Japan Has Gone Silent-Day 5 of 77 of Watch

Edit: This evening at around 10pm eastern standard time 3/24 they had another 4.8 in the usual area. Broke the silence of two days :-)

After seeing thousands of quakes strike the same area of Japan over the past year, now you can't find a single quake there. Take a look:

The area around Turkey however is an entirely different story. Earthquakes are all over the place.

Why write about earthquakes here? The Lord has directed this writers attention to this particular sign of His coming. A destroyer is inbound to the earth. The latest installment in this saga was the 8.4? 7.9? 7.4? quake that hit mexico on 3/20. The USGS and other governments have been caught time and time again revising their data downward or completely erasing data so who knows how big that quake actually was.

The takeaway from that quake was yet again it did not strike a highly populated area, there were no reported deaths. Thank the Lord. These warnings are acts of mercy toward mankind. The warnings are coming from every corner of the earth these days. Strange sounds, volcanos going active, earthquakes frequent and intense, animal deaths, people at each others throats more than ever, on the verge of economic collapse, on the verge of WW3, etc.

What is it that keeps all of these things restrained today? The Restrainer. When the righteous are removed, just like in the days of Noah and Lot, then destruction comes on the same day. The Word of the Lord said it and we have been seeing this restraint for years now. I have been amazed at the Lord's patience and longsuffering towards this world. I would have thought we would be out of here years ago but here we remain. What has this taught me? This waiting and restraint can go on indefinitely. That's right, the same God who has restrained the forces of destruction and lawlessness can hold them back like the waves of the red sea were restrained during the exodus from Egypt... for as long as necessary.

Could 2012 be just another year of signs everywhere and restraint holding back destruction? Sure it could. Or, we could be pulled out of here and all hell breaks loose. This is why we must be watching and ready for the Lord each and every day. Those people who believe they have some other sign or signal to look for before the Lord can return are gambling in a gamble they are likely to lose. How can you possibly go wrong with watching and readiness each and every day? You cannot go wrong. If you are watching and ready every day then REGARDLESS of when the Lord returns you will be ready. Do you think that's why we were told not to concern ourselves with dates and times?

We will see who the wise and foolish virgins are soon enough. I would not wish entrance to the tribulation on anybody, not the "other tribbers" not the wicked, nobody. If it were up to me every soul would be given some other kind of wake up call, but not the tribulation.

This is day 5 of 77 in my watch for the Lord's return. I am not predicting anything, I am watching and preparing for the return of the Lord in an above average way over a period of 77 days. I have seen enough evidence for me to believe this kind of watch is warranted.

Today I believe there are two things the Lord conveyed to me. 1. Mercy, there is still time to repent and turn back to the Lord for restoration and right standing with Him. Its not too late to turn around. 2. There is a growing chorus of criticism and mocking of my attention to the earthquakes. Let me say this simply, the Lord has directed my attention as I stand watch. My Commander has given me orders. I will obey those orders and watch where I have been told to watch until I am given new orders. Mock if you want to. Criticize if you want to. A destroyer is inbound to the earth, I am now certain of it. What this destroyer is exactly I do not know and I don't particularly care. What does it really matter? The effects will be the same regardless of what we call it.

If you want to know what the effects of the arrival of this destroyer are, read the Word of the Lord. Here are some of them:

- peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning and an earthquake.

-hail and fire mixed with blood hurled down upon the earth. A third of the earth burned up, a third of the trees burned up, and all the green grass burned up.

-a huge mountain, all ablaze, thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turns into blood, a third of the living creatures die, and a third of the ships are destroyed.

- a great star, blazing like a torch, falls from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water, the name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turn bitter, and many people die from the waters that become bitter.

-a third of the sun will be struck, a third of the moon also, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them turn dark. A third of the day will be without light, and also a third of the night.

And all this is just a small sample of whats coming to the earth. This ^^ is not my opinion or speculation, this is the Word of God Almighty who has spoken it and it will come to pass exactly as it was written.

This world and those who belong to this world have a script written around every event that will take place during the tribulation. They will use every excuse and figment of their imagination to explain away all the events that will arrive as a result of judgement wrath and vengeance. They will use every lie and misdirection at their disposal to attempt to hide the truth from the inhabitants of the earth. The people of this world latch on to these lies like a life raft to explain away the truth. They do not want the Creator or His Son, they want their own ways. As the revealing (revelation) plays out, many will die holding onto the lies they seek refuge in. It does not have to be this way. People have a choice, they are able to choose.

Today is a day of mercy and restraint. The Lord is holding out His hands to every person on this earth today. The path that leads to life is narrow and the gate is small but the gate is still open. If anyone is listening today, seek your Creator. Turn away from rebellion and break yourself on your knees before the God who knows you inside and out. Accept mercy and grace today while they are offered. A time is coming when wrath and judgement will be offered and mens hearts will become hardened. Today (so far) is not that day. Time is running out.

Keep the faith. May the Lord's grace, peace and mercy be upon all of us.
