DON’T BE DISCOURAGED AT THE END OF DAYS by Jeff Wingo

With all that is happening in the world it is easy to be down and discouraged, if not frightened. I don’t need to give you an unending laundry list of problems to prove my point. All of you know what is going on in the world. All of you read the news, and you are probably asking the same questions I am, especially the why question. The questions are natural, and there is nothing wrong with them. All of us are seeking answers because we are all in the same boat. Truthfully, our planet is reeling under tremendous pressures at this moment as we move forward, getting closer to the fulfillment of prophetic time.

What do I mean by prophetic time? By that I am referring to the period of time when God begins to directly intervene in the affairs of the world. It is His time to deal with the nations as He works to bring the world under total submission to His rule. For this to happen though we must go through the trials of the Great Tribulation. The good news is, all of the troubles of the world will come to an end at the Second Coming and the Millennial Reign of Christ.

Meanwhile, God is directing the course of events, of that I am confident. Looking at everything going on though, it’s almost as if He has forgotten us. It’s not that He has abandoned us to the woes of our planet as we spin around the sun. He is with us, and will be with us till the end of time. So don’t be discouraged at the End of Days because there is hope; although it is not found in the empty promises of politicians, or pie-in-the sky proclamations of the religious prophets of the world. Our hope is found in Jesus Christ, and the Bible here and now, and ultimately, at His return.

Lord I want to see!

Luke 18:35-43:  And it came to pass, that as he was come nigh unto Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the way side begging:  And hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant.  And they told him, that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by. And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me.  And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried so much the more, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me.  And Jesus stood, and commanded him to be brought unto him: and when he was come near, he asked him, Saying, What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee? And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight. And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee. And immediately he received his sight, and followed him, glorifying God: and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto God.

Sometimes we just have to cry out to God for understanding, and the Bible promises that He will hear, and provide insight, wisdom, and guidance. “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him” (James 1:5). I have yet seen the moment when I sincerely asked for wisdom and the Lord turned me down. He does freely give wisdom to those who want to listen, and He also opens the eyes of the blind so they may see the truth. But I must warn you: when you ask God for wisdom, He will provide exactly what you need, and if He deals with your heart about an issue you must give heed. That is part of receiving from God, you have to accept the whole package. If you are unwilling to act on His Word, the truth is, He won’t give it: and, you must have faith, and not be double minded.

 James 1:6-8:  But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.  For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.  A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

Faith is important, but not blind faith; that is like walking into a dark tunnel believing the end is near when in reality, the end is sealed up and dark, with no hope of escape. Contrary to what atheists and unbelievers claim, faith in the God of the Bible is not blind. Throughout the centuries God has proven Himself faithful to those who choose to hold to His Word. That is why He gave us the Bible in the first place: for it is in the ancient pages of the Bible that the people of our time, in our place in history, can clearly see how God has worked in ages past, and how He intends to work in the future.

Psalms_16-81

According to Thayer, faith is “the conviction that God exists and is the creator and ruler of all things, the provider and bestower of eternal salvation through Christ.” He goes on to state that faith is “a strong and welcome conviction or belief that Jesus is the Messiah, through whom we obtain eternal salvation in the kingdom of God.”

The Bible states that “faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). According to Albert Barnes commentary, the word substance here rendered from the Greek word hupostasis which means “confident, or confidence.” What this means is that our trust in God has a substantial quality, (it is not a heartfelt fantasy), because it is founded on the nature of God as revealed in the Bible. In other words, we have confidence in God through His Word, which develops over time as a firm trust leading to assurance; and assurance in the nature of God builds confidence that He exists and can be trusted because of the evidence found in history and the Bible.

That is why Paul rightly stated, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him” (Hebrews 11:6).

The bottom line is that our faith is a firm confidence in God: we learn to trust Him as we become more familiar with His ways as revealed in the Bible. Even when we are not faithful God remains so. Our faith or confident trust in is in the character of God. We learn that He is one who can be relied on in good times, and in bad. He holds the future of the world, and He also holds my personal individual future.

