The Season of His Second Coming...

February 22, 2017

The Season of His Return. 

   I have spent a good deal of time thinking about reading and researching and talking about the 'end times'

   The end times...that terms sounds a little gloomy and so this blog, well it is the same message but a different delivery with a positive connotation by using instead "The Season of His Second Coming" and talking in the affirmative that you are going to be ready. Are you ready? You know what I had never expected is that although the end times will be intense, it will also be a time of God using His people in a way that is blessed as He gets His messaged delivered to as many as will hear it before the time ends. Once He is here folks…that is it. No more second chances-just moaning. Me, I seem to be celebrating these days. Now, I am not an expert and this is brief but here is what I know about a book called mysterious but to me it is unfolding right in front of my eyes, Revelation.  

   Now, why are we going to reflect on the 22 verses of this the last book of the Bible? For a few reasons but the most dominant is that it is the only book of the Bible that promises a blessing to the one who reads and studies the book. Thonly one and that verse is found in Chapter 3 "God blesses the one who reads the words of this prophecy to the church, and He blesses all who will listen to it's message and obeys what it says, for the time is near". If you have been avoiding this book, stop. When this book was written…they had some time but we are here in the midst of this season. The most important reason I love this book is found in Chapter one and this is clear-how do we act and feel during the worst of times of the earth? Well, in the words of the Lord Himself found in verse 17: "Fear not I am the first and the last". Chapter 2 verse ten says, "Fear none of the things which you shall suffer". One of my personal favorite scriptures in the whole Bible is found in Revelation chapter three and start with verse 12 to 18 but here is what is says with brevity "since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth". I don’t intend to interpret the meanings of the whole book…I just want to invite you to ask the Lord for His insight and His wisdom that He would show you what you need to understand about the season of His coming and what the book of Revelation has for you to know. 

     Here is what I also enjoyed knowing about how God uses us…just look at what happened to the author of the book, they call him "John The Revelator". John, an original disciple of Jesus was banished for his Christian testimony to a secluded life on Patmos by the Roman government. Patmos is a sterile island about 20 miles in circumference in the Aegean Sea. Now, it is called ''Patimo'' or ''Patmosa'' meaning ‘my killing’. Being a sterile island it was unable to produce fruit bearing plants. How interesting that God would use such a place to bring John the Revelation of the living Jesus. The island itself lacked vitality. However, the favor of God brought verve or dynamism and hope. The book of Revelation is not pure mystery; it is our guide to life in the times of His return. John explains that although he was banished as punishment, he was an innocent man. Furthermore, what favor he obtained that God would reveal such magnificent and unspeakable things to him. God used his time of aloneness in this desolate but beautiful place to be where He revealed our future. The last is the first the Word says and this is the last book of the Bible. The Bible contains 66 books, 39 Old Testament and 27 New Testament. The book of Revelation is the last and has 22 significant verses. 

  There is a plethora of information out there about the end times. I stick to the Word. All confusion ends there, as the Word of God confirms the truth.  Although it is not necessary to agree on everything, most of us will agree that an end time event will occur. It does not matter when we think this begins, or how it will occur. I believe also that Revelation is not a book that happens in order. Nevertheless, being a blessing for every reader…open and begin. 

Study it.

Let the Holy Sprit reveal to you what you need to know.

Amen?

 

 

Amber's Angels

                                      AMBER’S ANGELS

         On January 26, 2011 my beautiful 16-year-old niece Amber Lynn Hiker died. How Amber died is still a small bit of a mystery. The doctors do say it was her own hand-a suicide. Her mom believes that there was too much evidence to overlook the possibly that someone else was there and may have been involved. I have asked the Lord so many questions surrounding her passing and He has answered every question quickly and t...

The Big 'C'

  The Big ‘C’

There is one time that when God says no-it is the best no heard. No you are not going to go anywhere I’m not finished with you yet. 

     The day I was diagnosed with cancer was not be the best day of your life. Adenocarcinoma. I remember seeing this in black and white on the lab form. And the doctors face as she told me. She seemed more upset than I was and she was so sweet.  

Then, my mind kind of switched. I went back in time. I still remember one of...

Bold Audacious Faith

BOLD, AUDACIOUS FAITH...

 

I spoke to my friend Andrew today by way of facebook. It can’t be more direct communication than that because he lives in Ghana Africa and I live in America. So, we write on facebook. Andrew is young enough to be my son. He is a beautiful man in every way. A better son I could not have prayed for, but he has his own mother and father who call him ‘son’. He is also a son of God.

Recently, we had both experienced a big disappointment in the sa...

Simple Grace

Simple Grace

 

     Some days I forget...I forget that I have a mansion in heaven. Somewhere I call ‘home’. I will see my daddy face to face who went before me. My grandmother Annie who was my rock on earth when I was a girl. I will see and hug tightly all the others I so dearly miss like my dog Brittany whom I loved with wild abandon. She was my baby. I will never shed another tear or have a thought called fear. Nor will I worry again-ever.

I will have eternity to exp...

Now Faith and Today God

June 9, 2014

NOW FAITH AND TODAY GOD

 

Faith is a house with many rooms.Plenty of room for doubt. Why? Doubt creeps in there and tests our faith…keeping it alive. Ever think about it this way? You might not even know what faith is until it is tested.

It will be…maybe you don’t have enough money, or your very ill, someone you know is in big trouble like a spouse or child, maybe your best friend and you don’t agree and can’t remedy things…maybe your loosing your job. 

 

Then, you ...

When God says "No"...

March 4, 2014

    When God says no...

 

There is usually a reason for it. My dad taught me once that when we ask the Lord for something, He always answers. His answer is either “yes”, “no” or “not now”.

 

My dad was a true prophet. He was never wrong-not even once when asked a question about anything. He sought the Lord, and the Lord always gave him the right answer. But you’d better be prepared to hear it because it was always a word from the Lord. My father once 3000 miles aw...

You Can Be Right or You Can Be Happy

 YOU CAN BE RIGHT OR YOU CAN BE HAPPY...

 

There are times to be strong. There are also times to sing songs, don’t we know about that. Those who are bright...Don’t have to be right, That's right. In fact we enjoy being wrong if it is right.

We know this bit of wisdom that does keep us tight. Sometimes you are not wrong, being wrong is right. You can either be right or you can be happy. There is nothing wrong with being right except when you have to be right. I have lear...

Prayer Works

           Prayer Works

 

      The Victory Prayer is an ever-present help in a time of trouble. It is an inspiration from God. It comes from His Word and His Word alone. It was something I researched for three years. It is an all-inclusive Christian Prayer, a daily devotion. It is a discipline in speaking the protection, benefits and rights you have that God well designed for you.

It is a decision to take God at His Word, as well as a tool to submit to His plans and not ...

Got Peace?

February 6, 2014

GOT PEACE?

 

There is only one path to this that works, completely. The sweet presence of Jesus, Prince of Peace. In all of human history there is only one person who has been able to make one day for world peace. That day is his birth. Christmas Day. I know the Olympic Games are amazing and they try to unite the world but only one day brings peace. Until He comes to rule in the thousand year reign there will not be peace on the earth for real. So for now enjoy Christmas day...
