Just a Matter of Time - By Daymond Duck - https://www.raptureready.com/2022/12/17/just-a-matter-of-time-by-daymond-duck-4/
Concerning peace in the Middle East: on Dec. 8, 2022, several high-level officials met at the First Annual Abraham Accords Global Leadership Summit in Rome.
Danny Danon, Israel’s former ambassador to the UN, said:
Imam Mohammad Tawhidi, vice-pres. of The Global Imams Council, told the Jerusalem Post he believes Danon’s assessment about Saudi Arabia is correct.
Summit officials signed a document called the Abraham Values Pledge, which is an agreement to adhere to: tolerance, coexistence and diversity; religion and family; and economic peace.
I am not saying the Abraham Accords will be the covenant of peace that will be confirmed by the Antichrist and mark the beginning of the Tribulation Period, but the Accords are a major step in that direction, and a worthless covenant of peace is just a matter of time. (Despite the Abraham Accords, there are many problems, and there are prophesied wars that still must be fulfilled.)
Nevertheless, history is nearing:
And all of the signs are beginning to come to pass now (Luke 21:28).
Here are more reasons to believe that a worthless covenant of peace is just a matter of time.
One, concerning Saudi Arabia joining the Abraham Accords: on Dec. 8, 2022, it was reported that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman has given the U.S. three conditions for normalizing ties with Israel:
Concerning the Crown Prince’s requirements: in the past, Saudi Arabia has said it would not join the Abraham Accords until the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is settled.
Some commentators say it looks like the Crown Prince has dropped that requirement.
A Saudi official recently said Saudi Arabia is looking to normalize relations with Israel, “but it will take more time.”
Two, concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog: in the latter years and latter days, Russia, Iran, and Turkey will join forces, move through Syria, and attack Israel.
On Dec. 9, 2022, it was reported that the relationship between Russia and Iran has reached an “unprecedented level.”
Russia needs weapons (especially drones) for its war in Ukraine, and Iran needs modern weapons (fighter jets, helicopters, air defense systems), technical support, and training to produce and use more advanced weapons.
The two nations are growing closer together by the day, and the U.S. is saying Russia and Iran are becoming “a full-fledged defense partnership.”
An interesting aspect about this is that God told Gog to be a guard unto her allies in the Battle of Gog and Magog (Ezek. 38:7).
(More: Turkey’s Pres. Erdogan recently said he is determined to launch a land operation at Turkey’s convenience to take more territory from the Kurds in northern Syria.)
(More: No weapon that is formed against Israel shall prosper; Isa. 54:17.)
Three, concerning corruption in the White House, Dept. of Justice, and FBI: Bill Wilson (Senior Analyst for Koenig World Watch Daily) recently wrote, “FBI agent Elvis Chan, in deposition, revealed that the FBI ordered Twitter to censor the Hunter Biden laptop story, and [current] Twitter owner Elon Musk said Twitter was also ordered by the Biden presidential campaign to censor the story.”
Let’s not forget that 51 intel agents (including at least two from the Obama administration, former CIA Directors James Clapper and John Brennan) signed a letter that said the Hunter Laptop information was wrong (Russian disinformation).
These intel agents put their signatures on a false document, sent it out, and they are the ones that Twitter should have censored.
(My opinion: The shadow government illegally ordered Twitter to censor free speech in the U.S. to cover for the Biden crime cartel because Joe supports the New World Order and is willing to surrender America’s sovereignty to a world government. With the shadow government working to destroy the sovereignty of America, it is not likely that America will ever be great again. The decline of America is a major fulfillment of Bible prophecy.)
(More: On Dec. 12, 2022, it was reported that a high-ranking Twitter official has been meeting weekly for several months with members of the FBI, the Dept. of Homeland Security, and Office of the Director of National Intelligence.)
Four, concerning corruption in Washington and all over the world: on Dec. 6, 2022, it was reported that Democrat megadonor, George Soros, has ties to more than 250 media organizations around the world.
Soros uses these ties to support corrupt politicians, change the traditions, culture and values of nations, elect officials that refuse to prosecute crime, etc., and (because of his media contacts and large contributions to politicians) nothing is ever done to stop him.
