“In a moment your life can change forever. Without warning, you could find yourself in a situation in which you need Me desperately. Your world is being postured to fulfill what I have called into being long ago. It is heaving from within. The enemy has loosed lying and deceiving spirits upon those who are not aware of the truth in Jesus. You should have responded to My heart wooing long ago. One day it will be too late. You will not have enough oil to respond properly. Are you focused on My truth? Are you ready for whatever comes your way? You need to be! Much is changing fast.”
Isaiah 28:9-10 TLB
9) “Who does Isaiah think he is,” the people say, “to speak to us like this! Are we little children, barely old enough to talk?
10) “He tells us everything over and over again, a line at a time and in such simple words!”
Isaiah 48:3 NIV
“I foretold the former things long ago, my mouth announced them and I made them known; then suddenly I acted, and they came to pass.”
II Peter 3:8-9 NIV
8) But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.
9) The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
The “Leave It to Beaver days” have long since passed in case you haven’t noticed. Vile intrusions on our senses invade us at every moment. Intolerance is systematically replacing patience in our world. What would have been unthinkable even ten years ago has become almost commonplace today. Mankind is blindly responding to its father, the father of lies.
But Jesus! Because we are His, we can see the changes all around us with clarity and respond accordingly, if we are wise. This very moment God is doing what is necessary in each of those who are responding to His call to intimacy and bridal heart preparation. Our circumstances often must be seen with spiritual eyes. Our training may seem imperceptible, and our growth may appear non-existent; but none-the-less, we are in His hands and being formed to respond and overcome in our times as Jesus responded and overcame in His. Those who are listening and moving in God’s direction are being made ready for whatever is ahead.
