Topic: End of the Age
As the Coronavirus is spreading over the world, people are starting to preparing for the worse. Look at the news, there are thousands of people already have effected and some of them already have died due to Coronavirus. Even though the news media said that they are helping us to prepare for the worst, their reports don't seem to be encouraging to us to overcome this global health issues. It's all negative reports and some are informative that could help us to avoid this disease.
Who we could turn to during the global crisis? Beginning Revelation 6 we see that Gods judgments would pour upon the earth. There are three sets of 7 judgments that the earth must go through before the millennium years would begin.
Revelation 6 predicted that there would be horsemen appear that would make many global crises throughout the earth. Read verse 8: "And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth." Is this verse sound familiar? We see that many people have suffered through violence, health issues, and food. Is this horseman talking about the current global pandemic crisis? I believe that our generation continues to see and experience the birth pain of God's wrath before there will be the global peace through Jesus Christ. The Bible also said that we, as believers in Christ, will rule the earth with Him.
So, what we can do now?
1) Rely and trust in Jesus. He is the answer to all of our problems. We have gone astray from God for a very long time. Now, we are suffering for it. Even though He didn't create Coronavirus for us to suffer, we put our trust in government and politic to face some consequences. If you are a bible student or student of the biblical prophecy, you will find out what the government is doing may not be beneficial to us.
2) Don't just hear the reports from the news medias. Even though we can find out what's going on the world now through the media source, they may not tell us the whole truth. Do we know why Donald Trump have received so many criticisms since he entered into the White House? Do we know why the previous president received several honors while he turned this nation upside down?
Americans decided to let God go and going with our desires. We decided to follow the system of this world and the darkness took over this nation. Morality has gone. Children cannot draw anything that is related to Christianity in the art classroom. Now, children are confused with their identities and let them to choose their own gender rather than accepting who they really are. Did God make mistake? If He is, why they are here? It is impossible that they can choose their own identity before coming out from mothers' wombs. God said in Jeremiah 1:5, "Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations." If we'd reject God as Creator, we are saying that we are gods; we don't have beginning and end. And come with another critical question: Who created us?
If we focus on Jesus, there is no weapon formed against us (Isaiah 54:17). Paul said in Romans 8:38-39, "For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
I believe that this Coronavirus is another awakening call from God, even though this disease was from the man. Every global event is leading us into the day of glory where we will see the returning of Jesus to judge this world and bring us back to rule the world with Him. In the meantime, time is ticking into the global national disasters, which it will lead into the final stage of World War III.
Are you ready when Jesus would return to take His people to His kingdom? Are you ready to face against the enemy with Him? We are in a war zone now. Even though all the nations are going crazy, we are in a spiritual battle that against the real enemy, Satan. This generation will end soon, but God is patiently waiting for you to be on a board with Him. He does not want to lose you forever.
Are you saved? Are your love ones and friends saved in the grace of God through Jesus Christ? As Jesus said, "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms, if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am." (John 14:1-3.)
If you don't know who Jesus is or if you are lukewarm in your relationship with Jesus Christ, please consider asking Him to forgive your sins and invite Him into your life. Paul says, "That if you confess with your mouth, `Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believed and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." (Romans 10:9-10.) If you have done in your private room or workplace, then you need to tell to your friends or love ones about what you have done, so they may rejoice with you and want to have that relationship with Christ in their own life. There are many religious groups in the world, which do not know the love of God and His great plan for those who believe in Him. As it is written in John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. (Matthew 24:1-6 KJV)
As there are many trategies happening in the world today, we see that Jesus Christ is coming to the earth soon to settle His government. There will be a sound of trumpet from heaven prior to the return of Jesus Christ. As we just read in Matthew 24, there will be a great deception and a rumor of war take place. The Antichrist is not going to arise to the world until the whole world system would turn into chaos. So that he can fix the system and form the New World Order, which President George H.W. Bush announced during his term in the office. The Bible also said that the Antichrist will make a seven years of Peace Treaty with Israel, but he will break in the middle of it.
I believe that we could be last generation to see the fulfillment of the Book of Revelation. Here are some of the reasons that we are the last generation.
Are you saved? Are your love ones and friends saved in the grace of God through Jesus Christ? The purpose of this study is to help you to become closer relationship with Jesus Christ. As Jesus said, "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms, if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am." (John 14:1-3.)
