What To Do While You Wait for The Lord.

Happy Fourth of July, everyone! I pray you are enjoying good summer weather and great food with family and friends.
This post will be short and sweet, because that's how the Lord's Words often are to us, aren't they? Short and Sweet.
Before I answer the question posed, I want to encourage and bless you with these two verses from Psalm 97
You who love the Lord, hate evil;
He protects the souls of His godly ones ,
He rescues them from the hand of the wicked. v 10

The Word for rescue is nāṣal which means "to deliver, rescue, escape, snatch away"  the same definitions used for the Greek word harpazō which is to "snatch out or away"!  I believe God encoded the rapture throughout Scripture with words, gematria and types and shadows. It's a very important date for Him... the wedding of His Only Son!  Here's the next verse.

Light is sown like seed for the righteous and illuminates their path, and irrepressible joy is spread for the upright in heart who delight in His favor and protection. v 11

Think about that. Picture our Lord spreading seeds of light on the path in front of you, like holy bread crumbs, leading you in the right direction!  What amazing love our God has for us!  And as we follow Him, we gain more and more light and we are filled with irrepressible joy--that's joy that cannot be ever taken away. 
I hope those two verses bless you as much as they did me.
So, what should we all do as we wait for the Lord to come rescue us?  Not only as we wait for Him, but in general. So many believers have no idea how they can best serve the Lord. We make things so complicated don't we? We struggle to make decisions, praying about each option, wondering what to do! 
Yet the Lord plainly told us what to do while we are here on Earth.
Love God with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself. 
And Jesus replied to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself, that is, unselfishly seek the best or higher good for other.’ The whole Law and the Prophets depend on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:37-40 
It really is simple, isn't it, though not always so easy to do. I've got the first part done pretty good, but the second? Working on that. Yet, this is really all Jesus requires of us.  But, you may ask, what does He want me to do specifically? Here is my answer. If you follow these two commandments, the Lord will show you what else you are to do. When you love God and put Him first and treat others with love and kindness, you will naturally just move into your calling. That's how it happened for me, and it will happen for you too! So, while you wait expectantly for the Lord... just love Him, learn to love Him more, and love all those around you, even the difficult ones.  And when He comes, He will say to you. "Well done, good and faithful servant, enter into your rest!"

Friday Musings: These are the Times that Try Men's Souls!

Dear Esteemed and Beloved Bride of Christ,

The days grow darker, but the light of our Lord grows brighter!  This is the sense that came over me as I watched the news of the week. Those who are the devil's people are becoming more and more like their father. And those who are God's Children are becoming more and more like our Father. Light and Dark. Good and Evil. Both are being exposed for the world to see. 
Yet judgment begins in the House of God. 
For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? 1 peter 4:17
I keep hearing the terms wheat and tares in every sermon I listen to. I believe in these last minutes before the rapture, God is already separating the wheat from the tares in the harvest of His church. The wheat are His true believers, the tares are either false converts or those who believe in Jesus but who live in willful sin.  Each are becoming more obvious as many of the true believers have left churches full of tares and are meeting on their own.  However I believe this will increase and increase until there will be no doubt who are part of the Bride. Remember, light and dark exist beside each other where each grows until the light becomes so bright (ripe), it must be removed (harvested or raptured). I am no prophet, but what I'm sensing is that the world is in for BOTH disaster AND pockets of revival. I believe disaster will strike, most likely in the form of war, but alongside the devastation, God will pour out His Holy Spirit on His Bride to do signs and wonders as in the days of ACTS. People, especially the young, who have never truly heard the Gospel, will flock to churches and meetings where the true Gospel is preached, and where they will witness miracles that always accompany the Spirit-led preaching of the Gospel. This could all take place quickly. A great final move of God to get as many saved as He can and to wake up the lukewarm so they can be rescued too!   Time will tell. Pray for the Lost! Pray for your loved ones!

