The end times and the Day of the Lord.

How far are we from it? To most of us Christians it looks nearer than ever. Although no one knows the date or time (Matthew 27:44; Matthew 25:13; Mark 13:32-37), Jesus tells us what we will see, before His return. (Matthew 24:27-31; Mark 13:24-27; Luke 21:25-28) Religions are already uniting and praying in the same churches. Some false prophets say it’s okay. It doesn’t matter what you believe, you will go to heaven. We do not all have the same God. He has given us much time to obey Him. You can have no other gods before Him, if so, He will send you to hell. Because He never knew you. You did not believe the word shared by Christians, pastors, and teachers. You never looked deeply inside yourself. You lived your life in the darkness of your sins and did not want to come to the light, Jesus, for then your sins would be revealed.

He has chosen those of us to know the truth through His word, the Bible. Really search your heart, think about it. Have you ever thought, God is all-knowing, and all-seeing? Your conscience, your mind tells you, yes there is one God, an Almighty, Powerful, and forgiving God. Not one of us was born without sin. We are transformed by His Holy Spirit and we come to know the truth from hearing and reading His word. There is one mediator, Jesus Christ, (1 Timothy 2:5-7) between us and God. No one on this earth can forgive your sins but Him. He is alive. He rose from the dead. You could be one His children and not know yet. To be transformed you must repent, God knows all man’s hearts. You can’t fool him. He makes a broken heart call out to Him. He is already there. Whoever calls upon His name, He will answer. He enables us to do so. Sad, to say some people will never turn to Him. They will never admit they are sinners. That Jesus is the only way to heaven. That you must repent your sins and ask for forgiveness. You must believe without seeing. Jesus said to Thomas who doubted.”Thomas, because you have seen Me you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believed.” (John 20:26-29). We are blessed to have His words to lead us and give us joy and peace, and salvation guaranteed (Heaven). His blood shed on the cross was for all who will believe. We are in fellowship will other Christians so we can support each other in our trials.

The time will come called the tribulation and then the Great tribulation. This seven years when the Holy Spirit will be removed from the world. The church of believers, those believing before that will be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye to be with Christ forever. (1 Corinthians 16:50-58)

If the world hates you, you know it hated Me before it hated you. (John 15:18-26) So how many pastors, preachers, false prophets are there? Jesus’s own words tells us. (Matthew 7-15; Matthew 24:23-26; 1 John 4:1,) Jude is all about false prophets and is the second to last book in the bible. You had a chance to read it too. It is very short. 

So if you are here after the annoying Christians are gone, things will not get better. Be prepared for the most terrible signs and disasters. Things you have never seen before. Many will be saved during that time still but, what a suffering. You may have to die, for the Lord. Or choose the final abomination, satan himself, the beast, dragon, prince of the air. He is the last antichrist. God will blind most and they will follow and worship him and take his mark on their hand or forehead. (Revelation 13:16-18; Revelation 14:11) The Jews, one-third of them will survive and preach to all people left on the earth. (Zechariah 13:7-9; Revelation 1:7; Revelation 7:1-8). They are God’s chosen people. Whoever comes against them will perish. Also two witness will preach and the people left will celebrate when they are killed. (Revelation 11:1-14) Are we lining up to that time now? Soon Israel will have the whole world against them. The Lord will return a second time and they will believe He is the Messiah.

So do you love Jesus, God, are you in Christ? If not you better find out what that means. Turn to Him, not away. No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. (Matthew 6:24) Has your choice already been made or are you now awake to seek and find the truth?

The Day of the LORD (Zechariah 14:1-21)

Asking for prayer today.

I had a very tough day yesterday and last night with P.T.S.D. and anxiety. Today I feel it but, I am with the Lord working through it. Everyone tells me I need a tougher skin. I am trying.

I am feeling like quitting my job. The Lord knows I want to work. I feel I am having issues with another employee. Maybe it’s because I am a Christian and he feels the Spirit of the Lord around him. I can’t witness of course, not allowed to speak of Christianity. I have made mistakes since I have been there, nothing not fixable.

I just want to work and not have issues with others..This is miniscule compared to what is going on in the world

Lord take away this stressfulness today. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ!

Your eternity is already determined.

I was very afraid to keep trying to work because of my illnesses. I am a very heart on my sleeve person. I always have been. We can’t say Merry Christmas. We can say Happy Holidays. We can’t say have a blessed day. We can say have a nice day. I have caught myself saying have a blessed day and the people I said it to, were fine with it. My Lord, my soul feels poured out to you. I feel sad that so many people are lead to destruction and don’t have any concept of where they are headed. They think, I am young. I have lots of years to live. Some people do have long lives and some can die very young. One day you are alive and the next you are gone. Gone where? It isn’t to no afterlife, because there are two, eternal joy and eternal suffering. One with the deceiver and the unbelievers. The other is with Christ the King, God the Father and Holy Spirit. No longer will we witness about Jesus because all will know Him and all will bow to Him.

We are seeing  the world tragedies growing worse and worse. Unbelievable things occurring never before to the likes of what we have seen in our lives. I think of lost members of families, and the help they are waiting for, and deaths, and the after effects, disease, water contamination, no food. This is happening over and over, everywhere. People still deny that. It is prophesy that it will be unbearable before He comes back, if you live through those times. He will come in the clouds and His feet will land on the Mt of Olives in Israel. This same Jesus, who ascended will come back to where He left His apostles. (Acts 1:9-12) When we see the disasters around the world, in the Philippines, in Syria, Egypt, and anywhere you almost can think of. They are becoming more frequent.

