      SWORDS Bible Study: What Is Going On?

      2Ti 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
      What Is Going On?
      The same old thing, but it seems in ‘your face’ blatant evil of late! Wicked appears to be working overtime in the children of disobedience. Yes, I believe there are times that are more evil than others, and this last year in our own country and around the world I think, is one of those times. We see the chaos on T.V., Facebook, Internet, Tweeter et al, and perhaps in your own town and streets. We see not only what these mediums WANT us to see, but also a lot of what is truly happening.
      I am acknowledging the confusion and the propagation of evil in our current world. And, we see that the Lord has made this clear to us, long before we had news to watch that this is happening!
      2Ti_3:13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
      Eph 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
      Remember, before we believed, we TOO were the children of disobedience and were by nature the children of wrath.
      Eph 2:3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
      Satan is the “prince of the power of the air” (Ep 2:2) and he rules over the world and the people in it who are UNBELIEVERS. They are caught in the snare of the devil!
      2Ti 2:26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
      Believers however, are no longer under the power and rule of Satan, because the moment we believed 1 Cor 15:1-4 we were delivered from the power of darkness and were translated into the kingdom of His dear Son! We are redeemed by His blood and have forgiveness of all past, present and future sins!
      Col 1:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
      Col 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
      THIS is what is going on:
      Satan is STILL working against God.
      He is STILL working to keep people in unbelief, denying God and His word.
      Satan is the master of lies, conflict, confusion, chaos and all evil.
      The unbeliever follows the “god of this world” (2 Cor 4:4) to their destruction, death and punishment in Hell for eternity. They make the choice to follow their “god”, which is their belly, whose glory is in their shame, their own minds, pleasures and worldly things, denying the truth of God.
      Satan’s biggest job is to corrupt the doctrines of God. And we see those who believe not God’s doctrines, but the corrupted doctrines of men!
      Php_3:19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)
      Rom_16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
      The majority of the world has been blinded by the god of this world because of unbelief.
      2Co 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
      2Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
      THIS is what is going on.
      So, WHAT do WE do during these times?
      What are we to do? What is our role, our answer? What is our plan while our own country and others are under such attack, by those forces that have a different agenda for the people in this world?
      EXACTLY the SAME as it has always been as a BELIEVER…only I hope with more dedication! Time is always short, because today, NOW IS the day of salvation!
      2Co_6:2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)
      I am a citizen of the United States of America in my flesh…nevertheless, I am a citizen of heaven in my spirit.
      I am an Ambassador for Christ in both my flesh and my spirit.
      ALL Believers are Ambassadors for Christ. (2 Cor 5:20)
      We are to bring the heavenly message of grace and reconciliation between God and man to all we can, while we are here on earth, working on assignment from the Lord.
      Our assignment is to SPREAD the good news! What is the good news we have been committed to?
      2Co_5:18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
      2Co_5:19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
      Remember, salvation is a free gift…no works needed to be saved or to stay saved.
      Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
      Eph 2:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
      We have a two-fold mission. Not only to share the gospel with the lost, but also to make ALL men see (even believers who do not understand rightly dividing the word of truth) those who are not saved, and those who ARE saved and know nothing of the mystery of Christ.
      Eph 3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:
      And just as the keeper of the prison asked our Apostle Paul how to be saved… WE answer in kind:
      Act 16:30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
      Act 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
      THIS is OUR role, OUR answer and OUR mission. The only way there can be effective change. ONE soul at a time.
      Give the ONLY gospel that has the POWER to stablish one. The gospel of the grace of God as given to the Apostle Paul by the risen Jesus Christ for us today.
      Rom_16:25 Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,
      THIS is why YOU are still here. Make good use of YOUR time! Stand strong in the will of God for your life!
