"For me the big story is how rapidly these events are unfolding. Folks, the end time prophesies are literally exploding before our eyes. That tells me the rapture of the church is even closer than we dared believe. It is so important to be prepared for that day. ... I'm so convinced that we are in the final days of this age..."
I sense the urgency also in Jack Kelley, who flatly stated the other day that it seems like the rapture can be any day and we will not have long to wait. (I'm NOT a "May 21" believer). It's just that after careful study of the bible and what we are told will happen by the God of the Universe, that it is plain to see that the days are here and the end is in sight. Most prophecy watchers are feeling a sense of urgency, for ourselves and also for the lost. As urgent as we feel the quickening of the Spirit and the imminence of the anticipated event, the lost are even more uninterested each day. I think of someone I know.
She is not saved and not interested in end time prophesies. I don't think she is interested in the bible except as an intellectual exercise and to instill proper Jewish upbringing to her sons. She wrote on Twitter a few weeks ago: 'I followed someone who was recommended, googled her and saw that she had written an end times essay. Ugh. End times. So not my thing. I quickly unfollowed.'
Now here is the ultimate irony. The ultimate tragedy. She will have to ENDURE the end time. It WILL be 'her thing' and so in her face that she will either convert, die, or go mad with the horror of it. The flippancy and arrogance of her dismissal of all end time biblical events, of the Word of a God she professes to believe in, is the horrifying thing. She will have to face the eternal consequences of her words.
The last days are here. We must be ready, believers and unbelievers. Believers need to remain confessed of their sins on a daily basis. Let nothing separate you from the direct line to God at this time. Stay abiding in Him who saves, protects, and loves. Non-Believers, you chortle at end time discussions. You mock and scoff. But you are the ones who will have to live it. Let the Holy Spirit who draws you tug at your heart one more time, and this time be prepared for His conviction. Because, you know, the Tribulation was designed since the foundation of the world to be YOUR THING.
