Almost 2000 years ago Jesus told us there would be earthquakes in diverse places, which would be one of the signs signaling His return. I believe we are in the window of time Jesus warned us of. The earth is shaking and people are beginning to take notice.
It amazes me that most people choose to ignore the signs, or prophecy that Jesus admonishes us would occur before his second coming.
Yesterday was Palm Sunday. Most churches don’t teach the prophetic fulfillment that is associated with this day. Instead many churches pass out palm leaves and the people take then but miss there significance. The Pastor will talk about the triumphant entry, but the real meaning is most often lost in 2000 years of tradition.
When Jesus rode in on the donkey, he was fulfilling, to the second, the prophecy that is found in Daniel 9. Messiah was riding in and the people of Jerusalem didn’t have a clue. Later on Jesus weeps over the city saying: Jerusalem, Jerusalem, how I would have gathered you as a hen gathers her chicks but you did not know the days of your visitation.
He is holding the nation of Israel, collectively responsible to know the time of the Messiah! Heck, it was written in Daniel and all they had to do was keep track of the years Gabriel told them would pass before Messiah would come! They missed and the rest is history.
However, we are also held accountable to know the season we are in, to watch for the signs of His coming and as Jesus tells us, to watch and be ready.
This brings me back to the earthquakes in diverse places. Folks, it’s happening right in front of us. When we take the other signs we are told will happen before the end: wars and rumors of wars, famines, pestilence and troublesome times, surely these are the days He warned us would come.
In closing todays post: There’s a whole lot of shaking going on and this should be a wake up call! Make sure you tell a friend about what is happening. Let’s be bold! People need to know what is going on and what is coming. What was foretold will unfold….
I’m on assignment and my flight got all screwed up! I’m sitting in LAX with a 5 hour delay! Oh well.
