Why is the Lord pointing to Passover and Sukkot with these signs? What is the significance? Passover did not end well for the enemies of God. Go re-read what the Lord did to the Egyptians. Are we about to see a modern day repeat? If we read through the pages of Revelation it would appear so.
Look at this passage:
|... They were told not to damage the grass of the earth, or any green plant or tree,|
but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their forehead.
What is happening here?^^ The people who are sealed are "passed over" while those who are not are harmed. This is just one example of what is coming. The escape from all promised in Luke 21:36 is another form of being "passed over." Noah and Lot were passed over as well in their day and it will be just like that on the day the Son of Man is revealed
26“Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. 27People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.
28“It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. 29But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.
30“It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed.
This Thanksgiving let us take time to remember all that the Lord has done for us. In the mind of this writer, Thanksgiving is one of the most holy days of the year. It is a day that embodies what we should be doing each and every day of the year. Let us remember our faithful Creator who is forever praised and give Him thanks for what He has done and what He is going to do.
All glory and honor and power and might and splendor and all the worship and riches be unto our God and Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ forever and ever AMEN.
