During the End Times, MOST Will Make EXCUSES, Not Effective Preparation


“A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.”
–Proverbs 22:3

We live in times when MOST men are VERY good at manufacturing excuses for their shortcomings.

Never mind the fact that MOST men have spent a great deal of times honing this particular skill.

Despite the culture’s fascination with blame, we live in times when it is not particularly useful to determine who’s at fault.

YET, because man is largely a creature of habit, man will find it quite difficult to break his habit of pointing fingers and laying blame at the feet of someone he’s determined MUST be at fault.

We live in times when men will spend a GREAT DEAL of their free time trying to guess ‘who’s to blame?’

And the day is soon enough arriving when MOST men should regret their spending so much time manufacturing blame–INSTEAD of making effective preparations for what’s coming on the earth.

NOW, MOST men, when the topic of ‘preparation’ arises, immediately begin thinking of PHYSICAL preparations.

“Where will I go in a time of GENUINE emergency?”

“How will I get there?”

“How long will I stay?”

“What will I do?”

HOWEVER–as has been pointed out so many times before: PHYSICAL preparation during the end times is a waste of time and energy.

TRYING TO PREPARE PHYSICALLY IS BESET WITH PROBLEMS–most of  which are NOT apparent until AFTER it’s too late to fix them.

NO matter how intelligent a man is; NO matter how hard-working that man may be; NO matter that man’s ingenuity: NO man can ‘outsmart’ God.

And from studying God’s Word, the end times are a time when God takes a more active hand in determining outcomes.  So, God will NOT be ‘outsmarted.’

Which is one big reason why EFFECTIVE preparation is necessary for survival–BOTH physical survival and ETERNAL survival–during the last days.

We live in times when EFFECTIVE preparation is MUCH different from PHYSICAL preparation.

SO, IF the reader is the last bit interested, the reader should begin preparing SPIRITUALLY for the last days before Jesus Christ returns to the earth.

Because the reader SHOULD strongly desire to make effective preparation, NOT excuses or lay blame for why the last days are like they are.

Learning to pray to God is ONE of those effective preparations one may undertake.

WHAT does the reader think of when the topic of ‘preparation’ arises?

HAS the reader concentrated on making PHYSICAL preparations to lessen the feelings of unease?

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?

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation


“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
