It Is Coming - By Daymond Duck - https://www.raptureready.com/2022/12/24/it-is-coming-by-daymond-duck/
On Dec. 17, 2022, it was reported that Rep. David Cicilline, a Democrat from Rhode Island, has introduced legislation to permanently bar former Pres. Trump from running for president again, and 40 Democrats have signed on.
Cicilline is accusing Trump of orchestrating an insurrection on Jan. 6, 2021.
At the time of this writing, it is debatable as to whether Cicilline’s legislation will get voted on before the new Congress takes office in 2023, but some conservatives have said from the beginning that the main purpose of the Jan. 6 fake show-trial was to stop Trump from being elected again.
Some, including this writer, have said there is no telling what the U.S. shadow government will do to prevent making America great again (MAGA) because they want to surrender the sovereignty of the U.S. to the New World Order (coming world government).
It was easy to see this coming, and while there is some doubt about Cicilline’s legislation getting voted on, there is no doubt in the minds of some Bible prophecy teachers that the New World Order and the Reign of Antichrist are coming.
That is what “Build Back Better” and “The Great Reset” are all about (making everyone on earth subject to a godless world government).
Trump is seen as an impediment that must be permanently removed.
Here are more signs that indicate that it is coming.
One, concerning a peace treaty in the Middle East: on Dec. 14, 2022, potential Israeli Prime Min. Netanyahu repeated his belief that an Abraham Accords normalization agreement with Saudi Arabia would lead to an agreement with all the Arab nations and eventually to peace with the Palestinians.
Netanyahu said, “I intend to pursue it.”
Two, concerning a peace treaty in the Middle East: on Dec. 14, 2022, the European Union (EU) Parliament said, “The next Israeli government should make a clear commitment in favor of the Two-State Solution” (commit to the division of Israel, something that will trigger the Battle of Armageddon; Joel 3:2).
The resolution called for a European (home of the Antichrist who will confirm a peace treaty; Dan. 9:26) to lead the peace process, and it says, “Two sovereign democratic states living side by side in peace and guaranteed security (peace and safety; I Thess. 5:3), with Jerusalem as the capital of both states and in full respect of internal law.”
Three, concerning the global energy crisis: on Dec. 16, 2022, the International Energy Agency (IEA) reported that coal demand has hit an all-time high.
With winter and blackouts looming, the deliberate shortage of natural gas has caused the demand for coal to soar.
One would think climate change advocates would be upset about people freezing to death, but they seem more upset by the increased use of coal.
Four, concerning the U.S. economy and deceit: on Dec. 13, 2022, the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia said the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics overstated the March through June 2022 employment numbers by more than one million people.
Five, with the help of 39 Republicans in the House and 12 Republicans in the Senate, Pres. Biden got his so-called “Respect for Marriage” passed. (It is really a bill to legalize immorality or gay marriage).
Texas Rep. Chip Roy asked for an amendment to prevent the government from discriminating against those that believe in traditional (Biblical) marriage, but that was blocked. (So immorality is legal, and criticizing it might bring the government down on you. What is happening to freedom of speech?)
Six, concerning natural disasters: during the Tribulation Period, a star will fall from heaven burning as a lamp; it will pollute a third part of the rivers and streams on earth, and many that drink them will die (the third trumpet judgment; Rev. 8:10-11).
In 2022, there has been at least a dozen verifiable reports of very bright fireballs in the sky around the world (Spain, China, U.S., UK, Brazil, Portugal, India, etc.).
On Dec. 18, 2022, a very bright fireball exploded over China that caused a loud boom, damaged a cement road, broke streetlights, shook and broke windows, etc.
Citizens in the area gathered several suspected fragments from the fireball for the Chinese government, and one suspected fragment was more than 3 inches long and weighed about 7 pounds.
Seven, concerning wars and rumors of wars: on Dec. 15, 2022, it was reported that Russia has loaded its second nuclear missile into a silo (the missile is reportedly capable of carrying 15 nuclear warheads) and threatened to fire it on London in the UK if Ukraine attacks Russian territory.
On Dec. 19, 2022, it was reported that Henry Kissinger said a nuclear war caused by Ukraine is imminent.
(My opinion: I do not believe Russia will use nuclear weapons against the UK, U.S., or any NATO nation. That would start a nuclear war that would do incredible damage to everyone, including Russia. According to the Bible, Russia’s military will be destroyed on the mountains of Israel, not in Ukraine or Russia.)
