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.

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.

HAS the reader ever become aware of two who are supposedly ‘at each other’s throats‘ acting occasionally AS IF they were NOT committed enemies?

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.

End Times Conversion: How Does One Enter The Kingdom of Heaven?

Over the past nine-ten years, ETPR has made it VERY clear that God’s Word and the churches do not agree on much.

Such as becoming a follower of Jesus Christ.

It appears that many of the church-going folk believe that if they spend enough time in a building called a ‘church,’ then God will welcome them into heaven.

NOW, many of the church folk are NICE–but NICE is not the same thing as righteous.

MORE: Do Not Confuse NICE with RIGHTEOUS

A LOT of people are NICE–but most have their own reasons for being so.

God will weigh the hearts of ALL those who dwell upon the earth–and God will find the GREAT MAJORITY of those people wanting.

Particularly during the end times.

Maybe that’s why God’s Word is so clear about the WHOLE WORLD worshiping Satan–including, it is presumed, all of those nice people who congregate in the churches.

“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
–Revelation 13:4,8

SO–and this is EXTREMELY important to ALL who want to avoid being the target of God’s judgment and wrath–how does one convert to being a follower of Jesus Christ and a member of the kingdom of heaven?

The quick and easy answer is that ALL who experience the spiritual rebirth (born again) will be members of the kingdom of heaven.

“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
–John 3:3
Jesus expounded a bit upon his pronouncement a bit a few verses later.

“Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.”
–John 3:5-6

So (the reader is probably asking himself): IF attending one of the churches is not very helpful in becoming a follower of Jesus Christ, what is?

MORE: What Must the Reader Do To Be Eternally Saved?

The clear answer is a person must DESIRE eternal salvation through Jesus Christ.

A person must WANT to be SAVED from eternal damnation.

A person must want this COMPLETELY and SINCERELY.

MORE: Eternal Salvation is For Those Who WANT It

A person must want eternal salvation so badly, that when God looks at his heart, He sees a COMMITTED follower of Jesus.

A person must want this so badly, he wants it RIGHT NOW.

NOT tomorrow.

NOT next week.

NOT even later today.

NOW!

One pretty clear sign that a person is NOT a follower of Jesus Christ: they wait until the last moment to cry out to God, hoping for a positive result where there is none.

What are all of those people waiting for?

Why wait?

Does the person believe that eternal salvation will NOT be necessary?

When God sees that the person REALLY does want eternal salvation, then that person undergoes the transformation of being spiritually reborn (born again).

“And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”
–John 3:13-17

Being ‘born again’ SPIRITUALLY is a requirement of eternity in heaven.

A person must desire to be saved VERY strongly.

God KNOWS who is sincere and who is a pretender.

Man CANNOT fool God.

“for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.”
–1SAMUEL 16:7

AND, while we are at it: undergoing the reborn transformation will MAKE one put one’s faith for the future ENTIRELY on Jesus Christ.

IF the reader is sincere about wanting eternal salvation, he will FORGET all about this present world and the things in it.

He will disregard the plans of the world.

He will disregard the goals of the world.

He will disregard the acclaim of the world.

He will disregard the THINGS of the world.

He will want heaven and God and Jesus instead.

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
–1JOHN 2:15-16

One good way to judge the intentions of a man: does he talk about the world and the things in the world?

His job, his pay, what he will do with his pay, where his kids will go to school, etc.

The follower of Jesus KNOWS exactly how unimportant the things of this world are when compared to eternity.

So there the reader has it: IF the reader REALLY wants eternal salvation more than ANYTHING ELSE, then he will gain it IF he REALLY wants it.

There are many people who SAY they want to go to heaven, but when it comes right down to it, they are just mouthing words: they are not very sincere.

YES, the reader will find it necessary to place his faith in the future in Jesus Christ and in Jesus ALONE–BUT, without a VERY strong desire to be saved and without a spiritual rebirth, the reader is NOT serious AT ALL about this important matter.

Actions DO speak louder than words–and many have actions which say they want this world, NOT heaven.

The reader must DESIRE heaven more than ANYTHING ELSE.

Otherwise, the reader will spend his eternity wishing he had wanted it more than ANYTHING ELSE.

HAS the reader EVER wondered how he becomes a TRUE follower of Jesus?

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.

Lying To One’s Self Has Very Real End Times Consequences

CONSEQUENCES

ALL men lie: it’s part of who they are.

ALL men lie to themselves: it’s a part of what they do.

HOWEVER, during the end times–and at ALL times–lying carries a severe penalty from a holy God.

EVEN lying to one’s self.

“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.”
–Revelation 21:8

“And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
–Revelation 20:15

WHY do men lie–which is a form of deception–to themselves?

Men have their reasons–NONE of which are acceptable to God OR which alter His judgment.

1- Men lie to themselves because they want to believe that they are ‘good people.’

“(For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.)”
–Romans 2:13

“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.”
–Romans 3:10-12

2- Deceived men listen to their hearts, which are ‘desperately wicked.’

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

“He feedeth on ashes: a deceived heart hath turned him aside, that he cannot deliver his soul, nor say, Is there not a lie in my right hand?”
–Isaiah 44:20

As Jesus Himself once put it:

“For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.”
–Mark 7:21-23

3- Men lie to themselves because they can: it is their nature to lie and, when they are lying, who is easier to find and target?

“These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.”
–Proverbs 6:16-19

And make NO MISTAKE: lying–even to one’s self–carries a SEVERE penalty from a HOLY God.

God HATES liars and lying–even though man was created to be a liar.

“A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall not escape.”
–Proverbs 19:5

(IN CASE Proverbs 19:5 was NOT clear enough, the reader only look a few verses later.)

“A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish.”
–Proverbs 19:9

Man may have been created to lie, but man was ALSO created with the capacity to overcome his defects.

Man was created from dirt–from the dust of the ground–and NO man  rises above that earthy beginning.

“In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.”
–Genesis 3:19

Because modern man is no better than any man before him, he lies.

And because man lies, he lies to himself.

For lying–EVEN to one’s self–God demands a heavy judgment.

This judgment is FULLY carried out during the last days.

HOW OFTEN does the reader find himself lying to himself?

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 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.”
-–Romans 1:16

‘I Thought I’d Be Long-Gone Before Any of This Happened!’

TOMBSTONE

Although it has been awhile since it was last heard, there once was a thought which was commonly expressed during ANY discussions about the end times.

“I thought I’d be long gone before any of this happened!”

From listening to the REST of what the person said, it was discovered that this thought was a way of avoiding any talk of the end times. That is, the person would open with that thought and then look around AS IF that was all there was to the conversation.

However, after MORE thought was devoted to the topic, it was revealed that this thought was merely a way of saying, “I haven’t thought about it much. But I have my reasons why that is.  Here’s one.”

“I thought I’d be long gone before any of this happened!”

AFTER some further reflection on the matter, it was determined that more than a few folks REALLY did NOT think much about the end times–though they have been set down in God’s Word for CENTURIES–and REALLY are surprised by both the events which are taking place AND the rapidity of those events happening.

Has the reader ever expressed this thought?

WHICH reason did the reader believe was behind such an admission?

OR, has the reader put ANY thought into the matter at all?

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.
