A Biblical Conclusion to the Western Culture that Lost its Christian Roots

Reader comment on item: Britain's Encounter with Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: The source of Law indicates the GOD of the culture; Britain's GOD may be shifting from Christ to Allah...do you care ?

To this, and to the other observations that recognize the erosion of Western societies for surrendering the Biblical values that once made them great, the former strength of Biblical convictions that was under girded by faith in our resurrected Savior Jesus Christ is now wasted in the political realm, and such empty rhetoric as we have heard from the Anglican home community sounds hollow in the face of the Islamic ideology that is pervading the former Western bastions of Christiandom. Should we be surprised?

Reading this previous post we can easily answer no. Not only that, but further, we can say that the inevitability of the situation is prescribed by the Holy Scriptures, that a required ‘falling away' is a requisite preliminary to the completion of many prophetic passages. The circumstances we see Israel in today as the Islamic ideology swirls in eager anticipation of more Western and Israeli concessions to the Holy Lands are chapter and verse fulfillment of the closing days of the times of the Gentiles. Should we be surprised?

To the believing true Christians, the answer is, and should emphatically be, no. To all else, there is a plea to read and understand the Holy Scriptures as they pertain to the phenomena that is the Middle East and believe that the Eternal Almighty Sovereign of Israel is ready to execute the final pronouncements of Israel's destiny, and that to believe in the finality of such things as they happen is to believe that Jesus Christ is Who He says He is as these things are accomplished by Him, and to surrender to Him in prayer for salvation before it is too late. Think not?

The witness of His Word is there, and only in blindness to the truth does the world continue careening to the end of Western culture as we now know it today. Counter to that, Israel's destiny is to be completed according to the Word of the LORD and those who are watching its fulfillment as this is being written have good cause to rejoice as it does, for as it is written, "But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee" (Psalm 5:11).
