Darkness Is Coming

strange sights in the sky, darkness, earthquakes

He’s coming and He will not delay. On September 11, 2001 there was a catastrophic event that took place on American soil. 

This also took place as a sign in the spiritual realm. Whatever happens in the natural is a precursor, or a shadow, if you will, of future events. Our center of World Trade collapsed. 

Next you saw the economy begin to feel the groaning of this tidal wave. All the terror coming together on that day. The most evil hearts coming together as the spirits also waged war in the heavenlies. Principalities bringing this epic war to American soil and terror into our hearts. 

Now darkness rolling in. On the same day. Across the continent. Closing military bases and threatening the safety. Turning our trust to the only one that we can trust. It is in the Lord that we must seek our refuge and strength. He is the one who has created the heavens and the earth. When men stumble around in the darkness, He shall give sight to the blind. He shall be the voice to speak and give guidance to all who place their trust in Him. “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.” Psalm 20:7 

You will see many at this time, that are gripped with terror. I have already gone through this in my own life. The testing by fire. The Lord has shown me. We cannot place our trust in man or in riches. “Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who depends on flesh for his strength and whose heart turns away from the Lord.” Jer.17:5 

This is not to say you shouldn’t submit to the proper governing authorities, but do not trust in them for your strength and thereby turn away from the Lord. There are so many who believe they are self-made or they receive everything from their employers, etc. and it is the reason for so much strife. God is the ultimate authority and whatever happens is a direct result of His plan. In the end He deals the cards. 

I can sense a persons spirit just from a simple phone call. Some are genuine and loving. True. Others are not . They have a worldly spirit. I feel a grief and long for them to know this love of the Father. To let go of this material world. The Lord told us that there are two distinct people in this world. And we should pray that they can be released from this captivity. 

This is the purpose and the plan for His signs. The evil does not come from Him. It is demonic and the great battle is coming. But the Lord is letting the whole world know that He is standing at the door. 

He will not return to this earth at His second coming. It is called the Rapture. Or the “snatching away.” Some wonder how this will happen. If anyone studies the festivals of the Lord, many believe that God has hidden His timetable of events in them I am one who subscribes to this belief. I know that everything written in His word was done so for a reason. 

Many believe that Yom Teruah, the Feast of Trumpets, is the Day of the Lord. And rightly so. It is the Trumpet Blasts, and the exact description of what will take place at the rapture. “For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 1 Thess.4:17 

Well, if I’m crazy so are millions of believers for thousands of years. We know this will happen and it is going to happen very soon. The Lord tells us, “but for you brothers, are not in darkness, so this day should not surprise you like a thief. You are all sons of the day. 

Now, whoever, chooses to read this, I am believing the Lord is illuminating His truth to your spirit. I’m praying that the Holy Spirit is in you and guiding you into all truth. That you are  “sons of the day.” That you are not caught unaware when this day approaches. 

His second coming will be a physical event which transpires 7 years after the Rapture of His church, which He calls His bride. How will this be explained? I don’t know and I don’t care. All I know is I will be counted as one who believes. I’m the bride and that’s all that matters. I wan’t my lamp full of oil and full of light upon His return!

Tragedy…Our Opportunity to show love

Love flowing through our hands

The devastation of Haiti. It’s everywhere. The compassion is being poured out, by others is astounding.  “Why do these terrible things happen? Doesn’t God know what’s going on?”

Oh yes, He knows and He is with us during these terrible tragedies. He was there at the cross too, when Jesus saw these days coming. This is horrible to live in a world of sickness, famine, earthquakes, tsunamis’ and death. And this is why Christ endured all of the pain and suffering. He knew the future and redeeming  the creation was worth every bit of His suffering and death. Yet, creation is still in its painful grip….for the present time.

This is something we cannot avoid…at least for now. It is so horrifying to see these things, yet, we know that no human being could even begin to show compassion toward another, unless opportunity arises for us to do so.

Our Father told us that “He  holds all of our tears.” This means that our tears are precious to Him. He also grieves with us. He told us that man was not created to experience this heartbreak, and one day it will all come to an end.

For the present time, we must live with this. And do the best we can to extend our love and compassion to others in need. Haiti, is right in my back yard. I see the people every day in my community. Many of them have loved ones that are missing or dead.

The depth of sadness is palpable.  We tend to feel helpless in times like this. But we can do much more than we think. The smallest act of kindness, is seed sown into a harvest of compassion.

The Word of God has spoken into the power of unity and these events are the very circumstances that bring us together. In Genesis 11, mankind had come together to build a tower to the heavens. The Lord Himself came down to see this tower and He spoke of a powerful concept to men, if they can understand. He said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.” Of course, if you look at the lines previous, the motive of mans heart was all wrong. This is why God scattered them. It was pride. They had “wanted to build a tower that reaches the heavens and make a name for ourselves, and not be scattered.” But, now reading what our Lord has stated, there is hidden a mystery. The power is in unity, and that being birthed by Gods love, will bring the very power, in which nothing is impossible, for man! This is what He wants us to discover in our suffering.

I believe that if each person reaches out in love, we become a powerful force. We become the hands and feet of God. His love poured out on others. Yes, some people don’t even know how to help, yet they want to be a part of something.  We can help them be a part of Gods love and mercy, by asking them if we can become a chauffeur to take their donations to drop off points, or bring them along as we serve. We can canvass the neighborhood and request unused items which they wish to give.Anything to help is incorporating this unity of spirit

Pass out flyers and make purchases for a few extra items when you shop. You can also give money to organizations. Former presidents Bush and Clinton, have just set up a charity organization to help rebuild Haiti.

We have the privilege of being part of Gods very heart to a hurting world. The harvest that we reap for sowing these seeds, is the harvest of righteousness and love.

“Give and it shall be given you, a good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap.” (Luke 6:38) It is a spiritual principle that God will return a harvest of whatever seeds we sow into the world.

The natural inclination of mankind is to serve self. But when we turn the natural laws upside down, by doing the unnatural, the actions become supernatural! Our time is short….sow good seed!
