His Grace is Enough

I've been reminded throughout the week that His grace is enough.  I'm reminded that He is not in need of a reminder to come and protect His children from harm.  From the foundation of the world we have been sealed, our names are in His book and we are His.  His arm is not too short and He can be trusted.  His going forth is as certain as the dawn.

This weekend Corpus (Corporate-Body of) Christi (Christ) was  invaded by raging seas, flooding and man-eating predators.  In this case alligators.  Something of a sign of what is coming.

In the midst of the storm, we are reminded of His unfailing love.





He will revive us after two days;
He will raise us up on the third day,
That we may live before Him.
So let us know, let us press on to know the Lord.
His going forth is as certain as the dawn;
And He will come to us like the rain,
Like the spring rain watering the earth.
- Hosea 6:2-3


God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change
And though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea;
Though its waters roar and foam,
Though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. Selah.
- Psalms 46:1-3


'For the mountains may be removed and the hills may shake, But My lovingkindness will not be removed from you, And My covenant of peace will not be shaken,' Says the LORD who has compassion on you.
Isaiah 54:10




Great is your faithfulness oh God of Jacob
You wrestle with the sinner's wrestless heart
You lead us by still waters into mercy
When nothing can keep us apart
So remember your people
Remember your children
Remember your promise, oh God
For Your grace is enough
Yeah Your grace is enough
Yeah Your grace is enough
Yeah Your grace is enough for me
Great is your love and justice God of Jacob
You use the weak to lead the strong
You lead us in the song of heaven's victory
And all your people sing along
So remember your people
Remember your children
Remember your promise, oh God
For Your grace is enough
Yeah Your grace is enough
Yeah Your grace is enough
Yeah Your grace is enough
For Your grace is enough
Yeah Your grace is enough


Odd that as I write this article few are concerned, yet if they knew what was coming they would be.  If they knew who was about to be cast down and the fury and persecution that was coming fear would take hold of them.  Think of Yoda's famous quip in response to Luke's assertion that he wasn't afraid, "you will be."

Though the heavens roar, the angel armies war and satan is cast down to devour us, God is faithful.  He is true.  He can be trusted and we are sealed in Him.  Unshakable.  Unmovable.  Sealed.  Secure. Made to hide in the cleft of the rock.




We the body may argue every point of theology and certainly eschatology, yet the majority who come here are not in the least bit shaken that the heavens are roaring, the seas rage, the nations war, the economies collapse, that good is called evil, evil is called good, a great war in heaven is breaking out, demons are about to be cast to the earth, the tribulation is about to begin, the seals are about to be opened, the Time of Jacob's trouble is upon us, signs and wonders are everywhere, death, destruction and blasphemy are abundant.  Yet we the Bride are steady.

Stunning if you think about it, that those who are watching and have been given the gift to understand the great lateness of the hour can stand firm in peace and confidence.

We can meet Him with confident assurance of faith and we can come back seven years later to a world that is in absolute chaos, filled with demons and we can be unflinching.

For as many as are the promises of God, in Him they are yes; therefore also through Him is our Amen to the glory of God through us. Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and anointed us is God, who also sealed us and gave us the Spirit in our hearts as a pledge.
- 2 Corinthians 2:20-22


Now He who prepared us for this very purpose is God, who gave to us the Spirit as a pledge.
- 2 Corinthians 5:5


In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation—having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory.
- Ephesians 1:13-14


O our God, will You not judge them?  For we are powerless before this great multitude who are coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are on You.
2 Chronicles 20:12


Beautiful and wise prayer in 2 Chronicles 20 and this passage reminds me of the present occasion when God's chosen are about to be overrun, but God will give the victory.

Verses 14-10 go on to describe what happened next.

Then in the midst of the assembly the Spirit of the Lord came upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, the Levite of the sons of Asaph; and he said, “Listen, all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem and King Jehoshaphat: thus says the Lord to you, ‘Do not fear or be dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours but God’s. Tomorrow go down against them. Behold, they will come up by the ascent of Ziz, and you will find them at the end of the valley in front of the wilderness of Jeruel. You need not fight in this battle; station yourselves, stand and see the salvation of the Lord on your behalf, O Judah and Jerusalem.’ Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out to face them, for the Lord is with you.”

Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground, and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell down before the Lord, worshiping the Lord. The Levites, from the sons of the Kohathites and of the sons of the Korahites, stood up to praise the Lord God of Israel, with a very loud voice.

Verses 14-15 tell us that God's answer essentially came from an unknown source.  This wasn't Moses, Elijah, David, Ezekiel, Daniel, Isaiah, Jeremiah or other known and trusted sources, but from an unknown.  Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, the Levite of the sons of Asaph.. In other words, an unknown - a nobody.  Interesting in these last days once again, God is telling us not to worry, the solution is coming.  We can stand in front of our enemies, but the affirmation is coming from unknowns like Adam, Barry, Brad, Daniel, Gary, Greg, Jeff, Sam, Scott and others.

God is unchanging.  He can be counted on.  We can rest in Him.



Dear Lord,

It is what appears to be the last moments of the Church Age, just prior to the tribulation, and we acknowledge that we don't know what to do, but our eyes are on You.

If you don't rescue, we are in serious trouble, yet we are confident that you will save and you are coming.

