MANY SIGHT-WALKING CALLS FOR CHRISTIANS TO ARM THEMSELVES
This past week, a mass shooter, in the graphic media telling of the tale, supposedly asked his victims their religion.
It’s claimed he then shot Christians in the head while shooting non-Christians in the legs.
On cue, the Corporate Media screamed “Christian persecution” (AS IF Satan’s Mouthpiece cared for Christians, a group they absolutely detest) and there’s been a very, very predictable call for Christians to arm themselves.
Most of the ones calling for the picking up of weapons are the usual sight-walkers. They pretend to be Christians (even going so far as to wrench a few Bible verses out of context).
What does the Bible say about end times persecution, picking up weapons and the events which are to come?
Not surprisingly, God’s Word is VERY specific about what believers are to do in the end times. It speaks particularly on the picking up of weapons.
On the subject of arming themselves (as if that will save them).
“he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.”
Not only specific, but with a strong attached warning (“he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword”) AND with the additional note that remembering involves “the faith of the saints.”
As stated, the call to arms is coming from sight-walkers, who are the polar opposite of those who operate on faith.
They can make all of the arguments they want, in the end: they are offering very man-centered advice. It is contrary to the very specific commands of the Bible and it is meant to appeal to the flesh: fear, worry and doubt.
How then are true believers to overcome the slings and arrows and persecutions directed at them in the end times?
Again, God’s Word is VERY specific.
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
“And they loved not their lives unto the death.”
That leaves a LOT of sham Christians out of the mix–particularly Americans who call themselves ‘Christians.’
No mention of guns.
Who is the reader to believe: God’s Word?
Or the urgings of some apostate preacher in the lying Corporate Media?
The time is approaching when one will have to make a choice.
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
—2 Corinthians 4:3
“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 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.”
