We've had flooding of "biblical proportions" in Texas, along with the “biggest fire on record” in Los Angeles. Washington, Montana, and Oregon have been on fire for months and there have now been dozens or recent earthquakes in Idaho and Utah. In the meantime there are people in Myanmar trying to escape “ethnic cleansing”; and in N. Korea, Kim Jong Un keeps rattling his sabers and trying to pick a fight with the world. Over the weekend he caused a 6.3 earthquake by detonating a hydrogen bomb underground! This little lunatic clearly wants to start WWIII….
So, here’s the important thing: Scripture (specifically the Books of Daniel and Revelation, and various passages, such as the below) warn us that these things will happen. There’s nothing you can do about it except to pray and get yourself "right" with God! Hoarding food, water and weapons and moving into a cave somewhere (as some pastors suggest) isn’t going to save you. Nobody is guaranteed the next day. However, we ARE guaranteed eternal life with our Creator! (John 11:25, 5:24, 6:47; 17:6; 14:9; Matthew 7:23; Philippians 3:10–11; 1 John 5:11–12; Revelation 22:1–2; etc.)
The bottom line is: The world is in the shape it’s in BECAUSE our of failure to live according to YHWH’s Divine Instructions! Scripture foretold all this, and it is now happening.
Matthew 24: 3. And while Y’shua was sitting on the Mount of Olives, his disciples drew near and were saying among themselves and to him, “Tell us when these things will be and what is the sign of your coming and the end of the world.”
4. Y’shua answered and said to them, Beware, let no man deceive you. 5. For many will come in my name and will say that “I am the Mashiyach.” And many they will deceive. 6. For you are bound to hear of revolutions and rumor of wars. Watch out and do not be disturbed, for it is necessary that all these things happen, but it is not yet the end.
7. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines and plagues and earthquakes in different places. 8. But all these things are only the beginning of sorrows. 9. Then they will deliver to afflictions and they will kill you and you will be hated by all nations because of my name.
10. Then many will stumble and will hate one another and will betray one another. 11. And many false prophets will arise and deceive many. 12. And because of the growth of iniquity, the love of many will grow cold. 13. But whoever has patience until the end, he will have life. 14. And this Good News of the Kingdom will be preached in all the world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come…. (AENT)
