We know Satan hates humans. He revealed this in the Garden of Eden.
Humans are an extension, product, of God’s love, mercy, and kindness. We’re created in His image and He has designed the future, eternity in His Kingdom, to be carried on through His children, the Saints, the seed of Abraham. Jesus Christ, fully God and fully man, is the first fruit of, and only entrance door into, this Kingdom (1 Corinthians 15:22-24; James 1:17-19).
There is an outright blatant assault on humanity happening, what appears to be, across the nations. I see scripture similarly describing what I see. Is there a connection between the two? Is God revealing the future of those that embrace this… what I call… culture of death? Do our actions and words, determined by whom we fear, indicate the chart of our course to eternal reward… or punishment (see What We Fear at Writings Page)?
Job 3:25 25 For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.
Isaiah 66 3 He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog’s neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine’s blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.4 I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not. 5 Hear the word of the Lord, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name’s sake, said, Let the Lord be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed.
With the current evil mean treatment of people, is God giving us a warning of the darkness approaching… a glimpse of what hell, the Lake of Fire, will be like? Is it not described as the second death… the absence of the presence of God? It’s Jesus Christ’s Light… His Life… His Glory… His Spirit… the Holy Spirit… that gives humans the breath of life… and because we’re sinners with a hard heart of stone, the need to be born-again with the Breath of Life giving us the heart of flesh of the New Covenant.
Put another way… the advancing corruption, theft, abuse, vileness, and murder we’re experiencing, do you want that to be part of your life, forever? The answer seems to reveal what road we’re on.
Proverbs 4 18 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.19 The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.
To go along with the heavy-handed soul-killing demands may seem like a loving and kind move… but is it? By accommodating their practices, are not the wicked emboldened to increase the level of their evil oppression?
Ezekiel 13 22 Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life:
Are we not experiencing this? It went from… only for two weeks to flatten the curve… to wide-spread genocide in violation of the Nuremberg Code (preventing forced, without consent, medical experimentation on humans) established because of the Nazi torture and murder of Jews… being able to speak up for one’s conscience… to being deemed criminal to do so.
Love for others is honest, respects them by asking and encouraging, for their good… while evil hatred for others manipulates them through deception and coercion wanting to destroy them (1 Corinthians 13:4-7; Galatians 5:19-23; Proverbs 10:11-12; James 3:14-18). Like what I read… a genuinely deadly pandemic doesn’t require 24/7 advertising to remind you it exists. Real pandemics don’t need marketing campaigns and endless propaganda… but psychological operations DO.
Is it not self-serving to destroy male and female created in the image of God to keep oneself supposedly, “safe”? Said another way… using aborted human fetal embryonic cells to develop these current “injections” (deceitfully called… vaccines) to attempt to extend one’s life.
The deeper we go into this tyranny, the more I realize… that we don’t get away with anything before God. It will become more difficult to… fake it. What’s in our heart and mind… our soul… our ability to discern… will be revealed by the choices we make.
If we’re willing, or give assent, to snuff-out the freedoms, dignity, and lives of others… we have just killed the voice, the defense, for ours. If we exterminate our children through abortion… our future is, also.
Is this the end-of-this-age? With the cold-heartedness towards humanity and the acceptance of… and that Jesus Christ is returning to intervene to save what’s left of mankind… I hope it is. Why? He said… nobody will survive… if He didn’t come back (Matthew 24:21-22).
As created in God’s image, I wasn’t designed to be comfortable with and desire darkness… the culture of death… destruction of the soul… to be ashamed of being human… to be ashamed of who God truly is. Receiving Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, with the Holy Spirit in my heart, I’m becoming more grieved at what I witness more-and-more.
Society is increasingly embracing, or tolerating, this culture of death. Abusing and murdering children and adults… binding and shackling our unalienable rights from God as created in His image through restrictive edicts and pseudo legislation from immoral and corrupt leaders… is a foreign country to me.
That which is not just a right, but essential to living as a human… the ability to choose to breathe, eat, embrace, love, marry, reproduce, work, accomplish, help others, and worship God… is non-negotiable to have quality of life described in God’s Word, the Holy Bible. The rampant fear spreading, and spewing out the blatant sinister destruction of the heart, mind, and soul, was not common-place in the small rural community I grew up in and lived as a young man. God didn’t create me to desire and thrive in this current unnaturally cheap world.
Has the use of mind-altering drugs (sorceries), which is increasing, widened the doorway to this culture of death? By sorceries, are not the nations deceived (Acts 8:9-11; Revelation 9:20-21; 18:23)?
[Sorceries… Strong’s G5331 – pharmakeia… the use or the administering of drugs… φαρμακεία pharmakeía, far-mak-i’-ah; from G5332; medication (“pharmacy”), i.e. (by extension) magic (literally or figuratively):—sorcery, witchcraft.]
For the faithful to Jesus Christ, does sunset, darkness, or death have to come before the sunrise… the dawn of a new Life (Matthew 16:24-26; John 12:23-25)? Can our problems become magnified, seeming hopeless, in depth-of-the-night? Do we experience hope and “new breath” when we have survived rising to feel the sun on our face in the morning of a new day (Ecclesiastes 11:6-8; Psalm 143:8-12)?
Do we not experience the cycle of death /birth… off with the old/on with the new… in our days, our years, and our life? Our choices throughout will determine if we find Life or Death at the end-of-our-road in this age.
What do I mean?
