The earth is being tossed to and fro as our transgressions are heavy upon it just as the prophet Isaiah declared. This year has been infused with moments of uncertainty as economic and political twists and turns continue to force the entire globe to navigate uncharted waters—waters which appear to be troubled with blatant lies, deception and an antichrist agenda in full swing.
In the last few years everything has seemed to have rapidly shifted in this nation and across globe. There is no doubt that the labor pains of the return of Jesus Christ is upon us and the enemy knows that his time is short.
The mission statement of hell in the last days certainly includes unleashing the spirit of deception that is wrapped in a spirit of fear. This two fold weaponry of the enemy is no respecter of persons and will seek to assault anyone who is willing to give place to the devil. I am reminded of the gospels revealing the enemy’s plan of deception and fear as an end-time sign that Jesus would crack the clouds and return for His people.
Many are under the assumption that faith is some type of name it and claim it, blab it and grab it, emotional expression of words filled with hype. God desires that we become a people in the earth who are fully persuaded that He desires to be the origin of our faith, not our emotions. The God of heaven will infuse your life with nothing short of His faith if you will allow Him to.
We are being thrusted into the unknowns of 2022 like a boat being tossed into the middle of the seas of life. Regardless of your personal, political or spiritual beliefs, most can agree that there have been consistent, spiritual stormy days for quite some time now and more stormy days ahead of us as we press into the new year.
In the last few years it is like the earth has tossed and turned like a drunk man as many unexpected things have sought to disrupt all forms of normalcy in people’s lives. Though there has always been prayer and fasting, it appears that due to the rapid release of things in the earth, more people have charged into 2022 with this spiritual discipline. Every year our church calls for 21 days of prayer and fasting and though we always have a great response because it has been cultivated, this year almost every person in our church is fasting and praying for souls, divine health and supernatural breakthrough!
Every time your heart beats, somebody dies on this earth and slips into eternity. Your heart beats over 100,000 times per day. The spirit and soul of a person who dies separate from their expired human body. The body is taken to the mortuary and their name is written in the obituaries but that does not mean their name was written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
This Christmas season will involve such traditions as decorating homes with lights, filling stockings, decorating trees, exchanging gifts and enjoying great food with family at the dinner table as people celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As our Christmas traditions unfold, we must remember in the midst of all the festivities that the Word of God is alive. The Christmas story is not just a launchpad for family fun and traditions but is the living Word, revealing end-time prophetic signs for the last days. Allow me to use the living Word of God to bring the Christmas story to life this Christmas season as we rapidly approach the end of days.
There is not a doubt in my mind that the earth has been thrusted into a rapid accelerated end-time signs of the times. The Antichrist spirit is unleashing an agenda that is preparing the earth for the revealing of the Antichrist himself through the forcing of governmental mandates.
May there be a resurgence of these famous words from Thomas Jefferson in this generation: “God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are a gift of God?” As you read these words, may they challenge your heart to consider that the foundation of freedom rests in respecting human life first. The Declaration of Independence makes it clear, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
