THE TERRIFIED AND THE IGNORANT

Under every post on war or trouble or trials or tribulations, beneath every post on End-Times Prophecy, you will find them; comments from the terrified and the ignorant Christianites and Christianettes. They almost always include a verse or two that includes the phrase “Fear not…” The commentator, his or her fear showing through the misspelled and misplaced words, informs us that, in times like these, we should not be afraid. Follow up questions and answers quickly reveal a fearful soul who is, almost always, totally ignorant of the issue being discussed.

In their fear, these Babylonian Christianites and etts, assume that anyone posting such horrifying pictures, with such terrible headlines, must share their own fear, and most certainly are in need of spiritual comfort. Their assumption is that, either the poster of such information is posting it because they are very afraid or, worse, because they are a big Meany who has set out to terrify timid souls.

Ignorance, it seems, is their only refuge. They assume that if no one talks about it and if they do not know about it, it cannot hurt them…

That, is a lie from Hell!

Scripture tells us what to watch for. Jesus commands us to watch. If we did not know what to watch for, we would be guilty of willful ignorance. If we did not watch, we would be living in rebellion, sin, and in direct disobedience to the direct command of Jesus Christ. If we did not share the danger that we did see, we would be held guilty for the blood of everyone who died because we did not warn them.

We do not share because we are afraid.

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; instead, perfect love drives out fear, because fear involves punishment. So the one who fears has not reached perfection in love.

We do not share in order to frighten the timid; we share because:

  • Jesus commands us to watch. You cannot watch without seeing.
  • God commands us to sound the alarm.
  • God will hold us guilty if we do not.
  • We love the Brethren enough to share.
  • Others need to prepare for the destruction that is upon us.

When others share, I learn. When I share, others learn. Together, we are continually watching, thinking, and sharing. This is how the Elect of God are preparing.

Ezekiel 33:1 33 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 “Son of man, speak to the sons of your people and say to them, ‘If I bring a sword upon a land, and the people of the land take one man from among them and make him their watchman, 3 and he sees the sword coming upon the land and blows on the trumpet and warns the people, 4 then he who hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, and a sword comes and takes him away, his blood will be on his own head. 5 He heard the sound of the trumpet but did not take warning; his blood will be on himself. But had he taken warning, he would have delivered his life. 6 But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet and the people are not warned, and a sword comes and takes a person from them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require from the watchman’s hand.’

If my posts frighten you… Good! Not posting terrifies me!
