No matter when Christ comes, as scriptures say no man will know except our Father, our lives need to be prepared and aligned in His purposes for us.
Scriptures also say Christ will return when we least expect Him, when things are peaceful, then He will come as a thief in the night.
The signs are indeed chaotic, but we do not go according to worldly means of judging. Our role is to be ready, spread the gospel, stand firm, and do not allow any person, any entity, any worldly event to sway us.
Mathew 24:4-14 ” Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, “I am the Christ, and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is Not Yet. For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.
But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. After all of these things come to pass, the great tribulation is upon us.”
Mathew 24:21 “such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.”
Mathew 24: 29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
24: 30 Then the son of Man will appear in heaven, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
Mathew 24: 43-44 “But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you DO NOT EXPECT.”
We have not even begun the end times for we will experience such great harshness in life we have never known. We here in America know nothing of any persecution or tribulation as the scriptures are speaking about.
Many people groups have not even heard the gospel, so much work to be done, many workers needed, many faithful needed who live in truth, who live in Christ to preach the authentic gospel of Christ.
We, God’s elect must stand firm, not be swayed by the false doctrines, the false teachers who are at work inside the church walls, deceiving many.
We will suffer more than anything we have ever known or experienced during the most horrific times during the tribulation (if we are alive), for this must come even before the end of time, and we still have it easy in America.
