Words to Ponder - for discerning saints







When I consider time and eternity, I remember the profound words of Leonard Ravenhill:  "This life is a dressing room for eternity - THAT'S ALL IT IS ! " This places great importance on living life with a focus on eternal gain and not a worldly gain, as so many do in life. When we enter the doorway of eternity we will face heaven or hell and the clock of eternity will continue to deliver it's intensity ... with either choice. Life is the allotted time we are given to shape our eternity. Following the ways of the world will deliver it's wages in hell as will following Jesus the Christ deliver us into an eternity of heaven. As end times saints, we need to be clothed in the righteous of Jesus the Christ  in preparation for the eternity that He has planned for us. Anything else will be hell.






I only sound intelligent when there's a good script writer around and the best script writer I know is the Holy Spirit of Almighty God. Wait for His leading and make His words yours.





Obama's strategy during his 8-year administration has been to 'praise Muslims,' 'ignore Christians' and 'blame Jews.' He has torn the fabric of our society in the US and he has opened the doors of our nation for Muslims. He has set the stage for Daniel's 70th week, the 7-year Tribulation period. Obama may not be "the Anti-Christ" but he is "an Anti-Christ." Planet earth is a worse place after Obama but Almighty God has a place in eternity in the lake of fire for those who are against Him. It's past time for Christians to stand up and shine the light of hope ... our blessed hope in these darkening times. 





Before you were birthed into time you were in eternity past ... in the mind, thoughts and plans of Almighty God. When you are birthed back into eternity future your choices in time will determine your eternity future. Your eternity future will be either heaven or hell. Your life is the amount of time you are given to shape your eternity.





Faith only accepts complete victory!





The head of the church, Jesus the Christ, the Word, our Almighty God is the same "yesterday and today and forever," and the strength of the Church- age saints living in this end times generation is not in the past, present, or future, but found only in Jesus the Christ.





Man was made in the image of Almighty God giving us dominion over planet earth. At the fall, in the garden of Eden, Satan took our position and he became our accuser. Fallen man had no way of redemption but Almighty God made a way in birthing Himself of a woman. The creator who made man in His image was born of woman in time, becoming an acceptable sacrifice being fully man and fully God. We now look forward to the accuser being soon cast out of heaven to earth ... when we are birthed into the spiritual realm and in our spiritual bodies, at the Rapture of the church ... into our heavenly home in the presence of our Almighty God for 7 years. Then we will return to earth and once again have dominion over planet earth with our Lord and God, Jesus the Christ.






Revelation 12:7-9 says: "And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him." We might ponder why Satan is cast out at that point. The answer should excite every church-age saint today ... because Satan has just been made redundant as the accuser of the  brethren. Why ... because of the Rapture of the church ... the saints are in heaven. The Rapture ignites a cosmic war in the heavens that results in the commencement of Daniel's 70th week on earth.






When we change the term "life and death" to perhaps the more correct term "time and eternity" we get a larger picture. When we step from time we will inhabit eternity ... in either heaven or hell. There is nothing else and that is a sobering thought. The wise would do well in giving some time in consideration of eternity and even more time into shaping their eternity. The key to the door of heaven is Jesus the Christ. It's your eternity ... invest into it today and all your days. Eternity is a long time to be wrong and it's a long time with regret.






The unassailable reputation of our Holy God reveals an unmovable foundation that we can trust. An everlasting foundation of truth, strength and  sovereignty. A foundation that spans time and eternity to deliver the irrevocable promises of our loving Abba Father.




It matters little who the next president of the United States is ... the prophetic word of Almighty God will come to pass, it will unfold, in the exact same manner intended and at its exact appointed time. As end times saints our focus should be on who is leading us ... we already know who leads this world. 





