You Ready? I doubt it...

“The heart is more deceitful than all else And is desperately sick; Who can understand it? “I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give to each man according to his ways, According to the results of his deeds." Jeremiah 17:9-10 NASB
It's a horrible thing to look at both those who claim to be Christian's and those who aren't and see more similarities than are found between those who claim the name of Jesus Christ as their Savior and those claiming to be Christian's.
It's equally horrific that these who get up on a soapbox to condemn Christians are mostly those who say they are, yet aren't living it themselves. They are showing more support for the author of death than they are the Prince of Life. People who are calling themselves Christian's yet support abortion are people who are supporting Satan's agenda. Jesus says that Satan is the destroyer. It's not just ideals of Christianity that Satan's out to destroy, but life. Physical life.
It's horrifying to see this world being transformed before my eyes to promote and support the existence of Satan and see all the attempts and attacks to silence Christ. Ironically people cry out for evidence of God, of Jesus, yet cannot see that the widespread denial is that very evidence that Jesus said would be happening when He returns.
This world was never "ready" for what hit it globally in the last few years.
This world will, at some point, face far more severe things. They will see global earthquakes. They will see famines on a global scale. They will see 100 lb hail from the Heavens. They will see all vegetation wiped out. Water made undrinkable everywhere. Millions of ships at sea dead in the water or sunk. The economy, globally, transformed and connected to worship of a global leader.
People, listen well, and understand. You are among those who are still digesting how the last several years came about. You, if your faith and trust isn't in Jesus Christ alone for salvation, will face those other things that were mentioned.
It's a certainty that Jesus is returning.
it's a certainty that most all the prophecies of the Bible have come true.
It's a certainty that the rest WILL come true.
3 or so BILLION people will be dying early on after Jesus Christ returns to take His Church from this world. That's impossible! You might be thinking. Really? Isn't what you've been granted the ability to live through in the last 3 years supposed to have been impossible too?
Do the math. Google, at this point, says that the world population is "The projected world population on Jan. 1, 2022 is 7,868,872,451". What's one third of that? 2.5 billion will die if the Rapture happens soon in the days to follow that.
Jesus isn't willing that any should perish but that all would come to Him for salvation. That's why it's not happened yet.
Everyone, within the confines and context of the Scriptures, is and will be given the opportunity to come to Christ for salvation. But. Yes there IS a but. The Father's set a "enough is enough" day. A day when Jesus will get up from His Throne to call all who have been and who are saved in Christ Jesus to come up to Him and return to Heaven with Him.
My friend, wherever you are in this world, please don't put it off any longer. Jesus is in the lifeboat, with His arms extended, imploring you to come to Him to be saved, to be pulled out of the sentence of death that awaits you.
Look at your thoughts about life and death. Look at the fruits of your life and mind. Are you among those who are living a life that supports life and hope in Christ or are you supporting the author of death? Are you among those devaluing life to appease your sin? The Author of Life doesn't need to speak directly to abortion. He says plenty about when, how and where life begins. It's not surprising that those who support this murder of children support other sins and sinful lifestyles.

"What God's Word Says About Abortion
By Lynn Copeland
Pro-abortionists try to “dehumanize” unborn children by referring to them as merely “lumps of tissue” or “products of conception”; however, biblically, as well as biologically, you and I are unique human beings from the moment of conception. The result of conception (the “product” that is conceived) is known as a baby, as Scripture (and science) tells us:
“The babies jostled each other within her.” (Genesis 25:22)
“When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb.” (Luke 1:41)
Some abortion supporters go so far as to claim that early religions did not bar abortion—a claim that is contrary to the truth. God speaks very clearly on the value of the unborn in the Scriptures, the basis for both the Jewish and Christian faiths.
Each Life Is of Value
God’s Word says that He personally made each one of us, and has a plan for each life: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.” (Jeremiah 1:5)
For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb…Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be. (Psalm 139:13,16)
“Your hands shaped me and made me . . . Did You not clothe me with skin and flesh and knit me together with bones and sinews? You gave me life.” (Job 10:8–12)
This is what the Lord says—He who made you, who formed you in the womb. (Isaiah 44:2)
“Did not He who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same One form us both within our mothers?” (Job 31:15)
Because man is made in God’s own image (Genesis 1:27), each life is of great value to God: “Children are a gift from God” (Psalm 127:3). He even calls our children His own: “You took your sons and daughters whom you bore to Me and sacrificed them…You slaughtered My children” (Ezekiel 16:20,21).
Taking Innocent Life Is Murder
The Bible says of our Creator, “In His hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of every human being” (Job 12:10). God, the giver of life, commands us not to take the life of an innocent person: “Do not shed innocent blood” (Jeremiah 7:6), and He warns us, “Cursed is the man who accepts a bribe to kill an innocent person” (Deuteronomy 27:25). The Sixth Commandment, written in stone by the finger of God, commands, “You shall not murder” (Exodus 20:13).
The unborn baby is undeniably alive and growing, and taking its life is clearly murder, as the prophet Jeremiah points out: “He did not kill me in the womb, with my mother as my grave” (Jeremiah 20:17). God vowed to punish those who “ripped open the women with child” (Amos 1:13). In ancient Israel, the unborn child was granted equal protection in the law; if he lost his life, the one who caused his death must lose his own life: “If men who are fighting hit a pregnant woman and she gives birth prematurely but there is no serious injury, the offender must be fined . . .But if there is serious injury, you are to take life for life” (Exodus 21:22,23).
According to the Scriptures, God, Jews, and Christians unanimously agree: Life is a gift created by God, and is not to be taken away by abortion. God is “pro-choice,” but He tells us clearly the only acceptable choice to make:
“I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.” (Deuteronomy 30:19)"
Who's side are you on?
Who are you, in living your life, with the choices and decisions you make, are you proving exists? Jesus Christ or Satan?
Are you living outside of salvation in Christ Jesus? It's time to stop running. It's time to face the truth rather than trying to push it away.
When there is a court of law, and after the Rapture there is evidence there will be, to convict and sentence people to death for worshiping Christ Jesus to death...would you be? In Romans 12 we read about life that is transformed in Christ Jesus. In Ephesians we read of being His workmanship. Does His workmanship show in your life?
This is your reality check that's happening.
This is for you to finally be serious about your here and now, as well as your future.
World leaders who call for the silence of Christianity show who's side they are on.
People who show an utter disregard for life show who's side they are on.
People who show a love for lifestyles that aren't Biblically based show who's side they are on.
The Bible explicitly says to love not the world nor the things of this world. To embrace the world is to be against God’s Word.
My Friend, I do not want any who read this to wake up in Hell because you chose to not come to Christ for salvation. I implore you to really think about these things.
Heaven or Hell is a heartbeat away for all of us. Your very heartbeat is a gift from the Author of Life. Choose wisely, choose well.
