The Signs Keep Coming

A town called "herald" recently experienced a "biblical" invasion of locusts.  See for yourself:

Herald-according to
A person who carries or proclaims important news; a messenger. 

This kind of events is about as "in our face" as the earthquakes in Christchurch, NZ.

What is this event in California "heralding?"

Rev 91The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss2When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss. 3And out of the smoke locusts came down upon the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth. 4They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads. 5They were not given power to kill them, but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strikes a man.6During those days men will seek death, but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them.

We are looking at a sign pointing to the opening of the abyss and locusts coming down upon the earth.

These are the kinds of things we have been seeing now for years as we sit upon the edge of the razor waiting for the tipping point.  As always we must be watching and ready, especially this year. The enemy and his camp expect the Lord to give them permission this year to setup their 'world order.'  They can only go as far as they are permitted to go.  They are being restrained by force.

We shall see soon enough either way.  Meantime we must embrace the teaching of Rev 3:10 and the parable of the virgins in Matt 25.  The church in Rev 3:10 was rewarded for their patience, as were the wise virgins of Matt 25.  They brought extra oil in jars-prepared to wait.  Today is the day of patient waiting and watching in readiness.  We are to rest while we watch.  The rest I speak of does not mean we do nothing.  It means we "enter the rest of the Lord."  The good we have been sent here to do we must continue to do, while we rest.  Sounds strange to the carnal ear, may the Lord be our guide.

Heb 41Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it. 2For we also have had the gospel preached to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because those who heard did not combine it with faith.a 3Now we who have believed enter that rest, just as God has said,
“So I declared on oath in my anger,
‘They shall never enter my rest.’”b
And yet his work has been finished since the creation of the world. 4For somewhere he has spoken about the seventh day in these words: “And on the seventh day God rested from all his work.”c 5And again in the passage above he says, “They shall never enter my rest.”

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
