Paul tells us that the full rising of the beast, and the arrival of the antichrist on the world stage, cannot be fully realized, without their first being a time of falling away. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed. 2nd Thess 2:9.
The Bible indicates that there will be (now is), a great apostasy during the end times. The “great apostasy” is mentioned in 2 Thessalonians 2:3. The KJV calls it the “falling away,” while the NIV and ESV call it “the rebellion.” And that’s what an apostasy is: a rebellion, an abandonment of the truth. The end times will include a wholesale rejection of God’s revelation, a further “falling away” of an already fallen world.
Paul goes into greater detail in explaining the great falling away. Paul tells us that it will involve the revealing of the antichrist, whom Paul calls, “the man of sin…the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4).
In the natural realm, there is no greater contributor to the rise of the beast, and the negative impact it’s having on our society, than the overall rejection of God and His guidelines.
The male role as leader of the family, Masculinity and femininity and the family unit as outlined in the Bible is now under attack on all fronts. Thus believers who seek to stand on these scriptural guidelines are under attack. There is a unified attack coming from,
#1. The Feminist movement: *(By feminist movement, we are nor referring to fair and equal treatment of women in the home and workplace, which is right and should be pursued). But there are those who reject the notion that God appointed the man to be the head of the family.
#2. These items are under attack, by those who seek to promote LGBTQ-ISM. At the heart of LGBTQ-ISM, is the demand that the public at large accept the concept, of acting out whatever sexual cravings comes to mind, without restraints. As noted in the (Q) aspect of the LGBTQ acronym.
#3. These items are under attack by those who reject the notion of the necessity of being married prior to living together. And by those men and women who refuse to walk in their assigned male female roles. Which is compounded by the fact that many men are fleeing away from their assigned role of leader.
#4. These items are under attack by a humanistic mindset, which has caused many in our society today, to now think that there is no God, only evolution, and/or if there is a God, they are think that they are smarter that He: As a result of these and similar mindsets, many today feel very content in their decision to tinker with or completely undo, that which God set up.
#5. These items are under attack by some in the various churches, who questions these guidelines when it comes to the issue of leadership. In times past most societies accepted the fact that the man was the head of the family and overall protector. There is now a rejection of this concept, especially when it comes to the leadership role of the man.
This is the case even in many churches today, where the leadership role of the man is being questioned like never before. One would think that the carnal world as large would question God designated order, but this is increasingly becoming the case within many churches.
As I note in my book, "THE BEAST RISING) it is a sad reality that to publically voice ones disagreement with certain activist agendas now comes at a great price. In some cases to publically voice ones disagreement is now classed as hate speech.
The repercussions experienced by those who disagree with certain social agendas is in many ways simular to that which is mentioned in Revelation 13. It's in this chapter that we are told of the dire consequences, that those who refuse to take the mark of the beast will suffer.
We are not saying that any of these activist is the beast, but rather we are saying that to disagree with comes with simular ramifications. These ramifications simular in nature as those which befall those who refuse to go along with the dictates of the beast. This should cause us to rethink, just what it means to take the mark of the beast. Perhaps it is more than just receiving a computer chip as many today, seem to think.
According to the Bible as the beast is given rise, so will the demand that laws be changed to develop a more favorable climate in which for this beast to carry out its agenda. We are also told that the rising of the end time beast, will be a time of great persecution for the believers, (to the point of being put to death). "
And he shall speak great words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and think to change times and laws; and they shall be given into his hand until a time, and times, and the dividing of time." Dan 7:12.
As the power and influence of the beast increases, so will its demand that men display certain signs, as an endorsement of the beast's agenda. For those who refuse to do so, it will come at a great price. Compare, 16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, Rev 13:17.
We are not implying in any way that those who promote the LGBTQ lifestyle are the actual beast. However, Even if this is not the actual mark of the beast, our response to the LGBTQ agenda, and the consequences of our response, (yea or nay), is at least a precursor, a “dress rehearsal.”
Today if you are in the corporate, sector, if you are in the field of sports, or in the entertainment industry, you know what you’d better say, in regards to LGBTQ-ISM, if you want all to be well. It is becoming more and more evident that anyone in our western society, who does not plaster the LGBTQ rainbow stickers all over himself, his resume and the windows of his business risk the possibility of having his or her commercial interests terminated with extreme prejudice. Compare these characteristic of the antichrist.
He will be able to severely people’s income. In John’s vision, any Christian who does not willingly accept the mark of the beast will not be allowed to buy or to sell. He’ll be fired or won’t be hired or will be drummed out of business entirely. And in some cases believers will be killed. “He forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name“ (Rev 13:16-17).
YOU CAN NOW BE THROWN IN JAIL--- A Kentucky County Clerk was in the hot seat because she refused to issue same-sex marriage licenses due to her stand on these basic guidelines. Kim Davis was thrown in jail. She has since obeyed orders to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in the months since she spent five nights in jail for refusing to go against the basic moral principles our great country was founded on.
We as believers are now faced with the issue of where we do we stand in regards to the LGBT lifestyle. The stand we take will cause us to be identified (marked), as being either pro gay/LGBT, Or as being anti gay/LGBT.
EVEN OUR STATES ARE NOT IMMUNE FROM ECONOMIC ATTACKS. The state of North Carolina North is facing economic boycotts because of their rest room law. Certain activist groups were upset because of North Carolina’s restroom laws. The law states men and women were to use biologically correct bathrooms. The law prevents female students from having to share a bathroom or locker room with biological males. This law known as, “HB2” was passed hurriedly during a special one-day session in March. Most of the attention has focused on the bill’s transgender-restroom conditions: It requires that transgender people use the bathroom corresponding to the sex on their birth certificates, rather than their gender identity, in public facilities, including schools.