If you are lukewarm in your relationship with Jesus Christ and want to know Him as your personal Savior and Lord of your life, please consider asking Him to forgive your sins and invite Him into your life. Paul says, "That if you confess with your mouth, `Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believed and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." (Romans 10:9-10.) If you have done in your private room or workplace, then you need to tell to your friends or love ones about what you have done, so they may rejoice with you and want to have that relationship with Christ in their own life. There are many occults in the world, which do not know the love of God and His great plan for those who believe in Him. As it is written in John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye. For, behold, I will shake mine hand upon them, and they shall be a spoil to their servants: and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me. (Zechariah 2:8-9 KJV)
Most biblical prophecy teachers are trying to figure out where is the United States in the end time. Even though there is no indication that the U.S. in the Holy Bible, it doesn’t mean that she would escape from the wrath of God. I Peter 4:17 declares, “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God…” Don’t make mistakes that God would give our nation up after He tried to reestablish His relationship with her. Instead, He still loves us and likes to have relationship with each of us.
Right now, our nation is becoming as other pagan nations by choosing ungodly ways to lead this nation. Currently, our nation doesn’t look good with Israel. In May 7, 2015 Prophecy News said, “US President Barack Obama did not wait for Binyamin Netanyahu to finish building his new government coalition by its deadline at midnight Wednesday, May 6, before going into action to pay him back for forming a right-wing cabinet minus any moderate figure for resuming negotiations with the Palestinians." (Read The Final Poke In God's Eye? - Obama To Support Palestinian State At UN Security Council.) If President Obama would discontinue working with the Israelis Prime Minister, we would go into deep hole of God’s wrath. I don’t like to say this, but that is where our nation going.
Over the last 12 months or more, I read across to many articles that our nation is legalizing homosexual marriage, marijuana, and more. Since the U.S. has been legalized the pro-choice (abortion), for example, many unborn children hadn’t seen the light of God’s creation in this world. We have been broken the sixth law of the Ten Commandments, which says, “Thou shalt not kill.” Many school children are learning about witchcraft through Henry Potter book series; and Christian children cannot pray and read His Words in the public schools. Why? The church has been silenced and let the LGBT activists come out from the closet.
Apostle Paul said in I Timothy 4:1-3, “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.”
As the end time prophecy is continuing fulfilled, we have to choose to be family with God or with the world. James 4:4 says, “…know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” Our nation is in a sticky situation now. We cannot escape from the wrath of God until we put Him first in our life. Are you ready to meet the Lord Jesus Christ when He would return for His Church? If not, I like to encourage you to develop your personal relationship with Jesus Christ today. First, confess your sins and invite Jesus Christ to your life. Paul said in Romans 10:9-11, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” There is no sinner prayer formula. Instead, you just talk to God at where you are now. Secondly, I’d like to encourage you to find a good solid biblical teaching church and Christian friends. They can help you to build strong relationship with God. If you’d need further assistance, you can email me at or visit my ministries website at www.mgjcweb.org for further resources.
I believe that we are in a critical time in the world history. There had been many deceptions taken places over the entertainment, news, and religious media. If we turn to news, we may hear that one of our politicians have some problems with his criminal charges that he tried to hide from the media. Also, it’s happening in today’s churches. Do you know why televangelist programs spend more times with selling their products than sharing the gospel messages of Jesus Christ? Or why they are promoting themselves more than Jesus Christ?
If we study why some churches have impacted with some thousands people weekly, we would find out whole purpose is not about worshipping God, but seeking God’s blessing for our needs. Remember, during the Old Testament era, people of Israel faced several sticky situations because they relied on their own government rather than God. As a result, God disciplined them by taking them into captivity.
In II Thessalonians 2 is all about the strong delusion at the end time. If we read verse 11, there would be a strong delusion that sends by God for people to believe. Even today, we some of us may fall into delusion that is created by government, community, nation, or ourselves. I don’t like to mention that our nation is continuing fall apart from God because we deceive ourselves by relying on our government. Verse 12 says, “That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
So, what we can do to stand against the delusion? We can’t stop from happening during the last day. We need to prepare ourselves to be at the forefront of the spiritual battle (Ephesians 6:10-18). The battle is not ours, but God’s (I Samuel 17:47). We cannot be deceived by anything if we rely on God. Right now, our nation is messed because we believe some lies by our people. However, we can lead the people into God’s direction by sharing His love and good news through His Son, Jesus Christ.
