Signs of the Times revisited

  I noticed that I did not mention the other part of the church, the remnant that follows the redeemer, giving the impression that the latter day church is wholly corrupt. this is not the case, although I believe a larger part of the latter church will follow the accuser, there is a part that will follow the redeemer, and will be largely protected from the accuser and his organization. this is found in Rev. chapter 12. please read all about it. 

Mat 24:9  Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
Mat 24:10  And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
Mat 24:11  And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

 note Mat 24:9 Implies the saints will be hated by the masses, then note that the next verse implies trouble within the church, that some of the brethren will betray their fellows.  even Jesus made mention of this event to happen:

Mat 10:34  Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
Mat 10:35  For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
Mat 10:36  And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

Paul gives you the keys to discernment, one can easily judge between the tools the accuser uses and the tools the redeemer uses.

Gal 5:19  Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Gal 5:20  Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Gal 5:21  Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Gal 5:22  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Gal 5:23  Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

 Pray God's will be done.
