Possible Future Dangers Vs. Very Real Cash-in-Hand RIGHT NOW

warning

“And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.”
–Mark 13:37

One of the LAST actions Jesus Christ took while on earth the first time he was here was to WARN ALL to ‘Watch.’

This is true of the end times: a time which is marked by deception which everywhere surrounds men and leads them astray.

HOWEVER, because it IS the end times, man will not pay heed to warnings (or to God’s Word), INSTEAD choosing to believe the words of other men who are intent on deceiving him.

This is PARTICULARLY true of a time when it seems men have nothing else to talk about OTHER THAN the government’s FREE MONEY ‘stimulus checks.’

Stimulus checks could be coming ‘as early as this weekend’ after Biden signs COVID relief package into law

It does NOT matter that those FREE DOLLARS are not worth as much as they were months ago; it does NOT matter that most will have spent their loot BEFORE they get their hands on it; it does NOT matter that man now lives in constant deception.

Your Third Stimulus Check: How Much? When?

WHAT does matter is that–though they (likely through no fault of their own) likely have NO job–the recipients of the checks do have a wad of little green slips of paper they may trade for something shiny.

Because it IS the last days, man will NOT listen to God’s Word–INSTEAD choosing to listen to well-groomed talking heads which flicker on their TV screens and the smooth, soothing voices which pour forth from their radios (to say nothing of the voices in their heads).

For most, science, medicine, education, culture, media, government, others: all have been had their authority inflated and elevated ABOVE that of God’s Word.  Someone arriving in 2021 America from 100 years ago might find it EXTREMELY hard to believe that actors, scientists and medicine show operators receive such trust and reverence while the warnings in God’s Word go unheeded.

The believer is commanded to preach the gospel and warn others of the coming dangers.

But WHO can concentrate on possible future dangers when they have handfuls of FREE MONEY to spend?

Possible dangers which lie in the future–either nearby or further away–seem so unreal when there are VERY REAL, VERY IMMEDIATE decisions to be made about buying a bigger television OR a NEW X-box OR some snazzy new duds.

“Who knows?  I think I might buy me a HAT–and some sunglasses!”

Few want to dwell upon warnings when there are HAPPIER things on which to focus one’s mind.

MEANWHILE, the believer CANNOT grow frustrated or upset: after all, NOT LONG AGO, he was where those poor deluded souls are today.  If not for God’s GREAT MERCY and GRACE, he would be there still.

One other good reason the believer should not grow frustrated at the lack of attention paid to the dire warnings contained in the Bible: God’s Word informs him that man will NOT listen and will follow along after Satan instead.

“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? 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.”
–Revelation 13:4,8

So, EVEN AS the believer is lamenting that perhaps the national anthem should be changed to “Dare to be Stupid,” he understands ALL TOO WELL that not so very long ago, he was in that very same unbelieving boat.

Actually, there’s not much for believers to do differently.

The Bible declares that THESE ARE THE TIMES when men will gravitate to Satan and the things of the world.

The Bible also declares that these are the times when men will–instead of GRATITUDE–react to attempts to warn them of their peril with mocking and scoffing.

And, the believer knows that, though the gospel of Jesus Christ IS the ‘power of God unto salvation,’ only a FEW will respond positively to it.

“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

And so, as the world keeps chugging along down the merry, broad way to destruction, the believer can do little…

…OTHER THAN WHAT HE IS COMMANDED TO DO.

And most days, that does not compare very favorably with FREE MONEY.

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.”
-–Romans 1:16
