Spiritual Apostasy or The Great Falling Away

2020 Just Keeps Rolling Along with Increasing Spiritual Apostasy and the Increasing Revealing of the Beast Now and Future Antichrist; Only FIVE (5)% of Democrats say decline in faith, church attendance is a major issue for families: poll

The Confirmer/Prince/Beast (now) who becomes the Antichrist (future), midway through the coming seven (7) year tribulation. Seven (7) verses:

Daniel 9:26-27 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

Matthew 24:15: “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (whoever reads, let him understand) then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.”

Daniel 11:36 Then the king shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done.

2 Thessalonians 2:3 “Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”

Revelation 17:8-11 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

Daniel 11:31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.

Daniel 12:11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.

Christian ‘Falling Away’ – Man of Sin – Son of Perdition

2 Thessalonians 2:3  “Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

Note: The man of sin, ‘son of perdition’ is being revealed currently. The final ‘proof’ will be during his ‘abomination of desolation’ after 7 years. MBS became Crown Prince from the bottomless pit of Evil, House of Saud, in June of 2017 + 7 = 2024. Seven (7) denotes God’s divine completion to His plan or purpose. 2020-2027 is the 7 year tribulation. 2028 is Israel’s 80th anniversary, ‘A new millennial beginning.’ Eight (8) represents a new era, a new beginning, the Millennial Reign of Christ on Earth. 2 Thessalonians 2:3 simply indicates that the ‘Day of the Lord’ (second physical coming of Christ to earth) WILL NOT occur until 3 ½ years AFTER the Beast identifies himself as the Antichrist during the event known as the ‘abomination of desolation’ where he declares himself to be god and demands the world to worship him accordingly, under threat of death. This will most likely occur sometime in 2024. Three things are to happen in order. 1. The ‘falling away’ or spiritual apostasy of many around the world regarding Christian faith. 2. The ‘abomination of desolation’ occurring at the midpoint of the tribulation. 3. Lastly, the ‘Day of the Lord’ will not occur until AFTER events noted one and two have already occurred. The revealing of the Beast who becomes the Antichrist, takes EXACTLY Seven (7) years to be completed. ‘Step 1’ has occurred.

2020 Just Keeps Rolling Along with Increasing Spiritual Apostasy and the Increasing Revealing of the Beast Now and Future Antichrist; Only FIVE (5)% of Democrats say decline in faith, church attendance is a major issue for families: poll

By Samuel Smith, U.S. Editor September 25, 2020 Christian Post

Only 5% of Democrats and less than 50 (5)% of Republicans believe the “decline in religious faith and church attendance” is a top-three issue facing families in the United States, a new survey has found. 

The 2020 American Family Survey was released Tuesday, a poll of 3,000 Americans conducted by YouGov and sponsored by Deseret News and Brigham Young University in Utah, institutions associated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. 

The sixth annual survey was done between July 3 and July 14 and has an error margin of plus or minus 1.9 percentage points. 

Among the many questions in the survey was one asking respondents to pick three issues from a list of curated issue items that they find to be the “most important issues facing families today.”

About 41% of respondents selected the answer: “parents not teaching or disciplining their children sufficiently,” while about one out of three (32%) answered with “the costs associated with raising a family.”

One-quarter of respondents (25%) said they think “high work demands on parents” and “More children growing up in single-parent homes” are among the three most pressing issues facing families today. 

Just over 2 out of 10 respondents (21%) identified the “decline in religious faith and church attendance” as a major issue facing families. 

When broken down based on ideological lines, 44% of Republicans included in a half sample (1,500 respondents) answered that “decline in religious faith and church attendance” as one of three major issues facing families in the U.S.

The result comes as there has been a recorded rise in Americans who do not identify with religious faiths and a decline in church attendance in recent years.

Some 51% of Republicans selected “parents not teaching or disciplining their children sufficiently” as a major issue facing families. 

Additionally, 41% of GOP respondents said “more children growing up in single-parent homes” is one of the most important issues facing families today. 

