“But mark this:  There will be terrible times in the last days.  2) People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,  3) without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,  4) treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God … ” .. 2 Timothy 3:1-4 (NIV) …

Wow! .. Is this today’s world or what?! .. As most of you know, I scan national & international news headlines on a daily basis looking specifically for any & all stories that I believe relate directly to Bible prophecy. .. I’ve been doing this now for about the last 10 years. .. When I first ‘stumbled’ upon this mission, it certainly was an eye-opener back then .. but now .. it is nearly mind-boggling to observe just how rapidly all the signs of God’s prophets are coming to their conclusion. .. Every day now I’m overwhelmed by the immediacy of the culmination of the times we are living in. .. It’s it all coming together, & exactly as the Bible predicted,  but few are paying any attention to it! ..

My first reaction is to shout out from the rooftops & plead with anyone who will listen … “Wake up, you idiots!” .. but, of course, this is NOT how you win friends & influence people. .. So .. I will just have to continue on my current path & pray that at least a few will ‘tune in’ to what is about to befall their world. …

Concerning the unfolding prophetic landscape, the opening passage from 2 Timothy pretty much sizes up today’s world to a tee. .. The descriptions used by Paul to describe last-day conditions are seen every moment now in today’s news stories .. division, hatred, depression, suicides, public & family shootings, political corruption, a complete moral breakdown … the list goes on & on ……

So why? .. How could all this craziness come upon the world with such force in such a short time? .. Now I know that society has NEVER been perfect, but this? .. The reason is simple. .. The ‘real God’ has been all but removed from the world, & what remains is coming under increasing attack by the moment! .. Once again, the opening passage of scripture declares the ultimate results of this tragic , but prophesied, event.

Look at just these examples as proof of what I’m saying. .. The following word examples depict the ‘new’ language the world is focusing on .. diversity, inclusion, eclecticism, etc .. words that simply give any & all ways a person chooses to live credibility. .. In my commentary from May 12th, I specifically took on the term ‘eclecticism’ & how this modern trend is changing the thought processes of the millennial generation… But sadly, it’s not just exclusively for our younger generation .. it’s now spreading across the entire social landscape! ..

Let me sum it up this way … the widely developed & believed ideology that now dominates education, politics, philosophy, & entertainment is that ‘right & wrong evolve? . And what is the basic atheist belief? .. ‘If there is no God, what ever seems reasonable to each of us is right.’ … And tragically, even the methods of today’s Church preachings are being based more & more upon this ‘eclectic’ mindset – choosing a biblical topic & picking out ONLY specific texts so as not to offend the current popular trends of society. .. In other words, it’s what I call ‘avoidance’ preaching. ..

To sum this thought up, true Christian ideology believes that morality, for instance, is God’s definition of what is right & wrong. .. In contrast, the evolutionary, or ‘eclectic’ view believes that morality is actually an ‘invention’ of the human mind. .. Therefore, logically, the human mind can alter the definition of right & wrong at will, because the human mind is the ultimate authority that decided it all in the first place. .. Hence, the human values & morality once believed & held by much of society has all but been cast to the wind. .. The result is moral lawlessness .. and it will continue to escalate until …….

In the title of today’s commentary, I mentioned ‘Babylon’ .. why? .. because the world is heading directly back to its methods. .. The Babylonians were a culture that made up gods to worship that fit into there desired life choices. .. I mean they had a god for just about everything! .. If you wanted it, make up a god to pray to & most likely you would get what you desired. .. Is it any different today? .. People for the most part have decided that ‘the God of old’ just has too many rules that are hard to follow .. so .. they go & either ‘adjust’ the old one, or find new ones! … Convenient yes .. but ultimately fatal ………

For those of us who are still hanging on the One & Only true God, it is, & will continue to get more difficult as we draw ever closer. .. So because we’ve become such a minority (the remnant), what is the best path to take in these increasingly difficult days? .. I refer you to the teachings of Ephesians 6:10-18 where we are told to “Put on the armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. (vs 11) ..”Put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.” (vs 13) .. “Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waste, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.  In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith , with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.  Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.  And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.  With this in mind, be alert and always keep praying for all the saints.”  (vs’s 14-18).

I just love how the Bible lays it out so clearly. .. Why on earth does the world want to alter such a clear & beautiful message? .. Just remember, we WILL be victorious in the long run. .. No, we won’t be popular & in high demand from the masses, but will ultimately claim the promised eternal victory God has promised for His faithful & loyal servants. .. Hallelujah! ..

Once again, thanks for allowing to ‘go off.’ .. It’s all so obvious as to what & why the world is so rapidly careening to it’s ultimate destruction. .. I just wish, & will pray, that more & more will ‘see’ the truth before it’s too late. .. 2 Peter 3:9 tells us .. “The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise (His coming), as some understand slowness.  He is patient with you, NOT WANTING ANYONE TO PERISH, but everyone to come to repentance.” (emphasis mine) … He’s waiting for each of you, your loved ones .. all who need to ‘look up’ & see the truth. .. What a wonderful, and patient God we serve! …

Love you all, and know that I am praying for you … and God knows exactly who you are ….

Until next time,

Red
