The Daily Word of Righteousness

Kept by the Power of God, continued

And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. (Matthew 24:12)

In some instances the deadliest condition of all will be the ready availability of sin and comfortable living. The opportunity to live comfortably in immorality has the potential to destroy many saints who might have stood fast in suffering. Remember, Christ has promised to guard us from the hour of temptation no matter what form that temptation may take.

The saints need to be alerted concerning the newly developed Internet communication system. Many pastors and believers will be sucked into Satan's web because of the lust that will be presented to them on the Internet, using interactive and virtual reality technologies. Pornography is a powerful devil in the world of today and it leads to other destructive practices.

Are our hearts overcharged today with dissipation, drunkenness, and the cares of the present life? Or are we keeping the Lord's Word with the utmost diligence, the utmost patience and endurance?

In some cases the believers are looking for a monster to come forth from the sea having the number 666 stamped on him. What is not realized is that the spirit of Antichrist has been in the world since the days of the Apostles, and many Christian people already are thinking and acting as Antichrist desires they think and act.

The meaning of 666 is man making himself a God. This spirit is in the world now. Many believers in Christ already are caught up in the materialism and humanism so important to the antichrist system and so destructive of our soul's welfare.

Antichrist is here now, and we have been caught by him because we neither pray fervently nor guard the Word of Christ with patience. Therefore Christ is not guarding us from the present hour of temptation. He is not guarding us because we are not guarding the Word of His patience.

During the next few months and years many Christian people will be brought into painful situations or intense moral seduction in which they will be forced to choose between Christ and Antichrist, between the Kingdom of God and Babylon.

Which way are you leaning now?

Jesus loves you with an exceedingly fervent love. He is offering to you His Divine power and glory. Through Him you will be able to escape all of the enticements of the world and stand triumphantly in the Presence of God and of the Lamb.

To insure your spiritual protection you must attend to His Word with great concern and self-control. If you do not, the Lord Jesus may send trouble your way in order to move you to a position of spiritual strength and safety.

The promise of protection is not to the careless but to the watchful.

We are not to fear physical suffering. The worst men can do is to kill our body. Our goal is to enter eternal life in the Presence of God and it is to this haven that Jesus is guarding us and guiding us.

If we will choose to guard Jesus' Word with great diligence He will choose to guard us with great diligence. Through His watchful care we will be enabled to escape all these things that are coming to pass on the earth. We will not lose our soul but we will believe to the saving of our soul.

I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. (John 17:15) (from Kingdom Concepts)
