“And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” (2 Thessalonians 2:8-12; all scripture quoted is from the King James Version)
Isn’t it amazing to us how effectively Satan propagates his false doctrine to deceive the whole world? Early this morning, I turned to a Korean tv news service to which I subscribe and was saddened to see the broadcaster speaking of how the Korean government was leading the charge against discrimination by putting in place programs to promote gender identification in schools and colleges. We now know all the code words for the kinds of perversions that we see being promoted in our own schools and society at large in America. Satan speaks all languages and moves in every culture to undermine the image of God that He placed in Eden.
Until 2013, the transgender condition followed the science and common sense of centuries by labelling the condition gender dysphoria. That is the real science that is being denied since that year. The DNA established at conception has not changed as a result of dark desire or political perversion.
The sudden globalist move to socialist Marxism is stunning in its general proponency around the world. It seems that the whole world is taking their spiritual guidance from CNN. All that for centuries, and even millenia, that has been considered as good and upright has suddenly become radical and hateful. On the other had, all that tradition and morals have taught to be wicked is not applauded by the globalist propagandist.
Though I agree with little that Franklin D. Roosevelt said or did, I do agree with his statement, “In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.“ – Franklin D. Roosevelt. The political absurdities we witness today are not a result of bungling ignorance, but well-planned and articulated designs of wicked minds inspired by the dark Prince of the Air. The current President is clueless to his own actions, but there is a power working behind the curtain to manipulate his mind and actions. Wealth and prestige is the bait our Adversary uses to bait the hook, but utter desolation will be the result unless the Church – the prime compromising force behind the acceptance of evil – awakes to recall its First Love.
Imagine a young boy of five or six years being told by an authority figure such as his teacher that he is actually a girl. The influence of a teacher over a child is significant. He may be confused enough to believe her. If so, it has become the modus operandi of the education system to advocate a sex change operation that will utterly ruin the life of the child. The same is true of young girls.
It has been the goal of the serpent from the early days of Eden to destroy the man and woman that God had made. He acts out of envy and avarice. He literally hates God’s Creation to the point of self-destruction! His weapons of engagement are prodigious. He will use every imaginable and immoral approach to achieve his purpose including wars of aggression, disease, murder, abortion, and sexual perversions. The first of these destroy the body – the latter, the soul.
As our social values and moral purpose has gradually declined, God had sent many warnings to us to awaken us from our deathly sleep; but we have ignored his warnings. We have rejected the very Hand of Providence that established us a nation among the nations of the world peculiar above all others for Godly virtue and individual freedoms. God is not compelled to move His hand of Judgment against Godless regimes such as Red China or North Korea. Their very evil nature will destroy them in due time; but the nation has been dearly beloved of God, and who turns away in rejection of His blessings, will suffer a greater judgment than all others who never knew God at all.
Some who read this devotion may think my words are too strong. Perhaps I should leaven my speech with mercy. I will not do so because deliberate wickedness deserves no mercy. We must turn from our wicked ways, or become part and parcel of those other nations who groan in the dustheap of history. “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” (Galatians 6:7), and, “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 ho opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4) If I did not love my people and country, I would remain silent.
