This is Their Hour And The Power Of Darkness…

Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?

When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.(Luke 22:53)

The ordeal of our Saviour in his trial and crucifixion are recapitulated in last days of this present evil age.It seemed as though evil had triumphed and with impunity was boasting in the defeat of all goodness.Where was God when corrupt high priests and scribes falsely accused Jesus and brutally abused him?

This is the situation we face today. It seems that evil and vice have prevailed, and that no good deed goes unpunished. Evil parades itself, it taunts the righteous, gloating in its apparent victory over all that was at one time considered good and decent.

For example, there has never been a better time to be a Mohammedan.The followers of the depraved brigand seem to be advancing every single day into the former “christian” world. Even after 9-11 and the 12,000 atrocities since then, visited upon the west in the name of Allah, Islam has not had to answer for its murderous legacy, due to a “perfect storm” of circumstances.

* It so happens that the West is in a state of civilisational paralysis, having forsaken the “cultus” part of its culture, ie christianity. The intellectual “elites” over the last century have led in a rebellion against the religion that made the Judeo Christian West, the greatest civilization in history.

We don’t have the will to absolutely and resolutely defend our own civilization, having bought into the philosophy of atheists and degenerates. Liberty and the rule of law were ideals that western people would die on the battlefield to defend, or even to liberate others to enjoy. We were not all christians , of course, but we operated out of a Judeo Christian ethos,willing to sacrifice blood and treasure to save others.
But who would want to shed one drop of blood for the obvious lie that is multi culturalism? Who would die so that homosexuality could be freely expressed anywhere in the world? Why would we fight to defend the “gains” of the disaster that was the sexual revolution?

Every where in Europe and America our secular elite leadership so despise our own civilization, that they promote and exalt anything, even murderous and barbaric Islam, rather than our Judeo Christian culture that has brought such light and benefit to so many. Through Immigration and abortion and birth control, they seem to be trying to neutralize and cancel out the civilization that once was.
Truly the Psalmist is right,“the Kings of the earth and their rulers take counsel together against the Lord and His Messiah!”.

The Muslim world is licking their chops, this is their time,seemingly. Like an opportunistic disease, they feed on the decaying body politic of the West, and make gains un-thought of in the long 1400 year struggle against the Christian world.If their was a Charles Martel or a Jan Sobieski, the U.N. would immediately move to castrate and hogtie them perhaps even bringing charges against them for “hurting Muslim feelings”.

Furthermore there has never been a better time to be a Sodomite. From being universally reviled for their utterly degrading and unhealthy practices, Sodomites are the current “Civil Rights” victims of the post christian and post modern world. Now they are regarded as good and those who hold to the long-established and immensely succesful institution oo marriage are regarded as evil.
The inversion of values that Isaiah once warned us is upon us, for “woe to those who call good evil and evil good!”

This inversion has come about because of a confluence of forces, television, the inability of the west to combat pornography, the departure from faith, false guilt about Civil Rights and confusion and disenfranchisement of the former social order.Also a very sophisticated marketing of evil, which has taken on the challenge of making the repulsive and unhealthy, seem good and wholesome!

It seems now that everywhere we turn those who “sigh and cry for the abominations done in the land” have to see up close and personal, the seeming victory of the Sodomite. The ultimate “punch in the gut” is the desecration of the U.S. military by homosexuals. We now must undergo the media “celebration” of the first openly homosexual(I refuse to use the word “gay” for that is a lie!) Army General, a lesbian.

The US military has always been fastidiously apolitical, being the army of a Democratic Republic, an army of “we the people”. There were regulations against soldiers wearing the uniform in the service of any political or factional event.However those regulations were waived so that homosexuals could wear the uniform to “gay pride” events!

These advances have been rapid and demoralizing for those who love Judeo Christian America, Britain and Europe.There are many Shepherds and guardians who are succumbing to the pressure to acquiesce to evil, not necessarily in deed, but in word. Islam and homosexuality are two of the new “sanctities” that we are supposed to agree to, if not out right praise.

It is one thing to be lied to constantly, but we are beyond that. Now the pressure is on to force those of us who resist this evil to repeat these lies, or at least outwardly to agree with them, (to the loss of our soul). We must remember in this dark time of the apparent triumph of evil, the words of Jesus, when he looked evil in the face and proclaimed the sovereignty of the Holy God.

The infinitely righteous Judge of all of the earth is taking names and preparing to come in Holy vengeance.