Roe vs. Wade: Whatever your stance on Abortion, SCOTUS made the right call. It is NOT the Supreme Court's job to make law. Our forefathers, in their great wisdom, set up our government in 3 parts with the hope that each part would keep the other parts in check. More than anything they feared a too powerful government, like the one they escaped overseas. The only job of the Supreme court is to Determine if a law or situation is constitutional or not. Period. When they enacted Roe vs. Wade, they created a law and did so against the Constitution. The legality or ill-legality of abortion should be decided by the PEOPLE, not by an unelected court. SCOTUS did us a favor by overturning RvW. They gave we the people the power we were supposed to have all along. They did NOT ban abortion nor make it illegal. They simply transferred power to each individual State. So, when I watch these horrible riots full of angry people with signs full of vulgarity and profanity, demanding that SCOTUS be dissolved, I can only assume they are either completely ignorant of the way our government works or just plain evil. I can honestly say, I've never seen such murderous rage and hatred as I have seen in clips this past week from these abortion lovers.  I truly believe most of them are so full of demons, they can't think for themselves. Like I said above, the darkness is being revealed. 

I saw a couple of other short clips that I won't put here. I found them extremely offensive and I wish I hadn't seen them. However it did prove to me that many of these protesters are demon-possessed. There was also a clip of a mob tearing up a pastor's Bible, calling him names, and tossing the remains of the Scripture in the toilet of an outhouse.

Even more alarming, is that the abortionists seem to be blaming this SCOTUS decision on Conservative Christians. Biden, himself, blamed it on Trump's picks for the Supreme Court and all over social media people are coming out against Christianity. I see this as just one more step toward the entire world hating us. But it's not like Jesus didn't warn us.

Stand strong. Be ready to preach the Gospel at all times, and remember you are protected by Almighty God!
What would we expect to see in the news if we are quickly approaching the Tribulation?
  • Wars and Rumors of Wars. Not just individual wars but Global Wars. (Rev 6:3-4)
  • Global Famine (Revelation 6:5-6)
  • Global Pandemics and diseases  (Revelation 6:8, Luke 21:11)
  • Collapse of Economies World Wide so they can usher in digital currency (Rev 13:16-17)
  • Immorality everywhere (Matthew 24:12, 37, Revelation 9:21)
  • Character of mankind and even many "Christians" degrading severely (2 Timothy 3:1-5)
  • Most Churches and denominations compromising with the world (Matthew 24:11, 2 Peter 2:1-2)
  • God and the Bible Blasphemed and insulted (Revelation 13:6, 16:9)
  • Christian persecution increasing (Matthew 24:9-10, Luke 21:12))
  • Signs in the heavens. Increase in UFO activity (Luke 21:25-26)
  • Earthquakes, volcanoes, heatwaves, storms on the rise (Matthew 24:7, Romans 8:22)
  • A push for technology that allows one to purchase goods with a wave of a hand. (Revelation 13:16-17)
  • Suppression of truth and any voice that goes against the Global narrative
  • Increasing violence surrounding Israel and the temple mount (Ezekiel 38, Psalm 83, Matthew 24:15 , Daniel 9:27
  • New World Order Global Government Rising (Daniel 7:23-24)
Check out the Articles listed below for proof of the above.
These are just some of the Scriptures I could list for each item, each event that we see forming today in our world.  I list them to show you once again that we are living in the very last minutes before the Tribulation. Whether you believe in a rapture or not, the Tribulation is about to start, so either you should be preparing or you should be looking up and rejoicing!
Some great articles explaining what is going on in America and why
Good News!

Worth noting:  CERN is a particle accelerator used to do experiments in high energy physics, but it has become a Satanic stronghold and one of Satan's tools. They hope to discover not only the origin of the universe but also to open doors to different dimensions. Why? Because that would allow an influx of demonic creatures into our dimension the likes of which this world has never seen or experienced. Some years ago a group of scientists did an odd dance of worship before the image of the Indian goddess Shiva is called the "Destroyer" and also the "Supreme lord who creates, protects and transforms the universe."  There's much more to be said about this collider, but they are starting it back up this week, and that's not good news for us.

Why Do the Nations Rage?

