According to the Lord's measuring stick 70 years is an important measurement. Some say 70 is a lifespan some say its a generation but neither is the point of this statement, 70 is important:
Psalm 91:7We are consumed by your anger
and terrified by your indignation.
8You have set our iniquities before you,
our secret sins in the light of your presence.
9All our days pass away under your wrath;
we finish our years with a moan.
10Our days may come to seventy years,
or eighty, if our strength endures;
What is May 14, 1948 plus 70 years? It is May 14, 2018. This date also happens to be after the current Jubilee year into the next "7" Shemitah cycle. So what? So, that date is not so far away and when we view that date in the context of current world events we see, its just time. Time for what? Time for everything that has been written to be fulfilled. Its time for the fourth beast of Daniel, it is the time of end time Babylon of Revelation 18, it is the time of seals, trumpets and bowls. It is time.
Most of this world is sleepwalking into all of it, who would have guessed? They suppose its just another turn in world events. The miss the fact that this is the turn in world events not 'a' turn. We have the evidence all around us, Islam (the fourth beast kingdom) is taking over the world. I just saw an article today proclaiming some judge in the United States just took her oath on the Quran with a hijab on. Why has this happened? Why has this been allowed to happen? Its just time.
Who would have guessed the western governments allow wholesale Islamic invasion to take place in their countries? Who would have guessed we would have muslim judges in the United States taking their oath on the Quran instead of the Bible? Regardless of who guessed it, it is here. The ironic part in all this is all those who promoted "tolerance" to allow the wholesale overthrow of western civilization, they themselves will have the most intolerant of boots on their necks in the days to come. They will hear "convert or die." The ironic part is these people will be forced to worship one way or another. They will either worship the god of islam by force, or they will worship the God of Heaven by choice, either way they will worship.
So what? So the God of perfect timing told us thousands of years in advance what would happen so we would understand the days we are living in. In these remaining days it appears to this writer the only clear choice is to do exactly precisely what our God has told us to do from the beginning. Give thanks, praise, worship, turn away from sin and do the will of our Father who is in heaven.
Matt 12:46While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him. 47Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee. 48But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? 49And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! 50For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.
John 14:15“If you love me, keep my commands. 16And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will bec in you.
We do not know when our Lord will return for us so we must be doing what a faithful servant would do in their Master's absence
Matt 25:14For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. 15And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey. 16Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents. 17And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. 18But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money.
19After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them. 20And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. 21His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
We do not have to predict the future, that has already been done for us by our Lord. What we have to do is exactly what He told us to do and do it now. Why? This world has run out of time.
grace and peace
