Desperate Yet? :: By Dennis Huebshman

After listening to several prophecy experts in just the past few days, it has become plain to me we are not just in the last days, but right at the point where our Lord and Savior will call us to meet with Him in the sky to take us to be with Him forever. That is, ALL who have believed in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. A whole bunch of people will be here to “greet” the antichrist and enter the worst 7 years this earth has ever seen. The majority (at least 2/3) will not survive. Any who desire to accept Jesus after the Rapture will still be able to do so, but most likely at the cost of their very lives. (any emphasis mine)

This is becoming evident with the attitude toward Christians today. More and more, the world is being “programmed” to accept what it has to offer, and to call anything Christian as a hate philosophy. Satan is directing people to challenge Christianity as a “religion” of hate, when it actually is a lifestyle of love. Our God is not a God of hate, but of love as demonstrated in John 3:16 and Romans 5:8. He never forces anyone to accept Him or His Son or the Holy Spirit. Most other religions do not allow a personal relationship with their so-called gods, and some will even kill everyone who will not accept their deity. Jesus even commanded us to “love our enemies,” yet to not accept their sin (Matthew 5:44).

One example is in Nigeria where Christians are the “target” of the day. There have been people martyred for accepting Jesus as their Savior, and this is not a new event. Recently though, a major movement has been underway to eliminate as many Christians as possible. Whole villages have been wiped out, and hundreds of Christians – men, women and children – have been killed. Yet, the world hardly blinks an eye at this atrocity.

America was founded on Christian values, and has allowed people to worship, or not, as they wished from the very beginning. Over just the last decade, Satan’s followers have begun attacking Christian businesses, and even children in schools for standing by their beliefs. To add to this, God’s chosen people – the Jews – are being attacked worldwide just for being Jewish. It’s exactly as the Bible said it would be just before the return of Jesus to call all believers Home. When I say “all,” I am not referring to any organized religious organization, but everyone from all walks of life that have put their faith, belief and trust in the Savior for having provided them with an eternal home.

The turn against the Jews and Christianity is not anything that is new to the Father. In Matthew 7:13-14, Jesus told of the straight and narrow way to come to Him, and few will follow it. However, the way to destruction is wide, and many will be on it. People get so ingrained with what’s going on in this world that they forget it’s only temporary. Even if a person were to live to be 120, that would be just a blink of an eye in comparison to eternity. Yet, for that “blink,” people are willing to give their souls to Satan just to have one more “thing” that will ultimately perish with this world. Satan and his demons are working overtime to get as many souls as possible.

My life verse is John 14:6: “Jesus said, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father, except through Me.” I believe this with all my heart. No rituals, good deeds or anything else anyone believes they can do to “earn” their way to Him is wasted effort. Once a person accepts Jesus and believes in Him as their Savior, their final address has changed from the Lake of Fire (Revelation 20:11-15) to an eternal home with Him. We do not earn anything through works (Ephesians 2:8-9), but after one accepts Jesus, they will want to honor Him by the way they live for Him. And No, all “gods” are not the same, and there’s not many ways to heaven, as some are preaching today.

Satan has been a liar from the very beginning, and will continue all the way to his final destination in the place made specifically for him and his demons (Revelation 20:10). He loves to do anything that causes people to turn away from the Righteous Creator of the Heavens and Earth – The Lord God Jehovah. God allows him certain latitude, for now, but the day is coming soon when the Father will take His wrath out on this earth, and all who are a part of it. Open satanic worship is in place around our country and the world, which is another sign of our deteriorating world values.

All who call on the name of the Lord will be saved (Joel 2:32; Acts 2:21 and Romans 10:13). Jesus is never too busy to take anyone’s call, and will send the Holy Spirit to live within them until that person leaves this earth, either by death or rapture. We will receive imperishable immortal bodies, and a mindset that will not be subject to sin. No more pain, death, greed, foolish pride, hate or anything of that nature, ever again.

We are seeing things take place today that even 10 years ago would have been unheard of. Planned Parenthood – which is a misnomer in itself – is backing any person of authority that says it’s alright to kill a baby at birth. They spend millions of dollars on political candidates that will keep their philosophy in motion. In Matthew 18:6, Jesus said anyone who would cause little ones to sin would be better to have a millstone tied around their neck and be drowned in the open sea. That would also apply to anyone who would cause any type of harm to them as well.

People are seeing things change, and there is an anxiousness as never before in the past generation. Our lives are being influenced more and more by artificial intelligence (A.I.), and it will only get worse. All the means are being put in place for the arrival of the antichrist, so that he can control the whole world from one location. This was not possible even 25 years ago, but is there today. Daniel said knowledge would increase, and it’s growing by leaps and bounds daily. One prophecy expert said we are not only seeing changes day-by-day, but lately hour-by-hour.

Those who belong to the Savior, while feeling somewhat tense by what’s taking place worldwide, are not really fearful about their future. We know it will end soon, and we will be taken out of this total mess. The new world order has been active in forming a one-world government, and even a one-world religion in preparation for the arrival of their leader. We as Christians, need to look up for our Salvation in the only name by which we can be saved. (Acts 4:12). Though we do not approve of many of the changes taking place, we’re not “desperate” as is the rest of the world.

There is no way to set a day or hour that the Savior will be coming back. It could be this very day, or it could be sometime in the near future. We were commanded to recognize the signs given by Jesus, Paul and others, and all those signs are here now. God is not slow in keeping His promises (2 Peter 3:9), but will one day soon set everything in motion for the actual touch-earth second coming of His Son that will take place at the end of the Tribulation. He has also promised that all who have accepted Jesus prior to the Tribulation will be kept from the Wrath – Tribulation. God always keeps His promises.

Release your “desperation” and call out to Jesus today. He will turn no one away who is truly seeking Him. It will be the greatest moment in your life on this earth so far and will put you in line for the greatest event that will ever take place for believers – The Rapture (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and 1 Corinthians 15:51-53). You have not sinned so great that you cannot be forgiven. The only unforgiveable sin is to not accept Jesus before you take your last breath on this earth. His blood covered all of us. He loves us just that much.

Come Lord Jesus!
