If only it were funny but it’s not, but rather concerns the eternal abode of your soul.
With all of the Earthquakes, hurricanes, famines, wars and rumours of wars, many unfamiliar with the biblical text appear to believe that it is the end of the world. However, although these certainly are ‘signs’ that we are rapidly approching the end it is not yet...
And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
Because before the ends comes we must first see...
• A Ten region New World Order - [Dan 2:41]
• Which for a season shall yield to ‘The Whore’ - [Rev 17:3]
• At some point after, these Ten King’s shall cast her off. - [Rev 17:16]
• In the aftermath, Antichrist shall appear and unite three of the kingdoms under him to form his own ‘super-kingdom’. - [Dan 7:8] - [Rev 16:10]
• To whom the remaining seven shall bow for a season - [Rev 13:4]
• Very close to the end this union will begin to fall apart - [Dan 11:44]
• In the days of these eight kings shall Christ appear. - [Dan 2:44]
And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.
And in the days of those ‘eight’ Kings [Antichrist’s Kingdom made-up of three of the original ten plus the remaining seven equals ‘eight’] shall Antichrist seek to destroy Israel in an attempt to break prophecy. Because if he could destroy Israel before they recognised Jesus as their King whom they rejected... Antichrist might have continued but he shall not, but rather, shall by making the attempt bring about the very conditions that shall trigger Christ’s return. ie... that in their destress [The Great Tribulation] a Jewish remnant shall be driven to finally accept that they not only rejected their King, but crucified Him even though the very day of His revealing as King had been foretold them [Dan 9:26] [Lk 19:42-44].
Yet in Jacob’s time of trouble [Jer 30:7] they shall repent, call on His name and He shall answer them!
I [Jesus] will go and return to my place [3rd Heaven], till they [The Jews] acknowledge their offence [of rejecting and crucifying their King Jesus] and seek my face: in their affliction [The Great Tribulation] they will seek me early.
As many, I ‘lean’ towards believing we have entered the Time of Sorrows, yet the end is not yet.
6 - And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 - For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 - All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Yet the stress of ‘The Time of Sorrows’ is not to be compared to what shall follow them...
Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
Saying nothing of the wrath of God that shall also appear...
12 - And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
13 - And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
14 - And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
15 - And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
16 - And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
17 - For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
So don’t be a fool and say within your heart “Oh, we still have time I’ll seek Him at my convenience” [Prov 22:3]. But rather seek Him now while He maybe found! For indeed the time is short and for many... death shall cut the time shorter still.
6 - Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
7 - Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
8 - For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.
9 - For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
