THE GREAT REBELLION

TO GO TO OUR HOME PAGE

Today we are witnessing a great rebellion on the part of many in our society, against all things godly.  Those who are takin part in this great rebellion can be found within and without the various churches.     Leading the charge of this great rebellion are certain well organized  activist groups.  Some of the most notable being those who seek to advocate and promote, LGBTQ-ISM,  HUMANISM,  and FEMINISM.  Many today fail to understand the true impact these and similar groups are having on our society at large. 

For the believers the scriptures, clearly explains the true ramifications, of what is now taking place. The Bible explains two critical items,  which are closely #1. Why the mass of humanity is now giving rise to the beast. and   #2. Why there is now a time of great resentment and persecution being more and more directed toward the believers. Not only this but many fail to understand, that there are powerful forces of darkness, stealthily working behinds the scene. 


 


 

Even though we as believers are instructed to love all men, we are also told to stand for the doctrines of God first and foremost.  To stand is not so much a stand against any one individual or particular group, (LGBTQ-ISM,  HUMANISM,  FEMINISM, etc.)  rather  this is a stand for the standards set by God.  The Bible tells us that there are certain basic things that God set up for the maintenance of an orderly society. The scriptures tell us that long before there was the ten commandments, a Bible,  or even a church to attend,  God established certain basic guidelines for the maintenance of this orderly society.    We will trace the origins of the godly standards we as believers must stand on today. 

When it comes to accepting and endorsing the life living concepts, which are put forth by these groups  there is much debate among the various churches.   It is true that the various churches have, in times past, often disagreed over things like baptism, dress codes, divorce, views on the Second Coming, and musical preference, etc.  Those differences, though deeply felt, pale in comparison to the issues that the church as a whole now faces.  A notable example  Some  in the various churches, who claim to be people of faith, hailed the Supreme Court ruling in regards to same sex unions, as a civil  and human rights victory.

Today we are witnessing the undoing of the Judeo-Christian value system, which was the foundation that our nation adhered to from its conception.   Judeo-Christian definition, of or relating to the religious writings, beliefs, values, or traditions held in common by Judaism and Christianity. This is due to a great degree to the fact that many in our society is now embracing the concept of “moral relativism: 

 

  Moral relativism is the view that ethical standards, morality, and positions of right or wrong are culturally based and therefore subject to a person's individual choice. We can all decide what is right for ourselves. You decide what's right for you, and I'll decide what's right for me. Moral relativism says, "It's true for me, if I believe it."  Moral relativism has steadily been accepted as the primary moral philosophy of modern society, a culture that was previously governed by a "Judeo-Christian" view of morality.


 

While this might be expected in the secular world, this conflict is just as prevalent in many churches today.  Many churches are now facing a great moral divide:   Many within the various churches are now softening their stance, when it comes to right and wrong. 


The debate now rages even among churches of the same denomination.  For example more and more churches now find that their members have conflicting views when it comes to the LGBTQ lifestyle.   There are some that  say that LGBTQ-ISM is  more of a human rights issue as opposed to a moral issue.  Then there are those say that rather than this being a civil right, it’s a moral wrong.  

To further complicate matters, many within the various churches had a family member come out of the gay closet,  thereby putting them in a emotionally conflicting predicament.   Much of this change of heart has to do with a message that appeals to the heart, combined with  the coming out of the closet, of family and friends.  As one person said, it’s easy to take a moral stand against the gay lifestyle, until one’s own child comes out the closet.

Some say when a nation begins to change its moral and sexual standards, and sanctions the removal of all restraining guidelines we are in deep trouble.   Others disagree, they say the winds of change which are now reshaping our societal and sexual landscape are a positive welcomed breeze.  No matter which side of the debate, one falls on, one thing is for sure, change have come, and with it, the good, the bad, and the ugly.

GOING BACK TO THE BEGINNING– We are told that in the beginning God created man and woman. When God created Adam and Eve by divine design God created man on a level which bestowed upon him, observant and comprehension skills, which were virtually a parallel image of His own, (though not on the same level).. 

 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.  Gen 1:27-28. 

God endowed Adam and Eve with,  1. Intellect, Thought, imagination, (creativity), 2. Free Choice, (the right and ability to choose),  3. Conscience, the ability to moral grasp ones conduct,  (sensitivity to the voice of God), and  4. Desire. The ability to experience a sense of longing for a person or object,  or hope for a certain  outcome. The same sense is expressed by emotions such as "craving" or "hankering".

When God created Adam and Eve, they were able to be in a very close relationship with Him.  Rather than designing them to be robots, he designed them to be creatures with a free will.   They were free to enjoy all that the garden had to offer, the only restriction was that they were not to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.  Gen  2:16-17.   These instructions on the part of God to Adam, was God’s way of giving Adam the right to choose if he was willing to TRUST AND OBEY God, or choose his own way .   This would be a reoccurring theme throughout the scriptures.

We note that along with the initial guidelines in regards to not eating from the tree, there were other guidelines that God also set in place.  We should keep in mind that only on in human history,  there were  no ten commandments, no Bibles,  and not even a church to attend.   There were no written guidelines, this was the a timeframe which existed long before Moses and the ten commandments.  However there were certain basic godly truths that God established.

LGBTQ-ISM?  HUMANISM? FEMINISM?....While the terminology may be new the mindset and modes of conduct  in these areas is not.   Early on in human history, the Bible tells us, of the impact these mindsets and modes of conduct had.   In order to understand why these agendas and mindsets, is giving rise to the beast, we must first be able to understand the significant role they played in times past. And we need to start from the beginning.  In doing so we will be better able to grasp, the true ramification, of the major societal changes, we are now seeing.
