Even the Elect--Beware.

Tom's Journal.

Sharon felt the need to just get out of the house for a while today so we took the dog in the Ram 4 by 4 with us to Kenosha, WI, on Lake Michigan and went to The Spot Drive-in for some old style hamburgers, and tall cold Root Beers. Then I let Sharon use my power scooter chained down in the back of the pick up truck and gave her 2 -$50's to get what we discussed and wrote down from the grocery store. Yesterday, the VA docs actually told me to start eating more read meat-- for iron, as my tests showed I was down in that Hemo category! I give Sharon a lot of latitude and freedom, but she really needed to "ride" in my power scooter, 'Golden Avenger' which can haul a big body like mine and go fast! So now we are all back and resting/ chilling out.

Back at the ranch, continued from yesterday's post... the conservative. biblical Christians in the 'KNOW' believe and caution the rest of us to just be vigilant and BEWARE of false prophets showing up in these last days when things are going to move radically, and perhaps some very slick, smooth talker who has big time charisma and likability, will rise up from the masses and 'capture'/ hoodwink the crowds who are tired of being ripped off by the present administration and Congress!! At the same time, some how, quasi- 'christian' religionists will twist and contort the true Gospel for a false gospel!

My main thrust here today is about a possible 'swing' to the opposite political side, just like what happened to Germany in the 1930's, and believe me the economic situation is identical and 'RIPE' in America. After the 'apology tour' of the administration trashing America, this country is RIPE for Nationalism and so-called Patriotism. Now... how does this matter to real Christians? It would be very easy for Christians to be caught up in this new struggle and stand-- Patriotism. Yes, we WANT AND NEED to stand up and fight for what is right and our precious freedoms so we can work, live and worship according to the Constitution [that is now being shredded], and we ought to vote for the person who best defends our way of life. But new radical movements can and do 'take off' will so much religious fervor and exuberance that sometimes people jump onto a band wagon that latter takes away the very Freedoms it promised to save! And in the mean time that Satan is 'distracting' us with all of this razzle dazzle, the Day of the Lord draws closer, and many 'main stream large churches' lose their REAL Gospel and identity to Jesus! This is all scriptural-- see Matthew 24... Jesus' own words.

If we were shipwrecked on a small island without food or water, and another ship finally came to rescue us-- would we not be very thankful to that captain and crew for saving our bacon? But the new captain may not have our best interests in mind... but might sell us into slavery instead. Satan is identified as an "Angel of Light !" He knows his time is short and he is making the best of it dragging down and capturing as many of us as possible right now! He is so smooth and sly, misleading humans for the last 6000 years though EVERY CONCEIVABLE METHOD!

It just may be the 'small' churches and/ or private homes of true Christians where we will get the right protection and spiritual food-- because the rest of the "New Order--One World Religion" will be the corrupt false gospel of the One World Gov't. Please ponder on this. Even some of the "Elect" could very well be misled, if they don't walk with their eyes wide open. So... when some biblically un-taught 'new Christians' say that they are Saved, and then sit on their back sides, too lazy to take in the Word of God daily or start following the real Christ-like life looking toward heaven instead of lapping up the goodies of this corrupt world--- I shudder! IMHO, we all need to be strong Soldiers, always prepared, and well studied, for what's ahead. The Master will come when we are not expecting His arrival.
And I don't think I will be watching too much more of Glenn Beck.

I think that the churches really need to define the term, CHRISTIAN, in the strictest, Biblical sense! Now days it's nothing but a 'buzz word' and tossed around lightly-- misunderstood. A Christian is a follower or imitator of CHRIST! Christians would want to know and understand the Bible so well that they can give a good defense for it and their Faith, able to witness to others with ease and total conviction! You have to ask yourself every time.... 'What would Christ do in any given circumstance??' And so, what then, should WE do??

God Bless all students of the Word and followers of the Lord Jesus, and Him only.
