NUMBER OF CHRISTIANS DECLINING RAPIDLY IN SO CALLED DEVELOPED COUNTRIES

The percentage of younger Americans being raised in nonreligious homes is growing rapidly according to statistics from the Public Religious Research Institute.

Only 65 percent of Americans now identify as Christian while those who identify as religiously unaffiliated swelled to 26 percent of the population. The drop in the number of Americans identifying as Christian reflected a 12 percent decline when compared to the general population 10 years ago. The decline was visible across multiple demographics but particularly among young adults.

Nearly one in five (19%) Americans switched from their childhood religious identity to become unaffiliated as adults, and relatively few (3%) Americans who were raised unaffiliated are joining a religious tradition. This dynamic has resulted in a dramatic net gain—16 percentage points—for the religiously unaffiliated.

In the 1970s, only about one-third (34%) of Americans who were raised in religiously unaffiliated households were still unaffiliated as adults. By the 1990s, slightly more than half (53%) of Americans who were unaffiliated in childhood retained their religious identity in adulthood. Today, about two-thirds (66%) of Americans who report being raised outside a formal religious tradition remain unaffiliated as adults,” PRRI said.

A similar situation exists in the UK, Europe and Australia. Sadly, also many of those that profess to be Christian are not born again believers and are increasingly compromising with the world and its values.

In the last days before Jesus return, He told His disciples we can expect the following:

“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved.” Matthew 24: 9-13

Persecution of Christians is on the increase as we insist on the truth about God’s laws concerning morality, particularly homosexuality, marriage and gender. How soon will it descend to “hated by all nations for My name’s sake.

SPIRITUAL WARFARE -INTENSIFIES IN THE LAST DAYS

The same demonic powers and principalities that operated through Queen Jezebel in the Old Testament and this woman called Jezebel in the New Testament, they’re operating again today with increased intensity. Some of the ways those demonic spirits are operating today is through: abortion, euthanasia, immorality, homosexuality, transgenderism, radical feminism, witchcraft, sorcery and persecution of Christians.

Jezebel's War With America

Jezebel of the Old Testament was an idol-worshipper. We see in 1 Kings 21:25 that Ahab did more evil than any of Israel’s kings before him, but he was “stirred up” by his wife, Jezebel. She emasculates men, she silenced the prophets, she was a murderer—she had the prophets killed. We also know that in the ancient world that idolatry was often associated with sacrificing babies to idols.

Radical feminism has helped further the abortion agenda. And this isn’t just a push for the right for women to get abortions if they’ve been raped or the baby is severely ill. Women are now “shouting their abortions” as if killing an innocent baby is something to be proud of. Moreover, as I have said many times, the teaching of evolution has been one of Satan’s greatest ploys to convince the world that it has no need for a creator and therefore they are free to do what is right in their own eyes.

The Western world. has seen an incredible upsurge in sexual immorality in the last few decades. Pornography is easily accessible on the internet, including on smartphones. Then consider the recent legalisation of gay marriage and the left’s radical push to accept transgenderism. Imagine the effect this is having on the next generation. It has no concept of a loving but holy and righteous God, nor that the beginning of wisdom is to fear God.

All of what we are seeing being manifest is prophesied to happen in the last days before Jesus returns. Let’s remember, that Jesus is Lord. Satan is defeated. All of his minions are defeated. We can overcome. Let’s recognise the enemy, let’s get equipped, and I say, for the sake of our communities, in Jesus’ name, let’s see the Jezebel spirit come down.

This post was inspired by Micheal Brown’s new book “Jezebel’s War with America”.If you want to defeat this demonic spirit in your own life get the book.

ROAD MAP OF THE END TIMES

There is a road map to the end times. Two passages in Scripture, each describing the same 13 events are found in exactly the same order. What will it tell us about Jesus’s coming on the clouds? How does the Tribulation period begin? What’s the timing of the Rapture? When is the Antichrist revealed?

Another great video from Nelson Walters, this time to provide the Road Map of end times events as given by Jesus in both the Olivet Discourse and in Revelation 6. What are the odds of these being the same events and in the same order? Nelson reveals that the odds are extremely high.

God has provided this road map for a reason. As I have said many times, there are far more prophecies about Jesus second coming than there were of His first coming. Surely, it is to prepare the church particularly as God is going to allow the church to experience tribulation, even great tribulation, just prior to His return to rapture the saints.

