The End Times in a Nutshell: For Believers and Nonbelievers Alike

nutshell

in a nutshell

(idiomatic) In summary; briefly or simply.

He had a lot to say, but his answer, in a nutshell, was no.

Dozens, hundreds, THOUSANDS of words have been written on the end times–both the MAIN POINTS and the FINER POINTS, as well.

Will ONE MORE ARTICLE ABOUT THE END TIMES matter to the believer?

Probably not.

Will ONE MORE ARTICLE ABOUT THE END TIMES matter to the non-believer?

Again, probably not.

ONE MORE ARTICLE about the main end times players (Satan the dragon, the man of sin, Jesus Christ, the Two Witnesses, etc.) will mostly likely NOT convince the believer to change his ways: ALL who have undergone the transformation of being re-born spiritually have ALREADY radically changed their relationship with God, His Son, Jesus Christ and sin.

ONE MORE ARTICLE about the main end times players (Satan the dragon, the man of sin, Jesus Christ, the Two Witnesses) will most likely NOT convince the non-believer to change his ways: the non-believer does NOT change so much as he mocks and scoffs at that which he does NOT believe.

Ditto for ONE MORE ARTICLE about the events of the end times, the warnings of the end times or the calamities of God’s wrath being poured out upon the earth and those who dwell upon the earth (except “those whose names are [] written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”) for BOTH believers and NON-believers.

So, what are the end times IN A NUTSHELL?

Perhaps the following:

“One either believes the Word of God or one doesn’t believe it. IF one believes the Word of God, that book contains ALL that is necessary for one to live in the end times.  IF one does NOT believe the Word of God, then one will skip merrily down the broad way to his destruction, all the while defending his unbelief.”

“Enter ye in at the strait [narrow] gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
–Matthew 7:13-14

DOES the reader claim to believe the Word of God, and then add a “BUT” or “EXCEPT” immediately afterwards?

DOES the reader claim to NOT believe the Word of God?

It is not YET too late: there is still a little 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?

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
