End Times in a Nutshell
So… the end of this age also known as “the end times” is rapidly approaching. Although no one knows the day or the hour we can know the signs of the times. Depending on when you read this, you’re in it. It’s happening and the rise of the “Antichrist” is right around the corner, within months to a few years as of this typing in February, 2015.
Why does this matter to you? Well most of the population of the earth will die. The Antichrist will force you to convert to Islam or kill you. You will also be forced to receive the mark of the beast whereas you can not buy or sell and by doing so you seal yourself instantly and permanently to an eternity in tortuous hell.
Speaking of hell, the past several decades has made a mockery of hell. They do this probably because Hell is so inconceivably bad that they don’t even want to think about it. Don’t look towards cartoons for impressions of Hell or nonsense from seeker sensitive preachers as simple a “place devoid from the presence of God”. But think of it this way: you enter a daily cycle where you feel the sensation of your flesh being burned off of your bones.
You can sense in your soul that something is going on. Can’t you sense that the world is being stirred up to something cataclysmic? It’s as if it’s being forced. Countries do not have an option. They will play out their parts in the ultimate end times drama.
Question: Do you read the Bible at all? Whew… You better. You better start today and not stop. Why? In regards and times we are filling prophecy right now and you’re missing it! Secondly you’re in big eternal trouble if you don’t get In line with what the Bible says about getting into heaven.
Really don’t get too upset. It’s not all your fault. We’ve been conned every which way with brilliant lie after lie after lie. But the Bible never went away. God never went away. We humans just got conned. But unfortunately, unless we scramble, we’re going to miss out. Unless you’ve dealt directly with God your Maker to get right with Him, you’re in trouble. And i’m not talking about the umpteen human made up variations of God through umpteen “religions” floating around the planet. I’m talking about your Maker, the One that made you. The one that has been quietly calling you to turn to Him all of these years. The one you’ve been tuning out because maybe you were scared, scared to soften up and become vulnerable to the Lord, your Maker. But fear not. You can do this today.
Get on your knees now and with a completely serious attitude pray to God your maker directly. Appologieze for ignoring Him and apologize for your sins, everything you’ve done wrong in life. Ask Him to forgive you and to help you completely turn to Him and follow Him. Ask Him if you can become one of His children, born into His Heavenly family. Ask Him to show you Jesus, to show you Jesus is real, the real Son of God who came to earth, died for your sins as a covering for you and rose from the dead. Once God the Father grants this to you, you will have the ability to believe in Jesus. Once you believe in Jesus with your heart and confessing that he is the Lord, your God, you will be born again.
Get after this now. The consequences of not being born again are terrible. Burning in hell, as in your are on fire, devastatingly tortured over and over is a very real thing. You’ve probably been lied to since most have downplayed hell for decades. How foolish.
And on that note I’m not talking about or promoting any denomination or religious group whatsoever. There should not be any denominations or sub-sects for the followers of Christ. For we have one teacher and that is the Christ. Who we have one Father who is God the Father in heaven. “Don’t let anyone call you ‘Rabbi,’ for you have only one teacher, and all of you are equal as brothers and sisters.d 9And don’t address anyone here on earth as ‘Father,’ for only God in heaven is your spiritual Father. 10And don’t let anyone call you ‘Teacher,’ for you have only one teacher, the Messiah. Matthew 23:8-11 Get to know your ENTIRE Bible and repent of your denominational segregation!
Once you get to know the Bible you’ll be shocked that most religions, priests, pastors, the media, Friends and family have lied to you, on purpose or unknowingly, or have spoken ignorantly to you about who God is, what He wants, how life works, How to get right with God and how to get into heaven.
The Way to get into heaven is NARROW! It really is no matter how we think things should be never forget that you didn’t make God, God made you. We are his creation and he gets to make the rules, call the shots – not us! So if we are smart we’ll get to know what God says and what He wants. Are you more powerful than God? Right, Of course not. So it’s time to let go of all the nonsense people that told us and find out from God himself what we’re supposed to do in order for things to go well now and for eternity. Frankly, we are lucky he’s giving us a I chance to be with him in heaven. Some “entitled” People think heaven is there right–that’s ridiculous to think that way. We are super lucky that we have a chance to be in heaven with God maker.
What is this narrow way? Well people don’t get it because they don’t know God. They don’t know God because they haven’t read the Bible over and over like I have and others have. Eternally is clearly spelled out to us by Jesus: “Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” John 17:3
I don’t know why people have gotten so confused over the years and I do know why people laugh got so confused over the years at the same time. Jesus clearly spells out how to get into heaven. He talks about you bearing fruit and being a fruitful harvest over and over. And what is this fruit? It’s love! It’s a love relationship with your Maker! God your Maker once and intimate, awesome relationship with you. He wants to be liked, honored, respected, thanked, pursued and generally loved for Who He is by you. He has given us an opportunity to enter an awesome relationship with Him and He promises an incredible afterlife with those who love him through the hardships and tests Earth. So if you get love God cutting through all the distractions of Earth that means you really like Him and you really love Him so he wants you around Him for eternity! And that’s how you get into heaven!!
