WARNING! – Stay Alert, and Keep Watch! Do Not Be Found Sleeping!

Stay Alert and Keep Watch!

“Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. 34- For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. 35- Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: 36- Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. 37- And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.” -Mark 13:33-37 (KJV)

These were commands from our Lord. They are not optional. They are to be heeded and followed but how many have thrown them aside for their own wisdom and intelligence?

Some have video cameras installed inside and outside their homes/business to provide as it were a constant sentinel that stands watch over their homes or businesses.  They have installed these to keep watch over their stuff and be ready to be alerted to unwanted visitors. The key phrase here is “keep watch“. But who is watching vigilantly for the return of the Lord? I would venture to say that most Christians are not. This is sad and disheartening to know that those who call themselves Christians have become callous to the return of the Lord and do not look forward to His return.

Jesus has commanded us to watch and be alert many, many times in His word and therefore, there will be NO excuses for not watching or not being ready!

You see not many are keeping watch or staying alert looking for the signs of His return. Why? Lethargy, complacency, laziness, lack of knowing their Bibles and some with no desire to leave the comfort of their present, pleasant lives. Keeping watch involves knowing what’s happening in the world and what the Bible says (what the Lord said) would precede His coming.  Keeping watch calls to account personal accountability. God has chosen to speak to us through His word – the Bible – and through signs such as with the lights in the heavens – the sun, moon and stars (Gen 1:14). He has also chosen to communicate via the environment and through nature.

Reading Matt 24 and Luke 21, the Lord says that many things will preclude His coming and gave us an outline of what they would be. Here are some of them – the birth pains or the beginnings of the signs. Are you paying attention? Remember, the Lord Jesus lamb-basted the religious leaders of His time (today’s pastors, priests, teachers, evangelists, church) for not knowing about His first coming – Luke 16:1-3; Luke 19.

Deception

Tons of lies, false truths and twisted rhetoric is spewing from our government and especially from the White House. In fact, nations and their governments around the world are deceiving people by the millions. Lies about how everything will be OK or this is just temporary or there’s no food crisis, etc, etc.

Remember, in not too short of a time the Antichrist and False Prophet will make their move to come on the scene and their dictates will resemble what’s happening now across the world. And many people are following lock-step into submission – right into their collective hands of deceit, and lies. People are sleeping in mass across the globe and it’s very sad to see this.

There is a twisted web of lies and deceit coming from political leadership across the US. Many of our national leaders are being fooled and led by dark “principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Eph 6:12). Bottom line – they are being led by Satanic forces falling right into their trap and web of deceit. Why? They have rejected Almighty God and He has left them to their own devices.

According to God’s word,

Deception is a huge sign mentioned by Jesus 4 times in one chapter. This is both extremely significant and important and we should pay close attention to what this means in our lives. Many wolves have entered the Christian arena (Acts 20:29) and are bent on destroying Christendom through false teaching and false doctrine.

Many follow the tradition and wisdom of men thereby leading many to the gates of hell.

Many preachers have and are perverting the word of God for their own gain, thinking and teaching that it leads to Godliness (1 Tim 6:5-6). How absolutely false! Take heed and beware!

Culture/Societal

In America now, God is being shown the door; asked to leave, told to get out of our lives. People, it seems have no use for Him (their Creator) anymore. So His hand is/has being lifted and consequently evil and wickedness have walked right in with fervent zeal. Therefore, hate is increasing like a freight train speeding out of control and society is in strife, fear, and upheaval. Lawlessness is abounding – all over the world. Hatred with and against family members and children, people killing one another especially here in America. Why? Iniquity and sin are increasing and people’s love for one another is waxing frigidly cold. Many are being offended for even the slightest reasons and political correctness is the new American way. If you preach and teach the full counsel of God, in other words, all Christ’s words you will, today, offend many in and out of the church. Therefore, most of our Christian leaders choose to avoid teaching all the truth found in the Bible and consequently many will be lost for they are not hearing about sin, repentance, and salvation. Take heed and beware!

