With all the hype in the air over the Mayan 2012 dooms day calendar, Reuters today posted a global poll of 16,262 “earthly inhabitants” from many countries and asked the question, "Whether they think it will come to an end through the hands of God, or a natural disaster or a political event, whatever the reason, one in seven thinks the end of the world is coming,"
What they found was that the OVERWHELMING majority DID NOT believe that we are at the time of the end! That statistic absolutely amazes me and reveals to me how true the words of Jesus was about the Last Days (Matt. 24:33, 25:13, 1 Thess. 5:1-4, 2 Peter 3:10, Rev. 3:3, 16:15)! This poll brings to light and adds to the overwhelming validity of Holy Scripture. Jesus himself gave many great warnings to this reality of our day and stated for all, "Behold, I come as a thief in the night" (Rev. 16:15)!
People who live outside the reality of biblical truth are generally superstitious about and dreadfully fearful of the King of Fears (i.e., Death – Heb. 2:14-15). Deep in their heart of hearts the world fully KNOWS that they WILL give a full account to Almighty God in the Day of Judgment no matter what race, gender, color, people, society, culture, back ground, political or religious ideology, social status, nation and tongue they come from (Ez. 18:20, Acts. 10:34, Col. 3:25, Rev. 20:11-15). Almighty God’s word clearly testifies and states that the very imprint or “TM” of the Creator is placed in their hearts testifying to ALL that they ARE Almighty God’s creation and will give a full and final account to Him in that Day (Ezek.18:4, Rom. 1:18-32, Rev. 20:11-15).
The world’s subjective global optimistic thinking, which leaves out and abandons ETERNITY’S REALITY, is that “time” will go on FOREVER and this world will never cease (2 Peter 3:2-9, Rev, 18:7). The world’s global inhabitants - because they are unregenerate, rebellious toward RIGHTEOUSNESS, spiritually dead, more than willing to live in full unbelief, dominated by a fallen nature and under the fallen spiritual despot of the world (i.e., Lucifer) are oblivious that the Day of the Lord is at hand (Rom. 1:18-32, Rom 3, 2 Cor. 4:3-4, Eph. 2;2-3, 6:12)! The world - in their lawless spiritually drunken estate are consciously oblivious to the reality that they are marching and heading to the final showdown with their Creator at the Battle of Armageddon (Psalm 2, 2 Thess. 2:8-12, Rev. 16:13-16,17:2, 19:11-21).
My dear friends, just look outside the window from even an objective worldly perspective and what do you see? The world today is on the very brink of global disaster! With all of the technological advances of our day and of the last 100 years we have accelerated human lawlessness and depravity at an EXPONENTIAL rate, transforming the global social and cultural landscapes and climates not in centuries but in brief years! Every facet of this existence today is accelerating so rapidly that peoples, nations and tongues are being swept away and deceived before they can analyze the very world in which they live in. Global fiscal desolation is at our very door along with the destructive threats of global nuclear war. Global plagues, godlessness, crudity, violence, lawlessness, sexual addiction, drug and alcohol addiction, genocide, oppression, tyranny, individualisms’ massive global division etc… DOMINATE our fallen world much like the days of Noah (Gen. 6, Matt 24:37). These poisonous and destructive fruits are the results of the godless outworking of UNRIGHTEOUSNESS and LAWLESSNESS (Gal. 5: 19-21, 6:7). Yet today the world with great zeal protects, defends, guards and will decimate any who seek to challenge their lawless deeds (John 15:18, 17:14, 1 John 3:13). This world fully embraces and condones all of these destructive actions in its never ending quest to rid the world of rightness and light in their delusional quest for “world peace” (John 3:19-21). The world’s inhabitants of today are putting all their expectations in this delusional utopian basket with no bottom in it with the goal that one day mankind will enter in to a golden age of peace and harmony (Isa. 48:22, 57:21). Oh fools! No wonder the Bible states so clearly that all are sold under sin and unbelief and they have been and are presently deceived by the god and tyrant of this world, the fallen arch angel Lucifer (i.e., Satan) Rom 3, Eph. 6:12.