I have little to complain about. My uncle passed this week. I did have opportunity to pray and witness with him provided by My Lord..three different times. My Christian brother (earthly brother) is awaiting diagnosis of what caused his chronic pancreatitis, and entropy of his two organs.

We had a young child from our church pass away this week. He had cerebral palsy and was to be ten next week. Our Pastor spoke about when David’s son died and how he grieved before. When the child was dead he changed his clothes and ate and stopped grieving. He told his servants, that he grieved because the Lord may have let the child live. Then he said, if I continue is that going to bring him back. David said he will go where he is someday and see him again. That was important to hear today. The funeral home was full. The family was grieving but, in their sharing of memories of him there was joy. He could not talk, but his mom said once he said Hi when she came in his room. She asked him what he said and he said it again. He loved taking wind rides. Going fast in a car with all the windows down on bumpy roads. I didn’t know him, but really I did through the pictures and what the family shared. So we know that the Lord takes the little children home to him. We must become like little children to enter the kingdom of God. We must have that spiritual transformation that lasts eternally. People don’t like the words saved or born again. They are taught, changing your walk or path, your mind. Others have told me they were saved when they were baptized as a baby. We can do nothing of ourselves, only God. Our Lord said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is “born again” he cannot see the kingdom of God. (John, 3:3) He said, “Do not marvel that I said to you, You must be born again. The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” (John 3:7-8 ) Wherever we are in this life, in the valley of trials or over the mountains. We go in perseverance. We know our eternal destination. I think of my uncle and the opportunities the Lord gave me to witness to him. I will not know until heaven if God chose him. When we know someone is a Christian, born again and being sanctified, we see the change in heart and soul. They just don’t go to church on Sunday and live sinning the rest of the week, forgetting God. We live everyday as if Jesus were coming today. We wait, we watch, we pray, we study, we go on doing what He has us do until He comes again. Don’t be an unbeliever who has all his treasure here. Store up your treasures in heaven, not on earth where they will perish. You can’t take it with you to hell. We have what we need here, because the Lord sees we do, as He promises. Be faithful, be fruitful, be full of love for your neighbor. If you don’t love, you have not the love of God within you. Be that shining light even if you can’t say have a blessed day, everyday.

My family,  will no longer be reading my blog. That’s okay with me. I feel the Lord has given them everything they need to know Him through me and others. Of course, I am sad. I did get the e-mail I had expected. I read a bit and deleted it. Why should I hear the same thing over of how I left, deserted? The Lord knew what He had planned for me. He saved me and He loves me, and I am one of His children. Shall I fear what my family thinks? No, I shall fear My Lord,  My God! I shall give thanks for our Lord, Jesus Christ, God incarnate, for taking all our sins on the cross. We are forgiven, as we forgive those that have hurt us and we have hurt them back.

We say Have A Blessed Day! And walk in the footsteps with the Lord, Jesus Christ unto eternal life…

This is long and needed watching http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HL6v8nzFiUk

We plant seeds and another waters them.

We all have family that we want to understand God’s free gift. Sadly it may never be. We are to take every opportunity to talk about Jesus. Then I realize most of the time I am talking to a wall. It breaks my heart to know that. I have known my husband and daughter have read my blog a long time. They have not been on it in a couple of weeks. I revealed to them I knew they have been reading it. I admitted I was teaching them about the Lord. I told my husband that he knows as much as he needs to believe the truth. They have been on my blog over seven hundred times since February 2012. He actually did not react angrily, which I did expect. He said he really didn’t care about the content. He just wanted to be sure I had not been raptured. My dad said that same thing to me one day when I was gone biking a very long time. I told my husband, believe me you will know when the rapture happens. People will be very happy to be rid of us annoying Christians. Anyway he said he will not read it again. I told him that is okay with me. He told me to go wild with the content that it is an intrusion on his part knowing that it’s totally private for all that share your belief. As usual my daughter does not talk to me unless she thanks me for something or says she is sorry her grandpa was sick or died or her Uncle Mark may also. He’s the boss and in control. I am oceans away and nine thousand miles from their hearts.

This is one excerpt from my last e-mail to him.

I have no wildness left in my flesh, but my heart and soul are alive and joyful that I know Jesus. He says whoever denies me, I will deny also. Every person will make that choice if they know it or not and will be held accountable. Another truth is God chooses who He wills and you can’t stop Him. If Nicole will belong to Him, or Chris or anyone else, yourself included, He chooses.

Why do I always feel guilty about this broken relationship? I know in my heart I could not have sustained my health under stress. I could have gone back and been right next door to God's eternal kingdom when it comes. I thought that thinking God must want me in the Middle East. That was before I was saved. Well that turned out not to be my destiny but, it is theirs at this time.

I did get a chance to pray with my Uncle again today. I reminded him about Jesus. I told him his time here was almost done. I explained as much as I could again about saving grace and for him to confess Jesus in his heart and He will confess him to the Father. I believe hearing is the last to go, but God only knows for sure.

The Lord told us there will be trials in life. I know with Him getting through them has been much easier now.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your
own understanding;
In all your ways
acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.
Proverbs 3:5