Environmental/Events in Nature

Environmental or naturally occurring events are ramping up like never before. I’ve heard it said that even the weather people and weather scientists are astonished and perplexed at the weather phenomena with records being smashed and the severeness of weather disasters across the world. Earthquakes are doubling, tornadoes are more frequent and intense, hurricanes resulting in more destruction and death, flooding is absolutely terrible and rampant, deep and wide sinkholes opening up all across the world, unseasonably cold or hot conditions, volcanoes spewing in record numbers, and others waking up after many years of dormancy. What do all these things mean?

Has anyone really stopped to consider what time is it on God’s prophetic time clock? Has anyone thought to connect Bible Prophecy foretold to us by Jesus and His Apostles in scripture with current events? Do people even read His word today? Do they care? Or do most think that He isn’t coming anymore and toss the Bible out of their lives? What about our churches … are they teaching about Christ’s return? Are they alerting and warning people about the events Jesus warned us about prior to His second coming? You know He spoke about this in 3 of the 4 Gospels.

Dear friends, I believe that the Day of the Lord (the day He will start to bring His severe wrath upon this world for its sinfulness and unrepentant hearts) is very near and His severe judgments are just around the corner. God has been and is yet warning us through many events, yes, and through calamities, to turn back to Him – Joel 2:12-17. He will do what He thinks it takes to try and turn us around. In Amos 4, the Lord God repeatedly sent warnings through natural events trying to get the northern kingdom of Israel to return to Him – famine, drought, crop damage, pestilences and wars – but they refused to return (ca. 8th century BC). See any difference today? We are experiencing the same types of warnings through nature and the environment and many of them are getting worse and worse. In the Book of Jeremiah (Jer 8:7), we are told that even the stork, the dove, the swift and the thrush know the appointed times of their going and coming. But we humans seem to be quite ignorant of the times the Lord speaks to us about in His word.And soon His grace will disappear and then all “hell” will break lose!

Bottom Line

Are you ready for the road ahead? Are you prepared? It’s time we got on our knees and did some serious praying; confessing our sin, repenting and turning back to the Lord in the things we do, say and think. BEING READY, alert and watchful are what today is about and what tomorrow will bring. Be ready to tell others about God, about His Son, about His free gift of salvation and the forgiveness of sins. Be ready to give an answer for your faith to others – being active and alive in our faith. Be ready to stand up for your faith and not back down in this antichrist-driven (1 John 2:18) and anti-God-ridden world. And finally, be ready in our heart, mind, soul and spirit for the rapture of the church (Christ’s Bride), which, IMHO, is nearer than most think. Be ready folks, get ready, stand ready for the return of the Lord.

“Sanctify ye a fast, call a solemn assembly, gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the house of the LORD your God, and cry unto the LORD, Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come.” -Joel 1:14-15 (KJV)

LAST DAYS WARNING SIGNS: Lawlessness, Hate, Cold Love, Betrayal Among People

It’s Happening All Over The Earth Now!

“And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. 12- And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. 13- But the one who endures to the end will be saved.” -Matt 24:11-13 (ESV)

In America political insanity is off the charts! One such clear and present indicator of this is the drive to spend money like there is no tomorrow and this driven by crazed out-of-their-mind Democrats and RINOs. I can’t believe what I am hearing them say and other states are actually doing. In other words, there is a movement, a push, a concentrated effort to promote lawlessness in America. Now this is absolute double-downed insanity!

We are seeing the very warning sign that Jesus said would happen in the last days prior to His return and that would start the birth pains of horrendous times ahead. And folks, we are seeing these signs clearly now and (IMO) we are on final approach to the Tribulation prophesied in the Old and New Testaments. Jesus foretold the things that are right in front of us now, but who is seeing them and who is preparing their mind, their heart and their soul?

