Once upon a time, in a land not far away, it was said, “We the people!” Today however, a different tale rules that land.
We, the people of the United States, once had a government “of the people, by the people, for the people.” Not so today. Today the unrighteous rule the land. They rule because we, as a people, have ourselves become corrupt. We, the people of the United States, have received the government we deserve. This is part of God’s judgment upon these United States today.
What must we, who are called to be part of the solution, do? We must do what we can DO TODAY, and we must ACT GENERATIONALLY–Action today, with a long-term vision. The wicked have long-term vision; this is how they have gained control. Generation by generation they have been active, engaging the culture, influencing society toward immorality, socialism, and statism. They have largely done so by capturing the educational institutions (public school and college), government, and the media. We Christians have, to a large extent, sat by and watched, expecting the world to get worse, thinking we could do nothing about it, hoping Jesus would come and take us away in the Rapture.
We believe the wicked will be disinherited at the final judgment (Matthew 25:31-46). But many of us fail to understand that at this very moment Jesus Christ is exalted to the throne of his glorious Kingdom (Colossians 3:13; Revelation 1:9) and expects us, his Church, to carry out his GREAT Commission to disciple the nations, teaching them to obey all he has commanded us, and in the process, crush Satan under our feet (Romans 16:20), and make Christ’s enemies a footstool for his feet (Hebrews 10:12). The Bible tells us that Jesus will stay in heaven until this process is completed (Acts 3:21; I Corinthians 15:24-28; Psalm 110:1-2; take special note of the word “until” in these verses).
In other words, the wicked are disinherited NOT ONLY at the final judgment, but PROGRESSIVELY IN HISTORY, before Jesus comes again, BEFORE the rapture (Psalm 37; Proverbs 11:31). We see a slide downward in America, Canada, and once-Christian-Europe. But the West is not the full picture. There are great and marvelous things happening in China, South America, and Africa. Asland is on the move! It is not too late for Christians in the West. I pray that though we are poor, blind, and naked, we may not necessitate further discipline/judgment from the Lord before we get going. We must “buy” from the Lord “gold refined by fire”, “white garments”, and “eye salve” (Revelation 3:18).
“For God so loved the WORLD That He gave His only begotten Son, That whoever believes in HimShould not perish But have everlasting life.”
“May the Lamb that was slain receive the reward of His suffering!”
