Ready or Not? Here I Come!

One will be taken, another left…

This is My plea–come awaken with Me!

Choose this time, as you think of My birth, to ‘re-birth’ your life.

  • What is missing?
  • What haven’t you accomplished?
  • Where are you going, and where are you now?

Examine the timeline of your life.

I haven’t changed. Have you?

“As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of man. for as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they did not know until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of man. Then two men will be in the field; one is taken and one is left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one is taken and one is left. Watch therefore, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the householder had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have watched and would not have let his house be broken into. Therefore you also must be ready; for the Son of man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” Matthew 24:37-44

 

Readers, my first published book is now available–

‘Comfort In The Challenge’

“You don’t have to look far to find someone coping with a challenge. It may be a friend, co-worker, parent or child. Maybe you need only to look within. The list of trials in life is endless–the challenge within. But God knows the need, and He knows the heart of the one you love–He knows YOU!

‘Comfort in the Challenge’ is filled with messages spoken from the heart of God. Inside you will find that God loves you and He cares about you, personally, and what you care about matters to Him. He wants to take that care, in exchange, with His thoughts of Love, Hope, Healing, and Direction. He speaks to the need, He speaks to You, to bring you–‘Comfort In The Challenge.'”

All royalties for the life of this book will go directly to the ministry, Canaanland, of Autaugaville, Alabama. Canaanland, takes in men that have lost control of their lives to addiction and crime. Their tremendous (40 year) success rate has often prompted the judges of the surrounding area to offer, Canaanland, as an alternative to jail time. I have met some of these men and they are so full of joy that they absolutely shine–truly transformed by the love of God!

Canaanland charges nothing for a year stay; including room and board for their families as well, if necessary. I find the true dedication of Canaanland, in surrounding these men with love, and the life-changing power of the Word of God, to be unsurpassed. All is made possible through the dedication and hard work of these men, and generous donations of partner support.

It is their vision to have a ‘Canaanland’ in every state and my vision, for this book, to help them realize this goal. Will you join me in helping these men and their families receive a new life? Will you consider purchasing ‘Comfort in the Challenge’ for your friends, loved ones and yourself–for Christmas? The books are beautiful and I am over-the-top excited for you to receive yours!

Prepared and Stunning!

Division must come.

A greater division than man has known since the days of Noah. As then, when there was eating and drinking and marrying and giving in marriage–life carried on and those who would not heed, did not hear.

“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they did not know until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of man.” Matthew 24:36-39

“Then the Lord said to Noah, ‘Go into the ark, you and all your household, for I have seen that you are righteous before me in this generation.'” Genesis 7:1

“He blotted out every living thing that was upon the face of the ground, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the air; they were blotted out from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those that were with him in the ark.” Genesis 7:23

They had not a care, for they did not fear.

The righteous, however, sense it in their heart, and know they have a part, in the greatest and final act that man, on this earth, will ever know…

When I come once more to gather My Bride.

Oh, she’ll be stunning, for she’ll be prepared. A bride doesn’t wait for the hour late–she readies herself in advance.

Yes, division will come; for the invitations have been sent–as all are invited to come.

“Let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his Bride has made herself ready; it was granted her to be clothed with fine linen, bright and pure”–for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints. And the angel said to me, ‘Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, ‘These are true words of God.'”Revelation 19:7-9

 Those received, went to them who believe, the rest went untouched as if dung.

“‘The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a marriage feast for his son, and sent his servants to call those who were invited to the marriage feast; but they would not come.” Matthew 23:2-3

“Again he sent other servants, saying ‘Tell those who are invited, Behold, I have made ready my dinner, my oxen and my fat calves are killed, and everything is ready; come to the marriage feast.’ But they made light of it and went off, one to his farm, another to his business–” Matthew 22:4-5

“Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding is ready, but those invited were not worthy. Go therefore to the thoroughfares, and invite to the marriage feast as many as you find.’ And those servants went out into the streets and gathered all whom they found, both bad and good; so the wedding hall was filled with guests.” Matthew 22:8-10

My heart breaks for those left without, clothes, to enter the Bridal feast ready.

“But when the king came in to look at the guests, he saw there a man who had no wedding garment; and he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless. Then the king said to the attendants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, and cast him into the outer darkness; there men will weep and gnash their teeth.’ for many are called, but few are chosen.'” Matthew 22:11-14

For soon it will be, too late to prepare, and gain entrance to the Wedding of the Lamb.

He is the feast, and it’s not the beast, as so many fools have supposed. So hurry–while there’s time, for you to change your mind. But hurry, before the doors close!

Prepare to be Stunning, or prepare to be stunned!

And the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who in its presence had worked the signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped its image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with brimstone.” Revelation 19:20

“‘Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense, to repay every one for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.’ Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates.” Revelation 22:12-14

The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come.’ And let him who is thirsty come, let him who desires take the water of life without price.” Revelation 22:17

 

The Open Door

Do you have the faith of Abraham?

Abraham believed against all hope a promise I had given, when all flesh shouted impossible.

“For when God made a promise to Abraham, since he had no one greater by whom to swear, he swore by himself, saying, ‘Surely I will bless you and multiply you.’ And thus Abraham, having patiently endured, obtained the promise.” Hebrews 6:13-15

“By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place which he was to receive as an inheritance; and he went out, not knowing where he was to go.” Hebrews 11:8

“By faith Sarah herself received power to conceive, even when she was past the age, since she considered him faithful who had promised. Therefore from one man, and him as good as dead, were born descendants as many as the stars of heaven and as the innumerable grains of sand by the seashore.” Hebrews 11:8, 11-12

Do you have the faith of Noah?

Noah continued to believe, when no one would receive, the message he’d been given. He built an ark facing a lifetime of mockery, ridicule and shame, but simply believed.

“By faith Noah, being warned by God concerning events as yet unseen, took heed and constructed an ark for the saving of his household; by this he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness which comes by faith.” Hebrews 11:7

“He (God) blotted out every living thing that was upon the face of the ground, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the air; they were blotted out from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those that were with him in the ark.” Genesis 7:23

“And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.” Genesis 9:1

Do you have the faith of Paul?

He stood against tradition and all he had been taught; faced all who’d hated him for what he had wrought. A man who would stand and testify of Me. Though flogged and beaten, he faced it with joy, for he believed in a greater promise–he believed in Me.

“The crowd joined in attacking them (Paul and Silas); and the magistrates tore the garments off them and gave orders to beat them with rods. And when they had inflicted many blows upon them, they threw them into prison, charging the jailer to keep them safely. Having received this charge, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks.

But about midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them, and suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and every one’s fetters were unfastened.” Acts 16:22-27

“And God did extraordinary miracles by the hands of Paul, so that handkerchiefs or aprons were carried away from his body to the sick, and diseases left them and the evil spirits came out of them.” Acts 19:11-12

They all believed, along with countless others who stood the test of time.

Do you believe or do you waver when things don’t happen as you expect? Open My Word and reflect, on the faith of those gone before. My faithful ones who’ve opened the door for you to receive–faith.

“Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God; consider the outcome of their life, and imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and for ever.” Hebrews 13:7-8

It’s not about time, for My time is endless and I AM the one that must follow through, for the promises found in My Word to be True.

If you believe.

It’s not yours to deliver, that’s the work of the Giver, but to trust and receive…

If you believe.

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted.” Hebrews 12:1-3

“–‘I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?'” John 11:25-26

“Examine yourselves, to see whether you are holding to your faith. Test yourselves. Do you not realize that Jesus Christ is in you?–unless indeed you fail to meet the test!” II Corinthians 13:5
