End-of-World Mindset?

There is, according to some observers, a developing mindset among people in general that something wicked this way comes, as William Shakespeare put it. This developing mindset is particularly pronounced among the Millennials.

We can see this growing angst reflected in the words of U.S. House of Representatives Congresswoman Alexandria Ocassio Cortez (29, I think she is) and others of her politically ideological ilk. They are so concerned about the coming destruction of planet Earth–within twelve years, Cortez says–that they offer insane fixes to prevent the earth’s demise.

She and some others have declared they will work to do away with all airplane travel. They are determined to stop, or curtail at least, the eating of meat. We need, they believe, fewer cattle on the planet because of the cows’ …ahem… flatulence, which, they believe, adds to the methane buildup and other things destroying the breathability of air. Their plans, if they were possible to accomplish and were implemented, would cost upwards of $100 trillion. This amount is considered woefully low in estimation by many who study such things.

The doing away with airplane travel, travel by automobile, and many other brilliant such stratagem for saving the planet are just the tip of the supposedly melting iceberg in their plans to change the way life is conducted on earth. Worries of future, worldwide, catastrophe isn’t confined to Ms. Cortez and her lot. A recent news item tells of a growing anxiety that something wicked this way comes.

In what may be seen as an ominous case of synchronicity, earthquake and tsunami drills were held all over the world in the last month.

On Wednesday, tens of thousands of residents of Oakland, California were shocked when their cell phones buzzed with a message: there had been no earthquake. Though intended to reassure them that the earthquake warning system was operational, many took it is an ominous reminder that they lived in a region with a history of seismic catastrophes… Earthquake drills were also held in other places around the U.S including Connecticut and Colorado.

On Tuesday, sections of the East Coast, including New Jersey and the Virgin Islands, held tsunami drills. Over the last month, a major drill preparing for earthquakes and tsunamis was held throughout the Philippines for the first time. Over the last two months, drills were held in Indonesia, Dominican Republic, Trinidad and Tobago, and several other nations.

Israel was also part of this informal global seismic drill. Two weeks ago, the Home Front Command held a tsunami exercise in schools throughout the country for the first time. (“End-of-Days Expert: Disaster Drills, Sign ‘Governments Know Something Big is Coming’” by Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz, Breaking Israel News, March 29, 2019)

The growing alarm among those in Israel as well as among the people of the world at large was brought to the attention  of journalists by Yuval Ovadia. He is an Israeli writer/researcher who has produced films on feared disasters that might be in prospect for the planet. Ovadia has been tracking such drills and government preparations as part of his research into the subject of the pre-Messiah astronomical event.

Ovadia commented, “Everyone, secular and religious, from every country, is talking about the end-of-days. It is clear that there is some knowledge out there driving this. So many governments are preparing for a global crisis, something unprecedented. The governments making these drills know that something big is coming.”

“It is understandable to hold hurricane drills or the like in a specific season,” Ovadia emphasized. “But there is no season for earthquakes. It is remarkable that so many countries decided to hold earthquake drills at the same time.”

While Ms. Cortez and her millennial brothers and sisters are looking for a coming calamity upon the planet within twelve years and the nations are expecting earthquakes and tsunamis of prodigious proportions, there seems no such mindset among–of all people–the people who call Jesus Christ their Savior and Lord.

I’m not talking about the fact that these people simply are not worried because they know they are safely within His wonderful arms. No. I’m saying here that these don’t seem to have even a clue–nor do they seem to think deeply enough on the matters to care–that there is in fact coming upon this planet a catastrophe so enormous that only a few creatures of flesh and blood will survive.

In America, the ignorance seems willful. It starts in the pulpits, with preachers who won’t touch Bible prophecy. Or, if they do touch on it, it isn’t even near the truth about what God’s Word has pronounced on this rebellious, judgment-bound world.

Of course, it is equally the fault of Christians who prefer to not think about the things we are supposed to be discerning, especially as the day of Christ’s return is appearing on the near horizon. Such things are gloom and doom–a downer. Best to just go about life ignoring such things. What will be, will be…

The end-of-the-world mindset held by those who are totally of the world–not Christ’s–is right, that something wicked this way comes. There is coming upon the earth the terrors they are expecting–and much worse.

But it will not be a tsunami that crashes across the upper east coast of the U.S. and destroys their precious New York City. It won’t be the man-made, climate-change, rising sea level that chokes the life out of them and all that is upon the earth. And it is not necessarily due twelve years from now. The catastrophe that is coming is from above. It is the harpazo–the snatching away of millions of Christians in the Rapture.

