Watching and Ready

In September 2011 we had a number of warnings centered around the Feast of Trumpets. For example, remember the events around the constellation virgo that took place exactly on 9/29? It was Revelation 12 playing itself out in the heavens. We also had comet ELE-nin moving through the solar system. Neither one of these events proved to be anything destructive in and of themselves. Does that mean we write everything off to business as usual and carry on as if the end of the world were not upon us?

What we have seen this past month and for years now really are a series of warnings. Open your bible and read for yourselves how many warnings Jesus Himself gave us. How much of the bible is dedicated to warning the people of the Lord? Alot. We have been warned to be watching and ready for the return of our Lord Jesus Christ. Signs are everywhere that the day of the flood will be upon this world soon.

Go re-read Matt 24 and Luke 17 and what you will see is the Lord warning us. We are told:

37But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 40Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

What's the warning we are given here? The warning is that in the days of "business as usual" that were before the flood things were happening just as they are today. Then what happened? Noah entered into the ark. Then what happened? The flood came and took them all away. So, at least one of the lessons in this warning is, dont get too complacent in these business as usual days. Don't be one of those who "knew not" until the flood came. Be watching and be ready for the Lord's return.

We as servants of the Lord do not have to guess what is coming. We don't have to wonder whether days will continue in a business as usual fashion. We dont have to wonder whether doom on an unimaginable scale is coming upon this world. The book of Revelation makes it clear. The words of the prophets make it clear. The sins of this world are stacked up into the heavens, and there is no repentance. Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. The Lord and His Word have been declaring this from the day that He first set foot on this earth.

Doom on a scale that no writer can even imagine is coming to this world. Days that are so dark that mens hearts will fail them are coming to this world.

So what you ask? So those of us who know with certainty whats going to happen, should warn those who "know not." A warning is a blessing, not a burden. We are attempting to pluck souls from the fire that awaits them if they do not repent and return to their faithful Creator.

We are not out of the woods yet this year. Earthquakes and volcanoes are popping all over the earth. The USGS has been caught red handed numerous times deleting data so as not to alarm the public. I saw one writer attempt to downplay our days by saying "the data doesnt really reflect an increase in earthquakes" so its all just a false alarm. Really? Dude, wake up and get a clue..please. Check your sources before you attempt to put people back to sleep. My guess is these so called "christian" writers are disinformation agents. Who cares who they work for, their message is a lie.

When disinformation is everywhere, we must be spiritually sensitive. What does the bible say? What is the Lord impressing on my spirit? What direction does the Lord have me looking these days? These are the questions we should all be asking ourselves.

We were told to be watching and ready for the Lord's return. The Lord did not give us permission to stop watching whenever we want. We can stop watching for the Lords return when we are standing face to face with Him.

The Lord uses the creation to judge the creation. He has used locusts, famine, flood, disease, etc to judge the creation in the past. Which parts of the creation will the Lord use in the future. I am not sure, but based on what we know is going to happen the arrival of something like Nibiru/planet X appears to be a good guess. Why even talk about this? because the arrival of something like Nibiru also means the arrival of the Lord in the clouds for us. We have proven that the rapture of the church will be pre-tribulation. When we see tribulation like events right on our doorstep, shouldnt we be even more watchful and ready for the Lords return?

The powers that be on this world are very very interested in whats going on out in space. Why is that? Signs in the sun, the moons, the stars. Even the devil believes the bible is true, and he trembles. If the bible says something is going to happen, the devil and his minions know for sure its going to happen, and they unlike most of the world are preparing for it...

It is this writers opinion that something like Nibiru/planet x/whatever is on its way in to close proximity with the earth. Thats why google sky and others have cropped out large portions of space for us not to see whats out there. The arrival of this thing will also mean large scale destructive events for the earth, tribulation like events. That means the pre-tribulation rapture of the church is not far away.

Now to caveat. We must prepare our minds to be on this earth another 20-30 years or more. Of dates and times brother, we need not write you...remember? Is it possible that the Lord will tarry for years more? Yes, it is possible. Revelation 3 tells us to keep the Word of His patience. We must be patient. We are told to accept suffering like good soldiers of Jesus Christ. The suffering we endure while we are on this earth is not an unusual thing, it is normal for us and we must bear its burden with grace. The foolish virgins of Matt 25 were not prepared to wait, and they paid for it. We have been called to be wise virgins who bring extra oil for their lamps because they are prepared to wait. We are ready to stay for however long we are called to be here.

We also must be ready to meet the Lord in the clouds in the twinkling of an eye any moment now. We must be ready to go. We must have our affairs in order today to leave this place without a single look back. Our hearts and minds and spirits must be detached from this world today. Where our treasure is, there our hearts will be also. We must be ready to go.

This is the difficult calling we have been given by the Lord. We are always ready to stay and do His bidding on this earth, and we are always ready to leave this world at a moments notice. Is this easy? Not by a longshot. If it were easy, many many more would enter the kingdom of heaven but we know that most wont make it:

Matt 7:13Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Only a few will make it through the small gate and narrow path that leads to life. The Lord didnt write this to demoralize us. He wrote these things to us to give us a clear picture. Again, the Lord never told us this would be easy:

Luke 14:27And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. 28For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? 29Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him, 30Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.


Be ready to stay. Be patient for however long it takes for the Lord to arrive. Be ready to go. Have your hearts prepared to leave everything behind at a moments notice. Be watching and ready through prayer and the Word of God.

On a personal note, the Lord has been answering prayers and even the intentions and desires of my heart even without me asking Him for things lately. He has been incredibly over the top good to this servant recently. That said, I've been asking Him about whats going to happen in the future and I'm not getting anything even remotely dramatic from Him. I am not receiving/hearing/being impressed with any specifics about anything. What I believe the Lord is saying to us today is what I have written to you in this post today. Matthew 24 and 25 stand out as the Lord's Word to us today.

The parable of the virgins and the faithful servant of Matt 25 stand out today. I would tell you as a brother, that we should be on high alert for the remainder of this year and into 2012. The Lord has not given me specifics but I cant shake the thought that we dont have much time left here. My thoughts could be wrong, I guess we'll see. My thoughts could be wrong but the one way you cannot go wrong is to always always always every moment every day be ready for the Lord to return. That is a guaranteed formula for success prescribed for us by the Lord Himself.

P.s. What kind of warning is ELE-nin? Extinction-Level-Event, Nibiru-in-November? I don't know, just be ready okay?

Keep the faith, grace and peace
