This question if for all of you that have either stood in your pulpits, went on television, written books, recorded videos, listened to those that have, or used any other avenue to state what is going to happen in the “End Times” “Second Coming” and “Rapture”. You have read, preached, and taught scriptures such as….
2 Timothy 3:1-5, “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, .heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God. Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”
2 Timothy 3:6-7. “For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
2 Timothy 3:13- “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.”
2 Peter 3:3 – “Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts”,
Most of you reading this already know all the teachings and scriptures that have been used to relate to the “Second Coming”, the “End Times” and “Rapture”, so rather than go into all that again, we’ll get to the real question here, “HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND?”
You have preached or listened to those teachings for years.. and years.. and have put your hope and faith in the words of men and the bible that these things are going to happen, and that they MUST before the RETURN OF CHRIST. That deceivers must come, wars and rumors of wars happen, men shall be lovers of their selves more than God, and all the other things that shall come to pass BEFORE CHRIST COMES!
Do you really BELIEVE what you claim to believe and have taught for years? This is the basis for the question, “HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND?”
For you to believe that these things must come before the “Second Coming”, “End Times” and “Rapture” takes place then why are you the ones that are fighting against it?
Every time something in this “Christian” nation takes place that lines up with the things that you claim MUST happen before the RAPTURE and the END TIMES, you’re the first ones to step up to fight against it. You fight against men that are lovers of men, you fight against deceivers that deceive and are deceived. You fight against the scoffers that walk after their own lusts. You fight against all of it. You donate money to organizations that lobby the legislative branches of this nation to change the laws to stop it. You send representatives to march on Washington to dictate laws against such things, and demand the government enforcement of the laws that stop it all. You spend time and money on television campaigns to bring it to the attention of everyone that it’s happening, with your teachings of the “SIGNS OF THE TIMES” messages, and then encourage others to fight against it. So I ask you, “HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND?” Or is it simply that you never believed any of this in the first place???
If you really believe what you’re teaching, and have taught, and continue to proclaim, then you and those like you should be welcoming all these things! You should be the ones celebrating and “preparing the way of the Lord”. If all that you claim to believe is TRUTH, then JESUS CANNOT RETURN until these things happen and to stand against them is to DELAY or ATTEMPT TO STOP the RETURN OF CHRIST, and THE KINGDOM OF GOD COMING!
So I ask you, why are you fighting against the “SECOND COMING OF CHRIST”, the “END TIMES” and your departure from this place in the Rapture? Why are you not on the phones, television, and in your pulpits encouraging everyone to welcome all of this, knowing that without the wicked and evil getting worse and worse JESUS CANNOT RETURN. Without those that you call deceivers and scoffers, there would be NO SECOND COMING! Without those that are doing all these horrible things that you are fighting so hard against, there would be NO SECOND COMING… so I ask you… “HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND TRYING TO FIGHT AGAINST THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST” as you claim is NEAR! Or is it that you never believed it in the first place, and that you are the ones that have been the “deceived and deceiving”?
Refer to the words of Matthew, spoken by Jesus to the disciples, Matthew 24:3-14, “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? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 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. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these [are] the beginning of sorrows. 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. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.”
Do you see what Jesus said? If you’re going to believe in an “END TIME”, “RAPTURE” teaching, in the first place, you are not to be troubled by all this. You are directed by Jesus Christ Himself that you are going to see all this and you are the ones that are going to be hated by all men. You are the ones that will be afflicted, and killed! Then you see Jesus saying to those disciples, “THIS GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM SHALL BE PREACHED in all the world for a witness unto all nations, and then shall the end come”.
It was Jesus Christ himself, doing the will of God and knowing what was to come, that stood in the face of it without fighting against it. He didn’t condemn those that were vital parts of God’s will being done. He didn’t foster hate and war against those that were beating Him and nailing Him to the cross. It was Jesus who stood in the face of the King who said he had power to stop the crucifixion and said, “you have no power other than that which has been given you of My FATHER”. As horrible as it got for Jesus, as Jesus’ close friends were persecuted, beheaded, and died, He never fought the will of God, nor what God said that “must come”! Why are YOU??
Luke 21:28, records Jesus saying, “and when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH!”
So I ask again, “HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND?” Are you really going to wage war AGAINST GOD HIMSELF? Are you really trying to STOP the “END TIMES”, the “SECOND COMING OF CHRIST”, and the “RAPTURE’? Or do you simply not believe what you say you believe, and have been mandating that others believe, that “must first come to pass”?
ASK GOD! HEAR GOD! KNOW HIM!
