Awake from your slumber! “The end of all things is near. The night is nearly over; the day is almost here” [Romans 13:12]. The final judgments of God are soon to fall. Awake from your slumber! “The Lord is at hand” [Philippians 4:5; James 5:8]. For, “He who testifies to these things says, ‘Yes, I am coming soon…” [Revelation 22:20]. Danger! Danger! Danger! Awake from your slumber.
Oh, how I pray that more people would wake up to the time we are living in. The writing is on the wall. The winds of change are blowing all around us and fearful things are just over the horizon. Run to the place of refuge, [Jesus Christ] because, we are standing on the threshold of great and solemn events. The prophecy of [Daniel 2] alone shows we are in the ‘time of the end’, and all the other evidence proves we are in the very end times. Prophecies are fulfilling. Wars, nation rising against nation, famine, pestilence, earthquakes, persecution, iniquity abounding, love waxing cold, the sea and the waves roaring [Matthew 24; Luke 21:25-26] all of these things are happening right now in the world. And what did Jesus say in [Matthew 24]? When ye shall see ALL these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.”
Hear the word of the Lord… This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Listen! I am going to bring a disaster on this place that will make the ears of everyone who hears of it tingle. For they have forsaken me and made this a place of foreign gods; they have burned incense in it to gods that neither they nor their ancestors nor the kings of Judah ever knew, and they have filled this place with the blood of the innocent. They have built the high places of Baal to burn their children in the fire as offerings to Baal—something I did not command or mention, nor did it enter my mind. So beware, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when people will no longer call this place Topheth or the Valley of Ben Hinnom, but the Valley of Slaughter. I will make void the counsel of Judah and Jerusalem in this place, and I will cause them to fall by the sword before their enemies and by the hand of those who seek their life; and I will give over their carcasses as food for the birds of the sky and the beasts of the earth. I will devastate this city and make it an object of horror and scorn; all who pass by will be appalled and will scoff because of all its wounds. I will make them eat the flesh of their sons and daughters, and they will eat one another’s flesh because their enemies will press the siege so hard against them to destroy them. [Jeremiah 19:3–9]
For in My Jealousy and in the fire of My wrath have I spoken, surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; so that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains, shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. [Ezekiel 38:19-20; Isaiah 24:1-6; Luke 21:26]. Danger! Danger! Danger! Awake from your slumber! The Lord is at hand!
“They have chosen their own ways, and their souls delight in their abominations; so, I [God] also will choose harsh treatment for them and bring upon them what they dread. For when I called, no one answered, when I spoke, no one listened. They did evil in My sight and chose what displeases Me” (Isaiah 66:3-4).
Because they rejected Him, they were condemned by God. Their nation was destroyed. Their souls were sentenced to Hell.
There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. [Proverbs 16:25].