(More: On Dec. 11, 2022, it was reported that released internal Twitter documents show that Michelle Obama called for Pres. Trump to be permanently banned. George Soros was a major contributor to Barack Obama’s election campaigns.)
Five, concerning election corruption: on Dec. 9, 2022, it was reported that Kari Lake has filed a 70-page lawsuit claiming hundreds of thousands of illegal votes were counted in the Arizona governor’s election and is asking the court to throw out the results.
Lake is up against Kati Hobbs, who oversaw the election and declared herself the winner.
(More: On Dec. 10, 2022, it was reported that released Twitter e-mails verify collusion between Hobbs and Twitter staffers to censor conservatives. One e-mail shows that an unidentified employee at the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security got Twitter to censor some anti-Hobbs tweets. It is my understanding that it is illegal for employees of the federal government to use their position to interfere in an election.)
(More: On Dec. 12, 2022, it was reported that Elon Musk said Sam Bankman-Fried’s FTX empire funneled more than $1 billion to Democrats before FTX imploded; about $40 million in stolen investor money can be accounted for, but what happened to about $960 million is a mystery.)
(Note: On Dec. 12, 2022, it was reported that Sam Bankman-Fried has been arrested. On Dec. 14, 2022, it was reported that he is facing wire fraud, securities fraud, money laundering, and campaign finance violations. Notice that this man who was funneling stolen money to Democrats is facing campaign finance violations. I may have missed it, but I have not seen one word about any Democrats returning any of the stolen money.)
Six, concerning the fact that Biden calls himself a good Catholic (he makes himself willingly ignorant of Scripture or doesn’t believe it): on Dec. 13, 2022, he signed the falsely named “Respect for Marriage Act” into law (a bill that wipes out the “Defense of Marriage Act” that allowed states to define marriage as between a man and a woman).
39 House Republicans and 12 Senate Republicans joined the Democrats in a rejection of God’s definition of marriage and a vote to redefine it.
Biden celebrated his rejection of God’s Word with an elaborate taxpayer-funded signing ceremony at the White House in the presence of more than 5,000 people, including drag queens (men dressed as women), musicians, and others.
God will have the final say on this during the Tribulation Period.
Seven, concerning an economic collapse: on Dec. 14, 2022, it was reported:
Eight, concerning world government: on Dec. 13, 2022, The Defender posted an article by Dr. Joseph Mercola which said (in my words for the sake of brevity)…
Here is a link to the article.
Nine, concerning world government: on Dec. 5, 2022, it was announced that the next World Economic Forum meeting will be Jan. 16-20, 2023.
It will be an invite-only meeting of about 2,500 globalists.
Here are 5 topics they intend to discuss:
I remind everyone that prophecy teachers have long said globalists plan to create problems or crises (food shortages, energy shortages, economic problems, etc.) and then propose solutions to solve them that will destroy freedom and establish a world government.
Here are some of the solutions (eat bugs and worms, drive electric vehicles, digital currency, government to own everything, etc.).
Ten, concerning BlackRock and world government:
Tom Donilon, chairman of BlackRock’s Investment Institute, said, “We’re in a New World Order of geopolitical fragmentation.”
Donilon said, “the world is fragmenting into power blocks” (the U.S., Russia, China, etc.).
This is the point: The world will eventually be divided into ten power blocks, and this is beginning to shape up now.
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.
Rethinking the Lie – Terry James - https://terryjamesprophecyline.com/2022/12/19/rethinking-the-lie/
I will ask you to indulge me just a bit while I think on the great lie that is prophesied for the time of Tribulation.
Perhaps it’s again the novelist within me struggling to burst forth, but I rather believe the impression to address the much-gone-over topic goes beyond any mere desire I have to create fiction.
Nonetheless, this is a theory; it’s not based on exactly what’s entailed in that great “lie” scheduled to deceive most of the world’s population.
