People who have been Christians for any significant period, have gone through times in which they realized they were under offensive attack by their enemy in the spirit realm. I’m speaking of Satan and his cohorts; his partners in oppressive attacks on mankind (evil spirits of various types – Ephesians 6). Non-believers, the antichristian people of this current world are also under attack; these attacks will leave them with stress, anxiety and depression. Other attacks are deceivingly pleasure experiences (2 Thessalonians 2:12).

Within my own Christian belief, which I know to be more than confirmed and well-substantiated in God's Holy Word; Bible Scripture, is that at some of these oppressive times of being attacked by Satan's kingdom, these evil spirits will harass persons with a specific type of oppression, in the form of false accusations – lies against them (Revelation 12:10). These lies, having their roots in gossip, will have attempted credence added to them by other people of the busybody types, who join-in on these lying accusation(s). This type of oppression, leaves both believers in Christ and non-believers who are attacked, feeling downtrodden (Matthew 5:45).

Satan hates all people, because we’re all made in the image of God which the Devil desires to destroy (Genesis 1:26). Those who accept Jesus to be their Lord in life and their personal Savior however (Christians), have advantages; praying in the omnipotent name of Jesus and of having his powerful, precious blood as their boundary against spiritual enemies – Satan and his fellow, fallen angels. We who are in Christ and He in us, also have the glorious, omnipresent, Holy Ghost (God's Spirit), guiding and leading us. He teaches us and gives us power against our enemies, and God's Holy Word, when heard or read, brings to our own born-again spirits, a faith capable of removing mountains (Mark 11:22-23 - parabolic teaching by Jesus).

Revelation 12:10 "And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night." – KJV

Matthew 25:13 - "Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour."; In reference to Jesus Christ gathering the saved - born again, believers together at this sudden resurrection. This passage of scripture in Matthew, when read along with the verses that come before and after it, is an extremely important truth. Jesus is teaching, regarding those who are saved and looking for his eminent return to catch them away, to Heaven versus non-believers in Him who will remain on earth during God’s wrath and Satan’s final attempt to destroy those who remain; the left behind.

This will happen at "the Rapture", an event not named as such in the Holy Scriptures, but which is described vividly within them (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 and 1 Corinthians 15:52). Paul said of this event, to Titus: "Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ;" (Titus 2:13). It is of great significance, while we live in this present time, to see Bible prophecy Jesus taught about (Matthew 24), occurring before our very eyes. In "Matthew 24:8- 13: All these we see now, (pre-rapture -January 2020) are described by The Lord, as “the beginning of sorrows”.

Things will get progressively worse very soon as "The Great Tribulation” (God’s righteous judgements fall) and yet we see many Christians falling away from Biblical faith (2 Thessalonians 2:3) and simply sloughing-off current events, saying: "these type things have always happened; they’ve always remained the same". Are you sure about that, or is it what you would rather believe?

2 Peter 3:4: “They will say; Where is this 'coming' he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation." (NIV)

Author's Bio: 

Now age 57 this year of 2020, I am a graduate of Liberty University (1996) for completion of theological studies. Bible studies are one of my most-covered book-subjects. I am however, careful to only address those subjects that I believe God has given me correct revelation on. I was a Christian Youth Minister, beginning in the 1980s for approximately 20 years (between youth ministries I served in other church capacities as well). I was also a guest speaker to churches, who invited me to present important Bible teachings to their evangelical congregations, during those same years.
