For the most part, end times man is hopelessly deceived.
Because end times man (for the most part) is hopelessly deceived, when Satan and his workers of iniquity order end times man to get in line and do what he is told, end times man will almost always obey Satan and his workers of iniquity–ESPECIALLY if they are well-dressed, smile and represent the authorities.
End times man may grumble a bit.
End times man may anxiously glance at his watch to express his impatience with the entire process.
End times man may be vocal in his desire to get out of line and commence ‘living his life.’
BUT, the important thing to remember: end times man WILL be standing in Satan’s line, waiting for his turn to do Satan’s work.
“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
DOES the reader ever think that IF the reader is alive, the reader WILL obey Satan–or die?
It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?
THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
