Commentary By: Gordon King
Evil, wickedness, sin, it’s all been around since the fall of Adam and Eve. But we must not forget, the world became so wicked, so vile and sinful that God destroyed the earth and its inhabitants with a great flood!
Since that time, the world’s population was virtually started over again through the family of Noah. The only family God found righteous and holy enough to continue on. The only family believing in God’s words!
And now we find ourselves in a similar situation, where evil and wickedness has permeated the world and it’s inhabitants. Where most societies laugh at and mock God and His words. A world in which righteous morals and values have been denigrated to the point of being viewed as evil and wicked themselves!
Have you ever wondered just why gays and homosexuals have taken the symbol of the rainbow as their own? I bet that most of them don’t even know why! Satan is clever, and he uses the things of God to show rebellion against God. The rainbow is a symbol from God, that He would never again destroy the world with a flood. He destroyed the world because of it’s wickedness, evil, and sin against Him. The homosexuals now use the symbol of the rainbow as a sign of rebellion, defiance, mocking God Almighty!
There are an estimated two billion Christians living in the world today. Yet, I would argue that many are not true Christians. Just how many call themselves believers yet do not know Christ?
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ “
The world in general has become anti-Christ! The mere mention of Christianity more often than not results in persecution of some sort or another.
God Almighty is patient and kind. Yet, just as in the days of Noah, there is very soon coming a time when He says enough is enough! I sense as though we are approaching that time. Ungodliness is reaching an all time high since the great flood. Blasphemy and abominations against God have increased dramatically over the past fifty years, and even more so over the past two or three years!
How many world leaders praise and worship God? I can only think of one nation, and that is the nation of Israel. Even the government of the United States of America, which was founded upon the values and principles of God, under God Himself, has turned it’s back on God! And even now, the nation of Canada has elected a very liberal Prime Minister. Not only is he very liberal, it is rumored that he has converted to Islam!
What nation on earth now stands in support of Israel? It seems to me that most if not all the nations of the world are against her.
“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. 3 And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.”
The world loathes the things of God, turns away from and blasphemes what is holy and righteous! Instead of turning to the one and only true God of the universe, they turn to the god of this world, Satan! For there is only but one God, Jesus Christ, I AM WHO I AM! Satan is an imitator, an impostor! He wants to be god, strives to be better than God, yet has already failed!
God will not be mocked! Those in the world seeking to destroy the things of God shall pay a heavy price. Their days are numbered and they will fall into eternal destruction! God’s justice is coming soon, His wrath upon the world is coming like the wind!
And if the wrath of God upon the world is closer than we may think, just how close are we to the rapture of the church?!
The rapture of the church is nigh, even at the door my friends! As the world comes to a boiling point, the pressure can only last so long until it gives way. Super heated water in a cup can explode, it has happened to me. And this is where we now find the world, past a rolling boil, at the point of exploding!
So just how much time do we have left? No one knows, but I would say not long. Biblical signs and prophecy are here and coming to pass! We were given these signs for a reason, and that reason is to know that we are close, even at the door!
If you are of the world, by that I mean not a born-again Christian, a believer in Jesus Christ, then I strongly urge you to accept Jesus Christ now! If you have persecuted Christians and lived for another god, or are an atheist, then I strongly urge you to repent of your sins and accept Jesus Christ now! God loves you, and without Him you will live in eternal destruction or hell forever! But, with Him you shall live in heaven with God forever! You will have peace, comfort, and much more than you could ever imagine! God has prepared for those that love Him, indescribable beauty, a new world and a new life! Heaven is real, and it is much more magnificent than anyone could imagine!
It’s not too late to turn from your evil ways and accept Jesus Christ now. But this may be your last chance! None of us know just how much time we have left, or how many opportunities we will get to accept Christ. You don’t have to clean-up your life first, just repent of your sins, believe, and accept Him! It’s really that simple!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
