“And they were all amazed, and they glorified God, and were filled with fear, saying, We have seen strange things to day.”
Occasionally, one is asked a UNIQUE question which requires some thought before a satisfactory answer may be delivered.
And so it was that during the past several weeks, someone asked a question NEVER BEFORE entertained by this writer.
“You’re always talking about the end times. What do you think is the most interesting thing about them?”
The most interesting thing about the end times?
It is suspected that this is one of those questions which, if asked of fifty different people, would get fifty different responses.
In other words: the answer is largely a matter of opinion.
Other than a few stuttering phrases, not much of an answer was delivered when this question was first asked. After some thought, however, a suitable reply was formulated.
Though this reply has NOT been given to the one who asked the question YET, it soon will be. Therefore, the reader will get this answer BEFORE the person who originally asked the question.
How often does that happen?
Our answer is (is to be) as follows:
The number of things which are interesting would seem to depend upon who is doing the judging of what is ‘interesting.’
Different folks find different things INTERESTING.
For instance, SOME folks might find the return of Jesus Christ to earth to be of great interest. For others, this event is not even real to them–like a fairy tale.
The return of Jesus is often written as “the end of the world.” BUT, it is not.
Unless one is wicked, evil and/or foolish, then it IS the end of the line for the vast majority of mankind. Life goes on after the return of Jesus Christ: it is just a VERY DIFFERENT life.
The wicked are held against the day of their FINAL JUDGMENT–so they are no longer around.
“And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.”
This final judgment appears to take place about 1000 years after the return of Jesus.
So, NO MORE lying politicians.
NO MORE lying ‘journalists’ working for Satan’s Mouthpiece (the Corporate Media).
NO MORE smiling to your face and then stabbing you in the back.
NO MORE double-crossing neighbors and acquaintances.
The earth becomes the dwelling place of God and Jesus Christ and they no longer inhabit heaven.
“And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.”
ALL of that seems interesting.
It will ALSO be a BIG CHANGE from the way business is conducted NOW.
The Bible also does not say much about the business of BUSINESS.
NO MORE inflation.
NO MORE fake and phony ‘certifications’ from fake and phony government officials.
NO MORE ever-rising prices.
See how interesting that ALL is?
The New Jerusalem seems to be a fairly interesting place–at least from the descriptions contained in God’s Word.
“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife. And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs [1500 miles]. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.”
There is more–but the reader should get the gist of it by the verses given.
That is VERY interesting.
BUT, the New Jerusalem is ONLY for the saints of God; the followers of Jesus.
ALL others will be burning in the fires of affliction.
“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
Those are interesting things, according to one person’s version of “interesting.”
There are a NUMBER of other interesting things about the end times: perhaps, we will return to this topic one day soon?
DOES the reader have any thoughts on what is ‘interesting’ during the end times?
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?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT 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.”
