In 1871, in the city of Chicago, the evening of October 8th, there began a tragedy of a cow kicking over a lantern creating a fire which burned a good portion of the city killing 300 people, lasting three days! It brings to mind two issues regarding end-time events: (1) I heard someone once said Sodom and Gomorrah was not burned because of the perversion which existed. (2) A sincere Jehovah’s Witness shared with me it is his/their belief God will not destroy the world with fire using the text,
“And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.” Jer 32:35 (KJV)!!!
How someone can take this particular text and apply it to end-time events when the Bible is full of fire and brimstone, which God clearly will use to purify this earth and the destruction of sinners, is beyond me.
There seems to be this denial a “God of Love” would be able to destroy His people by such a horrible method denying what He did to those by a flood. They have not read the account of how parents tied their children to goats, which are sure-footed and cannot stumble when climbing mountains in order to escape the increasing crises. It is a denial of history which accounts for the warning Christ gave regarding the destruction of the Temple and how the people crowded inside thinking this would afford protection, unbeknownst to them that firebrand which was tossed into an open window would cause the precious metals to melt and the timber to burn creating such a devastated heat which pressed against those Jewish bodies causing a river of blood to flow beneath the Temple doors into the street of the city.
They are not cognizant of the command from God which will occur soon when He instructs His angels who are holding the four winds of strife which will soon sweep across this planet with tragedy never before witnessed. These will be natural calamities; however, what about the terrible burnings we see of Christians today because of madmen in the name of God! Why is it so easy to ignore these events? I thought about those men who were recently beheaded and wondered what I would have done had I lived in that vicinity. It’s easy to “think” what we would have done while we lay back on king and queen-sized, 400 thread-count cotton sheets, watching plasma high-definition television. However, the case, it won’t be much longer for those who are in disbelief how terrible our times are and are becoming when it won’t matter you are living in the protected communities of the United States and other so-called civilized communities of the world.
God is sending Jesus on an errand and it’s to pick up some people to bring home with Him. And what He will leave behind will be a fire you have no idea which is going to purge, burn, destroy, purify this old earth and there will be plenty of people having to go through this oven of affliction, and I can assure you of this one fact, it will not be Mrs. O’Leary’s cow having kicked over an oil lantern.
People, get ready!
