Rev 3.10Because you have kept the word of my patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
There are many who turn back to the world out of boredom or impatience. Again, what does the Word say?
Matt Be Ready
44Therefore be you also ready: for in such an hour as you think not the Son of man comes.
45Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord has made ruler over his household, to give them food at the proper time?
46Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he comes shall find so doing.
47Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
48But if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delays his coming;
49And shall begin to smite his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards;
50The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looks not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Yes, the Lord delays His coming but nobody guaranteed any of us that our heart continues to beat tomorrow. The Lord could call any of us home at any time. That means our readiness must be all the time, not on special days or weeks or months, always. Always? Yes, always....
Luke 21:36Watch therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
In about a week and a half the 8th of October and the second blood moon will be upon us. The first bloon moons (spring) are the yellow lights (caution), the fall blood moons are red lights (stop, warning). Watch and see what happens after this second blood moon. This world is in for a punch to the gut that will buckle it over onto its knees.
How do we avoid all of these things coming upon the entire world? Take shelter in Christ. No, this is not just a figure of speech. Jesus Christ and the Spirit of the Living God is real protection, real shelter, a real fortress. The protection and shelter are REAL.
|In the shelter of your presence you hide them from all human intrigues;|
you keep them safe in your dwelling from accusing tongues.
|I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your|
|Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.|
Isa 25.1O LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you, I will praise your name; for you have done wonderful things; your counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.
2For you have made of a city a heap; of a fortified city a ruin: a palace of strangers to be no city; it shall never be built.
3Therefore shall the strong people glorify you, the city of the terrible nations shall fear you.
4For you have been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, for the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.
And the examples in the Word go on and on. This nobody who writes to you today can testify that His Word is true and can be trusted to the utmost. If He says He is a shelter, He is a shelter. If He says He is a refuge from the storm, He is a refuge from the storm.
This writer is proof in the flesh that the Lord God does not lie and His Word is true. A storm is coming, trust Him...
grace and peace
