The End Times – End of the World
Everywhere, everywhere people are obsessed with the end times and the end of the world! Moves blast about cataclysmic disasters. Preppers store food in their basement shelters – my neighbor has expensive ebola suits. Prophets speak of tragedy, earthquakes, and judgement.
Christians are falling into the world’s trap of crying, “We’re doomed. We’re going to lose everything.”
Followers act like “Chicken little.” If you remember the kid’s story, Chicken Little tried to take a trip – but couldn’t interpret the “signs” and always thought that the sky was falling on his head. He was convinced that the world was coming to an end and all would be lost. “The sky is falling, the sky is falling,” he insisted. Chicken Little had not been mentored or prepared for getting outside the barnyard on his own.
Are you like that when you see the gas prices escalate, stock markets go crazy, and blood moons come and go? Does the word seem to be going to go to hell in a hand basket!
Listen, you can be convinced that everything is over – or you can believe the Goodness of the Word of God. Remember how the disciples looked up to the clouds and the angels said: “Why do you stand looking into the sky?” (Acts 1:11). Like – dude, don’t just stand there waiting for Jesus to come back! There’s a life to LIVE! An abundant life that Jesus came to give you awaits.
I just went to a conference where the focus was on Islamic terrorism, the vileness of sexual immorality, and the threat of the end. Three days of fear – no solutions. I couldn’t stay and hear anymore…
The Bible doesn’t tell us to be fanatical with the end. Jesus said: “Concerning that day and hour NO ONE knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only” (Matt. 24:36).
Let’s stop agreeing with negative outcomes. Let’s STOP prophesying judgement into existence. Let’s stop judging each other.
First, believe God’s Word. Second, SAY God’s Word. Finally, DO God’s Word. It’s really that simple.
“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith” (1 Jn. 5:4).

Why is the Church Weak and Scrawny?
Dr. Kluane Spake http://kluane.com
Scripture says, “Blessed are the MEEK” not the WEAK!!
Most believers worship from a WEAK and SCRAWNY view of the CROSS. They feel guilt-ridden, disappointed, and often ineffective. They try and try. They hope without change. They are worried about end times. They are caught up with way tooooo many “do’s and don’ts!” They think they are never good enough!
Truth is, many are weak because they have not learned how to operate in the Kingdom they have already been given.
Victory has remained obscured by centuries of misunderstanding.
The message of the cross has been limited because we didn’t know what the cross did! It is not a secret… The message of the cross is the manifestation of the power of God (1 Cor. 1:18 AMP). The Finished work of the cross is the most important event that has ever happened.
I just can’t stop thinking about it!
- Where is the Glorious Church?
- What did Jesus finish? Why does it matter to you?
UNDERSTAND… “Jesus said unto them (the apostles), My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to FINISH His work” (John 4:34). Here the will of God is clearly defined, “to finish the work given.”
Just before Jesus was arrested, He prayed His High Priestly prayer saying (John 17:4), “I Brought glory to you on earth by FINISHING the WORK you gave me.”
On the cross, Jesus triumphantly cried out, “IT is finished.” What could be more important than He accomplished the purpose for which He came? The Greek word for finished” is tetelestai, an accounting term that means “paid in full.” Jesus paid it all. NOT that He owed the Father anything; rather, Jesus eliminated the debt owed by humankind.