Do you have your relationship with the Heavenly Father? If not, I like to encourage you to develop your personal relationship with Jesus Christ today. First, confess your sins and invite Jesus Christ to your life. Paul said in Romans 10:9-11, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” There is no sinner prayer formula. Instead, you just talk to God at where you are now.

And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? (Matthew 24:1-3)
In Matthew 24, Jesus told His disciples about things to come. Remember, Jesus had not glorify Himself from the dead yet. This sermon was before He faced horrible death penalty that He had ever faced. Why Jesus told these future prophecies to His disciples? Can these prophetic words reliable to our generation? If we look Matthew 24 more closely, we will find some of the events had already fulfilled after Jesus ascent to the heaven, some are already progressing, and has not fulfilled yet. When we read and watch our daily news, we see the progression of the bible prophecy. For example, few years ago, one of the Virginia State Delegates received the legislation to pass the bill for all the Virginians to receive the microchip in their skins. As I read one of the articles in my local newspaper, one of the delegates stood against the idea of this microchip, which we recognize as the Mark of Beast (Revelation 13). Using the technology is good thing. However, if the technology that relates to globalization or UN is meaning serious business, which it could lead us into the Antichrist. This may be same with UN disability treaty (Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities), which it has not passed through US Senate yet.
But we first will discuss on the deception within the churches. Jesus warned us in John 14:30, “Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.” Who is the prince of this world? Even though God originated this world, the world is partially dominated by Satan. But, as we read in Job 1-2, Satan cannot dominates anything until he’d receive permission from God. His goal is trying to be higher than God as we see in Isaiah 14:12-14: “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.”
Sadly, there are many churches have failed into the devil’s method of deception. If we’d wonder how our education system is messed up, because we have not stand for the truth. Look into our government system and see how our current leaders stand for the ungodly laws because of our actions. Our current president has decided to support Palestine to take over the land of Israel. It is sad enough for Obama to make our nation as socialism through his healthcare law, but let God’s enemies to take over His Holy Land of Israel. God said in Genesis 12:3: “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”
Right now, we have a president, who likes to please everyone, except God, truly born-again Christians, and unborn children. If we look back through the last two or three decades, our nation has been kept loosing Christianity heritage. If the person is in America, he or she automatically becomes Christian. As we may have noticed in any religion book, we don’t see a chapter on Roman Catholicism, because it has been blended with the Christianity for over 1500 years. Now, we do same thing with Islam. Some churches already have combined with the Islamic group and came up a name with Chrislam. That’s where TBN has started to sell some products on Islam.
Antichrist cannot arrive until the deception would be taken places. Revelation 13 tells us that he would do miracles and wonders. “And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority (13:2).” Most today’s televangelists have loose the meat part of the Word of God. Now, most of their sermons on how God bless us. Look some today’s preachers, such as Joel Osteen, Joyce Myer, Benny Hinn, and Kenneth Copland. They spent about 95% of preaching on things we need and 5% on God’s. Paul warned us in II Timothy 4:3-4, “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” This is why I don’t give their references on my ministry blog.
Let me ask you a question. Do you have your relationship with the Heavenly Father? If not, I like to encourage you to develop your personal relationship with Jesus Christ today. First, confess your sins and invite Jesus Christ to your life. Paul said in Romans 10:9-11, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” There is no sinner prayer formula. Instead, you just talk to God at where you are now. Secondly, I’d like to encourage you to find a good solid biblical teaching church and Christian friends. They can help you to build strong relationship with God.

For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. (Matthew 24:5-8 KJV)
In Matthew 24, Jesus began to teach His disciples on the last day of the earth. Before His second coming to earth, Jesus warned that there will be a lot of world tragedies would be going on, including deception of the Christian churches.
As we see in our society, world is chaos. We see that many churches are beginning to fall from foundations, Israel is preparing for war against the other nations, and governments are trying to unite together to One World Government. We also began to see there are many natural disasters are occurring in various places. For example, Japan had about 9.0 magnitude of earthquake this past week. These or more are indicating that we are getting closer to return of Jesus Christ. Yet, many people are still unfamiliar His given signs. Weather Islamic messiah would arrive on December 21, 2012 or not, we need to be ready to meet our Lord Jesus Christ.
