Hang In There

Apparently the comets this writer has been writing about are only the beginning of things to come. The bible clearly tells us that the Lord acts through His creation to judge His creation. For example, how did the Lord save the Israelites fleeing from Egypt? He parted the sea (the creation). How did He judge the hardened hearts of the Egyptians following them? He crashed the sea (the creation) down on their heads. That's just one example. In Noah's time the Lord sent alot of rain to create a flood, and the list goes on.

We know from the book of Revelation that "extinction level events" are coming. That is a biblical fact. Would you call 25% of the earths population being handed over to death in the first seals of Revelation 6 an extinction level event? That's around 2 billion people. I'd say that those 2 billion people would certainly call the opening of the seals "extinction level events" when they are opened.

Today the governments of the world are building survival seed banks and digging underground bunkers as fast as they can. Does this have any tie in to the book of Revelation? Sure it does. The Lord tells us that people will be hiding in caves from the wrath that is falling down on them. Today we know that at least 3 comets are inbound to the earth. One of those comets is code named "ELE-nin" for Extinction Level Event and Eleven-Nine or 9/11 in reverse. Does this have any tie in to the bible? Sure it does, we just talked about all the cave digging and the death toll from opening the first seals of Revelation 6.

What else do we know? We know that whatever is coming is not the end of the world. We know that this world has at a minimum seven more years ahead of it which has been marked off in Daniel 7 as the time of "Jacob's trouble."

The celestial bodies approaching the earth may be the beginning of the time of Jacob's trouble. The bible is full of heavenly signs that are part of the end time judgement and wrath for this wicked world. The Lord judges the creation through the creation and we can see with our own eyes some potentially hazardous creation heading our way.

With all this said, should we fear? No. We have been asked to do the simple things that we all know we should be doing every day, judgement or no judgement. We have been told to have faith, to fear not, to believe, to pray, to have mercy on the widow and the orphan, to provide for the poor and homeless, to be merciful and forgiving and full of thanksgiving and rejoicing even in these dark days.

The world is going one way-toward its destruction. We are going the other way-toward are redemption.

Hang in there. Don't beat yourselves up. If you haven't been doing the things you think you should be doing then pick yourself up, dust yourself off and begin. Each day is a new beginning until the days are no more. Each day comes with its own strength and challenges. Do what you can do today with what the Lord has given you.

If you can't be a superman in the Lords service thats fine, He never asked you to be superman. Learn the lesson from the parable of the talents in Matt 25. Do what you can, however little that may be with your little strength, in your weakened state today. Do something, anything so that you are not found as a servant who buried their talents when they knew their master expected a return on His investment. We are talking about talents here, and those talents are different for each one of us.

Seek the Lords face again today. Ask, seek, knock and the door will be opened for you. Keep the faith. Love deeply and rejoice always.

These are the things this writer hears the Lord speaking today.

grace and peace