“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or, ‘Look, He is there!’ do not believe it. 22- For false christs and false prophets will rise and show signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 23- But take heed; see, I have told you all things beforehand.” -Mark 13:21-23 (NKJV)

Satan and his minions are at work firing fiery darts of hate, betrayal, false prophets, lies, deceit rapidly into the minds of Godless men and women. They are prime targets and he is exploiting them to the max. If you have swept your house clean of God (Luke 11:25), His ways, His word, His life, then you also are open to these attacks and let me tell the end result of his schemes are to destroy you – John 10:10. Please friends, take heed and focus in on what’s playing out now all around us in America and the rest of the world. If you only listen to the MSM for news and information (they are withholding the truth from the public and outright lying to us) you will most likely be deceived into thinking it’s not that bad and all is OK.

Fiery darts of hate are being launched at people which is another one of Satan’s tools to destroy us and is growing sign that the final days are upon us. People are killing people just for the sake of killing them… that’s madness. Stone cold love is a warning sign to watch out for as the days get even darker. Sadly, those dark days are rapidly taking shape and people seemingly don’t like or even love their fellow man anymore. We see it all over and read about it in alternate media. Governments are even asking their citizens to spy on their neighbors and report them if they are using too much water or some other nefarious conditions set from authorities that are way overboard. This is a form of betrayal but it’s what it will morph into that is alarming… Could it be that people will be given incentive to “rat”  on their friends and neighbors if they know they are Christians or have Bible studies, etc? I think, yes, this is coming.

Friends, please keep watch on what’s happening around you. Read your Bible so as to know what lies ahead and thereby prepare for it for now is the time.  And pray for discernment, pray that the Holy Spirit would lead and guide you in all truth. The same goes if you are not saved today. Please read Romans 10:9-13 and proclaim Christ as your Lord, confess and repent of your sins and follow Him.

Reflection…: Where do you stand in your relationship with God Almighty and His Son, Jesus the Christ, right now – today?

This is a critical thought that should make all of us look within and decide on a new spiritual path to read God’s word and follow His Son Jesus Christ now, today. Don’t put this off!

Get saved today! (Rom 10:9-10)

WARNING!! Spiritual Famine in America! Of Hearing the Words of the Lord

No Fear of God, No Knowledge of God, No Hearing His Words, No Following His Ways

“Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.” -Hos 4:1 (KJV)

These days much of the world does not have the word of God (the Bible) readily available to them and they must in some cases hide their faith and their meetings for fear of imprisonment and/or death. In other cases, they are persecuted – jailed, maimed, or killed for their belief in Christ as their Lord. Some are even crucified for their belief in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. I have heard of people in the Middle East: Syria and Iraq that have chosen and declared Jesus as their Lord even facing death and beheading (and they were) from the demonically-driven me – beasts. In South Africa, terrorists are destroying churches and killing whole villages without even blinking an eye. Tremendous torture, persecution and killing have come to our planet and it’s gaining ground. Men are killing men; people are blowing themselves up just to kill others. So the chambers of hell are ever-expanding – Isa 5:14 – to welcome them.  If you scoff at this you are not paying attention to what’s happening. Evil is advancing rapidly.

“For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish (very foolish, stupid) children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge. -Jer 4:22 (KJV) (Emphasis added)

America on the other hand is living in relative peace and safety, but chaos and confusion is growing at an alarming rate. Just look at the political turmoil from the recent election; this paints a clear picture of where Americans are at in their faith. Yet despite tons of Christian resources that are available to all – i.e. TV evangelism, book stores, Bibles-a-plenty, Internet availability, churches, it seems, on every street corner, who is seeking after God?

Who is trying to know Almighty God? Who is diligently seeking Him?

There is a tremendous spiritual war going on in the unseen realm manifesting itself in a phrase most widely used in today’s society and that is “political correctness” (PC) and cancel culture. This evil re-engineered way of looking at life, religion, culture and people and is subtly embracing the world and is even more overtly snuffing the life out of America especially in Christian values and beliefs.

These evil tools are some of the fiery darts used by the Devil in a direct assault against God’s word, against His people, the Gospel and the Bible. It’s infecting America at a staggering rate. In our society, this poison has spread into every corner of our lives and yes, now even [covertly] has invaded our Christian churches. This has/is resulting in weak, defenseless Christians and social club churches that don’t seek God and don’t know Him. They have a form of Godliness but deny the power thereof – 2 Tim 3:5.

