Christ: Change We Can Believe In

 

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” – (2 Cor.5:17).

“… are changed into the same image from glory to glory; even as by the Spirit of God” – (2 Cor.3:18).

 

   For the last 2000 years millions of people have testified to changed lives after being saved by Christ and born again. They were changed by Christ into a new, born again, Holy Spirit creature with a new heart. Born again describes what happens to you when you’ve truly saved from your sins and hell. You instantly become a new creature – you do not grow into a new creature, you are born a new creature instantly – “Created in Christ Jesus” – (Eph.2:10). You become a new man. Your old man is crucified with Christ on the cross – (Rom.6:6). Old things are passed away (die) and all things become new. There is a deep radical change that takes place and that change can be easily seen by unsaved, unbelievers as they say “He’s really changed.” Your life changes from an ungodly life following the wicked world, into a godly life following Christ and His Word. You have a new heart and a new Spirit and your understanding and mind is radically changed. You have new friends and see the world with new eyes. You have a new love for people and new feelings rise in your heart for all men. You change from evil to good: a godly change –YOU ARE CHANGED– amen. This is the change we can believe in. Changed instantly and forever by Christ.

 

   First Christ changes us inwardly as our Savior and when He comes back as emperor, He will make drastic changes outwardly in society, during the 1000 year millennial kingdom of God on earth. God will govern this earth, a theocracy. Only the Lord knows how to rule among men. God will rule in the person of King Jesus and He rules with a rod of iron; with resistless power. God’s holy laws will be rigorously enforced and His saints will reign as kings and priests beneath Him. Christ will take care of the crime problem. There will be peace on earth, goodwill toward men. After He puts down Antichrist at Armageddon, there will be no more war for a thousand years. “Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more” – (Is.2:3). The motto of the world will be – “holiness unto the Lord”. There will be remarkable productivity as the scourge of violent weather and insects etc. will be no more. There will be a taming of the wild; the cruel ferocity, so evident in the animal kingdom and with all God’s living creatures, will be no more – (Is.11:6).

 

   Christ will change all the different false religions in the world to one true Christian religion. He will be the one and only God worshipped; He will demand exclusive worship – “And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one” – (Zech.14:9). During earth’s history, there have been thousands of different gods and lords worshipped. But there is only one true Lord, the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and when Christ returns there will be absolutely no other gods or religions on earth. God has put up with the darkness and disobedience of man long enough. Now the Lord Jesus, King of Kings, will only be worshipped. We will have true, Godly emperor worship. There will be one Lord and only one name to use and worship. All false gods will be forbidden and abandoned and all false worship abolished. The Holy Bible will be the only religious book allowed, which will be our law and our unity and by which we shall live. There will be one God, one Lord, one faith and we will all speak one language with no cursing or filthy words – one pure language – (Zeph.3:9). These are the promises of God and the change to believe in. Christ will make all the necessary changes that are needed in order to have a peaceful Godly world.

 

   But just before Jesus returns, Antichrist will try to accomplish the same thing as he counterfeits Christ and will be emperor over the whole earth and be the only God worshipped by the unbelieving world. “Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God” – (2 Thes.2:4). O, do you not see the audacity of Antichrist. He is the most audacious man who ever lived and this verse shows that truth perfectly. He will become bolder, and more arrogant and audacious until he declares himself God and forces the whole world to worship him under penalty of death – (Rev.13). O the sheer audacity of this unprecedented act. The key word of his personality is, audacity, audacity, audacity. Instead of Godly change, he will make evil changes.

 

   But the unsaved are changing into more and more wickedness as they fall deeper and deeper into sin. Becoming covetous after money and the things that money can buy brings much evil change in many lives. Our money in small denominations is called ‘change’ and people try to get rich on the stock exchange. God’s Word warns us of money change – “…and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself. But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after…” – (I Tim.6:5-10). Jesus showed His righteous anger at the ‘money changers’ in the temple as He drove them out with a whip and overthrew the tables and poured out the money. O man of God, stay far away from the evil changes of money. Only the Lord knows how much evil has been done for money. The police tell us that in order to solve crime they ‘follow the money trail.’ When people in the U.S. fell in love with money and became covetous it became the root cause of our change from a Godly America to the evil America of today.