For the 15% who DO believe that we are in the Last Days, many of these objective worldly thinkers KNOW NOT Christ, Almighty God’s saving solution for their souls, the countless passages referring to the Day of the Lord, Christ’s return to earth and reject the Bible’s Divine authority (2 Tim. 3:7). These can sense that there is great global trouble ahead but cannot and tragically refuse to truly want to know why it is coming about. It has been my own personal experience that the majority of men would rather believe the Mayan’s who were a bunch of blood thirsty, superstitious, barbaric savages who were also astrological geniuses’ than Almighty God the Creator of the GLORIOUS Heavens and earth! No matter how you cut the vegetarian pizza on this poll you will find that UNBELIEF is KING and the common denominator among the world's inhabitants in which the very thief of the night will enter in (Matt. 24:33, 25:13, 1 Thess. 5:1-4, 2 Peter 3:10, Rev. 3:3, 16:15).
We are in the Last Days my friends, believe it or not and it will come as a thief to this godless, Christ rejecting, lawless the world. It will be after the Rapture of the Church (i.e., Christ’s called out assemble) that the world will maybe start to pay attention for UNBELIEF IS UNBELIEF IS UNBELIEF, remember Pharaoh’s heart? But it will not be until the HORRIFIC and CATASTROPHIC ride of the Four Horsemen and the following GREAT earthquake and wonders in the heavens that the world will now personally know that they are truly in the GREAT and DREADFUL DAY of THE LORD (Rev. 6). The seal judgments of Almighty God and the Lamb will finally be the horrific and sober wake up call to a godless world that Almighty God will not overlook godless rebellion and the mindset of UNRIGHTEOUSNESS in His holy presence.
Even to the end of this horrific seven year period called “the Day of the Lord or the 7 year tribulation” mankind will continue to war against Almighty God and not heed His warnings (2 Thess. 2: 8-12, Rev. 9:20-21, 16:21). They will choose to remain willfully ignorant and rebellious all the way to Armageddon. They in their subjective rage will be clueless that Christ will return from Heaven’s glory (Zech. 14:1-4, Rev. 19:11-21). Christ’s second coming to earth to destroy the remaining armies of the anti Christ and establish His EVERLASTING reign of RIGHTEOUSNESS will come as a thief in the night to a godless and rebellious world and will also be so even unto those Jews and gentiles who have come to a saving knowledge of the Lamb (Matt. 25:31-46, Rev. 7:13-17). So EXPONENTIALLY TURBULENT, so EXPONENTIALLY HORRIFIC will this time be that all SENSE of time will be absorbed into the vacuum of this CATASTROPHIC period. The simple counting of the seven years from the signing of the covenant to the return of Christ from Heaven’s glory will be lost in a world EXPONENTIALLY spiraling out of control (Isa. 24:5-6, Rev. 6-19). The Bible is very clear on this REALITY that Christ’s return to earth WILL be as a THIEF IN THE NIGHT (Rev. 16:15)!
It is not God’s Son's desire that He should come as a thief in the night but that all would hear His voice today and believe (John 3:16-17)! His Word today is everywhere. God has made it plentiful! It is in every tongue and language and the Internet has provided global access to the simple message of salvation! My friend, EVERYONE is without excuse (Acts 17:30-31, Rom 1:18-20). Before the arrival of the dreadful Day of the Lord Almighty God has given abundant, ample warning to ALL to be saved and be delivered, not just from the coming Day of the Lord, but from ETERNAL damnation (John 3:36, Rev. 20:11-15). Beloved, NOW is the time, NOW is the day of salvation. Will you hear the Holy Spirit and the bride’s voice (Rev. 22:17)? May it be so my dear friend! Place your trust in Jesus Christ, who is your Lamb and propitiation for your transgressions TO ANSWER Almighty God’s RIGHTEOUSNESS (Rom. 10:4, 1 John 2:2).
The Kingdom of God is at hand!!
