Commentary By: Gordon King
Much of what I am about to tell you is not pleasant, but it’s the truth. Many shall find it offensive, while others may find it frightening. We need to be prepared, to be ready for what lies ahead of us. I see the world quickly falling apart at the seams. I see the evil increasing daily. I feel the wickedness and sin abounding.
Tell me the world is not a mess. That the evil and wickedness is not intensifying. The fact is that each and everyday, I hear a new story about something even more wicked, more intense than I did the day before.
How much longer can this go on? What has to happen to end the madness? Or will it ever end?
The bible tells us that in the end times wickedness will abound, that the heart of man will grow cold. That men will be lovers of themselves, of pleasure, will be proud and boastful. That sin will increase, that deception will increase and cause many to fall. That hearts will be hardened and grow cold. Isn’t this what we are seeing now in the world? Does this not resemble the days of Noah?
The wickedness, the sin, the evil that we see around us will continue to get worse until the return of Jesus Christ. The world has fallen into a state of madness! The world is on a free-fall, like a snowball picking up speed and growing larger in size as it travels further down the hill. Once it reaches critical mass, there is no stopping it. The same with the world, once the evil, the sin, and the wickedness reaches critical mass, there is no stopping it. It shall continue to pick-up speed and intensify in size and mass.
We are all caught in the middle of this chaotic circus of events. We shall all die (unless we are raptured). There is only one lifeline out of this world and into heaven, and that lifeline is Jesus Christ! Without Him we shall surely die. Our future is bleak and hopeless. But, with Him we shall live! We shall have a way out, we shall have eternal life. Just as the people in the days of Noah, living in a wicked world full of sin, not heeding the call to repent and accept God. They all perished in the great flood. All but Noah and his family, the only ones to believe and trust in the one and only God of the universe. God sent them a lifeline and provided for all of their needs. So too, He sent us a lifeline, Jesus Christ!
I believe that we are now at critical mass. That the world has gone so far into the evil side, that it shall quickly intensify and pick-up speed. That the evil and sin will only get worse, much worse.
To be a believer, a Christian, is now to be persecuted. To face a changing world, one that will embrace evil, and seek to destroy those that follow the one true God of the universe. Jesus was persecuted, the apostles were persecuted, and Christians have been persecuted ever since, but it will get worse.
This is now the time to donn the full armor of God. To strengthen your faith, hold fast to what is righteous and true. Shine your light in a dark, dark world. For the time is soon coming for most Christians to face persecution. Spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ will become more difficult.
I know this may be hard to swallow, difficult to hear, but it’s the truth. Sometimes the truth hurts, it’s not always pleasant, but it must be made known.
Do not fear the world, do not fear what is coming, for He who is in us is greater than he who is in the world. He is with us and shall never forsake us. Stay strong in the Lord, build Christian relationships, study God’s word. Love one another, love your enemies. Remember that love covers a multitude of sins my friends. Let us be loving, kind, merciful and forgiving.
The only way to heaven, to have eternal life, is to believe in the only one true God of the universe, Jesus Christ! He is our lifeline, our way out my friends. He is the only way!
Don’t wait until tomorrow, what you should do today. Accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior now!
God bless my friends! May the Lord of the universe richly bless you!
