Perilous times

In the midst of the many televised horrific crimes that have been and will be perpetrated & turned into media circuses I wanted to briefly remind my fellow Christians that such things are not new but in fact quite old.

See: 2 Timothy 3:1-9

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.  2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,  3 without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,  4 traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;  5 having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.  6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,  7 ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.  8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.  9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.”

Sinful mankind is always capable of producing the worst horrors & blood shed towards Believers & unbelievers. Their unholy activities were recorded for all to read in the Holy Bible. Revelations 6:1-17 gives us further clues on the madness that grips not only America but the world.

“And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.  2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.”

“3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.  4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.”

“5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.  6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.”

“7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.  8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.”

“9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:  10 and they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?  11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.”

“12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;  13 and the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.  14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.  15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;  16 and said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:  17 for the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”

While these murderous actions are disturbing it is a sign unto us that satan and his minions are failing to stop Christianity to spread the teachings of Jesus to the world. Through the many present and future school shootings / workplace shootings, islamic attacks and more… it is Jesus who told us that we should not be afraid of the terror of violence that is broadcasted on the nightly news.

See: Matthew 10:28 ” And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”

We as Christians, and the friends, family, children, husbands and wives of unbelievers need to strengthen those around us not to be afraid but to work as hard as we can to convince those around us to come to Jesus and get saved before worse darkness arrives in the future.

AMEN COME LORD JESUS! PUNISH satan and his followers!
