Forging A Deeper Faith in Spiritually Darkening Times

3.24.2010 By Chase Kyla Hunter

I penned this essay in late 2008. It seemed timely to repost it now.

====

The present age of the Kali Yuga, which Christians refer to as the “end times” brings every horror imaginable with it. A 28 year old Sunday school teacher has been arrested for the murder of an eight year child in California, stunning the small close knit community in which she lived.

Daily we see reports of children killing their parents, of entire families being gunned down by distraught freshly unemployed fathers, of unimaginable cruelties being acted out upon families by their own family members. Those who have placed all faith in the material world will fall apart as the material world falls apart, and we are seeing that phenomenon being acted out daily.

This dire season in which we live spiritually is not for the faint of heart. Guarding one’s faith against the daily onslaught of bad news and deepening darkness takes courage, energy, resolve and great spiritual fortitude. Those who love God are now tested to the very core of their own faith, as  New World Order media outlets like Newsweek magazine proclaim loudly the end of Christian America  in lewd uncouth cover stories, mocking the very spiritual foundations of America in every way.

Jesus warned of these times and talked to his disciples frequently in private about the great testing that the world would endure at the very end before His return: “the end of days”. We are living in that age now, where the spirit of Antichrist pervades every corner of the world, and every outlet of the NWO monitored American media.

These institutions must be reformed: that is to say re-formed, formed again, and before they can be formed again, the present forms must shatter to make way for that great reformation. That is what we are seeing now all around us.

This season of the profound testing of the faithful will last for many more years, and those whose faith in God crumbles in the face of what we are all seeing most likely had never moored their spiritual foundations properly in the beginning. Whether by intent or by accident, they have chosen to believe that the darkness of human evil originates with God, and that God is somehow liable for human evil. This is grave error spiritually and will only lead to more agony in the inner spiritual life.

The mistake of blaming the Heavenly Father for the evil of men is an old one, and it is the most common reason that individuals fall away from believing in and loving God, which is an entirely different matter than falling away from the church. That the Christian church is in grave crisis is apparent. People who love God and live out of that love do not kill their own family members and murder their neighbors’ children, obviously. When faith dies in the heart,  the holy fortress of spiritual armor within dies with it, allowing for the most unspeakable sins to enter in. This is what we are witnessing today in America and around the world.

God cannot pour the new wine of the Spirit, heralding the arrival of the New Heaven and a New Earth, into the old and aging vessels of the present Christian denominations in America, for many of them are now fraught with false and erroneous doctrines based on fear, control, spiritual misunderstanding, ignorance of deeper truth and religio-political corruption.

( Keep in mind that the NWO elite would very much like to co-opt the Christian religion into a tool they can use once again to control the masses, if civil unrest should disrupt normal life in America. They have already made plans to use local ministers as tools of social control if civil unrest escalates at any given time. )

These aging Christian institutions must be reformed: that is to say re-formed, formed again, and before they can be formed again, the present forms must shatter to make way for that great reformation. That is what we are seeing now all around us.Out of the present despair, crisis and chaos in the Christian  Church will eventually come renewed spiritual creativity, and more profound truth, beauty and goodness than this world has ever witnessed. One must hold fast to personal spiritual faith in God the meantime.

“The Church” is not a building, or a denomination, or a congregation, or a pastor, or even the Pope. “The Church” is contained within the citadel of the spritually alive and striving human heart, where it always has been, and it always will be.

So just as we all have been told, “Seek God with all your heart, mind and soul” and you will find that the church is alive and well within you. A fortress of faith forged from within will withstand all outer tribulation. I bear witness to this fact in my own heart. I invite the reader to once again recall that we are “in the world, but not of the world.”

If we resolve within to hold fast to the truth that lives within the depths of our hearts, and our hearts  remain tethered to the very heart of God, then we will guard our own souls against all darkness, both within and without. This is my prayer for the American nation today.
