Watchmen, Awake!

Newsflash:  the world is spinning out of control.

Okay, so it isn’t new news.  Everyone is aware things are screwy — out of control — all over the world.  People are either frightened or angry or bewildered or unconcerned, depending upon their own internal messaging system.  My internal messaging system is telling me to tell everyone I can that the world, as they know it, is about to end.

For some, that will mean instant glory as they are united with the King of Kings.  For others, it is going to mean fear and anguish and gnashing of teeth.  And for still others, it is going to mean forever separated from God.

I am not a fear-monger.  I love people, I love peace, and I love, love, LOVE Jesus.  I am not writing this to cause even more anxiety to those who are already anxious.  I am writing to wake up those who have gone to sleep so they do not miss the time of His return.

For as long as I have been aware, people have been telling me Jesus is coming soon.  You know what?  There were right!  He is.  His coming was foretold in scripture (see Revelation 12) and that prophecy is being played out in the stars above us right now.  As we were told in scripture, the generation that was alive at the time of the rebirth of Israel will not all be dead when He returns.

Matthew 24:33 “So also, when you see all these things, you know that He is near, right at the door. 34 Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have happened. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.…”

And so it is coming to pass.  We are in the season of the Lord’s return.  It is amazing to be alive at such a time as this!

The church is supposed to be awake and about the Lord’s business right now.  We are supposed to be the watchmen on the wall, sounding the call of warning for all who will hear.  It is our responsibility.

People are going to laugh at us, just as they laughed at Noah.  Forget about it.  Just keep doing what you have been told to do, because if you don’t you will have to explain to Him why you didn’t.  The scoffers will scoff.  Let them.  The haters will hate.  Let them.  You are called to SOUND THE WARNING OF HIS RETURN.

I am sounding a trumpet call:  if you don’t have a personal one-on-one relationship with Jesus, GET ONE!  If you do, it is time to make sure all of your family and friends and acquaintances also hear the GOOD NEWS!  And when you are finished telling them, there is still the rest of the world.

There is an urgency in the spiritual realm — an urgency which says time is very short.

Wake up, church!  It is the time of the great harvest.  It is the time of His return.  You don’t want to be caught sleeping now!

I love you.  I’m praying for you.  May the Lord multiply your harvest today.

Luke 21:36 – Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
