The wicked of this world is poised, set, and ready to pounce upon the weak, poor, and vulnerable. At any moment when they get the chance, they will show their true colors, their despise of authority, and their utter wicked intent for all the world to see. They will not care one bit for the rules and laws of the land and especially of the Lord’s ways.
We are seeing just a glimpse of what is to come. But for now, they lay in wait in the shadows, for now, they hide in the darkness, fearing if they come out into the light they may be exposed. But a time is coming when that will all change, and they will not care who sees their evil.
And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. Only He [the Holy Spirit] who now restrains it will do so until He is out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will kill with the breath of His mouth and bring to nothing by the appearance of His coming. 2 Thessalonians 2:6-8
This day is drawing very close, and the Lord will come soon to take His church, His righteous bride. The wicked will ever become more wicked and consume their hearts in their own wickedness, scheming, and conniving new ways to put them into practice.
But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 2 Timothy 3:1-4
This is the last hour. You need to be busy doing the work He has given you, that you may be made complete in His sight. To finish the work He has placed in your hands to accomplish.
Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore we know that it is the last hour. 1 John 2:18
Do not lose heart or be faint but strengthen yourself in the Lord that you may finish well. Very shortly the Lord will be coming, may it be 20 years, 10, 5, or less, only the Father knows. But it will be soon, and whatever remains to be done, know that the Lord will help you accomplish it.
For, “Yet a little while, and the coming one will come and will not delay; but my righteous one shall live by faith, and if he shrinks back, my soul has no pleasure in him.” Hebrews 10:37-38
It is the Lord God who Reigns! It is He who made the land and the sea, The Lord God Almighty who made the heavens and the earth. Whatever happens will happen according to His plan, purpose, and timing. He rules over all in magnificent splendor and no one will sway His hand or change His mind. His reward will be with the righteous, and His wrath will be upon the wicked.
Those who love and follow the Lord, will see life and live in His rest! The wicked will not, they will shrivel away like a wax figure placed before a blast furnace, and our God will repay them for all their wrongdoing.
We give thanks to the Lord for His righteous, holy, and just plan. All glory, honor, majesty, and praise be to our Lord Jesus Christ.
We give thanks to you, O God; we give thanks, for your name is near. We recount your wondrous deeds. “At the set time that I appoint I will judge with equity. When the earth totters, and all its inhabitants, it is I who keep steady its pillars. Selah
I say to the boastful, ‘Do not boast,’ and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horn; do not lift up your horn on high, or speak with haughty neck.’” For not from the east or from the west and not from the wilderness comes lifting up, but it is God who executes judgment, putting down one and lifting up another.
For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup with foaming wine, well mixed, and he pours out from it, and all the wicked of the earth shall drain it down to the dregs. But I will declare it forever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob. All the horns of the wicked I will cut off, but the horns of the righteous shall be lifted up. Psalm 75
