AND MANY SHALL BE OFFENDED

AND MANY SHALL BE OFFENDED

AND MANY SHALL BE OFFENDED


The Bible describes the last days as being much more difficult, and because of this, many Christians or believers will grow weary and give up through transgressions.
Many Christians will be displeased due to economic hardship and possible events in the last days, as the word "offends" here means "to be displeased."

Matthew 24:10
[10]And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

I've seen and heard of many believers abandoning their faith to return to the world, and I've heard of pastors now betraying and denying the Lord as a result of persecutions, financial difficulties, and the many evils that are rising up. Jesus stated that those who will stand will be saved. Then it follows that this Christian journey will not be easy in these final days.

These are the beginning of sorrows, according to Jesus, and are a sign of the end time. Nations have given up on God, closing churches or turning churches into factories because they now believe God does not exist or religion wastes their time.

Matthew 11:1-6
[1]And it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end of commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and to preach in their cities.
[2]Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples,
[3]And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another?
[4]Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: 
[5]The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. 
[6]And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.


Because no one came to visit him, John the Baptizer or Evangelist became very offended; he was very depressed that Jesus did not come and visit him. He was expecting Jesus come perform miracles to deliver him out of the hands of Herod. John was the one who baptized Jesus and prophesied that Jesus is the son of God, besides he saw an evidence when they all heard a voice as the Holy Spirit came upon Jesus as dove saying "this is my beloved son in whom I am pleased". Upon all these miracles and evidence John saw, he doubted and asked "Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another?".
Some people wonder, "If God exists, why are our problems getting worse?". All these people might be people who have seen the power of God, people who have experienced the glory of God but because of the hardship they are displeased with God and are fallen. May God have mercy on us this end time.

John 16:1-4
[1]These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. 
[2]They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. 
[3]And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me. 
[4]But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.


Sons and daughters of God, our Almighty Father, please hold fast to our faith, for many will go astray, many will fall, and many's love will grow cold, but ask the Lord to help you stand at all times.
It won't be long before we see our SAVIOUR.
Don't turn your back on Him, and don't stager; problems and storms will come your way, but focus on Jesus and you will be saved.

All of these things will provide evidence that Jesus, our Lord, is on his way. Let the bride be for the groom, and let us not lose our salvation, for it is the passport to our new home.

By and by, Jesus, the King of Glory, will appear.
There will be no more sorrows or weeping; continue to do good for Christ because He is coming soon. He will come to meet you if you are worthy.

God bless you for maintaining your faith. If you have fallen or backslidden, you can text or call +233554648108 to have Christ restored to your life. Amen
