Commentary By: Gordon King
Many of you living in the world today may be wondering just what on earth is going on?! All of the increased violence, evil, earthquakes and storms of biblical proportions seem to be never-ending.
Well my friends I will tell you exactly what is going on, all of this was prophesied to happen in the bible. These are the signs of the end times, the last days before the return of Jesus Christ to earth!
The bible tells us that there will be increased evil and violence in the world, that the hearts of men will grow harder and dark, that they will be lovers of themselves, proud, arrogant, despisers of good, unloving and unholy, that lawlessness will abound and the love of many shall grow cold! It also says that there will be many earthquakes in various places, famines, and pestilence, that many shall go out into the world and deceive. It says that these times shall be perilous, that they will only get worse until the return of Jesus Christ to the world.
We were all born into sin, each and every one of us, we have within us a sin nature. And since we have a sin nature we are in direct opposition to God, the one who created us all. But our sin nature is not the only thing fighting against us, there are actually fallen angels who seek our destruction. I am sure that most of you have heard of Satan or Lucifer, he is the leader of these fallen angels, and theirs is to steal, kill, and destroy us! They hate everything that God has created, especially humans, and they want to see all of us end up in Hell with them!
In order for any of us to get to heaven we must be reconciled back to God, our sin must be washed clean, for sin cannot enter heaven. God is perfect in all of His ways, He is righteous and holy, and the opposite cannot make it into heaven.
There is one way and only one way to reconcile ourselves back to God, one way which will make us righteous and holy, not by our works, not by being good, not even by reading the bible or going to church! No, the only way to get to heaven is by believing in the Son of God, Jesus Christ! God is composed of a Trinity, the Father in heaven, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. This is difficult for our minute human minds to really comprehend, but all three of these entities are God, they are all separate and distinct, yet they are all one, three in one and one in three.
You must repent of your sins, this means to have a change of heart regarding your sins, that you want to change, but you don’t have to change before being saved. Then you must believe that Jesus Christ is God, that He died on the cross and was buried in a tomb, that He arose after three days and ascended into heaven. You must ask Him to forgive you and then you accept Him as your Lord and Savior. If you do these things then you will be saved!
Jesus Christ is the only way, not any other religion or faith, not any other beliefs will save you, only by the blood of Jesus on the cross!
The times we are now living in are treacherous, they are dark and gloomy, yet there is hope, there is a way out. He is the one who gives us peace and comfort, who stands beside us when we are down, the one who washes us clean from all of our sins! Don’t wait until things become unbearable, seek the Lord now! Let God be your guide, let Him be your Lord, allow Him into your heart and know that He will always be with you!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