The word of Almighty God is powerful and living ... the prophetic Word of Almighty God is time-locked to an appointed time. It is spoken in eternity past for a future appointment in time. The power of the prophetic Word of Almighty God lives throughout the generations until it is birthed at the precise moment intended. His Word has never failed ... and it never will. His timing is exact, it is precise, it is perfect. It is never before or after its appointed time. We as end-times saints live in a day and hour when we can not only read the ancient prophetic Word for our time ... but also see the living Word unlock, to reveal the might and power of our Abba Father as His prophetic Word births before our very eyes. We live in amazing times.






Manna from heaven falls into our lives to meet every need that we have in life, in serving the will of Almighty God. When we step from time into eternity we will never have any need ... every need and even every want will be found in our loving Abba Father and the eternity that He has prepared  for those who love Him.






In life we have so many choices that take us down so many paths ... resulting in so many differing futures for our life, depending on the choices we make. When we leave time and enter eternity we have no choices for the only two futures in eternity. Your choices where spent in time, determining your eternity in Heaven or Hell. Now don't you think you need to live life with an eternal focus ... eternity is a long time to be regretful.






Satan will soon come into his appointed time to wreak havoc on planet earth. During this time the powers of heaven above will come against the god of this world and bring his reign to a close, then peace will come at the destruction of the power of darkness  ... at the hand of the mighty "I AM," the creator of the universe, Jesus the Christ, the Savior of the world. Our Lord and our God. We were created to serve in this day and at this hour, in His strength, with His authority and in His name. Let us close this church age with the same spirited determination and tenaciousness used at its beginning.






I am one of those ministers of the Word who believes that the whole Bible and everything it contains is truth. The Word of Almighty God is living, it is powerful, it is penetrating ... it is our gift from Almighty God Himself. Jesus the Christ, the Word, is the ultimate gift from a loving God at a cost that is  immeasurable. The Word is more than a historical document, it's more than a manual for life ... Its truth will light the path of your life and enrich your eternity beyond your imagination with the creator of the universe. The Word needs to be foremost in our lives.






Church, one of the most important things to know in life is who you are in Jesus the Christ  ... another is to understand the times in which you live.






One thing that we will not find in heaven is a complaints department, for the Word of Almighty God tells us that, “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”






Faith is not something that goes against scientific evidence, it goes beyond it. Faith is not measured by how much of it we have, but by how much of it we use. Faith is a supernatural currency that we can spend in time ... that will impact time and eternity. So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. Get some and spend some ... all of your days.





Abba Father ..... thank you for being such an awesome heavenly Father. Words are inadequate to describe your protection, your provision, your counselling, your friendship ..... your deep love and eternal plan, that I may be called your child. Happy Father's Day Abba........





The Word of Almighty God is the food of faith. Men and woman of great faith have a huge appetite for the Word.






Those who are born once ... will die twice. Those who are born twice will die once. A day will come in this end-times generation when those who are born twice ... will not die at all. What a privilege and honor to be counted with those that will not taste death!






There are not many things that we can do in time ... that will last a "lifetime." The value of one soul saved in time will last an "eternity" and its worth is greater than anything else that we can do in life. Have an eternal focus as you live life and serve Almighty God in this end-time generation. Share the hope, this world's only hope, Jesus the Christ. It will impact time and eternity. 






It is impossible to comprehend the mysteries and wonders contained within eternity, as the Word of Almighty God says:- "Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him." If we contemplate how breathtaking the universe is and the awesomeness of planet earth ... as I ponder with much curiosity and expectation my only conclusion, in a word, is that when we step into eternity we will all be absolutely "gobsmacked."





  

The enormity of evil in these days has not yet reached its limits ... but when it does, planet earth will experience wickedness, atrocity, inhumanity, depravity, savagery, death and destruction on a level never before seen. All at the hand of the "god" of this world. Satan has objectives, strategies, and tactics for his appointed time. However, Almighty God's love for mankind has placed each and every one of us in this end-time generation to serve His will and counter the Satanic attacks in this day. Understanding the high calling you have and who you are in Jesus the Christ is so important, at the soon close of the church age. Almighty God has equipped His saints with every talent and strength needed for victory at a time such as this. Follow His lead with boldness, knowing that you are His perfect choice to impact time and eternity in this amazing generation. 