The world says that there are many ways to Heaven, even some Christian evangelists said this (such as Billy Graham, Joel Osteen, Kenneth Copland, Paul Crouch). But there is only one way to Heaven, which is through Jesus Christ. Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
Are you ready to meet Jesus Christ? If you are new to Christianity, I’d like to welcome you to God’s family. I’d like to suggest you to visit at MGJC Web Ministry at www.mgjcweb.org to explore who God is, what God has planned for your life, and it helps you to build your personal relationship with Him. If you’d need any assistance, please feel free to email me at www.mgjcweb.org/contact.html.
If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. (James 1:26-27 KJV)
Even though the Word of God founded this country, America has turned away from the Creator and turned it to the day of Gomorrah and Sodom. People have been confused who God is. Although the September 11, 2001 tragedy woke this country up, it didn’t mean that people have fully committed to surrender to Jesus Christ.
We have adopted so many religions to this country over the years that some of us have died from the faith. We created many church denominations that we hardly agree on all the doctrines from the Word of God. If we are in Roman Catholicism, for example, we couldn’t interpret the Scriptures without priest’s approval. However, I Peter 2:9 says that we all are priests when we would save by the grace of God through Jesus Christ. We should give our worship to Jesus Christ only. I understand this theology conflicts with Roman Catholicism, because they added Virgin Mary as coequal with God.
Christianity was originally from Jewish root. Paul tells us that we are seeds of Abraham (Galatians 3:20-29). Before God called Abraham as forefather of the nation, all human beings were non-Jews. Noah was considered as gentile, even though he was the great-great-grandfather of Abraham.
Now, we have top four greatest religions that would form the New World Order in near feature. They are Roman Catholicism, Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. Right now, the United Nation is trying to make President Obama and Prime Minister of European as permanent world dictatorship, which they could lead us to Antichrist, One World Government, One World Currency, and One World Religion.
Christianity is not just a world greatest religion, but it’s about personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Virgin Mary, Buddha, or Zeus cannot do that. There was no other gods who resurrected themselves from graves, except Jesus Christ. If you want to know Jesus Christ personally, I’d like to encourage you to invite Him into you life now. Let go all the gods you have and grab Jesus’ garment and ask Him to come into your life.
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. (I Timothy 4:1-3 KJV)
Today, there are many Christian leaders, who proclaim to be truly born-again, trying to reach out to the world to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. However, there are some preachers on the media for wrong reasons. One of my friends shared with me about Noah and the ark. It was interesting to me how one TV evangelists believe that Noah built an ark for testing his faith that God gave him to do, and not for rain, according to my friend said. This is what we call half-truth and half-false or double minded.
According to Genesis 6-9, God told Noah to build an ark because He will bring a worldwide flood for 40 days and 40 nights. Also, He said to bring some animals into the ark. Yes, it did rain for 40 days and nights. To approve this theory, look at the world. We’d have about 70 percent of the earth that covers with water due to the worldwide flood that God brought. I believe that the earth began with perfect condition before the flood. About less than 70 percent of the earth covered with water. How do I know this? In Genesis 1 and the last chapter of the Book of Revelation, we can see that the new earth will be in perfect condition. All the lands will be putting back together as one huge land. God will settle His government on earth forever.
We suppose to be aliens of this world. It’s not good to hear smooth messages from pastors on the pulpit. This would make us to go further away from God. Even though pastors are to be shepherds of the Churches, we are suppose to be checked their sermons with the Bible, because it comes from God and not from humans that has many scars from our sins.
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. (Revelation 20:4 KJV)
Have you thought about what if we have dominion over the earth with Jesus Christ for a thousand year? Think about there would be no more democratic party and republic party to decide which road we should go. Right now what the American need is strong Godly leaders to lead the nation.
This pass week I heard that there are some states who decide to keep the gay marriage, lesbian, and homosexual’s rights. If we allow these activities as constitutional laws, we would say is that we don’t need God in our nation anymore; instead we are gods and allow the Antichrist enter to rule our country.
