Time

These verses are on my mind.

Galatians 4:4-5 (NASB)
But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.
Romans 5:6-8 (NASB)
For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Mark 1:14-15 (NASB)
Now after John had been taken into custody, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.”
At just the right time.  Powerful words.

God is HOLY HOLY HOLY!!! JUSTICE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS AND PERFECTION - COMPLETELY.

Not one bit of Him or anything anywhere not even in His imagination and consciousness is anything other than fully His, fully Obedient, fully and throughly completely through and through perfect.
Hebrews 12:29
for our God is a consuming fire.
Yet Perfect justice and holiness sought to share His perfect boundless love.  Tension.

Isaiah 46:10
Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things which have not been done, Saying, ‘My purpose will be established, And I will accomplish all My good pleasure’;
Perfection knew in advance that sin, rebellion, blasphemy, murder, rape, greed, abuse, sodomy and every perversion would consume the creation.  God alone is Good.  Apart from Him is utter darkness, with wailing and gnashing.

So here is my question - How could complete perfection entertain the thought of a fallen and depraved creation.

How could anything anywhere exist for even a moment apart from His consuming righteous justice perfection and holiness?

That our wickedness and our names are even allowed to pass into His HOLY thoughts is astounding.

Who am I to be apart of His conscious?

When Perfect Holiness comes in contact with imperfection the darkness flees. Every time.

So how is that we are not consumed?
Lamentations 3:22 Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.
This is no small thing.

God is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent.  He is all powerful, all knowing and all present.  Just because we don't see God in the room, doesn't mean He is not fully present in every atom of His creation.

There is not a molecule that He does not hold in His hand and say mine.  Every thought, motive and action are His.
2 Corinthians 10:5
We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ,
God is not bound by time.  He created time.  He is the author of E=MC squared.

It seems to me that perhaps God chose to wrap us in time, in order to protect us, at least temporarily from His justice.

In the great expanse of everlasting to everlasting, God created a small sliver called time and in it His perfect justice was stayed for a vapor, a moment.  In this moment we call world history God spoke the creation.  He created us in His image.

He brought perfect 100% HOLY DIVINITY into 100% PURE HUMANITY and Jesus who was and is and is to come, who is the Logos, God with us, who was with God in the beginning became simultaneously and fully man.

In His Diety and humanity He bore our sins and by His stripes we are healed.
1 Peter 2:24
and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed
People often complain about time.  In my prison ministry you hear is constantly. I hope I get my back time? I can't wait to get out of here.

Ordinary people everywhere can't wait until 5 o'clock or quitting time on Friday or football season or the ending of football season.  The start of school.  The end of school.  When I get a job.  When I leave this job. When I get married.  When I get out of this marriage.  When I can have high enough credit score.  When I can be debt free.  When I buy a boat.  When I sell a boat.

It seems we never have enough time and the time we have we don't like.

Time is a great and wondrous miracle..

If God had ended time as soldiers wept in fox holes in the black forest of world war II and begged for His return, your out.  Of if as Job wrestled with God, He returned.  If as He said to Noah, I am grieved that I made man - he took them all out, including those last 8.

Those families and children in Iraq being crucified and decapitated in Iraq are begging for His return.

It is only by God's dear mercies that any of us have come to know Him.  He in His wrath and righteousness and justice should have come back as the LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH and KING OF KINGS long ago (and make no mistake He will).  He should have never even conceived of the whole wretched mess of us, but He did.  Love does that.

Time is a great friend.  It is also a cruel companion, for when it is over, it is over.
2 Peter 3:9 (NASB)
The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.
Isaiah 55:6
Seek the Lord while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near.
The sad truth is that we are poor stewards of the time we are given and by all indications for all of us, Time's up!

His judgement is at the door.

Either your about to be snatched out of time's way or you are about to go through the longest 7 years in all the history of history both now and forever.  Although apparently 2 out of 3 won't have enough time and will be killed during this horror.

Be ready.

If you know Him, praise Him that you have one more day to be transformed into the image of the son (1 John 3:1-3, Romans 8:29, John 17) and one more day to do the work He gave us to do Ephesians 2:10, Matthew 28:18-20.

Maranatha!


The last pope?


I haven't put too much stock in the St. Malachy prophecy, although I find it interesting and seems to align with the scores of other end of the age signs.

Saw these two headlines today, hum...

St. Malachy

3 members of the family of Pope Francis - killed

Pope declares he has only 2-3 more years to live

If he is the false prophet he might just be right.  I pray that this is not true.

Maranatha.

The alignment is in full swing.

Nixon + 40

Is it just me or is it odd that the Ferguson Missouri shooting was 40 years to the day after President Nixon resigned?

Now there is a Governor Nixon trying to hold the state together.

Odd really in 1974 the confidence in the country was forever shaken.

40 years later confidence at the local level is rocked.

Link

I would appreciate your feedback on this question.  Without the rapture and the millennial reign is this world lost in the short run? (less than 10 years)

Given the debt the US is piling up and the integrated one world economy and of course the ecologic, social, political collapse + the radicals I say definitely.

If so, God is surely coming for His bride soon.

My Soul Thirsts - Scott Cunningham


Video

No hope left in this world.  Check mate.  Collapse.  Destruction.  Persecution.  Disease.  Flooding.  Drought.  Fire.  Radiation.  Starvation.  War.  God ridiculed.  His covenants ignored.

I am ready to be in His presence.

Let me be about the work that He has for me when He returns Eph 2:10

Unsustainable


Many of our posts have been to highlight ecologic or economic disasters or pending disasters that emphasis the clear warning of Christ's soon return, in that these warnings clearly indicate that life on this planet is unsustainable in the very near term.

The goal is not to spread doom, but for people to realize the dire situation, understand God's warning, accept Him as God, surrender the rule of their lives to God and be saved from the soon coming wrath.

A few stories from today's headlines that highlight this point:

Coal Ash

Salmon

Fukushima - reactor #3 worse than previously thought.  How can it get much worse?  3 complete reactor meltdowns.  4 reactors any of which could cause an apocalyptic chain reaction.  Radioactive contamination pour into the Pacific 24x7x365 by the thousands of tons.

If these are true or any of the hundreds of others we have highlighted in the scores of posts that follow, life on the planet must end soon.  If so and if you are a Christ follower you should have great peace and joy.  If not, you should sober up and repent.  We are out of time.

Human Wisdom and God's Sovereign Omnipotence


Ann Coulter blasted Dr. Ken Brantley for his idiocy for going and staying in a third world Ebola infested west African nation and for Samaritans purse for spending $2 million dollars to come get him.

In her comments here she gives all of her sterile well considered apologetic for her position.  While there have been many occasions when I have felt great affiliation and agreement in her sentiments, in this case I believe she is misguided.

I agree that this is a terribly expensive rescue and those monies might have been used for more good.  At the same time she and others rail at Obama Care for the old age committees and the best use of health care dollars, while condemning those that made every effort to save one.

In Dr. Kent's comments recently he is quoted as saying here:
“My wife Amber and I, along with our two children, did not move to Liberia for the specific purpose of fighting Ebola. We went to Liberia because we believe God called us to serve Him at ELWA Hospital.
Might that money have been used more effectively for a larger good, of course.  Is Dr. Kent responsible for his choices - yes.  Should extraordinary methods have been used?  This is again a great component of the larger healthcare debate.  Does the state have a right to dictate how much is too much and who will live and die?  Do the American people have the right to set their level of taxation based on the cost of treatment?

You may not agree with the economic decision, but to call Dr. Brantley's professed obedience to God's directive idotic, is another thing entirely.

--

I am spun up about this today, because a coworker at lunch today, suggested Israel should just get out of the way, no one wants them over there and they should all move to Florida.

No one on the planet may want them there, but there is One who created every inch of that land and who gave every inch to His covenant people the Jewish Nation of Israel.

