Revival or Great Falling Away?
We are in the end days, would you agree?
If you agree, then you’ll be interested to know that the Bible speaks of a great falling away first (before Jesus returns), not of a great revival like many preachers are speculating. Let’s always partake of the manna in every manner, instead of leaning on our own understanding.
What does the Word say?
2 Thessalonians 2:3
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come the falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.
What is this falling away? Can we see it? Those who are sensitive to the Holy Spirit will know it, not because of what they see, but because of revelation of the truth. The great falling away is a falling away from the truth of the Word and therefore is rebellion against God. The churches will still be very much full in numbers and lying signs and wonders, so if you don’t love the truth but you reject the truth, you will look to signs and wonders, just as those that Jesus spoke of in Matthew 12:38-39.
2 Timothy 4:3 explains
For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.
Don’t be fooled, they will still speak of Jesus, but they will preach a different Jesus. Only the truth can set you free.
2 Corinthians 11:4
For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.
This is a very crafty and cunning deceit from Satan himself. They talk Jesus, but they do not like the truth nor the ways of God, righteousness leading unto holiness, instead using a false gospel and a false ‘love’ in which they use to justify living a life of licentiousness and approve of those who practice such things (Romans 1:26-32). This is a deceiving spirit and only those who have the truth will be able to discern it.
For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect–if that were possible.
If you are not born again and don’t know what it means to be born again, now is the time to ensure you are saved. Jesus died on the cross for your sins and He wants you to be with Him for eternity.
I pray that you will hear these words.
