Ringside Seats— and the tickets are free!

2007-08-19

First it was a businessman being told he can’t do business unless he speaks Spanish— in America. Then it was teachers being told they must teach in Spanish. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, we have schools morphing into muslim madrasas and aggressive muslim cultural revolutions going on under our noses.

I can’t wait to see what happens when all those Spanish-language supremacists are forced to learn Arabic. That’ll be special.

But, alas, we may not get to see the show after all. At least not those of us who look for Jesus to return soon. Yes, it’s okay to want Him to return and get us out of here, even knowing most people will not get to go. On a smaller scale we know that sometimes we humans need to be hit with a 2x4 before we wake up, so there’s no reason to think this won’t be needed for most of the world in the near future.

What I mean is that the world has gone completely nuts. The leaders on every level and in every continent are selling their souls to the devil in exchange for absolute control over the masses. And the masses think this will somehow usher in an age of peace and harmony. Trouble is, their idea of peace and harmony is to ruthlessly smash everyone who doesn’t get with the program. Even evangelical leaders are saying this openly.

It may very well be that the coming judgments will be God’s last-ditch effort to wake up the lost, a kind of shock-treatment to save a world full of people who still hate Him. Some will be saved who wouldn’t have if they didn’t go through the judgments. So even in judgment, God shows his mercy and patience. But even God’s patience can run out, and it will.

The free tickets I mentioned are for one of two things: to stay and watch the world self-destruct, or to escape it and live eternally in heaven. Both tickets are free, but you can only have the second by request. The first is yours by default.

Will you stay or will you go?
