Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate. Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach. For we have no continuing city here, but we seek one to come.
Select a thought to read by choosing a collection, the month, and then the day:
“Come out of her, my people, so that you do not participate in her sins, so that you do not receive of her plagues, for her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her unrighteous deeds.”
When Satan destroys Christianity, using the Beast and his ten kings, it will be because by that time, there will be no power of God left in it. By that time, obedient children of God who were in Christianity will have heard and obeyed the Father’s call to come out of it, and when they leave, God’s saving power will leave with them. But sadly, there will be some of God’s children who will refuse the Father’s final call and, so, with Christianity, will suffer the wrath of God and be destroyed.
The only thing that is saving God’s children now, and the only thing that will save them in the future, is God’s power. His power is the protective hedge that God has placed around His family, but in the end, that hedge will remain only around those who obey the voice of God. His children who refused to come out of Christianity will be as defenseless as that religion is against the powers of this age. “And the ten horns that you saw, and the Beast, these will hate the harlot, and they will make her desolate and naked, and they will eat her flesh and consume her with fire. For God put it into their hearts to carry out His plan, to have one mind and to give their kingdom to the Beast until the words of God be fulfilled” (Rev. 17:16–17).
The Bible warns us that the day is coming when Christianity will have no obedient children of God left within her, no souls who have the favor of God upon them and the protective power of the holy Spirit about them. That is the time when Satan, through his son, the Beast, will utterly plunder and destroy Christianity, along with all who belong to her. May we find grace with God to abide under His shadow and be preserved by the presence of His Spirit forever.
