MORNINGTIME 2132
 
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come , EXCEPT THERE COME A FALLING AWAY FIRST, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 2 Thessalonians 2:3. Now the big questions, WHO will be doing the "falling away"? And from what? People will be falling away from the Lord. Falling away from their "love" for the Lord. Their "love" is only a love of convenience, a love for something, until something better comes along. They'll take whoever looks best to them, at the moment. It's really just worldly love towards a god of their own making, nothing to stick with when the pressures of life start to bare down. As for "who" will fall away from the Lord, think about it, it CAN'T be Christians, they Love Christ and are willing to die if He so chooses. To them, OBEDIENCE IS FIRST, and consequences don't matter. That leaves, the non-Christians, the un-believers, the  "religious", THE GOATS. When the pressures of Life start pressing down, those with no Anchor anchored to that Solid Rock, (Christ), will float away. The "floating away" part is easy, at first. ALMOST everything looks close to what it was a little while ago. Change is slow and easy, hardly noticeable, IF anyone really cares to notice. Eventually, a big change IS noticed, with one of two results. More apathy, (oh well, it wasn't very important anyway), or sudden fear that something's badly wrong. MAYBE, there's still time to turn back, maybe not. Goats will try to look "religious", Sheep will run from "worldly". Only the Lord knows who truly is, and isn't, Saved. But looking at a person's Fruit can show a lot. Stay anchored tight to The Rock, examine yourself, be sure of your standing with the Lord. Even ask other Believers how you look, you may be surprised at their answers. For that  matter, ask your un-believing friends what they see. Set your Anchor, Be Obedient to the Holy Spirit, and, Be Blessed.
