A Final Dividing Line is Being Drawn
First published March 2022.
“Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life,” 1 Timothy 6:19.
It seems unbelievable that we are ending and beginning another year. Where has the time gone?
Time marches on and with each tick of the clock we draw one second closer to The Coming of Jesus Christ. The battle rages, but we will be victorious if we continue trusting in Christ.
Many changes have taken place this year — both in America and throughout the world. This country has changed more in the past 2 years, then the previous 243 years of its history.
Where life used to be relatively stable as to what to expect, this is no longer the case. Each day brings a new change — a new rule — a new requirement.
We have warned for years that hard times were coming, and we’re seeing them. Yet, even more trying days are ahead.
It is important that we prepare ourselves to stand. Many think that others need to prepare themselves, while neglecting to consider they are in need of preparation as well.
What I’m referring to here is spiritual preparation.
The days ahead are going to be very dark. We’ve already seen great darkness descend upon the land, and even greater is looming. The Beast system is rising before our eyes.
It is so important we keep the peace of God in our lives. His Peace, nothing can defeat.
It is our Faith that causes us to be overcomers. Many obstacles get in our way. There is a constant battle and warfare going on.
Yet, in the midst of seeming defeat, Victory is guaranteed because of The Blood of Jesus Christ Our Lord! Hold on, people of God. Keep the Faith!
Sometimes it is so hard, but we must maintain the course. We must keep enduring. A great Crown awaits at the end.
Though we long for our battle to be over now, we must wait until The Captain of Our Salvation says it is time.
When He says it is time, our journey — our battle — our struggle — will be complete — and then, we within ourselves, will be complete.
We will be complete because we are complete in Jesus Christ. He supplies our every need and His promises are True.
They NEVER fail. He NEVER fails! Rest in His love. Rest in His Mercy. Rest in His Guidance. Rest in His Provision. Rest in Him, as your All in All. Rest in His Hand.
He will never leave you. He will never forsake you. He will always lead you to fountains of Living Waters.
There will be no dry land in His Presence, for in His Presence is fullness of joy! Wellsprings of Life will arise in your life, as you seek and rest in His Loving Arms.
The hour of temptation is coming, but rest in the Arms of The Living God.
Rest in Him, He will see you through. Put your trust in Him. He will walk by your side, leading you through the valleys and the shadow of death.
Though you walk through those valleys, He will take you by the hand and lead you to fountains of Living Waters.
Those waters will never run dry. They will never run out. There is a never ending supply of His Love, Power, Strength, and Mercy. Only run to Him and be strengthened by His never changing Hand.
He is The One who will lead us in the days ahead.
He is the One who will shield us from a world that is in total denial of His Power.
He is the One who will keep and maintain us in the midst of a dry and thirsty land.
There is a great desert on the horizon. Dry and arid sands are on the landscape for the days ahead, but in the midst of this barren wasteland, awaits a Saviour, with outstretched Hands to His People.
The Savior would say, Rest in Him! Rest from your weariness. Rest from your struggle and the long journey. Rest in Him!
Do not look to the left, do not look to the right, look only to Jesus Christ, The Author and Finisher of your faith.
He it is, is the One Who will sustain you. He will keep you and hold you and shield you in the midst of this troubled world.
Yea, very great days of trouble, trial, and deprivation are coming, sayeth The LORD, but He will keep His People.
He will keep His sheep. He will lead them to pastures of clear and clean and Living Water, where there is a never-ending spring that will never run dry.
It will always be available to His People. His People will seek Him in the midst of trouble and His People will be overjoyed when the Presence of The LORD extinguishes the darts and wiles of the enemy.
Do not think that the enemy is not real, because he is. He is an adversary and foe, and seeks to destroy every True Child of God.
But, The Hand of The LORD will not allow this to happen to His People. He will be right there, by our side — encouraging us, keeping us, helping us, leading us.
“Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest“ John 4:35.
As we approach these last and evil days, there will be a great time of awakening — Harvest in the midst of Judgment.
As the days grow darker, so the Mercy and Light of Jesus Christ will grow stronger. Where sin abounds, grace doth much more abound.
Sometimes we may feel consumed seeing all the desolation transpiring, but a Great Light is arising in the midst of the darkness.
That Light is Jesus Christ and He will not fail to lead His people and give them Victory,
“Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light” Ephesians 5:14.
“One thousand shall flee at the rebuke of one; at the rebuke of five shall ye flee: till ye be left as a beacon upon the top of a mountain, and as an ensign on an hill……..
……..Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that The LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound” Isaiah 30:17,26.
The LORD will take care of us. He will lead His people. He will lead us through these perilous days that are upon us.
It is so very important that we keep our trust in Him. We must keep on our guard — fighting the good fight of faith.
Though you may have been unscathed from great trials in the past, in the coming days the temptations will be great.
Endurance is very important. Lifting up your head in difficult times is paramount. All will be tried greatly in the days ahead, so keep Christ’s Light within you,
“Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning; And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately,” Luke 12:35-36.
