Downward Spiral to Judgement

The break neck speed of world events is beyond the comprehension of man.  The acceleration, since the last Blood Moon is staggering and those with eyes to see are dizzy with the warning of it.  Like an evil funnel, the closer we get to the bottom the faster the time between catastrophes and the severity thereof.  Let no man deceive you, we are on the precipice of judgement.

Downward Spiral of World Events
For the born again believer, these are exciting times for they signal the soon return of the Lord Jesus Christ.  These are fearsome times for the rest of humanity; right at the door, destruction draws nigh.  This downward spiral is a warning, a harbinger of judgement that will befall the world, and individual man.

God is merciful and it is His wish that no one should perish that all would come to faith in His Son and have ever lasting life but I have to tell you that He is also a God of utter righteousness.  He is fearsome to behold, He is a God of Wrath, and a perfect Judge.  In the Days of the Gospel of Love we have failed to understand or to teach that falling into the hands of the Living God without the covering of the Son's Blood is a terrible thing.

We have failed to tell unbelievers that they are enemies of God (Romans 5:10) and we fail to tell them that their eternal fate is choosing to send themselves to Hell.  In our desire to woo them into the Kingdom we neglect the Outer Darkness, we have to warn not just woo.

What is Hell? (source)

I beg of you, if you are reading this to the end, the Spirit of God is calling you, this may be your last chance.  Do not harden your heart, for you are not promised another breath.  Say this prayer, "Heavenly Father, I am a sinner, I know that outside of you I am bound for hell.  Please save me Lord.  You said that any that believes and calls on the name of Jesus shall not be forsaken.  I believe in your Son Jesus Christ, who was sacrificed for me, who died and was raised on the third day.  Holy Spirit please come into my heart, change me, rescue me, save me.  In Jesus Name, Amen."
