Hour Glass3

And there shall be … upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; … Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth.” Luke 21:25, 26

Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore he who resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment (Rom. 13:1, 2).

Declare these things; exhort and reprove with all authority. Let no one disregard you. Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for any honest work . . . (Titus 2:15-3:1).
Life as we know it seems to be coming apart at the proverbial seams; every time one turns on the television another tragic event has taken place.

The result is chaos and confusion, and people are either walking around in a state of dismay or a heightened state anger. Most recently another young black man Fredrick Gray dies while in the custody of police officers in Baltimore, Maryland. As you might guess violence, erupts and rioting ensues. The end times destruction machine is being fed, and men are coming under the influence of its power, reacting out of psychological hurts, pains, and frustrations. The first thing questioned is the presence of God and why this thing continues to happen. There are no perfect responses to this question; it would only serve to feed into another question and those asking would never be satisfied; because they’ve made up in their minds that this is an attack on a race of people and not man.

Everyone is failing to see that most people are receiving their information through Social Media, network news, print media; all of which have the propensity to be tainted by the persons telling the story.  Few ever consider the agenda of those that employ this trickery on a daily basis; you could say a tail bearing spirit is working hard to deceive the masses. In comparison, the US Army has a unit known as the PSYOPSDIV or (psychological operation division) which deploys propaganda leaflets to depose the leaders of that country, torture its inhabitants by playing loud music and shining bright lights all hours of the night.  The function of this unit is to create mistrust and fear amongst the civilian population before any grounds forces engaging in combat.

Every day reporters share stories of death and destruction; 7.8 earthquake hits Nepal death toll sitting at 8500+ people killed, reports say could be as many as 10,000 when it is all said and done. Calbuco Volcano that has been dormant for over forty-seven years erupts in Chile,` severe weather and heavy rain possible in the area threatens to cause massive mudslides. Economies are failing, ISIS killing Christians, men’s hearts failing them for fear, and so on and so forth.

The time is not long; the handwriting is on the wall! The Bible records that the love of many will wax cold, which means there is no longer any value in life.  People care only about themselves and aren’t concerned with their fellow man.  Skulls and crossbones pepper the landscape and the bodies of men, women boys and girls in the form of tattoos, the symbols of destruction, not many seems to be paying attention. In fact, one could even support the argument that man has been struck with blindness, spiritually but blindness all the same.

To add insult to injury the church lies dormant and unresponsive, truly we’re in the Laodicean age. The framework of Love is being torn down and removed from the earth; darkness its evil twin is moving in and taking its place. This downward spiral didn’t just start we’ve been on this gradual slide for approximately the last forty years. While we have been preaching buying and selling; naming and claiming, go and get your house, car, and land the enemy has been acquiring territory.

In the Books of Daniel and Revelation, this time, is clearly spelled out for all to see, yet the watering down of the word has indeed put many Christians to sleep, or as the Bible says deceived. Our only hope is to unify with haste, and that means tearing down the walls of Jericho that keeps us divided and hindered. If there was ever a time to take an active look at our dividing lines, now is the time! We can no longer uphold the age-old traditions and should sincerely seek the face of God.  The world and many in the Body of Christ are becoming anti-God, most certainly building a foundation for the entrance of the anti-Christ. We know that time is coming and already is here where men are following every whim of doctrine. There is even a quote from the Pope;
“The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! ‘Father, the atheists?’ Even the atheists. Everyone! And this Blood makes us children of God of the first class! We have created children in the likeness of God, and the Blood of Christ has redeemed us all! And we all have a duty to do good. And this commandment for everyone to do good, I think, is a beautiful path towards peace. If we, each doing our part, do good to others, if we meet there, doing good, and go slowly, gently, little by little, we will make that culture of encounter that so much. We must meet one another doing good. ‘But I don’t believe, Father, I am an atheist!’ But do good: we will meet one another there.”

I truly love God and my neighbor, I feel a burning desire to go to the mountain top and scream to the top of my voice “WAKE UP,” the sands of time are ebbing away!!!
