The Utopian nightmare

The occult inspiration of the enlightenment in Europe between the 17th and 18th century has been responsible for millions of people being drawn into Gnostic style philosophies and sciences. The principal focus of this revolution was in social sciences such as economics and psychiatry.

Many idealists at this time held a genuine belief that mankind was capable of forging himself a utopian dream based, not upon biblical truths, but on occult philosophies derived from the practice of freemasonry, rosicrucianism and alchemy.

The new sciences became a replacement for traditional Christian faith and many of those who still professed Christianity could be more accurately described as pseudo or Gnostic Christians. The principals of the enlightenment were almost all connected to some elite secret society whose goals and motives were not the common good of humanity, but the establishment of a world system of government grounded in occult beliefs.

The satanic nature of the utopian dream can be witnessed in the end results of many of the programs initiated these men.

The writings of Charles Darwin have not only been used as a basis for the argument that all life evolved naturally, but, together with Thomas Malthus’s pseudo scientific studies into population growth and the sustainability of food supplies, gave birth to the evil science of “Social Darwinism” by which it was deemed acceptable to wipe out the weaker members of the human race.

Adolf Hitlers Nazi government were not the only enthusiasts for such an inhumane and barbaric belief. Most of Europe, North America and Australia embraced Social Darwinism and its core philosophy remains at the heart of governmental decisions to this day.

It is not hard to understand that the utopian dream espoused by these satanic men is a nightmare for the majority of the population of the world.

The Bible tells us Kingdom of God is the only utopia that will remain forever.
We are encouraged to give up everything we have in order to enter in to it.
Jesus has made it possible through His death and resurrection. We only need to believe in Him.

God bless,

Pete

  1. Unless my knowledge of history is mistaken – the magnitude of earthquakes are not currently at their worst. Famines are not at their worst. Wars are not at their worst. Evil empires are not at their worst. Apostasy in the Church is not at its worst.

    But even if these evils do reach unprecedented levels in our generation, we can only compare it with the past. We can’t say the situation will never improve again. Or we can’t say whether a future generation won’t be far worse than ours which will make ours seem insignificant in comparison.

    In other words, can we really look at current affairs and deduce that ours has to be the last generation? Anyone else who tried to do that was found to be mistaken.

    I wonder if the cause of this repeated mistake could be the failure to consider the possibility that the signs spoken of in the Olivet discourse may not be exclusively about the Second Coming – but some of the signs may be about the imminent fall of Jerusalem, which occurred circa AD70.

    I’m trying to keep in mind that in the Olivet discourse Jesus was answering three questions, not one: the disciples had asked Him about the destruction of the Temple, AND about His coming, AND about the end of the world. So apparently Jesus was not only giving the signs of His second coming – He was also giving the signs of the destruction of the Temple. Is it possible therefore that some of the ‘signs’ need to be understood in that context?

    In the Olivet discourse it seems Jesus was helping the disciples make sense of what was soon to happen to earthly Jerusalem during the Church age and right up until His coming. Regarding the destruction of the Temple – the earthquakes, famines, wars and deception were only early signs, like early contractions. The Book of Acts describes some of these events. The final sign would be the siege of Jerusalem. Believers were then to flee the area. Much of this apparently happened circa AD67-70. Not one stone of the Temple was left standing upon another, just as Jesus said.

    And notice that at least one of the signs was an ONGOING SIGN which has now been in place for 1,938 years since the year AD70 when the Jews were deported all around the world. Ever since then Jerusalem is being “trodden underfoot by Gentiles”. Jesus said this situation will last “until the times [years] of the Gentiles be fulfilled”. These were the “the days of vengeance”. Jerusalem has been “in bondage with her children” and the “overspreading of desolations” has lasted many centuries so far. No-one except the Father knows when the times [years] of the Gentiles will be fulfilled. “Until how long?” Isaiah asked, and it was revealed to him that a remnant who believe will be saved. Meanwhile the Gentiles are being added to His bride. But no-one knows when the years of the Gentiles will be fulfilled. Even Jesus said He doesn’t know the day nor the hour.

    The fall of Jerusalem serves as the biggest sign to all generations that these are the “last times”. The entire Church age is called “the last days” beginning on the day of Pentecost. Meanwhile this Gospel of the Kingdom has been and continues to be preached among all nations, and then the end shall come. Even in Paul’s day the Gospel was “preached to every creature under heaven” in Biblical terms.

    So doesn’t that mean that the Second Coming could by rights have occurred at any time after those events? and couldn’t it now occur at any time? and doesn’t it also explain why preachers always make a mistake if they regard earthquakes, famines, wars, evil empires and apostasy in their own generation as signs that theirs must be the terminal generation?

    Didn’t a great falling away already occur? didn’t men already give heed to doctrines of devils and seducing spirits forbidding to marry and to eat meats etc – which led to the Dark Ages?

    And as for the man of sin – even if it is yet to be a future event, the Scripture is still clear that that Wicked cannot be revealed “until he who now letteth be taken out of the way.” Therefore unless we know and are sure that the restrainer has been removed, how can we say that the man of lawlessness is certain to be revealed in our generation? The evils of our generation can only be but a continuation of the regular cycles of evil – unless we know for sure that the restrainer has been removed. Only then can we say with certainty that the evil of our generation will culminate in the revealing of that Wicked in our generation. Do you know the restrainer has been removed? how can you be sure? If you do not know for sure that the restrainer has been removed, then contemporary events are no indications that yours must be the terminal generation, and therefore you cannot assert that the contemporary rise of evil in your generation must result in the revealing of that Wicked in your generation.

    Perhaps all these things are indeed yet future. But the difficulty with that view is it might require the application of certain hermeneutics which I’m yet to find Biblical precedents for, such as the so-called ‘double fulfillment’ and ‘gap theory’.

    I simply don’t know for sure. I don’t understand eschatology like I ought to. And Paul said, “If any man thinketh he knoweth anything, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know”. So I’m not trying to propose any alternative views. I’m simply stating that no matter what your view of eschatology is, it’s as difficult to assert that Christ MUST come in our generation as it would have been for earlier generations to assert that Christ COULD NOT come in theirs – unless of course we think our generation is somehow privy to extra revelation which they didn’t have access to.

    So where does this leave us? what’s the point to all this? Surely it means we can preach the Gospel without claiming we are the last generation. There’s nothing to gain by making that claim. The Gospel is powerful enough as it stands. The message of the Gospel can be the same today as it was in the early Church: Jesus is coming soon; He is coming in an hour when you think not; He is coming quickly; the signs are here; these are the last days (the fall of Jerusalem is the biggest sign of that); the warnings must be heeded; this Gospel of the Kingdom has been and shall continue to be preached unto all nations; and only the Father knows how long. It’s been the same Gospel for every generation: Jesus is coming soon. Even if we believe some of the signs are still for the future, we don’t need to say it’s going to happen in our generation. We can simply say, It’s going to happen, or it’s happened, or it’s happening – and Jesus is coming quickly!

    The message of the Church has always been that Jesus is coming soon. “Behold I come quickly.” We can still preach exactly the same message as the early church without predicting dates, regardless of our eschatological view.

    Even so, come Lord Jesus!
