IN OUR TIME. Pro 4:7 “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.” Mat 24:12 “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” Our Messiah also spoke of this time to 2Tim. 3:1 “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!” Eph.4:27 “Nor give place to the devil.” 1Pe. 5:8 “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, like a roaring lion, is walking about, seeking whom he may devour:” When a Nation and its people rebels against YHVH, and turns away from His all knowing and loving guidance, the door to its prosperity becomes closed, and its security gates are left unguarded. Thus Satan and his multitude of destroyers become free to enter in, and reek havoc upon the land. We have an example of this in the two nations of Haiti, and the Dominican Republic, which are neighbors on the same island; yet the one having Messianic roots prospers and lives relatively at peace, while the other a practitioner of sorcery, knows little or no peace or prosperity. When the Apostles Shaּul and Kefa above warned of the nature and characteristics of Satan, they were speaking both from experience, as well as with the foreknowledge taken from the Tanakh. Iyov (job) 1:14-19. Jer.4:7 “The lion has come up from his thicket, And the destroyer of nations is on his way. He has gone forth from his place To make your land desolate. Your cities will be laid waste, Without inhabitant.” This is a preview of America’s future if we do not repent, and return faithfully to YHVH for His guidance and protection. Now there are some which will correctly argue, that no matter what we do, that which YHVH prophets have prophesied for the last days will come to past as predicted. And to this I fully agree; however unless the scriptures reveal a specific date or time-line for a prophesy to become fulfilled, it is flexible, and dependant on circumstances. This is where we come in; as such we and/or our actions are what triggers the advent that brings the prophecy to its climax; so thus we also have it within our ability to delay its appearing. Deu.28:1- gives us an example of mankind’s influence upon the last days prophesies and its time-line. 2Pe 3:9 “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” Deu 4:30 “When you are in distress, and all these things come upon you in the latter days, when you turn to the LORD your God and obey His voice 31 for the LORD your God is a merciful God, He will not forsake you nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them.” Let those of us which are blessed in Ha’Adonai Yeshyua Mashiach, and that live by faith, take hold of His enduring promises which will preserve us, and diligently teach them to our neighbors and loved ones. That we might deny Satan any further territory, and take back that which has been lost. As most of us can clearly see, we are at the cross roads of decision, may we choose to make the right decision. Amen! Yeshua friend. Joh.15:15. Shalom.
