Christian blogs that have current news events posted on them, or make a stance against certain laws, and or movements are many times overlooked , or dubbed by readers as being politically motivated sites rather than being spiritual venues to help carry the good news of the gospel of Christ. I ask you to take a closer look, for this is not always the case. I will admit, however, that many of the ones I have viewed in the past few weeks do tend to lean more to partisanship of one side of the political arena or the other.
We as Christians need to stay informed to the current happenings around us, particularly if we want to know where we as the “Body” are in Gods overall time frame. The events taking place on the world stage today are not only written about for us by God in the Bible to know the times and the season of His return, but are also recomended by God for us to take notice of and compare to to His word. No other book in the entire Holy Bible does God promise us that we who read it and keep the words in our hearts will be blessed but the Revelation of Jesus Christ.
The Bible does directly state that “This is a Prophecy,” or symbolic, for those of us who are in His Kingdom to read and learn from it’s fore-telling of things that will come to pass, and in reality are taking place right now before our very eyes. What a wonderful privilege and blessing it is for us to be the generation that is still alive here on earth while those things which were written about two thousand years ago are taking place around us, and to have every resource available at our fingertips and viewing pleasure for following them as they take place.
We are a chosen generation, the only generation to not only witness first hand a revelation given by God, but “The Revelation” the Revelation of Jesus Christ. This does not mean this is a revelation about Jesus, Although it is to those of us who will read and watch, this is the Revelation that God gave to us, about JESUS!!!
Here, for those who like to study, is wonderful mathematical proof of just ONE of God’s love letters to His children in Prophetic form that has come true. And for those who profess His name yet, believe that there is no significance to the time that we are living in, (prophetically) or only believe the prophecies filfilled from the point of 70 A.D. are complete, or now Spiritual language only; This Prophecy given way before, but leading TO the Temple destruction in 70 A.D. unequivocally opens the envelope to Daniels 70 week prophecy, and began a new Prophecy, which VERY much pertains to today.
1The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:
2Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
3Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.
In His mercy, God not only sent His only Son to bare all of the worlds sin, thereby defeating death, hell and the grave, but He also sent us a wonderful love letter through the prophets telling us how to receive the forgiveness and wisdom that it takes to be a part of His wonderful plan of salvation. We are supposed to be the light of the world, sharing His wonderful plan with others. I can’t think of any better way of doing that , than by first knowing what the word of God really has to say about things pertaining to the world in which we live. I know a lot of folks only want to share that Jesus is all love, and all tolerant, therefore, they do not want to be reminded of the hate and hurt in the world in which we live. Unfortunately, there is a dieing world around us out here, and if we do not share the reality of the current events, and the pertinence of making the best of what time we have left, then who will? I heard a very profound statement once concerning going to heaven, although, I do not know who to credit for the words, but they do hold a sobering truth to them: “We can not help to save anyone after we are in heaven” Oh, and I feel I need to add also here, that Jesus, or God is not at all tolerant, in the worldly sense of the word, not when it comes to unrepentant immorality anyway. His love many times is tough love, and rarely the touchy feely, live and let live sort of love that the world thinks of love as being. This by no means is to say that He does not want us to feel securely loved by Him. In fact the more I learn to appreciate His tough love that keeps causing me to grow, the more secure and loved I feel. And of course He does reach down and give us that occasional spiritual hug as well. So, basicly I am saying as God has said, “My people suffer for a lack of knowledge.” Spiritual wisdom comes from Gods word, and for those who do not want to read Revelation because they think it is all about Gods Wrath and not Gods love are only missing the entire point and message. It is the Revelation of Jesus Christ, and therefore much about the “Wrath of the Lamb” which by the way, we as Christians are supposed to be warning the rest of the world about, and not hiding behind a theocratic belief that He will come and sweep us away from all harm and danger in a so called pre-trib rapture, which parenthetically, should we really study His word rather than take other peoples interpretation of as salt we will find to be more of a “Pre-Wrath” rapture, than a Pre-Tribulation rapture, (reference: see “Pre-Wrath” rapture on this site )
I encourage all Christians to try and see beyond the political parties that seem to be the dividing factor of many of the laws and current world events today enough to compare the news to the Prophetic words God has sent for us to know what takes place next. Politics has a lot to do with it, but, as we all are soon to realize, (or at least those who haven’t already figured it out) the political/religious regime that will soon rule the world , until Jesus returns, is, and has been ONE party, infiltrating both sides of the political arena, working behind the scenes, and making it’s way to this point and time in History since the Tower of Babel written about in Genesis 11.
In closing I would like to say that I do not believe that making a stance against those who pervert Gods laws and principles of morality will change one thing in the over all world stage and final curtain draw as it has already been written as to how it will all end. However, if we as the children of God would take a closer look at the”Program” we have been given to enlighten us to the epic chronological events on the stage before us, I know , that it will make a difference in the thing that we have been commissioned to do to begin with, and that making all the difference in the world, even if it changes the direction of but one lost soul.
End Time means Beginning Again, a GOOD thing, not doom and gloom.
