And Then The End Will Come

When will the end come?
Get your stuff ready, build the shelter, hoard the food, live like nothing matters….            all a farce.
In every generation, many have been fooled by someone that can sell you a bridge with your name on it. Let’s face it false teachers selling their agendas on end time events are gaining popularity as more and more people are being duped into their agenda, they make a feeble attempt to match up the Bible with their “opinion” on when these events will take place- “Did you see that thing in the sky?” Or “How about all these earth quakes, hurricanes and floods?” And so on and so on-this has the effect of placing fear/anxiety/hopelessness in the hearts of people who don’t know the truth of the Bible.
Matthew 24:36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

Brothers & Sisters if you don’t know the Bible you will be tricked into believing and buying these false teachings. There is no sequence of numbers, blood moons, natural disasters or potential wars- Jesus says these are birth pains and tells us to look for the signs,
Matthew 24:4-8
 Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.

Confirmations that we are getting closer:
– False Messiah’s (false teachings, anyone who leads you away from God) Some will fall away from God and follow false teachings of spirituality/growth potential/positive influencers or pastors following their own agenda and twisting the truth of the Bible.
– Nations are gathering against Israel, boycotting their products and services, the UN vote to block the move of the embassy to Jerusalem and the ongoing Gaza boarder war. You can read more on this link: https://www.timesofisrael.com/the-10-most-anti-semitic-countries/
Many countries are defending and gathering together to go against Israel, what we must do is to watch watch and wait for what will be coming next.
– Persecution
Jesus continues on to say that those who are Christians will be persecuted, which is happening now more than ever. The morals and values in which we seek are not God honoring.
Matthew 24:9-13 “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.
If faced with the decision to worship Jesus or be thrown in jail, possibly put to death, many will run, trying to save their lives. God is still in control and the gospel will continue to be preached all over the world, regardless of what people think, say or do.

-Anti-christ
Jesus tells us clearly the anti-christ will stand in the holy place (temple) in Israel and proclaim he is God, (He will be highly regarded and people will think he is the savior) that is when things begin to accelerate. Many will fall away and be deceived by great “signs & wonders.”
Matthew 24:14-25 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
 “So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation, (Anti-Christ) spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand—then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.  Let no one on the housetop go down to take anything out of the house. Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak. How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers!  Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath. For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again.
“If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.  At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you ahead of time.

Jesus tells us immediately after those days
Matthew 24:30-31  
“Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.

Jesus concludes in Matthew 24:32-34 by saying to be aware of the sign of the times, be aware of what is happening in the world around you. He says : Heaven and earth will pass away but my words will never pass away.” That gives us the knowledge to continue serving and looking for Him everyday. Stay in prayer, these days are getting harder for us, the world is turning from God and looking to their own lives for comfort, no matter what happens you know that Jesus promises you eternal life when you worship Him. Stand on that truth everyday brethren, He shall return and when He does the judgement will fall on those who have turned away from God.

Learn & Grow

Last week I was at a Bible study and there was a woman there that was so full of the Holy Spirit, I was amazed that I found someone who is strong in faith, no wavering. I have met people over the years that spoke strongly in the word of God, but when I walked away I just didn’t feel that “holiness” that is connected to a faithful follower, I’m talking about someone with no issues, they can follow God but somehow the vain slips in and you just know they aren’t fully engaged in God.

This woman taught me something about myself, she taught me, I still have a long way to go yet in studying, denying myself, understanding scripture and fully devoting myself to God in the way that I should. So if I could rate her on her walk, I would place her at in the top 5 people I know that are fully devoted to the word and walking in it.

I love Bible studies because you think you know more than you do when you walk in, when there are people in the group that just know more than you! They may pray in a mighty way and place the line all at Jesus feet, it’s pretty amazing how they love Jesus. So I guess what I am saying to you today is, get involved in a Bible study, if you are studying alone that’s great too but honestly, it’s so much better when you can see another perspective on scripture, maybe there was a hidden nugget you didn’t even know was there (I get thrilled when I find one!).