BIGGEST ANIMAL DISEASE OUTBREAK ON PLANET EARTH

Fox News Flash: Top Headlines for June 6th, 2019

This is the biggest animal disease outbreak we’ve ever had on the planet,” Dirk Pfeiffer, a veterinary epidemiologist at City University of Hong Kong and swine fever expert, said. “It makes the foot and mouth disease and [mad cow disease] outbreaks pale in comparison to the damage that is being done. And we have no way to stop it from spreading.”

China is the epicentre for this outbreak, and it is also home to half of all the pigs in the world. Actually, to be more accurate, I should say that it used to be home to half of all the pigs in the world. In a normal year, China slaughters approximately 700 million pigs. But according to Rabobank, that number will be down 30% this year due to this outbreak. To put that into perspective, that 30% loss in production is equivalent to Europe’s entire annual pork supply, and almost 30% larger than U.S. annual pork production.

We have never seen an animal disease outbreak like this before, and it is rapidly getting worse. African Swine Fever, also referred to as “pig Ebola”, has already wiped out millions upon millions of pigs and it continues to spread to even more countries. There is no vaccine, and there is no cure, and so essentially, we don’t have any way to stop this disease. At this point, the only solution is to kill all the pigs wherever the virus is found and desperately hope that it doesn’t spread anywhere else. But that approach clearly hasn’t been working, and according to a recent Fox News report, this epidemic has now become the “biggest animal disease outbreak we’ve ever had on the planet”

Jesus on the “end times” prior to His return: “And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. “All these are the beginning of sorrows” (Matthew 24:7-8) that lead up to the final seven years (70th week of Daniel) prior Jesus return and His Millennial reign on this earth.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR JESUS SECOND COMING

Most evangelical Christians, that I know, believe we’re living in the prophesied end times, but for many it has made little difference to their lifestyle. There is no sense of urgency to get about their Heavenly Father’s business or to understand where we are on God’s historical timeline. Fortunately, Nelson Walters has put together this video, “How to Prepare for the Last Days – It first answers three fundamental questions:

  1. Have the end times begun?
  2. I’m saved, what else do I need to do?
  3. What are God’s purposes for the end times?

Once these questions are answered, everyone will want to see the rest of the video to learn Jesus’s special commands for the last days and the believers’ role in them.

WE NEED MORE ISRAEL FOLAU’S : COURAGEOUS FOR CHRIST

Thank goodness for articles like this one from Alan Jones in THE AUSTRALIAN.

“The issue around Folau is really quite simple. You either believe in God or you don’t. You are either a Christian or you are not.

But if you are a Christian, or claim to be a Christian and you do believe in heaven and hell, and the word of Jesus Christ, then you should be living according to God’s word.

Or are some people pretending to be Christians and picking and choosing which doctrines they will adhere to?

Israel Folau with his wife Maria at Kenthurst Uniting Church after a Sunday service

If you are a Christian, what Folau posted is truth. You might think it is out of date or not relevant or not contemporary, but a committed Christian believes in that so could not in any way be offended.

And if you are not a Christian, then there is no such thing as hell. So what is the kerfuffle?

Thank goodness for social media.

As I have said, it is clear Rugby Australia either can’t read or do not care about their constituency, or both. Or are they comforted by the fact that everyone on the payroll has toed the party line.

How extraordinary that not one single person on the payroll of Rugby Australia has dared to step out of line and say simply that this Folau issue is a heap of crock.

I was asked to write two pieces for The Australian last week. It is a matter of public record that they were viewed by more than 2.3 million people on my Facebook page. There were more than 10,000 individual comments.

On The Australian’s website, where you can only comment if you are a subscriber, there were 1900 further individual comments.

The overwhelming majority of these comments support Folau and his right to basic freedoms.

Rugby Australia argue that one of their values is “inclusiveness”, but they don’t want to “include” Folau; more importantly, they obviously don’t want to “include” the supporters of the game.

There is a golden rule in life. When you are digging a hole for yourself and getting deeper and deeper into trouble, it is a good idea to stop digging.

Yet here are Rugby Australia, on the wrong side of their constituency on almost every other issue, now isolating thousands of fans by prosecuting Folau for expressing his religious beliefs. The public comments are telling:

Carolyn: “Thank you Alan for such a well-written article. May God richly bless you for standing up and supporting this young man and the right of all Christians to share our faith.”

That is a touch indulgent, but Carolyn is surely entitled to her view.

Or, when Rugby talks “diversity”, does it really mean “uniformity”?

