Can you sincerely say, "Maranatha"?
Do you want to see Christ return to earth? Are you honestly desiring to see the Second Coming? It's not as hard as you might think.
The key issue in Scripture is a satanic one-world government that persecutes and martyrs believers for their faith. Yes, we see church folks getting killed in some places, but those are not genuinely satanic governments, and folks are persecuted for religion, but not necessarily for faith. If you don't know the difference, I can't help you at this point.
We do not have a satanic government anywhere. We have some stupid people building a new Tower of Babel, but there is precious little genuine Satanism in this world. We've been over that before in the series on the occult stuff ("Esoterica" series early Feb 2022). There is a core group out there serving the Devil, but they aren't fully in control. There is no anti-Christ figure.
But we can provoke the Devil to push one forward. You see, the Kingdom of Darkness is not threatened by current institutional Christian religion. As long as folks keep doing what they've done for most of the past 2000 years, he's got it in the bag. There are precious few people threatening his livelihood by walking in the Covenant.
All you have to do is insist on having a genuine covenant faith community. We've talked about the earmarks of that: organized like an extended family household, living in eastern feudalism, consciously committed to a shared covenant statement, and walking by their convictions. That's the foundation. There are other necessities, but you know what they are. We've talked about them here and we will continue to do so as long as the Lord permits. The path is pretty clear.
Start walking it. Even if you have to go it alone for awhile, just keep praying and trusting the Lord. Once just a few people start to manifest the special blessings of shalom according to His Covenant, you'll draw others. The Elect won't be able to resist. And when any significant number -- even as a tiny minority of the world's population -- starts walking in shalom and reclaiming the divine heritage of Christ, the Devil will begin to starve.
And when he starves, he isn't going to take it quietly. He's going to stir up resistance to it. This is the symbolic teaching of the Bride without spot or wrinkle -- united in covenant faith, not any other man-made substitute. When the Bride can actually be the Bride of Christ, Satan will be obliged to start down that final path. When we start to claim the shalom of the Covenant, Satan's going to feel the loss. Meanwhile, the Lord will grant privileges not seen in centuries.
Yes, this is the plan. It's going to take some serious investment of your time and resources. You'll have to start walking in your convictions and all that goes with it. If you do, you will begin to fulfill the last incomplete mission of the Bride of Christ. No, it's not a question of everyone hearing the gospel, that's a myth not in the Bible. It's depriving Satan of his sustenance: you and me.
So, now you know. There's a long way to go before the Father will start the ball rolling to the End of All Things. It will take at least one full generation of folks walking in a full covenant community of faith. Let's get to work on it.
