I can remember, in my youth, when I was a Boy Scout we had a motto and we were taught to "Be Prepared". This past year that motto has come to my mind many a time, to be prepared. I have stocked several items that I knew that I might need in case of chaos, but my main thought was to have myself spiritually prepared for the chaos that we as Christians know is coming. I'm speaking about the chaos before the rapture of the Church and the seven years of tribulation. We are on the very fridges of that chaos right now. People with spiritual eyes can see this.
We are living in a era of time that this world has never seen before and a world that is of great interest to all of us, and even more so if you are a born again Bible believing Christian. Church leaders, government leaders, men and women who have a place of trust and authority, people that we have faith in, believing men and women of all classes, have their thoughts focused upon the actions and events that are taking place around us. Failing stock prices, the rise in prices of comities, the rebellion by most of the world, the strained, restless relations that exist between Christians and Muslims. All eyes are on Israel. People are wondering about every aspect and facet of their everyday life. and they realize that something great and decisive is about to happen, it looks very much like the world is on the threshold of a most tremendous crisis. Something the world has never seen before. Still with all the signs that are taking place in this world, there are many people who make fun of and laugh at the idea that this world will come to an end. Just like in Noah's day. We now have songs that makes fun at the idea of the end of the world and being ready for it. This is a depraved mindset that is captivating many a person throughout this world. We have leaders that have made laws that saves a whale, but kills unborn babies, laws that say it is okay for Adam and Steve to get married, and have taken God out of just about everything. These are things that just would not have happened thirty years ago. It is a fact that we are living in a un godly world and it is getting extremely worse every day! A world without God!
If you are a reader of the Bible and a person that studies God's word you already see and know that the Bible gives us the reality and the truth about what is really happening in this world. In other words you already understand what is getting ready to happen. The gospel message that is going all over the, at the very close of the account of earth's history, contains the strongest warnings ever given to man. These very warnings can also be found in God's Word.
And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: (Rev 14:6-10)
These scriptures tell us that Angels are even now holding back the winds of strife that the world has never seen before or could ever imagine, this will not come until the whole world shall be made known of Jesus and warned of its coming fate and doom. People in the world today think that there is so many troubles and trails, but there is a storm cloud gathering, getting ready to lose itself upon this earth; and when God shall tell His angels to lose the winds, there will be a sight of strife and conflict that no person could never think about or imagine. The Bible, and the Bible only, gives us the correct and truthful view of these things. The Bible reveals and tell the reader of the great and final scenes of the history of our world. The events taking place today are a forerunner to the final trials and events which, even as they draw near, will cause the world to tremble and the hearts of people will fail them because of fear. Before the rapture of the church we ( the Christians ) will see a lot of terrible things taking place such as we have never seen before, but thank God we will not be here when The Lord will un leases His wrath upon this world, because if we are saved by God's Grace we are going to be snatched out of this sinful world. If you have not prepared to meet your God now is just as good a time as any.
