Trumpets blaring doom, gloom and judgments are increasing and with even more urgency than ever before by today’s modern prophets. Augusto Perrez, Reverend Jim Bakker, Pastor John Hagee and Past Jack Van Impe continually remind us of God’s impending wrath and judgment coming to both America and to whole world for the rampant sin and evil. They warn us that soon, if we do not repent, we will enter into the tribulation as prophesied in the Book of revelations.
The signs are all there and regardless of scoffers derision’s, God is calling his chosen people to prepare, much like Noah building an ark for his family and the animals, thus ushering in the beginning of the end of life on earth as we now know it.
Today, I asked the Lord why He would allow such a devastating catastrophe to happen to the beautiful world He created. I wondered in sorrow as I watched a you-tube video showing the movement of a massive meteorite in its orbital path similar to scenes in the film, Deep Impact. I mourned that the movie was a little too true to life and not as far-fetched as most movie-goers would believe. I wondered what would make God go so far as to allow earth to be completely ripped apart up by natural disasters. Immediately, the Lord brought to mind Romans 1:21
… They were not thankful and glorified him not as God.” Everyone, including those without TV and radio access are exposed to the magnificent and invisible attributes of creation, therefore they are without an excuse. Romans goes on to point out that women gave themselves over to that which was unnatural and men were burned with unbridled lusts for other men! Those who practiced such acts were worthy of death.
God was certainly intolerant of certain things and the book of Romans Chapter 1 gives a clear description of the actions attributes that would pervade most of society in the latter days right before His judgments. It looks to me, man has not evolved, but devolved in light of all his amazing technology, science and medical advances.
Idolatry was rampant during the old testament where the barbaric nations worshiped idols of stone, silver, wood and the stars rather than the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob. Globally, technology seems to have replaced the tangible statues and figurines of ancient times, from the five- year-old riding her bicycle with a cellphone in her other hand to adults playing Facebook games for hours on end.
Gone are the days when youngsters would marvel at the living creatures inhabiting the neighborhood pond and woods and spending much of their daylight hours outdoors. Nowadays, the seats are all occupied in the children section of the library. Kids are fighting gladiator “Terminators” and “Predators” on their computers.
An article was recently published in a Philadelphia magazine, “The Dumbing Down of our Kids.” Indeed our youth are becoming brain-dead socially and spiritually and are sorely lacking all the social and creative skills their parents were so endowed with.
With the alarming rise in crime, theft and traffic safety, much of society has lost their ability to discern with their a spiritual compass.
We are still here, though, thank the Lord, but our time is running out. Woe to humanity. God’s cup is bubbling and seething violently, ready to overflow it into judgment and wrath. This brew has been violently boiling for ages and yet God has graciously looked away, hoping that man will turn away from his depravity.
Even secular Hollywood filmmakers are taking seriously the world’s impending destruction Deep Impact, Armageddon and the Book of Eli having huge box-office success. People flock to be shaken up and we should take heed for these depictions are not so far from reality. May the world be informed that there is a hope for the world, God’s spirit-filled, spirit-led people, the Bride of Christ. We are the power holding back the tsunami tides of evil utterly devouring what’s left of our once proud and glorious nation.
My brothers and sisters in Christ, let us wake up and show the world what God has blessed us with. Let the world see our good works of charity and compassion, unselfishness and generosity. We must be salt and light, opposing those things that are wrong, not turning a passive shoulder and accepting it. The old testament prophets said people called evil good and good evil.
Now is the acceptable time of salvation, Jesus Christ and His legacy of love. We have little time, my brethren before the trumpets blow and the death angels will come for their prey. Go out and make fishers of men. Share the Good News of Jesus Christ with the world before millions are swiftly swept up beneath the Tsunamis or blown up by volcanoes into the abyss of their eternal destiny!
