Watch and Be Ready

"Northern lights" have been spotted across the entire southern and central U.S. over the past week. Photos of these lights are all over the internet. When I read what the "experts" have to say about where these lights are being seen, the words used are "baffled" "mystified" "puzzled," in other words the 'experts' are clueless, or deliberately not reporting the reason behind northern lights appearing all over the south/central U.S.

Do we really need experts to tell us that something is not right here? It is obvious that everything is not business as usual. And where are we seeing these lights in strange places? "Up" in the sky, the heavens. Something is causing this strange anomaly. Do we need to know "what" is causing this? No, its enough to know for certain that its happening. We know for a fact that what is happening in the skies above our heads is not normal.

Does it matter that Nibiru or Planet X or asteroid this or comet that is causing strange things to happen? No, what matters is that every Word written in the bible is coming to pass just as it was written. The Word of God is a rock, every Word in it is true.

We must be watching and ready for our Lord to appear. He may show up tonight, or 30 years from now. Either way we need to be watching and ready. There is no doctrine that can confound this. Readiness 24/7 cannot be "one upped" by anybody. Those who teach and preach a delayed or "sometime later" arrival of our Lord will likely be caught unprepared just like the foolish virgins of Matt 25.

The Lord gave me a slightly disturbing thought a few days ago. Basically He said that the church has no problem ridiculing Israel for missing the Lord's first appearance on this earth. "How could they not see" they ask incredulously. These same people who cannot fathom why Israel missed the Lord's appearance on earth will themselves not recognize the Lord when He calls those found worthy up into the clouds in the rapture. Most of Israel did not recognize the Lord when He first showed up. Most of the church will miss the Lord when He next shows up. Who is this apostate church to mock anyone? Why that amazed look on their faces?

The Lord asks us today:

Luke 18:6And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. 7And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? 8I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”

If He does not find faith on earth, what will be the consequences? The world has been put to sleep by the enemy, and a gospel of grace (once saved always saved) that has become a license to sin. It has been put to sleep by a doctrine of devils telling you not to watch or be ready for the Lords return today. "Don't be foolish" they say, "theres plenty of time" they say. "This has to happen" or "that has to happen first before the Lord can arrive" they say.

Read the Words of the Master carefully brothers. Our Lord did NOT put qualifiers in His command to watch and be ready. If He said to do it, He meant now. Not tomorrow, not the next day, not next year, NOW.

This writer has no remote idea when the Lord will arrive for us. None, not even an inkling. This writer does however have a fire burning inside that says WATCH and BE READY. Take it for what its worth.

grace and peace
