Good morning.  The broadcasts contained in the following links cover a vast array of topics as they apply to the unfolding end-time senario. The first is a three hours long marathon in which Steve Quayle outlines the various venues of prophetic fulfilment. In the second one, Bob Auxier discusses the prophetic significance of the storms that recently ravaged the east coast, the need to reach the lost during and immediately following times of unthinkable catastrophe, (because such events open up many opportunities) and the coming persecution in the west; the framework for which has already been established.

Hagmann & Hagmann Report with Steve Quayle (July 10, 2012)

TruNews: Rick Wiles and Pastor Bob Auxier (July 11, 2012)

There is so much transpiring at such an alarming rate that trying to grasp even a small portion is a daunting task. This morning, two things have been on my heart. First, we must let go of every weight, every sin, and surrender every possible distraction. We must be in close to the Lord Jesus and love not our lives in this world. Second, we must be in fervent prayer for those in our ambience who know not the Lord Jesus and those who profess to know him but are not living for him.  In the above broadcast, Steve makes the following statement: “Repentance is a gift; it’s not a mental exercise.” (or words to that effect.) Just as God can sustain us in the most inhospitable of conditions, he can grant repentance to the most hardened of hearts.

Another observation that Steve mentions is a condition that he once termed “normalcy bias.” We have heard ominous reports and end times senarios for years. Yet every time a given report was over, we go outside, observe the status quo proceeding as it has for as long as we can remember, and we quickly brush aside the cogitations of that which is coming to pass. Until it effects us directly, we tend to place such things as being “over there” (as in tribulation in a foreign land)  “down the road” (as in after our allotment of days is completed) or “we’re not going to be here” (as in pre-tribulation rapture) For most of us, the thought of being alive on planet earth when the worlds most horrific season unfolds is unthinkable.

We cannot change bible prophecy or timings. We can, however, trust in the Lord Jesus who has promised to be with us always. We can, and must, set our affections on things above. We must love not ourlives in this world and we “must” maintain our testimony of Jesus until the end. We must give all diligence to make our calling and election sure. I must be going for now. The following passages are both familiar and demanding of our consideration.

I Thessalonians 5:3 “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.”
 
II Peter 3:3-4 “Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days, scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”
 
Isaiah 55:6 “Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near.”

During the Trunews broadcast, Rick makes the following observation: “when sudden destruction hits, you are either covered with the blood of Jesus or you are not.” The time to get our proverbial ducks in a row is now; before the continuance gives way to that which has been prophesied. 

Blessings always in Jesus name.
