When there is a world crisis, many will say that these are the ending days. Did you know people have been saying that for about 2,000 years now? Ever since the first coming of Jesus.. since He rose from the dead..
According to scientists, it is estimated that the bubonic plague has killed over 200 million people.. Remember the Spanish Flu? According to Wikipedia ~ from January 1918 to December 1920 ~ 500 million people were infected.. That was about a quarter of the worlds population at the time. It is known as the deadliest pandemic of all time. Well guys, we are still here.
You may hear people repeating that the world must get worse and worse.. so that Jesus will come. How does that make anything better? Many of us have experienced someone trying to evangelize.. in a spirit that brings fear and anxiety.. to accept the Lord. Especially when our world is turned upside down. Beloveds, please know that someone who loves the Lord will also truly love others.. God’s Word says that the fruit of the Spirit is love.. and joy, peace, goodness, patience, faithfulness, gentleness, kindness and self- control.
Doctrine or theology that doesn’t produce the fruit of the spirit ~ Would you trust that? God says throughout the whole bible.. to not fear.. He is hope.
I speak peace and love right now, in the Name of Jesus. You are so very loved. Oh how Jesus loves us all. I felt deeply led to write this blog, extremely prompted by Holy Spirit.. There are so many people hurting.. Now is always the greatest time ever.. to minister God’s love. Tons of people have become interested in Jesus and want to know more about these times that we are in.
Let’s desire to honor God more than anything. May we be convicted and enlightened. Let us not claim to be a Christian and then point to darkness. I speak against any culture of death and bad news, bashing others. We are called to be in unity with our family in the faith and with all. Will fighting to be right glorify God? Is there a focus that seems more on self-righteousness, rather than the things that God truly cares about? Be set on His truth.. His light.. Do not get stuck on the marks of the beast.. Set your heart on the marks of the Lord.
Let not our hearts be troubled in darkness.. Do let our hearts be content in His light.
ALL of God’s Word is God-breathed.. and useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness ~ 2 Timothy 3:16.. We must accept that there will be earthquakes, famines, wars, diseases.. And also the antichrist, false prophets and false messiahs. I’m sure you have heard many of the warnings for years now. Have you heard about the goodness and blessings? We must really open up our Bibles and be filled with Holy Spirit. Read Isaiah, Thessalonians, Hosea and so much more ~ So much goodness and blessings of end times.
I believe we need to be okay searching.. and not knowing it all. Look what happened to Adam and Eve. Eve wanted wisdom so much that they ate from the forbidden tree. History was changed forever.. Then Jesus! What did Jesus always preach in His earthly ministry? “Repent, for the Kingdom of God is near.”
In the Book of Revelations.. Jesus says.. “To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the Paradise of God”
Think of the cross as the tree of life..
Have a repentant heart.. seeking heaven. Always choose the tree of life ~ Jesus.
Part of the inheritance we have with the cross.. is revelation.. Jesus truly wants to share life with us.. He has secrets that He wants us to seek out..
We must not stop searching for His heart.. Proverbs 25 teaches us that it is God’s glory to conceal a matter.. That to search out a matter is glory.. lt is a heavenly treasure hunt.. The treasure is always Him.
We are to obey being ready. I always think of the story of Mary and Martha. I become convicted because I can be like Martha.. busy.. We should be a people like Mary.. where we just spend time at the feet of Jesus.. and truly enjoy being together in spirit..
We are encouraged to share the gospel with the world and all who we do life with. The great commission commands us to make disciples of all the nations. We must be about our Father’s business.. Please know, royal heirs, that it doesn’t have to look a certain way. Remember that God is looking at our heart.. our faith.. Bless others in what we do in everyday life.. We will make sacrifices.. but be careful ~ Let’s not leave behind those whom God has called us most to show His love and ways……
What you are given from God ~ steward well. I believe it will be multiplied for His glory. You may not see it all in your generation, but press on.. Have great faith, beloveds.
Are we growing in taking each thought captive to have a stronger mind of Christ? Do we ask what He is thinking? What do you think Jesus’ thoughts are on eschatology ~ study of end times? What does He truly care about? What does He focus on? Try to always see through His point of view.
His Word in Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” We are not called to lean on our own understanding, but simply to trust in Him and submit to Him… That is how He will make our paths straight. Goodness is already here, He is here. He is helping us each step of the way. Let’s love on all.. and share His goodness…..
Whether rapture happens tomorrow or in our great-great-great-great grandchildren’s time.. Let’s remember that our end could be at any moment. Whether we are already almost leaving earth due to old age or sickness.. Or suddenly we are taken in a car accident.. Time is getting shorter and shorter for each of us.. We are all getting closer and closer to our eternal place..
All in just days apart, my family lost several friends. For the ones who knew Jesus.. we are sad as we will miss their physical presence.. But we also rejoice and celebrate knowing that they are in heaven! No more suffering, they will receive their crown.. Hallelujah. Free in the perfect love of our Savior.. For those who did not accept God’s invitation, those funerals feel completely different to me. As there is an eternal kingdom of God, there is also an eternal hell. It is so important to pray for salvation and to trust in God’s perfect plan. He is a God of perfect redemption.
The Book of Hosea is a powerful and timely message on redeeming love. Hosea was a prophet and was led to marry Gomer, known to be a prostitute. Hosea knew about her sinful and promiscuous lifestyle. They had children together.. and then she left him. But Hosea went to find her. She had become a slave.. In order to get her back, he had to pay for her. So he bought her back.. He rescued her.. Hosea continued to love Gomer. She could’ve been stoned to death.. Despite what others thought she deserved, her husband showed her relentless love.. ~ Compassion.. loyalty.. faithfulness.. I see Hosea as resembling God.. and us as Gomer.. When we are seeing how beautifully God loves us.. we as His bride.. learn to love better.. Our Daddy restores us.. and we don’t go back to those old ways.. His love is triumphant ~ truly changing our heart..
Do you see the beauty in ending days?
Many of us have turned away from the Lord. But all praise be to our God ~ We are now in times of Church revival… family revival… love is reviving us. I have so much hope that prodigals are coming home.. We will grow deeper in love with Jesus. Our God who redeems us.. and rescues us.. He will not let go. Unending love is His nature. Our Daddy King is refining us.. building us up.. for His everlasting Kingdom.
Royal family of believers.. the end is just the beginning! We enter into Paradise! Full communion with JESUS. As we don’t know when our last day will be.. for ourselves or anyone else.. We must share the good news with all. Stand firm in love and gentle boldness ~ in Jesus. Be on guard. Let there be unity in our actions.. hearts.. and thoughts to glorify and honor Him.
Saints, dwell in the heart of our God.. Stay strong in your faith.. Obey His voice.. Keep praying for one another and for all.. Do not give up on encouraging all who are in your path.. Receive His grace. Walk humbly in His mercy and love.. How blessed are we! ~
Rush to the Lord in His love! He passionately loves you! Sing praises all day long! Fall into His arms as His adored and immeasurably loved child. Rejoice always in His goodness.. He is God of all our days ~ forever. Hallelujah.
