Are you sensitive to what is happening in our times?

end of the world

When man violates the word of God and predict a date which turns out to be false there is the danger of complacency and scoffing amongst other men. This cynicism can also creep into the house of God.

No One Knows the Day or Hour

36“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.

Matt24:36

God wants us to be ready always like the five wise virgins.

The Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins

1 “Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.

2Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish.

3Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them,

4but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

5But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept.

6“And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’

7Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps.

8And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’

9But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’

10
And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut.

11“Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’

12But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’

13“Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming. Matt25:1-13

•Prophesies fulfilled in our times

22  And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.Matt24:22

Perilous Times and Perilous Men

•1  But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:

•2  For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

•3  unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good,

•4  traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,

•5  having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 2Timothy 3:1-5

Meteorite  in Russia and 1000 Casualties… Coincident?

meteorite1

•In terms of human casualties, Friday’s meteorite strike is the worst ever reported. Almost 1,000 are reported to have sought treatment after the fall. At least 34 of them were hospitalised, with two reported to be in intensive care.

•30  ” And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke.

•31  The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD. Joel2:30-31

Other incidences

•Before this there were only stories of a dog being killed in Egypt by a meteorite in 1911 and a boy being hit, but not seriously injured, by one in Uganda in 1992.

•The Russian Academy of Sciences estimate the fireball that streaked over the Ural mountains on Friday morning weighed about 10 tons. The speed of entry was at least 54,000 kilometres per hour (33,000 mph) and it shattered about 30-50 kilometres (18-32 miles) above ground, showering meteorites that caused damage over a wide area.

•The shockwave from the fireball’s supersonic passage through the atmosphere broke windows and set off car alarms. The collision took place as the world waited for Friday evening’s close pass of asteroid 2012 DA14. According to the European Space Agency, no link between the two events is thought possible.

•Until Friday morning, astronomers had thought the asteroid most likely to hit Earth was one called 2007 VK184. It is about 130 metres across and has a slim 1 in 2,000 chance of hitting Earth some time between 2048 and 2057. A danger that is thought will disappear with better tracking of its orbit.

Well Done, David Schumm

•At David Schumm’s memorial service, we celebrated the optimism, perseverance, and faith of a man with severe cerebral palsy. For all of David’s 74 years, the simple tasks of daily life required great effort. Through it all, he kept smiling and helping others by giving more than 23,000 hours as a hospital volunteer, along with encouraging at-risk teens.

•David selected Isaiah 35:3-10 to be read at his service: “Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who are fearful-hearted, ‘Be strong, do not fear! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God; He will come and save you. . . . Then the lame shall leap like a deer, and the tongue of the dumb sing. For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert” (vv.3-4,6). This promise, given to the people of Israel while in captivity, reminds us of our hope for the time when Christ will return for those who trust and follow Him.

•During David’s last weeks, he often pointed visitors to a large picture of Jesus near his bed, saying, “He’s coming to get me soon.” This is the hope Jesus Christ gives to all His children, which calls forth our thanks and praise to Him!

Preach the Word in Season

2 Timothy 4: Preach the Word

•1  I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom:

•2  Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.

•3  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers;

•4  and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.

•5  But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry

Because of Delay

Because of delay in the day of Moses the people cast off restraint and revelled and rebelled.

Ex20 Moses Where is this Moses? He is not coming back.

•8  But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

•9  The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

•The Day of the Lord

•10  But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.

•11  Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness,

•12  looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat?

•2Pet3:8-12

Evil Men and Impostors Growing Worse and Worse…

•12  Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.

•13  But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.2 Tim3:12-13

This is the Day of Salvaytion

This is the Acceptable time.

If you are not sure of your salvation do not delay. Tomorrow is not promised anyone.

Find a Bible-believing Church and commit to it and grow in grace as we wait the appearing of our God and Saviour.

Unless you are planted you cannot flourish.

 •13  Those who are planted in the house of the LORD Shall flourish in the courts of our God. Ps92:13

The Lord will descend

16  For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.

•17  Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

•18  Therefore comfort one another with these words.1Thess4:16-18

I will Come Again

In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. John14:2-3

I Am Coming Quickly

 20 He who testifies to these things says,

“Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!

21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. Rev22:20-21

Walking in the Light

God is lightWalking in the light

Is the way of Life.

Does not come by might

But through surrender

To the Word of Life.

Walking in the night

Will surely bring death,

And what a great plight!

Oh, what a plunder!

Darkness deals sure death.

So let’s walk in Love;

Walk in obedience

Like light from above

Then comes His presence

With fullness of Joy.

