“What are you not understanding about what I’m telling you through world events and weather patterns all around you? How clear do the times and seasons in which you live have to get before you move from your complacency and begin to live completely for Me? Do you realize that I inform you, My children, first, so that you are ready when I move My hand? It is for good reason. I want you to wake up and be ready to represent Jesus properly when the world is out of answers.
"You are not responding to My clear warnings. You are far from responding to what you see around you with My heart in mind. You are only concerned for your personal safety. Where is the heart of Jesus in My church? I want to place it in you. Come to Me now for what is needed to be formed in you. Come to be made ready for when I need to call upon you to represent the way My children are to live, no matter what is happening around them. Wake up! Listen to what I am saying. Repent of your foolish ways.”
Esther 4:13-14 AMP
13) Then Mordecai told them to return this answer to Esther. Do not flatter yourself that you shall escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews.
14) For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance shall arise for the Jews from elsewhere, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows but that you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this and for this very occasion?
Psalm 111:2 NIV
Great are the works of the Lord; they are pondered by all who delight in them.
Isaiah 30:21 NIV
Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”
One of the reasons that we have been given access to Father God through the blood of Jesus is to be able to discern the times and seasons, so that we can warn others that they may come to Christ. We are never to be date setters or doomsday prophets, but we are to be astute when it comes to Bible prophecy, applying it to the time in which we live. We are also to live our lives according to what we understand and learn from being in the Word and with our Father.
I believe that Bible prophecies are unfolding before us at an accelerated pace. I believe that we have a responsibility to take the knowledge that we are gaining and live the kind of life that will be most advantageous for the Lord to use us. We are to be prepared and ready to be used by Him, no matter what the time or season, or when the challenges come.
Make me ready, Lord,
