Coming Soon: TEOTWAWKI, By Sharon Gilbert
Coming Soon: TEOTWAWKI

By SHARON K. GILBERT
September 22, 2008

WHAT IF you received a letter this morning telling you that the world would completely transform in just one week — that September 30th marks ‘The End of The World As We Know It” (TEOTWAWKI)? No, I’m not setting a date. I’m proposing a possibility.

September 30/October 1st represents the Jewish New Year, celebrated as Rosh Hashanah (’head of the year’). This remarkable ‘Feast of Trumpets’ covers a span of two days because the actual beginning of the feast coincides with the first sighting of the new moon, confirmed by ‘two witnesses’. In other words, no man knows the ‘day or the hour’ when Rosh Hashanah will begin, save God Almighty. This is one reason that some prophecy scholars (myself included) believe the Rapture could fall during this two-day feast.

Ok, I can already imagine the comments this post will likely get, but let me ask you to set aside any arguments just for a moment, for the point of this article is not whether or not Jesus will translate His Bride on Rosh Hashanah. No, the reason I am writing this is to challenge each of you (and myself) to prayerfully, honestly consider the implications of meeting Christ face-to-face one week from now.

I’ve been thinking about this possibility for about a month now, especially as I watch the Tribulation World coalesce before my very eyes.

• The nationalization of US banks (come one, isn’t that what this ‘bail-out’ boils down to?) deals a crushing blow to individual financial freedom.
• Israel is in both a political and defensive crisis (yes, Livni has received Peres’s approval to form a government — what, you didn’t know Shimon Peres is still running things? — but that government is very shaky, and you can bet Israel’s enemies will take advantage of it).
• Russia senses a shift in world power and is positioning its assets to fill the void once the US finishes imploding.
• Tony Blair’s “Faith Foundation” is setting up the Whore of Babylon. [link to tonyblairfaithfoundation.org]
• And we are just over 4 years shy of the Aion Sunteleia, or ‘The End of the Age’ (see Matthew 24:4). [link to www.blueletterbible.org]
I mention this, because I personally believe this would be a likely date for the ‘Abomination of Desolation’ to occur — the ‘deification of Antichrist’ to coincide with the ‘rising of the Sun out of the mouth of the Dragon’ (Leviathan).

Yes, I could delve more deeply into each of the bullet points, and I could add dozens more, but again that is not the reason for this post.

If Jesus sent you a personal letter telling you that this year’s ‘Feast of Trumpets’ is when He’s scheduled to return, if you KNEW you had but one week to continue on earth, what would you change?

• Would you panic?
• Would you simply throw up your hands in resignation?
• Would you go on a week-long bender?

• Or would you ‘redeem the time’ and tell as many as possible that Jesus loves them and that the Bible has revealed what must surely happen in the final seven years of the world as we know it?

What you say now — what you do now — could help change the eternal destination for someone.

If you are a member of the Body of Christ — if you know Christ as personal Savior, then you are ’salt and light’ to a world that is dangerously close to decay and darkness.

Sure, we might all wake up on October 2nd and find the world is still spinning and sinning just like it always has — but what if we don’t?

Trust me, I’m preaching to myself here! Let us each make today count for Christ.

Do you know Him as Savior or is Jesus Christ just a name to you? Jesus is the risen Lamb of God, which means He provided the only ‘perfect’ sacrifice to cover all of your sins and mine. We can’t earn our salvation — we can only receive it by accepting Christ’s substitutionary sacrifice.

But have you accepted it?

If not, please read the Gospel of John (New Testament). [link to www.blueletterbible.org]
There you’ll discover how much Jesus loves you — and how He died for you — and that He rose again!

And He’s coming back — perhaps in a week or so.

Are you ready?

Basically I have already accepted this premise. It's just a matter of which week kicks it off. While this financial stuff is ominous, I won't be truly worried until it's combined with a natural and/or manmade disaster of epic proportions. Then I plan to panic a little.

Thankfully, the end of this age will mark the end of Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, etc. I cannot wait for it to begin. The fact is, there was no jesus, and there may not even be a "god" as we think of it. All there is, likely, is our eternal, undying spirit. We just don't need a "god" or a savior and we don't need a primitive, ignorgant religion to frighten us into worship of a non-existent savior.

Quite frankly it is hard enough for me to keep my own head in the game, let alone witnessing and ministering to others. Maybe that's a cop-out, i dunno. But I have a hard enough time keeping sin out of my life that I don't need huge arguments over my beliefs and ideas.

That is just plain evil & delusional. To wish someone a "horrible eternity" just because they do not suscribe to your beliefs.

You should really practice some of the kindness & compassion represented by that man you believe is god.

It is a bitter pill, I know.

But it is neither evil nor delusional. It is Biblical. But God doesn't want people to suffer. He wants us to live. We simply have to believe and accept His solution to our problems. Anyone who suffers spiritually does so in rebellion to God and His plan for us. Rejection really is a self-inflicted suffering.

By the way, this poster has not demonstrated that he/she wishes a 'horrible eternity' on anyone. He is just communicating what's in the Bible. It's simply a warning.

We can choose to focus on the fear of the consequences of rejecting God, or we can choose to focus on the love of God. He is a loving God, but He is also a just God. You have free will to choose which side of that equation you want to be on.

The choice is yours.

Peace.

Is it necessary to shout? Does that make you feel better?

Perhaps you don't recognize my efforts here at GLP, as I 'prove' it here daily. But that's OK, I'm glad to help.

Try the Advanced Search feature here as there are probably a few hundred pages of information available to you concerning Salvation.

Here are just a few Bible verses for you:

"Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt." (Daniel 12:2)

"Then he will say to those on his left, “Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.” Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life." (Matt. 25:41,46)

"If anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire." (Rev. 20:15)

There are Bible scholars much more articulate than me who show in the Bible the concepts of hell and eternal punishment. I'm not going to reinvent the wheel here as I believe these texts to be accurate reflections of my studies of the Bible. Here's a little something for you that should help:

[link to www.gotquestions.org]
[link to www.gotquestions.org]

But we really don't need to dwell on rejection & consequences. Choose life and be reassured in the presence of God's love. That's the good news of God's Word in the Bible!

Peace.
