As in the Days of Noah

There are some things going on right now that should make us think…

I know I’m only scratching the surface here.  I don’t really believe any of these are overly significant on their own but collectively, it seems they should give one pause as to the days in which we live.  I certainly believe we are ever so close to the return of our Messiah.  We should be preparing our hearts and minds to endure until the end, to withstand persecution and tribulation.  We should be watching and praying, staying clothed, alert and aware of the times, so that He does not come to us as a thief but as our bridegroom ♥

» Interestingly, there are a slew of movies concerning Christianity being released this year.  I am not saying they are Biblical or accurate, just that they reference Biblical people, places, and events.  In fact, from all I have heard, most of them have blatant inaccuracies and false representations, the truth twisted with lies, leaven worked all throughout the dough.  In fact, that should be further evidence of the times.

  1. Son of God movie on February 28th – allegedly about Jesus, the Son
  2. God’s Not Dead on March 21st – supposed proof of God, the Father’s existence
  3. Noah on March 28th – very loose portrayal of Noah, whose family were the sole survivors of the Flood, who is referenced in the Bible concerning the End Times (Matthew 24:37-38)
  4. Heaven is For Real on April 14th (Passover) – about a boy who says he saw heaven and it is real
  5. Left Behind on October 3rd (Yom Kippur) – based on the very popular book about the alleged rapture with Nicolas Cage
  6. Exodus: Gods and Kings on December 12th –  representation of the mass exodus of God’s people from Egypt when He delivered them through Moses (a picture of Christ), played by Christian Bale (a picture of when the Christians bale out of here?!?)

And in recent and upcoming news:

Are you Watching and Praying?

Matthew 26:40-41, “Then He came to the disciples and found them asleep, and said to Peter, ‘What, could you not watch with Me one hour? Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.’”

This is an excerpt from Homeward Bound, written by Michael Boldea Jr, grandson of Dumitru Duduman.  So very timely!  Please read the whole post here: http://mikeboldea.blogspot.com/2013/09/watching-and-praying.html

“Men have always gone to great lengths to skirt accountability, and to this day they continue to do so, even going so far as denying what they see with their own eyes.

It’s not as though the disciples didn’t know the struggle Christ was facing at the time. It’s not as though He did not tell them that His soul was exceedingly sorrowful, even unto death, or ask them explicitly to watch with Him.

Christ had done this. He had explained the circumstances to His disciples, had asked them to watch with Him, and yet, when He returned he found them asleep.

We have also been told by Christ, and explicitly so, what to expect during these last days, and what the landscape will look like. When He returns will He likewise find us asleep?

The struggle, the burden, the hardship isn’t the knowing, it is not knowledge itself, but battling against the weakness of the flesh and remaining in a state of watchfulness and prayerfulness until the Christ returns.

We know it won’t be long. We know His return is closer today than it was yesterday, and it will be closer tomorrow than it was today. When He returns He expects to find us awake, watchful, and prayerful, because it is what He asked of us, and it is in obedience that we receive our reward.

Watching and praying are not optional. We cannot choose, based on how busy we are, or how hectic our schedule, whether we will be watchful and prayerful on a given day, or during a given time period.

As children of God, as those redeemed, saved, and sanctified, we must understand the importance of being watchful and prayerful, and understand that slumber and the weakness of the flesh are not the only enemies we must contend with, but so are distractions and misplaced loyalties.

If the enemy can’t cause us to slumber, if the flesh cannot cause us to enter into temptation, the devil will settle for keeping us distracted, and keeping us from praying and being watchful for those things we ought to be watchful for…

A wise man knows to put first things first and watching and praying must be at the top of the list of what each of us ought to be doing today!

Watching, waiting, and praying… How my heart longs for you Jesus ♥

The Remnant Church and the End-Time Testimony of Jesus Christ

I believe we are the end time saints, the remnant church of the last days… And I believe this post is an awesome encouragement & admonishment for us as we face this ever darkening world.

“Therefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand!”

Read the post here => The Remnant Church and the End-Time Testimony of Jesus Christ

“The Remnant church is, at its core and most fundamentally, God’s witness here on earth. Truly we have been called first and foremost to be a witness. Now most saints know that this word in its Greek form translates to martyr. Does that mean that every saint, every witness since the beginning of the church has been called to martyrdom? Certainly not. Yet let us not forget brothers and sisters that in every century God’s people here on earth have been persecuted and martyred for their faith. The danger for us saints in the Western world in the last 100 years has been that we have not been so-called.

Now, one would imagine that living in an atmosphere where one is allowed to worship freely without any state or religious interference that Christendom would thrive, yet, if we look at the state of Europe and North America we see something that at best, is a shallow faith…

The Remnant man or woman carries their cross. Carrying a cross is a lonely business. Its their very loneliness that compels them to seek an even closer walk with the Lord. The trials of the cross, the narrowness of the path, the desert and wilderness that often stretches out before them, a lack of fitting in, no acknowledgement of anything that you do, what you do you do in secret, you only seek to see the Lord high and lifted up…

The Remnant saint knows something of the glory of God. He has been touched by it, ruined for the things of this word by it. He has a fire that burns in his bones that will not and cannot be quenched. He is single-minded in his devotion. He arises in the morning with thoughts of His Lord.”


Not alone.

Like so many bloggers, now that we have a blog, it hasn’t been touched.  It’s so clean, so untouched, so daunting.  What is this blog’s purpose?  Why the need for yet another blog on the world wide web?  Why now?

The main purpose of this blog is to let you know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE!  Not alone in your struggles, not alone in your faith, not alone in your failures, not alone in your loneliness, not alone in your feelings, not alone in the chaos, not alone in the storm… not alone, even as it seems the world is closing in, even as the darkness grows, even as the end draws near.

We’re here with you.  Your Creator is closer than your next breath, the next word, the next thought.  You were never alone.

On the flip side, this blog is not here to flatter you and make you feel good.  It is not hear to tickle your ears with pleasantries.

This blog is here to speak the truth, plainly, directly, and in love.  Truth hurts.  Truth offends.  Truth wounds.  Yet the truth brings healing and freedom that this world cannot offer you.

This blog is here to wake you up!  To warn the masses. To be a beacon of light in the overspreading darkness of these days.

We hope it will challenge you.  Confront you.  Convict you.

Our prayer and heart’s cry for you is repentance, redemption and hope.

Only to be found in  Jesus Christ.  Yeshua HaMashiach.  Jesus the Messiah.
