A Brief but Triumphant Message

As I listened to the news today, I was greatly disturbed by two rulings which completely undermine biblical principles and spit in the face of those who endeavor to live by them.

First is the ruling by the Pentagon ending the ban on transgender people being able to serve openly in the United States military. With this continues the agenda of this and other western nations to normalize that which God calls sin.

the crossSecond is the Supreme Court ruling striking down the Texas abortion access law. In essence, this ruling serves as further affirmation on what this nation views as the absolute legitimacy and normalcy of killing human beings in the womb.

These two news items reflect the United States’ continuing descent into atheism, secularism, and humanism. It is the U.S. telling God to “Get lost” and leave man to his own doing. Of course, this is all leading to the ultimate glorification of man, when most of the world will one day bow down to a human being whom the Bible refers to as the Antichrist.

However, rather than dwell further on this, I choose to direct my thoughts to the ultimate moment in human history when all of the nonsense will end, and at last the Lord Jesus will make Himself known to the entire world.

The Bible puts it this way (emphasis added):

  • “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven” (Daniel 7:13).
  • “Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory” (Matthew 24:30.
  • “Look, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him; and all peoples on earth will mourn because of him. So shall it be! Amen” (Revelation 1:7).

So shall it be!
