We must keep our eyes wide open and NOT be blinded by what we see. Not all signs and wonders are from God. We are to be diligent in our seeking of the Lord and with the discernment we are given by the Holy Spirit we are to KEEP WATCH! “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.” Roman 9:15 Our heavenly Father is just, and what is done in the dark will be revealed by the Truth of His Light. “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.” John 14:15 God’s will is that we love Him with all our heart, mind and soul and that we obey His command to walk in His holiness. Our Father chose us to be instruments of purified gold and silver, for His holy and noble purposes. Holiness is NOT something we can obtain by quoting scripture, or any other self-effort. Holiness is something we choose to walk in as we yield to the holy Spirit. “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord MUST turn away from wickedness.” 2 Timothy 2:19-22. Saul was blinded by the Glory of God and was told what he MUST do. Saul had a choice do what he was told, or die blind. “God’s solid foundation stand firm, sealed with this inscription ‘The Lord knows those who are His.” REMEMBER “Vengeance is Mine, sayeth the Lord” Moses knew that he needed the help of His Father when he went back to those who were worshipping the golden calf. Moses asked God, “Please show me your glory.” God replied; “I will make all My goodness pass before you and will proclaim before you My name ‘The Lord.’ And I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy.” All churches shut down in March of 2020 as the pandemic spread to over 200 countries. Let us be as bold as Moses and before we speak to a group of people in 2020, let us ask Our Father to show us His glory! “In Him we live and move and have our being’; as even some of your own poets have said, “‘For we are indeed His offspring.” Acts 17:38 “‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.” ACTS 2:17 – In the OT we got the law and the story of the law breakers. In the NT we get the Spirit of God which enables His mercy and grace to reach the unsaved through His chosen temples of the Holy Spirit. God is Just and Justice always prevails. “For it was the Lord‘s doing to harden their hearts that they should come against Israel in battle, in order that they should be devoted to destruction and should receive no mercy but be destroyed, just as the Lord commanded Moses.” Joshua 11:20 So here we are in the year 2020 and people are murmuring and speaking evil against each other. We see nations threatening nuclear war against other nations, and we see the SIGNS of famine, earthquakes and deadly plagues. Matthew 24:7 “nation shall rise against nation and Kingdom against Kingdom and there shall be famines and pestilences. These are the beginning of Sorrows.” In the first month of 2020 Australia has a giant bush fire. Biblical Justice, or Poetic Justice? God is alive, God is real and there are consequences, we do reap what we sow. Christians who have sided with the dark side to hate 🧐 have not matured to take the role of the peacemaker. The Bible says “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.” We are to listen, trust and obey God. AMEN To hate simply means that the mind of the one hating has not been regenerated. It knows NOT the will or the MIND of GOD. – Let us NOT behave like the world, let us PRAY for those who have given their hearts and minds over to the evil one. 2020 was the second time in history that a U.S. president gave a state of the union after being impeached. The first president being Clinton in 1999. There is a confusion and turmoil in the body of Christ, in His church, in the White House, and across the globe. – President Trump’s 2020 State of the Union honored God, soldiers, the brave, and the heroes. We, We, We…the People will VOTE according to how we are led by the Spirit of God, or by the spirit of hate. ♥ Are ye praying for your enemies? Are you praying for the leaders that God has put in place? “Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.” 1 Peter 2:17 There are a lot of signs that the world is moving towards the fulfillment of these scriptures. On January 25, 2020 world news broadcasted a strange new epidemic called the Corona Virus which has spread to other parts of the world from China. In January China strategically shut down all domestic flights from Wuhan to other parts of China and while knowing the virus was spreading, the government hosted a gigantic town square potluck for thousands of families — then they released thousands of Wuhan residents to fly to Italy and California to celebrate the Chinese New Years. The Rapture could happen at any time. GET READY. On January 25, 2020 a 6.8 earthquake shook Eastern Turkey with 550 injured, and 18 dead. This earthquake was felt in Tel Aviv in Israel.
In February 2020 in Africa a river looking like blood is oozing from the earth. Talk about signs in the Bible, disaster and pestilence are specific acts of judgment. Sin is rampant around the globe. Beware, NOT alarmed, every sneeze is not a curse from God, however, now is time to look up, and look within to inspect the condition of your heart. Poetic Justice is when we experience a fitting punishment for our actions. Biblical justice is symmetric, it is NOT random. The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 14 : 38 “If any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.” We MUST do what God shows us to do. Pray for the healing of our nation. Pray for the salvation of your enemies. God is alive and we all reap the consequences of what we say, do and gossip about. Our Father’s intention is to humble His people into repentance. “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2
Our Father is not mean. Our Father disciplines those He loves. He knows that only repentance will lead His children into eternal life with Him. God’s mercy is that we do NOT get the punishment we deserve. His divine Justice is when we get what we deserve. Mercifully we do not get the punishment we deserve because Jesus took the punishment for us. Jesus paid our debt, the blood of the Lamb washed our sins away. Jesus extends mercy because He came as God in the flesh to sacrifice His life for us because He loves us that much. Such grace is beyond human understanding. God’s marvelous grace is that we get the good we DO NOT deserve.
Jesus declared “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6 During the time of Moses, history tells us that in Egypt, the belief was held that the Nile was the very blood vein, the very vessel of the god of the underworld. God judged the Nile first because it was where they placed their affections. Our God exercised great patience and He gave the Pharaoh nine chances to repent. Our God of Justice never ceases to lend us patience, and He does forgive us IF we turn away from the world to worship Him. Mercy and grace is predicated on our individual awareness of Who God is. Justice is getting what we deserve. Sinners reap what they proudly sow. Financial ruin, sickness, misery, and lack of Joy. The poverty of soul is the emptiness that fame, pleasure and money cannot fill. Perfect justice does not allow one sinner to enter heaven. Heaven only needs one sinner to pollute it. The world only needs one terrorist to make everyone suffer. After 911, we all must take our shoes off before getting on a plane. ” In the Old Testament we read that without God’s grace and mercy no person was able to keep the Law of God. In the New Testament we find the Spirit which delivers the grace and mercy of God, that we may be saved. WHAT IF we are NOW living in the END TIMES? Are you walking on the Highway towards heaven? Christians must be level-headed and Biblically-grounded. This interview reveals the Watch Tower of the Lord and His people. This Berean Sister, Jan Markell is careful in her judgement of what is going on in the church. Open Bible to 2 Thessalonians 2. Posted January 2020. The world needs stable Christians in the end times. We need to be saved and be more productive for Jesus as the time draws near and His prophecies are fulfilled. According to First Corinthians 15:41-52 “Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.” Unfortunately the mystery continues for 97% of Christians today. Statistics say that only 3% of all Believers in Jesus Christ have read the Bible from cover to cover. If we are not getting fed daily by the Word of God, we are spiritually starving. Getting fed once a week from your pastor is not enough to sustain anyone through the attacks against us in just one week. Are you plugged in? Are you hungry for the One who feeds and sustains us? Study Him, not the letter of the law and be satisfied by His glory. Saul was a scholar who could not save himself. Saul/Paul lost his physical and spiritual insights until the Spirit of God came upon Paul and opened his spirit to the saving power of Jesus Christ. “In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for noble purposes and some for ignoble. If a man cleanses himself from the latter (ignoble purposes), he will be an instrument of noble purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.” 2 Timothy 2:20-21 Consider that a clay pot was used by Jesus to turn water into wine for His noble purpose. Jesus was hung on a wooden cross (ignoble purpose) but the thief next to him pleaded for mercy. “For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:18
