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.
