Watch and do not be deceived

We are living in a time that is close to what is called the “end times“. Many people are asking and wondering what will happen next and the truth is that no one knows except God. I do not claim to have knowledge about any future events except what is contained in scripture, specifically the last book of the Bible, the Revelation of Jesus Christ. Many say that this book is mostly metaphor or allegorical and not to be taken seriously, but that is not what the Bible says.

In the first few verses of Revelation it says: 3Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the things which are written in it; for the time is near.   Rev. 1:3

The time is near and we need to be watching the news from the Middle East because that is where the first sign will come from that the time is near and is now. It may not be today or tomorrow, but be watchful and filter the news through the Bible’s prophecy about this time. Most of the prophecies concerning the end of the age have already come about and come to pass. Our Hope is coming and the whole world will see Him!

The god of this world knows that his time is nearing an end which is why there is so much deception and war and all manner of other problems which are in the world and the news daily. The one who is in our world and who goes around seeking those that he may deceive is Satan and his fallen angels. They are causing many to follow religions which are contrary to God, even if they seem to be Christian religions. He is the father of lies and can twist scripture so that many will believe his lies and think that they are following the truth.

God loves us all and wants all to come to Him but as many as he can prevent, that is what Satan will do regardless of how it is done. “He replied: “Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am he,’ and, ‘The time is near.’ Do not follow them. Luke 21:8

I know that there will be some who may comment that I am saying that the time is near and I am but the facts from the Bible itself and the prophecies concerning Israel bear the proof of what I am saying here. I am not trying to give a date that He will return because even Jesus said that only the Father knows when that time will be.

The only message that I am giving here is that we must be watching. Pay attention to the news, especially from Israel and the Middle East, because that is where the evidence will show first. Pray and read and study your Bible, listen to what is said about the end times in prophecy. If the King James is too hard to understand get a Bible in the New Living Translation which is modern English. We cannot be taken by surprise if we watch and pray. Check what I have here by comparing it to God’s Word so that you will know that it is true.

  1. We have been saying ‘the time is near’ for a while now. We have heard of the signs that never seem to end in the prophesied ‘end’. When you say God wants us to come to him, you make it sound like our creator is a supplicant and we are in a position to deny Him something. If you acknowledge God to be omniscient and omnipotent, I fail to see how you can comsider the devil denying him anything. If God wanted to save everyone on this planet, He would have because as our creator he knows what to use as bait. If Paul could say what he did in 1 Cor 9:19-23, why do we think God can’t do such?

  2. “He will come like a thief in the night.”

  3. (Watching) for our Wonderful Blessed Hope, King Jesus Christ to Rapture us to the New Jerusalem (Heaven) (Blessed) are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find (Watching) as shared in Bible Prophecy. Read the Scriptures: Proverbs 8:34, Luke 12:37, and Revelation 16:15 We are told many Times in the Bible to WATCH, and Notice Revelation 3:3 Shares (those who are not Watching, He will come like a Thief.

    Now is the Time to Watch for King Jesus Christ of Nazareth, and Love His Appearing. Infact if you Love His Appearing (Rapture) you will receive a Special Crown! as Shared in 2 Timothy 4:8
