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 to drink.

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!

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 its 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

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”.

THE THIRD MOUNTAIN…CHOICE ‘C’…

.

“Behold, I am against thee, O destroying mountain, saith the LORD, which destroyest all the earth: and I will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and roll thee down from the rocks, and will make thee a burnt mountain.” Jeremiah 51:25   

.

These three mountains are called “The Valley of Decision Constellation Group”. The first two mountains on the left in this sketch are known are the Mounts of Blessing and Cursing, as found in Deuteronomy 27:11-26 & Chapter 28.

Valley of Decision + O Destroying Mountain Constellation Group

.

The valley between these two mountains is called the Valley of Decision, as is written… “Multitudes, multitudes in the Valley of Decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the Valley of Decision.” Joel 3:14.

.

The Valley of Decision is not a physical place, but a spiritual valley in which each person of the world will make up his or her mind, as to just whom they will serve: God or Satan; God’s kingdom or this world (Satan’s kingdom). 

.

From the Mount of Blessing are heard all the blessings which result from serving God. From the Mount of Cursing are heard all the curses which result from disobedience to God’s will. And those in the valley will listen to both sides, and make up their minds, just who will they serve. A very simple choice, right? Wrong!

COUNTERFEIT KINGDOM

Valley of Decision w/names

.

Now that this basic concept of the first two mountains (Blessings & Cursing) has been presented, it is time to take note of this third mountain; a counterfeit mountain.

.

Oh yes, such a simple choice of life or death is just far too easy for the Dragon (Satan) to accept. No, Satan’s main deception in this world is to create counterfeit “look-alike” alternatives; attractive choices. Satan really knows how to complicate and confuse the simplicity of the Gospel. Hence the name, Babylon, which means “City of Confusion” (Isaiah 24:10). A perfect and fitting name for Satan’s kingdom!

.

In Jeremiah 51:25, Babylon is referred to as “O Destroying Mountain”. It is the name of this counterfeit mountain. It is Satan’s kingdom, made up of all Satan’s followers, both humans and evil angels. Satan’s kingdom also includes this fallen world, with all its governments and ideologies. It is that great city…Babylon the Great! The world! Satan’s prison-house!
