Christianity on trial

As I delve ever deeper into the Daniel going through chapter 11 which dealt with prophesies of Medo-Persia and Greece and especially With Antiochus Epiphanies. Beyond him is the future Antichrist, but he is an echo of what to look for in the person that is to come and cause havoc to the Jewish nation just before the advent of Christ at this second coming.
When I look at this “little horn” I see things that have happened to this nation since 2008 and I am astonish and just how corrupt the current administration is when compared to this that person that defiled the Temple of God in the second century B.C.
I could only come up with one conclusion. Christianity is on trial. God is purging out the chaff from the wheat and seeing who is truly loyal to Him and who prefers the world. As I ponder these facts I am shocked at just how many are falling short in the eyes of the Lord. Not me, for I have no room to comment. You see in Timothy 3:16 – 17 and Timothy 4:1 -5 we are told to as Christians we are to teach, profess and exhort the Holy Bible and to let people know that are sinning they are doing so. This is all I can do for if I do not I am disloyal to God and His Son the Lord Jesus Christ.
Many do not like what I say, and I know why this is. But I will allow them to figure that out if they so desire.
What is important is that this trial, this purging is creating much more chaff then I would have ever dreamed as I grew up. I am somewhat bewildered by the silence of the body of Christ and the horrors of human sacrifice are allowed to continue under the guise of woman rights. I was stunned by the celebration for the human legitimization of sin and still those that profess to be a child of God were and are silent. Most do not see what is before them because they do not read the Bible themselves. If they hear the word at all it is usually bestowed unto them through someone who themselves does not believe that God is real. This I know to be fact for I have heard it in person.
What is to befall those that profess Christianity is already occurring in the Middle-East and many think it is impossible for such things to reach this nation, but in some ways it already has. What must be done is a revival. If this does not occur then this nation is destine to harsher and harsher hardships all because people refuse to acknowledge that this nation was formed by God for Christianity. For nothing can happen without God approval, even our judgment to see if we will awaken before it is too late.
Will Christianity awaken in time?

The duel edge sword.

There are times we go through trials and tribulations. As I have said before some may be a pruning by God to allow you to become a better tool for His glory. There will be some trials that confound and confuse you because they come at you from a direction you did not expect. Usually in these instances, there is another party involved. Someone outside that you do not know how or why they crossed your path and sent you into a trail and tribulation. When there is others involved it is always a test upon both parties or all those involved.
In many cases, it will be something that is testing you to see if you grow in your faith, and let me say on a personal note, that all our faiths including mine own have room to grow.
Here is my point of this post. Even though we end up growing and become closer to God in this time of tribulation we may not be the may target. I could be the other person in the situation that is being tested. It may be the other person having their faith in God worked upon my Him.
Our responses and actions to this person might be something that God can use to make this other person realize they need to change and come closer to God. Or they may just need to go through this trial in their own way, but still your reaction is important.
An example:
The other day I was behind a person on the road that was driving erratically. I noticed that he was more interested in looking on the screen of his cellphone then upon the road. I come to this conclusion by the mere fact that he crossed the double yellow line and had to come to a near stop several time to make a simple corner. I have seen drunk drives drive better. So as I get to a stop light I start honking my horn.
He jumps out of his car comes running to my window and proceeds to curse and me.
My respond. “Yes I have a problem with you. You are texting. Read Titus 3:1”
This reference to the Bible made his eyes widen, step back and then turn and leave to his car, which he suddenly started running to as it rolled driverless toward the car in front of it.
Was I being given a trail? I would say yes, if you knew me before Christ you would understand.
Was he being tested? I would say definitely.
