The world (not the earth; but the totally depraved, and corrupt world system), is looking for a savior. Someone who will be the wisest (in their minds) most grand person who ever lived, to fix everything up. If you look up anti-Christ, in your Bible’s concordance, and read everything about him; and if you read the O.T. book of Daniel, and the N.T. book of Revelation, you will see that such an one is definitely on his way. He, in fact, may have already come into the world, and may be here now. Or perhaps not yet. We just don’t, and can’t know for sure.
But that the world is ripe for such a man (or beast), there’s no doubt. Look at things with an objective eye. Consider the interest in the occult, in witchcraft; and, the interest in bazaar things that go against everything God demands of His people, and commands us to do. The world has never in its history, been in such an ungodly turmoil as it is today; and it’s getting worse day by day. Yes, you can look back in history, and see terrible times, bloody times, from medieval times to the present time. Genocides (Many, falsely in the name of Christ), holocausts, dictatorships, atrocities; and yet, these are nothing compared to what will transpire when the anti-Christ reigns on earth. The irony is this: The world will believe that the super political savior has come; and many will literally worship him. In the end, the anti-Christ will be absolutely crushed by the Lord Jesus Christ, and “Jesus shall reign where e’er the sun, doth his successive journeys run (Isaac Watts).”
Meanwhile (back to present) what are we to do? We are to do as Jesus tells His church to do in His Word. We are to “Go into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15)” Jesus said to His disciples, “As my Father hath sent me, so send I you (Luke 20:21.” How did the Father send Jesus, and for what purpose? Why, to “seek and to save that which was lost (Luke 19:10).” As well, we are to do all the good we can to our fellow humans, in the way of feeding the hungry; clothing the naked; healing the sick, and seeking liberty and justice for all, inasmuch as we are able; with compassion and kindness for all. You see, Jesus is the real Fixer-Upper! Let us not be of those who are looking for another!
With love in Christ for everyone, a sinner saved by grace,
