Satan's Swan Song

by: Bill Perkins

 

As we watch the ancient prophetic signs come to pass for the close of this age, most Believers know intrinsically that a huge spiritual change, a huge transition, is dead ahead. We sense things aren’t right. Something’s definitely going on. Many are assuming the Rapture is close. And it may be.

However, let’s face the facts, we don’t know if Rapture’s two seconds or thirty years away. And as we “occupy” Lk 19:13, Christians are being openly persecuted for their beliefs worldwide. For that we mourn while we comfort ourselves by trusting the fact that God is always in control.

Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words. 1Th. 4:17-18



One of the more interesting observable facts occurring in the end of this age is the degree to which Satan has duped the world. Because the Bible has been ushered out of public discussion, few people, even Christians, realize our root problem is Satan himself.

Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Eph. 6:11-12

Our government is not our main problem. Neither is BHO. Or HRC. Or ISIS. Our problem is the same problem that surfaced in the Garden of Eden and has plagued the world since. Our problem is the god of this world who operates in disguise while promoting his relentless list of lies.

Satan lurks behind all things Christians detest. Our shameful public schools, our horrible pornography industry, the deplorable rate of Christian divorce, the low birthrate for Believers, the 60+ million abortions in the U.S., the push for homosexual perversion (God’s definition) to be accepted, our disgraceful national debt, worldwide Christian persecution, etc., all come directly from Satan.



When we threw God and His Word out of our schools, our government, public places, etc., Satan was behind it all, lying through his teeth.

. . . [Satan] was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. John 8:44

So as we wind down this dispensation, expect the lies to become more sharply focused against Believers and their Christian values. Now, more than ever, it is imperative that we armor up with Biblical truth. Satan is winding up, knowing his time is short. He’s pulling out all the stops.

Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Eph. 6:13
