“The Night Cometh”

November 1st, 2011

All around us the darkness is descending. Paul tells us of a coming day when all restraints against sin and evil will be removed from the world. In that seven year period the wraps will be taken off of evil. Evil will flood over the entire world, it will corrupt and defile and contaminate in a way never imagined or contemplated in the minds of men.

Since the fall of man darkness has descended on the earth, but always in that darkness there has been the light of truth penetrating the darkened hearts of men. Darkness is one thing, but absolute darkness is quite another altogether. This coming absolute darkness will descend on the minds and souls of men, who will harden their hearts against God.

For some time now we have observed men closing their hearts and minds to the truth. We have watched as those men have been giving evidence of the absolute darkness that is overcoming them.

Our culture has become a dark culture of hatred, death, and murder.

During the 20th century we are told that 150 million men and women have been murdered by their own governments. Hitler murdered 11 million people. America has murdered 53 million babies in their mother’s wombs. World-wide there have been 1 billion babies slaughtered in the womb in the last 50 years.  The latest debate is post-birth abortion. There are an estimated 150,000 Christians martyred each year.

The world has a growing appetite to kill. TV and Video games are overflowing with brutal ways to torture and kill. Radical Islam is obsessed with a drive to kill anything or anyone that stands in its way. They have glorified killing by promising those involved a place in a Muslim heaven.

All of this killing is but a foretaste of what is to come in the tribulation period. In Ezekiel 35:6 the Lord says to those in that coming time, if you want blood I will give you blood. “Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will prepare thee unto blood, and blood shall pursue thee: since thou hast not hated blood, even blood shall pursue thee.”

The occupy Wall street movement seems to be mindless and impotent. However, it is not hard to envision what will happen if the world’s economic and monetary system were to collapse. The streets of the world would be filled with out of control rage and violence and murder.

John tells us in the book of Revelation that in the first 5-6 years of the tribulation 2/3 of the earth’s population or 4 1/3 billion people will die violently. This will occur as a result of the wrath of man, the wrath of the devil, and the wrath of God. It will be an awful time of wrath.

In Revelation 6:17, we read about that day, “For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”

Some would say, “How can a God of love send a person to hell?” That is a question born of ignorance. God is a God of love and mercy toward all who will repent. But God is also a God wrath, who will have no mercy on those who will not repent and obey Him. You may say I don’t want anything to do with that kind of a God. You will have eternity in hell to regret that statement if you turn away from His love and mercy today. Now is the time to reconsider.
