Are We Living In The “End Times”?

Editor’s Note: Please focus on the events taking place all over the globe. IMO, we are without question living in the last days before Christ returns for His Bride. He has commanded us to be watchful, waiting and longing for His return. If we are not doing these things then a commanding question for us all is: “Will we then be taken when He appears in the clouds”? (Heb 9:26; 2 Tim 4:7-8).

Some very serious things to think about…

On another note … what occupies your time? Is it meditating and praying to Almighty God? Is it seeking the Lord daily? Is it in reading and studying His word daily, without fail? Is it ministering to others? Is it in praying for others? You see in the days we live now there are many things that distract us and get our eyes off Christ.  So please take some time to pray and seek the Lord. Read His word for that is one of the ways He speaks to us.

Last question … do you really want to be with Him right now? Do I? My answer, without hesitation, is a resounding yes!! But where are you at today? Saved? Backslid? Sitting on the fence?

If you faith was measured today, what would the results look like?

Think on these things now in the days we are living.

Are We Living In The “End Times”?

By Michael Snyder in Nov, 2022

Are we living in the days just before the return of Jesus Christ to this planet?  Right now, there is a tremendous amount of chatter about the “end times” all over the Internet.  So many really crazy things are starting to happen all over the world, and many people correctly recognize that we were specifically warned that a lot of these crazy things would happen in the last days.  For example, in Matthew 24 Jesus specifically told us that there would be “wars and rumours of wars”, “famines” and “pestilences” just prior to His return.  As global events continue to spiral out of control, speculation that prophetic events described in the Bible are happening will only intensify even more.


Of course there are plenty of skeptics out there.  In particular, there have been quite a few articles in the mainstream media lately that portray Christians that believe that we are living in the “end times” as a bunch of nuts.

But even though they think that such Christians are crazy, mainstream pundits openly admit that there are lots and lots of people out there that are interested in learning what the Bible has to say about the “end times”.  The following comes from a Slate article entitled “Why Growing Parts of the Christian Right Are Convinced It’s the Apocalypse”

If you peruse the list of recent releases in Christian publishing, you’ll get the sense that “the end times” are upon us. This summer saw the release of survival guides, books about current events, and prayer manuals all oriented around a rapture, a second coming of Christ, or an otherwise cataclysmic event at the hands of God. (Subtitles included 12 Megaclues That Jesus’ Return Is Nearer Than Ever; An End Times Guide to Survival; Do Current Events Point to the Antichrist and His Worldwide Empire?; and Prayer Strategies That Unlock the End-Time Armory of God.)

According to Publishers Weekly, this spate of end-times books is being printed to meet demand. It’s what the readers want. (At least some of them; editors at the imprint Harvest Prophecy, which was founded last year, told Publishers Weekly they had seen “a strong surge of interest because there is so much happening in today’s world that parallels End-Times signs given in the Bible.”)

And survey after survey has shown that a surprisingly high percentage of the U.S. population actually believes that Jesus will come back in the relatively near future.

For instance, a survey that was conducted by the Pew Research Center discovered that 41 percent of all Americans believe that Jesus will “definitely” or “probably” return by the year 2050…

By the year 2050, 41% of Americans believe that Jesus Christ definitely (23%) or probably (18%) will have returned to earth. However, a 46%-plurality of the public does not believe Christ will return during the next 40 years. Fully 58% of white evangelical Christians say Christ will return to earth in this period, by far the highest percentage in any religious group. Only about a third of Catholics (32%) and even fewer white mainline Protestants (27%) predict Christ’s return to earth by 2050. One-in-five religiously unaffiliated Americans also see Christ returning during the next four decades.

Many pastors appear to believe that Jesus is coming back soon too.

In fact, a LifeWay survey found that a whopping 56 percent of them “expect Jesus to return in my lifetime”

According to LifeWay, nearly nine out of 10 pastors see at least some current events “matching those Jesus said would occur shortly before He returns to Earth.”

According to the data, 56 percent of pastors either strongly or somewhat agreed with the statement: “I expect Jesus to return in my lifetime.” Twenty-four percent said they were “not sure,” while 20 percent either strongly or somewhat disagreed.

