Do You See What I See?
The signs keep on coming…
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
(Matthew 24:4-8 KJV)
This year, in the NY/NJ metro area, we’ve experienced an earthquake, a category 1 hurricane, rampant flooding, and now a snowstorm that has led to power loss for many.
And the year’s not finished yet.
God’s people need to stir and awaken themselves, because now is not the time to be sleeping on the job. We are entirely too comfortable doing the same old things we have been doing for years.
Things are about to get a lot harder. There are rumblings all around, and signs in the weather and in nature all across the globe.
It has been an unprecedented year of activity on many fronts, but too many of us have been lulled into a false sense of security because we’ve been hearing the same things about the Second Coming for generations.
Look closely, because I think that things are not as they have been.
Let no man deceive you. There is more to go, but we need to be ready.
Remember that it is Jesus that makes the analogy to labor pains – the frequency and intensity of these events *will* continue to increase.
Let us redeem the time, for now is our salvation nearer than when we first believed.
