Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto Him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the Day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that Day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. (2Th 2:1-4)
The lawless one who opposes Jesus Christ and seeks to rule this world will come and persecute the people of GOD, but our GOD is still in control. Even when the condition of this world is so terrible, and so few remain obedient to His Word, we can trust that He knows who are His and He will never leave us or forsake us. We can boldly say, The Lord is our helper, and we will not fear what man shall do to us. As long as His Church, filled by His Spirit, are on this earth, He will empower those who have trusted Him and His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary for forgiveness through repentance and reconciliation with the Father by His grace, to do His will and accomplish His work in this broken and sinful world.
Until He is done with us, the body of Christ, we are to be on mission for Him. We are His ministers to meet the needs of those around us who are hurting and in need, as He provides and guides us to serve Him. We are members of His body, and members one of another, set in the body as He wills, to love one another and disciple one another in the Word of GOD, until we all grow up into the full measure of Him, conformed, not to this world, but to the image of His dear Son. We are His witnesses, ministers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to go to this lost and dying world with the Good News of Salvation by grace through faith, that those who hear and believe in Him and Him alone might repent and receive life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD, forgiveness from GOD, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
