"Are you preparing for what is ahead, or are you thinking that what you see around you are just natural happenings? Do not listen to those who explain away by natural means what is shaking your world. In their foolishness, they do not know truth. Your world is reeling and you, My children, had better take notice. Intense weather patterns are My weather patterns. Upheavals that are increasing in intensity are the fulfillment of My plan. Wars and rumors of wars are just as foretold and on schedule. When are you going to really take notice of what you are experiencing in your lifetime and act accordingly?
"Stop being lulled to sleep by your ability to survive. Stop relying on those who say that they can help. Stop reasoning away what you are seeing with your eyes. These are My closing seasons and I am warning those who will listen. You have much to do for Me when the knowledgeable, the arrogant, and the powerful are cowering in fear.
"Prepare your heart for a time when there are no answers and no places of safety. What you are seeing is just a prelude of things to come. My judgment is at the door of your world. Either become part of My answers when the foolish have none, or be set aside to become part of the angry, drooling masses when I explain My sovereignty even more clearly. Stop complaining about your training and begin learning. Time is short. It's time for you to wise up!"
Psalm 46:10 NIV
"Be still, and know that I am God..."
Proverbs 29:1 AMP
He who, being often reproved, hardens his neck shall suddenly be destroyed - and that without remedy.
Isaiah 48:3 NIV
"I foretold the former things long ago, my mouth announced them and I made them known; then suddenly I acted, and they came to pass."
Matthew 11:12 NIV
"From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it."
When did "business as usual" become a biblical way of acting? When did the Lord ever tell us to become complacent? When was giving up because things are rough ever an example of the heart of Jesus?
You and I are God's children, bought with the very expensive blood of Jesus. We have been designed for His use and brought up for such a time as this. Our training is purposeful. Our direction is clear. Our hearts are being made ready. Praise our Lord God, Who is faithful to His Word!
What is Your desire, Lord?
