UNDERSTANDING THESE TIMES
by Jimmie Warren
Beloved brethren as I am writing this to you I feel the urgent call to shout out “We are running out of time.”
Awhile back as I was praying a voice came to my mind, not an audible voice like a person talking but,a voice as clearly as though someone was speaking directly to my mind.
Now during this prayer time I was praying for others’ and their needs when I heard again “ running out of time,” It was unnerving to say the least.
At first I thought it was only my mind trying to put off time of prayer, as our minds do when we get tired ,or when we want to quit praying. Anyway as I kept asking for God to intervene in the life of a fellow brother in the faith, I heard the voice once again "Running out of time." At that moment I had to stop and think about what I was hearing and why?
I have written an article “ARE WE OUT OF TIME” and in it I explain more about this dream. Some of you may not have read this interesting article on our web site? If not then, please take the time to read it. I think you will find it most helpful in your hunt for end time issues.
I started asking myself “WHO IS RUNNING OUT OF TIME?” Is it me, Am I, or are we as people running out of time? It still bothers me and to this day in the back of my mind I can still hear the words “RUNNING OUT OF TIME.” See ( Luke 12:39-40 )
I talk to a lot of people through the INTERNET, some in the body of Christ, and other’s seeking to be a part of Christ. I have talked to some people who don’t care about churches or religion at all; yet all of them talk about how this world is going to Hell in a hand basket.
People are scared to death about what’s going on in Iraq, Iran, China, North Korea, and all this talk about dirty bombs. How could you not be worried with all that is going on around us today? Food cost going up up up and rents,and cars all going up but not our pay checks,where will it all end?
Read ( Luke 12:54-56 ) Jesus was talking of his coming at that time. But I believe he is warning us of this time and age also, right now ,if not soon! Some minister’s preach and believe that Matthew chapter 24 was only talking about the 70 AD destruction of the temple.
HOWEVER how do they explain verses 27-31 Jesus did not return in 70 AD, did he? Thus it is to come not finished yet!
We have no record of the sun turning dark or the moon turning blood red as the signs of his coming is told to us in the end time. If even one of these events would have happened the Astronomy of that time would have recorded the event so, we are to assume that this is talking about another time, our time.
This means a new temple must be standing in the end time, well my sisters and brothers of the faith, I have good news for you! A new temple is being readied right now in Israel. Yes! Right now they are getting ready to put it together on the Holy site.
Be on guard, get ready-please Read ( Luke 12:47-48 ) & Revelation Chapter 17,are you the servant in verse 47?
"The servant who knows what his master wants him to do, but does not get himself ready and do what his master wants, will be punished with a heavy whipping.”
To all of you my fellow brethren I say," we need to get busy, telling everyone we can, that we are running out of time. We are coming to the day of our Lord Jesus Christ’s return." Are you doing your jobs? Are you ready to meet God and tell him what a good job you have tried to do for him by getting out the message that the time of God's kingdom is at hand?
Do not be like the servants in Luke 12:45 don’t think “Yeah, I”ve heard all this before, I even heard my grandmother talk about the return of the Lord so what? "Woe unto the men who say the Lord delays his return," remember that one"?
Well I am writing this to show you that the time of the end or as I prefer to say the time of a new beginning is upon us. (Matthew 24: 42 ) We do not have long!
Do you know that in Israel about 34 months ago or so, that the Sanhedrin (which is the religious court of the Jews) was reborn and that all their priests have their Holy garments made and have been taught their duties for the temple to preform all the duties of the mosaic laws of old? These priests of the court have given their OK for a new temple to be pre-built. The four corner stones have been made according to rules set up by their old ways and have been ready to be moved to the temple mount anytime . KEEP YOUR EYES ON Jerusalem!
Jesus told his disciples to watch for the signs of his return Amen
(Revelation 11:1-2 ) This is talking about the end time Temple, it will be a fact one day soon! ARE YOU READY for what is about to happen, well are you? ( Matthew 24:44-51 )
You see all the other times that people talked about the end coming ,the Jews had not come back home to their promised land od Israel. There was no land of Israel until 1948.The nation of Israel was born and now they are planing to rebuild their Holy Temple and sacrifice to their God to ask for his protection on their nation. They are looking for their messiah Y'shua to save them and for him to return to his people.
Well HE is on his way back and they will know him when they see the nail prints in his hands and feet. We already know who Y'shua is ,He is Jesus Christ Amen and Amen!
As soon as the Jews build their Temple, then we are in the count down to ARMAGEDDON, You know, the end time war just before the Jew’s messiah, our Lord Jesus Christ, returns! Hallelujah.
You See, if you know it or not, we are running out of time. Just look around you, you can see it, if you will only open your eyes and minds. Read (Matthew 24:14), then read Daniel chapter 11 then Revelation chapters 11&17 also read (Matthew 24:14) with (Luke 21:7-19).These are the end times we are living in today!
I know this is a lot of reading to do but, your life and all those you love may depend on you knowing this. Read more (Luke 21:20). Jesus was speaking of the 70 AD time here but ,also about the end time ,our time verses 25-28 How close do you think we are right now?
My brothers and sisters we must get out and do something to spread the news about Jesus and his soon appearance on this planet of ours. (Romans 10:11-13)
Everyone can be saved!
(Romans 10:14-15) this is what we all need to share with everyone who will listen, before it is too late.
Look at (Romans 12:1-2) Life in God’s Service, are you there yet? While reading this chapter of Romans, starting in verse 4& 5 replace the word parts with the word churches, now read verses 6 - 21.
This is talking about all of us, so don’t play around anymore, because we are out of time.
READ your newspapers and watch the news on the INTERNET, pay very close attention to what is happening in the nation of Israel. Be praying all the time, not just at bed time or at church but, all the time. Our sisters and brothers of the world need to know what time it is and we have very little of it to tell them.