Biblical prophecy has the unique record of being 100% correct over any other source, so clearly future Bible prophecy generates much interest with an expectation of the same degree of accuracy from those who study it. This is a powerful authentication of the Word of Almighty God. Prophecy not only gives credibility to the Word but it also gives us a confidence that every promise is truth. Bible prophecy and in particular, eschatology, was what led me to salvation through Jesus the Christ ... the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy. Of course, Bible prophecy gives us an awareness, appreciation, and hunger to understand the prophetic times in which we live in this end-times generation, as well as a realization of the nearness of the Rapture of the church. Prophecy is a powerful resource for all of us.





Planet earth is going to become a very scary place for those who place their hope in the governments and leaders of this world. So little they understand about the day in which we live or the prophetic words spoken over this generation and time. They do not see the urgent need to be reconciled to their Creator but would rather follow the ways of the god of this world. The door of hope will soon close, then planet earth will enter a seven-year time of tribulation never before seen on earth nor ever will be again. Saints, time is short ...  "He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. Rev 3:22." This is what we need to do and act upon, to impact the closing chapter of the church age. The finish line is in sight and we need to draw on the supernatural power, strength and leading we have available in the Holy Spirit of Almighty God. 




How important is it to know who we are in Jesus the Christ ... the position as well as the authority we have as heaven's ambassadors. The royal mandate given is illuminated for us in Proverbs 13:17 ... "A wicked messenger falleth into mischief: but a faithful ambassador is health." As faithful ambassadors of Jesus the Christ in this end-times generation, we should be bringing a message of spiritual health to this fallen world. We need to shine the light of truth at this time of darkness and deception. We have a message of hope for a people that have no hope. We have a message of love, victory and salvation from a world of death and destruction. We have the message of eternal joy and happiness, in Jesus the Christ. Share this world's only hope today, and all your days.





I read a quote yesterday that said:-

"If an egg is broken by an outside force ... life ends. If broken by an inside force ... life begins. Great things always begin from inside." 

Just imagine the impact on time and eternity if we allow the force, or should I say power, of the Holy Spirit inside us, to direct every part of our lives.





Most who study Bible prophecy and in particular eschatology would agree that the rapture of the church can be found in Revelation 4:1. What most do not consider is the penultimate verse to the rapture of the church in the book of Revelation ... it's Revelation 3:22. That being the case, Revelation 3:22 is not only the  penultimate Scripture to the rapture of the church, but it's also the last Scripture for the church age and in fact an instruction to the church age saints. This places much importance on Revelation 3:22 for us as end times saints.






If faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God ... then logic would determine that the shield of faith is the Word of God. If the power behind the Word is the Holy Spirit of God and the Spirit is associated with water ... then we might ponder the watery shield of faith, that quenches the fiery darts of the wicked as the power of the Word, the Holy Spirit. If that be true .. how much more should we drench ourselves in the Word of Almighty God.





As end-times saints we are Almighty God's choice in making a profound impact at the close of the church age. The baton has been passed to us, down throughout every church age generation from the time of the apostle Paul. We are all heaven's ambassadors, each equipped with talents endowed from the creator of the universe. Following the led of the Holy Spirit in these end times will impact time and eternity. 




Abba Father, thank you for the love, trust and faith you have in each one of us, as your end times saints, at the soon close of the church age. Direct us, equip us, and enable us, that we might impact time and eternity as we serve your will in your strength ... in the name above all other names, Jesus the Christ, as we release our faith, trust and hope in your perfect ways. Amen.



