As I’ll explain later in the series on the Olivet Discourse, you can read the times just as you can read the weather and seasons and know what’s ahead with some degree of certainty. You can’t know the exact form it will take, but that doesn’t mean you can’t prepare. It’s obvious we’re in a cultural collapse that will take at least a generation to recover from if a new Reformation began today since the cult begets the culture. Western culture is based on Christianity and Rome. When Christianity is removed, only Rome remains. Many ministers have said that our culture looks more and more like the first century Roman empire each day but instead of the cult of emperor worship, our government holds to the ideology of cultural Marxism. Anyone who does not subscribe to this ideology is thrown into the outer darkness. Why be alone in the cultural outer darkness? Outside the camp (Hebrews 13:13) is the Christian church, which is the only place Western culture still exists. You can still find good churches in the United States.
