Waiting Until Faith is No Longer Possible

time

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
–Hebrews 11:1

“For we are saved by hope [faith]: but hope [faith] that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?”
–Romans 8:24

There is no better illustration of one of the end times’ greatest dangers than Romans 8:24 and Hebrew 11:1.

God’s Word informs the reader that 1) we are saved by FAITH, while Romans 8:24 warns the reader that it is NO FAITH to see that which is hoped for.

IN FACT, Romans 8:24 declares that what can seen requires NO FAITH to believe–BECAUSE it can be seen.

THIS is a particular snare for the MILLIONS who have adopted the attitude, “I’ll wait until I see some of that Bible stuff take place, THEN when it begins happening, I’ll throw down for Jesus so fast it will surprise folks!”

This line of reasoning FAILS as a method to achieve salvation in the last days–or ANY time.

IF the reader can see Jesus Christ returning to earth in the midst of the atmosphere, preparing to obliterate his foes at the battle at Armageddon, THEN the reader needs NO FAITH that Jesus Christ will return to earth and wipe out His enemies at the battle of Armageddon.

“For we are saved by hope [faith]: but hope [faith] that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?”
–Romans 8:24

Alas! It is too late for that person.

IF the reader can see the great end times calamities happening around him– which the Bible foretold–

THEN the reader needs NO FAITH that those calamities will strike the earth and those living upon it.

“For we are saved by hope [faith]: but hope [faith] that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?”
–Romans 8:24

Alas! It is too late for those who had a “wait and see” attitude about such events.

IF the reader can see the man of sin (false prophet; false Messiah) controlling the peoples of the earth and moving from one scheme to another–while deceiving end times mankind through the use of satanic and demonic power (“miracles”), THEN the reader needs NO FAITH to believe what was written thousands of years ago concerning the man of sin.

“And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast”
–Revelation 13:13-14

Oh no!  That person waited TOO LONG to exhibit the FAITH needed to be granted eternal salvation.

And so, the WARNING for the end times is the same as Jesus warned almost 2000 years ago.

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

Jesus was NOT saying, “Watch–so that the faithless may confirm what is written in God’s Word through their eyes.”

Jesus was saying, “Watch–so those who had FAITH all of those long years will have that faith confirmed through events which can be seen with their eyes!”

DO NOT WAIT TOO LONG.

Do not wait until faith is no longer possible–because the events foretold are taking place.

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
–Hebrews 11:1

“For we are saved by hope [faith]: but hope [faith] that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?”
–Romans 8:24
HAS the reader felt that he should “wait and see” what happens before making any big life decisions?

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
