There are those that search every day for words from the Lord describing cataclysms or bad things to come, appearing to be feeling down without a piece of bad news from God to set their day. There are even some web sites that make up their own word, just for the traffic or their own significance. I found this quite troubling. I rarely have a direct Word from God, or some sort of miraculous event to keep my day going so I live contently on His scriptures and the promises and warnings contained therein, while looking about me at real world events unfolding.
Now I read that there’s going to be a great earthquake on May 20th along with a total eclipse of the sun centering over the Aleutian Islands. What is it with this 20th or 21st number, allegedly in the Mayan calendar, that everyone else seems to keep pulling up as coming from God, even Harold Camping did that. Seems odd that the Mayans would be communicating with God revealed to His people Israel.
In my quiet time this morning I received what I believe was a Word from the Lord that needed to be proclaimed today.
“Why do you worry? Why do you continually wait for more? Why are you afraid of My silence. Have I not spoken? Have I not proclaimed My intentions? Is there no place that I haven’t shown what is to come? I have given warnings, I have given instruction, I have given encouragement. Have I not revealed in My Logos, and now confirm, what is to come. I have given warnings, I have given instruction, I now expect you to take those actions, preparing for when I call. My silence is for you to bear fruit, like the seed buried in the ground in silence to burst forth at it’s appointed time. DO what I have told you to do, now, not more, not less. Prepare, as I have told you. Do not forget what your primary call is, even now. Prepare for my coming. The field is white unto Harvest. Spread my Word that when I come My table is not empty. Don’t fear My silence because I am coming, yes, I am on My way.”
So, that is what I heard and I believe it is also for you. This is a time of preparation, buy and store the food, take the precautions as God has led you, but like the Manna from heaven not more. Instead of going out and buying the latest Blackberry or Iphone use that money to invest in God’s kingdom. Our primary reason for our being was, is, and continues to be, to proclaim the Day of the Lord and sow for His harvest. God is changeless, don’t take His instruction lightly, His silence is for your own good….
