The Wise and Foolish

Friday, June 3, 2022

Jesus Christ is the greatest Preacher, Teacher and most trustworthy Theologian to ever walk this earth, for He was and is the Word, and taught truth for He is the Son of Almighty God, in fact the Creator of all things, for “without Him nothing was made that was made” (John 1:3); and He is “the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6), and no one comes to the Father except through Him. Yet, about ninety-five percent of Western professing Christians have been deceived by theologians of men who teach exactly opposite from Christ for the gathering of His elect.

Have you considered the bold pride of that grievous behavior? Christ lovingly taught His followers, the disciples, and the would-be church, that He gathers His elect “Immediately after the tribulation” (Matt. 24:29–31). He brought clarity to that in His parable of the five wise and five foolish virgins. The wise prepared but the foolish did not. In this, Christ clearly taught that the coming tribulation is an event for which His elect must be prepared. But theologians of men who are not happy with that truth, have devised a way to disown Christ’s Words as not applying to post-Calvary saints. And they have done this to their own loss and deceit of millions of their followers. Think about it: who, or what, is the mere human who dares oppose the Words of the Son of God, and lead millions of other people to follow their teachings rather than the end-time teachings of Christ? Well, Jesus’ parable of the five wise and five foolish virgins sums it all up!

But with whom do you stand? Whom do you believe, fallible man or the Son of God? It’s a highly relevant and applicable question, because the times of the end are upon us. And those with spiritually discerning eyes to see and ears to hear, we recognize that the fourth beast-kingdom of Dan. 2:40 and Dan. 7:7 is arising to take its place on the world stage. That fourth beast-kingdom will ascend the end-time Antichrist to his seat of power and global authority for the final seven years of this present age. No one has a date for when those final seven years begin, but God in His love gave us the sign of its beginning, which is when the two witnesses of Rev. 11:3 begin their 1,260 days ministry. Thus, the Spirit reminds us repeatedly in Scripture to “Watch!” with prayerful expectation of that calamitous time—a time of seven years of tribulation. And we will either be a people prepared like the five wise virgins or unprepared like the five foolish virgins of Matt. 25:1–13. The choice to believe “the truth” of the Son of God, or the foolish theologically erroneous teachings of mere man, belongs very individually to each and every person.

People will be living and working together in close relationships, some wise, but others foolish, clarified by Jesus’ teaching that at the appointed time to flee to God’s safety and provision for the last 1,260 days of great tribulation that, “in that night there will be two men in one bed; the one will be taken and the other will be left. Two women will be grinding together; the one will be taken and the other left. Two men will be in the field; the one will be taken and the other left. And they answered and said to Him, ‘Where, Lord?’ So He said to them, ‘Wherever the body is, there the eagles will be gathered together’” (Luke 17:34–37). God, metaphorically, carried His people to His safety “on wings of eagles”; Ex. 19:4; Isa. 40:31 and will do so once again at the beginning of the great tribulation, Rev. 12:6 and Rev. 12:14. And the phrase to “be taken” does not mean a supernatural catching away in the rapture as many false teachers and theologians say, but means to flee under one’s own power, as did Noah and his family to the Ark, and as did Lot and his wife and daughters to the mountains. See Strong’s #G3880, meaning “to take with one’s self, to join to one’s self”. Likewise, when God told ancient Israel to flee Egypt, they believed and obeyed and were consequently saved from the ravages of totalitarian Egyptian overlords. And there is a day coming in the not-so-distant-future when similar circumstances will once again be imminent, and only the wise with believing and discerning hearts will heed the call.

These issues and more are extremely important and relevant to these end-times, times in which many in the organized church are unable to discern because so many pastors equivocate on the Scriptures and are themselves unable to discern these unfolding end-time events. But it doesn’t need to be that way for you and your loved ones if you are willing to abandon the traditions of men and wholly believe by faith the written testimony of Christ. Do not fear abandoning those traditions of the false pre-trib rapture which keeps millions of professing Christians in the dark, but boldly depart the deception of Dispensational Theology and cling to God’s unfailing Word.

You will not regret it, because right now elite globalist overlords are plotting their enslavement of humanity to their iron-fisted tyrannical rule. You need to be knowledgeable of those who plot terror against humanity, especially people like Klaus Schwab and his protégé Yuval Noah Harari of the World Economic Forum. These men have more power and influence than we could even imagine, and their global initiatives are taking front and center stage as the unbelieving world bows to their demands as they implement their Great Reset, a reset wherein they intend to strip humanity of any and all free will. Hear it for yourself in this short three-minute video. And do not be deceived by any preacher’s pre-trib rapture promises—we will all be right here on earth, witnessing these ungodly people, and watching their satanic powers seize control of this world.

This is why Jesus Christ said that, “as it was in the days of Noah” and “as it was also in the days of Lot…Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed” (Luke 17:26; 28). But the truth is that, it’s immeasurably sad the number of professing Christians who have been deceived by illegitimate and false end-time preachers and teachers to disregard Christ’s teachings that He gathers His elect “Immediately after the tribulation” (Matt. 24:29–31). Because false teachers have done this, they have stripped millions of the biblically mandated command to prepare to endure to the end, Matt. 24:13. Do not be counted among them. Be wise in the testimony of Christ Jesus and prepare to endure to the end as did the wise virgins of Matt. 25:1–13.

Therefore, the Holy Spirit warned us, “An astonishing and horrible things has been committed in the land: the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests [pastors] rule by their own power; and My people love to have it so. But what will you do in the end?” (Jer. 5:30–31). “Now all these things happened to them [ancient Israel] as examples, and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the end of the ages have come” (1 Cor. 10:11). And, “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches” (Rev. 3:22). Let’s choose to be wise and not foolish.

True Christians should be the first to recognize that elite globalists not only influence but dictate to world governments what will be. It’s been occurring in earnest now for over two years and the intensity of onslaught against people grows daily. But people, including those in the church, who follow the mandates of governments, are not Spirit-led, nor do they discern the signs of the times which is extremely unfortunate. It’s foolishness. Governments are creating mandates that lead to the mark of the beast. Let’s arise and be wise in Christ lest the end-times deceive even the elect.
