What follows is a living testimony of our Living God working within our lives and allowing those who have ears to listen and who have eyes to see, that they will see and hear all He is telling us as He is preparing to return to a wayward fallen world sooner rather than later.
“Anyone who has an ear should listen to what the Spirit says to the churches.” Revelation 3:22.
“Make the heart of this people dull, and their ears heavy, and blind their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed.” Isaiah 6:10 ESV.
“But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear.” Matthew 13:16.
This all evolved from reading a blog article written by a friend and sister in Christ Jesus. I thank her for the inspiration and love to share her insight and faith with any of us who will listen. Now with all humility and a contrite heart I offer anything I can through my inspiration to help any of you, I ask this in His Holy name of Christ Jesus. Amen.
Yes my friend, no doubt these are the unprecedented times spoken of in the Holy Scriptures. If we consider just the fact that prior to the 1900’s or 20th century the entire human race lived in a low tech agricultural based system to exist or sustain it.
Today we live in the most unprecedented age of high technology and mechanization where mankind has been to the moon and split the atom, a time that has catapulted humanity for better or worse into a world where what would appear to ancient peoples as miracles or even witchcraft if they could now see the things that we can do each day that are common place, like communicate around the planet or transplant a human heart and even know that viruses exist, is evidence of the fact that we are now living in the absolute most unprecedented time ever in human existence. But now we humans take so much for granted and many become prideful or arrogant thinking themselves their own self-serving gods and because of all these extraordinary gifts of enlightenment they work against self and men in that yet they see so much more to desire, such as worldly wealth and power, they become blinded by the light of the “shock and awe” of so much temptation that draws the attention of the eyes, but not the heart; in fact these things delude and drain the heart of a desire to know and love our Creator by so many that submit to them.
Human innocent unborn life has been cheapened to be nothing more than tissue to flush away or dissect and use for profit; indeed all life is treated like some cheap commodity or just another disposable item that can be easily replaced. Perhaps we now have too much distraction from the basic truths that have always been and always will be. But instead many have become wayward children looking to make up their own rules as they go, as they use the convenience of all this technology to live like robots or automatons moving freely through a day to day almost zombie like material secular existence, continually trying to get more of the same or possess things, not the Spirit of God! Thus, “the great apostasy that was foretold in scriptures and by many theologians is upon us” as the churches have been emptying out over the last few decades and many are more content pleasing self, than seeking to please God thereby giving thanks in so doing for all He has bestowed upon His creation which is all based upon eternal divine love. So, can anyone honestly say or deny that all I’ve laid out here doesn’t fit to a “T” what these Holy Scriptures say about the approaching End Time.
“And if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short. Matthew 24:22 ESV
Isn’t there a ramping up of secularism and the march toward New World Order which will be more about totalitarian control by men and not about God and His majesty and rightful position above all men? But would indeed open the door to the antichrist to rule the earth!
“And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:14 ESV
Are we not living in a time like NO OTHER ever; where the entire planet has seen and can access at their fingertips the Holy Scriptures and sees the living testimony every day via the global media age even if they have no interest in Jesus at all, they bear witness to the proclamation of His being the Lord, Savior and Redeemer of mankind. My sister in Christ is right, “unprecedented” is the word to sharpen our focus upon, especially now when along with all of the moral decay or hatred in the world being shoved in our faces every day! All the while anyone can see and hear that the simple foundational truth of Jesus Christ being God Almighty is as plain as day in a most “unprecedented” rebellious world, now more than it ever was! There is no denying it or denying Him for anyone alive this moment; but still whole nations of people do and many that once built churches to honor and adore their Lord God are being emptied out and used for decadent pleasure purposes in Europe, or the actual physical property is being sold for the profit so some developer can build some condos or perform other such profit making endeavors. We see a world now that has sold out for, “the bottom-line” or “the almighty dollar,” rather than forsake all things for Him and follow Him to everlasting life and peace.
“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first…” 2 Thessalonians 2:3 (KJV).
“Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.” Revelation 16:15 (KJV).
“Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, on the one hand I myself with my mind am serving the law of God, but on the other, with my flesh the law of sin.” Romans 7:25 (KJV)
“The scripture couldn’t be more plain, if you want to walk with Christ you must not defile your garments. It is sin that defiles them. We must work out our salvation by depending not on our own works, but on Christ’s completed work on the cross. We do this by coming boldly before the throne of grace as often as we sin to obtain mercy.” oca
11“But when the king came in to look over the dinner guests, he saw a man there who was not dressed in wedding clothes, 12and he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without wedding clothes?’ And the man was speechless. 13“Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, and throw him into the outer darkness; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ 14“For many are called, but few are chosen.” Matthew 22:11-13 (KJV)
3“So remember what you have received and heard; and keep it, and repent. Therefore if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come to you. 4‘But you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their garments; and they will walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. 5‘He who overcomes will thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not erase his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels. 6‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” Revelation 3:3-6 (KJV)
7“And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write:
He who is holy, who is true, who has the key of David, who opens and no one will shut, and who shuts and no one opens, says this:
8‘I know your deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My word, and have not denied My name. 9‘Behold, I will cause those of the synagogue of Satan, who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie—I will make them come and bow down at your feet, and make them know that I have loved you. 10‘Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. 11‘I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, so that no one will take your crown. 12‘He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write on him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God, and My new name. 13‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” Revelation 3: 7-13
Message to Laodicea
14“To the angel of the church in Laodicea write:
The Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God, says this:
15“I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. 16‘So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth. 17‘Because you say, “I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing,” and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked, 18 I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may become rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see. 19‘Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; therefore be zealous and repent. 20‘Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me. 21‘He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. 22‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” Revelation 3:15-22
“Understanding of salvation as an ongoing process of spiritual growth, would say that one can indeed jeopardize one’s salvation, but that it is not realistic to say that one has “lost” something that one has yet to experience or possess in its fullness. We continually endure spiritual warfare, struggling against temptation and sin and evil and the delightful thought of doing our own will, even if it conflicts with the will of our Creator. That is why it is of great comfort to know that, if Our Lord commands us to “forgive seventy times seven,” it is only because He is willing to forgive us at least that many times, provided that we, like the prodigal son, come to our senses, return to our Father, ask Him to accept us back into loving communion with Him, and humbly open ourselves to begin our journey to the salvation which finds its fulfillment in His Kingdom once again” oca
“Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” 2 Thessalonians 2:1- 4
“Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.” Jude 1:21-23 (KJV)
Oh yes, we are in a most unprecedented time in history, and it seems imperative that we should prepare our garments and be ready on a moment’s notice in order to be saved, He is coming and like a thief in the night! God bless all of you who are aware and let’s pray for those who are not. Amen.
