Dear brothers-sisters in Christ, all friends:
What is coming quickly now to this world is the greatest event in world history, besides the 1st appearance of God Himself who walked this earth in the person of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world.
Namely, the 2nd physical coming of Christ to this earth. The entire universe will see Him and His glorious Return. The 2nd judgement upon earth will precede it.
For bonafide believers TODAY who "know their God" [Daniel 11:32] these are the most exciting times to be alive in AND to witness in 2000 years, since Jesus walked the earth!
Mankind's track record to REJECT GOD
Dear friends: mankind has a problem. It's called 'self-interest' and 'worldly interest' which the human nature desires to exalt FIRST, before God and His Word. In a word, mankind's problem is DISOBEDIENCE to God which brings sin into a person's life. The first example of this is seen in the Garden of Eden with God's very first child, Adam.
Moreover, the Lord's parable regarding the '2 gates' high- lights the 2 exact opposite profiles of human nature towards God as proven through the past, present and future of world history and the human race.
On one hand, 1 gate leads to life, but the other leads to destruction. Each person has his own decision in life to make as to which gate he chooses to go through.
In fact, the human race's PROVEN TRACK RECORD in history starting with Adam in the Garden is to REJECT GOD and then throw out His Word too, in disobedience. For 6000 years since the Garden, mankind has proven this sad, but true, SOLID PATTERN of rejecting God, even violently and with wickedness of heart. "Many" have entered through the wide gate which leads to destruction, as the result.
A worsening human race
This pattern of rejecting God and His goodness has grown progressively worse and worse in wickedness and into its final End Time monsterous status today, as foretold.
Adam, God's very own 1st child, started the ball rolling of this self-serving, defiant mindset and behavior against God. The majority of mankind, the "many", have followed suit without question as Jesus' parable framed.
For example, the Old Testament is filled with stories about mankind's wickedness, even when only Noah and 7 other persons were found to be Godly and upright, being saved from the 1st Judgement 4500 years ago. The rest of mankind ["many", the majority] failed to make it, from their rebellion and sins before God. Think of this alarming fact: Only 8 persons saved out of a whole human race back then.
Later, the ISRAELITES also proved their own stiff-necked, rebellion against God. They walked in circles for 40 years in sin and rebellion, when they could have physically travelled to the Promised LAND in just a 10 day journey from Egypt going north to Israel.
But their rejection of God brought confusion and darkness upon them unnecessarily, and like other generations, impeded their "entering". Again, "many" are those who enter by the "WIDE GATE which leads to destruction" as foretold of the human race. [Matthew 7:13,14]
Then, in God's greatest manifestation and DIVINE SIGN to this world and the human race, He manifested Himself on earth, and walked sinlessly and Divinely in Christ Jesus, Son of the Living God.
And what did the human race do? They followed their evil instincts AGAIN, to REBEL AGAINST GOD and REJECT His only begotten Son, by wickedly torturing Him and crucifying Him on a Cross. The ultimate act of wickedness against God, carried out by God's own creation, the "many".
Afterwards, the human race CONTINUED in their proven rebel- lion against God by chasing Christ's prime Apostles and His prophets out of town in the ensuing 40 - 50 years after Pentecost. The beheading of the Apostle Paul by the Roman Empire's Nero in 68AD spotlighted the human race's pattern, again, of their hate of God, His Word and of His upright servants who are His true children.
Except for John the Revelator who died naturally in 95AD, all of the other original Disciples who walked with Jesus and the writers of the New Testament died torturously as martyrs to the hateful human race, the "many".
Pushing God out of His own Church Body!
Incredibly, the human race's rebellion and self-serving nature is also shown in 95AD's depiction of the body of Christ itself. Revelation specifies 5 out of the 7 first Century Churches as being ridden with sin barely 60 years after Christ's ascension.
The result by 100AD is written in history books and the Bible account itself. The human race had not only cast out of their lives God's Son, His followers and His New Covenant Word, but worse, the body of Christ itself was also on the same sinful path of the human race's pattern at that point: Rejecting God.
