End Times Focus: The Things of Man or the Things of the God?

Things of the world OR the things of God?

“Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.”
–1Corinthians 2:12

In the times in which we now live, what is one to focus on: the things of the world or the things of God?

This choice is very similar to another important end times quandry: Who should one fear: God or man?

The world–and all of the world’s authorities–will naturally try to keep end times man focused on the world and the things of the world.

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
–1John 2:15-16

This is one reason for the media/entertainment fascination with all things prepping/survivalism.

The world wants end times man to believe that he can prepare physically for what is soon to come upon the earth.

End times man cannot prepare physically.

Someone asked recently “Then what can someone do?”

It is odd that the answer to that question involves an action which most–through constant indoctrination–believe is a fantasy: changing one’s direction in life and calling out to the LORD for mercy.

One must place his entire trust for the future in God Almighty and His Son, Jesus Christ.

Instead of the world.

One must turn his back on popular propaganda and depend upon the Creator.

IF one is sincere–and God WILL know whether the reader is sincere–he will notice the fruit of such a change almost immediately.

One of the first results will be the complete change–as if there is no personal effort required–within.

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
–2Corinthians 5:17

“Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.”
–Ezekiel 36:25-27

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
–Romans 12:2

“Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him”
–Colossians 3:9-10

“That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.”
–Ephesians 4:22-24

As a result of this complete transformation, the believer becomes a totally new man, with a new understanding and a new Spirit.

No longer will a new believer trust the things of this world.

Through this transformation, the true value of the things of this world–as opposed to the things of God–will be known and completely understood.

This transformation is the best sign one can have that he is no longer a citizen of the world, but is now a citizen of the kingdom of heaven.

To be honest, this transformation may take some getting used to. But, the benefits are incredible–and completely known by the new believer.

Gospel of Jesus Christ: The End Times Power of God Unleashed

IS the reader still trusting to the things of this world for his future?

IS the reader still putting his faith in these things even though he has had the nagging doubt: these things  can not last?

There is still time to repent, call on God and enter the kingdom of heaven.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?

THE GOSPEL

“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.”
-–Romans 1:16
