I haven’t written much as of late and there’s been a reason for this. I haven’t felt released to really write anything even though there are many things inside that I needed to say. I’ve been asking God to show me what I needed to write about but every time I sit down to write nothing comes. So, in the meantime, I’ve been sitting back observing and praying about all of the things going on around us. I’ve also been visiting other websites and blogs and seeing what the prophetic voices are saying as of late. The one thing that really sticks out is that it’s very late, the storm clouds have gathered, and I can’t fathom why there are so many even so called Christians that can’t see this. When I talk to unsaved people, even they know that something is wrong. Many of the unsaved seem to have more discernment of the times than the people of God. The Lord warns us in Hosea 4:6 (KJV), “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.”
My admonition for the body of Christ is to Pray...Pray...Pray! Seek His face like there is no tomorrow. If you do not have a prayer life, it’s time to get one. No more excuses. If you don’t have time…make time. It may mean sacrificing some sleep to get up earlier or stay up later, but the important thing is to make it a priority. Turn off the TV and pray…turn off the computer and pray…..do whatever it takes and make some sacrifices in your life to seek the face of God. I Thessalonians 5:17 (KJV) instructs us to “pray without ceasing.”
Pay attention to what is going on around you. Your life and the lives of your loved one will depend on it. Don’t necessarily look for one big thing, but pay attention to the small things that are happening every day. Jesus illustrates the need to pay attention to the times and what is going on in Matthew 16:2-3,(KJV) “He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. And in the morning, It will be foul weather today: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?”
It is important now more than ever to keep a short account with God. When you sin, do not wait until the end of the day to repent. Pray for His mercy and seek His face:
I Chronicles 16:11, “Seek the Lord and his strength, seek his face continually” (KJV).
Zephaniah 2:3 (KJV), “Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord's anger.”
Psalms 91:1 (KJV), “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”
Isaiah 5:6-7, “Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon,” (KJV).
Change is on the horizon and will affect us all in one way or another. If you have loved ones who don’t know Jesus, petition the throne of God each and every day for them. Ask Him to have mercy upon them and to draw them to Himself. You are going to have to stand in the gap for them and others who are lost. If you don’t who will? The battles that we are facing are going to be much fiercer than those of the past so don’t be thrown off guard by the things that are coming against you. Satan knows that he only has a short time and will do whatever he has to in order to take as many souls to hell as he can. The battle lines have been drawn. Choose ye this day whom you will serve.
I believe that many are going to be swept into eternity as a result of future events that are unfolding. I don’t know if it will be a single event or multiple events. The best advice that I can give is to be ready to meet the Lord at all times. As war breaks out in the physical realm this is just a manifestation of what is going on in the spiritual realm. Remember to stand firm with the whole amour of God because our fight is not against flesh or blood, but against spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:10-12, paraphrased).