Lastly, we always need to surround ourselves with godly people, because they help us to engage in the word, discuss it and apply it. So I encourage you today to go find one that moves your heart and mind in Christ Jesus. To listen and be discerning in what you hear. Be alert and on your guard and mostly grow as a Christian.

Shalom

America, what happened?

Isaiah 16:10

 Joy and gladness are taken away from the orchards;
no one sings or shouts in the vineyards;
no one treads out wine at the presses,
for I have put an end to the shouting.

For many years America grew and prospered, for many of us, we lived a good quiet life and God was the head of our lives. We went to church (some out of guilt, others for the love of Christ) and tried to obey God’s commandments and if we strayed, we would always have a conscience about our actions. This great country America, has now closed it’s doors on God, taking His commandments out of the schools, buildings and even some churches as people go their own way ignoring the Creator. God is patient and kind, He shows mercy, but for how long?

If everything you had today, all your wealth, house, family was gone, what would sustain your spirit? So it is when God takes everything from this earth, don’t act surprised when you read this, but God will destroy the earth, we do not know when but many are saying we are getting closer as signs and wonders fill the skies and the earth.

So then, if today, you were to meet God, what would you say?                                   Were you ashamed of Him?                                                                                           Did you stop someone from sharing the gospel with you?                                             How are you really preparing for the end of your life?

All these are important questions, as well as what did you do in God’s name for others? How did you serve Christ and partake in the lives of others?

My hope for you, brother and sister that you heed to the words of God through scripture and go to Jesus in prayer and thanksgiving as you repent of the sins you have done through your life. Listen, we all have fallen short of the grace of God, but it is God’s grace that saves you.

Shalom!

What Jesus Says About The Last Days

Based on Matthew 24

Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives and said-

vs 4`Don’t be deceived, many will come and say “I am the Christ”

People that follow human leaders 

vs 6 ` wars and rumors of wars, don’t be alarmed, the end is still to come

World threats, terrorism

vs 7 `Nation against Nation, Kingdom against Kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places

Rise in tension across the world, Increase in earthquake activity, 

vs 8` All these are the beginning of birth pains

vs 9` Great persecution will come because of me

Severe persecution of Christians is on the rise in countries all over the world

vs 10` Many will turn away from the faith and betray eachother

Selfish generation living without God or knowing about God

vs 11` False Prophets will appear and deceive many

TV evangelists, church leaders and wicked leaders are deceiving many

vs 12 ` Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of many will grow cold

We see this in our current time through betrayal

vs 13` but he who stands firm to the end will be saved

All that calls on the name of the Lord will be saved

…to be continued

“In The Last Days”

Acts 2:17 ‘In the last days,’ God says,
‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy.
Your young men will see visions,
and your old men will dream dreams.

My friends, those of you that love the Lord, my prayer for you this day is to be strong in the Lord and He will lift you up. The persecution of Christians is coming in a fierce way. We will not have rights as time moves forward unless we stay in prayer and focus on Jesus. This is a pivotal time in History, things are changing and laws are being passed that do not adhere to Gods word. So that being said my friends, pray, pray, pray!

We are to love others and pray for our enemies even the ones that go against God, for we are not people’s judge, only God is. Leave it all to Him in these dark days. But we have the light of Christ, so be that for others!

Shalom!

Reaching The Mountaintop

You see so many people trying to climb to the highest Mountaintop, it takes endurance and strength and a will to keep going. How often do we face this same thing in our lives? We are trying to get to the mountaintop, something comes from the outside and detours us into an avalanche, so we slow down, maybe stop, we sometimes want to retreat but something inside of us tells us to continue on. We continue slowly up that steep rocky crag and suddenly we can see the top, but it’s far, should we stop right where we are and wait to see if there are options around the big overhang that is in front of us or do we decide we came far enough now that we seen the top I am satisfied? We have all been here. Not wanting to go beyond what God can give us strength to do. That’s when you think, do I have enough trust and faith to get all the way there? Or is God telling me to be satisfied with what I have achieved so far?