The Test of Knowing Him

3     Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments.

4     He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

5     But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.

6     He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.

7     Brethren, I write no new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you have had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which you heard from the beginning.

8     Again, a new commandment I write to you, which thing is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away, and the true light is already shining.

9     He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now.

10   He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him.

11   But he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.

1John2:5-11

Take Courage

faith & prayer

Psalm 89:19

I have exalted one chosen out of the people.

C.H. Spurgeon

Why was Christ chosen out of the people? Speak, my heart, for heart-thoughts are best. Was it not that He might be able to be our brother, in the blest tie of kindred blood? Oh, what relationship there is between Christ and the believer! The believer can say, “I have a Brother in heaven; I may be poor, but I have a Brother who is rich, and is a King, and will He suffer me to want while He is on His throne? Oh, no! He loves me; He is my Brother.” Believer, wear this blessed thought, like a necklace of diamonds, around the neck of thy memory; put it, as a golden ring, on the finger of recollection, and use it as the King’s own seal, stamping the petitions of thy faith with confidence of success. He is a brother born for adversity, treat Him as such. Christ was also chosen out of the people that He might know our wants and sympathize with us. “He was tempted in all points like as we are, yet without sin.” In all our sorrows we have His sympathy. Temptation, pain, disappointment, weakness, weariness, poverty-He knows them all, for He has felt all. Remember this, Christian, and let it comfort thee. However difficult and painful thy road, it is marked by the footsteps of thy Saviour; and even when thou reachest the dark valley of the shadow of death, and the deep waters of the swelling Jordan, thou wilt find His footprints there. In all places whithersoever we go, He has been our forerunner; each burden we have to carry, has once been laid on the shoulders of Immanuel.

“His way was much rougher and darker than mine

Did Christ, my Lord, suffer, and shall I repine?”

Take courage! Royal feet have left a blood-red track upon the road, and consecrated the thorny path for ever.

I am with You always

Those Who Know Their God…

“Come on, let’s play snap: Charlie, 3, gets to grips with alligator Gump

“Most children enjoy playing with a puppy or kitten – or anything which is unlikely to take a chunk out of them.

“But fearless three-year-old Charlie Parker prefers sharp and snappy to cute and fluffy as he plays with a North American baby alligator named Gump.

“He comes from a long line of animal carers who own and run the Ballarat Wildlife Park in Victoria.

“Proud father and park owner Greg Parker said ‘wildlife warrior’ Charlie had grown up round the sanctuary.

crocodile boy

‘We didn’t go out to encourage it but he just loves reptiles,’ he added.

‘Like everybody, he’s frightened of some things, others not so much. He can be an ambassador for conservation and animal welfare and I think it’s great.’

The award-winning park is home to more than 80 kangaroos, koalas, wombats and a variety of reptiles”

http://metro.co.uk/2013/01/20/come-on-lets-play-snap-charlie-3-gets-to-grips-with-alligator-gump-3359398/

So what is our inspiration from this unusual source?

 

Those who know well their God

And know well His word

And know well His Spirit

Shall do incredible exploits,

Just like Charlie Conquered Gump.

 

Abraham staggered not at the promise Rom4:

And laughter- Isaac- was born Gen.21

David walloped Goliath of Gath 1Sam17

And turned on the light in Israel.

Shamgar with an ox goad Judges 3:31

Slew over 600 Philistines.

 

They will fear no evil

And trample on the devil

When he surfaces to challenge.

 

Like Paul wrote 13 best-sellers

Like Peter’s shadow securing healing Acts 5:15-16

Like Isaac prevailed in Gerar Gen26

Like Jacob prevailed and became a prince Gen32:28

Like David drowned the enemy in Ziklag1Sam30:1

Like Gideon and 300 trounced the Medianites Judges 6& 7

Like Esther averted holocaust Esther4

Daniel shut the mouths of lions Dan6:

His friends quenched the power of flames Dan3:

Joseph went from pit to palaceGen41:

Phinehas stopped the plaguePs106:30

Elijah called down fire and stopped the rain1ki17:1

Like John Mark bounced back 2Tim4:11

Like C.H. Spurgeon, John Bunyan, John Hyde

Reinhard Bonnke, Smith Wigglesworth and many more.

Guess what? You too can.

I can too.

Why?

God is no respecter of persons.

He has no grand children.

If you know Him well

Know His word well

Know His Spirit well

Willing to be bruised

Then you too will be used.

