Introduction: Part of the End Time Series

Our LORD, Our Father, the One True God, formed, made, and created everything from nothing to something. His powerful Word makes things exist; everything is impossible, but He made it possible. He formed a man from dust and gave life; He separated the waters to give way for lands to exist; He put the sun for us to enjoy the day and the moon to brighten the night. He provided us with plants and vegetables for food to eat and some for healing. God did everything well, but humans did the opposite way. Eat unhealthy foods and prescription drugs that heal with side effects that need another drug prescription. As a result, humans are continuously destroying God’s creations overall.

He sent the Son to save His creations but was killed in return. The Son said He was coming soon; many were waiting and disappointed because they did not witness His coming soon. Jesus said He was coming soon, but how soon is soon? They asked. Those who lack knowledge of the Bible will get lost. The Bible mentioned the coming judgment, and many believe that is the time Jesus is coming back, which made the 2nd coming of Jesus away from the truth. The Bible says no one knows when the Son is coming soon; even the angels and Son don’t know when it is coming. But those passages are about the end of the ages—two different events. The Spirit of God is in us; whoever has the Spirit of God has God, and Jesus has the same Spirit but a different persona and attributes.

Jesus already came the 2nd time, which is the fulfillment of the promise coming soon. We must consider that Jesus does not lie and that the coming soon is literal. Mark 13:30 says, “Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have happened.” But I tell you truly, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the Kingdom of God. Matthew 10:23, Mark 9:1; 13:30; Luke 9:27. Matthew 16:28-Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his Kingdom. Matthew 23:36- Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation. Matthew 24:34- Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

“While we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ” (NIV). This common translation’s lack of clarity only led to the confusion of many and disagreement among Christian believers, which, until this generation, the divided doctrine of unity brought the belief of the Oneness of Christ. It would have been easy to say so unambiguously if Paul had clearly spoken of two persons.

Titus 2:13 ESV says, “We are waiting for our blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ. “The passage is identical to 2 Peter 1:1. Different Bible versions state, “It is of the great God and of our Savior Jesus Christ.” It is unclear if they are talking about two different entities.

In NLV-“We are to be looking for the great hope and the coming of our great God and the One Who saves Christ Jesus.” This is a more clearly translated version and is logically identical to each other in the following versions: the GNV, CJB, DRA, NLV, and RGT. Again, some versions offer translation without clarity:” Read like this: While we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.”

The coming of the Almighty God will be with the Son Jesus as a faithful witness- Revelation 1:5. Revelation 1:8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.” Those passages clarify the distinction between the Almighty God Yahweh and the mighty Son Yeshua (Jesus).

The Spirit is one, and all the inhabitants of this earth can access it if they believe. Whether you are a believer or not, we breathe life through the Spirit. But, you may ask, what Spirit? The Spirit of life that was given to Adam. The same Spirit Adam took with him when they were kicked out of the Garden of Eden.

Nonetheless, the Spirit of God is within us, and by the influence and work of the Holy Spirit, we may be able to discern false teachers, prophets, their idols (gods), and lords (masters). By faith in Christ Jesus, we come to God justified and sanctified, which will lead us to eternal life and guide us to come to God by faith in Christ, which rewards us. The end is near, and every Moderation expects it to be soon, although some believers say it is ongoing, and others say it’s just a make-believe agenda so people can have something to fear. VOICE: You see, God did not give us a cowardly spirit but a powerful, loving, and disciplined spirit. 2 Timothy 1:7.

We might experience world unrest, and humanity’s influence slowly changes today’s civilization, but is it good or bad? According to the Bible, we know how it will end, but do we know how it will begin? God is full of compassion for humans, but humans otherwise are pushing God’s patience. God can spare a country or the whole world if we return to Him and acknowledge Him to take over. He gave us free will, but many misused it chose the wrong path and stopped seeking His face (truth), not even calling Him LORD. Many are lost calling Lord instead of LORD.

The knowledge of the End Time spread like wildfire centuries ago, and many called it millennialism. This belief did not happen. Due to hard times, many await this end to happen sooner, and many are more focused on the coming of Jesus. Also, many think there is no hope for this world; people against people, nations against nations, regional and worldwide, and it worsens daily.

However, faithful believers are not shaken; they believe God will soon intervene and save humanity from total destruction. God’s will is for humanity to exist forever. However, this does not threaten God’s supremacy because His powerful Word, which can create, make, and form anything, is more than enough weapon to suppress any threat. His steadfastness and merciful attributes are the pattern we can see in God’s will and purpose: to let these things happen.

The Kingdom has come, and God will give humanity their domain to rule, and everything will be peaceful living, an abundance of blessings and prosperity that will give happiness. We should learn our lesson from ancient Israel, who had always turned their backs on God and worshiped idols. We must avoid the errors of the past, and we will receive eternal joy. We cannot express this by mouth but by our heart and the testimony of our conscience.

With this in mind, we must recognize that End Time’s events are hard to imagine. The consequences of our iniquities will have their apportioned punishment and eventually reach their end. Nevertheless, we have God, so we must not waste our time. God is delighted if we talk to Him daily, day and night.
