The time for reformation is at hand once again, so easily has the past been forgotten. The founding fathers of the reformation, as well as of the founders of the prodestant denominations would be apauled by what is going on… in Protestantism. (for a description of Protestantism see: What is Protestantism?) There are two pillars of the Reformation. The first is well known: Sola Gracia, Sola Christos, Sola Scriptura—Grace alone, Christ alone, the Bible alone. But few know the other pillar of the Reformation—the identity of the Antichrist. The reformers are unanimous on the identity of this power described and defined in Daniel. You will not find one reformer that did not identify the little horn power of Bible prophecy as the Holy Roman Empire that persecuted God’s Word and His people and magnified itself against Christ. This rather lengthy series points out our road towards End Times and the players in the New World Order……. Has Rome changed or is it still operating as a power that demotes Christ’s rightful place and sets itself up in the place of God?
The Protestant Reformation saw the advancement of the Gospel and an understanding of right doctrine that hadn’t been seen since the time of Christ and the Apostles. It drew Christianity out of the dark ages of the faith; a time when the Scripture was forbidden to be read in the language of the people, when superstition reigned, where abominations within the church leadership was a norm, and when a knowledge of the Truth was virtually unknown. But to the glory of God, He rekindled the fire of the Gospel, and it spread like a fire in a barn of hay. The Reformation has given us such a wealth of knowledge of the truth of Christ’s teaching that I personally will never be able to ingest all of.
