Life Continues On: Life Does NOT Stop During the Last Days

CONTINUED

Recently, it was noticed HOW MANY people–down through the years–describe what goes on in their life during the last days AS THOUGH THAT LIFE HAD COME TO A COMPLETE STOP AND DIVORCED ITSELF FROM THE END TIME WORLD.

This was even remarked upon a few times over the years–although it seems that remarking on the treatment did NOT change the way those people described their lives during the end times.

Some thought was devoted to WHY IT WAS that some people seemed to separate their lives from the events which occur during the last days. Even though SIGNIFICANT amounts of thought were devoted to this project, NOTHING concrete was ever decided.

Although one man–when the phenomenon was pointed out to him–offered (rather cryptically) that “The end times and last days are a very special time.”

One other time, the circumstance was discussed with an UNbelieving acquaintance, who put forth the notion that “Perhaps it’s because they think of the last days as SEPARATE from the rest of their (PRESENT) life?”

At one time, this writer thought that maybe this guy was onto something,  But, after a consultation with God’s Word, it was decided that there were NO instances where people during the last days allowed their lives to come to a complete halt as they enjoyed the ambiance of the last days.

So, why do many people feel that their lives will come to a screeching halt during the time when God delivers His wrath to a disobedient and rebellious creation?

Despite much thought invested in answering this question, no clear answer has ever been ascertained.

Yes, the accounts in God’s Word of this last days are filled with events which have NEVER BEFORE happened upon the earth.

However, NOT ONLY are humans  VERY accomplished at ‘rolling with the punches‘ during such happenings: MOST men are PROUD (Pride is a sin!) of this ability to adapt to adverse conditions–and are NOT shy at letting others know of their “ability.”

The accounts of the last days (taken from God’s Word, specifically, the Book of Revelation) portray man as going about his business during the last days while judgment falls on the earth and its inhabitants.

EXCEPT for the very clear exception of the Battle of Armageddon, life does not stop while this judgment is occurring.  And even during the Battle of Armageddon, most of the world is NOT present and gets its news of the conflict (it is assumed) in the same, second-hand ways it does now.

During the Battle of Armageddon (where a returning Jesus Christ battles Satan and his man of sin and the kings of the earth and their armies), life only stops for a while for those directly involved in the fighting.

PERHAPS the reader has some sort of explanation which, not only make sense, but satisfies the restrictions which are in God’s Word?

DOES the reader believe that life will continue on while God judges the world?

OR, does the reader believe that life will stop and pay heed to that judgment?

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.

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