Fred: “If they drop Folau, I’ll drop rugby. No support, no going to games, no watching it on TV.”

Susan: “This is discrimination and humiliation of an individual on the basis of his religious beliefs. The only victim here is Israel Folau.”

Adam: “I spend $1500 a year on tickets to watch the Wallabies. This year I won’t be spending a cent. Leave Israel alone Rugby Australia.”

Cassie: “Why was Alan Joyce allowed to use his platform as Qantas CEO to push his agenda and Folau not?”

Maria: “Goodbye rugby union. I have been a fan of the Wallabies since I was young. You have lost me forever.”

Andrew: “I’m out. I’m done with rugby. I’ll never watch it again.”

John: “The RA Board needs to go and so does the CEO of Qantas.”

Corey: “Political correctness has infected all media and sports codes. Rugby Australia are scared to offend a 2 per cent minority.”

George: “The Folau incident is forcing us to ponder … are we still a Christian country?”

Gerrard: “It is amazing how politicians are praised for respecting our Christian traditions by not campaigning at Easter but Israel Folau loses his job for upholding the same traditions. Perhaps we need rugby sponsors who believe and uphold our western Judaeo-Christian values.”

At least Kent put a smile on our faces when he wrote: “My experience of hell is watching the Wallabies play.”

There are simple fundamental questions at work here. Can a sponsor include any conditions it likes to control the activities of all the employees of the organisation it is sponsoring?

Yet the same sponsor can enter a commercial partnership with countries that openly commit atrocities against gay people.

This has all reached farcical proportions. I see one headline which says: “If Rugby Australia doesn’t successfully expel Folau, World Rugby will have to.”

Are these people on something? This is brewing as a massive and expensive legal issue. There are tens of thousands of people signing petitions in support of a world-class player.

Rugby Australia seem to be driving the process as an employment contract breach. Folau and his supporters see this as an infringement of civil liberties; that citizens of this so-called free country should be entitled to share their religious beliefs.

All Folau has done is quote 2000-year-old scripture.

As Thomas Jefferson said in relation to the US constitutional right to the freedom of speech, expressing one’s own beliefs, is “neither picking my pocket nor breaking my leg”.

The politically correct do-gooders do not have to listen to or agree with Folau.

But if Folau was offering a Christian warning to so-called sinners, and he managed to rope us all in, I was made aware of a more significant warning only this week by someone who read what I had written.

I was reminded that Martin Niemöller, a German theologian, had been a prominent pastor of an influential parish in Berlin-Dahlem from 1931 until his arrest in July 1937.

His incarceration, first in Moabit Prison, then in Sachsenhausen and finally in Dachau in 1945 brought feelings of shame and guilt for some of his positions since 1933.

And it prompted his famous confession: “First, they came for the socialists and I did not speak out because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak for me.”

What an incongruity on this matter that some speak out because money speaks; and some are frightened to speak out because money speaks.

If Folau is wrong, then do we burn the Bible?

The German-Jewish poet Heinrich Heine once declared: “Wherever books are burnt, humans are destined to be burnt too.”

Folau now faces a code of conduct panel. His post was on April 10.

The hearing is on May 4. What does that say about justice delayed? And what anyway is the panel about?

Rugby Australia has ignored its own processes and protocols. Before any chance was given for Folau to defend himself, he has been punished, condemned, defamed and humiliated.

After all, NSW played last week. He was not picked. The Australian coach says he won’t be picked for the Wallabies.

The captain of Australia and NSW says he won’t play in the same team as Folau. Will selectors tell that young man that he doesn’t pick the team? Or has the whole show gone completely mad?

Do the professionally offended believe they have won? If Folau is finished, I am sorry but Rugby Australia is finished too.

The administrative changes that I have argued for, for months now, must immediately occur.

But on this issue, there can be only one result; and how the phalanx of people advising Rugby Australia don’t see it is unbelievable. Stop digging the hole. Stop further damaging the game. Stop dragging this mess out any further. Have the decency to practice the “inclusiveness” you boast about.

We need a leader to bring all parties together and start again. Rugby Australia and Qantas cannot win. If they win, Australia loses.

One final point. Please tell the volunteers and the battlers out there in clubland that Qantas should be made to pay for all the costs involved. Without their involvement, we would not be in this space. And if Qantas have not put the gun to the head of Rugby Australia, say so and I am happy to report it.

But back to where we began. Can someone in Rugby Australia read the judgment of the Federal Court in Brisbane 10 days ago in relation to the distinguished James Cook University professor Peter Ridd.

