TOTAL CONFUSION ON RELIGIOUS, MORAL AND GENDER ISSUES

Gen Z’s ‘lack of confidence’ and ‘confusion’ over religious, moral issues presents a major challenge.

A major obstacle in reaching Generation Z, the rising generation that is entering college, is the “confusion” and “lack of confidence” on moral and religious issues, according to an apologist who specialises in student outreach.

Jonathan Morrow, director of Cultural Engagement and Immersion at Impact 360 Institute, is an expert in training high school and college students in Christian apologetics and worldview.

The world that they’ve inherited has really essentially told them, ‘Hey, real truth doesn’t exist on questions of morality and spirituality.’ And so they don’t want to be judgemental. They don’t want to impose on anybody. And they’ve been raised as a generation that’s kind of been taught to believe that how I feel determines what’s real. And that is kind of a default.”

Morrow noted that even when surveying “a group of Christians, who they knew everybody in the room were Christians — this focus group — they almost relativised statements as soon as it came out of their mouth. It’s like, ‘But that’s just, you know, my opinion. That’s just what I believe.’”

Also, to demonstrate the extent of the confusion, we now have a coalition of radical feminists, lesbians, and politically conservative women are petitioning the government to scrap“gender identity” in federal civil rights legislation that’s being considered in Congress. Both the radical feminist organisation Women’s Liberation Front, a left-wing radical feminist organisation, and the Hands Across the Aisle Coalition, a bipartisan group of women, together resisting transgender activism and ideology, despite profound differences on other issues, issued statements denouncing the Equality Act as a “full-frontal assault” on women and girls. The bill, which was introduced Wednesday, has the support of 161 major corporations.

Rejection of God, His Word and His Values particularly in academia is producing a generation that is in total confusion on religious, moral and gender issues. With much of the church compromising with the world on gay marriage and transgender issues the confusion is complete and a sure “end times” sign.

 

“END TIMES” – TOTAL REJECTION OF GOD’S CREATED ORDER

I am otherworldly’: Ex-transgender man, 33, who now identifies as an ‘agender ALIEN’ reveals they have had their nipples and eyebrows REMOVED to look ‘less human’

Extraterrestrial: The 33-year-old has gone as far as having surgery to remove their nipples in order to make them appear 'less human' 

  • Jareth Nebula was born a woman but then transitioned to a man when they were 29-years-old 
  • The Washington-native, who works as a barber’s shop receptionist, said after transitioning into a man, they still didn’t feel right  
  • The 33-year-old said they didn’t ‘feel comfortable’ as either gender
  • Therefore, when Jareth learned about the term agender – which translates to without gender – they applied this to themselves
  • Jareth decided to refer to themselves as an agender alien, and now sports a totally new alien-like look 
  • In order to appear ‘less human’, Jareth has had their nipples removed, and sports a number of facial piercings and wears alien-like makeup looks   
  • Jareth is agender, and prefers to be referred to with the pronoun ‘they’ 

    According to the Mirror, Jareth, who identifies as agender – which translates to ‘without gender’ – and prefers to be referred to with the pronoun they, named himself after the character played by David Bowie in the 1986 musical fantasy Labyrinth.

    Unlike the term gender-fluid – which refers to a person’s whose gender identity is not fixed, or a person who feel they are a mix of both genders – agender typically refers to being gender-less, without a gender, or gender neutral.

    Explaining their transition journey, Jareth said: ‘After coming out as transgender and believing I had finally found myself, I realised I was wrong – I wasn’t male or female, or even human.

    ‘I don’t think or feel like humans. I can’t really explain it to others – I’m simply otherworldly.

    ‘I didn’t feel comfortable as either gender or even anything in between. I know I’m stuck in a human form and that’s how I’m perceived by others – but to me, I’m an alien with no gender,’ he added.

    ‘I thought being a trans man would solve all of my issues and inner battles with finding out who I was, but I wasn’t as happy as I expected to be,’ they said.

    ‘I felt like I was trying to fit into someone else’s box. I didn’t want to be constrained – that’s when I discovered what agender was.

