With all that going on in the world anyone in their right mind would have to agree that something’s going on in the world beyond our control. Yet we in the USA are so privileged that we barely notice that life is getting out of hand everywhere else—where our brothers and sisters in Christ are being brutally killed, decapitated or persecuted. But it stands to reason that third world countries would be hit first with this realization since their lives are a daily struggle for survival. they are ruled by evil thugs and where radical Islamists are breaking down their doors to do them harm just because they are Christians or of another religion.

Nevertheless, as Americans we have been either in denial or didn’t understand that this calamity could soon overtake us too. (That is until recently.) Now our populous is yearning for the good old days. The prophets of God wrote the history of the world and of things to come under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and everything they wrote has proven to be true, from the history  of Creation up until this very day’s uncertainty and beyond.

The problem is that too many of us are biblically illiterate, and too many others are in denial and blind to these facts. The god of this world has them blinded and they are stumbling recklessly into the ever darkening future. Then of course there are others who don’t want anything to do with spiritual matters or accountability—because their deeds are evil. I run into both of them all the time now.

The world is collapsing into a jumbled mass of conflict and uncertainty. Every day we read of random murder and madness descending upon our society and the world at large. But some will finally come to their senses too late during the Tribulation period. That being the case, many will have to endure unspeakable horror and radiation poisoning if not immediate immolation while standing on their feet like the Old Testament prophet Daniel describes.

Many are still living under the delusion that things will go on as before— marrying and giving in marriage (sometimes for the fourth or fifth time and scratching desperately for money). At this point in time we ought to be on our knees praying in our nation’s churches day and night.

Here’s what Jesus said about the time, in which we live in Matthew 24:

“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And you shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that you be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in various places.  All these are the beginning of sorrows.”

I’m surprised that the Church isn’t correlating Jesus’ words with all that’s happening today. I can’t help but believe we are living well within that time frame right now, even as we speak. The remainder of Matthew chapter 24 reveals the Tribulation period (which is right around the corner). To understand more, read your Bible, repent and receive Christ – if you haven’t done so already.

I recently witnessed to two different men on different occasions at the local fishing pier. The   day before I had witnessed to another man, all three were atheists. And although they were unbelievers, they listened to what I had to say. One said I could come and fish on his property.  Another actually gave me a fishing lure. The third offered to take me out for a beer, but since I don’t drink I declined.

Today I went to the pier again since the fishermen were nibbling, I’m glad I did, because I was able to meet another Christian writer and was able to witness to two others. I gave them my two sided card and told them things to think about, the end times, prophecy, bible quotes, Jesus and my testimony. Since everyone knows what’s going on in the world most are open to dialogue, especially if you have something of substance to share.

What capped the day for me was when I stopped to talk to a mildly dark skinned middle aged man who was leaning over the guard rail watching a dolphin surface and dive.  With a smile I asked if the porpoise he was watching was a dolphin or a porpoise. The question caught him off guard but after mulling it over— a grin crossed his face, and he knew I was only being facetious.

I asked where he was from and he replied that he was from Egypt. I told him I was a Christian and he smiled even bigger and said “I am too!” he explained that he was a Coptic Christian and that he was here having escaped Muslim persecution. Since I’m a history buff and love archeology I asked if the Jews had built the pyramids, he said they had and gave me a rundown about how he thinks they did it. We talked until his wife came on the scene. I gave him a light hug and left. What a wonderful and exciting day I had. I didn’t catch any fish but then again, I’m a fisher of men, not fish.

Surprisingly, I get more respect from nonbelievers than religious people. These are the same religious people whom you email and get no response from—religious leaders and Bible teachers who turn away from you when they see you coming into the church—religious people who would rather talk about football than the things of God…

 Do you know anyone like that?

 I live a most interesting life, and it’s all because of Jesus. Why don’t you join in the harvest; the fields are ripe and the world needs all the help it can get; just remember to put on the full armor of God.

    It is a biblical fact according to the bibles own figures that last days are the last 70 years of the number of years between BC596…to AD70 = 666 yrs the period of time outlined once as a MAN and once as a BEAST in Daniel Ch 2 & 7 respectively .as the time the 7 fold (7 seals/trumps vials) curse of the law of Moses was poured out on the physical seed of Israel purified until only a spiritual seed was left…

    This is also how we know slam dunk that Muhammad was a false teacher…just like most “bible teaching Christians”…….THE SECOND COMING Thou Fool! “I come quickly” so “Hold fast till i come”… NOT …“in another 2000 yrs I might be coming soon any time now, so hold fast”!?! …those that deny the second coming of Christ in that first generation are practicing a damnable heresy in denying the lord that bought them ( 2Peter 2:1-2 ;2Tim 4:8)…….Mat 7:23..”I NEVER KNEW YOU” …..Mat 10:33. But whosoever shall deny me before men……..sound familiar?…. ……. If I said I am coming to your house in this generation when these things happen but no one knows the day or hour what fool would think I might be coming in 2000 years latter!?!? ..2 Tim 4: 4. And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be TURNED UNTO FABLES.

