The Hour is Late - By Daymond Duck - https://www.raptureready.com/2021/12/25/the-hour-is-late-by-daymond-duck/
Have you noticed that many pastors and church members have no trouble believing that God allowed Assyria to destroy the Northern Kingdom of Israel, He allowed Babylon to destroy the Southern Kingdom of Judah, and He allowed the Roman Empire to destroy the restored nation of Israel?
It is easy for some pastors and church members to admit that the Jews abandoned God, they stopped keeping His Commandments, they started worshipping idols, they started sacrificing their children, etc., so He allowed their enemies to destroy their nation.
But it is difficult for some pastors and church members to admit that God would destroy America or send the Tribulation Period upon the whole world for abandoning Him in our generation.
Some may admit that God’s judgment could fall many years from now, but they refuse to admit that God’s judgment could fall at any moment.
Today, world leaders openly admit that they are planning to establish the New World Order (a world government and world religion) by 2030 or sooner.
Their world religion (called the Global Ethic) ignores the existence of Jehovah and Jesus (the NWO will be led by the Antichrist, a man who will be against Christ, and he will be supported by the False Prophet, a fake that will speak like Satan.).
It is an official, public abandonment of God and Jesus by 2030 or sooner.
In times past, nations have abandoned God, but this will be the first time America and the whole world have officially and publicly abandoned God at the same time.
Godless globalists are even boasting about The Great Reset, the fundamental transformation of America and the fundamental transformation of the world.
The current president of the U.S. has even promised to make it happen.
They are clearly rejecting what the Bible says about Jesus being the only way to be saved, the Ten Commandments, dividing Israel, abortion, same-sex marriage, etc.
If God’s judgment fell upon the Jews for abandoning Him in Old Testament times, why wouldn’t this God that never changes let His judgment fall upon America and the world for abandoning Him?
If this is going to happen by 2030 or sooner, the hour is late.
Here are some stories that seem to have prophetic significance.
One, concerning possible corruption: on Dec. 13, 2021, it was reported that Business Insider Magazine examined the financial disclosure records of 9,000 current lawmakers and the top-ranking members of their staffs.
Investigators found that 35 House members and 13 Senators own Johnson & Johnson stock, 34 House members and 11 Senators own Pfizer stock, and 2 House members and their spouses own Moderna stock (Gen. 6:5-6).
And it is in their best interest to require everyone including teens and children to be vaccinated.
In addition to profiting from their stock, they are profiting from Political Action Committees (PACs) that are giving millions of dollars to elect (and re-elect) these people.
(More: the next day, Dec. 14, 2021, Pfizer’s CEO said he originally believed vaccinated citizens would need a fourth jab a year after their third jab, but he now believes vaccinated citizens can’t wait that long. He believes the timeline may have to be moved up.)
(More: On Dec. 20, 2021, it was reported that the personal wealth of Moderna’s CEO has gone up $824 million since Nov. 24, 2021, and the discovery of Omicron. The combined wealth of the top 8 shareholders of Moderna and Pfizer went up $10 billion in just 7 days following the discovery of Omicron. Who knows, they may share some of that with one of their favorite PACs.).
Two, On Dec. 19, 2021, it was reported that starting in May, India put 70,000 health care workers on Ivermectin to prevent them from getting Covid and sent them to the state of Uttar Pradesh to test 241 million people in 97,000 villages for Covid.
Everyone that tested positive was treated with Ivermectin, and India is claiming that they have effectively eradicated Covid in Uttar Pradesh.
Only 201 people out of the last 2 ½ million tested (0.004%) were positive.
India’s “massive success” is being hailed as a “medical miracle.”
Why aren’t Fauci, Biden, the CDC, and others recommending the use of Ivermectin, stopping the death and injury of U.S. citizens, stopping lockdowns, halting the use of masks, opening U.S. businesses and schools, etc. (II Tim. 3:1)?
Follow the money, the campaign contributions, and think “fundamental transformation of the world,” global population reduction, etc.
Three, on Dec. 17, 2021, Pres. Biden warned and tried to scare those that haven’t been vaccinated for Covid by saying the unvaccinated “are looking at a winter of severe illness and death for themselves, their families, and the hospitals.”
He altered his lie that “the vaccinated won’t get Covid” by saying the vaccinated that have taken a booster shot are “protected from severe illness and death.”