 

19   If you are willing and obedient, You shall eat the good of the land; Isa1:19

31   What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? Rom8:31

4     You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.1John4:4

7     If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.

8     By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.John15:7-8

16   He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.

17   And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;

18   they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

Mark16:16-18

  1. Acts      10:34

Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:

So the Onus is on you and I

The choice is yours and mine

If we pay the price,

We will obtain the prize.

Fruitful Colourful Bow

joseph's coat 3

‘Fruitful bow by the well’

Drank living water from heaven

Enriched, endowed, flourishing

Called to be a breadbasket

Targeted by the archers

They shot their arrows

And never missed the bull’s eye

Nearly buried him alive.

 

Despite the great dream

A source of contention

Opposition and persecution

Cause: Coat of contention

and coming future dominion.

Traded like a chattel

But God’s presence

Made mammoth difference

Anointing oozing, profuse

Favour found him

And elevated him

 joseph pit test

Yet another dart was thrown

Challenging his purity

Confronting his integrity

Culminating in imprisonment

Conjuring great bafflement

Why evil attending the good?

Until it was revealed, understood.

Dream disdained, denounced

Dream received and revealed

Dream promotes purpose

Dawning of a New Day as he rose.

joseph pit test 3

24   But his bow remained in strength, And the arms of his hands were made strong By the hands of the Mighty God of Jacob (From there is the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel),

25   By the God of your father who will help you, And by the Almighty who will bless you With blessings of heaven above, Blessings of the deep that lies beneath, Blessings of the breasts and of the womb.

26   The blessings of your father Have excelled the blessings of my ancestors, Up to the utmost bound of the everlasting hills. They shall be on the head of Joseph, And on the crown of the head of him who was separate from his brothers.

Gen49:24-26

The Three Wise Men

The Three wise men

wise men

The Three wise men

Were led by the star

To the place of worship

And the place of fellowship.

There they gave gold, myrrh

And frankincense to the King-

King of kings and Lord of Lords.

 

Today may we also be led

Into His very presence;

into the Holy of holies-

Led by His Holy Spirit

And there to give our best

Crowning Him Lord of all

Enthroning Him on our hearts.

 

 

5     So they said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet:

6     ‘ But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, Are not the least among the rulers of Judah; For out of you shall come a Ruler Who will shepherd My people Israel.’

7     Then Herod, when he had secretly called the wise men, determined from them what time the star appeared.

8     And he sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search carefully for the young Child, and when you have found Him, bring back word to me, that I may come and worship Him also.”

9     When they heard the king, they departed; and behold, the star which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was.

10   When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy.

11   And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

12   Then, being divinely warned in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed for their own country another way.

Matt2:5-12

What do the presents of frankincense gold and myrrh represent?

The Kings brought gifts of Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh.

-Gold represents purity and the Royal Crown and is a fitting gift for our King.
-Frankincense are the white bits from the gum resin of a tree that grows in Arabia, and was used to make special incense which was then burned in the Temple by the priests as a sweet-smelling offering to God, and reminds us that Jesus is both a priest and an offering to God on our behalf.
-Myrrh comes from a small bush in Arabia and it was used to make perfume and annointing oil. It was used by the Egyptians in their embalming fluids, and as a perfume it was used by many nations as part of preparing a body for burial.

 

Lev 2:2 And he shall bring it to Aaron’s sons the priests: and he shall take thereout his handful of the flour thereof, and of the oil thereof, with all the frankincense thereof; and the priest shall burn the memorial of it upon the altar, to be an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD:

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_do_the_presents_of_frankincense_gold_and_myrrh_represent

 

 

Since gold represents His majesty and royalty and glory and His worth, may we remember the worth of our Saviour and exalt Him in our hearts and worship Him for who He is – Our Lord and Saviour and our God, as we remember His birth. May we keep ourselves pure even as He is pure because we are partakers of His holiness

May we also who have accepted Him as Lord and Saviour know that we  have been accepted in the beloved and have been made partakers of His royalty and purity.

May we carry ourselves as royalty and be His worthy ambassadors.

 

9     But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;

10   who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy. 1Pet2:9-10

 20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.2Cor5:20

As Myrrh represents the material used for the embalming of His body, may it remind us of the sacrifice He made for us to give us New Life. Paul also reminds us that we have been crucified with Him and this life we live, we live by faith in the Son of God.

20        I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.Gal2:20.

We died with Him and were raised with Him. Eph2:6

  May the Frankincense remind us how His obedience- offering of Himself on the cross -was a sweet smelling fragrance to the nostrils of the Father. May we also be inspired to yield our lives in submission and obey the word of God so that our lives will ooze such sweet smelling fragrance to our Father in heaven.
