WHY ARE YOUNG PEOPLE DEPARTING FROM A BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW?

Why are younger people departing from a Biblical worldview? How did this happen?

Satan developed a strategic plan to destroy God’s Word and he took aim at the foundational book of the Bible – Genesis.

Take God out of the creation story and you destroy the Biblical foundations: man and woman made in God’s image, marriage, supernatural beings, angels, including enemies of God a fallen angel called Satan and his demons, The Fall of mankind, a worldwide flood of Noah’s Day, confusion of languages (Tower of Babel) that established the nations, and God established His nation, Israel for His purposes. All leading to God, JESUS, entering history at the appointed time.

Evolution has been Satan’s most successful strategy. If Darwin’s evolution is true, God is not necessary to explain the existence of the Cosmos. It evolved over billions of years. To do that you have to make Noah’s Flood a myth and yet just about all people groups around the world have a flood story in their foundational history and numerous geologists of today recognize that there is abundant evidence in the rocks and fossils that speaks of water-related rapid catastrophic deposition, just as would be expected with Noah’s Flood. Sadly, the growing number of neo-catastrophists still cling to millions of years by assuming many sequences of catastrophes separated by millions of years.

Schools and universities now teach evolution and the Big Bang as fact. The U.S. District Court on December 20, 2005, charged that even teaching intelligent design (ID) was an unconstitutional establishment of religion. Even many theological schools have now accepted evolution and billions of years as scientific fact which has destroyed Biblical history and belief in an inerrant Bible.

Once God was removed from history then it was only a matter of time before God’s commandments were also jettisoned from every area of life: government, law, sex, marriage, family, life (abortion and euthanasia), and finally lawlessness abounds.

The institutional church has abandoned God’s word and lost its power. It is no longer relevant and in fact considered a danger that must be controlled by legislation.

Most parents still try to teach Christian values to their kids: how to be kind and generous and hardworking, etc. They have disciplined their kids in life skills like keeping a clean room and working hard at school and being polite. But at school, they are taught evolution and therefore the Bible and the God of the Bible are myths. The Bible and its God are no longer relevant, and “SIN” what is that? We can make up our own rules. Hence, abortion, euthanasia, homosexuality, gay marriage, and transgenderism are all acceptable lifestyle choices.

Unless parents tackle the creation/evolution issue and therefore the historical accuracy of God’s Word they will have little to no impact on their children’s evolutionary worldview which allows them to live the life they choose. Why would they choose all the constraints the God of the Bible requires? However, God’s Word is true; fulfilled Biblical prophecy proves it to be an accurate record of God’s dealings with His world. Parents need to teach this truth so their children will submit to their Creator and reject the lies of their enemy Satan who is out to destroy them. To help parents teach biblically, God has raised up ministries like Creation Ministries International (CMI – http://www.creation.com) and Answers in Genesis both with Ph.D. scientists who can clearly show evolution as a failed theory and that the Bible’s “young earth” history is supported by scientific evidence. They have excellent resources for Christians to use. Also, discipleship must be daily, and not just in life skills, but apologetics, theology, prayer, the power of God, and missions.

Also, Children need to be taught how to become born-again Christians with the Holy Spirit indwelling their spirit. We cannot live the Christian life without the Holy Spirit. We are told the Holy Spirit is the one who produces the fruit of the Spirit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, faithfulness, gentleness, goodness, kindness, and self-control. He is the one who will make us Christ-like (sanctification). He is the one who provides all nine gifts (1 Corinthians 12:4-11) of the Spirit for ministry. Much of the institutional church teaches that God the Father sent Jesus to provide the way back to the Father by His sacrifice for us on The Cross but they do not teach that Jesus made it possible for the Father to send the Holy Spirit to enable us to live the Christian life and all that entails. It is the power of God.

PRAYER

Father, we thank you for ministries like CMI that are addressing the attack on the inerrancy of your Word. Bless them we pray and show us how we can play our part in supporting their efforts, particularly with churches in our area of influence. We pray for Christians in schools and universities that they may be able to bring your truths to light in their sphere of influence. Equip them with the correct materials to use by guiding them to websites like http://www.creation.com. Heavenly Father we ask you to raise up churches that will operate like the early churches described in the Book of Acts in the power of the Holy Spirit to do what you called us to do:

Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the ageMatthew 28:19-20

You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus, and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.” 2 Timothy 2:1-2

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6

THE METAVERSE – PART OF SATAN’S END TIMES STRATEGY

I remain highly concerned about how The Metaverse will impact our world. If we lose touch with our physical reality, we risk losing who we are under God and in Christ. We are made in God’s image. There is no duality between body and spirit. For Christians, our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit.

