The Reason For The Season










The Reason for the Season:
2014  

What comes around, goes around ... something to think about!

















If you weren't awake at the beginning of 2014, hopefully by now you are.

Here at the end of 2014 as we enter the holiday season there are any number of reasons to consider the possibility ...this one could be your last.

Whether Jewish, Christian, Muslim, or indifferent ...for anyone who reads this there is an opportunity maybe for the first time ...to recognize the Reality of God as ancient Prophesy is being fulfilled before your eyes ...what you do with and ...where you end up at the end of it all, is a choice only you can make.
 

The odds against unprecedented events unfolding as you read this coinciding with events described by ancient prophets in the way they are coming together are astronomical.

Despite it all ...there is a reason to celebrate the season. 

Watch out that no one deceives you! Matthew 24

Last holiday season (2013) as we narrowly averted what would have been World War III over Obama's insistence of attacking Syria over an alleged 'chemical weapons attack' by Assad that killed 1400 innocent Syrians, Humanity turning the corner into 2014, seeing prophetic events exploding before their eyes simultaneously ... with ISIS, Israel's war in Gaza, the United States' pulling away from Israel, and the failed 'Peace Talks' we are all seeing the accelerating Prophetic and philosophical dividing of Humanity that even a New World Order can’t fix. 

Very few people would have imagined  as recently as a year ago, the events unfolding in the Middle East ...literally on Israel's borders.

2014 has been even more intense as anyone knows ...as Israel faces a critical hour and the United States pulls further away, it becomes ever more important to cling to the reason for this season.

Wars and rumors of wars, earthquakes in diverse places, signs and wonders in the heavens, pestilence, lawlessness and ever increasing talk of a 'New World Order' has accelerated in 2014. 

 

The Sheep and the Goats

Unlike any other time in the history of Humanity (much of which is being stirred by media and electronic information) ...like a grand orchestration as we end 2014 and another round of elections ...people are increasingly divided over political, cultural, racial, ideological, and religious issues.



'The Bible says [to paraphrase] ‘The sheep will be separated from the goats.. the sheep at the Right Hand and the goats at the other… There will be talk of peace for Jerusalem, but there will be no peace.’

Events in 2010 -2011 like the devastation in Pakistan, the earthquakes in Haiti and Chile, tsunamis, fires in Russia and Israel, wars and rumors of wars in Korea and The Middle East, economic uncertainty with nations collapsing ...rampant unemployment and riots taking place world wide at this moment in history are unprecedented yet seeming less in comparison to events in 2014.

...however events since 2009 to date are depicted in prophecies as events that would occur prior to the end of time.





The Reason for the Season?

In a historical or Biblical time line, a 'season' refers to a life changing period of time for Humanity or an individual
...a 'paradigm shift' of sort ...sometimes positive ...often times bleak and challenging such as the 'Great Depression', World War II ...not underestimating the current Arab Awakening or simply a long illness or a childhood in a person's life.


 


Often prophets and research analysts foretell of future events not unlike those being experienced and seemingly accelerating globally, even as you read this post ...but none quite like the present.

During the holiday season people world wide often celebrate the birth of Jesus as the 'reason for the season'.





...but others


...Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. 3For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. 4They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
Jeremiah 10:2-4 2


 

Revered in many religions as a prophet ... the Savior Messiah ...or the Son of God in Christianity ... 'Jesus' with His believers and skeptics alike ... ' was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” '

Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. 6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of birth pains. Matthew 24 (New International Version, ©2010)

Jesus goes on to describe a season of events unfolding before Humanity like those unfolding before our eyes as we speak ..and others to come shortly.


Then He says regarding the season:


32 “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. 33 Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door. Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.'


Time Is Short But Not Too Late

Only recently, the word amongst many had been the election of 2012 (if the world holds together until then) ...will probably be our last chance to get it right.


While many people world wide looking for solutions to current events turn to
'conventional wisdom', politicians and 'pundits' ...perhaps they are looking in all the wrong places.

God says,
'Because of this, I will once again astound these hypocrites with amazing wonders. The wisdom of the wise will pass away, and the intelligence of the intelligent will disappear.' Isaiah 29:14 New Living Translation;
'For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent' 1 Corinthians 1:19 King James Bible.

...but God also says in 2 Chronicles 7:14; ' ...if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.'






Its all about choice

Everyone on the planet has personal responsibility in determining how and where they deal with current events and where they find themselves at the end of it all.





As the media keeps distracted over politics, debates, and petty drama ...stop and think if there isn't something you are missing in all this ...because time is of the essence.

The challenge ...is to get sheep to quit thinking and acting like sheep (or pulling one's head out) ...and start thinking and acting like foxes ...unfortunately time is running out.


In a recent discussion with Charlie Rose regarding the deteriorating global climate and environmental condition, Bill McKibben author of his newly released book 'Eaarth', made a comment of which the same could be said regarding Israel and the Middle East;


'At some point, ... it will be too late for effective political action. ... there reaches a point where it won’t matter who’s president and it won’t matter how devoted Congress is, the damage will be out of control.





Watch out that no one deceives you!
Matthew 24


3 For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4 They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. 5 But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist; 2 Timothy 4, 3-5




Even the 'religious' cling to their religion rather than God ...but, when all else is failing as it is right now ...God says:

'If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.'
2 Chronicles 7:14



Reality check

'...God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;' 1 Corinthians 1:27 King James Bible

As for those with a little sanity remaining ...just when things look like it couldn't get any worse (thanks to the 'conventional wisdom' of All the Kings Horses and All the Kings Men) ...there is still a place to turn if we have what it takes.


Watch out that no one deceives you! Matthew 24
