It's The End of The World...And I Feel Fine

People talk about the future. They say we'll have steroes and ovens that read your mind to know exactly what you want to hear and eat. They say we won't have anymore situation comedies or rock 'n' roll or United States.

Okie dokie, future man! Please have a seat and tell me all about what it's like there, in the future. I am so intrigued. I would like to point out that with all the inventions we still haven't come up with a time machine and with all your predictions you don't have a very strong batting record. I think this proves your an idiot, in the here and now. Would all the idiots please shut up?

Day after day after day I am bombarded with sign after sign after sign that to these people is clear evidence that the end of the world is imminent. Since the world was set into motion it was bound for its final days. Jesus, himself, said we were living in the end times, although he clearly did not mean it the way most of us have interpreted it.

So the next time you think of the rising prevalence and acceptance of sin or various natural disasters which are supposedly unprecedented or shifts in the world political climate which seem to mirror those foretold in Left Behind just remember no one knows the time of Christ's return.

When is not as important as the promise itself. Prophecy is fulfilled, everyday. There is a whole host of historical and scientific evidence to accompany this claim. What you do with this evidence is another matter entirely, but nonetheless prophecy will continually be fulfilled. We have a God who keeps his promises and we find that hard to believe considering the number of times that we've been betrayed, lied to or let down. Still, it's true.

Now here's what gets me. We talk about all these signs in such a way that would make an eavesdropper certain we were scared to death. We're scared they're going to take our country, our churches, our way of life. All of these things will very likely happen, but we need not be afraid.

God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).

Let's not run around like headless chickens. Let's not camp out in lieu of the rapture. Let's live the more abundant life right now. It is offered to all. Let's live in such a way as to remind people of this offer. That's all we can do.

So don't freak out.
