I wonder how many people are able to see the writing on the wall today? Oh, you can sit there and say that you don’t see anything different going on, but is that the truth? The question is this:
“Are we or are we not in the last days?”
Here is some Scripture to get those mental cogs moving and for some, those cogs are a little rusty from sitting idle:
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come” (2 Timothy 3:1).
“But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived” (2 Timothy 3:13).
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” (2 Timothy 4:3-4).
My friends, let’s not delude ourselves here. Here is the plain truth: Weare…indeed…in the last days. All of us around the world have seen the tsunamis, the huge hurricanes, the tornado swarms, the ground opening up in huge holes, so on and so forth. Nations are against nations and kingdoms are against kingdoms…we are in the last days. Let’s stop fooling ourselves and call it what we all know it is.
Time and again we have seen big televangelists take the big fall from grace, we see the people turning from their churches, for varying reasons, whether true or not. So the question is, what do you call this? A falling away, the Apostasy of the church. Is this not written in the Word of God?
“That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:2-4).
“That the day of Christ is at hand” means we are in the last days. And then we read about the falling away, this is the Apostasy of the church of Jesus Christ. It is where the people that once hungered for the Word of God have turned their ears and minds from the Word of Truth, because their ears “itch” to hear things that fulfill them in this day and time. We call this the “prosperity” and the “feel-good” gospel.
The problem is this: If you chase after those types of teachings you are busy hoarding stuff for yourself, stuff that is physical—NOT spiritual. You are tired of hearing about SIN and the resulting destruction of it, so you hunger to hear how wonderful you are; how God is going to bless you with more money and how happy you will then be. That is a lie.
If that is what you want to hear, then know, that it is the gospel according to Satan and his ilk. Know that you are being deceived…you are not inclined to the absolute truth. The physical stays right here on earth…but you will not stay here on earth. If you do not go in the Rapture, you will stay right here on earth until you die. Once you join everyone else in the spiritual realm, you will be judged by Jesus Christ.
You will go either to the Great White Throne of Jesus Christ or you will go to the Bema Seat of Jesus Christ.
The Great White Throne of Jesus Christ is where they will look to see if your name is written in the Lambs Book of Life. If it is not written there, guess where you will go? The lake of fire!
If you go before the Bema Seat of Jesus Christ, you will be rewarded for your work for Jesus Christ while alive here on earth. You will be in heaven for eternity.
I am not saying this to you, the Word of God is saying it. I am simply relaying to you that YOU have a choice to make. To be able to make that choice you need this information. You are not able to get to heaven by any other way than through Jesus Christ and that means with His blood covering your sins. You have heard that God is no respecter of persons. Do you know what that means?
HE doesn’t care how wonderful you think you are, HE doesn’t care how powerful you think you are. It does not matter how high your position is, if you are NOT covered by the blood of Jesus Christ—you will NOT see heaven. You must come to Jesus Christ, humbling yourself before Him and ask Him to forgive you of your sins.
You must accept His gift of grace to you in all humility. You must bathe in his blood from the Cross at Calvary and give up your life to Him. You must hang your “old self” there on His Cross and become a “new creature.” It is so simple, it hurts. There is NO other way!
Priests are humans just like you and me and there is NO intercession to heaven through them. They must accept the same as you and me, and that is through Jesus Christ alone. No one is able to pray you into heaven, Mary is not the queen of heaven. Jesus Christ is God and HE is the only way to heaven.
If anyone tells you any differently…they are lying to you. Read the Word of God…your Bible…and believe what is there. It is the absolute truth, from God’s lips to your ears and mine.
The Apostasy is here and now, the persecution of Christians is here and now, the world is evil beyond compare, just as it was before the Flood of Noah. Just as it was before the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. The Rapture of the church of Jesus Christ is so close, that it hurts. And to be very honest with you, the lack of this knowledge by the vast majority of people pains my heart. I can’t even begin to tell you how it must pain the heart of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
If you walk into a church and you feel like you are in the presence of the Lord, if you feel humbled…do you listen to your feelings? Do you ever wonder if God is trying to tell you something? Do you ever go to a funeral or a wake and sense some sort of fear? Do you think the Lord is trying to tell you something? Have you ever wondered if you are being called to, that God may be trying to get your attention? Then wake-up and answer Him.
As you go about your day, as you hear the news of all the death and destruction and you’re still alive and doing fairly well, do you get the sense that something BIG is about to happen? You see everyone across the planet is screaming for peace and yet the wars escalate. Do you think to yourself, something is very, very, wrong?
People on this planet will never be able to bring about any peace. That is because everyone is as fallen as you are, we are of the exact same species as everyone else and we humans are fallen from grace since Adam and Eve. It’s called SIN!
It is because of our SIN that this world is so corrupt, so fallen, so lacking peace and harmony. And if peace and harmony are what you seek, then Jesus Christ is the only One that has it and You must go to Him. Hatred, anger, selfishness, death and perversion are here because of people listening to Satan and his ilk. Why do you think the Word of God says this?: “You must take up your Cross, deny yourself and follow me [Jesus].”
There just ain’t NO other way! It’s that simple.
I am going to say it again and I will keep saying it: There is no Allah, there is NO other God, there is no one that can get you into heaven, pray you into heaven; there is NO queen of heaven. There IS ONLY Jesus Christ.
“For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2).
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30).
I do NOT see any other name in Scripture…than Jesus Christ!
Jesus Christ IS God!
“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city” (Revelation 22:12-14).