One thing is sure: Just within the past few years, we’ve endured deception and lies of cataclysmic consequences for the future of our nation and the world. These lies are spawned by the father of lies, Satan, and are setting the stage for prophetic fulfillment that’s on the brink of engulfing all who will be left behind when the next great intervention into human history by God takes place.
To begin considering all of this, here is the prophetic lie that will be the culmination, I believe, of all lies Lucifer has foisted upon humanity.
And then shall that wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thessalonians 2:8–12)
We pre-Tribbers believe this is saying Antichrist will be “revealed” after the disappearance of millions of believers. There should be no doubt by anyone—believer or not—that such a massive vanishing of people before the eyes of others would cause unprecedented panic. The world would, at least temporarily, go nearly insane.
I believe when all children go to Christ at the Rapture, the magnitude of that panic will be beyond anything we can fully anticipate. Even children at conception will be missing. The sheer terror almost certainly produced by such an occurrence is almost unfathomable.
So the powers that be—the human minions, backed by the demonic beings of Ephesians 6:12—will have to produce answers to quell the terror that will grow from that event.
Here is a scenario-type supposition I believe might hold at least a degree of possibility. Actually, I base my thinking on two elements that are becoming more prevalent in the news at this very hour.
The first is a proven compliance-assured matter, already validated as a winner for the globalists who want a one-world government. The second involves an answer to what that great lie of 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 might well be, long speculated by some. I’m pondering whether some combination of the two could be at the heart of the lie Satan will put forth to explain what happened to all those who suddenly vanished.
The First Element
I believe that most will agree that things changed perceptibly with the onslaught of the so-called pandemic near the beginning of 2020.
There eventuated, and in short order, an almost complete worldwide lockdown.
There had never been anything like it in history. No government, no dictator, had ever achieved such a global shutdown of human activity and redirection toward—demand for—compliance. We were to take the vaccine against the COVID–or else…or else we would lose our right to travel and congregate, lose our jobs and many other rights. At least that was the threat.
The Second Element
There is a ramped-up interest in extraterrestrial activity. The UFO controversy isn’t so controversial these days.
Now the governments—the US and others—have acknowledged that extraterrestrial evidence exists, and such information is continually forthcoming as governments release what much of the populace has thought about the probability of the presence of other life on other planets. This opens the door to helping foment the great delusion, once the disappearance of millions happens.
We have wondered whether the powers that be will say that those who have disappeared have been taken from the earth by the “space brothers.”
I offer two items of interest in thinking on how the two elements mentioned above might play into Antichrist and his Ephesians 6: 12 minions foisting the lie God’s Word predicts.
The First Element
The World Bank has created a global pandemic fund, the largest fund in its history. At the same time, preparations to implement the World Health Organization’s Pandemic Treaty marches forward.
We recently published an article about G-20 leaders calling for the establishment of global vaccine passports. In it, we included remarks by Indonesian Health Minister Budi Gunadi Sadikin on 13 November, from Day 1 of B20 Indonesia 2022. “G20 country has agreed to have this digital certificate using WHO standard,” Sadikin said.
Earlier in his remarks, he mentioned that the global pandemic fund is the largest fund the World Bank has ever created and it will increase in the next 5-10 years. (“Preparations to implement WHO’s Pandemic Treaty march forward as World Bank creates the largest fund ever for global pandemics,” Rhoda Wilson, December 4, 2022, Expose-News.com)
The Second Element
We’re unprepared for when E.T. reaches out to us. A team of experts is determined to change that with the first new alien “contact” protocol in 35 years.
If extraterrestrial life sent us a message tomorrow, how would humanity respond? According to researchers, we don’t know yet — and that’s a problem.
That’s why, for the first time in 35 years, a team of policy experts and scientists have united to establish a set of alien-contact protocols for the entire world to follow in the event of a sudden encounter with E.T. (“Scientists are working on an official ‘alien contact protocol’ for when ET phones Earth,” Isobel Whitcomb, Live Science, November 5, 2022)
Everywhere we look, we see the stage being set for fulfillment of prophecy during the Tribulation. I’m just pondering whether the two items above might be combined to produce one of those stage-setting foreshadowings.
