Word-Filled Wednesday ~#120~ You Just Won't Believe Your Eyes!

"Look at the nations and watch ~
and be utterly amazed.
For I [GOD] am going to do something 
in your days
that you would not believe,
even if you were told."
~Habakkuk 1:5
"We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in Him. According to the Lord's own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words." ~1 Thessalonians 4:14-18
Something must be in the air. Do you feel it? 

Something is going on with God's people. 

I see two things happening ~ 1) the enemy is at work trying, with possibly his last desperate efforts before the Lord comes back, to put division between God's people and get our eyes off of our purpose. 2) I think the Lord is preparing us for His return ~ of which we DO NOT KNOW when that will be (1 Thess. 5:1-5) ~ but it must be soon. 

Last week, I said a little about the 1st issue, but this week, I feel so sure of the 2nd issue because it seems that this theme is everywhere, lately . . . 

We recently left a church we were attending, but before we did, a precious pastor was teaching our Sunday School on the end times. Just THRILLING stuff. And SO timely ~ so many things ~ good AND bad ~ seem to be falling right into place. Then, at the new church we've been attending, the pastor is preaching on . . . the end times! It is amazing. 

Did you pay attention to the Scriptures that I posted, above? God is about to do AMAZING things. Wow. If GOD SAYS they're amazing . . . we had better hold on to our hats! 

I think the 2nd Scripture that I posted talks about those amazing things that we just might live to see in our lifetime ~ JESUS HIMSELF SAID that He will come again when the trumpet sounds and at the voice of the archangel. Are your ears itching to hear those sweet and mighty sounds? Do you strain to listen to the rustlings, do you feel a stirring in the air? 

And when that happens, Christians who have passed away before us will rise to meet Him in the air! Can you imagine?! Do you know why all the graves in Christian cemeteries are positioned with the bodies' feet to the east? Because Jesus will return from the east and the dead will rise to face Him [Matt. 24:27]. Incredible.

And then . . . after those precious souls have joined Him, WE will meet Jesus in the sky. O Glorious Day! Doesn't that excite you? We will be with Him forever

And the Word tells us to "encourage each other with these words." Oh, I hope you are encouraged. 

So, when you watch or read the news, when you have been mistreated or persecuted, when the skies turn dark and the rain pelts in the night ~ think on these things. Pray for yourself and other believers, that we will not be one of those who are losing our way and hindering the Lord's purpose and pray for persecuted believers and for fruitful harvest everywhere. There will be darkness before the dawn of Christ's return, but He will never leave nor forsake us. 
Wonderful things are ahead . . . you just won't believe your eyes!
