Mark 1:14-15 
King James Version

14 Now after that John was put in prison, 
Jesus came into Galilee, 
preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,
15 And saying, 
The time is fulfilled, 
and the kingdom of God is at hand: 
repent ye, 
and believe the gospel.

The LORD Jesus was very clear about what we must do.


Matthew 4:17 
King James Version
17 From that time 
Jesus began to preach, 
and to say
for the kingdom of heaven 
is at hand.

Previously, John the Baptist, the Lord's cousin, was tasked to prepare the way for the LORD, as prophesied:

Matthew 3:1-3 
King James Version
1 In those days came John the Baptist, 
preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,
2 And saying
Repent ye: 
for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
3 For this is he that was spoken of 
by the prophet Esaias, saying, 
The voice of one crying in the wilderness, 
Prepare ye the way of the Lord, 
make his paths straight.

John spoke of how the "generation of vipers" would meet their fate:

Matthew 3:7-10  
King James Version
7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees 
and Sadducees come to his baptism, 
he said unto them
O generation of vipers, 
who hath warned you to flee 
from the wrath to come?
8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:
9 And think not to say within yourselves, 
We have Abraham to our father: 
for I say unto you, 
that God is able of these stones 
to raise up children unto Abraham.
10 And now also the axe is laid 
unto the root of the trees: 
therefore every tree 
which bringeth not forth good fruit 
is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

And beautifully, John spoke of Jesus, in the most reverent way:

Matthew 3:11 
King James Version
11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. 
but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, 
whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: 
he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, 
and with fire:

From which Jesus will separate the "wheat", from the "chaff":

Matthew 3:12 
King James Version
12 Whose fan is in his hand, 
and he will throughly purge his floor, 
and gather his wheat into the garner; 
but he will burn up the chaff 
with unquenchable fire.

Jesus came into this world, for a very clear purpose:

Luke 5:32 
King James Version
32 I came not to call the righteous, 
but sinners to repentance.

He spoke of how heaven rejoices at one sinner who repents:

Luke 15:7 
King James Version
7 I say unto you, 
that likewise joy shall be in heaven 
over one sinner that repenteth, 
more than over ninety and nine just persons, 
which need no repentance.

That's what Jesus came here for, to save us from our sins, to show us the way to repentance, to teach us to love God, the FATHER and CREATOR, and to love each other.

He was here to fulfill God's Laws:

Matthew 5:17 
King James Version
17 Think not that I am come 
to destroy the law, or the prophets: 
I am not come to destroy, 
but to fulfil.

What was the Law, but this:

Matthew 5:18-20 
King James Version
18 For verily I say unto you, 
Till heaven and earth pass, 
one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass 
from the law, till all be fulfilled.
19 Whosoever therefore shall break 
one of these least commandments, 
and shall teach men so, 
he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: 
but whosoever shall do and teach them, 
the same shall be called great 
in the kingdom of heaven.
20 For I say unto you, 
That except your righteousness shall exceed 
the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, 
ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

The Laws were the 10 Commandments.

We were taught all that when we were kids, but obviously many of us have forgotten, or didn't really understand what God was asking of us.

But it is not too late.

We have today, right this moment, to get right with the LORD.

He left us the HOLY SPIRIT to teach us ALL things, to remember ALL His Words.

We were left with REAL, divine help.

Jesus is merely reminding us of the desire of the FATHER:

Ezekiel 18:32 
King James Version
32 For I have no pleasure 
in the death of him that dieth, 
saith the Lord God: 
wherefore turn yourselves, 
and live ye.

It has always been about repentance, for all of us -- the proud, the ignorant, the uncaring, the cruel, the corrupted.

As Bible prophecy student, it is my duty to turn to Jesus' words, to sift through the Bible, and share with you the relevant verses for our difficult times. 

Only the WORD of GOD -- JESUS -- can give us real comfort, and instruction, now.

I am grateful that Jesus had looked kindly upon my soul, and saw fit to save it, for the world as we know it, is no more.

The diabolical schemes have taken on steam, but there is no reason to be afraid. 

But you must drop everything you're doing now, that is not of GOD. 

In your heart, you know what those things are.

We must not test Jesus, even as He loves us all.

Let Him tell you in His own words:

Revelation 3:19 
King James Version
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: 
be zealous therefore, and repent.

There is no going around it.

We must all turn back to the LORD, and repent, abandoning our evil ways.

If our hearts are true, and we wish change upon ourselves, and the world, we must seek JESUS with all our heart, and let The SPIRIT of GOD -- the Holy Spirit -- trigger awakening upon our souls.

We are so loved He gave up His life for us thousands of years ago.

But this time, He will wage war:

Revelation 19:11-16 
King James Version
11 And I saw heaven opened, 
and behold a white horse; 
and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, 
and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, 
and on his head were many crowns; 
and he had a name written, 
that no man knew, 
but he himself.
13 And he was clothed 
with a vesture dipped in blood: 
and his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven 
followed him upon white horses, 
clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, 
that with it he should smite the nations: 
and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: 
and he treadeth the winepress 
of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh 
a name written, 
King Of Kings, 
And Lord Of Lords.

Will you be there behind Him, and with Him?

Other important verses we must read are Psalm 91, and John 3, to help secure our salvation in these difficult times.
