A Pastors Perspective The End Times

The End Times

Well, you might have been living in a Cave if you’ve missed all the End Time speculation that’s been going on for the last few weeks. I have good friends who are students of prophecy and the books of Daniel, Isaiah and Revelation, and their fingers are flying over their keyboards as they track the significance of the recent Hurricanes, Fires, Earthquakes and alignment of the Stars and Planets. I’ve read the Bible through many times, but I’m the first to admit I’m no student of prophecy. The Call on my life has always been to teach others how to draw near to God, and I’m to write of His attributes, personality, and about our worship of Him. That said, I don’t study or research Bible prophecies, but I do believe them. And I trust God that no matter what happens I’m ready to meet Him!

But still, I do know this; my spirit is stirred! Suffice it to say, there’s something up in the Heavenlies! Something is going on and you’d have to be really out of touch with His Spirit not to understand there’s a certain anticipation in the air. I have never signed on with anyone who has a date for the rapture or for the Second Coming, as Jesus said it will come as a thief in the night, but I can assure you we are in the midst of change! The storms and earthquakes of recent days do have a significance. No, the Father did not cause them, but He did allow them to get our attention. And it’s working.

It doesn’t take a Bible Scholar to ascertain that it’s different now than ever before. We are in the last days and have been. It’s borrowed time we are living in, really. No, I don’t know the dates nor does anyone else, but we can know the Seasons, and this is the Season of repentance and a drawing near to the Lord, and in my opinion this is the season of the End Time. It’s time for all of us to turn to Him. It’s time for all of us to “get our house in order.”

I’m not a doom and gloom preacher and if you know me personally you know that’s true, but my spirit is stirred! Something is going on! But what ever comes, I am ready. Are you? Are you close to Him? If the Trumpet sounded tonight, would you hear it? Would you rise to meet Him? If you died in an accident tomorrow, would you be in His presence, safe from judgement? These are questions that should be on everyone’s mind.

One Teacher of Biblical Prophecy said the Hurricanes Maria and Jose are translated Mary and Joseph, and that has significance in relation to the Star Virgo and it’s position. Another says that Star/Planet alignment is key to the end time regarding prophecies, and the significant stars aligned on September 23rd. It could certainly be true. It could happen very quickly that the Church is raptured. Or maybe not, but you don’t know that, nor do I. We are not promised tomorrow. Your end could be near regardless. I had a friend Tommy who’s wife was taken to the Emergency Room last month with heart issues. When it looked like we might lose her, he had a massive heart attack from the stress and we lost him! You don’t know! The Rapture could be tonight or it could be next year, but you don’t know if you’ll make it till next week!

Get ready!

Repent!

Turn back to Him if you’ve strayed!

Then you’ll be ready for whatever happens! And in case I don’t see you again, I love you and I’ll see you in Heaven if you’ve made the right choices!
And that’s the way I see it!