He too was sacked for expressing sincerely held scientific views.

The Federal court found the university’s treatment of this eminent professor was unlawful. Termination became vindication.

I suspect a similar outcome awaits Folau.

THE NATIONS OF THE MIDDLE EAST ARE CENTRE STAGE IN GOD’S REDEMPTIVE PLAN

Make no mistake during the End-Times, God will focus His attention on bringing to fulfilment the covenants that He made with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and David.

Most of Daniel’s visions focus on the Gentile kingdoms in history, and on their rule over the people and land of Israel. It was revealed to Daniel that the Gentile kingdoms would have dominion over Israel until the time of the end  and the coming of their Messiah. He was given understanding that the nation of Israel, and their Land, is going to be embattled and fought over until the end. There will come a time, however, when that season of the Gentiles’ dominion will come to an end; a time when the Land will be given back to the people of Israel; a time when they are going to be restored to the Land.

The Bible clearly says that His divine activity will be both “great and terrible” as He zealously works to persuade the peoples of the Gentile nations to turn from their evil ways and accept His “redemptive plan” as it will be expressed in history through the manifestation on earth of the everlasting covenants that He made with Israel. At the same time, God will be working dramatically among Jewish people, and for the nation of Israel, to turn whole-heartedly to Him—accepting the Messiah that He has already sent to make a way for their salvation. We are told that by the end of this age, the surviving Jewish people will believe on and receive Jesus as their Messiah and King!

Throughout the New Testament, the prophecies written about the End-Times and the return of Jesus are focused on Israel and other key nations of the Middle East. The Book of Revelation portrays the cities of Babylon and Jerusalem as the two most prominent cities in the End-Times drama.

The nations of the Middle East will be the “stage” upon which God completes His activity of redemption in this age and ushers in the next age, which will be a time of renewal and restoration that will affect the whole world.

Jesus is Returning

In mercy the throne will be established; and One will sit on it in truth, in the tabernacle of David, judging and seeking justice and hastening righteousness. (Isaiah 16:5)

The way to be righteous for those who would partake of God’s Kingdom is “through faith in Jesus Christ.” 

“But the righteous man shall live by faith.” (Romans 1:16-17)

Righteousness is not through our works. It is a gift that we receive and that we live by through faith in Jesus.

“God made Him (Jesus) who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.” (Corinthians 5:21) Awesome! This verse is one of the most “astounding” verses in all of Scripture.

It is important to emphasise here that there is only “one-way” of salvation; only one-way to become a Righteous citizen of God’s Kingdom.

“To Him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by His blood, and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve His God and Father—to Him be glory and power forever and ever! Amen.” (Revelation 1:5-6)

Sadly much of the apostate church believes Jesus is not the only way to God. This is heresy and leads only to destruction.

Also, this issue of “identity” has become a concern for many Jews who are now “Messianic believers;” those who believe in Jesus (Yeshua) as their Messiah. They struggle with what they should do with the Law—and with the covenant that was made with Moses and with the children of Israel at Mount Sinai. They often identify themselves, as Jews, with many of the things that they were taught under the Law, as well as from traditions that have sprung up throughout their history. Paul made it clear that Jews must also submit to God’s perfected way of becoming Righteous, which is only through believing in Jesus, the Messiah:

Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved. For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.” (Romans 10:1-4)

It is important to pray for the Messianic community, so that they may come to accurately understand God’s heart and God’s Word. This difficult situation, most likely, will only increase in the last days, when the Temple is rebuilt in Jerusalem and a revived Levitical priesthood institutes daily sacrifices and offerings again.

IS IRAN (ANCIENT PERSIA) THE TWO HORNED RAM OF DANIEL 8?

Gabriel himself told Daniel that the vision concerned the end times. He did not say that part of the vision was historical and part of it was future. He simply said that the vision concerned the time of the end and then repeated it.

“Son of man (Daniel), understand that the vision pertains to the time of the end.” (Daniel 8:17).

Behold, I (Gabriel) am going to let you (Daniel) know what will occur at the final period of the indignation, for it pertains to the appointed time of the end.” (Daniel 8:19).

Then in Daniel 8:20 “The ram which you (Daniel) saw, having the two horns—they are the kings of Media and Persia.”

There is no doubt that the modern nation of Iran geographical encompasses the three ancient peoples mentioned in Daniel – Medes, Elam and Persians. 

