LOVERS OF GOD or Lovers of Pleasures?

“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” (2 Timothy 3:1–5).

In our present time, this is happening more and more as time passes by every day. Also, the prophet Daniel foretold that in the coming end of days that the wicked will do wickedly when he said: “Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; [BUT THE WICKED SHALL DO WICKEDLY]: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand” (Daniel 12:10).

“Who is among you that feareth the LORD, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? Let him trust in the name of the LORD, and stay upon his God” (Isaiah 50:10).

We LOVE GOD and His ONLY BEGOTTEN SON JESUS CHRIST.

“Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Ephesians 5:20).

“God is the LORD, which hath shewed us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.

Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I will exalt thee.

O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever” (Psalm 118:27-29).

END of YEARS = Perilous Times are Coming!

“This know also, that in the [LAST DAYS PERILOUS TIMES] shall come” (2 Timothy 3:1).

We as God’s elect will not be afraid as the heathen because we have refuge in the Kingdom of God.

“Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah” (Psalm 46:10-11).

Jesus says: “All these are the beginning of sorrows. 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” (Matthew 24:8-9).

“And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake. But there shall not an hair of your head perish. In your patience possess ye your souls” (Luke 21:17-19).

“And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake. “But there shall not a hair of your head perish. In your patience possess ye your souls” (Luke 21:16–19).

“And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved” (Matthew 10:21-22).

“I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).

DAY OF CHRIST is the LAST DAY: DAY OF JUDGMENT.

“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come” (Joel 2:31).

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark: But it shall be [ONE DAY] which shall be known to the LORD, [NOT DAY, NOR NIGHT]: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light; in the summer and winter it will be” (Zechariah 14: 6–7, 8).

Jesus says: “Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that [WATCHETH], and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame” (Revelation 16:15).

“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only” (Matthew 24:36).

“[WATCH] ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to [STAND] before the Son of man” (Luke 21:34–36).

“The LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the [MOUNT OF OLIVES], which is before [JERUSALEM] on the east, and the Mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the [EAST] and toward the [WEST], and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the [NORTH], and half of it toward the [SOUTH]” (Zechariah 14:8–9, 4).

“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and [IN JERUSALEM SHALL BE DELIVERANCE], as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call” (Joel 2:32).

“And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the [FOUR WINDS], from one end of heaven to the other” (Matthew 24:31).

“THEN COMETH THE END, when he shall have [DELIVERED UP THE KINGDOM TO GOD, EVEN THE FATHER]; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power” (1 Corinthians 15:24).

“NOW we beseech you, brethren, by the [COMING OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST], and by our [GATHERING TOGETHER UNTO HIM], That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the [DAY OF CHRIST] is at hand” (2 Thessalonians 2:1-2).

A NARROW WAY to ETERNAL LIFE.

Jesus says: “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 7:21).

“I am the light of the world: [HE THAT FOLLOWETH ME SHALL NOT WALK IN DARKNESS, BUT SHALL HAVE THE LIGHT OF LIFE]” (John 8:12).

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat; because strait is the gate, and [NARROW IS THE WAY], which [LEADETH UNTO LIFE], and few there be that find it” (Matthew 7:13–14).

The Apostle Paul said: “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, [WHO WALK NOT AFTER THE FLESH, BUT AFTER THE SPIRIT]” (Romans 8:1).

“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the Kingdom of God” (Galatians 5:19–21).

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith” (Galatians 5:22).

“Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Romans 8:12-13).

SPIRIT OF TRUTH or Spirit of Error?

Every human being has either the Spirit of Truth or the spirit of error: The CHILDREN OF GOD are of the SPIRIT OF TRUTH and the children of the devil are of the spirit of error.

“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world” (1 John 4:4).

“They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them” (1 John 4:5).

“We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the [SPIRIT OF TRUTH], and the [SPIRIT OF ERROR]. Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him” (1 John 4:6-9).

Our Lord Jesus when he comes on the Last Day will separate the Children of God, the Sheep away from the children of the devil, the goats. The Sheep will be redeemed to heaven for ETERNAL LIFE and the goats will be thrown into the Lake of Fire for Everlasting Punishment (Matthew 25:31–34, 42, 46).

FOLLOW JESUS TO THE E N D!

We have no one and nothing to fear because we are GOD’S ELECT: THE CHILDREN OF GOD (Romans 8:38-39).

“The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that [WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD]: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together” (Romans 8:16-17).

“Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time” (1 John 2:18).
Before Jesus returns on the Last Day, the devil, aka Satan will reign for a very short period in Jerusalem (Mark 13:14) (Luke 21:20, 31, 28).

