This world is clearly on a trajectory to judgment. This is no longer a "gloom and doom" message from kooks or religious fanatics; it's the sober assessment of politicians, industry leaders, economists, theologians, scientists… name an area of professional expertise, and you will find intelligent men and women who have studied the implications of cultural change, technological development, medicine and politics and the like, and have concluded that a crisis of literally "Biblical proportions" is now unavoidable.
For seven years beginning in June 2009, this site supported a daily podcast focusing on current events and Biblical prophecy. Today, the remaining pieces of the prophetic picture are falling into place rapidly and unmistakeably. We no longer need information; indeed, the average American is "over-informationized" to the point of stupefaction. What we need now is BOLDNESS - informed and energized disciples of Jesus Christ who will put Him first and extend His offer of reconciliation with God to a deceived and despairing world.
The purpose now is helping every serious Christian prepare for the return of Jesus Christ in order to give Him the bride He deserves. We don't need more "head knowledge" - the Judgment Seat of Christ is not a written test. Rather, we need energized believers who will apply what they already know, in the world where we all have been sent. This is not a time for Bible studies; it's a time for obedience.
One might ask, How does someone prepare for something as cataclysmic as divine judgment against the whole country? Here's how:
- First, this is NOT a time to panic. We have known for 2000 years that Jesus was going to return, set up His kingdom, and judge the earth.
- Get your spiritual house in order. REPENT. This means align your life with the law of God. Where you have sinned, you must acknowledge your sin, confess it to God, and make restitution where-ever possible and AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. If you are unclear or unsure of your own eternal destiny, take the Trip to Truth spiritual roadmap - make your calling and election sure.
- OBEY - Every person who was saved in the Church Age repented, confessed, was baptized, and submitted to the Lordship of Christ in ALL of life. If you are not living in newness of life, it's because you are not reconciled to God through Jesus Christ. Do yourself (and your loved ones!) a favor: turn off the TV, take out the trash (foul books, music, videos, etc.) and get your heart right before God. DO NOT PUT THIS OFF. Don't trifle with God, His law, or His offer of salvation. He WILL preserve you if your belief is evidenced by obedience, hatred of sin, holy living, and love of the brethren.
Jesus said He would come quickly, and we believe (with good reason!) that He is coming soon. Please consider the evidence and come to your own prayerful conclusions, and then demonstrate in your life what is that "good and acceptable and perfect will of God." (Romans 12:2)
