Who is wise enough to understand this……… Jeremiah 9:12………..and who has God’s command to proclaim it? Isaiah 50:4-7, John 12:37-41
In these last days of the present era, scripture tells us that the Church will, in general, be compromising and have many different ideas of what the future holds. But there are believers who are willing to listen to teaching based soundly on the Word, as presented to us through the prophets. It will be these believers who will be better prepared to face these end time challenges and afflictions. Especially keep in mind that God’s promises are addressed to the faithful remnant who truly believe and trust in Him, true Christian believers and only that remnant will be protected on the Lord’s Day of vengeance and wrath, then later, during the terrible time of Satan’s domination, until the glorious Return of Jesus.
It is sad that many pastors and teachers base their eschatology on traditional doctrines of their denomination or particular theological school, and thereby fail to carefully ascertain what scripture really means. Or when a text does not fit their current beliefs, then they allegorise it, spiritualise it, culturalize it or rationalize it, to fit whatever they think how God should act.
