Preparing for the Last Days
The Last Days are here and coming.
You have heard it said many times the end is near.
The end is near but here is some good advice.
Do not run off to the hills and create a survival group because such will be the first group the government rounds up.
Do not store up barrels of food and supplies because when the end time comes you will not be able to use them.
Do not acquire gold coins and silver bullion because so tight will be the money supply that there will be a total strangle-hold on its usage.
In order to survive the Last Days get out among the people in your town or village today with the gospel of Love and Truth while you can because a time is coming when no one will be free to move around.
You have heard that the anti-Christ is coming.
Well, when the anti-Christ arrives on the scene no one will escape his grasp for he will rule with an iron scepter
You think the government is out of control now but it is nothing like the fast approaching government arriving at your door step in the Last Days.
‘The world ruler will rule them with an iron scepter; he will dash them to pieces like pottery’ — Revelation 2:27
Prepare yourself now to know and stand for Love and Truth no matter the cost.
After all, if you cannot stand today when things are easy you will not be able to survive the Last Days.
No one who claims to be a Christian will be able to say they were not warned.
At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. (Matthew 24:10-13)
Let God teach you to deny yourself with joy now because when the final push toward the end comes upon the whole world a great testing awaits those who claim to be Christian.
Use all of your earthly wealth now to store up treasures in heaven because when the anti-Christ comes everyone’s money will be worthless.
Obey Jesus in this matter of worldly wealth today so that you will be able to obey God in the Last Days.
Jesus said I tell you, use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves, so that when it is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings. Luke 16:9
Toward the end time no Christian will be able to earn, spend or give money away because the government will control 100% of the money supply.
He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. (Revelation 13:16-17)
When you see individuals attempting to prepare for the Last Days by going out to survive the apocalypse these are echoes of what Jesus warned individuals not to do.
“So if anyone tells you, ‘There this leader is, out in the desert,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. (Matthew 24:26)
Jesus said, do not go out to try and save yourself during an economic collapse.
Jesus warned, do not believe some inner room or doomsday shelter will enable you to survive the collapse of anything coming upon this world.
When God says iron scepter He means just that an iron scepter.
Indeed, all who desire to protect their lives will lose them.
All who make efforts to save themselves are doomed to utter failure.
Jesus taught: For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me and for the gospel will save it. (Mark 8:35)
It is very permissible to be prepared for a short-term disaster in order to help others.
The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it. Proverbs 27:12
It is A-Okay to be a prudent individual for the noble goal of helping those in need.
So prepare yourself with wisdom for short-term disasters and the Last days.
Back to our topic of the end times.
Three things must be in place to survive the Last Days.
1. A solid love for a holy God.
The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. (John 12:25)
2. A willingness to stand for the Truth no matter the cost.
The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness. (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12)
Whoa, hold them horses …did you catch that? For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion… (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12)
Many a last days scholar, author and Bible studier will believe the Last Days lie because God will make them believe it.
Many claiming to be a Christian, but are cold, lukewarm or 3/4s hot will accept the Last Days Lie and follow the anti-Christ because God will rightly repay them for living a lie about their surrender to His Son Jesus.
Their claim to have surrendered all to God was a lie, so God in return will give them The Lie to believe.
3. A perseverance that is God-inspired to face hardship.
May the Lord direct your hearts into God’s love and Christ’s perseverance. (2 Thessalonians 3:5)
Best thing to do is practice these 3 things today, now, this hour, because a time is coming when everyone who is not a true Christian will hate you.
Learning today to love those who hate you is of paramount importance because only those who in the face of the fact the whole world hates them still love till the end are worthy of heaven.
All men will hate you because of me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. (Mark 13:13)
So tough, so clear and powerful will be the coming struggle in the Last Days that even those chosen by God would be deceived by lies so stop running off here and there to survive the Last Days.
Stop buying up supplies, gold and silver to go through the Last Days because all such things will be utterly worthless.
For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and miracles to deceive the elect–if that were possible. (Mark 13:22)

Because Jesus Said “Sit Down”
