While it’s not always obvious, sometimes accidental, shielded behind wordplay, laced into movies and television as something playful and innocent or practiced openly to no reaction, witchcraft and occultism is quietly growing within modern culture. Most Christians don’t see it because no one is looking out for it and let’s be honest here, what good does it do to know? We are in an age that denies the existence of God and any higher power world beyond our ever changing science but also encourages the embrace earthly spiritualism, alchemy and witchcraft. A message thats subtle and crafty. Forget God but embrace these things that he hates. The atheists and agnostics see unity between liberal powers that seem to have no visible collaboration and call it “Illuminati” or blame secret societies who do often play some small part. There is a hidden hand but it isn’t human.
Now learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branches bud and its leaves begin to sprout, you know that summer is near. 33 In the same way, when you see all these things, you can know his return is very near, right at the door.
But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
As we witness the evil abortion laws being argued, the Disney lead magic indoctrination, a quiet obsession with buddhism and supposed scientists doing shamanic dances at Cern, we can be quite sure that this is the most evil state man has been in during this current age. Satan has ransacked marriage, the roles of men and women within the family unit, chastity between husbands and wives and now gender is being uprooted and overturned. Now truth itself is no longer important as we witness politicians and lawmakers state lie after lie to societies who no longer seem to care. From the pulpits that are still rooted in the word the same message can be heard. Get ready, be ready, get your self in order as prophecies and signs fall into place in a way never seen before. As Christ tells us, we will know just as the branches know summer is nearing that the end of the age is soon upon us.
It’s very important to consider every single word of the olivette discourse though and not just go hands off. God left us his brilliant word that we may know Him and every word is perfect, true and prepares us for these times. Eating, drinking, marrying and giving in marriage until the day that God called Noah into the Ark tells us that it will be a day like any other but thats minor. What’s important to understand is that the Bible is not just prophetic in its word but also in its structure. The Old Testament we see God give us every type of man from strong to wise to weak to judges and kings and the failure is consistent. We cannot do it alone and are very much in need of saving. Not only this but to have our sins reproved in the light that is Christ as we accept the substitutionary atonement of His sacrifice on the cross at Calgary. We need His intervention as mankind as societies are hopelessly weak and unable to resist Satans influence of Sin. We will fail simply fail over and over.
In Eden The Fall of man in Genesis shows in perfect parallel the manner in which we have arrived where we are.
The Serpent confuses Eve with an intentionally convoluted question…
“Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”
We have all heard how the serpent hypnotises them at some point be it Bible classes at school or something else and then dived into our Bible to find no mention of hypnotism. Conversational hypnosis is a cunning method whereby you use subtly conflicting statements that when looked at as a whole appear logical. We have a crafty enemy who can conjure deceptions on a level beyond all humans. As Eve responds and adds to the word, “not must we touch it”, the Serpent then speaks in half truth as Gods word is altered and deception through that accidental departure from Truth becomes inevitable.
As Satan tells Eve that she will be as God knowing good and evil he speaks no lies and when he assures that “she will not surely die” on account of her own addition to the word he is again working off that small addition. Confusion leads to error. Error leads to deception and as she imagines herself a Goddess his wicked work is done and she eats.
What’s often overlooked is the role of Adam in this interchange. I’m sure we all think of her running to find him in order to trick him into also eating but if we read closely this is untrue.
And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
He stands by and allows Eve to be fooled into her vanity driven lust for a position of glory and power as God has. She sees herself a Goddess and cannot then resist but this is not before she initially speak in obedience.
Adam however does nothing. He is standing by and allowing this when God instructed him to tend to the garden and therefore lead since he alone was told of the forbidden fruit.
We are told that Eve is made of mans rib but this is a convenient translation and the Hebrew is actually closer to a “side”. What’s important is that God removes something of Adam which then becomes Eve. They are incomplete alone as Eve is made from what was removed from Adam and Even lacks what’s left in Adam. Don’t overthink that, just know that God created Man and Woman to be incomplete without the other. No children can be made and no true companionship can be found outside of each other. They are equally culpable for the fall.
As we look at our current world we have small but noisy pockets of unhappy aggressive women speaking of imaginary oppression by men. And men are not only standing by as quotas dictate that women take leadership roles across society while we leave the media to raise our children. Again, its that very same joint effort. Satan unbelieving woman with promises of power and authority over men through deceptive doctrines and modern witchcraft spellbinds her into believing she can be a Goddess. And men stand by.
When God addresses Adam and Eve after the fall we can see this very thing set out before us.
And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
The crucifixion and return of Christ are the bitten heal and the bruised head as Satans sin becomes the very thing that Christ sacrifices himself for to save us. But he is then stamped down by that same heal as Christ returns. The Alpha and the Omega, beginning and end. God places his plan of salvation through substitutionary atonement in a single verse right at the very beginning. Perfect.
As he addresses the woman he tells her that she will increase her pain in childbirth along with her emotions. Lastly, he tells her that she will desire for her husband but he will rule over her. The desire isn’t for Him directly though, it’s actually for who he is as the head of the family and the leadership role. She will want that position in her heart but the man will always hold that position.
Christ is coming but this doesn’t mean that we should simply give up. Men of a different kind are needed. Men who show that Biblical dedication to scripture who will show true leadership and are worthy of the respect of their wives who are then loved in return creating the perfect complete unity that God intended. This largely female driven increase in witchcraft is as much the fault of men as it was back in Eden. Standing by and allowing evil to deceive our women.
So, what does scripture tell us about how close we are to His coming? The divine Biblical chiastic structure and Christs own words about it being like the days of Noah demonstrate that this age is nearly over. Innocent babies are murdered in the womb by the million year on year and men have stood back and allowed our women to eat of the forbidden fruits of alchemy and witchcraft. Be ready, the serpent will soon make an appearance but rejoice.
Christ is coming to save His flock.
