The Falling Away

Across America the crosses are being taken off churches and the churches are given a new name. “Campus” Some churches are now having services with Muslims and their Islamic faith. This should not be because a true Muslim will deny Jesus Christ as being the Son of God. It is very important  to note that the very first sign, and  the most important one, Jesus gave in response to His disciples’ question about the end of time was religious deception: “take heed that no man deceive you.” It is significant, too, that His revelation of this primary sign was put forth as a warning: “take heed,” or beware. He repeated this sign two more times to show how import it was and the nature of the coming deception: it would involve false Christs, false prophets, and false signs and wonders. Moreover, His repeating of the word “many” four times, which to me indicates that this deception will not be hidden but will be a worldwide reality deceiving many and that sure is happening today across our great land and the world.


As followers of Christ, we can see the  persistent downward spiral of  the church. We can remember  the Biblical prophecy that states that the latter days would be marked by a collapse of faith (falling away), morality and ethics. Another prophecy coming to fulfillment before our eyes. The Word of God clearly teaches that in the very Last Days, one of the main signs of the times to look for will be the great falling away of those who claim to be Christians. Jesus clearly teaches that in the very Last Days, the lost will become more and more blinded from the hearing of Biblical truth, because many who claim to be God’s anointed will not be preaching the whole truth!


Jesus commands all those who claim to be a Christian to come out from the world and trust in what the Bible says. Sorry to say, there are too many people that claim to be born-again and yet they are being more conformed to the pattern of this world every day. 


More churches are closing their doors every day in America while more and more mosques are being built. We are told that America is no longer a Christian nation and the Koran is being quoted more and more from the White House while the Bible is criticized.  We are truly in the last days and to my Christian friends I leave you with this- “LOOK UP YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWS NIGH”.

There is nothing better than studying the Bible, the history it contains, the stories of love and compassion, and the prophecies that are fulfilled and yet to be fulfilled. All my life I have found great comfort in reading the passages contained there. If people would only read and study the Bible for a half hour a day they would see the beauty of this Book. They would see that the answer to all life's problems are found between those sacred pages. And they would also see why The Bible is and always will be the Greatest Book in the world. It contains the very word of God. As an American I believe the Christian principles and values found in God's Word are a big part of what makes our Country great. Bill Patchett
