EVERYBODY wants to be a STAR!
Regardless of the temporary discomfort some think they may experience, many men believe that MAN–not God the Creator, not Jesus Christ the LORD, not even Satan the Deceiver or his man of sin–is the STAR of the show we call the “end times.”
Many who dwell upon the earth believe this to be because so many are DECEIVED by Satan–and the deceived will believe about ANY lie they are told by Satan OR the world (which is anxious to do Satan’s bidding).
“And the great dragon…that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world”
In Man’s telling, MAN is the STAR.
1- MAN populates the armies which lose to Jesus Christ at Armageddon.
“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 Christ], and against his army.”
2- MAN provides the government which the man of sin rides to worldwide domination–for three-and-one-half-years.
“Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.”
3- It is MAN who populates the earth and dwells upon it. Therefore, it is MAN who gives his worship to whom he will–and this includes worshiping Satan and Satan’s beasts.
“And 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.”
Because of the preceding (and more), MAN mistakenly believes he is the STAR of the end times.
In order to herd the deceived to where the men controlled by Satan want them to go, a variety of lies and stories are told to end times man until those poor, deceived souls actually believe those lies and stories.
One of the more egregious lies told end times man are those having to do with what is called “climate change.’ The fear and anxiety caused by those stories enable those who imagine themselves in control of God’s creation to herd frightened end times man to where he will unwittingly do Satan’s bidding. Never mind that end times man COULD quite easily KNOW he is being lied to IF ONLY he would keep a weather journal of the local weather. BUT, end times man is too busy and too deceived to do this and so, end times man lives with his extra few seconds saved and his belief in Satan’s lies intact.
Those who imagine that they control the earth will harm the earth in order to control it.
God says as much in His Word.
“And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.”
One reason God has His Son, Jesus Christ, return to earth during the end times is to JUDGE the mischief of man. God has appointed His Son, Jesus Christ, the warden of that JUDGMENT.
“Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.”
UNTIL that day when Jesus Christ returns, man will CONTINUE to tell the stories and lies of SATAN.
And a great many of those stories and lies have MAN as the star of that end times show.
DOES the reader have some second thoughts about the GREATNESS of MAN during the last days?
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.”
