Little clouds…

When Elijah was praying for the drought to come to an end, he sent his servant to see if God had answered seven times. It wasn’t until the seventh time that he came back and said there was a cloud the size of his hand visible in the sky. That’s when he went to the king of Israel and told him that the drought was over.

God uses people who believe in Him to accomplish His will and His purpose. He also uses little clouds to bring an end to a drought. God can do anything, even when people don’t expect Him to. Why don’t people believe that God can do these things… anything that He wants to do?

Today, there are too many people who have placed limits on God. They have put Him in a box that they have created for Him so that He is more relatable than the God of the Bible. In their minds He can only do certain things or rather He can only be God up to a point. We should not put limits on God but people do it all the time.

It’s a good thing for us that God doesn’t have limits on His love for us. I’m praying that more people will seek the Lord as their savior soon.

On the cross…

Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: And I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; And for comforters, but I found none. They gave me also gall for my meat; And in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink. Psalm 69:20‭-‬21 KJV

This was fulfilled by Jesus on the day of His crucifixion. God knew then what was needed in order to pay the bill for our sins. The death and resurrection of Jesus was the only way to reconcile our sins so that we could have a place in Heaven if we will believe in Him for our salvation.

Last days…

‘In the last days,’ God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams. Acts 2:17

The day I began writing this was March 7th. This would’ve been my father’s 98th birthday if he had been blessed to live that long. But in God’s timing, he took my father from this world in August 2001. So…back to the original question in the title: the last days. Are we really living in them? With everything happening in the world and in the different media outlets, I would answer that with a hard YES

There are so many things happening in the world that are fulfilling the prophecies found in the Bible that it would be hard for you to say that we are not living in the end times. Granted, a nuclear war has not started, thankfully, and the economies of the world have not bottomed out but those things won’t happen until the time of the tribulation foretold in Revelation. The best news that I can give you is that the church will be taken up before these things happen.

Some people do not believe that believers will be taken up before this time happens but the church, the Bride of Christ, will not be here while God lets His wrath loose on those who refuse to believe in Jesus as their Savior. It is your choice of belief in Him that determines where your eternal destination is, not the choice of God. He would like to save every person but He knows that everyone won’t believe in Jesus for their salvation. Some will turn to Him like some young people are doing now in America…but not all.

Life will go on until that day when He comes for His Bride just like it has for many years. Then things will change drastically for the whole world, at least for the next seven years. Make sure that you know and believe in Him as your Savior before that day comes.