With His death at the Cross, Jesus Christ was placed in a dark tomb. After three days, He rose to a Life of Victory over death—at sunrise, His tomb was empty. The veil, the barrier, to access the presence of God in His Temple, the Holy of Holies, had been ripped open. Now, anyone who recognizes and desires for Jesus Christ to be their Redeemer and Savior can find access to God the Father in Heaven. Christ offers us His Life… to be made right, reconciled, with God, forever.
Is the sun setting on humanity right now? Is it accelerating? Does it not grow dark before Jesus Christ returns for the dawning of a new day of the age-to-come… the Millennium (see Turn Out the Lights at Writings Page)?
People are masked… their identities and voices… their personhood… are obscured and silenced—they’re becoming forgettable… a faceless mob… a number… a stat. Don’t thieves cover their faces operating in the dark-of-the-night… hoping you’ll not notice, or forget, them? Others agree… are we developing the next generation of psychopaths… people that only love themselves (2 Timothy 3:1-5)?
John 319 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
What does God say about the wicked…. those that reject Him as God, Savior, and Redeemer? Will they not be silenced and forgotten by those with Life living in the Light of the Glory of God in His Kingdom? Will their influence, voice, and ability to accomplish… their place among the Living… be destroyed, forever (Proverbs 10:27-29; 24:19-22; Psalm 37; 52:4-6; 68:1-2; 112:10; 73; Revelation 20:14-15)?. Are not those who reject Jesus Christ as their Savior and King assigned to an eternal dark… “muzzled or masked”… existence apart from God and His Saints, His Children—the Family of the God of Israel (Matthew 8:11-12; 25:25-30; Jude 1:12-13; 1 Samuel 2:9)?
Are not abortion murder, child trafficking slavery, trans-gender warping, homo-sexuality perversion, and adultery or fornication idolatry destruction… all attacks to obliterate the family of a husband, wife, and children—the hope of children’s children?
Is not the future of mankind… the promises to Abraham… the new covenant made with the House of Israel and the House of Judah… described by God as… I will multiply them… thou [Abraham] shalt be a father of many nations… I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore (Genesis 17:3-5; 22:15-18; 13:16; Romans 4:16-17)?
It takes children produced from a male husband/female wife marriage to accomplish… be fruitful and multiply. Is this not what Satan’s culture of death has its sights set on “nuking”?
Ezekiel 37 26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.
You do the math… that Bill Gates calls racist. But, he wants to depopulate the earth and dim the light (the sun)—he also brings us “the jab” that’s proven to seize up hearts with cardiac arrest and destroy fertility and reproduction—to erase human lives and their future generations. Again, you do the math… that Bill Gates, and his ilk, doesn’t want us to.
Then… they want to remove humans and food production from the land creating their “barren wilderness”. In my home state, they’re reintroducing wolves to their “wilderness” that were removed because of their destruction to humans and livestock.
(The most valuable food, the Word of God, is also being removed from the land. It’s being adulterated by the wolves in sheep’s clothing… the false teachers, preachers, and prophets… fake shepherds… and outlawed by the state—we’re fast becoming a Spiritual desert wasteland… dark wilderness. John 9:4-5)
Where does this sound familiar?
Doesn’t God describe the wicked, the wolves, as being “locked-down” in a wilderness… desert… hot dry land… parched place… in barrenness… with the beasts of prey (Jeremiah 50:11-14; 17:5-6; Isaiah 13:19-22; Psalm 107:33-34; 34:21; Isaiah 34)? They will not experience the pleasures, blessings, of life and Light… Life—their existence will be one of desolation… the pain and anguish of the darkness of death, forever (Revelation 14:11; Matthew 8:11-13; 22:12-14; 25:29-30).
Then… there’s the quest for immortality through artificial intelligence and saving one’s life with the various edicts that assault… male and female created in the image of God… the family. What’s the cost? Does the following apply to, or validate, what we’re experiencing?
Mark 8 35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it.
Are those that love the world… sin… their father, Satan… death… revealing their future by what they’re hustling today attempting to force on all mankind? Fear of man and death is their reality, for now… and, this road heads to a fear-ridden eternity.
Proverbs 29 25 The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe.
If we have the breath of life, we can choose the Life of Jesus Christ … there’s hope to be joined to all the living—if we’re dead, and rejected His Life, the door is closed… there’s none. It’s better to be “a lowly dog” that did… than “a prestigious lion”, that didn’t.
Ecclesiastes 9 3 This is an evil among all things that are done under the sun, that there is one event unto all: yea, also the heart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live, and after that they go to the dead.4 For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion.5 For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.
There’s only one cure for this fear of the second eternal death and to save one’s life… to have a place among all the living—it’s available to anyone who wants it… but, it won’t be forever!
1 John 4:17-19 17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.19 We love him, because he first loved us.
Take advantage of it while you still have your… breath of life from God!!
Abide with me, fast falls the eventide,
The darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide!
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, O abide with me.
Swift to its close ebbs out life’s little day,
Earth’s joys grow dim, its glories pass away;
Change and decay in all around I see:
O Thou who changest not, abide with me.
I need Thy presence ev’ry passing hour;
What but Thy grace can foil the tempter’s pow’r?
Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, O abide with me.
I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless;
Ills have no weight and tears no bitterness.
Where is death’s sting? Where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still, if Thou abide with me.
Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes;
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies;
Heav’n’s morning breaks and earth’s vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.