The ignoble efforts that evil exerts against Christians in this end time generation has its origins in Satan as part of his preparation to overtake planet earth. Now, so many around this planet ignorantly believe that intimidation and persecution will make Christians stop sharing the truth and go into hiding. The fact of the matter is that a day is fast approaching when the church-age saints will disappear off the face of this earth ... but until that day we have our great commission as church-age saints. Don't forget to also leave something behind for the left behind as part of your preparation to inform the tribulation saints of truth in a time of great deception. This world only has one hope ... Jesus the Christ.



I've done plenty of wrong in my life, as have we all. Almighty God's gifts and calling are irrevocable. So that means that what God spoke into my life and your life, before the foundation of time, still stands today. We can place our trust on every promise found in the Word of Almighty God and stand on its truth, and claim it, as we serve Him in the power and authority we have in Jesus the Christ. How awesome is our Abba Father and His love for each one of us. 





We, who know the living God, have an urgent requirement to understand the times we live in. The prophetic Word of Almighty God tells us we live in perilous times. A time of great deception. Remember who you are in Christ and your assignment from heaven. Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. Reflect the light of truth in these darkening days and walk the path that not only leads you to eternal joy and happiness but also others will see the hope, Jesus the Christ, in you. 




If you could travel back in time to the moment when Jesus fell to His knees with the beam of a cross on His right shoulder ... through the bloodied, bruised, battered and swollen face, you would see the oceans of love in His eyes that fueled His determination to reach Calvary, fulfill prophecy, and pay the price of sin, for the redemption of mankind, in every generation. Jesus the Christ, my Lord, my Savior and my God.



The man of faith holds up empty hands and with his spiritual sight he sees the provision and greatness of his Almighty God, as he speaks his petitions, released in faith, expectation and thanks ... in the name above all names, Jesus the Christ. 



Saints, when you step into eternity and look upon the face of Jesus the Christ your focus will be on His eyes. They
will look like oceans of love and those oceans of love will overflow into your innermost being. They will fill you with joy immeasurable. What a wonderful way to start your eternity with Him. Share the blessed hope we have in Him that others would know and receive this world's only hope ... Jesus the Christ.



Satan is moving into place as the prophetic word reveals for these end times. Almighty God has His saints in place also. You where chosen before the foundation of time to serve in this generation. Allow the seed of courage, strength and boldness ... the power of the Holy Spirit in you, to impact these days in which we live. Our eternity and that of others is shaped in what we do (in Him) in time.



The all-powerful sword of the living God is able to cut through every defense our enemy can raise—down to the very division of bone and marrow. When wielded by a servant of God, nothing can withstand its ability to cut straight to the core of a matter and uncover the truth. As soldiers in God's army, it is our responsibility and duty to use His Word to discern the truth and then follow it. 



How little we see until our sight is adjusted, refocused and set on our creator, Lord and Savior ... our Almighty God. His divine council opens our eyes, our heart, our mind to gain an understanding that only our spirit can receive. We will find no peace in our own understanding but in Christ Jesus is found a peace that is sound and complete. A trust that turns our earthly unrest into heavenly joy.



I think most would understand the times we live in, a generation like no other in the history of mankind, on the edge of one age and the soon start of another. Firm commitment can be our only position as we serve Almighty God in allegiance, loyalty and attentiveness to the leading of His Holy Spirit in us. The prophetic message in these end times is three fold. "One" ... a warning of judgment to the nations. "Two" ... be an encourager, a message of hope to the body of Christ and "Three" ... last but certainly not least is to share the blessed hope we have in Jesus the Christ to all on planet earth.You were called by Almighty God ... for such a time. Stay strong !



The Word of God is full of accounts describing the power of prayer in various situations. The power of prayer has overcome enemies (
Psalm 6:9-10), conquered death (2 Kings 4:3-36), brought healing (James 5:14-15), and defeated demons (Mark 9:29). God, through prayer, opens eyes, changes hearts, heals wounds, and grants wisdom (James 1:5). The power of prayer should never be underestimated because it draws on the glory and might of the infinitely powerful God of the universe!