By 95AD's vision to John, the body of Christ is shown in the Laodicean Church as having pushed Jesus ALL THE WAY OUT of His own church! He is seen standing humbly on the outside-looking-in, and politely knocking on the 'door' with hope to be invited back into His very own body of Christ! Yet, they could not even 'hear His voice' . [Rev 3:20]
America's Laodicean Church Leaders Today
History now proves today that from the 1st century and through the last 2000 years, the human race's ongoing PATTERN, overall, is that "MANY" [the majority] of the people on earth will REBEL against GOD, REJECT His Word, REJECT His love and mercies, and then cast Him out of their lives.
Biblical history confirms man-kind's staunch rejection also of God's true prophets. Why? Because they are His true ambassadors who carry God's true Words, exactly what the human race has proven it does NOT want to see nor hear.
Alarmingly, in America itself today, the current Church body and its top TV Ministers and Pastors across the USA have also now fallen into the exact same worldly, self-serving and wealth-oriented mindset and conduct as the Laodiceans of the 1st century.
Effectively, Christ has now been 'pushed out' of America's body of Christ in exchange for the worldly and spiritually devoid 'Entertainment Tonight' and 'American Idol' type of TV Christian programming predominantly seen today.
In the mid-80's is when TBN began veering off course and into what has now become a daily display of such unChristlikeness and fleecing of God's flock that even unbelievers can watch and accurately discern the mockery and reproach it brings upon the Lord and true Biblical Christianity.
However, just like the Laodicean Church, America's top Christian TV Networks themselves [ie. TBN, Daystar] still remain totally "blind" to this day to their own wordliness, their self-serving nature, their 'wealthy' mindset and their need to 'repent'. [Rev 3:14,17] [LINK BELOW: Laodicean Church in America]
Their global TV platforms, being the most influential in the arena of Religious Broadcasting, are responsible for allowing all of the ungodly and 'clanging cymbal' ministers and 'noisy gong' ministries and so-called 'Prophets' and 'apost-
les' to flood the House of God and take center stage for the last 25 years. [1Cor 13:1,2] They've made an absolute mess out of it.
My adjectives here are conservative in light of the terms the Lord used to describe the Laodicean Church, naming them as: "Wretched, miserable, poor, naked and blind" and then likening them to 'vomit' because of their "lukewarm-ness". [Rev 3:14, 17]
Dear friends: Picture for a moment the great Prophets and Apostles Paul, Peter and John standing side-by-side on TBN's "Praise the Lord" program. Now picture 3 of TBN's most highly-praised TBN Ministers standing next to them on the same stage. An extreme contrast.
One group demonstrates true humility, love, gentleness, Godly speech and a true mature Christlike attitude and demeanor towards all people. The other group is cocky, loud-mouthed, has worldly and unbecoming character and speech, is self- praising and wealth-oriented, which fail true Christlikeness.
Again, the human nature which is proven since the Garden of wanting to PUSH GOD OUT, even OUT of His own body of believers, is thriving in America. TBN and other PRIME Religious TV Stations, have now blinded and indoctrinated a whole generation [since the mid-80's] to believe that what is being watched DAILY by Americans is 'true Christianity' and true Christlikeness.
However, from God's perspective, it is more of the same ungodly, self-serving and worldliness of sin proven in the human race's track record. Yet today, is decorated in religion and in the most 'religious' generation of all time, as foretold for today's End Times. [Math 24:11,24]
Alot is written at Heisnear.com about all of this to equip God's people, open eyes with accurate discernment and in order to "See to it that no one misleads you", a major forewarning by the Lord to His Disciples and the body of Christ. [Links below]
TBN and Daystar are specifically mentioned here so people can accurately discern their platforms as the prime and most influential representers of unChristlikeness in today's End Times. And, so as NOT to be further misled at this most crucial period in world history. Like the Laodiceans, TBN and Daystar still can repent.
Embrace Christ as Savior and Lord
Dear friends: Matthew 7:13,14 which instructs all persons to "enter by the narrow gate" is powerful foresight and wisdom of God to mankind of the need to seek God FIRST, and to embrace Him FULLY through our lifetime on earth.
