Hello, and welcome to Faith is Hope,
Satan’s government. I think that we can all agree that the entire world has gone to hell. And it’s no surprise since the world is under the influence of Satan. But, this current administration and government have shown themselves to be the children of Satan. It’s not a democrat or republican thing. It’s the beliefs, the agenda and ideology that is of satan. Our government lies, cheats, steals, deceives, and corrupts the hearts and minds of the very people that it claims to represent. We elect people to represent us, to speak for us, but do they? Does a government that doesn’t support the sanctity of life represent your beliefs? Does a government that persecutes and condemns God, Jesus, religious beliefs, and an individual’s faith, speak for you?
Satan’s government deals death and destruction to the world. It doesn’t matter if it’s the Russian government, the Chinese government, or the American government. If it isn’t following the laws, ordinances, and statutes that God gave Moses then it is not a government of God. I know, I know, Paul said; “ Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.” (Romans 13:1)
But didn’t Meshach, Shadrach, and Abednego disobey Nebuchadnezzar who was King at the time? When the high priest told Peter and the apostles that they were not to teach in the name of Jesus, Peter told them “We must obey God rather than men.” You can find the exact quote in Acts 5:29, I paraphrased it. You see we are told to submit ourselves to the governing authorities, up to the point that they stop governing by God’s laws, and start governing by the world’s laws; satan’s laws.
The Mosaic laws say that murder is a crime and a sin. God says that too. But the world says if you change the name to abortion it’s not a crime or a sin. Satan says that too. You see, that’s the lie. That’s the deception that the world just accepts. But when you don’t stand up for what is true, good, and righteous then you’re kneeling at the altar of Baal (Satan).
Look around you. Look at the people in your life. How many are willing to be attacked for what God said, that murder is a sin? And abortion is the taking of a life, without cause, due process, or the right to appeal. Are you willing to be canceled by your family and friends for condemning homosexuality and sexual perversions as sinful? Are you willing to be hunted and persecuted by extremists for admitting your faith in Jesus Christ? You see, that’s what satan’s government does. It attacks, it cancels, it hunts and persecutes all who stand in defiance, because when you stand with Jesus Christ, you are the enemy of the world, of satan.
I don’t think that God, Jesus, or any of his disciples would ask that we overthrow or tear down what God has created. Even when satan has corrupted it. We can’t just accept sin or sinful actions just because we’re afraid of what someone might say or do. Jesus said; “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.’ (Matthew 10:28). Sometimes our lives here on earth last only a moment, sometimes a hundred years or more. But eternity is such a long time to spend in hell.
I’m not telling anyone to break the law. I’m not suggesting anyone commit acts of violence in any shape or form. That’s not the answer. I think the answer to everything that’s being forced upon us comes from the first lady. Nancy Reagan; “Just say no.” When someone tells you to do something that you know is wrong; just say no. If someone goes against your faith; just say no.
The evil influence of satan has been present since Adam and Eve. But it is growing greater than ever before. It’s spreading like a wildfire, we can’t put it out. So what do we do? You prepare, and you plan. If you live in an area that can be hit by tornados you have the plan to get to a safe space. You prepare food, water, blankets, and medical supplies for as much as a week. Because no one knows if it will hit, how bad it will be, or how long you’re going to be without services.
So how do you plan and prepare for what satan’s government is going to do? How do you plan and prepare for that time of great and terrible tribulation? Well, the first thing is don’t be caught off guard. Don’t be surprised. I’m not here to debate the different tribulation theories, okay? Everyone is guessing, and they all have their reasons for the choice they make. I only go by what is written in the bible. I don’t add or subtract words. I don’t change the meanings of words and I don’t invent words. If Paul says that the son of perdition, the lawless one must come before Christ’s return. Then that’s exactly what it means.
So how do you plan for all this? Well God put that plan together a long long time ago. How do you prepare for what’s coming? Read the bible for yourself. Don’t take someone’s word for what’s going to happen or when. Not even mine. Find out for yourself. Don’t be afraid to ask questions or make mistakes. That’s how we learn. I love to discuss the bible. I know next to nothing about the bible, so any time I have a chance to talk with people, to sit down and study, I’m there. That’s how we should all be. Hungry for the meal that God has placed before us.
