I work in the newspaper industry, which as you probably already know is one of many industries that are suffering greatly due to the Tribulation and financial collapse of our monetary system. On Monday, we were asked to attend a meeting conducted by the CEO’s of the company that owns our newspaper. We were presented with information and a rundown of the financial not-so-well-being of our company overall, and a comment made not once, but twice, by a CEO which paraphrased went a little like this: “The newspaper industry has endured many changes over hundreds of years and if you cannot find it within yourself to have a positive attitude in a time change, we don’t need you.”
Many people were offended by the comment, which while it was delivered with a smile, to many people who are working hard and struggling to make ends meet themselves it was as good as saying to them, “We bought your newspaper just before the financial crisis hit and that was a bad move on our part. And even though we CEO’s are bringing home ten times what you do in a year, if you can’t do your part in making us money, here’s the door”.
Sure, it wasn’t the nicest thing to hear but I understand that it had to be said because while our company is afloat right now, it won’t take a very big wave at all to turn it into a sinking ship. And at the same time, if you look at any business as a true team, a team that is working together to achieve success in a common goal, it’s true. They don’t need anyone who isn’t going to put in their 100%. So, essentially, the CEO’s are asking the employees to get off the fence and choose a side. Either we are with them, or we are against them and if we aren’t with them, we already are against them.
Mark 9:40 For whoever is not against us is for us.
A similar situation is happening in the world today. Because judgment is upon us, we are being told we must choose between good and evil; Yahweh’s way, or Dawn Lucifer’s way. We must choose because there will be no sitting on the fence allowed. Today, in these End Times, we must exercise our free will and choose which side we wish to stand on and which path we choose to follow; the one to the right, or to the left.
Joshua 24:15 But if it doesn't please you to worship the LORD, choose for yourselves today the one you will worship: the gods your fathers worshiped beyond the Euphrates River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living. As for me and my family, we will worship the LORD."
Yahweh calls out to all Her children as She makes Her name known via many signs that are plainly seen, heard and experienced around the world as the Tribulation continues to unfold before us; but She also wants us to exercise our own free will and do what is in our hearts because in Her infinite wisdom She knows that love, loyalty, obedience and faith cannot be forced upon or expected from anyone who is not willing to fully accept Her and Her son Christ Jesus into their hearts.
While we are asked to choose, we are also well informed of what will happen based on the choice we make. Proverbs 1:24-32 explains in full detail what is in store for those on the opposite side of the fence. The side that is aligned not with Father, but with Dawn Lucifer.
24 Since I called out and you refused,
extended my hand and no one paid attention,
25 since you neglected all my counsel
and did not accept my correction,
26 I, in turn, will laugh at your calamity.
I will mock when terror strikes you,
27 when terror strikes you like a storm
and your calamity comes like a whirlwind,
when trouble and stress overcome you.
28 Then they will call me, but I won't answer;
they will search for me, but won't find me.
29 Because they hated knowledge,
didn't choose to fear the LORD,
30 were not interested in my counsel,
and rejected all my correction,
31 they will eat the fruit of their way
and be glutted with their own schemes.
32 For the waywardness of the inexperienced will kill them,
and the complacency of fools will destroy them.
To love Father is also to love and cherish Her way, and to want with all your heart to obey Her commands. To love Father and love and cherish Her way, is also to plainly see and understand that without Her and Her instruction we fall into disarray and chaos – the disarray and chaos that those of us living on this earth currently find ourselves in. It is to want with all your heart to be a member of Her family, a part of Her "Team" and giving 100% in working towards a common goal of love, loyalty...and the vindication of Her holy name.
The recent presidential election clearly showed what it is that people yearn for – Change. They elected a man into office who promised the citizens of the United States that he could produce what it was they most want. However, the truth is that the only One who could at this point bring any change that would be for the better is Father Yahweh – and that is precisely what She will do. Truth be told, just as the CEO's stated at our meeting, She really doesn't need any of us. But She does want us and She loves us, but She also gives us the right to choose. I pray that you choose wisely. Amen.