Eight, concerning pestilences and the globalist desire to reduce the population of the earth: every day, there are reports of increased deaths around the world that are caused by mRNA Covid-19 jabs.
Autopsies are finding inflammation of the heart arteries, blood clots that blocked and obstructed arteries, etc., to a greater degree in people that have been jabbed than in people that have not been jabbed.
On Dec. 17, 2022, it was reported that a Rasmussen Poll of 1,000 U.S. citizens on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1, 2022, found that 56% said they had no side effects, 34% said they had minor side effects, 7% said they had major side effects, and 4% said they were not sure if they had any side effects from taking the jab. (The numbers were rounded off and may explain why the total comes up to over 100%.)
Other reports have found similar results, and the fact that 7% of the U.S. citizens that were surveyed reported major side effects is incredibly high.
(Note: Some officials believe the situation is worse than reported because Rasmussen could not poll deceased citizens.)
Nine, concerning the distress of nations: on Dec. 19, 2022, Israel’s Intelligence Ministry issued an assessment of world events that will be coming over the next 10 years.
The Jerusalem Post obtained a copy of the report and said, “The world is at a transition point analogous to being on the verge of a cliff, after which a series of crises striking simultaneously will reorder the planet’s geopolitics, the place of technology, the economic order and a variety of other disciplines from health to energy.”
(My opinion: I have been writing that globalists are transitioning the world into a world government by 2030 or sooner, and they are deliberately creating crises, food shortages, energy shortages, economic problems, etc., and the technology to bring it about. Some prophecy teachers also believe they will soon propose solutions that will give them more power and eventually enslave everyone on earth. This Israeli intelligence report confirms the opinion that a transition is taking place.)
Ten, concerning the division of Israel: on Dec. 19, 2022, it was reported that the new government of Israel will be installed in the next 2-3 days.
World leaders (including the UN, EU, and the Biden administration) are going out of their way to warn the new conservative Israeli government not to annex settlements or change the status quo on the Temple Mount, and more.
They want to divide Israel and Jerusalem, and they are pressuring Israel to agree to it.
The Bible clearly teaches that dividing Israel and Jerusalem will trigger the Battle of Armageddon (Joel 3:2).
Eleven, concerning corruption and election fraud: on Dec. 20, 2022, it was reported that the FBI paid twitter $3.4 million to censor stories the government did not like.
The FBI was illegally influencing the election by censoring and lying about posts such as Hunter Biden’s Laptop from Hell.
They had Biden’s laptop and knew the information was true but made up the story and lied about it being Russian disinformation.
The shadow government was using Twitter to determine who will hold office in the U.S. because world government is a goal of the U.S.
America is being weakened and betrayed from within.
(Note: They also lied about Pres. Trump and the Russian collusion story. I seem to remember that that lie cost the American taxpayers about $40 million. Congress should have already done something about it, but the Democrats have controlled all three branches of government, and some of them were colluding with the FBI. Trump got elected to “drain the swamp,” but he did not know how polluted it was, and he could not get it done.)
Twelve, concerning famine and food shortages: this week, a reader sent me a link to a video of Glenn Beck interviewing Carol Roth (author, TV pundit, radio host, and more).
Roth said the Netherlands is the second largest food producer in the world (second only to the U.S.).
Roth reminded viewers that those that control the food can control the people.
The government is deliberately putting farmers and ranchers out of business in the Netherlands, and Beck said he thinks this is “the biggest threat to all of us because it will lead to global starvation.”
Beck added that this is coming to the U.S. and Canada and that the WEF said, “We will redesign how we produce and consume food from the seed to the fork.”
Therefore, the government of Netherlands is cutting the use of fertilizer, limiting how many cows people can own, buying thousands of acres of farmland and taking it out of production, etc.
Deliberate food control, mass starvation, and population control is coming.
Canada is already reducing the amount of fertilizer farmers can use.
The U.S. is buying land out west, paying farmers to not farmland, and stopping farmers from grazing cattle on some federal land.
Here is a link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OpuEfvzDZb8
Thirteen, concerning world government: on Dec. 20, 2022, The New American posted an excellent article by William F. Jasper about the 2022 UN Biodiversity Conference in Montreal, Canada, on Dec. 7-19, 2022.
It was a regular meeting of climate change extremists who are determined to save Mother Earth (the planet) from natural disasters (rising sea levels, floods, droughts, wildfires, etc.) supposedly created by man’s pollution and excessive consumption.
