This is not a surprise to those who are following this prophetic event. Matter of fact we've been watching this event for a while now.
The markers that the scriptures said to look for are now appearing so vividly.
But for sure - to all of those who profess to be religious or who profess to be Christians or believe in God, will be tested to the full. If they are
really true Christians and true servants of God their faith and loyalty will be tested to the full. There's no hiding it!
As we've been saying for a while now - the political leaders of the world will be the ones who will eventually turn against religion. The writing on
the wall is now clear - religion is losing power and its influenced among the masses. It's no longer regarded as a moral authority because of all the
things done by it's leaders, members and the things done in the name of religion (God/Allah). People are waking up to this and seeing that instead of
being a force for good (false) religion has become the source of world conflicts and abused around the world (inspite of the many aids it provided in
times of disaster). Alarming is that more and more people will leave the churches in the coming days/years which will alarm (if not already) the
political rulers of the danger associating themselves with them. They will come to the same conclusion (if not already) that the power is now shifting
to the masses. The influnce of religion to pacify the masses is no longer effective. So to keep their power they will have no choice but to turn
against religion - and take on full authority. They will discard them like a "prostitute".
In fact, this is how God (YHWH) view (false) religion - as a "prostitute" because of their meddling in politics and loving the things that belong
to the world. They enriched themselves from the masses and became drunk with power and elevated man's political organization (U.N) as an expresion of
This is also in line with another prophecy:
“Whenever it is that they are saying: “Peace and security!” then sudden destruction is to be instantly upon them just as the pang of
distress upon a pregnant woman; and they will by no means escape.” (1 Thessalonians 5:3)
As it turns out the U.N. peace and security organization is praparing for this (if not already). As everyone is aware of the preservation of world
'Peace and Security" is its main goal. So it will not come as a surprise if this become one of the BIGGEST issues that will come up in the future.
But right now religion is becoming (if not already) a threat to world peace and security. So again it would not come as a surprise if they turn
against religion and use the "cry" or decleration of "peace and security" as the main reason. Will the masses agree? You be the judge.
For sure when that time comes - anyone who profess to be religious or who profess to be a follower of Christ or who belong to a church will have to
prove his loyalty publicly. It will be a dark time indeed when it comes but there will be protection for the faithful. As promised, God
(YHWH/Jehovah/Yahweh) will protect his faithful people - like in Noah's time, Lot -sodom and gomorah and the destruction of unfaithful Jerusalem (607
b.c.e./ 70 c.e.).
Right now, people are being conditioned not to feel sorry for the demise of religion - more and more people are expressing their disgust of religion.
ATS alone contains a large number of people who want religion gone. Due to scientific advancement - many are convinced that there's no God. Athiesm
is on the rise and religious conflicts (bet Christendom and Islam) are on the rise.
Another factor that's conditioning the masses to this eventual fulfilment is morality. From young ones to adult, morality is no longer the norm. A
huge number of young adults the world over lack morality - they see life as if there no real value. And see the future as bleak due to world
conditions and events.On this the major religious organizations of the world has failed miserably. Instead of educating their members, they use them
for political and social campaigns. Sad part is they failed to educate their members with regards to "SIN". Matter of fact this word, "SIN" is now
a taboo. Good is bad - bad is good - even amongst the religious leaders. Many of the old faithful generation are dying and new ones are not that
interested - they occasionaly attend the churches on special occasions or because of traditions or just to belong. No real power in changing ones
lives. In other words, it's a fascade, a showy display. A very small minority remains who recognized that there's such a thing as SIN and believe
that those who WILLFULLY practice it will be judge accordingly.
So it's not surprising at all that it is happening - it's one of the MARKER! This is also a warning to religious leaders, that because of their
neglect, teaching traditions of men instead of the word of God - not only God (who they claim to serve and worship) but their members aslo will not
protect nor defend them when the political powers of the world will turn against them.
After that the next prophecy:
Her political lovers will lament her demise, declaring:
“Too bad, too bad, you great city, Babylon you strong city, because in one hour your judgment has arrived!” Likewise, big-business
magnates, who made dishonest profits with her, will “weep and mourn, saying, ‘Too bad, too bad . . . because in one hour such great riches have
been devastated!’”—Revelation 18:9-17.
Yes - "too bad, too bad" for there will be no more religious holidays and celibrations to make business, to buy and sell. "Too bad, too bad" for
the magnificient church buildings - no more will they be decorated not be built.
So what will you do when that time comes? What about now?
“. . . Gather yourselves together, yes, do the gathering, O nation not paling in shame. Before [the] statute gives birth to [anything], [before
the] day has passed by just like chaff, before there comes upon YOU people the burning anger of Jehovah, before there comes upon YOU the day of
Jehovah’s anger, seek Jehovah, all YOU meek ones of the earth, who have practiced His own judicial decision. Seek righteousness, seek meekness.
Probably YOU may be concealed in the day of Jehovah’s anger.” (Zephaniah 2:1-3)
