I have been reading a lot of interesting posts lately about things taking place in the government, the rise of immorality, and a move towards globalism. There is no question we are living in perilous times, and those in control don't have our best interests at heart. Many are very anti-American and very pro-globalism. We obviously need to stand against evil, but considering the fact that God is in control, and we know things have to get worse before they get better, what should we do to protect ourselves? I will still continue to be active in politics, and in spreading the truth about what is taking place, but I know that we can only hope to slow things down unless it is God's will to stop it, and I don't believe that will take place till we reach the millennial reign of Christ.
While I do believe in the rapture, I recognize that Bible prophecy isn't spelled out in a way where we can always be sure we are interpreting things exactly right. Many in the church don't believe in the rapture. Either way, we may have to endure hard times before Jesus returns, so how do we deal with living in an evil age? Do we start living like the true Christians did in the communist block nations and go underground before the government starts taking full control of the churches by controlling our speech? Do we form our own communities like the Amish have done and govern ourselves as best we can? We know what's coming. Do we sit back and do nothing and just wait till the strong arm of government takes full control, or do we take steps now to prepare for it? I feel on the inside like the evangelical churches have a big target on them, and the only thing restraining the government is the Constitution and freedom of religion as well as freedom of speech. A few bad judges down the road, and that goes out the window, barring civil uprising.
I have seen a lot of people sounding warnings about what they see happening, but no solutions. I would love to hear any opinions about active things we can do, not to stop the rise of evil, as again, I believe we are only capable of slowing it as the Lord allows, but in separating ourselves from it so we will be spared when the judgment comes down. Any ideas?
