Is This End Time?

A lot of folks are wondering about all the things they see happening, Earthquakes, Volcanoes, Wars, and of course the Coronavirus. I have to admit that it is a scary time in which we live. I know a few Christian people who are wondering about all these things, and thinking that it is prophecy coming true.

We see this in the Gospel of Matthew, “Mat 24:3-7 ESV  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?”  (4)  And Jesus answered them, “See that no one leads you astray.  (5)  For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray.  (6)  And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet.  (7)  For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places.”

I know that there may very well be a terrible famine in North Africa after the Locusts millions of them, ate everything in site, stripped trees as well as crops. There are earthquakes daily, most are harmless, but there have been some 7.5 quakes this past year that did a lot of damage, and deaths as well. Wars, we definitely have our share of wars, we have been in Afghanistan almost 20 years. Of course these wars, we do see Turkey fighting against the Kurdish people, we hear Iran boasting they will destroy Israel.

Yet it is not any reason to believe that these are signs of the End of it all. They are indications that our world is getting closer to a time when China or Russia or both will begin wars against their neighbors and other nations will join in against them. Of course also, Russia is putting together a coalition in the middle east which may presage a bigger conflict there.

I do believe that things are going to get a whole lot worse, and one thing I know for certain, there is a coming conflagration, that will destroy the earth and millions of people will die before it is all over. I also do KNOW that there is a way to salvation, and it comes through Jesus Christ, he who died and was risen, in that death we can be saved from hell and live eternally in the presence of the God of creation. How do I know this you may ask. Here is the answer: “Joh 3:16-18 ESV  “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.  (17)  For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.  (18)  Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.”

So what do you think? Is it time for a reassessment of how you are living your life. The apostle Paul  wrote these words in his letter to the church in Rome.  “Rom 6:23  For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. ” The death he is talking about is an eternity in the Lake of Fire along with Satan and his followers. The choice is yours, eternal life in heaven, or eternal death in hellfire. God will not sentence you there, you will sentence yourself. “Whoever believes in Him, Christ is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already.” If you refuse the offer freely given by God as Paul said, it is a free gift, but you must confess your sins, repent of those sins and accept Jesus Christ as Lord of your life.

In life we make many choices, I ask you to make the choice that will guarantee you eternal life, saving you from the torment of eternal death in the Lake of Fire.
