Being how as of recent there was a prediction made by a Christian radio host that stated the Rapture and Judgment Day would take place on May 21, 2011 but yet did not happen. Immediately, it was put upon my spirit to post this written word I wrote years ago in response to this exact thing. Please read the not only poem but also the end.
END OF THE WORLD
Is it the end of the world?
“Well, it should be
The ending of us doing those things we know we ought not to be
Now, if it were the end of the world,
Would you be progressively moving forward or stuck?
I mean, if it were the end,
Would that bring about change in your behavior?
Would you really let go of your will,
Christ as your personal Lord and Savior?
If you would, then being the end of the world
Wouldn’t be such a bad thing,
Well, because out of it all,
Ultimately your soul would be saved,
Saved from hell
And in heaven be written your name
Now back to the original question you asked,
Is it the end?
Well, God’s word tells us no man knows the hour nor the day
But we all should be living as though it were, our last anyway
Not having a relationship with the son of the living God,
And or saying, we have already accepted Jesus
But yet, are still doing our own thing while not submitting to His will as it pertains to Holiness
Will only leave us with grief, fear and anxiety
For the reason being, it if were the end,
We’d know, next would come God’s judgment
Therefore, let’s just treat it as though it were
So today, we all can repent, meaning ask for forgiveness
And thus, can have peace at the lord’s coming instead of torment
Isaiah 55:6, ROMANS 10:9, JOHN 3:6
Due to the prediction I mentioned in the beginning of this post most of the world was in a complete frenzy, for I even got calls from love ones questioning if I believed in the prediction and not only was my response in just what this poem reveals, but also what the Lord revealed to me is that the main reason why the world as well, as some within the church was left in such a state of confusion and wondering if this man was really right was because they did not know the word of God. And so, now I can clearly see in a greater way the truth in Matthew 24:24 which reads: For false Christ’s and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.
People of God, we must not be like those in the world tossed to and fro by man’s predictions but we should be stayed firm upon the Rock of Jesus and the word of God able to bring about Gods truth in the midst of confusion that should ultimately draw sinners to Christ. It’s my prayer we all prepare in a greater way because, this was just a taste of what is soon to come in a mass amount and the question is, will we be ready for the calls and inquiries that will come to us in others fear.
2 Peter 3:2-10 tells us so much for it reads: that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, 3 knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, 4 and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” 5 For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, 6 by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. 7 But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 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. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night…
