For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace,”
—1 Corinthians 14:33
To the many whose highest desire is to be left alone and “just live my life,” the end times must be a very, very disturbing time.
Because the end times are not a time of peace and quiet.
“And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.”
The end times are a time of separation: of separating the few who love Jesus and the many who have placed other things (idols) ahead of Him.
“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
Chaos, terror, panic, fear: the end times will be hard on the unprepared. It matters little if the unprepared ‘bury their heads in the sand‘: events will overtake them whether they run away OR whether they stand still in denial.
But, with all of the many warnings contained in the Bible, the only reason for being unprepared is unbelief.
“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
The end times are NOT an easy time for all those whose highest desire is to live a quiet life and concentrate on the things of this world.
And we’re just getting started. There will be MORE chaos, terror, panic and fear in the months ahead.
Many events of the end times are manufactured by evil men for their own evil purposes. While evil men do not believe God, God has ALWAYS used evil men to fulfill what’s been prophesied in His Word. So, in a sense, the wicked (who do not believe God) are working for Him.
Though God uses evil men to accomplish His purposes, believers are promised that God will use ALL THINGS, both good and evil, to fulfill His many promises to those who love God.
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
Be assured: the end times are NOT a time of peace and quiet.
Whenever chaos strikes, does the reader have an uneasy sense of foreboding or a feeling of peace?
“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
IF the reader is trying to live his life and is concerned for the things of this world, he is bound for disappointment.
Things do not “get better.”
No, they only get worse.
Trying to prepare physically is a fool’s errand.
Only those prepared in the gospel of Jesus Christ will find their way.
“And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;”
Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
