I just came across something on FB that I thought I would share with you dear people. But before you watch the youtube and read about it, have you really stopped to thing about it. What is the ‘it’ I am talking about. The ‘it’ that I am talking about is the return of the Lord.
A lot about the return of Jesus is talked about in the bible, and a lot of what must happen before the return is outlined in the book of Daniel and in Matthew and various other places. Again, have you actually taken a step back from this and really thought about ‘it’. The scroll that was to be sealed until the end times was a bitter sweet scroll. Think about THAT for a moment. Bitter – sweet; that is EXACTLY how it is going to be… bitter-sweet.
We ALL look forward to be taken from this world and into the arms of a truly wondrous God. That sounds so sweet. But on the other hand, there will be perilous times ahead. The Third Temple will be built after Israel accepts a peace treaty with Satan himself. Have you actually, really thought about that? Zechariah explains that two thirds of Israel will perish because of the war that Satan unleashes up0n Israel. Have you actually, really thought about that! I have heard some say that these end days will make the holocaust look like a walk in the park on a sunny day! Have you really thought about that? This is very bitter to the stomach. And so it should be.
The reason I am writing this is because have seen so many Christians get so wrapped up in that glorious day, our blessed hope, and it seems to me that they are forgetting the bitterness that is about to come upon the world. That is how they are coming across to me, and I just wonder how they are coming across to the unsaved. I have unsaved family members and loved ones. This makes me weep. Yet, I know that I am an alien, a stranger in this world. This world is full of evil and I hate it and because of this I DO want to go to my heavenly home and I DO rejoice knowing that is my final destination. But seeing and reading some of the comments on the video that you are about to watch causes me to really think about ‘it’. Reading some of the comments of FB causes me to really think about ‘it’. The bitter-sweet.
We know He tarries, and I am thankful that He does, even if that means that I have to sit in this fallen world and watch all the horrors and cruelness that happens within it. Yes, God’s creation is awesome and it is truly beautiful. Yet it is tainted with sin and mankind is depraved without the Lord. This world is bitter-sweet.
The day of the Lord is describes as Great and Terrible. Have we actually really thought about ‘it’. I am not going to address the whole pre-trib, pre-wrath, mid-trib and post-trib here at all. This is NOT what this post is about. What it is about however, as we get closer to His glorious coming, the world is going to be a place with ever increasing evil, there will be more and more apostasy, there will be more wars, famines and the earth will be in physical turmoil. This will increase. So much so that the people of the earth will be ready and even crying out for a solution to all their woes. We know that there will be a solution offered to the world, and to Israel. And that solution will bring about such horrors that the world has never seen before or will ever again see. This should make us weep. This should make us fall on our knees and pray. This should make us pray for our families and loved ones who don’t know the Lord. Pray without ceasing. Lament for the coming days.
If you know bible prophecy then you know that in the last days one man will arise who will broker a peace between israel and her enemies. Part of the deal will include the building of the 3rd. temple in jerusalem. see the book of daniel, II Thes. 2 and this video that was sent to me. and read again matthew 24 slowly. Be sure to read some of the comments following this video, and I ask you if you see the same thing as I am seeing. I also ask you, have really thought about ‘IT’?