    Gal 1: 8. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

    The book of Revelation offers us an interesting Theological dilemma. It states Rev 22:16. I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. Revelation also states it is “the true sayings” of Jesus and that it is “the testimony of Christ”. If this is not “the gospel of Jesus Christ” then what is it and should we consider it accursed testimony of an angel? If it is not to be considered accursed, then it cannot be some other gospel message then what was already given previously. However, this is the conundrum, for if this is the gospel message, then why do so few understand it? There is a possibility which few consider but is the overall thesis of this apology. The reason people don’t understand revelation is because they never understood what the gospel message was in the first place! In that case, where does that put those who claim it is not essential for salvation? Do you not find it quite curious that the most “Personally” given NT book By Jesus himself, is the least understood and given the least importance for Salvation in Christendom?….There are numerous preachers and bible exegetes but as Paul said “… I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge” . Most who profess the name of Christ are feeding on doctrines of devils and the ignorant.. There are, without question, many “qualified” teachers and scholars with many years of “dedication” and “solid education”. However, teachers, no matter how well lettered or numbered in degrees; if obtained from others; who are just as equally ignorant in such matters, are just “ blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”………………

    Those looking for a physical return of Christ and your physical body to “leave the dirt” resurrected (1Cor 15:36-37) you are carnal mined & or living in prov 26:12

    DAY OF THE LORD”/ YEAR OF THE LORD – does NOT last for 24 hours!?!..Also means the day of resurrection & judgment do not last for one hour or one day either! They only begin (NOT END) in a certain hour & on a certain 24 hour day ….”SUN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS to arise”…..NOT..”come & get (your new resurrected body) it while it is still hot, only 24 hours of solar power left”!?!

    The second coming took place already and Christ promised that only HIS PEOPLE would see him ….John 14:19. Yet a little while, and THE WORLD SEETH ME NO MORE;….. [2 Cor 5:16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ AFTER THE FLESH, yet NOW HENCEFORTH KNOW WE HIM NO MORE….(here the Context of John 14 is his second coming)…..continued…..but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. 20. AT THAT DAY .. 21. He that hath my commandments, and KEEPETH THEM, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and WILL MANIFEST MYSELF TO HIM……(again taking note “as he is” or 1Jn 3:2)

    22. Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, HOW IS IT THAT THOU WILT MANIFEST THYSELF UNTO US AND NOT UNTO THE WORLD? 23. Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, HE WILL KEEP MY WORDS: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.( Rev 3:20) 24. He that loveth me not.. (1Cor 16:22)…. KEEPETH NOT MY SAYINGS: ( REV 9:16-20)

    REVELATION 1:7. Behold, HE COMETH WITH CLOUDS; and EVERY EYE SHALL SEE HIM, …. There is a parallel here with ………….Exodus 24:10. And THEY SAW THE GOD OF ISRAEL : and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness. 11. And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: also THEY SAW GOD, and did eat and drink………..But Christ said….. John 1:18. NO MAN HATH SEEN GOD AT ANY TIME; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. A person can see with their understanding and or see with their eyes…. It can see “seen” for certain that everything that Christ described was seen by the folks of that day in His coming but do they perceive that was him? …So what Christ said is true every eye saw him but the world does not see him….. With the eye they and folks still today can see everything Christ described to have taken place, but they do not “keep” ( believe and understand) his words as such they do not see him nor shall they ever.

    The saints who have physical died faithful in the flesh (every man in his own order) are changed in the blink of an eye & caught up to sit on that Great white throne ( this congregation of the saints is the body of Christ that folks will answer to at the judgment and these saints will judge all men who cannot see Christ along with the rest of the world……Folks think they are waiting to see Jesus but they will NEVER see Jesus himself they will only see the body of Christ condemn them the saints judge the world (Rev 3:21; 1 Cor 6:2 et al) the saints are the body of Christ…that is the only part of Christ they shall see….only the saints shall see God face to face…..most peoples idea of the second coming & day of the Lord and the judgment is completely wrong