    ‘I’d always been obsessed with aliens, too, and what it means to be extraterrestrial, so the idea of being an agender alien fit perfectly as an identity for me,’ they added.

    ‘People treat me like a freak because I’m an alien, but it’s a completely valid thing to call yourself,’ Jareth explained.

    ‘Who is anyone to tell you who you can or can’t be? If someone wants to identify as anything, even an animal, let them.  

    ‘I feel sorry for people who attack me online. I think they lack empathy and just want to target me, so I deal with it pretty well by brushing it off.

    Jareth added: I’m happy with who I am and will continue to become more alien-like every day.’ “everyone did what was right in his own eyes” Judges 21:25

OBLIVIOUS TO IMPENDING JUDGEMENT

Long-running parenting magazine Parents has featured fitness guru Shaun T. and his husband Scott Blokker, along with their one-year-old twins, on its February cover.

It’s believed to be the first time a gay couple has appeared on the magazine’s cover in its 92-year history. Moreover, a magazine of this size would not take this move unless it thought it good for business. It is clearly a further sign we are in the “end times” when God’s commandments are being abandoned and the Bible says, “they will call evil good and good evil”.

“I’ve received two great pieces of advice,” Shaun T, who is known for his at-home workout videos, reveals in the accompanying interview.

“Scott’s dad told me, ‘You’re not coming into the babies’ world. They’re coming into yours,’ and that made me eager to show them the life we live.” A life without a female influence. Shaun identifies himself as the wife and therefore I assume the mother of the two boys in this relationship.

He continued: “The second was from my grandfather, who was married to my grandmother for 56 years. He said, ‘Never go to bed angry,’ and we don’t. The connectedness you feel at the end of the day is the driving force for how you wake up the next day, so every night we fall asleep holding hands.”

The above is great advice from Shaun if it was male and female as it was with his grandmother and grandfather, and as God ordained, but it isn’t, God calls male with male sinful and the consequences cannot be good for the two men nor the children.

While many took to social media to praise “Parents” publication for becoming more inclusive, fortunately the conservative organisation One Million Moms criticised the move.

Parents is using its magazine as a platform to promote the pro-homosexual lifestyle,” the group wrote.

“Even if families do not personally subscribe to the publication, they should be warned that it could be displayed in waiting rooms of dentist and doctor offices, where children could easily be subjected to the glorification of same-sex parents.”

The group continued: “Many families subscribe to Parents and should be aware of the upcoming change of content in this magazine. After all, most conservative and Christian families will disagree morally with the magazine’s decision, and subsequently, will not want to support its content.”

UN PASSES 6 ANTI ISRAEL RESOLUTIONS IN ONE DAY

The U.N. passed six resolutions against Israel on Friday, preserving its reputation of being obsessed with attacking the Jewish State and rejecting Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem. The Bible reveals that at the “end times’ this small (geography) country would be the centre of hostility, surrounded by nations intent on its destruction. In the natural it makes no sense, but in the spiritual it makes complete sense. Satan knows Scripture. Jesus said He will return to rule and reign from Jerusalem. Satan is intent on doing his utmost to stop that from happening. 

UN passes 6 anti-Israel resolutions in one day, rejects Jewish ties to Jerusalem

As Muslim countries dominate the UN it is conceivable that the Antichrist, who I believe will be the Muslim Mahdi will be elected the Secretary General of the UN. It is no coincidence that most of the Middle East Muslim nations believe the return of their Messiah – Mahdi is imminent. The table below is revealing.

It is useful now, to look at Daniel’s revelation of the Kingdoms that will rule during the “end times” prior to Jesus return which will give us a clue to the Antichrist identity.

  • Which Kingdoms best fit the dream Nebuchadnezzar, King of the Neo-Babylonian Empire, had that Daniel 2 revealed were four Empires that would succeed the Neo Babylonian Empire.
  • Daniel reveals Medo-Persia and Greek Empires would succeed Nebuchadnezzar but he does not reveal the fourth Empire. However, the description given that the fourth Empire would completely crush the former territories of the previous three Empires, reveals the identity of the only Empire to accomplish this feat. It is an Islamic Caliphate – The Ottoman Empire.
  • The Final Empire is a revived but divided fourth Empire – an Islamic Caliphate which the Antichrist will rule, partially overcoming the Sunni/Shia divide

The six anti Israel resolutions passed in one day.

