As time is passing by here on this cold, rainy day in the foothills…I wonder…is it really going to end? Have I done all that I needed to do in this life? Are the prophecies of my ancestors coming to fruition? Well I have to say that I really can’t confirm that the end is really knocking on our door. I think about this year, the year 2012, and reflect on all of events and much of what has happened in our world has saddened me. I hope and pray that I have helped all the people who I was supposed to help. Even though the world is crumbling around me everyday, I have grown closer to God more than I have ever experienced in my whole entire life. And even though the prophecies of my ancestors are to be much admired, especially since they have caused everyone to question “Is it the end???”, I have to say that their predictions of when the world is going to end are much like the rest of us…UNKNOWN. I do want to defend my ancestors by saying that it was always taught through the generations that this was the beginning to something new and that the world as we see it now will be no longer. The year 2012, according to the Mayans, was a year of complete spiritual fulfillment and a spiritual awakening. This has proven to be true in my own life and to the closest people in my circle. My personal view is that it is the beginning to the end and I truly believe that. We tend to be planners and want to know what will happen every day, every minute, every hour. We are all waiting in anticipation to know what will happen at exactly 11:11 a.m. in the morning. I have even heard questions about which time zone. I would assume whatever time it will be in Honduras since that is where Copan is! I am definitely making it a light conversation because honestly, if our hearts are right with Jesus Christ, we have nothing to fear….
With all of this being said, the only prophecies that we must even rely on or even believe in are the Bible Prophecies. The word of God has been fulfilled up until these last days. The Lord said in Matthew 24:31 that he will send his angels with the loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other. When Jesus returns, then we will know that it is the end. And until that day comes, we must watch all the signs and look at all that is unfolding before our eyes. We still have to be on guard as every day the world gets worse. Ephesians 6:12 says that our struggle is not against the flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. The Lord is equipping his people at this time for what is coming our way. The body of Christ is about to rise out of this illusion that we are in and see what we are really up against. The Lord has revealed to me this year alone that he is preparing me, training me, cultivating me, guiding me in the Holy Word for what is about to come. We will be “shaken” and our spirits will be tested but we will not be moved because the Holy Spirit is in us. Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be ordained of God! Romans 13:1. Remember that God has the last word and there is hope in his plan for his people. If you haven’t accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, the time is now to accept him into your heart. Accept his gift of eternal life for the new world that is to come. And it is coming! I don’t know when but it is coming. It doesn’t matter where you have been, where you came from, what your life has been like….he wants you to come just as you are. I have lived a broken life for many years, I have had many trials and tribulations in my life, if he can change my life-he can definitely change yours. All it takes is this one simple prayer for your salvation:
Jesus, I know that I have sinned. I know that I am a sinner and that I am not perfect. Please forgive me for all that I have done. I want to know who are you and I ask you to come into my heart and make me a new person. Thank you for loving me and for dieing for me. Amen.
If you prayed that simple prayer, you have been saved and have eternal life! I encourage you to find a church near you so that you can hear the words of Jesus. There is nothing like living for him!
God Bless You and Happy 12/21/12! May everyone embrace what is to come, you are the light of the world!
