Anyone professing to be Christian who sits among a congregation of tares in a church where the Pastor teaches false doctrines and damnable heresies will come to their senses sooner or later, as the Holy Spirit (the Spirit of Truth) will give them heed to separate themselves from that local church (Jn. 14:17; 15:26; 16:13; 1 Jn. 5:6). The Bible warns of the Great Apostasy as a "forerunner" of the coming of the man of sin prophetically written in Holy Scripture (Dan. 7:25; 9:27; 12:10-11; Matt. 24:1; Mk. 13:14; 2 Thess. 2:3-4; Rev. 13:5). What was the first thing Jesus said at the Olivet Discourse concerning the end of the age and His Second Coming? Here are signs that are unique to the Christian era, and they are increasing in frequency as a woman in labor.
"And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, [TAKE HEED THAT NO MAN DECEIVE YOU]." (Mathew 24:3-4)
1. Unprecedented amount of False Prophets (v.11)
2. The Spirit and the Bride say, COME!
3. Days of Noah (vv. 37-39)
4. Days or Lot (Lk. 17:28-30)
5. Sexual Immorality (Days of Lot; Sodomy, Homosexuality, LGBT, etc., cf. Isa. 5:20-21)
6. Apostate Christianity (2 Thess. 2:1-3)
7. Demonic Activity (the presence of demons at the time of the Christ, and will repeat itself at the time before the Second Advent)
Those who TRULY belong to Christ can discern that time is short, and iniquity and deception is increasing at a rate which is unparalleled. The mystery of iniquity was already in action since the time our beloved brother Paul wrote the Book of Thessalonians regarding this matter. The spirit of the False Prophet is working "overtime" in Christendom today with counterfeit revivals, failed prophecies given by lying spirits, and false miracles done through the spirit of the Antichrist and his demonic emissaries (cf. 1 Kgs. 22:21-22; Matt. 7:22; 24:11,24; 2 Thess. 2:7-9; 1 Jn. 2:22; Rev. 13:13-14; 16:14; 19:20). It is a tragedy that the Adversary has pulled the wool over the eyes of false converts and are using them as vessels to disseminate demon doctrines, propagate false ideologies, and accusing the remnant of Genuine Believers as the ones who are the heretics and wolves in sheep's clothing (cf. Jer. 23:16; Matt. 7:15; 9:32-34; Rom. 16:17-18; 2 Cor. 10:4-6; 11:13-15; 1 Tim. 4:1; 2 Tim. 4:3-4; 2 Pet. 2:1; 1 Jn. 4:1-6).
