Saints, I am sure you are hearing the news. It is very clear and makes us aware of the times in which we are living, that we are in the last days of this Grace dispensation, the Church Age.
We are hearing on the news the language we read in the book of Revelation. The meeting of the seven and the meeting of the 8 nations, etc. We know by the Word of God, that is leading up to the days of judgment coming upon the world, tribulation.
The nations are meeting, the Security Council of the UN seeking peace in the world, trying to avoid world war 3. Which when they accomplish that, will declare, peace and safety (I Thess. 5:3). The peace will be short lived then “tribulation such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be” – Mt. 24:21.
Don’t we read of this in Psalm 2? “The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together…He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: The Lord shall have them in derision….he shall speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.”
We hope to be gone before tribulation begins; to be called up with the full overcomers of this Church Age. The dead in Christ will rise first, resurrected. Then the living overcomers will be (translated) caught up together with them to meet the Lord in the air and shall forever be with Him – I Thess. 4:16-17. Look up saints, keep the faith, it will happen quickly, Heb. 10:37.
