Commentary By: Gordon King
Bible prophecies are coming to pass right before our very eyes! Terror attacks continue throughout the world, evil is on the rise in every society on earth, tensions in the Middle East continue, and the hatred of God’s chosen people the Jews are continually increasing. Antisemitism is on the march and the rise, nations of the world are increasingly attacking the Jews, Israel, and God Almighty!
What was prophesied to happen in the world thousands of years ago is happening now. The evil in the world is not slowing down, the doctrines of demons is widespread, and the worship of all things unholy is spreading like wildfire! Deception is at an all time high, and the church is being divided by what is holy and righteous and what is unholy and unrighteous, by the ways of the world.
Personally I do not need anymore prophecies being fulfilled to know that we are living in the end times! It is very obvious to me that we are in the end times and that we are not far off from both the rapture of the church and the beginning of the Tribulation period!
Everything spoken of to us in scripture about the end times, about the closeness of Christ’s return, is very apparent and overwhelming at times. Evil and wickedness is becoming more visible and more intense, by the same token, everything righteous and holy is also becoming more visible and more intense!
There is a division between the two, a chasm which is widening and growing deeper. It is spiritual warfare, increasing in both frequency and intensity. A battle of the minds and hearts of those living in the world. It will continue to intensify until the second coming of Christ!
We can see with our eyes the division of people in the streets, we can see the further division of the church, and we can see the effects of evil spirits throughout the world. And while the evil is intensifying, the Spirit of God is also moving throughout the world, calling all believers to stand firm in their faith, to listen to His voice, and to be obedient to His word!
This division is a separation, a separation between what is good and what is evil. A separation among the tares and the wheat in preparation of what is soon coming! As the evil is exposed so is the good, as the wicked perform evil acts in rebellion, believers in Jesus Christ are performing righteous acts of obedience in the name of God, with prayers and supplications in the name of Jesus.
We are not to fear what is coming upon the world, but to have faith that God will do as He says that He will. He has not given us a spirit of fear but of power, love, and a sound mind. Ours is to trust in God, in His ways, and in His words.
We see all of this evil taking place in the world today because God told us that we would! It is prophesied to happen and it will. We are told that when it happens then we are very close to the rapture of the church and the beginning of the Tribulation period. And when the church is taken out of this world then those who remain will suffer greatly! It will be a time like no other in history. The light will be taken out, and the only thing left will be darkness. You think things are bad now just wait until that time! But God is still in control, and there will be those who turn to God, and those He redeems from the house of Israel, the 144,000 sealed Jews, 12,000 from each tribe. However, there will be great tribulation during that time, and those of God will be hunted down and persecuted by the Antichrist!
We must pray for the lost, for them to see the light, for them to have a softened heart, for them to come to salvation in Jesus Christ! Everything in the world will be much worse during the Tribulation period, there will be much more deception and lies, much more hatred, and much more spiritual blindness!
Do not be deceived by the things of this world, do not be led astray by the darkness, for even believers in Jesus Christ can be led astray, like lost sheep. Ours is not of this world but of another world, of a spiritual world, a heavenly world. And we must take our direction and guidance from the Spirit of God Almighty!
These are biblical times my friends, times like no other! And as such we must listen to the voice of God. The world will try to deceive us, to turn us from our faith, to pull us away from God, but we must stand firm and steadfast, relying not on what the world tells us is the truth but what God does!
No one knows when Christ will come for His bride, however we can know the season and it is now! The rapture of the church is imminent, our Savior is coming for us soon! When we will be united with Christ, when we will be made like Him because we will see Him as He is. The Tribulation period is close at hand, this also means that the second coming of Christ is also close at hand! The second coming of Christ and the one thousand-year reign of Christ on earth! From the city of Jerusalem!
Do not lose hope or faith, we are told in scripture to remain faithful and true to His word, to persevere, to seek the Lord in all things. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us, and all things will work together for the good of those who love Him, to those who are called according to His purpose.
One day soon we as saints will be coming back with the Lord our God, riding on white horses, not to join the world, but to put an end to the rule and reign of Satan here on earth, by the power of Jesus Christ, the King of kings and the Lord of lords!
“Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.
106 I have sworn and confirmed
That I will keep Your righteous judgments.
107 I am afflicted very much;
Revive me, O Lord, according to Your word.
108 Accept, I pray, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O Lord,
And teach me Your judgments.
109 My life is continually in my hand,
Yet I do not forget Your law.
110 The wicked have laid a snare for me,
Yet I have not strayed from Your precepts.
111 Your testimonies I have taken as a heritage forever,
For they are the rejoicing of my heart.
112 I have inclined my heart to perform Your statutes
Forever, to the very end.“
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
