Love takes no pleasure in evil, but rejoices in the truth ♥ 1 Corinthians 13:6

Unequaled

Lucky duckies. No one wants to abort them. People actually find it more of a noble cause to save them should they become endangered. We find ourselves living in such a time when human life is no longer valuable and putting an end to the future generation is ideal.

But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,”

2 Timothy 3:1-2 NIV

“I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.’”

Isaiah 46:10 NIV

Not too long ago, I saw a quick satire mentioning the Left Behind series. While people are entitled to have their opinion, being left behind in the most cataclysmic time the world will ever know is no joking matter to a serious believer in Jesus Christ. People have differing opinions on whether believers will end up being here during the reign of the man of lawlessness (2 Thessalonians 2:1-4), but it is clear that God’s judgment is reserved for the unrepentant and wicked.

The men turned away and went toward Sodom, but Abraham remained standing before the Lord. 23 Then Abraham approached him and said: “Will you sweep away the righteous with the wicked? 24 What if there are fifty righteous people in the city? Will you really sweep it away and not spare the place for the sake of the fifty righteous people in it? 25 Far be it from you to do such a thing—to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike. Far be it from you! Will not the Judge of all the earth do right?

26 The Lord said, “If I find fifty righteous people in the city of Sodom, I will spare the whole place for their sake.”

27 Then Abraham spoke up again: “Now that I have been so bold as to speak to the Lord, though I am nothing but dust and ashes, 28 what if the number of the righteous is five less than fifty? Will you destroy the whole city for lack of five people?”

“If I find forty-five there,” he said, “I will not destroy it.”

29 Once again he spoke to him, “What if only forty are found there?”

He said, “For the sake of forty, I will not do it.”

30 Then he said, “May the Lord not be angry, but let me speak. What if only thirty can be found there?”

He answered, “I will not do it if I find thirty there.”

31 Abraham said, “Now that I have been so bold as to speak to the Lord, what if only twenty can be found there?”

He said, “For the sake of twenty, I will not destroy it.”

32 Then he said, “May the Lord not be angry, but let me speak just once more. What if only ten can be found there?”

He answered, “For the sake of ten, I will not destroy it.”

33 When the Lord had finished speaking with Abraham, he left, and Abraham returned home.”

Genesis 18:22-33 NIV


“Far be it from you to do such a thing—to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike. Far be it from you! Will not the Judge of all the earth do right?26 The Lord said, “If I find fifty righteous people in the city of Sodom, I will spare the whole place for their sake.”—- 32 Then he said, “May the Lord not be angry, but let me speak just once more. What if only ten can be found there?” He answered, “For the sake of ten, I will not destroy it.”

We can see God’s heart in this passage. While there are righteous people left in this world, He relents from bringing about His judgment. However, there is an appointed time that He will keep His elect from having to go through the coming Great Tribulation (Revelation 6-16),

“Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.

Revelation 3:10 NIV

Should one reduce this proclamation to be an allegory or a thing of the past, “the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth” is an expression that is very specific of a future event that perfectly matches what is spoken of in Matthew 24:21,

“For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again.”

While there is time, REPENT.
