And The Nations Were Angry! Part 12: “Woke Christians & Heaven’s Cancel-Culture!”

All this current, “Wokeness”, as well as today’s, “Cancel-Culture” has become very frightening to many in the Christian Community, making them wonder if those “woke-ones” may soon get around to “canceling” Christians!

.

In other words, are we beginning to see a 2.0 version of “The Dark Ages”, in which the Bible was banned, and Christians were persecuted/tortured/killed?

HAS “THE TIME OF TROUBLE” ALREADY BEGUN?

.

Has that long-awaited day finally arrived, which the Bible refers to in the following prophecy…

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Antifa_@_Trump_in_Phoenix_8-22-17.jpgAnd at that time shall Michael stand up,

the great prince which standeth

for the children of thy people:

and there shall be a time of trouble,

such as never was since there was a nation

even to that same time:

and at that time thy people shall be delivered,

every one that shall be found written in the book.

Daniel 12:1

.

Certainly it’s beginning to look that way.

GOD’S CUP OF FURY NOW BEING POURED OUT?

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anti_Trump_Protests_in_Baltimore_(30909224045).jpgAnd even many of those who have been heavily invested in the so-called “Pre-Tribulation Rapture” are getting very nervous about all this crazy hate now going on around the world! Yes, it seems as if Jeremiah’s “Cup of Fury” is now being poured out upon the peoples of this world, as is written…

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anti-Christian_sign_in_Federal_Plaza_Chicago.jpg

.

“For thus saith the LORD God (to Jeremiah the prophet)…

Take the wine cup of this fury at My hand,

and cause all the nations…to drink it.

And they shall drink, and be moved, and be mad (crazy hate),

because of the sword that I will send among them.

Then took I the cup at the LORD’S hand,

and made to drink…all the kingdoms of the world,

which are upon the face of the earth…”

Jeremiah 25:15,-17, 26

.

Yes, it sure seems as if all this pandemic madness is the result of God’s cup of wrath, which He long-ago promised to give earth’s inhabitants.

LEARN FROM THE WORLD

.

“the children of this world

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:PropagandaNaziStabsBible.gifare in their generation wiser

than the children of light.”

Luke 16:8

.

Yes, so often, the things which the lost souls in the world do, can easily be translated into spiritual wisdom and truth.

.

In other words, all this present-day, “Wokeness”, and, “Cancel-Culture”, has about it an eerie resemblance to what God is wanting His people to do, only in heavenly terms.

“Woke Christians & Heaven’s Cancel-Culture!”

.

Yes, should Christians be implementing their own version of these current movements?

.

Listen…

.

“And ye shall make no league

with the inhabitants of this land;

ye shall throw down their altars:”

Judges 2:2

.

Yes, God has been patiently waiting and wanting for His people to have their own version of the so-called “Cancel-Culture”. And we can learn a great lesson from their own, wonderful and thorough, canceling process, as they stamp out their supposed enemies!

“COME OUT OF HER (BABYLON), MY PEOPLE…”

Revelation 18:4

And we need to imitate the world spiritually, even as Paul reveals in 2nd Corinthians 6:14, 17, 18…

.

“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers:

for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?

and what communion hath light with darkness? 

…Wherefore come out from among them,

and be ye separate, saith the Lord,

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Family_eating_meal.jpgand touch not the unclean thing;

and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you,

and ye shall be My sons and daughters,

saith the Lord Almighty.”

Yes, while the world cancels out it’s supposed enemies, so also must God’s people cancel out this world!

.

And while we must do our best to work, eat, and provide for our family’s needs and happiness, we must nevertheless begin our upward, Heavenward pilgrimage out of this “City of Destruction” world.

.

We must cancel it out of our hearts! (read Bunyan’s “Pilgrim’s Progress” for reference to “City of Destruction”)

“Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light”

Ephesians 5:14

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Marines_at_Prayer_by_Alex_Raymond.jpg.

And so, it is high-time for God’s people to heed Paul’s admonition…

.

http://thebiblerevival.com/“And that, knowing the time,

that now it is high time to awake out of sleep:

for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.”

Romans 13:11 

.

Yes, we better get ourselves, “Woke”, and begin to cancel out as much of this world from our hearts, before it’s too late.

.

Because Satan’s antichrist world-system is now getting itself, “Woke”.

FINALLY WALKING UPWARD INTO THE HIGHWAYS OF ETERNITY

.

Day by day, you will find yourself walking, like the Disciples, spreading the precious Gospel seed wherever the Spirit leads.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Brooklyn_Museum_-_Study_for_The_Cross_and_the_World......_-_Thomas_Cole.jpg

.

Taking the lovely name of Jesus, with every word spoken. Walking through this sin-darkened world, witnessing to those who take notice that of a truth, Jesus is present within you. Even like faithful Enoch, walking through the highways and byways of life in this world, spreading the Gospel-seed of unpretentious love.

.

Day by day, you will become more and more closed in with God. Moment by moment, your heart will become intertwined with God’s heart, eventually two hearts beating as one heart.

.

And just like Enoch, when the appointed time of sojourning on earth is finally done…you will walk onward…and upward…and into the highways and byways of eternity. (“And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.” Genesis 5:24).
