The end is near!

The end is near!1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets have gone out into the world.Matthew 24:4-51 "V-4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man engañe.V-5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am the Christ, 'and will deceive many. V-6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled, because you need all these things, but the end is not yet. V-7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. V-8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. V-9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. V-10 Many will fall away and will betray one another, and shall hate one another. V-11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many V-12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many will grow cold. V-13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. V-14 And this gospel of the kingdom in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then shall the end come. V-15 So when you see standing in the holy place 'the abomination of desolation, spoken of by the prophet Daniel (let the reader understand), V-16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. V-17 which is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house and the V-18 that is in the field return back to take his cloak. V-19 But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! V-20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day; V-21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever shall be. V-22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. V-23 Then if anyone says to you, Lo, here is Christ, or 'There He is,' do not believe. V-24 ​​For false Christs and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. V-25 As I have told you before. V-26 So if anyone tells you, is in the desert, go not forth, behold, he is in the secret chambers, believe it not. V-27 For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man. V-28 For wheresoever the carcass is, there the vultures will gather. V-29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven shall be shaken. V-30 Then the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth will see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. V-31 And he shall send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. V-32 From the fig tree learn its lesson: When his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, ye know that summer is near. V-33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, at the doors. V-34 Verily I say unto you, this generation will not pass away until all these things. V-35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words shall not pass. V-36 But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but my Father only. V-37 But as the days of Noah, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man. V-38 For as in the days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, V-39 And knew not until the flood came and took them all so shall also the coming of the Son of Man. V-40 Then shall two be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. V-41 Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. V-42 Watch therefore, for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. V-43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, watched, and not allowed his house. V-44 Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an unexpected hour. V-45 Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his lord over his household, to give them meat in due season? V-46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. V-47 Truly I tell you about all of your assets you will. V-48 But if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delays his coming, V-49 and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards, V-50 the lord of that servant in a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know, V-51 and him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. "
The Bible says that the ministry of the Christian Church will end when we least expect. When we are more confident. The end came suddenly, as when a thief surprising night (I Thessalonians 5:2 "For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night") Jesus told his disciples that day approached when he would not be among them, who would go to the Father. His disciples asked him to take them with him but Jesus said that wherever he went, they could not follow him, but I explained that it was going to prepare a place for us all. (John 14: 2-6) "V-2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you I am going there to prepare a place for you. V-3 And if I go and prepare a place, I will come again, and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there you may be also. V-4 And whither I go, and you know the way. V-5 Thomas said to him: Lord, we do not know where you are going, so how can we know the way? V-6 Jesus said I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me "For where he is, we also are.
Jesus said, "I'll go, but I will return." Two millennia have passed since the apostles witnessed the ascension of Jesus and even today, still has not returned. But Peter says not impacientemos, or think that the Lord is taking. (2 Peter 3:8-14 "V-8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day. V-9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. V-10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be dissolved, and the earth and the works that are therein shall be burned up. V-11 Since all these things shall be dissolved, what ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, V-12 waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements being on fire, will melt! V-13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and earth new, in which righteousness dwells. V-14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent to be found by him without spot, and blameless in peace ") because He will return in due time. Remember, our time is not God's timing. The Bible says that "a thousand years is like a day before God." (2 Peter 3:8) Jesus will return soon and according to the prophecies, the end of human history, is approaching. All current events point to the: THE SECOND COMING. Uses three Greek words.1. Parousia (presence, 1 Thessalonians 3:13) "that may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints."2. Apokalypsis (REVELATION, 2 Thessalonians 1:7, 8) "V-7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, V-8 in flaming fire , taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ "and3. Epiphaneia (appearance, 2 Thessalonians 2:8) "And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming."RETURN FOR PERSONAL, VISIBLE AND GLORIOUS JESUS(Matthew 24:30) "And two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried, saying, Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!"(Acts 1:11) "Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come as you saw him go into heaven ";(Acts 3:19-21) "V-19 Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, to come to the Lord's presence snack time, V-20 and he shall send Jesus Christ, which I was foretold, V-21 who need to give certain heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of his holy prophets since the world began. "(Philippians 3:20) "For our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ."
Unfortunately many churches no longer preach sound doctrine of the second coming. It seems as if nobody wants the return of the Lord. Hardly anyone is waiting for Jesus. Hardly anyone shouts "yes, come Lord Jesus!" John the Apostle at the end of Revelation cry from the depths of his heart, yes, come Lord Jesus! "Rev 22:20 He who testifies to these things says, Surely I come quickly. Amen so, come, Lord Jesus. "
The return of the Lord implies two things: the glorification of the faithful and the trial and condemnation of the wicked. Because it is clear that Christ will return to destroy the enemies of God and followers of the devil, that old serpent called Satan, or Lucifer.
The problem of the church today is that, after two thousand years, we have almost forgotten that we live in expectation of Jesus' return, but it seems as if we are no longer interested. We live very comfortable in our homes. We conform to the customs of this world, (Romans 12:2 "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good will of God, and perfect.) We have assimilated the dominant culture and have abandoned the life of holiness.
