“having their conscience seared with a hot iron”

1st Timothy 4:2 

.

“The god of this world”, Satan, has used the television, Internet, radio, and the printed page, in such a way, as to normalize sin in the hearts and minds of the public as well as those Christians who allow ourselves to watch and listen to these various media.

.

Yes, as we watch various sins being committed over and over again, day-after-day, week-after-week, etc…, sin loses its sting, and our consciences (and our children’s consciences) become defiled and blunted, so that sin no longer appears so evil.

.

Listen…“Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.” 1st Corinthians 15:33 

.

This above verse is extremely important to our spiritual well-being!

.

And these inventions and their ability to bombard us with sin, sin, sin, is the essence of the “Image of the Beast”, and how it becomes transplanted into our hearts and minds: it is the image and character of Satan, which becomes indelibly inscribed upon the tables of our hearts!

THE AGE OF IMAGES

.

Without a doubt, we live in the age of images!

.

.

Oh yes, there has always been images. But compared to this present industrial/technical super-society, the images of centuries past have been relatively https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:James_Bond_Themed_Prop_Hire.jpgfew and far between!

THE DAY OF THE LORD

.

2Pe 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
2Pe 3:11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
2Pe 3:12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
2Pe 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

“LOVE NOT THE WORLD!”

(read 1st John 2:15-17)

.

God, being the Searcher of Hearts, sees how much we inherently love this present, selfish world. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Munch_Det_Syke_Barn_1896.jpg

.

And so, He must drive out our trust and our love for this evil world of sin, with all its earthy pleasures and proud, ambitious pursuits…“If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him (or her).” (read 1st John 2:15-17).

.

Thus, God begins a work in many souls, to drive out that innate earthly love. This is why God allows suffering, sickness, and many sorrows to come upon us, even from birth to the grave.

.

And while it grieves the Lord greatly, to behold suffering, He knows that in the end, these things will purify our hearts, even as precious gold is purified!

“LOVE NOT THE WORLD!”

But truth-be-told, God, being the Searcher of Hearts, sees how much we inherently love this present, selfish world.

Thus, God begins a work in many souls, to root out that innate earthly love. This is one reason why God allowing all this growing hatred and intolerance which we are now seeing around the world.

.

And we should not be surprised to see things go completely evil in the coming days.

.

And while it grieves the Lord greatly, to behold suffering, He knows that in the end, these things will purify our hearts, even as precious gold is purified!

“SCIENCE, FALSELY SO-CALLED”

1st Timothy 6:20

.

Unfortunately for the science community, their credibility has been greatly diminished in those areas in which they contradict the Bible!

.

And why have they lost their credibility in these contradicting areas?

.

Simple. It has become apparent to true Bible-believers that the so-called Theory of Evolution is a bad hoax, being thrust upon this unbelieving world by misguided professors of this erroneous so-called science.

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Sterkfontein_Piltdown_man2.jpgBeside all the past frauds perpetrated in the name of Evolution, the ever-mounting evidence against this faulty theory only further confirms the validity and superiority of Scripture.

.

And so, because evolutionary science is so blatantly wrong concerning the origin of man, it then casts a dark shadow over the other false notions: notions such as homosexuality and mental illness being the result of abhorrent genes in certain humans.

.

The bottom line is, whenever humans attempt to discredit the Bible by such false sciences as these three, the Bible ultimately and eventually wins out every time. Oh yes, scientists have made many conclusions over the past decades. But the fact is, there has never been the discovery of any hard evidence which, by itself, contradicts the Bible account! Only man’s opinions on these discoveries disagree with the Bible. And only their faulty conclusions dispute God’s infallible Word!

“Judge not, that ye be not judged.

.

Yes, the day has arrived in which those of us who looked down our noses at others might just wake up to discover that “I” am now the one begging on the street-corner or “I” am now the drunkard lying in the gutter, etc….

“And he opened the bottomless pit…And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.”

Revelation 9:2 & Matthew 24:12

.

Yes, when the persecution of God’s faithful remnant ceased after the Dark Ages, Satan instead began to embrace the Church, causing us to lay down our spiritual armor and “join in the fun with our newly-acquired ‘friend’, the world”!

.

http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bestand:Cannibalism_1571.PNG

But these “kisses of an enemy” were merely a deceitful trap to render God’s Church ineffectual by our earthly-minded pursuit of the things of this seemingly friendly world. (see Proverbs 27:6)

.

And so, O trembling child of faith, don’t be surprised when the world just keeps getting worse and worse!

.

Sin is a bottomless pit!

.

And, it appears that we are soon going to finally witness sin’s true depths, just prior to Christ’s Return, when He rescues us from all this soon-coming madness!

SATAN’S COUNTERFEIT ‘LOVE’

.

And the god of this world, Satan, is constantly bombarding young people’s minds with overwhelming thoughts and lusts, so that they imagine themselves to be hopelessly lost in love with one-another!

.

But this kind of “love” is not genuine, and can disappear just as quickly as it began!

.

And the god of this world, Satan, is constantly bombarding people’s minds with overwhelming thoughts and lusts, so that they imagine themselves to be a so-called, “homosexual”!

.

But this is merely “the prince of the power of the air”, that spirit now working upon human minds to deceive and to enslave them in this, as well as countless other lusts!

VILLAINS AND HEROES

.

Some decades ago, a publicly disgraced and very unpopular world statesman, being interviewed, made the statement that “some leaders are born to be villains while others are destined to be heroes in the public’s eyes”.

.

Certainly “the god of this world” has turned politics into a high-pitched drama, using various political figures as players, casting them as either “villains” or “heroes”.

.

And to what ends does this master-deceiver hope to achieve by such sophistry?

.

Well, by simply glancing at the ongoing daily political wars, it’s not hard to understand that Satan is working behind the scenes, pulling the strings in such a manner, as to create great political intrigue, thus turning politics into a current-day “spectator sport”. Millions have now become daily devotees to various radio and television talk shows, waiting to hear each new day’s developments.

.

And this ongoing drama has its “good guys” and “bad guys”, thus ratcheting up either the favor or disdain for these “actors”.

.

Thus, the Enemy of Souls makes gains on two fronts: via the modern media, he has now created a new time-consuming pastime, which intrigues and ensnares multitudes of viewers; and this new snare only ratchets up the anger and rage in the hearts of viewers who willingly witness all the dirty-dealing injustices constantly being committed.

.

.

Rev 9:5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.
Rev 9:6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
