Lawlessness and the Rise of the Spirit of Antichrist

Since Minneapolis is my hometown, I recognize lawlessness! Five miles of Minneapolis was burned down in May of 2020 and will never bounce back. But, today’s lawlessness doesn’t have to be buildings being looted and burned down. We have utter lawlessness coming out of Washington, D.C.

Lawlessness will abound in the last days (Matthew 24:12). The passage in Matthew is really a reference to the Tribulation, but all Tribulation events are casting a shadow on the Church Age—and this one in particular.

The Antichrist is called “The Lawless One” (2 Thessalonians 2:9) whose rise to power will be in accordance with the schemes of Satan. The root of this evil is rebellion, and we see rebellion everywhere we turn.

Since the spring and summer of 2020, we have seen the escalation of utter lawlessness in many countries as these nations prepare to greet the Antichrist and his administration.

Romans 1 Reprobate Mind and Delusional Thinking

Four of the most terrifying words in the Bible are “God gave them over” (Romans 1:28). That is what he does to mankind in the last days. He gives them over to a reprobate mind where to most people, up is down, black is white and evil is good. Such thinking abounds today.

Once the culture declines to a serious level, God says, “enough”, and rescues His Bride, the Church, out of it all and takes us home to Heaven. He then judges the world for its depravity during the seven year Tribulation.

In the last year-and-a-half, we have seen major leaders engage in the most delusional thinking imaginable.

If one didn’t have a Biblical perspective and an end-time hope, their actions would be terrifying. It is as though they intend for as much destruction as humanly possible. God has washed His hands of many of these Godless leaders and they are recklessly careening into the very last days.

Marginalization of Christians, Conservatives, and Jews

The Bible says that the unbelieving world hates us (John 15:19). In the last year, that has become a harsh reality in the Western world. Righteous people, starting with born-again believers, have been called “extremists”, “white supremacists”, and comparable to the Taliban.

We went on the Department of Homeland Security Potential Terror Threat List if we objected to various Covid measures, or if we questioned the 2020 election. Leftist commentators said we were dreaming of a theocracy. They are partially right. We long for Christ’s ruling out of Jerusalem in the Millennium.

As we moved into late summer of 2021, we saw a new target of marginalization: The unvaccinated. While this is a personal medical decision, the powers that be decided to establish rules and even unemploy millions who have chosen to not get the Coronavirus vaccine, suspecting the safety of the experimental drug, or because of natural immunity.

As we move closer and closer to the end of the Church Age, both Christians and Jews will be under more and more attack. We are to count it all joy (James 1:2)!

I believe these are some primary top signs of the times in the last year. For a closer look, get my new DVD: Convergence: How Things Are All Falling Into Place.
