Oh How We All need the Lord

I posted the following a few weeks ago, but feel I need to update it a little and post it again and again in the hopes that it reaches those who really need to develop a saving relationship with Jesus... even if it touches one heart it will have been a marvelous thing! I am so in hopes that some of my self professed "unsaved" friends I've met on line will visit and read this post in particular....

As I was watching the evening news this evening I was really taken by the sheer magnitude of the effect nature is having throughout the world...blizzards, record cold,unprecedented rain in Arizona, record snow, lack of snow in places where snow is usually prevalent.... even earthquakes in Chicago.. Since this was originally written the Chilean quake has occurred which performed in nature something which hasnt happened since recorded time.... this quake was so powerful it actually knocked our earth off its axis somewhat and actually shortened the length of our day by some odd minutes. Now the evening commentators will never bring this up... but to my way of thinking it is not just Mother Nature who is acting out here.
El Shaddai ( God Almighty) Creator of the earth is definitely getting our attention! Most Bible scholars will attest that we have entered into what the Bible calls the Last Days... No one knows the exact day or hour that Jesus Christ will appear in the clouds and a trump will sound and the dead will rise first, then His church (Bride) will be changed in a twinkling, be caught up with Him in the air and leave this world behind.. Glory to God! Maranatha! (Come Lord, Jesus!) The Bible tells us He will come as a thief in the night. No one knows when but the Bible has left us with many clues as to His appearing.. There will be signs in the nature. Believers are told to be vigilant....watching....
ready with our oil lamps filled with oil and our wicks trimmed. Oh, man, you do not want to be caught unaware... You dont want to be left behind! For the Bible says there are many who have gone to church, done all the right things, even performed miracles for his name sake, yet on that day, the Lord will say " I never knew you!" and they will be left behind because they had not oil in their lamp.
I think about this parable of the ten virgins a lot. It appears that that oil is very important to the Lord... it constitutes the relationship one develops with the Savior... through prayer, Bible study, time spent in the secret place praying, listening to His small still voice, and confessing continually... abiding in His Word and allowing His Word to abide in us!. Apparently there are many in our churches today who think they are part of the family of God, yet if they are not completely yielded to the Master, who do not willingly and lovingly seek to spend time in His Presence "working out their salvation with fear and trembling" then they could very well be in for a huge awakening.... but by then it will be too late. For the Bible also says to those who heard the gospel and failed to heed the word, after the day of His coming to catch up his children, to those others he will give a delusional mind so that their hearts will be hardened. There are many places in the scriptures where it says to those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.. heed these words.. I tell you, the days are getting short. Evil is everywhere dear ones, we see it in our government, in our localities, in the news, and it is hard to believe but the Bible says this is not even as bad as it will get.... Listen to the news and hear how schools are closing,, teachers are being let go... unemployment is rampant... but it will get worse... Matthew 24 says'''"21For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again. 22If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened." if those days were not cut short.... we now know how the days will be shortened... as they have already started through this violent shaking... but I believe that the shaking has only just begun. Now is not the time to delay.... wake up... check these things out for yourself....
Lastly....The Bible is very clear about this. The end will come during the generation when Israel becomes a nation which was in 1947 and a generation is about 70 years. I am not a doomsday sayer.... but I am a vigilant Christian who has nothing to fear.. for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed to Him against that day! I am burdened however for those who are lost... And dear ones... it is not just enough to say I believe there is a God... I believe there was a Jesus... for even the devils believe... Seek Truth... seek the Way... seek the Life! His name is Jesus and He wants a relationship with you!!!!
Watch the signs, read and study God's Word and be alert! Maranatha! Come Lord, Jesus! If you would like to discuss this with me privately please comment and we can develop a dialogue.. God bless you!!

  2. I truly believe IIChronicles and am very repentently in prayer for God to relent and save our land.... have been praying this fervently now for years with our prayer team at church and privately in my secret place... but we never kn ow if in his perfect wisdom and timing that we are facing the end of time and the purpose of this post is mainly to inform those who may not be hearing or seeing .... my fervent prayer is that in some way they will hear and know that they are in need of a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ!!!I am as it planting my seed... praying it falls on fallow ground... thanks for your comment, though... yes we must pray...
