Many people speculate on when Jesus is returning to take those that follow Him away; also known as the rapture. But Jesus said
But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, Matthew 14:37:38
¨ Though the human side of me detests all of the hatred leading to the senseless killings that are rampant today,
¨ though I am saddened in my heart as I see more and more suicides and attempted suicides among every status of society,
¨ though I simply hate what the rampant use and abuse of drugs is doing to our children and has done to a large portion of our adult society regardless of the race,
¨ though I abhor the total loss of morality in regards to sexuality and marriage no matter the gender,
¨ though I am baffled by the same sex/homosexual and same sex marriage issue,
¨ though I am embarrassed for and outraged at all of the sexual harassment activity now coming to light,
I am fully aware of what the word of God says in relation to these times we are now living.
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 2 Timothy 3:1-7
Those of us who believe in God and His word should recognize that we are living in the end times and thus we should be more about our heavenly Father’s business more now than ever before.
But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 2 Timothy 3:14
And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. Matthew 24:14
Yes, we mourn the senseless deaths, the moral decay that has eroded the very fabric of our society but saints, it is time to look up; be as the sons of Issachar and recognize the signs of the times.
Come on church (body of Christ) let’s do our part and put an end to the gross darkness that has taken over the world. This is not the time to be vying over church positions, arguing over religions and other insignificant things. We need to be prayerful, be praying, be alert and be sharing the good news of Jesus!
