2 Thessalonians 2:3 King James Version (KJV)
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
APOSTASY …is when the belief system of the fallen world enters the church. What was recently called sexual perversion is the new normal. Today’s America is like ancient Sodom. Sodom was so apostate that Sodomites even attempted to rape angels, even after the Sodomites were blinded! [What is mind boggling is the naivety of people today, who seem to believe we are exempt from God’s judgment from our sanctifying of sodomy! There is absolutely no fear of God. Keep in mind that we have so much more light than the ancient Sodomites, yet we wink at this hideous abomination. Judgment is coming very soon.] Our president and the supreme court have been working on sanctifying “gay” marriage, and promoting the LGBT movement for years with great success. After the supreme court’s recent vote to allow these “marriages,” the White House was bathed in rainbow colors, thus displaying their consummate approval and endorsement of this decision. Most Christian leaders realize that the next step for those who practice these abominations, is for them to demand acceptance within the church. Many mainline churches will have no worries, because they have already gone apostate. So much for freedom of religion. Church members are scrambling to change their by laws as to what constitutes a Biblical marriage, who can use the restrooms, etc., etc. Make no mistake, those who oppose the New World Order (NWO) will eventually have their land and buildings confiscated, and their churches dissolved, unless the Lord intervenes. The Bible tells us in Daniel 7:25 that the Antichrist will change our laws. I cannot imagine a greater change than to turn God’s plan for marriage on its’ head. We have usurped 6,000 years of human history and standards for morality and made a total mockery of God’s ideal for marriage and family. Many mainline Christian churches have already accepted these life styles which means that the Lord has taken His candlestick out from among them. Wherever apostasy prevails, the Holy Spirit leaves. In North Carolina, people who oppose the rights of the LGBT crowd to use the public restrooms are referred to as hateful. Who would like their nine year old child to enter a public restroom with one who believes they are a man today and a woman tomorrow? Anyone who stands for Biblical, traditional and normal values is labeled as hateful and phobic. Churches are becoming less bold and even timid about confronting these issues.

Acceptance of sexual unions outside of God’s parameters is a huge sign that the church age may be winding down. If this is the case, then apocalyptic events like the rapture of the church and the Great Tribulation could be right around the corner. So what should be our attitude given these circumstances? Should we be sad or glad? The Bible has the answer:
Luke 21:28 King James Version (KJV)
28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