In my words, he was saying multitudes of unvaccinated will die this winter, but the vaccinated won’t die.
Biden is uniformed, mentally ill, or lying again because the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has admitted that some of the fully vaccinated have got a heart disease called myocarditis, some have got a nerve disease called Guillain Barre Syndrome, some are permanently disabled, and thousands have died.
So, who is telling the truth – Biden, the FDA, the CDC, or WHO, if any? And considering that someone is lying, why shouldn’t the unvaccinated be skeptical?
Four, concerning the Mark of the Beast: on Dec. 20, 2021, it was reported that about 6,000 people in Sweden have already had a chip inserted in their hand.
These chips can be inserted “in the arm, between the thumb and forefinger, or in other parts of the body” (Rev. 13:16).
Some (not all) of these chips contain the patient’s Covid-19 Passport and can be read with a cell phone.
Five, concerning a covenant of peace in the Middle East: on Dec. 14, 2021, Saudi Arabia’s permanent representative to the UN said his nation is ready to normalize relations with Israel under the conditions of the 2002 Arab Peace Initiative (API), and that if Israel will accept those conditions, all the Islamic nations will normalize relations with Israel (I Thess. 5:3).
The 2002 API would divide Israel, create a Palestinian state based on the 1967 borders, and establish a Palestinian capital in East Jerusalem (Joel 3:2).
Israel will eventually agree to a worthless peace treaty, but Israel cannot agree to a treaty under these conditions (because it would lead to the destruction of Israel).
Six, concerning hyper-inflation and an economic collapse: on Dec. 15, 2021, the U.S. Federal Reserve announced that they may increase their base interest rate by 0.25% three times in 2022 to keep inflation from getting out of hand.
Just know that the Word of God will be fulfilled, and this writer believes there will be hyperinflation and a global economic collapse early in the Tribulation Period (Rev. 6:5-6).
Seven, concerning a falling away from the faith or a lukewarm spirit in the Church at the end of the age (II Thess. 2:3): a recent Pew Research Center poll reported that only 45% of respondents said they pray daily (compared to 55% in 2014).
Eight, concerning all the nations being against Israel during the Tribulation Period (Zech. 12:1-3): on Dec. 19, 2021, it was reported that the UN General Assembly considered 19 resolutions that criticized nations in 2021.
One resolution against Syria was deferred, one resolution was adopted for each of four other nations (North Korea, Iran, Myanmar, and Crimea), and 14 resolutions were adopted against Israel.
Notice that 70% of the UN General Assembly criticism was directed at the only nation that the Bible says all the world will be against during the Tribulation Period (Israel), and the remaining 30% was directed at the rest of the world combined (more than 2/3 of the world’s criticism in 2021 was directed at Israel).
Nine, concerning an increase in the frequency and intensity of natural disasters at the end of the age: on Dec. 21, 2021, it was reported that authorities have confirmed that typhoon Rai killed at least 375 people when it recently struck the south-eastern Philippine islands.
Hundreds of people are injured, the damage is extensive, people are hungry, and the price of water and food items has risen 100%.
Ten, concerning a godless world religion: just a few years ago, Christians were advised not to say Merry Christmas, store clerks would say Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas, businesses would say Merry Xmas, etc.
The godless World Health Organization (WHO) is now using the Omicron variant of Covid to urge Christians to limit or cancel plans to celebrate Christmas.
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.
They Are Working Relentlessly To Transform Our Society Into A Dystopian “Big Brother” Hellhole - by Michael Snyder - http://endoftheamericandream.com/they-are-working-relentlessly-to-transform-our-society-into-a-dystopian-big-brother-hellhole/
The past two years have fundamentally transformed just about every nation on the entire planet, and there will be no going back if the elite have their way. For more than a decade, I have been warning about the rapid growth of the “Big Brother” control grid all around us, but in 2020 and 2021 things have gone to an entirely new level. The pandemic has given them the perfect excuse to impose lockdowns, mask requirements, vaccine passports and mandatory injections all over the globe. They have used fear of the virus to get the vast majority of the world population to accept measures that they never would have accepted during normal times. As a result, now they can monitor us, track us and control us like never before.
