“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
The world is being inundated by natural disasters of biblical proportions, disaster after disaster with hardly a break in-between to catch our breath. So the question is do we write this off as merely global warming? Or is there actually another reason for these storms of biblical proportions?
Increased natural disasters are a sign of the times told to us by our Lord Jesus Christ, He told us that these things would happen just before the rapture of the church and His second coming. Even the United Nations admits that there has been a very drastic increase in the damage caused from these natural disasters over the past twenty years.
And if that’s not enough to open your eyes to biblical prophecies told to us thousands of years ago then we must also take into account other prophecies which are also coming to pass. We cannot merely take each event as an isolated incident, but look at the whole picture while keeping in mind what the bible tells us what will happen in the end times, what the world will look like and be like just before the return of Jesus Christ to earth!
Things in this world are not just happening, they are happening in record numbers, in biblical proportions! This alone should be enough to make anyone open their eyes and wonder just what on earth is going on?!
These events not only include increased storms and natural disasters, but also pestilence, drought, fires, solar events, signs in the heavens, unusual signs on earth, civil unrest, division between people and people groups, disharmony, chaos and confusion, deceptions, apostasy, ungodliness, unrighteousness, immoral behaviors, decline in morals and righteous living, tolerance of what God deems as unholy, unrighteous, and abominations. These are just some of the signs that we are living in the end times my friends, only some of the signs, there are many more!
If we are honest with ourselves then we can see that there is something very, very unusual happening in the world, that things are not the same as they used to be, and that there is something very significant going on! It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see this, nor does it take a brain surgeon to know that something strange is happening and something is about to give!
If you are not a Christian and you see these things then it should really make you want to know more about what is happening and what is about to happen next! It should make you question your reality and the reality of life in general, about your own existence, about who you are and why are you here, about where you are headed! But the sad truth is that most people are deceived, deceived into believing lies and following the doctrines of demons. They believe false truths, they believe in man-made theories, man-made gods, they worship idols and without even knowing it they worship at the feet of Satan!
2 Corinthians 4:3-4
“But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.“
Wait one minute some of you will say! How audacious of you to say that just because a person is not a believer in Jesus Christ that they automatically worship Satan! Who gave you the authority to make such claims?! It is not by my own authority that I say these things, but by the authority given to me by my Father in heaven, by my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! That’s who! I am not the one who said it or made such a claim, God did!
The bible tells us that Satan is the ruler of this world, the god of this world, and those who are of this world worship the god of this world, Satan! It is written.
“Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me. 43 Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. 44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.“
You may not sit in a Satanic temple, but if you are not born again through the blood of Jesus Christ then you do follow the ruler of this world, Satan! That’s right, you are under the power of the evil one whether you believe it or not, whether you deny it or not, this is the deception, a great deception! Even believers in Jesus Christ can be led astray, can be led to believe lies, and can be deceived into believing doctrines of demons. This is why it is so vitally important for us to heed the word of God, to know the truth of God’s word and write it upon our hearts so that we are not deceived!
My friends, we must know the truth, we must be aware of what the good Lord has warned us about beforehand. He told us before it happens so that when it happens we would believe, so that we would know the truth and not be deceived, so that we would be ready for His return! Signs of biblical proportions, deceptions being at the top of that list.
So when we see all of the other signs happening then we also know that there are great deceptions in the world, that there are many, many lies and doctrines of demons circulating among us and around us. Jesus warned us over and over again as did his apostles.
Jesus also told us that when we see all of these things coming to pass look up for your redemption draws near!
Look up my friends! The return of our Lord and Savior for His bride is at hand, even at the door!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
