Prophetic Alert to the Church

There is a growing consensus in the western world which is independent of any specific political party or country—one that is violently against any Judeo-Christian values. The idea is that the moral laws of the Bible have robbed mankind of the pursuit of happiness. The desire is to annihilate the values that are the basis for the traditional family. This is a global movement and will inexorably take over the world and we must be prepared to be severely persecuted if we are contrary to it. 

God is giving a window of opportunity and temporary victory against these forces through Trump’s surprise election and conservative victories in other countries like Brazil. But the reaction to these parties and politicians who defend Judeo-Christian moral values will come back soon (I believe about 4 to 10 years) with renewed strength.

We must alert the church urgently to watch and pray about the following issues:

1 – We must make use of the economic prosperity that is coming in the next few years to advance the causes of the kingdom of God and not let ourselves be attracted to materialism and selfish fulfillment of our own whims, comfort and pleasure.

We must maintain the values Jesus taught us of denying ourselves, taking up our cross daily, ministering to the needs of the poor and the unevangelized. We must not let ourselves be hypnotized by the values of the cultures around us. The money God will be putting in our hands is to send and support missionaries and kingdom workers all over the world. We must see the Great Commission fulfilled!

2 – The devil isn’t worried about the older generation. He doesn’t mind if they keep going to church and defending Christian values. Just like Pharaoh in ancient Egypt, Herod in Jesus’ times and the dragon in Revelation 12, he is after the new generation, as he knows that it is the instrument God will use to destroy his kingdom and to introduce the kingdom of the Messiah.

We must, therefore, as a church, turn our full attention to preparing this new generation. We must combat abortion, invest in Christian schools, help orphans, support adoption, work with our children, invade the universities and instill in the new generation all the legacy we have received so that they will be able to rise up as the prophetic instrument God is looking for to challenge the antichrist regime and welcome the return of Jesus.

    Please, I don’t understand??? In the Book of Daniel, the Bible says God’s Kingdom is like a stone that becomes a mountain and fills the whole Earth. If this is true, how can anti-christ “take over the World?” Secondly, many of the greatest leaders in the Bible were old men, Abraham, Moses, Caleb, and Joshua. Why would the devil not be afraid of such in these fullness of times when God has promised to pour out His Spirit on “all flesh” would not those with the most experience be leaders? Respectfully ask you to clarify Sir. I do totally agree with you that we should be good stewards who tithe the tenth and give to the poor, we must come out of the Babylonian financial system and operate according to the Torah. Thanks!

    Interesting this “Prophetic Alert” has many truths in it but there are things here of concern to me also. We are told here to combat abortion and yet the scriptures are basically silent on the subject … first listed is combat abortion … next is invest in Christian schools. Again another subject not specifically torched upon by the scriptures … finally third listed is help orphans, that is indeed a scriptural mandate of true religion … so that’s good! Point two in the alert tells us what the devil isn’t worried about and here again we have a problem of presumption, in fact so presumptuous as to describe the mind of Satan, being what the covering cherubim isn’t worried about, implying the author knows what Lucifer worries about and that in fact the wicked one actually does worry … does he?… Do we know that for a fact? Certainly not a solidly scripturally supported idea … also the writer of this alert seems worried about this angel kidnapping the next generation and that seems to me a defensive mind set of circling the wagons rather than leading the wagon train right over the snake in the grass on the trail. Love wins the battle and this is love for our enemies who are described as this this worldwide anti-traditional values movement, written about in the alert. What can stand before love? God is love and the victory is love … love for our enemies included … Jesus went to the cross when he could have annihilated his enemies with twelve legions of angels sent from the Father … the way of the cross is not easy … but it’s the victory … the victory of love … the only true victory … the only one worth fighting for … Paul gives wisdom concerning prophecy, first not to despise it because often there is a general inclination to do so especially when some parts seem obviously skewed … out of alignment with the scriptures.
    1Th 5:20  Despise not prophesyings. 
    1Th 5:21  Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. 
    And of course I agree with the Apostle to the Gentiles … prove all things … and so I do … and equally holding fast to that which is good in this prophetic warning article … some seems good to me and some perhaps less than … for indeed I prophesy here too. Don’t just accept everything unquestioning as though it were rebellion from authority, for it is not … Rather as Paul wrote prove all things … that means think about all prophetic assertions very, very carefully to hang onto the parts that are good and the rest? … just let it go by the wayside.

    Normally I’m 100% with articles from Revive. Not this one. While I agree the young generation is important and should be the focus of our energy, I’m convinced and have seen revival stirring among the elderly. These seasoned ones will be able to steward a move of God that is bigger and stronger than has been seen in their lifetime.

      Quite interesting and encouraging what you write Karen. I’m sixty three years old having started my Christian journey at seven having been baptized three times with several re-dedications … As the years have gone by I’ve been closing in closer and closer on the truth that is to say getting past the stumbling blocks of false doctrines that spin believers out of the way into false hopes of riches and all manner of delusional thinking concerning the faith. The lessons have been manifold and costly but it’s the desire of my heart to now utilize what I’ve come to. I was in and came out of the Maranatha Jesus movement of Southern Ca wherein we flattered ourselves back in the day as being what we termed the “Right on” believers for such things like not dressing in suit and tie for Church on Sunday … we were rather full of ourselves to say the least and this I’ve come to realize through the experience that the great enemy is not outside the camp but within and enemy is in us as the core value of the wicked one and this is a full scripturally supported notion … It’s pride, just plain ole human pride that people generally like to wallow in like pigs in slop … Pride’s got to go for the awaking to occur … in fact that is the awakening … awakening from the illusions and delusions of our human pride … for example in the article above; us the redeemed (termed as the traditional value crowd) that somehow we’re intrinsically superior to this evil movement in the world that supposedly wants to destroy our way of life … Well people of the world have always been just that and so there’s nothing new about the world being the world, the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life is the composition of the world that stands in opposition to the high standard of Jesus Christ, being His Church … this worldwide movement that comes against traditional values is just progressive thinking that at it’s core is technology most important of which is AI (artificial intelligence) most of us are already pulled into this brave new world far more than our pride is willing to admit. There’s only one winning edge we have as believers in all this … Love that the world craves and is starving for … no machine can manufacture love, it can’t be bought or sold and the world would give anything to have it though there are those who hate it, for love destroys their self centered operating platform. This all if only we the redeemed had it to show but that would require us to open up to receiving more love from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ … filling up to our hearts overflowing with it … out on the world. That’s the victory with none other beside … Traditional values don’t always truly represent the person of Jesus Christ … Jesus as a religion? Well yes … but Jesus as a person? … I don’t think so.

