Again, one of the things that our society will not tolerate is Christ. The spirit of this age knows what is true prophecy and the coming fate of many things, for the spirits of this age are akin to gods to men. They have more experience, more intelligence, and in the flesh more craft. But they lack the wisdom that comes from God. They want such suppressed. The fact that their activities are too obvious to be ignored shows that the time is short. Satan used to be more subtle. But Satan knows his time is short.
13 “I kept looking in the night visions,Daniel 7:13-14, NASB
And behold, with the clouds of heaven
One like a Son of Man was coming,
And He came up to the Ancient of Days
And was presented before Him.
14 “And to Him was given dominion,
Glory and a kingdom,
That all the peoples, nations and men of every language
Might serve Him.
His dominion is an everlasting dominion
Which will not pass away;
And His kingdom is one
Which will not be destroyed.
15 Then the seventh angel sounded; and there were loud voices in heaven, saying,Revelation 11:15, NASB
“The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His [Christ; and He will reign forever and ever.”
Both the book of Daniel and Revelations were written during times of duress and persecution. They look forward. The fashions of the time are overtly against Christ and his kingdom. But fashion is ephemeral.
In these times, we should look for the eternal.
