Former Of Mice & Men frontman Austin Carlile took to Twitter this week to discuss the current events going on in the world.

From coronavirus to Black Lives Matter, Carlile shared, in various tweets, why the current state of the world isn’t surprising to Jesus and that Jesus will be “coming back soon.”

Over the years, Carlile has used his Twitter platform to update his fans on various topics including his health struggles. Last month, Carlile revealed to fans as to why his last record with Of Mice & Men wasn’t that heavy. In various tweets, he shared that his ongoing health struggles and addiction problems impacted his last Of Mice & Men album greatly.

Now, Carlile is using his Twitter account to talk about the current state of the world. The vocalist told his 630,000 followers that “none of these current events are surprising” to Jesus and that Jesus will be “coming back soon.” Carlile has admitted in the past that he has lost Twitter followers whenever he talks about religion. However, this seemingly hasn’t stopped him from speaking out about his beliefs this week.

“..Don’t panic or give in to your fears, FOR THE BREAKING APART OF THE WORLD’S SYSTEMS IS DESTINED TO HAPPEN. But it won’t be the end yet; it will still be unfolding. Nations will then go to war against each other & kingdom against kingdom…”

“…There will be terrible EARTHQUAKES, seismic events of epic proportion, HORRIBLE EPIDEMICS, & FAMINES in place after place. This is how the first contractions and birth pains of the new age will begin! -Matthew 24:4-8”

Carlile expands further on his thoughts in a separate thread. Within the thread, he expresses that he supports Black Lives Matter and thinks racism and police brutality are wrong.

“From #Politics constantly dividing us& the #media lying to us. To #COVIDー19 keeping us socially distanced more than we already were… Quickly escalating to #blacklifematters (which they do) because of #racism (which is a sin) Which led to #peacefulprotests against injust…”

“… #PoliceBrutality (which is wrong) then escalating into #riots & #looting (many of which were started by paid agitators) or simply fed-up, angry, & most importantly, HURTING humans. Humans (all of which) were made in the IMAGE OF GOD, & who all suffer the effects of this…”

“Can be saved! Period. That’s what will bring change. He came 2,000 years ago to do just that. Jesus came to save ALL HURTING people! #AllLivesMatter won’t happen until #BlackLivesMatter & that won’t happen until the world sees, accepts & WALKS in TRUE love. Which is only found…”

“In JESUS. Who IS the definition of love. ‘God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him won’t perish but will have eternal life. God didn’t send his Son into the world to JUDGE THE WORLD, but that the world might be SAVED through him.’”

“Whatever ‘Jesus’ you’ve been shown by hateful Christians, or condemning churches, or the ‘we want your money’ television preacher that waters down the TRUTH of ‘We have ALL SINNED & fallen short of the glory of God. Saved by grace ALONE. So that NO MAN can boast..’ is WRONG and..”

Carlile also apologizes to individuals who have felt injustice because of their mental illnesses, addictions, skin color, sexual orientation and more.

“… On their behalf I want to apologize if you were mistreated or judged for having addiction, an abortion, an affair, depression, or a mental illness. I want to apologize for them if you’ve ever heard ‘you’re not welcome here for being #LGBTQ,’ or BECAUSE OF YOUR SKIN COLOR…”

“…. They were mistaken. I pray you forgive them too. That’s not Jesus. Yes, sin is sin & there is right & wrong. I will NEVER falter on that. But the JESUS THAT DIED FOR YOU FLIPPED TABLES IN A CHURCH! HE YELLED AT THEM & DROVE THEM OUT because they made His “Fathers house…”

“… Just as He will accept you. No matter what condition, addiction, afflictions, culture, color, or race. It doesn’t matter. The life of JESUS matters to you, because YOUR life matters to Him. Come as you are now, because HE IS coming back soon. None of these current events are.”