People are already conditioned for being controlled by governmental masters in the matter of a future pandemic that might be promoted as one even deadlier than the one that produced worldwide panic and unprecedented compliance. Many have been preconditioned to believe we will one day be visited by other beings from somewhere out there.
When millions vanish, might global leaders, under Antichrist, say it was a strange virus or microbe that caused the dissolving of flesh and bone? Will they say someone from “out there” is descending to help the people of planet earth, who now must accept a “666” vaccination/remedy?
Too fantastic, you say? Well, we believe Jesus will call us and we will vanish from earth in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, don’t we?
Can’t get more fantastic than that! But in the case of Rapture, it’s not a scenario; it’s an absolute promise from God Himself!
Here’s how to make sure you go to Jesus when He calls in that fantastic instant.
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)

What Is Happening To Our Wealthiest Cities Clearly Demonstrates America’s Rapid Decline - by Michael Snyder - http://endoftheamericandream.com/what-is-happening-to-our-wealthiest-cities-clearly-demonstrates-americas-rapid-decline/
The largest cities in the United States are becoming cesspools of crime, drugs, violence and homelessness, and no matter what “solutions” our politicians come up with the problems just continue to get even worse. Sadly, this is even happening in the wealthiest cities in the whole country. New York City is the financial capital of the entire globe, and over the past two decades San Francisco has been swimming in giant mountains of tech industry money. But today the streets of both cities look like something out of a post-apocalyptic horror movie. If things are this bad while economic conditions are still relatively stable, what will those streets look like two years from now when economic conditions are far worse?
New York City has seen some pretty rough times in the past, but the Big Apple has never had as many homeless people sleeping in shelters than it does right now…
New York City’s homeless problem does not appear to be getting any better.
According to the Coalition for the Homeless, the numbers have actually hit an all-time high. They claim the average number of people sleeping in a shelter every night climbed to nearly 66,000 in October.
It is far more preferable to sleep in a shelter than it is to sleep in the streets, because violence in NYC has escalated to very frightening levels…
Fatal stabbings and slashings are up an alarming 37% in the Big Apple this year.
The NYPD has logged 96 blade-involved killings so far in 2022, compared with 70 for the same period in 2021, according to department stats obtained by The Post.
Stabbings and slashings overall are up 10% in 2022, with 4,344 compared to 3,954 last year, the stats show.
Meanwhile, the downward spiral that we are witnessing in San Francisco is incredibly alarming.
I recently watched footage of what downtown San Francisco currently looks like, and afterwards I was truly at a loss for words.
Have things really gotten this bad?
Part of the problem is that the office buildings downtown are much less occupied these days thanks to the “work at home revolution” that began during the early stages of the pandemic…
Today San Francisco has what is perhaps the most deserted major downtown in America. On any given week, office buildings are at about 40 percent of their prepandemic occupancy, while the vacancy rate has jumped to 24 percent from 5 percent since 2019.
Another major factor is drug addiction. Right now we are witnessing the worst drug crisis in the history of the United States, and it just keeps intensifying every year.
In fact, the number of drug overdose deaths among our teens actually “doubled from 2019 to 2021”…
Drug overdose deaths among US teens doubled from 2019 to 2021 – even as use of illicit substances declined – as fentanyl fueled a nationwide crisis.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported today that teenage overdoses increased 109 percent over the two years. Deaths caused by fentanyl alone increased 182 percent.
Once upon a time, the United States was such a lovely place to be.
But now our communities are degenerating into rapidly decaying hellholes and our streets are filled with violent predators.
Have you heard about a new trend called “jugging”?
From coast to coast, predators are patiently watching potential victims and they strike as “they juggle smartphones and car keys in parking lots or at home”…
A new crime trend is targeting the distracted and the elderly, with police warning about it from Alabama to California.
The big picture: Jugging involves thieves staking out unsuspecting victims at banks or retail stores before following and robbing them while they juggle smartphones and car keys in parking lots or at home.
But of course not all predators will be satisfied with just robbing you.
When a 20-year-old pregnant woman was taken in by a 36-year-old man after being kicked out of her home, she was initially relieved to have a place to stay.
