We just had a 7.3 three days ago in Japan, think this is unusual? You bet it is.
The pattern for the destroyer has been spring megaquakes and fall very large quakes. Now we have moved into December large quakes as well. What does this mean? We should be watching.
Why has the Lord instructed this servant to be watching these earthquakes? To point them out to you. To put an exclamation point on them. Okay, but why? How about:
|At that very hour there was a severe earthquake and a tenth of the city collapsed.|
Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake
|There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven|
and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it.
Job 9:6 He shakes the earth from its place and makes its pillars tremble.
Why does the Lord use earthquakes? Because they are an attention getter, especially if you experience one personally. Read the scriptures above, who wrote that? The Lord God Almighty wrote that. Whose signs and signals are they? The Lord's, not brother D's imagination, they are a sign and a signal from the Lord God.
When we have back to back 7+ earthquakes in the world, I'd say we might want to snap out of our slumber, sit up and pay attention. To what? To what the Lord would say to YOU. Not what brother D would say to you, what the Lord would say to you.
What is the Lord saying to this brother today?
Pray for yourself, your family and all the brothers that your sins may be forgiven and that you may be counted worthy to escape all that is about to happen and stand before the Lord. Give what you are going to give to the poor. Turn your back and your heart on this world and its desires. Give yourself fully to the Lord body soul and spirit. Listen to the Spirit, what is He saying? Do what you know you should be doing.
This brother has no idea about times or dates. I 'feel' like something is going to happen very soon but feelings are traitors. The Lord told us to be patient. Matt 25 is full of counsel for us, both the parable of the virgins and the talents fully apply to us today.
The Lord may pull us out of here today, who knows? Or, we could still be waiting 5 years from now. I cannot fathom that but it is absolutely possible. We are being tested by time. Will we keep His command to endure patiently?
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.
Please pray for all the brothers, for your family, and for this brother (and his family). I remember you in my prayers.
grace and peace
