Christmas 2014:

Gifts, Glitter, Family, Food, Friends and the Focus?

"Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass." -Zech 9:9 (KJV)

We are almost there – Christmas 2014 is upon us even this next week. Most folks have been racing around here and there spending money buying gifts for family and friends. Others have been making preparations for the traditional family get together and all the vittles needed for a nice Christmas dinner. During this time of year it seems all the stops are removed and a whole flurry of activity takes place far and wide, throughout the world. For many this time is sad and lonely especially if you have lost a loved one, for others it's a time they wish would go faster so as to get back to normal everyday living. At any rate, Christmas represents to many love, joy, peace and let's not forget Christmas trees with lots of lights and glitter, and much food with family and friends. It's a time of great fellowship and lots of sharing. And let's not forget the gifts, big or small, bountiful or meager, it's a very memorable time of the year.

"Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us." -Matt 1:23 (KJV)

So amidst the hustle and bustle of the season have you ever stopped for a moment to ponder on what this really means … to you? Now I know I could get into the legitimacy of Christmas from a Biblical point of view or the roots of Christmas from a historical perspective but, right now, at this time, well, we'll leave for another post down the road. I wanted to dwell for a few minutes on what does this time of year actually mean to you, personally, in your heart and mind. For a moment put the gifts, glitter, food, family and friends on hold and sit down wherever you are and really think, "What does Christmas really mean to me?". Spend some very reflective quiet time contemplating this very important question.

Does it mean anything deep down inside? Is your soul moved with the thought that Christ came from His throne in heaven to be born of a virgin, live a regular human life (without sin) and then be so derided, so scorned, scoffed and mocked by many including the 'religious' leaders and then finally beaten severely, nailed to a cross and there died a terrible, agonizing death? Does this move you at all? Are the juices of your soul, the emotions of your heart, what makes up you who you are, are they stirred? Where is your focus today? Is the birth of our Savior at the forefront of your mind and the how and why of His arrival firmly ingrained in your being? If not, why not?

"Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift." -2 Cor 9:15 (KJV)

Christmas has become so disjointed and disfigured, so twisted and skewed that for most, even Christians, the real meaning of who Jesus Christ is and why He came to be born in such a humble manner, is more than often overlooked or forgotten or excluded from our focus. Why is this? Well, IMHO, it's the ways of a greedy world that has cast off the real meaning of Christ's birth, His life here on earth and finally His death. All these should have such an impact on our lives that we think about them daily and tell others as often as we can. The best gift to be given to any human being is the gift of Christ – His love, grace and mercy; and this gift is free! And there is a tremendous bonus gift – for those that accept Him, believe in Him and follow His word, eternal life to live with Him in His home forever. Wow! That is an awesome thought and an awesome gift!  So with these things in mind and during the festivities this year please take a moment to consider what Christ's birth means to you and where you are at in your relationship with Him.

"Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost." -Romans 15:13 (KJV)

 

May God's blessings be upon you this Christmas season.

Modern Warfare Gets a Nasty New Face – Cyberwarfare!

Bible Prophecy Commentary – Wars and Rumors of Wars:

In years and wars gone by warfare began with rocks and spears, then bullets and bombs and now in today's high-paced techno-world, cyberwarfare takes center stage. What will this bring to the modern world, to nations that have the knowledge and technology but perhaps not the big militaries? Unknown, but nevertheless could be quite lethal and quite nasty.

We know the Red horse rider (Rev 6:3-4) brings wars and the removal of peace from the world with the sword but also a 'great sword'. Can this possibly mean a nuclear weapon/s or perhaps massive cyberwarfare? At this point it is, IMO, too early to tell but as each day passes more occurs in the world and more is revealed in Bible Prophecy. Stay tuned folks, more is coming according to God's word spelled out in the pages of scripture.

RED HORSE – Second Seal – WARS and REMOVAL of PEACE, GREAT SWORD!!

" And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword." -Rev 6: 3-4 (KJV)

Bible Prophecy Commentary – Global Money Meltdown Coming Soon?

In the wake of the next global financial crash, which we assume is on the horizon, your money could vanish like the wind! If the global community learned anything from the 2001 and 2008 financial crashes it should have been clear that money is fluid and dynamic meaning it could flee from you like the wind on a stormy day. This is not rocket science – this is reality.

If you think that all is well and that this problem too will pass, you are hiding under the covers in a soft comfortable warm bed. Massive financial problems and troubles are coming as prophesied with the Black horse and rider in Rev 6:5-6. They will bring judgment based on man’s greed, pride and lust that will impact people’s lives like never before. Again, we saw warnings of this in the 2001 and 2008 crashes (ummm – exactly seven years apart to the day and hour) but will the world heed the warnings? I think not!

Pay attention folks! 2014-2015 is a Shemitah year (Deut 15:1-2; Lev 25:3-6) and by all evidence and previous events, we may see a huge, massive and terrible financial crash on or before Sept 13, 2015. Are you ready? What do you put your trust in – the world’s systems or God’s love, mercy, grace and the free gift of salvation? The judgments are coming as sure as the air we breath and due to man’s sin and unrepentant hearts we will deserve what we get. Have you confessed your sin, repented and sought the Lord God Almighty and His Son Jesus Christ today? No…? Why not?

“They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.” -Jer 7:19 (KJV)

THIRD SEAL, BLACK HORSE: ECONOMIC WOES – FOOD PRICES!

“And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.” -Rev 6:5-6 (KJV)
