I'm sure everyone remembers the story of the little boy who cried wolf. You remember, he cried wolf and the people of the town came running to his rescue and there was no wolf. He cried again, and the people once again came running to his rescue and again there was no wolf. Then one day the boy cried out again because a wolf was now truly attacking him but this time no one came to his rescue because they didn't believe that he was really in danger because of the false alarms before. This time, however, the wolf ate him.
For the people who live in a hurricane prone region we've experienced similar events. You prep for the oncoming storm and then it blows over. The urge not to prep for the next storm arises because of the expense and the trouble to do so. However, with hurricanes, we've learned you can't judge one based upon a previous one. We must always prepare.
Thus it is with the warning to the church now. I know for years the watchmen have been sending out the warning of the upcoming storm. The attack against the church. The need for emergency supplies. Most importantly the need to be right with God and doing the thing He has called you to do.
Now is not the time to ignore the warning. The Wolf is here and he has begun devouring and he has a whole pack of wolves that have know become very hungry to destroy America and God's people.
God gives us several warnings about what we must do. We must have our spiritual lamps full with His oil and our wicks trimmed. We must be telling others about Jesus and bring in the harvest. We must be found doing what Jesus has assigned each one of to be doing when He returns. We have to be sure we do not have unforgiveness in our hearts. Additionally, we must prepare in the natural. We should have emergency food supplies; Water, beans, rice, canned meats, matches, salt, baking soda, oil, flour and other items like blankets, coats and extra clothing.
Don't get caught up in the "mammon marketing" of the season. It is not about gifts, electronic, toys...it is about souls and eternity. Jesus came for souls and to teach us how to be "sons" of God, "Sons of Light".
God has told me Millions were going to die. He said He has been telling His people to move their locations. Some have chosen to stay, some are unwilling to leave their possessions. Some feel they are too old and cannot move. Some don't want to leave family members. REMEMBER a choice not to OBEY is to DISOBEY not matter what the reason is. Rev 3:10 Because thou hast kept (followed) the word of my patience (endurance), I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
This scripture is saying that it is our constant obedience to His instructions that will keep us. If He says, "Go right" and we go left we could end up in a minefield. We need to have daily, moment by moment obedience in this hour.
What is about to come will effect ALL people groups. No one color or religion is safe. God said He was about to judge the WHOLE earth.
If you don't know Jesus and are reading this. Repent (turn away, stop) of your sins and ask Him to become the Lord of your life. Ask Him for His forgiveness. Ask Him to fill you with His Holy Spirit.
YOU don't have the luxury of being right in this hour. If there is bitterness, anger, hurt, unforgiveness between you and someone else; deal with it now! Time is up! Whether you understand it or not just do it. Get right with God. God is God. He doesn't have to make sense to us. We just have to obey and submit to Him.
Get your head out of the sand. Get on your knees. Why do the terrible things have to happen before God can get your attention? Let Him get your attention now!
Come as you are to Jesus. He paid the price for all of us on the cross to redeem us from our sin. He loves You. Jer 33:3 "Call upon Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things you know not."
Mat 25:1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
Mat 25:2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
Mat 25:3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
Mat 25:4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
Mat 25:5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps
Mat 25:6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
Mat 25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Mar 13:33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:
Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
