END TIMES SERIES PART 1
We live in exciting and tumultuous times. The events and news cycle reports change daily, sometimes even faster. It’s often difficult to keep up with aspects that may or may not have an impact on our individual lives, particularly when we are attempting to make a living, engage our family members and juggle our work or career demands.
Getting caught up in the fast and furious pace of post-modern life makes not only the days fly by, it also keeps us focused on our efforts and energy to compete, excel and yes, even sometimes simply to survive until tomorrow arrives.
Whether we are familiar with any potential fallout from conflicts taking place on the opposite side of the planet or not, which seem a world away while having little or no effect on us, we need to be aware of their particular importance to our future health and wellbeing. Whether or not one agrees with the current administration’s decisions in the middle east region, specifically regarding the Syrian war, biblical prophesy alerts us to a reality that Syria plays a major role in “end times” events.
As a reader of novels, I developed an odd habit while in the Army. I would read the last page of the story first. Why? I can’t say. Call it a peculiarity. For this piece and series, I have chosen to share with readers the ‘last page’ first. In this way you will have the direction and answer to the ultimate question of the coming end times.
Here it is; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 and Romans 10:9-10, & 17.
When the prophesied events of the ‘last days’ unfold, the decision we each make will be dependent on our belief and commitment to this faith description.
Before we proceed let me reassure you, I am not trying to scare or frighten. That’s not the point of this series. I share this information solely so you and your family will be able to accept and understand the magnitude and significance of the events we may see in our lifetime and know how to respond. Second, I am not predicting any timetable for these things to occur. As part of bible prophesy, I can assure you they will in fact take place, but again, their timings are unknown. There are several indications that these 'end times' events have and are happening now and will happen continuously in the future building to a crescendo of enormity. As unbelievable as these events may appear, we can take heart that we are prepared.
Whether or not you believe any of the following is up to you. What you do with this information is also up to you. I offer it only as an attempt to serve both you, and the Lord God's spirit who guides believers.
Ultimately each of us will make a choice of consequence. Likewise, we will each know when that moment arrives for us to decide and declare where and with whom we will stand. As I mentioned above, we live in tumultuous times. Many people discount the bible in general and more specifically bible prophesy. But before you dismiss out of hand what I’m about to share with you consider this:
The entirety of the Bible is about Jesus Christ. That’s right, the focus of both the Old and New Testaments revolve around the person and spirit of Jesus of Nazareth; the Christ, the Messiah. The Old Testament is about his coming and relationship with humankind, the New Testament is about his role(s) and purpose(s) for his believers and followers.
So, what does all this have to do with you and your family? If you’re familiar with my writing you know my answer to the question, ‘Why are we here?’ is: to come to know (of) God, and then, come to know Him again through Jesus the Christ. But what does this have to do with ‘end times’ and how does it apply to us? God asks nothing of us, other than we decide. “Will we follow and walk a path that leads our spirit (and life) to Him? Or, will we choose to turn from Him and His offer of eternal life to follow and walk the world’s way?” For each of us this becomes our ultimate and final question to be answered.
Let me change gears for a moment. If you are a parent or grandparent the most important people in your life are your children and/or grandchildren, followed perhaps by friends, relatives and confidants. As such we may feel certain responsibilities for their safety and security. What if I shared information that could not only save them from terrible despair and danger, but will save them (and you) from eternal separation with the Holy Trinity of God?
Since the completion of my book “Breaking Free” my studies the last few years has been focused on ‘end times’ prophesies. Watching events unfold around the world has been a spark of realization that we are indeed in the described ‘end times.’ It’s easy to understand how and why many people miss or are unaware of the importance of events taking place right before our eyes, hidden in plain view. There are various reasons for this. For many, much of bible scripture is unknown, for multiple reasons too numerous to list. If you are one of these people, take heart. Although there are many places to learn or find this information, let me reassure you that this series is presented without condition or expectation.
I am not trying to convince or convert. I am not trying to make you believe or choose. My purpose is to serve. Serve you and your family and friends, so when you see these world events unfold in the coming years, you’ll remember what the answer you’re looking for is, and why. Remember the ‘last page’ links above? If you read no further and do nothing, please read and refer to these two scripture references when ‘that time’ comes.
Whether you believe me or not, believe this:
1 Corinthians 15:3-4 and Romans 10:9-10, & 17