But even though so many of us believe that Jesus is coming back soon, there is so much confusion about what the Bible actually has to say about the “end times”.

I believe that shouldn’t be the case.

What the Bible has to say about most of the major issues related to return of Jesus is actually very clear, and my hope is that my new book entitled “End Times” will clear a lot of the confusion up.

It is so important for all of us to understand the times that we are living in, because God put us here for a reason.

He could have placed us at any time throughout human history, but He deliberately chose to put us at this specific moment.

All of human history has been building up to a grand crescendo, and we get to be here for it.

And God has a specific role for you to play in this drama.

But if you don’t realize what He is trying to do, you could potentially miss out on fulfilling your destiny.

You were born for such a time as this, and my hope is that reading “End Times” will get you extremely excited about God’s purpose for your life in this hour.

Yes, the years ahead are going to be incredibly challenging.

But they can also be the greatest years of your life if you fully embrace what God is trying to do through you.

I have never packed more information into a book.  There are 43 chapters in “End Times”, and it is a much thicker book than the last several that I have put out.

After reading this book, you will have no doubts that we are living in the end times.

I would also encourage you to give this book to family, friends, neighbors and anyone else that you want to wake up.

From this point forward, Bible prophecy will be the number one tool that we have to turn people to Jesus.

Once people realize that many of the things that are happening in the headlines today were foretold in the Scriptures, everything changes.

So please help me get “End Times” into the hands of as many of our fellow citizens as possible.

I also plan to start doing a lot more interviews again.  I want to do whatever I can to help get the end times warning message out.

I believe that we are on the verge of the greatest move of God and the greatest harvest of souls in all of human history.

I want to be part of that.

Don’t you?

We are the Book of Revelation generation, and we get the privilege of preparing the way for the return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

There is no other time in all of human history that I would have rather lived than right now.

If what I am sharing is resonating with your heart, then I encourage you to help me get this message out.

There has never been a time like this before, and there will never be a time like it again.

Our world is about to go through immensely painful years, but it is when times are the darkest that the greatest heroes are needed.

And you can be one of those heroes if you understand what God is trying to do and you fully embrace it.

The “end times” are here, and nothing will ever be the same again.

So rise up and become the person that God created you to be, because now is the time for the people of God to move forward in victory.

Jesus Said — “Many are Called but Few Are Chosen”

Will You Be One of the Many or the Few?

“And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen.” -Matt 22:13-14 (KJV)

When you read the parable of the marriage of the king’s son in Matt 22:1-14, you can’t help but wonder how did the person get into the wedding feast without the proper wedding clothes? Why did his servants let him in? In ancient times when invited to an important wedding the king would provide the proper dress attire which consisted of a particular or special wedding garment. In this parable the man discovered did not have on the proper garment but did you notice that only the king could see it, the servants were not aware that an”intruder” had snuck in.

What a parallel for us today; for all churchgoers in modern times. Many say they are Christians for in saying this their justification consists mainly in their regular church attendance. You know the kind that never misses a Sunday (or Mass), and always seems to be there. To be seen by others as well. Yes sir, many are big on this and friends that is the extent of their relationship with God’s only begotten Son – Jesus Christ. This is their religion.

The man without the proper wedding clothes in the parable decided not to take the proper dress even though it was offered and free.

His presence there was purely rebellious against the awesome authority and power of the inviting king. This man when discovered and confronted was speechless for his improper dress which revealed his sin and therefore judgment was to follow. Folks, this man when discovered by the king, was exposed by his unbelief, rebelliousness and sin and he knew it and that’s why he had nothing to say.

Friends, this parable is a flag waving at those who profess to be Christians but don’t live it. And there are many that fit this mold. They’re big on church going, singing some songs, listening to the words of the sermon but actually their lives are filled with unrepentant sin. Their righteousness in the Lord’s eyes is tarnished for they lack sincerity in confession of their sin, reality in repentance, lack of humility and do not obey the word of the Lord. Now this threads its way deep into our lives – from outward sins to inward – those no one sees but are there nonetheless. From improper motives, to lust, to hate, pride, arrogance, with no sincere desire to have a personal relationship with the Lord. They live according to what they like, to what they want. They are self-righteous wearing the clothes of their hypocrisy.

