A world of chaos is running rampant as different factions attempt to maneuver into a position of power and control to undermine democracy. A chaotic condition strengthens the opposition’s power to set in motion world domination. Chaos is a state of extreme confusion and disorder which is purposely set in mind to enhance takeover when people are not in one accord and purpose to oppose such agenda.
A certain political leader made frequent use of Christian vocabulary. He talked about the blessing of the Almighty and the Christian beliefs which would become the pillars of the new government. He spoke of his spirituality to the press; he displayed his tattered Bible and declared that he drew the strength for his great work from it. Who was this leader? It was Adolf Hitler.
Tactics today that would destroy democracy follow a similar pattern Hitler used to disunify Germany, after gaining a worship and adoration attitude as its leader. He then systematically began to eliminate those who would not fit into his plan.
It was noted that the Word suffers not because of the violence done by the wicked but because the righteous keep silence (Napoleon Bonaparte). Deception played into the picture in the case of Hitler who ushered in destructive measures after his agenda gained popularity. When opposition was presented it was quickly eliminated and so it is today. The next step was total dependence through acceptance of the previously unacceptable.
Democracy has been strengthened by two World Wars but is being threatened again; not only externally but internally as well. Thank God for those who stand for freedom; having had freedom taken away and realizing it must never happen again!
The religious world is not immune to a takeover by allowing ungodly practices to undermine a Christian heritage. A world of chaos has infiltrated in the sense of blindly pursuing worldly infiltration towards appeasement of body and fleshly desires contrary to the Word of God.
The Apostle Paul wrote to the church at Corinth saying: What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God; as God has said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be you separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you (2 Corinthians 6:16-17).
It was noted that a Christian should live a holy life that reflects the nature of God who saved him. He should separate himself from actions, influences, or people that would attempt to sway him. A Christian should apply the biblical principles of separation and avoid what is against a biblical standard of purity.
A world of chaos exists when man begins to dominate the scene rather than the Word of God. The opposing forces of freedom want to separate the church from its moral foundation (the Word of God); even the existence of God, if it could. As the fleshly desires of man seek to dominate, to do do it has to first eliminate any influence that is weighs against its desired goal; especially the church.
It was noted that there is a need to force real Christianity within the four walls of the church; that destruction of religious influence would proceed much faster through infiltration of the church, its seminars and divinity schools. God’s Word is in opposition to the world that seeks to upset and eliminate; if it were possible, Christianity.
The Church, through threatened by many forces both within and without, will stand! Jesus said to the Apostle Peter (a representative of the church), You are Peter, and upon this rock (foundation) I will build my church: and the gates of Hell (all opposing forces) shall not prevail against it (Matthew 16:18).
Forces of opposition have consistently opposed the church but at the same time growth of true Christianity has developed in regimes that defy its existence. A question was asked: Which will it be Christian Biblical Values or totally secular values?
Many nations today want secular values without reference to God. Deception (a device of Satan and the ungodly) is and always has been out to deceive the very elect; if it were possible. It takes the mighty hand of God; His precious Son the Lord Jesus Christ, and God’s Spirit, to war against the opposing forces of evil.
Scripture reveals: Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him (1 John 2:15). It was noted that the term world, in this verse, does not refer to the world of people nor the created world, but the evil world order controlled by Satan.
Although Christians are of necessity in the world we are not related to the world; its ways, its attitudes, and its spirit is not acceptable to us as the people of God. Scripture reveals: Be not conformed to this world; but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable, and perfect, will of God (Romans 12:2).
A world of chaos should expound on the need for a separation from the world; however, acceptance to such a culture is being normalized as a way of life. There is only one peace giver of a lasting nature. Jesus said: Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you: not as the world give, give I to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid (John 14:27).
The Apostle Paul extended such a concept in writing: Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ; who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present world, according to the will of God and our Father (Galatians 1:3-4). In a world of chaos, established on the demonic nature of man, there is stabilization by the hand of God and His Word.
There are assurances in God’s Word that outweighs a world of chaos endorsement. Scripture reveals: The grace of God that brings salvation (through His Son the Lord Jesus Christ) has appeared to all men (those who will accept), teaching us, that denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world (Titus 2:11-12).
Beware lest any man spoil you (take you captive) through vain (empty) deceit, after (according to) the rudiments (basic principles) of the world, and not after (according to) Christ (Colossians 6:17). The Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust (ungodly) to the Day of Judgment to be punished (2 Peter 2:9).
One is to resist being poured into the mold of present day thinking, value systems, and conduct of this world; with dependence being aligned with the Word of God, not man’s devising.
A world of chaos is encouraged by those seeking to disrupt the normality of life; as they present what is perceived as a better world under leadership of Socialism, Marxism, and Communism; Critical Race Theory (CRT), the Great Reset Plan instituted by the World Economic Forum; Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) transformation; to name but a few.
It was noted that Socialism is the religion that must overcome Christianity. In the New Order, socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches, and media, by transforming the consciousness of society. What comes to pass is not so much because a few people want it to happen, as because the mass of citizens fail in their response ability and let things be.
A world of chaos is being ushered in; through many factions, to enhance takeover of any godly precepts by replacing them with agenda that promises much but delivers little; resulting in bondage and destructive policies. There is an erosion of society that is not being noticed by a younger generation that has failed to feel the impact of such! Scripture reveals such a nature in the building of the second temple: When the builders laid the foundation of the temple of the Lord, they set the priests in their apparel with trumpets, and the Levites with cymbals, to praise the Lord (Ezra 3:10).
But many of the priests and Levites and chief of the fathers, who were ancient men that had seen the first house (temple) laid before their eyes, wept with a loud voice: and many shouted aloud for joy. So that the people could not discern the noise of the shout of joy from the noise of the weeping of the people: for the people shouted with a loud shout, and the noise was heard far off (Ezra 3:12-13).
It was noted that it had been about 50 years since the first temple had been destroyed, and many of the older men (ancient men) who had seen the earlier Temple wept because of the sorrowful contrast. The prophet Haggai wrote: Who is left among you that saw this house (Temple) in her first glory? And how do you see it now? Is it not in your eyes in comparison of it as nothing (Haggai 2:3)?
It was noted: I have observed the movements and efforts of the church for more than thirty-five years; all this while it has developed a great power to work, but almost as fast as she grows in efficiency for labor she drifts into worldliness in one way or another and all because of fostered pride and love of pleasure.
Those who have been responsible for the
housekeeping has not been watchful enough and let the little
foxes creep into the vineyard and now they are so numerous and big that they
cannot be driven out by ordinary methods of teaching and warning, for they
well-nigh have possession of the vineyard (Noah H. Mack).
A world of chaos; even within the church, both an external and internal state, should open the eyes of those being most influenced by it; by those who seek to reprogram the mind towards acceptance rather than rejection. A walking away from the God to satisfy one’s own taste of life creates chaos in itself rather than unity and upholding the Unadulterated (Pure) Word of God.
