Stand Firm In Christ To The Very End

There is a lot going on in this crazy world right now. The devil’s one world government is rising, and we saw many signs of the times in 2020. As 2021 begins, we are moving forward rapidly to the fulfillment of prophecy. Believers in Jesus must stand firm in Him and be ready for His return at any moment. We have great hope in Jesus, and we do not need to be afraid. We must not bow to the new world order! We bow to our Lord and Savior alone!

It is clear in God’s Word that we will not know the exact time or date of the Lord’s return, but we will know the times by the “birth pains” we see. Let us keep our eyes fixed on Jesus and rest in His peace as we see the world falling apart.

“No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.”

-Jesus speaking in Matthew 24:36-37

“As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”

Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.”

-Matthew 24:3-8

Indeed, there have been many false Christs appearing, and we see all kinds of wars and rumors of wars, and natural disasters. We see the beast system of the antichrist being pushed as “The Great Reset,” which includes preparations for the mark of the beast with the introduction of Digital ID in the form of a microchip and talk of a one world currency. We see an increase in wickedness and the love of most growing cold. We see historic unrest, riots, and violence. We see many false preachers, false prophets, and false churches, and we have seen many people who claimed to know Jesus turn away from the faith under threat of persecution. And of course, we have been living through the chaos caused by the releasing of the Covid virus. We even see the new world order pushing alien propaganda now because that is how they will lie to explain the Rapture when millions of Christians are snatched up to Heaven by the Lord. None of this has stopped in 2021. In fact, we will most likely continue to see these things increase, and we must stand firm in Christ.

“Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”

-Jesus speaking in Matthew 24:9-14

Jesus was clear that this world will be in absolute chaos before His return. We are most definitely seeing the build up to that time in our time, but do not lose heart. Our redemption is drawing near!

“So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the desert,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. For as lighting that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Wherever there is a carcass, there the vultures will gather.

Immediately after the distress of those days

” ‘the sun will be darkened,

and the moon will not give its light;

the stars will fall from the sky,

and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’

“At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.”

-Jesus speaking in Matthew 24:26-31

“Then Jesus said to them: “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.”

-Luke 21:10-11

“There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”

-Jesus speaking in Luke 21:25-28

Again, we will not know the exact time or date of these things, but we are living through the birth pains leading up to His return. We must not bow to the devil’s one world communist government! Believers in Jesus belong to Him, and we must stand firm in the truth of His Word by the power of His Holy Spirit!

This is how I preached it on Twitter today:

I will not bow, nor will I give my consent, to this evil that has come upon the earth in our time! I am hated because of my faith in Jesus, and I may even be killed, but I pray for the strength, courage, and wisdom to endure these times in a way that honors, pleases, and glorifies the Lord! My eyes are on Jesus and my head is lifted high because our redemption is drawing near! We have nothing to fear in Jesus. This world is not our home. We have great hope in Jesus and He will come back to rescue us!

“Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. According to the Lord’s own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words.”

-1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

“Now, brothers, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be alert and self-controlled. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”

-1 Thessalonians 5:1-11

If you do not know Jesus, please repent and turn to Jesus! Put your faith in Him alone, and He will save your soul!

“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. As the Scripture says, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame.” For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile–the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

-Romans 10:9-13

May the Lord’s will be done in the times we are living in, Jesus is Lord! Amen, Come, Lord Jesus!

Grace and peace to you all!

  1. Excellent, Ryan. We are not simply “heading” toward the end of the age, but ROCKETING toward it. Things are happening so quickly, and we can hardly catch our breath.

    Yes, the prophecies of Matthew 24, the Book of Revelation, 1 Thessalonians 4 & 5, and a slew of others, are beginning to see fruition. The birth pains are getting more severe, and closer in duration.

    Forge up for Christ, Ryan!

  3. Excellent post, Ryan, and so important for every soul know, thank you for posting these scriptures. That Jesus told us what to expect on how he comes back, what will happen leading up to it, our encouragement to one another, and that God wants us to be with him, is so awesome, it’s beyond any words I can express! Amen.

  4. Wake us up, Wake us up, Wake us up Lord, Toby Mac said it best. We are indeed in times that I grew up learning of, and now they are here. I want so many people that are still asleep, and oblivious to the times we are living in to be awakened by something God does in their lives. I am praying fervently for all my family, and friends who don’t know God to see what I see, to have the open heart surgery to accept Jesus.

    Thank you for your bold share, keep on keeping on! Blessings, and we have to stand firm. We will be rattled as believers in times to come. We would be foolish not to see what is coming, and be in prayer so we are ready spiritually. We have to go out each day with the full armor of God to face what awaits us, and will soon be even more. God bless!

  5. God bless you my brother.

    💎- Malachi 3:2
    And who can bear the time of his coming? Or who can stand when he shows up? Because he’s like purifying fire, and like washing machine soap.

    The words God puts in your mouth are being crucial to the life of many Christ Comes Soon to God be Glory forever, thank you my brother for being a preacher of God’s truth….📖✒💎
