As I watch the news, I don’t know why I am amazed, but I am. Jesus warned us that these things would be happening in the end times.
Mat 24:3-8 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? (4) And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. (5) For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. (6) And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. (7) For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. ( 8 ) All these are the beginning of sorrows.
He said in verse 8 that all these are the beginning of sorrows. You may say that earthquakes, wars and pestilence have been a party of history since the beginning; and you would be right. But Jesus is saying when we see ALL these things happening together, know that the time is near because they are the beginning of sorrows. This phrase speaks of the birth pains that a woman experiences during child birth. What happens in the course of delivery? The pains get closer together and they get stronger! So Jesus is saying that when ALL these things happen together, the birth pains are going to get worse.

Are you worried? If you’re a believer, your answer should be a resounding No! Prior to the seven-year Tribulation, born-again believers will be
But for the person who didn’t want to commit to “religion” or that “churchy” stuff, it won’t go well for you. After the church is raptured, these people will be duped by the antichrist and will believer the lies he speaks. You may think that you won’t and that you will get saved once the Rapture is proved to you. However, the Bible says differently, my friend:
This is you, if you did not go through the Rapture, reader! You will believe the lies and God will send you a strong delusion. The Greek words for delusion are:
From G1756; efficiency (“energy”): – operation, strong, (effectual) working.
Feminine of G4108 (as abstraction); objectively fraudulence; subjectively a straying from orthodoxy or piety: – deceit, to deceive, delusion, error.
So this delusion will be a strong, effectual working energy that is objectively fraudulent (deliberate deceit and trickery) and subjectively straying from Christian faith. Friend, you won’t be able to help yourself because you will believe the lies!
The time is coming when it will be too late for you to repent. You will remember each opportunity you were given by God to be saved; you will remember each time you laughed it off and ignored it. Please Reader, repent and accept Christ into your life. (Act 16:31, Rom 10:9) I want to be sure that anyone who reads the posts on this blog can know beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are going to Heaven. Have you received Christ as your Saviour? If no, your sins are not covered by His sacrificial offering of Himself. You have not been redeemed by His blood. It is no coincidence that God has placed you here for such a time as this so that you may be saved if you are not already.
