In order for mankind to truly return to God with his whole heart, it is absolutely necessary that the individual have freedom of choice in regard to worship and religion so as to be able to follow his conscience and be led of God. The ONLY worship and service acceptable to God is true hearted service; anything forced or pretended is an abomination before God. “Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.” Romans 14:5.
Because only those who turn to God with this wholehearted and fully persuaded service can be part of God’s kingdom at the end of this world’s history, Satan has always been at work to inspire people to seek to force and rule the
consciences of their fellow beings. When religious powers fail to find enough force to do this, then civil power is sought and the combination of church and state used to crush out free religious inquiry, and cast down any who would seek to serve God according to the dictates of their conscience.
Prophecy tells the story of this desolating work which has arisen over and over again to trample rights and freedom underfoot and bathe the world in the blood of martyrs. It warns clearly that we are already on the verge of the biggest confederacy to do this very thing again and shows us behind the scenes the powers bringing it to pass. Study the books of Daniel and Revelation prayerfully, and carefully, for deception is rampant and we must be sure to be found on the right side of this conflict soon to hit the world.
“And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. And they sang the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb.” —Revelation 15:2-3
