Firstly, I am not predicting the End Times; the Bible has already, accurately, done so. Secondly, countless others have already given their predictions, interpreted scripture and made their educated guesses. Thirdly, I believe the Bible…period. All that said, indulge me for a moment; I should like to afford you a few scriptures, while, pointing out some things of noteworthy-obviousness.
Luke 17:26 “Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. .Luke 17:27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Luke 17:28 It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building.”
The Bible, speaks of an obliviousness to the happenings of the world, that people will continue to do what they always did, right up until the very, last moment. Even though, so much is blatantly, plainly, obvious…right before their eyes, people will not see or notice, what surrounds them. And I’ve been watching portions of this for a long while, now.
How many people do you see, in a given day, irresponsibly buying and selling, without the vaguest notice of our economic status? The United States is very, very near to the brink of catastrophic, economical failure and yet, people continue as always. Chasing after the latest, fad diets, sinking thousands of dollars into scrap-heap, imported cars to make them what? More invested-in, pieces of worthless, scrap metal? Concerning over celebrity nonsense, sports enthusiasms and absurd, television programs? Bickering over the legalities, properness and morality of same-sex marriages?
So much, great and terrible, chaos has ensued within our government, political parties and the like, at every level. Local, state, and federal government is more corrupt, failing and brittle than ever before…and we concern over trivial items of daily living as though nothing is the matter.
Not long ago, I watched a video about a group of slaughterhouse cows, having been taken into the care of a group of people for release, into an open pasture. Those cows, once doomed to death as food items, ran, skipped, played, rolled in the grass as care-free, children! They appreciated the freedom they had received and relished in it! It occurred to me that, even they, seemed to be more keenly-aware of their circumstances than most people of this country, of this world.
People, when will you begin to see how you must open your eyes? A certain truth is this; you will realize the severe importance of matters when, the comings-and-goings of this world are halted by the darkening of the Sun and Moon…Matthew 24, style.
