On the morning of March 17 when I entered quiet time the Lord directed me to Jeremiah 25:29-33. Have you sensed the change in the spiritual atmosphere in the earth? I believe many are wondering what is going on. It’s like a switch has been thrown and now the world is in such chaos. The Mideast political changes are occurring right before our eyes preparing the way for the one world leader to come forth at his appointed time.
The earth is shaking with great intensity causing many to stop and think…what if that happened to my city? What would I do? Literally, the earth has tottered on its axis even to the point of slowing down in time as it wobbles from the impact of these powerful earthquakes. The geographical location of the North Pole has moved several meters from recent geological events like the December 26, 2004 Malaysian earthquake which generated a massive tsunami killing a quarter million or more people.
“The earth reels to and fro like a drunkard And it totters like a shack, For its transgression is heavy upon it, And it will fall, never to rise again.” ?Isa. 24:30
It’s difficult to watch the suffering which has been ongoing in the earth and to what purpose do these things happening? We are closer to the coming of the Lord than most people think. World events are happening simultaneously and in ever increasing severity, but again to what purpose?
Is God trying to get a lost and dying earth’s attention? I think so. I will share a revelation on the time of the Lord’s return which He showed me in 2001 in my next blog.
I couldn’t help but notice the headlines in one of the major online news websites the day after the powerful earthquake which hit Christchurch, New Zealand. The headline read “Christchurch in ruins”. Did you miss it church? Jesus spoke of a generation at the time of his return which will lack understanding of the signs of times or choose to ignore then hoping things will get better.
“For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah.”For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be. Mat. 24: 37-39
Cognitive dissonance is an interesting study which helps explain how human nature deals with tragic world events. Important research generated by the theory has been concerned with the consequences of exposure to information inconsistent with a prior belief, what happens after individuals act in ways that are inconsistent with their prior attitudes, what happens after individuals make decisions, and the effects of effort expenditure.
In other words we as humans would rather ignore the problem, make excuses, hope it will not happen to us, find fault, criticize things or events that don’t match up to our prior beliefs about said things. To read more on Cognitive dissonance
We must humble ourselves before God and allow Him (Holy Spirit our teacher) to show us the truth no matter what theology we have been indoctrinated in. Remember, God opposes the proud but gives such grace and mercy to the humble.
On the eve of 2011, I had such an ominous sense of dread to enter the New Year. It is proving out to be a difficult year on the earth but nothing like what is coming in the next few years. The Lord showed me these verses below and I tell you it’s time for the nations to repent and turn to God. Time is running out to do so. The prophetic clock is ticking down…tick, tick, tick…
“For behold, I am beginning to work calamity in this city which is called by My name, and shall you be completely free from punishment? You will not be free from punishment; for I am summoning a sword against all the inhabitants of the earth,” declares the LORD of hosts.’ V.29
“Therefore you shall prophesy against them all these words, and you shall say to them, ‘The LORD will roar from on high And utter His voice from His holy habitation; He will roar mightily against His fold. He will shout like those who tread the grapes, Against all the inhabitants of the earth. V.30
‘A clamor has come to the end of the earth, Because the LORD has a controversy with the nations. He is entering into judgment with all flesh; As for the wicked, He has given them to the sword,’ declares the LORD.” V.31
Thus says the LORD of hosts, “Behold, evil is going forth From nation to nation, And a great storm is being stirred up From the remotest parts of the earth. V.32
“Those slain by the LORD on that day will be from one end of the earth to the other. They will not be lamented, gathered or buried; they will be like dung on the face of the ground. V.33
