To My Friends and Loved Ones :: by Camilla Smith

I’m going to keep this short because TIME is short. That is why I am writing this. I love you all. We are all in different spiritual situations and I know some of you are saved and believe in Jesus Christ as your Savior, and some of you truly think you are saved, and some of you are not. The world is teaching us Satan’s gospel. The media has taken over the airwaves and is spinning what they want people to believe.  It is false, it is antichrist and it is directly from the evil one.

First, I want to say that the Bible has told us EXACTLY what we are to be looking for in the wrap-up of history as we know it.  If we think the world will just keep spinning, we are not in step with what God tells us in His Divine Word.  Below is a simple list of the things that will happen in the last days…and we are there.

God plainly tells us in Scripture that there will come a time when there is confusion among men, pestilence (disease), drug addiction like never before, rumors of wars like never before, natural disasters like never before, religious murders like never before, a combination of religions like never before, and I will list many other things that He tells us will take place. All these things are happening at a very rapid pace….also like never before.

The media will keep you entertained and distracted by the latest scandal or debate, the latest chapter of a singing competition or sports season, while behind the scenes, a brutal, decapitating, crucifying extremist army (the media will diminish them and call them a group) is taking over the entire Middle East, city by city, nation by nation.

It is happening faster than anyone could have imagined.  The political ring has so confused the picture and muddied the waters that we as a nation don’t know who we support, who we SHOULD support, and who it is right to support.  Other major players are threatening and being threatened, andthe very biblically-prophesied nations to be included in these end times wars are lining up right before our eyes…showing the absolute perfection of God’s prophetic Word.

What are the other signs that society and the world are in an end-of-days scenario? I’ll let God’s Word be the proof:

2 Timothy 3:1-5: “But realize this, that in the last days, difficult times will come. For men will become lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; avoid such men as these.”

Jesus told the disciples in Matthew 24:5-7, that in the end days, there would be an increase in  the following occurrences, like birth pangs that increase before labor: Wars and rumors of wars, nation rising against nation, kingdom (tribe) against kingdom, famines and earthquakes. Jesus also told the disciples:

“They [the enemy] will deliver you to tribulation and will kill you and you will be hated by all nations because of My Name” (Matthew 24:5-7).

Jesus further, told His disciples that many false prophets would come on the scene in His Name, proclaiming to be the Christ or Christ-like. I don’t have to go into any detail to tell you how this is happening today—you instinctively know it is.

I promised to keep this short, because I know so many are very busy, but I hope you are not TOO BUSY to take a few moments to consider your eternity. You have two choices. Eternity in heaven versus eternity in hell. The soul never dies. The soul will live on FOREVER. Where your soul spends eternity is your choice.

If you do not have a close, personal relationship with God’s Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, who Himself said: “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me” (John 14:6),  then you will spend eternity in hell. This may sound narrow and non-inclusive, but Jesus also said:

“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are FEW WHO FIND IT” (Matthew 7:13-14).

Many religions will say that Jesus was a great man and a true prophet. They will extoll the virtues of a wonderful man named Jesus, but they will not claim that He is the Messiah. Jesus either truly IS THE SON OF GOD AND EVERYTHING HE SAID WAS TRUE, or He is the liar of all of history, and that would negate the “great man and the true prophet” theory.

Jesus is the Son of God. He died a vicious death in a crucifixion because God loved mankind so much. God knew that man’s sin nature could never be conquered by anything other than a price that was to be paid for our sin by His own Son. He died so that we may have eternal life. But we must be truly repentant of our sins and believe that He did this!

I’m pleading with you, my beloved friends, my dear relatives, please, please make your choice for eternal life.  You may not make it to work tomorrow. You may not make it home tonight. God is pleading with you to choose Him, to choose His Son. Accept Jesus’ mercy and grace while you have the time to do so.

The world will tell you there are many ways. This is a lie from Satan. There is ONE WAY. You have a choice to make. Time is nearly up. Please know that I am praying for you daily. Please also know that I am not judging you.

I do not know your hearts and I do not know where your eternal destination is. But I know where it can be and I want us to spend eternity together in God’s Kingdom.  And Jesus has prepared a place. All you have to do is say, “Yes, Lord, Yes.”
