And the signals just keep coming in. Sounds from the heavens, major earthquakes, wars and rumors of wars, next week is the Feast of Trumpets/Rosh Hashanah, comet ISON is inbound, lunar tetrad and solar eclipses on the Lord's feast days and after that or in that general time from 2015? Some other large destructive celestial body should be making its presence known.
Times and dates are the things no man can get right, only the Lord knows exactly when things will happen. The appearance of so many signs around us should have us on high alert. The Lord told us to be watching at all times and ready. Ready for what? His appearance. No, not the 'second coming' but His appearance in the clouds and the sounding of the trumpet that calls us home, also known as the blessed hope.
What if the Lord calls us all home next week during the feast of trumpets? How wonderful would that be? Is it possible? Oh yes. That is why year after year we remember the Lord's promise that an escape from all that is about to happen is available to those found worthy of it (Luke 21:36).
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.
grace and peace
