More Dead Birds-Your Redemption Draws Near

This time in New Mexico, another group of dead birds found along the highway.

Why should we take notice? At this point we are not dealing with one group of dead birds that can be explained away by the nonsense given to us by the media. What we have now is a multi-year pattern of dead animals....its the pattern over an extended period of time that cuts through all of the ridiculous explanations offered to us by the 'experts' to put us back to sleep.

What are you talking about? Why is this written on a blog that belongs to the Lord?

Luke 21:8He replied: “Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am he,’ and, ‘The time is near.’ Do not follow them. 9When you hear of wars and revolutions, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away.”

10Then he said to them: “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. 11There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.

^^^This is why. That, and this:

Luke 21:25“There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. 26Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. 27At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”

Notice with me that both these sections of scripture are woven together in Luke 21. Luke 21 is where we also find the command for us to pray for escape (which many choose not to do).

What do we read there in verse 28? When these things begin to take place...We are to stand up and lift out heads up when these things begin to take place. Why? Our redemption draws near. Have "these things" begun to take place? Signs in the sun moon and stars? Nation rising against nation, and kingdom against kingdom? Yep. Earthquakes? Yep. Famines? Yes. Pestilences in various places? Yes. Fearful events? Yes. And great signs from heaven? Depends on who you ask but I would say..Yes.

So again I ask you, have "these things" begun to happen? Yes. And if they have begun to happen what were we told to do? Look up. Why? Our redemption draws nigh. If our redemption draws nigh what should we be doing? What does the Word say? Matt 24-25. Parable of the virgins, parable of the talents.

From Matt 24:42“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

45“Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. 47I tell you the truth, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, ‘My master is staying away a long time,’ 49and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. 50The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. 51He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

What is the Lord saying to the churches today? Look up-your redemption draws nigh, watch, be ready, be patient, do those things you know you should be doing-use your 'talents' don't bury them.

Notice that the parable of the talents Jesus was not upset at the servants who showed some profit. Only the servant who showed nothing, zero, no profit or increase whatsoever on what he was given-that servant was in big trouble. So do something, anything, take baby steps, do micro tasks whatever, anything to show something to the Master when He returns for us.

There have been many signs in the sun moon and stars lately. For example comet "Lovejoy" just flew right though an area close to the sun that was somewhere in the vicinity of 1-2 million degrees farenheit (give our take a few hundred thousand degrees). Now please help me to understand how a dirty ball of ice (what were told comets are made of) flies through a million or two million degree temps and comes out the other side without being destroyed? I know I'm not an 'expert' but do you see the problem with the story here? Go stick a snowball in a 500 degree oven and let me know how long it closed.

There are things going on above our heads that most people are blind to, and the rest who do see and understand are lying to us. Comet ELE-nin was not a destroyer, but it was a sign. Dead animals by the thousands falling all around us-another sign. This past September while ELE-nin was right on our doorstep Rev 12 was playing out above us in the stars:

^^a huge the stars. Signs in the sun, moon and stars. They are here and they are ongoing. Have we seen all the signs yet? Not even close, but what did Jesus tell us? When these things BEGIN to happen...begin to happen..begin to happen..begin to happen-let it sink in, then look up because your redemption draws nigh.

These things have begun to happen so look up. This writer is looking up. Be ready to leave here today, but also be ready to wait for the Lord indefinitely. It can be difficult to do this but the Lord never promised us this would be easy.

How much longer? Why bother asking? If the Lord told us, most people wouldn't believe it anyway. Let's do what we were told to do. Keep the faith, watch in prayer, stay in the Word which is your readiness (feet shod with the armor of God-the gospel of peace which is the Word-Eph 6:15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace).

grace and peace
