Stuck in the Middle of the End Times With No One But Satan

stuck in the middle

“Yeah, I don’t know why I came here tonight
I got the feeling that something ain’t right”
Stuck in the Middle with You, Steeler’s Wheel

The world is changing EVERY day.

Even those who pay little attention to such things have begun to notice that something “ain’t right“–though they may not have a clue as to what that “something” IS.

Even those who cannot tell Jesus from a carburetor get the feeling that we’re living in the end times.

And not JUST the end times (which began when Jesus Christ left the earth)!

But, the LAST DAYS of the end times!

The last days are a time FILLED with peril and hardship.

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.”
–2TIMOTHY 3:1

Even the mockers and scoffers can feel that “something ain’t right.”

“Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.”
–2PETER 3:3-4

The last days are such that even the most hard-bitten of the world’s worldly men find the odd moment to assess their life and their life’s work.

Though they may NEVER admit it.

It is at such times–when the world, in which so many have placed their trust and faith, seems to be coming apart–that even the most pragmatic of men begin to take a look around them and consider things OUTSIDE of their normal focus–which is usually almost totally about themselves.

When making (what they believe to be) a clear-eyed assessment of the times, such men reason, “I’m just going to have to make the best of it all.”

They will probably notice that those who follow Jesus Christ seem to be on the way out the door.

“And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High”
–Daniel 7:25

“And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.”
–Revelation 13:7

They will also probably notice that the end times seem to be Satan’s ‘time to shine.’

“Who, in their right mind, Kevin, could possibly deny the 20th century was entirely mine? All of it, Kevin! All of it. Mine. I’m peaking, Kevin. It’s my time now. It’s our time.”
–John Milton (Satan), The Devil’s Advocate

And so, ALMOST ALL MEN (the Bible declares “…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.” [Rev 13:8]) will throw in with Satan to try and weather the storms of God’s end times wrath.

NOT a good decision AT ALL.

Sort of like those who fall for the bitcoin scam and end up losing their money.

So, almost ALL men who dwell upon the earth during the last days shall be stuck in the middle with Satan as the realizer of their hopes and dreams.

How does that work out for them?

“And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse [Jesus], and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.”
–Revelation 19:19-21

And Satan himself?

“And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.”
–Revelation 20:1-3

The moral of this account?

Don’t place your faith and hopes in Satan–NO MATTER how sure a thing he looks to be.

HAS the reader ever wondered about the state of the world and its seeming decline?

HAS the reader made any plans if the world continues its spiral down?

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.

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
