There Will Be/Are Scoffers In The Last Days

Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lustsAnd saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation” – 2 Peter 3:3 [New Testament, 2nd book of Peter, Chapter 3, verse 3]

One does NOT have to look far to see that there are SEVERAL “mockers” and “scoffers” in the last days. But what many people don’t realize is that “last days scoffers/mockers” were PROPHESIED in the bible over 4,000 some years ago!

These clips, sadly, are just a very small tip of the iceberg! There’s SO many, many more that I don’t have time to post! But know THIS: what the Lord has said would happen at the “End of Days” IS NOW HAPPENING…….and if that’s not a sign of the Lord’s soon return, then I don’t know what is!

However, as THIS guy points out, there is a point of “spiritual probation”. And once that “spiritual probation” time passes, it’s too late! People’s eternal fates (by the time of “probation closing”) have already been sealed! So don’t go thinking that you have all the way up to the time Jesus and his angels part the sky like a scroll to repent……..

And like I said, the videos down below are just a small “sample” of all the mocking/scoffing going on in today’s world. And the mocking/scoffing INCREASES (not surprisingly) by the year, month and even DAY! But know THIS, folks: the more and more “mocking/scoffing” there is towards Jesus Christ/Yeshua/the bible in the world, the closer and closer the Lord Jesus’s/Yeshua’s return is! But WHEN the Lord returns, he won’t be coming with peace but with a sharp two-edged sword! That’s what the bible states. 

And what’s REALLY sad is that all these mockers/scoffers down below seem to have NO IDEA of the eternal condemnation that awaits them……or don’t care…….one of the two. And like I said, these mockers/scoffers are just ones of MANY:

Jay-Z & Kanye West Mock Jesus

NOTE: If you watched any of the above videos and said to yourself, “oh come on, it’s not THAT bad”, then you need to kindly re-examine the reasons of WHY you think it’s “not that bad”. The lady in the last video (the “belly dancer”) honestly looks DEMONICALLY POSSESSED at certain parts of the video if you watch it real closely! But see, that’s the problem. This world and the people OF this world have become SO desensitized to “Jesus/bible mocking” that they don’t even really see it as a “problem”, anymore! 

It always personally saddens and angers me whenever someone mocks Jesus Christ/Almighty Yeshua. For these people have NO IDEA what they’re truly saying! For if they TRULY realized the hell/lake of fire that they were headed for after this life and truly realized the total SIGNIFICANCE of what Jesus Christ/Yeshua did for mankind on the cross for ETERNAL forgiveness of sins, they’d quickly change their tune! But mostly, it’s a thing of PRIDE! People don’t like someone else (in this case, Almighty God) holding the reigns. They’d rather be in charge of their OWN destiny and fate!

BUT…….they’re not Almighty God, they didn’t create the universe and the heavens. They don’t have the eternal “say so” that they so desire. And see, that’s where Satan and his demons come in………they LIE to humanity and try to TELL THEM things such as: “You can be in charge of your own destiny”. But if THAT were so, there would BE no Revelation 20:10 which states, “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”

FAR TOO MANY PEOPLE in today’s world laugh off the concept of “hell” and say things like, “I don’t CARE if I go to hell, party on, whew hew!” However, those people should do this simple “exercize”. They should take the flame from a small lighter, then hold their hand over that flame……..and then imagine a flame that’s 10,000 times hotter than THAT flame……while ALSO imagining if their WHOLE ENTIRE BODY was being burned and consumed ALIVE in that flame……with NO OTHER HUMANS AROUND for companionship……a place in which Jesus says there will “WEEPING AND KNASHING OF TEETH”. Hhhmmm, doesn’t sound like such a “party” afterall, now, does it? For it is a place of ETERNAL TORMENT!!!!!! 

fire, eternal hell

Proverbs 1:22 and 1:26 state: How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?” I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh”

In other words, the Lord will MOCK mockers! And he will LAUGH when their fear cometh!

Luke 21:26 says: men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken”

Proverbs 3:24 says: “Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly”

All of the mockers and SNL-type syndicates are laughing NOW……..but once eternity hits, and once the Eternal Judgement seat of Christ opens up and they realize that Jesus is real and that his eternal judgement is REAL, it suddenly won’t be a “joke” anymore!

