For anyone to not believe evil influences are gaining ground, it only took a “virus” to shut down America almost overnight; get most of the population into face masks; shelter in place (homebound); set up safe distancing; and numerous other events we have never seen the likes of.
All safe-distancing went out the window for the rioters. All of a sudden, Covid is on the back burner. To not see that the warnings by Jesus in Matthew 24, and Paul in 2 Timothy 3, is to turn a blind eye to the word of God. He is not surprised by anything that is happening, as the bible specifically tells us what the time just before the end of this age will be like.
Israel is exactly where it was said they would be. They’re prosperous, have a powerful military, people are making “Aliyah” in record numbers (returning to Israel), and the majority (over 95%) do not accept Jesus as their Messiah. The Messianic Jews try to get the word about Yeshua (Jesus) to their people, but are ignored. They are the “watchpersons” that are trying to follow Ezekiel 33:7, but are mostly ignored. God said if someone tries to warn others about His word, and the others reject that warning, the watchperson would not be held responsible for the others disbelief. It falls squarely on those who scoffed at the warning.
Romans 11:25 is about to happen. The time of the Gentiles is about to reach the fullness, and afterwards God will turn His attention to the Jews disobedience. (Romans 11:31) They will go through a most horrifying 7-years ever. Zechariah 13 tells us 2/3 of their population will perish. Those who were Messianic – true believers – will be Raptured with all other believers from all over the world.
Sounds like a huge number of people will be taken. However, sad to say that today only approximately 10% – 12% of the world population falls into the true believer category. For the Messianics, it’s only about 1% – 2%.
Most of those who will be left behind will not be able to say they never heard about Jesus, God, Salvation, Repentance or any of the Bible’s specific prophecies. The notifications were there, but they chose to disbelieve them.
As a watchman, I encourage you to please read John 3:16-18; Romans 8:1; Romans 5:8; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Acts 2:21 and Romans 10:9-13. Also look at Ephesians 2:8-9. In 1 John 2 through 5, you can learn about the false prophets and antichrists that have been with us all along, and told they will increase toward the end of this age. Daniel and Revelation tells of the horrors that the ultimate antichrist and false prophet will be responsible for.
You can be assured you will not go into the wrath/tribulation by receiving and accepting Jesus as your Savior. He will not force anyone to come to Him; but all who do call on Him will be saved. Time is becoming a major factor. We are definitely near the end of this age, and the next event, as given previously, is the Rapture.
We are at the time where Jesus, Paul, John and others said we would be, just before the end of this era. The next prophetic event to take place will be the Rapture, which removes all true believers from the coming wrath. (1 Corinthians 15:51-53; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; 1 Thessalonians 1:10; and 1 Thessalonians 5:9-10)
