In the final analysis, what one chooses for eternal destiny is going to be the first thing looked at when each of us faces Jesus Christ in His position of final authority. From Jesus Chirst's own words, belief in Him and His relationship with the believer will be the deciding factor, and not what group or clique we were in when we were young. For this believer, I am counting on Jesus Christ to be true to His WORD in the Holy Bible, for that is His promise through His Holy Spirit.

I believe that there will come a time when all righteous people will have no choice but to be united. The trials that have been promised for humanity will affect every single person on this earth. They will have no choice but to follow Satan or God. This time period is a time of sorting; a final chance.

When will people understand that no political establishment on this entire earth represents God? Who they represent is the real question. What is the role of politics in the final days? Why are not Christians thinking of this? Why do they believe that their governments represent justice and righteousness when we know in that last days that there are no such rulers. What countries are capable of implementing the prophesies?

21For then there will be(A) great tribulation,(B) such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be.

I have heard in Canada that since same-sex married was legalized, any church that refuses to perform these marriages could loose their license.

There in a noose around the neck of religion in the world that is pulling tighter as we speak. Who are enforcing these standards?

Many will die before the return of Jesus (PBUH). The reality of our individual judgment day is closer at hand, death. Many people will not get the chance to rectify their lives before death. This is why it is prudent that we come to terms with the commandments of God now. To truly understand that each prayer can be our last and that one day it will be. God have given us intelligence, the ability to discern the truth from falsehood. Too often, people relinquish this ability A true searcher of truth will find what they are looking for.

[2:62 & 5:69] Surely, those who believe, those who are Jewish, the Christians, and the converts; anyone who (1) believes in GOD, and (2) believes in the Last Day, and (3) leads a righteous life, will receive their recompense from their Lord. They have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.

[3:113-114]. They are not all the same; among the followers of the scripture, there are those who are righteous. They recite GOD's revelations through the night, and they fall prostrate.

[5:82] You will find that the worst enemies of the believers are the Jews and the idol worshipers. And you will find that the closest people in friendship to the believers are those who say, "We are Christian." This is because they have priests and monks among them, and they are not arrogant.
