Some of my journal writings are found elsewhere on this site, e.g. in ‘Journal Musings’ which I stopped posting in 2015. While I have been remiss in writing there, I journal regularly in my personal notebook. I thought to share with you what I wrote on December 31, 2019 and on March 17, 2020 this past week. When I wrote the first post below I knew nothing about the present corona virus that would become a world pandemic.
Regarding 2020 as written on 12–31-20.
A FOREBODING YEAR
This will be the year that many we are interceding for are going to be visited by God. It may be through trying situations or through their unsettledness of what they see going on in the world. Many will experience fears and anxieties. God knows just what it will take to bring people to their knees to see their need for God’s saving grace, healing power, and/or deliverance from the troubled times we will see that will shake up communities, society, the nation and the world.
There will be cataclysmic events upon the earth, roaring of oceans and whirlwinds; nature will go amok; wildlife and the entire animal world will behave out of their normal patterns or habits because of climatic disturbances and extreme weather, earthquakes and volcano eruptions will take place in unexpected places.
Evil and corruption will escalate with unbelievable scenarios, and the spirit of rebellion and immorality will be the order of the day as lawlessness increases.
In the church world, apostasy will continue with the churches being emptied out because of lukewarmness, worldliness and compromise as Satan sows his seed of destruction in lies and deception with false teachers and gospels designed for itching ears.
It will not be a year that we would like, but a foreboding one. It will bring in last minute converts for the time is short and the door is being closed. It is time to get serious doing the Lord’s work and drawing closer to Him, setting priorities in our lives for the days will get darker.
WHY THE CORONA VIRUS? (3-17-20)
It is for the testing of man’s hearts.
For those in spiritual darkness that they will repent from their sins and turn to the Lord. For it is the last time. Soon the door will be closed and the seven days of years will begin. But God is ever merciful that none should perish.
For those who are lukewarm, the nominal Christian so that they will look at where they stand in their relationship with God.
For those who know their Lord and Savior that they will be ready for His Coming which will be very, very soon.
It will be as the plagues of Egypt with the last one being the death angel. We must be inside the house with the blood on our doorposts.
Many people don’t know how to handle the Covid-19 pandemic, so that makes it an excellent time to be a witness. There will be the fearful and the troubled and they will open their hearts to the Lord. When many die, especially the older ones and then children, people will turn to God. It will not be a revival, but Covid-19 will definitely test the hearts of mankind.
To all of you who have visited and read our blogposts at ‘God’s Enduring Love‘ https://heulu.wordpress.com and ‘God’s Hidden Nuggets for the Endtimes’ http://drgoldsite.wordpress.com, here are our prayers for you in the coming New Year 2020:
1. That you will draw closer to God this year, even moreso as we are ‘troubled on every side’ and continue to live in very difficult and ‘perilous times’ (2Cor 4:8; 2Tim 3:1).
2. That you will holdfast to God’s Word and His many promises to us who trust in Him and look for the Blessed Hope of His Soon Return in the Rapture (Titus 2:13). Do not waver in your faith or succumb to the things of the world, and fall into apostasy as many have by believing the deceptive lies of Satan.
Most of the world has celebrated the first part of Isaiah 9:6 ‘For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given’ and that is the extent of their understanding of why we celebrate Jesus’ birth. But they are ignorant of the rest of Isaiah’s prophecy (made 600 years before Jesus’ birth) which states ‘and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace‘. Jesus will soon return and establish His kingdom on earth. A government of lasting peace and justice under Jesus’ rule is coming soon. (vs 7).
3. That you will be studying the Word of God and looking for the signs of the Lord’s Return in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21. It is only through diligence in Bible study will we have God’s approval and blessings, and understand the mysteries of His Word (2Tim 2:15).
Isaiah prophesied what the world would be like and gave a description of the people living in the last days just before Jesus’ Coming in Is60:1-2: ‘ARISE, SHINE; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.’ This is a Messianic prophecy and it clearly indicates that unstable world conditions, depravity and wickedness of the people will prevail in the endtime. These conditions already exist and are escalating.
DEAR FRIEND, if your love for God has grown lukewarm or if you do not have a meaningful relationship with God and haven’t yet accepted Jesus as your Savior and Lord in your life, you are on dangerous ground. You are in deep big trouble and Satan will seek to destroy you (John 10:10). JESUS CAME TO GIVE US LIFE AND LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY. In John 3:16 it says to BELIEVE in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will not perish, but have eternal life. If you are missing peace and joy in your life and you have no assurance of where you will spend eternity, I IMPLORE YOU TO REPENT AND GET YOURSELF RIGHT WITH GOD! Please read my testimony in my ABOUT. I thought I had everything, but my life was empty and without peace and joy. I was a backslider for many years and lost my way, but God had His Hand on my life as He does yours. So REPENT, RETURN, AND BE RECONCILED WITH GOD. GOD BLESS YOU!!!
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth (3John 2). ~Liz and Wyman (Drgold)
