Mark 13: 28 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near: 29 So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors.30 Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
Jesus said that as long as we don’t see the things he speaks of we know the end isn’t near. BUT when we see them know that his coming is near; it’s at the doors. So much is happening quickly and obviously. Verse 23 tells us take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things. He told us it would come. The signs come and when we see them, at any moment he could come. We’ve seen the signs unfold as well as the increase of iniquity. They make one statement: the end is at hand. Jesus’ coming is imminent. Every facet of the world is crying out the end is near. We’ve seen them so much and so long that we’ve become numb to them.
God is not important anymore. If some have a God it is a false god. As it was in the days of Noah so it is now. The stench of wickedness went to the nostrils of God. It was down to a bare few that served the Lord. The gospel is effectively preached to the world through various means of television and internet. Unfortunately the devil uses those same means to get out his message. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the only hope for the world. If you’re clinging to hope in America or in politics, it won’t happen. God is the only solution.
When the gospel is almost against the law and every religion is elevated above Christianity, our nation is gone. The America we live in is a modern-day Babylon. It’s a Sodom and Gomorrah. Homosexuals are being married right in our county. Abortions are right in our door. People live together without marriage. Kids are being taught what they shouldn’t be. Television and movies are filthiness, fornication, and adultery with every kind of perversion. Incest is being pushed as all right. The only thing frowned on is the Bible and Christians.
Jesus gave the signs. When you see them come to pass, it’s at the doors. Roe verses Wade opened the door. Sure we have to right to do what we want with our bodies but when that interferes with the rights of someone else, it’s not right. A woman’s right doesn’t override the right of the unborn baby. Just because it is legal doesn’t make it right. America is on its way to hell as are all nations that forget God. Minds are twisted. Any kind of God is all right. The blood of Christ is trampled. We put more effort into how we talk and dress than God. We talk a good talk and parade around. All the while others are dying and suffering saying it won’t touch us—it won’t touch me. It is here.
People have all but forgotten 9/11. Police can’t enforce laws without riots. America has gone to the devil. Be careful lest you be overcome and drawn away. We may be further away than ever and we’ve become numb to it. They were in Noah’s day. Everything seemed okay, but it wasn’t. Our days and hours are numbered.
When Jesus comes the door opens for the four horsemen. The Anti-Christ will rise. These are wicked times but they are also fulfilling times. Don’t be deceived. Will you sell out a baby’s life for the sake of a dollar promised you by a politician? We can’t separate secular life from Jesus. If you’re going to be a child of God, you need to live it. Draw a line at the voting booth. The wicked are knocking down doors and they’ll come to yours. Before they do Jesus could come knocking. Are you ready?
Verse 34 says for the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. We have a responsibility. Call sin, sin. If we choose to do wrong, be man and woman enough to call it wrong. Don’t call it right. Jesus taught this right after he had called out the Scribes and Pharisees in the temple. How could they escape the damnation of hell? The time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God. It’s time to repent, time to be revived. It’s time to get ready to leave. Ready or not Jesus is coming. He won’t look at the church roll. He knows what matters to us. If we love our money and our security more than God, he knows. Stop and think about it. He knows if we really love him.
Are you a sympathizer to causes against the Word? We’re too ill prepared to answer the simplest questions posed to us. People in other religions are well prepared. We’d better study and call on the Lord. Jesus is only coming after those who are ready. He could come at sunset, at dawn or in the middle of the day. Don’t be found sleeping. You can fall asleep with your eyes wide open. People fall asleep driving before they know what’s happened. It’s high time to awake. If you are left behind you’ll face tribulation and before you know it you’ll be in hell and then the lake of fire. This is truth like it or not believe it or not. We’ll all stand before the Lord. It’s high time to ready ourselves for he is nigh even at the doors.
