Righteousness Will Increase And Evil Will Be Intensified

(Mark.13:1-36)

There will be severe trials, difficulties, afflictions, pain, persecutions, beheading, burning alive, hardship and unbelievable and unheard of cruelties to the saints of God in Christ as the end draws near. People will even think they are doing God some services by being cruel to the saints.

It will get worse as we approach the closing of this age. He that is unjust, let him be unjust still. He that is filthy, let him be filthy still. He that is righteous, let him be righteous still. He that is holy, let him be holy still. Behold, the Lord is coming soon and quickly; and His reward is with Him, to give every man according as his work shall be. He is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and Last.

Mark.13 reveals the end time events, and categorizes when and what will happen. The saints of God should know that the fire shall try their faith to prove it whether they are of God or not, but the overcomer shall be those who endure to the end, and do not love their lives unto death for His glory and honor.

You think that the ISIS, ISIL, the terrorist groups and all the wicked and evil people who are manifesting themselves throughout the world are bad now, because they do excel in abominable and death defying things, but they will even be greater and get bolder and more powerful towards the end of time. The saints should not be alarmed as though some strange things have happened to them. It was predicted and we should expect them.

What is the divine response to the saints who have gone before us? The answer is in Rev.6:11. “That they should rest for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled”. The scriptures say, “Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you”. (1Pet.4:12)

The Lord begins to enumerate what shall happen and when they will happen to the saints and humanity. Peter, James, John and Andrew wanted to know these things. They ask Him as they were coming out of the Temple saying, “Master, do you see what manner of stones and what buildings are here? Jesus answers them, “Do you see these great buildings? There shall not be left one stone upon another that shall not be thrown down”. (v.2) Christ is saying to them that the magnificent buildings shall be destroyed, and that no buildings will remain eternally and forever. They will all be thrown down and demolished.

They are not satisfied and are still inquisitive and curious about the buildings, prophecies and the end time, so they inquire of Him. He opens up and begins to tell them the things that will take place hereafter.

vv.5-6. “There will be many who will come in the name of Christ saying, “I am Christ, and shall deceive many”. Take heed that you are not deceived. Be very careful of what you hear and see.

vv.7-8. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but you are not to worry and be troubled, for they will surely come, but the end is not yet. If any man tells you that the world will end in 2017, 2020 and 2030, do not listen to them. Nations shall possess the ability and greed to conquer other nations because of what they have. Kingdoms shall be against kingdoms, but the end is not yet.

The center of the earth shall be disturbed, and this will cause earth- quakes in divers places on earth. This is just a fore play of greater things to come. Earthquakes in the last ten years are more than all the previous years combined. Food shortages will arise because of famines, and this will create mega troubles in the whole systems of the world governments across the globe, but the end is not yet, and these are just the beginning of sorrows. Humanity will not have enough to eat, and this will set up all kinds of commotions and riots.

There will be disasters, unrests and troubles, and God people and children will be hated because of Christ their Lord. The families of the earth shall experience chaos, confusion and betrayal to the point of causing the death of their parents. The families shall be divided, and there shall be hatred of Christ and His saints. All these things are already happening, but there shall be greater manifestation of them. The overcomers are those who will endure to the end. They will truly save their souls because they give them up for the riches of Christ their Lord and Master.

They will be unrest throughout the world, and people hearts will begin to fail them, and there will be deaths all over the globe because of the things that are happening. Earthquakes and food shortage, as a result of famines will complicate the unrest of the world, and triggers world chaos. There will be no hope for the 7.5 billion souls of this world, but the only safe place to hide will be to accept Jesus Christ as the Lord, Savior and the Redeemer. He will not allow His people to go unfed and uncared for.

This time will be unprecedented era where the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ will prosper in the midst of the chaos and depravity of man. People will come to the Lord Jesus Christ in drones of 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 100’s and it will rise to an alarming height of 100’s 1000’s and 1,000,000’s. It will be a holy riot of God wherein thousands of millions are swept into the kingdom of God. (v.10)

The end time will be a time of celebrations of Christ where multiplied multitudes will be seeking the Lord Jesus Christ, and receiving Him into their lives, as the Lord of heaven, and the King of glory. There are over 200 Nations and 65 dependent States and Territories, and all will be coming to Christ. The prophecy of the Bible will come to pass which says that the kingdoms of this world are become the Kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign forever and ever. (Rev.11:15) Imagine that, and consider that it is a true statement, and it shall come to pass. What the Church has today is just a child’s play in comparison with what we shall enter into as the end draws near. There will be miracles that will alarm the world, and that cannot be explained by the human minds, save the minds of God and His saints.

God will be the defense of His people in words and through the power of His Spirit. The saints will have an open heaven, and miracles, signs and wonders will rain down from the God who created man in the first place. We shall have heaven on the earth. Hallelujah! There is a place for the overcomers, who are the saints of God, who will be passing through these hard, difficult and horrendous time, as the end draws near. They will live to tell of the faithfulness, mercy, grace, compassion and the everlasting love of our God and of His Son, Jesus Christ. Amen! As the grace of God abound in a much glorious form, evil will be rearing up its ugly head, and the power of darkness will prevail over those who are the children of Belial.

The false teachers, prophets, apostles, pastors, evangelists and all who wear and bear the similitude of Satan, will be recruited by him as the end comes close. They will demonstrate some powers, and engage themselves in miracles, signs and wonders, but they will be revealed for who they really are, and the Spirit of God shall detest them with uttermost wrath. They will go into the place prepared for the devil and his angels, who became disembodied spirit in the rebellion that was fought in heaven, when man has not yet come into the scene at the beginning of time.

In conclusion, I will say, “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still. He that is filthy, let him be filthy still. He that is righteous, let him be righteous still. He that is holy, let him be holy still. Behold, the Lord is coming very soon and quickly; and His reward is with Him, to give every man according as his work shall be. He is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and Last.

He said to humanity, “Come unto me all you that do labor and are heavy laden; and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and you shall find rest unto your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light”. (Matt.11:28-30)

I encourage you to come to Him, and as He said, “You shall fine find rest unto your soul because you have taken His yoke and burden as a result of His meek and lowly heart which you have received into your life.
