I like hour glasses, watching the sand slip through. But is time running out? Chronologically speaking we are in the last of the church ages. Jesus promised to be with us until the end of the age, or for His Spirit to be and we will of course be, as believers with Him for eternity.
The doomsday clock has been moved up from five minutes until midnight to a little closer. What people are expecting is anyone’s guess. The zombie apocalypse, alien abductions, nuclear war, global warming, just extinction. Time is running out alright. But not for these things, time will run out for the church age, and the time of the Great Tribulation will happen.
It may include some the aforementioned in a spiritual and physical way as well. Though some believe the church goes through this I do not. I believe in a Rapture of the church, or catching away. People will waste time arguing that when souls are stake. Deception is at work in the world and I’m sorry to say in the church.
Being a believer in Christ, His blood shed for you, accepting His salvation is all that saves you for eternity. There is grace but people abuse that and sin right on. There are people being entertained by walking dead when they, themselves are walking dead without Christ.
It does not matter your marital status age or wealth. You have to make the decision to believe in Christ or not. No one can make it for you, and He is coming for His own, and then when the man of sin is revealed, the Anti Chirst. there will be a false peace, wars, demons unleashed, violence, death, destruction like never before, people will pray to die and cannot. And if you ever receive that mark, you will be doomed to an eternal hell.
People are very willing to believe in aliens, zombies, even a guy in a red suit. But do they believe in a God who loved so much that He would by His Spirit place a child into the womb of a virgin, whose bloodline was pure because of sacrifices past that God honored, that she would give birth to Jesus, and God would allow Him to be crucified, go into hell and retrieve the keys of death, hell and the grave, so that we would have the chance to believe, that He would have His literal flesh torn, so that we could by receiving His Spirit at salvation go to God in prayer.
Such love is unimaginable in a way, would any of us give up or child to save undeserving people, God did. Is time running out? Yes, it is. God sent Jesus at the right time and will send Him again gather believers before this terrible time comes. Will you receive Him as Lord or enter such a time of chaos as never seen before.
I had a friend who had to evacuate the fire in Australia, I have talked to people in California, one woman’s daughter lost her house. A pastor prayed about stopping the enemy from devouring her state. With so much going on in the world and turmoil on every side, isn’t it better to have a peace that He is Lord and we are safe in Him.
Some people believe that having a hope in a Pre Tribulation Rapture is silly, a sort of cop out, but it is there in 1 Thessalonians 4:17. Jesus revealed it to Paul, and the book of Revelation to John. Someone did not make it up in the 1800’s. The Great Tribulation has not taken place not already.
Please don’t think there will be plenty of time to repent. He could come at any time, and when you least expect it. He left clues, He could come at a time of the fall feasts or at any time, we are nearing Purim, when Haman tried to destroy the Jews and look what is going on in the world now. It will soon be Passover and Pentecost.
The world will still hear about Christ but the two witness will die in the streets, Jews will try to offer sacrifices but it will be stopped, the only one who can stop the pure evil is Jesus Christ. Do you know Him?
This post is not to frighten anyone but to give you hope in a lost and dying world for a better one to come, and you may not even see death should He come soon. Is time running out, yes. But time will never run out because there is eternity, it is just how you choose to spend it or I should say where.
Time is running out for people to choose Jesus or reject Him. In heaven we will need no time, and the seven years of the Great Tribulation equals the marriage Supper of the Lamb. Jewish weddings lasted seven days. How God keeps time as far as the weeks and years, I am not smart enough to calculate, if a day is a thousand years with Him, I just choose to believe in His love. And to let Him make it beautiful in His time.
