Why the “End Times” Matter to This Mama

I have been pondering for months now the direction I want to take this blog, considering I started out with a worldview I have, in some ways, shifted away from over time.

As I have been in prayer and meditation on what, exactly, I’d like to address on this blog and how God can use my passion for writing to minister to the saints in these truly chaotic times, however, I’ve realized that while I may have outwardly changed in many ways, the spark I had within me to start this blog four years ago has only continued to kindle into a raging flame.

You see, I first sat down to write the End Times Mama blog because I felt there was a sore need for women, and particularly mothers, to pray and encourage one another in what I perceived to be days in which we were watching Bible prophecy unfold before our eyes.

And while I no longer dwell on expectations that the Antichrist will soon rise up, ironically, over time we seem to be inching closer and closer to that Day.

Here’s the thing, though: we’re always inching closer and closer to that day, even if we’re still years, decades, or even centuries away.

The End Times have been spoken of since the beginning of time. 

The Times of Refreshing

I was reading Acts the other day when a certain passage struck me: when Peter is preaching in the temple shortly after the Apostles have received the Holy Spirit, he warns the Jews about the “end times,” explaining Who they have just had killed on the Cross, and what He came to do. But it struck me the way he phrased it:

Acts 3:17-22 KJV And now, brethren, I wot that through ignorance ye did it, as did also your rulers. But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled. Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.

The End Times Complete the Plan

The End Times aren’t just some scary time in which the whole world will go to pot. That’s not to say the world won’t go to pot; I don’t mean to gloss over the horrific events that the Holy Word of God prophecies of, that’s a topic for another day.

The End Times are simply so much more than that. They are the Great Day in which the Lord will finally bring sorely-needed Justice to this world. In which the prophecy God spoke in the Garden will be fulfilled. In which Jesus will sit on the throne and Judge the whole world.

Injustice is Rife in This World

There is no doubt this world is scary, particularly for mothers. It seems like almost every day we hear about more child trafficking, pedophilia, mass murder of Christians, cold-hearted SJWs calling for the viewpoints of those they disagree with to be eliminated.

Just a quick perusal of the mainstream media displays a clear-cut agenda that trickles down from the “globalists”, the hand full of vastly wealthy members of nepharious global governance organizations that routinely undermine American sovereignty and are dedicated to reducing the population of the globe.

You can call me a crackpot conspiracy theorist for this, by the way, but the members of groups like the United Nations and the Council on Foreign Relations have been pretty open about their radical-left views, and I can address this more at length in the future.

My point is this: it is only natural to be completely afraid in the period of history we are in, and sometimes, for some people, adding the possibility that these could be The literal End just make it scarier. 

Fear ≠ Faith

Thus, End Times Mama was born, and thus, I remain dedicated to answering this call to preach faith in God’s promises during these very frightening times.

Because if we are truly in the End Times we have every reason to rejoice. God’s perfect Justice is only getting closer! The Gospel does not only give us hope in these scary times, these scary times may very well be fulfilling the entire point of the Gospel: that one day, God will judge the whole earth, and Jesus is the Ark that we need to survive.

If we have Jesus, we have nothing to fear.  Our Lord said it best when He said:

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (John 16:33 KJV)

If we believe in the End Times because we believe God’s word, then we should rejoice that they are coming. No matter how hard things get, all God wants from us is to trust His promise. As Abraham trusted he would have a child through whom the whole world would be blessed despite his wife’s infertility, we must trust that through these dark times, His Light will shine brighter than it ever has before, and all things will be restored unto Him.

So, fellow mamas, let’s take heart and encourage one another in the End Times!

  1. I have been following you for a while now. Thank you for all of your words of encouragement. Us grandmothers are in a very dangerous place these days because we see things in our children’s and grand children’s lives, but we are not allowed to say anything. The retribution is too great. I speak for many friends who are not even allowed to see their grandchildren anymore. We know the whole thing is just the enemy trying to get at our grandchildren. I pray; that’s my only job. We are definitely in the end times.
    Keep up the good work Isa.

    My husband and I are about to start our family and, now more than ever, I think about how I’m going to train my future children to be strong against the lies of this world while finding joy in Christ and His blessings. Your blog has been an inspiration to me before and I look forward to seeing more from you!