Image result for book Iran;s Great Invasion by Mark Davidson

Mark Davidson in his book Iran’s Great Invasion suggests the two horns are represented by the two power bases existing in Iran today: the Ayatollah is the supreme leader, the political power but the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps is the military power.

Daniel describes the second horn growing up later and stronger which describes the IRGC precisely e.g. former President Ahmadinejad awarded two-thirds of the cabinet positions to former IRGC commanders.

Daniel tells us that the ram will run out (invade): north, west and south and it even tells us the starting point Susa on the border of Iran and Iraq.

WEST – Syria: Already, we know that Iran has military in Syria -The Islamic Republic of Iran has conducted an extensive, expensive, and integrated effort to keep President Bashar al-Assad in power as long as possible while setting conditions to retain its ability to use Syrian territory and assets to pursue its regional interests should Assad fall. The deployment of IRGC Ground Forces to conflict abroad is a notable expansion of Iran’s willingness and ability to project military force beyond its borders.

WEST – LebanonThe Shiite militia known as Hezbollah was created by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps to be an Iranian proxy, nominally “resisting” Israel, but in fact resisting the normal governance of Lebanon by its people. After more than 30 years, Hezbollah is still in Lebanon, sacrificing lives, resisting democracy, dictating foreign policy and corrupting the true Lebanese Armed Forces. Since the 2006 war with Israel, Hezbollah has rearmed dramatically, with an estimated 150,000 missiles, including short-range Katyusha-type rockets and thousands of medium-range missiles capable of striking Tel Aviv. In November of last year, the Saudi-supported prime minister of Lebanon, Saad Hariri, in a broadcast from Riyadh announced his resignation, blaming Iran’s “grip” on his country via Shiite movement Hezbollah.

WEST – Iraq Iran has effectively won the struggle to dominate the future of Iraq. It has done so against the formidable Shi’ite Arab populace, and after nearly a month of raw pressure, manipulations, special operations, threats and cajoling. The Iraqi election of May 12, 2018 — the catalyst for the Iranian intervention — was but the harbinger of a greater threat looming. Thus — even as the final election results are still being challenged, calculated, manipulated, and abused — the key outcome is clear: The future government in Baghdad will be dominated by pro-Iran Shi’ites.

WEST – Israel: 

Hamas’ new leader, Yehiyeh Sinwar,  in the Gaza Strip said Monday his group has repaired relations with Iran after a five-year rift and is using its newfound financial and military aid to gear up for new hostilities with Israel.

“Today, the relationship with Iran is excellent, or very excellent,” Sinwar said. He added that the Islamic Republic is “the largest backer financially and militarily” to Hamas’ military wing.

The announcement  came as U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres was visiting Israel. At a meeting with the U.N. chief, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu complained about what he called rising anti-Israel activity by Iran and its allies in the region.

In his meeting with Guterres, Netanyahu alleged Iran is building sites in Syria and Lebanon to produce “precision-guided missiles” to be used against Israel.

Israel and Iran are bitter enemies, and Israel has recently expressed concern that Iran and its Lebanese proxy Hezbollah are seeking a permanent military presence in Syria near the Israeli border. Both Hezbollah fighters and Iran have backed Assad’s forces in the Syrian war.

Iran is busy turning Syria into a base of military entrenchment, and it wants to use Syria and Lebanon as war-fronts against its declared goal to eradicate Israel,” Netanyahu said. “This is something Israel cannot accept. This is something the U.N. should not accept.”

SOUTH – Saudi Arabia: The “Cold War” between Middle East rivals Saudi Arabia and Iran has been heating up.

The Sunni-Shiite divide between Saudi Arabia and Tehran is a crucial factor in conflicts between the two countries.

Religious tensions have heightened since the 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq that brought the majority Shiites to power in Baghdad instead of Saddam’s Sunni-dominated regime.

Sunni powerhouse Saudi Arabia and Iran, the predominant Shiite power, have a long-standing rivalry based as much in geo-strategic interests as religious differences. Facing off across the Gulf, the two energy-rich powers have for decades stood on opposing sides of conflicts in the Middle East.

The Iranian revolution of 1979 and the advent of the Islamic Republic — with its fiercely anti-American slant — were perceived as a double threat to the conservative Sunni monarchies of the Arabian Peninsula, allied with the United States.

Saudi Arabia was a key financial backer of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein during his 1980-1988 war with Iran. With Iraq weakened following the 1991 Gulf War, Saudi Arabia and Iran became “the two main regional powers,” said Clement Therme, a researcher at the International Institute for Strategic Studies.

