You know some people can sleep through anything, even sirens and storm warnings, but with the storm that is approaching you can’t afford stay asleep!
“Look! The Lord’s anger bursts out like a storm, a whirlwind that swirls down on the heads of the wicked. The anger of the Lord will not diminish until it has finished all he has planned. In the days to come you will understand all this very clearly” (Jeremiah 23:19-20).
“And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” (Revelation 6:15-17)
The radar for planet Earth is growing ominously dark and it’s my prayer that you are awake and paying attention. It’s the goodness of God that leads us to, “stop and think” and that is exactly what God is doing right, He’s being good! And Jesus is asking us this question:
“Whenever you see a cloud rising out of the west, immediately you say, ‘A shower is coming;’ and so it is. And when you see the south wind blow, you say, ‘There will be hot weather;’ and there is. Hypocrites! You can discern the face of the sky and of the earth, but how is it you do not discern this time?’” (Luke 12:54-56)
“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!” (2 Timothy 3:1)
“Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience, in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them” (Colossians 3:6-7).
“When you see the wicked spring up like grass, it is that they may be destroyed forever. (Psalm 92:7).
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.
For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.”
“Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain!
Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; for the day of the Lord is coming,
for it is at hand” (Joel 2:1).
Can you hear the trumpet? Do you who have ears to hear? Are you hearing? What is the trumpet saying that is sounding right now? It’s the call to: “WAKE-UP.”
Are you awake?
President Obama is going to Israel to try and broker a peace between Israel and its hate filled neighbors by asking Israel to give up land for peace. On May 19th, 2011, three days before one of the deadliest tornado’s in American history, US President Obama announced his desire to see Israel retreat back to “1967 borders.” If you read Joel 3, you will read that the plan of any nations to “divide Israel” is a provocation of apocalyptic implications. This stage is being set even now.
At the same time, debt is being used as a WMD against national sovereignties and most specifically the dollar. The Bible has warned all who would listen, “The debtor is enslaved to the lender.” In case you aren’t aware, you are being sold into slavery. Have you seen the “debt clock?” Over 16.5 trillion dollars and counting and yet even the mere mention of stopping spending invokes “hate speech” outcries by those who lust for more spending.
Today thousands of babies are going to die, babies late in their term. Seven, eight and even nine-month old babies in the womb will be murdered and we have leaders who have said that if those babies survive the abortion, since the intent was for them to die, then it should be okay for the baby to die outside the womb. “THOU SHALL NOT KILL.”
Right in my home town, in the “Bible belt” Our local schools have received two recent violent threats that have resulted in every parent getting a phone notification that we are going to be sending our kids to buildings that are under surveillance for possible mass violence. But you know what? There has been no call to prayer, no area wide prayer vigils, no great awakening to the times at hand. Why?
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables” (2 Timothy 4:3).
Apostasy has filled the churches and the mega ministries are instructing their followers to live for your, “best life now.” Big names with big followings are telling everyone they are “okay” when they are “not okay.”
“This is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies says to his people: “Do not listen to these prophets when they prophesy to you, filling you with futile hopes. They are making up everything they say. They do not speak for the Lord! They keep saying to those who despise my word, ‘Don’t worry! The Lord says you will have peace!’
And to those who stubbornly follow their own desires, they say, ‘No harm will come your way!’ “Have any of these prophets been in the Lord’s presence to hear what he is really saying? Has even one of them cared enough to listen? Look! The Lord’s anger bursts out like a storm, a whirlwind that swirls down on the heads of the wicked.
The anger of the Lord will not diminish until it has finished all he has planned. In the days to come you will understand all this very clearly. “I have not sent these prophets, yet they run around claiming to speak for me. I have given them no message, yet they go on prophesying. If they had stood before me and listened to me, they would have spoken my words, and they would have turned my people from their evil ways and deeds.”
I have found it to be true that “as it was in the days of Noah” so shall it be. Noah being divinely warned prepared an ark for the saving of his house hold and yet Noah was a preacher of righteousness warning everyone to listen, but after 100 years of warning, Noah surely had to feel like the biggest failure when only seven people heeded the warnings and got on the ark.
Are we being like Noah and preparing for what’s coming? Are we sincerely “watching and praying” or by our distracted living, are we scoffing? What is our heart crying for?
In Revelation 22 we read that the Spirit and the Bride cry, “Come quickly Jesus.”
If that isn’t your heart’s cry in this hour, then don’t you have to ask why?
Is your heart scoffing? Is it like the heart of the evil servant in Luke 12 saying, “My Master is delaying His Coming?” Or is it stoked with a passion to be where Jesus is? Jesus is coming for a Bride passionate for the Bridegroom!
Be honest with yourself right now. Is your heart passionately watching for Jesus? I mean are you consumed with “this life” and more concerned with the trends of Hollywood glitz and glamour or with what’s trending at Lowe’s and on Wall Street? Or are you longing for the fulfillment of the promise, “I will come again and receive you unto myself?” Are you looking for a city who’s Builder and Maker is the Lord?”
As time draws short and it is drawing short, we need to stop everything we are doing and get our priorities in order.
I find it ironic that two times in Scripture we read of God getting ready to pour out wrath on sinful man and in both instances, “as it was in the days of Noah” and “as it was in the days of Lot” God saved singular families. That highlights our most urgent mission, right in our own homes.
It so very much a time now to “make ready.”
“But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers” (1 Peter 4:7).
