Mark 1:15 (NKJV) and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.”
We used to see people out on the streets with signs saying “Repent, the Kingdom of God is at hand!” but our culture has successfully gotten those people labeled as religious lunatics. Most Christians shy away in embarrassment concerning the impending judgment of God. When is the last time you even THOUGHT “repent!” in the presence of an obvious unbeliever in Christ?
Tragic. The world is in a sin freefall (“as in the days of Noah” Luke 17:26) and all signs point to Jesus’ soon return… but to announce that or talk about makes you a fruitcake (just like Noah!).
Chalk one up for Satan.
Think It Over: When was the last time you seriously thought about how near (soon to come) the end of this age is? Have you ever warned any unbelievers of this reality? Why not?
