A significant comet such as iSon is meant to forewarn as a precursor of impending earthly calamity to cause repentance and prayer and to save lost souls to Jesus. Typical Americans want a fireworks celebration for their enjoyment. Many commenters mocked the comet such as claiming "the biggest disappointment of 2013" but God doesn't do things for sinners entertainment. This comet wasn't meant to be the David Letterman Show of NASA! True Christians know these are signs of coming calamities of God's judgment if people don't turn back to Him, not the end in themselves. The unsaved on earth are looking for entertainment and carnal knowledge from these kind of events that's very sad.
The first-century Roman historian Josephus, in Book VI, chapter 5 of “The Wars of the Jews,” recorded the arrival of a comet before the fall of Jerusalem in AD 70. Josephus recounts a heavenly “sign” that was ignored by those without eyes or minds to consider it at the time: "Thus were the miserable people (the Jews of Jerusalem) persuaded by these deceivers (false prophets), and such as belied God himself; while they did not attend nor give credit to the signs [of the heavens] that were so evident, and did so plainly foretell their future desolation, but, like men infatuated, without either eyes to see or minds to consider, did not regard the denunciations that God made to them." - Prophecy News WatchI'm not at all disappointed the comet's disappeared, true Christians don't put their hope or faith in desired outcomes of these things whatsoever. We got the message of the comet's unusual and historical appearance in itself. These are just signs from the heavens of God's timeline as His Prophets forewarned thousands of years ago.
God continues to extend His grace and mercy to all those who have not yet turned back to Him out of tremendous love of what Jesus did at the cross making sure all have been given an opportunity for salvation. For anyone who dies without accepting Jesus as their savior their fate is sealed forever in eternal hell. God extends time on earth as our spiritual testing ground by His loving grace for everyone whose destined to be saved prior to the final judgment. Without Jesus, all of mankind would perish like that comet into a fiery eternal hell, a liquid lake of fire!
Those who remain unsaved continue on the path they're on to hell in spite of all of these forewarnings that there will be NO EXCUSE to say they weren't given ample time and opportunity to accept Jesus as their Savior. I wouldn't be a real Christian to just sit idly awaiting people to go to hell on my spiritual watch. It's my duty to let all from my past and future know the truth and leave them to accept or reject it since God doesn't force Himself on anyone.
They claimed to be wise. But they made fools of themselves. They would rather have statues of gods than the glorious God who lives forever. Their statues of gods are made to look like people, birds, animals and reptiles. Romans 1:20-23Ever since the world was created it has been possible to see the qualities of God that are not seen. I’m talking about his eternal power and about the fact that he is God. Those things can be seen in what he has made. So people have no excuse for what they do. They knew God. But they didn’t honor him as God. They didn’t thank him. Their thinking became worthless. Their foolish hearts became dark. Those who mock comet iSon as a farce fireworks display claiming it's the "biggest disappointment in 2013" just don't get it. Their shallow interpretation of this celestial event is the biggest disappointment to God! They should be praying on their knees being grateful with all of these tremendous signs in the heavens of Jesus's second coming being near.
One thing I also want to mention in closing is that rebellious unsaved people like to always bring up the Bible versus out of context related to "not judging" others. When Christians forewarn people that all are going to hell without Jesus, this isn't our judging them out of self-righteousness, but a very basic Christian responsibility we're obligated by the Holy Spirit to share. It's our responsibility as Christians to let people know time is running out to accept Jesus, and that hell is a very real place that Jesus spoke of more than anyone in the Bible. Jesus came to save sinners and it's a Christian's duty to let people know the truth, if we didn't we wouldn't be Christians at all. Christianity isn't like a spectator's sport!
Real Christians know hell's what they were saved from in wanting to sound the alarm to save others as well. All are sinners! Following Jesus is the only means to escape from eternal damnation. Jesus is the only way, the true Messiah! Fake Christians don't have any sense of urgency nor care about anyone but their small circle of friends and family and to hell with everyone else they could care less about. Real Christans want as many to turn to God as possible knowing He doesn't want to lose a single soul to Satan.
