GOD AT WORK 2

More and more Christians are realising the need to warn the church of the coming increased persecution of Jews and Christians as we approach the prophesied “end times” tribulation and then great tribulation prior to Jesus return.

My brother in Christ, Futon Sheen in his recent Newsletter, Coronavirus Reality v Perception & World Markets said the following:

“These are all shakings which scripture has clearly articulated would happen as the time of Christ’s return draws near. As Christians grounded in scripture, we should understand and expect this and not be anxious or fearful.  That is not the case for unbelievers and governments which follow their own hearts and put their faith in themselves and the external world which surrounds them, they have much to fear. Hosea 4:6 says, My people are destroyed for lack of understanding, and people fear what they don’t understand. Over 350 times scripture says “do not fear,” as fear is the opposite of faith, but it is the automatic default of the flesh when something suddenly interrupts our expectations of what we think should be happening. This is why social media, news media, governments, markets and individuals tend to overreact to whatever is going on around them.

The times described in Matthew 24, Luke 21 and Mark 13, which Jesus said would come, are upon us and God is shaking everything that can be shaken. We need to do what these passages tell us, which is to be watchful and prepared, so that we won’t be caught off guard, fearful, confused, or manipulated by the circumstances and situations swirling around us. We need to pray for eyes that see, ears that hear and a mind that comprehends what’s going on in the spiritual realm, so we can wisely, peacefully and methodically walk out what Jesus tells us to do.

WORLD VIEWS THAT ARE SHAPING OUR WORLD

Elon Musk, the billionaire founder of Tesla, thinks another mass extinction is coming. And he’s dedicated himself to saving us.
Musk is correct in that there was a mass extinction in the past but it is not what Musk and most of the scientific community believes. Based on belief in  evolution, they believe 251 million years ago, the Great Permian Extinction wiped out around 96% of Earth’s species. The correct Creation/Biblical view is God caused mass extinction just 4,000 years ago with a worldwide flood. Billions of dead things (fossils) buried all around the world is the stark evidence of this event.

Jesus warned us that in the “last days”  “You should remember the predictions of the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Savior through your apostles, knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. They will say, “Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.” For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God, and that by means of these the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished. But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgement and destruction of the ungodlyBut do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 2 Peter 3:2-8 
Notice the reference to the fact that “with the Lord one day is a thousand years” is directly after he says, they will deliberately overlook His creation and the flood. I believe this is a direct reference to the days of creation being a template/picture of the age of the earth at the time of the His second coming. It confirms the age given by the genealogies given in the Bible in both the O.T and N.T., thousands not billions of years.
Musk recently granted Rolling Stone an exclusive interview where he discussed his troubled childhood, his fear of never finding someone to love him… and Earth’s imminent doom. If only, someone had told him the truth about His Creator. The Father who loves Elon enough to send His Son to earth to die for him so he can be born again, born of the Spirit into a renewed eternal relationship with his Heavenly Father.
One can only surmise how it would have changed Elon’s life. His accomplishments have been impressive.
Tesla, his electric car company, and Solar City, his solar energy company, both reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and make the air cleaner to breathe.
He’s also developing the Hyperloop, a mass transportation system that shoots pods through a tube at 800 miles per hour, thus reducing traffic and travel time.
Then there’s his honeycomb of underground tunnels – outfitted with electric skates – to relieve traffic congestion.
However, it’s interesting that Musk’s biggest concern is technology. From the Rolling Stone interview:
“Climate change is the biggest threat that humanity faces this century, except for AI [artificial intelligence]. I keep telling people this. I hate to be Cassandra here, but it’s all fun and games until somebody here loses a fucking eye.”
Musk fears artificial intelligence could enslave all of humanity. Perhaps he fears a Matrix or Terminator style future.
And that’s one of the reasons behind his company SpaceX– a private space travel company: when the stuff really hits the fan, you can hop on a rocket and leave Earth.
As Musk tells Rolling Stone:
“And if we were a multi-planetary species, that would reduce the possibility of some single event, man-made or natural, taking out civilisation as we know it, as it did the dinosaurs…
Unless you’re a cockroach or a mushroom – or a sponge – you’re fucked. It’s insurance of life as we know it, and it makes the future far more inspiring if we are out there among the stars and you could move to another planet if you wanted to.”
Without God and the Good News of Jesus, Elon is right we are f____. How important it is you have a right world view based on the inerrant word of God.

ALIENS (DEMONS) – SATAN’S FINAL DECEPTIVE STRATEGY

The gloves are off now, as we enter the “last Days”. Fallen angels masquerading as our space brothers. Extreme? You need to read on.

