AN END TIMES CHURCH
A POWERFUL AMERICAN CHURCH IS RISING UP
A Great Falling Away which will Look Like a Great End Times Revival is only Beginning
The preceding article prompted a few observations about a movement within the Christian Church which is spreading rapidly. More can be found about this movement at Bridal Eschatology. The movement, its doctrine and its stated purposes dovetail nicely with Scripture, Bible prophecy and end times current events.
The Death of Christianity – Written by a professed Christian, and yet an article which is meant to play upon the pride, doubts and fear–as well as a few lesser sins–which reside in those Christians who read it. Its theme of “Compromise or die!” has become a common chorus among those pretend Christians who the Bible says become “mockers and scoffers” in the last days.
Such pieces seem to be aimed–not at true believers (who are to walk by faith not experiences) but at the Supper Club Christian. Those who desperately want Christianity to be like a dinner party with lots of eating and drinking and enjoying this present life (which of course includes their Church) with lots of shiny happy people like themselves.
“And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake.”
Before their very eyes they are watching what they believe to be Christianity slip away. They know Jesus promised that the gates of hell would not prevail against His Church–but they will admit: they’re worried. They see evil running rampant through all America, led by the very public sins of homosexual marriage, abortion and Pride; people are waxing worse and worse–and they know events are just getting started.
Luke 21:16-17 sounds so ghastly!
And so they welcome any confirming experience of God’s mighty power.
They have one eye on the eastern sky and another looking over their shoulder at what appears to be a gathering victory parade of the wicked.
And so, it’s with relief that they watch it arise: a mighty prayer-driven Church, wielding power like a great warrior of God–and representing THEM. Led by loyal Americans and true Christians who will make them Proud to be Christians–Proud to be Americans!
Instead of worrying about insults and the long-whispered persecution, their Church will be strong, respected and have the support of the the American government! Why, even the top leaders will be very Proud and very public members of this world-conquering Church.
This Church will especially appear as a Godsend to those Christians who had placed their hopes on escaping what the Bible had clearly said they must face. When staring into that unthinkable abyss–Left Behind!–this Church and its power will seem to be a lifeline from God Himself.
And this Church will say all the right things. In some cases, the very same things they themselves have been saying.
And what the Church will do will line up with the events which American Christians have been taught will happen in the end times–and the Church wins!
It will win over non-believers, over atheists, over Muslim terrorists. Over the obviously apostate prosperity preachers; over the purpose-driven techno-religious numbers-crunchers; over the heresies which issue daily from Christian TV.
Why this Church will even triumph over that end times bad guy: The AntiChrist! This Church will rescue Christianity–or so the people sitting in its pews will think. This Church will not only rescue Christianity, it will rescue the good old USA–and everyone knows what a Christian nation the United States is and always has been.
This Church will clearly be a winner.
Everyone loves a winner. Especially the world.
“Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.”
THIS Church will be the way they were taught “it used to be;” a return to a “country founded as a Christian nation.” Hey, weren’t we founded on Judeo-Christian principles? Why sure! What does it matter that most of the founders couldn’t stand Jesus? Everyone knows that we were dedicated to God Himself!
FINALLY! This will be the Christianity of which many have long dreamed.
Respected. In charge. The warrior Church, cleansing the earth of heresy and non-belief. Moving from triumph to triumph, from earthly glory to glory. Crushing the nations–as the true representative of Jesus, of course–all the while singing loudly as it’s accomplished.
Yes, this Church will indeed be popular. Popular beyond words.
“Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.”
There’s going to come a time soon when professing American Christians will belong to a Church that they believe honors Christ; which gives them access to great power and miracles and which unmistakeably demonstrates that power for the whole unbelieving world to see. They will watch with tears in their eyes as the world flocks to fill their buildings.
Meanwhile, many of the obviously apostate mega-churches will not fare so well.
The revival so long talked about–so long hungered for–will at last be a reality. And it will be HUGE. It will be worldwide and people of every kindred, tongue and nation will gladly convert.
Truly, it will be amazing. Everyone loves a winner–and this Church will certainly be a winner. The whole world will seemingly be on fire and passionate for this Church and for the very Presence of God which will manifest.
This Church will rise up, shake its fist and declare, “Who’s dead? Not us! We’re not dead!”
Where will all the mockers and scoffers be then? And the naysayers–such as this writer: what of them?
They will be put under the feet of the Church, who will proclaim itself to be the true representative of Christ on earth–and not just any representative (that sounds too much like the obviously apostate pope). This Church will be the Bride of Christ herself! Justified by combat for its god; confirmed through victory–and that victory will include cleansing the earth, purging the planet of any who don’t get with the Church’s straight-from-god program.
The wildest dreams of many American Christians will have come true.
“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.”
And not so very many months afterwards, their wildest dreams will be revealed to be nothing more than one long nightmare.
“What luck for rulers that men do not think.”
“And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.”
“And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand. And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.”
“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.”
“For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.”
“Ignorance is bliss.”
Do you love the Truth? Do You Know Jesus?
NOTE: Just so there is no mistake: the apostate American church is part of a larger end times religion. It is not the be-all and end-all of itself. This larger end times religion is what the Bible calls the “whore.”
BUT, the American part is a very, very, VERY significant part of the whole whore church. It is suspected that most people will be unaware (and will not care even if they are aware) of the larger picture: they will be more than happy to sit in their apostate churches, worshiping the dragon while pretending to worship the God of heaven.
