Do not be ignorant of the signs!

Ignorant of the times copy

Commentary By:  Gordon King

Hello folks,  I pray that all are well and under the protection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!  Amen

The signs of the times are all around us.  I see them every single day, and I see so much on the news reports that it can be a bit over whelming!  Actually, I see and read so much that it would be impossible for me to post even a small part of what is going on.

I have written in the past about strange events and occurrences happening over and over again, much more now then in the past.  Such as airplane, train, boat, bus, and car crashes.  Explosions and fires.  Murders, shootings, and crime.  Mass animal deaths without explanation.  Sink holes and unexplainable phenomena.

Most of these incidents in and of themselves are not very surprising, in fact one may argue that they are common.  However, when we continue to see such events unfold daily, they become a different animal.  They are happening in mass!  This my friends, or I should say “these”, are signs of the times that we are now living.  They are a wake up call.  We are heading into a time of judgment for the world.  This is the time of repentance, of turning away from our sins and turning to our Creator, Jesus Christ!

The following is just a snapshot of some of the events happening in our world today.  Click on the headline to read the article.

Mass Animal Deaths for 2015   6 March 2015

Our Dying Planet

Worldwide Bee Die offs

 

The list goes on folks.  This is just a smidgen of what I see posted daily.  These events are not common, unless they become common, which tells me that we are living in the last days before the Tribulation period.  The signs are all around us, if we only open our eyes and see! 

When I post an article on something, say for instance a shooting in an American city where several people have been killed.  This in and of itself may not seem like much.  However, when we continue to see this happen over and over again, in several cities in America and in the world, then it becomes a different matter.  This is my point.  These things are happening over and over, on a grand scale.  You must put all of the pieces of the puzzle together, stand back and take a wider look at things.  Then you will see things much differently.

I search for the news, so I do see it everyday.  I see patterns emerging which indicate a decay in society at large, in the world as a whole.  I see the decline in morals and values, the degradation of righteousness, the collapse of community.  I see the degree upon which people look upon others with disdain, and the importance of “self”.  The lack of regard for human life.  This is demonic and spiritually led.

I see world leaders lie, twist the truth, and fall into a trap.  They have bought into the lies and deception of the evil one.  Theirs is a destructive path, a path leading them straight to hell.  Unfortunately, they will lead many others with them.

I see the increase in natural and man-made disaster.  I see the increase of earthquakes, both in volume and intensity.  I see the swarms of earthquakes in various places throughout the globe.  I see an increase in volcanic activity, and the formation of new islands.  Things which we have not witnessed in the past, not in such numbers anyway.  I see the mass animal deaths, year after year.  I see disease and pestilence ravaging the land, killing people by the droves.  I see the spread of this disease, without a cure in sight.  I see old diseases which have been eradicated, come back to life!  This should be alarming to all who live on this planet.

I see droughts and starvation throughout the world.  I see millions of people dying yearly for lack of food and water.  I see plagues and death, world-wide disaster.  Could this be one of the four-horse men of the apocalypse, or is it merely a preview of what is to come?!  I fear the later.

I see civil unrest within and among the nations.  I see governments becoming harsher with their citizens, increased government control, and decreased civil rights.  I see it and I feel the tension.  I see wars and rumors of wars.  I see governments increasing their budgets for military spending, increased weapon purchases, and increased military build-up overall.  I see the tensions between governments, nations, and world leaders.  The tension is here and it is real.  It’s only a matter of time, a very short time I believe, that a major war will break out.

The Middle East is a powder keg waiting to explode.  How much longer will this destabilized area hold back?  How much longer before the nation of Israel is attacked on a grand scale?  Not long I fear.  The nations waiting to attack Israel, those nations mentioned and foretold about in bible prophecy, are aligned to do such a thing.  It will not take much to ignite the fuse.  Israel is the most hated nation on the planet.  This is true, this is bible prophecy.  We see it day in and day out.  The hatred, evil, and violence committed against God’s people, the Jews and the nation of Israel.  Anti-Semitism in the world is rampant, out of control, and on the rise.

Everything that we are now seeing happen in the world today, was spoken of about two thousand years ago by Jesus Christ Himself.  He told us to watch, actually He commanded us to watch and to be ready.  To know the times.  He did not want us to be ignorant of the times, nor of the closeness of His coming.

That’s what this is really all about folks.  About knowing that God Himself is coming back soon!  That the signs we see should wake us up, should show us that God is real, that we all have the opportunity to be saved.  To have a personal relationship with Him.  To be the children of God!  We will see signs and wonders, miracles, and unusual events.  This will happen.  Why?  So that we may know that God is alive and real.  That His return to earth is imminent.  I believe that the beginning of the Tribulation period will begin soon!

2 Thessalonians 2:1-4

“Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”

If you don’t yet know the God of the universe, Jesus Christ, then I strongly urge you to think about this wisely.  To repent of your sins and accept Him now.  The signs show us that we don’t have much time left.  Once the Tribulation period begins, which could be any day now, the Lord will cause all who do not love Him to believe the lies of the evil one.  He will give them a strong delusion.  This is true and is written in scripture.

2 Thessalonians 2:11-12

“And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

So if you wait too long, it just may be too late to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, too late to receive the free gift of eternal life, but instead eternal damnation! 

Eternal life is life forever with God.  It is love, joy, peace, safety and comfort for all of eternity.  Only God knows what He has prepared for us, what lies beyond this physical existence.  I cannot even imagine what awaits us on the other side.  I get excited thinking about it, about what the Lord will bless us with.  About what it will actually be like, to spend time with Jesus, our Creator!  How awesome is that?!!!  To have a meal with Him, to speak with Him, to do things with Him and for Him!  Amazing!

However, if you do not choose Jesus as your Lord and Savior things will be much different for you.  You will spend eternity in hell.  Away from God, forever.  There will be no joy, no peace, no love, no comfort, only torment.  Like the rich man who died and went to Hades, in misery, pain, and suffering.  By not choosing Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you have chosen to live without Him.  You have made your own choice.

Accept Jesus now as your personal Lord and Savior!

God bless my friends!  Until next time…..Maranatha!

  1. Incredibly true are your words my friend; incredibly true.
    The God who spoke the world into existence speaks to all who are willing to listen.
    “Stay awake, praying at all times for the strength to survive all that is going to happen, and to stand with confidence before the Son of Man.” Luke 22:36. God bless. Maranatha!

  2. I see and sense the same things Gordon, none of the times we life in are “normal” or if they are then we can say these times are the “new end times normal”. It really takes a lot of will and courage to investigate as it were behind the curtain and attach all these weird and violent events to the end times, but in fact as the horrors worsen we are only inches away from the tribulation. One thing that I have noticed is how much of this comes out of the human heart, it seems as though as the heart grows more wicked so does the weather and the natural elements of the earth. This is all activity spawned and carried out by demonic activity and it is not a local but a worldwide activity. The curtain will soon be drawn completely back and the 7 year tribulation judgment will engulf the world. Let those who have eyes to see and ears to hear take heed and watch and listen.
    “maranatha”

  3. Thanks Ethin. Good observation. It stems from what is truly in our heart. Evil and wickedness, or love, peace, and mercy. It’s a choice we make, of the flesh or of the spirit. Likewise, of Satan or of God. We cannot serve two masters.

    As for those with a hardened heart, the closer we get to the tribulation period the harder their hearts become.
    God bless and Maranatha!
