We have been living in the last days for over two thousand years. The final countdown began with the resurrection of the world’s Savior, Jesus the Christ. There was no way God would bring an end to the world until He first made salvation possible for all men. Jesus and His Apostles gave us prophesies of the signs of the times.
1 John 2:18 Children, time is just about up. You heard that antichrist is coming. Well, they’re all over the place, antichrists everywhere you look. That’s how we know that we’re close to the end.
When Jesus began to teach and preach, the antichrist began his ministry. The vision of the antichrist is to oppose and pervert everything Jesus spoke. According to man’s calendar we have been in the last days for over two thousand years. According to God’s calendar we have been in the last days for two days. With the Lord a thousand years is as one day, Jesus was just here two days ago.
Mathew 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not even the angels of Heaven, but my Father only.
I have been in the faith for nearly forty years. From the early days of my conversion, everybody and his brother knew that Jesus would return on or before the year two thousand. They’re reasoning appeared to be sound because they were based on Scripture. But they all neglected to factor in what Jesus said, no man knows the day. Since the year two thousand has come and gone, no one has any more theories concerning the day of Christ’s return. The honest and the sincere are watching and waiting for the return of Christ, they don’t know when He will show but they know He’s coming.
2 Peter 3:3-4 In the last days scoffers (false teachers) shall come. They will say, where is the promise of His coming? Nothing has changed, all things continue as they have from the beginning.
These scoffers have convinced a lot of folks that Jesus is not coming back. You can tell by the way they live, they are not looking or watching for the Lord. Ready or not Jesus is coming for His Church, when the Father sends Him. If God would have given us the day and hour of His return, the whole world would repent before that day. They would not care anything about the Lord, they would just want to avoid a trip to hell.
God is not popular in the world He created, men are passing laws to stifle Him. He has been voted out of governments and He has been expelled from our schools. Preachers have compromised His holy Word in order to accommodate the sinner. Many churches have a secular flavor that shields the sinner from the mercy of God.
The devil is a thief,
he has come to kill, destroy, and steal.
The devil has a word,
but my Lord has the final Word.
I choose to ignore the devil,
I don’t believe what he says.
I love the Word of my Lord,
He speaks only the truth.
His Name is greater than the thief, so I will be blessed.

PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
