It Was Supposed To Be Today

Today is the day that the Rapture was supposed to happen, according to one video content creator. It is past the time of day that he offered, offering it even down to the hour. Another has stated it will happen in August, and yet others are proclaiming we must wait until Passover of next year.

“Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” (1st Thess. 4:18)

I do not search out these videos, if I happen to see one, I go to it and usually do no more than look at the “Show more” under the title and then read several of the comments. It is not the one who is offering these false prophecies that I am particularly concerned with, but those who follow them, for they are, to quote an old movie line, searching for a handle on the moment. For some reason they want to escape, and I say this because they do not seem to desire to continue in the work that, if they are indeed saved, has been set before them.

“Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.” (Matt. 24:46)

Working, my friends, is not sitting around watching, it is not searching for a particular moment in time, waiting to be removed. It is not trying to figure out God’s timeline.

Personal fear, fear for most of these not even realized but only imagined in their mind is what drives these individuals to these types of channels, for there is no sound Biblical teaching on them, only hopes continuously moved a little further forward in time. And yet they follow, begging him or her for another day, another prophecy so they have something to look forward to with some semblance of hope.

I have posed the following question to some of those desperately seeking souls in the comments section, and rarely have received an answer, “Would you rather die tomorrow or be caught up in the Rapture?”

They have no oil in their lamps, there is no fire in them to seek for the lost, there is no ability in them to see they are being led astray. “Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.” (Matt. 15:14)

They are scared, frightened, misled souls grasping at any possible word that will give them some hope. The hope of the cross is not enough for them. It does not require them to go out into the world to be fearful, simply the images on their screens will do that.

How fearful are you? If you spend any time at all watching the approaching darkness, does it cause anxiety in you, or do you see opportunities to reach out to those who are consumed by the darkness of these days, to offer them the hope of not a particular moment in time, but of an eternity of life in the presence of the Living God?

The world has always been an evil place, there is great physical danger for the one that has determined to stand on the Rock of our salvation, it has always been like this. “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.” (2nd Tim. 3:12)

I personally believe that the majority of these people that are being deceived by those false prophets do not want to be in the presence of the Lord, they want to escape their fear, for 1st John 4:18 stands as a truth. “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”

We do not desire persecutions, but we expect them, the fellowship of the suffering of the Lord Jesus Christ is the path of the one who has been crucified with Him. If you go to these channels, do not tarry long there, the pearls of God are not to be cast before swine.
