End Of Time

Daily Devotions: by Christina Farris

Matthew 24:1-13 KJV
(1) And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
(2) And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
(3) And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
(4) And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
(5) For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
(6) And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
(7) For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
(8) All these are the beginning of sorrows.
(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.
(10) And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
(11) And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
(12) And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
(13) But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Do you wonder about when Christ will come? Do you wonder about prophecy of floods and wars and so forth from news and gathers in public and private squares of our world. Even government rulers no the rumors of war as will as the poor man on the city streets. The talk of war is like a plague when a country becomes angry with its leaders. War comes because of disagreement and the refusal of communication, instead uprisings and riots begin. My own nation has seen protest and angry people doing things unspeakable in recent years and even the last few weeks. When cops have to worry people killing them and people have to worry about cops being abusive, then one has to ask, what is going on in our nation, when our government can not hold to their own laws and they have to fight dirty against ďtheir peopleď. As news media a few years back reported on US involvement in 911 one really had to ask what is going on. Yep republicans were in office, but it did not mean they were ones involved. Yet republicans were known for selling arms to the enemy. My conclusion to the issue, is who knew what and when is the question, was it spy technology that gave them information they could not decipher fast enough. Is that why big brother is saying no I will no longer help the government with out a warrant. As we continue to watch our own government shoot itself in the foot, we have to ask, well time change. Not really there always be rumors and false information given due to rumors, yet Godís word will remain to be true. Jesus said these things would be happening and no doubt what he declared was happening in his world as well.

Jesus warns against the false prophets of our world and some setting themselves up to try and be God, only to fail. How much does our government spend on false prophets of the techno age. What would the idols of yesteryear say concerning the technology of this world. Some gurus would say they only need their false prophets or informants for information. Yet the power of the Holy Spirit out trumps any techno gadget. Has the world relies on the technology to prove crimes and chase cars by what they see and not preceive, someone will individually will even be falsely accused by these gadgets and already are in some cases. The cameraís are made to lie, but the ability to make people look like someone else and follow them is real. You ever see your double you know the possibilities of crime is endless. Make up artist on demand by crooks and thieves of identity. Sounds like a world of tv land.

The point to my madness is to show things are going to come and go that will deceive our world. Godís power is power that can only be proven by the Spirit of God to the individual. The power of the Holy Spirit comes with knowledge of Godís word and the truth retained in it. The Holy Spirit needs not for you to read Godís word but to obey His voice and know his power. One reads Godís word to confirm that it is God. Yet the destruction of Godís world remains in our world and Godís Spirit always wins. The point of the madness if you see crazy things in our world happening, do not rely on them but on the Spirit of God to enable you to get through the maze of life and keep you in the place God has called you too.

Dear Heavenly Father remind the believer daily of your power by your Spirit tell it time for your Son to return. That the beleiver be not deceived by the lies of this world, but hear and bear all truth of who you are. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
