A Few Notes From The Lord

We will start with the "new normal"-The Lord is doing something new here.  While many of us are striving to get back to the "old normal" the Lord has been trying to get the world's attention.  This has been written before here but it merits repeating.  The current "abnormal, new normal" has been introduced by the enemy for evil but has been allowed by the Lord for good.  Stop and let that one sink in for a moment.

Too many people in this world and the Church were asleep at the wheel during the "old normal."  This current oppression by the agents of the enemy (Soros, Gates, Fauci, ie the globalist cabal) has been allowed by the Lord to snap us out of our funk.  The viruscam is a wake up call.  The antifa/anarchist/communists who would murder us by the millions if allowed to are a wake up call.  The plans of the enemy laid out on the table for all to see (HR 6666, Gates mandatory vaccination plans, Luciferase chip implants etc) are a wake up call.

All this ^^ is a plan to murder and enslave us by the enemy and an opportunity for us to wake up and escape by the Lord.  In His mercy the Lord often warns before He allows judgement to fall:

2 Peter 2:5

And God did not spare the ancient world—except for Noah and the seven others in his family. Noah warned the world of God’s righteous judgment. So God protected Noah when he destroyed the world of ungodly people with a vast flood.

One could argue that we are again living in the days of Noah where a few voices are calling in the wilderness to repent and return to the Lord while the vast majority of the world slides further into the abyss.

Luke 17:26Just 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.

So, what the Spirit has impressed on this servant is that He has no interest in any of us returning to the "old normal" which had many of us asleep at the wheel.  We are in the midst of a historic wake up call that can be viewed as good or evil or both depending on how you look at it.  We should adopt our Lord's point of view and awake from our slumber, refocus our attention on Him, rededicate our lives to Him, walk with Him, talk with Him etc.  In chaos there is opportunity.  In this current chaos the opportunity is there for us to snap out of our slumber and get squarely back on the narrow road that leads to life.

The world and the Almighty both want our attention.  We choose who gets our attention.  Its easy to be distracted with all that is going on but now more than ever we need to focus our attention like a laser.  Speaking of focus, here is a little gem that brings the message home for us today.  All of the above is an entreaty for us to get right and stay right with the Lord (righteousness).  Why?  Because He is coming back on a day and hour nobody knows (not my words, His Word).  Why else should we focus today?  Because there is an escape from all that is about to happen planned and one of the specific warnings was against "dissipation."  What is the opposite of dissipation?  Focus.  That means we should be focused, like a laser on our Lord and Savior.

    Luke 21:34“Be on guard, so that your hearts will not be weighted down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of life, and that day will not come on you suddenly like a trap; 35for it will come upon all those who dwell on the face of all the earth. 36“But keep on the alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.”

Who told us to be always watching for His return?  He did.  Who told us we would not know the day or hour of His return?  He did.  Who told us there is an escape from all that is about to happen?  He did.  Who told us to pray always and be on guard?  He did.  Unfortunately this world is full of people who run around telling Christians not to bother doing the things the Lord God explicitly told us to do.  What is worse is people listen to them.  There are some things in the Bible that are hard to understand, this is not one of them.

The solution to the rapture debate has been found, its kind of shocking it took so long for us to realize it.  How is the rapture debate solved?  By doing exactly, precisely what the Lord God told us to do.....If we are watching and praying for His unexpected return every day, we cannot be deceived and we cannot miss the rapture period.  End of story, case closed.

The world is very distracted right now.  The Spirit of the Lord has warned this servant who passes this message on to you reading this right now that we need to wake up and refocus.  Time is short.  Events are in fast forward and they will not slow down, welcome to the new abnormal normal.  If we do what we were told to do (focus and rededicate ourselves to the Lord) we will have a peace and power this world will never be able to understand.  Our God made us many promises and one of those promises was a promise of escape from all that is about to happen.  As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be again.  Noah escape 100% of the flood of his day.  There is another escape coming and we must walk the path forward with eyes wide open for our Lord and Savior.  He said He was coming back on a day and hour nobody knows (not even Him!) but only the Father.  He will do what He said He would do, guaranteed.  The promise of an escape from all that is about to happen is iron clad.  It will happen just as it was written it would happen 100% guaranteed.  We dont have to wonder about it because the one who promised cannot lie and cannot be thwarted.

Isaiah 43  You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord, “that I am God.
13Yes, and from ancient days I am he.
No one can deliver out of my hand.
When I act, who can reverse it?”

Focus, rededicate, get right and stay right with the Lord our God.  He is coming back soon so He (in His mercy) allowed this world to receive a wake up alarm that nobody could bury their head in the sand and ignore (current events).  Stop trying to get back to normal and become comfortable being uncomfortable in this new abnormal normal understanding the big picture of whats going on not just whats right in front of our face.

Glory to God

grace and peace