Apostle John tells us in the Book of Revelation that those who are believers and didn’t receive the Mark of Beast will be reigned with Jesus Christ for 1000 years. Reign with Jesus Christ on the earth for a thousand years may seem to be exciting to us. But this is only for those who are believers in God through Jesus Christ.
After the thousand years are expired, Satan will release from the prison for a limited time and try to deceive the nations to fight against God (Revelation 20:7-9). And then God will cast Satan back into Hell (Revelation
20:10). After all that, God will judge the people according to how they lived on the earth while the gift of salvation had been available to all men. If their names are not written in the book of life, God will cast them into the lake of fire rather than to Heaven. There is no third way to Heaven, except through relationship with Jesus Christ.
The Bible says when we enter Heaven, God will wipe all of our tears and there will be no more pain, even there will be no person who is in a wheelchair. God will give us the new glorifying body—even He will heal a cripple person into the perfect body.
Are you ready to reign with our Lord Jesus when He returns again to possess all things that He created? If you are not sure about your eternal home, you just ask Him to forgive your sins and come into your life. God doesn’t want you to be lost eternality.
And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. (Revelation
After the September 11, 2001 tragedy, about 34,000 Americans have decided to convert to Islam (http://islamicweb.com/begin/statistics.htm). Why Islam? Most people may have learned that Islam means “peace,” but it actually means surrender ourselves to them or decide to suffer the consequence through death penalty. This is exactly what Satan wants to be done through Islam and other religions.
As we began to see the birth of World War III, beginning in Middle East, we also begin to hear about the invention of small microchip that goes through human’s skin, how our nation began to make constitution law on gay marriage, homosexuality activity on TV program and educational program. If we decide to make these as constitution law, we would be no better than people in Sodom and Gomorrah. They did really unconstitutional actions against God and His people in the days of Abraham. As a result, God destroyed their cities that anyone cannot relocate these ancient cities.
So what is the New World Order (NWO) System and when it has been begun? Is this good or bad thing?
The NWO is the Satan’s method to bring every people to himself—trying to help them to understand that he is the only god. He also uses different kind of methods to collect people to himself, such as One World Government, One World Religion, and One World Economy systems. He tries to make people comfortable as possible before he would send them to Hell.
God has His system, too. But His system will not like Satan’s final decision. Although Satan will make Covent with Israel for seven years and destroy it in the midst of his contract, God has been kept His Covent with His people since the birth of nation and will keep it forever.
The New World Order System has been existed before we were born. It is not new to the world. Satan tried to blind people as he tried to progress his future plan. We may hear the New World Order plan from our presidents’ public speech, but some people may misunderstand this new world system.
We may believe that if we come with one world currency, we all can be friends to the other nations and have peace. With this mindset, we may decide to turn away from God and focus on the one world leader—Antichrist. Which leader are you going to serve and worship? If we decide to take the Mark of Beast on forehead or right hand, we will be no longer part of God’s children. We will be enemies of God and stuck ourselves in Hell forever. If it is time for Antichrist call you to take the Mark of Beast or let him to kill you for the sake of Jesus Christ, you also take your stand for your eternal destiny.
Will you be ready if you face the Antichrist and his offer? If you are not sure that you are one of God’s children, you just ask Him to forgive your sins and come into your life. If God take you to Heaven before Antichrist’s offer, you would be in a safe place. But if you don’t, you will still be in God’s hands if you refuse to take the Mark of Beast and let Antichrist murder you.
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. (I Timothy 4:1-3 KJV)
Jesus warned us that there will be many false teachers and prophets who will wear sheep clothes. As we are seeing what is going on the world today, especially in the United States of America, most popular churches are making millions of dollars by broadcasting their church services through Satellite TV and radio. Even some of small churches are getting impact with hundreds of people each week. Why? Many people hear the messages about what they want to hear and what they want to celebrate in the church (such as Christmas, Easter, Ash Wednesday).
As a result, many professing Christians are turning their faiths to doctrines of Satan. Satan has been succeeded to deceive people from God over many years through the pagan holidays—Easter, Halloween, and Christmas. If we study our Christian church forefathers in the second through fourth century, these holidays arrived from the paganism tradition by Roman Catholic Church. Even many today’s popular preachers are trying to teach us with using the same method of teachings as our Christian church forefathers did.
