DEC 30/31 [BREAD OF LIFE: [TIME OF THE END-LAST TIMES]
PONDERING: Daniel was told by GOD that Daniels time was NOT THE END. Jesus would not come into our world for another 600 years from Daniel. According to most all of the prophesies, we are in the end time period, and according to scripture, SO WAS JESUS when He manifested upon earth to be sacrificed for our sins. Perhaps the end times started when Jesus completed the task for which He was appointed for that time. A task which required the sacrifice of His life to provide a way of forgiveness of sin for all those who repent, and a task which limited the days of satan upon this earth. From that time onward the earth has experienced strife and war in one place or another. When the last trumpet sounds it will be too late to escape the Wrath that descends upon the earth to cleanse it for Jesus’ rule upon the earth, with the help of the Eternal Saints. Those who are alive and who have believed His Testimony and submitted to His Will, giving all that they have [acknowledging that it is His to use as He pleases] will be changed into their Eternal Bodies in a twinkling when that last trumpet begins to sound. For Believers it will be a new beginning. Those left upon earth will experience the greatest woe of all as the final last days come to their completion in this period of time, which is the time of the end.
SCRIPTURES (KJV): Daniel 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed TILL THE TIME OF THE END. Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to THE TIME OF THE END: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
Hebrews 9:26 For then must He [JESUS] often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once IN THE END OF THE WORLD has He appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. John 18:37 Pilate therefore said unto Him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To THIS END was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth hears my voice. 1 Peter 1:19-25 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in THESE LAST TIMES for you, Who by Him do believe in God, that raised Him up from the dead, and gave Him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God. Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which lives and abides for ever. For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower thereof falls away: But the word of the Lord endures for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you. 2 Timothy 3:1-9 This know also, that IN THE LAST DAYS perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, …
Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. Romans 14:9 For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that He might be Lord both of the dead and living. Revelation 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. 1 Corinthians 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. Matthew 13:40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. Revelation 22:12-13 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
PRAYER: FATHER, you have supplied us well through Jesus to endure these end of times and to invite others upon this journey. Thank you for all that you are doing, have done, and will do, for all works towards the perfection of the New Beginning for mankind through Jesus. Amen.