The Bible declares that God sees the end from the beginning. There is nothing man, or the Fallen Ones, can do that surprises Him. He controls all things:

Isaiah 46:9-10: Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure.

That is why we sometimes ask the why questions. We find it rather hard to believe that God allows evil, and evil things to continue, especially when the evil in this world touches us, or our loved ones. We must remember that we live in a fallen world filled with fallen people, and fallen spiritual beings. And reading the Bible we also begin to understand that God has a purpose for allowing the hard difficult things, even if we can’t understand why at the moment. Could that be why Paul said that the sufferings of this world produce in us a kind of glory for an eternal purpose?

For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory (2 Corinthians 4:17).

According to Thayer the word weight means “a weight of glory never to cease, a vast transcendent glory or blessedness.” I would rather be blessed in eternity, than be cursed, or curse the present world, wouldn’t you? When we  place our faith in the eternal God, no matter the circumstances, He will answer with His presence, power, comfort, and strength. Like many people, I have seen great suffering in this world. But when I choose to place my confidence in Christ, I have yet to see Him fail to provide exactly what I need at the moment. His truth is real, personal, and incredible.

One promise that we should all hold to is that Christ loves and cares for us individually. His Word promises that He will never leave us, nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). He is always present to comfort the broken child, correct the wayward son or daughter, and lead and guide us into the eternal glory of His presence. I can believe Him, I can trust Him, and I can learn to walk with confidence in this sinful world knowing that he will always be there: “Even to the end of the world” (Matthew 28: 20).

Please visit me on Facebook and “Like” the page. I place articles and commentary on the Alien Antichrist Facebook page. Join the discussion! Even more important, I encourage you to share these pages! The world is under such heavy deception right now, imagine what it will be like when the restraining power of the Holy Spirit is removed and the Antichrist is released to fulfill his evil work (2 Thessalonians 2:7-11) . So, share the pages, and expose the deception for what it is!


If you would like to know more about Jesus Christ, and personal salvation from the sin of this present world, then click this link to go to the page, How to Know Jesus Christ.

Without Christ there is no hope. What do atheists have to offer? They can argue reality or science all they want, but when cancer strikes, or a car wreck happens what can they offer? This world is more than the reality we see, there is a greater reality that extends far into eternity. Seek to know Jesus, find comfort in His Word, and in His presence. He is true and real, and right now He is reaching out a nail scarred hand, and He is waiting just for you.

Romans 10:13:  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.


bookcoverimagealien-antichrist1[1]If you would like to learn more about Bible prophecy and the Great Deception of the Last Days the then I recommend my book Alien Antichrist, The Terrifying Truth about UFOs and Aliens, Antichrist, and the End of Days.

The book is an in-depth look at the relationship between UFO and alien phenomena and the Antichrist Beast mentioned by the Biblical prophets such as Joel, Daniel, and the Apostles John and Paul. All of them spoke about the end of days and an invasion of our planet by the Fallen Ones. Joel called them a “great army, ” and Daniel said the Beast would lead the world to worship an “alien god.”

Paul said the strong delusion of the last days will be linked with a strange sight in the heavens that is meant to be observed–and he linked this strange sight in the heavens with the Man of Sin, the Antichrist. John revealed that the Fallen Angels will be cast to the Earth, and this will be linked with fire from the heavens–with that said, did you know that angels are called ministers of fire? Are UFOs chariots of God? Or, are the UFO Chariots we see a type of angel? What are the wheels within the wheel that Ezekiel saw, and are they actually UFOs? I address all of this in the book!

Get the book and be informed, then when the aliens suddenly appear in the heavens and invade Earth you will know the truth of what is going on and won’t fall for the Great Deception. The Lord said that His people perish for lack of knowledge: be armed, be informed!

You can get the book at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. And if you have Kindle Unlimited and Kindle Prime you can download a copy free through that program!
