The End Times

SHARING MY HEART AND PASSION
FOR CREATIVITY, FINE ART AND THE BIBLE
Hello Dear Ones!
We are living in very surreal times. The Bible is unfolding daily before us. It’s time to seek God and KNOW Him, His Word and His voice. When we are walking with God, there is comfort in knowing that He holds the world in His hands, and nothing surprises Him. He neither slumbers nor sleeps. He is like no other. We can trust Him COMPLETELY with our lives no matter what happens on this earth. It may look like everything is falling apart, yet HE IS STILL ON THE THRONE. And actually a lot of things are coming together and quickly. Life as we have known it has dramatically changed. We can’t climb under a rock or stick our heads in the sand to avoid everything going on around us.
Be reassured that GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL. The world system may be spinning out of control, but GOD’S KINGDOM WILL NEVER BE SHAKEN NOR WILL IT EVER COME TO AN END. In fact, God’s Kingdom is advancing and soon we will see even more Scripture unfold.
In the Book of Daniel, the Scriptures speak of THE END TIMES. Clearly, we are now living in the end times. And watching Israel (GOD’S LAND) is vitally important to knowing what’s ahead. Michael the Archangel has the job of watching over Israel.
It’s not uncommon to have a hard time understanding some Scriptures. But just reading the Scriptures gives you the opportunity to be enlightened to the Truth. Ask God to reveal the meaning as you read.
Let’s read Daniel Chapter 12
“At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people—everyone whose name is found written in the book—will be delivered. 2 Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt. 3 Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. 4 But you, Daniel, roll up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge.”
5 Then I, Daniel, looked, and there before me stood two others, one on this bank of the river and one on the opposite bank. 6 One of them said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, “How long will it be before these astonishing things are fulfilled?”
7 The man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, lifted his right hand and his left hand toward heaven, and I heard him swear by him who lives forever, saying, “It will be for a time, times and half a time. When the power of the holy people has been finally broken, all these things will be completed.”
8 I heard, but I did not understand. So I asked, “My lord, what will the outcome of all this be?”
9 He replied, “Go your way, Daniel, because the words are rolled up and sealed until the time of the end. 10 Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.
11 “From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. 12 Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of the 1,335 days.
13 “As for you, go your way till the end. You will rest, and then at the end of the days you will rise to receive your allotted inheritance.”
Help us to humble ourselves and pray and seek Your face and turn from any ways that are not pleasing to You. Forgive us Lord. Heal us and heal our land. Give us revelation for the times that we now live in and how to prepare for the days ahead. Amen.
