The Bible is at least one-third prophecy and many people discount it as just an old book.
We are living in a time of prophecies being fulfilled before our eyes and yet many are not paying attention. Why? Because more than two-thirds of the world doesn’t believe the words in the Bible. Many of them know of the Word and the Bible but there are many who do not think that those words are the Truth.
Nearly all of the prophecies of the Bible have come true already and many more that pertain to this time in history are being fulfilled almost every day. God doesn’t want anyone to be cast into hell with the devil and his demons but so many refuse to follow Jesus today and will be cast away from Him. Knowing about prophecy and Scripture and Jesus is great but knowledge is not enough. You have to believe in Jesus for your salvation and repent of your sins and follow Him until the day He returns for the church, His Bride.
God is coming back in the Person of Jesus Christ as King! This will happen at the end of the seven years of Tribulation but it will happen. God always keeps His promises and Jesus said He would return to rule as King for one thousand years. If you don’t believe in Him as your Savior, you should. Your eternity depends on it. Jesus is coming back! I believe it will happen in just a few years.
I know, it sounds like I’ve lost my mind but if you read the Bible and the prophecies which point to the time we are living in today you can see that these prophecies are coming true…NOW! The signs of the end are all around us. It isn’t “global warming”, it is the judgment of God on the Earth and those who have ignored His call to be saved. The things happening now are not as bad as during the seven years of Tribulation.
Satan hates us! Why? Because we are made in the image of God. Something that angels cannot know. All of the wars, all of the diseases, everything that has been bad and wrong in our world has been engineered by Satan. God allowed it, but He did so for our souls to turn to Him for salvation. I pray that everyone who reads this will give their heart to Jesus as their Savior soon. We are not promised tomorrow, today is the day of salvation.
The Parable of the Ten Virgins
1“At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. 3 The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take along any extra oil. 4 But the wise ones took oil in flasks along with their lamps. 5 When the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and fell asleep.
6 At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’
9 ‘No,’ said the wise ones, ‘or there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’
10 But while they were on their way to buy it, the bridegroom arrived. Those who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet, and the door was shut.
11 Later the other virgins arrived and said, ‘Lord, lord, open the door for us!’
12 But he replied, ‘Truly I tell you, I do not know you.’
13 Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.
The church is the Bride of Christ and He is returning to take her home to be with Him. When that day or hour is only the Father knows. I pray that many more will come to know Jesus as their Savior before that time because when the church is taken, as the bride was taken to the groom’s father’s house, the wedding will begin and those who were not ready will be left. God has given many signs in His Word for the church to know and for them to believe but there are so few who actually believe it today.
There may be as few as ten percent of people who “claim” to be Christians who actually believe that Jesus is even coming back. I pray that many more will come to know Him before that day comes when the trumpet will sound and the dead in Christ will rise and those of us who are looking for Him will be taken up to be with Him forever.
Life on Earth will be so much worse after this event takes place. People think that things are bad today but when that day comes, the years following that will be much, much worse. I pray that anyone who reads this will seek to know Jesus as their Savior if they don’t know Him already. Please, read God’s Word and seek out a Bible-teaching church so that you can be informed and know that you will be part of the wedding party on that day.
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen. Matthew 6: 9-13
Why can’t we pray this prayer in reverence and Truth today? Because our culture and our society don’t believe that God is Who the Bible says He is! People pray this prayer as if it is magic. It is a “model prayer”. It is the way we should pray all of the time. Not word for word but the form of our prayer. Yet, it is used in church and in many other places as THE prayer to pray but Jesus was teaching His disciples HOW to pray.
We are to give honor and glory to God first and foremost. Praying that God’s purposes will be done on Earth and that His Kingdom will come to Earth one day. God does provide for us every day but we should acknowledge it in prayer. He also offers forgiveness to us every minute of every day through the atonement of the blood of Jesus. We should acknowledge that God doesn’t lead us into temptation but He will give us the ability to resist it if we belong to Him. We should also recognize that the Kingdom is God’s and He has all of the power to accomplish His purposes regardless of our input and the glory belongs to Him alone forever. Amen
Living in this world today as a follower of Jesus is not easy at all. That is why we have to take this prayer into our hearts as a “model” of how we should pray every day. Live your life as if it is the last day that you have. Tell others about your Savior and what He has done for you because everything that you have comes from Him. Your job, your family, your home, your car or truck was given to you by Him because He gave you the talent and the ability to be able to afford them and take care of the responsibility of having them.
God loves you and me and all of mankind but He isn’t very happy with the way we have used and abused the world that He gave us to be the stewards of. He isn’t happy about the way that we treat each other either. So, one day soon He is going to come back and take His followers home and then He is going to teach the whole world exactly Who He is. I pray that you will learn that lesson before that happens.
For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, And mightest overcome when thou art judged. Romans 3:3-4 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/rom.3.3-4.KJV
Have you ever wondered about the truth of God’s Word? It seems that many people today are doubting that it is true, especially anything that has to do with Jesus or salvation. My point is that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the very end, yet people are still trying to disprove it by denying that parts of it are true. If any part of it was shown to be false then none of it is true but in over two thousand years not one part of it has been proven to be false. In fact, archaeology has proven the exact opposite. The places and people mentioned in Scripture are real and their existence has been proven by historians outside the Bible and the events and places have been found by researchers.
The truth of God’s Word cannot be denied and soon the whole world will see that, but many will still not believe it. Jesus came to fulfill the prophecies of the Old Testament prophets and He did fulfill them all, but that wasn’t the only reason for His coming. He came to bring the possibility of salvation to a world that is still rejecting Him and His Father.
The times that we are living in are not easy with everything that is going on every day. God is still in control whether you believe it or not and He moves things and people as He wishes. His will and purposes will be done and everyone will see Him one day. Seek Him for your salvation soon if you do not know Him yet. I pray that you will come to know Him as I do.
Many of us would ask, “Why should I?”. Life is hard, we are having problems every day. Health problems, financial problems, relationship problems, national and international problems…all of these are happening every day, everywhere, so why should we praise God? Because God is still in control and He gives us the strength and the ability to get through all of these days.
God never promised that we would not have problems but He did promise that He would be with us going through every problem whatever they might be. All of us have had sad days and depressing days, but God is beside us as we walk with Him. If you are an unbeliever, just ask Him to come into your life and help you with the problems that you have. He won’t take the problems away but He will give you the strength and the ability to get through them.
The Bible says that “God inhabits the praise of His people“. When we praise God in prayer or in worship or song, He is very attentive to every word that we are saying. God loves you and cares for you far more than you can imagine. Giving your life and your heart to Jesus will not take the troubles away but it will give you the strength of Jesus and His Holy Spirit to get through whatever comes against you!
Christians don’t get a pass on trouble. Jesus told His disciples that they would have trouble in this world but He said, “Be of good cheer, I have overcome the world“. Give your heart to Jesus and ask Him to give you the strength for today and then ask the same for tomorrow. Walk with Him every day and the troubles that come won’t be so troublesome. He will get you through each day when you depend on Him.
