April 17, 2020

The progressive left continues to expand its push to expel every vestige of Christian life in Virginia and every Democrat-run state. If it feels like we are losing this battle, it’s because of the lateness of the hour, and that is prophesied in God’s word.

2 Timothy 3:1-5But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come…

2 Peter 3:3:knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days …

Revelation 1:1: “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants—things which must shortly take place …

The coming of the Lord …

2 Thessalonians 2:1 “Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him …

The world will see evil continue to grow …

2 Thessalonians 2:3: Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first …

Until Holy Sprit (restrainer) and the church He indwells is taken up …

2 Thessalonians 2:7  “For the]mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way …”

And the church will be changed …

1 Corinthians 15:52in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed …

And dwell with the Lord …

1 Thessalonians 4:16:  “Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air …

And the man of sin is revealed …

2 Thessalonians 2:8 “And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.”

Now that, is a comfort 1 Thess. 4:18.