In the midst of Judgment, a great Harvest will come about.
Souls will come into The Kingdom of God in a final outreach to mankind.
I believe this is the last call that is coming before Jesus Christ comes. Great tribulation will envelop the world, but God’s people will be “…… preserved, blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Thessalonians 5:23).
His people will be safe in His Arms,
“Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn” Luke 13:30.
It is very important that we truly be His people. You may think, “Of course I’m one of His — of course, I’m a Christian.”
“Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God,” Hebrews 3:12.
“Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall,” 1 Corinthians 10:12.
The Word of God warns us to remain vigilant.
We must trust fully in Christ, never taking our salvation for granted, and The LORD will keep and sustain us in everything.
Yet, as He was often unpleased with ancient Israel, let Him not be displeased with us today. He desires that His people seek Him, but His People have not sought Him days on end,
“O generation, see ye the word of The LORD. Have I been a wilderness unto Israel? a land of darkness? wherefore say my people, We are lords; we will come no more unto thee? Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet my people have forgotten me days without number,” Jeremiah 2:31-32.
Do not be so confident that you think you can never fall,
“Yea, thou shalt go forth from him, and thine hands upon thine head: for The LORD hath rejected thy confidences, and thou shalt not prosper in them,” Jeremiah 2:37.
People are choosing what they feel are the better things of life. Do not run after the things that enrich your life on earth.
There are many worldly choices, but always put Christ first,
“When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, consider diligently what is before thee: And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite. Be not desirous of his dainties: for they are deceitful meat,” Proverbs 23:1-3.
A scourge is coming to this Nation and to the world.
Many will not stand when it comes,
“Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: therefore thus saith The LORD God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it,” Isaiah 28:15-18.
The LORD Jesus will come for a people looking for Him and in love with His appearing. No man knows the day or the hour when this will be.
Do not be hard hearted and stiff-necked like those who stoned Stephen to death. These purported to be the people of God, but when the Truth was presented to them, they all together rejected it,
“Ye stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye…..
……..And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” Acts 7:51,59.
God will provide us all we need, but we must submit ourselves fully to Him,
“Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it?” Isaiah 43:13.
He will have no other gods before Him!
Jesus will come for His people at the appointed time, but a great time of trouble, turmoil, affliction, need, and disaster — is coming!
Just a few short weeks back [December 2021], not far from where we live, a swath of tornadoes left massive destruction in its wake, from Arkansas to Tennessee to Kentucky. What hit Mayfield, Kentucky was devastating — much of the town gone. [News Article]
We watched on our news as the storm spread eastward. This tornado registered hundreds of miles long — on the ground for hours. That rarely happens. Most of the time, a tornado spins for about 10 minutes. Not this one. It did great devastation.
What will be next? Will we be ready when the overflowing scourge comes?
Do not look at the things of this world to pacify you, for all will be lost — all will be gone in the days ahead!
Choose you this day whom you will serve! All will be left will be to choose the Kingdom of God or the kingdom of darkness,
“And if it seem evil unto you to serve The LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve The LORD,” Joshua 24:15.
Prepare yourselves now!
A Harvest of Souls will come in, as a great time of Awakening will transpire in the midst of a great time of trouble.
Do not be like Pharaoh, who hardened his heart, for God will separate the wheat from the tares — the sheep from the goats — as a final dividing line is being drawn,
“And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:” Matthew 25:32.
As we close out another year, and begin the new, let us pray that we are found worthy to stand before The Son of Man.
Let us draw close to Jesus with all of our heart. All that matters and will remain, is His Word. Let us be strong in The LORD and in the Power of His Might!
Bless you all in The Name of Jesus Christ, Our Wonderful Lord and Saviour. Amen!

As believers, we must not pursue the American dream and its trappings. We already should be pursuing Christ alone, to please Him in all respects, but all the more as the days of trouble draw near. We must arm ourselves with the same purpose as Jesus, who endured suffering for the joy set before Him. He calls us to suffer the loss of all things here on earth and set out affections on the things above, where He sits at the right hand of God. The sufferings ahead will come because the world hates Jesus and everything He stands for and everyone who follows Him as well. Let us go out to Him, outside the camp, bearing His reproach, shame, ignominy. He who endured to the end will be saved. “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.” (Romans 8:18). “For to you it has been granted for Christ’s sake, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake,” (Philippians 1:29) Hebrews 12;1-2, 2 Tim 2:3-13
Amen to all of that!!!
Thank you. Sobering to think about. I remember Mayfield KY. I remember thinking what on earth was happening in such a small place, with a church on every corner, to bring on such judgement? Seems that in the weeks prior the community had sponsored AN ENTIRE MONTH OF HALLOWEEN CELEBRATIONS. It was meant to be a way of encouraging tourism, but I suspect it attracted unwanted things.
Amen!!! Let us draw close to Jesus with all of our heart. All that matters and will remain, is His Word. Let us be strong in The LORD and in the Power of His Might!
