There are significant signs indicating that the second coming of Jesus Christ is close at hand, yet the Church is almost silent on end time prophesies. Is the Church more interested in things of the World ? Many Ministers preach prosperity and a feel-good gospel that goes over well with the crowd, but is that what God commands us to do?
♦Why is the Christian Church impotent regarding end time Prophesies?
♦ Are present day preachers and teachers ill-equipped to decipher Biblical Prophesies, which would enable them to warn God’s people?
♦ What’s behind the inability, or lack of will, why preachers/teachers preach-teach feel good gospel?
WHAT DOES SCRIPTURES SAY ABOUT WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN THE END IS NEAR?
There will be wars and rumors of wars, famine, men will become lovers of themselves, earthquake in divers places, floods, these are signs of the second coming of Jesus Christ. With the proliferation of communication devices it will be difficult for anyone to argue they never heard about our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ.
♦Revelation 22:11. After everyone has had a chance to make an enlightened, intelligent decision, then the “door of mercy” will close forever, just like the door closed to Noah’s ark before the flood (See also Genesis 7:16). Every human being will either be “righteous” and “holy,” or “filthy” and “unjust” (Revelation 22:11). There will be no more changing sides.
Biblical prophesies are happening around us daily. I do not profess to know what the final sign of Jesus’ return will be.
Revelation 7:1-3; 13:16-14:1. In the end times, during Earth’s last crisis, every living human being will make a final choice, choosing the side of Jesus Christ and the truth (receiving the “seal of God”) or the side of Satan and the “beast” (receiving his “mark”). Humanity will be divided into two great, final classes.
The Christian Church is almost powerless, where is the power that God has bestowed on us to go out and preach the word to all the world? Why are Preachers of the Gospel afraid to speak truth to power? What power is as great as the power of God? Why has the Christian Church adopted a go-along-to-get-along approach to the Gospel of Christ? Why is the Church afraid to preach against Homosexuality, sexual perversion, infidelity, immorality, and other un-godly vices? Where is the Church on “thus sayeth the lord”?
Christians cannot be afraid to be martyred for Christ. The Bible’s New Testament book of Acts, records the martyrdom of the Apostle James the son of Zebedee, and of Stephen, a believer who was killed while evangelizing. There are other accounts that up to 10 of the 12 Disciples were killed because of their Religious beliefs. If the Christian faith is the only true path to escape the calamity which is to come, how can we water it down yet expect that God will look kindly on us?
Jesus did not mince words he spoke truth to power, he called sin exactly what it was, sin, and yes he was killed. I am not advocating that Christians go out seeking to get killed. What I am suggesting is that we be less concerned about what the world think of us. After all the world needs to be saved , the world cannot offer us safety from the wrath to come. Why then are we mindful of what the world think of us ?
Even as the grip of the anti-Christ tightens , many are still totally blind to it.
666 AND THE MARK OF THE BEAST IS LAW:
Revelation 13:16-17. The “mark of the beast” will be enforced by governments around the world as a supposed “solution” to a global, desperate crisis. The majority of Earth’s inhabitants will not realize this is “the mark,” for they will be deceived. Revelation 19:20. The terms “beast” and “mark” are code words in the book of Revelation that God’s people alone will understand. They will know who the “beast” is, and what his “mark” is, while the rest of the world has no clue. http://www.end-times.info/
Whether we believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior or not , he is coming back and he is coming back soon. We can trust to our own intellect and understanding or we may choose to seek his face, the time is nigh. I urge you to seek Jesus, there is absolutely no time to waste.
