What does any of this matter and why mention it here? For whatever reason the Lord has dialed my attention in on these earthquakes. A review of the Word tells us the Lord approaches with earthquake and shaking the earth. Earthquakes are a divine sign. An example from the book of Revelation:
Rev 6:12I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, 13and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as late figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. 14The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.
As you can see from the earthquake pattern described in the first paragraph above, it highlights the spring and fall of the year....every year. In addition to the spring mega-quake we should see in 2013 based on the rock solid pattern established over a period of years, we will also see two spectacular comets in 2013. Interestingly we will see them in the spring and fall...
At this point you may still be asking "so what?" So...in 2014 and 2015 we have the much discussed solar and lunar eclipses that fall precisely on the Lord's feast days:
The Lunar eclipses:
Passover April 15, 2014
Feast of Tabernacles October 8, 2014
Passover April 4, 2015
Feast of Tabernacles September 28, 2015
The two Solar eclipses connected with Holy Days in 2014-2015:
Adar 29/Nisan 1(new year) March 20, 2015
Feast of Trumpets September 13, 2015
Look at the dates of these feasts, when are they? March/April and Sept/Oct, spring and fall. This precisely matches the earthquake windows we have been watching for years. Mega-quakes occur in March/April, large quakes occur in the fall. This has been a pattern that this writer has drawn your attention to for years because the Lord pointed it out and has kept this writer's attention dialed in on it.
No man knows the day or hour of the Lord's return. What we do know is we are staring at a growing body of evidence, untainted by man's influence pointing to the spring and fall feasts of the Lord. We have earthquakes, comets, and signs in the sun and moon. Do you think the Lord is trying to point something out to us? I do.
What is going to happen? I have no idea. We were not told to predict the future or to be factories for times and dates. Men who have tried to predict times and dates in the past have all been wrong...all of them. We were told to be watching and ready for the Bridegroom so perhaps we should do that. We were told to be faithful, so perhaps we should do that.
|... Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?”|
Notice the Lord does not ask if He will find grace on earth, He asks will He find FAITH on earth?
Faith has to do with what you believe. Do you believe? Do we believe the Word of the Lord is true? The Word of the Lord IS Jesus Christ our Lord:
John 1:1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning.
14The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only,d who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
The enemy has been busy attacking what you believe. Recently the enemy has been attacking the Word concerning the abomination that causes desolation. I have lost count of how many people claim there will be no rebuilt Jewish temple, and there will be no abomination setup in that temple, and there will be no flight to the mountains etc. These people are directly attacking the Word of God which is a direct attack on Jesus Christ our Lord and by extension a direct attack on us since we are "in Christ."
We do not have to predict the future because we already know what is going to happen. What we do not know is when these things will happen. For this reason we were told to watch, every day. The Bride does not know when the Bridegroom will come for her therefore she has to watch every day. How many people calling themselves Christians tell you not to bother to watch today? How foolish.
Luke 21:36 Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”
Did the Lord not make it clear enough for us? What does "always" mean? Be ALWAYS on the watch, that is not brother D's opinion that is a command from the Lord. Pray that you may be able to escape ALL that is about to happen, and that you may stand before the Son of Man....again not brother D's opinion but a command from the Lord. How many preachers and teachers today tell you not to bother praying for escape? The Lord commanded us to do it but men tell you not to bother. How foolish.
When the Lord returns will He find faith on earth. Faith in what? In Jesus Christ. What is Jesus Christ? He is THE WORD OF GOD. The men who tell you not to be watching always, and not to bother praying that you may escape all are attacking the Word, the Lord Jesus and your faith in the same.
If the Lord told us to pray for escape from all, do we believe Him that there is an escape from all? If He told us to pray for something we have to believe it exists otherwise the Lord's command is nonsensical. Do we believe the Lord gives us nonsensical commands?
Matt 251“At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2Five of them were foolish and five were wise. 3The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. 4The wise, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. 5The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep.
6“At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’
7“Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. 8The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.’
9“‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’
10“But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut.
11“Later the others also came. ‘Sir! Sir!’ they said. ‘Open the door for us!’
12“But he replied, ‘I tell you the truth, I don’t know you.’
13“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.
The Lord makes it very clear for us, the virgins who were ready went into the wedding banquet, therefore KEEP WATCH. Readiness and watching are tied together here. Those who refuse to watch because of their man-made or demonically inspired doctrines will likely suffer for it. Do not believe me, believe the Word, what happened to the virgins who were not ready in Matt 25?
What happens to those people who will not watch?
|... repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief,|
and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee
The commands are very clear. No man yet has been correct about dates and times, NOT ONE so when men tell you not to bother watching and being ready today because "at some time something or the other has to happen" before the Bridegroom can come for us, should we believe them?
Watch, period. Be ready NOW, period. And do these things every day until the Bridegroom comes for us, period. And we must be patient while we watch in readiness:
Rev 3:10Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth.
Today more than ever this writer has no idea about the timing of things. The Lord has proven that timing is His department. He told us what to do, let us do it. We have some convincing signs coming up next year and the year after but we do not know what they mean or when things will happen. All we do know is we should be watching and ready and we should do so with great patience so let us do that. The Lord will do what He said He would do. The Word will prove itself down to the very last letter.
Done for today, may the grace and peace of God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
