END TIMES APOSTASY: Revolt not Revival

APOSTASY, NOT REVIVAL: The Bible is clear.
APOSTASY, NOT REVIVAL: The Bible is clear.

“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;”
2 Thessalonians 2:3


“Let no man deceive you BY ANY MEANS”

That warning should be enough.  But it hasn’t been.

What was this warning about?

Paul was warning the Thessalonikans that “that day” (the ” coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him” of 2 Thessalonians 2:1; i.e., The Day of the Lord; The Day of Christ) would not come EXCEPT first, two events had to happen.

1- except there come a falling away first, and

2- that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;”

That seems to be clear enough.

Jesus won’t come back except that first, two events have to happen: the apostasia (“falling away”) and the revelation of the man of sin.

MAN OF SIN: The Man of Sin is Coming

So, Paul is revealing that there will come an apostasia (defection, apostasy, revolt) before Jesus Christ comes back.

So what do the apostate churches tell their congregations?

That they should be looking for a great end times revival!

Why are the churches abuzz with the talk of revival when the Word of God declares revolt?

Because the churches are the center of the revolt; ground zero for falling away.

Like Israel before it, and Samson before Israel, the glory of the Lord has departed the churches–and those involved do not even know it.

“And she said, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he awoke out of his sleep, and said, I will go out as at other times before, and shake myself. And he wist [knew] not that the LORD was departed from him.”
Judges 16:20

“Then the glory of the LORD departed from off the threshold of the house, and stood over the cherubims.”
Ezekiel 10:18

“Though they bring up their children, yet will I bereave them, that there shall not be a man left: yea, woe also to them when I depart from them!”
Hosea 9:12

The churches are no longer the body of Christ: they are (and have been) a satanic counterfeit.

Satan Has Counterfeited the Christian Church

The revolt (the falling away) is already everywhere around us. That those in the apostate churches do not see or acknowledge their apostasy is proof enough that it is here and only the revelation of the man of sin remains.

Thessalonians 2:1 also is a verse about the timing of the rapture. But that clear enough verse (and all of the other verses) are not enough to dissuade the apostates of their “Left Behind” pre-tribulation fantasies.

Sad: many, many church-goers trust the words of a fictional series of books over the clear Word of God.

But back to the apostasia (falling away).

There are no indications in the Bible that there will be any revival of any type until Jesus returns.  Until then, believers are warned of worse and worse times.

NOT revival.

IN FACT, the Bible has NOTHING good to say about either the times or the churches in the days before Jesus Christ comes back.

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”
2 Timothy 3:1-5

(A very good description of the apostate churches and their attitudes toward what God’s Word says.)

“Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.”
2 Peter 3:3-4

“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.”
2 Timothy 3:12-13

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.”
1 Timothy 4:1-3

“How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.”
Jude 1:18

“Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
2 Timothy 3:7

apostasy

Does this sound like revival?

Of course not.

But the cheerful, grinning wolves in the pulpit (and their always-smiling workers of deceit among the pews) are not in the business of leading the sheep. They are in the business of deceiving while being deceived themselves.

“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”
2 Corinthians 11:13-15

So, IF anyone has ears to hear, let him hear: there is no revival until AFTER Jesus Christ returns.

Until then, all believers have to look forward to are the persecution, scoffing and mocking of this sad, lost, corrupt world and the always-increasing deceptions of Satan’s deceitful workers.

All those who say they are looking for a great end times revival before then are either 1- hopelessly deceived; or 2- hopelessly deceived and deceiving others.

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16

THE GOSPEL

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
1 Corinthians 1:18-19

FAITH: 12 Questions about Faith Answered with Bible Verses

FAITH: What the Bible says about Faith
FAITH: What the Bible says about Faith

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT FAITH: 12 SCRIPTURES

Faith.

Without faith, a believer cannot be a believer. Without faith, there is no Christianity. Without faith, no one can aspire to eternal salvation.

What does the Bible have to say about faith?

Plenty.

Here are a dozen Scriptures which answer questions about Faith.


1- What is faith?

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
Hebrews 11:1

2- How can one increase their faith?

“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
Romans 10:17

3- Why is faith important to the believer?

“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
Hebrews 11:6

4- When faith is tested, what is the result for the believer?

“My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;  Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.”
James 1:2-3

5- What is the instrument by which believers overcome the world and the things of this world?

“For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.”
1 John 5:4

6- What is absolutely necessary to be saved?

“For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.”
Romans 1:17

7- What is required to be called a “child of God?”

“For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.”
Galatians 3:26

8- Who is the perfecter of faith in the believers?

“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Hebrews 12:2

 

FAITH
FAITH

9- What is necessary for the Christian to walk as a representative of God in this lost and hostile world?

“Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)”
2 Corinthians 5:6-7

10- By what are believers in Jesus Christ justified?

“We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles, Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.”
Galatians 2:15-16

11- By what are believers eternally saved?

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
Ephesians 2:8-9

12- AFTER a person is born again (eternally saved), what is the evidence of a believer’s salvation? What separates those who have faith from those who SAY they have faith?

“What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.”
James 2:14-26

“Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?”
Luke 18:8


“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16

THE GOSPEL

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
1 Corinthians 1:18-19

MEDIA NARRATIVES ALERT

“How can the reader know when the Corporate Media is lying to him (never mind the fact that the media is Satan’s Mouthpiece and Satan is the father of lies)? One easy way to tell is the use of “Why” and “How” in the headlines of an article. When the reader sees “Why?” or “How?” in the headline–occasionally “What” is used–that which follows will be a fairy tale, a narrative, a bedtime story spun by the media for the benefit of the media’s master. “Why” usually denotes an on-going narrative; “How” signifies a story line which explains past events. Not all narratives begin with “How” or “Why.” However, the most in-your-face, over-the-top ones usually do. ALL political “news” is narrative.

The Corporate Media

“Things are never quite what they seem. Events are seldom close to how the media and history portray them.”


In the Age of pope Francis, can a Republican be a good Catholic – Of course.  A Catholic (good or bad) is not a Christian.  Neither, for the most part are Republicans.  There should be no conflicts in 99.9 percent of the cases.

WHY Conservatives should hate the Confederate flag

WHY Americans secretly love a gladitorial blowhard like Donald Trump – Begging the question: DO Americans love a gladitorial blowhard like Trump?

Of course not.

But the Corporate Media has propaganda to sell–and sell it it will!

HOW Obama tore apart the US-Israeli alliance – We’ll see.

WHY Mass Surveillance Violates International Law – What’s the narrative in this story?

For one, the Corporate Media has concentrated attention on the NSA and its high-tech surveillance.  Which means that the more traditional surveillance methods (such as the human networks built by various levels of government and their agencies–which have reported on “friends” and neighbors in the USA for decades) go unreported.

Naturally.

Is the reader surprised that this surveillance has been occurring in the Land of the Free for decades?

Then the reader is woefully naive.