Jasper reported that they agreed to four goals called the 30-by-30 (or 30X30) Initiative:
Jasper points out that the real objective is power for them to reset (transform) the world (and everyone on it) according to their agenda, morals, etc. (the agenda, morals, etc., of “Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”).
He reminded readers that Pres. Biden signed an Executive Order on Jan. 27, 2021, that commits the U.S. to conserve (not allow mining, farming, drilling for oil, etc.) at least 30% (perhaps more) of U.S. lands and waters by 2030.
Here is a link to Jasper’s extremely important report.
Finally, are you Rapture Ready?
If you want to be rapture ready and go to heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3). God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin-born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried, and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.
15 Facts Which Prove That A Massive Economic Meltdown Is Already Happening Right Now - by Michael Snyder - http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/15-facts-that-prove-that-a-massive-economic-meltdown-is-already-happening-right-now/
Economic conditions just keep getting worse. As we prepare to enter 2023, we find ourselves in a high inflation environment at the same time that economic activity is really slowing down. And just like we witnessed in 2008, employers are conducting mass layoffs as a horrifying housing crash sweeps across the nation. Those that have been waiting for the U.S. economy to implode can stop waiting, because an economic implosion has officially arrived. The following are 15 facts that prove that a massive economic meltdown is already happening right now…
#1 Existing home sales have now fallen for 10 consecutive months.
#2 Existing home sales are down 35.4 percent over the last 12 months. That is the largest year over year decline in existing home sales since the collapse of Lehman Brothers.
#3 Homebuilder sentiment has now dropped for 12 consecutive months.
#4 Home construction costs have risen more than 30 percent since the beginning of 2022.
#5 The number of single-family housing unit permits has fallen for nine months in a row.
#6 The Empire State Manufacturing Index has plunged “to a reading of negative 11.2 in December”. That figure was way, way below expectations.
#7 In November, we witnessed the largest decline in retail sales that we have seen all year long.
#8 Even the biggest names on Wall Street are starting to let workers go. In fact, it is being reported that Goldman Sachs will soon lay off approximately 4,000 employees.
#9 The Federal Reserve is admitting that the number of actual jobs in the United States has been overstated by over a million.
#10 U.S. job cuts were 417 percent higher in November than they were during the same month a year ago.
#11 A recent Wall Street Journal survey found that approximately two-thirds of all Americans expect the economy to get even worse next year.
#12 A newly released Bloomberg survey has discovered that 70 percent of U.S. economists believe that a recession is coming in 2023.
#13 Inflation continues to spiral wildly out of control. At this point, a head of lettuce now costs 11 dollars at one grocery store in California.
#14 Overall, vegetable prices in the United States are more than 80 percent higher than they were at this same time last year.
#15 Thanks to the rapidly rising cost of living, 63 percent of the U.S. population is now living paycheck to paycheck.
In a desperate attempt to get inflation under control, the Federal Reserve has been dramatically increasing interest rates.
Those interest rate hikes are what has caused the housing market to crash, but Fed officials insist that such short-term pain is necessary in order to tame inflation.
But meanwhile our politicians in Washington are busy creating more inflation by borrowing and spending money at a rate that is absolutely unprecedented in our entire history.
This week, an abominable 1.7 trillion dollar omnibus spending bill is being rammed through Congress, but not a single member of Congress has read it.
The bill is 4,155 pages long, and U.S. Senator Rand Paul just held a press briefing during which he wheeled it out on a trolley…
After the grossly bloated $1.7 trillion Omnibus spending bill advanced in the Senate by a vote of 70-25, GOP Senator Rand Paul held a press briefing during which he wheeled in the “abomination” on a trolley and demanded to know how anyone would be able to read it before the end of the week.
Paul, along with the only other dissenting Senate Republicans Mike Braun, Ron Johnson, Mike Lee, and Rick Scott highlighted how ludicrous the fast tracking of the bill has been.
Unfortunately, this absurd spending bill has broad support on both sides of the aisle, and that just shows how broken Washington has become.
Our system of government has failed time after time, and our politicians continue to spend money on some of the most ridiculous things imaginable.
The following examples that were pulled out of the 1.7 trillion dollar omnibus spending bill were discovered by the Heritage Foundation…
-$1.2 million for “LGBTQIA+ Pride Centers”
-$1.2 million for “services for DACA recipients” (aka helping illegal aliens with taxpayer funds) at San Diego Community College.
