This Crisis Will Pale in Comparison to What's Coming

We are living in unprecedented times, experiencing things that none of us -- not even the elderly -- have seen in our lifetimes. There is the coronavirus pandemic with it's sickness, death, food and supply shortages, and draconian measures being taken by the government to contain it. There are also other end time plagues that have been happening around the world, as well as the worldwide economic turmoil.

Life as we once knew it has been transformed into what many are now calling the "new normal". The world as you knew it is over. TruNews reported that "National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Disease Dr. Tony Fauci has warned that the world may never 'get back to normal' after the coronavirus pandemic."

Just when you felt like you've had enough of this chaos, and you thought it couldn't get any worse, all of this will pale in comparison to what is yet to come upon the earth. Let me show you what the Scriptures say. For example, the prophet Amos said:

"Woe to you who long for the day of the LORD! Why do you long for the day of the LORD? That day will be darkness, not light. It will be as though a man fled from a lion only to meet a bear, as though he entered his house and rested his hand on the wall only to have a snake bite him. Will not the day of the LORD be darkness, not light— pitch-dark, without a ray of brightness?" (Amo 5:18-20).

That's what I mean when I say it is going to get worse. It will be as though a man fled from a lion only to meet a bear, as though he entered his house and rested his hand on the wall only to have a snake bite him. Amos went on to say:

"I saw the Lord standing by the altar, and He said: 'Strike the tops of the pillars so that the thresholds shake. Bring them down on the heads of all the people; those who are left I will kill with the sword. Not one will get away, none will escape. Though they dig down to the depths below, from there my hand will take them. Though they climb up to the heavens above, from there I will bring them down. Though they hide themselves on the top of Carmel, there I will hunt them down and seize them. Though they hide from my eyes at the bottom of the sea, there I will command the serpent to bite them. Though they are driven into exile by their enemies, there I will command the sword to slay them. 'I will keep my eye on them for harm and not for good.'" (Amo 9:1-4)

Now is the time to seek the Lord and give Him glory, as the prophet Jeremiah said:

Give glory to the Lord your God
    before he brings the darkness,
before your feet stumble
    on the darkening hills.
You hope for light,
    but he will turn it to utter darkness
    and change it to deep gloom.  (Jer 13:16)

Closing Words
There is no escape from the judgment of God that is coming. Some of the things you can expect to see next are a military invasion of America, as well as World War III. There will also be more cataclysms as the Scriptures clearly said must happen (Mt 24:7; Lk 21:9-11), such as famines, asteroids, tsunamis, a shifting of the earth's magnetic poles, power outages, and more. We are now entering the time of great shaking, when God is shaking everything that can be shaken. These are all signs of the times. Jesus Christ is coming back very, very soon.

The only answer is to turn back to God in repentance, stop doing the things of the world, pray and ask God to forgive you, putting your faith in Jesus to save you. Whether you already know the Lord or not, this is what you should do. Those of us who know Him should repent daily and ask Him to purify our hearts, removing everything from us that is displeasing to Him, and make us ready for the rapture. Only the blood of Jesus can protect us from the wrath of God and save us.

Soon we will see Him coming in the clouds and only the holy will be caught up to meet Him there. He is coming for a Bride that has made herself ready, who is without spot or wrinkle. Pray the Holy Spirit would fill your extra flask with oil, as the five wise virgins did (Matt 25:4). Always be on the watch. Pray that you will be able to stand before the Son of Man when He comes and escape all these things that are coming to pass (Lk 21:36). May we all be counted worthy when He comes. Those who miss it will be left behind to go through the Great Tribulation, which will be like hell on earth. That's why I am writing to you this message to help you get ready before it's too late.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
