THE SIGNS OF HIS COMING!
Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?" Matthew 24:3
Jesus proceeded to tell them what the signs of His coming would be, the first would be deception! He said that many would come in His name saying that He was indeed the Christ and would deceive many. In other words they would acknowledge Him as Messiah but would deceive people with false doctrines and the traditions of men!
There are literally thousands upon thousands who have deceived the multitudes with a perverted gospel. Evangelical preachers, even Spirit filled with good intentions have preached a false gospel of salvation! The "Sinner's prayer" is one of the most seductive and dangerous doctrines ever preached to the lost. To mutter a little prayer to be saved from eternal damnation without the other components that accompany salvation is a different gospel than what Jesus preached.
Nowhere in the New Testament do you see anyone leading anyone in a prayer to be saved! They preached that a man must repent and become born again and follow Jesus, not just pray a prayer and get your ticket punched! The "Sinner's prayer" was developed from Romans 10:9 that if you confess Jesus as Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you will be saved. The main point that is missed is the fact that you are making Jesus your Lord and Master!
I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. Galatians 1:6-8
MANY WILL BE OFFENDED
"And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another." Matthew 24:10
It seems today that everyone is offended by something with the "Cancel Culture" dominating corporate America, Hollywood and social media! Anything they don't like or call racist is to be removed immediately so that their agenda of fear mongering can continue!
The underlying motive to this seemingly childish act is to ultimately destroy free speech! With free speech out of the way, the Bible will be deemed an offensive and racist book that will have to be canceled! Once it is on their radar screen Amazon and all the other retailers will drop it like a hot potato! Thus social justice will be carried out!
Without the scripture, false prophets will move in to deceive the multitudes with poisonous doctrines of men and demons! This nonsense seems to be unbelievable but look what has happened in the last couple of months with a new administration of devils running our government!
"Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many." Matthew 24:11
LAWLESSNESS WILL ABOUND
"And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold." Matthew 24:12
Who would believe that multiple American cities would allow rioters to rob, kill and destroy in their cities, their businesses and be allowed to continue unabated! Even if someone was arrested they were quickly let out and encouraged to continue even by your present VP!
Defund the police was promoted by the leaders of these cities while rioters torched their towns and destroyed their livelihoods! Unprecedented lunacy is prevailing in America by democrat mayors and city council members who don't have sense enough to come out of the rain! George Floyd, a convicted felon died of a drug overdose while the officer who was trying to restrain him was arrested for murder. "Black Lives Matter" then made Floyd a national hero and paid his family millions!
Crime and murder are on the rise and lawlessness abounds with a senile President and a democrat mob of morons continues to wreck America! Free speech, the right to bear arms and many of the freedoms Americans once enjoyed are in danger of being eliminated! Murderers, rapists and convicted felons are being let out of prison and at the same time our borders are opened and millions of "Illegal Aliens" are allowed to come in without documentation or being tested for Covid and then let out to go wherever they please!
While these travesties of justice continue, we as believers are to stand firm, be about the ministry of preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ and await the King of all kings to come again and restore His Kingdom on the earth! May God have mercy!
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. Matthew 24:14
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
