How Can The Church Be So Blind In These Last Days?........

How Can The Church Be So Blind In These Last Days?

The modern church is far more interested in big buildings and maintaining the status quo than the controversial end time truth of Almighty God! Christians and the church have avoided prophecy and the subject of the end times like the plague. They continue to do so contrary to the word of God. 

Most Christians and the church as a whole have the attitude: I'm okay knowing about all of this on the surface, but I don't want to think about it to much or go much deeper, and they really don't want it to affect how they live or look at life. The reason they have that kind of attitude, is because they really don't understand … the Bible doesn't say, 'when you see we are in the end times and that the Lord is near,  put your head down, tuck your tail and act like nothing is happening.  No, the Bible says, 'If these things are happening, lift up your head, because your redemption is drawing nigh.' We are commanded by Christ himself to understand the signs and be watching!

He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. And in the morning, It will be foul weather today: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

Matthew 16: 2-3

At this point in history people are very confused and concerned about what they see going in the world right now, many are frightened. I encounter Christians every day who are very anxious about the future, the decline of economic, political and social stability scares them. In times like these, people tend to look even more closely at the Book of Revelation, because above all others, it encourages Christians to keep hope alive. It recognizes the hard facts of worldwide disintegration and persecution, yet it assures God's people of certain victory. The wonderful thing about the Book of Revelation is, it tells you where all of this is headed, how it turns out, Jesus Christ is victorious.

The Bible tells us that the Book of Revelation is our blessed hope, given to us as a blessed assurance to all believers, giving them a peek into the future victory that they will share with Christ. When you know that in your heart you can live your life everyday with confidence. You may not understand everything that is going on in the world, but you know that your on the right side of things and God's in control and He has a plan and He's going to bring you through all of this chaos and confusion. 

The church should be presenting God's end time plan in this light. At this point in history it is the only solution. The Bible says it is our blessed hope, is the Bible wrong? It is in fact our only hope as the world spins out of control in these last days.

Prophecy should never be a discouragement to people, they should not be frightened by it and they certainly should not feel that they can ignore it. It should motivate them to discover God's end time plan, to study and show themselves approved, to be excited about the blessed hope that Almighty God has in store for them.

The End Times in a prophetic sense began in 1948 when Israel became a nation, because many of the prophecies in the New Testament could not be fulfilled until Israel was a nation. Israel's return to its homeland — given to it by God — is just the beginning of a foretold chain of events unfolding
in the Bible. 

2500 years ago, the Bible predicted many of the prophecies that we are experiencing today. In fact the Bible is pretty clear, once Israel became a nation, a generation would not pass away before we would see the Second Coming of Christ.

"Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled."

            Matthew 24:32-34

Psalm 90:10 states,

The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

So according to the bible a modern generation is between 70-80 years, we are in the final years of this last generation. Jesus defines a generation in a manner unique to Scripture. He says that the generation alive at the time of the rebirth of Israel will still be around at the Second Advent. The last generation began in 1948 when Israel became a nation as the bible tells us in Matthew 24:4-34. If we add 70 years (2018) or 80 years (2028) to our proposed starting date and subtract 7 years for the tribulation period we come up with a date between 2011 and 2021.  

Peter reminds us, "but know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter on one's own interpretation." (2 Peter 1 v.20) In other words your opinion does not matter!

The fact is, evidences pointing to this generation as the Last Generation is all around us, interconnected with such precision that no thinking person could honestly cry "Coincidence." A plan for human history, laid out in advance, with each detail recorded thousands of years in advance, can only come from God. Those details of Bible prophecy must be fulfilled within one generation, and no other - We are the 
Last Generation!

From a biblical point of view it is impossible to argue that we are not in the last days, we are not the last generation and that we have little time left!

Paul tells believers, "You are not in darkness, brethren, for that day to surprise you like a thief". In other words, if we are trusting in Christ and looking for His coming, watching as commanded by Christ, even the very day does not have to surprise us.

At the same time, Jesus indicated that informed believers should always be able to see the "signs of the times" around them and be in anticipation of God's current or next actions, in history which will catch non-believers unawares. Jesus scolded the crowds during his first advent for being unprepared and unresponsive to his presence and future events. Christians and the church should be convicted by these same words:

Jesus said:

And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.  And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass.  Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?

                                      Luke 12:54-56

The Countdown of the Latter Days, mentioned in the verse above, actually began on May 15th of 1948 when Israel became a nation in one day, thus fulfilling scripture. The next major fulfillment on the biblical timeline was the recapturing of Jerusalem on June 7th, 1967.  This was a highly significant date on the prophetic calendar because it began Daniel's Final "week" that is comprised of 7 x 7 or 49 years.  We are currently in the 49th year also known as the 49th Judgement Shmitah.  The end of this 49th year will fall on Yom Kippur  or THE DAY OF ATONEMENT of 2015.

How can Christians and the church have it so wrong, be so totally off base and out of touch with regard to God's end time plan? Prophecy is not subject to the corrupt theology or opinions of mankind. It is not  'Oh, I think this might happen in the future.' No, the Bible says, Almighty God says, and He has been and will be right 100-percent of the time. God will not change His plan!

Every serious Bible student should know full well the very plainly stated fact of Scripture is that...there exists a satanic conspiracy to gain global domination. It is satan's supreme objective.  

There is a desperate quest under way to gain global domination, involving real-life human "agents of darkness"...explicit devotees of Lucifer, mostly among the rich and powerful of this world, who are making a very conscious, deliberate, premeditated effort to establish a kingdom of darkness on earth. When a wise person studies the Bible he can't help but get a panoramic view of the systematic unfolding of satanic "Antichrist" globalism. Much of what is being reported by the mainstream media is nothing but outright lies.

Falsehoods, misrepresentations, "re-shaping" the truth, whatever you want to call it--there has been a systematic deception and cover-up of the actual reality of a satanic globalism. These are satanic schemes which the Bible has precisely predicted thousands of years in advance
. Satan has been the architect of much of the world system we live within, and has incorporated design features with the express purpose of deception. 

The Bible has clearly warned and explained that there are not many "wise men" , honest media types or  "scholars" of this world who have accurate biblical insight and wisdom. Indeed, most of these wise men are by satanic design,headed in the opposite direction from truth...and in the direction (inadvertently or otherwise) of deception and falsehood--whether in science, history, politics, theology, etc. 

The Bible asks us:

Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

1 Corinthians 1:20

The primary reason for this is that all of those topics (and many more) need to be altered and falsified in order to obscure the truth of God's Word. Tragically, many Christians listen to many of these "wise men"--the de facto 'spokesmen' for the world system. Far too many Christians think only in terms of Satan trying to obscure theology, or that he is only trying to perpetrate deception regarding "salvation" issues. His deceptions span every area of human endeavor in a global effort to deceive the entire world in these last days.

The Devil's facade of deception can also be peeled back to reveal an entire dimension of counterfeit leaves one at a loss for words. It is clear that satan has a very specific, very dangerous, and carefully planned attack strategy aimed at the Bible-believing conservative Christian church world as history draws to a close.
