Matt. 24, Mark 13, Luke 21: The 3 witnesses to the Prophesy of Jesus concerning our time. As I went through the prophesies I counted 15 events concerning the “latter days” 2 Tim. 3 and all seemed happening at this time. But to understand the prophesy you need to consider the questions (Matt. 24:1-3)that Jesus was answering and the Rabbinical approach to teaching. That approach is to tell you about what I am going to tell you, (Matt.24:4-14). Answer the important question , Matt.24:15-20.) And then go back and open the main question: Matt.24:21- 36.) And then add to it what is most important, (Matt.24:37 – Matt.25.) Concerning the Rapture or removal of the Church.
So on top of the list were: wars, famines, pandemics, earthquakes and the return of Israel to the Land. And then what about the good old U.S.A. ?????????
Big judgment coming about killing babies when we should be concerned about how precious life is. Each time a child is conceived it is an eternal being, regardless of the intent. This is an eternal soul given by God and that eternal soul should be guaranteed the right to life.
We are also doing, as a nation, what caused the 1929 Great Depression. Only this time it is going to be far more painful as fewer families are living on a small farm. So today, we have:
Mortgage Rates Hit 15-Year High At 6.7% — More than Double Since Last Year
World Food Prices Rise To Highest Level In 10 Years
New unemployment filings in U.S. rise to highest level in 8 months
Fed officials expect higher unemployment rates by year end, signal stimulus easing, interest hike
US: Fed prepared to raise interest rates ‘aggressively’
European Central Bank will raise interest rates in July for first time in 11 years
Fed likely to boost interest rates by three-quarters of a point this week
Oil and Gas Prices Spike to Highest Level in 7 Years.
Israel terror threat level raised to highest amid spree of attacks
Grocery Inflation Hits Highest Level in 43 Years Despite Biden’s ‘Zero’ Inflation Messaging
And we now owe a big share of a 31 Trillion Dollar debt that can never be paid off.
So, Better consider taking some time to make sure you have oil for your lamp. Matt.25.
God’s Truth are the bones, diversity is only the covering. The Holy Spirit will not confirm with power what is not God’s Truth. That is why the church today is full of words with little to no supernatural confirmation from the Holy Spirit, 2 Tim.3:5. The more I personally absorb the New Testament the more I know this is true. Everything in God’s creation is exact, look at the atomic element chart or physics or creation. It is the same in HIS spiritual world. The Body of Christ has bones/doctrine/truth on which to build, 1 Cor. 12. All of the parts are different but they all do fitly join together, Eph.4:11-16, John 17:20-26.
Seems we do like to invent, keep and kill the sacred cows of vain traditions all at the same time if in the flesh. So if in the flesh as we decide what to keep or kill we must also take more more care not to destroy God’s Truth. Spiritually anymore, without Biblical unity I feel rather lost. Of course this makes for humility as I know that I am not always right. But I do trust in the Truth of what is considered to be the New Testament. And feel I have a lot more to go to even understand all of the New Testament. So I have no need to jump the fence to try to build on other conflicting concepts or so called spiritual truth.
As to the so called denominations or divisions, there is no excuse for them to exist at all in the New Testament. There is but one Church of Christ Jesus as LORD, all who love, honor and obey HIM are eternal members of the Kingdom of God. So what we need is to focus on what Jesus taught and take it to the bank in unity to become a member of HIS Church. We have no right to try to change the Early Church structure, given by the Holy Spirit, in any way at all unless it is more powerful in lifting up Jesus as LORD. Our Lord and Master sent us the Holy Spirit to continue the process of the building of HIS Church/Body of Christ/Bride/Wife/Rod of Iron for HIM in HIS absence. We will deeply enjoy the final union of Christ and HIS Church in Rev. 19 for eternity if we keep the faith, once delivered in tact as per the New Testament (HIS last Will & Testament.)
The prayer of Jesus in John 17 will eventually come into reality. When Jesus returns, I want to be watching for HIM with lots of Holy Spirit oil and a good fire of loving humility and obedience or we will miss our flight. Matt.25.
2 John 1:9-10, “Anyone who runs on ahead and does not remain in the doctrine of Christ [that is, one who is not content with what He (Jesus) taught], does not have God; but the one who continues to remain in the teaching [of Christ does have God], he has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching [but diminishes or adds to the doctrine of Christ], do not receive or welcome him into your house, and do not give him a greeting or any encouragement;”
2 Timothy 3:15-17 Amplified Bible, “And from childhood you have known the sacred writings (Hebrew Scriptures) which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus [surrendering your entire self to Him and having absolute confidence in His wisdom, power and goodness]. 16 All Scripture is God-breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately—behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage]; 17 so that the [a] man of God may be complete and proficient, outfitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

Wisdom from the past:
“Pentecost came with the sound of a mighty rushing wind, a violent blast from heaven! Heaven has not exhausted its blasts, but our danger is we are getting frightened of them.” -Smith Wigglesworth “When you strip it of everything else, Pentecost stands for power and life. That’s what came into the church when the Holy Spirit came down on the day of Pentecost.” -David Wilkerson I owe everything to the gift of Pentecost. For fifty days the facts of the Gospel were complete, but no conversions were recorded. Pentecost registered three thousand souls. It is by fire that a holy passion is kindled in the soul whereby we live the life of God. The soul’s safety is in its heat. Truth without enthusiasm, morality without emotion, ritual without soul, make for a Church without power.” -Samuel Chadwick
