For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. Romans 13:3
We are heading into dangerous times, pre-tribulation birth pangs, fear, anxiety and stress abound even for strong believers. Even though the Anti-Christ hasn't been revealed in these last days, his spirit is prevailing and attempting to bring the entire world under his domination!
The Black Lives Matter's mob have left a trail of murder, mass chaos, destruction and a possible spike in the virus since they totally ignored the rules of social distancing as they led angry blacks and misinformed and unemployed millennial's on a journey to establish their agenda of total lawlessness and domination.
Just as the LGBTQ-P bunch brought about change to America by promoting the homosexual lifestyle, same-sex marriage and trangenderism in just a few short years, BLM will attempt to totally disband our law enforcement system, disarm the public, and promote their liberal leftist system, which in turn will bring about lawlessness and death to the American way!
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. II Thessalonians 2:8
THE COMING OF THE LAWLESS ONE
The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan with all power, signs and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish because they did not receive the love of the truth that they might be saved. II Thessalonians 2:9,10
For the past fifty years morality and justice have eroded because of the expulsion of God from government, schools and even from many churches! Our kids aren't taught the word of God anymore and discipline is a thing of the past, punishable by law in many cases. There are literally generations of youth, poisoned by years of liberal education and thousands of hours wasted watching TV and video games, some being very violent.
It seems that evil is finally coming to a head with the Corona-virus raging around the world, rioting, looting and pillaging caused by protesters, violently filling the streets with outrage against all sound judgment! If this lawless mob has their way and spineless politicians continue to bow down to the demands of a demonic horde, America as you once knew it will disappear completely! The lawless one is here!
With even the majority of lost folks who think they know all about the end-times because Granny told them so, I don't know for certain as does anyone else the exact time of the rapture, the appearance of an actual man called anti-Christ or the physical mark of the beast given to those who don't know the truth! What I do know is this: I am born again, filled with His Spirit, equipped and trained to fight in the Spirit and called to conquer the powers of darkness and so are you, if you know Jesus!
And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. II Thessalonians 2:11,12
THE DAY OF THE LORD
For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, "Peace and safety!" then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. I Thessalonians 5:2,3
The world changed in one day as a Pandemic appeared out of the east, destroying the economy and striking fear in the hearts of the people! Then the unfortunate death of a convicted black felon by the hands of a cop stirred up the African American's and BLM began to march, a Marxist organization out to destroy America!
As the body of Christ we are no longer of this world! Jesus said, we are to be in the world but not of it! The apostle Paul told the Colossian church to set their minds on things above and not on the earth! The Day of the Lord is upon us with tribulation on the horizon and lawlessness abounding throughout the world as it awaits the appearance of the Anti-Christ!
We must arm up as warriors for Christ, binding the powers of darkness and proclaiming the gospel to the lost and dying! Put on the whole armor of God and war in the Spirit, praying for one another to overcome the enemy of our souls! The victory is ours in Christ and we will overcome in Him because we are more than conquerors!
But let us who are of the day (Sons of Light) be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope (confident expectation) of salvation. For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him. I Thessalonians 5:8-10

SONS OF LIGHT
"A little while longer the light is with you. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you; he who walks in darkness does not know where he is going. "While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light." John 12:35,36
If you are a son of light you are born again and baptized in the Holy Spirit and the very light of God resides within you! As for the daughters of light, Galatians 3:28 says we are all one in Christ! So as Sons and Daughters of light what is our calling in the earth and our responsibility to its people?
As new creations in Christ, we are a supernatural race of believers able to receive revelation from the throne of God and to see through the spiritual darkness that is descending upon the whole world. Twenty years ago, even ten would you ever believe what is going on this very moment in time for a people to want to abolish and disband law enforcement, for a mob to take over part of a city proclaiming possession, and local government won't lift a finger to stop it?
This is just the beginning with generations of liberal children, many without fathers, most never saved, not having received any teaching on Christianity, reaching adulthood with no moral compass, they walk in darkness! This is our time to SHINE!
Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. Isaiah 60:1-3
THE LAWLESS ONE
The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish because they did not receive the love of the truth. that they might be saved. II Thessalonians 2:9,10
Jesus warned His disciples that because of lawlessness most people's love would grow cold and we are seeing the beginning of this, the hardening of people's hearts that is turning them against one another. Protesters marching throughout the US leaving a path of destruction and violence, proclaiming that Black lives matter when in fact no one's life matters to a selfish mob of malcontents whining about being victims and demanding law enforcement to be abolished!
For a country, and an entire liberal Democrat party to sanction, promote and legalize the premeditated murder of its unborn citizens is about as dark as it gets! Out of sight, out of mind as the saying goes, but God sees and is deeply grieved over our heinous behavior and sinful slaughter of His precious children, the shedding of innocent blood! And if this isn't bad enough, their little body parts are ripped off from them and are being sold for profit!
The light of God's word and the anointing of His Spirit illuminates and destroys the darkness! This is our responsibility, not your pastor or some big-name preacher but you are to shine your light in your area of influence!
