Jesus Christ used several parables to drive home the timeline of the end of this dark demonic era of human history. One of the most striking parables is of the 10 Virgins. Long story short, some of us will be in a constant state of readiness, while others of us in the Church will fall for some of the delusions of this world. So how can some members of the Church be on alert waiting for Jesus while others fall for the lies of Satan? Because those “5 virgins who had no oil in their lamps” waited till the last minute to notice the signs and then tried to renew their faith (go get oil when it was too late). The consequences of being late are that not only will you suffer during the Great Tribulation, when Satan unleashes his last fury before he is imprisoned for 1,000 years, but you will also have to suffer the Wrath of God that is intended for those who received the mark of the Beast! But what on earth would make some Christians miss the “lamp oil” deadline that Jesus spoke of? They let themselves assume that the children of Satan in the media and government were absolutely to be believed in everything they say, despite the fact these same people hate Jesus Christ. The media and Hollywood will play on all their emotions, including patriotism and manufactured, deliberately planned tragedies, to get them to believe and trust the Beast system. Also, they misunderstand how the timeline of the end of the age will happen. Many Christians, due in part to lazy pastors, think the end of the world system will happen in one magical instance, and then Jesus returns and raptures them. Nothing could be further from the truth. The timeline of the end is very, very complex and extremely time consuming. It’s been going on since Jesus died on the cross! And now that insane world events are happening at record pace, we must realize that Satan’s children need to test out their end time script one country at a time, one group at a time, until it sweeps the world in a hurricane like blitz. It’s a gradual process, not instantaneous. Pay attention. Stay in prayer. Amen.
