I've had dreams about the Endtime and even a Muslim girl who lives with me had a dream with Jesus saying to her that He was coming soon. How cool is that?! It's the handwriting on the wall?
A good lesson from the “Handwriting on the Wall”, is that once you see the handwriting on the wall, it's already happening & too late. Like in Dan 5, with Belshazzar, as he was seeing the handwriting, the enemies were coming in under the gate. He was slain that night just a few hours later.
I think many people get sidetracked thinking they're not really in the Endtime unless they are actually living in the Last 7 Years. But that's the "end" of the Endtime. But there are several years leading up to that, the beginning & the middle. We don't have to be running from the Antichrist to prove that we're in the Endtime.
Even the last 50 years with huge scientific advancements is one of the signs of the Endtime. Now things are happening extremely fast. As forewarned Christians, we shouldn't have to wait till we actually see the handwriting on the wall to believe. We should prepare beforehand.
Two times when Jesus told us to "watch & pray" He was talking specifically about the Endtime. Why would He say that, watch & pray? We are watching, but have we really been praying about what it all means? Jesus specifically mentioned to "watch & pray" in the Endtime just before He comes.
It's a warning to be on the alert and be prepared & be on the lookout for the signs ahead of "THE" Endtime & just in the Endtime, so we'll have enough time to prepare & do what we need to do and be ready. Don't wait till you see the "handwriting on the wall".
"Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is." ~ Mark 13:33 (talking about the end of the world to His disciples)
"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." ~ Luke 21:36 (Jesus' Signs of the End talk to His disciples).
The above example of the handwriting on the wall and "watch & pray", I never thought about it until I started writing. It's just started coming to me now as I'm writing you. I had no intention of saying that, it's coming fresh. I never realised when Jesus mentioned watch and pray He was talking about the End. That's so cool.
Today I took some prayer time and asked the Lord if he had something to say. Here's my prayer and what came when I was listening.
(Keep in mind I don't consider myself especially gifted when it comes to hearing from the Lord, but I firmly believe that He will talk to anyone who will take the time to listen, and He tailors His answers to your particular needs and faith).
'Jesus, the whole World is in confusion. I'm not sure what to think myself and I guess I haven't talked much with You lately. It's so easy to get caught up in the day to day living. But now I am here ready to listen. ILY Jesus... Anything?'
"I am broadcasting all the time, there is just so much static nowadays it's hard for people to tune in. Yes it's confusing and the waves and sea is roaring. It's building up to a climax but it remains to be seen if the end is yet. It depends on a lot of things, peoples choices mainly, the timing is flexible up to a point. Even if I can see ahead I am still letting the enemy have free will and choice, as well as my children.
"As for you, you just have to keep plugging along being as good and loving and caring as you can day by day, that in a sense is my commission to all of my children. Show people there is love and friendship and caring in spite of the evils of the world.
Your actions are somewhat directed by your circumstances, your age, your health and strength, and the situation you are in. Do all the good you can with the people you are around and the people you meet - the ones you communicate with - and then leave the rest to Me and to the choices they make.
"Trust in the Lord and do good and He shall exalt you to inherit the land - that is "The Promised Land." When you do that you are storing up treasures in heaven. ILY!"
For what it's worth, that's what I got. If any of this rings true to you go ahead and apply :-)