Saint's, what are we to do as end-times saints on the battlefields of these evil times. We have been hand-picked to serve the will of the Father, in the power of the Holy Spirit and with the authority and name of Jesus the Christ. Our focus, to bring others to the saving knowledge of Jesus the Christ. We are here as sowers to scatter good seed ... as ploughmen to break up the fallow ground ... as heralds publishing the truth of salvation. We are here as the "salt of the earth," to reflect the light and truth of Jesus the Christ, as a blessing to the world. Let us see that our life delivers this end.



The Bible tells us that Jesus was full of grace and truth ... Truth without grace is like surgery without anesthesia. Grace without truth is like a bottle with no medicine in it. Only grace and truth together can help anybody. The person that loves you the most is not the one that tells you what you want to hear ... It's the one that tells you what you need to hear. Saints ... be like Jesus, be full of grace and truth. Share the word of truth and hope with love and compassion and with the power of the Holy Spirit in you.



Saints, we now live in the “Drive-thru Generation,” where everything is quick and easy. We live in a generation that has cultivated an expectation of convenience. In doing so, some have been willing to sacrifice nutrition, relationships and even values because of this must-have-it-now need and instant society in which we live. Do not make your Almighty God a "Drive-thru God." Make the time to spend with Him. Build a close relationship with Him. Make Him part of every part of your life. You will take your relationship with Him into eternity. Make sure you know Him personally when you see Him face to face ... don't use Him as a God of convenience. He is our Abba Father and He longs to spend time with us.



We should be aware that lies wrapped up in verbal sugar are part of the deception of this day we live in. Shallow promises are common-place as we see the art of deceit, duplicity, fraud, underhandedness, cunning, craft, guilt, pretence and treachery being practiced with much skill. The word of truth warns of future perilous times ... the worst is yet to come.



As end times saints, it is Almighty God to whom and with whom we travel on our journey in time ... He shadows each step we take in time until our last ... then eternity we enter, and His glory we enjoy. Walk that path in His light.



The pages of His holy word is the path, the standard we follow on our journey from time to eternity. Believing in Jesus the Christ and His Death, Burial and Resurrection is the way of redemption ... His name is the royal chariot that takes our words to the throne of Almighty God in heaven. Jesus the Christ ... the name above all other names. Release your words covered in faith, and in His name. Use the authority you have as children of Almighty God ... It's powerful.



Let the love, grace and mercy of Almighty God be the joy of your day ... today and all your days. It will shape time and eternity.



Today we tend to skim, scan, and summarize things to save time ... missing out on the details of everyday life. Things that impact in life and eternity are sometimes found on the path less travelled. Take the time to seek wisdom and direction each morning as you set out on the path He sets before us. Our journey has it's purpose in the will of Almighty God. The path we walk is never walked alone ... and the fruit is abundant when the direction we walk has His eternal focus.



It appears people thought they were living normal lives during the time Noah lived, just before the Flood. They were oblivious to the impending disaster. Some four and a half thousand years later ... mankind is still oblivious to the impending disasters foretold for the end of this age.




Today I will seek the wisdom, favor and peace of Almighty God in everything I do knowing that He alone knows my future. I will not allow Satan to steal my joy, as my joy comes from the Lord. Today I will delight in the ways of the Lord and not the ways of this end-times generation. Today I will be truly thankful for my richest blessings ... the salvation and grace of Almighty God.




Almighty God, Abba Father. You know our heart and that our desire is to be close to you. Correct us when we wander from the path that you would have us walk. May all our days be shaped with your living word of truth, your grace and your favor. May the path we walk serve your will for the glory of your kingdom to come in this end times generation. In the name above all other names, Jesus the Christ, we ask. Amen and amen.