 

   Senator Barack Obama speaks constantly of ‘change we can believe in’. His supporters are caught up in the euphoria of the moment and Obama’s promise of change. Don’t be deceived by his beguiling, enticing words of change because it will be a change for evil. He preaches a false hope and evil changes; the changes that he is endorsing are changes for evil and not good. He is 100% for the ungodly sin of abortion and the murder of helpless babies. He is 100% for the ungodly, fornicating sin of sodomy and for homosexuals to be legally married. God’s fiery destruction of Sodom was God’s example to us –“… making them an example unto those that after should live ungodly” – (2 Pet.2:6). Marriage of homosexuals is becoming legal now and soon God’s true preachers will he imprisoned for not marrying them in church.

 

   Obama is helping to change our nation from a godly nation to an ungodly nation ripe for the judgment of God. He’s changing God’s Word so that sodomites can change the natural, God-given way of sex between males and females for which God created them. And he’s preaching this heresy publicly and in churches as well. “Who ‘changed’ the truth of God into a lie…For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did ‘change’ the natural use into that which is against nature” – (Rom.1:25,26). And soon will come the Beast who will make ‘bestiality’ (human sex with beasts) legal, which the sodomites practice already. It is written of Antichrist – “… change times and laws” – (Dan.7:25) and there goes our freedoms and the constitutional lawyer Obama would know how to do it. Our president can govern and make laws by decree through executive orders bypassing Congress. Soon our imperial president-antichrist will change any law he wants to and it’s been coming for a long time. With a stroke of his pen – the law of the land – a decree from Caesar.

 

   Jesse Jackson ran twice for president with a message of change and now Obama is the candidate of change. Jackson at the Democrat Convention in a rousing speech said – “We are pregnant. We are ready for change. And whether a doctor is there or not, the water has broke, the blood is spilled, and a new black baby is going to be born.” Well, it looks like Obama might well be that offspring and Jackson paved the way for him. But Obama is not just a black offspring, but a black and white offspring with a black father from Kenya and a white mother from Kansas and both abandoned him. And Obama is using this to get 90% of the black vote and a good % of white votes. He portrays himself as the man who transcends race and tries to maintain his multiracial coalition that is at the heart of his message of Change. Do not follow Obama’s evil changes – follow Christ and God’s Word. Don’t follow America’s rampage toward evil change.

 

   Be saved and born again and changed by the Holy Spirit and wait for the day soon when Christ returns and changes our vile body and gives us a new eternal body. “Who shall ‘change’ our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body (Philip.3:21). Again – “Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall al be ‘changed,’ In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be ‘changed’ – (I Cor.15:51,52). This is a promise of God and change to believe in. The rapture change – translated and changed into another form.

 

   At the rapture trumpet, both the living and the dead saints in Christ, will be changed in an instant and together will be caught up in one body in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air. First we will be changed into spiritual, eternal, incorruptible, immortal bodies. We will be translated into a new body not of flesh and blood and then we will be caught up before the great tribulation and the wrath of God because we have been saved from God’s wrath, both on earth and in hell. But in order to receive this outward body change you need to first receive the inward change by being born again. Translated means to change from one form or appearance to another: and just before our translation change comes Obama’s motto – “change to believe in.” Are you watching?

 

   Repent of your sins and by faith believe in Christ in your heart and you will receive forgiveness of sins and became a new born again creature in Christ. Christ is the change to believe in. Be saved by the only Savior, the Lord Jesus. Be changed inwardly by Christ – be born again. “That which is born of the flesh is flesh: and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again” – (Jn.3:6,7). Be changed and be ready for the great rapture change. It’s coming soon. 

 

CHRIST: CHANGE WE BELIEVE IN.
