I am so blessed that you have chosen to come into 'my rooms with the Lord', finding me, looking for and finding Him, 'in such times as these'. My prayer from March 29, 2020 continues for today.
Continuing from April 12, 2020 therefore, so then, we have all been 'fore-warned' through God's Word, the Entire Holy Bible - Genesis through Revelation, the 'record of God's History with the Mankind He Created'.
This is true today. Jesus is standing at the door knocking to come into peoples' hearts. Will you answer His call. [Revelation 3:20] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
What can those of us in the 21st Century consider from Scripture while, using the time He gives us - to examine the Scriptures and 'see the signs of the times in which we are living'? Should we not be heeding what the Holy Spirit enlightens our hearts to understand and do as He directs and instructs us? This is paramount to those of us who call ourselves, 'in Christ Jesus'.
We must be able to help others, giving them the reason for our 'calm' and 'peace' even in the midst of 'uncertainty', and such. We are to be, as it is written in 1 Peter 3:15, to wit:
'But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear...' audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Continuing in our series, because the Amorites finally filled up the measure of their sin, God brought Joshua and the children of Israel against them. God’s command was for the Israelites to “completely destroy them—the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites—as the Lord your God has commanded you” (Deuteronomy 20:17). The Amorites fought back, but God destroyed them before Israel and gave them the Amorites’ land (Joshua 24:8). The conquest of Canaan served the dual purpose of punishing the Amorites for their sin and giving the Israelites a land of their own. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
A similar fate as befell the unrepentant Amorites awaits those who rebel against God today and reject His Son, Jesus Christ. All of us are sinners from our birth (Romans 3:23), and we have been warned that judgment is coming.[Revelation 6-22]audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html There is no solution, 'out of Jesus Christ'.
Make no mistake! Judgment Day is promised, and, God will keep His promise. Among other places, Isaiah 55:10-11 provides ' …10 For just as rain and snow fall from heaven and do not return without watering the earth, making it bud and sprout, and providing seed to sow and food to eat, 11 so My word that proceeds from My mouth will not return to Me empty, but it will accomplish what I please, and it will prosper where I send it.'
Further, Jesus reminded us Matthew 24:35; Mark 13:31 Luke 21:33, 'Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.' Jesus is returning. Are You ready? audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
But until that time we have the chance to repent and be saved, to be living for God, and are - 'ready'. God in His love, mercy, and patience waits, withholding judgment to give us all a chance to believe and be reconciled to Him. “He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).
But remember, God has His time 'set'. We do not know the 'day nor the hour'. Matthew 24:33. Are you 'seeing the signs of the times'? [Matthew 24-25; Mark 13; Luke 21] Remember. In the days of Noah, they ignored the 'signs' and 'preaching' of Noah for 120 years, and then, the Flood came, when they least expected it, and, without 'warning'. [Genesis 6-9] Jesus said, it would be the same way, when He would be returning. [Matthew 24:37-43; and Lot, Genesis 19; Luke 17:28]
Jesus, who is God, does not lie. [Numbers 23:19] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
We dare not make the same mistake as the Amorites and others and spurn God’s grace. Jesus said, “Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to. Once the owner of the house gets up and closes the door, you will stand outside knocking and pleading, ‘Sir, open the door for us.’ But he will answer, ‘I don’t know you or where you come from.’ Then you will say, ‘We ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.’ But he will reply, ‘I don’t know you or where you come from. Away from me, all you evildoers!’” (Luke 13:24–27). audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
As was the case in Abraham’s day we know that God’s judgment is coming. [Genesis 18-19] Unlike Abraham, we don’t have a timeline to give us an idea of when that day will be, other than what is said in the Holy Scriptures. “For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night” (1 Thessalonians 5:2). Everyone will be doing business as usual, saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape” (1 Thessalonians 5:3).
All we know is that God’s judgment has not yet fallen, which means that God is patient and the sins of modern nations have not yet reached the full measure. [Matthew 24-25; Mark 13; Luke 21]
Make good use of this time of favor and blessing. Repent, trust in Christ, and be saved. “For he says, ‘In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.’ I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2). And, no one knows the exact day nor hour. [Matthew 24:36] But, are we seeing the time - 'nearing', even at the door? [Matthew 24:33]
Remember, 'choices'. We choose God, or, we choose eternal damnation. It really is that simple. What more can God do????? Humble yourself.
[Proverbs 3:34; Matthew 5:3; 1 Peter 5:5; James 4:6 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html]
Please do not be a 'scoffer'! [2 Peter 3:3; Jude 1:18]audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
You see many of such as 'scoffers' and the 'lawless' and 'rebellious' on and in the 'news' in all the countries of the 'world'. We are currently in the conclusion of the battle between 'scientific, rational man', vs 'those who see beyond mere facts', 'leaning not on their own understanding'; [Proverbs 3]; 'respecting' that there is - something afoot of a major magnitude and it is 'spiritual'. Like Adolf Hitler and many modernly, it is 'will worship'; people who will lie, lie, lie, until they get a host of beguiled souls to 'believe' the 'satanic lies', unto total destruction. Colossians 2:18, 'Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels,[demons], intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind..'
So, now is the time for each person on this planet to come to a final 'conclusion' about just what they do believe, and, are willing to 'die' for their belief'. [Romans 1-2] Each and everyone must know, their 'decision' on this most important and primary question will determine their future, eternally. The question is quite simple - 'What have you done about Jesus Christ?' Revelation 12:11 provides, 'And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.'
Where do YOU stand?
To better understand 'the times in which we are living', carefully study Matthew Chapters 24-25; Mark 13; Luke 21, and, the 'entire Book of the Revelation'. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
This concludes this 'little series'. I pray that over the next few days, you take the necessary time to carefully consider all posted, prayerfully. I do hope you are one of the ones He will gather at His return. Amen. Amen.
I leave you with this prayer, from Numbers 6:24-26 New International Version (NIV)
I pray audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
24 'The Lord bless you and keep you;
25 the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you;
26 the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.' Amen. Amen.
Our next post series shall start May 17, 2020, as the Lord wills. Thank you for returning. Amen. Amen.
Welcome to the 'Biblical Topical Blog' where we will posts on topics from A-Z. It will not be 'politically correct' - but, the posts shall be - 'AS IT IS WRITTEN' - GOD'S WORD. Enjoy!
