We all desire for those that are close to us to continue with us. But the closer we get to the end, the more folks seem to fall away. The bible predicted that there would be a great falling away in the end times. And the bible also spoke of Christ dividing us from our close friends and family at times. When people do not want to do right, they must find something wrong with right! In other words, right will always show up the wrong. Light will always show up what is hiding in the dark. So when people want to do what is wrong they must eliminate the light from showing them up. This is why they shun you, persecute you, and misuse you. They are trying to hide in the dark and the light in you is constantly making them feel bad.
Be strong people of God. Do not allow those that despise truth to hinder you. Do not allow them to alter your course. Do not allow them to stop what God is doing in you. You have chosen to follow God at all costs. That includes the loss of close friends and comrades. Those that you felt you could trust will bail on you when you stand on truth and they refuse to conform. After all, a person that has decided to push truth away and not do what God desires cannot be close to a true believer. You will make them feel less than and even cause them to hate you, all because the choices you have made, they refuse to make.
Some people just cannot do it. They cannot give up their selfish will. They cannot esteem others more important than themselves. They cannot focus on their family more than their own carnal desires. They cannot accept God’s creation roles. They cannot be who God wants them to be because they refuse to deny themselves, deal the pain of it, and follow Christ. But those of us that are striving for the perfect will of God must stay focused and endure until the end.
Stay focused, In Jesus Name,
G. Craige Lewis

Who is Antichrist? This question has baffled believers for many centuries and yet the answer is simple to obtain. The Scriptures reveal that in the end times there will be many antichrists. Because the church has been so focused on one global leader for so long, the spirit of antichrist has crept into the Christian church unawares. In this dynamic 6-part series, G. Craige Lewis unveils the spirit of antichrist and those men that promote it. False prophets, false doctrines, and Catholic-based hierarchies of the modern day church have distorted the true end times message of the bible. G. Craige Lewis deals with many of these falsehoods in this series and provides hope and instruction for our journey into the End of Days. Get your copy now!
