“Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”
No doubt the reader has NOT avoided reading all of the media chatter about the recent winter storm in Texas.
This storm has disrupted electric power to many homes and iced the normally clear roadways of the Lone Star State.
AND YET, the media is FULL of stories about how much DANGER the Texans are in because of this snow storm. Other popular media tales include the OUTRAGE of Texans having to deal with winter inconveniences to which millions of other Americans seem to adapt.
It IS winter, after all.
However, this all served to jog the memory, when YEARS AGO (while working in Texas during the winter months), it got down into the mid-40s and it appeared EVERYONE was then sporting an Arctic parka and shivering loudly while moving briskly about in public.
So, apparently, Texans are LESS prepared to battle unexpected cold weather in 2021 than in 1998: 23 years ago, many Texans owned Arctic parkas.
This hubbub sparked a few other thoughts as well.
Such as: IF some cold weather, snow, ice and temporary power outages causes this much confusion and chaos in a state which famously prides itself (pride is a sin) on being able to handle whatever comes its way, what will happen when REAL chaos and confusion during the last days happens, both in Texas and elsewhere?
What happens, IF–instead of a winter storm and some power outages–a war would take place and the USA would be on the receiving end of bombing?
What would happen IF–instead of a winter storm and some quickly-restored power–there were NO electric grid–and NO municipal water and NO municipal upkeep of roads?
What would happen IF–instead of some snow and ice–there were foreign soldiers patrolling the streets of America and shooting any who even LOOKED like they might protest?
And lastly, what would happen WHEN–what God’s Word declares will come to pass–takes place (instead of some seasonal weather)?
“And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth. And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image. And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea. And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood. And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus. For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy. And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.
“And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory. And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds. And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.”
So, according to God’s Word–which is the ONLY source of truth in today’s world–not only CHAOS, but MASS CHAOS, will take place during the end times.
A few observations might be in order.
1- There is NO amount of PHYSICAL preparation which will enable one to survive what is coming.
2- There IS still time to prepare SPIRITUALLY so these judgments will not fall on one’s head.
3- Do not wait until judgment begins falling and mass CHAOS is the order of the day. Throw yourself on the great mercy and grace of God to protect and preserve.
OR, the reader will have to deal with MUCH worse than is happening in Texas.
DOES the reader believe that things will one days soon “return to normal” as has been promised?
IS the reader mentally looking over his shoulder?
It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“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.”
