We are living in Prophetic Times
Isaiah 28:22 -
Now therefore be ye not mockers [talk arrogantly], lest your bands [yoke] be made strong: for I have heard from the Lord GOD of hosts a consumption [termination / destruction], even determined upon the whole earth.
About a year ago (10-02-10) I had sent a mail warning about the turmoil going to happen in the Middle-east specially with the Arabs and again about 20 days back (06-02-11) this same message was repeated with further details as to what extend and within what period this will accomplish, I received nasty mails from Muslim evangelist / followers and even Christians (secular mined). The last mail sent to me even had historical study to show me that the scriptures I quoted were already fulfilled and I was not talking sense.
If I too had to study it with my own wisdom I too would have responded like them, but since I knew it was a message from the Lord I boldly send it and within a short time of my mail things manifested in the Middle-East.
The same was with my mail on food becoming very expensive, sicknesses, earthquakes (including volcanoes) etc. stating the stages before the main destructions (01-07-10).
Today's message is also on similar lines but not to the heathens (people of other beliefs) but to our so called secular mined Christians (including Catholics).
The days we are living in most people think are the end days and thus are losing a lot. The days we are living in are start of a very important period a long before the end days. In the Bible a lot is written about this era by many of the Prophets. These are the times when the limit which the Lord has set for the vanity of man has almost reached and thus called the Day of the Lord's revenge. The Lord is now starting to act on things He spoke about but refrained in His mercy. But now that His abundant grace is available and His Spirit is being poured out more and more, He expects change in us.
The Lord is not expecting us to be a perfect Christian, for no man alone can be like Christ but in the end the collective balance sheets of all His sheep will be like Him. This we will understand when we understand why Paul in his early letters wrote about working for our salvation with fear and trembling and in his last letter before he was killed (2nd letter to Timothy) he speaks with confidence as if he had already got a confirmed ticket in hand.
All that the Lord is asking of us as in today's message is that we do not open our mouths and speak against His Word for He will harden our hearts even further by increasing the yoke of bondages. In the days ahead we are going to see destructions at magnitudes ever imagined and yet through these destructions those who really hold unto the Lord will pass through without even hurting their feet to a stone. We need to open our hearts and minds unto His Word and even if we do not understand let us not reject it but ask the Spirit of the Lord to reveal it unto us.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, You love us very dearly, but as our Father You do want to see us eternally perish so You try to discipline us by chastising us. You are gentle and would not do to your people more than what they can take. Your grace is abundant on us and your Spirit is poured more and more on us. Lord we pray that our hearts are not hardened and we keep a hold on our tongue and show our faithlessness inside.
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[ Reference Scripture ]
1 Corinthians 2:1-5
1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.
2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.
4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of manís wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
2 Timothy 4:7-8
7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man lead you astray.
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am the Christ; and shall lead many astray.
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that ye be not troubled: for these things must needs come to pass; but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there shall be famines and earthquakes in divers places.
8 But all these things are the beginning of travail.
9 Then shall they deliver you up unto tribulation, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all the nations for my name's sake.
10 And then shall many stumble, and shall deliver up one another, and shall hate one another.
11 And many false prophets shall arise, and shall lead many astray.
12 And because iniquity shall be multiplied, the love of the many shall wax cold.
13 But he that endureth to the end, the same shall be saved.
