ARE YOU LIVING IN PREPARATION FOR MEETING CHRIST?

During Noah’s time, no one paid any attention to him and his sons building a huge ark. Why should they, it had never rained before. Noah kept ministering telling them they needed to change their ways and to worship God. They thought he was a prophet of doom and paid no attention. As a result the flood destroyed all humanity with the exception of eight people, Noah and his three sons and their wives.

Christians have warned others for years that there would be a day when Christ would come back for all of those who were His followers. The Bible continually tells us to be prepared for that day. Daniel 12:9 – 10 – “He replied, ‘Go your way, Daniel, because the words are rolled up and sealed until the time of the end. Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.’”

Why are we astonished that non-believers do not understand the signs of the end time? They said Christians have been telling us that for the past 2000 years. Scripture tells us that when the end time occurs it will fall on deaf ears as it did during Noah’s time. However, this time is different. The end times started the day Israel became a nation in 1948. God said when that happened He would gather Jews from all over the world to return and they have. With the development of nuclear armament and the Internet it is possible for the war that is predicted in Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39 and the establishment of a one-world government.

There are three beliefs that the church will be raptured, or will be taken to heaven before the seven years of Tribulation or 3½ years into the Tribulation or at the end of the Tribulation. The Tribulation is seven years when the Antichrist rules and those refusing to be compliant or be obedient and will not take the mark of the beast, will be decapitated. There has never been a time like it or will there ever be one again. It will end with the war of Armageddon that Christ wins. Then Christ will rule the earth for 1000 years. That is when everyone should want to be alive at that time. But only Christ’s followers will be permitted to live in a utopian world.

Most theologians believe Christ will rapture the church prior to the seven years of the Tribulation. Thus, I ask the question. Do you want to remain trying to make it through those seven terrible times? I Thessalonians 4:16 – 18 – “For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.”

Matthew 24:30 – 31 & 36 – “Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other. But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”

Most Americans may not realize what it will do to this country when more than 40 million Christians leave this world at one time. It probably won’t have much effect on China, Russia or the Middle East.

Daniel and other Scripture tell us in the end time there will be a one-world government and the Old Roman Empire or the European Union will become powerful and dominant. Many believe America will lose its super power status and its world’s leadership. This one-world government will be ruled by the Antichrist and there will be one religion lead by the False Prophet.

We have a group of elitists who have, for a number of years, a plan to develop the one-world government that will bring peace to the world and end all wars according to them. They believe they can turn the earth into a utopia. It will end all poverty, stop climate change and change all social and political ills. They realize for this to happen will require the loss of personal freedoms. The elitists believe they must change everyone to their way of thinking and acting. It will take this one world government and religion with law enforcement capable of forcing everyone to comply with their laws and regulations.

Isn’t it time for you to ask yourself: “Do you want to live under the Antichrist or live under the rule of Jesus Christ?” When Christ comes to put an end to the war of Armageddon and rule for 1000 years are you interested in being there? It is then time to prepare for that time. We are told to live a holy life that Christ showed us how to live. Do we have a relationship with Christ and God? Is living the world’s ways more important than living to please God? We have a short time to live on earth. What do we plan for the thousands of years in eternity? If you choose to live with Christ in eternity then isn’t it time to start preparing to live in order to be with Christ forever?
