The War Against the Saints!

  ( Note: I will get back to my series, "Building the Local Church"; I have a few things I need to speak first.)
   Do you realize what's going on? There is a passage in Revelation preachers don't like to talk about much, and I know I won't be very popular discussing it either. But God put it there for a reason, and we need to take a look.
And there was given him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue 42 months... and it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. Revelation 13: 5, 7
Lest you think that's a typo, consider Daniel 7:21 & 25:
I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;
And he shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
Well, that sucks! We lose??? Are they changing laws? yeah. Are they wearing us down? Yeah. How can this be? Why would God let that happen? Well, Jesus said He'd separate the sheep from the goats, and the weeds from the wheat. Pressure from the world will sift the Body of Christ, and drive out the posers.
   Since the end of WW2, movies, music, and tv have been "pushing the envelope" to bring down our moral standards. Public schools also teach & preach worldly ethics. Remember George Carlin's "7 Words ya Can't Say on TV"? We hear those words all the time now. Did you know there's a children's book titled, "Go the F**k to Sleep"? That's right, a children's book. And don't give me this line, "Media doesn't affect me". Of course it does.  The Devil uses music and comedy to get us to accept things we never would otherwise; it lowers our defenses.  We're under attack, folks.
