Patient Endurance & Faithfulness

We are living in the last days and headed towards the “Last Hurrah!” and the Climax of the Ages. If you have NO clue as to what I’m talking about you can read the Chapters of Daniel 7 and Revelation 13-14 in the Bible.
I see my own humanity and frailty already because of what I have gone thru the last 2 years. I have suffered bodily for 23 years due to an illness of which I won’t get into here, but these past 2 years have been even WORSE and I have been tempted to just throw in the towel and give up! And God only knows how many times I’ve complained to Him about it all! (and some of it I’m just saddened by and ashamed of really, but I know that He CAN handle it and that I would’ve been DEAD a long time ago if it were NOT for Him!)

I now realize that the Beast is ALREADY busy upon this earth for there are a lot of folks willing to wag their boastful tongues into the camera for us all to see on our nightly News Hour. They are full of pride and hatred and deception, so it is plainly evident that the Beast is already here doing his thing and stirring up trouble, but the furnace is being slowly turned up and made ready for all those who are just down right evil even though they don’t know they are. (I’m in prayer over this for it just saddens me!)
It occurred to me last night that IF I had known ahead of time all that I would have to go thru on earth I would’ve been just like Jonah saying, “Oh no, I DON’T wish to go there, and I’ll just stay up here instead, for there is too much evil going on down there!”
We are entering into a time whereby we shall all need “Patient Endurance” and “Faithfulness” – see Revelation 13:17&10, so if we are already desiring to give up we have still more garbage to go thru, and who can endure or be faithful unless God Himself empowers us to be so!
And please don’t hide your head in the sand for it shall NOT do you any good or help you in the end, but be in prayer asking to receive from God what you need NOW.
For each of us knows what our own weaknesses are (for the devil is good at pointing them all out too) and so we need help from God to address those areas now instead of later.

And if we wait until later it shall be TOO LATE! Like the 10 Virgins-there were 5 who were READY and 5 who were NOT, so don’t allow yourself to be one of them for they lost out in the end!
Ask God to make you one of those wise virgins who are in sync with Him, for it will be God who will do that for us and NOT ourselves, because “Unless the Lord builds the house the laborers labor in VAIN!” Psalm 127:1,
See also some encouragement here Colossians 1:9-13, Hebrews 13:6-9 and by far there’s much more if you would be willing to humble yourself and crack open your Bible and read it.

And I’m sorry that I don’t have any funny or entertaining message for you today but one of warnings instead, because I’m NOT usually a serious person either! I just see the writing is now “on the wall” and I am just speaking out about it here.
