Today's entry will be brief, but I want to share something the Lord has laid on my heart that is very important. It is something that will affect each one of us.
Jesus Christ does not enjoy hanging out on the back burner of our heart. He is always ready to move in our lives and grow us up in Him and use us in the lives of others. When He is on the back burner, none of those things can happen. In the past 18 months, He has revealed to me so many things about Himself. He has shown me over and over again that His word is true and can be fully trusted, even more than the news we see on television or on our iphones. He is more current and real than anything we experience in this life. He is eternal.
In our culture, the End Times and the Rapture of the church are often placed on the back burner. For some reason, an attitude of ignoring it and maybe it will go away seems to be taking hold. And some people think it's just plain hogwash - it's make-believe and a fairy tale. I must say, it is time to move that pot to the front burner and pay it some attention.
Revelation 22: 20 (NKJV) says, " He who testifies to these things says, "Surely I am coming quickly." Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!" We can no longer sit back and play like the news around the world and the news regarding Israel is just the news. There will soon come a day when everything we are familiar with will change. We mustn't be so comfy and cozy in our little house on our pretty little street. The drums are beating and the trumpets are warming up! Let's get ready for His appearing! No time for the back burner anymore.
