Hero of the Faith
If for a short time you could slip back in time and experience life during the time of Christ just so you could meet Jesus and witness His miraculous life, would you?
Imagine witnessing the miracle of the loaves and fishes; 5,000 people fed from one tiny portion of food, bread and fish.Think what it would be like to watch a crippled and lame man, one whom you’ve known all the days of your life, pick up his pad and walk, run, leap for joy at the healing of his body.
Wow! What would that have been like?
What about witnessing the Gadarene and his deliverance, watching the pigs run into the sea?
How about the days of the ten plagues? As horrible as they likely were, wouldn’t you have liked to actually witness the Hand of God on such a massive and overwhelming scale?
Standing on the shores of the Nile as Moses commanded and the waters turned to blood, the fish died and bellied up and the waters became undrinkable.
Though not fun and most likely very scary, consider what it must have been like to see the frogs emerge by the millions; followed by biting flies and lice and then the diseased livestock.
These earlier plagues would have paled in comparison to the boils coming upon the Egyptians and their animals. All over the lands the Israelites were spared while the boils spread to their masters.
How fearful the Egyptians must have been after seeing such calamity befall their people to then experience lightning and thunders followed by great and grievous hail.
“What now,” they must have cried as the locust invaded, destroyed their crops and flooded their barns and homes.
Then for the entire region to be struck by darkness as far as the eye could see. You know how darkness strikes fear in so many people. Imagine inexplicable darkness and the fears generated after all these horrible plagues.
Finally to witness as the firstborn of every family is struck down and died without physical cause. What a spectacle as the Hebrews gathered all their belonging and then gathered from the Egyptians as the Israelites marched triumphantly out of Egypt. Imagine that!
The ten plagues were only the beginning of miraculous things to follow for the Israelites.
The Israelites were led forward by a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night.
That alone would be impressive if that were all. However, when they began to starve God produced quail; when they crumbled snakes; when they were sickened the rod for healing was lifted up; and every day they collected Manna for the day’s meal except on the sixth day where they collected Manna for two days so they could honor the Sabbath. Wonders upon wonders, for if they collected for two days on any other day the excess would spoil. Interesting, yeah?
So, what would you give to have physically experienced these miraculous days?
By the way, don’t think these miracles didn’t happen. Such propaganda is silly; consider, if God who is capable of creating the entire universe from nothing why would He have difficulty accomplishing these trivial miracles. Thinking of these events as mere metaphors is exactly what people lacking faith in God are trying to accomplish. Stand in faith.
Now, back to the story…
When you stand before God one day, don’t you want to have be one of the champions of the faith? It comes at a cost, you know?
When you stand beside one of the early men and women of God who had given all and survived more to serve their God, wouldn’t you like to be able to stand as an equals or at least near equals for your efforts, faith, life and deeds?
Well, hold on to your socks, because we have entered just such an amazing period!
Now! I say, right NOW!
We, the Body of Christ of this generation of the Latter Days will be witnesses/participants to this magnificent and emerging period of Bible Times: the End Times. Scary, I know, but also a time for great deeds of heart and faith.
Without question, we are living in the Latter Days.
The Beginning of Sorrows, that period which takes place before the Great Consummation, has already begun and it is leading us into the Great Consummation very soon.
You and I have a chance to be as those of old who gave their lives, their all for the King of Heaven, the Lord of lords.
We can and should stand tall and in opposition as the Mark of the Beast is becoming a commonplace piece of technology: the financial bio-implants and potentially any other type of technology which will affix on or in the human body expressly for identification and financial purposes is by definition potentially the Mark of the Beast (Revelation 13:14-18). Warn your friends and family and Church.
We can and should hold our ground as Christianity is besmirched and Christians persecuted because we are Christians, children of God standing strong in the faith and in our testimony in Christ (Revelation 12:11)
When the Mark of the Beast becomes mandatory we can seize our families and fly to the wilderness, forests, deserts or plains for the next two and a half years before Christ’s return. The Tribulation Period of the Great Consummation will require that much time.
We can and must overcome to the End, for the End draws nearer than most might believe (Matthew 24:13; Revelation 21:7).
We can stand as Paul stood and proclaimed, “If God be for us, who can be against us?”
WE can prepare for the storm that IS coming (Tribulation Period of the Great Consummation) and prepare well enough that we might be able to assist our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ who will also be fleeing for their lives and from persecution.
And when one day – not so distant from this day – we kneel before our Lord and Savior following physical death or the resurrection/Rapture – we will be able to hear Jesus gladly say to US, “Well done my brother or sister, you have endured all for My name’s sake and overcome to the End! Blessed and holy are you who have shared in the first resurrection. For the second death (Judgment at the Bema Seat) will have no power over you, and you will be a priest of God and of Me, your Savior and you will reign with Me for a thousand years.” (Revelation 20:6)
We haven’t missed anything! We entered the Latter Days nearly 70 years ago, 1948.
The Lord Jesus is prophesied to return within 80 or less years of Israel’s reemergence as a nation on it ancestral lands (Jeremiah 16:14-16; 23:7-20; 30:1-24; Ezekiel 38:16; Hosea 3:4-5).
It’s time to get it fixed; time to place Jesus and His will in your life number one; time for you to put aside what you might need when you will be forced to live without money or resources you haven’t yet put away.
- We Christians will not be able to live in our homes or cities.
- We will not be able to receive a paycheck.
- We will not be able to pay our taxes or send our children to school or maintain a business.
- We will be forced out and away from anyone and anything that is not a Christian based.
Why you might ask, because on a supernatural level, as a prophetic fulfillment, secular people will hate you because you are a Christian. Non-Christians will turn you in for reward and prestige.
Evan as the German people hated and murdered and abused and spat upon and stole from the Jews simply because they were Jewish, so will the non-Christian hate you because you are simply Christians (Luke 21:16-19).
Well, enough of that.
My point, we are living in Bible Times. We are about to experience many amazing and supernatural events prophesied in God’s Word.
Don’t let anyone tell you miracles will not follow. God is a God of miracles and wonders and mercy and wrath. He is God and all that entails.
Blessed be the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ and prepare for the coming Storm.
Have a blessed day!
