“Before the decree is issued, Or the day passes like chaff, Before the Lord’s fierce anger comes upon you, Before the day of the Lord’s anger comes upon you! Seek the Lord, all you meek of the earth, Who have upheld His justice.Seek righteousness, seek humility.”
“It may be that you will be hidden In the day of the Lord’s anger.”-Zephaniah 2:2-3
The Day of the Lord’s Wrath is coming. And when it arrives, there will be no escape for us, unless God Himself chooses to “hide” us.
We need to seek the Lord Now, while we still can 🙂
“even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.”-Daniel 12:4
We know that in the last days, “knowledge” will be “increased”. Just as we know that “knowledge” is “increased” now! But are we using it wisely?
Ripped from the headlines are stories about cloning and making babies without God, new ways to commit abortion, new ways to do transgender operations, and new ways to make robots without souls…
Articles are written by many in the media that constantly divide God’s people, instead of bringing them together. We read postings on the internet constantly, but are they even true? And it’s not just the stories we read, but the stories that are eliminated. For example, what happened to the daily stories on the Ukraine war? It’s not like it’s over…
And does all this information bring us closer to God or drive us further away?
We are constantly encouraged by our government, and many in the media, to focus our lives on our own selfish desires instead of serving God! And serving each other!
Scientific research is good, if it is used to help mankind. The internet can be a great thing, it what we read helps us to love one another and if what we read is actually true.
Until it is, it is good for us to contribute what we can, but we need to get our own information from God’s Truth-The Bible.
“37 On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”[a]39 By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.”- John 7:37
Sometimes there is a moment or moments that really renew and strengthen our faith. It might be a sunrise or a rainbow. It might be something we heard in a sermon or an answered prayer. It might be the incredible beauty of the outdoors or the sun dancing on the water. Whatever it is, place it in your heart and focus on it. And share it with others 🙂
And before you know it there will be a second and a third moment. And then each moment will become easier to recognize, and so there will be more moments that strengthen your faith and more moments to share with others 🙂
And before you know it, the Holy Spirit will run through you and out to others -=all the time :).
” I believe, I have hope, I adore you and I love you God”. This prayer came from the Angel of Peace when our Blessed Mother Mary appeared at Fatima. And I always add I Thank You after I adore you. This prayer I say everyday and it has been a great help to me 🙂
“For the nation and kingdom which will not serve you shall perish, And those nations shall be utterly ruined.”-Isaiah 60:1
It’s only natural that we want to think to God’s Love and Mercy for us, rather than His Justice. After all, God’s Love and Mercy is Much more fun to think about! And what have we done to deserve love like this? How have we earned God’s Great Love? Nothing. God just loves us and He loved us first 🙂
But God is also Just. He has to be. We need a Merciful and Just God. Because otherwise evil would run wild and hurt all of those who truly follow Christ. Evil must be stopped! Which is one of the reasons God must also be Just.
God has, on numerous occasions, given America a choice. Mercy or Justice. But unfortunately, our nation, time and again in this century, has chosen Justice.
And so now here we sit, awaiting God’s Justice, and God’s Justice will come.
We need to Pray for Mercy, while we can. We especially need to Pray to God for His Great Mercy for each other. We need to pray that God will be merciful to all believers that exist in this country and beyond. For no matter what occurs, God loves us and will hear our Prayers 🙂
These days Are coming. And although we don’t know the “exact day and hour”. we need to get ready for them-NOW.
So how do we prepare? We pray. We ask God to strengthen our faith, and we do our own part in strengthening our faith as well by reading the Bible and Praying. Also, we can Pray and Ask God to strengthen our faith. And God will be happy we did :).
We need to practice walking with Jesus everyday as closely as possible. Because walking with Jesus takes daily practice.
We need to practice praying to the Holy Spirit, remembering that He is in us! What a gift. But how many times do we forget this great gift? He came to be our Comforter and Friend. We need to reach out to Him every day! And we need to learn how to let Him reach us 🙂
And we need to remember that “bad things” happen to “good people”. When we hurt, or see someone we love hurt, keeping our faith can become more challenging, but it is also when we need it the most. Ask God for help during these times and He will help you. For God is always Faithful!
And remember, Our hope and our help come from the Lord!
If we do all of these things, we will be ready! And we need to get ready NOW. God will take care of the rest 🙂