"I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness." John 12:46
And for this reason God will send them strong delusion that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. II Thessalonians 2:11,12
When people willfully walk in darkness and refuse the truth that is able to set them free, God sends a deluding influence over them so that they are blinded to that which is true! Remember Sodom and Gomorrah, who when the angels of God came to see their immoral city and decide it's fate, they were blinded by them when they tried to rape them, not seeing that they were divine beings able to save them!
So it is today, the multitudes are blinded by the light and unable to see its glory and turn from their wickedness, only to continue to walk in darkness! This is a time for us, the body of Christ to rise up out of our fear, doubt and unbelief and put on the armor of light and dispel the darkness in the land! Preach the gospel, teach His word, share your testimony, heal the sick and cast out demons! Jesus said, "Freely you received, now freely give!"
The world needs to see Jesus in us! Not just a bunch of pew sitters, but born again Spirit filled believers, sword in hand, walking in the supernatural power of the Most High! The church of the Lord Jesus Christ was never a place to go, but an exact replica of the Person of the Christ! "SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF LIGHT!"
That you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power for all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love. Colossians 1:10-13

AMERICA IS REAPING WHAT SHE HAS SOWN
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. Galatians 6:7,8
Riots in the streets, a worldwide pandemic, 100,000+ dead, the economy wrecked and unemployment at its highest in decades with hundreds, maybe thousands of businesses closed, some forever! Why? The sins of the fathers! True, we are all sinners because of what Adam did when he disobeyed God, but we are also reaping that which our forefathers have sown in America, the land of the depraved and home of the bound!
It all began with the slaughter of the Indians, stealing their land and pillaging their people. For years making treaties that were never kept, after all they were just savages! There were many atrocities over the centuries with the Indians, the Mexicans, the Chinese, and the black slaves brought over from Africa! In some cases captured by their own people for profit! It's true America has shed much innocent blood and has been involved in some very heinous acts of cruel and unusual punishment by barbaric groups such as the KKK, neo-Nazi's and white supremacist's!
But, the greatest sin America has committed and most of the country has endorsed it, even legalized it, is the shedding of innocent blood! The most heinous crime ever committed by the human race is the pre-meditated slaughter of millions of God's precious innocent unborn children, many of whom were ripped apart and their little body parts sold for profit! Black lives matter, all lives matter, baby turtles, eagles and seals matter, but not the unborn! Do you not think this merciless act warrants the righteous judgment of a holy God deeply offended by our lack of compassion for His children?
For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness. Romans 1:18
PERILOUS TIMES WILL COME
But know this that in the last days perilous times (times of stress) will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness, but denying its power. And from such people turn away! II Timothy 3:1-5
We are at the very height of hypocrisy with angry mobs protesting the murder of a convicted felon when millions of unborn black, white, brown and every other color child was murdered by abortion and no one even mentioned it! At first we are told to lock down, wear masks and distance ourselves to protect us from this deadly virus, but now everyone's free to march with hundreds of others that will ultimately spike the virus and kill thousands!
America has murder in its DNA, inheriting the sins of the fathers and exploding in our youth, many of whom didn't have fathers to equip them for life and no exposure to the word of God that could change their lives and behavior! America has one of the largest prison populations in the world where hardened criminals, rapists and armed robbers are mixed in with pot smokers, drunks and first time offenders who become students of crime and are let out to rob, kill and destroy and the cycle continues.
There is absolutely no hope for this once great country this side of a Holy Ghost nuclear explosion that will bring this prideful land to it's knees! If America doesn't repent of its abominations, immorality, homosexuality and its vile passions and arrogant boasting, God will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah!
But I want to remind you, though you once knew this, that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. And angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day; as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance (punishment) of eternal fire. (Hell) Jude 1:5-7
HOW SHALL YOU ESCAPE THE SENTENCE OF HELL?
"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly but inside are full of dead man's bones and all uncleanness. "Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness." Matthew 23:27,28
Scribes were basically lawyers in Jesus day. In the 1st century, scribes and Pharisees were two largely distinct groups, though presumably some scribes were Pharisees. Scribes had knowledge of the law and could draft legal documents, contracts for marriage, divorce, loans, inheritance, mortgages, the sale of land, and the like. Today many of our politicians are lawyers who like the scribes are also like whitewashed tombs full of dead men's bones, hypocrites who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!
America's political landscape is filled with selfish ambition, deceitful scheming, pride, greed, and hypocrisy! Making laws that they wouldn't obey or follow if their life depended upon it, appearing righteous on the outside like the Pharisees, they are a graveyard of rotting corpses! They have taken God out of government, schools, and most churches run by greedy shepherds (wolves in sheep's clothing) who are fleecing the flock and poisoning their very souls with sugar-coated mush!
Jesus said woe to them as well as to those today who pretend to be righteous when in their evil hearts they set an ambush for their neighbor, professing to be wise they became fools! Thinking God is pleased with them, all the while judgment has been falling upon the land! Cancer, heart disease, AIDS, viruses of all kinds and now one of the most contagious and deadly, wildfires, earthquakes, superstorms, not to mention drug and alcohol addiction and lawlessness abounds!
"Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of Hell?" Matthew 23:33
