The Lord is Coming

“Behold, I send My messenger,
And he will prepare the way before Me.
And the Lord, whom you seek,
Will suddenly come to His temple,
Even the Messenger of the covenant,
In whom you delight.
Behold, He is coming,”
Says the LORD of hosts.” – Mal. 3:1

This message from Malachi the prophet is a message of warning. The verses before describe what the Lord is upset about – upset with His people, the Church.

“Judah has dealt treacherously,
And an abomination has been committed in Israel and in Jerusalem,
For Judah has profaned
The LORD’s holy institution which He loves:
He has married the daughter of a foreign god.” – Mal. 2:11 Continue reading

The Days of Noah and Lot

Jesus revealed the world’s condition just before His return to earth –

“And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.” – Luke 17:26,27

“Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. “Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.” – Luke 17:28-30

He said it would be as it was in Noah’s time and in Lot’s time. But what was so bad about them? In Noah’s day they were eating, drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, all normal events in life. And in Lot’s day they were eating, buying and selling and building, again all normal events of life for a successful society. We have to look at other scriptures to find the answer to these questions.

In Noah’s time it is recorded in Genesis that –

“Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. … The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.” – Gen. 6:5, 11

And in Lot’s day it is recorded  –

“And the LORD said, “Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grave, … And they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may know them carnally.” – Gen. 18:20, 19:5

In other words, in the face of such wickedness the people didn’t care but continued living as if nothing was wrong. God’s laws were being broken all around them and they ignored it as if nothing was wrong. They denied God.

What is the condition of our world today?

Nancy Pelosi – Hypocrite

Washington leaders flip-flop on issues depending on whose side they will empower and not how they will affect the people they are supposed to represent. Nancy Pelosi was quoted as saying – “We all have moral responsibility to ensure all children of God are treated with compassion and decency”. But recently Nancy Pelosi is showing her inconsistency by refusing to support the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection act, which would provide medical care to babies born-alive in abortion clinics.

Child sex trade is at an all-time high in the United States, much of it fueled by well known political leaders. And leaders of both political parties refuse to enact border controls that work while democrat socialists continue holding out candy sticks to entice more illegal immigrants to flood the border. The influx of drugs, criminals, and illegal immigrants on our southern border threatens to wreak our government while Democrat leaders are pushing to no longer call them illegals.

These are just a few examples of the many lawless acts taking place today. But, the main lawlessness is the breaking of God’s laws. Church leaders are promising those who sin God’s grace as a covering for that sin, even though they continue in the sin. The concept of holiness is a lost message to most of the Church. Paul wrote to the Corinthians –

“Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.” – 2 Cor. 7:1

We will all stand before God one day and we will answer how we reacted to the wickedness and lawlessness all around us. I pray we will all be like Noah and Lot –

God “did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the ungodly; and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly; and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked (for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds)” – 2 Pet. 2:5-8

Let us pray and speak against the rising wickedness and let us purge our own lives of any of its influence.

May God help us all survive these days of Noah and Lot.

To Those Who Love His Appearing

21st centuryThe clock of history is ticking and the time of the Lord’s return is nearing. The 7th feast of the Lord has happened for this year, the feast of Tabernacles. No one knows for sure when the Father will tell the Son “Go and get your bride”. Jesus told many parables about this, for example ‘The master returning from a wedding feast’.

“Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning; and you yourselves be like men who wait for their master, when he will return from the wedding, that when he comes and knocks they may open to him immediately. Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching. Assuredly, I say to you that he will gird himself and have them sit down to eat, and will come and serve them. And if he should come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” – Luke 12:35-40

In all these parables, the thought of being prepared and surprise at the coming of the Lord was heavily emphasized. In His teaching of the end times, Jesus said in Luke –