The first, titled “The Syrian Golan,” passed with 100 votes in favour, 12 against and 62 abstentions. For a second consecutive year, the United Kingdom broke with the European Union to vote against it, joining the United States, Israel, Canada, Australia, Kiribati, Marshall Islands and a few others.

The second, titled “Jerusalem,” was adopted with 148 votes in favour, 11 against and 14 abstentions, rejects Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem. Israel and the United States were joined by Canada, Australia, Guatemala and six others to vote against.

The third, titled “Division for Palestinian Rights of the Secretariat,” which appropriates U.N. funds for anti-Israel purposes, passed with 96 votes in favour, 13 against and 64 abstentions. The United States, Israel, Australia Canada, Moldova, Hungary, Honduras, Guatemala and others voted against it.

The fourth, “Special information programme on the question of Palestine of the Department of Public Information of the Secretariat,” was adopted with 152 votes in favour, eight against and 14 abstentions. The United States, Israel, Canada, Australia, Guatemala and a few others voted against the resolution. “The program eschews a balanced approach by overtly choosing the Palestinian over Israeli narrative, ignoring terrorism against Israeli men, women and children, and other daily realities of Israeli life,” stated U.N. Watch.

The fifth, “Peaceful settlement of the question of Palestine,” passed 156 votes in favour, eight against and 12 abstentions. The United States, Israel Canada, Australia and four others voted against the measure, which solely blames Israel for no peace in the area.

The sixth resolution, “Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People,” was adopted 100 votes in favour, 12 against and 62 abstentions. The United States, Israel, Australia, Canada and Hungary joined several other countries to vote against the resolution. This committee invited Temple University professor Marc Lamont Hill to speak on Wednesday, where he advocated for “a Free Palestine From the River to the Sea,” in addition to making other anti-Israel comments.

I am encouraged that Australia was amongst the nations that voted against these resolutions. Where does your nation stand in this regard? Will it be a sheep or goat nation? Only sheep nations get to continue on into the Millennium, so if yours voted for these resolutions, I would be on my knees in prayer interceding for a turn around. Mind you, I am on my knees for Australia, as our future is in the balance.

ANTICHRIST AND DECEPTION

Another important teaching from Nelson Walters on the “end times” Most Christians and prophecy teachers focus on the physical implications of the Great Tribulation. Jesus and Paul focused primarily on the spiritual implications – especially on the deception of Antichrist which will lead to the falling away. In this video learn how Matt. 24, the Parable of the Ten Virgins, and 2 Thess. 2 are all interrelated and give important application for the church today.

FRANCIS CHAN: MORE ON REVELATION

Everyday should be more exciting than the one before. God is a creator and we are made in His image, expect something new today, says Francis Chan

Francis Chan recommends that every Christian take some time to read through Revelation with fresh eyes. He did, and it changed his perception of the book. In this teaching at Azusa Pacific University, Chan talks about Jesus’ dire warnings to the early church and why we need to take the end times seriously.

Another great sermon from Francis on the end times. Make sure you have the time to see it through and to contemplate what it means for you.

FALSE PROPHET & ONE WORLD RELIGION

Pope Francis Says All Major Religions Are ‘Meeting God In Different Ways’

One World Religion - Apostleship Of Prayer

A new video has just been released in which Pope Francis very clearly expresses his belief that all of the major religions are different paths to the same God. He says that while people from various global faiths may be “seeking God or meeting God in different ways” that it is important to keep in mind that “we are all children of God”. This is the most recent example that shows that the Pope has completely abandoned any notion that a relationship with God is available only through Jesus Christ. In fact, he has warned that seeking a personal relationship with God is dangerous.

As he has done throughout his papacy, he continues to lay the groundwork for the coming one world religion, and yet hardly anyone seems upset by this.

