Suggested listening while reading. "The Final Countdown" by Europe.
The signs of the times make it quite clear that we are living in the last days. Most Christians are lukewarm and sleep cozily with the world, to the great satisfaction of our leaders. As in Roman days, we are kept entertained and fed, and are, for the most part, are inattentive to the deceptions that are hurled our way. It is difficult, indeed, to realize that one needs to take the 'red pill' and pull away from the matrix. The only way to deepen one's walk with God is to turn off the television and other technological distractions and listen to God's voice. His voice comes to us through the bible. Although no one can really understand God 100%, one will never learn of God's character if one only listens to the 'flesh' talk about God and His holy Word. Read for yourself. Think for yourself. If you do not understand a scripture, ask for the Holy Spirit's help in understanding. Spend time in prayer, be still and know He is God. Repent, that is, turn away from your sins and ask for forgiveness. There's not much talk about atoning for sins, but since I was forgiven, I wish to atone, to do good works for my Lord, for faith without works is dead, sayeth the Lord. Now is the time to wash one's robe and make it white. Revelations 22:14 "Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city."
Amen. Blessed be the Lord.