It will take an eternity to experience the things that Almighty God has prepared for those who love Him. What a great privilege we have as Christians. What an eternal hope we have in Jesus the Christ. The love of the Father, the sacrifice of His Son and the gift of His Spirit is all we need for time and eternity. It's the ultimate gift ... for those that receive it.



Time and Eternity are separated by a doorway called death. Your body is finite but your spirit is eternal. That being the case ... we need to ensure that we make the right choices in life for our eternity. That right choice is Jesus the Christ. He is the ONLY door into heaven. The door to hell is the god of this world, Satan. Who we follow in life is our choice, however, it is also our doorway into eternity. Think about it ... eternity is a long time to be wrong.



My salvation through Jesus the Christ, is the product of receiving Almighty God's love, grace and mercy. Who I am and who Almighty God is preparing me to be is a process. It requires surrender daily, by walking in His footsteps, His will and His ways. By being led by the Holy Spirit of Almighty God and not the things of this world. Not easy...but eternally rewarding.




The time has come when we see churches entertaining the goats when they should be feeding the sheep. We live in perilous times with great deception. We need to feed on the spiritual nourishment only found in the Word of Almighty God, the living word, the word of truth. ... and not a form of godliness that is part of these end times. We need the real thing ... the Godliness of Jesus the Christ in our lives.




As end-times saints, we are always on the anvil of life; by trials, afflictions and troubles the hand of Almighty God can shape, mold and form us for the high calling He has for us now and in eternity. We can truly give thanks in all situations, as all thing work together for good. We are perfected in our trials.



When we understand that the essence of time and eternity is found within the pages of a work called "The Bible," we have a foundation and a resource of great worth. When we develop a relationship with the author of this word of truth, we have a treasure immeasurable for time and eternity.



Every word of Almighty God will be fulfilled at its appointed time. Unbelief is a poison that Satan uses to inject doubt into mankind ... Satan attempts to take away the light, power and hope found in the word of truth. NEVER make peace with evil. The word of Almighty God is the light that drives back darkness and evil ... It empowers mankind to return to a loving God who has a purpose, a destiny and an eternity for you, without measure. Stand on the living Word of the Almighty, stand on the promises of Almighty God. Put Satan under your feet and share the hope we have, only found in Jesus the Christ.



While most parents have a place of honor in the hearts of their children, there is another way to honor ... or should I say "bring honor" to our earthly parents. That is in the way we walk the life we have been given. We bring honor by our words and deeds in life. We give honor to our heavenly father, Almighty God, by walking the path that He set before us. Bring honor in all that you do ...



Being rich is not about how much we have ... it's about how much we give. It's about sharing what we have with those that don't have. It's about meeting a need for those in need. It's about sharing a word of encouragement, it's about sharing a meal, it's about giving a cold drink on a hot day. You have the blessings and favor of Almighty God ... every day. Be a blessing every day from the abundance we have in Jesus the Christ. Sometimes the giving of ourselves is a gift of more worth than money. Make sure that you are the light that shines in this end-times generation.



Many people have the understanding that the Old Testament was written BC (“before Christ”). This is correct to a point. It was written before the birth of Jesus the Christ. More correctly, nothing was before Christ. He is the creator of all things and that includes time itself. In the beginning He was there the Bible tells us in Genesis 1:1 ... I like to say, in the eternal past. He always was. In that eternal past, before the foundation of time He purposed you to live in one of the greatest generations in man's history. You are His choice to impact this end-times generation for the kingdom of heaven. You will shape eternity saints. Be bold and serve Him in His power and might. Be encouraged today and every day to walk in His will.



To misunderstand evil and its intent in this end-times generation opens the door to a level of deception, death and destruction never before seen on planet earth. Most do not understand the times in which we live ... or the only way of redemption ..... Jesus the Christ. Impact eternity by being a message of hope in these darkening end times, today and all your days.



