Distracted by the World: Busy, Busy, Busy, Then It is Too Late

LIFE'S DISTRACTIONS: The devil's amusing game plan for perdition.
LIFE’S DISTRACTIONS: The devil’s amusing game plan for perdition.

“…know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”
–James 4:4

Many who live in these end times are not so much focused on evil as they are distracted by the world.

Busy, busy, busy.

The world (and Satan) have an interest in keeping modern man busy and distracted.

Until it is too late.

Busy, busy, busy.

And the distractions of the modern world are many and entertaining.  Just a few of them are

  • Sports
  • card games
  • computer games
  • video games
  • email
  • music
  • TV
  • movies
  • DVDs
  • food
  • drink
  • clubs
  • “going out”
  • work
  • computers
  • family
  • friends
  • relationships
  • literature
  • poetry
  • travel
  • making money
  • other “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

It is easier for those with wealth to indulge in whatever worldly distractions which they desire: money is no object. This is one of the reasons it is so hard for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven.

“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.”
–Matthew 19:23-24

HOWEVER, it is not a requirement to be rich or wealthy in order to be distracted by the world.

Even for the believer, the world never stops trying to pull back those who have escaped its grasp.

“And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.”
–Mark 4:19

IF end times man is busy with the many distractions of the world, he cannot be engaged in furthering his relationship with God Almighty.

IF end times man is busy with “living his life,” he cannot be sharing the gospel.

IF end times man is kept distracted, he likely will not notice that he is surrounded by end times deception.

Beware of the many distractions which pull man away from God Almighty and Jesus Christ.

The world and Satan have an interest in keeping man busy, busy, busy with the cares and concerns of life on earth.  It prevents them from dedicating as much time to the things of God.

Busy, busy, busy…

…and then it is too late.

IS the reader absorbed in the things of this world?

IS the reader constantly busy with the things of this world?

DOES the reader have an excuse ready for WHY this is necessary?

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

DOES the reader believe he is 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
