The Daily Word of Righteousness

Things To Come, #15

And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. (Revelation 13:12)

There is coming an alliance between the deceived believers and the man-centered philosophies of the West.

We have seen brief examples of this as Charismatic leaders have gone to the heads of nations to persuade them to be "born again."

As far as we can tell, the Charismatic leaders do not reason with the political leaders, as did the Apostle Paul, of "righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come."

And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee. (Acts 24:25)

Rather, they tell the leaders if they will just "accept Christ" they can speak in tongues, be a Christian, and have the world and God too.

Deluded Christians will support the libertarian-democratic form of government because it gives them "freedom of religion."

Christ never commissioned us to seek freedom of religion. He charged us to teach His commandments to all nations.

It is God's will that the Church provide the nations with the eternal moral law of God, not that the nations merely "permit" the Church to function without persecution.

It is the role of the Church to inform the governments of God's laws. It is the role of government to protect those who obey God's laws and to punish those who disobey God's law.

The government that does not punish evildoers (evildoers as defined by the Scriptures) is of no use and eventually will be removed by the Lord.

As we understand the Scriptures, deceived Christians (the False Prophet) will support libertarian-democratic government until all the world is seduced into the camp of Antichrist.

Antichrist will succeed in deluding Christians until they are persuaded he is helping them with the Gospel. He will subsidize the churches and invite prominent clergymen into positions of influence.

The seduced believers will support libertarian-democratic government with signs and wonders.

And he doeth great wonders, so he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, (Revelation 13:13)


For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. (Matthew 24:24)

At first the deceived Christian leaders may attempt to placate the remnant of true saints, seeming to agree with them and sympathizing with their cry for holiness.

But when it becomes evident that the remnant will never compromise with a secular government, the deluded leaders of the churches will drive the true saints from society, declaring they are fanatics, misfits, ignorant—the destroyers of the bright new civilization that is coming into view.

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. (Revelation 13:15)

The seduction of Christians into the supernatural practices of imaging and creating reality by thinking and speaking what the individual desires, is extremely serious. It is paving the way for the giving of spiritual life to libertarian, humanistic government.

To be continued.