-$477k for the Equity Institute in RI to indoctrinate teachers with “antiracism virtual labs.”
-$1 million for Zora’s House in Ohio, a “coworking and community space” for “women and gender-expansive people of color.”
-$3 million for the American LGBTQ+ Museum in New York City.
-$3.6 million for a Michelle Obama Trail in Georgia.
-$750k for the for “LGBT and Gender Non-Conforming housing” in Albany, New York.
-$856k for the “LGBT Center” in New York.
And have you noticed that our politicians often prefer to push these types of bills through just before major holidays when hardly anyone is paying attention?
No matter who we send to Washington, the story remains the same.
As long as our politicians are borrowing and spending trillions of dollars that we do not have, Fed officials won’t be able to win their war against inflation.
The Fed can send interest rates into the stratosphere, but inflation will continue to remain high because our politicians insist on showering the nation with giant mountains of cash.
We should all be deeply, deeply offended by what is happening, but most Americans simply do not know enough to care.
But once economic conditions get even worse than they were in 2008 and 2009, the majority of the U.S. population will become extremely angry.
Of course things could have turned out much differently if we had made better decisions during the years leading up to this crisis.
Unfortunately, we have run out of time to change course, and that means that a tremendous amount of pain is ahead for all of us.

Rage Against Jesus And His People — The Ominous Trend Of 2022 – By Hal Lindsey - https://harbingersdaily.com/rage-against-jesus-and-his-people-the-ominous-trend-of-2022/
By the end of 2022, eight billion people lived on the earth. They were besieged by a series of plagues, droughts, false prophets, war, the threat of greater war, hatred, rage, theft, and violence. The eight billion were fragmented in a variety of ways — according to their nations, level of income, race, gender, various understandings of gender and human sexuality, along with religion or the lack thereof.
Change became overwhelming to most of the eight billion. For those over 40, it was almost unfathomable that by the end of 2022, not even half the students at Cambridge University identified as heterosexual.
In 2022, deception ruled the day. Trust in government, educational institutions, and the news media had been largely obliterated. Trust in health officials and doctors had become severely damaged. In such an environment, many found it increasingly difficult to maintain friendships. Even families had begun to crumble. When deception rules, relationships die, and loneliness begins to blanket lives.
By the end of 2022, people were offended by almost everything. A public library in Massachusetts refused to put up a Christmas tree. It purportedly made some people “uncomfortable.” The library celebrated Hanukkah, Kwanza, and pride month, yet the powers-that-be deemed Christmas offensive.
After a public outcry, they changed their position and put up the traditional tree. But it raises a huge question. Why would a Christmas tree be considered offensive? Such trees are ubiquitous during the month of December. So, what is the offense? The word Christmas begins with Christ, and an increasing number of people are offended by any reference to Him.
A member of the town’s human rights commission wrote on Facebook, “You – who claim to believe in Christ and Christmas… are the least gracious, most hateful, most disgusting trash in the world…. Is this what you think your magic sky daddy wants?”
She said a lot more than that, most of which I don’t care to quote. I’m sure her profanity-riddled rant against God and Christians came partly because of terrible things people were saying about the town and library. There are also reports of library employees being bullied. That should not happen, and it is certainly not Christian. Later, the woman resigned from the human rights commission. But she represents another ominous trend as we near the end of 2022. That trend is rage against Jesus and His people.
For most Americans, it feels like we left Bedford Falls somewhere along the line, and we entered Pottersville. It feels unreal. Many dismiss it as society simply going through another phase. But these phases are leading to darker and darker places.
Christians can look forward to 2023 with renewed hope, but not because the world is getting better. It is not.
More than ever before, it should be obvious that our hope is not in the mechanisms and programs of this world. It is in Christ alone.
Power of God’s Control – Terry James - https://terryjamesprophecyline.com/2022/12/25/power-of-gods-control/
Going back just a way in my personal history, I’ll divulge my one-time wanting more than anything to be a cape-wearing, soaring superhero. In that regard, there’s a photograph somewhere in the family archive of myself, Pappy, and David all wearing capes (towels). All three of us were about 6, I think—the age when I was saved in the Seventh Street Tabernacle Church on the corner of Seventh and Derby in Pekin, Illinois.
