My blogging friend Black3Actual has two posts up that every person who happens to come to this blog should read today!
Within the post, Rob Bell is described as an “ex-pastor” who now falls more in line with those teaching heresy because this ex-pastor does not adhere to the full Gospel of Jesus Christ. As our author at the link excellently points out, Bell is more of an “itching ears” type of preacher. [See 2 Timothy 4:3-4]
Myths like Bell’s views do not save ANYONE. In fact, he is guilty of turning people to the wayside where they will miss the true totality of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and thus end up lost for all eternity. It REALLY MATTERS who you listen to in this day and age of deception!
Next, Black3Actual wrote a post entitled News Headlines Affirm OYL Posts: Islam Working Toward End Of Days!.
I have written about the importance of the black flags of Islam and how the Obama/Iran deal is setting the stage for Christ’s return. I am fully aware that those who do not believe the Bible do not believe what I have been trying to explain, but I cannot help them. They have chosen to remain willfully ignorant. For those who wish to see and understand, the signs are coming more often and more clearly every day. Just this week the news has started to affirm and support everything I have been trying to explain. This story is just one such example:
Whether you believe in Bible or Islamic prophecy or not, ISIS does and it is working to bring about the fulfillment of their prophecies. Ignoring them is no different from the Allies ignoring the clear declarations by Hitler of what he intended to do.

The Gospel of Christ can be revealed and understood by a child!
At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children.
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
However, once a person trusts in Christ and is saved, the next step is the study of Scripture (including knowing about end times prophecy) for it is a life-long endeavor! We have “never arrived” while here on this earth regarding the Wisdom, Knowledge, Mercy, Grace, Forgiveness and the All Encompassing Love of God! However, the Bible tells us that one day we will know!
Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.
There are certain individuals who will not heed the warnings that Christians are sharing. However, we know that there will be (and are, right now!) a remnant who are born-again in Christ. We also can celebrate the fact that there are Christians who are well-informed regarding Bible prophecy. We are heeding what Jesus told us regarding “the signs of the times” and sharing this information with the lost.
My hope is that there will be many more who are quickened by the Holy Spirit of God, knocking on the door of their hearts, to come to repentance at the cross of Christ. Only His shed blood can… not just “cover” sins temporarily as was the purpose of the shed blood of unblemished animals in the Old Testament… but permanently take away our sins! Belief in Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life; for only He provides the mercy and grace in order to be reconciled back unto God.
Jesus Christ was the final sacrifice for sins, and His resurrection back unto life proves His claim that He is the Son of God, the Messiah who was long awaited throughout biblical history. Jesus Christ brings us back unto God for the “it is finished” forgiveness that we all so desperately need!
As we eagerly await Christ’s return for His own (the Rapture), we need to preach the true Gospel, watch for the signs of the times, work for His kingdom, and evangelize those who do not know Him. All that we can do is share the Gospel, as Jesus instructed us to do just before His ascension into heaven.
It is God, through the work of the Holy Spirit, who ultimately does the saving! He will be with us ALWAYS – even unto the end of the world!