Paul warned us this deception will come to our generation. I had been in deception situation before and it was really hurt by one of Fredericksburg churches, which I worked for. Director of the church almost destroyed my life as well as other people’s life.
Satan wants to destroy us (ff. John 10:10a), to pull us away from our Eternal Father. He will do whatever necessary to succeed his goal, even using preachers. But we have tools to guard against the itching ear messages. We have the Bible, which it explains what’s going on the world today and we have chance to prepare to battle against the darkness. We also have the free access to God through His Son, Jesus Christ, who is wiling to help us in the midst of the battleground. If we have Jesus Christ in our lives, Satan cannot defeat us. His angels are going to loose this battle, because we have the Truth and Revelation from Jesus Christ.
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. (Matthew 24:24 KJV)
Before Jesus faced His death penalty by Roman soldiers, He warned His disciples that there will be many false Christs and prophets, who will show many wonders and miracles to the people. This prophecy is becoming reality today, especially within the churches. Some churches may tell us the truth of the gospel and some may not.
Even in Christian media, such as TBN, many Christians may deceive themselves by listening to the TV evangelists on what they want to hear. Sadly, most of them may have ended their lives as rich and miserable. As I watched some programs in TBN, most preachers usually talk about moral Christian living standard, such as gaining financial success and blessings; or some preachers may talk about the coming of Jesus Christ to their camp meeting physically.
Again Benny repeats that Jesus will physically appear at his crusades on the "This is your day" program dated May 2nd, 2000. (Real Video, see six minutes into the program - programs are recorded 3 weeks in advance, so this program was recorded before the Nairobi Crusade.) Here is a transcript of the relevant portion:
And I know, that I know, that I know, we are about to see the greatest manifestations of God's presence ever! A prophetess named Ruth Heflin sent me a word recently and told me to get ready, to see, physical manifestations of Christ on the platforms in our crusades, that people will have visions of the Lord in the meetings. Those things have happened in the past, I know. In a Thialagua (spelling?) meeting one time in Africa, the Lord appeared to a - to the whole crowd! It is about to begin happening, I know it too! Expect it, to happen also, in your own home!" (Benny Hinn, May 2nd, 2000)
So how do we know if televangelists tell us the truth of what God wrote? Even though there are many preachers who proclaim to be the Christ’s teaching, we must check with God to see if their teachings match with His Word.
As false prophets began to appear within Christian churches to prepare to make a path to Antichrist, we must realize that it’s almost for us to meet with Jesus Christ. Are you ready to see Jesus Christ and can able to recognize His Second Coming? If not, make sure to get chance to know Him before it would be too late.
For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Matthew 27:52-53 is the only Scripture that shows the people rose up from their graves as soon as Jesus died on the Cross and occurred an earthquake. Why? Even though the rapture hadn’t taken a place yet, this brief resurrection of the dead people show us that He is the God who can raise people into life. John 14 said that Jesus will come again to take us to His kingdom.
I believe that God gave Paul a vision on the rapture of the Church on the last day of the earth. Even it was not His time during Paul’s life, God wanted Paul to write his vision down, so that we can understand and be ready for His returning.
Paul began by explaining to us if we believe that God raised Jesus from the dead, He can raise people from the grave to meet with Him face to face. Remember Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, after four days, and met each other (John 11). If we remain alive, we will be caught up with Him and people from the graves in the clouds.
Many preachers said that Jesus would return and rapture the Church on either before, during, or after the Seven-Year of Tribulation. Even though the Bible doesn’t clear about when He would take the Church out from the earth, God gave us a sign when this would be taken place: at the sound of trumpet from the Heaven. When God would blow the trumpet, we must know that it is time for us to be united with the King at the clouds and live with Him forever.
The only question is: are we ready for the celebration of His returning and have a wedding ceremony with Him? If you are not sure about His invitation, you can check with God if you are on the reservation list. If you like to be on the list and be a part of the family of God, you can invite Him to come into your life. You just give your life to Him by asking forgiveness for all the sins that you committed and invite Him to the center of your life and let Him show you the light of your life.
In his fictional best-selling book, Blood Moon, Hal Lindsey explains in great detail what would happen on the final day of Lord’s second coming. Although there might be some discrepancies between his book and the Bible, he describes great detail on the religious movement that could produce the antichrist to the world. For example, Lindsey describes that the antichrist would appear on the world scene through the hatred of Islam. Although the word Islam means peace in the Arabic world, we see and hear about the Islamic people attacking Christians. Is that possible? (It seems ironic!) What does the Word of God say about the end of the world?