Superman was the rage in the “funny books” (my sons mock me now for using that term for comic books). We studied the Man of Steel and wanted more than anything to fly and perform super feats of strength. Sometimes it got us in trouble –like when we jumped from places higher than were safe for mere mortals with towels affixed around necks.
So Pappy, David, and I proved that human beings’ desire for supernatural powers must begin early in life. But what we are witnessing today is not mere child’s play. The determination has now reached the Tower of Babel level. People are determined to do things that caused the Lord God of Heaven to say the following:
And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. (Genesis 1:6)
Following the Great Flood of Noah’s time, people began to multiply, and the populations grew while they moved onto the plains of Shinar. They built their cities and erected the ziggurat we call the Tower of Babel.
According to the Lord’s observation, they were apparently doing things that exhibited Lucifer’s ambitions to be God-like. The Lord, likely because they were created in His image and could achieve their ignoble ambitions, thus said: “Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech” (Genesis 11:7).
It was done, and the people, unable to communicate, scattered about the then-known earth, forming various languages, cultures, etc. God had to intervene, else rebellion would again reach antediluvian level, bringing about the Lord’s judgment and the death of most all upon the planet.
Some biblical scholars believe these post-Flood generations had tapped into dark powers from the demonic dimension and were beginning to achieve breakthroughs that were evil, not productive toward human progression God wanted for mankind.
We come up to the Lord Jesus’ words: “But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be” (Matthew 24: 37).
Ladies and gentlemen, the evidence indicates that we have arrived there. We must certainly be in times like when God had to scatter the tower-builders. Humanity’s lust for God-like power manifests each and every hour of the ongoing news cycles. It is neither childlike nor mere noble aspiration that confronts us with wicked enticement to be God-like. Demonic influence more and more becomes stark reality to those with spiritual discernment.
Maybe the most egregious example of the neo-Babel tower-builders’ attempts at usurping God’s throne is found within the ambitious planning of Karl Schwab’s World Economic Forum (WEF). The following, I think, presents the indictment framing Jesus’ words “as it was in the days of Noah.”
People’s desires to expand their human capabilities will give globalists an instrument of total control over our lives.
Globalists have big dreams: to have godlike power over human beings, their reproduction, and their genetic code. Under their new buzzwords “human upgrade” or “body tuning,” they are selling their plans of providing people with chips for everyday use. With their desire to be able to rule over life, they don’t even stop at unborn children: You even want to tinker with babies’ genetic prerequisites in the womb…
As Xiao Liu wrote on the World Economic Forum (WEF) website in June 2020, “We’re entering the era of the “Internet of Bodies”: collecting our physical data via a range of devices that can be implanted, swallowed or worn.”
Apple is already boasting of a new implant in the clinical trial phase, which will grant users the ability to use their brains to control their iPhone or iPad with their thoughts. In addition, app stores are already being dreamed up for the future brain chips.
Transhumanistic God Playing
WEF advisor and transhumanism thought leader Yuval Noah Harari even goes one step further. He dreams of an “anti-virus program for the mind” to drive out negative – and probably also critical – thoughts from people. Then, in the future, Harari believes, “bioengineers will take the old Sapiens body, and intentionally rewrite its genetic code, rewire its brain circuits, alter its biochemical balance, and even grow entirely new limbs. They will thereby create new godlings, who might be as different from us Sapiens as we are different from Homo erectus.” So basically, in less than half a century, Cyborgs will replace humanity.
In this world of machine-made elite gods, conventional, ordinary people without such “upgrades” only appear as a herd of cattle to be controlled and ruled over. Even human reproduction is to be controlled; the beautiful and rich can choose their desired children from the test tube. In any case, Harari doesn’t think much of humans. As he explains, there is no scientific evidence that sapiens, unlike pigs, have a soul. Transhumanists want to overcome humanity and cement their power. Sadly, people’s desires to expand their human capabilities will give globalists an instrument of total control over our lives. (“Transhumanism Horror: Elites Want to Genetically Alter Children in the Womb, High-Bred Globalist Kids,” Rapture Ready News, December 16, 2022)
Getting back to Pappy, David, and my 6-year-old self, it seems our own desire for superpowers were something the globalist masters believe mankind can now achieve.
WEF agenda contributor Kathleen Phillips, in a blog post titled, “Augmented tech can change the way we live,” writes:
Superheroes have been dominating big and small screens for a while, but there’s a subtle change happening. Many children expect to develop superpowers themselves. These expectations may sound unattainable, but we’re already making the first strides towards an “augmented society.””, but only with the right support and vision.
