End Times Sadness: 5 Points About the Woe of the End Times

Crying: Sad

“Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light.”
–Amos 5:18

Any who think on the end times SHOULD be saddened.

Several points from a recent discussion concerning the SADNESS OF THE TIMES IN WHICH WE NOW LIVE.

1- The end times are a time of ultimate judgment.

Which means that a great many people will be judged and found wanting–even those who do not believe that they will be judged.

Which means a great many will spend their eternities in torment–whether they believe they will or not.

Belief is only necessary for the free gift of salvation–NOT for the eternal suffering of the deceived.

2- Man’s end times woes all stem from a refusal to submit to his Creator and be saved.

End times man has been taught/indoctrinated into believing “submission” is a terrible state of affairs.

But it will be a “lack of submission” which dooms the vast majority of end times men.

Especially in a land which celebrated rebellion and “going one’s own way.”

“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.”
–1Samuel 15:23

3- End times man cannot put it all together.

End times man has all of the pieces needed to obtain salvation for himself and his family. However, because deception is so prevalent, end times man cannot put those pieces together OF WHICH HE IS ALREADY AWARE.

End times man does not suffer because he does not have the correct information.

Deception is a spiritual condition–NOT a “lack of information” problem.

Because of his willing participation in deception, end times man will pay a horrible price, eternal in nature.

4- There is a very limited number of believers to pray for the lost.

It is a tragedy that so few pray for so many.

Because there are so few believers, many will remain lost due to no one praying for their salvation. Because the gospel is so rarely heard–particularly in those buildings known as the churches–many will be lost.

Sad.

“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.”
–Matthew 7:13-14

5- Those who are lost resist with all of their might turning to the LORD.

There are many reasons for end times man’s resistance to salvation.

The wicked want to do what they want to do. Any suggestion that there may exist a better way fills them with disbelief and then, anger.

The lost chafe at any submission, including (particularly) submission to the LORD.

End times man is lost and deceived and places his own comfort above a love for the truth.

For all of these reasons, practically ALL of mankind will tumble to destruction.

Which is an extremely sad state of affairs.

“Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.”
–Isaiah 13:6

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

  1. I may have misunderstood #4. But I completely disagree with it. I don’t believe another man’s salvation rests in another man’s prayers. Our salvation begins with God’s precious Holy Spirit and carries us all the way through to completion by the power of the Holy Ghost. If not your going back to salvation resting in the works of man which will take from all the glory due to Jesus!

    1. Salvation is a gift from God, totally dependent upon His grace.

      “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
      –Ephesians 2:8-9

      “For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.”
      –Romans 9:15-16

      So, how is the lost man to KNOW he needs salvation if salvation is a gift from God? And how is the lost man to KNOW he needs salvation if he does not believe in that salvation?

      The lost can know by the LORD opening the eyes of the blind.

      Which He will do.

      HOW does He do this?

      “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.”
      –John 14:13-14

      “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.”
      –1John 5:14-15

      AND what is the will of God, that the believer may pray to be heard?

      “For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.”
      –1Timothy 2:3-4

      In addition, believers are to pray for ALL men.

      “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men”
      –1Timothy 2:1

      What are believers to ask for all men?

      Money, power, fleeting happiness?

      Believers are to ask for that which is the will of God.

      And God’s will is that men be saved.

      You are completely correct: another man’s salvation is in NO WAY in the hands of the praying believer.

      HOWEVER, the praying believer may help facilitate the salvation of the NOW spiritually-blind, hopeless lost object of his prayers.

      IF men are deceived and do not know they need salvation, then the believer can pray that God open their eyes and make them aware of their dire need.

      The believer may also pray that the unbeliever hear–and believe–the gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the “power of God unto salvation.”
