MATTHEW 5:6-7 “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst; for they shall be filled.”
The leading churches of the world have united in an effort to determine the status of today’s Christianity vs other religions. The result is very disturbing to project over 43 million Christians and Jews have been martyred, often by torture, since the crucifixion of Christ. Over 50 percent of those murders have occurred in the last 100 years. It is a fact, the world has never witnessed less peace than is seen right now. Huge gatherings by the thousands are being seen in many parts of the world to protest discontent in their life. This information should cause deep concern for all people regardless of religious status or nationality. Personal studies may erase some of the gloom and bring comfort and hope. I will invite your attention to a few scriptures that offer promise from God and Christ.
Proverbs 10:30 “The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall never inherit the earth.” + Proverbs 2:21-22 “For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it.” But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.” Matthew 13:30 “Let the tares and the wheat grow together until the harvest; and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, gather ye first the tares and bind them into bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into My barn.” So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from the just.” Jesus spoke these words in His parable of the wheat and the tares. The tares were left to grow with the wheat to prevent uprooting some of the wheat.
Likewise wicked people will be permitted to live with the saved until the worldly harvest. Psalms 37:9 “For evil doers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord shall inherit the earth. You can probably add a much longer list of your own.
A theory is recently being taught that some will be raptured instead of being gathered to Christ. It does exist and is becoming popular with some, but it does not appear in any Bible and it cannot be proven, consequently it can never be anything but a theory and I do not believe it. Here is what Jesus prayed to His Father God about it. John 17:15 “Father, I pray not that Thou shouldest take them out of the world: but that THOU shouldest keep them from the evil.” Jesus prayed that and I know it is His truthful opinion of the false rapture theory that has never been seen in any Bible. Never will be.
