Personal From... A Daily Reminder

The other evening I was watching a documentary about the International Space Station (ISS) which maintains an orbit around the Earth of 250 miles travelling at 17,100 miles per hour, and circling the Earth in roughly 93 minutes! About how the astronauts, throughout the 22 years that the ISS has been operational, has been witness to an ever-changing Earth. One not for the better, but for the worse. The growing demand for water combined with drought has caused lakes and rivers around the world to dry up. Such as Iran’s Lake Urmia, the Aral Sea – which borders Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. And, the list appears to be never-ending. Also, they have noticed that Mount Kilimanjaro – the highest peak in all of Africa, which is a dormant volcano in Tanzania with a height of 19,341 feet above sea level – has a diminishing ice cap. Nearly 85% of the ice which covers Kilimanjaro has disappeared between 1912 to 2011! Reason!? Deforestation from around the mountain! The astronauts have noticed - with the ever-growing world population – mysterious green circles throughout the Al Khufrah Oasis in southeastern Libya! What are they!? One of Libya’s largest agricultural projects - tracts of agriculture supported by centre-pivot irrigation. They are growing food in the desert! These observers from space are seeing humanity’s ever-growing footprint – cities! City lights at night present the space observer spectacular evidence of our population growth, of our destruction, of our modernization, and the fact that we are changing our environment for the worse.

Now, I said all that to say this – On December 14th, 2020 I had written of a prophetic dream which I had back in 2015. And, I truly didn’t want that message to end with just doom and gloom, but rather I wanted that dire WARNING to end with hope – hope for all humanity. Because at the end of that article I implored EVERYONE to “repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.” In that article “Blow the Trumpet!” I warned of the soon-coming attack on the tiny nation in the Middle East called Israel from Iran (the number-one terrorist nation in the world) along with Syria! Yet, humanity as a whole is facing a far greater crisis! For the first time since humans inhabited the earth, on August 6th, 1945, weapons of mass destruction now exist that can annihilate every man, woman, and child from this planet! TODAY there now exists nuclear weapons which can produce an insane 50-megaton blast – about 3,333 times more powerful than the Little Boy bomb which leveled an entire city!

Now, I see – ever-so-often – people posting on Facebook reminders of the September 11 attacks on the United States of America. And indeed we should be reminded of this always, but why are there no WARNINGS or REMINDERS of the very crisis of human survival!? Are we forgetting friends around the world – just completely placing out of our minds – that the 7.8 Billion of us are in grave danger!? Do we think that just by keeping our minds off this fact, the threat will somehow just go away!? Is it too frightening to think about!? Is this world playing ostrich having their heads buried in the sand!?

This tiny voice in the wilderness is here to remind you – that there is a cause for every effect. Let us not deceive ourselves! Let us not be so naïve to believe that nuclear, electromagnetic pulse weapons (EMPs), and other mass-destruction weapons are so frightening that no nation would ever dare unleash them! No weapon ever produced has not been used! Remember the 50-megaton blast I mentioned earlier? Well, the Tsar Bomba – a hydrogen aerial bomb, the most powerful nuclear weapon yet produced was detonated for testing on October 30th, 1961! This world’s nuclear family includes:

  • Russia (6,375 nuclear warheads).
  • The United States of America (5,800 nuclear warheads).
  • France (290 nuclear warheads).
  • China (320 nuclear warheads).
  • The United Kingdom (215 nuclear warheads).
  • Pakistan (160 nuclear warheads).
  • India (135 nuclear warheads).
  • Israel (90 warheads).
  • North Korea (30-40 nuclear warheads). 1
Now, the Industrial Revolution within Europe and the United States from about 1760 to about 1840 greatly increased mankind’s awesome progress!

Indeed, there seems to be no limit to human accomplishment – physical and material. But our ever-growing troubles are spiritual in nature.

There is an invisible spiritual Law that governs every one of our lives. It is a Law as sure as there is the first law of thermodynamics. And, this universal Law is as inexorable as the law of gravity. You break it, it breaks you. Well, the whole world has been breaking this universal Law since the beginning of mankind! Friends, true world peace, true happiness, and true well-being were taken from us!

But it isn’t too late – even now – for a deceived and misled world (2 Corinthians 4:4; Revelation 12:9), to awaken to its soon bankruptcy – morally and spiritually. But, sadly, if this self-willed and vain humanity will not heed – the ‘strong right hand of the LORD’ will intervene very soon in this world’s chaotic troubles – and will forestall a death blow to all humanity (cf. Matthew 24:21-22) From the time of creation it tells us in the Book of Mark until that time this will be the worst time out of all of them! THE WORST TIME OF TROUBLE!

Isaiah 58.
“’ Cry aloud, spare not; Lift up your voice like a trumpet; Tell My people their transgression, And the house of Jacob their sins’”Isaiah 58:1.
Friends, in spite of humanity the wonderful WORLD TOMORROW will arrive!

Our Lord Jesus Christ enters and gets involved directly with human beings at the END of the Day of the LORD. However, the saints have ALREADY been resurrected. And we know from the Wedding Supper of the Lamb that the saints – the resurrected saints – and Jesus Christ, and God the Father, and the holy angels have ALREADY spent some time in New Jerusalem – the throne of GOD – in low earth orbit. And it’s hard to say HOW LONG that will occur. cf. Revelation 19, Jesus Christ directly engages in the battle. Now, Zechariah 14:1 – “Behold, the day of the LORD is coming, …”

NOTICE Zechariah 14:5b – “…Thus the LORD my God will come AND ALL THE SAINTS WITH YOU.” All the resurrected saints. This is AFTER the resurrection! So, friends, IF you understand that the RESURRECTION is on the SEVENTH TRUMP the LAST TRUMP, and then you’ve got the SEVEN LAST PLAGUES (which is another name for the Day of the Lord), now you understand that during the Day of the Lord the resurrected saints are ALREADY in the Kingdom of God. Already members of the Family of GOD.

Friends, it’s as sure as the rising of the sun tomorrow!

King David in Psalm 34 reminds us that we should praise Almighty God through the good times and the bad. Praise unto Him should fill our hearts every single day, no matter our circumstances – especially when we are walking through seasons of trials. Praise His glorious name in storms, in battles, and when life itself gets difficult. Let us fill our hearts with words of praise for the LORD our God with thanksgiving. Turn our eyes toward Him and allow Him to surround us with His love, with His strength, with His Spirit. □
