Every day there is something that happens. In every place, there are things that happen which concerns others who are living there or even further away. History books are filled with events that influenced the way of life of many. Certain events came unexpected, others were warned for.
In life we may find people who are on the lookout or people who notice what is going on, whilst others do not notice what could be coming up to them. Those who have found faith in God should take up their responsibility. They should act as watchmen and warn people for the things to come. Believers in God should know about His Plans and as such should also tell others about God’s Plan. Many do not know that God allowed man to govern the world, but that everything they do or want to do is known to God. Jehovah, God, looks at those who love Him, and expects from them that they warn people of possible dangers or of things going wrong.
If the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes the life of one of them, that man will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood.”
(Ezekiel 33:6, New International Version)
2022 started with some heavy storms in certain places, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, but also some political events that should worry us. Looking at East Europe we can see that there is a build-up of troops by Russia, where there is a leader ruling, not allowing other thoughts and wanting others to know that his nation is the greatest nation on earth. His megalomania and desire for more power could put the world in great danger. We must watch out for this.
The Old Year, full of Corona news is worn and tired, and people long for more freedom of movement and a normal social life again. But because of that great desire to have some more fun again, it is possible that their view of their own surroundings remains too limited and that they fail to notice the rising danger of the King of the North.
For that reason it is up to believers to come out and to tell the world about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, him one day coming back to earth, to judge the living and the dead. Before he shall be here on earth again, we shall have to face a horrible time. Yes, we should know and be aware of the possible tribulation coming at us.
As believers in Jesus Christ, let us be fully aware of the possible danger that is coming to the world, and let us, as lighthouse keepers, send signals out into the world so that enough people will perceive the dangerous cliffs in time.
Not only have Christians to turn away from wickedness, but they also have to show the world the hidden wickedness and make people aware of the dangers that could come over them when they do not turn away.
Those who know the Bible and love God must be aware of how in the Book of Books are recorded signs that people should be able to recognise and thus realise that those events are all part of the Signs of the End of Times. So be ready, know the Scriptures and see what may be happening or is about to happen.
