Unfortunately, there is a sense of ease, even obliviousness to the time that we are living in by untold numbers of people throughout all corners on this earth.
In 2016 it did not happen, neither in 2017 or 2018; and it may not happen either in 2019. But, one coming year by the word of God it will happen.
“And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter” (Revelation 8:7-11).
Therefore, be prepared and do as Jesus says: “…repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:15) because he warns, saying: “Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3).
“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).
“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27).
“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad” (2 Corinthians 5:10).
However, Jesus also says: “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only” (Matthew 24:36).
“Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace” (2 Thessalonians 2:14-16).