We approach the day with great anticipation and joy.

We Love You,
The Bride

  5. I think that if I didn't believe in Jesus, I would be seriously freaking out right now... if I had even survived to this point. (Only the Lord knows when and if He has intervened to save my life at many points in my journey... But there was many points where it might have happened...)

  7. Our times are in His hands, all we have to do is act upon the Word spoken to us as we work out our own salvation. His thoughts are for our welfare and not to harm us. Praise God for our loving Saviour Jesus.

  8. Hey folks...

    Like Unsealed has their "Left Behind" tab/letter, I have also written a note/letter for my workplace and encourage everyone to do so as well.

    While I agree the Lord will fulfill the FoT on the appointed day(s) (Moed or Strong's 4150 from Gen 1:14), I am watchful for anyday/ anytime now...

    Let's remain active sharing/living the gospel until the end of the age (i.e., Church Age).

  9. Gary, thank you! 2 Corinthians 12:9 as old calendar sheet pinned on my memo board in the kitchen, I can see and read it daily to remember!! :)

    Did you know that 'Harvey' hit TX even in the same HOUR when the Trump/Kushner team was meeting with the Israeli and Palestinian leaders for the "peace deal"? Abbas has set an ultimatum until October to negotiate a 2-state solution. https://biblicalsignsintheheadlines.com/2017/08/25/1st-judgment-falls-on-same-day-trump-renews-israeli-palestinian-peace-push-u-s-hurricane-forms/

    This kind of judgement clearly BEGINS at the house of God but He will deliver us soon from all this I am sure. Even in the middle of judgements on the Egyptians there was always light in the place of His children. Be of good cheer! MARANATHA! :)

  11. Hey, and I just heard a reporter on (YouTube Livestream) CBSN saying that 'Harvey' was called a "500 years' storm" - now that makes me think of the Reformation in 1517 just being celebrated but in fact totally corrupted in church now by this year...

    1. It is now being calculated in some areas as an 800 year storm. They are unable to project what may happen as some of the rivers rise to that 800 year level and have taken a wait and see position forcing some to leave with mandatory evacuation and urging others to evacuate those areas by choice.

      PRAISE REPORT:
      I live in Colorado County, Columbus, TX and my extended family lives in Harris County, Pasadena, TX. Jesus has kept us safe in His Hands...Thank You Jesus!

    3. Annabel...Thank You for edifying me with scripture and lifting me up with your love! With the Love of Jesus...Your sistr in Christ...Karen

      UPDATE:
      They are now referring to this as a 1000 year storm.

  12. This website is my new favorite! I have a question for Gary and everyone on here. I see the birth pangs of the tribulation beginning September 9 when Jupiter moves past Spica into the birth canal for exactly two weeks of labor. There are several verses in the OT and NT about labor pains, woman in labor, or birth pangs. One would be Jeremiah 49:24 talking about the judgment on Damascus. Others would be the seas roaring/tsunamis and major earthquakes (Luke 21:25). I think God has given us a picture of how long the birth pangs will last until the baby is born. Does this sound reasonable?

    My second question is about an outpouring of the Holy Spirit prior to the rapture. I have been waiting and praying for this, and we are now 26 days away from the sign and only 24 days from FoT. Jesus poured out the Holy Spirit 10 days after Jesus left. I'm thinking He may pour out His Spirit 10 days before He comes back, or somewhere around Sept. 11-13. This would maybe be a couple of days after the major birth pangs begin (Houston is a Braxton-Hicks contraction, so to speak, in my opinion). Does this resonate with anyone?

    Lastly, I think we all need to step up our warning to people and become the servants of Luke 14:23 and Matthew 22:10 and compel people to come to the Feast.

    1. The HS being "poured out upon all flesh" was partly (!!) fulfilled on Pentecost but will only be completed for ISRAEL at the end of tribulation period / beginning of the millennium when Zechariah 12:10-14 such as Isaiah 11:9 and Habakkuk 2:14 will come to pass. Blessings! :)

  13. This is a beautiful post. Made me cry! Thank you for strengthening the Body by reminding us of His precious promises.

  14. Guys this is my first comment here! I hope you are all richly blessed in Yahushua! I learned that the movie with Bruce Lee called "the birth of the Dragon" came out the same day as Hurricane Harvey hit Texas just after 11 p.m. (11 is the number for death and destruction). Also with Jupiter being born on 9/9/2017 (nine is the number for judgment and and an end of a matter) I believe we are being told that the revealing of the antichrist is quite soon and we need to be ready. Get ready also for the Christ Angle 26.3 degree alignment taking place in Egypt over the Great Pyramid on 9/20/2017. Some of the cast of "characters" include the planet Venus and Orion both significant to us as the bride and the occult dark side. Big things are happening and coming! I look forward to discussing with my fellow brothers and sisters in Yahushua! Found in Him, Revelation 19:7

  15. There are times I know I'm hanging by a thread.. then the Father allows me to find encouragement not only through his word but through my brothers and sisters as well.. and the thread thickens.. thanks so much

  16. There is no doubt this storm is being tampered with by powerful technologies. Do you see this thing move up and about? The treaties from the 1970's on the UN website tell me so! Imagine what they have today.

    May God damn those are behind this storm to a scorching and burning fire.