        I remember those days so fondly….got saved and knit in with men and women during the 70’s who gave up promising career paths to follow the simplicity of the doctrine of Christ and be part of an “Acts 2” body of saints. So filled with sincere zeal and love and a desire to please God. May God return to us to our first love and finish our course doing our first works by His grace!

          Most interesting comment Rob and more than that I’m impressed by your sincerity of heart.
          I would like to ask you a question about these who gave up promising careers to follow Christ … and forgiving me for saying but it sounds to have a bit of a cult feel to it … perhaps not though … certainly not for me to say one way or the other and this is why I’ve asked … also I’m very interested to know what became of the movement? The Maranatha movement emerged from Orange County Southern California, Costa Mesa a beach city in one of the most affluent regions on earth. These hippie kids down there started going to Chuck Smith’s Church and Chuck (now gone to be with the Lord) he welcomed them with open arms, the counter culture kids in a super conservative Christian bastion region. Well these kids got on fire for Jesus and started spreading out … i live east of Costa Mesa about fifty miles and so the movement reached me and I loved it and was happy to find a Jesus I could relate to … but you know the hippies were anti materialism and this was the way Jesus too, Jesus was a minimalist living on less that the poor people he ministered to and therefore they loved him as their Messiah King to make the affluent religious crowd insanely jealous of Him … no brainier right? …Anyway the ex-hippies who started preaching Jesus with power never really lost their taste for “the good life” materialism and therefore the power that was there in the early times slowly evaporated to morph into mega-Church-dom that covers the land in these times as the high gold standard of Christian ministry achievement, which can easily be viewed as a marriage between the Church and the world, not a whole lot different than Catholicism in that regard … the lust of the eye, one of the big three that makes the world go round as the world … the dark eye that fills the body with darkness that Jesus taught concerning … coveting thing, stuff, materialism. The Maranatha movement in it’s early pure form was a mini reformation that lasted only briefly. … now it’s become largely apart of this “conservative values movement” that seems to me to be a circling the wagons concept … defensive … decidedly not going on the offensive of love like it was back in the day as remembered the Maranatha movement … no doubt you know Maranatha mean Jesus is coming again soon and we were living for His return not the “good life” in this world, supposedly we we’re … Harald makes some points I’m in agreement with and I thank my God that he does but other things he’s written I just can’t get on board with, especially his political endorsement of a man with less than Christian integrity of character to put it mildly … a man who’s just about as worldly as it gets, as a champion of Jesus Christ’s Kingdom?… I sincerely don’t think so … sorry to have to say but it’s sadly and pitifully true, just to say reprobate is reprobate … so in this case the Apostle Paul comes to mind concerning prophecy … Good ole Paul always right on the mark:
          1Th 5:20  Despise not prophesyings. 
          1Th 5:21  Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. 
          I’ve proved Harald’s prophecy to reject some of the evil conspiracy stuff and a heroic politician who seem considerably less than, obviously … well yeah the world is the world and always has been … like who’s the god of this world ? I can’t see any prophetic revealing in this emerging evil movement conspiracy theory … fear mongering … already too many “Christians” in this country are out in the woods armed to the teeth with machine guns ready to gun down the one world government … we are indeed to fight the good fight of faith, but not with machine guns if I read my Bible correctly that is … and how about blowing up abortion clinics? Abortion is legal according to civil law whether you like it or not … since when does the scripture endorses the breaking of civil law? What’s this all about? People like a cause rather then patiently and humbly following the teaching of Him we call Lord but is He really? But other parts Harald has written I hold to as good … like let’s think about being less materialistic, I must concur. Thank you Paul and thank you Holy Spirit for speaking through Paul to me and glad to meet you Rob, you have well written.”May God return to us to our first love and finish our course doing our first works by His grace!” and I agree concerning what that first love is if I read you right … loving one another as a family of love in the love of Jesus Christ … and who knows if we get it right we just might win over some of those out from that evil conspiracy crowd if we stop being quite so evil ourselves … But know this … AI isn’t coming … No it’s already here … don’t think evil conspiracy, that too simplistic with good guys and bad guys … rather think AI … it’s a machine that we’re all being made a part of … and machine grinds on and on to consume us all as … what else? … Consumers … Whoa there’s that rascally materialism once again … you see the devil is far smarter then we give him credit for and therein lies his advantage over us … here’s a little prophecy for ya … Not that AI is coming … no sir no ma’am, because it’s already here … what is it this artificial intelligence that’s so in the news these days, what is it really? Artificial just means man made, AI is us, our collective intelligence working to grant us what we desire most … greater and greater security as consumers … uninterrupted commerce with the free flow of goods … is it all an evil conspiracy?… Think about it as what we’re really up against … us as human beings, law abiding human being apart from the Spirit.
