This morning the Sunday school lesson shared a video of Mark Blitz speaking on prophesy. He promotes studying end time events with the Biblical (Jewish) Calendar in mind rather than simply looking at dates on our ‘modern’ calendar. He referenced Genesis 1:14 which is generally translated and known as:
14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: (KJV). But Pastor Blitz pointed out that a more correct translation of the word “Moed” would be “appointed times” or “divine appointments”. Pastor Blitz noted that the God who holds (and controls) the vast universe in His hands seeks a personal relationship with you and me. That is an awesome concept!
I specifically chose this song because it acknowledges God’s awesome power shown in the universe and also acknowledges His touch in our individual lives.
Isaiah 46:8-10 (NIV)
8 “Remember this, keep it in mind,
take it to heart, you rebels.
9 Remember the former things, those of long ago;
I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is none like me.
10 I make known the end from the beginning,
from ancient times, what is still to come.
I say, ‘My purpose will stand,
and I will do all that I please.’
The warnings of the Harbinger and the four Blood Moons seems to me to fit with God’s word in Job. Who but HE knows how to control these events? Who but HE planned all things from before time? Who but HE knows the wicked and stubborn heart of man and who but HE provided redemption and grace?
If God is providing warnings what should our response be? We need to stay grounded in His Word so that we are not deceived by any, even those who share good information but may have an ulterior motive. We need to pray and seek to share the message of salvation with others in these critical days.
God, I pray for discernment and I pray for courage to share your message.