Jesus said that the very moment it happens, God’s judgment will fall–just like in the days of Noah and Lot’s day in Sodom.

Thankfully, God is not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. May all of those with the end-of-the-world mindset look to Christ, for He is the only salvation available to them. May the Church begin to truly watch for their Lord, who could call them to Himself, literally, at any moment. And may we who belong to Christ begin living life accordingly.

    I often wonder why people don’t love bible prophecy, I actually love to read what Our God will do, first of all take all who follow the Son out before all the misery comes, I sometimes think it isn’t so much of the doom and gloom as much as it is they are not ready, I look forward to his coming, I am ready to leave this planet, I don’t know about most people but when I see all this murder of the innocent babies in the womb, the one place a child should feel the safest my heart is so broken. I recently watched the trailer to the movie ‘unplanned” and heard the woman speak who that movie is about and her story of why she changed her life hit me in my heart, how many times have I heard people say that a child in the womb in the 1st tri-mester cannot feel and is not a human being I just want to scream. Her story if you have not heard it you should. It broke my heart literally. Being a mother of 3 and a grandmother of 3 beautiful little girls 2 are only 4 months the other is 2. Oh my gosh it is so disheartening, when I think of them I want nothing to hurt them, nothing, these people who believe and say such things I have only one word…Demonic….
    When I see the world calling Israel evil, a nation who is the only democracy in the whole region, I have only one word…Demonic..
    When I see our own government and how they are so heavy in child porn…my stomach turns with only one word on my lips…demonic
    I am mortified of all that is being said and done on this planet which humanity is doing. I apologize to the Lord for the behavior of these people.
    Our own christian community embracing all religions and no longer believing Christ as the one and only Sovereign Savior. I am appalled at what I see taking place.
    My only hope and what I say to out loud when I see this behavior is Lord you are coming for us just like you promised and you will save us from this evil generation. Some might think calling this generation evil is a bit much but that is how I see it Evil.
    May the Lord bless us all and help us continue to pray for these people, they need our prayers, I was reading 1 Timothy today and Paul reminds us to pray for all people and so we may live a quiet life. God bless you all and pray for the world needs us to intercede.

    Thanks for the information. Yes, I believe that the Lord’s return in the Rapture is very near. Most Christians don’t know what to expect in the future. Those Christians who love His appearing will earn the Crown of Righteousness (2 Timothy 4:8). His return will stimulate them to live righteous lives. He that has this hope purifies himself (1 John 3:3).

    Seems that most millennials these days are doing
    their bit to “save the planet”. A desperate bid to
    avert a coming disaster by controlling any man
    made adverse effects on the environment. The
    globalists cartel and their boss, Satan, have really
    done a number on these deluded individuals,
    converted to environmental salvation. But alas,
    their salvation strategy will go up in smoke, literally!
    After the rapture of the church in rev 4:1 the blessed
    hope that any Christian should be eagerly awaiting.
    Titus 2:13 (KJV)
    13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious
    appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus
    Christ;
    Come rev 6:1, there will be no escaping the horrors
    that will befall the earth although salvation will still
    be possible and many will receive Christ as their
    Saviour, thanks to Jesus! I believe all of the bible
    should be taught, 2 Tim 3:16-17. Why ministers
    avoid prophecy is a mystery to me, you’d think
    salvation and having the congregation understand
    the season that they are living in would be a priority.

    Thanks Terry.

    Mark {13:35} Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: {13:36} Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. {13:37} And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch. (Jesus is the speaker of this passage.)

    Well, guess what?

    As Terry said in this article, even those comprising the so-called “church” today ain’t watching!! Now it is understandable that the secularists are clueless as to what lies ahead but for those whose job it is to educate the rest of us about the Bible accurately, I feel they are without excuse for failing to do so.

    I remember several conversations with people who attended seminary as long as twenty years ago saying that even then, Bible Prophecy was barely covered. Twenty years ago! Seems fairly certain that this has not improved over the years.

    What it comes down to is it becoming a believer’s individual responsibility to acquire this knowledge on their own. Fortunately we have people like Terry James and people like him who take their Bibles seriously to make that job a lot easier.

    One day we will all stand before Jesus and give account of ourselves. For those who accepted him, there will be rewards. For those who have willingly rejected him, there will be judgment and condemnation.

    For those who never had the knowledge or capacity to decide, I am sure that he will certainly deal with them compassionately and they, too, will get to spend eternity with him in heaven.

    By the way, going off-topic, what does it say about the state of our society when we see members of the radical left gaining credibility and even public office?

    Looks like a classic case of the blind leading the blind!
