“But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren…”
As hard as it might be to imagine, there will be folks who will choose to ignore the very clear signs of the end times.
Wars, pestilence (disease), earthquakes, worldwide government ordering about those it control: any may seem hard to ignore.
BUT, there will be those who choose to NOT pay attention to these disturbances.
Some will do so because they will MISTAKENLY consider the series of events to be “just as had happened YESTERDAY.”
Others will ignore the coming of Jesus Christ because they have a built-in bias against all things Christian and, especially, all things JESUS CHRIST.
Still others will IGNORE the very clear events happening all around them because they have learned through the years, that “this too shall pass.” is an acceptable way to live your life–at least in times that did NOT precede the return of Jesus Christ to earth.
Although the saying was particularly LOVED by Abraham Lincoln, he was not the only one espousing it.
Deception wears MANY hats.
There are a NUMBER of reasons one could give for modern man choosing to ignore what’s coming to pass upon the earth. MOST of those reasons have, at their firm foundations, a healthy desire for self-preservation. A great many of these folks figure that if you see no evil, no evil will befall them?!?
SO, they ignore what everyone else sees.
Others choose to ignore the excitement taking place BECAUSE they do not want to appear to set a bad example for others (‘keep a stiff upper lip‘).
And still others will believe that ‘this is NOT really happening’ and if they acknowledge the events, they validate those events. And so, they simply will not acknowledge those events.
There are many reasons for folk alive at the time to CLEARLY CHOOSE to IGNORE all that is transpiring around them.
And, the decision of IGNORE the chaos and confusion is a CHOICE one makes. Many do not want to appear to be unseemly OR, at a loss to know what is the right thing to do.
There are many different reasons for looking at the events of the end times and DECIDING to ignore them for what they are: God’s judgment on man the earth on which man lives.
NONE are GOOD reasons.
But they ARE reasons.
DURING that chaotic time, what will the reader choose to do?
It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: 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.”
