Today, the failed false prophet writes to his members who obviously are failures in all aspects of their life. He starts his letter off by admonishing his members. No "thank-you's" for supporting him while still in prison, no "thank-you's" for supporting his second witness wife. Nothing like that. He lays into the membership for being slackards
That post was given as an admonishment to God’s Church to remember the importance of being spiritually on guard and ready. It was also given to encourage a greater measure of soberness about the reality that horrific end-time events can truly happen at any moment. Capturing and holding onto such an awareness is not easily accomplished, but it is necessary.
Having such purpose of focus along with being constant in belief can only be accomplished with God’s spirit. This becomes all that much more urgent upon us when you add to this that there is an evil spirit world that is highly agitated and its objective is to fully distract you from having such a spiritual focus. Anything that can be used to turn your focus inward on self is now being intensified.
Satan has declared war and it rages all around us:
Their time is growing very short and they know it. You need to “see” this reality as a war in progress in the midst of a great battlefield. It must be treated in such a manner, as the greatest spiritual battle in which you will ever be engaged in life.
We are rapidly approaching the observance of Passover and the Days of Unleavened Bread. It is from this season that the final count to the Pentecost that ushers in the Passover as King of kings will occur. Let’s consider some of those verses relating to our Passover who first came as a Lamb and is soon coming as a Lion. God’s execution of judgment upon Israel and the world has much to do with their rejection of His Son.
This is the account of the death of the Son of God. “Now from the sixth hour (noon) there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour (3 pm). At about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice saying, ‘Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?’ That is to say, ‘My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?’” (Mat. 27:45-46). “Jesus, when he had cried out again in a loud voice, yielded up the spirit. Then behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from the top to the bottom, and the earth shook and rocks shattered” (Mat. 27:50-51).
From noon until 3 pm on that Passover day, Jesus Christ entered the final stage of his agonizing torture that was finally brought to a close after a soldier had pierced his side with a spear (Jn. 19:34) and out came water and blood, and then he died. Christ’s Father marked that period by darkness over all the land as His only Son was dying a cruel and hideously unjust death. The world has always been cruel to those whom God has sent.
Would it not be most just indeed for the Day of the Eternal, also called the Day of God’s Vengeance, to also include God’s response to the world following the “time” of His Son’s death?
In this Day of the Eternal, 3 pm will arrive on April 4th, however the accounts of Christ’s death gives a time that is about or near 3 pm. It could be a little while before or after that exact time. In all this, God’s Church continues to “watch” (physically and spiritually) with eager anticipation as we look to God to begin executing His righteous judgment upon the world so that the pride and evil in this world can be brought down and humility of spirit raised up.
