The Hour is Late – It’s Now Time to Get Serious With God!

Do You Really Know God?

He Doesn’t Play Church but He Does Know Your Heart

“They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.” -Psalm 14:3 (KJV)

Time is growing short and it seems that this world is now on a course for destruction and the loss of many lives. All the more reason for all of us to get serious with God. The time for playing around has ended now it’s get right time.

We live in a rapidly changing world, a world now filled with all kinds of unrest, danger, turmoil, evil and wickedness. Nations are against nations and kingdoms against kingdoms. Deception is rampant and many are being deceived and caught up in its web. Daily we read how death stalks the halls of this life and it knows not those that it takes. Suicide bombings and shootings are becoming more widespread and more frequent. The weather is nothing but over the top now – severe in every form now.

Wars are occurring all over the globe – currently there are 67 countries engaged in war. Reading, hearing and seeing of the gloom and doom news each day is saddening and very negative.  Extreme weather is attacking this earth with fervor and ferocity – floods envelope many nations and people are dying. Mega-wildfires plague America’s western states; peoples homes are being burned up by the thousands. Friends, the news is not good and when you consider all the events ramping up in light of Bible Prophecy and the last days before Christ’s return, the hour is late, very late indeed!

“The Lord is slow to anger and great in power, and the Lord will by no means clear the guilty. His way is in whirlwind and storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.” -Nahum 1:3 (ESV)

As I have written many times in this blog, sin is enmity against Almighty God and results in outright rejection of Him and His laws. In fact, it’s this rejection that is destroying the earth – Jer 9:12-14. Peoples hearts are becoming harder and harder. Mankind has and is now with rapidity turning away from the God of the Bible, yes, even in our Christian churches where people aren’t confronted with their sin, don’t know Him and have little fear of Him. Why? Because they are not being taught. People-pleasing pastors and priests are steering many right into the depths of hell. 

You see, the sheer reality of our short life span here on earth is that we are faced with eternity every minute of every day.

There are no guarantees of one more breath or one more heartbeat. So we must be ready to meet our God at anytime; yes, the rapture of the church is coming and the terrible Tribulation times are on the way but what about today, right now; what about you? What if your name was called from God’s heavenly throne to stand before Him today? Would you be ready, would you be right with Him?

These are serious and in-your-face questions, no doubt. But really have you stopped or pressed the pause on your fast-paced life to consider them?

The people slaughtered in the nations listed above most likely didn’t know they would die on that particular day. How much more do we born-again, Bible-believing Christians need to be ready to meet the Lord? But what about those that are on a joy ride in this life – the unbelievers, the skeptics, the mockers, the profane and unholy? Perhaps some of you reading this today fall into one of those categories. Maybe you are just ‘playing’ with God and have one foot in the world and one foot in Christianity or religiosity and play Churchianity. You know who you are. Listen now, you had better be right with Almighty God before you step into eternity.

As you know I speak bluntly and to the point.  I don’t beat around the bush like so many of our pulpit pleasers do concerning the things of God. Remember, loving one another also means caring enough to confront people about their sin and relationship with with Jesus Christ. Eternity is a long time and many people today don’t care about it, don’t even think about it or are afraid to bring it into focus.

My point today is to ask you – are you right with God … right now? Almighty God is absolutely loving and kind and not wanting any to perish (2 Pet 3:9) but He also is serious: about unrepentant sin and the consequences of rejecting His Son – Jesus Christ – who He sent to pay the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. He also doesn’t play church and doesn’t even listen to insincere, artificial or fake worship.

But we must call upon Him, accept Him and profess His name. We must acknowledge our sins and repent of them daily. We must therefore live a holy dedicated life acceptable to Him. We must strive to stay on the narrow road that leads to life and not be found on the broad and wide road that leads to destruction. The hour is late and His coming draws nearer by the day. I have heard it said by many even non-Christians, that they feel something is about to happen that will cause great calamity upon mankind. What are you feeling?

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14- Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” -Matt 7:13-14 (KJV)

Please, I urge you to get right with God today. Do it right now; get down on your knees are pray professing the Lord Jesus as your Savior and then confess your sin and repent of it. Follow His instructions for becoming a Christian with the verses below. If you have backslid away from God, then ask Him to forgive you and repent of your sins (lifestyle) and return into His loving arms of grace and mercy. Today is the day of salvation; besides we have no assurances that tomorrow will even come for any of us. Friends, eternity without God, existing in the torments and flames of hell, is a long, endless time.

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10- For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” -Rom 10:9-10 (KJV)

Bible Prophecy Commentary: Weather Woes –

We just cannot go on denying that Almighty God is sending mankind a message. It’s time to get right with Him. Now is the time for tomorrow may never come. These weather woes are intensifying and evident on every continent. Prophecy is being fulfilled but who’s watching?

