Who Can You Trust in the Days Ahead?

Since the prophecies of the Messiah’s first coming were fulfilled literally, it is only sensible to believe that the prophecies of His second coming (of which there are more) will also be fulfilled.

Unless God changed His mind. Or He’s not as powerful as He once was. Or His word is just a cosmic prank.

For those who can read the signs of the times, it is obvious that we are on the cusp of a great upheaval, and the world as we know it will soon come to an end. At some point after this great upheaval, the time period Daniel and John wrote so much about will begin. The prophets and Jesus Himself warned extensively about what will happen during this time period.

We were warned in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 that a great apostasy is coming.

Matthew 24:11 “And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. 12 And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But the one who endures to the end will be saved.”

Luke 12:51 “Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division. 52 For from now on in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three. 53 They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”

54 He also said to the crowds, “When you see a cloud rising in the west, you say at once, ‘A shower is coming.’ And so it happens. 55 And when you see the south wind blowing, you say, ‘There will be scorching heat,’ and it happens. 56 You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky, but why do you not know how to interpret the present time?”

Matthew 10:34 “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. 36 And a person’s enemies will be those of his own household.”

Mark 13:12 “And brother will deliver brother over to death, and the father his child, and children will rise against parents and have them put to death. 13 And you will be hated by all for my name’s sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved.”

Luke 21:16 “You will be delivered up even by parents and brothers and relatives and friends, and some of you they will put to death.”

I hope, for your sakes, you understand that you can’t trust politicians, the media, the police, the military, etc. But our Lord and the prophets warned us repeatedly that other believers are going to turn on us and betray us, too.

You would think the one person you could trust, when the world is upside down, would be a somebody from your church.

1 Timothy 4: 1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, 2 through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared.

Matthew 7:15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.”

I’ve recently become aware of something called “Clergy Response Teams.” This is just another trend that is showing us how close we are to the time period the Bible has been warning us about. Certain government agencies have been enticing church leadership into playing the Judas goat for their flocks when the time comes. What is alarming is that a whole lot of church leadership is signing onto the program.

26,000-to-28,000 as of 2006. I plan to cover this subject in some detail in future posts.

I never doubted the existence of God. I thank my parents for that. Even so, most of my life could be summed up as a shameful rebellion against Him. Still, even when living like a reprobate heathen, I still occasionally studied the Bible. I found it just as confusing and seemingly contradictory as most people, yet I could also discern there was power in it, and truth beyond my finite reckoning. After finally admitting to my Creator, "You are God and I am not," my study of the Bible became a bit more intensive. I have learned much, and will learn much more. I plan on sharing some of that here.
