I love being on the beach, it brings a sense of serenity, of calm that God is in control, and that everything is alright. Many people cannot see this, they cannot realize this truth of His presence, and for most people that truth will come too late.
The lies, the deceptions and the diversions will have become too ingrained, planted to deeply within their minds. They will have spent far too much of their lives concerned with the temporal, and very little of that time will they consider the eternal, on the one who created that great ocean out there, the one who placed the commandment upon it of “This far, and no further,” on the One who said, “Peace, be still.”
On many social media sites, these truths have become self-evident, for those who believe themselves to be in control at this present time have determined to change truth into a lie, to turn the lies into perceived truths, and to not allow what they themselves to know as the truth to be placed upon their sites. Each time one of these so-called important “breaking news” story arrives, I think to myself, “How can people fall for that,” but as time passes on I become less and less amazed by what people, and a very large part of them, will believe next. And not only those who have fallen for the deceptions, these diversions, but those who regularly pay attention to them, following along wherever they are told to go, giving much attention to that which has no real value, and will not last.
“Because we say so,” is now the flag flown over most nations, there is still an attempt to cause fear and undue stress amongst the masses with the latest variant, but it is rarely needed now, show most people the possibility of an adverse future, and they will flee from it, whether it is imagined or real. This has always been the main objective of our adversary in the lives of mankind, keep their attention upon that which may arrive, on a possible future that could be detrimental to their welfare, not on that which is. Skin for skin, a man will give all he has for his life. It’s why he is called the father of lies, and it is why this short video is made with those who have been blessed with spiritual discernment from the Lord in mind.
Matthew chapter 24 and Luke chapter 21 are two of the more relevant chapters in the Word of God for the born-again believer today, they are our portal into the events that are occurring, but simply reading them without dutiful and heartfelt prayers for Spiritual guidance from the Holy Spirit will, or may, lead just as many of the children of God astray as pertaining to these days as not. Without an understanding of these days that we find ourselves in, without studying them in the context that they have been given to us, we may, as many are, unintentionally lead others astray. Proper discernment of the Scriptures is always crucial, we are to study to show ourselves approved, but that stands as an even greater truth in these days that the Lord has determined to place us in.
To be able to warn others of oncoming danger, one must be aware of not only what those dangers are but be able to see them as they are approaching, the man on the wall looking for the enemy will be of no avail to anyone if he is asleep or cannot recognize the enemy. We are to be the light of the world in these dark days, we are to speak the truth, but here, because of the desire of those who oppose the Most High, we must employ Matthew, “be wise as serpents, but gentle as doves.
There are those who claim that we have already entered into the Tribulation period today, they are wrong, for the saints of God have not been raptured yet. (1 Thess. 4:17) There are others who profess we are in the last days, but those days started after Christ rose from the grave. “Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.” (1 John 2:18) The serpent is beguiling many, and many are not testing the spirits, they are not opening the word of God to see if indeed they are correct in what they profess.
What we are witnessing, in my humble opinion is not the hand of the Lord moving yet, but the prince of the power of the air (Eph. 2:2) being allowed more freedom to exert his will upon mankind. The fires, floods, earthquakes, volcanos, are all under his control, yet he has been limited to what he has been allowed to do in these and many other areas until the Lord allows him to. Men’s hearts are failing them for fear, violence is erupting in places that have been at peace for many years. There is a class of mankind that has determined within their hearts that they should be our rulers, that they are the privileged, and that the rules that they have imposed upon much of humanity are indeed for the benefit of all humanity. They are deceived as much, if not more, than many, for they do not realize who it is they serve.
It is the Spiritual realm that controls the destiny of mankind, (Jer. 10:23) more specifically, the Lord God Almighty, He decides the timeline, He decides who moves and when. If you have studied and applied the Word of God into your life, then these days have not come as a surprise to you, only the fact that we are witnessing them. It is the Lord who has determined to place you in this time, and it is upon Him that we must trust, follow and obey, no matter the consequences to ourselves. Yet we must be as wise as serpents as we go forth.
One can look upon these days and compare them to the account of Job in the Scriptures, first, remove all that he holds dear, then affect his flesh. The freedom to move around not only the planet, but in some cases even the neighborhood is now under the control of the powers that have been allowed to be set in place by the Almighty, access to many places and services is now denied, save for those who have acquiesced to their demands to receive a medical procedure. And our adversary spares none, even the youngest amongst us are being forced to obey in this manner. We are fighting against spiritual darkness in high places, and the battle is about to begin in earnest.
Indeed, for many people it will be too late, they have believed the lies, they have fallen into the traps, they have been deceived, and are being deceived. (2 Tim. 3:13) Sooner than we may think, there is coming a moment when not one single born-again believer will be on this planet. Every single person who has called Jesus Christ Lord and master will be removed, our testimony for Him will cease, our servitude to Him will end in this life, but many of our fellow human beings will be left behind.
Our responsibility, if you have been blessed with eyes to see and ears to hear, is to encourage the brethren that have been blessed in like manner, to those who understand by the power of the Holy Spirit these truths, and to stand on the wall and give the warning to those who have yet to call Jesus Christ Lord. Remember, many of these souls who are lost today will be your brothers and sisters for eternity in the kingdom of our Lord, they will not respond in love today, but they will during the time of Jacob’s Trouble, they will call upon Him whom they once denied, as we once did, they will glorify His name, they will exalt the name of Jesus Christ our Lord to all who will listen, and they will pay with their lives for doing so.
Do not let this opportunity to be a profitable servant pass you by. The Lord God has seen fit to place you in a time of approaching great trials and tribulation, He is asking you to deny yourself for His glory, to stand in these evil days, to warn all who will listen, no matter the circumstances or the possible consequences to yourself. Prepare your hearts to meet Him, strive to hear Him say unto you, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.
“Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.” (1 Peter 2:12)
Pray for each other.
