“…From day to day, as we live we have to make decisions, and when we make those decisions, things don’t always turn out the way we’d like them to or want them to. No matter what we feel or what seems real, things change. We don’t have a crystal ball to look into, to know what our future is going to be, or what it gonna be…” [Whatever We Had, We Had…Barry White]. But when we look at the Word of God. God tells us about the future. He tells us what is coming. [Matthew 24].
You know, the Apostle Paul wrote Timothy a letter while he was in prison in Rome. He wrote Timothy to tell him that difficult, troublesome, violent, threatening and dangerous days were just around the corner.” Don’t be naive. Don’t think that everything is going to be okay. Its not going to be okay! The “Last Days” will be fierce, violent, dangerous and frightening. [Scripture – Psalms 2 & Timothy 3:1-11]. What we are seeing all around us is a society on the brink of collapse! This is proven by the 18 characteristics of the last days presented by Paul. And the Bible does not leave us guessing about what is going to happen, it speaks very clearly, very simply, very straightforwardly. Therefore, “As the World Turns,.” as our world seems to be going its own way, doing its own thing, I implore you, to decide today, to repent and to give your life to Christ. Jesus is our only hope!
Hear the call God is giving you today. There is an urgency in our world that has never existed before. Warnings of Imminent Dangers! DO NOT trifle with your soul’s salvation, “Whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.” [James 4:14]. The Urgency of Today [Proverbs 29:1]. The Insistence of God – [Proverbs 1: 24-28]. Know that “TODAY” may be the very last time you may be exposed to the Gospel of the grace of God. Don’t blow it! “NOW,” “TODAY,” repent of your sins and accept Jesus as your Savior. For the Bible declares, “Behold, “NOW” is the acceptable time; behold, “NOW” is the day of salvation.” “NOW” is Mercy offered. “NOW” is the invitation from God, reaching down from Heaven. Know that the Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. [2 Peter 3:9].
The time is now for you to discern this time, this age and period in which we live, and understand what God is doing among the nations. His purpose is being fulfilled according to plan, and His Kingdom is coming. Do not be deceived! God is not mocked. “Unless ye REPENT ye shall likewise perish” [Acts 2:39].
“And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat upon him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword [war], and with hunger [famine], and with death and with the beasts of the earth [Revelation 6:8]
Now you can deny the fact that Jesus is coming soon if you want too, but you can’t change the truth of it. Jesus is coming, and He is coming soon. And when He comes, it will be with “sudden destruction” [2Thessalonians]. This world is preparing itself for the fulfillment of God’s prophecies. The signs are everywhere. I beg you, don’t take it lightly; your eternity is at stake. Jesus says, “Come now, and let us reason together: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool”. [Isaiah 1:18]. “Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteousness man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.” [Isaiah 55:7]. “As the World Turns,” how will you respond?
End Times Signs… [Daniel 12:4] [Zechariah 12:3;] [Matthew 13:25-30] [Matthew 24:6-14,24] [Luke 21:25-26]
