Is It Time to Keep Silent?

Is it time to keep silent?

– Silence!

It rang through the room. The message was clear.

Yet, there were so many important things unsaid. There were so much you wanted to tell your classmates and the teacher.
You tried to raise your hand, in hope that you could share a few of the experiences.

– Now is not the time to speak! You have to keep it for later, the voice continued to say.

We have all experienced it. Some have not experienced it since primary school or elementary school.

The end of the world is near

Natural disasters are increasing in intensity and frequency. We are living in the times of Noah – people are marrying, eating and drinking, thinking everything is okay. The history is also repeating itself from the time of Sodom. The love is growing cold, poverty and violence are increasing.

As a Bible believing Christian, I think we are living in exciting, but also alarming times.

– The end of the world is near. The world cannot stand much longer in this condition.

Said who? Media and science. 1, 2

– I want the Pope to lead all religions together in a united system, said former Israeli President Shimon Peres. 3

But he is not alone with this idea.

– Let’s gather all Christians together despite doctrinal differences, says the ecumenical movement and the Papacy. Rick Warren, Kenneth Copeland, the Catholic Church, the Orthodox Church, Pentecostals, the Lutheran’ Church, and many other Protestant denominations are aiming for Christian Unity. 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13

When the world says it, it’s okay, Christians won’t oppose it much. But when a Christian points out the same facts, and in addition points to the prophecies of the last days, he is called a fanatic, conspiracist, judgmental and unloving.

From the world? Even more from fellow Christians.

The world can see the growth and political influence of the Papacy, and the increasing relations with United States. Can you?

But what the world does not know is what is going on behind the scenes. We know that, because the Bible tells us so. But we are starting to do like other Christians, putting away the book of Daniel and Revelation, saying: “Let’s see what will happen, I will not judge anyone.”

– There are Jesuits in the American Government!

Have you heard that? Me too. I know what some of you are thinking when you hear such words: “Conspiracy, stop talking about this!”
But who actually did said this? The Jesuits themselves. 14
By the way, it’s quite alarming that there is a Jesuit who commissions the religious freedom committee, knowing their agenda.

Catholics are taking over American Politics

Before you turn that down, at least listen to statements made by Catholics themselves.

You see, the times are not like before. It would be unimaginable only a few decades ago that Catholics would be on rise in politics in (formerly) a strong Protestant country. The times have changed. United States currently has a Catholic vice president, six Catholic Supreme Court justices, a Catholic Speaker of the House, and in addition, a large number of Catholics in Congress. Now the golden age of Catholicism in American politics has arrived. Kennedy was the first Catholic president. Catholic Al Smith likely lost the 1928 campaign because of his religion. 15, 16

It doesn’t stop here! The fact that Pope Francis, the first jesuit Pope, will visit the U.S next month is proving this fast development of bonds between the world’s two superpowers.

“Francis’s trip isn’t about politics, but it would be naïve to ignore the political implications of a visit during which he is expected to lift up his recent encyclical letter on the care for God’s creation, the religious obligation to defend the dignity of immigrants, the poor, and the unborn, and the moral scandal of social inequality and of an economy that kills.”
– Christopher Hale, executive director at Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good and the co-founder of Millennial.

Knowing that Pope Francis lifts up Sunday keeping to part of the solutions to the problems of climate and poverty, it should be alarming to those who know the truth about Revelation 13.

Does that mean the Sunday laws will come tomorrow or next year?

They CAN, only God knows. But they CAN also come in 5 years or later.

Catholics and protestants are ready to unite in the reformation. They no longer want to “condemn” one another, they say. 17, 18

Seeing these things, there is only one thing that a protestant can do: Protesting against it, while upholding the truth.

The media is talking about it. Science is talking about it. Shall we keep silent?

Should we wait until the fulfillment of the prophecies?

Some pastors say it creates fear to speak up, and suggest we need to wait and see if the prophecies fulfill as we have interpreted them to. That is, to see if really United States and the Papacy are the two beasts of Revelation 13, as a thorough study shows.

Let me give you a gem by one of my favorite authors, Ellen G. White:

“Are we to wait until the fulfillment of the prophecies of the end before we say anything concerning them? Of what value will our words be then? Shall we wait until God’s judgments fall upon the transgressor before we tell him how to avoid them? Where is our faith in the word of God? Must we see things foretold come to pass before we will believe what He has said? In clear, distinct rays light has come to us, showing us that the great day of the Lord is near at hand, “even at the doors.” Let us read and understand before it is too late.  {9T 20.1}

I think that speaks pretty plain, but let me point something out, in line with what she says.

We know that we are living in the time of the end. According to Daniel 12, the time of the end started in 1798 (referring to the 1260 day-prophecy).

Is it time to keep silent?

In that same year, the Papacy got a wound, but “the deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.” (Revelation 13:3)

Is it possible to look into the world today, without seeing that wound healing?

Is it possible without seeing people wondering after the beast?

– The Pope continues to take the world by storm. 19

– The Pope is an immense political power. 20

“the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.” (Revelation 12:12)

Is this the only thing to speak about? Of course not. But considering that these truths are some of the last deceptions of satan, should they not have certain importance in our message, commissioned by God?

“We need to be loving and not judging, so please don’t talk about it.”, some will say. To share the truth should always be motivated by love for God and for our neighbors.

Protestants should even more than science and media proclaim that the end of the world is near, and that the last deceptions of satan is at the door. We need to disguise the last superpowers in this world. We know about their agenda of gathering not only all Christians but all people into a false system of worship (except those who follow the Lamb wherever He goes).

The shortness of time

Even the world can see an increasing cooperation between the Papacy and United States, and the great power both of them have today.

The day when it finally happens, when the cooperation is complete, and the Sunday law comes, it will be too late to start proclaiming these prophecies. Let’s use the time we have now!

– It doesn’t look like Jesus is coming back, a Catholic cardinal said. 21

But unfortunately it seems many others are joining this voice.

In Ellen G. White’s first vision she saw the Advent people on a path to heaven. The midnight cry behind gave them light, and if they kept their eyes on Jesus, they were safe.

But soon some grew weary, and said the city was far away, and they expected to have entered it before. Some denied the light behind them.
What was the light behind them that some denied?

The midnight cry, which is also found in Matthew 25 saying: “Look the bridegroom is coming”.

Those who denied the light behind them “fell off the path down into the dark and wicked world below.” (EW 14)

Is the light still shining behind you? Jesus is coming!

Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming?” (2 Peter 3:3-4)

Which side are you standing on in these end times? Are you going to keep silent, and be popular in this world’s eyes, or are you going to proclaim our prophetic message, with a voice that cannot cease? If that is the case, you will become more and more unpopular with time.

One thing is clear – we are closer to the second coming than ever before. And even if the last events won’t fulfill in 30 years, now is still the time to preach the three angel’s messages, that started to be proclaimed in 1844. The prophecies doesn’t indicate a pause of silence to the plain Word, but rather with an increasing voice.

It’s not time to get more silent on Bible Prophecy when we see an increasing fulfillment in front of our eyes!

Christian is founder of Empower Missions. He is an experienced teacher of the Bible, a nurse, and a public speaker. Christian loves to help others to more healthy and meaningful lives. He is fascinated by bible prophecy, that is very relevant today. Within health he has a passion for lifestyle, preventive health and natural remedies.
