As we know these are the two tools of the Devil. I have been pondering for some time now a number of things in regard to the times we are living in. One of them is in regard to the Second Coming of Christ and the Era of Peace.
Which is it? You can’t have both happening at the same time. I asked the Lord this question for some time now and I received my answer. The Second Coming of Christ comes at the end – the End of the World. The Era of Peace is the Seventh Day or Sabbath Rest. I have been hearing and reading so much about both…..
So, which are we headed towards…..
The Lord will always warn us of things to come and of course He has been doing this through His prophets and through the Blessed Mother. We know something is coming and we also know that God does not always speak to us clearly, but rather symbolically, much of the time. We really have to discern who we can trust and believe. Plus you know what- I am truly so tired of hearing all of the dire words that cause so much fear. I refuse to fall into fear. I do not fear at all. If I fear anything, it is that I fear I will not trust enough or do what I am supposed to do. So that is my prayer.
I have two beliefs:
One, we are headed towards the New Era of Peace
Second, I don’t have a clue how things will unfold or what is going to happen- I believe we all have a general knowledge and sense that things will not be good. We are definitely going to be going through some tough times. But, how bad we do not know. We definitely cannot interpret God’s messages very well and if we take them literally we will surely be wrong.
I have come to the conclusion that I know nothing. I do not know what and how and when things will take place. The only thing I am quite certain about is what He has placed on my heart for quite some time now. I need to prepare spiritually and physically for the days ahead. More spiritually than physically too. I am being led to can foods and have extra on hand for others who will not have anything. I am being led to make sure I have a heat source and light source as well.
Spiritually, I am being led to be in the state of grace at all times. Go to confession regularly and stay very very close to Christ. He is going to be our strength in the times to come and will keep us safe from all deception swirling around us.
Apparently, we are in the period of great apostasy. Yes, I can certainly see that. Communism has reappeared in the form of social justice. Our morals have hit bottom and what God says is evil we say is good. Our laws now are in defiance of God’s laws.
Revelations speaks about the Anti-Christ and False Prophet. There will also be a falling away from the faith once again before the end of the World. Some are calling these times the Minor tribulations while the ones coming before the end of the world will be the great tribulations. So confusing! You know what – It doesn’t matter. It really does not mean anything so don’t worry about it.
So, I guess what I am supposed to tell you is this:
Don’t worry about all the details of what is going to happen, when, or how things will play out. God wants us to be spiritually ready at all times. We never know when our personal judgments will come. We could die tonight, tomorrow, or next year or 100 years from now. We just do not know. Be prepared Spiritually, for He will come like a thief in the night. Do not be stressed out about the chaos around the corner. Rather, do what God wants you to do today. Stay in today….not yesterday or tomorrow, because God isn’t there. He is only here in Today.
If we can do this we will not be easy prey for the evil one. Deception and confusion are commonplace right now and if we worry or become anxious about things, we will be led into a state of confusion or be easily deceived.
Do what you sense the Lord asking you to do. Keep an open mind – be like a child and trust in God to lead you to where you need to be and lead you to do what you need to do. But, you must make the first step. Do not think that God is going to do everything for you. We need to make the effort FIRST. When we do this, one step at a time, God will lead. One step at a time….don’t go before God. Follow Him.
I find it very interesting that He continually places the Time of Exodus on my heart. I know I need to learn from them. Those poor people had no clue what was in store for them and they had to literally trust God for EVERYTHING. They didn’t even have time to prepare. Their expectations fell short of what really took place. They lost hope because of that. This is a huge lesson for me. Don’t have any expectations of what is to come and how it is to play out because then for sure you shall lose hope when it doesn’t pan out the way you think it should.
God is asking us to be Hopeful and to Trust in Him in all matters and to do whats right each moment that we have life within us. Live today as though it is your last.
By the way, it doesn’t matter if this is the time of the Second Coming or the Era of Peace. No need to argue about it or worry which is which. In the end, whether we go into the Era of Peace or have our final judgement, we shall be in a better place than we are now. We will be purified and ready for either scenario. So, be at Peace and just do God’s will to the very best of your ability.
May God Bless you with what your needs are this day.
