NEARING THE END: BROKEN BANDS AND CASTAWAY CORDS


William Andrew Dillard

Observance of prophecy being fulfilled is most interesting, but it is a complicated process to understand and watch. It is seeing mankind in a continual slide away from God, and the principles of what is right to embrace those of selfishness and sensuality. But these have been long described as monuments of the end of the age.
In the words of Psalm 2:1, “Why do the heathen rage and the people imagine a vain thing?” What they produce is indeed vanity, and the sinful imaginations of a people in full scale rejection of their Creator. Satanic influence leads them as blind men down the road of false promise to an apex of depraved fulfillment that can never be. In the process, wholesale numbers in the human sea press onward, presenting a formidable challenge to authority.
Numbered among the human sea are those who desire to remain in authority. It is the kings and rulers who then take counsel together. Their counsel is against the LORD (Jesus) and His anointed (His bride, the church, the pillar and ground of the truth).
Their consensus is to break away from Judeo/Christian ethics, and the teachings of the Word, the same Word by which they have authority in the first place, (Rom. 13). As they cast away all attachments to the LORD and His anointed, the proverbial tail wags the dog, so that there remain no standards by which right and wrong are discriminated, and wrongdoing justly rewarded due punishment.
The latest step in the process of authority rejection gained impetus in the unjust death of one George Floyd of Minnesota. The sea of humanity who did not know or have empathy for the murdered man seized upon the act to advance the lawless process. They rioted and looted in major cities to clamor for the dismantling of police departments.
They will succeed in increments. It is a slow, but methodical process, and one more step toward a human quagmire is accomplished. God will laugh, having them in their derision. In the LORD’S wrath, He will vex them in His sore displeasure. Psalm 2:4-5.
We have been there before. Just note Judges 17 and 21, “Every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” It did not work out well then, and it will never do so in the future. Although Satan is the god of this present evil world system, God remains in control of its ultimate outcome. Solomon said in Proverbs 12:15, “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes. . . “ Wise men learn from history.
