I have not written in sometime now but I feel I must talk about the enemy’s attacks on mankind. There’s so much bad news that I don’t watch it at times because it’s overwhelming. I’ll only mention 2 stories which are horrendous… which is the hundreds of girl captured in Nigeria and the hundreds of Nigerians killed in mass village killings, also the many random mass killings here in the USA.
These things are shocking to me as well as all the other many horrible events happening everyday with constancy now but these events were predicted by God Himself in His word. Please take the time to read the whole scripture at the end of this blog which explains what will happen in the last days.
Things are progressing very quickly now. Even the unsaved are talking about it….so EVERYONE does know something’s up.
Everything is going according to schedule! It’s OK to be shocked by the events taking place but we should not be surprised. We can be appalled by the blatant show of sin but we should not be unschooled about why. We should not be in a state of fear for our safety, security or provision…but we should know that God has given us power, love, and of a sound mind when we walk in the Spirit of God. He’s promised to be our shepherd.
8″Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. 9″Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. 10″Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.… Matthew 5:8-10
We are too blessed to be stressed!!!
We are to remember the great commission:
16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:16-20
We are to do this:
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— Ephesians 6:18
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8
We have this promise:
Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. 2″In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. 3″If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.… John 14:2
And finally God will:
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelation 21:4
So my dear sisters and brothers….hang in there! It’s a very difficult and scary time because we don’t know if we will be the next news story… but I tell you to continue to walk in the spirit, be brave and remain hopeful because you have Jesus…the good Shepherd in your life. Put on the whole amour of God!!! Jesus was greatly tempted by the devil and viciously attacked by him and eventually put to death and four things that helped Him through it all are:
- He knew the word of God!!!
- He prayed to the Father!!!
- He was obedience to God!!!
- He Trusted God!!!
If you don’t know God like you should or you go to church on Sunday and think that you’ve done your good deed for the week….when the devils plans touches you and your family you could be swept away with fear and anxiety! You will need Prozac or Valium! Delve deeper into the things of God now….don’t wait. Decide today that you will take your faith much more seriously.
You all know I’ve been going through a lot these days and I tell you…I get around now with Jesus holding me in His arms!!! He carries me everywhere! I passed out long ago!!!! Thank you Jesus! Thank you so much!!!!
This is what’s going on in 2014-?
2 Timothy 3
3 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8 Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith; 9 but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was.
10 But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance, 11 persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra—what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