Secular thought today assumes a body/person split, with the body being defined in the ‘fact’ realm by empirical science/evolution (lower story) and the person defined in the ‘values’ realm/religion as the basis for rights (upper story). This dualism has created a fractured, fragmented view of the human being, in which the body is treated as separate from the authentic self” 

 

If the body is not actually part of the person, it is devalued of God-given divinity and exists as a tool to use for pleasure. This is where issues like transgenderism find their roots. For these individuals, the physical body is not aligned with the person; they are bifurcated. Gender is purely a social construct and not a result of biology.

 If we study the progressive movement closely, we will find that many of their social ideologies find their root in efforts to disrupt the person/body connection and destroy our humanity. Nancy Pearcey writes extensively about this in her book Love Thy Body. Here, she describes how, on a philosophical level, the modern person aims to bifurcate the reality between our body and person. If we understand them to not be morally and/or spiritually intertwined, we can find justification for all kinds of immoral acts.

Similar logic can be found in arguments that justify abortion. In these cases, the fetus is not really a person; it’s only cells. The cells will not become a person until some point in time that is convenient for the parties involved (this is called personhood theory). Again, underneath these arguments is an existential bifurcation of the body from the person. If the body and the person are not unified, the body is disposable. The same philosophical, two-story setup is found throughout the sexual revolution. When the body is fundamentally, philosophically, and theologically removed from the spirit/person, the body is a meaningless instrument for pleasure. This is wholly opposed to what scripture teaches about reality.

On the importance of having a holistic, unified biblical view of the body and person, Pearcey writes, “…it is based on a teleological (explanation of phenomena in terms of the purpose they serve rather than of the cause by which they arise) worldview that encourages us to live in accord with the physical design of our bodies. By respecting the body, the biblical ethic overcomes the dichotomy separating body from person. It heals self-alienation and creates integrity and wholeness…it fits who we really are.”

For our young people, will the Metaverse reality become as important (if not more important) than the physical one? Characters have avatars, homes, transportation, currency, and even education all in a virtual world. Will in most places, the physical world (God’s world) be in such disarray and dereliction that it is abandoned for time and life in the virtual world?

Earlier this month, The Wall Street Journal published a story with the title: “Kids Don’t Want Cash Anymore.” The article outlined how young people no longer value real-world currency as much as generations before. Instead, they want virtual currencies – in this case, virtual currency for the game Roblox or V-Bucks from the game Fortnite – to buy virtual items to use in their video games.

This may seem strange for older generations, but it’s part of a larger trend. Gaming is just as much a social activity today as it is a game. It’s how so many of us hang out with friends and have fun.

And for the younger crowds, physical possessions that sit on a shelf at home have far less value. Increasingly, people – especially young people – value virtual items as much or more than physical items. To them, a virtual piece of clothing is as desirable as the real thing. What they look like online or in a game, of what they can do with their characters/avatars are often far more important than what they look like in real life.

I believe the Metaverse is part of Satan’s “end times” strategy which also involves demons posing as aliens which I addressed in a recent post: NASA EMPLOYS PASTORS TO PREPARE THE WORLD FOR ALIENS.

If you needed further proof that this is the prophesied end times this is it. Now is the time to draw closer to God and make sure each day of your life is directed by the Holy Spirit.

NASA EMPLOYS PASTORS TO PREPARE THE WORLD FOR ALIENS

NASA recently hired two dozen theologians of all persuasions to offer “religious guidance” to people if and when contact with aliens were ever to occur. Many people already believe they have been contacted by aliens and even been taken up to spaceships by aliens. But it is Nelsons and my belief that what people call aliens are in fact demonic fallen angels and they appear in the “alien” guise to deceive people.

Think about how many Alien movies and children’s video games there are out there. It is my belief that this is Satan’s last strategy that will lead to the prophesied Antichrist’s arrival on the world stage .

One of Satan’s most successful strategies has been to convince the educational establishment that there is no need for God and that the Cosmos just evolved by natural selection and random chance. However, the discovery that DNA is multi-level complex information that can only come from an intelligent designer is making it impossible for evolutionists to hold the position of evolution by random chance. As well, the electron microscope now reveals all the complex machinery inside all of the different cells that make up living organisms, and these machines are controlled by the information in the DNA. This reveals “irreducible complexity” the organism had to be created with its DNA and complex machinery functioning efficiently on day one. Even the prominent atheist, Richard Dawkins has said that if it is “intelligent design” then it had to come from outer space – aliens.

So what kind of “guidance” will these pastors provide? Watch this #short episode of Last Days Breaking News with Nelson Walters to see what might happen.

EVIDENCE THE END IS NEAR

The Pride Liberation Project, which describes itself as a “nonprofit coalition of LGBTQIA+ students working to create safe, inclusive, and equitable schools,” estimates that 12,000-plus students participated in a walkout.

