If you are a Christian then you're compelled to believe and accept the Bible’s path to Heaven. “Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. The only way to the Father is through me.” (John 14:6) A very suspicious conference took place on the 8th day of February in Abu Dhabi on the Arabian Peninsula, the birthplace of Islam. Attending the conference were leaders from various worldwide religious groups, including Catholic, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, and Buddhist. The purpose of the conference is to organize a Fraternity of Brotherhood among the different faiths. The two leading dignitaries are Pope Francis head of the Catholic Church and Sheik Ashamed el-Tayeb, the grand imam of Egypt’s Al-Azhar, the 1,000-year-old seat of Sunni Islam. The two faiths mix like oil and water. The God of the Bible and the god of the Koran are not the same. The Muslim faith does not recognize Jesus as the Son of God and savior of the world. Pope Frances addressed the conference saying, “he is pleased with this opportunity which was offered by the Lord to write a new page in the history of relations among religions and confirm that all are brothers despite our differences.” The Grand Imam, Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb arrived at the signing ceremony with Pope Francis, hand-in-hand in a symbol of interfaith brotherhood. The “Unholy Alliance” has significant implication for the “latter days”!
Before Jesus returns to Earth the second time there must come first, a “great falling away.” “Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first.”(2 Thes:1-3) Paul the Apostle warned of a future time that would look a lot like the Unholy Alliance mentioned above. “But the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some in the church will turn away from Christ and become eager followers of teachers with devil-inspired ideas. These teachers will tell lies with straight faces and do it so often that their consciences won’t even bother them.”(1 Tim.4:1-2) Paul further urged believers to confirm and endorse these truths to others. “And so I solemnly urge you before God and before Christ Jesus—who will someday judge the living and the dead when he appears to set up his Kingdom to preach the Word of God urgently at all times, whenever you get the chance, in season and out, when it is convenient and when it is not. Correct and rebuke your people when they need it, encourage them to do right, and all the time be feeding them patiently with God’s Word. For there is going to come a time when people won’t listen to the truth but will go around looking for teachers who will tell them just what they want to hear. They won’t listen to what the Bible says but will blithely follow their own misguided ideas.”(2 Tim. 4: 1-4)
As we move closer to the end of this age it's important to discuss the implications of the times we live in with friends and family. Many Christians are fearful of things they know nothing about and refuse to study and learn Bible prophecy. If you are a Christian saved by grace your fear is unfounded. You are part of the family of God and saved from the tribulation the Earth will experience in the “latter day.” To learn about the second coming of Jesus Christ should be your first priority and the second priority should be to share what you know with the people you love the most. Your Bible is the source of all truth and has the answers to questions regarding the end of the age. We are a blessed generation that could see Jesus return. “Beam me up commander” is a thumbnail of the Bible truth that will answer many end time questions and take you to Bible passages you didn't know existed, and it's free!