There exists a famine in the land of hearing the words of Christ. People don’t know their Bibles and are wide-open for every deceiving spirit that’s out there. And they are coming on strong!

FAMINE ALERT:  Churches Pass Out Koolaide instead of Real Spiritual Food!

In America the church pulpits today are soft, weak and ineffective lacking the teaching of the fundamentals of the Gospel. Christian leaders have watered down their preaching into a blend of entertainment and socialized rhetoric not even resembling what’s taught in the Bible. Grace and love are in ‘hyper-drive’ in these churches and for the most part, preachers deliver a carefully designed PC Gospel – easy to hear, funny, not convicting, non-engaging, and totally oriented for the culture in which we live. Traditional teachings of the Gospel are absent and jettisoned from their thinking – i.e. sin, repentance, Godly sorrow, hell, heaven, holiness, etc. You see these soft-touch pastors and elders don’t want to offend their flocks with the truth presented in scripture, so they butter-coat hard truths for (in some cases) personal gain. The result has produced “Christians” who don’t know Almighty God, with almost no desire to know God and don’t know the truths presented in the Bible. Our houses of worship have become houses of entertainment and fun.

“Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:” -Amos 8:11 (KJV)

They don’t know about the Lord and I dare say most don’t have a personal relationship with Him. Churches teach all around the knowledge of God – they have embraced post-modernism in their houses of worship. Distorted and dysfunctional interpretations of what the Bible plainly says are in abundant array.

They value emotional experiences over real faith-based reason and truth. Christian principles are twisted to sound pretty, non-engaging and not offensive.

Most go to church like going to play a round of golf. Play the game (sit in the pews and listen) then talk about all the ‘other’ non-God stuff afterward (drinks – coffee and donuts in the clubhouse). Then most are off to their favorite luncheon establishment with God left out.

Biblical theology and doctrine have drifted into a liberalistic array of Biblical interpretation and teaching. In other words, We think we know better than God. We think we know how to present the Gospel in a better way than the Bible presents it. How utterly foolish! In essence, we have moved away from God: we do not seek Him, we don’t read His word daily, we have little if no fear of Him, and we do not tremble at His word. That being said, we are in a serious famine – not a famine of thirst or bread but of hearing His true wordsHow tragic!

Deaf, Blind and Dull

For decades now the church and Christians have morphed into people who are spiritually deaf and blind and who cannot hear the true words of God. We have become dull and our eyes dim. Friends, we are spiritually starving ourselves to death. But … who sees this? Who can fathom how far Christians have wandered away from the Lord? Heck, we don’t even like regularly reading our Bibles and most of the time we don’t engage in serious prayer. Moreover, we don’t even like talking about God when gathered together. And who these days actually brings their Bible to church and opens it to read it or follow along with the scripture readings, if any are presented?

Can you see how we have drifted away from Him? But you know, He is always there with His outstretched arm waiting for us to return. Where are you at today? With Him, knowing Him, feeding on His word (1Pet 1:18-21)? Do you fear Him, do you tremble at His word (Isa 66:2)? Folks, the bottom line here is – do you really want to know Him … today?

Reassess, Reevaluate and Return to the Lord

Please, today, reassess your life, re-evaluate where you stand in and with the Lord while all the while reading His word – daily. Don’t miss a day, don’t procrastinate, don’t make excuses, and please don’t leave it till the end of the day when you and your eyelids are heavy and ready for sleep. Don’t count on other men/women to feed you His word; I plead with you to dust off your Bible and start reading it wholeheartedly and get to know Him now, today!

“For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings” -Hos 6:6 (KJV)

“Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: 24- But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord.” -Jer 9:24-25 (KJV)

-Fear God and Shun Evil!

-BPWatcher, Internet Preacher and Bible Prophecy Watchman

“For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.” -Matt 13:15 (KJV)

ALMIGHTY GOD, HE ALONE IS LORD!
