Heed God's warnings!
Mankind claims to have become super intelligent and even boasts that there is nothing too hard for him to accomplish! Surely you realise he is NOT able to control this life, nor can he control the next life! 1*.
In our super advanced world are you surprised to still find religious confusion, wars, rebellion, fighting and destruction among fellow-countrymen, earthquakes, famines and pestilences, and fears about events in space and in the sea?
Two thousand years ago these very things were listed by Jesus Christ as events that would be happening in the world at the time of His return. 2*.
In the religious confusion of today are you sure who you should believe? Jesus said, "Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in My name, claiming, `I am He,' and `The time is near.' " We are not to follow 3*. any "Gurus" or "Vicars" or "prophets" or "angels" or "priests" who claim to be taking Jesus place and who claim to be able to do what Jesus alone can do. Only Jesus can bring you to God!
Those who accept the teachings of Jesus, the Son of God, are not left confused! Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No-one comes to the Father except through Me." 4*. True faith in Jesus brings you peace with God and power to live a life pleasing to God. 5*.
Perhaps you're thinking anyone could guess at something that might happen in the future. True! But to give details of many things that would happen at the same time would prove that it was not guesswork. Jesus told of many things that would be happening together at the time of His return!
Man has hoped to be able to end all wars long ago, but Jesus knew that wouldn't happen! He said that before His return, "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom." 6*. God uses both these phrases elsewhere in the Bible to describe civil unrest within countries. 7*. How many countries in our world today have serious troubles within their own borders? MANY! Every day some will be mentioned on the news!
Jesus also said, "There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events .." - frightening things in space and in the sea! You would think Jesus was just listing the things we are hearing on television news every day!
Jesus compared these signs to the birth pains of an expectant mother - and they increase more and more just before her baby comes. 8*.
Jesus is soon to come again, not as a baby but as "the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory… " 2*. He is coming to save those who have put their trust in Him and are eagerly waiting for Him. 9*.
Heed God's warnings! God's Son is returning, and there will follow judgment and wrath against the unrepentant sinners. 10*. In love He has clearly warned you that you have little time left to be made right with God before it is too late! Seek the Lord while He may be found! 4*.
Read the warning signs Jesus gave in Luke's Gospel, chapter 21, verses 8-28