Today's message that the Church urges us to fight for SOUND DOCTRINE OF CHRIST (2Jn 1:9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God: he that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son). We should always live alerts, the slope of the return of Jesus Christ. That not surprising arrival wasting time on our selfish interests. The emphasis of this message is to remember that Jesus Christ will return. We are prepared for the sudden return of our Lord. For the Lord will return in the blink of an eye, at the sound of the trumpet. That day, the eternal plan of salvation will be consummated and the dreaded "end of the world."
Studying the Scriptures I realize that we are living in the last days of this present evil. The return of Jesus Christ is coming and with its arrival, the judgment of the nations. Woe to those who are unaware, unprepared to receive him because his end will be disastrous. The Bible says that in that day, "will be weeping and gnashing of teeth."
The disciples asked, Sir, when will be the time of your return? Jesus answered them: when they saw the signs. No one knows when the Lord will return. Jesus himself did not know. Not even the angels know the day or the hour. Only God in His infinite omniscience, knows the end time. Jesus warned us that when we see the signs, have sense enough to reflect and repent of our sins before it is too late. Do not make the same mistake of the five foolish virgins, who were searching late oil for their lamps. And when the Lord, were not there to receive him and closed the door and stayed outside. (Matthew 25:1-13) Brethren, the Lord's return is coming and the church must learn to read "the writing on the wall" (Daniel5 :7,8,15-17) learn to interpret the prophetic signs of the Bible :
There will be signs in the sky, the sea, the moon and the stars we announced that the end is near! (Luke 21:25) "And there shall be signs in the sun, moon and stars, and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves".
When we talk about peace and all I have are wars, The end is near! (Revelation 6:4) "And there went out another horse that was red: and its rider was given power to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given a great sword."When mankind reaches its limit moral and spiritual corruption, the end is near!
When people marveled, tricked go after witchcraft, sorcery, and divination, the end is near!
When the voice of antichrist is heard around the world, more strongly than that of the church, the end is near!
When the immorality of humanity reaches its peak and the man loses his moral and spiritual values, abandoning their natural kinds of men and women and delivered to homosexuality, then the end is near!
When the abomination walks through the doors of the church and as a result, loses his cool and authority over the people, the end is near!
When most Christians fall away from their faith and heresy is part of the Christian movement, careful because the end is near!
When we see that in the nations of the world, establishing laws that do not honor or respect to God, the end is near!
The Apostle Paul says in Romans 8.21 "that the creation itself will be liberated from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God" that nature groans with deafening screams, begging to be freed from the curse that Adam suffers from sin. According to the Book of Revelation, when we look around the world to earthquakes, hurricanes like last year, volcanic explosion, sea spewing their dead, flooding, drastic climate changes, the end is near!
The scriptures teach us that when this happens, it's like a warning that the Lord is at hand, and we must repent. We must seek forgiveness from God and let Christ take control of our lives. To protect us from the wrath to come. Let's make sure our name is written in the book of life.
Jesus told His disciples that the signals are clear before the end, as when the fig tree sprouts, we know that summer is near. Just as when the trees lose their leaves, we know that autumn is coming. Similarly, when we see all these things happening around us, we can be assured that the end is near.
The church must be prepared! We must be on our guard, lest we run out of the kingdom of heaven. Frankly, many churches are unaware, we are not prepared for the coming of the Lord. We still have much to endure the great tribulation that will come upon the earth. The Revelation mentions that trials will come upon mankind to torment and make up his faith before the end.
When we see all this, and if we are not prepared spiritually, and we have Christ in our hearts, care. Because the punishment of Righteous Judge is at the door.That day, many would rather die or the earth swallow them. For sinners, best would hang a millstone on the neck and jump into the seabed.
Will want the damned, who fall into the hands of the living God. That day, people tried to flee from the presence of God but it is impossible, it will be too late to repent and ask for forgiveness.
The history of salvation had its beginning and will have an end. As well as the reign of the Messiah had its beginning and will have an end. The Bible helps us study the prophecies pointing to the history of salvation.The Epistle to the Hebrews says that Jesus, our High Priest, died for our sins and ascended to heaven to intercede for us with his blood on their hands as an offering acceptable to God. Jesus was crowned by God and given the title of Lord, the righteous Judge, King of Kings and sole authority over the universe.The Bible says that "there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved." (Acts 4:12)
In Christ, we have eternal life. The reign of Christ was established with his birth, death and resurrection. The consummation of his reign will be the day of his return. Completed under the absolute control of the Lord. The Son of Man will destroy the enemy of God, the Beast, the Antichrist. We remove all to hell and the lake of fire launch where it will be their final destination. That day, Jesus will judge all the evil that followed.
I pray that today, we are prepared, alert, aware that we all already are warning signs that the Lord's coming is closer than we think. That when the Lord returns will not surprise us, because we are living each day as if today was your appearance. Always on the lookout for his return. Waiting for the Lord not with fear but with joy, confidence and see his face and rejoice in his presence. I pray with all my heart to say: Yes, come Lord Jesus!