In many areas, it has already gotten to a point where you can’t even live a normal life without a “vaccine passport” or some other proof that you are up to date on your injections. In New York City, people have been getting arrested just for ordering food without showing proof of vaccination. As a result of such authoritarian measures, the vaccination rate in the city is up to about 85 percent, but that still isn’t good enough for those in charge.
So now they are going to be sending vaccination teams around to “encourage” those that have not been vaccinated to get their shots.
Oh, and if you give in they will hand you $100 for being a good little servant of the system.
Sadly, it sounds like door to door vaccination teams will soon be coming to the UK as well…
Door-to-door teams armed with Covid jabs will be sent to the homes of unvaccinated Britons in plans being considered by Ministers to reach the estimated five million people yet to be inoculated.
Discussions between the Department of Health, NHS England and No 10 over the past week have looked at a nationwide drive to send vaccine teams to areas with low uptake rates as a crucial way to avoid lockdown and other restrictions.
But at least the injections have not become mandatory in the United States and the UK just yet.
However, an increasing number of nations are starting to move in that direction. Ecuador just mandated the injections for everyone that is at least five years old, it appears that Germany could make them mandatory early next year, and Austria is actually hiring people to hunt down “vaccine refusers”.
Yes, our world really is becoming one huge science fiction movie.
In Canada, the government was actually “secretly tracking 33 million phones” in order to gauge “the public’s responsiveness during lockdown measures”…
Canada – which has a population of 38 million – has admitted to secretly tracking 33 million phones during the Covid-19 lockown, according to the National Post, citing Blacklock’s Reporter which first noted the disclosure.
The country’s Public Health Agency (PHAC) did so to assess “the public’s responsiveness during lockdown measures,” according to the report.
Canada has gone completely and totally nuts during this pandemic.
But the Canadians still have a long way to go in order to top the insanity in New Zealand.
Not too long ago, an anti-euthanasia group asked the Ministry of Health if a patient that is in the hospital with COVID is “eligible” for euthanasia…
In November, anti-euthanasia group #DefendNZ asked the New Zealand Ministry of Health (MOH) questions about the practice of the nation’s End of Life Choice Act (EOLC Act). One of these questions was, “Could a patient who is severely hospitalised with Covid-19 potentially be eligible for assisted suicide or euthanasia under the Act if a health practitioner viewed their prognosis as less than 6 months?”
The response that the group got back was extremely alarming…
Doctors receive a government fee of $1,000 plus expenses for each person they kill through euthanasia.
The MOH confirmed that such patients with COVID could be killed by lethal injection under the new euthanasia law. This includes patients who are considered to be dying from COVID or those who have extreme suffering from its effects. The MOH stated, “A terminal illness is most often a prolonged disease where treatment is not effective.”
If you live in New Zealand and you get COVID, you will want to be very careful to clarify what someone means when they ask you if you want to “go to sleep”.
Of course all of the rules, regulations and mandates that have been imposed upon us are not for the elite. They appear to be operating under their own special set of rules, and this should make all of us very sick.
I really like how Emerald Robinson made this point in her most recent article…
Meanwhile, my colleagues in the corporate media spent their time in 2021 telling you that you could fly on a packed airplane but that your church was closed. That you couldn’t walk into your favorite local restaurant but Target and Walmart were always open for you. That your schools were shut down but left-wing political rallies were safe to attend. They treated CDC “guidelines” as law. They repeated with a straight face that your civil rights were basically suspended indefinitely — unless you were a member of Congress or Bill Gates. The overwhelming majority of my so-called colleagues in journalism spent the entire year celebrating this state of affairs. The stench of their treachery to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights will never be washed away.
Our freedoms and liberties are being systematically destroyed all around us, but many Americans don’t seem to care.
Instead, they just continue to allow fear of the virus to push them into doing very irrational things.
For instance, a riot almost erupted in Brooklyn on Friday when officials started to hand out “free at-home COVID-19 tests”…
Cops had to step in Friday as a crowd mobbed a Brooklyn corner where the city was giving away free at-home COVID-19 tests.
Tempers flared as the larger-than-expected crowd descended on Flatbush and Church avenues, one of five spots in the Big Apple where city health officials were doling out tests amid a surge in demand over the holidays and lack of supply.
People were so desperate to get those tests that the police had to be called in.
It reminded me of scenes that we would see on Black Friday in the pre-pandemic days, but in this case people were ready to fight to get their hands on free COVID tests.