His saying that few "find" it, emphasizes every person's inborn need to diligently 'seek' God and to continually 'know Him' through His Word and by His Spirit. This is the very solution to life, and to 'entering' eternity.
Prophetically and as scriptures show, a GLOBAL AWARE- NESS of Christ's Nearness will explode leading up to the 'start' of the final 7 year Tribulation. People will "SEE" ALL the final prophecies ALREADY lined up today and at an APEX as Christ foretold. [Matt 24:33]
This is a MAJOR PROPHECY occurring now and already in its beginning stages particularly in America as shown in Heisnear.com site statistics and its incredible momentum. [Math 24:33 / Daniel 11:33]
"Seeing all these things" [Math 24:33] is vital prophetically today and brings 100% confidence of His Nearness pre- cisely as the Lord foretold, "knowing" He is near. To re-emphasize, a coming explosion of awareness of people 'seeing' the Nearness of Christ is now churning.
But, embracing Christ fully, is the KEY to 'entering by the narrow gate' and into eternity with God forever.
Again, at this CRUCIAL TIME IN WORLD HISTORY, God is still, as He always has since in the beginning, reaching towards all persons with great mercies and love, drawing as many to Himself as He can, who not only "see" all these things [Math 24:33] and who "hear His voice" [Rev 3:20] BUT who ALSO embrace Christ FULLY, 100%.
Today's SIGNS of Judgement are NOW at an APEX and CLEAR ....as in the days of Noah
God has never been One to surprise His people with judgement, but is "patient" [2 Peter 3:9] and loving and "not willing that ANY perish." [2 Peter 3:9] He also lets people know in advance of the major events coming through His anointed oracles and prophets like Noah. [Amos 3:7]
For example, from the Garden of Eden's creation only about 1500 years had passed until the 1st judgement came in Noah's era. But since then, 4500 years have now passed before the 2nd judgement is about to come to pass. In- cluding the last 2000 years since God's own Son stood on earth also forewarning to 'see all these things' coming. [Math 24:33]
TODAY, 'ALL' of the End Time prophecies have NOW come together CLEARLY, confirming the Nearness of Christ, His imminent Return AND the 2nd Judgement of God about to come upon this earth, all mirroring Noah's era.
Without question, during the period of over 100 years of Noah's building of the ark, his generation was also con- tinually SEEING and HEARING about the judgement coming from his own preaching and prophesying. There was no doubt in Noah's generation as to the exact meaning of Noah's message.
Eventually, the final 2-3 years of the almost-fully-constructed ARK was ALSO loud 'physical' confirmation to Noah's generation of the APEX at hand AND the CLEAR Nearness of God's judgement.
The awesomeness of the physically massive finished ARK correlated exactly with the magnitude of Noah's message to: Repent and embrace God to escape the pre-announced worldwide judgement, which was at hand.
God had let them know over and over with the most crucial and FINAL SIGN sitting right in front of them: the GIANT ARK.
Today, in precise likeness to Noah's generation, "all these things" which are foretold to line up into an APEX in the End Times are right in front of this generation, RIGHT NOW.
And EXACTLY LIKE the finished massive ARK, "ALL" fore- told FINAL prophecies, including Antichrist's appearance and the nearing 'start' of the Tribulation, are clearly and 'massively' in their foreordained places on the End Time world stage and IN PLAIN VIEW, RIGHT NOW.
As emphasized, the coming explosion of this generation's full awareness of the End Time APEX now at hand is already in progress. And just like in Noah's generation, today's populace will also be KEEN to 'see all these things' shaped up today as soberingly identified at Heisnear.com.
America's BLIND Ministers and 'prophets'
Dear friends: although this is a serious and even solemn topic, it is also an urgent EYE OPENING word to exa- mine ourselves to ensure that our heart and character line up FULLY with God's anointed Word and that we have absorbed ourselves in Christ, as Savior and Lord.
