Topic: Anti-Christ And Anti-God Sentiments In The End Time
We are in an era that is characterised by hatred for God more than any other time in history. People hate God, the church, Christians and men of God.
SCRIPTURE: Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. 1 John 2:18
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The abundance of anti-Christ, anti-God and anti-Christian sentiments in the earth is a sign that we are already in the end of time.
The scripture made it clear that the end time shall be characterised by widespread hatred for God and His people (Matthew 10:22). The operation of the anti-Christ shall be on the increase in the end time (1 John 2:18).
Now, when we say “anti-Christ” in this context, we are not referring to the principal apocalyptic satanic personality that shall take over the world after the rapture. “Anti-Christ” in this context, refers to all anti-Christian agents of the devil. In the end time, they are personalities who volunteer to propagate the agenda of the devil, thereby working against God and His interest upon the earth. When you see the escalation of anti-Christ, anti-God and anti-Christian sentiments in the earth, know that we are in the end of the age.
We are in an era that is characterised by hatred for God more than any other time in history. People hate God, the church, Christians and men of God. It is the era where people consider you a fool or being brainwashed for going to church. It is not a surprise. It is the agenda of the devil for the end of times.
Today, people go on social media, not to offer solutions, but to say what they think is wrong with church and pastors.
Sometime ago, I asked someone who was making such hateful posts against the church on social media some questions like: “What you are posting on social media, whom do you expect it to change positively? If someone, on account of your posts, decides not to go to church and ends in hell, how do you rescue such a soul? And do you think you can end in heaven by sending someone out of church to hell?”
Beloved, don’t be shocked when people pour venoms on Christ, on the church, and on pastors. Today, building a magnificent church building for God is a challenge but building big cinema halls, breweries or club halls is not a problem at all. If they say that the largest club hall in the world can take more than two hundred thousand people in one night party, there is no challenge, and no one will say anything. But if it is a church building, it is a problem. This is because we are in the end time where everything about the church irritates the devil and his agents (Matthew 10:22).
Now, the greatest challenge is that there are a lot of ignorant, ordinary and good people who are instigated and recruited into these anti-God or anti-Christian sentiments and agenda. These people are incited and they ignorantly join this devilish agenda against God and the church just the same way some people followed Absalom without knowing where they were going (2 Samuel 15:11).
Beloved, despite the hatred for God and His church, God is solidly in control and the church is triumphing. So, make up your mind not to be part of haters of God and His people.
Remember this: The abundance of anti-Christ, anti-God, anti-Christian sentiment in the earth is a sign that we are already in the end of time.
Refuse to follow people who talk against God and His Church.
Don’t be influenced by haters of God, the church, Christians and pastors.
Promote God and His works on the earth anywhere you find yourself.
PRAYER: Lord, thank You for the timely instruction to me today. I refuse to be influenced by people who hate You and Your work on the earth. I receive the grace to promote Your work, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
QUOTE: The world system is anti-God, it is anti-Christ, and everything in it is set up against God. That is why, when Christian brothers and sisters assist the world in their lifestyle, character and appearance, it becomes a very regrettable thing.
