Commentary By: Gordon King
The world is in crisis, there is no doubt about it! Yet so many don’t really seemed concerned, nor do they seem to care about what is happening in and to the world.
The world is in chaos, confusion, and headed for utter disaster. Economic collapse looms, civil unrest is rising like the oceans upon our shores, and international tensions threaten our very existence! Wars and rumors of wars are in the headlines of our local papers almost daily. The threat of annihilation from terrorist countries and the Islamic world have taken a stranglehold on the rest of the world. Mass migration of millions of refugees from the Middle East and North Africa threaten the way of life for millions of other people living in foreign lands. Morals and values in society are decaying faster than we can keep track.
Natural disasters have taken the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in their wake in recent years. Volcanic eruptions have been more frequent and larger in scale and devastation, as are earthquakes! Tropical storms which in years gone by have been nominal in frequency and intensity, however in the past few years they have intensified into “Super Storms”, never before recorded as such in human history. Diseases of unimaginable horror and destruction have developed, super-bugs in which there are no cures or antibiotics available to stop them are threatening the lives of millions. Droughts of biblical proportions are causing millions to fear where their water will soon come from, and the threat of world-wide food shortages is but a blink away!
Governments are becoming more demanding of its citizens, and less tolerant of personal morals and convictions. Citizen rights and liberties are being trampled upon, and the freedoms of a once free people are being taken away, bit by bit, and piece by piece!
And although it is Muslims who are committing heinous and vicious atrocities against humanity throughout the world, they are being labeled as peaceful and good while they are killing millions of Christians and Jews, and even many other Muslims! At the same time Christians are being labeled as intolerant, hateful, and even being put on terrorist watch lists! As the Jewish nation of Israel is helping people surrounding them, by feeding and clothing them, by performing life saving surgeries for them, they are also being labeled as hateful and evil!
What makes sense anymore? Where is the common sense? What has happened to the ability to reason and think things through logically and sensibly?!
The world is being deceived, believing the lies fed to them by those seeking to lead astray. They harden their hearts and do not seek the truth. The hardening of the heart leads to further hardening of the heart, until one day a person can no longer see the truth for the truth, or a lie for a lie. As we get closer to the Tribulation period hearts will be further hardened, the truth will become much harder to find.
Satan and his demons have altered the vision of the lost, they have smeared the dividing line between good and evil. They have mixed what is good with what is evil, and have led the lost to believe what is evil is good, and what is good is evil. This is a satanic deception, and can only be overcome by a believer in Jesus Christ!
If you are not yet a believer in Jesus Christ, then please take the time to think this through. Listen to what I have said, is it not true? Can you not see even a glimmer of truth in what I have written?!
If what I have said is the truth, and it is, then you only have one chance, one way to heaven, and that way is through Jesus Christ!
“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.“
Jesus Christ is the way to eternal life, to heaven. There is no other way, and if you believe that there is than you have been deceived!
The world is quickly falling apart. Things in this world are about to get much uglier and worse than they are right now. The times ahead will be filled with disaster, misfortune, and evil! There is only one way out, one way to know that you will be saved, Jesus Christ!
If you do not accept Jesus Christ as your Savior, then you will be cast into eternal hell! I know that seems harsh, but it is the truth! Believe it or not. I am not here to please man, but God! I must speak the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help me God!
“And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.“
“These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
When you are saved or born-again, your name is written in the Lamb’s “Book of Life”.
Jesus Christ is God, He is God in the flesh, both man and God! He came into this world to save us, to give us eternal life with Him. It is His blood that washes us clean of all of our sins. All you have to do is believe and accept Him.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.“
God loves everyone in the world, yes even those who commit murder! He wishes for no one to perish. He can and will wash you clean of every sin that you have ever committed. Even though we do not deserve it and none of us are worthy, He will save us by His grace!
Everything that I spoke of happening in and to the world today are signs, signs of the times! We are living in perilous times.
2 Timothy 3:1-5
“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!”
These are the times that we are living in, the last days as spoken of by the apostle Paul in his letter to Timothy. These are the ways of man in our society overall. The thing is that they will get worse!
There is a time soon coming called the “Tribulation Period”. This will begin once the Antichrist has been revealed, but then God will send those who did not believe in Him a strong delusion.
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.“
If you wait until this time, then it may be almost impossible for you to accept Christ!
The point is that there is only one way to heaven, and we only have so much time to make a decision. No one knows how much time he or she has, this could be your last day on earth, you just don’t know! Once we die, our eternal fate is set, forever! No turning back, no changing our minds.
Don’t put off til tomorrow what you should do today! There may not be another tomorrow left!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
