Revelation 22:12--- The Reward of the Evil and the Reward of the Faithful

In these increasingly evil days orthodox Christianity is under attack on all sides. Throughout certain areas of the world deadly attacks are at or near genocidal levels.

 Behind these attacks are Christ-hating Progressive Leftists and Progressive liberal 'Christians” (unbelievers pretending to be Christian) united in an unholy alliance with Islamists to achieve the eradication of faithful orthodox Christianity in favor of a one world pantheist religion in a borderless, polymorphously perverse gender-fluid earthly paradise where depravity reigns and predators prey openly and freely upon the helpless.

 Christ-haters and their followers are travelers of the wide, crooked way thus hate the narrow way and its pilgrims. They have their own ever-unfolding menu of privileges which they call 'rights,' their own version of the Golden Rule and of what constitutes good, such as their 'choice' to deny life to the inconvenient, to practice their own pansexual 'love,' and to live parasitic lives at the expense of the productive. As they are autonomous and morally-perfect in their own eyes they travele their own sovereign roads and expect the God of Revelation and everyone else to accept and tolerate them — to put up and shut up. This being the case, they resent the living God and blame Him for not accepting them just as they are, for not jumping through hoops for them, for not seeing things their way.

 On the other hand, the travelers of the narrow way think that anyone would be delighted to live in heaven at first, and then one day on the renewed earth, Paradise. Yet the things of heaven and Paradise that bring unspeakable joy to Christ’s children bring immense pain to the envious travelers of the crooked way.

In The Great Divorce, C.S. Lewis shows that heaven is a place of eternal joy, of unbelievably beautiful happy people, colors, music, flowers, singing birds, delicious food, and never-ending light unencumbered by misery. This last is an especially good insight, for the crooked love misery and demand that others share their misery, which in the end means spending eternity in hell. In fact, the paradise-bound often feel that their joys and blessings must be constrained, denigrated and even hidden from the burning gaze of the envious, that they ought to share the miseries of the envious lest they be accused of hate, narrow-minded intolerance, selfishness, homophobia, racism, and bigotry. Yet Lewis, speaking through the voice of George MacDonald, reveals that hatred of the good underlies the demands of envious self-idolaters:

"That sounds very merciful: but see what lurks behind it?" "What?" "The demand of the loveless and the self-imprisoned that they should be allowed to blackmail the universe: that till they consent to be happy (on their own terms) no one else shall taste joy: that theirs should be the final power; that Hell should be allowed to veto Heaven." (The Great Divorce)

 V-Day for the Crooked

 Sensing triumph, it is with a consensus of lies brazenly legalized by broken, twisted laws enforced by psychological manipulation, propaganda of the lie, public shaming, shunning, and violence, that even the blackest, most vile wickedness is being forced by arrogant, conscienceless, crooked Christ-haters and their depraved followers upon decent, law-abiding Americans, Christians, and their children: 

 “Downright Sickening: CA Preps Graphic Sex ED with Bondage, ‘Blood Play,’ and K-3 Gender Queer”    

 A book for kindergarten through third, 

 “teaches that they can be a boy, girl, neither, gender queer or gender fluid and that adults might not understand their gender identity (while) a book for fourth, fifth and sixth-grade boys discusses slang words for genitals and explains masturbation and sexual fantasies.”  A third book for high school students “introduces sex acts for all sexual orientations and introduces the concepts of bondage, body fluid, blood play, fisting and other sexual behaviors once considered to be acts of debauchery.”  (CBN News, Heather Sells, May 1, 2019)

 But in the midst of terrible suffering, the Lord Jesus Christ comforts His faithful children: 

 "Behold, I am coming quickly. Blessed is the one who keeps the words of prophecy in this book.” (Rev. 22:7)  

 "Then he told me, “Do not seal up the words of prophecy in this book, because the time is near. He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. “Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to each one according to what he has done.”  Rev. 22:10-12

 Thus as the Light fades to black throughout the soulless wasteland that once was Christendom and Protestant America, the power and violence of the satanic will work its will through envious Christ-haters and their depraved followers and they will sow and reap their own eternal destiny in hell.   Damnation--this is their eternal reward.

 For all of the faithful who persevere there will be a new heaven and a new earth:

 “And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying: “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man, and He will live with them. They will be His people, and God Himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the former things have passed away. And the One seated on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’ Then He said, ‘Write this down, for these words are faithful and true.” (Rev. 21:3-5, Berean Study Bible)

 Paradise— this is the eternal reward of the faithful.