If I quote anyone I'll quote The Creator of Heaven and Earth here:

Genesis 12 
The Lord had said to Abram, “Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you. I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others. I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you.”
1 Corinthians 13 tells us that knowledge will pass away.  It seems to me that it is happening now.  On Tuesday night I heard Dave Ramsey, a faithful Christian man, tell a young man to take a windfall and invest for the future.  Misguided wouldn't you say?  It is the end of the end of the end.  We're leaving, while the stock market creeps higher, the U.S. bombs ISIS in Iraq with no clue who is who in God's covenant land.  The U.S. threatens Russia.  Haven't seen America with any noteworthy mention in end times prophecy.  By the looks of things she won't be here, see also Jonathan Cahn, Isaiah 9:10, 9/11 + Stock crash of 2008 + 2015 (23rd of Elul) is just over a year away.

All venting aside I am convinced that we are at the very end.  Probably in the next few weeks, but of course no one knows the day or the hour and certainly God's grace, mercy and exceeding patience do not quickly reach their full measure:

2 Peter 3:9
The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.

It seems to me if the dark forces would leave Israel and the Church alone they would have a better time of it. They'll get free reign for seven years, but then it is over.

Revelation 12:12 (NLT)
Therefore, rejoice, O heavens!
    And you who live in the heavens, rejoice!
But terror will come on the earth and the sea,
    for the devil has come down to you in great anger,
    knowing that he has little time.”




HIGH WATCH ALERT: SUNDAY - MONDAY (Tu B'Av)

Called the greatest festival in Judaism, the "Valentine's Day" of Israel, the most mysterious Jewish holiday, and the "festival of Future Redemption".  I had not heard about this festival until only a few months ago, but what I learned blew me away:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tu_B'Av

http://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/53680/jewish/15th-of-Av.htm

Symbolic of the rapture in at least three key ways:

1.) Jewish virgin girls would wear white linen (that they borrowed) and go out into the vineyards dancing and waiting for a groom to pick them.  If this doesn't sound like us, the Bride of Christ, clean because we are wearing the borrowed righteousness of Christ, and awaiting our groom to steal us away... I don't know what does!

2.) According to tradition, on this date each year during the 40 years of the Israelites in the wilderness, Moses had many of the people dig their own graves and sleep in them.  The next morning they would rise out of the grave symbolizing the resurrection and permittance to enter the Promised Land.

3.) "The Last Trump": the Hebrew calendar begins on Rosh Hashanah (usually overlaps with our Gregorian September).  In Judaism the trump is blown on each holiday and Tu B'Av would be the last trump before the new year starts next month.

4.) Tu B'Av is also called the "Festival of Wood-bearing" as it was a date appointed for bringing the wood offering into the Temple.  For believers, we bear the cross into the Holy of Holies... we offer the sacrifice of Christ as our atonement.

...And to top it all off... this Tu B'Av features a supermoon:

Congrats to Our Readers!

We have crossed the 300,000 visits mark... all thanks to our readers!  Onwards to half-a-million!  Let's spread the word that Jesus is coming soon!


Rise of the Empire of the Antichrist?

In light of what we see happening in Syria/Iraq, the "people of the prince who is to come" (Daniel 9:26-27), and Islamic end times eschatology (which seems to be a satanic inverse of Biblical/true eschatalogy)... could the newly restored Caliphate led by "Caliph Ibrahim" be the beginnings of the empire of the antichrist?



Is this man the antichrist, the false prophet, or a precursor?  Note that Abraham/"Ibrahim" is called the "father of all monotheistic religions".  Could he soon claim to be the Mahdi?

His caliphate now controls roughly half of Iraq and one-third of Syria and continues to make rapid advances, just two days ago taking control of Iraq's largest dam.  He is calling all Muslims in the world to obey and fight for him.  Also, he was born right in the heart of ancient Assyria--in some prophecy circles it is said that the antichrist is none other than "the Assyrian".  It is also said the "people of the prince who is to come" were Syrians/Assyrians who actually destroyed Jerusalem and the temple in 70 AD.  General Titus was the leader and a Roman, but the actual soldiers doing the dirty work were the ancestors of none other than Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
