God and the Last Days

“During those days, people will seek death but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them.” (Revelation 9:6, NIV)

What is propelling a man to run from God in these Last Days? The idea of a man fleeing from God has always intrigued and confused me. I know this question does not confound God because He knows all the answers to everything on this Earth. The Lord God Almighty has given us the wisdom to search and seek answers to all questions of life. Having knowledge and the capacity to pursue your life’s journey for yourself and understand the life designed for you can be daunting if you don’t pray for wisdom. 

However, we will know all the answers in Heaven with the Father. One thought that has come to me from Almighty God is that our spiritual leaders or pastors are not teaching their congregations the Word of God as they should. They are more concerned with keeping membership than teaching the “End Times” prophecy that all congregations are yearning to be familiar with in these “Last Days on Earth.”

Ignorance of the forthcoming tribulation events can nullify the last chance for countless individuals to enter the Kingdom of God, leaving them stranded on Earth. Repentance is vital to teach the congregations besides teaching the Word. People can come to salvation without repentance, and then folks pretend to love others, but they have a heart-hard bent against Father God. Believe me, Father, God knows your heart and when you are lying.

“The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9, NIV)

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 2:14, NIV)

I must credit messianic rabbis and several pastors who are not concerned about membership numbers but about saving souls; they are teaching congregates to be ready for the great “gathering up” of the Saints. Pastors face a stricter judgment, as scripture states, because men of the cloth lead a flock to preach and teach the entire Word of God, encompassing all books of the Bible, not just the parts they find comfortable. (James 3:1)

Here are a few Scriptures that seek answers to the question of humankind running from God:

Jonah ran away from God when he decided to jump onboard a boat miles away from his assignment. Father God told Jonah to go to Nineveh and preach against the city because its wickedness had come up to God (John 1:1, 10, NIV).

King Saul ran away from God in the Spirit—when he burned an offering to the Lord at Mikmash. King Saul sinned by burning an offering to God and letting Satan crouch in his heart, not asking God what he should do before he marched out to war. This blatant act of disobedience led to Saul’s fits of schizophrenia, as his kingship was “torn” from him by Jehovah. He developed an aggressive rage of discontent that caused him to chase David all over the Kingdom (1 Samuel 13:1-15, TLV).

Prophet Elijah ran after Jezebel and announced she would kill him for killing her prophets. (1 Kings 18:46-19:9, TLV).

However, the ultimate runner was Adam after he and Eve had eaten from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Adam made his sin worse by acknowledging that he was naked and hid from God with Eve (Genesis 3, TLV).
