(Am Not Ashamed) I woke up this morning with this question ringing loudly in my ear. With visions of 21 Christians being beheaded on the news. This is a quote from Greta Vansusteren on face book this morning: “21 Christians beheaded by ISIS in Libya and it is NOT page A1 in my New York Times edition — but buried on page A6. How could the beheading of 21 Christians not be front page?”
It’s growing, the snake is creeping, the beast is alive and well and yet the World & the Body of Christ is slumbering soundly in drunken visions of worldly pleasures. “The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful.” The world cares more about a filthy movie than they do about the slaughter of Christians. As the Fifty shades of grey breaks box office records the slaughter of innocents is pushed to the back.
Loudly ignoring the warnings of Christ and the disciples. What do you think Jesus meant when he said “Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.”
The wrath of satan has been unleashed on the world because he knows his time is short and the Body of Christ is sound asleep. Basking in the pleasures of this world. Wake up. Tribulation is here, the snake pit has been opened wide, the abyss with it’s commander ‘Abaddon’ has appeared and we can only remain silent? We can only say too sad, but we can’t talk about it. We will scare people? This is very dire, the world is reeling like a drunkard and we sleep on? Beheading after beheading, slaughter begetting slaughter, the burning alive of innocents and you think that the seals have not been opened? Or do Christians even know what the seals of the Revelation of Christ are? Have they been lulled to sleep by the snake charmers of the world?
Have they been lulled into a false sense of security by satan and his promises of fame and fortune? The world was lulled to sleep at the beginning of WWII also. Lulled into thinking that the evil in Germany wouldn’t affect or come for each of us?
Atrocities unimaginable were wrought on an unsuspecting world during that time and now we can only look back and say why? Why weren’t we paying attention? It’s the same now. Have we allowed this evil to spread and creep so far that we can not recover? The Bible is on fire with prophecy coming to life and all we can do is deny.
Isaiah 24:20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.
Job 12:25 They grope in darkness with no light; he makes them stagger like drunkards.
Psalm 107:27 They reeled and staggered like drunkards; they were at their wits’ end.
Isaiah 1:28 But rebels and sinners will both be broken, and those who forsake the LORD will perish.
Isaiah 24:1 See, the LORD is going to lay waste the earth and devastate it; he will ruin its face and scatter its inhabitants…
Isaiah 28:7 And these also stagger from wine and reel from beer: Priests and prophets stagger from beer and are befuddled with wine; they reel from beer, they stagger when seeing visions, they stumble when rendering decisions.
Matthew 24: “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone. “For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. “For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark…
Revelation 13:3-4 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
