While tolerance is preached from every pulpit in America, and politically correct crowds are changing narratives of the Gospel, saying things like there are many pathways to Heaven and Muslims and Christians worship the same God, we must be ready to wade into the great deception and falling away spoken of in Revelation. Those days are here. We must speak boldly the truth.
As I meditated this morning on the confusion, death and destruction and persecution of Christians today. I had an “Aha” moment from God. Every scripture is being twisted and rewritten in order to stop Christians from worshipping and spreading the good news, that Christ has set us free.
Many AntiChrists have risen but there is one that is pushing full steam ahead. And that is the one claiming Christ did not die on the cross, He was replaced by a look alike. This is true, this is claimed by Muslims. And their savior mirroring Christ Jesus is called “Issa”. This is not merely a translation name from Arabic it’s their antichrist. They say he will return in the desert to strike Christians who don’t bow to Islam. Well, I could write volumes on this but my clear moment was about proof. Proof of who the true Christ is.
One thing that we should know and have engraved on our hearts,soul and mind is this. Christ left one clue for determining truth. As He hung dying for a dark world He saw the persecution and lies that would deceive His people, and He in His infinite wisdom left an undeniable clue.
Remember doubting Thomas? He refused to believe Christ had resurrected. What He did was brilliant not only for Thomas but for us today and those who go through the tribulation. He held out His nail scarred hand for Thomas to put his finger in the hole. (John 20:26-28)
Do not forget this the next time the Chrislam politically correct crowd says we have common ground and worship the same God. We do not. And when Christ returns remember every eye will see Him. He will not be in the desert but in the sky. You will not need the internet or social media to see Him, and His nail scarred hands will prove who He is. Not Mohammed, not Buddha, but His nail scarred hands, accompanied by legions of Angels He will return to claim His Kingdom.
These things He told us beforehand so we would not fall away.
23 “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand.