I still don’t understand why most of the world is so clueless on this. Most of the religions of the world teach that you have to do good works whereas you’re good works out way or bad and then you’re into heaven. Think about it. Why would God want you around him in heaven give you don’t even know Him, Like Him, respect Him, or excited about Him or obey Him? If you didn’t love, like, respect me and obey me if I was in charge I certainly wouldn’t want you around me for an eternity!! I’m sure you would feel the same. Why would you want someone around you for an eternity doesn’t care about you? You wouldn’t. So now you’re starting to understand how the whole Bible works in a nutshell. Don’t worry we’ll have tons of articles explaining to you how life and eternal life works so you can get saved, Get into heaven and avoid the rapidly approaching disaster which will make it harder and harder for you to get into heaven.
But since this article is about the end times… Let’s get back to topic. Here’s what’s going on:
- We have 6000 years of humanity since Adam roughly, approximately, Depending on what calendar you use and depending on an exact count from Adam to present. Just as good day to the Lord as it is 1000 years to us “But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.” Peter 3:8 The last thousand years will be like a Sabbath and will start when Jesus returns.
- We are about to head to 6000 year mark. But before Jesus comes back Satan gets his chance to pretend to be God. This happens over a seven-year period calledl the tribulation. There will be three and a half years reign of the AntiChrist and then he will set himself up in the temple in Jerusalem and declare himself God – the “abomination that causes desolation”.
- The end times battle deals with the new age where Satan and his followers are thrown into hell and Jesus comes to reign on the earth with the Saints for 1000 years. Then a new heaven and a new earth, New Jerusalem Will come down out of heaven from God. “And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” 5 Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.” 6 And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. 7 He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. 8 But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” Rev 21: 3:8
- The end times in my opinion has two principal purposes: 1. to transfer the direct reign of God over man on earth through the millennial reign then through life on the new heaven and new earth where God will dwell with man. 2. To show us that God’s ways win, and we win when we submit to God and follow his instructions and his ways vs. of us trying to make our own ways. This will be ultimately represented in the battle between Isaac vs. Ishmael – God’s for ordained way vs. man’s way – God’s Word vs. man’s desired version of God’s word.
- The two witnesses and angels of the Lord will proclaim the Gospel to the ends of the earth so everyone will get a chance to turn their hearts towards their Maker, their Creator, the actual God and believe in Jesus the Son of God, God as the Son. The witnesses and the angels will warn inhabitants of the earth also not to get the mark of the beast or else if you do it’s automatic eternal damnation burning in a torturous hell. (this will require much faith because you will not be able to buy or sell during that time.) See more here. But what’s even more challenging Will be that the man of sin may come after you to chop your head off if you are caught and you don’t give up your belief in Jesus and turn to his religion that has been crafted for centuries for this very moment. Can you guess what this religion will be?
- Terrible plagues will strike the Earth and at least one third of the earth will die
… more to come… Pray to God your maker, not some ‘god’ or ‘god’ of your religion, your Maker, the One that has been trying to get your attentions for all of these years and ask Him to save you, to let you into Heaven, to become one of His children and to show you Jesus, show you that Jesus is real. The earth is now filled with tricks, actual bitter demons running around chatting in your ear. Things that cause confusion have been allowed to increase as we go towards the end of this age. It is SO easy to get tricked. But understand, you get tricked on the EMOTIONAL level. Use your brain, logic and your gut, soul. Calm your emotions down so you can listen to your brain and your soul. Then go get right with God.
I’ll give you the “spoiler” to the journey story: to be born again you will have cried out to God, your Maker, with a child like, genuine, desperate, “I give up I need you” cry, like a child to his daddy or mommy, and you’ll cry out for help. If you are sincere, since you called upon the name of the Lord, He can then show you, enable you to see and believe Jesus, that Jesus is the Son of God and is God. (Because you can’t actually believe in Jesus on your own – you need the ability to be given to you.).
Then furiously start reading the Bible over and over and over. Ask Jesus your questions, He is your Teacher. Time is short. Make a note of all the Bible, particularly the New Testament tells you to do and start making a habit out of doing, obeying. Pray daily, several times a day and intermittently all throughout the day eventually. LISTEN the the Lord personally. And you will do well! And I tell you this for your sake to have an AWESOME future and gain a lot of rewards, eternal wealth. Get to it. Don’t listen to the tricks. These days you don’t want to really listen to many at all due to the times. Just tune in to Jesus, Jesus personally, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace and you’ll do great!