They’ll find themselves on the wrong end of God’s ETERNAL WRATH and they’ll be HYSTERICALLY CRYING OUT AND SCREAMING something along the lines of: “We were wrong, Jesus! We were wrong! Please forgive us! Please give us another chance! Please don’t send us to the flames! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE FORGIVE US, O LORD JESUS, THOU MIGHTY SON OF GOD!” But sadly, it’ll be too late for these folks. And THE MOST PAINFUL REALIZATION “IN” the eternal flames of torment will be that they could’ve prevented it, HAD they truly listened to the Lord and all his prophets! 

“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity – [Matthew 7:21-23]

The simple truth is that “mockers/scoffers” truly have NO IDEA of the hell/eternal condemnation in the flames that they’re headed for……..and if they DO have a clue, then they honestly think “it’s not going to be that bad”. However, WEEPING AND KNASHING OF TEETH? That sure doesn’t sound like such a smooth-flowing “party” to ME, how about YOU? 

But the sad reality is that us biblical-roots Christians can preach and preach about hell/eternal condemnation till we’re blue in the face. But the truth is that if people don’t want to listen, they won’t! And there’s nothing we can say or do (WHEN a person refuses to listen to the Lord’s gospel/message), except pray and wait for the Holy Spirit to do his work in those people! Because UNTIL their spiritual eyes are opened, they will REFUSE to see!

I know it’s hard when people refuse to believe in the gospel or the reality of God’s existence. I also know it’s hard when people close to you refuse to listen to the gospel of Salvation. But you can’t give up, folks! You must STILL keep on trying! Think back to when YOU were a non-believer……would YOU have wanted some “Christian” to have given up on YOU back then, when you were still a non-believer? NO! Ofcourse not! So DON’T give up on others! Don’t give up on your non-believing friends, family and coworkers……for as long as there’s still breath in their lungs, there’s STILL HOPE that their spiritual eyes might be opened to Jesus’s everlasting gospel of eternal life AND Salvation!

One approach I sometimes employ is what I call the “Revelation 21-22 approach”. I’ll suggest a person reads the entire two chapters of Revelation 21 and 22. And then, I’ll suggest, “Wouldn’t you WANT to be in a place where there’s no pain, no tears or suffering, ONLY happiness?” Most would agree that they would. So then I’ll PROCLAIM, “well, Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to this place of eternal life and Salvation”.

Some get offended (especially if they’re Hindu, Muslim, etc.) Others get seemingly confused, as they were taught that “ALL PATHS LEAD TO ONE” (Satan’s false teaching!) And yet others aren’t sure WHAT to think. But we DO know that John 14:6 expressedly states: “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me“. 

In other words, Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to eternal life, the ONLY way to eternal salvation and the ONLY way to receive forgiveness of sins. There IS no other way! 

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” – Acts 4:12 

The Virgin Mary won’t save you, ALLAH won’t save you, Joseph Smith won’t save you, Brahma/Krishna/Vishnu won’t save you, Buddha won’t save you, SATAN/Wiccan goddessess won’t save you, you get the picture…….

You have two choices and two choices, ONLY! You can live a life FOR Jesus/Yeshua or you can live a life that’s AGAINST Jesus/Yeshua. You’re free to choose which option you want to do. But what you’re NOT free of is the ETERNAL CONSEQUENCES of said choice. So choose wisely.  

 

  

How To “Get Saved” In the Name of Jesus Christ

With today’s world going down the gutter, now is a good of time as any to get “saved”.

What takes less than 15 minutes can seal your fate for eternity – for the good. All you have to do is believe in Jesus Christ, pray for forgiveness of your sins, get IMMEDIATELY baptized in the name of  Jesus Christ upon very first believing in him (1st Century Christians were ALWAYS baptized IMMEDIATELY upon believing in Jesus Christ or shortly thereafter), repent of your sins (that means give them up and STOP doing them), and CONTINUE to follow all of Jesus Christ’s commands in the bible [10 commandments + Sermon on the Mount teachings in Matthew chapter 5 to 7 + ALL new testament teachings in New Testament, (including 7th Day BIBLICAL Sabbath and 7 BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS) and you’re saved! That’s it!

“All those who believe and are baptized will be saved but those who do not believe will be condemned” – Mark 16:16

 

How? Simple.

