Imagine this: The news is broadcasting frightening images of a world gone crazy. The world wide governments have ordered martial law. Still, the streets are littered with rioters, gangs and innocent men and women just looking for some gas to put into their vehicles are beaten or killed.
This is not hard to imagine because we have already seen this happen in our streets.
People are stealing and hoarding supplies, food and water. They're killing each other trying to prepare for an impending doomsday. A flood of Biblical magnitude sweeps upon major coastal cities.
This is not hard to imagine because we have already seen this happen in our cities.
However things will get worse. There is not getting better or things returning to "NORMAL."
We will experience power outages. It may be more than just a temporary power outage. It could be the actual end of life as we know it on earth. Imagine: No air conditioning in the summer of extreme heat. No heat in the winter of extreme cold. Where will you be? What will you do? Will you be stressing out trying to survive the chaos as you look for supplies, power, food and water?
Or will you be at peace, already prepared to stand in faith at the inevitable end of the world? If you've ever thought about preparing for or surviving the End of the World there are some things that you need to know.
No one will survive the end.
I know this sounds doomsday in the message however we need to read and reread Matthew 24 and the Book of Revelation. We cannot pray enough, fast enough, witness enough, be revived enough to stop what is going to happen.
The world as we know it will be destroyed and God the Father will bring about a New Heaven and New Earth and a New City. We are not called to be survivalists but overcomers.
This does not mean that we are not to be prepared but it should change our thought process. If we are surviving as believers, tell me, how long do we need to survive? The end of the ages will not be like a major Hurricane or flood hitting an area and we try to “hold on” until things get back to normal.
There will be NO GETTING BACK TO NORMAL! The “End Times” message is just that…the end times. We cannot fast, pray, or store enough stuff to outlast or stop the end that is coming. The reason I say this is because there are those among both Christian and lost people who acknowledge that an “End Times” event will happen but that if we are “prepared enough” we will weather the storm and things will eventually get back to some state of normal with whatever and whoever is left behind.
More on this later. Rejoice the Lord is coming.