Listen… many are good people and seem to say the right things and do many nice things but … without the right relationship with the Lord, they have nothing. Nice houses and gobs of money mean nothing in the Lord’s eyes. When you die, it’s gone and the only thing remaining is your standing with God. What’s yours today?


This is huge with Christians today – they have no depth in their spiritual walk with the Lord. Little dedicated and sincere prayer time. No confession of their sin; no Godly sorrow for same. Some religions don’t preach salvation by the grace of God to their people (now this is a tragedy).

God takes a back seat in their lives but oh yes, they spend that hour in the pew every Sunday. In reality, they have no desire to follow and be obedient to Almighty God, instead they do things their way according to their agenda, not God’s. Their righteousness is like filthy rags (Isa 64:6) which translates into improper wedding garments. We may look good on the outside but inside we are naked and shameful based on our unconfessed and unrepentant sin. Many are like this today and will not enter into His rest. Many ‘Christians’ will not know real salvation not because they can’t but because they won’t!!

“But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.” -Rom 13:14 (KJV)

In the Bible, beautiful clothing represents our spiritual relationship with the Lord and this is totally dependent on what we say, think and do. It is also based on our submission to the Lord’s will; knowing and doing what His word says. The Apostle Paul said in Romans 13:14, that we are to put on the Lord Jesus Christ as a garment indicating that we are clothed in His righteousness and justified through our faith in Him. The huge lingering question for all of us is, do we have the correct garments on, are we ready for the wedding feast of the Lamb? And have we arrayed ourselves in the wedding garment of holiness? Will we be counted as the “chosen” that will stay at the wedding feast or be cast out in terrible judgment? Some very sobering words to ponder on today. Please, if you are not sure that you have on the right clothes, seek the Lord now, if you call upon Him in sincerity He will hear and answer your call. 

The bottom-line: are you clothed in His righteousness today through a walking-talking faith and trust in His ultimate sacrifice on the Cross of Calvary? Or are you in rebellion of His authority and majesty, doing your own thing, surrendering and submitting to no one but thriving in your own wisdom and understanding? Remember the Lord’s message to the Laodicean church in Rev 3:17-18, He urges us to obtain clothes from Him to cover the shameful nakedness of our sin. Get them on today!

“I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.” -Rev 3:15-18 (KJV)

Fear the Lord, Tremble at His Presence, and Depart From Evil

Fear ye not me? saith the LORD: will ye not tremble at my presence;” -Jer 5:22 (KJV)

Do you fear God? The Hebrew for the word fear is yir’ah and the meaning is respect, reverence and terror.  In Acts 9:31, the Greek word for fear is phobos meaning fear, dread, or respect for ones husband. From these verses and many others in the OT and NT the fear of God meant great reverence and respect, but also carried a degree of dread and terror that strikes great fear in our hearts – Heb 10:31. For a moment examine yourself to see what things fill you with great fear, reverence and respect. Is it people, money, your home, car, spouse, boss, etc? Does Almighty God have a place on your list and if so, is He at the very top? Number one?

“Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.” – Prov 3:7 (KJV)

Do you as a Christian depart from evil? What does that mean, you may ask? It is not  just a  wordsmith exercise. Nor is it a meaningless array of “religious” thought. This is a command from Almighty God to those that choose to follow Him. It means turning away from vain and profane talk and conversation, it means turning away from vile and filthy TV shows and movies, it means staying away from the R-rated moves, it means turning away from reading worthless and lifeless books that will not draw you closer into the Lord’s presence, etc. What do you do when someone at work or elsewhere tells an dirty joke or makes obscene gestures or comments?  Lord at what Jesus said in Matt 10:28…

“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” -Matt 10:28 (KJV)

Do you think He was just kidding?

