The Tree Of Life For You
We need more friends today than we have ever needed in the history of the United States of America.
We should unite instead of divide and love instead of hate and build up instead of tear down.
Sure, we have different opinions but let us not forget we are cut from the same mold. It’s true. All of us share the same lineage and bloodline.
Moreover all of us were born into sin with the Hope that Jesus Christ would cleanse us. We must love and believe in Him and turn away from our sin. That’s the only requirement.
Jesus said in Matthew 11:6 “And blessed is the one who is not offended by me.”
These are gigantic words to live up to. Of course Jesus always had and always will have a way with words. He is the word.
“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14)
So, I ask that you do not unfriend me. I need you and I hope that you need me. We need each other more than ever! All people!
Much has happened this year and more specifically the past several weeks.
- Natural disasters like the 7.8 magnitude earthquake in the country of Nepal.
- For the first time in U.S. history a dog (pet) infected a human with the Pneumonic Plague.
- Thousands of Police and the National Guard were deployed to Maryland for the Baltimore riots. Similar to the Ferguson riots.
- The Supreme Court hears arguments in the historic case of same-sex marriage and later rules states must allow same-sex marriage. Since when can an un-elected panel of jurors tell the states what they must do?
- The public school system in Fairfax County VA introduces a gender identity curriculum – the idea that there’s no such thing as 100 percent boys or 100 percent girls – you can be either gender.
- The economy is on a collision course with destiny. The dollar has never been weaker. The stock market swings 100 and 200 points seemingly every week while poverty is at an all-time high. We are witnessing the collapse of the dollar.
- The horrific shooting in Charleston South Carolina; Innocent people fatally shot.
Not to mention the state of Israel, ISIS, the Middle East and the war on terror.
ISIS is beheading and raping men, women and children. Christians and people of faith are being persecuted and murdered; all under the name of Radical Islam.
Additionally there is the Tetrad (4 blood moons) and the year of Shemitah (every 7 years debts are forgiven – God can increase or He can decrease His blessings. It may also be a time of judgment)
This is what the Bible says –
- Nation will rise against nation. There will be earthquakes, plagues, terrors and great signs from Heaven. (Matthew 24:7 and Luke21:11)
- In the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God (2 Timothy 3:1-4)
- God created us male and female (Mark 10:6)
- Jesus told us there would be signs in the sun and the moon and the stars, and on earth distress of nations in confusion. (Luke 21:25)
Doesn’t this sound familiar? Earthquakes, plagues, terror, lovers of self without self-control, brother against brother, nation against nation, blood moons, solar and lunar eclipse and the year of Shemitah…
It’s like everything predicted is coming to pass right now before our very eyes!
When the Jews settled in the Holy Land, they began to count and observe seven-year cycles. Every cycle would culminate in a Sabbatical year, known as Shemitah.
By counting sevens from then, the next Shemitah year is now from Sept. 25, 2014, through Sept. 13, 2015.
The last two Shemitah years of 2001 and 2008 saw the Twin Towers fall and the largest crash ever of the U.S. Stock Market.
During years of the Tetrad (4 Blood Moons) coinciding with the Jewish Feasts (Passover-Easter and Feast of Tabernacles) certain events have happened: 1-Jews expelled from Spain; 2- Israel became a nation; 3-Israel captures Jerusalem.
Combine this Shemitah year (2014/2015) along with the Tetrad (4 blood moons) falling on the Jewish Feasts (Passover/Easter/Feast of Tabernacles) and we have something that has never happened in over 2000 years since the time of Jesus. Never before! This is the first time.
Many Bible scholars are predicting life changing events for this year. Whether there are or not, all signs are pointing to the soon return of Christ!
Yes, no one knows the time Jesus will return (Matthew 24:36).
But Jesus did warn us “Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” (Luke 21:28)
It is my desire that all of my family, friends and acquaintances receive Jesus in their life while turning away from sin and turning towards Christ our Savior. We must have a contrite heart.
The time is now. Soon God will send His Son Jesus back to earth; the next big television event, higher ratings than the Super Bowl, more coverage than the Presidential election! The second coming of Christ is near! Are you ready?
Blow a trumpet in Zion; sound an alarm on my holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of the LORD is coming; it is near (Joel 2:1)
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God. (Revelation 2:7)
Let’s run our race with endurance… Focusing on Jesus, THE CHAMPION of our Faith Run