The latest round of tensions began when Riyadh and Tehran broke off diplomatic relations in January 2016, after Iranians stormed Saudi Arabia’s embassy and consulate in response to the execution of a prominent Shiite cleric.

On the first weekend of November, the animosity reached new heights, Saudi Arabia said its air defences near Riyadh intercepted and destroyed a missile fired from Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition is battling Iran-backed Shiite rebels.

The Bible is primarily a book of prophecy with a major emphasis on Jesus first and especially His second coming. It tells us the events that will happen next.
Iran’s (the ram) time centre stage is brief.
The male goat that overcomes the ram is believed to be Turkey (Sunni) who is seeking to reestablish its former position as leader of the Muslims, with a revived Ottoman Empire. Suggest you read the article in Abaka News by Edmond Y Azaian entitled Erdogan’s Ottoman Ambitions Are for Real

My next post will include a video of Joel Richardson on the final Gog/Magog war.

“Then he (male goat with one notable horn) came to the ram that had two horns, which I had seen standing beside the river, and ran at him with furious power. And I saw him confronting the ram; he was moved with rage against him, attacked the ram, and broke his two horns. There was no power in the ram to withstand him, but he cast him down to the ground and trampled him; and there was no one that could deliver the ram from his hand.” Daniel 8:6-7

SEX MATTERS: HOW MODERN FEMINISM LOST TOUCH WITH SCIENCE, LOVE AND COMMONSENSE

 Mona Charen is a well-known conservative author, columnist and speech writer who has spoken out about the dangers of modern feminism and the transgender identity push on children. But what many might not know about her is that at one point in her childhood, she wanted people to call her “Timmy.””I shudder to think what would have happened if I had come along a little later in history,” Charen told The Christian Post during an interview this week about her book, Sex Matters: How Modern Feminism Lost Touch With Science, Love and Common Sense.In her book, Charen explains how second-wave feminists had argued for years about how the differences between men and women were a result of social construct and conditioning.

“Overall, [their view of] sex differences has been debunked by scientific research in the last decades. We know so much more now about brain structure and organization, about the influence of hormones, about certain basic hardwire differences between male and female brains as well as bodies,” the 61-year-old author said. “The idea that everything that is different about man and women being a result of socialization has been shown to be wrong. That is where the science has caught up with them.”

Instead of acknowledging the scientific findings, Charen said, dishonest feminists sought to “change the vocabulary.”

“They stopped talking about there being no difference between the sexes and they started talking about gender,” she said. “They said, ‘Well, there are many genders and gender is subjective and it can’t be measured by hormones and chromosomes. They really just kind of, with sleight of hand and language, they avoided the scientific debunking of their pet theories about people being identical.”

The movement to change such language is also playing out at the public school level. Most recently, a school board in Virginia voted to change the language in its middle school and high school sex-ed curriculum to scrub out the phrase “biological sex” and replace it with “sex assigned at birth.”

“There are even parents now who are declining to assign a sex to their babies. They don’t want to tell people whether they had a boy or a girl. They are saying they are going to find out as the child develops what sex it is,” she said. “I regard this as the logical endpoint of the feminist’s wrong ideas of the 1970s that everything is socially constructed. That is where we have arrived.” “We have arrived at a place where we are now investing a lot into the idea of gender identity — which I am not even sure is a thing,” Charen continued. “They are investing a lot in the idea that this is all purely subjective.”

In Charen’s view, she doesn’t have a problem with adults who want to go through with gender transition procedures and therapies because it is a “free country” and “people can do whatever they want.”

“But I think it is really dangerous, just based on a theory about sexuality, to begin giving massive hormone-blocking injections to prepubescent children and to mess with their psyche’s by … cutting [a girl’s] hair in a boy’s fashion and putting [a girl] in boy’s clothing and treating her as a boy,” Charen stressed. “Kids go through phases. Some girls are very masculine and they are still girls. Some boys are very feminine but they are still boys. The notion that you would interfere with that is really scary. Children are not capable of making such life-altering, drastic decisions for themselves, certainly not when they are preschoolers. I find this whole thing very, very dangerous.”

Charen is right it is dangerous and clear evidence we are in the last days. God will not tolerate the wickedness that is being done to children. It is, as in “the days of Noah when wickedness abounded”, the time when Jesus will return to rule and reign and righteousness will be restored.

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.
