For the past few years I have noticed a sharp change in every area of mankind’s life and a severe change on our planet earth.  I’ve written many blogs over the years on what I’ve noticed.  I wrote a blog in 2011 on what is happening in this world spiritually which is predicted by God Himself in the bible. This is the main scripture for what’s going on:

2 Timothy 3:1-5 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2). People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3). without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4). treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5). having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

In the past few months I‘ve heard of some of the most heinous acts done that have been done to another human being.  I just can’t wrap my mind around it and I can’t even mention these things in this blog.  I’ve heard of these acts in remoted countries, but not here in the USA until now.  Hatred is at an all-time high.  Children are out of control with drugs taking over in their lives.  Child suicide is rampant.  Children as young as 7 years old are committing this.  Suicide is a very popular now in our society.

Financially things are a tremendous strain for many people as the middle class has dwindled away and the cost of living has skyrocketed.  Foreclosures and layoffs have affected millions of people. 

There are many medical situations such as cancer, flesh eating bacteria, HIV, drug resistant germs, Ebola’s return, many viruses and the worst flu epidemics.  Hospital ER’s, doctors’ offices and pharmacies are overrun with patients.

Mass shootings and killings are a COMMON occurrence.  Terrorist, robbers, sex traffickers psychotic attackers and rapist are lurking around making everyone feel unsafe. Nobodies personal information is safe anymore because of hackers.

The planet is also experiencing apocalyptic events.  Earthquakes, tsunami’s, tornados, hurricanes, volcano’s, droughts, fires, ice melts, global warming and unusual weather patterns.

Psychosis, depression, anxiety, and self-harming is at an all-time high.

Many religious leaders have had major moral failures. Church attendance is down.  Pastors are leaving the ministry and places of worship are closing their doors.

There is a pattern here and something is defiantly going on in our world today.

The cause, effect and explanation of this all is clearly spelled out in the bible, so I don’t need to get into that in this blog because God has spelled it out clearly in the bible. I do have something to say about this all though.

This is the time to:

  1. Make sure you have a close relationship with the Lord.  If you have NEVER asked Jesus to be your Lord and Savior…do so genuinely and immediately!!! Nobody is guaranteed one more second of their life on this earth.  You see, these days people are dying very unexpectedly and very quickly, at any age.
  2. Obey God!!!! God has said in the bible exactly what He wants you to do.  Currently for all humanity, this is even more important.  I believe there may not be any more huge revivals like back in the day.  I believe that those who are Christians will have to be in personal individual revival mode which could lead to a group/church revival.  Christians need to let their lights shine!  Christians will have to be living examples of their faith and share the gospel of Jesus Christ with the people they come in contact with, daily.  This is not a suggestion.  God says to do this in the bible.  This is the season to stand up for what you believe, promote the kingdom of God and be bold for your faith in Jesus Christ.
  3. You need to develop a prayer life if you don’t have one.  You need to pray all the time!!! Pray all day and night and under every circumstance for every situation!!!  Do you realize that nobody can really help you but GOD!  Doctors, lawyers, your mama and your daddy are LIMITED!  God is UNLIMITED in His ability to help you!  This is a fact!

That’s it.  You and God!  This is what I need to tell you today.  God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit is what you need in 2020 and up until the day you die.  What we thought was important years ago is not the same today.  What is important now is survival!!  Our health and safety are very important.  Keeping a job and having a place to live is high priority.   The highest priority is SERVING THE LORD!!!

Individually, we need to really focus on God. We Need to thank Jesus for what He did for us and serve Him!  God said in His word that we won’t the day that Jesus will return but we will be able to tell get an inkling because God gave us the warning signs to look for.  These warning signs are now appearing everywhere and is evident to all.

Now I’m not saying to all this so you can be scared out your wits.  I’m also not saying, let’s not have any fun or good times because life is collapsing around us.  I’m saying for our own sakes…let’s be wise, watchful, prayerful, obedient, evangelistic. Respect the times we are living in. We also must realize that it’s not only about saving lost souls, but it’s also about us gaining heavenly rewards. When we individually stand before our Great and Almighty God, we don’t want to be ashamed because we did nothing to build His kingdom.  We don’t want to be embarrassed because we told no one of God’s goodness and His love for His creations. 

This is it folks…. we are truly in the end times.  It’s very evident now.  What are you going to do about it?  How is this all affecting you?  Have you tried to reach out to God to be closer to Him or has this made you angry with Him?  It’s ok to be mad at Him because of all the suffering that’s going on but know that He owes no one any explanation for anything He does.  Know that He still is the only help and answer for every human being.  This is His world and His wayWe have to get with His program…. period!

I personally am going through a lot right now.  I’ll share just one of those things with you.  I’ve got health issues and I never know how I will feel throughout the day.  No cure.  I have to be VERY careful about what I eat and the energy I use.  I must be careful about germs because if I get sick weakens me for many weeks.  I also suffer with other health issues and have had major surgeries and have battled cancer.  What has God done for me through this?  He has been there!  I raised 6 kids with these heath issues.  God helped me incredibly!!!  I continued to do ministry throughout too.  It was very hard but God was there.  God is with me now…holding my hand, comforting me and covering me with His wings.  I sing precious Lord and His eye is on the sparrow to myself a lot.  I KNOW the goodness of the Lord in this life and I will know it in a very special way when it’s my turn to go to heaven. When I get there, I know that I will be able to rest from all the pain and suffering I’ve been to.  It will all be worth it!

But in the meantime, I will work for my Father God until my last breath.  I will say…I was born…I lived, and I died!  I want my “I lived” to be all that God had intended for me to do for Him.  There is no other way I can show my appreciation for all He’s don’t for me.

Turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look full in His wonderful face
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace

Mathew 24:3-8 As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. 6 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. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of birth pains.

I believe we are reaching the pert of the labor process that says “PUSH”.  This baby is almost ready to be born.  Jesus Christ return!!  The kingdom of God is near…. all hands-on deck!  Onward Christian soldiers…forward…march!
