The Disorientating Suffering from Losing the Little Things of Life


One of the BIGGEST discomforts of living through the end times would have to be the loss of the many LITTLE THINGS which Americans–and the world–have gotten used to enjoying.

IF one is a follower of Jesus, then one will suffer GREAT tribulation and suffer discomfort from the wrath of SATAN.

“For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.”
–Matthew 24:21-22

“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

BUT, IF one is a worker of iniquity and a follower of Satan–which the great majority of the end times world will be–then one will suffer the discomfort of losing all of those little perks one has grown accustomed to in more settled times.

The widespread loss of power will do away with MANY of the little parts of one’s routine which make the day go smoother.

VIDEO GAMES – There are those whose life revolves around traversing the artificial worlds set up by video and computer games.  Without electricity, video and computer games are little more than hunks of plastic covered with brightly-colored pieces of paper.

NO GASOLINE WILL MAKE TRAVEL A BIT HARDER TO DO – Without electricity, gasoline will not be pumped from the storage tanks which hold it to one’s eagerly-waiting vehicle.  Oh, there will be the enterprising souls who use small buckets and other rigged methods to supply themselves with gasoline–but that will soon enough peter out.

WITHOUT GASOLINE AND ELECTRICITY, MANY ASPECTS OF MODERN LIFE WILL DISAPPEAR – Stopping by a coffee shop before one goes to work is a part of MANY routines.  However, the end times will throw many a monkey wrench into those routines. No trucks delivering products means NO PRODUCTS–such as coffee–to sell to former customers.

Here is an IMPORTANT point about the end times: they are SUPPOSED to be difficult so that more people will notice them.  Although man is a master of ignoring when the little things disappear, he will NOT likely be able to ignore all of the chaos of the last days.

KNOWING THE POWER WILL EVENTUALLY COME BACK ON IS A COMFORT – One advantage to facing temporary losses of electricity during more NORMAL times is the comfort one receives from KNOWING that the power will–at some point–come back on–as power companies work to restore power to their customers.  The end times inconveniences will not only be a product of Chaos, they will be (seemingly) unending.  There will be NO guarantees that the power WILL return.

SPORTS WILL FADE AWAY – The ‘competition’ of professional sports will NOT be around if there is no power.  With no power, many will NOT be able to watch (or listen to) their favorite teams anyway. Does the reader know of anyone who structures his life around his favorite team?  (The word ‘fan’ is short for ‘fanatic.’) All who place their hopes and dreams and entertainment on their favorite sports team will be due to be disappointed during the end times.

ALL FORMS OF COMMUNICATION WILL BE DISRUPTED – Books, TV, computers, newspapers, magazines: all will be interrupted by a lack of power.

Most people do NOT miss power that badly–until they do not have any.

MORE: Without Power

Although end times man will have more to worry about than the little things of life, he will miss the many amenities to which he has grown accustomed.

There are MANY other little things not mentioned in this article.  Does the reader have any additions to this list?

A reminder: enjoy the little things while one can.  The little things may go missing.

YES, end times modern man WILL miss the little things of life MORE THAN HE REALIZES.

DOES the reader believe he will genuinely miss the little things of life?

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.

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
