2 Corinthians 4:6 "For God, who said, "Light shall shine out of darkness" -He has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of God's glory in the face of Jesus Christ."
While browsing MySpace today, I happened upon the Most Read Blogs button and clicked on it only to see that the NUMBER ONE most read blog on MySpace is titled “The End of Christianity”. The same user, who goes by the name “Human Evolution” also has the 6th most red blog on MySpace titled, “Where did we come from?” Later on, while reading through Google News headlines, I came upon a very well written article titled, “Other Religions Accepted while Christianity Scoffed At”, by Jamie Kenny of The Olympian. The article ended in a poignant statement that spoke of the world today in regards to Christianity and mankind in general. “If only my (Christian) faith was reclassified as a philosophy or cultural tradition my views might become accepted, too. A cross on the Capitol Campus would be no different than a totem pole.”
Do you recognize that both the MySpace blogs and the news story are signs of End Times?
This week I was so happy to be witness to the awakening of a friend’s husband. It was proof positive in how Father’s light cuts through the darkness of the world and is able to reach Her children. It truly was as if his eyes were opened to what was happening in the world around him for the very first time.
As a reader of this newsletter, you’ve noticed that we have accompanying scriptures that apply to each section for Nourishment from the Throne, Signs Up Above, Signs Down Below, Signs of Natural Disasters, Signs of False Shepherds & Religion and Faith Under Fire. This is because while we are sharing nourishment, we are also pulling the headlines from multitudes of news sources from around the world and they all apply to the prophecies spoken of in the scriptures. It is our hope and most sincere prayer that in reading our newsletter, that the reader not only receive life-saving nourishment, but that also via these news stories the eyes of some or many may be opened as well. That those who are touched by Father’s light via the newsletter also experience an awakening.
So what if you are one of those people who recognizes the signs around us and attributes them to prophecy being fulfilled?
Perhaps you’re in a state of shock. It’s not an easy thing to know that Father’s wrath is building and the end is near. You may feel disappointment in not having had the chance to do things you always wanted to do. To get married and have children and/or see your children grow up and get married and have children of their own. To build your dream house, or travel to parts of the world you’ve never seen.
The thing to remember in all of this is that creation as we know it, was not a part of Father's original plan. The end will bring an end to Dawn Lucifer's world and all that is evil - which is a good thing - and there is so much more to look forward to. More than any of us can even begin to imagine. Once you get past the initial shock, you will realize this, and come to a greater understanding that it is not all doom and gloom but good news because you will begin to look forward to Christ's return and the establishment of his kingdom. This is why we proclaim the GOOD NEWS - because it is just that!
You may also feel frightened. Fear almost always stems from the unknown and there are many unknowns in regards to End Times. You may wonder if you’re ready. If you’ve lived a good life and been a truly good person – not by societies standards but by Father’s. If you’ve done all that you can do to follow The Way that Christ Jesus set before us. In essence, you may be wondering if you’ve been good enough to “make it” into the Rapture of Father’s faithful footstep followers of Christ. Your fear may also be that of the thoughts of what Armageddon will bring. You may also fear for the safety and survival of your loved ones because your eyes have been fully opened to the amount of evil that exists in this world at present.
There is an emotional process involved in being human and coming to an understanding of what is occurring around us and what is to come and not everyone processes this knowledge in the same way. For the most part, people of the world today choose to ignore, dismiss or deny what they may very well feel deep down in their hearts and this can be for a multitude of reasons. Others have been mislead and are so far immersed in darkness that the light may never reach them.
If you are one of the people I described, who recognizes the signs around us and attributes them to prophecy being fulfilled, now IS the time to search your heart. Now is the time for a full awakening of the truth as we are each responsible for our own salvation. Do not be in shock because it has been prophesied. And do not be afraid because Father will make sure that Her faithful children are delivered from the coming wrath. Instead, prepare your heart and guard it as well.
In our Kingdom Message of Salvation, we share a message of truth that details what is required for salvation. They are two things. 1) An acceptance of Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior and 2) A good heart condition.
Perhaps you’ve accepted Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior, but what about the 2nd requirement?
- Do you love the LORD our God with all your heart, mind and strength?
- Have you humbled yourself completely?
- Have you confessed your sins and shortcomings and felt repentance within your heart and asked for forgiveness?
- Have you submitted yourself fully to Father’s will?
- Have you recognized fully that without Father Yahweh, nothing within our realities is possible?
- Have you come to an understanding that without Father and without the Ransom Sacrifice of Christ Jesus, we would be lost for eternity?
There are many more questions one could ask oneself while searching one’s heart and I know… because they are questions I have asked myself almost daily. Speaking as someone who once walked in darkness, was found and experienced an awakening, I understand the myriad of emotions involved and the roller coaster it can sometimes feel like because right now, the world is filled with anxieties and frustrations. But all of that will soon end, and that is why the coming wrath is a double-edged sword. With it will come eternal death for those declared negative but it will also bring the promised rest of Christ’s Kingdom for those declared faithful.
Genesis 2:2-3 “By the seventh day, God completed His work that He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work that He had done. God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, for on it He rested from His work of creation.”
Until then all we can do is continue to do everything within our power to continue our walk in Christ’s footsteps, have faith, and hope, and know in our hearts that with the coming rest and restoration of creation, will come a reality that is greater and more splendid that we could ever imagine.
Acts 3:19-20 “Therefore repent and turn back, that your sins may be wiped out so that seasons of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and He may send Jesus, who has been appointed Messiah for you. Heaven must welcome Him until the times of the restoration of all things, which God spoke about by the mouth of His holy prophets from the beginning.”
