Brace Yourself!

Have you seen the news? Heard the stories? It’s not just happening in some unknown region of the world. It’s everywhere! The wind, the waves, the wars, the earthquakes, the be-headings. There is so much death and destruction that life feels surreal at times.

It’s as if there is no peaceful place left on the planet. Nowhere to hide. Nowhere to run. Hate everywhere. How can we go on? How do we survive these hard times?  For me, the answer is simple – Jesus.

When the world around me spins out of control, spiraling into chaos. I look inside myself. Not for some philosophical teaching, or self-help talk. Not to still my mind and calm my chakra. I take refuge and find strength in the one who is an ever present help in trouble.  My Jesus.

I surrender everything to Him. When I close my eyes, when I’m working, driving, eating. It doesn’t matter. He is always with me. He is my rock!! All the Sunday school classes and church services, hymns and Bible studies…His word fills my mind, body and soul. And I know without a doubt…There is Power in the Blood! And Victory in Jesus!

I believe we are so close to His return. So close, that even though I keep looking up and watching, I find myself bracing for the call! How fast we will be changed!  How glorious that moment will be when we are called up to the clouds to meet our Jesus in the air.

I’m excited, scared, anxious, fearful…you name it!  But, I’m also certain, at peace, strong, ready, willing and waiting.

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Isaiah 26:3

In a world of turmoil do you have perfect peace? Do you have an unshakable foundation? Who do you serve this day…right this second?

There are only two answers:     Christ -or- Antichrist.

I serve Christ!! And I hope and pray that you do as well. What kind of eternity will you brace yourself for?

Not Enough Time

I’ve been watching a lot of end time prophecy shows lately. Everyone seems to have their own take on God‘s timeline of events. Some I agree with…others I don’t. Either way, the one thing I think we all can believe in is that Jesus is our savior.

I am not ashamed to say that Jesus is my savior…my messiah…my advocate to our Heavenly Father. I am not afraid to say Jesus is the ONLY way to Heaven! There is no other way!

There is not enough time left to sugarcoat things. There is not enough time left to agree to disagree. Jesus is the only way! If you don’t have Jesus…then all you have are things that will fade away.

This was weighing heavily on me this morning. I pray that if this message touches you that you will get to know Jesus on a personal level. He is all you need. He will teach you right from wrong. Surrender your life to Him and be filled with the Holy Spirit.

Time is passing so quickly! Throw down your idols and false Gods. They will lead you to death. Jesus will lead you to life everlasting.

Search for Him today!

Signs and Wonders

Jesus is so close!!!  His return is imminent!

A meteor hitting Russia!  An asteroid passing Earth today!  The Pope stepping down!  Israel compassed with armies!!!

Signs and Wonders my friends.   And just a few of them at that…Keep looking up!!!

 

 

Holy Bible.

Get ready….Coming soon…. Psalm 83

 Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.

For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.

They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.

They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:

The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;

Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;

Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.

Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison:

Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth.

Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:

Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.

O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.

As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;

So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.

Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O Lord.

Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:

That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth.

God Bless!

Somewhere in Time

I once heard someone compare God’s view of time to what we see during an ariel view of the Macy’s Day Parade.  They explained that as participants in time, that would be us presently…we know that time exists and that it is in motion.  Moving forward. But, we can’t see the beginning or the end.

 

However, from God’s perspective he can see everything.  He can see all the twists and turns and stops from beginning to end .  More importantly, he can see all the participants and what they are doing.

 

Time has always fascinated me!  I’ve always loved shows about time travel.  Good grief!  Throw in a  love story and I’m hooked!  I’m just saying….have you seen Somewhere In Time?  Great movie.

 

God created time!  He just didn’t throw it out there and say…”let there be time.”  He cares more than that.  He made it eternal.  He divided it into day and night, winter, spring, summer and fall.   He molded it into perfection.

 

And as I see prophecy coming to fulfillment before my very eyes, everyday on the news, I know that we are living in a perilous time.  In end times.  I’ve heard people say…”Oh they said that when my grandparents were little” or “they are always fighting in the middle east.”    Be still and remember this…

 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to usward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentence.

2 Peter 3:9

Isn’t that beautiful?!  The Lord is not slack!!  Time is eternal.  That is true.  Just not our time on earth.  That will end.  He is longsuffering.  Why?  So that when our time on earth is over…we do not die in sin…as sinners.  He is waiting for everyone to repent of their sin and find life eternal and spend forever in the presence of God.

 

One way or another our time on earth will end.  When it does, we will be judged, rewarded and shown to our eternal home.  Are you ready?
