Commentary By: Gordon King
The world as we now know it will never be the same! More Islamic terror as ISIS claims responsibility for a deadly attack in London, and police killing a man yielding a machete in Washington state. What in the world is going on?!
The world is in turmoil and the wickedness and evil are on the rise! Some people just don’t seem to be in their right mind, and the forces of evil are prevailing in the hearts of many!
What we are now witnessing in the world is merely a precursor of things to come, things which will only intensify in insanity, intensity, and frequency! Once the Tribulation period begins all hell will literally break loose!
So why is it then that we see so much evil and insane behavior now in the world? It’s because we are nearing the beginning of the Tribulation period! As in labor pains, the evil will become much more evil and sinister as we approach this time in history.
So what does this mean for the church? It means that the rapture of the church is very near, even at the doors, and Jesus Christ could return for the church at any moment!
The church is the body of Christ, yet, once the church is removed from the world there will be no more church found on earth. Yet, there will still be people saved, yet they are not part of the church! How many Christians have ever thought about this? Not many I suspect, as I have never heard this taught before. The souls saved after the rapture of the church are not part of the church, only those saved during the church age, which is now, for a short while longer.
We are to be looking up for our blessed hope, for the return of Jesus Christ for His bride! We do not know the day nor the hour of His return for us. However, if we believe that the rapture will happen after the Tribulation period begins, then we could possibly know the day, as we have prophesied events occurring at specific times in future history. We would have a much better understanding of just when Christ is returning by plotting out a time line of future events, however, this is not in teaching with scripture, as Christ could return at any time!
Those saved after the beginning of the Tribulation period will have to endure very harsh and evil times! They will suffer at the hands of the Antichrist, they will suffer times of never before seen evil on this planet!
If we are now saved, then we should thank the good Lord for His mercy and grace upon us! We should give Him thanks for saving us now!
I am telling you, things in this world are about to become very dark, and by that I mean very evil and wicked, much more so than they already are!
Wicked and satanic beings are hard at work, attempting to destroy what God has created, they are coming against God’s precious children, and they are relentless in their demonic activity. Therefore, we as children of the Most High God of the universe must remain faithful and true, we must be steadfast and stand firm in our faith and beliefs. Seek God and the things of heaven above, do not be alarmed when people of the world come against you, do not be shaken when you see evil come to pass, for it is written that it will happen!
If the world hated Christ, then why would it not hate us also? Take heart in knowing that we are on the right side, that we have God within us, and that God and His mighty angels are at our side! They go before us and light our path, they stand upon the hills above us and protect us from evil doers.
Comfort yourselves with the word of God, take heed to what the good Lord tells us is the truth, and be encouraged that Jesus Christ is coming very soon for His bride!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