But that sense of relief didn’t last long…
A 20-year-old pregnant woman was kicked out of her house around Thanksgiving. Her luck appeared to be make a holiday rebound when a stranger offered her a warm meal and a place to stay. However, this was anything but charity.
Michael Barajas, 36, is accused of subjecting the young woman to unimaginable depravities over the course of three weeks.
It turns out that this particular predator actually had his teeth filed down into sharp points.
He literally looks like he is insane, and Genesee County Sheriff Chris Swanson is describing him as “a monster”…
According to the Tri-County Times, Barajas has been charged with human trafficking, kidnapping, first-degree criminal sexual conduct, possession of methamphetamine, assault with a dangerous weapon, assault with intent to do great bodily harm, and felony possession of a firearm.
“This guy is a monster,” said Swanson. “If you look at the teeth that are filed down and the threats of ripping out a throat, I will say no more.”
Anyone with any sense never would have gone with him.
But other predators can look completely innocent.
For example, one 33-year-old man recently thought that he was pulling over to help a woman that was in trouble on the side of the road.
But once he got out of his vehicle, two men jumped out from their hiding spots and viciously attacked him…
Shortly before 11 p.m. on Wednesday, an unnamed 33-year-old man was driving along near the intersection of Hutchinson Road and South George Washington Boulevard, a rather rural area just outside Yuba City, about 40 miles north of Sacramento, when he spotted a woman standing near a black SUV on the side of the road. She flagged the man down, indicating that she was in some kind of distress.
The man pulled over and exited his vehicle to see how he could help. However, once he left his vehicle, two seemingly armed men jumped out of the woman’s SUV. One appeared to have a gun, the other had a knife. Under threat of violence, they zip-tied the driver’s legs together and stole his wallet and car keys. The three con artists then poured gasoline all over the victim and lit him on fire before they left, driving away in their own SUV and taking the victim’s car too.
This is what our country has become.
We are rapidly evolving into a “Mad Max society”, and that is because we have rejected the values that this nation was founded upon.
And if we stay on the path that we are currently on, things are only going to get worse.
Ignoring what is happening is not going to make it go away.
Social decay is systematically eating away at the foundations of our civilization, and at this point America’s decline is really starting to accelerate.
This Newborn Laying In A Box For Feeding Cows, Created The World - By Hal Lindsey - https://harbingersdaily.com/this-newborn-laying-in-a-box-for-feeding-cows-created-the-world/
It’s all true — the angels singing from the heavens, shepherds watching over their flocks by night, the manger, the virgin mother, and the birth of the Child. The Christ Child, the One prophesied from ancient days, was born that night. One of His names is Emmanuel, meaning, “God with us.”
The first chapter of the Gospel of John calls Him “the Word.” The first four verses say, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.”
Do you see it? This child, this newborn that lay in a box for feeding cows, created the world. He was, and He is, God. And at the same time, He was and is with God. That’s the mystery of the Trinity — one God in three Persons — the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God the Son entered our world, not in a spaceship, but the way we enter our world, by means of a mother.
The human dilemma is that we stand before a perfectly holy God, and we are sinners. We like to say we are “only human.” But He was human, too — a human with a different nature. He was tempted just as we are, “yet without sin” (Hebrews 4:15). He told us to be as “perfect” as God the Father, but what human can achieve that level of perfection? The answer is the Human who is also God.
Here was God in the flesh fulfilling all righteousness. Then, on the cross, Jesus, the One who knew no sin, took our sin upon Himself so that we could become the very righteousness of God in Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:21)
And that’s why we celebrate. It’s why we give gifts and put colorful lights on houses and trees. His birth, life, death, burial, and resurrection are the reasons why we sing carols and eat feasts. He purchased our redemption. Let us rejoice!
For some, Christmas seems dark. Pain, loneliness, and loss can feel worse against a backdrop of celebration. But the real meaning of Christmas shines even in the deepest gloom. Christ, our Deliverer, has come. Later, He will come again and complete the job of redeeming the earth. But the heaviest lifting of all — our salvation — has already been paid for.
