2 Peter 3:3-4
3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
We all (or maybe some of us) heard that the world was going to end on and on 11/11/11 . This however isn\’t the first time such false alarms have gone off. There have been various cults groups in the past, who have deceived and killed many people with this same \’end of the world\’ false alarm—won\’t get into that now.
The question is why? Why the false alarms? Who is behind these false alarms? And are there going to be more false alarms?
Yes, there are going to be more; the scoffers we read about in the scripture are the children of the devil, the tares amongst the wheat, who being carnal (not understanding the things of God) have been sent out \”to cry wolf\”.
The devil knows that once the great commission is over, judgement will follow. He knows that this world will only come to an end after the gospel has been preached to every creature. He knows and that\’s why he will do everything to hinder the spreading of the gospel. Any person who has heard of these false alarms, is probably not going to take the gospel of Christ seriously- that\’s the whole idea. That\’s Satan\’s plan.
The next time you hear a false alarm don\’t panic, let it serve as an \”energy booster\”. Take it as another opportunity for God to show you how foolish the wisdom of the world is; and most of all, focus on your God-given purpose.
