Do you remember my telling you of a Christian woman telling my Dad, who was a minister,
that if he ever failed the Lord, she would too, as she had such faith in him.
was shocked and dismayed. He said, "Oh, lady…don’t EVER even think such a thing. No man should have such
control over a person’s soul. Put your trust only in the Lord!"
is putting trust in one you believe. But have you known of persons, including politicians, with whom you disagree on almost
every point, but you’ve been told that if you get to know that person, "You can’t help but like them?"
Now, what I’m about to say is from me, but is inspired from the Bible. I have a feeling that the man
the Bible speaks of in the 13th chapter of Revelation…the man whose number is 666...will be such a person, and he will
have such a personality that whatever he says will be swallowed with adoration. Whatever he says or does will be accepted
without question, and he will make good seem bad, and bad seem good. Isaiah said, "Woe unto them that call evil good,
and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter. And he
continues, "Woe unto them that are wise n their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!" And he adds, "Which
justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!" (Isaiah 5:20-23).
Revelation 13 speaks of such a man, closing with, "And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and
poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads. And that no man might buy or sell, save
he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom, Let him that hath understanding
count the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six." (Revelation
People, we’re living in a time when these words can be understood.
We know of people who show the ability to make you think as they do, and even cause you to agree, in fear of disagreeing.
They’re erasing God wherever possible , making Him "politically incorrect," and even most of the news media
seem to sense no wrong.
My pressing warning: Get right with God. Now.
