Fundamentalists STAND against the avalanche of APOSTASY

Latter Times News: Avalanche of Apostasy

Dr. Mike Johnston

I am appealing to Fundamentalists to renew our commitment to Christ and the Word of God given us in the King James Bible. Let me explain my challenge here.

It is painfully obvious the world is in a woeful tailspin of wickedness. Notwithstanding, those of us immersed in the Word of God have much to rejoice over because we have seen this coming for many years. The mystery of iniquity predicted by Paul (2 Thess. 2:7) has now ensnared a new breed of post-Christian modernists who have grown up in a culture where rights outweigh righteousness. You find this crassly evident on the three major arenas confronting all of us: the social front where wickedness is represented as a right; the political front that perpetrates godlessness through vile legislative acts; and the religious front that is so self absorbed it ignores either of the other two fronts. 1

From the Garden of Eden we find the first clear teaching that departing from the Word of God has had devastating results- yea, hath God said (Gen. 3:1)? Those who don’t know the Word of God often find themselves ensnared by pernicious preachers espousing devilish doctrines (2 Pet. 2:2). The Lord Jesus Christ can return any moment to snatch out His church from the earth (John 14:2-3; 1 Thess. 4:13-18) thereafter ushering in the 7 year tribulation (aka the time of Jacob’s [Israel’s] trouble- Jer. 30:7) which Daniel referred to as a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time (Dan. 12:1) because it is arguably the worst period in the history of the world. God the Spirit has precisely documented all these end times events in the King James Bible- which unlike the modern translations- is not missing vital passages of Scripture we desperately need in these final hours.

Let’s examine the verses predicting the avalanche of apostasy that can be seen blowing through the church like a foul wind.

DECEPTION: Tolerating deception fostered a disdain for truth

Matthew 24:4-5  And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.  (5)  For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

Matthew 24:24  For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

Romans 1:18  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness.

 

2 Thessalonians 2:10-11  (10)  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  (11)  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: (12)  That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

 

1 Timothy 4:1  Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

 

2 Timothy 3:13  But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

 

2 John 1:7  For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.


FALSE SPIRITUALITY

The liberal, lethargic Laodicean Church is a pathetic representation of the vibrant body of believers willing to die defending the great doctrines of the faith for eighteen centuries. So what happened? If you love the Book of Revelation as much as I do, you know chapter 17 pictures a woman riding the beast that Dave Hunt proved without equivocation was the whore of Romanism. But what we don’t find in Scripture is the precise path the church took to get to that frightful place.

 

Satan is subtle and everything he does is to denigrate Christ and deify himself. Since most Christians don’t read the Bible and yet want to appear spiritual, few are willing to oppose what’s passing itself off in the church today as a new move of God. In light of this, the devil is using false signs and wonders as an opportunity to marry the unholy to the holy. It is through the tenets of the charismatic movement Satan has promoted unity above purity. Flowing from Montanus to Azusa to Branham, and on to the neo-Charismatic renewal of today Satan has successfully merged Christians with catholics, cultists (Mormons, Tommy Tenney-TD Jakes style anti-trinitarians), Copelandites, Latter Rainists, and many others who claim a commonality in charismania. And believe me, if you watch “Christian” television, you’ll see the devil’s plan in action.  Pat Robertson, Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland- ad nauseum- all predict events that never come to pass and those who challenge their false prophecies are often excoriated for causing disharmony in the body. Here’s the warnings:

 

False christs (anointed ones), prophets,  and prosperity preachers

Matthew 24:24  For there shall arise false Christs, [1]and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

 

2 Peter 2:1-3  But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.  (2)  And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.  (3)  And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

 

False signs and wonders

 

2 Thessalonians 2:9  Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders.

[1] This is a common occurrence in scores of “ministries” as well as on most “Christian” television channels today where charlatan prosperity prophets fill the airwaves claiming special anointing from the Lord Jesus and God’s blessing upon all who will honor them by making them rich. Read 2 John 1:10-11 BEFORE you support them.