The argument was made that men should not be allowed to use the same restrooms as women, where even little girls are not exempted. As a result of their stand against allowing this, there has been a financial backlash leveled at the state of N.C.
PayPal has canceled plans to build a new operations center in Charlotte, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has banned state employees from making nonessential work trips to North Carolina,
The NCAA announced that it is pulling all of its championship events from the state of N.C. As part of her campaign stand Hilary Clinton, issued a statement where she said that the organization was "right to pull the games," adding, "Discrimination has no place in America."
YOU CAN NOW BE FIRED FROM YOUR JOB-- Curt Schilling a former All-Star pitcher and one of the highest-profile baseball analysts on ESPN, was fired for publicly stating his opposition to men being allowed to use the ladies restroom with women and young girls. In a facebook post Schilling stated: “A man is a man no matter what they call themselves.” As a result of this comment on the part of Schilling, ESPN fired him. In a statement, his employer ESPN said "ESPN is an inclusive company. Curt Schilling has been advised that his conduct was unacceptable and his employment with ESPN has been terminated.“
YOU CAN NOW BE PUT OUT OF BUSINESS- Aaron and Melissa Klein thought that they still had the right to take a stand in our great country : The owners of Sweet Cakes By Melissa, have been ordered to pay $135,000 in damages to a lesbian couple after they refused to bake them a wedding cake in 2013. The Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industry (BOLI) awarded $60,000 to Laurel According to The Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industry , the lesbian couple suffered great angst. One of the women “felt depressed and questioned whether there was something inherently wrong with the sexual orientation she was born with.” They said she had “difficulty controlling her emotions and cried a lot.” “The other woman “experienced extreme anger, outrage, embarrassment, exhaustion, frustration, intense sorrow and shame” simply because the Kleins refused to provide them with a wedding cake.”
As a result the Kleins have suffered greatly. Their business was subjected to boycotts and pickets. LGBT activists and their supporters threatened any wedding vendor that did business with their bakery. Mrs. Klein said her five children were subjected to death threats. Eventually, the bullying became so severe the family had to shut down their retail store and Mr. Klein had to take a job picking up garbage. Today, Mrs. Klein continues to make cakes in her home. Today anyone who dares to publicly take a stand for the basic moral guidelines, which our country was founded on, can expect to be subjugated to a all out witch hunt. If you own a business the intolerance level is now so intense, you may be driven out of business. The viciousness of the attacks upon you, your family, your business, etc, knows no limits.
YOU NOW RUN THE RISK OF NOT BEING HIRED IN THE FIRST PLACE--- There has been a dramatic increase of discrimination, and intolerance against those of us who still stand on the basic moral principles our nation was founded on. Most companies have jumped on the bandwagon of all inclusiveness and tolerance for all, (tolerance for All except those who still seek to stand on certain basic moral guidelines).
Even ones wealth is not enough to protect them from this relentless onslaught. Brendan Eich, was forced to resign as CEO of Mozilla Corp, a silicon-valley tech company that’s known for the Firefox web browser. He was forced out after it was revealed that he donated $1,000 to a political campaign in support of Prop 8, California’s referendum to ban gay marriage.
There are LGBT websites which list many of the companies they deem to be gay friendly. It’s not a farfetched notion that one day soon, These various companies Job applications may ask, if you are in favor or same sex marriages, and restrooms which are open to all, etc, If the only acceptable answer if you want to get hired is “yes I’m in favor” what choice do you have?
SHUTTING DOWN YOUR CHURCH?? A LOSS OF TAX EXEMPTION???--- University of Illinois law professor Robin Fretwell Wilson says it’s possible that institutions will be pressured to give ground on gay marriage by federal authorities: Such as the Internal Revenue Service, which could take away an institution’s tax-exempt status. She notes, for example, that the federal government now reads its laws against sex discrimination “to include sexual orientation discrimination, which opens a whole layer of potential threat” to religious organizations.
There is already a push in our western society to penalize those religious institutions, who opt to maintain their religious stance against same sex unions. A CALL FOR CHURCHES TO LOSE THEIR TAX EXEMPT STATUS???? In a stunning statement, Jeran Artery, Chairman of Wyoming Equality argued that churches who do not support same sex marriage should lose their tax exempt status. “Churches that lobby to have freedoms and rights taken away from ANYONE should absolutely have their 501(c)3 status revoked!!”
A very common teaching today, is that believers who are in a right standing with God, will be raptured from the earth just prior to the start of this tribulation. Other disagree, they say that the believers will go through this time of great tribulation. Now this poses a very critical question for the believers.
Should we be preparing to be caught away and any moment, or should we be arming ourselves with a mind to endure. It now appears by all indications, that the beast is now being given rise, and we as believers are still here.
Perhaps the most notable example is the dire consequences those who publically disagree with the LGBTQ lifestyle now face. Today it’s obvious today that people from every walk of life are fearful (and in some cases terrified), to publicly say anything which makes it appear that they disagree with the LGBTQ lifestyle. This includes educators, entertainers, many in the news media, actors, athletics, janitors, ministers, and even entire cooperation's, etc,
It is becoming more and more evident that not just believers, BUT ANYONE who voices the slightest hint of disagreement, run the risk of 1. Being rideculled and called all manner of hurtful names, 2. Being fired off of ones job. 3. Being put out of business, Being physically attacked, etc.
