15 And remember, our Lord’s patience gives people time to be saved. This is what our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you with the wisdom God gave him-- 16 speaking of these things in all of his letters. Some of his comments are hard to understand, and those who are ignorant and unstable have twisted his letters to mean something quite different, just as they do with other parts of Scripture. And this will result in their destruction.
17 You already know these things, dear friends. So be on guard; then you will not be carried away by the errors of these wicked people and lose your own secure footing. 18 Rather, you must grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
All glory to him, both now and forever! Amen. [NLT]
A word from the Lord: No other god shall receive My glory, that is why you must go forward teaching, and preaching of My glory and power and dominion over the earth and all its inhabitants. I am a mighty sovereign God who will not tolerate this behavior of other gods before Me much longer. Judgment is coming as I spoke to you years ago. The time has arrived and it is here. Look for Me among the judgment and you will find Me in mercy and love, turning the hearts of the fathers back to their sons and the hearts of the sons to their fathers. This is a day foretold of thousands of years ago. This is a day of the Lord. Go forth and do My work with all your strength, with all your might, and turn to Me in your weakness and I will do great exploits.
My thoughts: Christmas day of 2003 the Lord gave me a vision. I went into my room to rest in the afternoon and I was half asleep and half awake when I saw a great wall of clouds moving across the land. From the ground all the way up to the sky as far to the north and to the south that I could see. I instantly knew it was judgment upon the land, and I was very afraid because I knew the land was not ready for judgment. The Lord then showed me a door post with blood on the side posts and across the top of the frame. He said “Get your house in order, judgment is coming.” I awoke frightened and I began to pray and as He always does He comforted me. I wrote the vision down and shared it with whoever would listen, but people lose interest quickly, and take lightly what is not in front of them. I raise my hand as a guilty party also. I know in my heart the Lord is tired of the world putting other gods before Him the only and true living God.
My prayer: Lord please help us to always know the times and the urgency of the hour. Let us not take lightly your warnings. Let us be that light to the world you have called all of us as Christians to be. Amen
