Commentary By: Gordon King
People often say that the world will be a “better” place after…..“we get the climate under control”…..”we stop eating meat”…..”we all drive electric vehicles”…..”we stop using fossil fuels”…..”we all make the same wage”…..”we unite the world as one”…..”we accept that all faiths lead to heaven”…..”we submit to world leaders to save us because they know best and have our best interests at heart”…..the list goes on!
But are these things true?
Do we need to get the climate under control or does God control the climate? Do we need to stop eating meat that God has sanctioned as food fit for human consumption? Will electric vehicles actually make the world a better place when it is destroying the planet by mining for the minerals needed to build batteries, and when most of the electricity used to power them actually comes from fossil fuels in the first place? And if fossil fuels are so bad, then why did the good Lord give them to us? And why do they keep replenishing themselves? I could go on and on, but you get the point. All of the things that we are told will save us are all based upon lies and misinformation!
This world is corrupt, it is wicked and evil, ran by wicked and evil rulers (for the most part). The world cannot save us, nor does it have our best interests at heart. Our faith and trust should only be in Jesus Christ, and He is the only One that can save us!
I also hear many Christians say that God is going to restore society to what it was before the pandemic (plandemic), and I hear many of them saying that there is going to be a great revival in the world soon. Really? I just don’t see it, nor do I see the bible saying it. Perhaps there will be a great revival before the Tribulation period, but I don’t see it written anywhere in scripture, in fact I see just the opposite, a great falling away!
Many may call me a doomsayer, well, if that’s what they want to call me then so be it. I prefer to be called that and believe what God and the bible says, then to be called a person with a positive outlook by the world.
The bible clearly says that in the last days there will be a falling away, not a revival.
2 Thessalonians 2:3
“ Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,”
1 Timothy 4:1
“Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,”
“Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. 5 Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent.”
I do however believe that there will be a revival during the Tribulation period, if you can call it that since there are no believers going into the Tribulation period; I prefer to call it an “awakening“.
‘Therefore He says:
“Awake, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light.” ‘
This is the way that I see it from scripture, the world is NOT going to get any better! In fact, it’s going to get a whole lot worse than it is already!
2 Timothy 3:1
“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:”
“And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. “
2 Peter 3:3
“knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts,”
“And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake.”
The world is going to continue to degrade, this is going to happen until Christ comes back at His second coming, at the end of the Tribulation period. Then and only then will the world become a better place!
“Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.”
“Then the kingdom and dominion,
And the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven,
Shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High.
His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
And all dominions shall serve and obey Him”
“For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth;
And the former shall not be remembered or come to mind.
18 But be glad and rejoice forever in what I create;
For behold, I create Jerusalem as a rejoicing,
And her people a joy.
19 I will rejoice in Jerusalem,
And joy in My people;
The voice of weeping shall no longer be heard in her,
Nor the voice of crying.
20 “No more shall an infant from there live but a few days,
Nor an old man who has not fulfilled his days;
For the child shall die one hundred years old,
But the sinner being one hundred years old shall be accursed.
21 They shall build houses and inhabit them;
They shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit.
22 They shall not build and another inhabit;
They shall not plant and another eat;
For as the days of a tree, so shall be the days of My people,
And My elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.
23 They shall not labor in vain,
Nor bring forth children for trouble;
For they shall be the descendants of the blessed of the Lord,
And their offspring with them.
24 “It shall come to pass
That before they call, I will answer;
And while they are still speaking, I will hear.
25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together,
The lion shall eat straw like the ox,
And dust shall be the serpent’s food.
They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain,”
Says the Lord.
God bless my friends! Maranatha! Looking up!!!
