For Such A Time As This

We are a chosen generation, we have been chosen for such a time as this.
We have been chosen to live out our lives in the end times, to be a part of God's glory that shall fill the earth.
Everything unfolding has been prophesied, though we do not always see a prophecy fullfilled when we think it will be or when it was prophesied, but God's word does not return void.
Now is a time to draw near to the Lord, while He draws near to you. He will be our strength during the time coming upon us, and He is now our strength.
It is only when we do not give Him everything to carry that we find ourselves without strength.
For He is our strength in any situation.
I see America in serious trouble, we watch as prophecy is fulfilled daily right before our eyes, we have seen great apostasy, and deception, and at the same time, the church is being judged. Pastors falling by the wayside, leaders in sexual sin, false teaching abounding, the body of Christ leaving the church in droves. We are the church, but so many are leaving organized religion, they are tired of the the false teachings and heresy being taught from many pulpits, they are meeting in homes and even cyber church seeking fellowship with like minded believers.
Rightly so, this is what the new testament in the book of Hebrews was speaking about, to not forsake the assembling. It was needed then as it is greatly needed now. But it is fellowship that can occur anywhere. Not where we meet. But that we MEET.
Because many saints are not meeting together and praying for one another, as times grow worse and worse they will not have the strength to stand, and will fall away.
Even more important we need our God. We need to cling to him, though we need the fellowship to encourage and pray for one another, we need to hear from God, and know when He is directing us. If we do not have these things in place we will not be able to stand on our own. And God inhabits our praise! So Praise Him especially in troubles.
As our nation gets weaker, through natural disasters, and the money crises and stock market crash, housing crises, food crises, none shall help us. Everything shall wax worse and worse. Attempts by man shall fail, it is only God that can save us.
We shall fall as Babylon fell, we will be attacked from within and from without. We shall not be able to rise from the ashes and the world will watch as our nation burns.
Only the Lord can change the day or the hour of His appointed time.
Many do not want to hear the truth, so as I speak forth this word you close your ears and eyes, you think I am speaking negative word because this is what you have been taught, but what you have feared is coming upon you.
It is not a time to fear, but to trust in the name of the Lord, He is holy and true to His word, and He has promised to be our fortress and strong tower and as we dwell in the secret place He will keep us in the shelter of His wings.
We must abide in His word and let Him speak into our hearts in this time, not the media, not the progNosticators of wall street but reading the word of God, the good news, that He Jesus Christ is our hope.
We cannot trust in the arm of the flesh but only in the living God.
We will be tested, and we are now in that test, where is our trust, who is our trust in? It cannot be in the government it cannot be in our neighbors and friends nor husband and wife, it must be in the LIVING GOD.
Where will we put our faith? Will we be like Peter and swear that we will stand with the Lord no matter what comes? And when the time comes will we stand, or will we deny.
Luk 18:8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
I see the people crying out for someone to help, and then shall the antichrist come and be welcomed. Because they refused to repent, they refused to turn to the Lord.
Of course he will not announce himself as such, but he will be known by everyone as their savior. He will do miracles and he will do everything Jesus Christ did on earth so the people will presume it is he, but this is the great deception that the people are being prepared for at this time. Most didn't want Jesus Christ to be Lord, so now they have chosen a savior a leader much like King Saul, because they do not want God to rule over them, they want to do as they choose. And this leader will be an incarnation of Lucifer, the fallen angel. H will rise to power. Look up for your redemption draweth nigh.
The new age has carefully been planned, and is now everywhere on the earth but most do not have any idea that this is happening around them, it is all part of the deception coming. It has infiltrated the teachings in the church, so many Christians will not see the deception and will follow the antichrist, who will be brought in by the new age paradigm shift. In which they have been working to change the consciousness of the world to be a one world government and one world religion.
This shift is in the thinking of man, they have brought in mediation, and other tools to teach the mind to be receptive to their mindset.
Most of the liberals have already shifted to this consciousness, but they are totally unaware this is happening in their minds.
We have been warned by so many but it is when we do not walk in the Spirit that we become unaware of these deceptions, and yet
many Christians are influenced through the spirit by angels of light.
But it will be those who trust in God that shall prevail. The Lord has made promises to His church, we read the warnings and promises in Revelations, and we see that He will keep those who have trusted Him, who have stood in the midst of the trials.
Rev 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
This is the hour we have been called to, we are the John the Baptist coming out of the wilderness, we have been prepared for such a time as this. We do not come out in fancy cars or clothes, we have died or are dying to self and our life is now His. We are accepted in the beloved, we are new creatures in Christ Jesus, we no longer live but Christ lives in us.
We know we are accepted in the beloved and that he loves us so much, because we are His love slaves.
We are a peculiar people, and do not believe we are more special, but we have said YES to Jesus and NO to the world. It is a choice we are given, and we have said YES. We shall obey you.
We are called to prepare the way of the Lord, to cry out to the church and to the world to repent, the Lord is near.
He wants a bride without spot or wrinkle. We cannot listen or allow our ears to be tickled by smooth words, we need to hear a word that pricks our heart by the Holy Spirit, that causes us to see ourselves the way we really are, so that we can walk in holiness before Him.
Those who obey Him, and who have been preparing their hearts, and not bent their knee to Baal, are His called in this hour. It is Him we worship, it is Him we seek after, it is He to whom we have given over our life.
We are handmaidens and sons and daughters of Christ, we have thrown away our idols, and distractions to serve and worship the living God.
We know Him and we know each other, He will lead us, He will give us His orders, he will reign, He is the glory and the lifter of our heads.
HAVE NO FEAR.
Though all may fall around us, we trust in the name of our Lord, our time will come and His light shall shine upon us and around us.
He shall call us to to do great exploits, come let us exalt His holy name, worthy is the lamb that was
We are in the hour of trial, and we have been called for such a time as this.
