Matthew 24:44-51 (King James Version)

44Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. 45Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 46Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 47Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

As God's people we are to live each day rejoicing for the Lord has made it and we are to be glad in it. The Lord provides the blessings to do just so by the fruit of the Spirit; Galatians 5:22-23 22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.,along with a sound mind; 2 Timothy 1:7 7For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

In Matthew's verse 45 we are told that 'meat will be given in due season.' I believe the 'meat' is sustenance, as well as truth.

We are well equipped by our Lord and Savior with everything we need each and every single day. We are to always be prepared for His (unexpected) return; within our hearts and minds - our thoughts focused on spiritual things. One of my favorite spiritual things is believing tonight, this very night, could be the night when the whole world is awakened. Suddenly and unexpectedly, and while my mind has no accurate concept of what this great and awful day will really be like, my heart jumps for joy thinking about the 'twinkling of an eye' which will change everything in a mere instant. The New Jerusalem; Heaven on the earth that the meek ones are heirs to. The ones who are focusing on their meekness, as well as the other fruits of the Spirit, for we know our enemy is already defeated and the demise of that enemy is as imminent and swift as His return. Rejoice and make a joyful noise unto the Lord for He is the only One that is worthy of all our praise; the only One who is able to wage war with the beast; the only One worthy to open the Book of Life - Jesus Christ. The One who has equipped us to not only to endure the battle but to be the victors.

All our hope and trust in Him because all His words are true as are the promises to His people which are far better than anything this world has to offer. Be always willing to follow Him with knowing that there is nothing to look back for, not even for a second because the land of milk and honey is what lies ahead...and it's streets are paved in gold.

A very loud AMEN my sister FF.

I am ready with you to rejoice and make a joyful noise unto the Lord.

Thank you for the encouraging post.

Stay blessed and keep looking up.

...and I am looking up right alongside with you my brother, making a joyful noise and waiting patiently; a tremendously exciting event to witness - even more incredible than witnessing Elijah being taken up to Heaven in a chariot of fire...imagine.

I am blessed by your kind words, and it was great to hear from you. You've been missed along with the rest of our little community. I pray for all, especially those why may be undergoing unforseen trials as many people seem to be dealing with...a time of testing, perhaps? There is nothing that can substitute the strength and encouragement that comes from the word of our Lord, and I thank Him for all that He does. He is such an amazing God, why anyone would willingly substitute Him is beyond my understanding. Such is the world though...only temporarily and then there will be no strangers among us. They will be tormented night and day for eternity.

In the meantime, it is important to stay watchful and there is so much going on in our world; from the fires raging in California and threatening a 'critical' communication center to the hurricane Jimena (remember post-Katrina) about to hit Mexico and CA at almost a category 5 strength to news of a new bill to allow presidential power of an emergency takeover of the internet to the 'deteriorating' situation in Afghanistan that will require more troops for their bloodbath to conflicting reports of Iran's nuclear ambitions between the IAEA and Israel. The IAEA says it has no findings of bomb procurements and Israel of course says otherwise. Heavy sighs, lots of prayers and may He keep giving us the peace that comes from truly believing that He is God of all and that includes everything that is happening. He knows what they are going to do before they do it, and it is going to be an awesomely incredible event when He stops them. Praise His holy name on the highest high and all glory to Him. This is all about Him, and I truly hope with all my strength, that it is about time because surely His due, when every knee will bow and every tongue confess, is way past due; all glory to Him.

They are busy now indeed, but their plans fail and their time is growing shorter and they know it, and they want to take as many of us with them as they can. There is and will be much work to be done.

Love and prayers.

We spread our vileness everywhere we go:

How many good and righteous men can be found in the world today?

Indonesia has had a major 7.0 earthquake today; Hurricane Jimena is bearing down and California is still ablaze. The famine situation in Africa compounds daily. Obama is telling everyone 'not to panic, but be prepared' for the pandemic that is coming, and people barely notice all that is amiss.

Soon the whole world will have to wake up.

The reason for the sound mind He so richly blesses His people with:

1 Corinthians 2:16 (King James Version)

16For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ.

Annon, my amazing brother, I love you. You are blessing me in many ways with your presence here for where there are two or more of us gathered in His name, He is with us. Right now, looks like it is you and me, and I thank our God for you.

Great links again, Annon. Indeed, everything that is happening is staggering; a time like no other. I am so pleased that the Lord has brought us together to watch it all unfold. Stay blessed and always keep looking up for our redemption is most definitely drawing near.

I feel like dancing.

