I will be with you even unto the end of the age. Jesus – Just before He ascended into Heaven.
This is the promise of our Lord and Savior spoken to the Apostles who then watched Him ascend into the clouds and disappear from sight. I can only imagine what the disciples must have thought.
Why is He leaving us now? Why is He going now? Will He return? What just happened?
It has been nearly 2000 years since He left. Some skeptics will proclaim—just like prophecy indicated they would—where is the promise of His coming?
Then there’s the argument from some folks: Every generation believed they were the last generation so what makes this generation any different?
I think we’re living in a time where we can’t fix what is happening all around us. I think we’re headed toward a climax. I think we’re about to see prophecy that was written thousands of years ago manifest and become fulfilled.
Our Bibles speak of a one-world government and a one-world religious system all under the son of perdition, the Anti-Messiah, i.e. Satan’s man.
I would posit that we’re in a window of time where all of this will happen and it might just be sooner than any of us think.
The good news is the church will be gone. Are you aware that new-agers have been talking about a taking away of the people who are not ready to make the paradigm shift, into the new consciousness? I first heard this about 45 years ago. They have a ready-made excuse for the rapture event.
The other good-news is that as believers we have the indwelling of the spirit of the living God in us. This sets the church apart from Israel, and the “saint’s” of the Old Dispensation under the law. We are under grace, we have the comforter who will teach us all things inside us.
Even so Maranatha!
