Wow, are things ever ramping up!
(Great video below on timelines)
Moments ago Mexico experienced another earthquake, this time a 7.1 near Raboso.
Wars and rumors of wars, weather, disasters, fires, all of the kinds of things that the Bible speaks about as being “end times” events are happening all around us. Sure, every generation has it’s issues, but when you pile on all of the biblical prophetic dates on top of the many current events that are going on in our world, I can only realistically come to one conclusion:
Jesus is coming to meet us (Christians) in the clouds soon.
My question for you is this: “Are you ready?”
If you are NOT already a Christ Follower, please read the following.
What does ready look like? First and foremost, you have to make a decision – are you going to be a participant of the tribulation that leads to Armageddon, or are you going to be a spectator from a safe distance? Believe it or not, that’s a choice that you have 100% control over. And no one is likely going to twist your arm about it.
Essentially, you can profess that Jesus Christ died on the cross, was buried, and rose again three days later (1 Cor 15:3-4) – and that his blood was shed for your sins, past, present and future. If you believe and profess that (and you can do it right now) then congratulations, you are a Christian, and will be joining us in Heaven during the 7 year tribulation. Christ’s blood shed on the cross completely and totally protects you.
If you don’t choose this option, then you will still have an opportunity to survive the tribulation period, but most likely instead of Christ’s blood protecting you, you will have to shed your own blood, and die as a martyr to be with Jesus. Given the nastiness that the bible describes as happening during the 7 year tribulation, choosing the first option really is the better deal, and comes with a whole host of benefits that are too numerous to list here.
IF you ARE a Christ Follower already, please read below:
Aren’t you blessed? Can you believe that we are part of a chosen generation of Christ Followers that live in the very time of Christ’s return, as promised in the Bible for thousands of years? I still find it amazing – really? We are the generation that will never sleep (die?)
But as you ponder this, this comes with a heavy responsibility. If you are like me, where evangelism and winning souls for Christ were not your mainstay, you have at least a couple of days to remedy that. I offer you this passage:
But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.
Do you feel the weight of that? I already feel as though I have sorely fallen short of it. But there’s still some (brief) time to make a difference, and add to the family of God. And with all that is going on in the world, I’m finding people very open to conversations, much more open than I would have expected.
Remember that saving people is not your job, it’s Jesus’. You are just the messenger. And not everyone you speak to will be receptive to your offer – so think of it as planting seeds. When we are all taken away, people that you have spoken to will remember this conversation, and may seek answers – they still have a chance of salvation during the tribulation.
And one more comment – you may have to step around your self image (as I did) – let God work through you – I have been amazed what happens when I just take the step. Consider talking to even one person a day – that could be one more soul in eternity.
But time is running out – God left the Revelation 12 “sign in the heavens” for us as a marker of time. While we don’t know exactly when events will transpire after that, there is enough data available to say that if not immediately, it will be very soon after the Revelation 12 sign, which occurs Saturday morning, 9/23 (PST). And friends, if it does not happen on or close to that, do know that it is very close – there are way to many indicators in the world to ignore. The ultimate date and time are up to God – but He has told us the season, and we are in it.
Please join me!
With much love,
