While the World is on Fire

Revelation 8:8-8:9

What will you be doing? How many people have asked the question, what will you be doing at the end of the world? When I was a child, in the hills of Kentucky, I always asked my self this same question every-night before I went to sleep. I remembered the preachers sermon, the Hell fire and brimstone was still in my mind. I would take my time after everyone went to sleep and look out the window at the sky above. For a little kid I thought that everything was so large and big. I looked at the sky and told myself, The world was a clear blue sky with puffy white clouds when it ended. I didn't know much about scripture then, so I didn't Know that, when the world ended it would be on fire.

Children are so innocent and trusting, I guess that the reason Jesus said that we had to become as a child to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. Is there really an end of time? Is the Bible really true, is there really a devil or a God, what about a judgment? What do you tell them? This is what I answer. "What will you be doing while the world is on fire?"

Part 1. Lets look at the Book of Revelations for a moment, some say its, the revelation of John, but its actually the revelation to John from Jesus by Gods Angel Rev1:1. Rev 8:7, The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth, and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. Now some parts of the scripture use the allegory of trees and grass to signify men, but not here, remember that. When this takes place, What will you be doing? Going to the nearest church to ask God to forgive you, running to the fire station, crying out that your house is on fire, Screaming that you cant find your Baby, or children or maby a husband or wife who were a christian, running to the fall out shelter? What will you be doing while the world is on fire? Will you be falling on your knees asking Jesus to help you or will you curse the God of Heaven, for the plague that has just hit the earth? Ill tell you. All the above, and more.

The pain the smoke the agony, screaming to find refuge a place to run and hide, searching for family and friends, a terrible time a time you wished you had avoided. God is supream, He's the everlasting to everlasting, The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, our God. There is a savior, there is a redeemer, there is a deliver. There is Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Is Hell real?, you can bet your soul, there is.

There was a man dyeing, that my family knew real well, he had not been the type of person that most people would want around them. A drunkard, a beater of women, user of every foul language, his marriage ended in divorce, his own son didn't want anything to do with him. He had been minister to many times, he had heard the word preached and still he refused the calling of the Holy ghost to repent. On his death bed, my brother-in law was speaking to him about Jesus and just before he died he said, I've had my chance, I've turned Jesus down one too many times. I can feel the heat on my feet, My legs are on fire. And just as he took his last breath he screamed, I can see Hell, and he died. What will you be doing while the world is on fire?

Revelations 8:9, And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea, and the third part of the sea became blood. 8:9 , And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea and had life, died, and a third part of the ships were destroyed. Where are you going to run, where are you going to hide? Where is there, a place of safety or a shelter from an angry God? The United States has the greatest Navy in the world, second to none, they are going to be destroyed, in a heart beat, in a flash of fire. Gone. Blood shall fill the ocean, fish and men will die, their great battle cruisers, air craft carriers, submarines, will be destroyed, blood and fire mingled with smoke, where will you be? You say, it cant happen, it a fairy tail.

Look at history, look at Psalms, 78:43, How He had wrought His signs in Egypt, and His wonders in the field of Zoan. And had turned their rivers, into blood, and their floods, that they could not drink. 78:49, He cast upon them the fierceness of His anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending them evil angels among them. Don't say that it wont happen , don't say that it cant happen, say when.

These are all part of the trumpet judgments in Revelations, this action takes place after the rapture, the church wont be here. And if you think that the anti-christ will take care of you, your right, he will. If you refuse his mark, 666 you will be killed and if you take it God will destroy you. Its your decision, if you will not harden your heart, today is the day of salvation. Make today the day you give your heart to Jesus, don't let another day slip by and let some one else ask you, What will you be doing, When the world is on fire? end of part 1.
