Are We Living in the Last Days
Posted by Shofar
From my Journal- April 16, 2012
Are we living in the last days that the Bible speaks about? Is this generation the generation that will see the return of Christ?
Why is the church without power and not making a difference in the world? What is happening with the increasing evil, greed and corruption, economic crisis, civil revolutions in every nation, earthquakes and bad weather? Why are the institutions of family and marriage being threatened? Why does everything seem to be falling apart at the seams? What is Satan’s role in any of this?
God is looking for watchmen, his priests, ministers, lay people, His servants like the faithful Bible heroes Moses, Joshua, Abraham, Joseph, and the prophets of old who stood in the gap for their people. There were people like Rahab, Cornelius, the Macedonian jailer and those who heard about and believed in the saving power of the Lord who they took the responsibility for their household’s safety and salvation. The Bible is replete with testimonies of God’s people who trusted in Him and faithfully served Him!
What about our present day generation? How will people be saved except that they be shown their Savior and Redeemer and be brought to safety? We have to enter into the ark of safety as Noah and his family did. We need to be covered by the blood of Jesus as the homes that were marked the night the death angel passed the homes of the Israelites and Egyptians. We must stay inside the walled city, in the shelter of the Almighty. We must secure the hedges round about us that leave no place for the enemy to come in. We must abide in the secret place of the Most High God and we must abide in God’s Word so that He will abide in us and with us.
