Picking up here where I left off when I advised against stocking up on anti-pain pills to use during the tribulation period. No, indeed, prepare your soul to not be here during that time. There are many who profess the name of Christian who will be here. Are you re-born in the sense that your spirit has been made alive in Jesus Christ?
Most of the things that are predicted to happen do not happen instantly. Instead, we have “advanced” movement toward the full implementation of events. For instance, see this:
Amazon rolling out palm scanning payment system at some Whole Foods …
Apr 21, 2021The company announced Wednesday it is bringing palm scanners to one of its Whole Foods stores in Seattle, with plans to roll out the new payment system to eight stores in the Seattle area… (google) Doesn’t that sound like a movement toward the time one must have the “mark” in order to buy or sell? Just put this little chip in your hand (or forehead) then you will never have to use credit cards, checkbooks, or paper money again. They do this all over the world.
(personal note) Sammy and I receive a Soc. Security check from UK because of his service in the merchant marines. How much easier not to have to exchange for dollars! Actually we do not handle this issue at all because the banks already do it for us.
Revelation 9:10 They had tails with stingers like scorpions, which had …
And they have tails like to scorpions, and stings, and in their tails is their power to hurt men five months. Revelation 9:5. https://biblehub.com › revelation › 9-10.htm This plague will be during the tribulation. I am pointing it out because I saw some news item recently which said our Marines were hunting for giant scorpions because, although they could not kill humans, they could kill their dogs. I couldn’t find that article today so I can’t document it. But I did find a lot of accounts of the scorpion problem that developed in Egypt storms. http://Plagues Strike Egypt: Sudden Floods, Then Scorpions Called … Nov 15, 2021Plagues Strike Egypt: Sudden Floods, Then 4-Inch Scorpions Called Deathstalkers Swept from desert burrows, hundreds, if not thousands, of scorpions skittered into villages, stinging at least…
Matthew 24:4-28 Jesus spoke about signs. He indicated that floods, earthquakes, wars, rumors between nations would not be significant signs because they always are and always have been. Now we have a lot of statistics that might show increased trouble of that kind, but they would not have understood at that time. As we do not understand some things now.
Another issue I have just recently come across is recorded in Luke, Jesus’ words. “upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity” (Luke 21:25) I know that Jesus taught for us not to worry about what to eat, drink, or wear, so if he is not talking about physical kinds of things, what “perplexity” is he warning against. Some hot under my collar right now are the crew predicting that climate change is going to kill us; if it doesn’t get us, Covid will; or if Covid doesn’t do it, the “shots” will. But I believe Jesus was talking more about “soul” issues like the destruction of families, racial strife, gender dysfunction and sexual perversions, dysfunction, and other evil brought about by the Woke movement.
What about inflation and lack of food? Yes, I do believe that is a sign of perilous times. They are a forerunner to a great number of deaths in the tribulation.
This is getting too long. I’ll be back.
Scary stuff if you aren’t a believer. Again, I pray my faith is strong enough to spare me from such times!
Kim, it is not your faith that sustains you in troubled times, it is the one in whom you have put your trust/faith. It is amazing how strong he is!
You know that of which you speak!
And watch for CBDCs, Central Bank Digital Currencies, to prepare us even more for a “mark” that will be needed to buy and sell.
Even so, Lord Jesus, come!
And He said, “Look, I am coming quickly!”
And the Spirit and the Bride say, “Even so, come!”
Thank you for joining me in all Hallelujah praise. We stay on the path he chooses for us and arrive at our eternal home. What a blessed time that will be.
This is an odd day, Oneta. You posted a long piece, and I posted a short one. 😄
Well, I have lots more coming, but I’m going to dole out the serious stuff in smaller doses, I think. 😀 Might do a prompt challenge tomorrow. I missed some bloganuary topics I wanted to delve into. Thanks for reading and commenting. I need you.
You need me? Haha. 😉 I may need you, too, Oneta. Check out my post. This one is actually manageable – promise. 😉
