Part I: Ruling The Society of Wickedness

The phrase above was one the L-RD, my G-D put in my heart, mind, and soul. So much so, it has been with me all this last week. Recently the news has been it usual, filled with many ungodly and deviant events. As a result of this, I wrote an article on Passing Sodom: Deviancy Goes Mainstream, it is published on our sites, http://www.wingswatchman.org/, and our WIBR/Warn News site- www.wingswatchman.org/WordPress, and on www.raidersnewsupdate.com, aka Raiders News Network. It describes the deviancy that is currently going on in America and how those who do such things have been successful in convincing America what deviancy really is. This goes to heart of Romans chapter one, where Paul was warning the Roman Christians of what was going on in the world they lived in.

Romans 1:27  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28.  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29.  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30.  Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31.  Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32.  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them

It was a society where rich men kept young boy homosexual lovers along with their wives. This society had whores, prostitutes, gold, silver, slaves, riches, houses, poor men, rich men, powerful men, and was doomed to be destroyed one day. Thus it was very rich, full of powerful, and ruled the entire world of its day. But they were completely wicked and idol worshippers. Their power and nation continued even amidst all their wickedness. That is, until the L-rd G-d cut them off. He did this by over running their empire with other barbarian tribes who also destroyed the Roman city, even destroying the Christian worship center there. In the end, the wickedness of Rome was cut off and G-d continued to rule from his throne.

This attitude of Rome at the time was that their war machine, which was indeed the greatest the world had ever seen, was their strength. They saw this and did not worry about enemies. Over the many years of their rule they conquered and ruled as the only might on earth. During this reign of power they brought in civilized roads and communication. They brought the Greek language and influence in, causing it to spread in the world. Through this Greek language, the apostles communicated the gospel to the gentiles who learned this language. Rome also brought in wealth, safety, and created an atmosphere for commerce. Many nations traded and the adage was “all roads led to Rome”. Rome was at the zenith of power and prosperity in the world when the Caesar did not know in the conquered land of the Jews, a young preacher was about to be crucified. He also did not know this same preacher, a Jew claimed to be the Messiah. He did not know this young Jew prophesied that Jerusalem, the temple, and the people in the city itself would be destroyed. In the end over one million people died during that siege, the young preacher-prophet and Messiah was correct. Yet this Messiah is at the right hand of the Father waiting to return to earth. Isaiah prophesied of this Messiah, the might G-d, who will have a government which shall never end.

Isaiah 9:6  For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
7.  Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

What this tells us is that America be warned. No king, nation, or country will be saved by their own hand, army, host, or their strength. Those who trust in chariots, war horses, or men will be destroyed.

Psalms 33:16  There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.
17.  An (war) horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.

For Strong is the L_RD G_D who judges her and rules the nations. He is the governor of the nations. The raises up as he did America and he tears down as he did Rome, Sodom, Gomorrah, Babylon, and many others. The L_RD Sees and hears the plans, plots, and counsel of the wicked nations. He knows what the Security Council is doing. His ears have heard the plots of the planners for their New World Order. He knows of the North American Union. Yet in all the wisdom of men, the L-RD’S counsel will stand. He will bring to nothing the plans of the nations. All they do, in fact, will fulfill what he has already spoken would happen at the mouth of his prophets and apostles..

Psalms 33:10  The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.
11.  The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.
12.  ¶Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
13.  The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.
14.  From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.
15.  He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.

We need to understand why the Apostles, Prophets, and even many Christians today are warning of what will happen when societies turn from the former ways to the godless ways. The simple truth is this, “God recognizes the righteous and those who do righteously”. When the church loses his savor as salt, when the people of G-d cease to be lights shining amidst the darkness, when they look just like the world, then they will be judged as the world. If the L-RD looks upon you today will he see righteousness or something else? Can the L-RD tell the difference between you and the world? These are questions to ask yourself. The L-RD will deliver, hid, and bring to himself all those who walk according to his ways. He knows how to keep you, deliver you, and protect you during these times.

Psalms 33:18  Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy;
19.  To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
20.  Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield.
21.  For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.
22.  Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.

Zephaniah 2:3  Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’S anger.

Today know that you are called and given a choice. I know of many ministers who are multi-millionaires and teach their people the highest form of Christianity is riches and wealth. Of course, they say this to convince you to give to them. “With money” they say, “You can do more for the L-RD”. The trouble today is that in our churches we look, sound, and act just like the world. We are accepting abominations in our churches and will in the end pay for it. Just read the first three chapters of Revelation and take heed to the warnings in those Words, but also take note of the over comers! Who are you today? Ask yourself this: “Am I a child of G-d, a worker of righteousness, and one who is waiting for the L-RD’S return, or am I lukewarm and just like the world?

