The Day Is Closing

Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness,  and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. For it will come like a trap. For it will come on all those who live on the face of the earth. Be always on watch, and pray that you may escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.

 Luke 21:34-36

My dear children are you paying attention to what is going on in the world around you? Do you see the harsh realities of life without God? We are all too anxious to push God out and allow the devil to take firm control over life and we fail to see it. We scream tolerance to perversion and call it diversity. Sadly even some of our churches have fallen into listening to the devil and allowing the devil to pervert the Word of the LORD. And we are too blind to see and are falling into the pit of hell. The flesh rules everyone and even those who are call themselves Christian have fallen for the lies of the devil. Satan controls the minds of so many people. The road that leads to life in Christ is the narrow way and the road to hell is wide and easy. Following the way of the LORD means we walk in the Spirit and not in the flesh. We are in the world but not of the world when we have surrendered our lives to God. It saddens me to see so many Christians being deceived by Satan. Beware my children, the day is coming of the LORD’s return and you will have to answer for your words and deeds and whether you did or did not walk in the way of the LORD. Then I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books…And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire (Revelation 20:12-15).

Don’t be deceived, my children, Satan is making a mockery of you. You have allowed his lies and have silenced God’s Word. In God’s Word is the truth and the truth shall set you free. You have become enslaved to sin and in the name of diversity and fairness, you claim that Jesus’ command to love one another gives everyone the license to sin. This is wrong my children. Please open your eyes and see how you are being deceived. You cannot sit on the fence, having life both ways. Either you follow Jesus or you follow Satan. There is NO MIDDLE GROUND! And you cannot plead, “I did not know what God requires because you refuse to read His Word and find out what God wants you to do with your lives. That is a copout, a lie. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God…Therefore God gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature, rather than the Creator, Who is blessed forever. Amen (Romans 1:18-25). Every time someone stands in God’s Word and proclaims His truth, they are shut down, called liars and are told that love means you allow people to do what they want to do in their lives and we are called “Bigots” because we preach God’s truth in His Word. My children, we are called to walk in God’s way, His truth and His life! Not our standards, not the devil’s standards.  It is God’s creation, God’s world, so it’s His way, His standards!

“Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake and remains clothed, so as not to go naked and be shamefully exposed (Revelation 16:15). My children, the time of Christ’s return draws near! Don’t be caught like a thief doing the deeds of the devil. Wake up and smell the evil that is filling your life. Indeed my children, Satan has you hoodwinked and you do not seem to care. I write these words to you because I love you and God loves you and we want you to choose to walk in the way of the LORD. I plead with you, my children, open your eyes; open your hearts to Jesus before it is too late. God is calling to you but you have allowed the devil to drown God out of your lives! You are standing on shifting sand and being swallowed up in the devil’s lies heading straight to hell! There are only two choices, God or Satan. Which will you choose? Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, the gods of greed, lust, adultery, flesh, sex outside of marriage, homosexuality, personal gratification in all areas of your life, putting yourself and your personal pleasures before your children by killing them through abortion because you have no self-control and your sexual pleasure is more important to you than walking in the way of the LORD. You have placed cars as your god, houses, and clothes. You go around shamefully exposed and don’t care that you cause others to look at you and cause them to commit adultery. Jesus said, “If you as much look at another with lust, you have committed adultery.” Just thinking about how sexy someone looks is adultery. My dear children, when you do this you sin twice by shamefully exposing your body and causing another to lust. You lead another person into sin! You allow the devil to degrade you and you don’t even care that you are being used by the devil.

The devil traps you in sin and you seem oblivious to it. Satan desires your very life because he wants to steal the joy that could be yours if you choose to walk in the way of the LORD. You only have to surrender your life to Christ. My dear children wake up before it is too late! You will die in your sin and be sent to hell for eternity. Satan spreads his lies and brings confusion into your lives. He lies about creation, calling it the Big Bang theory. God spoke and this world was created out of His love. He is the Big Bang that created the world and all that is in it. He spoke and the sun and moon and stars shined forth. He spoke and the plants and the trees sprang up. He spoke and creatures came forth. He spoke and man and woman were created in His image, in the image of God He created them. God created an order to things so that in His order things would have balance. He did not create man and man, or woman and woman. He created man and woman to leave their father and mother and home and come together to be helpmates to each other, to become one, to procreate children and to live life according to His way. My children, we were created in order to create so we could populate the earth. We were created to live in God’s love and to walk in Him. God will not make you love Him because forcing someone to love Him would not be love. God allows you to choose between Him and the devil. God’s love is perfect and in that amazing love of God, He made a way for us to be reconciled with Him because of our sins. Thank You Jesus for dying for our sins, even before we were born. Even though we allow the devil to control our lives, God came down to earth as a human being as He created us, to show us how to walk in His love and to show us that we could in fact control ourselves and not sin. Consider this: Every time you choose NOT to love God and NOT to follow His Word, His way, His truth and His life, you hurt God. Yes, you hurt God because His is your parent and as such deserves your respect and honor. But you mock Him and you disrespect God when you follow the devil. Stop listening to the devil’s lies and give God your Father a chance. Choose to have a personal relationship with God. Talk to Him, write to Him, and share your life with Him. Let Him into your heart and trust Him. He knows what is best for you because He created you. You have a purpose in your life. God has plans for you; to give you a future and hope for your life. Return to God and abide in Him. Apart from Him life has no meaning. Praise Him and He will lift you up. Thank Him for everything in your life. No matter what is going on in your life, God is there with you. When temptation comes, God always leaves you a way out of it. All you have to do is call on Him and He will bring you through. He is molding you perfectly into being holy as He is holy.

