IF one believes the Word of God, it is difficult to be shocked or surprised by the wickedness of wicked men.
And ALL men–unless they are written in the Lamb’s book of life–are wicked.
“And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”–Revelation 20:15
Recently, a story was related of a man who did NOT believe that God’s judgment would fall AS GOD’S WORD DECLARES IT MUST during the end times.
“You mean to tell me that after all the things I’ve done for God, he gonna turn around and make me go through all of THAT?!?!?”
This story MIGHT be shocking–IF one did NOT believe the Word of God.
1- God’s Word informs us that man–who (after the fall of Adam) has ALWAYS been little more than a mess of evil, wickedness and foolishness–will get WORSE in the last days.
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”–2TIMOTHY 3:1-5
(That this passage is SPECIFICALLY concerned with the end times tares who populate Satan’s churches is validated by verse 5: “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”)
2- Man adores the creation (including himself) MORE than he exalts the Creator.
“Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature [creation] more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”–Romans 1:25
3- Even some of those WHO AT ONE TIME had showed faith in God and His Word will leave that faith during the end times.
“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils”–1TIMOTHY 4:1
So, IF one believes the Word of God, what the man said is NOT shocking.
In fact, IF one believes God’s Word, what the man said is not only NOT SHOCKING, it is to be expected.
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.”