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3–4).
When Jesus comes he will destroy the Devil, aka Satan, that Wicked.

“And then shall that Wicked be revealed, [WHOM THE LORD SHALL CONSUME WITH THE SPIRIT OF HIS MOUTH, AND SHALL DESTROY WITH THE BRIGHTNESS OF HIS COMING]” (2 Thessalonians 2:8).

Jesus says: “Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is” (Mark 13:33).

“Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh” (Matthew 25:13).

“Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32).

“I am with you alway, even unto the [END OF THE WORLD]. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).

GOD’S ELECT.

We will have ups, downs, trials, tribulations and the like throughout our lifetime. Notwithstanding, NOTHING WILL SEPARATE US FROM THE LOVE OF GOD WHICH IS IN JESUS CHRIST.

Let us remember Paul the apostle said: “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us” (Romans 8:18).

“He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? [WHO SHALL LAY ANY THING TO THE CHARGE OF GOD’S ELECT]? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. [WHO SHALL SEPARATE US FROM THE LOVE OF CHRIST]? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us” (Romans 8:35-37).

“[FOR I AM PERSUADED, THAT NEITHER DEATH, NOR LIFE, NOR ANGELS, NOR PRINCIPALITIES, NOR POWERS, NOR THINGS PRESENT, NOR THINGS TO COME, NOR HEIGHT, NOR DEPTH, NOR ANY OTHER CREATURE, SHALL BE ABLE TO SEPARATE US FROM THE LOVE OF GOD, WHICH IS IN CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD]” (Romans 8:38-39).
God’s elect are kept by his power through faith unto salvation, ready to be revealed in the last time (1 Peter 1:5).

“And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the Lord; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation” (Isaiah 25:9).

TIME of TROUBLE is COMING (Daniel 12:1) (Revelation 13:16-17).

Today, most people are not prepared and for the most part are indifferent to events brewing beneath the surface of all developed economies on this earth. But a period of time is coming upon this earth that, as Jesus warned, will be the “beginning of sorrows” (Matthew 2:8).

As a result of the global economic collapse, in addition to famines, pestilences, earthquakes and war (and rumors of war), many people’s lives will be displaced; more people will become homeless, hungry, and helpless. There will be civil unrest as a result of a severe shortage of water, food, housing, work, and other amenities of life never before experienced to this time. However, this will not be the end of the world (Matthew 24:6–7).

When the seventh and last world kingdom comes into being many of its proponents will refer to it as a new age or utopia society because of the preeminence use of technology in our everyday lives. As unique, ubiquitous, and unthreatening as this new world order system may appear to be, the worship of the prince of this world, his seventh king or his image or receiving a mark in the right hand or forehead is idolatry, which is an abomination to God (Revelation 13:16–17).

The children of God will choose NOT to worship this world ruler which is tantamount to worshiping the wicked one. For those of us alive in the Kingdom of God, we must keep faithful to JESUS to the very END!

“If any man have an ear, let him hear” (Revelation 13:9).

“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 13:8).

Our Lord Jesus forewarned us saying: “[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 24:17-21).

“And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved” (Mathew 10:21-22).

“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).

“I am with you alway, even unto the [END OF THE WORLD]. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).

End Of Days

S A L V A T I O N:

Let us keep looking up to the stars at night holding fast to the promise of our Lord, Savior and King Jesus Christ, saying:

“He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels” (Revelation 3:5).

“And I will give him the morning star. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches” (Revelation 2:28-29).

When time ends on the Last Day, the Day of Judgment, “Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven” (Psalm 85:11).

“Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless” (2 Peter 3:14).

“He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Revelation 22:20-21).

T I M E is running OUT towards the E N D (Daniel 12:10).

These words of warning maybe be rejected or even ridiculed by countless people but, without a doubt the signs are everywhere in this world.

The prophet Daniel foretold that in the coming End of Days that the wicked will do more wickedly when he said:

“Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; [BUT THE WICKED SHALL DO WICKEDLY]: and none of the wicked shall understand; [BUT THE WISE SHALL UNDERSTAND]” (Daniel 12:10).

“Who is among you that feareth the LORD, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? Let him trust in the name of the LORD, and stay upon his God” (Isaiah 50:10).

“For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth: Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. [AND HAVE NO FELLOWSHIP WITH THE UNFRUITFUL WORKS OF DARKNESS], but rather [REPROVE THEM]. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light” (Ephesians 5:9–13).

Let us keep steadfast on track of the FAITH of JESUS CHRIST to the E N D.