In the book of Numbers, God tells Moses to tell the people to make tassels. “And you shall have the tassel, that you may look upon it and remember all the commandments of the LORD and to do them, and that you may not follow the harlotry in which your heart and your eyes are inclined, and that you may remember and do all my commandments and be holy to your God (Numbers 15:39-42). The reason God wanted the people to wear tassels was so that they would have on their bodies a reminder to walk in His way. It’s the reason we wear a cross, so that we can remember that God chose to become human, to show us that we can, if we are willing, to walk in the way of the LORD and to remember that Jesus took our punishment of death for our sins. Jesus died, He gave His life for yours and when we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, when we choose to have a personal relationship with God, we are to give up our old man of sin and to be reborn in water and in His Spirit. We take and become a new being and give up the sin that separated us from God. We repent, which means we do not continue in sin. If you say you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior but do not repent, be baptized in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and live your life walking in God’s way, then you deceive both God and yourself. You cannot save yourself, it is a gift of grace from God that has bought your Salvation; it was God giving His life for yours. We are saved by God’s grace, not of our own merit. Nothing we can do can bring this about. It’s already done in the Son. Paul says in Galatians 5:16: “I say then, walk in the Spirit, and you will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh.” We cannot walk and sin and claim to be saved. We have to purge ourselves of sin and any temptation that leads us to sin. Again in Galatians 8:24 Paul says: “And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.” We have to nail our sins to the cross of Jesus and ask Him to forgive us for our sins. We have to choose not to watch sex, adultery, homosexuality, greed, malice, hatred and if that means no TV or movies, than shut the TV off! Or change the channel and find something that is good. There are plenty of Christian channels on TV and there are many movies that are good and wholesome and teach you God’s way for life. Stop the devil in his tracks and allow him no more to have control over your life. You can change and become holy as God is holy.

Paul reminds us of walking in the way of the LORD. “if indeed you have heard of Him, and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus; that you put off, the old man which grow corrupt according to the deceitful lusts and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness (Ephesians 4:21-24). The only way that we can walk in God, to abide in Him, is to surrender our lives to Him, to begin each day and end each day in His Word, in prayer, and in talking with Him and building the relationship that brings life. My dear children, the choice is yours to make; walk in God’s love or walk in Satan lies. Don’t wait, thinking you have plenty of time. Your life could end today or Jesus will return and how will you be able to stand before God. John describes what he saw in the Revelation of Jesus Christ concerning the end times. “And I saw the dead, small and great standing before God, and the books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged, each one according to his works (Revelation 20:12). How will you stand before God on this day? When the Book of Life is opened will your name be written in it? Or will your name be written in the other book?

I pray that you will hear these words and look at your life and ask yourself what kind of life you are leading. It’s not easy walking with the Lord. The world says God’s Word does not speak truth, but God’s Word is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. God does not change and neither does His Words. People may take His Words out of context, ignore parts of the Bible because they don’t like what it says. My children, please listen to God and walk in His light as He is the Light. God is with you always He sees everything you do, He hears everything you say. And He will judge you according to His standards and not your standards. My children, walk with the Lord. Seek Him daily, take up your cross and sing praise to God in all circumstances. Do not remain in sin and ignore His Word of life. Lay your life at the foot of the cross and let Jesus abide in you. God is our Source of life, He will supply all your needs. My children, Seek Him! Hear again from John: And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying “Behold the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them and He will be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes, there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away (Revelation 21:3-4). He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he will be My Son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable murders, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, all liars shall have their part in the lake of fire and brimstone, which is the second death (Revelation 21:7-8). My children, today is the day to choose God and let Him show you His way. Begin your walk in the Lord. Wake up 15 minutes early and Read His Word, talk with Him. Surrender your day to Him. Call on Him when things are hard and you need His help. He will never leave you or forsake you so please do not leave Him or forsake Him. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths. God loves you with a never ending love. He’s waiting for you.