Have we really sunk this low?
I was really hoping that the pandemic was starting to subside, but now this new Omicron variant has caused a tremendous wave of fear.
And politicians will inevitably respond to all of this fear by imposing even more authoritarian measures.
I have been shocked by how easy it has been for much of the global population to accept the authoritarian measures that have been imposed so far. If they are not willing to stand up to tyranny now, what will happen when much greater tyranny comes along later?
These are such dark times, and I believe that they will get even darker in 2022.
The fiery grip of tyranny is getting a little tighter with each passing day, but much of the population of our planet does not seem to think that this is a problem.
Nearing Midnight: Sanctioning Sodom – Terry James - https://www.raptureready.com/category/nearing-midnight/
When Hal Lindsey’s book, The Late, Great, Planet Earth, was released in May of 1970, the information startled even more than informed those who read it. People by the millions were suddenly given biblical teaching they, except for very few among them, had never heard.
Bible prophecy was presented as relevant in such a way as to make clear where the world stood in history and where it was headed. The results were a spiritual awakening for many.
I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard people say that they were saved as a result of reading Hal’s book. I agree with the encapsulating description promoting the book:
The Late Great Planet Earth cannot be overstated. The New York Times called it the “no. 1 non-fiction bestseller of the decade.” For Christians and non-Christians of the 1970s, Hal Lindsey’s blockbuster served as a wake-up call on events soon to come and events already unfolding—all leading up to the greatest event of all: the return of Jesus Christ.
The book was—as they say—cutting edge. It did indeed give some current events as viewed through the template of Bible prophecy.
For example, Lindsey and his coauthor C. C. Carlson wrote about how the region of Russia and surrounding USSR states were likely the nucleus of the Gog-Magog force that would, according to the prophet Ezekiel, attack Israel from the north. They detailed the development of the European Union and how it was likely destined to morph into the final Antichrist kingdom as given by Daniel the prophet.
Again, current events and issues of that time in the 1970s were shaping along the lines of God’s Word with regard to prophecy for the end of the age.
Lindsey pointed out many other facets that gave evidence that Christ would soon call the Church into His Presence. This would be the Rapture.
Some accused him of date-setting in that he implied 1988 might be the year of the Rapture or of some calamitous occurrence in earth’s history—based upon Israel having been reborn as a nation in the year 1948.
I don’t find anywhere that Lindsey actually predicted the Rapture, but only that he offered supposition—again, based upon the Bible giving the number of years as forty for a generation. The Lord saying that “this generation shall not pass until all these things are fulfilled” and Israel’s rebirth into modernity being 1948 was offered as the basis for this thought.
Yet, with the ground-breaking evidence he saw through issues and events of the time, viewed through the prism of Bible prophecy, planet earth continued. It did not become the Late, Great, Planet Earth.
So we come to the year looming before us. The year 2022.
We might wonder how can we possibly truly look at the horizon of humanity and proclaim “Happy New Year!” The issues and events faced by humanity during the 1960s and 1970s were daunting in many ways for America and the world. However, those that confront humanity at this time as we begin 2022 are formidable indeed.
Of course, like most folks around at the time of Lindsey’s book release, the masses of humanity are looking in other directions than at the horizon they, in actuality, are facing. This is the case, even though the issues and events of our time far exceed the virulence of the Cold War, oil crises, and the free-love generation.
Not only are the issues and events of these troubled times more ominous in many respects, but they point almost certainly at the coming Tribulation—Daniel’s seventieth week and the year 2022.
Let’s consider but a few as we peer into what the current occupant of the White House once termed “a dark winter.”
If Israel was a central indicator of the lateness of the prophetic hour in the time of The Late, Great, Planet, Earth’s release, that nation and people are in an intensifying diplomatic spotlight at this hour. It is swiftly becoming the “burdensome stone” of Zechariah chapter 12.
Fear of Israel striking Iran’s nuclear facilities, for example, engenders great concern from the global puppet masters—the UN, etc.
Russia, Iran, Turkey
These nation-state entities represent the heart of the Gog-Magog attack. They are coalescing above Israel in the precise configuration Ezekiel prophesied.
The CPC is preparing the Chinese people for something dramatic. They are increasing China’s hegemony over the other regions of Asia. This is shaping for the moment they and other “kings of the east” will kill a third of the earth’s population.
