The third beast of this age is about to bring the carnal church into permanent bondage. The Catholics, the Anglicans and every other traditional church of the past is among this number and they will be permanently separated from the Spirit of God in the near future. The saddest thing is they will hardly notice it.
Is every person within these denominations affected and are only these old denominations going to be impacted? Not at all. Each time God does a new move, besides new denominations forming, the influence of God’s outpouring impacts every existing Christian and fellowship in some way and to varying degree. As such, many of these older denominations have Spirit led congregants who live Spirit filled lives and will not succumb to the Beast. (Although they never walk in the fullness of the Spirit as they have yoked themselves unto old wine skins). And many of the newly formed churches and congregations that have been birthed out of God’s most recent outpouring are carnal from their inception; yielding to the lusts of the flesh, the lust of the eye and the pride of life. They too will be under threat of permanent spiritual slavery. God is not partial to man made boundaries. The key factor is; does God have real authority in your heart and are you listening to God, yielding to His convictions….?
The older denominations will however be the most severely impacted as the leadership as a whole will lead as many of their flock as they can into slavery because they are not Spirit led. We know this because the only reason God pours out his Spirit in revival again and again is because the previous moves have become corrupted and submissive to the wills and desires of carnal men. Carnal man has always worked against that which God has birthed and this will be decisive in this end time bondage.
Of course by the time these foolish ‘leaders’ see the peril they are in and the place into which they have led others it will be too late. They will rebel against the Beast, but by then it will be too late. Right now decisions are being made, unholy alliances are being established and doctrines of devils are being yielded to. In the future these things will become evident in the natural realm and a large portion of Christians will become those of the falling away of 2 Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first…’ These are the the ungodly’ mentioned in 1 Peter 4:18, “And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?” And again in Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge says the Lord.
What are you doing with your spiritual gifts? What fruit are you bearing? What are you doing for God? Or are you too busy to fight the good fight. Is the love and pursuit of mammon consuming your day? Or is it sport, social media or your vanity that takes up your energy?
My advice to every Christian now is get close to God. Read the Word, spend time in prayer and fasting. Give up useless social media which destroys relationships with family and God. Reject the things of this world and hear what God has to say on matters. When last did you get a word from God on who to minister to, who to pray for, when last did you labor for another’s salvation, when last did you produce a heavenly crop for the Kingdom?
John 15:1-7 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every [branch] that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye [are] the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast [them] into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
Yes I know you are disappointed and have suffered failure, loss and hardship. But you are in a war and you have been purged and prepared by God for the coming revival, a great revival which has been prepared ahead of time. Get over the past and choose to revive yourself and serve God no matter what. Now is the time. Revival is coming and it is coming in power and authority. Choose to be of the falling away or choose to see God move like never before. Stir up personal revival and be partakers of the mighty revival that is coming. REVIVAL IS COMING.
We are in the times of the 3rd Beast of Daniel and the fourth beast is on the horizon with persecutions and hardships looming for Christians. Ir you are not close to God and on fire for Him now, you will choose to fall away from the faith with so many others. Today is the day of salvation. Stir up the faith you once had. Stir up the passion. Do something for God today.
