The Clock Has Started

 Regardless of what the outcome of this election is, a clock has started for this world.  A Biden win means there is a little less time, a Trump win means a little more time but not much.  Thankfully this world is making it easier by the day to disconnect and redirect attention away from all the things that do not matter.  For example, sports use to be a nice distraction from the day to day grind but now that even NASCAR has turned into a social activism platform all of those distractions have been turned off.

You cannot watch television, movies or even try to stay up to date with what is going on in your own neighborhood without finding some kind of political or social activism that is anti-Christ, anti-God and full of hatred or antagonism.  The answer?  Turn it all off, all of it.  Not even an additional minute should be spent on things that are not part of our end time mission going forward.

Things are not going to end well for this world because of the precise attitudes, practices and policies being implemented everywhere around us.  The best selling book in world history (the Bible) tells us exactly what is coming and if we were guessing before how or why those things would happen we do not have to wonder anymore.  

The fireworks that are coming do not appear to be far off and have been predicted by the Bible for ages.  Here we present the first two seals to be opened in the book of Revelation:

The First Seal: Rider on a White Horse

1And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. 2And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

The Second Seal: War

3And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. 4And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

A quick look around at the not so United States today would leave an outside observer to conclude that the events of the second seal are not too far off.

Bottom line for us is time is short.  The exact details of what is coming down the road next and when is not as important as what we are to do about it.  We need to be ready when the Spirit of the Lord tells us to do something.  If He says jump we need to ask "how high?" then get to hopping.  If He tells us to move we need to do it with haste.  A countdown clock just started for this world and most people do not hear it ticking.

It is time to focus on our "talents" (Matt 25), prayer and fasting.  The faster that events move, the more tuned in we need to be to the Spirit of the Lord.  After all, He is the one who told us a couple thousands years ago this was all coming.  Most of us do not need any additional information than we have right now to be busy 24/7 with our work for the kingdom.  A laser like focus on the Lord from day to day is our first job and our second job is using our skills/abilities/talents to serve as the Spirit directs us.  That is it.  Time to get busy.

grace and peace
