Commentary by: Gordon King
May the wisdom of God fill your mind, the love of God fill your spirit, and the Word of God be written forever in your heart. Amen
If I could just shake some sense into people. Make them wake up and smell the coffee. Open their eyes to the world around them. Why are so many people like zombies? Walking around as if they were deaf, dumb and blind.
People! People! People! WAKE UP!!! The time is now at hand, we are living in the end times folks. The return of Jesus Christ is upon us. He will be returning soon. The world is not going to get any better. That is a fact. The evil and wickedness of our times is only going to get worse. Why can’t they see it? Why can’t they feel it? It makes no sense to me. But, that is exactly what God told us would happen at the time of the end, the end of the age. Unbelievers, scoffers, people deceived by evil and demonic forces.
3 “And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.”
Not many people want to hear of the bad times. The times that are now and before us. They think that people like me are conspiracy theorists, doomsdayers, and bible thumpers. Well, if believing in the Word of God as all truth, makes me a conspiracy theorist, doomsdayer and bible thumper, then YES, I am all of the above thank you!
But, I tell you this, I speak only the truth. The Words of God Himself. Jesus gave us the signs of the times to be watching for his return. They are happening now folks. This is the time. We do not know the day nor the hour of his return. But, we shall know the season.
32″Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.”
This is it. It is near, even at the doors. The apostle Paul spoke of what people would be like in the last days before the return of Jesus.
2 Timothy 3:1-5
Perilous Times and Perilous Men
1But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:
2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good,
4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!
We are living in perilous times. Times of evil, wickedness, unloving, unforgiving, lovers of pleasure, blasphemers, all of the above! I have been watching for the signs of Christ’s return and they are here and now. Nothing else needs to occur prior to the rapture of the church. NOTHING! Did you get that? NOTHING!!!
Listen up! Wake up! The time is now! The times are becoming more evil, hateful, and disastrous. Natural disasters will increase, economic collapse is just a mouse click away, wars are waiting in the wings, disease is rampant and increasing, food shortages are increasing, civil unrest throughout the world is on the rise, unusual and strange events will continue to occur on the earth and in the sky, murders and violence will increase, religious apostasy will increase, Christian persecution will increase, sin will increase!
If I can’t shake you up maybe the earthquakes will! Earthquakes will be increasing as well as other natural disasters, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes and fires. Don’t wait for disaster to strike before accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior. It may be too late.