The Pope’s first-ever video message on his monthly prayer intentions was released Tuesday, highlighting the importance of inter-religious dialogue and the beliefs different faith traditions hold in common, such as the figure of God and love. Pope Francis said in his message, released Jan. 6, the feast of the Epiphany:

Many think differently, feel differently, seeking God or meeting God in different ways. In this crowd, in this range of religions, there is only one certainty that we have for all: we are all children of God,”

TRANSHUMANISM – WICKEDNESS ABOUNDS

If you start looking into this movement, you will quickly discover that the word “transhuman” literally means “beyond human”. Transhumanists believe that it is time for humanity to take control of our own evolution. By editing our DNA and merging with technology, they believe that “post-humans” can become far superior to the humans of today.

The aims of the transhumanist movement are summed up by Mark O’Connell in his book To Be a Machinewhich last week won the Wellcome Book prize. “It is their belief that we can and should eradicate ageing as a cause of death; that we can and should use technology to augment our bodies and our minds; that we can and should merge with machines, remaking ourselves, finally, in the image of our own higher ideals.”

We are fast approaching the wickedness of the days of Noah which brought God’s catastrophic judgement. Jesus said in the “last days” before His second coming it would be like the days of Noah.

In the past, many authors had raised the possibility of tyrannical governments forcibly micro-chipping their own populations someday (Revelation 13:16-17 Mark of the Beast), but what if most of humanity actually embraces this new technology enthusiastically? Today, thousands of people in Sweden are eagerly having microchips inserted into their own hands, and it is rapidly becoming a natural part of society. Even in the United States, at one time there was great resistance to the idea of microchipping our pets, but now it is almost universally accepted. Personal microchips are being promoted as a way to make routine tasks faster, easier and more convenient, and Swedish “biohackers” are quite thrilled to be on the cutting edge of this new trend… It will be easy for governments to make  a microchip inserted in the right hand compulsory.

The idea of technologically enhancing our bodies is not new. But the extent to which transhumanists take the concept is. In future, we might use implants to augment our senses so we can detect infrared or ultraviolet radiation directly or boost our cognitive processes by connecting ourselves to memory chips. Ultimately, by merging man and machine, science will produce humans who have vastly increased intelligence, strength, and lifespans; a near embodiment of gods.

SIGNS TO WATCH FOR, PRIOR TO JESUS RETURN

Jesus does not teach a sign-less, imminent rapture. There are key discernible events/signs that must happen before Jesus returns for his church.

Jesus gave us due warning with signs/events that will occur prior to His return: 

  1. Israel will be reestablished – Jesus told the parable of the fig tree (Israel) when you see it sprouting (reborn). “So you also, when you see these things happening, know that the kingdom of God is near.” Luke 21;31
  2. “False messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.Remember, I have told you ahead of time. Mark 13:21-22
  3.  “And you will hear of wars and rumours of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.” Matthew 24:6
  4. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Matthew 24:7
  5. There will be signs in the sun and moon and stars, and on the earth nations will be in distress, anxious over the roaring of the sea and the surging waves. People will be fainting from fear and from the expectation of what is coming on the world, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. “But when these things begin to happen, stand up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”
  6. “Now regarding the arrival of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to be with him… Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not arrive until the rebellion comes and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction. He opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, and as a result he takes his seat in God’s temple, displaying himself as God. Surely you recall that I used to tell you these things while I was still with you.” 2 Thessalonians 2:1–5
  7. “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and takes the mark on his forehead or his hand, that person will also drink of the wine of God’s anger that has been mixed undiluted in the cup of his wrath, and he will be tortured with fire and sulphur in front of the holy angels and in front of the Lamb… This requires the steadfast endurance of the saints—those who obey God’s commandments and hold to their faith in Jesus. Revelation 14:9–12
  8. So when you see the abomination of desolation–spoken about by Daniel the prophet—standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), then those in Judea must flee to the mountains.

Sadly, much of the church has been deceived into believing a Pretribulation Rapture. The Bible clearly teaches in these Scriptures that the Saints will experience tribulation even great tribulation. However, the Bible also teaches the Saints will be raptured at the sixth seal before God pours out His wrath upon the earth in the trumpet and bowl judgements.
