Commentary By: Gordon King
There has been an increase of evil, sin, hatred, division, murders, heinous crimes, Islamic terror, hunger, disasters, and disease in the past several years. In fact, it seems to be happening at such a fast pace right now that it’s almost impossible to keep up with it all. It seems to be a bit overwhelming!
The way I see it, this shall continue to increase until the return of Christ to earth! All of the evil and darkness will continue to escalate and overwhelm the masses. So much will be happening so fast and all at the same time, that people in the world will not know what hit them!
It’s like being a sleep during the beginning of a violent storm and then being hit with an F5 tornado! What in the world just happened?!
God is giving us warnings! Warnings to awake from our slumber and see what’s happening before it gets worse. We are now living in a storm, yet it shall be a much bigger storm I believe very soon!
The world is being shaken, yet do we feel it? Do we see it? Warning signs are all around us and yet most are oblivious to it!
Why is it that most people do not heed warning signs? They don’t do anything until disaster strikes, and then its too late! Even during natural disasters such as hurricanes, most people are not already prepared beforehand, they wait until the last-minute to purchase needed supplies such as food, water, flash lights and batteries. But, what if you get to the store and 200 other people are ahead of you, waiting in line just to enter the store? What if, when you get inside the store, you find the shelves empty?! What then? This happens folks, I’ve been through it.
God is telling us to return to Him, to humble ourselves and realize that we have sinned. To turn away from our sin and to accept Him, to live with Him and for Him! This is the first thing we should do in preparation for what lies ahead.
However, after saying that, God is also telling us that disaster is coming our way. He is telling us to prepare and be ready, for we do not know the hour of His return for us.
Do what you can to prepare yourself for disaster. Lets just say that all of the electricity went out, the stores were all closed down, the gas stations all closed down, all for an indefinite amount of time. Would you be ready to survive? Do you have enough food and water to last for a month, two months, three or more months?
The most important things that we should be stocking away for a disaster is food and water! These are essential for life. You don’t need tons of money to do this, purchase a few extra canned items each time you shop, store fresh water in empty containers. Try to have first aid supplies available, some candles and/or flashlights and batteries.
I’m not telling you this out of fear, but out of love. I’m telling you this because things will get worse. Disaster will strike. Be prepared!
God loves us and He is warning us ahead of time, before it happens! Are we listening?
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
