Hebrews 12: 1-2 Therefore let us also, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin that so easily causes us to stumble, and let us run with endurance the race that has been set before us, v:2 looking unto Jesus, the author and perfecter of of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him, endured the cross, despising the shame, and he has sat down at the right hand of God.
We are the chosen generation, which might be generation X for those who reject our message in this final hour. We are the Church of the Risen Savior and what we run toward is traveling toward us one minute at a time like sand slipping through a narrow opening and the last grains are visible. History is unfolding before our eye’s as the world marches right into the madness it is foretold of. Humanity will be deceived once more that a human government can offer the hope and security of peace and prosperity as we render ourselves over to a New World Order. Because of the impossibility of this task when it is accomplished through bloodshed and martyrdom, he who has the world under his control will assume the role of God. Look up! That is when our Redeemer will draw near and in a moment we shall be caught up into the heavens to forever remain with Him. This is our hope, whether we believe in an early exit from the trials to come, or if you see the Bride of Christ testifying through courage and love befitting the return of Christ, no matter what your view, we are soon going home.
Like ancient Rome we will march in a triumphant procession glorifying God and the Lamb of God, entering into the Heavenly Jerusalem, praising He who has redeemed us from every tribe, tongue and nation; one people united by the hope we share in the blood of Christ and His Resurrection. Think on these things and encourage one another with these words. We are racing toward the finish line and like sprinters nearing the end of a long race we must prepare ourselves for what is to come by reserving all our strength and hope for this final kick. Our Banner is Christ and by life or death we will declare boldly and without shame that He Alone is the hope of this world and there can be no freedom or peace until Jesus rules and all His enemies have bowed themselves before Him. The words; “Well done my good and faithful servant,” echo in our ears so do not lose heart for He who promised is faithful and we shall prevail if we do not faint. We have hope! Hope worth living for and hope worth dying to one’s self in order to just see one more life reached for Jesus. The message of God brought Rome to its knees and the message of God will outshine any government, trial of circumstance, or interrogation, because God is greater than all and His truth shines as proof throughout the ages, and like the message of the cross, man cannot kill God or His enduring truth!
Now is our hour and now has the time come.” God help us to assume the mantle of grace and lead us to yourself until we are caught up in the air to forever be with you. Fill us with this hope and in the same way you drew the creatures to Noah to be saved, draw your people to the arch of yourself as we are faithful to lift up Christ in these final hours. Holy Spirit, help us to shine with the glory due our Father and His Only Begotten Son. Let us not fail in one of the least of your purposes and in our failures redeem and heal in spite of our shortcomings. Let our all be to Christ’ glory and expose anything that is not for that purpose. Humbly we repent as we look to you and you alone for help. Forgive us for all the times we looked for hope anywhere else. We now have our eyes on you alone Lord, and we will follow you, no matter where that may lead. Fill us with faith and courage to live out our commitments for in you we trust and in your strength alone we hope to prevail, in Jesus Name! Amen and Amen