Satan has effectively used the Theory of Evolution to dispense with creation and therefore God, but now that his “evolution” deception has been uncovered/exposed by the overwhelming evidence for intelligent design, particularly in biology. The ENCODE project has revealed the complexity of DNA and exposed the lie of “junk DNA”. There is only one source for the complex information on the DNA that enables the cell to function and reproduce itself, and that is an intelligent designer – God.

Satan knew this would eventually happen, so for years now, he has been preparing the way for the next major deception. Moreover, he has cleverly targeted the next generation but not only them. They have been bombarded with movies and computer games featuring Aliens. The rest of the population have been captured by reports of UFO’s and alien abductions.

Take a look at my August 2008 post, Aliens and UFO’s – What are they really?

Satan has been working on this ploy for many years. He would have you believe the source of this intelligent design is of course aliens. Fortunately, God has raised up discerning Christians like Gary Bates and Joe Jordan.

More about them later, but now in 2017, surveys estimate that more than 80% of Western peoples believe that ET is ‘out there somewhere’ which presumably encapsulates a lot of believers also. But many young people, in particular, have been influenced by science fiction notions of aliens traversing the galaxy in their faster-than-light spaceships and advanced weaponry. Moreover, young people’s belief in extra-terrestrials often goes hand-in-hand with a morbid fear of what aliens will do to them.

Belief in aliens—and fear arising from that—is a logical outflow of our young people having been sold the idea that we are the result of evolution, not creation. Life evolved on Earth (the argument says), therefore elsewhere in the universe—billions of years older than our solar system according to evolutionary reckoning—it would surely have evolved there, too.2 As well-known Search for Extra-terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) researcher Seth Shostak said when asked why he believed in the existence of intelligent extra-terrestrials:

“To believe that they don’t exist requires positing that what’s happened on Earth is some sort of miracle. I find that premise a tougher sell than to think that intelligence is a fairly frequent development in a 14-billion-year-old cosmos.”1

Thus, Shostak reveals he sees the miracle of Creation as ‘a tougher sell’ than neo-Darwinian notions that everything arose by itself. So, he and the rest of the evolutionary fraternity sell us evolution instead— as ‘fact’. And by hawking evolution to a vulnerable public, they’re also hawking fear of aliens, too. (pardon the pun)

Renowned celebrity physicist Stephen Hawking is at the forefront of the search for extra-terrestrial life. But he warns against making contact with aliens as he fears they will be two-billion-years ‘more evolved’.

“Hawking says he worries that any aliens ‘will be vastly more powerful and may not see us as any more valuable than we see bacteria’.”4

Back to Joe Jordan, a UFO researcher who is now wise as to who the ‘aliens’ actually are. Joe is the National Research Director for MUFON in South Korea. The Mutual UFO Network is the world’s largest clearing house for UFO investigations and reports. Joe came upon something hugely significant. When trying to figure out what was really happening to people who were claiming to be abducted by aliens, he discovered that ‘abductions’ were being halted by people who called out in the name of Christ. What’s more, people who professed to be practising born-again Christians seemed to be generally immune from such experiences. He soon noticed that many in MUFON were already aware of this, but were ignoring it because it did not fit their belief that such experiences were of an extra-terrestrial nature. After being led to a Bible study as part of his research to find out what it was about Christians that “aliens didn’t like”, Joe realized that he was ultimately dealing with a spiritual phenomenon and not an extra-terrestrial one—and became a Christian.7

Other people who have also realized the real identity of the ‘aliens’ include Guy Malone who had also experienced alleged ‘alien abductions’. When exposed to the Gospel of Christ, the ‘abduction’ episodes ceased. Guy realized that what he had experienced were in fact spiritual encounters of the ‘ungodly’ kind—fallen angels masquerading as glorious ‘space brothers’.7

But for the younger generation, being schooled in evolution opens them to being vulnerable from multiple angles. As we’ve seen from the comments of Stephen Hawking and others, evolutionary teaching predisposes people to belief in the possible existence of aliens—and the concomitant fears arising from that. More fundamentally, evolutionary schooling lessens the likelihood of someone believing in God, therefore depriving them of the ability to clothe themselves in Christ and the demonstrated protection that affords from demonic visitation.

Ideas have consequences. Hawking evolution on to our young people is really doing them an immense disservice, to put it mildly. Thankfully, there are abundant creationist resources available on www.creation.com such as Alien Intrusion, to replace in the minds of young people any fear of aliens with the fear of the Lord—“the beginning of wisdom” (Psalm 111:10).
