End Times CHAOS: Are You Prepared?
“Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.”
One would think, based on the great number of books, DVDs, TV shows, movies and sermons that Americans would be well prepared for the end times.
But after a depressing tour of “Christian” websites and churches, one would have to conclude that, sadly, that is not the case.
Many can see that the world is prepared to descend into chaos. Many are trying to prepare–but lacking the truth of the Word o God, they are attempting to prepare physically.
Believers are to be watching for the return of Jesus Christ.
But many in today’s churches are watching for events other than the return of Jesus Christ.
- Some are watching for the return of the Nephilim, ETs and other science fiction-themed events.
- Others are not watching for the return of Jesus Christ and are instead watching for the churches to take dominion over the earth before Jesus can return. This is as unbiblical an outlook as the Nephilim-watchers.
- Still others are watching for an end times revival before Jesus returns. The Bible says there will be a great end times revival–but it will be satanic in nature.A great end times rebellion against God and His Anointed Jesus Christ is what the Bible declares will happen.
“The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.”
For those who inhabit the apostate churches, this great rebellion (“falling away”) will look like a great revival.
“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;”
The apostate churches will fill and people will worship the same deities these churches now worship: the dragon [Satan].
“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast…And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
Of course this end times rebellion will look like a revival to those who do not know God’s Word. Many counterfeit Christians will then drop their pretenses, exalting at last in their open worship of the dragon.
- Some are watching for the rebuilding of a Jewish temple, even though the Bible clearly states that God no longer dwells in temples made by the hands of man.
“Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet,”
- Some are watching for a secret return of Jesus to whisk church-goers away to heaven where they will be safe from having to witness for Jesus Christ. Those overcomers who stand up for Jesus using the blood of the Lamb, the word of their testimony and loving not their lives unto death are referred to as “losers” who are “Left Behind.
““But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.”
There’s a number of other events which men watch for instead of Jesus Christ: signs and lying wonders, seven-year peace treaties about which the Bible is silent and other cunningly devised end times fables.
The believer is watching for the return of Jesus Christ because believers know the season, though not the day or the hour.
“But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.”
“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.”
“Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near: So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors.”
Believers are watching for the return of Jesus Christ. There are a number of events which will take place, but they are events clearly set forth in God’s Word.
Those in the apostate churches are watching for a number of events which are not in God’s Word, but which are taught by men.
Perhaps that is why the overwhelming majority of mankind will be so surprised by the return of Jesus Christ.
“And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.”
The world will soon descend into chaos.
Is the reader watching for Jesus Christ?
Or is he referring to a chart or timeline prepared by men?
“But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”
“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.”
“Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him.”
