I am reluctant to share the following, but by the prompting of the Holy Spirit am compelled to.
I have just come off a Fast (the morning of this writing, ( 02 October 2018) wherein my wife and I were interceding against all the vile lawlessness in the Land. In prayer, lament, and worship we have been wrestling with the unrestrained onslaught of depravity and physical manifestation of demonic infiltration spewing from the mouths of the Left, the Right, and everywhere in between in our nation. The only word that continually reverberates within my heart, mind, and spirit is: LAWLESS!
Lawlessness rules in our institutions created to defend and uphold the Law. Lawlessness reigns supreme in our highest LAW ENFORCEMENT agencies in the land. Lawlessness has consumed the LAWFULLY-created good and Eternal order of our sexuality and humanity. Lawlessness of the most horrific, unimaginable kind is occurring unabated wherein the most innocent (those who should be covered over by the Law in every regard), the helpless, precious, unborn children are being murdered-by-dismemberment and sold for profit by our Government….. Lawlessness in our speech and our definitions of basic, eternal truths (girl, boy, father, mother, Illegal, Legal, Evil for Good, Darkness for Light, and Bitter for Sweet) ….even lawlessness in what it is considered to be Human (Hybridization, Transhumanism, Singularity, Neural Lacing, Augment Reality, Artificial Intelligent Overlords, etc.).
This Lawlessness has its root grown down deeply into the mutinous, anarchic origins of the hearts of men; hearts ripened from the seeds of sedition which have been sown from the Genesis 3 and are now ripe with the fruit of Rebellion; a Rebellion that is as old as time, but that is now on a perverse trajectory toward the zenith of an unparalleled epoch…. THE GREAT REBELLION.
And then MANY will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. And MANY false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because LAWLESSNESS will be increased, the love of MANY will grow cold.
2 THESSALONIANS 2:3-12
Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day [the Day of the Lord] will not come, unless the REBELLION COMES FIRST, and the man of LAWLESSNESS is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God. Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of LAWLESSNESS IS ALREADY AT WORK. Only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will kill with the breath of his mouth and bring to nothing by the appearance of his coming. The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the TRUTH and so be saved. Therefore God sends them a STRONG DELUSION so that they may believe what is false, in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the TRUTH but had PLEASURE IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.
…As I sought the Lord in prayer this morning (again, 02 October) and stationed myself to see what He would have me hear/understand regarding this full, Insurgent onslaught breaking out in our nation, I very distinctly heard in my spirit, “ECCLESIASTES 3:2”.
Now, for the mockers, scoffers, and skeptics…this is not a normal occurrence for me; to hear a distinct Word spoken into my spirit as if it were audible (hence why I am compelled to write about it!).
I turned to Ecclesiastes 3 not having a fullness of context as to what was contained all throughout it; and in particular, verse number two. Ecclesiastes 3:2 states:
…a time to be born and time to die, a time to plant and time to uproot.
I instantly lamented, ‘Oh Lord, what would you have me understand?!’, to which I again received an immediate word into my spirit,
“THINGS ARE CHANGING…THE SEASON IS CHANGING!”
As if the thought of Lawless had not already beset me, this “word” has now arrested my mind and spirit unto great soberness. I cannot deny the understanding as to HOW, and unto WHAT, this Season is changing….. “Woe” has been decreed over this nation!
