Christians As We Enter The End Times Do Not Be Deceived By False Prophets

Many do not believe we are living in the end times and believe the world will go on forever. Jesus tells us in Matthew 24:3 – 5 – “ As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. “

Jesus tells us there will be signs and then gives the signs. Did Jesus say that knowing no one would look for the signs and recognized them when they came? In the early church there were a number of false teachers and many rejected God and that Jesus was the Son of God. In the Book of Jude, who many believe was the brother of James and the half brother of Jesus, wrote warning us what to expect is coming to Christians. Both Peter and Jude wrote to warn every Christian what to expect and to be prepared for this time.

Jude 5 – 6 – “Though you already know all this, I want to remind you that the Lord at one time delivered his people out of Egypt, but later destroyed those who did not believe. And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their proper dwelling—these he has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day.”

2 Peter 2:4 – 9 – “For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them in chains of darkness to be held for judgment; if he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others; if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly; and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the depraved conduct of the lawless (for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)—if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials and to hold the unrighteous for punishment on the day of judgment.”

They both wrote about false teachers and their false doctrines. Jude told Christians you must understand the message of God’s grace in order to reject false teaching. They will undermine the faith of believers. Is it possible someone will write a book telling us what is political correct and then say this will take the place of the Bible? Any Christian who is not politically correct is available for persecution and legally being sued.

Jude 17 – 23 – “But, dear friends, remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold. They said to you, “In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires.” These are the people who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit. But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life. Be merciful to those who doubt; save others by snatching them from the fire; to others show mercy, mixed with fear—hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.”

As we study Ezekiel we know that Gog and Magog with Iran and other Arab nations will attack Israel. Ezekiel 38:4 – 9 – “I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army—your horses, your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing their swords. Persia, Cush and Put will be with them, all with shields and helmets, also Gomer with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah from the far north with all its troops—the many nations with you.
“‘Get ready; be prepared, you and all the hordes gathered about you, and take command of them. After many days you will be called to arms. In future years you will invade a land that has recovered from war, whose people were gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate. They had been brought out from the nations, and now all of them live in safety. You and all your troops and the many nations with you will go up, advancing like a storm; you will be like a cloud covering the land. I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army—your horses, your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing their swords. Persia, Cush and Put will be with them, all with shields and helmets, also Gomer with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah from the far north with all its troops—the many nations with you.'”

Some believe widespread atheism and secularism will change overnight in the Jewish world in light of the supernatural protection of Israel. We shall also see an unprecedented resurgence of religious expression among Israelis and among Jews worldwide. Many Jews will become united around rebuilding the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. Isaiah 2:2 – “In the last days the mountain of the LORD’s temple will be established as chief among the mountains; it will be raised above the hills and all nations will stream to it.” Daniel, Micah, Paul, John and Christ confirm this. Security experts now believe that the Temple Mount is the most dangerous square mile on the planet.

We have false teachers in our universities, we have politician involved in cult worship, and we have religious leaders who are spreading a gospel different from the Bible. We have anarchy in our streets with mobs calling for the killing of police. We have teen gangs rioting and looting.

The forth blood moon falling on a religious holiday will occur on September 28, 2015 according to NASA, as a sign stating something spectacular will happen. Joel 2:31 – “The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.”
Are we seeing signs of the end time and the end of the Church Age?

    Thank you for writing this. For many Christians, it is “business as usual.” I too believe we are the last generation to see our Lord return in the clouds. Jesus is returning soon. I also believe American Christians will soon suffer physical persecution on an unprecedented scale like our brothers and sisters are in the rest of the world. Sadly to say, most are not prepared to suffer with joy for Jesus. I believe America will soon suffer a complete financial collapse. As a nation, we continue to mock God Almighty. If our U.S. Supreme Court judges doesn’t uphold marriage between one man and one woman only, woe be to us as a nation. No nation in all of history has survived insulting God Almighty on this issue, and we are no different. Fervent prayer and our nation repenting of our sins before God Almighty is our only hope.

    In Christ,