 In my daily Bible Readings, I often come across a Scripture(s) that fits perfectly a current situation in my life. It could be an answer to a question I have asked the Lord. It could be something I need to hear concerning my behavior or attitude that displeases the Lord.  😧  It could be encouragement and love! (My favs!) But sometimes it's just the Lord showing he that He knows what's going on in the world, nothing is catching Him by surprise, and He's got this! This is why I encourage all of you to spend time each day in the Bible. Don't know what to read? Start at Genesis and read until the end of Revelation. Or read one or two chapters in the Old Testament and 1 or 2 chapters in the New each day. However the Lord leads you. "But I've already read through the Bible" you might say. My answer is.. the Scriptures are alive. I guarantee you will find new revelations each time you read. Anyway, part of my reading on Friday was Psalm 2 and I sensed the Lord wanted me to share it with you.
Why are the nations in an uproar in turmoil against God,
And why do the people devise a vain and hopeless plot?
The kings of the earth take their stand;
And the rulers take counsel together
Against the Lord and His Anointed saying,
“Let us break apart their divine bands of restraint
And cast away their cords of control from us.”
Are nations in an uproar today? Are they all fighting against God? I would say, yes, more now than ever before in History. We have an organization called the World Economic Forum (closely tied to the UN) whose main spokesman, Yuval Noah Harari says that God is dead. He says that "we don't need the God of the Bible. Jesus is dead. We are just waiting to get rid of the body." He says "humans are hackable animals" and most of us are useless. He said that man can create much better things than God can, and that we can become gods ourselves.  As alarming as this man's words are, we know most governments kicked God out long ago. However this recent global government (which will take over the world) not only wants to get rid of God, but to replace Him. (Antichrist actually means Instead of Christ) They want to "break apart divine bands of restraint" and remove all of God's control over them.
To us reading and learning about this trend, it seems alarming, but here in Psalm 2, God laughs at them. Laughs!    
He who sits enthroned in the heavens laughs at their rebellion
The Sovereign Lord scoffs at them and in supreme contempt He mocks them. Then He will speak to them in His profound anger
And terrify them with His displeasure, saying,
“Yet as for Me, I have anointed and firmly installed My King
Upon Zion, My holy mountain.” 
He not only laughs at them. He mocks them! Then He will terrify them and remind them that He has put a King in Zion (and it ain't them) 
Who is that King? And what will He do?

I will declare the decree of the Lord:
He said to Me, ‘You are My Son;
This day I have begotten You.
‘Ask of Me, and I will assuredly give You the nations as Your inheritance, And the ends of the earth as Your possession.
‘You shall break them with a rod of iron;
You shall shatter them in pieces like earthenware.’

He is the Son of God, Jesus, our Messiah. And it is He who will rule the world and break these rebellious nations with a rod of iron!
Then God gives these nations some wise advice
Now therefore, O kings, act wisely;
Be instructed and take warning, O leaders judges, rulers of the earth.
Worship the Lord and serve Him with reverence with awe-inspired fear and submissive wonder; Rejoice with trembling.
Kiss, pay respect to the Son, so that He does not become angry, and you perish in the way,
For His wrath may soon be kindled and set aflame.
Kiss the Son! I love it.

And last but not least

How blessed, fortunate, prosperous, and favored by God are all those who take refuge in Him! 

That's you and me if we are true followers of Jesus!  See that? Blessed, Fortunate, prosperous and favored.

So, I ask you, why are you afraid of these silly nations, silly leaders, silly rulers and judges who threaten to rule the world and get rid of God? ( The UN, WHO, EU, WEF, and our own governments).  If God is laughing at them, maybe we should too. He not only laughs at them, he scoffs and mocks them!  So, don't be afraid. We are children of the Most High and He's in charge, in control, and He knows everything they are doing and He's already got a plan to destroy them. In the meantime, we are safe in His Mighty Arms! 
We wait expectantly for the Lord;
He is our help and our shield.
For in Him our heart rejoices,
Because we trust, lean on, rely on, and are confident in His holy name. Let Your steadfast lovingkindness, O Lord, be upon us,
In proportion as we have hoped in You. 
Psalm 33:21-22

Friday Musings: God is Never Late!