And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;
When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.( 2 Thess 1:7-9)

This is your hour…. It is given by God to the beast to “male war with the saints and even overcome them…”, but only for a brief and set time of testing. God is allowing evil to parade in all of its naked deformity to give all men a clear choice, before the final judgment falls.

…and the power of darkness… . Darkness is not mere ignorance, rather it is the refusal to see and enter into the light. The unsaved people want this, they have insisted upon it, therefore for a brief moment, they are allowed to build their Utopia.This has happened because of years of resistance to the Holy Ghost, God is giving our societies up to what thay have long clamored for, a godless society ala Imagine, by John Lennon.

God delights in hiding his glory and power in apparent weakness…remember David, the littlest one of Jesse? Remember the capture of the Ark of God by Pagans? How could Philistines be allowed to handle the earthly throne of the LORD and not die instantly, as Uzzah? Remember the cross of Jesus? It seemed then also that all that is Holy,good and decent had been profaned and trampled underfoot, but “weeping may endure for the night, but in the morning, shouts of Joy! Maranatha!

    As I have observed, those who plow evil and those who sow trouble reap it. I have also observed, “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows”. The very law of nature–a seed of wheat sown and in due time the farmer will harvest what he has sown. One seed of wheat, if conditions are right, produce 100 seeds. We live in a world that is burying itself deeper and deeper into anarchy. How sad it is that mankind is so blind at what he is allowing to happen. The essential causes of the Western world’s decline lay in her people, her morals, her class struggle, her failing trade, her bureaucratic despotism, her stifling taxes, her consuming wars. Civilizations rise on a foundation of moral strength. Civilizations are now collapsing because their moral strength is no more. We live in a world that says, that, ‘All truth is relative.’ Jesus, the Son of God says–“I am the truth.” That very truth that He spoke great nations were built upon. But today, even the Church by and large has rejected that very truth that Jesus the Christ spoke and still speaks today. All human beings will reap what they sow. What type of seeds are you sowing?

    Hello Pastor Bill,
    My house church has been studying the book of Galatians recently and I have a question for you if I may? Some of my brethren believe that Paul was talking about Christians who walk in the flesh and not in the spirit won’t incur the wrath of God and are saved.but won’t inherit the kingdom of God. They mean that they won’t have rewards and positions but will live in God’s kingdom. After studying Galatians myself I don’t believe that is right but am confused. I only bring it up after Ron picked up on chapter six of Galatians. Do you have a study on Galatians?
    Thank you in advance

      Yes we do, it is either online on our webiste believersingrace.com, or can be ordered there. If you want it and can’t afford it, let us know and we will give it to you- hope this helps-Pas Bill

      BTW I believe he is warnng that those practice those things cannot inhert the Kingdom, in the sense that they cannot be christians. False conversion is a much dealt with subject in scripture-

      • Katherine says:

        Thank you Pastor Bill for your reply. I didn’t think that those who would practice these things and not believe it was wrong and repent could love the Lord or belong to him. Just because someone has made a confession of faith in Jesus doesn’t mean they abide in him or he in them. I will have a look at your website straightaway. x

    Bill, I believe you’re right on. And the hour of dark power is getting dark. Look at the recent shooting in Washington, D.C. The man obviously had a murderous attitude toward Christians’ belief that homosexuality is sinful. He couldn’t merely just be content to have a group of people disagree with his views, he had to shed blood to inflict his will on others. Moreover, read the articles comments section on CNN and see how people stand up for this guy! Unbelievable! We really are seeing a time when evil is called good and good is called evil. May the Lord come quickly!

    Bill, you noted that by promoting an openly lesbian woman to general, and permitting the uniform to be worn in a gay parade that the military had abandoned the long cherished policy of being apolitical. IMHO: Now that restraint has been cast off, the danger the Republic will face is immense. They have sown to the wind and will reap the whirlwind as more and more servicemen & women will begin to clamor for their own political views to be recognized, spreading confusion and strife in the ranks. A military junta, once inconceivable may become reality. Now that the military is being used to spread anti-Christian propaganda, the specter of a fascist coup has raised its ugly head. The fact is that American Christians will be forced, like Bonhoeffer in Nazi Germany, to decide whether or not they will conform to a satanic worldview or stand for Christ. At any rate it is time for all of us to realize that patriotism, and nationalism, are the worthless concepts of men, and only Jesus saves. First and foremost we Christians have a King and are citizens of a Kingdom that can never fall.