The support the globalist masters need is that which will be given by the Antichrist regime during the Tribulation.
Let us be thankful that it is God, not the minions from the dark dimension, who has ultimate power and control over things to come. He tells us in His Holy Word the one and only way to be kept from that hour of absolute wickedness that is about to burst upon this rebellious earth –thus to be kept from His judgment and wrath.
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:9–10)
Daily Jot: The Farm Chronicles: The Great Christmas Fire - Bill Wilson – www.dailyjot.com
As many of you know, I grew up on our family farm in Northeastern Ohio. It was part of a land grant in payment to my grandfather seven generations back for fighting in the Revolutionary War. At the time my grandfather sent two of his sons to claim the land, it was wilderness, the most western part of the new America, and most certainly Indian country. They had to carve out their inheritance while defending themselves and learning how to farm fertile, but rather low land. The house they built was a sturdy two room structure with a loft above, with two inch planks pegged together as walls and large beams, also pegged together, held the house up over the crude cellar. The house was added on to in 1840.
The entire farm was handed down from Wilson to Wilson from around 1800 till even today, when my son will take over the property. We all were raised on this farm since then. When my father went on to be with the Lord in 1989, my mother continued living at the farm until she was unable to do so and moved in to our Maryland home. During those times before, we would pack up the family and “go home” for Christmas. Sometimes, my mother didn’t make the best decisions at Christmas time, especially since it was my dad’s birthday, and the anniversary of his death was just a few days after my mother’s birthday, also in December. Mother, however, never wanted to admit that her decisions might not be the best.
We were finished opening presents and all the paper from the gifts was stuffed into a couple of trash bags. There was no garbage pick up at the farm. We burned everything in an old sawed-off 50 gallon drum out about 30 feet from the milk house. Now this drum was old and had charred and rusted down to about half its height. On this Christmas morning, the wind was blowing pretty hard and there was no snow on the ground. I protested that it was not a good idea to burn these wrappings, but mom insisted–she was a neat-kin to the max and didn’t want the trash in her house another second. So I reluctantly complied. I set the wrappings on fire and soon they blew all over the pasture, setting tiny fires as they landed.
These tiny fires grew into bigger fires and soon about half an acre of pasture was on fire with the wind shifting toward the barns. I was fighting the fire with a shovel and an old gunny sack while everyone else was in the house enjoying the morning, unaware of the fiasco outside. I finally prevailed over the fire. I came in the house with smoky clothes, smudges on my face, arms and hands, and my eyebrows were singed. My mother calmly sat across the kitchen table and without any hesitation said, “You shouldn’t have burned that trash with that wind blowing like it was.” Ephesians 6:2,3 says, “Honor thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.” You can, if you survive the fires <wink>.
Daily Devotion: The Race We Must Finish - by Greg Laurie – www.harvest.org
These things happened to them as examples for us. They were written down to warn us who live at the end of the age. —1 Corinthians 10:11
https://harvest.org/resources/devotion/the-race-we-must-finish/ - Listen
Of the two to three million Israelites who left Egypt with Moses, only two of the original adults made it to the Promised Land. What caused them to finish well while so many others got lost in the wilderness?
Idolatry was one of the pitfalls of the Israelites who got lost in the wilderness after leaving Egypt. At the root of their problems was a lack of relationship with God, a lack of intimacy with Him. Interestingly, their first idol was Moses. When he was away receiving the commandments of God, they turned to worship a golden calf. They remade God in their image, rationalizing their blatant idol worship by saying it was a feast to the Lord.
People do the same thing today. They give God a makeover, looking to conform Him to our perverse society instead of the other way around. But once we lose that set of absolutes in our lives, all kinds of problems will develop.
Most people today who have fallen away from the Lord and into various problems and sins would be able to trace this to a point in their lives when they began to let go of the Lord. They were no longer walking as closely with Him as they should have been.
The same thing happened to the Israelites. Because God was not on the throne of their hearts and lives, they needed something or someone to take His place.
Then they tested God and complained. They exploited His goodness, pushed Him to the limit, and griped about His provision. As a result, they never made it to what God had prepared for them. They had so much potential and possibility, yet it never came to fruition in their lives.
The Christian life is not a sprint; it’s a long-distance run. We are in it for the long haul. So we need to pace ourselves and persevere.

Our Prayer for You- "Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, men will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else." 2 Corinthians 9:10-13
