Though we walk through
this Valley of the Shadow of Death,
where evil forces do exist;
We shall not fear;
for the Lord our God comforts us.
Amazing people of faith have gone before us,
and they serve as great examples for us.
By faith Abel gave to God
a better offering than Cain did.
By faith he was considered as righteous,
when God spoke well of his sacrifice.
And did you know
by faith Abel still speaks to God,
even though he is physically dead.
This can be found in Hebrews 11:4
When reading Matthew Chapter One,
the Spirit of God revealed to me His faith pattern.
The ancestry of Jesus seems to have
a spiritual DNA,
that it is coded with the gene of faith.
And as some may know,
a gene will lie dormant unless it is expressed.
The gene of faith is expressed
when we hear and respond to the Spirit of God.
And when we respond and believe in what He says,
we are walking in right relationship with Him,
and become Jars of Clay who operate in faith.
science is simply the unfolding
of our understanding
of what God has created.
The DNA sequence of a gene
is always copied into mirrored RNA.
And the Children of God are expressions of Him.
Our God is faithful even when we are not.
The Seed of the woman HAS crushed
the head of the serpent.
And anyone who has wisdom
has understanding it this.
Brethren, let me exhort you -
The Day of the Lord is coming soon.
So don’t be a fool.
Decide for yourself who will serve.
The Lord says,
"Come and find Me while you still can.
There’s not much time.
I am unfolding My plan."
What do you see?
Less of Me -
and more hearts of humanity."
"The world is growing,
under the influence of worldly kings."
"You must remember
to put on your Armor!
The roaring lion is seeking to devour."
"There are evil forces
in the heavenly realms;
who roam the earth,
on the four winds.'
"Their sole desire
is to tempt the flesh of men
to become less of Me
and more like them."
Do you not see?
"The acts of the flesh are so obvious:
idolatry and witchcraft;
fits of rage, strife, envy and hatred."
"Rebellion and delusion
are running rampant across the land;
Can you feel the the division
that is being fanned?"
"Selfish ambition and lustfulness;
debauchery and drunkenness.
Have you not felt the rising up of social unrest?"
We must ready ourselves,
for the Day of the Lord is coming soon.
Take heed - those who live like this
will not inherit the kingdom of God.
And although tragedy is all around,
people continue to render their garments
instead of their hearts -
because the hearts of humans
are extremely proud.
The Lord says,
"As the anti-Christ spirit continues to rise,
the minds of men are squeezing Me out."
But that’s okay,
because I am wringing My remnant out,
for One drop of My blood
covers a multitude of sin."
We must remember -
It’s the blood that pulses
through the spiritual heart
that God hears when it cries out!
The Lord responds
to those who are humble in spirit
and pure in heart.
Do you remember what the people did
when Jesus rode on the back of a donkey,
across the Mount of Olives towards Jerusalem?
They spread clothes on the road
in front of him.
And people shouted,
"Hosanna in the Highest.
Blessed is the king who comes
in the name of the Lord!
Peace in heaven and glory to God.”
Yet, within days,
the loyalty of the people changed!
The same people
who were laying down their garments
and giving Him praise
yelled "Crucify" and He was betrayed!
Oh, how his heart must have broken!
His own people disowned Him.
We are called to love the Lord our God
with all our heart, soul and mind;
We are encouraged to endure all things,
and give thanksgiving and praise.
Did you know
that 700 years before the birth of Jesus,
the Prophet Isaiah foretold the Suffering Servant?
Who has believed our message?
To whom has the Lord
revealed his powerful arm?
My servant grew up in the Lord’s presence
like a tender green shoot,
like a root in dry ground.
There was nothing beautiful
or majestic about his appearance,
nothing to attract us to him.
He was despised and rejected -
a man of sorrows,
acquainted with deepest grief.
We turned our backs on him
and looked the other way.
He was despised, and we did not care."
Yet, it was our weaknesses he carried;
it was our sorrows
that weighed him down.
And we thought his troubles
were a punishment from God,
a punishment for his own sins!
But he was pierced for our rebellion,
crushed for our sins.
He was beaten so we could be whole.
He was whipped so we could be healed.
All of us, like sheep, have strayed away.
We have left God’s paths to follow our own.
Yet the Lord laid on him the sins of us all.
The Lord is asking,
“Do you trust? Do you believe?”
“Do you accept the free gift I sent to thee?”
“Is the blood of the Lamb of God
flowing through your veins?
Are you made ready to withstand
the angel of death?”
And there, on Judgment Day,
in the heavenly courtroom will stand
Satan, the Accuser of the brethren.
He will point his finger
at every single man,
who has not been born again
and He will say to the Father,
“This human is not your legitimate son.
He does not have Your royal Blood.”
And God will look and say,
“because you took the mark of the beast,
by loving the world instead of loving Me,
we will be permanently separated,
and you will be thrown into the Lake of Fire.”
In the Throne Room,
sitting at the right hand of God
our Wonderful Counselor
and Prince of Peace.
And those, who are made in the image of God,
those who have been resurrected,
through the blood of Christ and God's Holy Spirit,
Jesus will say, to the Father,
“Look, salvation has come!”
“I testify to the authenticity of Our blood.”
“This person is Your son.”
"A legitimate heir to the Kingdom of God."
So faithful believers everywhere,
let me exhort you to great endurance!
Those who children of God,
stand corrected and are faithful in spirit.
You are citizens of Heaven.
The Lord says,
"Now pay attention!
I am raising up my remnant."
"Open your spiritual ears, attune to Me."
"Open your eyes and come and see."
“Come and find Me.”
“Seek My face, and be redeemed.”
“Repent for your sin,
and return to Me.”
I am compelled by the Spirit
to give you this message.
Keep your eyes focused on Jerusalem.
For the Day of the Lord is coming soon.
