Nobody but the Father knows exactly when this will happen, but the Bible assures us that it WILL happen.
Did perhaps millions of people vanish from the earth and you are left wondering what has happened?
If you are reading this after this has happened, this post is for you, my friend! I’m sharing some videos and information with you in this post to help you understand what has befallen our world. Please pay close attention!
This week’s Mindful Monday devotional is very near and dear to my heart. The devotional is given by Anne Graham Lotz. You may know her best as the daughter of Billy Graham. As many of my readers and those who know me are aware, the Rapture and Bible prophecy as a whole is a calling of mine, and has been since a few years before I gave my heart to Christ when I was a senior in high school. Both of my grandfathers were pastors so I grew up in my mom’s dad’s church in my early years. The closest I became aware of what the end times were back then was from singing the song, “I’ll Fly Away.” As a child, I just thought the song was about the time of our deaths.
Through a whole series of events I now realize were orchestrated by my Father, God, I was educated about the Rapture and subsequent tribulation period to be endured by those who would be Left Behind. I definitely did not want to be left behind to
Hi everyone! I pray you all are well and blessed this week.
There is so much happening in our world! Just when one disaster winds down, it seems like another has been following close behind it. I really feel called to continue doing these weekly updates to inform you and I both as we watch for the Lord’s return. Also, in hopes of reaching those fence-sitters who need to fall over to the side of Christ in time! There are many of you out there possibly reading this who do not know if you are ready to meet the Lord should today be the day. I encourage you, if you do not know, visit this web site.
So I’m sitting here working on this week’s prophecy update and this tab opens in my browser that I didn’t open. I have no idea how it came to be open in front of me, but in case this is from the Lord, I’m sharing it here before our usual updates. It’s interesting so far:
Is anyone else getting the Autumn decorating itch? 🙂 I spent some time this week creating a whole new set of Autumn printable planner stickers and the Silhouette cut files to match them. Today I am sharing with you a freebie from that set. You can check out the rest of the set in my Etsy shop here. This is formatted to fit the classic-size Happy Planner planner, but you can always use it in other planners and bullet journals.
Print these out on full-size sticker paper. I use these here. They’re priced great and you can write on them easily. They are good enough quality for my needs. If you want a top-quality sticker paper look for these or clear ones here. (Though not all pens or markers will write well on the clear ones). If you don’t want to use sticker paper, you can print them on card stock or regular printer paper and glue them down. Honestly, the sticker paper is the best way, however. Regardless of the type.
If you’d like this printable, click on the image below to pull up the full-sized PDF file for printing. If you use this kit, I would LOVE to see how you use it! Please comment below so I can see 🙂
This may be a little long, and I ask you to please bear with me 🙂 You may recall that I mentioned last week that I had spent about 9 years backslidden. Of course if I had it to do over again, I would never have, but as always; hindsight is 20/20, right? 🙂
I was on fire for the Lord though young in body and even younger in my faith than I would have thought at the time. I attended several fellowships or Bible studies and had something going on in that regard every night but Mondays. Little by little it started dwindling as groups stopped meeting for one reason or another. At the point where I started becoming discouraged, I was attending a Foursquare Gospel church regularly where I was driving the church van picking up intercity youth, and also attending the one larger fellowship that I had left called Koinonia.
Koinonia was an alternative to the bar scene, an offshoot of one called Nightlife. Nightlife met on Friday nights and for one reason or another, it stopped meeting after several years of being on fire. Koinonia was on Saturday nights and I had many dear friends there, but was one of the few singles that was left who hadn’t met or married a love interest. It started getting to where myself and a few others started feeling like third wheels whenever we would meet with the others. Yet, I was dealing with it…
I hope you are all well and those in the south east portion of the US are staying dry and safe in light of the approaching Hurricane Irma! You are all in my prayers.
