Passion of the Christ actor, Jim Caviezel, delivers strong warning of the end times and for Christians to separate themselves from this wicked generation.
Whenever things get really bad, God begins raising up His remnant.
In the Last Days, a small group of people will arise like the Maccabees. God will in the midst of the coming chaos, and lawlessness begin to build an army that will stand up to counter the moral landslide. Many will join in hypocrisy, there will be treason within the ranks, but in the end they overcome. In the end, the Maccabees won, as was prophesied by Daniel.
“And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt with flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits” (Daniel 11:32)
. We are seeing this fulfilled in our day. Those who are walking away from God’s covenant, integrating the flesh into their church services. Evil men and seducers waxing worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. – 1 Tim 3:13
Yet there is another group. Those who knew their God and stood up, and were able to achieve much in the power of God, to stem the tide of the evil culture around them.
And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment. – 1 Chron 12:32
The men of Issachar understood what God was about to do, and would be a wonderful help in establishing the new kingdom under David. God never goes for the crowds. Although we may see the need for great numbers to show results, God will choose 7000, 300, 200 or just one man, as in the case of Moses, Elijah, Gideon, David, or John the Baptist to outwork his plan. God’s people know what hour it is, what’s required of them. They do not flow with the status quo. They are striving for perfection, and looking to be used of God in any way He sees fit. They will begin to teach others in the way of salvation. God will use these ones to bring conviction to hearts, and truth of God’s judgment on sin.
The remnant are being refined at this time, and are preparing themselves, for they are born for a time such as this.
