There is a great stirring of My people across the land; an agitated enemy arising to face those who serve the Lamb in a final attempt to bring fear and destruction. Those who know My Word have no fear–their destination is clear and they will not be thwarted nor derailed.
This is not a time for a child to continue on milk and soft foods.
You must be weaned quickly for, as the days grow colder, the chill in the air foretells of an increasing coldness in the hearts of man.
“And because wickedness is multiplied, most men’s love will grow cold. But he who endures to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, as a testimony to all nations; and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:12-14
The time has come for sides to be drawn.
Intermingling will not be tolerated, for as the days of the times wax shorter, it is expedient that all declare allegiance to the God they serve, or it will be the ‘god’ they serve. A somber note for a generation adept at avoiding the Truth.
Salt is good, but if it has lost it’s saltiness, of what use is it but to be thrown out and trampled on by men.
“You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trodden under foot by men.” Matthew 5:13
You must find your place; be seasoned in Grace, as these latter days wind to an end.
“Conduct yourselves wisely toward outsiders, making the most of the time. Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer every one.” Colossians 4:5-6
But you, My friend, are hidden from My Face–the wrath that must take place–the judgment to come upon all. For those who have found their place, set apart from the human race, are royal destiny awaiting the Throne.
“Then the kings of the earth and the great men and the generals and the rich and the strong, and every one, slave and free, hid in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains, calling to the mountains and rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who is seated on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; for the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand before it?'” Revelation 6:15-17
Take a side–choose to abide.
“Then those who feared the Lord spoke with one another; the Lord heeded and heard them, and a book of remembrance was written before him of those who feared the Lord and thought on his name. ‘They shall be mine, says the Lord of host, my special possession on the day when I act, and I will spare them as a man spares his son who serves him. Then once more you shall distinguish between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve him.” Malachi 3:16-18
“‘For behold, the day comes burning like an oven, when all the arrogant and all evildoers will be stubble; the day that comes shall burn them up, says the Lord of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch. But for you who fear my name the sun of righteousness shall rise, with healing in its wings. You shall go forth leaping like calves from the stall. And you shall tread down the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet, on the day when I act, says the Lord of hosts.” Malachi 4:1-3
“But you are not in darkness, brethren, for that day to surprise you like a thief. For you are all sons of light and sons of the day; we are not of the night or of darkness. So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober.” I Thessalonians 5:4-6
“For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we wake or sleep we might live with him.” I Thessalonians 5:9-10
“And now, little children, abide in him, so that when he appears we may have confidence and not shrink from him in shame at his coming. If you know that he is righteous, you may be sure that every one who does right is born of him.” I John 2:28-29
“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High, who abides in the shadow of the Almighty, will say to the Lord, ‘My refuge and my fortress; my God, in whom I trust.'” Psalms 91:1-2
“Because he cleaves to me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows my name. When he calls to me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will rescue him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, and show him my salvation.” Psalms 91:14-16
