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).
