“That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of CHRIST is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as GOD sitteth in the temple of GOD, shewing himself that he is GOD.” 2 Thessalonians 2:2-4
NOTE: Jesus CHRIST who delivers us from the wrath to come will not scare you, so, this is for you to gain or remain focused on the AUTHOR and FINISHER of our faith, not being distracted nor tossed around with winds of irrelevant or relevant events that must be before the end of man’s age (the doom Day) Truly, already, new horrors and fear is weighing down the hearts of many in our Nation Today.
Sincerely, For the first time, since I was born, on a total basis, I discovered that many now lives in a constant fear, that, he/she may be the next victim of kidnapping, war, bomb, polluted air, contamination, famine, earthquake, overpopulation etc. See, those things have the entire world, in a pall of a deadly fear that is inescapable, not just Nigeria.
As for Nigeria, FG/SG/NA/CAN among many others can try every system they want but they’ll never stop many from greed, from crime, from lust, from all of these other things. Some will always kill. Many will always make war; some will always lie; some will always cheat; some will always steal; some will always overindulge; some will always pollute; some will always make waste; some will always hate; some will always rebel. Because he/she is a sinner; he/she is depraved; he/she is deceitful above all things; he/she is desperately wicked and he/she cannot change oneself even with #itbeginswithyou, #change, #nextlevel, etc.
Of course, the privileges all of us are enjoying (1) GOD has restrained lawlessness in the world with Holy SPIRIT in whoever accept HIS love, obtained Salvation, living holiness, loving and fearing GOD for real. or (2) HE is Still influencing everyone’s conscience in one way or the other as a portion of HIS Grace, giving as many as possible chance to reconcile with HIM before the deal Day (Study Roman 5:8; John 3:16). But as said earlier, many would arrogantly not heed. “How shall we escape if we neglect so great salvation?” Hebrews 2:3. Ahh! Many Christians are being distracted and deceived while many are willingly accepting and practicing heresies plus greed in place of truth plus holiness(Study 2 Peters 2:1-onward).
Brethren, Someday, somehow, as you can see in life of backsliders, if not cautioned and guided back as fast as possible, gradually, the restraints is going to be taken out. The SPIRIT of GOD will leave as a restraining influence. So, with absence of Holy SPIRIT in someone’s life, evil in practice draws sins, sins draws wrath=death=doom as its pains previews would increase more than it is now while good virtues drops, even as religious worship centres increases.
On a final note, As for You Christian, take your stand! Hear what the SPIRIT is saying, heed, and meet up. The Scripture tells us that as many as love Jesus CHRIST will be taken out of the world before the main doom drill. That’s our hope, isn’t it? Be sure of your salvation, Love and fear GOD, escape the wrath or dooms that looms! stay focused! Peace be unto You!