Liars...every one of them. Why would Iran 'decide to go for confrontation' while the strongest, richest six nations in the world are plotting against them, but now the EU claims they are being 'provoked' because Iran has appointed a terror suspect as defense minister:

I am posting this article which may offend some, and please accept my apologies for that, but the comments are pretty revealing. Many are calling what they are witnessing is evil, and I would very much like to think people are not only waking up, but starting to speak out with the truth as well:

Many people are upset regarding Obama addressing the nation's youth via satellite in their classrooms this coming Tuesday at noon. Many are saying if their school is showing the broadcast, their kids will not attending school. Then on Wednesday he will take over every television station to address the nation about healthcare reform. They continue to divide the people while the people do not know how they are being divided, but the Lord is also dividing. Separating the wheat from the tares, and unless I am totally crazy, the tares know the uprooting has begun. Bring it on!

Bad news surround the headlines. It is reported that workplace suicides are up 28% in the US in the past year and job recovery will not occur until 2014. The Obama administration continues on the same wicked path that Bush set us on which is no surprise whatsoever, from the military industrial complex roaring along to the No Child Left Behind Act affecting the recruiter presence in our high schools and the gathering of information on all juniors and seniors' records given to the government.

Israel is continuing settlelment in the West Bank causing more Palestinians to be refugees and homeless in their own land. The US says it's regretable. He has no idea how regretable it will truly day soon the price will be paid for their actions.

Then we will have peace on earth. At long last. Come Lord Jesus, come quickly.

Fanning the flames of hatred, racism and division:

My dear sister FF

Thank you for your kind words. Your diligence amazes me. You are my inspiration all the time. Keep watching and I will be watching with you to the better end.

This clip resonates with my spirit and I believe it does with that of yours.

Stay blessed and keep looking up.

Greetings Annon, I liked your words of 'better end' rather than 'bitter end' because the end of this system of things will be a good thing. I watched that video linked and while most of the message was acceptable, it creates a sense of fear while saying do not fear and mixed messages confuse me. I went to their website and at the beginning it says destruction and judgment are coming because of the land being divided in Israel and I don't believe that is sound doctrine but used to mislead. Just my humble opinion according to my heart.

The world just keeps getting stranger. Canada plans mock IED attacks in DC Sept. 23-24 to show what 'Canadian soldiers are doing in Afghanistan' and something just doesn't sit well with that scenario either. Some 2,000 students have H1N1 within the first two weeks of school at Washington State Univ., which just 'shows how fast this virus can spread.' The article I read had a few comments posted from people who oppose Obama's healthcare reform who believe Obama is spreading the virus in order to pass 'Obamacare' and they are extreme enough to prefer death, preferably Obama's, than to have this happen.

Over 350,000 people in W. Africa are displaced by torrential flooding and the suffering is compounded. At least the fires in CA are now about 50 percent contained, and hurricane Jimena's damage was minimal.

Kucinich is making calls for the end to the Afghanistan war, and for the first time supposedly more people are showing disproval. The AP released controversial pictures of a soldier dying/killed in Afghanistan against the family's wishes and Gates is very unhappy about the ugly truth of the ugliness of war being published - ruins the sanitation that has been so carefully guarded for eight, dreadfully long agonizing years. A white house adviser to Obama has resigned and had some affiliation with '911 truth.'

Interesting times. Even seen some headlines that read a court is allowing a detainee to sue Ashcroft, and another headline at Raw Story was questioning if Bush could land in jail. Just the mere fact that it was being posed felt like a glimmer of hope although highly unlikely, a glimmer just the same. It's a nice thought.

Interesting article:

Stay blessed and keep looking up:

Luke 12:1-3 (King James Version)

1In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.
2For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.
3Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.

Amen. It is going to be simply amazing.

Love and peace in His name.

Ali, I am so glad you could take time from your busy schedule and post that link about iconology. Everything they do is for a reason, no matter how innocent it may appear. Hidden signs and secret agendas for they love the darkness.

...'pharmageddon' - I like that. Is it going to happen, or is it just hype and propaganda. They believe they can undertake this endeavor they have been set on because they are so deceived, and it is written; what has to come so it can pass.

Signs of the times are everywhere, unlike Obama!

Love and peace to all.

Speaking of symbolism.

Interesting excerpt:

I asked Hill, "Why now?"

"Eight years from 1993 to 2001, eight years from that 9/11 to this 9/11," he said. "Symbolism. They're big on symbolism."

"Ramadan started two weeks ago Saturday," he said, referring to the Muslim holy month of fasting. "It always hits around Ramadan."