We need to first understand that God’s Word is always true. The Bible says that His Word never fails. We can try to change His Word around, but His Word always stays the same. Apostle John writes, “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. (Revelation 22:18-19.)
One of books in the Old Testament that deal with the end time is Daniel. The Book of Daniel is like the Book of Revelation, giving detailed prophecies on the end time (Chap. 7-12). God chose Daniel to be His messenger to the Gentile and Jewish world to warn them of the judgment that God would bring to their current and future world. We see that Daniel was in Babylon, training as a royal servant to King Nebuchadnezzar. During the reigns of Nebuchadnezzar and Balshazzar, God was with Daniel and showed him some prophetic events that would take place.
Daniel describes his visions in Daniel 7. The visions that he had seen were not just personal nightmares but were God-given dreams with purpose. God has a plan to end this world that He created and create a new one, so that the devil can’t enter the new location to destroy His creation. We are part of His creation.
Living in this very age, we have seen and heard rumors of wars in various places, people committing suicide and murdering each other in the community, government promoting partial-birth abortions, and voting in favor of gay marriage in the United States of America. We have seen the birth of the final days, and there will be more events to come before the second coming of Jesus Christ.
Although there will be more world tragedies, God will not leave us in the midst of terrifying events; instead, He will save us if we are truly born again into His family and have fellowship with Him throughout our lives. For example, God saved Daniel and his friends from the midst of their tribulations. God saved Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego from the fiery trial of Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel 3). In the fiery furnace, God was with them because He knew that they refused to worship the useless statue that Nebuchadnezzar made, and they trusted their God faithfully. Daniel himself was saved by God in the lion’s den, due to his faithfulness (Daniel 6).
We might ask ourselves what Daniel 2 and 6 have to do with the final judgment of the earth in Daniel 7-12. In Matthew 24:43-44, Jesus says, “But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh..” We need to be ready to meet the Lord’s coming. Although we do not know the final hour that Jesus would return to judge the world, we must always be prepared to meet our Holy Father. Otherwise, we might miss the opportunity to be with Him for eternity.
Matthew 24:44 applies to end time prophecy and urges us to be ready to face the new challenges in our daily lives as well. We do not know when problems might hit us. Follow the example that Daniel and his friends did when they faced the challenge. “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths (Proverbs 3:5-6).”
In the last days of the earth, there will also be a lot of cries around the globe, because many people will be left behind on this planet and few of them will be caught up with the Lord Jesus Christ in the clouds (I Thessalonians 4:17). Those who are left behind, they will face many sufferings on the earth before the white throne of judgment. (According to some experts, there will be a second Rapture of the Church during the seven-year tribulation, which will be after the first three and one-half and before the second three and one-half years of the tribulation. Although there is no 100 percent guarantee of a second rapture, there will be a lot of cries, murders, suicide, and global disaster throughout the whole world.)
Daniel also writes about the ten horns and a little horn on the fourth beast (7:7-8). He speaks about the appearance of the antichrist to the world scene. Before the appearance of the antichrist, there will be ten nations, which are ten horns, among the earth to prepare the road for the antichrist, the eleventh horn, to destroy one-third of a portion of the earth, mainly to attack the land of the Israel. Then, in Daniel 7:9-10, he talks about the judgment that God will have for each of us. He will judge by the books that were written down, recording what we did while we lived on the earth. Unfortunately, He will not judge us by our works; instead, He will judge us according to what we did on the earth with the gift of the salvation that He gave us. On the other side of the judgment seat, God will judge those who didn’t accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. In that day, they will have no choice rather than to accept their punishment from God.
Our chance to meet God in the last days of earth depends on our decisions. Nobody makes the decision for us to meet Jesus Christ. It is our own choice to accept and follow or reject Him. Consider what Daniel and his friends did when King Nebuchadnezzar made everybody worship him. They chose to worship the one true God rather than a king of fame. When the antichrist comes onto the world scene, he will declare himself lord of all lords and try to make us worship him. It is up to us to choose whom we will worship and serve eternally.
