Good afternoon. It’s been another hectic week, as we began working overtime at work, baby goats were born at home, (Boo-ton had three again) the constitution of the United States was severely weakened and the nations slide into totalitarianism acellerated. I know that it sounds like a drastic statement, however, we know that unimaginable events will transpire in the time of the end and “we’re merely wittnessing the harbingers at this moment.” Earlier this week, I heard a mainstream commentator (someone who adheres to a particular world view and gives no heed to the prophetic side of things) question whether or not we will even have elections this fall. If one portion of the constitution can be compromised, none of it is safe. To most, it sound like crazy talk, but anyone who studies scripture knows that this status quo will not continue indefinately.
Much speculation can be offered up concerning the flow of events, however, the most important thing right now is for everyone who knows the Lord Jesus to be in fervent prayer. Continually examining ourselves, being in a place to hear what the Spirit is saying, and interceding for the priceless souls in our ambience who are not prepared for the woeful day. We cannot navigate these times in the flesh. We see through a glass darkly and while we know the basic perimeters of things to come, none of us have a complete picture of what the manifested product will look like. We cannot begin to guess what “except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved” is going to look like, however, the information that Jesus offers us lets us know that it will be a time like none other.
If there has been a single word coming to the forefront this week, it would have to be the word “ALL.” It is imperative that we are fully commited to the Lord Jesus and that are affections are 100% set on things above. A love for this world; its system, its wares, or its values, will open the door to compromise-without-remedy. Words fail to convey the sense of urgency that’s been building for months. Most of us are the product of a continuance that has been in place for as long as we can remember. Even if our lives were in turmoil from every angle, we went to sleep every night feeling relatively certain that the infrastructure would remain intact. The idea that everything familiar is being systematically disassembled is difficult to fathom; even for one who routinely studies bible prophecy. And yet we are witnessing it all around us. The events of this past week are but a tiny by-product of an agenda and conditioning that’s been going on for decades as the world is beint prepared to usher in a son of perdition.
I know of people who believe that Mr Obama is the antichrist. (we know that he fits the billing of “an” antichrist) I currently don’t believe that he is “the one” whom the world will wonder after. Such a revelation will have to come from on high and will be granted at the proper moment. Speculation of this nature can be dangerous and and misleading; causing ones discernment to be hindered. Nonetheless, a statement made by Mr. Obama earlier this week was very revealing of a heart filled with love of self and no regard for the creator of all that is. This isn’t the exact wording, but I’ll place it in parentheses as to not confuse this comment with anything else written here. He stated words to the effect of:
“Some have referred to this health care bill as Armageddon. (audience chuckles) So right after I signed it into law, I looked up; expecting meteors to fall out of ths sky and the earth to open up. Well none of that happened. The sun was shining, the birds were still singing, and….it turned out to be a really nice day.” (audience chuckes louder)
Proverbs 16:18 “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.”
Another pondering that’s been in the forefront this week is that every person will stand before God. “And I saw the dead, small and great” is all inclusive of every soul who has ever travelled through the valley of decisions. “And the books were opened” tells of a judgment that will call into account every deed, every word, every thought and every motivation. We know that the man of sin, whoever it turns out to be, will make war with the saints and prevail against them in the physical realm. We overcome that wicked one by holding fast the testimony of Jesus Christ and loving not our lives unto the death. We absolutely must have our affections upon the Lord Jesus and our heart must be abiding in the realm of the everlasting. We cannot serve two masters. Peter Lillington has a most important admonition at the top of his blog: “Those who marry the spirit of this age, will find themselves widows in the next.” I apolagize if this post sounds excessive, but it seems that very few of us (myself included) understand the full perilosity of the hour.
Well, I’ll be going for now as this weekend is filled with things that must be attended to. Thanks to all who continue to stop by. I’m minded to make the rounds to other sites tonight, although it will be late. Malachi 3:16 continues to come to mind and this is a great forum wherein we can “speak often one to another.” Encouraging each other as we see the day approaching. Tomorrow, Kimberly and I will celebrate our eighteenth wedding anniversary.
Incidentally, David Meyers talks extensively about goings on in the Obama administration, the economic metamorphosis currently underway, and the increasing toxicity of our ambience; both physically and spiritually. here’s a link to the April newsletter entitled:
Revelation 20:12 “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which are written in the books, according to their works.”
Mark 13:37 “And what I say unto you, I say unto all, Watch.”
