Economic times seem to be booming within America and throughout the world as business continue to grow at rapid rates and spending is on a roll. Even though there are rumors of war, famines throughout the world and climate change and earthquakes increasing, there are still many who are claiming peace and security. But, although there is much prosperity at the moment, let us not fall asleep as many do and have and always remain watchful.
“For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.”
I Thessalonians 5:3-8 NKJV
We are in times of turmoil regardless of the prosperity as the world is on the brinks of collapse economically, environmentally, and governmentally. The world has entered a time of either reconstructing it’s entire infrastructure or becoming extinct. At this very moment that is exactly what the UN is trying to accomplish through the it’s Agenda 2030. Overtime the world will need to enter a complete unified system under a one world government or face self destruction.
Where I am trying to go with this is that many and most people that I have talked to over the recent year have no idea of this agenda or many of the problems facing our world. Most are basking in the glory of prosperity and the current false sense of peace that alludes us into thinking all is well. There are even many people that claim to be Christian that don’t even know about the technological advancements of a cashless society and one world currency, and when told about these things believe it to be a good thing.
We are told specifically to stay awake and to be watchful and to pay attention to the signs of the times. The devil wants us asleep, he wants us to become blind to what is going on and instead enjoy the riches and to be more concerned about what Trump said or what the Kardashians are doing than what is really going on. Keep people tranquil and confused and they will never know what hit them.
Now, at the same time I’m not saying that we live a life rooted in fear and worry and become a doomsday shelter dweller by no means. But I am saying that we should be watchful and alert to what is going on and tell others about Christ and the coming tribulation before it’s too late. While at the same time we should try and enjoy The blessings of God and to continue living and supporting our families. It is finding the fine balancing to all things. It is being watchful while trusting the Lord. It is telling others while not becoming too engulfed in what is going on.
We are inching ever closer to the last days and we should be awake to what is going on while always remaining level headed in due process. We must always keep the Lord as God in our life and to not allow circumstances to rule us. Balance is key and remaining awake is our purpose.
