The End Times Churches: Dens of Deception

The End Times Churches

The Apostate Church has been chugging along for quite some time now.

Long enough so that what was once evil is now proclaimed to be good–and what was good is now determined to be evil.

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! “
–Isaiah 5:20

Long enough, in fact, so that heresies and blasphemies permeate the church to such a degree that few now pay them much attention.

Long enough so that the scandalous doctrines that were introduced and made popular in the mega-churches ten years ago have now seeped into the capillaries of the smaller, visible churches.

Things will get worse–much worse–but for now, many of the few remaining watchmen are being thrown off the walls by those they watch over.

These horribly-deceptive, counterfeit churches are made possible by the many who show up for an hour, throw some money into the collection and join in with lip service to God Almighty and His Son, Jesus Christ.

Jesus described what would happen to these people who would be sitting in the counterfeit churches: the end times Church of the Tares.

“Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.”
–Matthew 13:30

…and God will not judge according to how often one smiles or how “nice” other people insist one is.

The Bible describes the people who populate the end times churches.

It is not very complimentary.

What does the Bible say about those who inhabit the end times churches?

Grievous wolves, ravening wolves, wolves in sheep’s clothing, seducers, evil men, false prophets, false Christs, ungodly men, “men…speaking perverse things,” false teachers, “them which cause division and offences contrary to doctrine…by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple,” false apostles, deceitful workers, “ministers of Satan” who present themselves as “ministers of righteousness,” ear-tickling false teachers: this is who the Bible warns will be in the churches.
End Times Churches: Broken Beyond Repair

Jesus questioned if He would “find faith on the earth” when He returned.

It was not a rhetorical question.

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

The end times churches are dens of deception.

IF they were REAL Christian churches, they would not be on street corners in every village, town and city in America.

IS the reader one of the many who have placed their faith for eternity in a building we call “the churches“?

DOES the reader have a strong attachment to the people and leaders who frequent such a building, as well as the events which take place there–instead of God’s Word?

WHAT does the reader believe Jesus was referring to when He asked if He would “find faith on the earth” when He returned?

THOUGH time grows short, there is still yet a little time left to change direction (repent) and call upon the name of the LORD.

Do not wait until it is too late.

Is your calling and election sure?

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation

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 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