Our obedience to His Word and our true Christlikeness which demonstrates His love to all persons, are what prove ourselves as true 'Disciples' of Christ. [John 13:34,35]
It is in the Spirit of Christ to have our 'game faces' on at this CRUCIAL period in world history. As opposed to 99% of America's top TV Ministries [ ie. TBN, Daystar ] , TV Preachers, popular pulpit speakers and so-called 'prophets', who UNANIMOUSLY DO NOT even so much as mention ANY of 'all these things' which Christ specifically instructed His followers to watch for, which are lined up TODAY. [Matthew 24:33]
Most [99%] of America's Ministers are too busy trying to build a name for themselves and be recognized publicly as the 'great man or woman of God', rather than 'equipping the saints' [Ephes 4:12] and blowing the TRUMPET of alarm and readiness as are the KEY requirements of all of God's true Overseers of His flock. [Ezek 33:1-7]
The prophet Jeremiah rightly foretold of today's End Time 'false prophets' and 'wicked' [Jer 23:11] self-serving Shepherds of whom God foretold: "In the last days you will clearly understand it. I DID NOT send these prophets, but they ran. I DID NOT speak to them, but they prophesied. But if they had stood in My council, then they would have announced My Words to My people, and would have turned them back from their evil way and from the evil of their deeds." [Jeremiah 23:20-22]
"FEW" will enter
TODAY, a most sobering thought in examining the Lord's statement about 'the FEW who will enter' is that this logically points to probably 40% OR LESS who make up the 'few'.
Alarmingly, this shows that about 4 out of 10 (or less) of those all around us, as in past generations, will 'enter' into the 'life' which Christ talked about. It also means 6 (or more) out of 10 won't 'enter', being the "many".
Dear friends: If you saw in the distance a huge train barrelling straight at you and all of your loved ones, would you immediately warn them of the oncoming danger and then quickly begin preparing to "enter" into safety? Or, like America's BLIND and flashy TV Ministries, would you continue in worldliness, sin and total neglect of the danger at hand and the clear requirements to be saved?
The answer is obvious. Yet, the human race's pattern is STILL proven through history that "many" will enter into 'destruction', having chosen to embrace the flesh, the world and its empty promises, instead of embracing God.
Scriptures portray the same for the End Time body of Christ saying, "some will fall away from the faith" [1Tim 4:1; 2Tim 3:1] and likened to "foolish virgins" who went back into the world, away from God. [Matthew 25:1-10]
Dear friends: EMBRACE THE LORD JESUS and receive ETERNAL LIFE FROM HIM, who loves all people and 'is not willing that ANY perish'. [2 Peter 3:9] Be filled with His Spirit [Ephesians 5:17,18] and absorb yourselves in God's anointed Word which changes lives and causes the 'few' to 'enter the narrow gate which leads to life". "Seek the Lord (TODAY!) while He may be found." [Isaiah 55:6]
Literally, this generation is now living in the rapidly narrowing gap of time adjacent to the 'start' of the final 7 Year Tribulation.
More than ever before, begin letting others know about Today's End Times, the Nearness of Christ and the APEX of "ALL" prophecies NOW lined up TODAY in front of this very generation, as pinpointed at Heisnear.com.
This lines up with Daniel's prophecy for End Time believers saying, 'Those who have insight among the people will provide understanding to the many." [Daniel 11:33]
Imagine all the lost souls in your own sphere of life who don't yet know Christ and/or are blind still to the APEX of prophecies squarely facing this generation, whom the Lord depends upon you to let them know.
PRAY MORE FERVENTLY for loved ones and even strangers who we meet that they not only "SEE ALL THESE THINGS" shaped up today, but are saved by God's grace in Christ Jesus.
God is reaching for ALL lost souls right now in His mercies and forgiveness at this most crucial time in world history.
This is the purpose of this inevitable End Time Word.
"Even so, you too, when you see ALL these things, KNOW He is near, even right at the door." [Matthew 24:33]
"For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. For as in those days which were before the flood they were eating and drinking, they were marrying and giving in marriage... UNTIL THE DAY THAT NOAH ENTERED THE ARK, and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so shall the coming of the Son of Man be." [Gospel Matthew 24:37-39)
