Has World War 3 started yet? (CW55)

     World War 3 is at Hand

While we wait for the fall and destruction of Iran to start World War 3, let's check our own Christian faith, doctrine and knowledge of Him and His words.

Scoffers in the Last Days
2 Pet 3:3-4  knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, "Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation."
   Most Christians, having seen the recent end time signs of heresies and abominable practices easily accepted in churches and the great depravity of men, believe that they are now living in the last days and may even witness Rapture.
   Our Lord prophesied that unlearned, sinful and carnal Christians will be scoffers, who will try to distract Christians from preparing themselves to be his elect at the coming of Jesus.
   To a timeless and eternal God, a thousand years is just like the blinking of the eye. It may seem that He is slow in fulfilling His promise but actually, He is patiently waiting for us to repent and comes to His salvation before His judgment and damnation.
2 Pet 3:8-9  But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

Cleansing of His Church
1 Pet 4:17 For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God.
   Today, it looks like World War 3 may not happen or be delayed. God is also patiently waiting for sinful and worldly Christians to repent before He uses it to judge His church by removing the sinful, heretics and abominable so-called Christians. God can then prepare the cleansed church to be His bride ready for Rapture.
Rev 21:8 "But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."
Fervent Love for One Another
1 Pet 4:7-8  But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers. And above all things have fervent love for one another, for "love will cover a multitude of sins."
    In the last days when we come before God in prayer we must be
1. Be Serious for it is a matter of life and salvation or death and damnation.
   Check your faith against the Apostles Creed whether you are the wheat or the tare for many so-called Christians have believed wrongly the watered down and heretic gospel.
   Check your doctrines if they have contradicted God's attributes, Jesus' truth and the Epistles of the Apostles.
2. Be Watchful of the times and seasons, fulfillments of each prophecy, and what God expects of us.
3. Fervent love for one another
1 John 3:16-17  By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoever has this world's goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him? My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth. And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him.
