Many Biblical Christians now understand that the time between today and the Second Coming of our LORD Jesus Christ will be filled with calamity and cyclic Judgments on the one hand, and the Greatest Harvest of Souls in the history of Mankind on the other. All of us must be prepared to receive the new lambs and help disciple them according to the Great Commission that the LORD has invested in us.
Matthew 28:18-20… Then Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority in Heaven and Earth has been given unto Me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the End of the Age.” AMEN!
The first five parts are in this particular blogpost. PLEASE do take the time to study and ponder the many implications before the LORD.
A Modern-day Parable- Part 1
By Ron McGatlin
In a land not so very far away and in a time of signs and wonders lived a people of great mystery.
A number of generations back in their history, life was simpler and moved at a slower pace. In the mostly agricultural-based culture, many young men and women did well with only a third grade to a sixth grade education. Generally life was lived in a more limited sphere of social and family relationships.
However, a few of the young men and women were much more highly gifted mentally. Though they lacked the brawn to be truly great at farming or forestry, they were intellectually far brighter than all the other people. Therefore, they grew to seek much higher places of ruling over what they considered were the common simple people. They had been given their exceptional mental gifts to bless and help the people of God. However, something else happened.
They began to consider themselves as elite human beings. The elite few were easily able to out-smart the population of the nations and thereby gain much wealth and power. These elite ones began to function as gods within themselves in a relatively small collective group, as they covertly manipulated the people toward goals and objectives that kept them in control but were designed to look like programs favoring the people.
However, it did not always work out for the elite. Many of the common people in the nations had a strong faith in the true God and His Son, Christ Jesus. Not only did the commoners’ faith in their God sustain them and protect them from being taken over, they also spread their faith to much of the rest of the world.
Because of all this the elite despised the God of the people. They had trusted in their mentality as their god, and it was often challenged and defeated by the Spirit God of the commoners. The elite became aligned with another spirit god that had the same disrespect for the God of the people that they did. This union greatly increased their power to conquer the people as it added dark spirit power to their intellectual power.
Through their manipulation nations were pitted against one another in an effort to take control and defeat the God of the commoners. Among some nations elite leaders who hated the people of God arose with fierce military strength empowered by evil spirits to attempt to defeat and annihilate the people of God from the earth. In spite of all they could do, the God of the common people proved again and again to be superior and stronger than their gods of spiritual evil and intellectual brilliance.
It became obvious to the elite that the people of God could never be defeated as long as their faith in their God was strong. Living in the order and ways of their God caused the people and families to be strong and unified working together in the righteousness and power of their God. The elite people along with their evil spirit god devised cunning but relatively simple plans to conquer the nations that yet were not under their control. Particularly one most powerful nation that stood to strongly influence many other nations had to be conquered. Read More…
