Current Events Leading to Salvation!

bible-light-rays

Commentary By:  Gordon King

The world scenario is becoming more evil, wicked, and disastrous as the days pass us by.  Wars rage across the globe, rumors of wars increase, threats of attacks loom, and terrorist activity has never been higher.   Disease and pestilence is increasing and spreading with rising death tolls.  Famine is present throughout the land and threatens millions of people.  Earthquakes are increasing in numbers and intensity as never before recorded.   Increasing temperatures are causing drought, wildfires, and famine.  People are becoming hardened to the truth.  Men are becoming lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of righteousness.  Sin and evil is becoming right, and what is righteous is becoming wrong.

These are all signs of the end times.  They were spoken of by Jesus Christ Himself.  He told us to watch for all of these signs to occur together.

I have read articles by other Christians who say that it is wrong for other Christians to be focused on current world events.  That we should not be causing alarm.  That those who study bible prophecy should not be warning the world of what is happening as related to these events.  That all we are doing is putting fear into peoples hearts, rather than the word of God.

Well, it was Jesus Himself who told us to be watching for these events to occur. 

Matthew 24:42-44

42 “Watch therefore, for you do not know what houryour Lord is coming. 43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. 44 Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”

Jesus commanded us to watch and be ready.  He wants us to know the season of His return.

Matthew 24:32-35

The Parable of the Fig Tree

32 “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near—at the doors! 34 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.”

We are to “watch” and be ready.  When we see all of these things, then we know that His return is near, even at the door!

So, for another Christian to say that we should not be watching, that we should not be sounding the alarm, is not biblical.  It is against what God tells us.

I am in no way saying that current world events should be our main focus.  That we should only be concerned with what is happening in the world.  Our main focus should always be God!  Jesus Christ is the reason, He is the purpose, and we should never forget that!

Putting fear into peoples hearts, is that such a bad thing?  Shouldn’t we fear what is coming?  Shouldn’t we be ready for Christ’s return?  Shouldn’t we tell the world that what they now see happening around them has been foretold in the bible?  Shouldn’t we be warning the lost that without Jesus as their Lord and Savior they are doomed to eternal death?

This is our command from God Almighty!  There are many ways to reach the lost, to bring others to salvation, this is just one of many my friends.

Not only is this warning of what is coming for the lost, it is also for the believers as well.  We must waken the church!  We must bring an awakening to the body of Christ. 

Time is short, He is coming soon!  How soon you ask?  I have no idea, never said that I did either.  No one knows, but we are in the season according to scripture.  Time is different to us than it is to God.  Our time on earth is but a split second in the realm of eternity.  He may be coming for His bride today or maybe in ten years, I don’t know.  But I do know that today we are closer than we have ever been before!

If you are an unbeliever then you should fear what is coming.  However, if you are a born again, bible believing Christian then you should fear God alone. 

Fearing God as a believer is not to be afraid of God, but it is to have reverence for the Lord.  It is to humble ourselves, to bow down before Him and lay our lives at His feet.  To give Him all of the glory, the praise, and the worship that we can.  It is to know that we need Him in our lives for everything.  That He is Almighty, omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient.  That He is love, holy, righteous, and pure.  That He is our creator, our provider, our Father, our friend.  Elohim, Jehovah, El-Shaddai, Lord God Almighty!  He is our mighty Lord, God of the universe!

Until next time my friends, God Bless!

  1. 11/20/04 From God The Father – A Letter Given to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
    I am The Lord your God, I am The Only God, and to you I speak this day of those things which must shortly take place. For the tide has turned, and those married to this world have forsaken Me. They have turned away and fight against Me, yet I shall surely turn many back again. And though they are a very hard-hearted generation, a very foolish and deceitful generation, who say, “God is dead, and The Christ only myth”… Behold, I shall turn them back again!
    Therefore I say, to this most wicked and adulterous generation: Know you not, that vipers have latched onto you?! Behold, every manner of snake has filled you with poison, and soon you will be devoured and find yourself in the belly of the beast!… Therefore fear, I say! Fear! For vipers are already among you, and the beast waits eagerly to devour you! Yet understand this: The beast fears also. At his very heart he trembles, for he knows I am coming down.

    Behold I am coming down!…

    To speak to those of this wicked generation, who say I am dead,
    To show them the mighty hand of God!…

    For I shall divide the heavens
    And shake the earth with My voice!

    Behold! This generation has awakened a sleeping giant! To wrath and to judgment have they awakened Him! For His anger burns hot!… Seven-fold does it burn! For seven years I shall pour out judgment, and My fierce anger shall be revealed in all the earth! Then they shall know, I AM THE LIVING GOD, shattering every doubt! Then shall the division be made clear, and much rebellion shall ensue!
    Peoples of the earth, turn to Me or against Me, for the truth of My being is beyond all argument!… Choose, I say! Choose!… For not one, who dwells upon the earth, will remain in ignorance of Me or My Word in that day! All will know, I AM THE LORD!
    And when the time of choosing is ended, and the death of the saints is finished, those who remain true to the beast will gather together against My holy city, to fight against The King and make war. Then shall The Son of Man appear, in full power and great glory, coming upon the clouds! And His saints do follow Him! For His power is the power of God! And His glory, an all-encompassing fire!… Woe to all those who gather together to fight against Me! They shall be consumed in the brightness of His coming and slain with the sword of His mouth! For He has cleansed the earth with His blood… And by the blood of evil men will He finish it!

    Therefore, let this be a sign unto you:
    First, the reaping of all who belong to Me.

    Then shall I shake the very foundations of the earth,
    To loose yet even more harvest.

    Then shall I wipe the slate clean, it is finished…

    Behold, a New Day!

  2. Well said. Come Lord Jesus, Come! Maranatha! People need to be aware of not only current events but history as well; for it is being repeated on a grandeur scale. The prophecies are becoming reality with everyday that passes. “Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good” 1Thes.5:20,21 “All Scripture, is given by inspiration of God” 1Tim. 3:16 Let us be overcomers of the sins that binds us to this world. Let us be true to the Creator of heaven and earth. Let us lay our attitudes our desires our pain our sadness at his feet. Let us start the day with His blessing with a prayer (a talk) with the Lord of what the day will bring, of what you need to accomplish, of what is going on in your life, ‘the good the bad and the ugly’. All of it. Let us learn from him, let us accept His gift and ask Him to come into our hearts. Let us overcome our tendencies to sin in the little things so it doesn’t grow bigger, all with the help of Jesus through His Holy Spirit that guides us through it all. Jesus himself overcame and he wants us to overcome with His help and prayer; we are not alone. Ask him for wisdom, for help in what you’re going through, ask him to fortify you, to straighten your faith. And then end the day with a prayer of thanks. Doing this daily your day will go much smoother. And you’ll be at peace with yourself and with God. Keep your head high and looking up, Our HOME is not of this world. He will protect us and give us strength through out the challenges that face us. Let us focus on truth and trust God above all else in every aspect of our lives. Lets continue to stay watchful and alert to the times, as you have stated Gordan, there are many deceivers in this earth ready to denounce our faith. May our loving Father keep us safe and in His loving arms, in Jesus’ name. Amen. We’ll be home soon… Maranatha!

  3. On ruler’s head
    They put a golden crown.
    On politician’s head
    They put a nation’s crown.
    On beauty queen’s head
    They put a diamond crown.
    Sure, each is a clown
    As on Jesus’ head
    They put a thorny crown,
    Does He not frown?
