Habakkuk 2:1-3 “I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.”
I had to re-read this passage of Scripture, not once but 3 times! Considering all the Prophecies that are coming true today all across the Globe, I was dumbstruck so to speak.
How Prophetic is that?
Please understand; I have recently had eye surgery. I first had cataract surgery for my left eye; boy was it getting bad! Anyways, my left eye was doing better thereafter; but about 4 months ago, my left eye did something strange. If I were to look at anything straight and level, I would see a Blip, or better—a Sine wave. Little did I know, that was not so strange for the Ophthalmologist; I had a membrane that developed on the back of my Retina. So I was scheduled for left eye surgery once again, an “Epi-Retinal Membrane Peel.” It’s not as bad as it sounds; yet if left untreated, I could lose vision in my left eye.
I had never taken my vision for granted, yet there were things that I had not counted on taking place, putting my vision in jeopardy. Please understand; as an American Indian, we should have great vision. At 18, I could count the hairs on a flea’s butt at 5,000 meters. HA HA! Now that I am old, my vision is more critical in my Life. I thank the Lord for HIS Wisdom and HIS Hand of Healing! It will be a little while before my vision returns to full, but I am again so very Thankful to the Lord.
I would like to point out that the Holy Word of God is full of Passages that speak of vision, seeing this or that; vision is so important. A great deal of Eschatology centers around being able to “See.”
We often read about being ‘the Watchers on the Wall.’ So, as you see, vision is critical and it is not always the vision with just our eyes, but with our hearts as well – Israel as a Globally recognized nation; the unrest in the Middle East during the Last Days; Jerusalem returned to the Jews; etc., – best of all, being able to read the Word of God and learning to understand it, the Prophecies that have already taken place and those still to come.
And what about sharing the Word of God? Does this not require that one of you is able to Read? As I have been saying, vision is critical in the Word of God; yet how much of our daily lives do we take for granted, like vision or hearing?
This is not to say one must be able to read; one can hear the Word of God even though they cannot see. The mind that is set on the Lord will have eyes that are able to see and know the Truth. One that does not see with eyes is able to see the truth found in God’s Holy Word to us. I am so happy to be able to see better and better as each day passes, and yet I know my Heart is able to see all that my eyes are not able to see – and that is the Wisdom of my Lord.
How odd is it that there are so many in the world that are not able to see what is right in front of their faces?
The Word tells us that the Majority of the world walks that Highway to destruction; they do so willingly! How odd again that they “Choose that route” rather than give their hearts and lives to Jesus Christ?! Yet, if you ask most people, they will tell you, “Oh yes, I believe in God!” My usual reply is, “The Devil believes in Jesus Christ too.” The problem comes when you see the surprise on their faces. That is the moment that you know they have never known Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior! So then the question is, what do we do about that?
It is no surprise to anyone that these people must first HEAR the Truth that gives the Holy Spirit the opportunity to Convict that Individual of their Sin. People already know about their own Sin. The Problem is how to turn to Jesus Christ for HIS Blood to cover their Sin. There is NO other way to the Father!
As I have said before, these people need to see the Broad Highway they are walking on; it leads to Eternal Destruction, sort of like watching Zombies shuffle along. We first must awaken them from their slumber to see what all is going on around them and to let them know just how short the time is! Once they are awake, then we must offer them the knowledge that we possess about Salvation through Jesus Christ. After that, we are done; everything is in the capable hands of our Lord Jesus Christ.
One of the problems with Humans is that we continually have that “Hope” factor with us as we live. The next problem is that in Hell and the Lake of Fire…there is NO HOPE. That aspect that we have lived with all our lives is removed. Once in Hell, there is no way to do anything over again. If nothing else is able to scare you, that should be the ultimate one! Imagine for a moment…NO HOPE. It makes my mind scream…to say the least! This brings me to a point about the deceivers in the Pulpits…can you imagine where they will be? Can you imagine what this world will be like AFTER the Holy Spirit is removed?!
Matthew 11:28-30 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
The answer has always been there in Black and White for anyone to read or hear. Oddly enough, in Revelation it says: Revelation 3:22 “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.”
And how long has the Holy Word of God been around? For at least 4,500 years! You would think more people would know what is in the Word of God and would know the absolute Truth! In this we now know, those that perish have chosen not to accept the Word of God and will not accept the Gift of Salvation through Jesus Christ! How sad is it that so many will die forever, tormented in the knowledge that they had a chance to accept Jesus Christ. They had as much of an opportunity as you or I!
Where is your Home? Please do not tell me; instead know it in your Heart and then go out and tell others! If nothing else, know that Jesus Christ…KNOWS your Heart and HE knows where your home truly is.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.“