I promised I would film a tutorial showing my amateur/beginner’s method of Bible art journaling. I’ll post the video from my YouTube channel below and below the video share a few notes and give you the links to the items I used.
God’s blessings upon you all!
I would love it if you would subscribe and give this video a thumbs up <3
I just got a good video editing program I’m learning to edit my videos with. In addition to that, YouTube has made some changes and there are a few places I wish I could have made annotations on! They have stopped the annotations feature, so I’ll
How many of you are like me and are just stunned at the popular culture we live in today? I’m not as young as I used to be, but I’m not ancient either 🙂 I remember the days (not that long ago!) when good was promoted and evil was looked down upon. We always wanted to be the cowboy in the white hat and wanted the villain in the black hat to go down. As a Christian, years ago I backslid for a time. As the granddaughter of two pastors, I knew the Bible and the teachings of Christ well enough to know that I was in sin. I never questioned that and I didn’t explain it away as being anything but what it was. In fact, I wouldn’t let anyone around me know that I was a Christian, because I didn’t want to cast a bad testimony upon our Lord or on the reputation of His church. Sin was sin and I knew it. I think I shocked a handful of people who had met me during my backslidden years when I got online and started posting scripture and calls to come to Christ because they had no clue I had a deep faith deep within me that I never demonstrated while in my backslidden state.
When you turn the TV on now, open a magazine, listen in on a conversation while out and about, sin is considered good and appropriate, even (sad to say) while calling ourselves Christians. I know those who live an “alternative lifestyle” that the Bible plainly calls sin who acknowledge their lifestyles openly and say God is ok with it and that they are ready to meet Him when they die. They embrace the thought that He approves of the lifestyle.
Hello everyone! I hope you are all well, especially all of you in Texas and those of whom like me, have family and/or friends in the areas affected by Hurricane Harvey. What a traumatic week we in the US have had this week! That’s not to say that those outside the US haven’t been through a great deal as well, as our prophecy updates for this week will show.
In light of Hurricane Harvey (and Hurricane Irma brewing in the Atlantic), I encourage you to take a look at Bill Koenig’s book, “Eye to Eye: Facing the Consequences of Dividing Israel”. Also, if you are in a position to help those who were badly affected by Hurricane Harvey, I encourage you to visit the SAMARITAN’S PURSE website and make a donation to help. That’s run by Franklin Graham. Please be cautious of scams online and elsewhere and protect your gift by those taking advantage of this catastrophe and give to a source that is trusted and respected such as Samaritan’s Purse.
With that said, let’s get on with this week’s End of the Age Prophecy Updates! —>
(no new videos that I could find this week, but I really encourage you to follow his blog posts HERE and HERE).
Joel is very intelligent and up to date on current events involving Israel (where he and his family now live), the Middle East, Russia, and others. I own every book he’s written and have learned a great deal from him. You can find his books HERE, which I highly recommend!
Joel has a new book coming out in March called The Kremlin Conspiracy I’ve already pre-ordered on Amazon 🙂 Check it out! –>
We’re all so busy with the rush of daily life. Get the kids off to school, get the house clean, go to your meeting, doctor’s appointment, get home in time to take the husband’s suit to the dry cleaners but make sure to be home before the school bus does, to get the kids off the bus. Get the kids happy and settled and start dinner. Serve dinner, get everyone happy and collapse on the couch for an hour exhausted, get the kids to bed and go to bed yourself. Rinse and repeat 🙂
Even those of us who are planners and bullet journalers. We make sure to get everyone’s appointments down on our calendar. We write down the days we need to do certain chores to keep up on it all so it doesn’t build up and come crashing down around us (because most of us know that if we don’t do it, it won’t get done, right?)
But as today’s devotional reminds us: Don’t neglect the eternal!
In all your planning, make sure you pencil in some time for the Lord. If you don’t put Him first, nothing else will fall into place in any kind of effective way. If if falls together physically, often we are left empty and exhausted and our spiritual and mental health suffers as a result.
