As the date gets closer, when you see a major change in our lifestyles you should know what time it is.
The Parable of the fig tree Luke 21:29-33 NIV – 29 He told them this parable: “Look at the fig tree and all the trees. 30 When they sprout leaves, you can see for yourselves and know that summer is near. 31 Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near.
There was once a time when kids did not carry a gun to school, most people 40 + years old can remember those times, some younger people may not remember. Kids do carry guns to school today, and it’s happening more frequently today.
There was a time when elected officials would not tell a blatant lie because they had respect for the people who elected them. But that is not the case anymore, and we should know what time it is. There was also a time when most people were honest, but those days are gone also.
There was a time when young men did not let their pants hang down showing their underwear to the world. There was also a time when women did not have to reveal every curve on their bodies, nor did they have to cross their legs when they sat down.
There are lots of things we do today that we did not do in the past, that is called change, and there is no way to stop it. All of the stuff (good or bad) that is happening in the world today must take place, it was foretold long ago.
Jesus is not saying the old generation did not rear the new generation correctly, It does not matter much how they were brought up. Jesus is saying it is too late to start making new laws, rules, regulations and increasing the security forces. New laws, rules, regulations, and increasing the security forces cannot prevent these things from taking place, although it may help some people rest better.
It is time for each and every individual to start asking and demonstrating we truly want Jesus in our lives. Do not let the conditions the world is in today distract you from what you need to be doing. Do not wait until Jesus is ringing your doorbell before you decide to become a believer.
The stuff that is happening in the world today is some of the signs the end times are closer. There will not be a big announcement on the news or on social media proclaiming Jesus is nearby. You will only know Jesus is here when he is here.
Some people will say Jesus did not give us enough time to prepare for his coming, but he will not accept that excuse. If we wait until Jesus is at the door before we try to convert, we will actually be telling Jesus we did not believe what he said anyway, and Jesus does require us to believe him.
The point is Jesus has told us when we see major changes in our lifestyle the end is approaching. I have pointed out a few things we know have changed, and there are many other things that have major changes that I did not mention.
This is not the time to be concerned about what other people are doing to save their souls you should only be concerned about saving your soul. Do not think you have ample time to do it later. The problem with some of us is we wait until it is too late.
No one has to go to hell, if you go to hell, it will be your own choice. Matthew 7:13 NIV – 13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.
The above verse is stating a very large number of us will choose to go to hell instead of going to heaven. That is a sign that we have been deceived.
