What One Worries About During the Last Days

A recent topic for thought occurred when while thinking of the various aspects of the last days before the return of Jesus Christ.

“I wonder what one worries about during the last days?”

After just a small amount of thinking, it was decided that this question–like so many others involving those involving that time period–has TWO answers: one, IF one is a believer in God’s Word; and a second IF one is NOT.

The answer is VERY simple and straightforward IF one is a believer.

“Not much.”

The believer has his reasons for taking this approach.

“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
–Philippians 3:6-7

“Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”
–1PETER 5:6-7

“Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?”
–Matthew 6:25-26

God LOVES His followers.

The believer, because he has the Holy Spirit of God residing in him–AND because of his previous experiences with the subject matter– KNOWS that God really does care for him.

“He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.”
–1JOHN 5:9

The believer KNOWS the REAL power of prayer–real prayer with the Holy Spirit of God helping that prayer to be heard by God, who will answer his requests because He answers ALL He hears–unlike those who pretend to be children of God.

“And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.”
–1JOHN 5:14-15

“Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.”
–Romans 8:26-27

SO, even as the world around him appears to be falling apart, the BELIEVER should NOT worry about much during the last days.

Of course, the BELIEVER is human and cannot miss the odd happenings of the last days which are NOT normal.

So, the BELIEVER is tested in this way.

IF one is an UNBELIEVER, then one has NO assurances by the most powerful entity in the cosmos.

NOT for protection and safety.

NOT for provision and deliverance from want.

NOT for ANYTHING.

Mostly, all the UNBELIEVER has to comfort him are his associations with other workers of iniquity AND his previous preparations (which he will find are woefully INADEQUATE).

SURE, those preparations looked good BEFORE any of God’s judgments began to fall.

BUT, once the time before the return of Jesus Christ REALLY gets underway, the UNBELIEVER will discover just how much he NEEDS a God he does NOT believe in.

SO, during the last days, there are TWO very different people with TWO very different ideas of what they should be concerned about.

TO which group does the reader belong?

WHY or WHY NOT?

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.

“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

WELL Worth Repeating

REPEAT

Occasionally, one come across something that bears repeating.

And so it was with an article written about a year ago.  That article is reproduced for the readers’ possible edification.

There are occasions which emphasize when a thought is worth repeating.

And so it was that a few days ago, a topic came up and it was remarked that THAT thought was worth repeating.

FIRST, the original thought:

…when two followers of Satan are working together, one of the first things they do is establish that they 1-do not like each other; 2- they hate each other; or, 3- are fighting against one another.

Democrats and Republicans, Russia and the USA, members of the same family who toil together for evil ends, famous celebrities who are “feuding” with each other: it happens so often, one occasionally has to wonder, “Does Satan have a university or school where he teaches his followers these tricks?”
—-University of Satan

It was while discussing the deception of two working for the same goal, yet ACTING AS IF they are NOT co-operating, but are instead actually to be OPPONENTS of each other, that it was discovered that this thought MAY be worth repeating.

After a bit of thinking on the matter, it was determined that YES, THIS WAS WORTH REPEATING.

The discussion in question occurred after one of the participants in the discussion brought up someone (We’ll call him ‘Person A’.) they knew who ACTED AS IF THEY DETESTED Person B.

Even though it was readily apparent that the two were working together.

IN FACT, it was SO apparent the two were working together, the person relating the story chuckled and made a remark.

Why would someone you hate do little favors for you? This was how I knew: you could see it. You do little favors for your FRIENDS, not your ENEMIES!”

There were TWO points which were then raised.

1- “The Bible says you should treat your enemies well.  It says that is like heaping burning coals upon their head!”

“If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink: For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the LORD shall reward thee.”
–Proverbs 25:21-22

“Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.”
–Romans 12:19-20

2- “Maybe the two partners couldn’t see that others could tell when one was doing favors for the other?”

The thought worth repeating?

Not everyone who appears to attack another is that person’s enemy.  Often, when two workers of iniquity join forces against a target, they pretend to be at odds with each other.  This is a fairly common deception, which is used to deceive, not only the targeted person, but others as well.

This deception is behind all of the fake feuds about which Satan’s Mouthpiece (the Corporate Media) writes so much.  The two partners can be two countries, two people or two groups of people.

Even IF One Has the Very Best Intentions, Imagination ALWAYS Becomes Wicked

IMAGINATION

Imaginations are a fallen part of a fallen mind of a fallen man.

So, imagination starts out with a couple of strikes against it.

EVEN IF one has the BEST of intentions when one begins his journey into imagination, one CANNOT change what is basically a tool of Satan into something which is pleasing to God.

God pronounced what He thought of the imaginations of the generation which lived during the flood.

“And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”
–Genesis 6:5

So, God Himself had NOTHING GOOD to say about man’s imaginations.

God did not make ANY announcements which softened the judgment pronounced upon IMAGINATION.

And how can imagination be ANYTHING but wicked? After all, it comes from having an evil heart and free time on one’s hands to give rein to those evil thoughts.

“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”
–Jeremiah 17:9

IMAGINATION is nothing but a tool of Satan–and Satan, many times, corrupts on a slow-but-steady plan.

It matters not how good the intentions are when one chooses to imagine: one’s imaginings will soon enough prove wicked.

Yes, God gives man the ability to see what is not there; BUT, man has LIMITS to how this gift is to be gainfully used.  Since man’s fall, this gift–like so many other good things from God–seems to have been corrupted.

God’s Word shows the way to treat imaginations.

“Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.”
–2CORINTHIANS 10:5-6

So God is not even a fan of idle thoughts–which are the building blocks, really, of imaginations.

“See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.  Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.”
–Ephesians 5:15-17

Something for the reader to think about the next time he sits back to relax and give free rein to a few ‘harmless’ idle thoughts.

WHAT does the reader think of the old warning: “Idle hands are the devil’s workshop“?
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.

The Last Days Are a Time of Testing For EVERYONE: The Wicked Will Be Tried, BUT So Are The Believers

TESTING

Wrath and judgment.

Although it has been mentioned (more than once) in these parts, it is mentioned AGAIN because of the IMPORTANCE of the topic.

The end times–and particularly, the last days before the return of Jesus–are a time of testing for EVERYONE: believer and UNbeliever alike.

The BELIEVER is tested because God has declared that the end times are a time of testing for BELIEVERS.

“Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.”
–Revelation 2:10

“Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.”
–Matthew 24:9-10

“And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.”
–Revelation 6:9-11

“For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.”
–Mark 13:19

“For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.”
–Matthew 24:21

“Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.”
–Revelation 12:12

So the believer will experience all of this MOSTLY because of the wrath of Satan–for all of those who are followers of Jesus.

THEREFORE, believers face the wrath of Satan–while UNBELIEVERS face the wrath of God, who created ALL.

“God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth, and is furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies.”
–Nahum 1:2

“According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompence.”
–Isaiah 59:18

Whose wrath would the reader rather face: God’s or Satan’s?

“And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.”
–Luke 12:4-5

HAS the reader EVER wondered about him being testing during the last days?

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.
