Luke 21, The Tribulation, Walking With Our God

"There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be
in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.

Watch this video and tell me what you see:

Not only do we have the roaring of the see, we also have signs in the sun moon and stars.
We are in the middle of a lunar tetrad on the Lord's feast days punctuated with a complete solar eclipse on Adar 29 (March 15, 2015).

What is Luke 21 about?  The tribulation, the time of Jacob's trouble.

Today, my city was sprayed with aerosol from dusk till dawn.  Hundreds of aircraft turned the pristine blue sky into white disgusting soup.  And for what?  They are trying to do something that nothing can be done about.  The weather patterns of the world are out of whack, a 5 year old could tell us that.  The video above is clear objective evidence that this world is bucking and kicking against the inhabitants of the earth.

How are they going to fix the raging sea problem?  They can't spray that away.  They just don't get it.

This year already has been extreme from about every perspective you can look at it from, and we are only 20 days in.

This bears watching and readiness on our part.  The world is sleepwalking through it all.  They see a piece here and a piece there but they do not want to know the whole because the whole points to the end.  No more pride, no more arrogance, no more lies, killing, stealing, and destroying.

Isaiah 2:11
The eyes of the arrogant will be humbled and human pride brought
low; the LORD alone will be exalted in that day.

The world is already being humbled right now today and most are oblivious.  Do we believe the Lord tells us the path is broad and the gate is wide that leads to destruction and many go through it for nothing?

What are we to do in the midst of this?  Walk with our God.  Do not fall behind Him, do not get ahead of Him but walk step by step with Him with our eyes on His face and our ears straining to hear His voice.  Last year when I asked the Lord what I was to do, He told me to be a man who walks with God and to do whatever good my hands find to do.  I asked Him again this year, what am I to do for you Lord?  Silence.  And in the silence the gentle urging of the Spirit tells me to continue to do what I have already been told to do, but more so.  Be a man who walks with God, and do whatever good my hands find to do.

If you are reading this, there is something in these words for you as well.  Be a man or woman who walks with God.  Moment by moment, hour by hour, day by day, let us walk and talk with our God.  Let us do whatever good our hands find to do.  What is my mission, what is your mission in this life?  We who believe should strive to be found in the exact center of our Lord's will for us.  That's it.  How do we do that?  We walk and talk with Him.  He does not think the way we think.  If there is something pressing He wants you to do for Him, trust me, He knows how to get our attention.  He certainly knows how to get mine either the easy way or the hard way and I have no interest whatsoever in the hard way...

As men and women who walk with God, we are rewarded with peace.  Peace in a world turning upside down is a very great prize.

You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are
steadfast, because they trust in you.

grace and peace
