12-14, NASB 2020

The truth hurts when the person doesn’t want to submit to it. No one likes to be corrected or disciplined. That’s human nature. But if the one correcting you is unbiblical with what he is bringing forth, then you must swing the pendulum back to him. Meaning, you must assert your position if indeed it is biblical. The Scripture is our foundation. It is where we get the truth, and our lives MUST be constructed on it.

One of the concerns was in reference to this comment of mine: “All Democrats, are in support of murdering babies and for homosexuality. They pretend to care for Spanish and black people. All they want is our vote. There is zero good in a Democrat. They are godless and if they claim to believe in God, then they are deceiving themselves because they support unbiblical practices.”

If you are a Christian, knowing full well that your support will endanger the lives of innocent babies, would you think that the other policies can somehow trump the murdering of the unborn? Even if the Democrats just supported that policy and nothing else, that alone should disqualify that party from receiving the support of a Christian who is spirit-filled. Friend, murder is murder. You can paint it whichever way you want, but the result will be the same.

We as Christians are not here to help kill people, but to give them the message of salvation. How can that child grow up to do the will of God if it is killed?

Some Christians vote Democrat because they have passed laws that helps them of certain benefits they need. Let’s put it into perspective.

I don’t want to sound mean or insensitive to those who need help. By choosing to vote for a party that is pro-abortion since it will benefit you in continuing your coverage, you are thus choosing self-preservation over someone else’s life. What type of faith is that? That mentality will force you to make a decision that will harm others instead of trusting Christ for the things that you need (Matthew 6:33). As long as you got your food on the table and your healthcare coverage, who cares if millions of babies die?

Seeing it in that perspective, how does it make you feel?

I cannot fathom how a Christian who reads the Bible and knows what God feels about babies who were sacrificed to Molech, as mentioned in Scripture, can still be okay with supporting laws that approve of such practices like it.

I won’t go into the other issue of homosexuality since its wickedness is obvious, but I will address why I support the president. First of all, President Trump is not a Christian. The office of the Presidency is not predicated on personality but on being capable of doing the job. One of the requirements for a Christian to choose a candidate is if his morals align more to a Biblical view. That is how I vote. I am not voting for a Christian leader, but for the best person for the job who is for religious freedom, protects the people, born and the unborn, and supports Israel.

What does the Bible say about politics?

Every person is to be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.

-Romans 13:1, NASB 2020

God is the one who instituted governments for the protection of the people from invaders and wickedness.

2 Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves. 3 For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same

-Romans 13:2-3, NASB 2020

13 Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether to a king as the one in authority, 14 or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and the praise of those who do right. 15 For such is the will of God, that by doing right you silence the ignorance of foolish people.

-1 Peter 2:13-15, NASB 2020

Pray To The Lord For The Welfare Of Your Nation

Seek the prosperity of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the LORD in its behalf; for in its prosperity will be your prosperity.

-Jeremiah 29:7, NASB 2020

How do you seek the prosperity for the nation you live in? The answer is found in Proverbs 29, see below.

2 When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, But when a wicked person rules, people groan. 4 The king gives stability to the land by justice, But a person who takes bribes ruins it.

-Proverbs 29:2, 4, NASB 2020

The phrase “righteous increase” refers to the laws that govern a nation, to see the welfare of people’s lives, protecting its people from invaders outside, the wicked from the inside, and to help increase one’s prosperity. A nation that’s corrupted destroys everyone living in it. My mother left a socialist country, Cuba that oppresses its people by taking away their freedom. To see America headed in the same direction with the Democrat/socialist party is very concerning.

Look what happened to the Jews in Germany when no one opposed an evil leader. As Christians, we must see the welfare of America to advance the gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ because our time is short, and it will get worse before the rapture.

I will never compromise the Word of God; I judge all things according to it. If you have any other concerns, feel free to leave me a comment and I will answer with Scripture and with grace.

May we continue to grow into the image of Christ. Fight for the gospel against false doctrine, exposing them. Contend for righteousness and warn others of Satan’s trap. Read the Scriptures every day with prayer, interceding for leaders, family, and friends. God bless.

P.S. I thought I was done with political posts, but someone contacted me again through a comment engaging me with the same issues. What you see here is my personal conviction and it isn’t going to change.