New World Order
The globalists, who in my view are the human minions in consort with the demonic minions of Ephesians 6:12, are preparing the way for Antichrist’s 666 dictatorship.
COVID has served as a tool of gathering control over the entire planet. Vaccine and mask mandates are making lemmings out of people across the globe. The devil’s blueprint for enslaving the planet at some point in the not-too-distant future is well into the construction stage.
Economic tyranny is driving the richest nation to ever exist on the planet toward collapse, with trillions of dollars printed out of whole cloth—nothing to back those dollars. Complete collapse is inevitable.
Culture and Society
The culture isn’t just coarsening, it is corroding and corrupting at a pace the folks of the 1960s and 1970s, despite the sensual evil of that time, could not have fathomed.
This era’s beastly, cultural minions are doing such things as insisting that children age 5 and younger be given hormonal and other treatments in order to change their genders.
They are having perverts teach grade schoolers and younger sexual activities and deviancy that people of the 1960s and 1970s would have deemed worthy of public hanging for the perpetrators.
Even Catholics are appalled at the pope’s antics in these times.
He condones homosexuality; he says Christ is not the only way to salvation; he makes nice in trying to bring all religions together—a thing Bible prophecy tells us will be central to Antichrist and his system of world control.
Yet with all this and much more wickedness developing, I can say “Happy New Year!”
That’s because the Lord Jesus Christ is still sitting at the right side of God the Heavenly Father. The Father is about to say to the Son, “Go get my children.”
I can assure this, because all of the signals are in place that point to the Tribulation and Christ’s Second Advent.
Unlike in the time of Hal’s release of his book, they are all in place. That is a happy prospect indeed for 2022!
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. (Luke 21:28)
2021: A Prophetic Review - By Hal Lindsey - https://www.hallindsey.com/ww-12-26-2021/
Fully half of all Americans say 2021 was the worst year of their lives. Do you know what that means? It means that what we are doing as a society is not working. It means the country is on a downward path and that rejecting God causes pain. It means that the encouragement of filth and the glorification of evil are the worst ways to raise a generation of kids. It is a reminder that sin’s final dividend is death.
People are increasingly miserable, and as society continues to push thoughts of God aside, it will get worse. Every day, 2021 brought more news stories pointing to signs of the last days as given in the Bible. But I want to focus on just one — the global movement to make the world ready for Antichrist. Few of the elite movers and shakers know what they are really doing or why. But let’s be clear. Satan has an agenda for our planet and its inhabitants. And those who reject Christ are increasingly vulnerable to his manipulations.
True democracy stands between Antichrist and world power. It must either be destroyed or dramatically changed — “reset.” And that’s where the World Economic Forum (WEF) comes in. In 2020, they began implementing something they called, “The Great Reset.” Their website says that the purpose of the Great Reset is “to build a new social contract.” Think about that phrase. According to the Oxford Dictionary, “social contract” is “a means of explaining the origin of government and the obligations of subjects.”
In creating “a new social contract,” elites want to reset the relationship between governments and the governed. Lately, WEF has been calling it, “The Great Narrative.” But it amounts to the same thing — global power concentrated in a few elites.
For years, conspiracy theorists saw sinister undertones in the World Economic Forum’s activities. But their sessions were hidden behind closed doors, and no one knew for sure what they were up to. That has now changed. In 2021, Klaus Schwab, WEF’s Founder and Executive Chairman openly spoke of a small group of unelected individuals imagining, designing, and even executing the future for billions of people.
At the WEF’s Great Narrative summit in November, Schwab said, “We meet today to develop a great narrative; a story for the future…. We are here now to imagine the future, design the future, and then execute.”
It’s no accident that the summit took place in and under the co-sponsorship of the United Arab Emirates — a “constitutional monarchy.” It was specifically held in the Emirate of Dubai, whose government is considered an “absolute monarchy.” In recent years, global elites have become increasingly distrustful of the rabble — in other words of voters and therefore of democracy. The world’s elites have come to believe that big global decisions should be left to people like themselves — rich, atheistic, proud, and unaccountable.
Global manipulations can be extremely frustrating to see. That’s why we should always remember the scriptural admonition found in Psalms 37:1 (NASB). “Do not fret because of evildoers.” You can drive yourself to distraction looking at and fretting over the deeds of evil men. But in John 14:27 (NASB), Jesus gave this glorious promise. “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.”