Twelve thousand children from at least 100 Virginia schools have been indoctrinated with this godless agenda indicating that the prophesied “end times” falling away is upon us.

Students are chanting “trans rights are human rights” and “protect trans youth.”

They were protesting a state government guidance directing schools not to allow trans-identified students to identify as the opposite biological sex without legal documents and to keep parents informed of changes to their child’s gender identity.

We commend the Virginia Department of Education under Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin who announced the “2022 Model Policies on the Privacy, Dignity, and Respect for All Students and Parents in Virginia’s Public Schools,” a document that defines ‘sex” as biological sex and creates a high bar for students to meet if they wish to identify as a member of the opposite biological sex in school. The guidance does not become official until after the public has had the opportunity to comment on it. The comment period opened Monday and lasts through Oct. 26.

Video footage from one of the protests, which took place at Annandale High School in the Washington, D.C. suburb of Fairfax County, Virginia, reveals students chanting “trans rights are human rights.” 

Only when parents present the school with a “legal document, such as a birth certificate, state- or federal-issued identification, passport, or court order substantiating” a student’s “change of legal name or sex” will the student’s record change to reflect their new gender identity.

Thank God that the document repeatedly acknowledges that “parents have the right to make decisions with respect to their children” and that “schools shall respect parents’ beliefs and values.”

We are in the world Jesus described as preceding His second coming to earth first to rescue His Saints and then to pour out His wrath upon an unrepentant world.

WITCHCRAFT IS NO LONGER EVIL

Deeply disturbing reality purportedly at center of new Disney film ‘Hocus Pocus 2’

The film has an unexpected twist: Witchcraft is no longer evil. When “Hocus Pocus,” directed by Kenny Ortega, was released in 1993, “satanic panic” had been running wild across the country for more than a decade, as witches and Satanists were blamed for harming young children and corrupting teenagers

Flash-forward 29 years. Satanic panic is ancient history and modern witchcraft has fully emerged from the proverbial broom closet, legally recognized and accepted as a spiritual path and religion. Pentacles appear on gravestones even in veteran’s cemeteries. Prison chaplains host Wiccan circles and Satanists fight openly for religious equality.

Occult practices, such as tarot, are now openly practiced by teens from all walks of life and all faiths.

The portrayal of witchcraft and the Sanderson sisters in the new film had to change to meet the times.

Disney’s writers did this by injecting a prototypical “Sabrina” teen witch into the narrative. “You’re a witch,” exclaims Izzy (Belissa Escobedo) to Becca (Whitney Peak), two of the three teenagers who make up the new movie’s new coven and learn to combine their girl power to fight evil magic. The writers add crystals, herbs and moon pendants, all available at the local metaphysical store. The teens banish a curse with counterclockwise movements and use salt as a means of protection. 

In the new film, witchcraft is just a tool that can be used as its practitioners see fit. “Power is meant to be shared,” Izzy says. 

Director Anne Fletcher (“The Proposal”) includes a glimpse of the 1993 Marshall scene as tribute to the original, but Satan is no longer the source of the witches’ magic — nature is. The forest, where the teens’ rituals are held, is called sacred and, as shown in a flashback to the witches’ childhood in old Salem, the spell book they use is given to them by another woodland witch, not the devil. 

This is just more evidence we are in the prophesied “last days” prior to Jesus return. As I have mentioned many times on this website there were 300 plus prophecies of Jesus first coming to earth as given in Isaiah 53.

But He was pierced for our transgressions; He was crushed for our iniquities; upon Him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with His wounds we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned—every one—to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.Isaiah 53:5-6

But there are 2000 prophecies about Jesus second coming to earth so we cannot say Jesus has not warned us beforehand.

For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. And if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short… For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand.Matthew 24:21-22, 24-25

DEMONIC ACTIVITY PREVALENT IN THE LAST DAYS

From the author that brought you 6 New York Times best-selling books including The Harbinger, The Book of Mysteries, The Oracle and The Harbinger II

Jonathan Cahn joins Erick Stakelbeck on TBN’s Praise to discuss his new book, The Return of the Gods. Cahn takes his readers on an unforgettable journey into the mysterious secrets of Biblical and ancient Middle Eastern parables and inscriptions — information that sheds light on the cataclysmic occurrences taking place right now in America and across the earth. These ancient prophecies and mysteries hold important clues to both the wickedness assaulting our world today and who is involved in initiating it, from the evil and troubling images that confront us on our computer monitors and television screens, to the breakdown of society and culture, the attack on our communities, families, and children, and the alarming present-day transformation of America and the world?

Biblical prophecy reveals; Jesus told us beforehand (Olivet Discourse in Matthew and Luke) that prior to His return it will be like the days of Noah when lawlessness abounded and indeed demonic activity was rife.
