“For then shall be great tribulation, such as was NOT since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21, emphasis added).
In light of the end times, as we are seeing take place every day now, shouldn’t we be more concerned with what the Bible tells us than acquiring all that we can?
The “Great Tribulation” is an ominous situation, especially in light of the fact that the world will no longer be the same, as we know it. There is great thought in that prediction! In other words, if you so choose NOT to believe in a God, that’s just fine!
The point is though, there is definitely a God, HE hates SIN, and should you turn your back on HIM, HE will turn HIS back on you! Coming from a just God that should give you great pause to reflect on your choices concerning, HIM! It does NOT matter what YOU think or don’t think, it’s what GOD thinks and what HE has prophesied HE will do!
As the comedian Ron White stated, “You can’t fix stupid!” When you think about Tribulation, the likes of which “have never been seen in this world, no, never shall be” doesn’t that beg the question of where you will be in all of this? Think on this for a moment: Everyone loves to be a winner. Everyone wants to be on the winning side! Why? “No one likes a loser!”
2 Timothy 3.1: “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.”
Matthew 24.34, emphasis added: “Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.”
When we read this verse, the obvious question is “Which generation is Jesus talking about?
Jesus also said in Matthew 24.32-33:
“Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh. So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.” So where or how do these two passages intersect and make sense for us?
Jesus used the Parable of the Fig Tree to give us a hint as to the generation that will be alive at the time! Stop and think for a moment about a generational tree, Mom and Dad had children who grew up and then had, their own children, but the Mom and Dad are still alive, even in the midst of three generations.
Many of the baby boomers are still alive and healthy, with grandchildren today…that is the generation since Israel was accepted as a nation in 1948. This “baby boomer” generation will live to at least their 80’s right? It is still the generation that will be around for the Rapture! We are right now in this last generation, which will include the Rapture and thus start the Tribulation!!
As far as the Fig Tree it means the baby boomer generation and the children to follow as branches and leaves, but “that generation [baby boomers) shall NOT pass, until these things are fulfilled”!! Does this make sense to you now?
The prophecies of the Bible are 100% so far, which gives us every reason to believe that the prophecies to come will be fulfilled as well! There literally is no other way to think about it! You might as well write it on a piece of paper and then mark it as a “Done Deal!” Having tried to make this simple and easy to understand, it’s all the more reason (along with you not thinking of only yourself) to get your affairs in order now!
There will NOT be a second chance; you pick Jesus Christ or you don’t You have NO control over anything, absolutely NONE!
As I have stated before in other articles, there is a big black “line” and Jesus Christ is on one side and Satan is on the other! YOU will be on one side or the other as well. But you are given a choice, a chance to go to heaven. That means YOU must choose which side you want to be on!
“And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is, God” (Mark 10.18, emphasis added).
So if YOU are thinking to yourself that you are a “good person, God will save me,” YOU are dead wrong!! The verse above proves this! You MUST accept the gift of Jesus Christ otherwise you die in your sin! And your thinking, “It’s all about ME!” In a way you may be right, IF it comes to choosing Jesus Christ or NOT! Before…YOU…DIE!!
Matthew 7.13-14: “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at. Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
These are ominous verses that tell the whole truth, for every single person that has ever lived on this planet! It is the official statement that shows there is a choice that MUST be made, by each and every person, that no one is excluded and simply put it says: “Live forever or die forever!”
It’s one-way or the other, there is NO in between, NO other option, ONE decision with ONE outcome! God said so… that should be enough for all to understand!
I hope and pray that you will understand what has been written concerning the end times and know the “Gospel of Jesus Christ!” With every fiber of my being I KNOW…Jesus Christ IS the only way to peace and happiness in heaven! So I ask you to turn to Jesus Christ and give your life to HIM!
The ONLY peace and comfort for this world, which has entered the end-times is to be found in the blood of Jesus Christ on the cross. There is NO other way, just Jesus Christ! Jesus Christ IS God and always has been. Anyone other than Jesus Christ has been a human being, charged with the exact same need for Jesus Christ as you are now!
If YOU truly are thinking, “It’s all about ME” then you need to make sure where you will be when the Rapture takes place, or after you die for that matter!
There truly is only ONE GOD and Jesus Christ is HIS name!