Of all the gifts you have ever received, this one is infinitely bigger and better and brighter than all the rest. God gave His son. There are many great Christmas verses throughout the Bible. But for me, one says it best. It emphasizes God’s gift to the world and to each of us as individuals. We find it in John 3:16.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Daily Jot: Finally Wising Up - Bill Wilson – www.dailyjot.com
A recent Kaiser Family Foundation poll may indicate that Americans are finally wising up about the government propaganda over the COVID 19 shot. Against the backdrop of the obvious ongoing government claims that the shot is safe and effective, The KFF December Monitor found that about four in ten (44%) say they do not think they need the updated booster and about a third (37%) say they do not think the benefit is worth it. About a third (36%) say they have been too busy or have not had the time to get it, while about one in four (23%) say they have not gotten the updated booster because they had bad side effects from a previous COVID-19 vaccine dose.
There is also a political divide. Republicans are more likely to refuse the shot than Democrats. KFF noted: “at least six in ten vaccinated Republicans or Republican leaning independents who have not yet gotten the updated booster say they haven’t done so because they don’t think they need it (64%) or do not think the benefit is worth it (61%)… Democrats are three times as likely as Republicans to report having already gotten the updated COVID-19 booster (38% vs. 12%). Notably, about three in ten Republicans say they will only get the updated booster if they are required to do so (12%) or say they will “definitely not” get the new COVID-19 booster dose (18%). A further 37% of Republicans are unvaccinated or only partially vaccinated and therefore not eligible for the new updated COVID-19 booster dose.”
Meanwhile, an FDA study “Surveillance of COVID-19 vaccine safety among elderly persons aged 65 years and older” triggered an early warning threshold of risk for pulmonary embolism. Also showing up as risks, but not triggering an early warning system were acute myocardial infarction, disseminated intravascular coagulation, and immune thrombocytopenia. Despite these results, FDA discounted the risks, saying, “Because an early warning system does not prove that the vaccines cause these outcomes, more robust epidemiologic studies with adjustment for confounding, including age and nursing home residency, are underway to further evaluate these signals.FDA strongly believes the potential benefits of COVID-19 vaccination outweigh the potential risks of COVID-19 infection.”
In other words, FDA is sticking to its political position even though the science raises red flags on blood clots and heart issues. Meanwhile, numerous studies are indicating the shots cause myocarditis, pericarditis, and blood clots that lead to strokes and death. Americans appear to be wising up, even though the government propaganda is steadfast. The divide between Democrats and Republicans extends to the amount of trust in following the government over discernment of the science. Proverbs 10:14 says, “Wise men lay up knowledge, but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.” To ignore the science after accusing others of ignoring the science, then continue to repeat the “safe and effective” mantra, will lead to destruction. It’s time to wise up.
Daily Devotion: God Is Paying Attention - by Greg Laurie – www.harvest.org
‘Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,’ which is translated, ‘God with us.’ —Matthew 1:23
I can’t think of a time of year when it’s easier to lose God than at Christmastime.
In many of the Christmas specials we watch on television and the songs people perform, there’s no mention of Jesus. I honestly think many of us know the Dickens story “A Christmas Carol” more than the story of Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus.
It’s possible to lose God in this season. Of course, we can’t really lose God, but we can lose sight of Him. However, He never loses sight of us. He’s constantly thinking about us. We see this exemplified in the blessing God gave the priests to pronounce over the people of Israel: “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace” (Numbers 6:24–26 NKJV).
In the original language, the phrase “the Lord lift up His countenance upon you” means “to look, see, and pay full attention.”
We don’t pay as much attention to each other as we used to. The reason for this is the existence of smartphones. People go out to dinner and spend most of the time staring at their devices. Or they’re out walking their dogs and looking at their phones.
Researchers have found that we have a generation of people who prefer texting to talking. Thus, many of these people might not understand social cues, such as making eye contact or nodding in affirmation when someone’s speaking to them.
That’s not true of God. When we’re talking, God’s listening. He’s taking in every word that we say. He’s very interested. The essential message of Christmas is Immanuel, God with us. We may lose sight of God, but He never loses sight of us.
