All our lives we have lived in a world where ‘there is some good in the worst of us and some bad in the best of us”
As the time of the end approaches the pressure to make a decision for or against God and the Gospel will increase.
The stakes will be very high….. the Word says that “no man might buy or sell , except he that has the mark”….. millions will take the mark gladly….. millions more will take the mark sadly because they know the truth but fear the alternative consequences….. only a small number of people will be totally loyal to God and abandon themselves to whatever is His will by refusing to compromise.
the ‘middle ground’ of ‘persons sitting on the fence’ (undecided) will rapidly disappear and complete polarization will ensue….. either ‘for’ or ‘against’ God.
Even though persons receiving the mark will have some temporal advantage in having access to food, housing or health care…. it will be short lived …… because they will soon find that taking the mark was no escape from misery, as Revelation tells us plainly in Revelation 16:2 ‘there fell a foul and painful sore upon the men who had the mark of the beast” and subsequent events will serve to permanently and completely ruin their ‘comfortable’ lives….. in fact, Revelation 9:6 tells us ” in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.”
So completely evil will be the inhabitants of earth by this time that the nations will unite to make war against Christ and the army of God….. Revelation 19:19 tells us “the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him that sat on the horse, and against His army”
I can just see the headlines in newspapers all across the world….. ‘All nations united to fight the Alien Invasion of our planet’
Imagine the folly of it all…..
Nations of the world REFUSE to believe the TRUTH of the ‘Great God and Creator of the Universe’ …… and instead prefer to believe that ‘extraterrestrials’ are invading our planet.
The outcome is certain and the conclusion of the matter already documented…… no amount of ‘technology’, sophisticated weaponry or human courage or pride can defeat the Creator of the entire Material Universe….. so the beast is taken and the armies of the earth crushed …. Revelation 14:20 and Revelation 19:17 – 21 give us a glimpse of the CARNAGE and dead bodies on the surface of the earth after the battle.
will there be anybody left on earth at all after this battle of man against God ?
Ezekiel 39:12 tells us about what happens afterwards…..
You see….. long before John ever wrote the Revelation….. or Jesus Christ ever walked the earth….. prophets like Daniel, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Joel and Zechariah had been given glimpses of the future…… each one was a little different, but taken together we can be very certain how history is going to play out.
The question today is ……. what is the state of your heart before an AWESOME and HOLY GOD ? …… surely you owe it to yourself, in light of recent world events, to consider the overwhelming evidence that the Bible does, in fact, predict the future of humanity….. how can you afford to ignore it ?
You need to be open minded enough to be willing to investigate the Bible ….. and you need to be observant enough to understand what is going on in today’s world from a Spiritual point of view…
Do not delay, respond now to the calling of Jesus Christ and let Him change your life and your destiny…. I assure you that you will not regret it.