Listen to what the prophet Nahum wrote concerning the ancient nations of Nineveh and Israel. When a nation becomes continuously unfaithful watch out for His warnings and wrath. He will warn slowly at first and if no repentance is found the heavy hand of His judgment could be next. Where’s America and the rest of this sin-sick world at these days? They wallow in their sin and rejoice in their idols. We are headed for His wrath unless repentance is found. Confess your sins, repent of them, seek His face and live a holy life onto the Lord. Not Budda, not Allah, not the Pope, not any of those false gods. Follow Jesus the Christ – Yeshua. If not, then get ready and be prepared for more of His anger. Read Heb 13:8 and see if what He has done in the past He will not do in the future, meaning now and going forward. Shalom.

“The Lord is slow to anger and great in power,
and the Lord will by no means clear the guilty.
His way is in whirlwind and storm,
and the clouds are the dust of his feet.
4- He rebukes the sea and makes it dry;
he dries up all the rivers;
Bashan and Carmel wither;
the bloom of Lebanon withers.
5- The mountains quake before him;
the hills melt; the earth heaves before him,
the world and all who dwell in it.” -Nahum 1:3-5 (ESV)

And in the Book of Amos:

“And I also have given you cleanness of teeth in all your cities, and want of bread in all your places: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the Lord.

7- And also I have withholden the rain from you, when there were yet three months to the harvest: and I caused it to rain upon one city, and caused it not to rain upon another city: one piece was rained upon, and the piece whereupon it rained not withered.

8- So two or three cities wandered unto one city, to drink water; but they were not satisfied: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the Lord.

9- I have smitten you with blasting and mildew: when your gardens and your vineyards and your fig trees and your olive trees increased, the palmerworm devoured them: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the Lord.

10- I have sent among you the pestilence after the manner of Egypt: your young men have I slain with the sword, and have taken away your horses; and I have made the stink of your camps to come up unto your nostrils: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the Lord.

11- I have overthrown some of you, as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, and ye were as a firebrand plucked out of the burning: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the Lord.

12- Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel: and because I will do this unto thee, prepare to meet thy God, O Israel.” -Amos 4:6-12 (KJV)

Will the Disastrous and Growing Trade War Between the US and China Start A Shooting War?

An Absolutely Epic Escalation Of The Trade War Has Us On The Precipice Of A Cataclysmic Global Economic Crisis

By Michael Snyder in July, 2018

If Americans really understood how much their standard of living was about to change, the streets of our major cities would be packed with protesters by tomorrow morning.  For the past several decades, China and other low cost exporters have been flooding our shores with hundreds of billions of dollars worth of cheap goods.  This is the only reason why you can go to Wal-Mart and buy a shirt for three bucks.  But since we buy far more stuff from the rest of the world than they buy from us, we ultimately have to go back to those other nations and beg them to lend our money back to us so that we can pay our bills.  This sick, twisted co-dependent relationship has enabled Americans to live a debt-fueled standard of living that is far beyond what we deserve, and now our rapidly escalating trade war with China is going to bring the party to a crashing halt.  On Tuesday, the Trump administration released a list of $200,000,000,000 worth of Chinese exports that will be hit with 10 percent tariffs.  Those tariffs are in addition to the 25 percent tariffs that had previously been announced on 50 billion dollars worth of Chinese exports.  These new tariffs are scheduled to go into effect on August 30th, and the Chinese have already pledged to retaliate.

In essence, our trade war with China has now “gone nuclear”, and this is going to have extremely serious implications for the U.S. economy.  The following is a short excerpt from the statement that U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer released about these new tariffs…

On Friday, in response to unfair Chinese practices, the United States began imposing tariffs of 25 percent on approximately $34 billion worth of Chinese imports. These tariffs will eventually cover up to $50 billion in Chinese imports as legal processes conclude. The products targeted by the tariffs are those that benefit from China’s industrial policy and forced technology transfer practices.

China has since retaliated against the United States by imposing tariffs on $34 billion in U.S. exports to China, and threatening tariffs on another $16 billion. It did this without any international legal basis or justification.

As a result of China’s retaliation and failure to change its practices, the President has ordered USTR to begin the process of imposing tariffs of 10 percent on an additional $200 billion of Chinese imports. This is an appropriate response under the authority of Section 301 to obtain the elimination of China’s harmful industrial policies.

Without a doubt, something needed to be done about China’s unfair trade practices.  The Chinese manipulate currency rates, they impose very high tariffs on U.S. goods, and they have been stealing our intellectual property for decades.

But it is very unlikely that anyone is going to “win” this trade war, and in the short-term all it is going to mean is a whole lot of economic and financial pain.

According to Politico, the new tariff list that was just released hits a very broad range of products…

The new tariff list broadens the types of goods caught up in the trade war by targeting items like seafood, minerals, chemicals, and personal care items, such as shampoo and soap. It also includes a number of consumer products such as handbags, luggage, gloves and paper.

Do you buy any of those things?

Well, expect to pay significantly more in the not too distant future.

When compiling this new list, the Trump administration specifically “took into account what could cause disruptions to China’s economy”.  The following comes from CNBC
