What I see happening now is the Laodicean church in America is allowing the Antichrist’s system to come to power. If the church was strong and crying out to God, this system could not form and gain control. The church was a direct block to this system, but the antichrist’s system is now filling the void created by the lukewarm, Laodicean church. The election of Obama as President is overwhelming evidence of how weak the church is. He is advancing the sodomite agenda along with killing babies in the womb. He is doing everything to advance and protect Islam. God would never allow this if the church was strong.
As the church retreats from standing for the LORD, the devil is moving his system into place. The church has traded its authority with God for peace with the world and prosperity. It has been bought off. I see the church now like Esau who traded his birthright for a little food!
Hebrews 12:16 Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.
The church has committed fornication with the world system and lost its power just like Esau lost his birthright.
gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
It appears there is a connection between the dead Laodicean church and the whore. With the apostasies of the modern “church” including Chrislam, new age ideas, and ecumenicalism, it is easy to see how this Laodicean church could evolve into the great whore. It certainly is going to be a major player in the coming one-world apostate religion that operates without Jesus Christ as the only begotten Son of God. The modern Bible translations that remove the Lord is the Only Begotten Son of God, are part of this Laodicean church heading into the whore.
Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. In Revelation 3:14, the Lord Jesus Christ is called the faithful and true witness: “These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness”. This is exactly what is needed in the Laodicean church: a faithful and true witness for the Lord. We now live in an age of compromised, faithless church in that the overwhelming amount of believers refuse to stand with God. They live without understanding God’s holiness and without walking in the true fear of the LORD. This church is compromised and fears the government more than God. The result is a church that gives lip service but the heart is lukewarm at best. This is God’s remedy for people in such a state.
This is exactly what is missing from the Laodicean church: faithful witnesses. Within the church of the Lord Jesus that returns with Him are the faithful witnesses which were overcomers during the Laodicean era. You must fight through the Laodicean spirit, which now permeates everything around us. You cannot go along with the heresies, which are also all around us.
