Christ the King

It is sad to witness the lack of faith in people who claim to be Christians today.
The Bible declares that Christ has received all power on Earth and in Heaven and
is a King whose Kingdom will never end. But do we treat Him like a King?

We give more honor, respect and obedience to the local policeman, our employers,
the county judge or our parents than we do to the King of Kings. Does that not
prove our lack of faith in the Word of God?

Do we tremble at Christīs word? Do we obey His commandments? Do we even read
what He said in the Bible? Do we remember it? Do we believe it? Jesus gave plenty of
warnings about Judgment Day and the Lake of Fire, but does anyone seem worried?

This lack of faith is probably storing up wrath for the world as we speak. Heaven
seems to be very quiet - too quiet. We seek God, but He seems far from us. No one
seems to be connected to Heaven like the prophets, Jesus or the Apostles were. What
can all this mean?

We forecast the weather by observing the record of past events. If we observe the
history of the world we see a long slide into sin followed by horrible poverty, wars,
plagues and famines. Most wars are caused by desperation in a time of growing
poverty. Poverty is caused by a society that is morally corrupt and filled with vice.
Moral corruption and vice are caused by generations of parents raising children more
sinful than themselves. Our lack of faith in the righteous Word of God and our love for
moral corruption and vice seems to indicate there will be darker, colder days to come.

Mankind goes through a moral cycle like the seasons of the calendar. We are going
into the winter months, I believe, and we may not have another springtime before
Judgment Day.

A prophet, Jonah, saved Ninevah from sliding into the dark seasons - he turned back
the clock for a while. Is anyone going to save us from sliding into the dark seasons?
I donīt see anyone preaching the loud warning that needs to be heard. The churches
are preaching what their members want to hear - nice soft words. The watchmen are
sleeping and there is no shortage of anger in Heaven over our lack of faith.

The King is angry. He is coming. Are you ready to face Him? Will you appear to Him
like a big, fat cockroach in His house or as a meek and humble servant? Will He squash
you like a bug or invite you as a guest to His wedding feast?

Behold, the name of the LORD cometh from far, burning with his
        anger, and the burden thereof is heavy: his lips are full of
        indignation, and his tongue as a devouring fire: 
And his breath, as an overflowing stream, shall reach to the
        midst of the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of
        vanity: and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people,
        causing them to err. 
Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a holy solemnity is
        kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goeth with a pipe to
        come into the mountain of the LORD, to the mighty One of
 And the LORD shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and
        shall shew the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation
        of his anger, and with the flame of a devouring fire, with
        scattering, and tempest, and hailstones. (Isaiah 30:27-30)
