One thing we have learned from history is that we have learned nothing from history. Therefore we will make the same mistakes as past generations. Look into why so many Jews were killed in Germany, and you will see why Christians are hated with a vengeance and killed; why Christians won’t be prepared like the Jews were unprepared: believing the lies they were told.
The Lord clearly tells us in His written Word what is coming and the world events and natural disasters that lead up to the Day of His glorious return:
Matthew 24:9-12 NLT
You will be arrested, persecuted, and killed. You will be hated all over the world because you are My followers. And many will turn away from Me and betray and hate each other. And many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people. Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold.
When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of all who had been martyred for the word of God and for being faithful in their testimony. They shouted to the Lord and said, “O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you judge the people who belong to this world and avenge our blood for what they have done to us?” Then a white robe was given to each of them. And they were told to rest a little longer until the full number of their brothers and sisters-their fellow servants of Jesus who were to be martyred – had joined them.
So are you ready? It’s very wise to be prepared spiritually, mentally and physically – for what is certain to come. Listen to the Holy Spirit, for He will show God’s people how to be ready and prepared.
