“Eschatology is the thread that weaves the tapestry of Scripture into a glorious mosaic.” Hank Hanegraaff, The Complete Bible Answer Book—Collector’s via CRI
“For thus hath the Lord said unto me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he seeth.” Isa 21:6
“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
“But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.” Ezekiel 33:6
This is a believer’s journey blog that has grown into a study board to source the word of God as it relates to the world, and the days in which we are living. I fell away from God, and after twenty years, I found the strength to heed God’s call and follow Jesus. Right away I felt God pointing me from the milk, of His word, to the meat: Eschatology, a part of the Bible that is often misunderstood and/or overlooked altogether because it is harder to chew and digest. I feel God calling me to root deeper in His word so that “when affliction or persecution arises because of the word,” I will not wither away, but stand rooted, and mature in God. (Matt 13:20-21 / Heb 5:11-14).
Biblical prophecy, of our past, present and future, spotlights God’s revelation to humanity, and points to Jesus Christ, who died for us, rose from the dead so we can live, and is coming again to gather us to Himself. When we omit the latter, we dilute the urgency of several parables in the New Testament, that teach the sudden, unexpected, dramatic coming of the Lord, and the importance of readiness – the door keeper: Luke 12:35-38, The head of the House: Luke 12:39-40, the servant in charge of the household: Matt 24:42-49, the ten virgins: Matt 25:1-13, the talents Matt 25:14-30.
In addition, the great commission instructs us to make disciples by baptism, and by teaching them to observe all Jesus commanded. (Matt 28:16-20). Jesus rebuked the people, of His time, for not recognizing the signs of His coming. (Luke 12:56). My heart is to help educate others in this area, and pass the understanding of the “blessed hope” to generations to come. (Titus 2:13).
And while some are called to preach, and others to teach, we are all called to develop our own individual gifts in order to mature the church into His coming. (Eph 4:11-16, Rom 12). Whenever I doubt this calling, I find comfort spoken in Esther 4:14: “and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”
This chosen path not only glorifies God, but prepares our future generations for a mature relationship with Christ, and provides them with specific discernment tools for the last days.
As I strive to share the hope that is in every message of God; I can say with confidence that when you feel God pulling you in a certain direction, GO! (Rom 10). No matter how hard your situation is, or how far you think you are from God, He is still on the throne, He is able, He will step in, He will guide you, and He will equip you. All you have to do is ask, and leave it in His hands.
If you feel unworthy of the path God is pointing you toward, I highly recommend you listen to this Wings of the Eagle message: Only Satan says you can’t understand the Bible.
