This documentary on what is called the emergent church is a very good representation of what is going
on in the church world. We are preparing the world for
a global one world church headed by the false prophet. It gives one a good perspective on how the falling away from Biblical truth will give rise to favorable conditions for the rise of a one world Church. The apostle Paul had this to say about this part of the end times scenario:
2 Thessalonians 2: 3
"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."
The conclusion is that perhaps there is no such thing as an “enemy”. He probably has something to offer us. Maybe we should talk to him and negotiate a spiritual peace agreement. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is, as is the case here. Those who propose that idea believe we can have one big happy world if we throw our differences aside and all worship the same god. Is that the answer? To an unwary soul, putting all of our doctrinal issues aside seems to be the best thing. If we all come to the same spiritual table and create a universal application for a god that each of us know in our own way, that will solve everything. In the spirit of love and reconciliation, let us take a little bit of everything from every religion so everyone will be happy and accepted.
As a Christian, is this what Jesus said for us to do? No. No. No. If Jesus Christ abdicates the throne of the church as our Lord and King, who do you think will assume the leadership position? Who will call the shots? You don’t suppose the smiling enemy we deem harmless could come to the table and lead this mighty worldwide church? I’m afraid so, saints. He not only could but he will and he is in the process of doing so now. His spirit is already at work in the world luring many away from the message of salvation through the death of Jesus Christ on the cross and replacing it with the idea of many paths to the same God. Consider what the Bible says about this:
1 John 4: 2-3
“Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.”
Yes, that spirit of antichrist is here. That evil but smiling Enemy who deceives the whole world has not yet been unveiled as the liar he is. It used to be predominately the non-churched world that was deceived. But now deception has crept into the church. In my many years as a Christian, my observation has been that those who claim the name “Christian” usually would never deny Him outright. Instead, they are more likely to either add something to the message of the cross, or change the message the cross, in essence stripping the Lord of his deity. The end result is a totally different Jesus void of the power to save a lost and dying world.
If you look around at the church world in general, this is what you will see. Fortunately, not all church groups are doing this, but many are unwarily deviating from the exclusive message of the cross with an emphasis elsewhere. This is the end times. In the Bible, 2 Timothy, chapter 3 gives a wonderful account of what is happening and refers to this period of time as “the last days”. The fifth verse of this chapter describes this scenario followed by a stern warning to the believer: “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” (2 Timothy 3: 5)
As I have been observing the time in which we live and comparing it with what the Word of God says, I have decided it is time for me to get up on the wall. I am usually not a person that speaks out simply because of my awkward inability to do so, but my Bible speaks to me and reminds me of this: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,” Philippians 4: 13.
Therefore, I will set the trumpet to my lips and sound the alarm. I wonder how many will be with me. There are others that see what I see but I suppose we will not be the majority. I hope to cover many pertinent subjects as I search the scriptures in hopes that this may help us all get through this maize of confusion and stand until the very end when God calls us home. It is with this purpose that I now begin to write: The trumpet is my keyboard and this blog is my alarm. See you soon.
With love in Jesus Name,