Today, I am convinced that we see or hear little of the fear of the Lord in our society, our churches or even our conversations. Combined with this is the lack of the knowledge of God (Hos 4:1) which I am persuaded we see much of these days with a decrease of even professing Christians that do not know their God and His word. If there should be any place on earth that should carry the importance and fear of the Lord it should be in our churches.

But do they … NO!

Years ago, as I grew up, Sunday was a time of attending church, worshiping God and businesses were closed. It was a reverent and sacred time – a time of relaxing and a time to focus on the Lord. I can remember my father reading us Bible stories as a regular part of our family life.

These days, we need to turn the cell phones off, the computers off, silence the video games, turn off the TVs and radios and spend some “alone” time with God – individually and as a family. Do you do these things? Do you really seek Him or do you just pretend  and seeking God is far from your mind?

Nowadays, Sunday is just another day of the week filled people working more and thinking of God less and less. Many churches focus on fast-paced, powerless, diluted Gospel sermonettes laced with an unspoken agenda to get people out in time so they can watch sports, go shopping, eat out, or just have fun. Most churches have become social clubs with little teaching on the Doctrine of God. In fact, even from the pulpit, God is far from their thoughts. What have we become in the eyes of God? Where is the reverence for the Lord, the fear, the desire to worship, praise, talk about Him instead of the regular nit-noid worldly meaningless chatter?

We come before Almighty God for a [whole] whopping hour or so each week to try and keep our eyes propped open and ears keen to hear even the faintest whisper of His Holy Spirit. While in reality our minds haven’t yet ceased from the whirlwind lifestyle we’ve been living throughout the week. So we dose and yawn, with our hearts and minds fighting to maintain some degree of attention on the services we attend. How pathetic! Wake up people! This is Almighty God we are talking about – the Creator of everything you see … of you and me!

Jesus Christ is not our homey. He is not our “buddy”. He is not even a beloved family member. He is God! And as such He deserves great honor, respect, reverence and Glory through our praise and fear of Him with holy living everyday. Yes, it’s a reverent fear but also the fear of His wrath. Please try and keep these things at the forefront of your mind in whatever you say and do.

Everyday we should get on our knees in fear, respect, and yes trembling before the Lord. Read His word people, get to know the God who created you and is coming again!

“The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way,” -Prov 8:13 (KJV)

Do you hate and shun evil? Did you know that God requires this of all of us, a life 100% dedicated, committed and fully surrendered to Him (Rom 12:1)? This means in thought, word and deed. And in our everyday affairs. In how we think and in the words we choose to speak. If you are a person given over to swearing and unclean talk then your religion is worthless – James 1:26 (I know several of these kind of people). Many people watch some pretty nasty stuff on the TV and they read books and magazines that can set their minds against the teachings and commandments of God. But who takes these thing to heart?

Allowing the filth of evil in whatever media form it takes friends is in opposition to will of the God for your life (1 Th 4:1-8; Eph 5:17). When you fill your minds with worldly stuff – cares, concerns, worries, guilt – or flirt with the things not of God, you can take on the nature of those things and open your spirit and soul to evil, wickedness and lawlessness [yes, even demonic] spirits -1 Cor 6:19-20; Rom 8:5, 13:14; Col 3:2, 3:5; Eph 6:12.

If you allow evil into your life/home/family watch out for a serious decline or change in your life and home. You may even start to change what you believe and compromise with the things of this world. Peace may start to elude you both in the spiritual and physical realms. Set your mind on the things above, not on the stuff of this world – Col 3:2.

“Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.” -Psa 2:11 (KJV)

Where are you at with Him right now … saved or not? Do you fear Him? Do you tremble at His word? Do you shun evil? Or do you drag His precious and Holy name through the toxic poison of your speech and the manner in which you live? Remember, there is absolutely no middle of the road or lukewarmness with Almighty God. You must seek the Lord Jesus Christ for only in Him is found eternal life and the saving power to forgive your sins. If you have backslid into a sinful lifestyle or you are not living for Him at all, see the Salvation page at the top of this post to get your life turned around and to seek the free gift of forgiveness of your sins and reap eternal life with Him forever.

Fear God!
