The Abusive Tool of Fear-Mongering.
Another characteristic of fear mongering believers is that they believe that natural disasters are God’s doing and are warnings or punishment for the sin of sinning people. Their sin consciousnesses has blurred their God consciousnesses to where they see God as the big bad wolf waiting to pounce on somebody for sinning.
Natural disasters have happened at different times throughout history. Theses events have been used by money hungry fear-mongers to write books of impending doom, passed of as the gospel by using out-of-context scripture verses to validate the acceptance and sale of their wares. It is not that natural disasters are increasing or going out of control, but the news coverage is.
Take the seventies book by Hal Lindsey that was treated almost as the Bible itself called “The Late Planet earth”. I bought it, read it and believed it. In retrospect, most all that was taught in the book turned out to be incorrect. His attempt to map Biblical Events onto the headline news of the day were woefully incorrect. Yet, it seems that believers never learn from the myriad of books that have followed and has been accepted as truth, even though they have been incorrect in their predictions.
Hal Lindesy promoted the trend of interpreting Biblical Prophecy based on today's headlines. Now, any time someone stumps their toe in the Middle East or a natural disaster or a astrological event takes place, a new book comes out that proclaims that it is relevant to the end times and the Second Coming of Christ.
Jesus will come in His timing. That timing will not be because of some money grubbing saint writes a sensational prophecy book to profit from. Be very wise and cautious about sensational end-time books drawing from today's headlines.
The infectious insanity of end time prophecies that has never happened has been the cause of mass suicides, cults of oppression, isolation not to mention all the thousands of people that sold everything they own, because they believe these insane end time fear-mongers, who have profit financially and gained more power by manipulation and control, by preaching end time gloom and doom. Every religion has their very own fear mongering profits of doom, so far, none of these insane fear mongers have been right about anything regarding the return of Christ. The only thing they have proven is how wrong and out of touch spiritually they really are, and how easy it is to stampede their herds of people that follow them with fear, which has always been the hottest selling aid for their books...FEAR-MONGERING, GUILT and CONDEMNATION.
Thus the only truth that the fear-mongers share and have revealed, is that the nature of all end-time patterns, is to repeat the same insane belief over and over again in the hopes that they will be right this time, and the more people believe their insanity of fear, the more instability their is in and among and between saint ans sinner alike.
IF YOU DESIRE TO STOP THE MADNESS, SIMPLY STOP BUYING THEIR BOOKS AND STOP LISTENING TO ALL THEIR FEAR MONGERING and they will dissolve like last year's snow, and start demonstrating the LOVE of CHRIST IN YOU.
Do not FEAR, the Blood Moons will pass and you will still be the LOVED child of God in the Community of the Redeemed to show forth His LOVE to and for the Community of Humanity.
