So imagine my surprise, when both my pastors (local and online), preached this week on Spiritual warfare, I think God is laying this on out hearts and wants us to join the battle through prayer. Great update from JD this week, on what we are seeing and what we need to turn out attention to.
Some notes and highlights:
8 min mark – Attack on teaching whole counsel of the word of God. Bible Prophecy, teaching too much, stop teaching Ezekiel 38 (heaven forbid!!)
17 min mark – Mocking of the coming (2 Peter 3:3-10)
20 min mark – Clean of all blood on my hands (Acts 20:26-28) Because he preached the Word.
21 min mark – Not put up with sound doctrine (2 Timothy 3:16-4:5) – “Preach the Word”
26 min mark – Be a Faithful Watchman
27 min mark – Israel’s top govt official encouraging all Jews to read through the entire bible.
29 min mark – Joel Rosenberg – Why pastors are not teaching Bible Prophecy?
- Lack in belief in the power of God’s Word
- Lack of training in Bible Prophecy
- Fear of being lumped in with prophecy nuts
- Because lack of understanding of the times we live in (2 Peter 3)
Mathew 24 – 2 servant example – when master delayed His return.
38 min mark – Prophecies that are already underway or near fulfillment
Isaiah 17 – about to be fulfilled
Isaiah 19 – is being fulfilled right now
Ezekiel 38-39 – about to be fulfilled
Rapture could happen any hour, when you see these things begin to come to pass, look up, your redemption draws neigh.
Great, string of topics and very relevant today…
Remember, the darker it gets, the brighter and farther our little light shines!
Maranatha, Lord come quickly!

In Romans 10 Paul lays out how salvation is open to all, Jew and Gentile. He writes:
“For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.” – Romans 10:4-5
What he is saying is now it is not about works or how closely to a “T” you follow the law. But that it is through God’s gift of grace through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. It is really that simple, and yet a hard step for some of us.
“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10:9
Christ is the narrow gate (Matthew 7:13-14), through faith in Him you will be saved. It is the only “works” that God requires for eternal salvation.
