For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear.
2 Timothy 4:2-4 

I read this and think back to a "sermon" called The End is Near at Crossing Church. I remember Eric talking about when the end comes and only 144,000 Christians left on the planet being called home to God. It got me thinking. After all is said and done and these Mega churches take over the world, will there really only be 144,000 people left that know the Real Jesus?  The thought of this makes me so sad, even out of context.

Correction:  Eric did not say that 144,000 Christians would be left on the planet being called home to God. He said "During the 21 judgements...a group of church people. 144,000 of them. These are radical church people dedicated to spreading the message of God's rescue around the rest of the planet..." The impression I had at the time was they were the only Christian's left after all the plagues and judgements.

PS Jehovah's witnesses were NOT mentioned.


  1. He said that Jehovah's Witnesses believe that.

    You remember wrong.

  2. The answer to this is dependent on whether you believe the Rapture will occur before the Tribulation, in the midddle or after. Most evangelical Christians believe in pre-Trib. The Crossing is evangelical even though they say they don't do church. Bottom line is that no one knows the day time or hour, pre-Trib, Mid-Trib or Post-Trib. Not even Eric.