That is why today, the L-RD is saying to you “Having done all, to stand, stand therefore”! Have you done all to stand as a child of G-D? When the tough times come, you will know. Because history has proven you reap what you sow. The L-RD G-D warned Israel and he is warning both the Church and America, saying “Take heed how you stand, lest you fall!”

Isaiah 65:12  Therefore will I number you to the sword, and ye shall all bow down to the slaughter: because when I called, ye did not answer; when I spake, ye did not hear; but did evil before mine eyes, and did choose that wherein I delighted not.

Part II: Having Done all, to stand, Stand Therefore!

You stand by taking all the armour of G-D!
Having Done all, to stand, Stand Therefore!
Stand so you can stand against the deceits of the Devil!

Ephesians 6:11  Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

Stand so you can With all The Evil in the Evil Day!
Stand in the Power (His dominion, strength, and manifested power) of His might!
This is standing in the L_RD, you are in His kingdom authority, dominion, and majesty through Christ Jesus. You are standing against all hell, earth, and the devil, but doing so in the dominion, strength, and manifested power of the L-RD.

Ephesians 6:13  Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day [phrase: anthistemi], and having done all, to stand.

“Withstand in the evil day” in the Greek: ‘Anthistemi’- withstand, vigorously opposing, bravely resisting, standing face to face against an adversary, standing your ground.

You are standing against the ‘arche’ principalities, the commanding generals over Satan’s fallen armies. You are standing against ‘exousia’ powers, the high ranking powers of evil. You are standing against ‘Kosmokrates’ rulers of the darkness of this age, the governing spirits of darkness. You are standing against ‘paneria’ wicked spirits in heavenly places, who comprise the body of soldiers of satans hordes. You are standing against wicked men, women, governments, and all others these powers of hell are using to bring forth their kingdom of darkness to be ruled by the Son of Perdition. [2 thess 2]

Ask yourself have I done all I can?
If so, when tough times come, stand by faith!
The armor Paul mentions below is the same armor prophesied of the Messiah would wear. We find this in ( Is11:5; 59:17; 52:7)

Ephesians 6:14  Stand therefore having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15.  And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16.  Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17.  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18.  Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Prepare for action, walk in the truth of G-D’S word.
Be holy, look for the L-RD’S return, and do not sway from the truth. For the Father will judge all men according to their works, so know that what you do, even if you call yourself Christian will be judged.
Beware, WALK in TRUTH!

1 Peter 1:13  ¶Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
14.  As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:
15.  But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;
16.  Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
17.  And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:

Put on righteousness, make no allowances to walk in the flesh, or do those things which wickedness brings into men of darkness.
Cast off, put away, and do not follow those who would fool you, delude you, or tell you this is not so!

Romans 13:12  The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
13.  Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
14.  But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.

Be prepared in this wicked day, amidst the deceits of the devil to proclaim the Gospel of Peace!
No matter how dirty, filthy, rotten, sick society is today, G-D’S grace is more than able to save anyone if they repent and follow the L-RD our G-D! To this end you were saved, now do not be dissuaded, but pursue the calling to proclaim the Salvation of the L-RD!

Isaiah 52:7  ¶How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!
8.  Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the LORD shall bring again Zion.
9.  Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem: for the LORD hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem.
10.  The LORD hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.

Our victory in this world is that we are born of God, and we are over comers by Faith. Our victory over the World is our Faith.

1 John 5:4  For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
5.  Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

We are comforted by the fact that we have for a helmet the Salvation of our G-D! For our G-D has not appointed us to experience his wrath, but his salvation. Therefore be sober, clean, righteous, obeying all his commandments, and walk by faith in this wicked society. Full of love, for Love fulfills the commandments and the law.

1 Thessalonians 5:8  But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
9.  For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

Take therefore the Word of G-D and wield it as a Sword! When you do so the Word becomes the Rhema word!That Word of God which is spoken to fight the battle! Take G-D’S word, pray G-D’S, speak G-D’S word, and mix it with Faith!

Matthew 4:4  But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word [Rhema] that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Hebrews 4:2  For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.

The L_RD will know those that are His and deliver them
Many who have ignored all these warnings will cry out loud and ask G-d for deliverance when the L-RD overturns the wicked and their societies in the last days. Be warned, ignore these scriptures to your own peril. But be comforted in knowing that if you are doing all this, then the L-RD will surely know you as one of his righteous ones.

Isaiah 66:4  I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.

Colossians 3:5  ¶Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:
6.  For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:
