Hello everyone, I just wanted to bring this writing by Derek Prince to your attention in light of some research I’ve been doing on the falling away from the Truth. I think this lays things out very well regarding signs and wonders and the need for a solid Biblical foundation and understanding in these matters.
History Repeating: Mankind’s Fall of Pride November 14, 2007Posted by Watchman in Apostasy, New World Order, Spiritual.
I found this while reading about Nimrod (from the writings of Josephus) on the Wikipedia post.
“Now it was Nimrod who excited them to such an affront and contempt of God. He was the grandson of Ham, the son of Noah, a bold man, and of great strength of hand. He persuaded them not to ascribe it to God, as if it were through his means they were happy, but to believe that it was their own courage which procured that happiness. He also gradually changed the government into tyranny, seeing no other way of turning men from the fear of God, but to bring them into a constant dependence on his power…Now the multitude were very ready to follow the determination of Nimrod, and to esteem it a piece of cowardice to submit to God; and they built a tower, neither sparing any pains, nor being in any degree negligent about the work: and, by reason of the multitude of hands employed in it, it grew very high, sooner than any one could expect; but the thickness of it was so great, and it was so strongly built, that thereby its great height seemed, upon the view, to be less than it really was. It was built of burnt brick, cemented together with mortar, made of bitumen, that it might not be liable to admit water. When God saw that they acted so madly, he did not resolve to destroy them utterly, since they were not grown wiser by the destruction of the former sinners; but he caused a tumult among them, by producing in them diverse languages, and causing that, through the multitude of those languages, they should not be able to understand one another. The place wherein they built the tower is now called Babylon, because of the confusion of that language which they readily understood before; for the Hebrews mean by the word Babel, confusion…”
As I read it, I kept thinking of the humanist world we live in today. It seems true today as well that mankind is elevated in the minds of prideful men beyond where it should. The method to get us here has worked over long periods of time and through many influential people, but the end result is the same and pride comes before the fall. Mankind is turning from God and will continue to do so until God’s wrath is revealed from heaven. Even then they will blaspheme and hate Him rather than repent of their wickedness. Even the way the world views Christians as weak-minded for clinging to our belief seems to parallel.
The New World Order is attempting to bring about the same kind of reliance of the people upon government while using the education system and media to remove God from the consciousness of the people. The more this happens, the further the world gets from God. Out of sight, out of mind. As Christians, we know what the Bible says regarding the end result of this global governance being formed as you read this. One man will cave to the offer of power that Yeshua resisted in His temptations in the wilderness. Lucifer offered Yeshua the world and was rebuked. He will make that offer to the man of sin and for 3 1/2 years the holy people will be given into his hands to destroy them, the great tribulation. During this time, those without faith in the promise of life everlasting by accepting Christ’s sacrifice for sins will be faced with a choice of joining the antichrist or death. Those who choose life here and now will lose it eternally.
I just thought it was interesting and wanted to share. Don’t fall for the lie of human superiority. We are a fallen race of people who require the shed blood of the Word made flesh to enter the kingdom of heaven. We fight against principalities and powers, spiritual darkness in high places. So don’t be fooled by these immensely superior spirits who have thousands of years of experience in deceiving naive people. We have at most 120 years of experience and that is unheard of today, we are no match without the Word of God on our lips. Yeshua rebuked the temptation with the Word of God, so let us study His Word more so that we are not left defenseless against our superior enemy that lies and tricks with flattery and pride.
