The Great Falling Away
"Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.” James 1:16-17
"This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin." I John 1:5-7
God’s people, those walking in the light of His Word, are witnessing what the Apostle Paul called the GREAT FALLING AWAY.
(II Thessalonians 2:3 Amplified Bible) Heretofore, we have witnessed apostasy, but what has come into full view is the final expression of a departing from Biblical faith. There is one LORD (Jesus, the Christ) one FAITH, one baptism, one Father of us all – who are born from above. Suddenly, there seems to be a greater twisting and perversion of the Gospel delivered to us, than ever before.
Our Lord spoke of this falling away before He would return and what has come into view is the false church given the name of Chrislam; the merging of Christianity with Islam. What a shadow of turning this is and God is not in it! Ichabod!! The glory has departed! The very first warning of Jesus for end times was, “Take heed that no one deceives you.” What fellowship has light with darkness?
Deception is the word for this hour and the church is in grave danger, even as the sleeping church at Sardis! I Thessalonians 5:4-6 (Amplified Bible) reads: But you are not in darkness, for that day to overtake you by surprise like a thief. For you are all sons of light and sons of the day; we do not belong either to the night or to the darkness. Accordingly then, let us not sleep, as the rest do, but let us keep wide awake (alert, cautious, and on our guard) and let us be sober, calm, collected and circumspect.)
When the Son of man comes will He find TRUE FAITH?