It’s like recording a football game while you are out, then learning that your team wins in the end. When you get home to watch the game, even the dark moments for your team do not discourage you because you already know how things turn out. We win! Rest in the comfort of those words.
Daily Jot: Scared to death - Bill Wilson – www.dailyjot.com
The fear porn industry propagandized by the government, big pharma, big healthcare, and delivered by the mainstream news media has most everyone living in fear. It doesn’t help when the president of the country says that unvaccinated citizens will have a long hard winter of death and illness. This is what our country has been reduced to—a government of fear, for fear and by fear. Listen up people. Get your mind right. If you are reading this, you are most likely a follower of Christ. Christ told us in Matthew 10:28, “Fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul.” 2 Timothy 1:7 says, “For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” Simple. Do not fear.
These politicians, corporate bosses and the news media are knowingly, and in some cases, are unknowingly using fear to entangle you in bondage. Don’t succumb to it. COVID is not a death sentence. If you contract it, you have a 99+% chance of survival. Even the vaccinated are getting COVID at alarming rates. The vaccinated are transmitting COVID at alarming rates. The “vaccine” only protects from severe illness and death—this after using the population of the world as an experiment to find out just how effective it is. But if you do not get the “vaccine,” it is still likely that you will live. The fear porn campaign by these nefarious captains of democracy and corporate enterprise are playing a high stakes game for money and power.
In recent weeks, we have had very close unvaccinated over 60-year-old friends who contracted COVID. They found an independent doctor that prescribed an alternative treatment protocol—one that the media, government and big medicine ridicule as horse medicines and placebos. Above all, they stayed out of the hospital. And in about 10 days, they were well. Likewise, a business associate’s unvaccinated over-70-year-old parents got COVID. They were treated with herbs and other alternative protocols. Our unvaccinated adult children survived COVID doing the same. Above all, they stayed out of the hospital. They are well. The over 60 crowd is most vulnerable to COVID. And yes, the shot may have helped save lives.
But I wonder how many people died in hospitals from government-mandated protocols using remdesivir, with a known 50% mortality rate (according to the New England Medical Journal), and a 45-84% age-related mortality rate for ventilator treatment (National Library of Medicine report on 69 studies of 57,000 patients). Doing the math, half of the 800,000 COVID deaths in America alone might be attributed to government mandated protocols as influenced by big pharma, making big money. Best thing to do, from my experience, is eat healthy, use supplements like zinc, quercetin, vitamins C and D daily to boost your immune system. And if you contract COVID. Don’t sit there and wring your hands in fear. Be aggressive. Take it on like the fearless Christian American you are. Live free and victoriously, not fearfully in bondage.
Daily Devotion: Remember His Faithfulness - by Greg Laurie – www.harvest.org
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever —Hebrews 13:8
https://harvest.org/resources/devotion/remember-his-faithfulness/ - Listen
Often, after the mountaintop, there is the valley. Often, after the blessing comes the challenge. The temptation of Jesus in the wilderness took place after He was baptized in the Jordan River by John the Baptizer. God the Father said, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased” (Matthew 3:17 NKJV).
The next verse tells us, “Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil” (Matthew 4:1 NKJV). After the blessing came the temptation. We should not be surprised when those things happen.
Jesus said in the parable of the sower, “Behold, a sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds came and devoured them” (Matthew 13:3–4 NKJV). This reminds us that the Devil attacks when we’re trying to reach people.
When you seek to share the gospel with someone, expect satanic opposition, because you’re entering into a time of spiritual warfare. Mark’s gospel tells us about a desperate father who had a demon-possessed son. He said to Jesus, “Have mercy on us and help us, if you can” (Mark 9:22 NLT).
Jesus had a very strong reaction to this. He said, “‘What do you mean, “If I can”?’ Jesus asked. ‘Anything is possible if a person believes’” (verse 23 NLT).
Effectively Jesus was saying, “Of course I can handle this. Don’t forget that I’ve walked on water, healed a blind man, and raised someone from the dead. You need to have faith right now.”
When we’re facing trouble in our lives, it’s a good idea to remember God’s faithfulness to us in the past. We may be tempted to think that God has forgotten about us or abandoned us, but He hasn’t. Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

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
