Warning and Encouragement

Warning: this world has a sin problem and the wages of sin are death. This writer has noticed a decided downturn in the world in general towards self induced destruction. People are acting and speaking in a manner exactly as indicated by the Lord here:

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

Yes, they have been this way for quite some time but what I have noticed is a new level of debasement.

The Lord has also impressed upon this writer the absolute worthlessness of all forms of current "news." That includes all of what calls itself "alternative media."

Today more than ever we are seeing a generation of deniers, liars, deceivers, shills etc. These people tell us "there is no rapture" and "don't worry, there is no destruction coming." Just as it was in the days of Noah remember?

The book of Revelation lays out quite clearly what is coming and what that is is anything but "business as usual" for this world. A discerning eye that reads Revelation can see that many of the judgments imposed on this world will come from space. The Lord historically has judged the creation through the creation. Ask yourself how the Lord will shake the entire world? How will the Lord level every mountaintop? How will the Lord remove every island? And, how will He do this through the creation? The answer to these questions with an eye on what is happening with the planets, comets etc can get you in the ballpark for a good answer to these questions.

Encouragement: There absolutely will be a pre-tribulation rapture. As it was in the days of Noah and Lot, they escaped ALL of the judgements of their day at a time before Jesus Christ our Advocate was revealed, how much more will escape from judgement prevail in our day than it did in their days?

Lies make people slaves which is why we are told the truth shall set you free. This world is overflowing with lies of every kind today which means people are enslaved whether they know it or not. The truth and only the truth will set you free. If you value freedom then you need to intake mass quantities of the truth and the only place you will find the truth today is in the pages of your bible. Your "pastors" and priests cannot be trusted. Do not trust a word this writer says. Go to the Lord your God for the truth you need and feed on it daily. The Lord your God alone can be trusted today. His Word can be trusted to the uttermost. The Word of the Lord is precise to the extreme. Every Word in it is a rock that you can stand on to stabilize your life and bring you peace in these dark days of lies and deception.

Do not fear. Yes, the day the wicked fear is coming and it will wreak unimaginable havoc and terror on this world, but WHY SHOULD THE RIGHTEOUS FEAR? They should not fear. Tell the righteous that it will go well with them, but the wicked will reap the whirlwind of he does not change his ways.

Jeremiah 38:20 "They will not hand you over," Jeremiah replied. " ...

... "Obey the LORD by doing what I tell you. Then it will go well with you, and your
life will be spared. ... Your life will be spared, and all will go well for you.

Isaiah 3:10Tell the righteous it will be well with them,

for they will enjoy the fruit of their deeds.

11Woe to the wicked! Disaster is upon them!

They will be paid back for what their hands have done.

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

Keep the faith. Maintain peace, hope and love. Be watching. Be ready.

grace and peace
