4 Days and Counting

 Tomorrow is the fall equinox or the official change of seasons.  Tomorrow will be 9/22/22 (2222).  These 222s have been all over the place in this servants life so he can only assume there is more than just ordinary associated with this season.  Interestingly this morning of 9/21/22 President P of that large country that starts with an R declared a partial mobilization of troops and issued a stark warning to the west that R is willing to use all means at its disposal to defend itself against Nazi aggression.  You can be sure that man is not bluffing.

Now consider what the psycopaths have been telling us on this side of the world that they want to "build back better."  The only way that statement makes any sense at all is if what exists now is first destroyed.  One does not build a new house on top of an old house.  The old house must be leveled or gutted in order to build something new.  So, it would appear that at the moment the psychos are getting their wish.  They want to sweep this world with a broom of destruction and it appears short of Divine intervention they will get it.

What is interesting about these recent events is not the events themselves but the timing of the events.

Ecc 3 1There is a time for everything,

and a season for every activity under the heavens:

We do not know exactly which scenario the Lord has in mind for this season but we do know regardless of which option it is, we need to be watching and ready.  The scenarios are:

1.  The Lord pulls the Church out of this world shortly and the world turns upside down.

2.  The Lord does not pull the Church out but intervenes directly to Restrain the adversary.

3.  The Lord does not pull the Church out and allows the adversary to plow full speed ahead with minimal Restraint (if the Church is here, He who Restrains is here)

Most people are living their lives as if everything is business as usual, completely unaware how perilous the situation around them is.  The Lord God predicted such a scenario thousands of years ago:

Matt 24

36“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, f but only the Father. 37As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 40Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. 41Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.

42Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

45“Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. 47Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, ‘My master is staying away a long time,’ 49and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. 50The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. 51He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

The Lord told us multiple different times in multiple different ways what the situation would look like.  He has also given this world multiple wake up calls to get our attention before the really bad things arrive.  That is called grace and mercy.  At some point He drops the hammer and we do not know exactly when that is.  Our job is to be watching and ready for whatever the Lord our God does (and allows), and whenever that happens.

We were told to be patient and persistent.

Rev 3

10Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.

Heb 12

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,

9/22 is the date of season change in the year of our Lord 2022.  If the Church is pulled out of this world and full attention is turned to Israel that would certainly qualify for a major season change.  9/22 is the fall equinox then Rosh Hashanah is 9/25-9/27 at which time a new Shemitah season of "7" begins.  Lots of stuff going on in short order.  

Regardless of what happens over the days ahead we should be wise virgins who are watching and ready for the Bridegroom to show up at any moment.  What happens if He doesn't show up in the days ahead?  We continue to do what we have been doing, always watching and doing whatever work the Lord God has for us to do in this world until He does show up or our time here expires.

We are ready to stay and work and ready to go at a moments notice.  Let us see what the Lord has in store for this world.  

Grace and Peace

Glory to God
