The Jerusalem Problem – Zechariah 12:3

Zechariah 12:3

New King James Version (NKJV)

And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.

If you have not asked Christ into your life, the essential gospel is that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and that He was raised on the third day (1 Cor. 15:3-4).  Believing this is the only qualification for salvation.  We are sinners in need of a savior.  Jesus died for our sins, and to prove that His death was sufficient for us,  God raised Him from the dead on the third day. Believing in our heart that God raised Him from the dead is our assurance that He will raise us, too.
 3 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, (1 Cor. 15:3-4).

Another great update from JD.

The line that really struck me that I had never been able to put into words before but had an urging to try was about the questions we get so often from friends and family that maybe don’t agree with our believe in the imminent Rapture.

See if this sounds familiar:  If you really believe in the Rapture, then why plan at all for next year or beyond?

Pastor JD summed it up the best I have ever heard. 

We are to hope, pray, and look for Christ’s return for us every day.  It is our blessed hope and assurance. 

Do we plan for next year or ten years out?  Of course.  We want to be as ready for his return next year or in ten years as we are today.  If we do not have plans to keep us going and prepared then would we be in a position to be ready for his Return?  Which servant would we be?  Have we truly “Occupied” until his return?

We are to make plans, both short and long-term, but we need to hold them in our hand palms up, loosely, not like you hold a bike handle (tight and rigid) but as you would  water in your palm (open and loose).

Our plans should not own us, we can not serve two masters.  Does the plan control our actions, do you serve it, or do we control the plan based on God’s word and whispers to us during our prayers.

We need to put ourselves in a position where we can enact God’s will in our lives until that blessed day he returns for us.

Great message…

This weeks update from JD is very good but start around the 9 1/2 minute mark as he has some fathers day stuff at the beginning, which if you’re a father is nice but I understand that your time is valuable.

This weeks discussion is around the Rapture!  My blessed hope!

The Quote that struck me:  “It is time to be ready, it is too late to get ready.”

Great Commentary, take the time to listen.

Great update on what all we are seeing and the phenomenon of “disbelief” that we are witnessing…

Pastor JD echos the heavy heart that I have been feeling.  But that is not really a good description.  It is more than that.  It really is a very strange combination of heavy heart, intense feeling that something big is just about to happen (anxious & nervousness combined), and finally a felling of things getting harder, as if the incline is quickly increasing on the treadmill of life.

Not a simple or pleasant feeling or easily described, but even though I feel weighted down by it.  I have this thread of nervous excitement, anticipation.  For what I am not exactly sure.

When I heard JD’s update this week, I was so very comforted.  Not because it necessarily cleared anything up for me, but it echoed the feelings I was having.  It confirmed that it is not just me.  I have since confirmed this with other brothers and sisters in Christ that I trust and listen to.

He quoted some very eerie prophetic words from Paul Harvey back in 1965.  I have included the full audio & text of it below.  It was the second time I have heard it this week and it just really hits home.

Paul Harvey’s words really do exactly match what has happened since they were spoken some 47 years ago.  They paint a picture of what Paul told Timothy the last days would be like.

2 Timothy 3:1-5 – (NKJV) – Perilous Times and Perilous Men

3 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

Lets run down the list:

– Lovers of themselves — check

– Lovers of money — check

– Boasters and proud — check

– Blasphemers — check

– Disobedient to parents — check

– Unthankful — check

– Unholy — check

– Unloving — check

– Unforgiving — check

– Slanderers — check

– Without self-control — check

– Brutal despisers of good — check

– Traitors — check

– Headstrong, haughty — check

– Lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God — check

– Having a form of godliness but denying its power — check

I think that about sums up what we are seeing.  But wait you say, we have seen all of these things throughout history what makes this time special.

Ahh, I may agree if Paul was talking about the world but he is talking about the church.  This is what has crept into the church in the last days.  Read the next five verses.

2 Timothy 3:6-10 – (NKJV)

For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith; but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was.

The other piece that makes me so sure in my heart is the magnitude we are seeing and the combination with other end times signs.  It is the entire picture God is painting for us, if we just have eyes to see.

“For men will be lovers of themselves…” and

“…lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God…”

Those two really stood out to me and drove the nail home.

The phrase “Pastors will preach man centered sermons” and the term “itching ears” pops into my mind.

JD does an excellent job stepping through the progression we are seeing.

God’s Word is truly amazing!  Praise God!

It is all there for us to read, all we have to do is have the desire to look.  To knock and the door will be opened…

Another area that JD explores is the comparison between the two end time churches Jesus speaks of in Revelation.

Philadelphia (Revelation 3:7-13) and Laodicea (Revelation 3:14-22)

“…I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name….” – Revelation 3:8 (partial)

“You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’…” – Revelation 3:17 (partial)

What pastor JD pointed out that I had not caught before was that the Philadelphia (faithful) end time church will be “weak” or “weakened” in the last days.  It will be the Laodicea (unfaithful) church that will be strong when measured by this worlds standards.

Give it a listen, maybe it will bring you comfort as well.

Satan wants us uninterested in the things of God.

The stakes are so high: eternal life or eternal death.

Why would you not be concerned about that!

It seems the Lord is sending me a message early in this new year.  I have had the thoughts and feelings to slow down and listen, calm my mind, clear my life of the “clutter”.  Normally, I get this feeling every year, wanting to rid my life of stuff and simplify but normally it is just physical stuff and yes I still have those feelings but it is different this year.  I feel the Lord is really trying to get through to me to quiet my mind and listen, block out all the “noise” of today and truly listen, because time is short.  I think “time is short” is the secondary message I am getting.  It is the feeling when someone calls you over to tell you something important and says shhh, shhh, we need to focus here and execute.

This morning I posted an article I have read a few weeks back before the holidays, saved off and re-read this morning after my prayers.  It was the one the Lord led me to and I was prompted to post.   Then this evening, I listen to my favorite paster from the islands out west, and toward the end, he tells a story about the same topic, we need to “hear the still small voice”.

Are we slowing down to hear what God is asking us?

That is the question I am asking myself everyday now, are you?

A great sermon this week, this is one you will want to listen to again and again to unpack it all.

It is actually very useful and reassuring in these times…
