Matthew 24:1-5; “Jesus left the temple and was going away, when His disciples came to point out the buildings of the Temple. But He answered them, ‘You see all these things, do you not? Truly, I say to you, there will not be left here one stone upon another that will not be thrown down.’ (Fulfilled AD-70.) As He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately saying, ‘Tell us when these things will be; and what will be the sign of your coming at the end of the age?’ And Jesus answered them, ‘See that no one leads you astray. For many will come in My name, saying ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray.’” (any emphasis mine)
Would everyone agree that just within the past seven months, this world has taken a whole new turn? On top of that, it hasn’t been a turn for the better. The radical left has gone totally over the edge, which is biblically prophesied.
Because of a supposed highly contagious and deadly virus, whether man-made or not, the social status of this planet has changed drastically. No longer do we have freedom of travel from one area to another; and this includes travel within some states’ own borders. I am not saying there’s no virus, just that it’s being used for the New World Order’s purposes.
Jesus had been in the Temple in Matthew 23, and gave the seven “Woe Be’s” to the Scribes and Pharisees. To sum up, He called them down for being so haughty and pious, and for placing burdens on the people that God never meant to happen. One famous line was Matthew 23:24; “You blind guides; straining out a gnat, and swallowing a camel.” Verse 28, “So you also, outwardly appear righteous to others, but within you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.”
From the time of Moses, forward to the time of Jesus’ first appearance here, the “religious leaders” constantly “redefined” what was proper and what was sin. Only issue here is it was their own will, not God’s will. Pride was, and still is, a major problem, as these leaders saw themselves as superior to the general population.
God is not so inclined, and is not a respecter of persons (Acts 10:34; Romans 2:11; Deuteronomy 10:17; Job 34:19; Romans 10:12; Galatians 2:6; 1 Peter 1:17 and James 1:17 for examples). His words are meant for everyone to follow and are not all that difficult to understand. The only hard part is in the minds of the beholder, because they do not want to give up what they deem “pleasures” of this earth. The lures of Satan, for some, are stronger than the promise of eternal life with Jesus. The “here-and-now” is what counts in their minds.
This is no surprise to the Father and His son Jesus, and was prophesied by numerous biblical prophets who were dedicated servants of the Lord.
In 1 John, the apostle gave several warnings about what would be taking place. 1 John 2:15-16; “Do not love the world, or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him/her. For all that is in the world; the desires of the flesh, and the desires of the eyes, and the pride of life; is not from the Father, but is from the world (Satan).”
1 John 4:1-3; “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God; for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God; every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh, is from God; and every spirit that does not confess Jesus, is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming, and now is in the world already”. This is all taking place today to prepare the way of the ultimate antichrist and false prophet of the 7-year tribulation, which is right around the corner.
Satan was present even before the creation of this earth, and his influence has been around all through our history. Do not be deceived; he knows the Bible and Bible prophecy better than all our scholars today. He just uses this to twist God’s words to fit his evil agendas, and his demons follow his lead.
Believers understand that the end of this age is coming rapidly, and we’re waiting for the Rapture (1 Corinthians 15:51-53; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17). As followers of our Savior, we are indwelt with the Holy Spirit, and the truth of God’s word is obvious to us. This doesn’t stop Satan from trying to pull us away from the Savior, and therefore we need to be diligent with our relationship with Jesus.
For example, we wonder how anyone can be deceived so fast. Once the ultimate antichrist is revealed, God will send the people that are left behind a strong delusion that will make the wrong seem right. Just as Isaiah 5:20 states where wrong is right, and vice versa, 2 Thessalonians 2:11 tells about the delusion. This does not mean there cannot be a partial deluding force today that is preparing people for the disappearance of all believers. Even though the present statistics say true believers worldwide are about 10% of the total population, and Israel’s total Messianic Jews worldwide number about 1% to 2%, there are already plans being put out to explain disappearances. God knows who absolutely will not accept Jesus today.
One prophecy expert tells about an organization that is totally illuminati oriented (Satan inspired), and they are already preparing the planet for vanishings that will soon take place. One of their spokespersons says there will be “solar flashes” that will take place, and every person on this planet will experience “evolving DNA.” The flashes are reported to be designed to “remove” any negative influences, and therefore “bad” people will disappear, leaving the “good” people behind. Oh Yes, and it’s said that the timing of this event is unknown, but will take place at any moment. Just enough Bible prophecy to fit their story.
Personally, I will believe God’s word about “believers being taken up to meet Jesus in the air” so we will miss the coming wrath (1 Thessalonians 1:10; 1 Thessalonians 5:9 and Revelation 3:10). By the time those left behind realize they’ve been deceived, it will be too late.
Please know there will still be people who will accept Jesus after the Rapture, but most will be martyred for this. We have no idea when God is going to send Jesus for us, but to avoid the unbelievable evil and terror this world will go through, we must receive and accept the gift He gave us at Calvary before the Trumpet of God sounds, and the archangel gives a shout. Every sign is here for the first time, and the Rapture is very near.
It is absolutely certain this taking up will happen, as God’s word is totally true, and He cannot lie. (Titus 1:2; Hebrews 6:18). People sometimes have a tendency to put things off until a more “convenient” time. This should not be the case here as the Savior could call at any moment. Today would not be too early to call out to Him to be saved (Romans 10:9-13).
All who refuse to accept the Savior will have chosen the Lake of Fire (Hell) forever (Revelation 20:11-15). After your last breath on this earth happens, there can be no redemption. The decision will have been made; and the choice is totally ours.
Jesus, James, John, Peter, Paul and others all warned what the atmosphere would be like just before Jesus comes for us. If you can’t see the changes that are taking place daily, stop and look again. Then call on Jesus; it will be the absolute best decision you will ever make.
Maranatha! (Come Lord Jesus!)
