387. End Times Phobia?

endtimesRevelation 11:11-13 NKJV  Now after the three-and-a-half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them.  (12)  And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they ascended to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them.  (13)  In the same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. In the earthquake seven thousand people were killed, and the rest were afraid and gave glory to the God of heaven.

Many sincere Believers regardless of their pre, mid, or post tribulation rapture beliefs fear their future days on the Earth.  While mid or post tribulation rapture adhering Believers fear the devastation and horrid trials through war, pestilence and ruthless men as such as the world has never seen in its history, pre-tribulation rapture believing saints fear the world wide calamities leading up to their rescue, selfishly not fulfilling their dreams, or that somehow they might miss the rapture and be “left behind”.  But Revelation 11 once again shows the awesomeness of the Lord God and that we never have to fear.

Revelation 11 tells us that for 3 ½ years two witnesses prophesy, bear witness, and provide evidence of the Lord.  Once they finish, the Beast will rise from the Abyss and kill them.  But God always gets the last laugh.  For 3 ½ days lovers of evil will party and rejoice over their death until the Lord God raises them up from the dead.  Then great fear will overtake them as they yet again see the overcoming power of our Heavenly Father.

Regardless of whether you are pre, mid, post tribulation rapture or even amillennialists this kind of terror is not meant for you.  The Lord God is AMAZING and we should not fear ANY days to come nor the signs, wonders, miracles, or events that we are seeing or hearing around us today.  Jesus has the keys of Hades and of death (Revelation 1:18) and is LORD over all.  He is alive and forever on the throne.  Best of all He loves you.  Fear Not!