Almighty God used Paul to touch the world, not only in his day, but in every church age generation. He used Ananias to touch and speak into Paul's life. You may speak a word into someone's life, who will touch the world in this end-time generation. The mouth of a righteous man / woman is a well of life. The words that we speak are Spirit and Life. We have power in our tongue to speak into situations and into lives. Let's use our God-given gifts and talents for the Glory of Almighty God.



Time Past has been spent, whether for profit or loss. Your remaining time can shape the wealth or poverty of your eternity, in your thoughts, words and deeds. You cannot redeem time past ... spend your future time wisely with an eternal focus.



Jesus the Christ is the ladder that reaches from planet earth to heaven. He is the only way to the Father. Place your trust, faith and hope in Him ... and no other.



We enter a sea of deception when we don't stand on our convictions. Live life boldly and speak without fear out of the convictions that are birthed in you, as a child of the most high Lord God. Our high calling sets us apart from this world's standards. Our standard is the word of truth, the word of Almighty God.




As we walk our lives in time ... we write our future in eternity. Not by how good or bad we are, but by who's footsteps we followed. Jesus the Christ is the way. 




Faith is what moves me into agreement with Almighty God. That's why without faith it's impossible to please Him. Release your faith into your thoughts, words and deeds today ... and expect, with the measure of faith you release.




We know that David faced and defeated a giant. He did not look at how big and powerful the giant was; he looked only at how much bigger his Almighty God was. "You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty." "The battle is the Lord's and he will give all of you into our hands" (1 Samuel 17:45, 47). When we face our own giants we need to know who we are in Christ. It is to stir up an awareness of our position in Jesus the Christ, and the incomparably great power that He has made available to us. We are saints living in this end-times generation. You have the power that created the universe living in you. Walk in that power and authority you have in Jesus the Christ. 




As we study Bible prophecy in relation to end times, it becomes evident that we are in fact living in the generation that the prophets of old wrote about when they pierced the boundaries of time to foretell impending doom. Prophecy has many purposes and levels but the ultimate message of prophecy is redemptive. The reason that Almighty God tells us the future is not so we will know when the stock market is going to crash or about the next war (although it does that also) ... but rather that He is an all-knowing, all-loving God that has a plan and a purpose for your life now and in eternity. That from the foundation of time He has had a love, destiny and a hope for the whole of man kind. That He has left no stone unturned, no cost withheld, that you might spend an eternity with Him. He has done it all. The choice is ours. That choice needs to be the spirit of prophecy ... Jesus the Christ.




For years past, many would know that I have had an interest in Horology and Eschatology, both having links to time. Mankind has a preoccupation with time ...we wear watches so that we can keep account of “time.” The Bible make a distinction between the “temporal” and the “eternal.” Paul says that the things that are seen are “temporal” but the things not seen are “eternal” (2 Cor. 4:18). Eternity is endless, but time is measured by a “beginning” and an “end.” The door of opportunity for spiritual reconciliation with the Creator (Almighty God) will be closed the second we step from time into eternity. Time is the framework we have to choose our eternity ... Heaven or Hell. We need to make our choice in time as to who we will follow, the god of this world (Satan) or the creator of the universe (Jesus the Christ). The choices we make in time will shape our eternity.



The prophet Isaiah wrote in 51:6 - "Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath; for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner. But My salvation shall be forever, and My righteousness shall not be abolished." How true that is for us today. Our Salvation is eternal and our righteousness in Jesus the Christ is assured. In this end times generation there are some that will not taste death. How awesome is that ...


My concern is the hits and hurt the end-times watchers will take if or when the rapture does not happen on Rosh Hashanah in October of 2016, as so many prophecy "experts" are saying now. What damage will that do to those less versed in eschatology. Even more of a falling away ??? Are the eschatologists of today becoming part of the end-times prophecy in predicting rapture dates that fail. I know that we are in the season and quite close. But close might just be a year or two away also. Still not long in the big picture of things. Saints, don't set your hearts on a date but rather on the person of Jesus the Christ as we watch and serve in these end times.
