Recovery

America and much of the Western World is hurting  today. Evil forces have taken advantage of her severely weakened state and have effected a political coup. The nation is now in the hands of its enemies who are stripping it of what little good remains in it. Their goal is a godless land in which the Christian faith is outlawed and driven underground.

God’s people, once a very strong supporting force for liberty, are now almost without any ability or even much interest in restoring the huge loss the nation is suffering. The liberty they enjoyed for over two centuries is rapidly dwindling away, and still they do nothing.

Evidently their faith still rests in the false idea that we are now  in the last days and the end of the world is near. It is not so near as it was fifty years ago during the “last days rage” that deceived many Christians. They, ignorant of the clear teaching of Scripture, thought that Jesus’ return was imminent and that the world would soon end. They gave up working on the task Jesus assigned them, the salvation of the world:

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:  and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.   Amen. (Matthew 28: 19, 20)

This is nothing less than a command to make this world a Christian world!

The early Christians believed and obeyed these commandments and the nations of the Western World were converted to Christ. Europe became “Christendom,” Christ’s Kingdom! Today, though, they are fast asleep and the world is reverting to the pagan state it was before the time of the Apostles.

One day God’s chosen, born-again people, the beneficiaries of His grace, will wake up. They will shake off the false dream that kept them asleep. They will realize that they have been taken in by Satan’s not so subtle deception and have been disobedient servants. They will see that these are not the last days at all and that they have much work to do.

This rude awakening from the last-days dream will surely come but it appears it will be too late to avoid the loss of freedom that has already begun. The task of teaching the nations will be an uphill battle, one resisted by a power much greater than ancient Rome ever was.

God’s people will wake up one day but will it only be to chains and slavery? Will they remain asleep in their false dream of an effortless rapture until it is too late? Do you believe that Jesus would return to a corrupt and sinful world before we completed the task He assigned us, the task of teaching the nations to obey all His commandments?