Turning back is the easy way, you think what you left was great but when you were there it was tough too. Having to face the past isn’t easy and letting it go is harder even still. But I say to you, what could happen if you get to the Mountaintop? I believe Jesus is there waiting for you, you can’t see Him behind that large rock overhang because it’s separating you from unbelief. Stay the course, tough it out and get to the Mountaintop and achieve what God has planned for you.

Shalom

Blessing & Faith

Isn’t it wonderful when you come through a storm in your life and at the end the blessing from God appears?

We just never know where God will lead us in storms, the storm may feel overwhelming and the situation won’t ever end or you don’t understand why things are going the way they are, what’s the hold up? But God has such an amazing outcome of blessing, doesn’t He?

You may never know what God’s plan is for your life, why you came into the world and what your steps will be. But instead of trying to figure it all out, surrender it all to God and see His mighty hand work in ways unimaginable and that my friends is where faith   sets in to you, having a lifestyle of waiting.

So I will leave you with this scripture for today:

Hebrews 11:1 

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

We must always:  Walk By Faith

We must always:
Walk By Faith

Changing The Way You Pray

So often I am looking just for the right prayer, do I look in a prayer-book, the psalms, where is the best place to find just the right prayer?

Oh how the Holy Spirit is your guide on this matter, He knows your heart and what you need, as you depend on Him so much more your prayer life becomes more dependant on Him. He guides the prayer, sometimes to a psalm, sometimes the deep internal need from your soul. Our connection to Jesus is through the Holy Spirit’s guidance and who would know you better than He? (yes, the Holy Spirit is a He)

But let us never to forget what Jesus told us to pray,

The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
The power, and the glory,
For ever and ever.
Amen.

Remember we must follow what the scriptures say to us, pray without ceasing. Shalom

The Bigger Picture

Often times, it seems like when things aren’t going the way we want them to, like when  we lash out or are wondering what’s the hold up? The things that motivate us to get what we need right now isn’t the way that God sees our destiny. Prayers can be unanswered sometimes, ok maybe a lot, but many are answered. That doesn’t mean God doesn’t hear us, it’s His timing, not ours.

So if you are stuck in traffic, instead of moping about, thank God, He may just be saving you for the unknown ahead. An example of this is, when ever we get frustrated with a light or with people going 15 miles an hour ahead of us, instead of throwing a fit, think that God is at work and so are His angels of protection.

Sunrise from the East

Sunrise from the East

The bigger picture is so overlooked, we want what we want, right now! But God sees something better, that picture could bring about a changing in your life that you thought could never happen. We ask God to give us “stuff” but He’s bigger than the stuff and what he’s going to do in you next will be monumental!

Shalom           Nancy

Show Kindness

Job 6:14  “Anyone who withholds kindness from a friend forsakes the fear of the Almighty.

In the book of Job, he shows his committment and love for God through his trials that God had allowed. But have you ever found yourself here in the scripture where Job is telling us if you aren’t being kind to a friend then you are forsaking the fear of God. Job’s friends were telling him that it was something he did wrong that God was punishing him for it, but that wasn’t the case at all. Job was in the midst of his trials as God was testing him and his friends as well. Were they turning their backs on Job?

Our friendships are very important to God, how we treat our friends is a lesson on how we are treated. If you are turning your back on someone who is genuinely kind to you, talking against them, ignoring them, not listening or compassionate then what do you think you will receive? God has made us in the image of Him and when you turn your back on others and treating them poorly you, in turn are doing this to God. That is where forgiveness is a big part of your behavior because kindness isn’t being reflected. You can’t go through life holding the hand of a friend who isn’t learning thier lessons, but you surely can be there as an anchor for them in times of troubles. They will never forget you for that, it’s that important.

So what if you are not able to forgive that person? They may have done something so bad that your heart has soured towards them, put them at the throne of God and realize who you are not forgiving because God wants us to be kind to all, forgiving and letting it go.That’s how you grow in God.

Shalom

Nancy