PLEASE TAKE SHELTER
Two thousand years ago Almighty God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son. Jesus came, born of a virgin, performed many miracles, healed the sick, raised the dead and with the joy set before Him, went to the cross and was crucified, taking upon Himself the sins of the whole world. Those sins laid upon the life of Jesus provoked the Wrath of Almighty God to the point that He gladly crushed His only begotten Son for our sake.
For those who look upon that event as the greatest gift of all time and whose hearts have been pierced knowing that when Jesus took those nails and died that death, He was doing that for YOU — and you realize there is nothing good in you and that your only hope and trust is in Jesus Christ and the cross, GREAT NEWS, you have been redeemed and made new. You are promised “eternal life” from the One whose promises are, “Yes and Amen,” and you are not appointed unto wrath…EVER AGAIN.
But to those who have rejected that free gift, who strive in this world to, “what feels good do it,” those “who live for now,” who are trusting in their own wisdom and own ways, those who believe that this is “just another day in paradise,” I beg you to stop and think because the author of Hebrews in chapter 10 tells us:
“For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries” (Hebrews 10:26-27).
And what comes with that?
The Day of the Lord, a time unless God shortens the days, “no flesh will survive.” A time that we read in Revelation 6 that mankind will cry for the rocks to fall upon them and kill them in order to hide them from the wrath of God.
Storm clouds are building up and they are shouting to us all.
“And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring” (Luke 21:11, 25).
If this was a tornado ripe stormy night you would be watching the weather channel and studying the radar very closely, if you were smart! Biblically speaking, this is a VERY stormy time and Isaiah 17:1 should be on your radar as well as Isaiah 19, Psalm 83 and Luke 21:34-36. Reading our Bibles and praying urgently would be like being in the safest of storm shelters with a high-powered flashlight. Someone telling you it’s okay to watch TV from your sofa while the storm is bearing down would be an apostate who had no clue!
In the coming days there are going to be things happening based on the authority of God’s Word that are going to be so scary that “men’s hearts will fail them for fear.” In light of the tremendous purchases in anxiety medicines, I think its safe to say that things like what are listed below have already gotten many people’s attention.
An estimated 1100 people hurt from debris of meteorite in Russia was “Breaking News.”
North Korea releases video of desired destruction to American cities while playing, “We Are the World.”
Fema Camps have been erected in ten US districts and it’s now mainstream news.
The US government seeks to disarm citizens while at the same time it purchases ammo for government institutions such as the Social Security Administration.
What does history record happens to societies when their leaders pursue gun control?
The US government sends 1.5 billion of the 46 cents of every dollar they are borrowing to the Muslim Brother Hood led Egypt and at the same time they are sending tanks and F-16 fighter jets.
Record government gold purchases are taking place here and across the globe.
UN troops are practicing urban war games in American cities and some US troops are torn and vexed in their allegiance.
Islam is ascending with such success that, Sharia Law, is establishing beachheads in major US cities, i.e. Dearborn, Michigan.
Do you realize who CAIR is? Do you know whom the new CIA director, John Brennan, pledges his allegiance to?
The anger of the Lord is being kindled because of such things.
“The nations that forget God shall be turned into HELL. God did not create this place to be turned into this time where everyone is shouting, “TURN OFF THE LIGHTS.”
Why is that cry so prevalent? “They love the darkness and hate the light because their deeds are evil.”
All hell is about to break lose and if you aren’t hidden in Christ you are a sitting duck. Satan himself has you in his sights and his lust is your damnation. His very nature is to steal, kill and to destroy. Nuclear arsenals have been built for his evil desires and use him he will. And he will have help.
“When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come and see.” Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword” (Revelation 6:3-4).
Is it your desire to be a “survivor” and prep for such a time by buying up guns, ammo, gold, silver and food insurance? Do you think you are prepared to live through such a time?
Do you not believe this warning to be true?
It is my conviction that in the coming days there will be no such thing as atheism anymore, because God is going to make Himself known. You will either soften your heart and run toward God or harden your heart and run from God. Either way, if your hearts desire right now is not alive with a longing to be where Jesus is then you need to prepare to live through a time the most tremendous grief and anguish this world has never known.
It is my prayer though that as you have been reading this message, that The Holy Spirit has been at work convincing you of the desperate time you are facing and you are even now asking if there is any hope or “What I must do to be saved?”
What must you do?
Realize you exist because you were created by: God. Your Creator gave you life and His laws to live by, but you have broken His laws and right now stand before your Creator GUILTY as a “law breaker” and deserve to die, and dying you are with each beat of your heart. You are dying but God in His goodness and mercy didn’t make you to do so. He wants you to live eternally and because of this very fact, just over 2,000 years ago He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ to take your place.
Because of you and for you, He willingly allowed mankind to crucify Him on a cross for your sins and my sins. He then promised to prove that He is God and would rise from the grave and three days later He did that very thing and today an empty tomb shouts to the whole world, “He is alive!” In order for you to be saved from the wrath to come you must ask forgiveness and repent:
“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:9).
If you have done this, If you have had your eyes opened to now hate what you used to love, if you now know that Jesus is the Savior of the world and even now your Savior, you will have passed from death to life and have a Jesus, the “Blessed Hope.”
“We shall not all sleep but be changed, in the twinkling of an eye.”
Dear Father, it is my prayer that everyone who reads this will be so awakened to cry:
“Even so Lord Jesus, come quickly.”
