Time of Sorrows

Dear beloved: It is obvious from recent new events that we are very much in the time of sorrows, the time of birth pangs, and the sorrows and pangs are beoming increasingly stronger and closer together. Matthew 24:6-8 And you shall hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not troubled, for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. v7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there shall be famines and pestilence, and earthquakes in diverse places. v8 All these are the beginning of sorrows (birth pangs).

God gave a prophetic sign when a 6.3 magnitude earthquake rocked Christchurch, New Zealand. We are saddened by the deaths and injuries, and of coarse the devestation of the city will take many years to rebuild. The main spire of the Anglican Cathedral in the center of Christchurch was toppled, the exclamation point on the shaking of that city. The Lord is saying to all who have ears to hear, and especially to Christ's church, His church, get ready for a great shaking is coming. Haggai 2:6 For thus saith the Lord of hosts, Yet once, in a little while, I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land. v7 And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come; and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of Hosts. Everything in our world is going to get shaken, so therefore, get your eyes on Jesus and your feet on the rock that cannot be shaken. Get your eyes off man's doctines, man's denominations, man's rewriting of the scriptures to accommodate his sinful desires, for God is going to shake all of that to the ground, just as he did the spire of the Christchurch Cathedral.

I Peter 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin in the house of God; and if it first begin with us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? v18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? v19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to Him in well being, as unto a faithful Creator. Beloved, this is a time of self examination, for how can we in the church bring to the world the message of salvation if we ourselves are full of sin? Let judgment begin in the house of God, so we can be ready to bring in the harvest of the ungodly and the sinner, as the Lord requires. Examine yourself this day, heed the warning from God! Get your feet planted firmly on the Rock, Jesus Christ. May God bless you this day, in Christ, Jim
