Bible Prophecy Leaps into Open Display - By Gene Lawley - https://www.raptureready.com/2021/02/01/bible-prophecy-leaps-into-open-display-by-gene-lawley/
It’s done! The New World Order is finally on the agenda for open action. America will now have what essentially will be a dictatorship of leftist ideology that points to a one-world government. That is the dream of many in our United States and around the world.
In the results of Congressional decisions on Wednesday, January 6, 2021, we can see that more likely than not, the “falling away” from lawfulness which 2 Thessalonians 2:6-7 speaks of will follow in a short time. The appointments Biden has named for cabinet posts and administration positions tell us much of what to expect, along with his own declaration of actions to come.
A close look at the lack of moral integrity in the Democrat Party’s inner core can be found in the actions of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid during the 2012 election campaign. One day he reported that a “friend” had told him that Mitt Romney, the Republican candidate for president, “had not filed his income taxes for ten years!” He was asked to reveal the name of “his friend,” but he exclaimed, “Why ask him? Ask Mitt Romney; he is the one who did not file his tax returns!” When the truth came out that Romney, indeed, had filed his tax returns, Reid replied, with a straight face, “He didn’t win, did he?”
That old saying of dishonest achievement—“the end results justify the means”—worked without any recompense to the senator, except for the resulting blight on his own character. That “safe spot” where the senator stood to make his charge has worked well for subsequent leftist majority leaders as well for their equally untrue charges.
The position of the Democrats, as they have identified themselves in their actions during the past five years, is to reverse all of the changes the Trump administration has put in place. Those who voted for the principles of law and order, sexual morality, elimination of abortion on demand, justice for all, and obedience to the Constitution as it was written, will see the benefits of all those things reversed and lost in the Biden administration. It will be as it was, and worse, during Trump’s campaign and term of office when constant protesting and every crooked scheme imaginable was employed. Even to a second impeachment by the House, at the time of this writing, and further action expected in the Senate after Biden’s move into the oval office on January 20.
There is a loud clamor among some of the new leftist Democratic majority dictatorship to eradicate all who voted for Donald Trump. It appears that all of this will be fully accepted by the collective “deep state” who have infested the nation’s government in untold numbers.
Now, none of those deep investigations and findings of guilt in need of prosecution and punishment will be continued. Justice will not be served, even though every day when Congress and all of the various committees start their business, they all pledge allegiance to the flag and the Republic for which it stands, and they end it, in unison, “with liberty and justice for all!” I am confident that many of them—based on their word and action—have no intention of living that pledge.
Sounds like quite an indictment, doesn’t it? A pledge of allegiance to the nation and justice for all, just what must not happen if a New World Order is to be accomplished.
It would be very hard to get any law or ruling established that would require any elected or appointed person to submit to a hearing of how well they performed their oath of office after each two years is served, when the results would indicate their right to continue in office.
What does God say about these things?
I have thought much about these proverbs of Solomon and their revelation of the character of God. Think with me for a moment on these:
Proverbs 8:13 – “The fear of God is to hate evil.”
Proverbs 9:10 – “The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”
Romans 3:18 – “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”
Psalm 53:1 – “The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God.’”
Why am I calling this election result such a leap forward in prophecy fulfillment? It is because it embraces all that the leftists have promoted in their love for evil. Is not Lot’s Sodom a picture of what Jesus said it would be like when the Son of Man is revealed? (Genesis 18 and Luke 17:28-30).
Now that their philosophy is in place, with a dictatorial majority, evil will increase dramatically. It is disappointing, yet as a furtherance of God’s plan to come to the end of this age, it is positive. That plan includes the allowance of increasing evil—the “falling away”—so that the Antichrist will be fully accepted when he, then, can arrive. The introduction of the Antichrist will be by the taking away of “He who restrains” or holds back evil until it is God’s Appointed Time for that to happen. The Antichrist cannot come while the “restrainer” is still in the world, and He, who lives in His believers, will take them out of the way of that sudden judgment that will occur. If the Spirit-indwelt believers in Christ are still here, the Rapture has not come, and the Antichrist has not arrived. 2 Thessalonians 2:6-7 tells it plainly:
“And now you know what is restraining, that he [Antichrist] may be revealed in his own time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.”
What is that “mystery of lawlessness” mentioned there? It is that incessant, driving activity of evil that takes over society with even the slightest opportunity, even by constantly working to create those opportunities. The news media is notable at that task by not reporting the news at all or by twisting it to produce a contrary result. But note what the Restrainer is also constantly doing—holding back that expression of evil with godly forces of righteousness by the Spirit-indwelt believers in Christ. Satan and his servants can only come as “thieves who only steal, kill and destroy,” according to John 10:10a. And he can do nothing else. There is no righteousness in him—none!
(Some have claimed that this “Restrainer” cannot be the Holy Spirit who goes away, for He is of the Trinity and fills all things. But remember also that Jesus fills the hearts of all true believers, “Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27), but this is because they do not “rightly divide the Word of Truth.”)
This “snatching away,” as is the Greek meaning, is the removing of the body of born-again believers from the destruction of judgment that is to come suddenly. Revelation 3:10 is an everlasting promise to the righteous:
“Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.”
Throughout the centuries, God has held back the encroaching evil with His own intervention and with the presence of Spirit-filled believers in churches where He is obeyed and served with godliness. The historical church, as seen in the world, is not the church that is the body of Christ.
When that One who restrains, that body of believers is removed, it will be as sudden as the twinkling of an eye, at the sound of a trumpet, then Jesus will come quickly to meet those believers in the clouds – first, those who have died, then, those who are alive, and receive them to Himself for all eternity.
Therefore, as these thoughts have indicated, the events happening in our time move us forward in the prophetic timeline very much closer to the end of this age. The very nature of the overall reasoning that allowed the Biden presidency to take place is glaring proof, in my opinion, that it lacks moral integrity and justice.
Primarily, it was the refusal to openly consider, at every level, the validity of any of the mountains of evidence that a massive, fraudulent effort has prevailed, for which 75 million legal voters will not likely forgive nor forget.
