Redeeming the Time, because the Days are Evil
It’s about time to know about time. There is a gripping urgency that the redeemed remnant is feeling. Apostle Paul’s words are ringing in the ears of many, “Awake, sleeper [wake up to the reality time is short]…making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is” (Ephesians 5:14,16). Yahshua (Jesus) is urging us to prayerfully redeem the little daylight left as we “work out [our] salvation with fear and trembling” (Philippians 2:12) and co labor with Him in the end time harvest field. His Spirit, through surrendered lives, is beseeching “the lost” to come, repent, be washed and saved by the blood of the Lamb of God.
In these evil last days on earth, as biblically prophesied, Satan “the god of this world,” and his fallen angels (demons) are raging, successfully deceiving humanity and causing massive rebellion against all righteousness. Apostle Paul cautions us not to be “unaware of the Enemy’s schemes”, lest we fall prey to deception and he have an advantage over us (2 Corinthians 2:11). It is a dramatic reality that “the Ancient Serpent” and his multiplying demonic agents are powerfully succeeding through the liberal deceptive “progressive global agenda”. One of his main battle strategies is aimed at the removal of the reverential knowledge, truth, and worship of the One true living God and Creator. The “Ancient Serpent” and his evil cohorts are increasingly injecting worldwide masses with their venomous lies and hatred toward the Most High God and Messiah of Israel, the Holy Bible, His Jewish people, His redeemed (Jew and Gentile) righteous remnant, and Yahveh’s sovereignly given Land of Israel.
The Enemy’s global agenda is spreading like an uncontrollable wildfire, which is fiercely leading to the prophesied “great tribulation” and the Almighty’s outpoured wrath. At the core of this global spiritual war is Satan’s all consuming desire to have complete rulership over this world and humanity. The Almighty gave warning through Apostle John, “Woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!” (Revelation 12:12). Ultimately, Satan has come to deceive, destroy, and bring multitudes of victims into his evil kingdom of utmost darkness and everlasting torment. Yahveh (the Lord) prophesied through Isaiah, “Terror and pit and snare await you, O inhabitants of the earth” (Isaiah 24:17). This global war between Yahveh the God of Creation and Satan “the prince of the air” will continue raging until the all conquering Yahshua (Jesus) “the Prince of Peace” returns, and ends this world wide unimaginable holocaust, described as “a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will be again” (Daniel 12:1, Matthew 24:21).
Our Heavenly Father says, “tell the righteous remnant it will be well with them” (Isaiah 3:10). They have held on to the blessed hope and heeded the words of our Savior, “He who endures to the end will be saved” (Matthew 24:13). This “called, chosen, and faithful remnant” endures yet rejoices as they wait for the fulfillment of all prophecy. The eternal victory shout is coming! The Apostle John heard and wrote these words of great encouragement, "The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord Yahveh and of His Messiah; and He will reign forever and ever." “‘Then the sovereignty, power and greatness of all the kingdoms under heaven will be handed over to the holy people of the Most High. His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all rulers will worship and obey him’" (Revelation 11:15, Daniel 7:27).
Yahshua our Messiah and Righteous King will rule the entire world from His throne room in the holy city, the New Jerusalem (Revelation 21:2). “And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new…these words are faithful and true.”…It is done. I am the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost. He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son (and daughter)” (Revelation 21:5-7). HalleluYAH!
Our loving Father is sounding a very loud wake up call to those who have an attentive ear to hear what the Spirit is saying in this late hour. The watchful and eagerly waiting remnant is drawing intimately closer to their Savior. As pilgrims on earth, they live with their hope completely fixed on seeing and being with Yahshua (Jesus) in His eternal kingdom. As a longing Bride, the faithful few are quickly forsaking all and everything in this passing world to love, obey, and follow their beloved Bridegroom, out of this doomed earth into His heavenly Kingdom. Dear ones, “The Son of Man is coming at an hour that you do not expect” (Matthew 24:44). As we are witnessing these prophesied end times unfolding before our eyes, let us look up, work out our salvation, redeeming the time for the days are evil.
The Holy Bible ends with these motivating words, “He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming quickly.” Amen. Come, Lord Yahshua (Jesus). The grace of the Lord Yahshua (Jesus) be with all. Amen (Revelation 22:20-21).
Heavenly Father, You are revealing more truth to me about the evil times we are experiencing on earth. Thank You for making me more aware of Your eternal heavenly plans as well as the wicked worldly plans of Satan and his demonic agents. Please help me to be wise in these perilous times so that I don’t fall prey to the deceptions and temptations of the enemy’s wicked schemes. Thank You that the truth is setting me free and opening the eyes of my understanding bringing me added conviction and godly sorrow.
Father, I repent for not being a wise steward of Your gift of time. I have often been foolishly wasteful and careless, not wisely valuing the limited time You have blessed me with on earth. Please forgive me for wasting so much of my life on worldly and eternally worthless desires and preoccupations. Yahshua (Jesus) I humbly repent, I do not want to rebel and grieve You. I prayerfully ask You to “teach me to number my days” by seeking “first Your kingdom and Your righteousness”. I need the help of Your Spirit to stay prayerfully focused on that which lasts eternally for Your praise, honor, glory, and the salvation of others.
I know time is running out. Please Yahshua (Jesus), cleanse my repentant heart with Your blood and fill me with a fresh powerful infilling of Your Holy Spirit. I want to obey Your word, spending my remaining time on earth for Your kingdom to advance and Your will to be done in and through me. Thank You for Your unfailing love that continually forgives and covers my sins with Your sacrificial blood. Thank You for shaking and waking me up, urging me to look up and straighten up. Yahshua (Jesus) please help me, I want to spend the rest of my stay on earth redeeming the time by the power of Your Spirit. You are holy and faithful, may I be found holy and faithful, truly ready for Your coming heavenly kingdom. I clearly hear Your Spirit saying to my heart, “It’s about time to know about time!”