Dear Most Dearly Loved Saints of the Most High,
It was the worst of times, it was the best of times. What a time to be alive! Instead of looking around at all the evil and disasters, think about it, YOU are the generation who will meet the Lord Jesus in the clouds! For all eternity, people will come up and ask you what it was like to be in this last generation and to hear that trumpet and fly through the sky!  It WILL happen! God is not a liar. He always fulfills His Word!  
In fact, we see His Word fulfilled every week, His prophetic Word concerning things that will happen as we approach the end. Which is the point of these posts. To prove that God's Word is True and that we are nearing the Tribulation. And in doing so, to encourage you to be ready, live for Him, and try and save as many as you can! 
So, we have monkeypox declared a pandemic by the WHO. Next steps, I'm sure are lockdowns, masks, and vaccines. We've been through this before. Besides, Biden, himself declared there will be a 2nd pandemic. We also have other diseases rising, Polio, bird flu, and more Covid variants. Then, of course we have thousands of people dropping dead from the vaccine. But nothing to see here. We need to give this poison to infants and toddlers now!  Do I need to tell you to stay away from the vaccine at all costs and NEVER give it to your kids? Please. 
  Looked up in the sky lately? Do you really know what they are spraying on all of us?  Experienced any heat waves lately? Seen reports of thousands of livestock dead from the heat? This is ALL DESIGNED. They are purposely trying to destroy the planet, the trees, grass, and livestock. They create these heat waves and then they blame it on Global Warming so that you will be willing to give up more of your rights and grant them more power over you. It's all a game. Why would they want to destroy the planet they live on too? That's a good question. I encourage you to check out this website. This man seems to be the only one trying to warn people about what is going on. Check out his various articles where he provides proof of what is happening.  

The latest news on the coming famine is the lack of Diesel fuel AND diesel oil needed for the supply trucks to run. Now, they are saying they only have weeks of Diesel oil, which means in just a month or two, the shelves in your stores will be bare.  See articles below. All this while many financial experts and even the UN are warning of a coming Global hunger crises and a complete economic collapse here in the US. 
Speaking of collapses, Israel's government has dissolved and new elections are to be held this fall. Yet they have also become Europe's new gas supplier. What's interesting about that is the impetus for the Gog-Magog war is to "take a spoil" and oil and gas are worth more than gold these days. While this is happening, they are being attacked on all fronts and preparing for a major war with Iran. Keep your eyes on Israel, Still the apple of God's eye!  As things heat up there, we go up here! Go will turn His attention back to His Chosen people after we are gone. 

The Biggest news on the war front is the blockade of all railways to Kaliningrad from Russia

 Russia recognized the borders of the Republic of Lithuania in exchange for guarantees of uninterrupted transit of Russian citizens and Russian cargo from Kaliningrad and to Kaliningrad. Thanks to this recognition, Lithuania was able to join the EU and NATO. Russia needs to be able to move goods and people across Lithuania to the small portion of Russia Territory, Kaliningrad which is a strategic port.

This past week, Lithuania has blocked Russia from using its railways to ship coal, metals, electronics and other sanctioned goods to the military exclave of Kaliningrad.
Here is an hour long video about how much more advanced the Russian Missile Systems are than ours and how this could be the spark that could start WW3. We are steps from another world war.
Oddly, there is some good news too! Some victories that I want to share with you.
There are some saying the rapture will be delayed and we will see more victories like those above. While I want to go home more than anything, any extra time we have could result in more people getting saved and coming with us. That's a good thing! 
However, this is my take on a "delay". The Lord is never late. The date and time of the rapture was set long before the world was ever made. Our God is a God of strict appointments. Remember, He is outside of time and knows when every event will happen. He prophesied through Daniel the exact day that Jesus would ride into Jerusalem on a donkey!  God is amazingly accurate. So, whenever the rapture is set to occur, it will not be delayed. It's not like God is up there saying "Oh, I think I'll postpone the rapture a bit for now. I didn't foresee that there were a few people here and there that I still want to get saved."  So when people say there will be a delay or the Lord will tarry, I just shake my head. 
Another thing I know is that once the labor pains have begun, they do not stop. Rather, they get stronger and more frequent up until the birth of the baby. The Birth pangs have started!  There can be no argument about that. So, regardless of any small victories we see, the pains will continue to come as we head toward Tribulation. YET, we could be wrong about the date. I could be wrong when I say I believe it's this year. So, we praise Jesus for these victories and we keep following Him and doing His will and use what time we have left for His glory! 

Revival coming? It's going to have to be a big one since a new Gallup poll reveals belief in God among US adults is at an all time low. But of course God can do anything!
Just after my last Friday's blog post about the Four Horsemen, I saw this article The hoofbeats of the 4 Horsemen ar getting louder as we near the time of the end 
Let me leave you with some encouragement. There's a very rare planetary alignment happening today. If you didn't read yesterday's post, T.W. Tramm explains the prophetic implications of the alignment.
