In the final hours as we wait for our Bridegroom, Jesus, do not be discouraged as you watch the effacement of the world that you grew up in, or the thinning of the moral fiber cervix that once protected you. In fact, “When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near,” Luke 21:28 NIV. The cervical and moral safety net of the Earth has been broken, just like that of the breaking of the amniotic fluid of a pregnant woman indicating that her child will soon be born. It is time for the onset of painful contractions of labor to birth the Kingdom of God. The worldwide upheaval of political, and religious deception should only convince you more that His Coming is nearer than we could have ever thought possible twenty years ago. Jesus told you that He would come like a “thief in the night.” “Night” is literally and figuratively symbolic here. It is a time when no one would be expecting anything to happen, because they are either asleep or just carrying on business as usual. “And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light,” Romans 13:11-12 NIV. Wake up Church, and help me watch! Wipe the slumber from your eyes! Do not fall back asleep! It is 3 minutes to midnight! “Behold, the Bridegroom cometh,” Matthew 25:6 KJV.
