As we face another day full of talk about natural disasters, the years-long feeling of doom about the earth's future lay heavy upon my heart - for what we are seeing today is truly a precursor of what’s going to happen around the world as Scripture continues to unfold before our eyes. (And I'm not talking about what today's false "prophet's are "prophesying" or about people's dreams or visions; but what SCRIPTURE actually says.)
Take a look at what's happening on the Irma-decimated Island of St. Martens where troops have now been called in to stop the looting. The entire island is devoid of infrastructure, and while good people are busy just trying to survive, violent looters armed with guns and machetes are stealing their food, water and meds. In other words, we’re beginning to really get an idea of how the carnal nature works!
Similar thing is happening in Florida. Take a look. Humanity at its worst!
This is a precursor of what’s ahead, folks! This is why I keep harping on “getting yourself right with God,” because that and praying are the ONLY things we’ll be able to do in a world filled with evil. Hoarding food and water and arming yourself to the teeth and moving out into the wilderness (as many "conspiracy theorists" are teaching) is NOT going to save you when endless disasters hit. You don’t know whether or not you’re going to survive, and you certainly can’t stop a horde of looters with evil intent from robbing you blind and killing you on the spot.
And you can only hope and pray that “the government” that many sit around to bash constantly, will be able to stop the North Korean missiles that may be lopped at the US by a crazed, fame and glory-seeking dictator. When everything happens at once and governments run out of money and there aren’t enough “first responders” or policemen to deal with all the disasters and the looters, you will be on your own! So, yes, do collect bottled water and some non-perishables for such times, but use some common sense and don't go hog-wild because some "prophet" tells you what to do and where to go. NO place on earth is going to be safe! The ONLY "safe place" is knowing that, whatever happens, YHWH has assured His people eternal life....
There won’t be any “lukewarm” or unbelievers in Heaven! (Revelation 3:16) If you’re an unbeliever, send me an email so we can discuss world events and how they line up with Scripture. If you’re lukewarm, clinging to your religion or religiosity, please stop it and start reading the Bible in earnest, from cover to cover so you can finally learn how to please your Creator. YHWH is not kidding around. He never did. He destroyed the earth by flood because of the very same thing that’s happening today. This time, it will be by fire!
2 Peter 3:10. And the day of Master YHWH will come like a thief; in which the heavens will suddenly pass away; and the elements, being ignited, will be dissolved; and the earth and the works in it will not be found. 11. As therefore all these things are to be dissolved, what persons should you be, in Set Apart conduct and in the Fear of Elohim, 12. expecting and desiring the coming of the day of Elohim in which the heavens being tried by fire will be dissolved and the elements being ignited will melt? 13. But we, according to his promise, expect new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. 14. Therefore, my beloved, as you expect these things, strive that you may be found by him in peace, without spot and without blemish. (AENT)
Please read Isaiah 24 if you truly think your “religiosity” and preferred “religion” are pleasing to YHWH. Here is just one passage:
Isaiah 24: 1 Look! ADONAI is stripping and destroying the land, turning it upside down and scattering its inhabitants 2 cohen and commoner, slave and master, maid and mistress, buyer and seller, lender and borrower, creditor and debtor. 3 The land will be completely stripped, completely plundered, for ADONAI has spoken this word.
4 The land fades and withers, the world wilts and withers, the exalted of the land languish. 5 The land lies defiled under its inhabitants; because they have transgressed the teachings, changed the law and broken the everlasting covenant. 6 Therefore a curse is devouring the land, and its inhabitants are punished for their guilt. It is why those living there waste away, and the people left are few. (CJB)
