“Thus, Saith the Lord!”

My heart breaks as I see many turn a deaf ear to the warnings – a blind eye to the obvious signs; but as My Word which goes forth from My mouth; know that it shall not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.” [Isaiah 55:11]. Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound the alarm on my holy hill. Let all who live in the land tremble, for the day of the LORD is coming. It is close at hand-a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and blackness. Like dawn spreading across the mountains a large and mighty army is coming, such as never was of old nor ever will be in ages to come. Cry out to Me! Blow the Shofar! Another army is approaching… this one not of locust but men… who attack, very much like the locusts, scaling walls and entering houses… and this too will be a “Day of the Lord.”  Even now,” declares the LORD, return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning. [Joel 2:1-12]. Time is running out! Don’t be left behind due to your unbelieving and lukewarm attitude! Accept the eternal salvation before it is too late! Because I tell you, events will come rapidly now. They will come in quick succession. There will hardly be any time between one event and the next and you will not be able to catch your breath in between what is coming. The Earth will tremble and shake, and darkness will descend. The time is now upon you. Don’t look to the right or the left for I AM COMING!  “Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation” [2 Corinthians 6:2].

“There is a time, I know not when, a place, I know not where, that marks the destiny of men, to glory or despair. There is a line, by us unseen, that crosses every path the hidden boundary between God’s mercy and God’s wrath. How long may men go on in sin? How long will God forbear? Where does hope end? and where does the confine of despair begin? Our answer from the skies is sent- ‘Ye who from God depart, While it is called today, Repent! And harden not your heart.

Now, Jesus Himself made it crystal clear that we cannot know the date of His return. He stated in [Matthew 24:36], “of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone” but, the Bible makes it equally clear that those who have the Holy Spirit living in them — that is, those who believe in Jesus as Savior — can understand the nature of the times that mark His return [1 Thessalonians 5:2-6]. I tell you the season of the Lord’s return is now! We are coming to the end of one age and the beginning of the age of Jesus’ glorious reign right here on earth. There is no way to escape the conclusion that we are living on borrowed time. The signs of the times are upon us, and they are shouting for our attention.

Are you ready? If Jesus were to return today, would He be your “Blessed Hope” [Titus 2:11-14] or would He be your “Holy Terror” [Revelation 6:12-17]? If you have never received Him as your Lord and Savior, now is the time to act. Repent of your sins and call upon the name of the Lord that you might be saved [Acts 2:14-39]. For the Bible clearly teaches that God never pours out His wrath without warning for He is a just and loving God who does not wish that any should perish [2 Peter 3:9]. That is why He has provided so many signs to alert us to the fact that we are living on the threshold of the Tribulation and the soon return of Jesus Christ.

I ask you, where do you stand? Are you under God’s wrath because you haven’t accepted His free gift of salvation, or are you under God’s grace because you have? Will you be one of those raptured before God’s wrath, or will you suffer in it? 

You have a decision to make. If you haven’t accepted Jesus as your Savior, then heed [Mark 1:25]. “The time has come…the kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!” Believe in Jesus, God’s Son, and have everlasting life. What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!’” [Mark 13:35-37].

We are given a powerful glimpse into the Heart of God. God’s heart was broken over Noah’s generation. [Genesis 6:5-6]. 

Surely the Lord God does nothing unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets”. [Amos 3:7].

But this people hath a revolting and a rebellious heart; they are revolted and gone. [Jeremiah 5:24].
