A Voice Crying in The Wilderness

***WARNING***

Some May Find This Post Disturbing, Please Use Discretion.

The science cited in this post is not 100 percent, but it is very solid.

Jesus spoke often about the future, warning His followers that being a sojourner behind enemy lines would not be an easy life to live. It is, rather, if truly lived, a life filled with danger, suffering and the many difficulties associated with the Narrow Way. On the occasion of sending out the twelve to spread His gospel of love, Jesus gave this surprising revelation: “Now brother will deliver up brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.” Mat. 10:21-22

I have been terribly concerned lately for all the division being sown among us on a worldwide basis, division of every kind, religious, political, moral, philosophical, division among families and a widening divide between genders. I clearly see our enemies sowing the seeds of division and doing it with the help of our own leaders, using our educational systems, our courts, our free press and every kind of entertainment media. By their efforts, every bond of nature and of men is being broken. I attribute this wide-spread assault to the work of Satan, and perhaps that’s true, but I’ve come to see that, just as in the Garden and again at the Cross, Satan has been duped or perhaps compelled, to carry out God’s plan, a snare set by God that Satan has freely walked into by the power of his own will.

Christianity seems to have lost sight of God’s true purpose in creating a temporal world, a purpose that will forever be a mystery to the lost but ought to be understood within the church. You see, in the end, God must know who among us are with Him and who among us are against Him. In the end, He must separate the wheat from the chaff. In the end, the world must be so divided that there can be no question about an individual’s relationship to Him, for our distinct destinations in eternity are at stake. That is why Jesus, speaking to His followers, gave them some of the most troubling words ever to come from the lips of a savior.

He said, “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. For I have come to “set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’” Mat. 10:34-36

That time has come upon us, the time for God to prepare the Earth for its destined finale. In Genesis when God came to observe the people of the post-diluvian world, He watched as they used illicit knowledge to construct a city and a tower in defiance of Him. As He observed, He commented on their activities, “Indeed the people are one together and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them. Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.” So the Lord scattered them abroad from that place, over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building their city,” …at least for a time.

God’s action was a delaying tactic to prevent the people from destroying themselves before God’s appointed time has come. All these thousands of years later, standing atop our new tower of science and technology, with the Hubble telescope and many other tools at our disposal for observing the universe, we can see how near Earth is to its literal end. As our solar system passes out of a dense, and highly magnetic, hydrogen cloud, a protective cocoon that has enveloped us for the past fifty thousand years, we find that the earth’s destruction could come as soon as within the next century. Our small planetary system is traveling through the Milky Way Galaxy at a speed of approximately 1.5 billion mph so that it will very soon sling-shot us out of the protection of the hydrogen cloud’s magnetic shields and into the void of deep space. At the same time, the protection we receive from our own star’s already failing magnetic shields will be greatly reduced. In addition, the Earth’s own ever-shifting magnetic shield will also begin to weaken. The result of all this will leave the earth exposed to the brutal onslaught of powerful, tsunami-like waves of interstellar radiation that continually surge through deep space. Add to all this the much-reduced protection we will have from the million mph solar wind produced by our own star, and in a very short time, Earth’s atmosphere could be stripped away and the earth become a barren, lifeless red planet like Mars.

Of course, God knew all this from the beginning. He has warned us time after time about the coming end of all things temporal, and the imperative we have to prepare for a new life in eternity. Today, in the twenty-first century of Christ, standing atop our high tower of defiant knowledge, we can actually see the literal end coming, and we are shocked to find that it is not far off. Just a few years ago scientists thought that we had ten thousand years or so to prepare, and now we find that there may be only a couple of hundred or less.

The question is, what will we do with all this terrible knowledge? Will we continue to deny God, deny His existence, deny His hand in creation, deny the benefit of His moral law, deny His son, His sacrifice of blood, His death, His resurrection? Or will we, in all wisdom, voluntarily cease building what Augustine referred to as “The City of Man,” with its lofty tower of illicit knowledge. Will we instead, fall on our knees, beg His forgiveness and turn to Him for our salvation, denying our sinful selves as His son commanded. The choice is yours of course but bear in mind that what’s at stake is where you will spend the rest of your eternal life. God is on the move. He is moving from darkness to light. Don’t let human pride cause you to be left behind.
