It has been two weeks since I have posted any thoughts and encouragement. Moreover, I have been busy sewing face masks, reading, researching, and following reliable news sources on our rapidly changing “new normal” world we live in. We must realize that we are in an end-times battle.
I must tell you that if you listen to the mainstream media you are being fed propaganda to keep you in a state of panic. It is frustrating to see how quickly we as a whole swallow the Kool-Aid without doing our own research.
Likewise, I will admit that it can be difficult when the “gods” of the internet, airwaves, etc. do everything in their power to squelch the voices that dare to counter the “official” narrative. Yet even as my crusader spirit roared within me, I did not feel released by Yahweh to post anything.
What can I offer that almost everyone has heard over and over? Consequently, I am so sick and tired of COVID, COVID, COVID, that I told my friend I wanted to “slap the HE double hockey sticks out of someone”! Probably why God didn’t allow me to post anything! 😉
Can I be Real?
WOW! Can I just be real? Just between us? I have little patience for ignorance and those that do not use the wonderful brain that God gave us. Moreover, it appears that some of the rules and procedures to keep us “safe” are mostly power grabs to further Satan’s end times agenda because he knows his time is short. Remember we are in an end-times battle.
The crazy thing is I don’t watch the news and I am selective about where I visit to get information. However, you can’t get away from the effects of the “new norm”. We are held captive in our abodes. It reminds me of the boy who cried wolf. And most are swallowing it all hook, line, and sinker. If blood is not coming out of your eyes, ears, and nose, stop the nonsense.
Yes, the virus is real and people are dying. It’s sad, however, barring the Rapture, 100 percent of us will die eventually. The travesty is not being allowed to attend our loved ones through the process, which should be our choice, not the nanny state.
In my opinion and we all have one, it’s the fallout from the knee jerk reaction and the greedy power mongers that are creating the real problem related to this virus. The truth is out there but like the climate change agenda, the squeaky wheel gets the attention as the truth is labeled as a conspiracy. Notice what happens if you tell the truth in China, you “disappear”. At least in our country so far you just get banned from social media.
You May Have a Planned Agenda…
I can see Satan rubbing his hands together in delight as he anticipates his next move. He is thinking “Let’s see if the sheeple/lemmings are ready for the next devious sleight of hand in my gunny sack of tricks.”
Sadly, many are. When churches are not considered essential but liquor stores are…you might deduce we have a problem. When the minions in Washington D.C. try to remove a President from office by Russia Gate, Impeachment and then all of a sudden as the economy is booming we just happen to get a virus and the nation is shut down… you might realize that we are in an end-times battle and have a crisis that was planned to happen just at this opportune time.
We Need Each Other
I was so happy to be able to gather with my brothers and sisters in Christ and worship together this past Sunday. The ability to watch services on-line is a blessing when you can not get out, but there is nothing like gathering together to lift high the name of Jesus Christ who sustains us in our trials and tribulations.
We need each other, We were not created to be separate. We are in an end-times battle which is one of the reasons we are told not to forsake our assembling together.
24 Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. 25 And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near. – Hebrews 10:24-25 NLT
When I’m down and need encouragement you lift me up and speak the Word of God to me. When You are having a rough time I speak the Word of God to you to encourage and lift you up.
However, many are being held in bondage by fear. Even those who call themselves Christians are held in chains by the fear of dying. Where is your faith in the Word of God? Did God suddenly forget how to heal and protect us? Is God pacing the floor of heaven because He did not see this coming? Or did we just overlook all the passages of prophecy concerning the last days? Wait! What? God told us this would happen? Yes, He told us what to expect in the last days of our history as we know it.
Say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, and do not fear, for your God is coming to destroy your enemies. He is coming to save you.” – Isaiah 35:4 NLT
6 Such people will not be overcome by evil. Those who are righteous will be long remembered. 7 They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the Lord to care for them. 8 They are confident and fearless and can face their foes triumphantly. – Psalm 112:6-8 NLT
Don’t Invite Satan to Supper
Fear feeds Satan. Stop feeding Satan! He has no place at your table. Do you fear an eternity in the arms of Jesus? Do you fear to live as God intended in a world void of sin, sickness, death, and decay? Are you so tied up in this world that you can’t even consider what God has for those that follow Jesus? Don’t be deceived.
When we are so focused on the things of this world, we will be easily tricked and fall prey to anxiety, depression, and panic. This is Satan’s agenda. I understand those who do not have time for God feeling this way, but for followers of Christ to be fearful is a warning sign.
Moreover, in the past, when I was a young Christian, I dealt with panic attacks and depression. It is heartbreaking to hear and read of the many who are falling into the pit of depression and despair. I understand the pain and loneliness. But to be honest I was not aware of all the Truths in the Bible that could build my faith in my time of need. Today I am at a different place and can help point you to the Words of Truth that can build your faith level up. However, you must pick up the fork and feed yourself.
Suicide Is Increasing
Likewise, Suicide is increasing because of a lack of hope due to the fallout of this demonic attack called Covid-19. Even Christians are taking their lives. This should not be. However, Satan continues to divide and separate us so that we can become easy prey. Moreover, many are blinded because we do not spend time in the Word of God and recognize his tactics.
Christian, We Are in an End-Times Battle
- We must stand together against the schemes of the devil. He may be wearing the camouflage of a politician, a rich man, a scientist, teacher, or the poor man on the street corner. Or worse yet, the preacher in the pulpit.
- We must stand against the adversary by wearing the spiritual armor as outlined in Ephesians 6:10-20
- We must recognize whose we are (Jesus Christ) and who we are in Christ!
For those that are struggling with depression and anxiety, I want to recommend that you watch a 28-minute video from Pastor Jack Hibbs titled “COVID Time . . . The Real Fight We’re In!” It is well worth your time!
And if you need someone to reach out to, please email me at PassionatelyLovingJesus@gmail.com!
Be encouraged! The war has been won by Jesus Christ! The devil is defeated! We need to only to stand and remind him of his destiny! I have read the end of the book, have you?
Until we meet again, I am, Passionately Loving Jesus, The Anchor of my soul!
If you are not yet a follower of Christ, know that God loves you and is longing for a RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU! It is not a coincidence that you have come across this website and especially this article. God has an awesome plan for your life!
