Topic: End of the Age
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.
- Advanced technology: Now we have a microchip to go into the animal skins. Pretty soon, it will be available for our skin. The microchip contains the personal data information, such as banking account, your health information, and your personal profile. If you read The Left Behind series, Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins provided a false information about the Mark of Beast. They said that if Christians receive the mark, they can reverse it. However, our Bible said that it is an eternal mark to separate ourselves from God. Read Revelation 13 and see how we close to see the event.
- We see that some people fall into a great deception. Paul said in II Thessalonians 2: 11, "And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie…" We see on our televisions. Many people believe into the televangelists that if they'd give $1000 to their ministries, God will give them double portion of your money. This is why I don't like any outreach ministry-a-thon on Christian channels. We read about how Jesus was upsetting when the Temple turned into merchandise stores. Even today, we see same situation. First twenty minutes of the program is on teaching and the remainder of the program is commercials.
- Our Bible has been attacked over the years. Have you noticed that we have hundreds versions of the Bible while other religions have one? Why is that? Think moment. Jesus warned us that there will be prince of this world is about to come, who has nothing to do with Him (John 14:30). Just as what he did to Adam and Eve, he will do everything in his power to try to push us away from God. One of his methods is trying to make us confuse with God's Words. Many today' Bible versions have omitted original Greek and Hebrew manuscript of the text. This is why there is no conviction of our spirits when we read the Bible. We need to read and meditate on God's Words everyday to sharp our spirits. The King James Version of the Bible arrived from the original manuscript.
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."
