As I open this page I think I have not much to say on this first day of the last month of 2021.
December is a good month to reflect, asking ourselves – are there some things I need to finally settle so, at the close of this month, I can start fresh in 2022?
I can readily confess moving through this month and entering the 22nd year of this century 2000 does not have the anticipated bright horizons of just a couple of years ago.
From a natural worldview, the goodnesses of freedom are . . . well, they are – just not.
The freedoms and abundance we squandered are disappearing quickly and in all honesty with you, I don’t see them coming back. Nor do I see what is taking its place as anything desirable. I just don’t, Folks.
I’m not expecting miracles from on High to turn back and revive the Republic we once very loosely held. I’m just not. What I do expect is many miracles for GOD’s beloved, obedient children. I expect in times to come, however weeks, months, or years, it may be that Father GOD will be supplying manna from heaven to feed His own if that be necessary. I expect some folks in sincerity and truth to quietly seek out members of the Remnant to help them connect with GOD. I don’t expect a great worldwide revival but I do expect some Folks to get serious with GOD as we see our cushy, material world crash down around us.
I don’t write these things to sadden you. I write them to warn you. I write them to tell you EXCITING times are coming for the Obedient People of GOD. If you are HIS, you have NOTHING to fear. You have a Perfect Father who loves you perfectly who will never forsake you. Do I expect persecution for the Remnant? Yes, like we Western Christians have not experienced heretofore. BUT GOD will be faithful to His own.
I urge you to use this month of December to confess all known sin in your life and ask Holy Spirit to reveal to you your hidden sins that you may confess, and with His grace, forsake them. As I type the word you, I am profoundly reminded this means ME, for sure, for sure.
I often watch a man from Missouri, he has his own youtube channel and from there he has been urging his listeners to prepare themselves, particularly to spiritually prepare themselves with Scripture, prayer, and fellowship with like-minded people.
Our Bibles must become the most valued and precious possession we have – while we have them. And it could only be good to read biographies and autobiographies of men and women who have endured persecution and have remained faithful to GOD. (I have some recommendations if you are interested.) This I believe we NEED to do. Now in the month of December and all months moving forward.
I am mindful this is a heavy opine-ing. But what kind of friend would I be if I failed to share what I believe is on our horizon? But let’s say I am wrong — what will you lose if you seek GOD in this month of December with more earnest, sincerity, and truth than you did last month?
Wow. Looks like I had more to say than I thought. 🙂
