Many Christians Will Be Left Behind!
the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth [will
let], until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be
revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and
shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: [Even him], whose coming is
after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
Terrorist acts, mass shootings, sporadic rioting and every other type of violence you can imagine are all increasing in these last hours just as Christ warned us they would. Some are succumbing to the spirit of this world and many others have become numb. They have made a conscious choice to ignore what is going on in the world around them and to focus on the increasingly little happiness that can still be found in the pleasures of this world. This is extremely dangerous thinking for Christians because they will not be ready when He comes as a thief.
This is the same behavior displayed by MKULTRA slaves; they compartmentalize their lives to the point where the psyche creates entire different personalities to deal with life. Somewhere deep down they realize this, but it is a crude, yet effective coping mechanism. The public at large is being exposed to the exact same techniques for the exact same reason; to create mind controlled slaves. One must never forget the tools of Satan wielded by the NWO against the people; manipulation, intimidation and domination towards the goal of control.
America's embracing of homosexuality in these last moments before the rapture of the church only serves to further cement our spiritual connection to Sodom, and Babylon. The only thing holding this world back from the brink of total chaos is the presence of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of those who keep their garments by washing them in the blood of the Lamb whenever we sin. Scripture tells us that it is only once we're gone that the Antichrist will be revealed.
Why Will Many Be Left Behind?
And that which fell among thorns are they, which,
when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and
pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.
Unlike the world we as Christians have an alternative. We must train ourselves not to go to the pleasures of this world when we hurt, but to the foot of the cross. Jesus died not only for our salvation, but our healing both physical and spiritual (1 Peter 2:24 KJV). We all like to take a break and get lost in some activity for a time, but when it becomes dissociative behavior it is not a healthy coping mechanism. We must not sate our wounded souls with the tonics of this world, whether they be drugs and alcohol or television and video games which can be just as bad.
And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer
darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
One must remember that the unprofitable servant is cast into the outer darkness, which is Hell. There are no quotas for works to get into Heaven, however those who 'bring no fruit' are rejected. Why? Simply because if you've planted what you know to be good seed (the Word of God) but it didn't bring forth fruit you would blame the ground, and rightly so.
I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the
The only way that seed will grow is if it is constantly watered and tended to, especially in this spiritual desert we find ourselves in these last days. Yes, God will send others to instruct and chastise us when need be, but what the reader of God's Word will soon discover is the gospel Paul preached is different from what is preached today. They teach that you must go to church and have a pastor feed you when scripture tells us we need no man but the Holy Spirit to teach us (1 John 2:27 KJV).
The churches feed us “spiritual Happy Meals”, junk food for the soul, but when a person feasts on the Word of God they never thirst again. We must learn to water that seed by immersing ourselves in the Word of God and prayer daily. When we do this He will give the increase, causing us to grow as Christians.
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be
accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to
stand before the Son of man.
But what of those left behind after the rapture? Who will warn them and minister to them? In speaking about the tribulation in the book of Luke Jesus made it clear that only some Christians would be found worthy to escape it. Why?
Living in Compromise with This World
He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias
prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me
with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
Some will be left behind because they live their lives in compromise with this world. If they repent they will become the tribulation saints who must be martyred for the faith after the church age has ended. The rapture of the church will be the ultimate wake up call for multitudes. Others will be left behind because they continued to indulge in their pet sins thinking there was no pre-tribulation rapture and He came as a thief upon them. And yet others will miss out because they rationalized their sin to the point that it was no longer sin to them, their consciences seared as with a hot iron.
If you feel yourself in bondage to a certain sin but unable to escape you must cry out to God! Do not allow your conscience to become seared by habitual unconfessed sin. Do not sweep it under a rug either. While our pet sins may be hidden to the world, God sees our filthy hearts. We must be brave, we must confront our sins head on. We must take them to the cross and plead for mercy and strength with a contrite heart.
Oh my friends, I don't want to see a single one of you spend eternity in Hell because you couldn't lay down a certain besetting sin. On the other hand, please remember that our battle isn't over until after we have drawn our last breath on this earth. We will struggle with some form of sin as long as we are here, but that's the thing, we struggle with it. We must never give in to it, but fight our flesh at every turn. Don't ever throw up your hands and give up the battle, but cry out to God.
For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly
Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses,
neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
How many souls who would otherwise be going to Heaven will miss out solely because they held unforgiveness towards someone in their hearts? This is the result of judging others who have wronged us in some perceived manner. The media is complicit in this area, just take a moment to think of all the TV and movies your soul has consumed where unforgiveness and subsequently revenge are displayed. We think we are entitled to our pound of flesh, yet God teaches that vengeance is His alone (Romans 12:19 KJV).
And the truth of the matter is that when we consume unforgiveness it in turn consumes us. I am wary to ever use another human being as an example, but I want to leave you with a powerful video of a man whose daughter was brutally murdered by a serial killer and what he said when he confronted him in court.

It's All About Our Hearts
And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn
unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and
of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.
Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that
commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their
deeds. And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall
know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto
every one of you according to your works.
After all has been said and done there is only one thing that matters to God; the condition of our hearts. We must constantly have our flesh under scrutiny and examine our hearts because He searches them continually. This is one of the ministries of the Holy Spirit, to expose sin. Will we ignore that still, small voice or heed it?
What of when others warn us? We must always examine ourselves, but tragically most will ignore and even persecute the messenger of God for obeying the Holy Spirit, thereby grieving Him. If God has sent someone to warn you it is likely because you are not hearing the Holy Spirit for yourself which is a most dangerous position to be in.
The most important thing you should take from this article is this: There is no future in this world for you, or anyone. While temporary pleasure may still be found in sin the eternal price is just not worth it. Repent now and turn away from sin. Ask God to help you because your eternity depends on it.
