The Calamity of the Hour
Precious Ones as we are living the scriptures of Matthew 24 & Luke 21, let us remember JESUS forewarned us concerning the last days. HE set the stage, allowing us to see the signs of the times. HE did not leave us in the dark, HIS WORD has been preparing us for this day and this hour.
I had a dream recently……
In my dream, I saw a vehicle sitting during a storm. As we sat in the vehicle and another storm was fast approaching, the vehicle would not start. I heard GOD say Repentance is the key…..
In 2 Chronicles 7:14 JEHOVAH GOD is directing a question to HIS People concerning the circumstances of their day…..
If – in the event that, granting that, on the condition of; n- a possibility, condition or stipulation
Stipulation – to lay down as a condition of, an agreement, require by contract; to make an express demand or provision in an agreement; to guarantee or promise (something) in an agreement; something stipulated especially a term or condition in an agreement
If, small word with a multitude of possibilities…..
Subject– MY PEOPLE, GOD is not talking to the world, but is specifically speaking to HIS PEOPLE, HIS FAMILY concerning the rules, standards and regulations of HIS HOUSE (us). If is a question, if you do this I will do that??? Will we stop living in agreement with the way of the world, society, the customs of the day or will we rise up and return to the Biblical Principals of Our Covenant?
2 Chronicles 7:14
“If MY People which are called by MY Name shall humble themselves and pray, and seek MY Face, and turn from Their Wicked Ways, then will I Hear from Heaven, and I will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
- Humble themselves (not proud or haughty, not arrogant); expressing or offered in a spirit of deference or submission. I Peter 5:6-9
- Pray – to make a request in a humble manner; to address GOD with adoration, confession, supplication or thanksgiving. Philippians 4:6-7
- Seek MY Face – to go in search of, look for, try to discover, desire, Jeremiah 29:11-13
- Turn from wickedness – the quality or state of being wicked, mischief, devilishness, devilment, straying from MY WORD/MY WAYS, idolatry, sin. I Timothy 4:1-3 & II Timothy 3:1-5
As we repented the vehicle started and we drove out of the storm.
Society has infected our perspective.
Have we sought GOD’S hand without honoring HIS commandments?
Have we derogated HIS Word?
Derogate – to cause to seem inferior; to take away a part so as to impair, detract; to act beneath one’s position or character
We are in need of a recalibration to GOD’S Word, HIS Ways, HIS Standards, a reset to The Original Owners Manual,The Bible.
Recalibrate– to calibrate something again. Verb – these systems gradually drift off course so that the navigator periodically needs a fresh point of reference to recalibrate to the original standard.
Calibrate – to adjust precisely for a particular function; to measure precisely; to measure against the standard
Once our Belief system has been calibrated, reset to the original standard, we are to trust GOD to see us through.
We must renew our minds to GOD’S Word…
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is the good, and acceptable, and perfect will of GOD.”
2 Timothy 1:7
“For GOD has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
II Corinthians 10:4-5
(“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through GOD to the pulling down of strongholds)
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of GOD, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of CHRIST.”
“In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.”
“Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline thine ear unto me, and save me.”
“Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.”
“Deliver me, O GOD, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.”
“For thou art my hope, O Lord GOD, thou art my trust from my youth.”
Psalms 18: 1-2
“I will love thee, O Lord, my strength.”
“The Lord is my rock, and my fortress and my deliverer; My GOD, My strength, in whom I will trust……”
“Be strong and of good courage; fear not, nor be afraid of them: for The Lord thy GOD, HE it is that goes with thee: HE will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”
“Trust in The Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding.”
“In all thy ways acknowledge HIM, and HE shall direct thy paths.”
“The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and HE knows them that trust in HIM.”
Watch and see what GOD will do
It’s up to Me and it’s up to You.