1. Pray something along the lines of the following prayer down below at the bottom of this list. But make sure to pray the prayer in your OWN personal way. Don’t just repeat the words. Pray to Jesus in your OWN heart and with your OWN words/wording!  

2. Truly mean that prayer with all your heart, soul and MIND!

3. Get baptized in the name of Jesus Christ (full water immersion baptism in a lake, river, bathtub full of water or swimming pool: “sprinkling baptisms” are NOT biblical)

4. Pray for forgiveness of ALL sins in your life

5. REPENT/give up your sins/sinful lifestyle(s) and OBEY Jesus’s teachings in the bible [10 commandments + ALL New Testament teachings) 

6. FORSAKE all things Pagan, such as the “non-biblical Sunday sabbath”, the modern day UNBIBLICAL “church building and services” (as biblically, the TRUE “church” is the BODY/ASSEMBLY OF BELIEVERS THEMSELVES, NOT A BUILDING!!!!) and PAGAN HOLIDAYS such as Easter, Christmas, Halloween, etc.

7. PARTAKE of the BIBLICAL, HOLY SANCTIFIED BY GOD/JESUS CHRIST 7th DAY SABBATH (Saturday) and the Lord’s 7 ANNUAL FEASTS outlined in Leviticus 23 (such as Passover/Feast of Unleavened Bread, Pentecost, etc.) Because remember that Jesus Christ and his disciples STILL celebrated them during the time(s) of the New Testament and (as far as my spiritual knowledge goes), possibly even IN the Millennial Kingdom (ie. Feast of Tabernacles) since the 7 BIBLICAL FEASTS celebrate HIM (Jesus Christ Almighty). Now tell me: what do Easter bunnies, painted eggs, Santa Claus, cooked hams and Halloween costumes have to do with Jesus? Answer: ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! 

8. CONTINUE to have faith in Jesus Christ and to serve him to the best of your ability until the day you die and you’re saved for eternity and assured a one-way ticket to eternal paradise with Jesus Christ someday! It’s THAT simple!

“Jesus, please show me what’s true and what’s not true, when it comes to all biblical teaching, today. Please forgive me for all my sins and come into my mind, heart, body and spirit today. Thank-you for becoming a sacrifice for the forgiveness of my, as well as all of mankind’s sins. Please show me and lead me to ALL your divine truth(s) in the bible, help me to follow after you and to give up my old sinful lifestyle and help me to preach to others about the “good news” of Salvation as often as I’m able to. Amen”.

And then after you say that prayer and BELIEVE it in your heart to be true, get baptized in the name of Jesus Christ IMMEDIATELY or shortly thereafter (full water immersion baptism), repent of your sins/give up your old sinful lifestyle and obey Jesus’s teachings in the bible and take steps to do so, sit back and take note of God working in your life, for the better. Coming to Jesus Christ can release you from the sinful bondage you’ve been held under, up to this point in life.

It’s not something you’ll have to think about or question. It’s something you’ll know. You will KNOW with 100% conviction that you are “saved” and will go into eternity WITH Jesus & that all your sins are forgiven (provided that you REMAIN 100% right with Jesus Christ, ofcourse – as, you can’t get “saved” in the name of Jesus Christ today and decide tomorrow you want to forsake the bible altogether and still expect to get saved) and that you’re sealed in the name of God. And a great feeling of peace & joy will come over you and your spirit shall be satisfied.

“For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son [Jesus Christ], that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” – John 3:16

 

But beware: As soon as you become a “new Christian”, Satan will FIGHT LIKE *HECK* for your soul, and will try to spiritually attack you, right and left. And he will oftentimes do this through people that are close to you (friends, family members, peers, coworkers). He’ll try to sow the seed of “doubt” in your mind.

He’ll try to get you to lust, kill, steal, be envious, prideful, angry, bitter, resentful, & full of doubt, fear and hate. So be prepared for that. Read the bible and pray in Jesus’s name, daily. And then the Devil won’t be able to touch you, spiritually or otherwise. He might be able to TEMPT YOU but he won’t be able to win over you, so long as you CONTINUE to obey Jesus Christ all the days of your life and to TRUST Jesus Christ (that means, to have FAITH in him and faith IN the fact that he’s the ONLY one IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE who can save you & the ONLY one you can go to for Salvation!)

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” – Acts 4:12
