But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. Something is calling me to be even more aware of the kind of people who are surrounding us in these last days.
We can look across the ocean and see what awful things that are happening in the hearts of men. It’s such evil; many of us have never seen or heard of in our time. It’s awful what is being done to Christians; what they’re doing to their own people.
But there are many more evil men in this world, even here, than most are even aware of, or paying attention to. The love of money, for power and the desire for total control of everyone else, has allowed these to do things we never saw in our lifetime. At least, not on this scale. It doesn’t matter how many people it makes sick, or how many lives may be taken, how much it poisons the earth, the animals or the trees. Just as long, as we make more, and more.
Every department that was created for the protection of our land and it’s people, has been breached; sold out for money and power.
But what about these seducers? Most of us think of a sexual kind of meaning to this word, but there is much more to it than that. It also means, “to lead astray, as from the right action, to attract or lead someone away from proper behavior or thinking. And it is rampant in what we call the body of Christ. Luring people with the promise of wealth and comfort. Watering down the real truth with that which pleases the listener. Stages instead of platforms, where only the pure in heart were supposed to stand. Substituting for the lack of the genuine moving of the Spirit; the focus on the buildings.
I was reading in the last of the Books today, and I was struck with the condition of men’s hearts. The seven angels came and they began to pour out the last seven plagues; the seven vials of God’s wrath. Go through each vial, and you will see that no matter how terrible, how devastating the destruction, men did not repent. They blasphemed God even so; they did not repent of their deeds, they yet refused to give Him glory. This clearly suggests, just how evil and wicked these people are. “For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets,” Revelation 16:16. The scorching heat, the sores, such pain.
Deceiving others, and being deceived. Controlling everything and everybody; and they are convinced they have nothing to repent for. We cannot imagine the dark forces that are behind all of this.
I was moved, that it was clear to me, that even at such a late stage, men could have repented. God is a loving God; let us never forget, He wants no one to perish.
My friends, brothers and sisters, even family, I am repenting today. I’ve never searched myself so much in all of my life. But even that’s not enough; I ask the Holy Ghost to search me; show me what I can’t see. So I can repent; and turn from every wicked way I have.
I want His mercy today, not justice.
