The COEXIST/Ecumenical Movement alludes to the possibility of utopia, but that is as far as it goes. Revelation 13:10 shows us a picture that their goal can only be achieved by subjugating people,
“If anyone is to go into captivity,
into captivity they will go.
If anyone is to be killed with the sword,
with the sword they will be killed.”
If the world is being ushered into an era of peace, there would be no need of the scenario above, but since Bible Prophecy is accurate, we are forewarned that the lawlessness we are now experiencing precedes the coming of the lawless one,
“For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work, but the one who now restrains it will continue until he is taken out of the way.”
2 Thessalonians 2:7
Just like the most recent mandates, in the not too distant future, Christians will have to compromise a core belief. Doing so dilutes the truth of John 14:6 in order to be on board with this movement.
To those who hold to the belief that Revelation 13 does not speak of a future event, they would need to consider the fact that verses 16-17 has never happened in recorded history. Also, we are experiencing in real time—not being able to conduct business unless we comply with certain mandates.
“Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? 35It is fit neither for the soil nor for the manure pile; it is thrown out.“Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.”
To remain salty is to not become one with the world.
“Salt is good, but if the salt loses its saltiness, with what will you season it? Have salt among yourselves, and be at peace with one another.”
