The End Time is well underway!

The countless struggles of the Catholic Church against many governments in the middle ages—including forceful coercion, seizure of the church’s properties and the imprisonment of the Pope,—demonstrate this insurmountable desire of government to rule over everything God. In every modern society, the government still decided what rights the church has.

Today, people everywhere in the world have to pledge allegiance to the state before they can pledge any allegiance to God. Even those governments established under God are fast removing God from the public life, in favor of secularism. And in some societies, allegiance to God is totally forbidden. The state establishes a religion and forces every citizen to pledge allegiance to that religion or face disciplinary action.

The very unifying entity that we all love and clamor around to get us through difficult times, is the very entity that would wreck so much havoc on our lives for resisting to subscribe to its form of spirituality. Regardless of the immense value of government and science to the lives of mankind, they also represent something sinister—they are the first and the second beasts of Revelation, respectively. And each has its own independent spirit that man can neither tame, nor control.

The world moved away from the paganism of ancient times in which mankind worshipped celestial bodies and images of wild beasts, to the paganism of modern times in which government and science are worshipped by man. In the world today, many citizens have more faith in government and science than they do in God, Jesus Christ and Christianity.

And that is the devil’s objective. He hides under something we all need and turns our hearts away from God. He has been doing this from the inception of the church and has received a great boost from science to camouflage his deception. When the end comes, it will come on the account of these two entities because they provide the perfect cover for the devil, allowing him to remain hard at work trying to destroy the people of God and deny God the glory of restoring them to holiness and salvation.

When Jesus Christ said to His apostles: “I will not say much more to you, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold over me, but he comes so that the world may learn that I love the Father and do exactly what my Father has commanded me. ‘Come now; let us leave,'” (John 14:30-31), Christ was actually talking about the first beast of Revelation; and not the devil himself because the devil has been around since Adam and Eve.

Jesus Christ actually came into the world to defeat the devil and take his authority away and He accomplished this by allowing himself to be crucified and buried. That is why the Bible says: “Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil—15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.”
