Sheep and Goats – The Fight Is On!

In my last post (almost a year ago) I was talking about the fullness of the gentiles and the times of the gentiles being fulfilled. One of the effects of the fullness is spilling over, which ultimately takes the form of a world-wide awakening. As the spilling initially start to trickle, the little streamlets of awakening start to flow.

This in turn provokes Jews to jealousy (Romans 11:11) and their blindness (to Jesus as their Messiah) is finally removed (Romans 11:25). Once this happens (see the Revelation 12 Sign) an awesome tsunami of awakening happens (see Romans 11:15) and the awakening gains momentum and turns into the End Times Revival.

I believe that this spiritual awakening has already started. I think that we can clearly see the signs of the times. My church, which was previously somewhat reserved, is now wholeheartedly pursuing the Revival. People are really hungry for the move of the Holy Spirit and miracles have become common occurrence.

But it would be wrong to think that End Times Revival means easy times or smooth sailing. If we take the Revelation 12:1-2 as a sign of removing the blindness from Israel, and we have reports that this is really happening now (see this recent episode of Sid Roth’s It’s Supernatural), then we also need to look at another sign mentioned in Revelation 12:3!

“And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born” (Revelation 12:3-4, KJV)

Dragon is a clear reference to Satan, while the seven heads and ten horns is the reference to the One World Government, the beast that Daniel saw in his vision of the end times (Daniel 7:8). A more detailed description of the same beast is given in Revelation 13:1-2 where we find out that it has some body parts of a leopard, bear and a lion. or in other words, the first three beasts Daniel saw in his vision (see Daniel 7:1-8).

As we are given the explanation that beasts represent kings and their kingdoms (see Daniel 7:17) the picture this conveys to us is that the countries represented by individual beasts would ultimately unite to form the One World Government. The same will be empowered by Satan (see Revelation 13:5) and will systematically persecute the church (Revelation 13:6-7).

So, if we are heading in this direction do you think the signs of times would confirm it? Are you aware of the rise of the antisemitism and antichristianity? Can you see the lies and propaganda that have been propagated by the mainstream media, designed to desensitise individuals and destroy their internal moral compass, so they would not be able to recognise good from evil?

Once believers are turned into lukewarm churchgoers (Revelation 3:14-15) they would be happy with a form of godliness that doesn’t have any power (2 Timothy 3:5). There would be no power because God’s Word is not preached and so He doesn’t confirm what has been preached with accompanying miracles, signs and wonders (Mark 16:20).

Therefore, the devil is really trying hard to remove the truth of God’s Word from all spheres of influence (i.e. education, arts & entertainment, media, government, business, family and religion) and replace it with his doctrines. At the moment, he is selling the “easy to swallow” pseudo Christianity, where there’s no judgement and everybody is free to follow their own lusts, even though Bible clearly says that such behaviour certainly leads to death (see James 1:14-15). But people don’t want to listen to this truth, because they want to hear what will make them happy and secure.

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” (2 Tim 4:3-4, KJV).

The question is; do you want to be awakened by the blaring horn of salvation so that you could escape the fire, or do you want to be left comfortably sleeping while the flames are rising up, swallowing up your house with great rage, so that when you finally wake up it would be too late for a safe escape?

We live in the times Paul was warning Timothy about, times when lies and deception of the enemy is rampant all around, in all spheres of life. Take a look at the embedded youtube video below. It’s an eye-opener.

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” (2 Timothy 3:1–5, KJV).

There was a time when politicians where men of their word and tried always to tell the truth; a time when they were afraid that any exposed lie would cost them their re-election. Then they started twisting the truth and telling white lies, and so little lies led to bigger lies. But, how about today? Can you see that nowadays they just blatantly lie and try to destroy political opponents with pure fantasies? Did you ask yourself, when and how did we make this transition? What has led to this and when did the media turn from exposing lies to supporting and even propagating them?

I think it all started with the the fifth trumpet (which is not shown on the End Times Timeline but immediately precedes the sixth trumpet). When the fifth trumpet sounded the bottomless pit was opened (Revelation 9:1-2). Bottomless pit is the place where Satan will be bound for 1,000 years (Revelation 20:1-2), so it’s not a nice place.

It’s like a jail for demons. Opening that place looks like a bad deal for humans. What kind of filthy, rotten and bad creatures escaped out of it when it was opened? Revelation 11:7 says that Antichrist and the coming One World Government are ascending out of the bottomless pit and Satan is giving them power. The father of lies and the original murderer (John 8:44) is propping them up.

So could we postulate that the antagonism against Christianity, attacks on the people of faith started with the fifth trumpet event? According to Irwin Baxter, the sounding of the fifth trumpet coincided with the Operation Desert Storm.

So, I hope you can see two things happening in the end times; a great Revival but also a falling away from faith. This is the time when sheep and goats are being separated. It’s not that God is doing this, but people with their own choice will choose the path they want to follow: a broad road that leads to destruction or straight and narrow path that leads to salvation (Matthew 7:13-14). Sheep hear Jesus (John 10:27) and lovingly follow His commandments (John 14:21) but about goats we read the following:

“Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their’s also was” (2 Timothy 3:6-9, KJV).

This time of separation (of the sheep and goats) causes friction and persecution, so get ready. All that want to live godly will suffer persecution (2 Timothy 3:12). But Jesus overcame the world so we should have peace and face every obstacle with a cheerful heart (John 16:33), knowing that we are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus (Romans 8:37).

Happy Easter!
