End-Time Separation

Particularly prevalent in Biblical end-time prophecy is the strong sense of separation.  Even before The Rapture of true-Christians away from the earth, and before the rise of the anti-Christ with his Great Tribulation, fundamental differences between peoples and beliefs are tearing nations apart.  It seems, as one poet has said, that “the center cannot hold.”  And  there is a fundamental disconnect between those who understand the end of time and those who choose not to.
 
 Those who choose not to see the current collapse of time and secure reality, simply believe that time and earth are solid, dependable never-changing phenomena.  And, in spite of evidence presented by end-time events––i.e. increasing hurricanes and earthquakes, deadly flash floods, galloping epidemics, disappearing beneficial animal species, multiplying dangerous animal species, financial upheavals, wars and rumors of wars, etc.––many choose to believe that the basic fundamentals of their lives and times will remain in tact.

 The Apostle Paul, inspired by The Holy Spirit to half of The New Testament, says in  2 Thessalonians 2: 3 – “Let no man deceive you by any means; for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away . . . .”  In its explanatory notes, the Dake Reference Bible explains that falling away to be apostasy––or the separation between true and false Christianity and true and false Christians.  And, in his profound one chapter New Testament book, the Apostle Jude (half-brother of The Lord Jesus) defines false Christians as those who separate themselves from the basic tenets of Christ. 

 In the world of false Christianity, anything goes––glaring sins against the laws of God and of nature, are not only acceptable, but exalted; the demonic worlds of paganism and the occult are mixed with dead theology; blatant hatred for godly order to achieve political victory are deemed not only necessary but holy; the blame for poverty is placed solely on the shoulders of the poor; and The Bible’s commandments about love and grace are misapplied, mistranslated or simply ignored. 

 Today, millions of innocent and ignorant people float and flail between true and false Christianity.  It is time for them to become knowledgeable.  Studying wholesale Christian Bibles is a start.  Supplementing that with wholesale Christian books is also helpful.  Good Bible correspondence courses give greater depth.  Of course, witnessing by wearing wholesale Christian t-shirts, tells others about the search for truth. But the greatest of these are true love and earnest prayer!
