I Say Unto All--Watch!

Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
Mark 13:35-37

An old hymn written in 1894 by James Kirk joyfully rings:

"I am watching for the coming of the glad millennial day,
When our bless├Ęd Lord shall come and catch His waiting bride away.

Oh! my heart is filled with rapture as I labor, watch, and pray,

For our Lord is coming back to earth again."

What a joyous thought!  Jesus, the King returning in grand and glorious splendor arriving to reign for a magnificent 1000 years....If a loud screeching of tires sound could be applied to this post it would come in right about here.  Before that precious day arrives there is the matter of the increasing birth pains Jesus spoke about.  Mark warned of this time by recording, "And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows."  Mark 13:7-8

One thing is certain! The rate at which strange and unusual occurrences are happening is increasing.  Just consider this video by Fidockwave213:  SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS PROPHETIC EVENTS FEBRUARY 2013 - YouTube

March has the potential for great catastrophe!  First, consider the arrival of President Obama in Jerusalem on the 20th of March (If Netanyahu can form a government by then).  Any who has been watching the rise in natural disasters understands that there is a strong correlation between these disasters on a nation and that nation's record against Israel or in support of a two-state plan.  However, this date is even more significant.  Check any Gregorian Calendar to Hebrew Calendar on the web and you will see that this date, March 20th, is the date of the 9th of Nisan on the Hebrew Calendar.  The 9th of Nisan is always 5 days before the Passover and it is the day the JESUS ENTERED JERUSALEM in triumph but was later rejected.  He did leave a prophecy about this, "I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive."  John 5:43

Are we seeing a man who is a forerunner of another "Messiah" enter Jerusalem on the same day?  What's more is that the President is supposed to visit the temple mount without Israeli security from the Arab side of the area so that he may visit the Al Aqsa Mosque.  Watch for trouble from this--it is already brewing!!

Add to this the potential to poke God in the eye with a national declaration in favor of what He calls an abomination, and we have the makings of a rather turbulent March.  The US Supreme Court will begin hearing arguments on the 26th of this month on the issue of Proposition 8 and gay marriage.  Again, national rulings in favor of wickedness are another trigger for Divine wrath.  Marriage is a shadow of God's everlasting relationship to Israel and Christ's everlasting relationship with the church.  God has not changed His mind about what is or is not sin no matter how many reprobate "ministers" say He has.  Even the President has weighed in on this.  Watch!  

By the way, to the North of the US, the Canadian Supreme Court has just illegalized free speech.  If you tell someone that homosexuality is a sin just like adultery, pedophilia, or any other sin for that matter, you can be charged with a hate crime.  This came about when a former homosexual was delivered and began to pass out tracts to those practicing this sin.  He was arrested and charged with a hate crime.  Supreme Court muzzles free speech in Canada, rules against Catholic pro-family activist |

The window is quickly closing on the church to witness.  The night is coming when no man can work.  SO WORK!In the meantime, prayerfully watch as March may go out like a lion. Remember, Jesus is Soon2Come and what a triumphal entry that will be!!!

For I am the LORD, I change not...
Malachi 3:16a

  1. 1. Troublesome times are near,
    filling men's hearts with fear.
    Freedoms we all hold dear,
    now are stake.
    Humble your hearts to God.
    safe from the chastening rod.
    Sink away pilgrims trod,
    christians away.

    Cho. Jesus is coming soon,
    morning or night or noon.
    Many will meet their doom,
    trumpets will sound.
    All the dead shall rise,
    righteously in the sky.
    Going where no one ever dies,
    heavenward bound.

    2. Troubles will soon be o're,
    happy forevermore.
    When we meet on that shore,
    free from all care.
    Rising up in the sky,
    telling this world good-bye.
    Homeward we then shall fly,
    glory we'll share.
