For almost two thousand years, faithful followers of Jesus Christ have been in anticipation of his Second Coming. We are living at extremely exciting times as our Preaching Work comes to its end! According to Bible Prophecy, an allotment of two days of 2,000 years would need to lapse before the Second Coming is revealed to onlookers. (Hosea 6:2, 2 Peter 3:8) We still do not know the hour or day, but the season is here!! If only you would pay attention, listen, and gain the understanding to keep on living into Christ's Millennial Reign... "Do not think I came to bring peace to the earth; I came to bring, not peace, but a sword." (Matthew 10:34)
Even though the Second Coming will be Invisible to the human eye, faithful followers will perceive when Jesus brings the sword to the unfaithful and opposition of God's Kingdom. One more 'timed event' or prophecy will be fulfilled prior to the destruction of the wicked. Satan and his earthly kingdoms are entering their last phase spewing demonic propaganda that they brought peace and prosperity to the earth, and the majority of the earth's population will be more than willing to capitulate. "Whenever it is that they are saying, “Peace and security!” then sudden destruction is to be instantly on them, just like birth pains on a pregnant woman, and they will by no means escape." (1 Thessalonians 5:3)
"Nevertheless, when the Son of man arrives, will he really find this faith on the earth?" (Luke 18:8) It's imperative to build your faith now because the trigger for the Great Tribulation is an outbreak of peace. When Satan's world promotes that they achieved peace and prosperity, people no longer will have to follow rules. No need to work. No need to pray. Government is your god providing your wants and needs. Notice this divine warning from Jesus Christ. Then he said to them: “Keep your eyes open and guard against every sort of greed, because even when a person has an abundance, his life does not result from the things he possesses.” (Luke 12:15)
It's during this respite of peace when Jesus separates the sheep from the goats. "When the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit down on his glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate people one from another, just as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And he will put the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on his left." (Matthew 25:31-33) The sheep will gradually grow to perfection as they outlive the goats coming out of the Great Tribulation.
The goats are stubborn and want to go their own way, not willing to submit to Jehovah's Kingdom. Therefore, the blessings of God's Kingdom are not extended to them. The death they die is a permanent one symbolizing everlasting destruction as in being struck with the sword. The sheep humbly submit to Jehovah's Kingdom and they turn their backs on Satan's system of things. Matter of fact, it will take faith, for refusing Satan will bear tribulation for them. "Nobody can buy or sell except a person having the mark, the name of the wild beast or the number of its name." (Rev 13:17)
Learning these things now can help you prepare for the coming events. It will take faith, but there is hope! Start preparing your heart and mind and apply the counsel from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ: "No one can slave for two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will stick to the one and despise the other. You cannot slave for God and for Riches. “On this account I say to you: Stop being anxious about your lives as to what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your bodies as to what you will wear. Does not life mean more than food and the body than clothing? Observe intently the birds of heaven; they do not sow seed or reap or gather into storehouses, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth more than they are?" (Matthew 6:24-26)
"Who of you by being anxious can add one cubit to his life span?" (Matthew 6:27)
"So never be anxious and say, ‘What are we to eat?’ or, ‘What are we to drink?’ or, ‘What are we to wear?’ For all these are the things the nations are eagerly pursuing. Your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. “Keep on, then, seeking first the Kingdom and his righteousness, and all these other things will be added to you." (Matthew 6:31-33)
