Amazon’s War on God

The Bible prophesies that in the end time the whole earth will rebel against God’s laws in an unprecedented manner, particularly the rulers. “Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us” (Psalm 2:1-3). We see the fulfillment of this everywhere, which is evidence of the nearness of Christ’s return. The “kings” today include the captains of transnational mega-corporations, which have wealth and power unknown to previous generations, and they are indeed taking counsel together against the LORD and His Christ and His laws. One of the most fundamental of God’s laws is stated in the very first chapter of Holy Scripture: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them” (Genesis 1:27). The LGBT agenda, which is universally supported by global corporations and the most powerful of the social media entities, is a direct and brazen affront to God’s law. The rebellion now extends to censorship of voices against their agenda. For example, this year Amazon banned Ryan Anderson’s When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment and banned ads for Abigail Shrier’s Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters. There is little to nothing that God’s people can do about these things politically and judicially, but we are not powerless by any means. Prayer can hinder the mystery of iniquity, which is the spirit behind the lawlessness and anarchy, because God is currently in the business of hindering it, and He answers prayer. “For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way” (2 Thessalonians 2:7). A few verses later, Paul asks the churches to pray “that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men” (2 Thessalonians 3:2), and he would not model such a prayer if God were not interested in answering it. We would beseech God’s redeemed people to pray daily against the devil’s antichrist agenda. Eventually, God will allow the mystery of iniquity to prevail briefly, but that will not occur until after the Rapture. As for what God thinks of the mega-corporations’ war on His laws, we are not left to wonder. “He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure” (Psalm 2:4-5). This refers to the day of the Lord which is always “at hand.”
