Time Waits For No Man! 2/10/16
What Time Is It? 2/10/16




Matthew 24:3 (KJV)
3  And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

WHAT TIME IS IT???

In my living room, we have a clock mounted on the wall, directly above our most cherished resource-the big screen TV!

Last week, the battery wore out and we spent several days of frustration-few people wear a wrist watch anymore.

We were constantly seeking other resources to find out "WHAT TIME IT IS!"

Do you remember Y2K?

I do.

I had a physical Church back then and every year I would hold a NEW YEAR WATCH NIGHT SERVICE.

This yearly service began around 9 PM and would continue as we PRAYED the NEW YEAR in.

That year, 2000, there was MUCH talk and MUCH fear about what the turn of the millennium would bring.

I even had people who REFUSED to attend the service out of fear!

They were honestly frightened by other sincere "experts" who were PREACHING what "might" occur as the clock struck midnight.

All computers were "destined" to fail, planes would fall out of the skies, cars run a muck, trains collide, banks would fail!!!

BUT nothing happened!!

1998 was exactly 40 years AFTER Israel became a nation.

Jesus was "supposed" to come back!!??

As I write this, John Haggai is preaching to my daughter on TV.

His message, "THE KING IS COMING!"

Can you say "FOUR BLOOD MOONS!!??"

And yes, I DID read and very much enjoy Jewish/Messianic Rabbi/Pastor Jonathan Cahn's excellent books, "The Harbinger," and "The Mystery of Shemitah."

I DO believe "the time is short" and in a eminent, IMMEDIATE return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!!!

1 Corinthians 7:29 (KJV)
29  But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none;  

Revelation 12:12 (KJV)
12  Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.  

Ephesians 5:16 (KJV)
16  Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

And YES, we CAN know the "SEASONS."

1 Thessalonians 5:1-2 (KJV)
1  But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.  

2  For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

1 Thessalonians 5:4 (KJV)
4  But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

BUT this one FACT remains:

Matthew 24:36 (KJV)
36  But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.  

NO ONE/ "KNOWETH NO MAN" "that DAY and HOUR!!!"

ONLY THE FATHER!

The fact remains that "most, if not all" of us reading this today may die a natural death and/or live to be old or OLDER than we are now.

This "world may NOT be our home," but for the present it is!

2 Peter 3:11 (KJV)
11  Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

So, then, WE "must live like we are dying!!"

And "dance like no one is watching!!"

Which brings us back to this one Word-

REDEEMING-from <G1537> (ek) and <G59> (agorazo); to buy up , i.e. ransom ; figurative to rescue from loss ( improve opportunity) :- redeem.

Strong's Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.

Ephesians 5:16 (KJV)
16  Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

" Rescue from loss (IMPROVE OPPORTUNITY!)

Time is the one thing that cannot be purchased!

Today, "live like YOU are dying!"

Never grow old in thought and deed, continue to grow in all aspects of YOUR life!

Seize the moment, REDEEM your REMAINING time.

HAVE A BLESSED DAY AND LIFE!

WHAT TIME IS IT??

It is TIME to live!!!

Ezekiel 37:5 (KJV)
5  Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:  

SMILE!

NOW SAY UNTO YOUR BONES-LIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GOD BLESS YOU!!!
