Since World War 3 is just round the corner, what must a Christian do?
1 Pet 4:7-8 But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers. And above all things have fervent love for one another, for "love will cover a multitude of sins."
In the last days when we come before God in prayer we must be
1. Be Serious for it is a matter of life and salvation or death and damnation. Check your faith against the Apostles Creed whether you are the wheat or the tare for many so-called Christians have believed wrongly the watered down and heretic gospel.
2. Be Watchful of the times and seasons, fulfillments of each prophecy, and what God expects of us.
3. fervent love for one another
1. Be Serious - life and death
From the Apostles Creed, have you believed:-
i) the Trinity or Triune Godhead.
1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
God is one. He reveals Himself to men as 3 persons in the Triune Godhead - the Father, the Word (Son) and the Holy Ghost (Holy Spirit) so that we can learn from Him to be a loving father and an obedient son.
ii) the Gospel of Christ
I Cor 15:3-5 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve.
Have you believed the Gospel that :-
a) Jesus was the Christ or the Word (God) made flesh
b) Jesus died on the cross pouring out His blood for the cleansing of your sins
c) Jesus was buried but on the third day He rose from the dead and
d) He gave the Holy Spirit of redemption to dwell within all those who believe the Gospel thereby making them to become born again Christians.
If you have not believed the above i)Trinity and ii) Gospel, then you may be in danger of not being born again nor saved. Repent and confess your belief of the true Gospel (Apostles' Creed) to the Lord.
2. Be Watchful - coming End-time signs and events
i) Coming WW3 will kill all the tares. Rest of mankind will suffer greatly from wounds, diseases, hunger, and fear but they will find salvation in the care of faithful Christians (wheat). These wheat having the truth of the Gospel, Jesus' commandments and end-time events will teach and prepare the new converts to become the bride of the Lamb by overcoming the deceptions of the Antichrist.
ii) Period of Tribulations
During this period of about 4 years, the temple of Antichrist will be built. The mark of the beast (666) will be available. Thank God that He will nourish His faithful children, who have not taken the mark 666.
Rev 12:6 Then the woman (wheat) fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days (42 months).
iii) Period of Great Tribulations
At the dedication of the temple of God, the Antichrist will appear at the mercy seat declaring himself as god. Many will be deceived to worship him as god.
iv) Rapture when the Lord will come in the cloud to collect His saints back to heaven.
3. fervent love for one another
John 13:34-35 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another."
To be a disciple of Jesus, we must love one another as He had loved us. We have been commissioned by our Lord Jesus to make disciples of all nations by teaching them to observe all His commandments.Mat 28:19-20 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.
