I love it when snippets of scripture pop out and I get new insight!  Read this Psalm, which is clearly speaking of the tribulation to come.  Focus on the last verse.  I love it!
 

Psalm 75

For the choir director: A psalm of Asaph. A song to be sung to the tune “Do Not Destroy!”

We thank you, O God!
    We give thanks because you are near.
    People everywhere tell of your wonderful deeds.
God says, “At the time I have planned,
    I will bring justice against the wicked.
When the earth quakes and its people live in turmoil,
    I am the one who keeps its foundations firm. Interlude
“I warned the proud, ‘Stop your boasting!’
    I told the wicked, ‘Don’t raise your fists!
Don’t raise your fists in defiance at the heavens
    or speak with such arrogance.’”
For no one on earth—from east or west,
    or even from the wilderness—
    should raise a defiant fist.[a]
It is God alone who judges;
    he decides who will rise and who will fall.
For the Lord holds a cup in his hand
    that is full of foaming wine mixed with spices.
He pours out the wine in judgment,
    and all the wicked must drink it,
    draining it to the dregs.
But as for me, I will always proclaim what God has done;
    I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10 For God says, “I will break the strength of the wicked,
    but I will increase the power of the godly.”
 

As I pondered on the last verse, I thought about how we often think of power as having to do with physical strength, but I realized the power given to each one of us may go beyond that.  It may be the spiritual fortitude to stand firm and be willing to die for your faith, even if you know that ISIS is going to take your children and put them in sex slave trade.  Or it could be the power to love in spite of torture from your persecutors.  It might even be power to hold on to our faith and hope, in the midst of the worst of circumstances, refusing to waver from what we know is true in the Word of God.

**For those who don’t know, I no longer believe in a pre-tribulation rapture.  I believe that is a lie that has been fed to the church for many years.  It’s a lie that is going to cause a lot of people to lose their faith in the days ahead.  If you’d like to read more on what changed my mind, please click here.   There is also a very enlightening, and easy-to-understand video teaching on this topic:

Watchman’s Cry

The Revelation 12 Sign

This video is VERY interesting!  And even more so when you keep these scriptures in mind:

Genesis 1:14: And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years.

Luke 21:25: And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring.

Trump, Illuminati, and The Super Bowl

I thought this was very interesting and insightful.  I have had misgivings about Trump for a couple of years.  This information only helped solidify what I’ve been sensing in my spirit.

Did the Illuminati Foreshadow Trump at Super Bowl 48?

The Real Jesus of the Last Days

This is an absolutely FABULOUS and encouraging message.  In light of times in which we are living, I highly recommend it.  You won’t be disappointed!

Spiritual Depression

This is the best message I’ve heard in many years.  So timely for the times in which we are living.  I know it will encourage you!

Offended

I was reading through Matthew 24 and noticed something I found interesting.

10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

Notice the progression:
1. Many shall be offended.
2. They will then betray one another.
3. After the betrayal, comes hate.
4. They will be more susceptible to being deceived by the false prophets because they’ve already opened “doors” in steps 1-3.

This scripture made me think about offenses in my own life.  When I get offended, am I going to take it to the Father and allow Him to help me through it?  Or am I going to choose to hold onto that offense, and thus, open a door for me to be easily deceived by the false prophets?  (And there are MANY of them out there right now.)

When I see the reality of how I could become deceived if I choose to hold onto an offense, it suddenly makes offenses seem like little “bumps” in the spiritual road that I need to just step over and go on my way.  :waving3:
