We are at war!

“That is why the LORD says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the LORD your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish. Who knows? Perhaps he will give you a reprieve, sending you a blessing instead of this curse. Perhaps you will be able to offer grain and wine to the LORD your God as before.”  Joel 2:12-14 NLT.

I don't want to sound like a freak, but the END IS NEAR. The end times are nearly upon us. 

Do you feel it? It is becoming an overpowering feeling in my life. My desperation is building, not because I fear the end. I don't. What I do GREATLY fear is running out of time to save the lost. I see so many good people lost to the power of Jesus. They have no idea what they are missing. I want everyone to sit with me in heaven. We need soldiers that protect the innocent. We need soldiers that understand the enemy and know the powers of peace and love.

In the wake of the events in Orlando, San Bernadino, Paris, and an endless list of other terrorists massacres, persecutions, false preaching, general moral and sinful decay of our world, we must admit we are at war. We are at war, not JUST with radical Islamists, we are at war with satan and the evil he promotes. These terrorists are consumed with hate. They are consumed with destroying anyone they disagree with. We are also at war with the culture that would see the elimination of christian values and traditions. We are at war with a culture that believes there are NO TRUTHS, everything is ok. We at war. War is the beginning of the end. Look at this prediction:

          4Jesus told them, “Don’t let anyone mislead you, 5for many will come in my name,           claiming, ‘I am the Messiah.’ They will deceive many. 6And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately. 7Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world. 8But all this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come.
9“Then you will be arrested, persecuted, and killed. You will be hated all over the world because you are my followers.b10And many will turn away from me and betray and hate each other. 11And many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people. 12Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold. 13But the one who endures to the end will be saved. 14And the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nationsc will hear it; and then the end will come. Matthew 24:4-14

We are quickly approaching the end of time. As followers of Christ we do not need to panic. Yes, we need to grieve, we need to mourn, and we need to fast. Yet, we still need to be embolden with love, mercy, and grace. There is time! We need to step up our mission to save the world. We need to attack the attackers. We need to fight back. We need to protect our families, but not just with weapons, we need to protect our families from the evils satan is sending into our world, our nation, and our communities. The time is urgent. The time is now. Go out and share the gospel message. Love others, pray, pray, pray, pray. The Bible is our war strategy. Worship is our call to arms. The battle will be won and fought in the communities we live. We are the front lines in the most epic war of all times. I am recruiting you for our battalion. We must not fail!

Dear Lord Jesus, Give us the strength to fight evil with your strength and power. We need you. Evil is here. Evil has invaded our every day lives. Protect us Lord. Protect our families. Protect our communities. We love you. We know the final victory has already been won. Help us to bring recruits to our victorious king. I love you and honor you! Amen!
