I’m not sure which is worse: the fact that world events are following what is written in the prophecies of the Bible, or the fact that Christians are ignoring this – the very people who should be wide awake and preparing for what’s coming. It’s bad enough that terrible times are barreling down on us, but the fact that we’re asleep to what is happening… well, it’s driving some of us crazy.
Your false assumptions and your false prophets are NOT going to save you from what is coming. You are NOT going to be rescued in a secret rapture before the ‘bad stuff’ happens. You are NOT going to be safe because you believe all the ‘bad stuff’ happened two thousand years ago. You are NOT going to be safe because you’ve ‘spiritualized’ the bad prophecies. You are NOT going to survive because you’ve decided that you are in The Millennium and ‘ruling and reigning’.
None of that is going to save you.
Andy Williams wrote an interesting book.
His answer: You lie to them.
That’s right. You lie to them. And, you convince them to lie to themselves and each other.
(The subtitle to the book is: Why the Truth Matters More Than You Think.)
The lies that we believe and tell each other are shocking and endless. And, if you continue to believe them, you and the people that you care about are going to die – badly. And yes, the lies are shocking because they’ve touched every part of our lives and lulled us into a false sense of security. We think that everything will be fine because everything IS fine, and HAS been fine in the past.
Worse, our pastors are telling us that there is nothing to worry about, that the future is like today, only more so.
The Nazis killed more than 11 million people before they were destroyed, and they used lies to do it. Today, a nightmare hundreds of times worse lies at our doorstep. Billions of people will die because we lied to them, and they lied to themselves.
I’m ranting about this because I can’t find ANYONE who is prepared to accept Zechariah 13:8 as it was written, in the context in which it was written. Everyone explains it away. Everyone.
Unfortunately, up until a few weeks ago, that also included me.
Are you ready for this?
