And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. Luke 21:34-36
If you listen to the people who claim to be prophets of God, most are telling us that God is getting ready to bring a massive revival upon the earth, and that we have a very long time before the Lord returns. We are being told that the church has already repented, prayed, and God is about to move.
The Lord can do anything He wants, and I would welcome a revival, because I want to see as many souls saved as possible before Jesus returns, but I see no evidence that any of this is true. To the contrary, all I see is evil increasing, and a falling away taking place, at least with regard to the true message of the gospel.
The prophets of today are telling us that God is going to restore Trump as President, and this will usher in a restoration of America. They are also claiming that there will be a complete end to the corona virus. The Bible says that if a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, and what they say does not happen, they are false. There is no reason to believe that anything they say is right.
I do believe that the Lord is speaking to His church, and I do believe that if we will trust in Him, we will see a great salvation take place. I do believe He will protect His children that faithfully serve Him, but what will that salvation be? Will it be, as the prophets of today are saying, that Trump will be put back in a President and the corona virus will be gone? Will it be a great awakening and massive revival that will continue for decades, or will this salvation be Jesus coming for His church and rescuing them? I believe it is most likely it will be the latter.
We are warned in the Bible of a last days deception where if it were possible, the very elect would be deceived. We need to take that warning serious. We have nothing to fear from world events, including the corona virus, if we are walking with Jesus, because He will protect our soul. The Bible says we are not to fear those that can kill the body, but we are to fear the one that can destroy the soul and send it to an eternal punishment. That is speaking of Jesus Christ. Walk closely with Jesus. If you have sin in your life, confess it and repent today, and then stand back and see the salvation of the Lord in your life. Do not place your hopes in men, but in God.