By comparison, just 5% of Democrats selected “decline in religious faith and church attendance,” while 25% selected “parents not teaching or disciplining their children sufficiently” and 13% answered, “more children growing up in single-parent homes.”

About 16% of Republicans selected “sexual permissiveness in our society” as a major issue facing families, while 6% of Democrats said that same. Nearly 2 in 10 Republicans (19%) said the “change in the definition of marriage and family” is a major issue facing families in the U.S., while 6% of Democrats said the same.

In the half sample, 33% selected the “coronavirus pandemic” while 20% selected “racial inequality” as major issues facing American families.  

While 45% of Democrats identified the pandemic as a major concern, only 21% of Republicans said the same. While 33% of Democrats identified racial inequality as a major concern for families in the U.S., only 4% of  Republicans agreed. 

“For Democrats, the pandemic was single most often chosen item on the list, followed by the costs associated with raising a family,” the 40-page research report reads.  “Racial inequality ranked third among Democrats and was chosen by fully one-third of Democratic respondents. By contrast, Republicans were most likely to identify parental discipline, the decline in religious faith and church attendance, and the rise of single-parent homes as the most pressing issues facing families.”

Researchers state that the data suggests that “Republicans and Democrats perceive the issues confronting families, including contemporary public health and social challenges, through very different lenses, even though partisans are talking about these issues a great deal.”

The American Family Survey began asking Americans to list the most important issues facing families since 2015. 

One thing the majority of Democrats and Republicans could agree on in 2020 was that COVID-19 stimulus checks and small business relief were “helpful government policy.”

In 2020, the survey showed that there have been some positives to come out of the coronavirus pandemic from a family building perspective. 

“Most notably, American families have revealed that despite the turmoil of this year, they are resilient. The pandemic is not destroying American families,” Boyd Matheson, Deseret News opinion editor, said in a statement. “In fact, it’s making them stronger. More than half (56%) of those surveyed have said the pandemic has made spouses appreciate their partner more. Only 1 in 10 disagreed.”

About 47% of respondents said that the pandemic has “deepened my commitment to my relationship,” while about 25% say that the pandemic “has increased stress in my relationship.” Only 13% said that the pandemic has “made me question the strength of my relationship” while 62% disagreed. 

One in five (19%) say that there has been “some disagreement at home about social distancing and COVID-related guidelines.”

“Thus, while some Americans are struggling, others seem to have found solace in their relationships during these ongoing challenges,” the report adds. 

 Deseret News Editor Doug Wilks said that “strong families are upstream from a healthy, vibrant, and civilized society.”

“And that gives me hope — despite disagreements on how to solve the challenges in front of us — that America will get through this,” Wilks added. 

2 Thessalonians 2:3  “Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

John 13:19 Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he.

John 14:29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.

Luke 21:31 So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.

Mark 13:29 So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors.

Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

Revelation 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

‘Increasing Like Labor Pains.’ ‘Fearful Sights.’ ‘Perilous Times.’ ‘Men’s hearts failing with fear.’ Great Convergence of Signs.’ REDEMPTION IMMINENT.

Make Your Decision for Christ NOW!!!!!!! Time is Up!!!!!!!

Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:

The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)

A. Admit/Acknowledge/Accept that you are sinner. Ask God’s forgiveness and repent of your sins.

. . . “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).

. . . “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” (1 John 1:8).

B. Believe Jesus is Lord. Believe that Jesus Christ is who He claimed to be; that He was both fully God and fully man and that we are saved through His death, burial, and resurrection. Put your trust in Him as your only hope of salvation. Become a son or daughter of God by receiving Christ.

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).

. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).

. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).

. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).

. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).

. . . “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).

. . . “But as many as received him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” (John 1:12).

True Church / Bride of Christ Spared from God’s Wrath:

 Romans 5:8-10. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.”

Romans 12:19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 1:10. And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

1 Thessalonians 5:9. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

Romans 8:35. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Jeremiah 30:7. Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.

Revelation 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
