I just love end times prophecy.
In fact, I can’t even remember
what my heart was like
before facilitating the Daniel study.
Understanding the heart of Daniel
during the time of Babylon
has shown me how to be a Servant of God
in the midst of a culture that’s pagan.
Seeing the angels
and hearing the Word of the Lord
about the coming of Jesus and the End times
all coincide with the Gospel message,
Old Testament prophets,
and the Revelation that Jesus gave to John.
My desire to dig in to end times,
and understand spiritual weather patterns.
started with the Book of Luke,
Chapter 12 - When the Holy Spirit
smacked me over the head
with the verses 49-59.
This occurred in March of 2020,
right after the Coronavirus.
I heard Jesus say,
“I did not come to bring peace.
I came to divide.
I have a terrible baptism ahead of me,
and I wish the world were all ready burning.”
I fell to my face in fear and humility,
and knew right away the Lord was not playing.
This is when the His Spirit showed me
the Day the Lord is coming soon.
Ask yourself -
Why would Jesus want the world to burn?
Why would Jesus want to divide men?
Why would Jesus want us to watch
the weather patterns, on earth and in heaven?
Well, the answer is love.
It always has been.
The Day of the Lord is coming soon.
Final judgment has always been God’s plan.
He has just been giving us time.
Time to repent and do what is right.
Time to render our hearts to Him.
Listen to this.
As Jesus was sitting
on the Mount of Olives,
the disciples came to him privately -
there were no crowds around.
They wanted to know
what Jesus meant
when He pointed to the temple buildings
in Jerusalem, and said, “Truly I tell you,
not one stone here will be left on another;
every one will be thrown down.”
The disciples asked,
“Tell us, when will this happen,
and what will be the sign
of your coming and of the end of the age?”
“Watch out that no one deceives you.
For many will come in my name,
claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many.
You will hear of wars and rumors of wars,
but see to it that you are not alarmed.
Such things must happen,
but the end is still to come.
Nation will rise against nation,
and kingdom against kingdom.
There will be famines
and earthquakes in various places.
All these are the beginning of birth pains.”
“Then you will be handed over
to be persecuted and put to death,
and you will be hated
by all nations because of me.
At that time many will turn away
from the faith and will betray
and hate each other, and many false prophets
will appear and deceive many people.
Because of the increase of wickedness,
the love of most will grow cold,
but the one who stands firm to the end
will be saved."
"And this gospel of the kingdom
will be preached in the whole world
as a testimony to all nations,
and then the end will come.
So when you see standing in the holy place -
the abomination that causes desolation,’
spoken of through the prophet Daniel
let the reader understand -
then let those who are in Judea
flee to the mountains.
Let no one on the housetop
go down to take anything out of the house.
Let no one in the field
go back to get their cloak.
How dreadful it will be in those days
for pregnant women and nursing mothers!
Pray that your flight
will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath.
For then there will be great distress,
unequaled from the beginning of the world
until now, and never to be equaled again.”
“If those days had not been cut short,
no one would survive,
but for the sake of the elect
those days will be shortened.”
This explains why time has sped up!
“At that time if anyone says to you,
‘Look, here is the Messiah!’
or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it.
For false messiahs and false prophets
will appear and perform
great signs and wonders to deceive,
if possible, even the elect.”
That means the deception
will be so deep-rooted,
that even the elect could be uprooted.
“See, I have told you ahead of time.
“So if anyone tells you,
‘There he is, out in the wilderness,’
do not go out; or, ‘Here he is,
in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it.”
“For as lightning that comes
from the east is visible even in the west,
so will be the coming of the Son of Man.”
Every eye will see Him.
“Wherever there is a carcass,
there the vultures will gather.
Immediately after the distress of those days
the sun will be darkened,
and the moon will not give its light;
the stars will fall from the sky,
and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’
“Then will appear the sign
of the Son of Man in heaven.
And then all the peoples
of the earth will mourn
when they see the Son of Man
coming on the clouds of heaven,
with power and great glory.
And he will send his angels
with a loud trumpet call,
and they will gather his elect from the four winds,
from one end of the heavens to the other. “
“Now learn this lesson from the fig tree:
As soon as its twigs get tender
and its leaves come out,
you know that summer is near.
Even so, when you see
all these things, you know
that it is near, right at the door.”
This is so interesting,
because I wrote a poetic sermon
several days ago called, “Bethany,
The Home of Barren Fig Tree”
and said right now,
“the Branch is tender.”
“Truly I tell you,
this generation will certainly
not pass away
until ALL these things have happened.
Heaven and earth will pass away,
but my words will never pass away.”
If you have made it to the end
of this poem then the Lord has a Word for you -
Read Daniel with a heart
fully submitted to God.
Get rid of all preconceptions.
Just approach with a heart to honor God.
This will help you know what to look for.
