As the Lord has led, I have been writing a lot about His testing of saints and sinners. Christians new to the faith especially have to be asking “why does God need to test men since He already knows what is in our hearts?” The question is valid with multiple answers in which I will focus on Christians and our faith momentarily. In general, though, while God knows our hearts, we often do not. Also, we easily deceive ourselves thinking we are better and stronger than we are. God tests men’s hearts to prove the content He knows of that we may be judged accordingly, see our true state and repent or praise Him for His work in us (Psalm 7:9-17, 17:3-5; John 3:16-21)!
If the tribulation created by global hatred and murderous persecution that leads to “the falling away” is in part the testing of professing Christians as the Lord has led me to previously write, then the foretold “great Tribulation” that follows shortly after at the hands of the “man of sin” is the final exam (Matthew 24:15-22; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4, NKJV). The man of sin or lawlessness--“sin is lawlessness” (1 John 3:4, NKJV)--will seek to finish what is left to be done from the global persecution of Jews and Christians in destroying them, their respective approaches to salvation from the Bible and their tangible property throughout the earth. Faithful Christians will endure in faith and love.
