HE HATH BUT A SHORT TIME! Posted 062420 @ 12.22 pm
I have a word for the Body. The Father is saying: HE HATH BUT A SHORT TIME. It is written in Revelation 12.12: Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth he hath but a short time. Beloved, the enemy is running amuck because he knows his time is short. This is good news for followers of Christ! Just as all hell broke loose in Egypt, as God poured out His wrath upon the Egyptians, God is about to pour His wrath out upon the inhabiters of the earth for rejecting Him and rejecting Christ Jesus, His only begotten Son. But, just as God protected the Hebrews in Egypt, as the plagues were being poured out, He is protecting His children today, by the same precious Blood of the Lamb of God.
For perilous times have come, and men are lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof; from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with diverse lusts, ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of truth. As Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth; men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further; for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs was also. Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them, that from a child thou hast known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by Mine own inspiration and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness; that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying: Where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by My Word the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water; whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished; but the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same Word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. Be not ignorant of this one thing: that one day is with Me as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. I am not slack concerning My promise, but am longsuffering toward you, not willing that any should perish but that all shall come to repentance. But the day of the LORD shall come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness; looking for and hasting unto the coming of that day, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless ye, according to My promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such such things, be diligent that ye may be found of Him in peace, without spot, and blameless. And account that My longsuffering is salvation. Seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness. But grow in grace and in the knowledge of your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone; which is the second death. This generation shall not pass till all these things be fulfilled. Therefore, judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts; and then shall every man praise Me. Nevertheless, when the Son of man cometh, shall He find faith on the earth? HE HATH BUT A SHORT TIME! Amen.
ALL IS WELL AND WELL IS ALL.