Ask yourself about things like:
1) NATIONAL I.D. CARDS /CHIPS in our driver Licenses
2) NEW WORLD ORDER this is being pushed by both parties!!!
3) Jerusalem becoming a world capital city.
4) WORLD WAR 3 ALREADY STARTED
5) 1/3 of all mankind killed BY war, then 1/3 more by Famine , (THAT’S 4 BILLION PEOPLE ON THIS PLANET, FOLKS! )
Some will be in the USA
Any of this sound familiar at all? If not, you need to pay more attention of what is going on around you. It is time to quit playing religion don’t you think?Pick up your own Bibles and read it yourself,it is happening all around you,get ready for the return of the Lord.
Going to church every Sabbath (Saturday or Sunday) makes no difference if you are just playing church.
Are you in church because you want to be with our Father God and his son Jesus Christ? or are you in church because you want to be apart of God’s everlasting kingdom?
Maybe you are just going to church because it’s a tradition in your family?
Maybe you’re in church because you did something wrong or are doing something wrong now I don’t know but, you are running out of time my friends, so you better ask yourself some of these questions while you can.
How about this one," you are going to church for the family, or your mate says you will go or I’ll kill you?" What I am getting at is, where are your heart and mind during church services?
Are you trying to get closer to God to serve him or are you there just in church for show?
I am telling you now ,you should be in church or starting a church to spread the Good News of the coming of the Lord. We are out of time to just go to church to please anyone except Jesus the only one who counts. If you are in church for any other reason you are wasting Time, WAKE UP!
It is time for all of us to quit playing religion don’t you think?
At any time a Terrorist will set off a dirty bomb or spread germ warfare here in the US and the world as we know it will be in anarchy.
Just think what will happen when one or two Nukes goes off here in America? Remember what the people did during the hurricanes ? Shootings, robberies, Vandalizing, killing, roving gangs’ all this was happening only a short time ago, Remember?
Now think about millions dead and dying in the streets of a major US city.
What are people going to do?
What are you going to do?
Are you and your family ready?
Where are you going to be when this happens?
(Notice I did not’t say if this happens, I said WHEN)
Believe it or not, we are in the in time talked about in Matthew and Luke and ,Daniel and Revelations.
We are almost out of time to help save our fellow man, are you working hard for the Lord? Are you doing your job?
OR are you just sitting on the side lines figuring someone else can tell them about this?
If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, it is your duty to spread the word of Jesus to the world. Even if it is only in prayer every day as long as you are doing something.
If you are one of those Christians sitting on the side lines waiting to be taken to a place of safety ask yourselves, " am I really ready for the Lord’s RETURN?"
Is Jesus coming back for you or to judge you? Are you sure you are close enough to God to be protected from all that is coming soon?
ARE YOU PRAYING DAILY TO ESCAPE THESE THINGS? (Luke 21:36)
Please take a long moment here and ask yourself honestly “Am I ready, Am I doing all I can do to serve the Lord?”
How to get prepared for these times:
1) PRAYER ---------Are you praying every day?
2) Serving ----------Are you serving others’?
3) Sharing-----------Are you talking to all, who might hear the word of the Lord?
4) Giving-------------Give your time helping anyone in need.
5) Listening------Are you willing to listen to others’ when they tell you about the end time?
6) Seeking----- Are you truly seeking God’s kingdom every day, putting it first in your life?
7) Understanding---------Do you read Gods Holy word (the Bible) every day and most importantly do you understand what it is saying to you?
Forget all the religious garble others have told you, read it for your own peace of mind. Wisdom comes from God, God gives you faith and faith gives understanding ,which in turn ,gives you wisdom with the power of the Holy Ghost.
Here is a thought! draw a line on a piece of paper with zero at the beginning of the line and end with 85
now put an X where your age is right now? HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU HAVE LEFT?
Short is’t it, the day you die will be your day of the Lord—
Are you ready?
Do you know the Lord Jesus Yeshua Messiah?
Just Look back 20 years. remember how fast it went?
What about the next 10-20 years ?
Baring any accident, do you see the short time you have left??
Let us pray “Heavenly Father we come before you in all your glory and understanding and ask by your mercy that you would walk with us in mind and spirit. Father God you know our hearts and minds and that there is no deceiving you. Open our minds and soul and abide within us in our time of need. Father God you made us, remember how weak we really are. Hold our hands and keep us on the right track as we run this race called life. Let us through your son Jesus to be like him that we too may be in your kingdom forever and ever Amen”
Now that you have prayed I employ you to share this message " Jesus Christ is coming very soon and we all need to be ready. This way when time is up ,we will all be ready to start our new life in God’s everlasting kingdom."
Thank you for reading this message and may our Lord Jesus / Y'shua Messiah, be with you in all the time you have left.
Amen and Amen
If this message helped you and you want to help, become a partner in reaching those who have not received Jesus / Y'shua Messiah. If you feel this article has impacted your life and you want to make a donation to help others, please do so. Any amount, large or small, will be greatly appreciated.
It is during this time of year when most churches need your help so here is reading to help make up your minds:
Love Offerings or Freely Giving
These show your generosity to God and His churches,freely giving shows the responsibility of offering a portion of one's financial resources to the work of the church. Donations fund the God-given mission of the church to preach the gospel and feed the flock.
Such giving reflects the believer's worship, faith, obedience, and love for God, who is the Source of salvation and Giver of all good things. Giving from the heart is what God wants.
(1 Corinthians 9:1-14; 2 Corinthians 9:6-11; 1 Peter 4: 10; Genesis 4:3)
THANK YOU AND MAY THE LORD OUR GOD BLESS EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU!
